ASPREY, WORLD OF STRAPS

Gone are the days when timepieces were just a necessity. Today, it's a necessity AND an accessory! If you're the  Imelda of watches, I'm sure collecting won't be an issue but how about those who can't afford to buy more than one but still wants to wear something different every now and then? Finding that good ol' reliable watch is not a cheap process either (if you know what I mean) but what if you have that perfect watch already? Aren't you worried of the thought that you might get bored with it sooner than you think? Well worry no more because I have exciting news to those who wants to have a watch that is fit for all occasions! Oh well, I'm sure most of you knows what I'm talking about… It's all about the straps!

WHAT A GIRL WANTS

I got a message on Facebook a couple of weeks back and it said…

"It's funny that a lot of your followers/readers are female. Anyway, I really like your blog. I am a PR student and a blogger too. I have always envisioned myself to look…(cut)"

I'm cutting short his message 'coz I get teary-eyed every time I read it (lol). Kidding aside, it's for my ego as well. I don't want to feed it with sniffy messages such as the above. I appreciate it though.

Now let's start making a connection between the letter and this post ok? Going back to the first part, it says "It's funny that a lot of your followers/readers are female." Surprise, surprise! It's true and I don't know why. Not that I'm complaining ok? I like the attention (from girls) my posts gets and this particular one is no different. It's what you girls want and I'm giving it.

Bench has done it again! And the latest addition to their ever growing roster of international endorsers is none other than Hollywood A-Lister Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers fame.

FRESH TOMATO FOR YOU

I like shoes.

I also happen to like women who likes shoes! Actually, in general, I like women with good taste and that spreads out to their choices of clothing, shoes, bags and accessories (like watches!). I'm also in to smart women. Smart women who doesn't spend that much in order for them to look and feel good. Fashion need not be expensive or so they say and if this is your mantra as a woman of style, then I'm sure you'll like this post. Enjoy!

NICHOLI RED

Red! Who doesn't like the color red? I don't know a single soul who doesn't but if you're the type who goes queasy at the sight of blood (or just even the color of it perhaps?), then this post is not for you.

Never mind the title. I just thought that if ever I make a career in the porn industry, I'm gonna name myself Nicholi Red. Catchy eh? But don't worry, no PG stuff here. I'm just passionate with the color red and you know how "passionate" porn stars are with their craft right? I hope I'm making sense hehe...

MARTA'S CAKES!

This is one of those random days where I decided to agree to something just to kill time (had to go to the Candy Style Awards that night) but managed to still end up being productive with results worthy of a blog post!

Tara! Let's be kids once again!

LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #33 - STARSHIP TROOPER

Had a shoot the other day along with fellow style bloggers for Zalora and boy it was the most awesome experience I've had this summer! Who wouldn't want to share the spotlight with the likes of Patricia Prieto, Lexi Gancayco, Alyssa Lapid, Ana Gonzales, Earth Rullan, Sarah Tirona, Aivan Magno and Gelo "Fabgelous" Arucan? It was a riot I tell you and to think we're not even 1/4 of the participating bloggers for Bloggers United 3! More BTS photos soon! In the meantime…

…allow me to share my "summer peg" for the shoot. I'm a trooper here. Dancing (and lip dubbing) to Nicki Minaj's Starships. Mystery of the post title solved. Enjoy… the video at the last part of this post!

PAUL, THE T-SHIRT GUY

Yes, I'm turning over a new leaf and I'm changing the name of my blog… not! But seriously, this past week I thought that if ever I get one more shirt (there's 4 in this post!) you might be saying bye-bye to The PR Guy and be welcoming Paul, The T-Shirt Guy! Thank God the Uniqlo team (of the Uniqlo launch last week) ran out of press kits to give away. They gave away shirts you know. So for now, let me delight you with these shirts I acquired (bought, gifted and sponsored!)...
Bought: Zara Superman shirt at Php1,790

LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #32 - NEVER HIDE

I'm kinda hesitant in posting this. For sure I'm allowing myself to get ridiculed online if I do so but I can't help it. The publish button is calling out to me. "Click! Click! Click!"

Anyway, what's the worst thing that could happen? This is just an "inspired (or uninspired, whichever suits you) look" meaning, you WON'T see me wearing this on a regular day. Not anytime soon. Allow me just this once ok?

Who already tried OraCare? Raise your hand.
Now who has heard about the OraCare brand but never got the chance to try it yet? (Raises hand). Yes folks. I'm one of those people who, despite of the countless times I've seen and heard the OraCare ads, has not gotten my mouth washed and my lips taste (or not taste because it's like water!) the wonder which is OraCare. Not until today…

Ok, ok It has been more than a week since I received the OraCare package which Yehey! sent me. Meaning, it has also been more than a week since I tried OraCare! With that short period of time, I can say that I'm a convert now! Let me tell you what I think of the brand...

WHAT'S UP SOCKS?

Take a look a the photo below… Done? Now tell me which item(s) of clothing stood out? To some of you it may be the candy hued pants and to some it may be the tassel loafers (which I'm not too crazy about even though I'm a big fan shoes!). Now what do you think of the socks? I must say that I like 'em that's why I'm dedicating this entire post to this little piece of garment that no one really talked about the past years… until now.

I C U, GQ - MAY 2012

It's that time of the month again where I present you the look that I'm gonna "copy" on the latest issue of GQ but (yes, there's a big BUT) it's not from this month's cover guy!

Now before you go "What the? He's Derrick Rose! The next Jordan!", allow me to say that it's not just me. First off, I don't play much B-ball and I'm not that tall to be able to pull off looks as fly as those of Rose in this month's GQ. You wanna know whose look I'm copying? Read on...

BENCH MASTERCARD LAUNCH

When I got an invitation for the Bench MasterCard Launch all I saw was the words BENCH and BDO and everything else was blurry. My mind was in a complete state of wonderment thinking "what's the two largest local brands today have to do with each other?" I know this is still a continuous effort of retail giant Bench in celebration of their 25th anniversary but with BDO? The leading bank in the country? With Bench? Interesting...

NOW SMELL THIS...

All along, I thought I knew the "basics" when it comes to scents. I get perfumes every now and then which companies (like Prestige Brands! hehe) sends me to review and I must say that with the amount I have, you can call me a collector. That's why when Prestige Brands invited me for an exclusive perfume seminar with International Fragrance Expert - Arnaud Marolleau, no is simply not an option.

BTS: GET SOLE SHOOT

Happy monday everyone! I'm starting this week with a "behind the scenes" post from the Get Sole shoot that I and my fellow male bloggers (Catch, Kelly and Miko) aka "The Gossip Boys" (lol and I'm not gonna tell you why!) did a couple of weeks back.

PS: I almost died that day. Here's why:
1. Get Sole shoot from 9:00am - 1:00pm at Shaw, Mandaluyong (it was hot!)
2. Client pitch at 2:00pm, Pioneer (still hot!)
3. Perfume workshop at 3:00pm, Makati (still, medyo hot pa din!)
4. Event / launch at 6:00pm, The Peninsula (air-conditioned place, sakit ang abot!)

Glad I'm still alive. Enjoy!

THIS SUMMER, EXPLORE!

There's a lot of things to do this summer and those that I have in mind doesn't involve a pail and a shovel. Summer is not just about the beach you know. After all, everyone else is going so why not do something else less heat-stroke risky?

MY MOM IS COOL

And I'm sure yours is too! All moms are cool. But what made my mom extra cooler (for me that is) is the photo below. Nope, she didn't do the laces. I did. Hehe...
