Here are exciting news and announcements this magical month!
1. TYLER's NEWEST COLLECTION!
For more than a decade, Tyler has been paving the way for a new landscape in local retail, and their new collection proves just how. Past keeping up with the changing trends in fashion, Tyler has also created it’s own world where the idea of fashion isn’t always about donning the most expensive dress, but being able to enjoy fashion straight up. And as Mendoza would have it, “it's all about being less conscious about what you put on and enjoying yourself. Sometimes, clothes can be too tricky to wear that you end up worrying about the little things. Our new collection is composed of pieces that are just meant to be worn, enjoyed and lived in–in style and luxury.”
Tyler boutiques are located in R1 of Power Plant Mall in Rockwell Center, Level 2 of EDSA Shangri-La Mall, 3rd floor of The Podium, 2nd floor of Glorietta 4, and Adora in Greenbelt 5.

3. Penshoppe's New Personal Care Collection!
After the successful launch of the epic ALL STARS campaign starring global favorites Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester of Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries’ lead star Ian Somerhalder, Asian matinee idol Mario Maurer and Hollywood A-List superstar Zac Efron, PENSHOPPE now expands its product portfolio with the launch of its personal care collection available both in store as well as online.
Other than being the leading trend in local fashion, PENSHOPPE is also popular for its expansive and affordable fragrance collection that suits the different moods of both men and women.
UNLIMITED is an exciting addition this year to the PENSHOPPE fragrance line, with a refreshing yet musky scent for Men and a sweet floral accent for Women. For only P249, be prepared to smell cool and fresh and be inspired with the infinite possibilities UNLIMITED has to offer.
PENSHOPPE’s cosmetic line, the Color Hydradiance collection, also gets a makeover with the launch of two limited edition cosmetic products—Mirage Aqualiner Pencil and Rouge Lip Shade.
Mirage Aqualiner Pencil, a handy and easy-to-apply eyeliner pencil, has the perfect smooth glide to color the lash lines all the way. With three lively variants to choose from—Celeste (white), Nymph (teal) and Royale (purple)— Mirage Aqualiner Pencil promises an eye-popping look to highlight the most striking area of your face. Get a light and sophisticated look for only P149.
PENSHOPPE also allows you to channel your inner vixen into a sexy pout with Rouge Lip Shade, a limited edition collection of red lipsticks. With three rich hues to suit the different skin tones of women—Satine, Scarlet and Sangria, Rouge Lip Shade is a woman’s must-have for that voluptuous pout.
Rouge Lip Shade is fortified with Color Hydradiance factor, a healthy blend of antioxidant benefits from white tea extracts. Each shade is available for only P299.
Capping off the collection is a limited edition 5-piece Makeup Brush Set that contains five soft synthetic hair brushes, which includes a powder brush, eye shadow brush, a sponge-tip brush (for blending colors), a lip brush and a grooming brush for the brows and lashes. The Makeup Brush Set is available for only P399 (as a special promo, if you buy any product from the Color Hydradiance collection, you can get the brush set for a discounted price of P249).
All these plus the entire personal care set are available in all PENSHOPPE stores as well as online via www.shop.penshoppe.com.

4. Xandra Rocha for Jockey
“I want to eat my way around the world!” is not a declaration you would expect from a woman with a slim, svelte figure. But for Xandra Rocha, model and owner of Pinkerton Ice Cream, a passion for good eats makes up a central part of her sunny personality. A graduate of Enderun Colleges, Xandra’s enthusiasm for food is evident in the way her eyes light up when she talks about it. “People get closer because of food,” she enthuses. “When you dine together, it creates more memories.”
As the sole proprietor of a growing homemade ice cream business, Xandra’s days are a blur of orders, customer inquiries, and meetings. She’s constantly working on mini-projects for Pinkerton and thinking up decadent new flavors to delight her customers. She also writes a food column for Business Insight, contributes to other food publications, and is a fixture at food events. Xandra treats her busy schedule as a blessing rather than a nuisance, and is grateful for every minute she spends doing what she loves.
Like everyone else, she has those off days where she becomes tempted to shut herself in and avoid the world. “We all go through those days once in a while,” Xandra admits. “But I remind myself that if I do that, then I would have wasted a day being grumpy.”
To recharge, Xandra treats herself to something indulgent, like a massage or a mouth-watering dessert. But since her work requires her to constantly meet with people, Xandra often turns to dressing well, which in turn boosts her confidence in herself. “If I’m feeling bloated and nothing fits right, I throw on my black Jockey® Shapewear under my outfit and put on a pair of heels,” she says. “It helps me feel more put-together.”
Of all the Shapewear styles, Xandra’s personal favorite is the Slip Shaper, a body-hugging slip dress designed to smooth down curves from the bust until the knee. Aside from its slimming effect, which has helped her look fabulous during her “blah” days, Xandra also relies on the Slip Shaper to provide extra coverage when she wears dresses and skirts that become sheer under strong lighting. Comfort is an important factor too - the material is so soft that she sometimes wears it as a night gown.
Another favorite is the High Waist Brief, a powerful shaper that creates a smooth mid-section while flattering natural curves. Xandra recommends this style for its versatility, seamless construction, and ability to downplay the dreaded “puson”.
As a regular user of Jockey® Shapewear, Xandra knows exactly what to look for in a good body shaper. “Make sure it fits you like a second skin!” she advises. “It should be snug, but not constricting. On the contrary, if it’s too loose, then it defeats the purpose of wearing it in the first place.” As for the color, Xandra suggests buying one that blends well with your clothes. “Choose between nude and black,” she adds. “You can wear nude under pretty much any color.”
Of course, good undergarments are just one ingredient in the recipe for renewed confidence. “’Look good, do good, feel good’ is one of my favorite sayings,” Xandra says. “I feel most confident with myself when I eat healthy, exercise regularly, and get a good amount of sleep.” For a woman determined to travel the world, one bite at a time, she’s certainly going to need all the confidence she can get.
