Better late than never in following the food jumper bandwagon. I never found one that suited my taste (pun intended) until now. This is made of pure happiness!

Speaking of marshmallows, I don’t know why I’ve been feeling so restless and impatient nowadays. I would definitely fail the marshmallow test (of children’s impulse control) if I were to be subjected to it right now. I know it’s only the second day of the month, but I need September to be done and over with as soon as possible!

Kenneth Cole Power Plant Mall Re-Opening Event

Posted on Sunday, 31 August 2014

Last August 15, Kenneth Cole New York celebrated their newly remodeled store in Power Plant Mall. Guests and customers enjoyed free Starbucks and TWG cocktail food and macarons, on top of the generous 15% off discount on all regular items.

Before a long line formed for free coffee. Anything for Starbucks!

With fellow Ponds and Tresemme ambassador Kelly Misa! She lined up early so she was able to leisurely enjoy her coffee while shopping. 

Coffee and shopping? Best combination ever. I love whoever came up with this idea! I can do without cocktails and champagne, as long as I have my hearty cup of coffee to fuel my materialistic urges.

With Patricia and Ira. Bloggers camwhoring in front of a mirror? So groundbreaking, lol

Kenneth Cole’s Look Good, For Good is not just your ordinary hipster-looking photogenic sign on the store’s window display.

The Kenneth Cole foundation supports a number of organizations that provide education, shelter, aid, and other nurturing efforts to build talent (among other things) with Collective Health, Civil Liberties, and Artistic Activism as their main pillars. They have 30 years of philanthropy history behind them, and this is only one of the many reasons why it will always feel good to look good wearing Kenneth Cole New York.

Another reason, of course, is the high-quality but affordable products that they always offer. All the classic silhouettes and styles that can never, ever go out of style = I covet.

Kenneth Cole has great men’s shoes! Wish these were available in women’s sizes too!

image

The current selection highlights these strappy sandals for all the normcore/anti-fashion girls out there. Who needs heels when you’ve got fashionable flats?

image

Would’ve gotten the black pointy pumps if only my feet weren’t too small for the smallest size, huhu. #smallfeetproblems

This style incorporates the 925 (a play on “nine to five”) technology that Kenneth Cole is known for. Every woman can wear these 925 shoes to work, at work, and after work. No need for an extra pair of walking shoes!

image

Our shopping spoils! You can never have enough black and pointy shoes!

image

Thought of getting this bag too! The color is beautiful, and I’m such a sucker for boxy-looking bags that look like they have enough room to stuff your whole life inside.

Thank you Kenneth Cole New York for inviting me to your re-opening event! They improved their store’s appearance, and now it’s everybody’s wardrobe’s turn!

In the Philippines, Kenneth Cole New York is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc. (SSI) and is located at The Power Plant Mall, BHS Central, Rustan’s Makati, and Shangri-La Plaza Mall.

Obsessed with my new tulle skirt from New York designer Alexandra Grecco! 6 layers of tulle AND fully lined. It’s so hard to find good quality tulle skirts nowadays. I’ve always wanted one that was also long enough to cover my knees. Anything for that full princess effect. I think I want it in other colors too.

I tried to style it with Carrie Bradshaw in mind, but opted to make the look more casual/wearable (and less ballerina) with a statement tee and some slip-ons. Of course, I couldn’t help but inject some sort of pink in there.

New Nails

Posted on Wednesday, 27 August 2014

So many things to do, so little time. I’ve been so busy lately that I can’t be bothered to go to any kind of salon as often as I used to. I’m itching to change my hair color again, but haven’t had time to visit the nearest Status Salon yet! 

Anyhow, thank heavens for Japanese gel nail salons because my nails can last me a whole month without any chipping or damage. They are definitely more low maintenance than regular polish, albeit a lot more pricey. You get what you pay for though. 

I still go to Kiyosa for my nails, but I heard there are other nailists popping up in the metro recently! 2014 has definitely been a good year for Japanese beauty/lifestyle in the Philippines. Good times.

Kiyosa’s selection of colors and styles! Thinking of choosing something other than pink or nude next month. “BER” season is right around the corner, so I’ll probably do Christmas shades soon.

I’m super predictable when it comes to nail polish colors! I rarely go for bright, striking, or neon shades, and this also reflects on my personal style as well. I have yet to go out of my comfort zone when it comes to anything loud and conspicuous. 

Rieko-san working on my short nails! While you can maximize designs with longer nails, keeping my nails short and square is a personal preference. :D

Otona-poi S/S nails with daisies on my index fingers and little fingers. On the middle of each flower is a little gold charm! I also asked them to place a subtle pearl accent on my middle fingers. 

My nails on the upper left, and the Kiyosa staff’s nails. Everything here is drawn manually (no stickers or stamps used here!), so you can just imagine how steady their hands are!

3 weeks ago was such an ideal time to visit and take photos because most of them have just changed their nails. No nail growth yet!

ありがとうございました!
