A Splash of Summer by Sample Room

Sample Room, being the ultimate “invisible thread” between me and my #bblogger gal pals, decided to whisk us away from the urban jungle and take us to Pico De Loro for a day of nothing but good vibes. For starters, wouldn’t a pair of Elements Slippers in the mail boost your mood? :)

 How about this kind of problem:

My kind dilemma: choosing a luxe piece from a rack of Soak Swimwear

I ended up with this smoldering number from their latest collection:

I got to wear it the week prior underneath my diving suit at Cebu. I found out that it’s perfect for both lounging and active ocean wear. Super flattering too! :)

Apart from the sign above, this beautiful view welcomed us:

If we’ve known each other for a good while, you’re probably well acquainted with my arm party/wrist candy fancy. I’m bad with strings that’s why I stick with my metals and leather. The shinier and heavier…the better! :)

Watches on the left, baubles and bands on the right. Mmmm.

Not too long ago, I added a couple of “trophy” pieces on my luxe list. One of them might take double-digit years (to maybe never! LOL) to achieve since it’s worth $33K+ (*gasp*). Two of them are on the more affordable side and one of them’s readily available here in Manila. The watch below is by SEVENFRIDAY.

SEVENFRIDAY P2-1 deets *swoon*

Steel, industrial plants, engines, machines, wheels—the brand’s universe, as well as its designs, are strongly inspired by these elements. The products’ design is a result of these inspirations in combination with high-end production and complex construction. It is a merger of contrasting materials and styles in harmony. The products clearly target individuals with a discerning taste for quality, design, and uniqueness.

The wristwatches of Sevenfriday are built on two major elements: the box and the interface. The box, made of stainless steel, refers to the complex construction of the protective casing. Its shape and style lies between the modern and the classic, creating an exciting atmosphere. It is surrounded by an animation ring made of aluminum, enhancing its haptic and visual appeal.

Within the box, you can find the interface, which consists of hands, discs, dial, and the watch movement. All the indicators are designed and arranged in way to bring the complexity of the movement to the surface. The dial alone is made up of five separate pieces or layers, with eleven different applications. This complex construction attracts and fascinates the spectator.

If you love the industrial look and feel of over sized watches, you will lust over SEVENFRIDAY. The luxury of perfection and exclusivity (for me) totally rationalizes their limited collection range. Still looking at the roster below, I think there’s one SEVENFRIDAY time piece fit for every watch collector. :)

Bollicine Collection by Jewelmer Joaillerie

Over bubbles and crisps, I’d like to show you a little major lemming I can’t quite shake off:

Bollicine earrings, Jewelmer Joaillerie Margherita collection circa 2012

I was ready to kiss it adeiu when this Lunar New Year, Jewelmer re-designed it and relaunched as a key lust object in the sparkling Bollicine collection.

Featuring lustrous South Sea pearls framed with scintillating diamonds, Bollicine is a hallmark collection in the brand’s 30-years of high jewelry and craftsmanship. The symbol of infinity is evoked in gleaming circles of 18-Karat gold, cascading down to dance in anticipation of an auspicious Lunar New Year.

To further entice my lemming heart, it even has an equally beautiful, complimenting necklace.

*jaw drop*

I’m currently saving up for my Eurotrip and with this duo, I don’t know if I can make the trip happen late this year! Eeep!
