Bath to Basics

A few days ago, S and I were welcomed home with a big package from Watson's Philippines:

Who wouldn't be excited to open a package as big as this?? If the box looks awesome, wait 'til you see the contents!

So many products! ♥

Personally, I've tried only a handful of the items they sent but I posted the photo on my Instagram and my friends were recommending products they are using. Obviously I can't try them all in one go so the product posts will be done as I go through each product.

Are there products in the bunch you're familiar with and would want me to try first?

Thank you again to Watson's Philippines! I was excited to take a bath the moment I saw the products :P

Walk in Closet

A few weeks ago, me and my colleagues found ourselves at Walk In Closet (WIC) in Serendra trying on designer dresses.

Walk In Closet is this quaint boutique in Serendra that carries affordable designer clothes. I honestly won't even enter the store, much more consider getting an item from them, if not for the recommendation of a former colleague. WIC is really an amazing store. The dresses are to die for! They carry designer labels so it is a bit on the expensive side but if you're looking for something special, then the store is for you! I love how all the dresses are perfect for that special occasion you need something amazing to wear.

I was so excited about everything, I took a lot of time picking something to get. Choice no. 1 is the green bandage dress in the top photo. Here's option 2:

The black dress from Ralph Lauren was really beautiful except it was a medium and I didn't want to shell out Php 4,400.00 for a dress that was a size big. If they had it in my size, it would have been perfect.

Choice 3 is a last-minute decision:
The blue dress is from Miu Miu and of all the dresses I tried on,  it's the one with the best fit. I didn't like that it was sleeveless but my friends convinced me that it was a very pretty dress which I should definitely get. It does come in an amazing print and fits perfectly so yeah, it'll do :P

Wore the dress to work under a white trench (not in photo) and it works! Love that I can dress it up or down depending on the occasion
I also went home with a royal blue trench coat/dress from BCBG which goes perfectly with my dress and just gives me that Princess Kate vibe. It cost me another Php5,000.00 bringing the total to about Php9,000.00 and I honestly don't spend that much on clothes but once in a while, it's also nice to splurge, especially when it's something beautiful like the clothes from WIC *wink*

It'll be a while before I return to WIC (cause I really shouldn't be spending so much money on clothes) but for what it's worth, I had a great time shopping for dresses there. They do have such a nice selection! Thank you to the wonderful staff for the assistance. I think I may have tried on around 1/4 of the dresses in the entire store. Hehe :P

Next time you're around Serendra, drop by Walk In Closet, you may see something you may take a liking for :)

Gilas, Pilipinas!

We don't usually feature items for men in our blog. But allow me to make an exception this time, just because this item is close to my heart-- the official Gilas Pilipinas Nike apparel:

 Pilipinas, for the win!

Gilas Pilipinas jerseys - Php2,790.00
I don't really understand why men like buying jerseys so much but I'm making an exception this time because it's not just ANY jersey, it's the Gilas Pilipinas National Team jersey! I'm so glad Nike made these available. And not just jerseys! They have the official shirts too!

Php1,500.00 (approximate only!) Sorry forgot the exact price
Php1,290.00 (again, an approximate! cause I can't remember the exact)
I am totally in love with the "Pilipinas Never Stops" shirts. It's so cool! It makes me feel so proud of our team! We don't excel in a lot of sports so I cannot tell you enough how proud I am of our boys and how far they've gone. I am actually tempted to get the Pilipinas Never Stops in white to show solidarity! But maybe giving them as a gift to a guy friend/ brother/ your dad is a better idea :P

I'm so excited for the games! Goodluck to our boys! I am already super proud of all of you! #PUSO #LABAN #PARASABAYAN

Ten X

I cannot believe it's been ten years since Cinemalaya started!--What? It feels like only yesterday when I watched my first Cinemalaya film, Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros. Now, Cinemalaya is on its tenth! Congratulations to the Cinemalaya crew! Philippine Independent films soared high because of you!

In recent years (partly because of this blog), I have been taking outfit photos on the first day of the screenings so it is with utmost glee that I post this ootd now! Tenth year!
The weather has been gloomy so I'm really glad the rain let up so I can take photos outside. There's really no inspiration for this outfit. I just wanted to wear my wedged sneakers and you know much I like bandage dresses and it was rainy, hence the jacket and voila! Instant outfit :) But I do have to admit, I've been very sporty the past months and I know it's showing in how I dress up. It's a nice break from all the girly outfits I'm usually seen wearing.
I wasn't really supposed to wear the jacket anymore but the dress is a bit slinky, and it's backless and that's a little too sexy, even for the cinemalaya crowd, me thinks :P

I haven't seen a lot of films yet cause I got lazy. But I'll do so this coming week. If you see me around, say hi! Sometimes I watch alone so it'll be nice to sit with someone sometimes :)

So I'll see you around, then! #Cinemalaya2014 #CinemalayaX

Starbucks Pilipinas

Going with the whole spirit of nationality and patriotism brought about by the forthcoming Gilas basketball games, let me share with you my newest favorite patriotic item, the Starbucks Pilipinas Card:

Isn't it pretty?? I am totally digging the design! Hats off to the designer *clap clap*. When I saw this at the store, I had to get it immediately. I don't usually follow the Starbucks card designs because I like keeping it simple but I had to get this one because it is the first ever Starbucks country card design and it's only available in the Philippines. The patriot in me jumps in glee!

It looks so much better in real life. If you have the chance, do check it out at the stores. If you don't have a card yet, I believe this is your sign! This is the time to get one! Thank you, Starbucks! I *heart* Pilipinas!
