Top 10 Longchamp Loves: Time to Spring Ahead

It’s spring/summer 2015 already! And I’m soo excited. This is my favorite time of the year because all of the collections of most brands are really colorful which is soo my style. So starting of with Longchamp. My favorite bag of all time! Why? Beccause it’s lightweight and roomy and I just can stuff everything inside. Yes, I’m an addict, a hoarder. But hey, all of my bags are used up. :P

#1 – Longchamp Cross Body Bag Deep Night


(Approximately around PHP 25,000)

I have developed an affinity for cross body bags recently. I just noticed that it’s easier to lug them around. The only downside is that you can’t stuff a lot of things inside as opposed to the Le Pliage.

#2 – Longchmp Handbag Le Pliage Cuir


(approximately around PHP 19,000)

This is the leather version of the Le Pliage. Before, I didn’t like leather but right now, I think I should have a black leather bag. And if given a choice (and a chance), I would definitely get this.

#3 – Longchamp Handbag Le Pliage Heritage


(approximately around PHp 38,000)

Yes, this is more expensive than the Le Pliage Cuir for a good reason though. Look at it, it looks soo structured and formal. And very classic and chic. This is definitely for the career woman. Yes, I’d love to have this too. :P

#4 – Longchamp Handbag Le Pliage Neo


(approximately around PHP 6,000)

I have a confession to make. I already have this in blue. But this color is soooo nice and classy and it fits day dresses. I really, really fell in love with this style.

#5 – Longchamp Handbag Le Pliage Neo Fantasie


(approximately around PHP 7,000)

Of course, you have to have the special kind! ME wants this!

#6 – Longchamp Handbag Le Pliage Sarah Morris Limited Edition


(approximately around PHP 109,000)

WHOA! Too much for a bag. Will definitely NOT buy this. But it looks really good, right?

#7 – Longchamp Handbag Mariniere


(approximately around PHP 7,000)

This looks soo good for the beach. And I have the perfect beach dress that goes well with it. :P

#8 – Longchamp Handbag Surf the City


(approximately around PHP 7,000)

I love blue. I actually noticed that most of my bags are blue because I consider it a neutral color. :P

#9 – Longchamp Medium Tote Bag Nautique


(approximately around PHP 12,000)

Just to break the Le Pliage craze. :P

#10 – Longchamp Tote Bag Le Pliage Cage Aux Oiseaux


(approximately around PHP 5,000)

Because this makes me happy. Ang Longchamp makes me happy. :P

What about you? What are your picks for this season? :)

Top 5 Picks: Alex and Ani Bangles

Yup and Browsing the internet is the best thing that I do. :)

And here are my top 5 pics of Alex and Ani Bangles. ;)

1 - Blush Bohemian Jewel Wrap

1.) Blush Bohemian Jewel Wrap. Yes, I’m in love with pink. Do you have a problem with that? :P

2- Precious Initial K Charm Bangle

2.) Precious Initial K Charm Bangle. Because I love the letter “K” and my name starts with it. I’m actually pretty biased to people whose names start with the letter K. :)

3 - Blush Mirage Wrap

3.) Blush Mirage Wrap. This somewhat like number 1 but then it’s a different color. It’s nice to have different shades on your wrist, huh?

4 - October Birthstone Charm Bangle

4.) October Birthstone Charm Bangle. Although I was not born in October, I think the birthstone of October is really pretty. Nice one, October-born folks. But maybe you can adopt me so that this can officially be my birthstone? :)

5 - Cotton Candy Sugar Rush Beaded Bangle

5.) Cotton Candy Sugar Rush Beaded Bangle. No reason. I just love pink! :)

Fashion statements that can help people perform well at poker tables

Here’s something interesting that you might like to read when you’re in the game. And it is true that Fashion does aid the things that we actually do in our life. Power dressing for the office and at this case in poker games. :P

Poker is a game of wits and wearing the right clothes can be very helpful in either sending a message to other players or protecting yourself from giving away tells while in the middle of a game. In tournaments, pros do everything they can to get the advantage over their opponents and the apparel they wear contributes greatly to this.

Slot machines and some table games from brick-and-mortar casinos may have been hit hard when the world’s first online pay-to-play gaming site InterCasino went live in 1996. However, this is not the case with poker, as live tournaments of the world’s most popular card game are very much alive even after the dawn of online casino. So if you’re planning on joining Resorts World Manila or Solaire’s next major poker tournament, here are some attire ideas for you.

Poker Hoodies

Poker Hoodie

A lot of poker players can be seen wearing hoodies during tournaments. While the most obvious reason for wearing them is to keep their body warm, players also sport them for the sake of concealing their facial expressions. Hoodies cover the sides of the face, hiding any unnecessary expressions that opponents may see. Facial expressions can be interpreted by other players as tells, so wearing hoodies in tournaments can be convenient for players.

Suits and Dresses

Suits and Dresses

Dressing up in formal attire is always a good idea for big poker tournaments. They make people look elegant, professional, and serious about the game they’re playing. Dressing up in suits or dresses can project the message that you mean business and simple plays won’t intimidate you. In addition, wearing formal clothes can mean that you command respect. This will make some players a bit wary in making pointless provocations against you.



Headphones are quickly becoming a welcome addition to poker fashion. They minimize the outside noise and provide players with relaxing music during the games. However, apart from the obvious reasons for wearing them, what most people don’t know is that pros sport headphones for another cause.

Headphones can actually fool people into thinking that those who wear them aren’t serious and are detached from the game. Thus, it is common for some players to drop their guard around players who wear headphones. When people drop their guard, it’s possible for them to speak about unnecessary things that can give away signs whether they’re bluffing or not. Wearing headphones can be a clever strategy.

Bespoke Your Ni QUA: Get a Chance To Win Your Own! ;)

Have you ever wondered what Bespoked meant? Well, I have. Probably because I’m not really all that fancy with words so I looked it up. And apparently, it just meant “made to order”. AHA! okaaay. :)

It’s very rare that you get the chance to have a made-to-order bag, right? And Ni Qua is giving you a chance to have your very own bag in the design that you would like. Check it out here.

My ultimate favorite is the one by Patty Laurel-Filart.

Noel Bazaar 2014 Series and Other Updates… :)


I’ve been soo busy for the past few weeks. But here are some quick updates about the happenings in my life… :)

Update #1: I already got my personalized BDJ Planner! :) Yay. I’m back to using BDJ already and I plan to really make my planner this coming 2015 really, really nice. As in decorated and all. I hope I have time. But I’m more positive about 2015 that I will have more time to focus on my life. New role starting next week. New life. Back to being normal again. A new start. Excited. :)

BDJ Power Planner

Update #2: I took a Personality Test that my friend sent me. It seems like I am a mixed of Perfect Melancholy and Peaceful Phlegmatic. According that I am the following:

  • Perfectionist
  • Introverted
  • Sensitive
  • Submissive
  • Indecisive
  • Calm

However, when I look through all of these descriptions, I don’t necessarily believe that these are accurate. First of all, I don’t think I am a perfectionist because I really do things haphazardly and I do things really fast and I don’t even look back and re-do it. For as long as I finish something that’s it.

Also, I’m not CALM. I am usually stressed (I TRY to be calm but I am not inherently calm :P).

But I do believe that I am Introverted, Sensitive, Submissive and Indecisive. :P

And this is the reason why I think I do think all the time. I analyzing things too much. Probably the reason why I am ina  job which requires me to think a lot. On the other end of the spectrum though, I also believe that I am a follower. Yes, I can do lead but I am more of a worker. And I like doing actual work. I usually don’t stand out on the onset but I think that my perseverance with work is the reason why I do actually succeed in my work. :P (see, sipag and tiyaga…:P)

Update #3: Although I have already taken the Strengths Finder test over at the office. I needed to find out what my weaknesses were. So, I took this personality test over at Richard Step. And my weakness pertained to: Self-Motivation. :(

It gave me the following insight on myself… I need space to make meaningful decisions. I like roles where persistence is essential to success. I need a sense of certainty and stability. I feel most effective when I feel that I am in control.

That explains a LOT. And probably the one big thing in my life right now that I need is time to figure out what I really want to do in my life. And yes, this is probably the reason why I am soo looking forward to my silent retreat this coming November.

This is also probably the reason why I also do well in work. I am such a persistent person. Not brilliant but just diligent with work. :P

Updated #4: One of my really good friends is popping out a baby soon this November and we had a Baby Shower last weekend. And who did they request me to bring? Why of course, my uber cute niece.

ZeekaIsn’t she such a cutie??

Update #5: My box from came already! And I got new shoes! YAAAY!

My Love Affair with Forever New (Ever New Philippines)

I have always been a fan of EVER NEW since it opened here in the Philippines. Although the prices of the dresses are really pricey. So I just look and wait for the sale. :) Yes, I’m kinda practical with that. But I really, really LOVE their dresses. I love their prints. Soo unique and colorful.

Everytime I wear a dress that I got from them, I always get compliments. And this is why I have a continuous love affair with them. <3

A friend of mine just sent me a save-the-date for their wedding on January 2. I wonder if I should buy this dress. :P Anyway, that’s also my Mama’s death anniversary. I wonder, if she’s alive, what would she be like to me? :) I hope that she’d be proud of me. But as for my shopping spree, I think she would definitely disagree with my spending habits. Sorry, Mama!! :(
