@niquashop + Small Bags is Love

I was browsing through the stuff of Ni QUA Philippines and this Mini Satchel in SAC in Neon Blue really caught my attention.

Niqua 1

It doesn’t matter that it’s for kids. And when was there ever a rule that kids’ section are just for kids? I beg to disagree. Especially for this case.

Niqua 2

In fact, I know for a fact that this small purse can carry all of my essentials – 2 mobile phones, travel wallet, and a small purse for coins.

In fact, I can think of a number of uses for this – not only for night outs. I can also use this as an extra purse when I go to the office. I love really big bags but the thing is, if I’m just going out for coffee or lunch, lugging around my huge bag is not really appealing to me. So keeping this in my office locker would be really cool. Voila, I have a small bag! J

Have a great Monday everyone! I know it’s super traffic today but I hope that you guys are all safe sound wherever you are! :D

 

@LouiseAstra: Ballet Flats is Love. #shoesph

If you don’t know what ballet flats are then I’m not sure where you came from. :P I started really loving flats when I started to work in Makati wherein I have to walk from here, there to anywhere under the scorching rays of the sun with a laptop inside my backpack. Yeah. Perks of being in IT. In the other end of the spectrum, downside of being in IT. :P

I cannot, CANNOT imagine myself not being in flats or not loving flats one single bit. Yes, I may not look as “hot” as the other girls who wear sky high heels but there’s something about flats that I really love and adore.

Reason #1: Basic.

And basic is a foundation. A starting point. So really, it’s something that EVERYONE needs and will come back to. As simple as it is, everyone will come back to it. And basic never goes old. It’s a classic that will always and forever be in fashion.

Reason #2: Pair it with whatever and you’ll still look like a girl.

Yes, it’s true! It’s probably because of how it’s built – to look fine and petite. So even if you pair it up with loose jeans and loose top, you still look fab! Case in point, check out this post from dresscorilynn.com.

Reason #3: I can wear them ANYWHERE!

Go to work. Do errands. Go shopping. Go out. People won’t judge you because these are pretty much “respectable” shoes if you know what I mean. :P Have a rule, no open toes? It passes that. Want to look formal? Still can pass. Just depends on what you’re wearing. Casual day? Definitely. See? Soo versatile. So what’s there no to love, right?

Louise Astra

And lucky me, I got some new flats from Louise Astra. One was on the brown side and the other one is green. I am pretty much more attracted to the green one because of it’s color and fabric. It’s soo unique that I know that if I wear them, I am pretty sure that someone will take notice of it.

Louise Astra Manila Shopaholic Green

Need I say more?

Louise Astra is a Filipino brand founded by a self-confessed shopaholic mother just last year – July 2013. Each pair of shoe is exclusively designed using nice colors and materials. Want more? It doesn’t cost a fortune!

Summer Seascapes and Floral Prints with Freeway Swimwear 2014

It’s the time of the year again, can you feel it? Well, I guess not strikingly hot yet since when I woke up this morning it was drizzling. But there are times when I would walk outside of my office building to do some errands or buy food, it’s scorching hot already and that reminds me that it’s March and summer is just around the corner. Yes, another season is coming into our lives. I’m excited about that.

What’s more exciting is what will be in the stores already. I really LOVE Spring and Summer collections. I love the colors, the vibrancy,  EVERYTHING about it. If you were to ask me what season I am, I would probably answer you that I would be summer.

And one of our favorites brands for this season is Freeway.

The original designs come in 3 tropical prints: seascape, green flora and multi-colored stripes perfectly creating a refreshing aura. Think: nature and seascapes strategically placed on one-piece maillots, bikinis, bandeau and tankinis. What’s awesome is that you can reinvent the pieces and mix them up to show your own summer vibe.

Another bestseller of Freeway’s swimwear collection is their underwired bikini. Now, I don’t have to spell it out for you. We girls know why that’s just so fabulous.

But summer is just not all about the sun, sea and sand. It’s also about lounging and hanging out around the beach at night. And this is the reason why cover-ups are also an essential part of our summer wardrobe. And just to make sure that you differentiate day from night, toss your flipflops at night and pair them up with sandals from Janylin.

Reef! Not just for Summer

I know that summer season is coming and everyone is gearing up for it but as for me, although I do have summer vacation plans, I still have to weather around 3 months of work before really thinking about going on a vacation. So flipflop shopping and sandals shopping is really not in my vocabulary right now.

But since you know me, I have this summery kind of attitude and personality which always draws me to the brands that are synonymous with summer. Those that come with summer colors hence giving you the summer spirit and it lead me to Reef.

I have known Reef since before as I used to frequent Podium and it has been sold in a lot of stores here in Manila, namely GForce and I’ve been quite a fan eversince. But did you know that they also have some really cool flats? Like this for instance.

Reef Tropicana Flats

This Reef Tropicabana Flats is soo useful that you can even use it in the office. It’s not that loud and you can pair it up with a lot of plain tops. Since it’s bordering on the black, it’s tone down as well.

For those people who like beige more than black, then this Reef Averlyn is the one for you.

Reef Averlyn

I can see it now, you can pair it up with white, black, gray and beige. Pretty cool and conventional.

On the other hand, if you’re the type of girl who loves sneakers during the weekend, then this is the shoe for you – Ocean Mist 2.

Ocean Mist 2

You can use this with jeans, short, skirt, and even a DRESS! The colors are soo lovely that they can fit the personality of a girl next door type of babe. Sweet but funky. Just perfect!

And if you’re a little bit more sophisticated who loves the intricacies of things, then you’ll love this – Reef Rancho Rio.

Reef Ranch Rio

Color is perfect for the elegant classy chic especially if she doesn’t want to appear too formal.

And of course their bags. I’m totally into long handles right now, so I really love the Reef Weekend Bag.

Reef Weekender Bag

Perfect for me because I love stuffing things inside my bag. Haha.

Anyway, hope you loved these products and as I just love them. Check out Reef’s Website. I’m pretty sure you’ll find something you’ll love too.
