Daphne Osena-Paez collaborates with Bench Homescents

“I believe that home fragrances are just as important as personal scents,” she says. “It is the final touch in creating a well-dressed home.”

Daphne Osena-Paez

DSC_0012

I was a bit confused when I was invited to Bench and the venue was Dimensione and they mentioned a collab with Daphne Osena-Paez (which btw I am a big fan from her Urban Zone days!) And true enough it is something to do with HOME.

DSC_0013

Quoting Daphne…

“For as long as I could remember I always had room scents — whether it was candles, sprays, sachets or drawer liners. I want my home always smelling fresh and clean. I would tell these stories frequently on my blog Daphne.ph.”

The resulting trio reflects these sensibilities. “I wanted the fragrance line to reflect different moods. When I was creating this with the Bench team, I was imagining actual rooms. I took inspiration from food, travel and colors.”

DSC_0014

For as long as I can remember, homescents are the least of my concern when designing my home. After the afternoon tea with Daphne, I instantly appreciated the value of home fragrance – how it helps set the mood or change the mood, whichever is needed. AND MY FAMILY APPRECIATES AND LOVES IT TOO!

DSC_0016My friend Angel won the Daphne chair worth P15,000! UBER COOL!

DSC_0017

DSC_0018

DSC_0019

Aside from the home fragrance, Daphne also officially launched her chair collection! Each Daphne chair is carefully handmade by an award-winning, export-accredited furniture company. They are so cute but not to be fooled ’cause it’s masterfully engineered to last.

Folded and Hung black tee, Mental long vest (from Mike Magallanes), Penshoppe leatherette pants, Thrifted military boots

DSC_0028

Daphne x Bench Homescents are available in three fragrances. Mint Jasmine Infusion is a mix of floral and mint, inspired by an outdoor kitchen in Tuscany. Homemade Lemon Tart is reminiscent of freshly-baked pie, a universal scent designed to appeal to all ages and lifestyles. Acres of Lavender, which aids in sleep, is woodsy, soothing and relaxing.

Daphne Home Scents retail at Php348.00 each and is available at Dimensione stores and selected Bench stores nationwide.

Jake Cuenca is the face of Mensweek for its The Fort leg. Previous celebrities who represented Mensweek were Enchong Dee and Joseph Marco.

Jerome Salaya-Ang

DSC_1256

Mixed and varying textures is the strength of Ang’s collection for men, which is very in sync with its female counterpart.

DSC_1257

Matching prints on hoodies and socks *check!*

DSC_1258

DSC_1259

Gold and black plays a big role in the color scheme in this collection. Pretty reminds us of Alexander McQueen in late 2010 and 2011.

This leggings with cutout O____O is just so phenomenal. I need ’em but I still don’t know if I can pull it off. Heh.

Nixon Marquez

DSC_1269

As with Nixon’s Philippine Fashion Week collection, and as with his other collections, the strength of his clothes will be in the unique cuts and silhouettes it creates with the body.

DSC_1270

…and 90’s grunge and rock and roll! \m/

DSC_1271

DSC_1272

I love this hoodie!

Pajamic cotton pants – buy this early for the sweaty summer season. It’s a welcome alternative to denim, at least.

Noel Crisostomo

DSC_1281

Noel Crisostomo being put in the third and last slot was refreshing. His style varied immensely from the first two designers, but that doesn’t mean he’s lesser talented. Clean cuts and boxy geometric silhouettes are his strength in this collection. Also, attention to detail – be sure to catch the snakeskin lining in some of his pieces.

This leather boxy top!

Ah, I love breakfast and booze.

Globe Lumia 800 Launch at Beso

DSC_1187

Was invited at the launch of Nokia Lumia 800 for Globe Telecom at Beso in the newly opened Bonifacio High Street Central. The launch was filled with amazing giveaways — where I didn’t catch the number of phones being given away because of all the sangrias I had, but I do remember it’s more than 30 (oh gawd, Coy if you’re reading this please correct me, haha!)

Lumia 800 is the first Windows phone from Nokia which, despite my doubts, is very fast as Norbert from Windows himself demonstrated to me! It performs what a decent smartphone would deliver, but on an unexpected speed! You can get it from Globe free starting at Plan P1799!

Thanks to Paul for this photo! And for the lights for not showing how truly red I was that night! Will be definitely back at Beso Cucina Vinoteka for the unlimited sangrias and amazing tapas and for Globe this week for the Tatt Awards launch!

STATUS NU RAVE

Faded✰Glory checkered shirt, Oxygen denim jeans, Thrifted military boots

Kinda late post, and yeah, I used photos from my friends hahahaha, but I just wanna blog about this because I wanna remember how fun it is to meet again friends I haven’t seen for a while in one place. Kudos to Status Magazine for their fourth anniversary and this sorta-kinda reunion of people in the industry.

And yeah, the theme of the party is neon. We’re a lot who wore neon, so don’t glare on me. But I think I’ll invest in a neon piece in my closet, hmmmmmm.

Tomato Green at Market! Market!

There are very few things aside from food and Muji that brings me to The Fort. If it isn’t an exhibit, show, or friends, it must be something I can’t find in the North.

DSC_0936

So before the payday weekend hit, I make sure to check out Tomato Green’s summer collection.
