Sweet April showers. Do spring May flowers. - Thomas Tusser, 1557 I will forever remember May 2016 as the month where I celebrated a lot of milestones - at work mostly, but it's also my wedding anniversary month so I'm really overflowing with love and gratefulness! Let me share with you some of last month's highlights: A tour of the National Museum of the ... READ MORE

Best Selling Korean Products are now in Manila through NWorld!

P1360234_b

Celebrities and beauty junkies swear by the instant effects of Korean beauty products.  I have been doing my research on them for a while now so when I heard that there’s finally a Philippine-based distributor for them, I grabbed the opportunity and bought a package immediately. However, I think I got more than what I bargained for.  I was just supposed to buy the products ... READ MORE

The Business of Fast Fashion

fast_fashion_sale

It's the end-of-season sale once again and at Glorietta last weekend, I saw lots of clothing shops on sale frenzy (again!), giving discounts to as big as 70%.  These shops already gave huge discounts in their last summer sale, and here they are at it again. I wonder at how these merchants earn profit.  What's the mark-up then when they can slash prices off to as much as ... READ MORE

Holiday Gift Idea: Arm Candies!

P1120597b

Who wouldn't fall in love with these stackable arm candies? I found them today at 168 Mall in Divisoria while looking for the perfect holiday gift to my office colleagues.  95% of them are female, so accessories are good choices as they'll sure need these to glam up their holiday looks! I thought of buying the same style I bought for myself some months ago (check out ... READ MORE

Summer Heat Relief Efforts

P1080848b

I did a little shopping last weekend to help me combat the heat wave we're having right now: Although I always have my hair in a bun using big hair claws,  I still feel hot and uncomfortable. With the weather at 34-36 degrees Celsius everyday, the simple hair bun doesn't help anymore.  So I tried a mid-high hair bun using the hair claws and while that greatly helped in ... READ MORE

Shopping Galore at 168 Mall Divisoria

P1080624b

I love Divisoria!  This is my shopping mecca for clothes, housekeeping items, art and craft materials and everything in between.  Like other 168 Mall shoppers, I am drawn not only to the variety of commodities available and their wholesale prices but the place itself - it's clean, organized and air-conditioned, just like in a mall! What I enjoy most in shopping at 168 Mall ... READ MORE

Hello Kitty London x Marks and Spencer

My happy purchase last weekend: It's a Hello Kitty body spray from Marks and Spencer!  A bit pricey at P395.00 for a scent that lasts for only half a day but who cares?  It has Hello Kitty and my favorite city in it and I just have to get it for my collection! Check out more of the Hello Kitty products exclusively made for Marks and Spencer here.   ... READ MORE
