Sharing the newest F/W collection of Le Bunny Bleu because it is absolute shoe porn! As I often mention, I’m generally biased towards F/W collections, and this one is not an exception. The amount of holiday colors in this collection is making my fangirl heart beat so fast!
Everything is classy and perfect for everyday use, and you can even own a limited edition Winter Notebook with Crissey's work on the cover if you buy a pair any time soon. Her signature cutesy illustrations are also all over the stores so it makes shopping in Le Bunny Bleu even more enjoyable. Proud BFF moment! I'm Crissey's #1 fan… but you guys all know that already! <3
You can choose which cover to get if you buy a pair from the latest collection. My (obvious) favorite would have to be the girl with roses on her hair! Which Le Bunny Bleu girl is your favorite?
Oxfords that would look great with skater skirts!
I got these spiked zebra ones for myself!
They also recently came out with a new Le Bunny Bleu kids line! I’d totally want to wear matching shoes with my future daughter!
Perfect flats to go with your favorite skinny pants.
High boots for when the weather gets cooler in January/February!
Want the left one so bad!!! The shade of red looks delicious.
For all you pointy toe lovers!
The quintessential Trissey design. I don’t know if we can ever get over sparkly, girly bows!
Wanted to get these too but I have too many oxfords, I think D:
Hope you guys enjoyed that little tour around the Le Bunny Bleu flagship store in Shangri-la East Wing! If you haven’t seen my first post about them yet, you can check it out here. I mentioned that a lot of K-pop stars wear Le Bunny Bleu so you should definitely check the brand out if you’re a fan of K-everything! Crissey is also giving away some notebooks here.
They are having a special ONE DAY SALE tomorrow, November 23. PERFECT TIME TO SHOP FOR YOUR VERY OWN LE BUNNY BLEU SHOES! Enjoy!
If you’ve been following my Instagram closely, you’ve probably already noticed how much of a foodie I am. Blame it on family habits where we bond over good food every chance we get! Dinner is one thing, but desserts (and coffee!) are always an undisputed given when it comes to capping off a long, stressful work week.
I think I got my massive sweet tooth from my mom, who was the first one to actually tell me about Cupcakes by Sonja years ago, when it opened in Serendra. Fast forward to 7 years later, and they’ve finally opened a new branch in Glorietta 2, complete with a new industrial, quirky-modern feel! Thanks to the cupcake gods for answering all our prayers. Soon to open are new stores in Shangri-la, Greenhills, Eastwood, and TriNoma. Us northerners can now join in the fun without having to brave through hours of traffic in the south!
I love them for finally updating the logo though I think I love them more for still keeping the light tiffany blue boxes for their cupcake take-outs! It was wise for them to keep some of their signature qualities, which they have always been known for. It’s not difficult to love something that tastes (and looks) so good. And not to mention, Cupcakes by Sonja was one of the first of its kind to open in Manila. I’m pretty sure they set the standards pretty high!
I was able to sit down with Sonja (pronounced son-jah, not son-yah) Ocampo herself for a quick chat when I visited the store last week, and she was so incredibly precious and inspiring! She is now officially one of my life pegs in the future. I asked her which cupcake was her favorite, and she said it would have to be the Valrhona Flourless Chocolate Cupcake as she absolutely loves classic dark chocolate!
So I took pictures of the new store to share with my readers, because I’m a little evil like that. This entry will definitely leave you craving for a cupcake. Lucky are the ones who just live near Glorietta and Serendra.
Don’t worry about me - I recently got myself 6 Red Velvet Vixens and have only finished 2 so far. 4 to go before I go back to Sonja’s to replenish my cupcake stash!
Don’t you just love the new logo?
The new Glorietta 2 store is located at the second floor bridgeway. What could be a more suitable location than this? Many people pass through this area daily, and it’d be so ideal for people to easily take home a cupcake or two before leaving the area for their homes.
This is just 1/3 of the whole cupcake display in the store. There will definitely be a perfect one for each person. Kids would love the colorful, super sweet ones, while there are also options for the older ones and those who aren’t too fond of getting intense sugar rushes!
Chocolate Surprise (P80)
Berry Delight Strawberry Cupcake (P115)
My favorite red velvets. I seriously haven’t tried anything that has beaten these ones from Sonja. <3 HEARTS ALL OVER!
Yes, I can eat this everyday and not get tired of it. (Though that’s seriously gonna be a recipe for diabetes, lol)
Open kitchen! It was so interesting to watch how they did everything!
Cute details on the walls. It’s the little details the make all the difference, as I always say!
My favorite piece of furniture in the new Sonja’s! Gradient bench! I want one!
Cupcake toppings in the most adorable jars.
Cookies and brownies are also available, not just cupcakes! This must be heaven.
There’s a menu by the counter with descriptions for each of their products. There are non-refrigerated cupcakes, refrigerated cupcakes, mini cupcakes, and other goodies.
Coffee! I got myself an iced caramel latte which was very good. I should try the hazelnut latte next time!
This chair will be the death of me! At sign!
No two chairs were the same in the store, making it such a unique sight to behold.
Vanilla Sunshine (P65). Pastel fluffy goodness that’s sure to attract many girls’ attention!
Peppermint Patty (P72). Tastes like Christmas, which is my favorite time of the year.
S’mores Tart (P88). Layers of rich dark chocolate ganache, marshmallow fluff and honey-cinnamon graham in a buttery chocolate crust, topped a freaaaaking caramelized marshmallow. (I reached my breaking point there. Too much perfection in one cupcake - I can’t deal)
Cookie Monster (P85). There is some sort of cookie dough filling inside that will make your mind blow.
Peanut Butter Nutella (P95). If you don’t love nutella, then shame on you. No, but seriously.
Pistachio Berries and Cream (P120). My latest discovery! Brown butter pistachio cupcake with fresh strawberries and whipped cream icing. Doesn’t get any better than this. <3
I am so happy they are embracing social media now! Makes it easier to share this food porn with everyone. Sorry for the major cupcake spazzing - I’ll stop now! But I really cannot wait for it to open in Shang and Ewood because that means I can go everyday, LOL!
This is our family dog, Bailey. You might’ve already seen her in my social networking sites where I usually gush about how cute she is and how my family was quick to love her in that short time since she’s been with us. She is my quick fix to any kind of negativity, and seeing her everyday never fails to put a smile on my face!
A few posts back, I was talking about how I think I’m doing a good job given some milestones that I’ve achieved. Bailey’s got it on a whole different level, though.
She gets her first official endorsement / blog advert, and she’s just 3 months old. She’s still trying to properly learn social skills, tricks and polished potty training, and she gets to have a hair endorsement already? Seriously? I’ve been all about my hair ever since I started blogging, and I’ve never had proper shampoo sponsor, lol. This makes me even proud that our new baby is hopefully gonna be a star in her own right!
I wanted to take photos of her when she was still significantly smaller (and chubbier) but I couldn’t do it properly because she wasn’t fully trained yet, and like an infant ninja puppy (ninja gene probably taken from my older brothers), was just too fast for the camera. A month has passed since we got her, and she totally gets some basic commands down pat already.
She has also grown A LOT. It’s crazy. I often joke about how she was born to be a model, as her legs were the first parts that grew longer. It easily stuck and now my family refers to her as the dog who was born to be a model.
And the dog with long legs but with a fat belly that we super love to rub! <3
My mom took her out for a bath last Friday afternoon, and I decided to take pictures while they were at it! I managed to save my camera from being splashed by shampoo water. Phew.
Took this as an ideal opportunity to document Bailey properly since I’ve only used iPhone 4S camera for the past month! :D
We use Our Dog shampoos for Bailey, and they come in these adorable colors and scents. I put the cutest dog in the middle, lol. That white ball of fluff! <3 Which breed is your fave?
All Our Dog products are imported from Australia, and are now the leading and most affordable imported dog shampoo/conditioner in the market. The special Australian Tea Tree Oil component is effective against bacteria, fungi and viruses, so it’s definitely a must for all those like us that keep dogs inside the house.
We still haven’t figured out what to do when Bailey grows up into her adult model self (lol) but for now she has a little home inside the house where she can greet all those who pass through the front door! I wonder if there are any Lab owners out there who can give us any advice on what to do when she can’t fit inside the house anymore!
Our Dog is also amazingly soap-free so the products do not remove the oil/moisture from Bailey’s skin. That natural moisture protects her from irritation and other skin related diseases, so it’s always better to use shampoo made especially for dogs instead of generic human shampoo or soap.
That blue tub of extra moisture conditioner is one of my faves because it makes Bailey’s hair so irresistibly smooth… *steals line from random shampoo commercial*
Bath time! Labradors being labradors, Bailey ALWAYS has fun when it comes to anything related to water. If she only had a choice, she’d stay in that bath tub for good. She hasn’t seen a pool in her life yet, and I’m pretty sure that she’ll dive right in when she sees one.
Sometimes she would deliberately spill some of her drinking water just so she can get it on herself. I guess she agrees with all of us that it is just too hot in Manila! By the time this gets posted, I’m probably enjoying sweater weather in Osaka. Woot!
This time, we used the blue Shower Fresh shampoo variant, though I really prefer the Lavender scent better. Next week again!
Towel snuggle. How can you not love this giant baby?
Biting her hairbrush, probably thinking she doesn’t need it. Because she was born a model. (OK, somebody please stop me!)
Literally. Those puppy dog eyes. Can’t say no to them!
We’re all so happy with our newest addition to the family. It’s good that there’s an extroverted energy in our house now as most of us are introverts and like to stick to indoor activities. Like, playing the latest apps on iPhone (Ahh, Alien Hive is *the* one app that’s ruining my productivity right now)… if that counts.
I’ll keep you guys posted with all sorts of cute Bailey stories in the next few weeks, months and years. <3
Our Dog products are available in Pet Express, Dogs In The City, Animal House, Doggie Land (San Juan, Mandaluyong, Tiendesitas, Cartimar), Pet Zone, ACE Hardware, SM Supermarkets, SM Hypermart, Savemore, Handyman, True Value, Unimart, Mercury Drug, S&R, Super Shopping Supermarket, Cherry Foodarama, Makati Supermarket, Cash & Carry, South Supermarket, Puregold Duty Free (Subic and Clark), Alturas Supermarket (Tagbilaran, Bohol) and Pricewise Supermarket (Zamboanga).

P.S. My mom made Bailey an Instagram account recently, lol. Add her up: @mybebebailey
There was a time when I was so addicted to this app, thanks to Crissey, master of all things cute. It was pure madness. I couldn’t sleep because of it. BUY ALL THE CUTE FURNITURE.
Early on, I knew I wanted to shy away from all the pink stuff, because I wanted a more realistic-looking house (This app is serious business - it’s not even funny). I even created a space that looks just like the studio outside my room, that little space where I take my indoor outfit photos.
A few weeks (or has it already been months?) have passed since I started this and I admit I don’t really have much to do anymore, since I’m already pretty contented with how I designed it. And well, I don’t have a lot of gems to spare at this point, lol. T_T
Anyhow, add me up! You can search for Tricia Gosingtian on LINE Play. Sometimes I give hearts back in gratitude! <3
Halloween’s just around the corner, and for those who aren’t the type to go all out on grand costume parties, here’s a lulzy idea on who you can go as - your best friend! In my case, it’s oh-so-bubbly Crissey who loves everything cute, pink and sparkly!
For the record, she has also tried to dress up as me countless times in the past, but hasn’t really tried imitating my make-up style to complete her transformations! I’ve spent so much time with her all these years and nothing has changed when it comes to her taste in make-up. There always has to be white glitters! I tend to gravitate towards black liquid and pencil eyeliner, but Crissey is all about looking like an innocent little girl by using a lot of pink and white! Her recent entry made me so inspired to create a “Crissey” look of my own:
Step 1: Prime your eyelids! I’m using Urban Decay’s Primer Potion. This prevents your eye make-up from creasing or smearing. It also makes the color of your eyeshadow pop out more!
Random note - I didn’t get my eyebrows bleached because my brows aren’t too dark and thick anyway! I just use the Kiss Me HEAVY ROTATION Coloring Eyebrow Mascara in 01 Light Ash that I got from Sasa last summer (because even back then I was already set on going blonde!) to make my brows this color.
Step 3: Apply white eyeshadow on the inner corners and blend it with the pink. I’m using the silver-white eyeshadow from Catwalk Cosmetics. This is to create the illusion of brighter, more animated eyes.
Step 4: I’m using Dolly Wink’s liquid eyeliner to create a defined wing. Normally, people would wing their eyeliner upwards, but I like winging my liner downwards for a more dolly look!
Step 5: The most important step in creating the fresh “Crissey” look. I’m using Palty Glitter Pencil Eyeliner (in silver) for my waterline to make my eyes look bigger and more awake!
Step 6: Apply mascara on your top and bottom eyelashes. I’m using Majolica Majorca’s Lash Enamel Glamour Neo mascara which is my all-time favorite!
Before and after. I added some natural-looking falsies to finish the whole look since I made this tutorial with wearing Crissey’s signature glasses in mind.
It was so much fun to do this, especially since I only normally use brown, gold and other neutral shades for my eyes. I know Crissey would cry buckets first before trying this tutorial out - I remember she would always end up tearing up whenever someone would try to line her eyes, but I still hope she likes this and hope that this can also inspire you to try pink and white eyeshadow combinations out!
Special thanks to Japanese Candy for my Geo Princess Mimi Apple Green lenses. <3
