I ended the 1st of September with a great event from our friends in Shu Uemura and a glass of wine with some of my favorite women in the world.
Picasso Boutique Hotel, 8th Floor - Beauty bloggers and the beautiful girls from Preview and StyleBible were invited to the launch of Shu Uemura Tsuya Skin. Hailed as the number 1 skin care product in Japan, praises sung by top Japanese beauty bloggers and magazine editors, it is now finally here in our country!
We all know that as we age our body starts to slow down. Our metabolism isn't the same when we are in our late teen and early 20's. And so does our skin. We are prone to skin dullness, wrinkles and fine lines since our skin slows down in regenerating. Add to that the stress that we women take on on daily basis.

It's my birthday today! And before my birthday, I decided to do bit of shopping... :)
I was strolling around in Megamall and after a few stops (Forever 21 and Watsons), I saw an accessory shop that I got to blog a few months back called Parfois. I also saw this blogs of Death by Platforms and other noted Filipina fashion blogs. The cat inside me called out to the shiny shimmery accessories inside the store that I skipped the shoe stores that I was suppose to visit for this one.
Parfois is a European Accessories store that offers up to date faux jewelries from bracelets, necklaces, earring and rings. They also have watches, belts, craves and bags. And oh! They nice shoes, too!
Goes to show how long I've been remiss of my shopping duties! There are stores in Megamall I missed. Tsk! Tsk! So not me!
So of course, I shopped! Good thing they have 15% off selected bags on BDO Creditcard holders and they have nice selections of Gold accessories. You know I'm crazy gaga over them.
Love how their accessories are boxed in this tres chic black and pink box.
And the accessories are covered in recyclable paper to protect them from breaking and scratches.
Tada! My new babies! I already hauled too much at Forever 21 (will post my recent F21 loots soon), but these 3 made sure they come home with me! And they did... :)
I love the intricate details and yellow gold of this earrings called out to me. I really wanted to get the gold watch but it was tres expensive. Instead I looked around and saw this at the far corner of Parfois Megamall peeking at the lazy susan jewelry display. Good thing I saw it!
I love florals but I never liked them with shades. This understated almost sculpture-like bronze gold rose earrings is going to go well with all of my outfits!
I like these type of earrings, simple and feminine. Yes! I am very feminine despite my boisterous personality! I love the both heart earrings. I hope the studs were in fold instead.. but hey, I'm aware I can't have everything...
Meet my new everyday body bag, Bronwyn. It's priced at 1800++ but I got it for only 1500++. Thanks to my BDO Mastercard, I got this bag at 15% off. I love the brown shade of this bag and how light it is. Fits all of my things, even my bulky DSLR camera.
I really shouldn't be left alone in a mall. Its almost equivocal to me getting drunk... I hardly have any inhibitions and my hand have its own way of reaching out to my debit and credit card.
But I came home a happy, well accessorized woman....
Now! That is exactly what I call... PRICELESS!
I'm so excited to wear my new gold jewelries soon! Maybe I'll get to rock 'em later during my birthday dinner with the BF. :)

If I were a fashion editor, I would make a spread devoting it to the store of the newly revamped-under-new-management Chocolate Clothing Co. When I was in college, which wasn't so long ago really, Chocolate (as we fondly call it) is one place I always frequent. Not so much to buy since I really can't afford anything in the store with my college allowance, but to admire every piece and to someday find a way that I could finally get myself something from this fabulous store...
And I think that day came when I got an invite to launch of Chocolate Clothing Co. under a new management. Apparently, many people doesn't know that this fab store is Filipino-owned and most of the clothes sold (aside from those with foreign brands) are actually made here in the Philippines! I didn't know know that but what a sweet surprise, right? All this time I though it's an international brand. Hehehe!
