Shopping LVL: ASIAN (Not a 9gag post)
What do you usually wear when you’re going shopping? Normally, I like to be in my “lazy attire” and when I say lazy I mean pambahay (house) clothes and flip flops because I get so stressed about the thought of carrying huge shopping bags and walking around the mall all dressed up with my usual 5-inch stiletto pumps.
But last week, Vern, Patrish, Danah and I were convinced to shop in style at The Mall of Asia. The photo above looks like we’re about to enter a club or a cocktail party because we were all in heels!
Black Chiffon Top & Leopard Mullet Skirt from HEIR | Bag PRADA
I hate my big arms so I’m really fond of sheer cover ups so I don’t have to worry when our bipolar weather suddenly becomes warm.
Layered 2 bib necklaces from SM Accessories. I swear, their stuff are so classy but inexpensive. I rarely find myself shopping for accessories at Hong Kong anymore since I discovered how much they have leveled up their designs!
YSL Tribute-insipred shoes from Parisian. Got these during the Bloggers’ Pictorial party. Every time I wear it out, my friends ask me how much I got them for. They assume that it’s from some expensive brand. :> We walked around the whole mall from 1pm to 6pm and my feet were still alive!!!
While we were strolling around, I got separated from the girls because I checked out the sale stuff at The Body Shop. You’ll see why I got distracted when I post the sale items tomorrow!
Good thing I bumped into David Guison and dragged him to our flock. Teehee.
He’s really one of the girls, don’t you think? :)) Sorry for the torture!! :))
Here’s a group photo from Maldita. I got a few nice party clothes and clutch bags there. So excited to make an outfit post using the asymmetrical one-sided leather dress! XD
Here’s the BIG secret on how you can also shop in style at The Mall of Asia… Request for a personal package pickup!!!! It really saved my feet because all those heavy bags would have made it harder for me to shop! And the best part is, this service is FREE OF CHARGE! Just request for one at the concierge! :)
After a long day of shopping, the girls and I (plus David) went to Lugang Cafe for our super late lunch/ early dinner. I gotta admit, their xiao long bao is by far the BEST in Manila!
Everyone was busy tweeting/ instagraming/ Facebook-ing while waiting for our orders.
Yiheeee Pat, who are you texting!? :p
I bet David is asking his blockmates for tomorrow’s assignment.. :)) I still can’t believe that he’s still in college! I feel so old. ;__;
Don’t forget to shop in style at The Mall of Asia’s end of season sale from July 6-15!!
If the package pickup service doesn’t convince you to wear heels, I’ll carry you myself! haha juuuust kidding! Hope to see you there!! :)
Parisian Bloggers Pictorial Party | Catwalk Cosmetics Summer 2012 Makeup Workshop
I was invited by Parisian Bags and Shoes to participate in their Bloggers Pictorial Party at Elite Studios in Makati. We were asked to choose two pairs from their summer collection and model one of them for the campaign.
Parisian Bags & Shoes has been in SM for as long as I can remember. My mom told me that she also wears Parisian shoes during her teens and she’s quite impressed by how their style has evolved.
A lot of their designs are inspired by luxury brands. I immediately thought of YSL Tributes when I saw these bright yellow and orange stilettos. Can’t wait to get my hands (and feet) on these babies!
The Bloggers Pictorial Party was a very private and intimate event. It is one of the most impressive events I’ve attended up to date. We were all relaxed, pampered and the Parisian team was very accommodating! Our makeover was done by Jaime of L’Oreal Paris (hair) and Bobby Carlos (Max Factor).
I must admit, it’s been a while since I tried using Max Factor. We got to take home their lip tint lipstick and I’ve been using it since then. Expect a review on that soon! :)
Here are a few takes from the shoot:

I was quite nervous because all the other fashion bloggers were so sexy and I’ve been on a food binge spree since the year started. But I tried my best to pose with my different personalities.
Here’s one photo of me trying to pull off a seductive look. My chronic b*tch face is showing. *o*
And here’s my trademark “semi-opened happy mouth smile” haha! Obviously, I asked them to use this for the bloggers campaign.
Speaking of the campaign, I have a small favor to ask from everyone. Parisian Bags & Shoes will be giving 20k worth of products to me and my readers (yes, you!) if I’m one of the top 3 bloggers with the most # of votes.
After Clicking, it will be easy to find my page then hit vote THRICE A DAY! I know I have a small chance since I’m more inclined to beauty blogging than fashion but it would be so nice to win an online contest for once.
I’m way behind with the # of votes because I haven’t posted anything about this in any of my pages. I only found out that the contest had already started when I returned from Hong Kong last night. So can you help me? Pretty please??? :)
Like I said, I’m waaaay behind schedule with my posts and my next makeup workshop will be held 10 days from now. (April 21, 1-5pm, Pasig City) Trust me, it will be a fun and interactive session with skin care, contact lens care and of course, makeup lessons. Plus there will gifts worth over 2k from sponsors like Freshlook Contact lenses, Nivea Sun, Garnier, Extreme Finds, Tonic Bags and Shoes, SugaRush Cakes and Dove Hair. Since it’s a little last minute, I’ll be giving 10% off the price if you can enroll with the special discount codes from the 2 guest fashion bloggers.
Can you guess who? Watch out for our blog entries tomorrow! You can text 0917-8929289 for inquiries if you want to register immediately.
CLUE: They look like twin angels. ;)
I hope everyone enjoyed their holy week vacation! Don’t forget to **VOTE FOR ME AT THE PARISIAN CHALLENGE** ;D
