A Day of Shopping at Kipling, SM Aura | Kipling Pre-Fall 2014



Oh! The overwhelming 90's memories that Kipling brought back when I went to their brand-spanking-new store at SM Aura. It brought me back to elem and high school days when branded things in our generation was truly prevalent! Everything needs to be imported! But more than that, everything must be high-quality. None of those cheap immitations or alternatives.  Yes, I grew up during those times where we saved up for real quality things that settling for knock-off's as often seen in some youths today.

Kipling is one of those brands that we certainly clamored for. I remember receiving a set of different sizes of backpacks from my dad and him telling me that he likes it due to its durability. He probably saw how much books and notebooks I carried. He who goes for function over style every single time she shops for his only child. Good thing that Kipling didn't fall short over the style department because come school time, I got compliments toting those backpacks.

Moving to Pre-Fall 2014 I got a chance to reacquaint myself with this brand and oh how colorful the experience was! The store was brimming with bright hues! There were bright tropical blues, corals, pristine whites and neon shades. It was spectacular!


If you think that the beginning of the rainy season should dull your choices for colors, Kipling and I beg to differ. What better way to insert a dash of bright hues than now when the downpour is about to start. :)


The Gogo bag jumps start planning your next vacay.


Surely, rainy blues is not the way to describe Kipling's Pre-fall collection for 2014. Rather the lively colors will certainly chase those rainy blues away.



Love the perforated designs. :)


Did I mention the coral shades are to die for?


And here's to my favorite color, seafoam green, all bright and lovely!



And just look at that iconic long-armed pouty lips primates that you can tag along where ever?


Check out how creative Kipling fans are with the brand's mascot? I wonder what they'll come up with next!


And let's not forget about theKipling x Natalie Joos Travel Collection. All of us fell for the Youri Spin 68.


Natalie Joos is a Belgian-born New York fashion blogger. She loves sharing her love for vintage fashion on her blog and works as a consultant and stylist. :)


Shopping for the perfect bag at Kipling proved to be a fun feat! So after an hour of checking out the store, I got the Sabin White Perfo. It has the cutest golden charm of the iconic monkey that I just got to have. I know that the upkeep of this bag will prove to be a challenge but I just fell for the clean pristine white color.

Just look at Claud! She let her dear mom shop her heart away while she snoozes ever so prettily while we were at the store. :)


I could have gone for the blue one, though. Maybe next time. :)


Shopping is double the fun when you're with friends. :) Martha and Tara with her here. :)


And yes, there's more! There's Rowena, Michelle, Millet of Kipling Philippines and our dear friend, Jen, who arranged this get together. :)

(can spot the dear ol' hubby taking our picture? hehehe!)

Sp, next time you're in the market for a bag, I suggst heading out to Kipling at SM Aura. Their adorable stylish, casual and functional bags are clearly for the most discerning shoppers. :)

NEW | Maybelline Colorsensational Pink Alert Collection



Just when I thought I have weaned myself from all things pink when it comes to lippies, here is Maybelline out to stir up my addiction with this blush shade with their new Colorsensational Pink Alert Collection.

But gone are the pale, pearly, girly kinds of pink. Nope! What we have here are shades of pink inspired from the runways of New York. This is certainly the run-of-the-mill kind of pink lipsticks. It's more passionate, brighter and edgier. Certainly deserving of our more confident demeanor.

So even if I'm just home all day caring fro little Camilla Claudette, I gave these lippies a try to see if they are as good as they look. :)

How To Get That Pregnancy Glow | The Body Shop Vitamin C Line


Finally cutting the silence and the hiatus! :) I am back in blogging grind! And here's one that's definitely overdue and one I know most of you are anticipating! What skin care am I using now that I'm pregnant?



The pregnancy glow has eluded me and it has eluded me quite well. Actually, it and I have never really crossed paths even when I wasn't pregnant. I always had to fake that youthful glowing skin. That's how it was and I was okay with it. I knew I could find something out there that would help me even in my delicate state.

A lot of you asked me at the beginning of my pregnancy what skin care I was using. I have to be honest, it took a while for me to settle into a certain skin care regimen during my first trimester. I searched for products that are safe for expecting women and one that I could tolerate the scent of...

And so I came across The Body Shop's Vitamin C Collection.  More after the jump! :)

Pamper Yourself | Zenzest Peppermint Foot Care Collection


I hate being on my feet. Y'all know I'm lazy like that. But since it can't be helped, I just had to bear it.. There's the waiting for the cab, cocktail events or simply by waiting in line.

But at home, I'm the boss, the queen, and here I sit.. with a big tub of warm water and ZenZest Peppermint Foot Soak and just let my feet enjoy the playful warmth and coolness of the water and my senses invigorated with clean scent of mint.

Ahh... heaven!




When I got the set of Zenzest Peppert Foot Care collection (Php740), I didn't realize the gem I had at my feet. Literally. By far, it has the strongest and lasting scent of peppermint I own... and I own a lot!


I used to be too lazy to bring in a tub and do the foot soak thing, I immediately jump to the scrub part and then lotion. When I tried the Zen zest Soothing Peppermint Foot Soak (Php120), I apparently was missing out on something special. There's nothing a good foot soak to soothe away the day's stress. Like today for example. Period's hovering near and my work load just keeps on piling up, I can't expressed how good the foot soak was on my tortured feet.


Foot scrub is second least favorite part at is defeats the purpose of relaxing at home and letting the blues drift off. To not be bothered by it, I do this in the shower after the foot soak. Then I proceed to my nightly bathing. Never was I tempted to use a foot scrub all over my body except with the ZenZest Peppermint Foot Scrub (Php260). The coolness of the mint is just so invigorating that I wanted my whole body to feel it! But of course, I didn't... :( 

The scrub is similar to the other body scrub of Zen zest. It's almost gel-like than it is creamy. The grains are apricot kernel grounds which is also great for evening out skintone and is a lot gentler for exfoliation. How do I do it while in the shower? I scrub using Zen Zest Exfoliating Body Scrub in Melon first for the upper part of my body and then proceed to exfoliated my legs, feet and ankles using Zen zest Peppermint Foot Scrub. Rinse as usual.


This is my favorite part. Applying the Peppermint Foot Lotion (Php240). I do this right after I do my nightly beauty rituals and applying body lotion all over my body. I turn on the TV and then give my feet some massage-loving with this tub. Believe me when I say that this will give you a good night sleep!


Similar to how I prep in the morning, Scent is the last and that's when I apply the Peppermint Foot Spray (Php120) all over my feet. Acts as deodorizer, too so I use this everyday before going to work and at night right after lotion application. Again, if I can take this to work with me, I will. It sure would help ease the heat when walking down the street of BGC Central.



I don't usually engage myself in at-home foot spa seeing as how tedious it can get... but lately, I think my feet deserves extra loving. And don't you feel sometimes your body calling out to you to just rest and stop working? Especially now that we barely have time to visit a nail spa or salon. 

If you're looking for a great way to relax and don't have time or budget to visit a salon, then you're in for a treat with the Peppermint Foot Care Collection from Zen Zest. It's even better than those used in expensive salons if you ask me.


When was the last time you pampered yourself?
