Call me silly and shallow but this trio’s got me all wound up and giddy the minute I saw (or purchased) them. :)
If you’re morena like me, you know how difficult it is to find that perfect melts-in-my-skintone kind of weekend sandals. I found exactly that in FitFlop Arena in Tan. Just like Due, it’s not the most inexpensive pair they sell here in Manila. At Php 5990, IMO, it’s worth sacrificing the fancy coffee and breakfast I would’ve had the last 2 weeks. LOL Gorgeous, extremely comfortable and versatile. I’m a very happy camper!

I’m sad. :( If we met through Female Network’s Girltalk or Multiply (my handle’s phoebeach) way back 2003-2005 then you’d probably understand why I’m greatly affected by the latter’s announcement that it’s moving aggressively towards e-commerce. Sure, I haven’t posted in my Multiply site (where I started blogging) in years but I like going back to my favourite albums every so often to read comments that never fail to brighten up my day. My most popular journal (I took all of them down when I moved to WordPress) entries are all about shopping, ninja shots in the MRT (I posted a photo that garnered over 900 comments!), and naturally, about makeup. Documenting my makeup mishaps and discoveries since 2005, wow, I’m a beauty blogger lola! LOL
Based on page views, my most popular public album is this:
only true MACaholics/Specktra members would understand what’s up with the title
AHHHH to be young and shopaholic! See some of my cannot live withouts way back 2007:
I was without a doubt, fighting acne with all my might
my then daily makeup kit
what I thought were my MAC can’t live withouts

Last Sunday, Fathers Day, I got all mushy and sentimental. While I share my fondness for beauty and fashion with my mom, what you probably don’t know’s that my dad (aka. Gov) shared his talent and passion for music with me at such a young age. Like all 80s kids, I grew to to singing and dancing Madonna’s Material Girl, Like a Virgin, and Papa Don’t Preach in head to toe denims. More than dancing, I (painfully) enjoyed singing. So much so that he actually purchased this set of 4 (or was it 6?) minus one cassette tapes (with song sheets!) from Sharp for us to sing all weekend at the comfort of our home. Give or take 24 years after we learned our first song together, we still sing Closer You and I (Gino Padilla) whenever we get the chance to hold the mic together. :)
an absolute blast from the past sitting pretty here at home
While it will take a lifetime and one to take this memory off my head, I’m glad that Sharp has one way or another made its way into our home. Because of our support and patronage as consumers, Sharp has reached its centennial mark this 2012!
In celebration of their 100th anniversary this September 15, 2012, Sharp has recently launched two campaigns. One is a CSR campaign slated to pay it forward while the other’s something for us to enjoy.
My SHARP Our FUTURE Campaign
From June 7 to September 15, a total of 100 days, Sharp will make a contribution for every purchase of AQUOS TV and Plasmacluster generator/air purifier. The proceeds will go to their chosen organization that endeavors to support health programs that administer vaccines to ensure that the future generation’s well and healthy.
Anniversary Share II
The Anniversary Share II site’s made out of pure fun! It works like a portal where you can upload photos or videos of anniversaries and other commemorative moments of you, your family and your friends. Once uploaded, the system will convert the photos and videos into a film. The film with then be displayed through the website from 16 June – 15 September 2012. If your photo or video ranks up to the top 5 spots, you will receive Sharp products. The grand prize? A trip to the West Coast, USA await two lucky pairs (four people)! Sweet stuff, eh?
Checkout the Twitter hashtag #Sharp100 and visit the Anniversary Share II site (http://share.sharp100years.com) to learn more about the campaign and how Sharp wants to celebrate their 100th anniversary with YOU!
Today’s post is supposed to be something absolutely luxurious, almost icy-swell. My Saturday mornings are usually dedicated to shooting products for the blog and lazy hot cherry blossom tea sips in between. I was ready with a peg of the 9 things I currently can’t live without when one of the photo’s elements started to move like silly.
Gone are the peaceful “product shooting” mornings. =$
Posted on Feb 15, 2012 in Beauty, Geek under: BlackBerry • La Mer
Someone asked me earlier: “What are your pocket must haves?”. I immediately emptied my jeans’ back pocket and I only had two things in it:
my pocket must haves: La Mer The Lip Balm x BlackBerry 9300
To say that I’m connected 24/7′s both a cliche and a fact. My BlackBerry’s helped me catch up with my never ending emails and errr backlogs. On top of that, because I’m on an unlimited data plan, from around Php 6000/month consumption, I now average at Php 1200. More paper for my fancy coffee! :)
Speaking of coffee, I tweet once: if there’s one thing that can keep me off expensive java, it’s got to be La Mer’s The Lip Balm. It might be hella pricey for a lip balm (.32oz, approx Php 2800) but darls believe me: it’s so worth it. I’ve tried a LOT of lip balms since I turned 12, scoured both drug and department stores, spent as little as $1 and as much as $100 but nothing comes close.
To apply, just warm the balm on your fingertips and dab (not glide). One thin application gives me half day’s worth of moisture. Tip: to save the product from bacteria contamination, decant the balm on a smaller pot (that’s why my balm has a hole in the middle). I use a fresh cotton swab to “scoop and transfer”.
I get my The Lip Balm fix from La Mer Rustan’s Makati.
Posted on Sep 29, 2011 in Geek under: Sony • Walkman
Two weekends ago, I got to add another gadget to my workout must-have list:
The wearable Walkman is back and now, it’s 25% lighter than its predecessor weighing only 32 grams and boasting of a smaller and more compact look. Discriminating fashionistas who are looking for a more stylish way to enjoy their music will not be disappointed with its chic design and wide range of colors: from the subtle white and black to the vibrant pink and blue. The NWZ-W262 can be the perfect finishing accessory to an outfit. With no wires dangling around, anyone who wears his Walkman will surely look polished.
What a sport
While being a looker, the new Walkman NWZ-W262 brings with it the same water-resistant and washable features making it an ideal sports buddy. Listen to your favorite music while warming up for an intense game of basketball. Turn up the volume to give you an additional boost to run an extra mile on the treadmill. Go on with your cycling routine even under the rain. Whatever it is, the new Walkman NWZ-W262 will continue to provide the perfect musical score for your active lifestyle.
Aside from this, the compact Walkman is packed with features that make it very convenient to use. It comes equipped with Content Transfer software which enables music lovers to simply drag-and-drop their music from their computer or iTunes library. The Walkman W262 also comes with ZAPPIN song search technology which enables music browsing through a short audio preview of each track. So no need to take your eyes off the road to look for music while running to find the track you are looking for.
Music to last a whole night long
One of audiophiles’ pet peeve is when their MP3 player dies in the middle of their favorite song. With the Walkman W262, you get to enjoy eight hours of uninterrupted music playback when full charged while the Quick Charge function provides music playback of up to 60 minutes with a mere three-minute charge which is perfect for fashionistas on-the-go and those who are living an active lifestyle.
This is me calling out to Santa to get me the Walkman W262 in BLUE
(see how it perfectly matches my bag *wink* )
H and I got to try it (here’s his two cents) and in terms of fit, the Walkman W262 (2GB, Php 3999) is the first in-ear headphones that fit my tiny ears comfortably. Even without the music blasting, the ambient noise around the mall was zeroed out. Failing the marshmallow test, I immediately toyed around the buttons while H tried on the audio. He liked how clear and crisp the music turned out which is definitely a big plus when you’re training your heart to its last pump (who wants continuous player or wire adjustments anyway?). For me, more than the actual function, I like how pretty it looks like. In a sea of white wires and ear buds, the Walkman W262 will definitely make you fashionably stand out.

Just did some toy shopping/upgrading the last 2 weeks and I feel like these tiny pebbles deserve some snap love:
No, my hands ain’t huge — my toys are just tiny!
I’ve had the Canon IXUS 220 HS (Php 13,000) for two weeks now and I’m absolutely hooked! I’ll show you more snaps from my vacay soon to show off its amazing snapping power hiding in its ultra small bod. :)
The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro’s (Php 13,000) from yesterday’s trip to the mall. My beloved Nokia C3 in purple flashed me the WSOD (white screen of death). :((((( I will definitely have it fixed but at the same time, I cannot afford not to have a phone with a mail client. I’ve been lemming for this phone for 3 weeks now and well, I didn’t quite expect that I’d own one this soon. LOL Checkout their slim side panels:
I’m just curious: when shopping for gadgets, what do you consider first? Features? Price? Brand? Colour? Spill the beans!
