After their over the top: furry monster and Karlito bag charms, Fendi launched last November 2015 their handbag straps.  The Strap you Collection is a variety of bag straps that you can attach to your bag - giving your bag a new look each time you use a different strap: making it more fun and exciting to carry.

The bag straps come in bright colors:  two-tone reversible, others are adorned by colorful studs and flowers.

My take on Kylie Lip kit♥

After months of waiting I finally got my hands on you!

I am not really into lippies because there are brands that dries (especially the matte finish lipsticks)  my lips and the ending - chapped lips.  But my IG friend was going ga-ga about this and persuaded me to try it.  After several tries (always sold out), I was able to get one.  

Here's my take on the most coveted lippy at the moment.  

Color : Candy K it's the most salable (my top pick).  It's soft and warm nude color - i like it, but I was wanting - something with orange undertone.  So I might try the Exposed shade next time.  

Lip liner : Love the lip liner!♥ The liner is soft and glides easily.  It's pigmented and long lasting.  It can be sharpened even if you feel that it's made of plastic.  I hope they'll sell separate liners soon.

Lipstick : The lipstick is a bit sticky at first but dries quickly.  Tip: Before applying a thin layer of the lipstick it's best to put on a lip balm so as not make your lips too dry.  Though it was not "very dry" than the other matte lipsticks that I have tried, I am really used in applying lip balm first before the lipstick for added moisture.  One thing that I don't like about it - it's heavily "vanilla scented."

Still love my Clinique long lasting lipstick in creamy nude but Kylie lip kit can be a good substitute for it. :)

Tory Burch Pebbled Robinson Square Tote♥

One of the popular lines of Tory Burch was Robinson (named for Tory's parents Buddy & Reva Robinson). In 2014 they have introduced a pebbled leather version of the tote.  

The structure is similar to the double zip tote, aside from the side zip compartments it also features a magnetic snap closure open middle compartment.  

It's a two-way bag: can be hand held and it comes with an extra adjustable shoulder strap, so you can carry it on your shoulders or cross body.

The bag was very spacious.  The interior of the bag: lined with Tory Burch signature lining.  Middle open compartment have  2 open  and 1 zip pockets, just below the zip pocket you can find a metal plate with Tory Burch engraving. The 2 side zip compartments are best in putting your other belongings more secured.

It is made from super soft, textured leather. Dimension: 13.55" x 10.16" x 6.37".  With it's 13.55 inches length it can fit a 13" laptop or an iPad or a mini iPad.  Stamping / engraving on the gold hardware : Buckles - Tory Burch, Zipper pull and metal feet - Tory Burch logo.

The bag also comes with a bag charm and a dust bag.


Size: ♥♥♥♥♥
Weight: ♥♥♥♥
Texture: ♥♥♥♥♥
Price: ♥♥♥♥

I love the bag! The size is perfect.  It's a little heavy but very manageable.  The texture is superb, I like pebbled or textured leather bags because its scratch-free.  It retails at $550.00 but my friend got it for me during the sale period - so its quite a good buy.

Shang Style Spectrum Summer Silhouettes fashion show♥

Shang Style spectrum presents Summer Silhouettes last May 14, 2016 at the East Atrium.  The annual fashion show features the latest collection from our favorite shops in Shangrila mall.  My nephew was lucky enough to be chosen by Gingersnaps (again) to be one of their models.  Lance was one of the winners of the Gingersnaps Model Search for their 20th Anniversary (2014), so this was not really new to him.

It was like a little reunion of these kiddos... after 2 years. 

Still an awesome experience for Lance and his model friends...

Again thank you Gingersnaps for the opportunity!

You will be missed Ninang Cora♥

I know it's been a while... My blogging needs to take a back seat for a while, a loved one (my mom's sister) passed away.  After 10 months of fighting and struggling with CA, she is now in peace in heaven.  It's not an easy journey for her, but in spite of the pain, whenever I visit and ask her how she's doing : she gives me a nice smile and goes - "I'm okay now."  I will miss her sweet smile, her cooking (she cooks the best Kare kare and Goto), her beautiful voice (especially when she sings the Salve Regina after we pray the rosary)  but I know she is in a better place now without pain.  

Ma. Corazon Reyes-Pascual
August 29, 1941 -  May 18, 2016

A little trivia about my Ninang Cora: (She is everybody's Ninang though she's not really their god mother, like me she is the god mother of my sister but I call her Ninang also.)  She's a grade school teacher (teaches music and science) and assistant principal at Santolan Elementary school.  After her retirement she became the president of the Catholic Women's League and Senior Citizen's Association in our baranggay.  She was a born leader and gives her all in the performance of her duties, that is why she was well-loved not only by her students, colleagues but also those whose lives she touched.

I was deeply moved during her burial mass.  The church was jam-packed, some of them we didn't even know.  

On behalf of our family (Pascual, Reyes and Dumandan)  I would like to thank everybody who showed their love, offered prayers to my Ninang... 

God bless you all.♥
