Last Thursday, October 1, 2015 I was invited to witness the exclusive preview of what the latest collection of UNIQLO is all about.  

Hosted by one of the most talented women in the industry,
Ms. Bianca Valero

 UNIQLO offers its special collection only in its large stores in Metro Manila – SM Megamall, SM North Edsa, SM Aura and SM Mall of Asia. These branches have the widest and most complete selection of apparels for women, men, kids and babies. The stores carry limited-edition pieces from international brands and designer collaborations such as DISNEY Magic for All, Ines De La Fressange, and UNIQLO’s most recent partnership with French fashion designer Christophe Lemaire.


The UNIQLO and LEMAIRE collection represents products that embody the LifeWear concept – simple made better –  that is shared by both brands. Every item combines elegance with moderate relaxation and comfort, for modern and advanced wardrobe mainstays.

The much-anticipated collaboration showcases UNIQLO’s high quality materials at a perfect price. Sophisticated yet accessible, it offers a timeless color palette of greens, navies, whites, and reds. The men’s and women’s collections will be available in SM Megamall and SM Aura, two out of UNIQLO’s four large stores starting October 2 until the end of Fall Winter 2015.

UNIQLO and Ines De La Fressange Paris
In 2013, former fashion model and muse of designer Karl Lagerfeld, Ines De La Fressange re-launched her own brand, INES DE LA FRESSANGE PARIS, a luxury lifestyle brand that includes a wide range of products to create a truly Parisian style, from ready-to-wear apparel to interior decorations.

Forward to 2015, Ines combined her interest in UNIQLO’s LifeWear with her unique sense of style, based on refined feminine beauty and authentic quality. The UNIQLO and INES DE LA FRESSANGE 2015 Collection Fall and Winter Collaboration employs wool and other natural fabrics in a variety of styles and colors. Ines’ jackets for this season retain traditional tailoring, while offering the modern comforts that women want. 

Now there is good news to those who have kids and who are also kids at heart.

Disney MAGIC FOR ALL Collection 
The MAGIC FOR ALL 2015 Fall Winter collection offers a wide range of products from Ultra-Light Down, fleece, flannel shirts, and UTs, to plush toys, umbrellas, room slippers and more. The collection features Walt Disney’s beloved characters such as Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, as well as popular characters from Star Wars, Disney Pixar, Toy Story, Marvel’s Avengers and Frozen. 

This is my friend Angel from When in Manila. Grabbing this opportunity to thank her for accompanying me that night. :)

Please do not forget that UNIQLO is on sale from October 2 - 8, 2015.

But beyond all our adoration for clothing and fashion let us be guided by what God says from 1 Peter 3:3-4 ESV:

"Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious."

I hope to meet all the hidden persons reading this blog someday and know so much of their hearts with imperishable beauty.

Thank you also to Pao Oga and Therese Iglesias of Eon Inc for inviting me to this event.

Last Friday, September 18, 2015 I was invited to witness the launch of the incredible new campaign of one of the leading whiskey brands here in the Philippines, Johnnie Walker.

The campaign is well supported by global rosters from different walks of life including:

Emil Areng

Eva Hakansson, fastest woman on three wheels.

Haas and Hahn, duo that sets awareness for poverty through art.

Jenson Button, Formula One World Champion and Mclaren Honda driver

Jim Beveridge

Jude Law, Award-winning Hollywood Actor

OK Go, American Rock Band.

Johnnie Walker centers the attention of the campaign upon the real life successes of people who credit the power of Joy with taking them further, as the new campaign says, JOY WILL TAKE YOU FURTHER.

Joining these global personalities are two of our very own locals who excel in their respective passions.

Romi Garduce

"Perseverance scaled one summit. My joy conquered all seven,"

The first Filipino to climb one of the Seven Summits, and the ONLY Filipino who has climbed all of them. He is also a scuba dive master, environmentalist, writer, and motivational speaker who continues his career as an IT professional while pursuing many different passions.

Saab Magalona

"The love for listening gave me the mic. My joy made the music."

A daughter of one of country's iconic personality, Francis Magalona. Host, actress, blogger, photographer, model and one of the lead vocalists of Cheat.

Jon Good, Diageo Philippines General Manager
He said, "As a brand Johnnie Walker has always stood for progress - it's been the story of our whiskey since our founder John Walker started it all nearly 200 years ago. What two centuries of experience have taught us is that progress doesn't have to be an endless uphill journey - we can enjoy the steps we take and the more happiness we find in them the more likely we are to achieve our goal. Evidence is confirming a conviction that sits at the heart of our brand: Joy will take you further."

I have a fair share of my source of Joy here just stalk me in my instagram, lol.

Dr. Matt Killingsworth, a US-based psychologist said, "People sometimes think of happiness as a far-off, distant prize only to be won by their years of hard work or when they achieve conventional markers of success, like a higher income or a bigger house. But there is a growing body of evidence that enjoying happiness along the way makes success more likely."

and beyond all the contribution of these people about Joy I'd like to end this blog post with this:

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds" -James 1:2

We Never Go Out Of Style

Two weeks ago I went to Cebu for a weekend but not for leisure but because we have to attend to a convention, of course I took the opportunity to dress up lol! Cebu doesn't have that cool breeze compared with Baguio or Tagaytay but I am wearing a cardigan (which my bestfriend Jay gave to me) because it is cold inside the convention room, I just felt like I needed to clear that out haha!

Being part of the working class means you need to study more because a lot of things are getting to be more detailed and going to conventions like this are necessary. Remember that education is a continuous process that you should not take for granted kids because knowledge and skills are great investments that cannot be stolen from you.

Though of course after the convention we get to explore a bit, sayang naman kasi if we don't right? So we just threaded through the City since there's really not much time and we got to do the Sky Adventure, went to Magellan's Cross and to the Bay which Magellan died. No regrets though because I'll be coming back there by mid March and can't wait to see more of Cebu!

Shades (Topman), Black Pattern Shirt (H&M), Grey Knitted Cardigan (H&M), Black Leather Belt (SM Accessories), Teal Full Length Pants (H&M), Brown Leather Time Keeper (Fossil) Socks (Topman) and Black Leather Shoes (Bradford).

 A week ago I was invited by Centro Escolar University - Makati to give a seminar on the "Art of Blogging" as part of their 10th year anniversary series of celebration with other bloggers, Mr. Marcelo Santos III (who has more than 1 million followers on facebook), Mr. Paul Chuapoco and Ms. Dani Barretto.

With Mikyle Quizon, Dani Barretto, Marcelo Santos and Paul Chuapoco. Yes, medyo nakakapressure to be with these people grabe!

College was indeed the stage of my life where I was really molded into the person I am today, just thinking about all the struggles I had to go through like MedTech stuff then because I am a very active student I decided to be part of the University Student Council-Makati (USC-Makat), then came by the birth of Right on the Verge when I was in my third year.

Going back here as a guest speaker is really such an honor. You know how they say that "It's not always what the school can do to you, but what you can do to your school" well for me I think they should always come hand in hand. Choose a university that you think can mold you into the person you want to be not just academic-wise but also culture-wise so that the potential in you can be best formed and that when you finally graduated you can use all those things to best represent your school and that of course, yourself. I believe this is how my current relationship with my CEU-Makati is.

Ok, by the way, I just want to reiterate that even though I had a lot of things going through back in college I always had my academics prioritized. Academics first ok guys?

 Lots of selfies happened that day lol including this one with Paul and Mikyle.
 Then there is this one with Dani and the audience.

Then with my former Student Council Adviser, Dr. Maria Corazon L. Andoy.

Then this is before I get to go to the event with my childhood bestfriend, Jay Michelle Pineda (who is leaving tomorrow for Singapore for good huhu!) and my college bestfriend Loraine Samsin (who is probably making alaga to my godchild right this moment).

By the way college life is so hard and I am very blessed to have a friend like Raine to conquer it with, I don't know how I would graduate without her talaga kasi she is the one to always remind me about stuff sa classes namin like quizzes, assignments, projects and all kasi nga since I was very busy with extracurricular activities.

P.S.: I am very proud of myself kasi this is the day after I got my driver's license for the first time at talagang I drove us off sa BGC from Cavite to do outfit shots of me (I'll show you later just keep reading haha!) tapos EDSA ang route then finally Makati. I am so brave for a first timer.

Super thank you talaga sa lahat ng mga nagpa picture sa akin nakaka overwhelm kasi I thought talaga walang magpapa picture sa akin, eh compared naman talaga sa mga kasama ko diba? Tapos may mga students pa nagsasabi na I insipred them daw at idol daw ako, THAT made my day.

Then here are some of the super cool escolarians who took pictures of me with them (I hope ok lang na nilagay ko to dito sa blog post ko):

Sobrang thank you sa inyo! Nakakataba ng puso. :)
And if it's ok here are my outfit shots sana di kayo maumay hehe!

Time Keeper (Fossil)

 White and Gold Shades (You Are What You Wear "YAWYW"), Capsule Necklace (Aldo), Eye Candy Bracelets (Aldo)

Denim Long Sleeves Button Down (Elevate Apparel)

 Teal Full Length Pants (Springfield) and Beige Oxfords (Zara).

I hope you liked what I pulled off together!
