Veloci White Summer 2015 Wrist Candies

Remember my daily luxe finds from Veloci not too long ago? :)

I just had my collection updated at the recently concluded Veloci White Party at The Palace Pool Club with their latest models and I’m super stoked! *hearts all over*

Veloci Cruise in White <3
starts at Php 2250, this model costs Php 2650

For fans of laid-back and low-key statement pieces, the latest Cruise collection comes in different punches of color, with integrated silicone straps. The minimalist designs of case and matching colors for the dials and strap exude effortless style and substance. Colors available for the collection are red, blue, black, and pink for stainless steel case version; black for gold PVD version; and black and blue for rose gold PVD version. For a journey with no itinerary, these pieces are sure to let you Cruise through life and take you wherever you please.

Nikki, Angela, and I showcasing the latest models from the Pulse, Cruise, and Voyager ranges

Nikki’s wearing the gray and black Pulse model that’s perfect for active individuals who are passionate and big on self-expression. This range is proven to be one tough cookie! I broke mine into various oceans and even gone caving in Sagada and it’s in pristine condition since November 2014 when I first got it. The new models have dual time display, stopwatch and alarm, equipped with an illuminator and a fuss-free rubber strap. Comparing to my bright teal blue Pulse watch, the new models come in combinations of black and blue, black and red, all black, and white and gray. It’s truly a travel must have for me as it allows me to be on the fly without worrying about my timepiece.

After scouring over countless models, the usual suspects zeroed on the range best fit for the travelers in all of us:

Widely popular with seafarers and other marine enthusiasts, Voyager watches show the exquisite taste of their wearers through their unidirectional rotating bezel and lavish dials with day-date display. In sizes of 40 and 44mm, six new color configurations with matching silicone colored straps are out: black and grey for stainless steel; black and white for gold PVD version; and black and blue for rose gold PVD version. For those who love to go deep, sail the world and quench their thirst for adventure and knowledge.

SM Ladies Night

Easily, this post can also be called “the sale you NEVER want to miss”. A day or two before the actual sale, I was wandering around SM Makati when I saw these signs:

Last April 15 (aptly, a Wednesday aka. ladies’ night), all lights turned up when SM Woman and GTW by SM announced the much awaited 50% off on ALL items. Yes, ALL! Naturally, the shoppers  (yours truly included) have gone cray. :) Case point:

I naturally zeroed on my dailies:

TRESemme Split Repair x Rhett Eala

There are collaborations and there are COLLABORATIONS.

This summer, TRESemme has teamed up with Rhett Eala to gift is loyal customers a piece of fashion every time they protect their hair from immense damage caused by splitting. How so?

Inspired by the new TRESemme Split Repair range, Rhett Eala crafted the versatile clutch below. The sherbet toned brush strokes against ivory white canvass was actually drawn by brushes made out of human hair that’s treated with TRESemme. After treating the split strands with TRESemme Split Repair, each strand was bound to up to 88% and came out to be salon gorgeous hair with less split ends.

Gone are the days when the only remedy for split ends is a haircut. TRESemmé Split Repair is an innovative new range by the brand known for salon-grade and stylist-tested hair products, which allows you to wear long salon gorgeous hair, without the trouble of split ends. With its revolutionary sealing mechanism Repair Complex, TRESemmé Split Repair binds up to 88% of split ends, while repairing and preventing further damage with continued use.

Just as all TRESemmé products are used by professionals, the NEW TRESemmé Split Repair range was tried and tested by the industry’s top hairstylists. For this exciting new line, hairstylist to the stars Lourd Ramos and his team did the Brushstroke Test to show proof of its split end repair. Two brushes were made out of human hair; one was treated with TRESemmé while the other was not. These same brushes were then used to paint brushstrokes to show the difference salon results can make. With TRESemmé, you get finer and smoother strokes – proof to its split end binding technology. Now, you can have long, salon gorgeous hair every day.

TRESemmé Split Repair is available in leading supermarkets, department stores and drug stores. To learn more about the latest salon innovations, follow them on Twitter (@TRESemméPH) with the hashtag #SalonGorgeous.

Rustan’s Welcomes Baby Henri!

When my good friend Sabs announced that she’s expecting a baby boy, our beauty blogger barkada was over the moon for her and her hubby. She’s at the top of her #bblogger game, got another baby in tow (Nekkid Beauty!), and really — a healthy baby’s just the icing on the cake. In the day and age where everything’s fast and rather furious, any help would be much appreciated. In Sabs’ case, she hollered on Rustan’s Weddings & Beyond to whip up a baby shower registry for her.

Just some of Sabs and Henri’s wishlist displayed at Rustan’s Weddings & Beyond Makati

I’ve been to numerous occasions where the celebrants were registered in Rustan’s. Haven’t we all? :) Whenever I ask them why they chose Rustan’s, their number 1 answer is “why not?”. Dubbed as the best “one-stop-luxury gift shop” for all occasions, Rustan’s Weddings and Beyond has proven time and time again to be the top choice when it comes to luxe bridal, children’s, and gift registry choice in the country with its personalized customer service as its signature edge. When one’s registered with Rustan’s Weddings and Beyond, they also provide free of charge announcement cards for registrants and even a sweet offer of 10% Discount Card for registrants and their guests. For brides, there’s an even sweeter deal — upon registration, you also get a free Rustan’s Frequent Shopper Plus (FSP) card. My favourite treat? Each present is handled with TLC where it’s wrapped to perfection and delivered for free within Metro Manila and Cebu. Return and exchange of gifts are also accommodated within 30 days after the registrant’s event date.

How pretty! <3

 In Sabs‘ case, she had her presents delivered to Raffles Makati where we had a noisy & shala afternoon tea party. These cuties greeted me as I walked in:

Daily Luxe: Veloci

If it’s not yet very obvious, I’m a huge watchaholic. I haven’t really delved on in depth watch reviews here in the blog but my Instagram’s  (@phoebeannramos) filled with various arm parties with watches (of various sizes, styles, and price points) being the centerpiece. I always loved the feeling of handling and clasping on a brand new watch, something I definitely got from Gov. :)

I recently discovered Veloci and mannn where was I when this came out in Manila?!? It’s love at first sight try! For starters in need of an everyday watch that’s versatile and can be dressed up or down by changing the straps (only Php 300 per extra strap!), you can start with Voyager. Below is the 44mm (there’s also a 40mm version) in Silver. Such a sulit wrist candy for only Php 3650!

Gray on gray. On gray. <3
