I won't be making a year-ender post this time because to be honest, this year was all a blur. So much happened, and they all happened quickly. So much joy, pain, frustrations, triumphs. I'm just too tired and too lazy to look back and unearth my emotions. Haha. This time, I just want to look forward and hope for the best. :) So, on the last day of the year, I will be sharing with you photos and stories from our first day in the beautiful city of Tapei, Taiwan while secretly daydreaming and wishing for more travels next year. :)
One of my favorite means of de-stressing is treating myself and my nails, hands and feet to a relaxing pampering session. I love keeping my nails clean and pretty. Hihi. I just might have found my new favorite hideout, the newly opened NAILANDIA salon along E. Rodriguez! Here are photos from my visit...
When it comes to comfort and style, BATA is a footwear brand that resonates after all these years--- 120+ years to be exact! This Czechoslovakian brand has been around since 1894 and I'm happy to announce that they recently opened their FIRST store here in the Philippines! In partnership with SM Retail, the launch was held last December 2 at SM Megamall. The “grand launch” was organized to involve Filipino families from all walks of life, and the wide range of products offers something for all kinds of lifestyles. It was a real shopping party, chock full of activities and holiday surprises. Here are photos and stories from the launch!
A few weeks ago, I was able to check out the new Yellow Cab & Jamba Juice concept store in Shangri-La Plaza Mall with Nico and my cousins. It is very easy to locate! It's inside the old Shangrila wing, in front of Zara, same location as the old French Baker. The two brands are now sharing a space to create a seamless system that allows customers to easily enjoy the tasty offerings of both brands and satisfy their cravings in one go! Here are photos from our visit...
Most of you may not know, but Unarosa is a brand that is very dear to my heart. They have supported me as a blogger and stylist since 2011. Grabe noh? Can't believe it has been that long! Over the years, I saw how the brand grew in terms of expansion and merchandise, and I could say that this year was really one of their milestones. With their 10th store opening in SM Megamall (it was actually more of a relaunch and relocation) and a collection that is to die for, Unarosa really came and conquered a lot of fashionista hearts. :)
After sharing with you my Taiwan travel & budget tips, it's time to officially start our (yes, kasama kayo! hehe) journey/adventure! As I said in my first post (click link above), I bought our Taiwan plane tickets from Cebu Pacific last June, on sale. We only paid P4800 each for a 2-way ticket. AirAsia now offer cheap flights to Taipei, so be sure to check that out! You just gotta be patient when looking for cheap flights. ;) So anyway, here are photos and stories from our first night in Taiwan, once known as Formosa-- which means "beautiful island". Also find out why I fell in love with this place, maybe even more so than Hongkong. Let's go!
When it comes to holiday (or party) dressing, one brand that tops my list is Ever New Melbourne. They just have something for every occasion! From casual mall outings, dinner dates, weddings, reunions, holiday parties. I love how every piece of clothing in the store exudes class and glam. They recently launched their newest store in SM Aura Premiere through a super fun VIP shopping party! Now, you southern girls (or even if you're not from there) could shine this season wherever you go. :) Here are photos from the launch, as well as a sneak peek of their new collection!
