Make Your Own Magnum

In this generation all things can be custom made. Things can come out according to your preferences, from bags, clothes, house, cars to food lahat na pwede. So when I heard about this place I make sure I get chance to try their offerings.

Kaligayahan ko na talaga ang ice cream lalo na ngayong summer, just to ease the heat. Hindi lang tuwing summer, kahit in bad mood. Ice cream is the best way to be in good mood.

One Day at Khay’s Desserts and Café

Last Monday I had lunch at the cutest place I ever been, the Khay’s Desserts and Café. Oh di ba bongga cupcakes lang for lunch. Lakas maka girl peg, diet dietan. Pero nung nakauwi, kanin na ang inupakan Smile. Anyways, back to kwento, super cute talaga nung place. Girl na girl ang look. Khay’s is owned by one from Jaro family. Sila yung may ari ng mga pawnshops. Homemade ang cupcakes nila, yung owner talaga daw ang nagbe bake sa kanilang bahay sa Orchard, tapos hinahatid na lang store.

Definitely Japan. Definitely Kojie.san

Grabe summer na naman at panahon na naman para mag step out into the sun. Most of summer activities will require us to get expose sa matinding sikat ng araw. Kasi naman, how you’re going to have fun kung hindi ka magbibilad sa arawan. Di ba? Unless may indoor nang banana boat ride? Smile

Pero after all the summer fun, tan skin na tayo or sometimes nognog. Smile

Napaka vain nating mga Pinoy when it comes to our skin. Lahat na yata natry na natin, at talagang hindi tayo nagpapahuli sa tuwing may bago sa market, lalo na sa whitening products. Bet na bet natin yung maputi. One of these so many whitening products is the kojic. Bago pa umuso ang gluta nauna na ang kojic sa Philippine market.

Throwback muna tayo. Before, I was afraid to use whitening products, takot kasi ako sa side effects at feeling ko synthetic lang ang mga ito. But as I grow, na conscious na ako sa appearance ko lalo na sa skin. Out of curiosity I did some research over the internet about kojic soap and found that kojic acid (which is the main ingredients of kojic soap) is derive from mushroom, so bongga siya dahil natural. Bet ko pa naman yung mga natural products, kasi I got this idea na kapag natural it is safe and effective to use. Kojic is also widely used in Asia, especially in Japan for so many decades. Kaya pala bonggels ang kutis nila, maputi at makinis. Men and women in there actually use it as part of their regular facial regimen.

Nicolas Ghesquière Debut at Louis Vuitton FW 2014 Show

The anticipation for Nicolas Ghesquière as the new creative director for LV is over. This week, he presented his first collection for LV FW 2014 RTW womenswear collection. Classic 60’s style with modern workmanship is the latest vision of the collection. Far away from fantasy as what we seen from past collections of the brand when Marc Jacobs still the director. This time LV latest collection is more luxurious as he said it in an interview for a magazine. Lots of skin showing, and lots of leather, as always, done in Nicolas’ innovative ways. Aside from new clothes, of course we also anticipate the new breed of bags. And here some of the eye candy bags that really caught my attention when I saw the photos in the internet.

A new breed of LV. Nicolas shrink the LV trunk into cute handy pieces. This is the new Petite Malle, a small version of LV famous trunk.



Alma bag in two tone color with quilted leather design. A classic looking bag that surely bet for keeping.


The new Montana bag. This is one of my fave, I love Nicolas innovation to remove the other handle and made into one and place a zip detail on it. Plus the color of it, not so pop but not too bland. Just right to take more years style. A really classic.


For modern women, this structured design bag is perfect for you. A splash of vibrant color mixed with famous LV classic monogram design.


Montana bag with colored piping detail. Another kind for keeps and will take a long run in terms of design appeal.


Another fave piece, Montana bag in quilted leather design.





Nicolas proved the brand need a break from fantasy. With his ideals to bring simplicity and class to produce just beautiful clothes and accessories. So happy to see the brand new genes to provide just luxe and nothing fuzz.
