It’s not racist, it’s Black Friday x Margiela rocks H&M!

But before I even spazz about the biggest shopping holiday in the US, let me introduce you to what you may have known for the past few weeks already. It’s the biggest collaboration everyone has been talking about from the moment it was announced. I don’t even know if I should name it, but what the hell. I’m too happy and perky, haha!

MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA x H&M. These are some of the standouts:

This ensemble is just perfect! Wish we could pull off that kind of outfit here in the PH! Plus look at the heels, its wedges are invisible :)

Nov 23, 2012, 2:34 AM

The lapels of this trench is inverted and the shirt, pants and even the shoes are hand-painted. What else isn’t special about this collection?!

Nov 23, 2012, 2:35 AM

This is just BLACK-ly beautiful.

Nov 23, 2012, 2:38 AM

So let’s spazz about their sneakers! TOTALLY IN MY WISHLIST!

Nov 23, 2012, 2:38 AM

And what is the relevance of all this when we live in the faraway land of MANILA? Not anymore! Introducing the GCASH American Express Virtual Card! It’s the answer to your shopping needs this Black Friday and even the Holiday season. Watch this quick video to know more about this:

Isn’t it great? You get to ship your goods to a virtual US ADDRESS (so you can take advantage of free shipping perks on some stores) and ship it to Manila at a lessened cost. What’s even better to know is that you don’t need a credit card to shop online. Loving the way you pay, eh?

So Black Friday just started a few hours ago and you still have roughly 20 hours to go before it ends! Watch the video above to guide you and go register now for your GCASH AmEx virtual card and enjoy your Black Friday shopping! Let me know what you bought, hihi :)

Run away with you

Remember when I blogged about The Killers’ new single? They have a music video now! I can still feel the tears welling up in my eyes. Oh dear. Can’t wait for September for the official release!!!


Mister x Manila Launch at Greyone Social



Carved from the mind, made straight into material, Mister brand puts a modernistic spin on classic men’s attire. The inherently stylish, San Francisco born designers engineer their garments to contain quality and comfort, with superior attention to detail and everlasting style.



Largely manufacturing their clothing in San Francisco gives Mister brand the opportunity to not only enrich it’s community, but the capability to chaperon every garments construction from start to finish. Mister, made for all men, and for every wardrobe.



Here in the Philippines, Mister is exclusively distributed by Greyone Social at Greenbelt 5. Along with brands like Vans, Hellz Bellz, Dissizit, and couple more of hip-hop-skater feel brands, the addition of Mister in the racks of Greyone Social adds an opposite but welcome complement. I particularly liked the minimalist and basic tees with a subtle diversion to prints. Also the reversible collar in the shirt is an interesting piece.


A couple of accessories like this wooden bow is also part of the Mister collection at Greyone Social. I like how this is in collaboration with our local designers and manufacturers. Dee Jae Paeste, who designed the absolutely amazing pieces for Mister, is a proud supporter of Postura PH, also. Spot him wearing some indigenous tribal accessories below:




I was in Greyone Social as well, so I took the chance to spot some items I think y’all would be interested to:


These shoes are made from paper. But they don’t tear, and are water-proof! Civic Duty sneakers are definitely in my wish list!




Vans shoes can be also bought in the store! My eyes are on the new high cuts!




And several other graphic tees are available… You check Greyone Social’s Tumblr for more of these prints!






One last hurrah for this post: shout out to Greyone Social’s fabulous owner, Ms. Rosario Herrera for personally showing me around, and introducing me to people. She has been a very accommodating host, and it has been a worthwhile trip to Greenbelt, which is a bit far from where I work and live. Well, that’s even aside from Mister’s beautiful collection!


I thought I’d give ode to the Greyone vibe but I really don’t wanna go all hip-hop ’cause it’s not who I am. This Oxygen top (which fabric btw is perfect for the summer) helped me stick to my own style while deviating for a bit. Added love for this top: I got it for 30% off!!!


Oxygen oversized long sleeve top, old pair of shorts, Reebok dunks

Jessica Sanchez

I really am not a fan of this year’s batch of American Idol contestants, but after seeing this – the restraint but equally proportional energy is just amazing! Perfect for the blue day that is today… Why is it raining in SUMMER?!

May the odds be ever in your favor

I can’t wait for the 22nd!!!! My birthday week (and month for that matter) is really getting better by the moment! I’ll stop blabbering before I spoil any detail, but all I know is that Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) is mine (lawlz!) It helped that I got to read the book when I already saw who’s playing Peeta, though I’d prefer Gale to be a hotter character (Liam Hemsworth is a wrong choice.) But having Peeta look like this —

— helps my imagination immensely. Magkasala na kung magkasala haha! GAD PEETA Y U SO HAWT?

I’m printing this ID Card before I watch the premiere!!! District 4 represent yo! Am zeh hottest fisherman alive.

So yeah, forgive the unnecessary fanboying, aside from a hot guy playing Peeta (and that jaw porn, gawd) Hunger Games is really a fast-paced riveting pageturner.

P.S. This is the fastest book I’ve ever read, considering that I’m working and that I have the attention span of a three year old. No, really. Seriously.
P.S.S. Ok. Back to Peeta… PEETAAAAAAAAA —

Waiting for this scene in the movie!

LSS of the week: Louder by Charice

This is what me and my friends would call panty liner sounds. LOL! Nothing derogatory though – we love the song! It just has the vibe of something that can be used in a sanitary napkin commercial. Love that it’s so upbeat though.

I just can’t fathom how sucky the styling in this music video. And why not get more and better dancers, and just let Charice emote throughout the song? Really, two dancers can’t hide how bad she is at dancing and not as good as she is at singing. SHE CAN’T DANCE, KAY?

So yeah, I love the song, but the video… SRSLY CHARICE?

Whitney, watch this from wherever you are

I know we must not make light of the demise of one of the world’s greatest voices. I just thought Whitney Houston will laugh at how creative people can get with her songs. She has inspired, not only singers, but people in general with her songs of love, encouragement, inspiration, and positivity. And even with this parody, I still think that Whitney has served a great deal of inspiration.

On other news though, how do I watch the Grammy’s while on the go? Need to watch that Coldplay performance and the Whitney tribute. Hmmmmmmm.

P.S. And oh, how intriguing it is that she died on the eve of the world’s premiere music award-giving night. I say depression is involved. Nevertheless, we love you W!

MDNA of the Rocks

Madge tells us no one’s too old to rock and groove!
Though, really, she can’t flex that much anymore… *creys*
I love that she started with Vogue! Powerful beginnings are powerful!
*at this early, I’ll ask you to excuse the exclamation abuse :P*
LMFAO kinda watered down the performance IMHO…
WHO IS MIA? And there goes Nicki doing crazy faces again!
They both look like a slut. And Madge looks younger than them.
My friend thought Ceelo was Andre Leon Talley! LOL, must be the robe?
Akshuli, ang lakas maka-Sister Act ni Ceelo Green
It actually felt like the church of Madonna, on the final segment.
How is Madonna NOT ageing?
Love the knee-high, high-heeled booties. IS SHE REALLY 50+?
Or maybe they’re hiding the real MDNA (this is mindfuckin’ creepy)

Nevertheless, we all love her Givenchy ensemble. You know you did!!!

P.S. Forgive the mind-vomit. I was just really stunned by her performance. For non-sports people like me, it’s the best we can get from Super Bowl.
P.S.S. Nvm the title, I was just thinking how to make it witty/catchy/unconventional, errrr… lol!

LSS of the week: Love on Top by Beyonce

I think I should do this every week! Srsly, I’ve set up a playlist named LSS already and just put it on repeat all day. I really get so addicted to songs easily that I do this almost every freakin’ time!

And since it’s the love month… errr, not that I have one, k? Beyonce just nails this song, maybe still love drunk after giving birth. I know I’m not making any logic yet again, just forgive my rationalizing skills, k? ANYWAY, I digress. It does not mean that I don’t have a date this V-day *ehem, ehem* that there’s no reason to listen to these cheesy songs… Malay nyo ba, LOL!

Basta YOU put my love on TOP, okay? :P

Now everybody asks me why I’m smiling out from ear to ear.
(They say love hurts)
But I know
(It’s gonna take a little work)
Nothing’s perfect, but it’s worth it after fighting through my tears
And finally you put me first

*kilig, kilig*
