Well for me, it was pretty much great. First of all, it was the first time that I got to go to SM Aura. One of the things that I was kind of looking forward to was Paul. Paul is actually a French Family Bakery which was located near our hotel in France (Adagio Strasbourg). So we were pretty much familiar with it. One of the things that I remember there was their macarons and and pain au chocolat. Unfortunately, when I got to SM Aura, they ran out of the pain au chocolat and they told me that they didn’t have the macarons yet.
I wonder when they will bring the macarons in. I’m soo excited about that.
But one of the things that I was pretty happy about was that I got to buy my favorite bra tops from Uniqlo. I really, really love these Airism Bra Tops. They’re soo comfortable and they already have built in bra pads that makes it more comfy.
I actually have this AIRism Drape Bra Sleeveless Top in 2 colors: Black and Orange.
On the other hand, I have this AIRism Bra Sleeveless Top in Black.
And I have this AIRism Bra Camisole in a Neutral shade.
And because i was craving for macarons, I had to settle for these ones from Chateau de France.
They said that the bestseller were the Pistachio, Raspberry and Chocolate. I opted though for the Lime and the Lemon. The Lime was too sour and the Lemon was just fine. So if you ask me, I would recommend the Lime.
So that was it for my first SM Aura experience. What about you? How was your SM Aura experience?
First time, I saw this product was on Ava.ph. I immediately told my sister to get one for her baby. It’s something that I think would be soo useful to everyone especially nowadays that the rainy days are coming already. BOO. I somehow wish that somewhere will stay here forever. BUT, unfortunately, it can’t. And besides, on the other side of the spectrum, it has been unbearably hot lately. BUT, I still prefer HOT than cold.
Anyway… more about this product:
Para’Kito basically has 2 products: wristbands and clips. The wristbands are the ones that really caught my ey. These items have “pellets’ that diffuse a blend of 7 essential oils extracted from plans that naturally protect from mosquitoes for 15 consecutive day.
I think this one is a picture from Mothercare store at the BGC.
These are some of the things that you can get at Ava.ph
On a baby!
And these are the things that I am looking for. These are the limited edition designs. I want the life is <3 design.
Yes, I know that in the start of the year, I vowed to myself that I will not shop that much. But much to my dismay, I always find a “reason” to shop. But that’s okay. But I know that I am really happy with the things that I have purchased.
Goody has a product line called Goody Simple Styles. This product line aims to make it easier for the normal folks to style their hair. This is actually pretty cool because I really am the WORST at fixing my hair. I got this product because I have a wedding to attend on the 22nd of June and it’s soo early- 8 AM! Obviously, there would not be any open parlors at 6 AM. So there, I hope this helps me fix my hair and look presentable.
This is my first pair of Sperry and I am hoping that it will not be my last because there are still some styles they that I truly love. And this is canvass. I really want one that’s leather. Thank you to my office for having a sale at the office. Only downside, the things that they have on sale were the stuff from their Q1 stock. But that’s okay. I got this cheaper. And it’s useful. And I feel cool for having a pair. Now I’m wishing that they would have another sale and that it would already have the style that I want.
I am going on a trip in a few days and as I was packing my bag yesterday (yes, i did pack as early as yesterday because I’ve been soo busy). I realized that I “needed” lip gloss/lip balm. I had C.O. Bigelow before and it really saved me and been my companion all throughout my France Trip (3 months). I was soo sad when i finished the tube and i was actually contemplating on ordering from the States. So, imagine my happiness when I found out that Taste Central offered it over website. So, thank you Taste Central for bringing this to Manila. I will forever LOVE you.
In addition to that, another favorite brand of mine – Shu Uemura, was (and I think still is) offerring 2 lip glosses for a very cheap price of PHP 490. Yes, they’re really small but that makes it even cuter because you can bring it everywhere and especially on my trip YAY! Soo excited. I just know that it’s going to be EPIC!
PLUS: They gave me again 10% discount voucher. So I’m still thinking of what I should buy. Hihi. (Addict.) I really love you Taste Central. And you’re soo fast. I ordered yesterday and it was delivered today. WOW.
This is my favorite compact cream foundation. It’s mineral and it does cover really well. I love this because it’s almost full coverage (you know, I don’t have flawless skin anymore ) and it’s compact. I think this is my 3rd one already. So, the Love Your Body Card for me from The Body Shop is really SUPER SULIT! Love you too, The Body Shop.
This one I wanted to share with you…
The Body Shop just came out with a new product line called Cruelty Free Make Up Line by Leona Lewis.
Anyway, I’m going to leave you with that and here’s to wishing you a GREAT weekend ahead.
If you know me, you wouldn’t think I’m the kind of person who likes party sounds and club music. BUT, if you know REALLY WELL, you would know that this is the kind of music that I enjoy. Funny because I’m really not a party girl and I don’t even party. BUT, I just like the music. It keeps me up, awake and makes me feel like I’m on top of everything. And some of these club music podcast keep me going during my morning walks and workouts.
So, that’s the background of me and my love for club music. So imagine my excitement when I receive an email from the Social Media and Community Officer of DJ CENTER RECORDS which is one of the French leading Dance Music record company based in Paris. I need not say more because I also have a love and affinity for France having lived there for around 3 months. And although some of my friends didn’t rate Paris as one of their favorite cities, it was on my list and I wouldn’t mind going back!
Who is Quentin Mosimann?
Go ahead and search it on the internet. It would give this result…
“Quentin Mosimann is a Swiss singer, winner of the seventh season of the French TV reality show Star Academy. His first solo album, Duel, is composed of cover versions of 1980s hits. His second album, Exhibition was released in May 2010.
On top of that, this French-Swiss DJ singer, model, and performer is also one of the coaches in the TV show “The Voice Belgium.” He was also elected as one of the Top 100 DJ’s in the world wide poll of 2012 and 5th Best French DJ and Best DJ Dance of 2011.
And this year, he’s going on an ASIA tour. One of his stops is MANILA! YAY!
The Manila Tour
Mark your calendars: August 2, 2013 Friday at Palladium, Quentin will be partying with us.
Transcript below is the exclusive interview that he had regarding this Asia tour.
Interviewer: “How would you define your style of music?”
Quentin: ”Concerning my productions, I’m working on Electro-House and Progressive-House music because I like to alternate beautiful melodies with big drops, sometimes quite minimalist with strong percussions. Concerning my DJ sets, I can adapt the programmation with the audience, I can play more Tech-House in some countries like USA or Egypt. Some others are more Electro or mainstream. Anyway, the aim is that everybody has to be happy and in connivance with me.”
Interviewer: “How would you differentiate yourself from artists nowadays?”
Quentin: “Proposing something different is my main goal. I always admired Joachim Garraud because he was the first DJ doing a real performance live and that’s what I really want to do: entertaining the audience with a real show. That’s why I try to create an interactivity with singing, drums, keyboard. I try to push live at a next level.”
Interviewer: “What motivated you to become a dj / producer / singer?”
Quentin: “As I said, Joachim Garraud inspired me for being a DJ, and a DJ-singer especially because I wanted to propose something new and different, deejaying and singing were my 2 passions since I’m a kid. The same for being a producer, I learnt drums at 4 years old, then the piano and singing, deejaying at 14. Producing music was always a huge part of my daily life.”
Interviewer: “What are your personal achievements as a DJ?”
Quentin: “The first time I played in Ibiza at 18 years old was a dream came true. Since then, there was playing at Mansion and Set Club in Miami, being ranked in the Top 100 DJ Mag, playing at Ultra Music Festival for WMC, playing at Inox Festival in France, being playlisted by awesome artists like Chuckie, Erick Morillo… But I have many many more dreams to achieve so let’s work !”
Interviewer: “What are your current interests and inspiration?”
Quentin: “I feed myself with the countries I visit, the people I meet. Inspiration can come at any time but fortunately I always have my laptop with me to work on it. I can be inspired while I’m cooking (another passion), watching TV, waiting for my plane… Well, I think my daily artist life is full of interests and inspiration, I’m lucky.”
Interviewer: “Is it your first time touring in Asia & are you excited?”
Quentin: ”Yes it is! I’m so excited to come and discover a new public, another culture. I really hope to make a huge party with Asian people.”
Interviewer: “What should audiences expect from your live tour?”
Quentin: “To have a party they will remember… I’m stressed out but really ready to perform as I never did for Asia. Be ready to dance, jump, scream, sing, travel, pogo, maybe support me for crowdsurfing… Well, ENJOY !
Interviewer: “Where do you see yourself in the future?”
Quentin: “I always answer that doing this job for the next 20 years represents my biggest dream for the future. I hope I will be on tour in countries I’ve never been yet, doing great collaborations, producing music, improving my shows. Let’s be back in Asia soon to check all this! ”

Whoever said that cute and beautiful underwear will make or break an outfit must’ve been a really wise person. I never really thought about it that much before until recently when I got really attracted to all of the nice and lovely colors of the stuff from La Senza. But since I’m pretty much an “underwear newbie”, I just thought I would make a little research on the subject.
So for those of you who are underwear newbies like me, this one’s for you.
A G-string is a type of thong underwear that passes between the buttocks and is attached to a band around the hips.
A garment that is usually worn as an underwear.
As I have read in Wikipedia, the difference between the Thong and the G-String is the following:
Thong: has one-inch strip of fabric down the back
G-String: more like a string of fabric akin between the teeth (relating to the name equivalent in Spanish which suggests hilo dental)
Brazilians and Cheekies
Brazilian panties or “calcinhas” are characterized by their perfect coverage – somewhere between a thong and a bikini.
Hipsters are similar to briefs, but are worn lower down the body, with the waistband around the hips.
Bikini sit at hip level, like hipsters, but the fabric at the side sections is narrower.
Boy shorts are also known as boy short panties, boys’ cut, booty shorts, shorties, tap panties, and boyleg briefs. These undies goes all the way down the hips. These are actually considered as a variation of the traditional boxer shorts.
Hope this guide helps you choose the best underwear that fits you!
Nowadays, it seems that everyone has a tablet. When you look around the malls, you would be amazed at how many babies also have their “own” tablets. But really, do you think it’s wise enough to buy your baby a really high end tablet? I think not. Let’s be practical. Why would you buy something soo expensive and take the risk of the gadget being thrown or dropped accidentally? Better think and re-think. But of course, if you have the budget to buy something so expensive, then go ahead. Be my guest.
I was browsing through Lazada, it seems that they actually do have a lot of tablets in store. And one that of which is caught my attention is Haipad. Probably because it came in a lot of colors?
Here are some of the specifications that it has:
OS: Android 4.1.1
Screen: 7″ multitouch, capacitive touchscreen
Resolution: 800×480 pixels
Processor: Rockchip Cortex A9
Memory: 512MB DDR3
Storage: 4GB, expandable via 32GB microSD
Camera: Dual camera
Connectivity: WiFi, USB 2.0, 3G dongle compatible
Battery: Li-Po 2500 mAh
Dimensions (mm): 194x119x7
Weight (g): 380
I am obviously not a very techie person but I think I know pretty much to determine the following. The size is pretty good. It’s not that big and not that small so you can lug it around and keep in your bag. The storage is 4GB which you can expand up until 32GB with a microSD (so yay for you picture lovers). It also comes with a Dual Camera so you can do #selfies all you want. And it’s WiFi ready.
In addition to that, the most important thing is that it only costs PHP 2900 for PHP 4999.
Well, what do you think? For me, it’s pretty reasonable, what about for you?
