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

All About The Bling by Kenneth Cole New York

Whether you’re still in denial or otherwise, the holiday season has truly taken a bite off our calendars and its cheer and dazzle is here to make everyone merry and bright! :)  For arm candy addicts, your fashion strings will be pulled by legendary New York fashion label Kenneth Cole‘s statement pieces exclusive this season. They’re very sleek, modern, and urban-forward; inspired by the New York skyline, showcasing the glamour of the night, the cutting-edge city life, and the enduring spirit of classic sophistication. Love, love, love! <3


I’ve been a really good girl this year! :) :) :)

David Smordoni, Creative Director for Kenneth Cole New York watches, designed my latest modern classic arm candy. I love how it’s a mix of two things I tote around everyday at work — leather and diamonds. Similar to the rest of this season’s collection, my watch  was built on “contemporary chronology’s quintessential blueprints of transparent and skeleton dials, sparkling pave accents, and burnished brilliant metals”.


Gorgeous ain’t it?


Friendship watches? Why not! :)

Daily Luxe: ROD

There are days when I want to wear babbles on my wrist and some days when I want to toughen it up. When the occasion calls for the latter, I think these ROD watches perfectly fit the bill.

Founded in 2012 by its current CEO, distinguished watch designer and developer Marc Corven in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, ROD had built a remarkable reputation and renown in the international sports watch market. The Swiss brand has been celebrated for its strong design statement, high-quality materials and make, and most preciously, its highly affordable price. Always found with its trademarked screw emblem securing each exceptionally crafted, elegantly finished, and extraordinarily tough timepieces, ROD’s original designs become iconic in their own right. The brand’s great fusion on design and technique makes it a recurring hit at the annual Baselworld.

There are quite a handful of models locally available and these two are my favourites. They’re sweet and slightly tarty, exactly what my lifestyle dictates — part dressy, part sporty.
