Topshop || Topman Flagship Store Re-Opening

25 May 2011

I believe most of you will agree with me that “Bills Payment” mails are the most stressful. Not just the bills but also the toxic of paying it. I personally go to the bank and telco store to pay. I don’t just ask someone to do it for me, it’s the “OC” in me when it comes to numbers. One night, while checking on my billing mails I saw a not so familiar envelope. I felt so special when I opened it.

It’s an invitation for the re-opening of Topshop/Topman Flagship Store.


I tried to invite some of my friends since I am entitled to bring a +1. Only Karla was available on the day of the event. She also likes photography and I thought we can practice it there.

TOPSHOP is a British fashion retailer brand of clothing, accessories, shoes and make-up for women while TOPMAN is the fashion business counterpart of Topshop that caters men’s clothing, shoes and accessories.

Some of the photos outside the store before the event started. Since I received an invite, we can already enter the store during press event.

Good food, booze and wine and good music while shopping? It’s the best place on earth right?

The Food.

DJ’s spinning.


DJ Ornusa personally asked for this shot and she asked me to pout. That’s the only “pout” that I can. Lol!


Some of the cute stuff.

Thank you again, Topshop and Topman Philippines for inviting me!




Forever 21 Philippines

11 July 2010

Originally known as Fashion 21, the first Forever 21 store was founded in Los Angeles, California. It is one of the leading RTW stores in the world. They sell clothing, beauty products and accessories both for men and women. Forever 21 became famous for their trendy style and reasonable pricing.

In 2010, Forever 21 opened it’s first flagship store in Philippines. The store is located at the 2nd level of SM Megamall. It was indeed one of the most successful brand that opened here in the Philippines. As a proof, as much as I want to check the place and clothes on it’s opening weekend, the line at the entrance is just unbelievable! So I only have this wall photo.


I went back after a week, thank heaven it is already normal.

Here are some of my photos.

These were the only photos I took because the security guard called my attention. Kudos to the staff of Forever 21! They were all smiling and very helpful.

Fashion is something, Style is everything

07 July 2013

For those who are about to raise their eyebrows… No, I am not a stylist nor a fashion consultant. It’s just that people who know me the best trust my eye and taste in fashion, they often ask my opinion about what to wear and how to accessorize them, and I am more than happy to oblige.

What I tell them is what I’ll be imparting to you.

It all about COMFORT. You could wear the season’s best but if you’re not comfortable, they will not look good on you. All you did was buy expensive clothes. You could consult trend mags, but they should not overwhelm your style because you will end up with a disaster and be an eyesore to other people.

After we were given our clothing allowance last Friday, me and my good friend, Tina helped our colleague in choosing his clothes and accessories. Helping him was a good stress-reliever.

And then I remembered the first few people I styled, My nieces and nephew… Lol!

And of course for myself.

As you can see, I go for what’s comfortable. As Alexander McQueen would say.. “ I think there is beauty in everything. What ‘normal’ people would perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it.” Go for the classy look because fashion fades but style is eternal. Naks! Lakas maka-Yves Saint-Laurent.



TRAVELGRAM: Hong Kong Disneyland

30 June 2012.

This is actually a trip that didn’t cross my mind that time. Me and my best friend, Patty had this tampuhan before this was planned. She actually insisted that I should join this trip because in the long run we will still patch things up and this adventure is one for the books. True enough, this trip is really a memorable one. Not just because it’s our first time to go out of the country but also the thought of fulfilling one of our dreams, which is to go abroad together.

The waiting game. We were on an early morning flight, that explains our sleepy look in the lounge.

Our first Hong Kong photo.


We actually rode a train to get our luggage.

This is it! My childhood dream. Disneyland. I. Can’t. Believe. It.

tumblr_inline_mpcydhpWeb1qz4rgp tumblr_inline_mpcyh7YPVR1qz4rgp


Hong Kong Disneyland consists of seven themed areas as of this writing: Main Street, USA, Fantasyland, Adventureland, Tomorrowland, Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point, and Toy Story Land. We experienced a bipolar weather inside. One time it’s raining hard then it’s so sunny the next time. This explains why we don’t have so much photos here.

The Space Mountain is an indoor roller-coaster. It’s very dark inside and you can only see some glow lights. You will be clueless, and the next time you’ll know the ride already dropped. I’ve heard so much about it and most of the people are saying that going to Disneyland is non-sense if you will not try the Space Mountain. And yes, for the heck of it I tried it and it was indeed an awesome experience.


Pardon my natatae look on our first drop.


One of the best events inside Disneyland is the parade. Unfortunately, we were inside the “It’s a small world” ride when that happened. As a consolation, it’s one of the best rides ever.


Here’s the complete It’s a small world experience.

The Golden Mickey was also one of the exciting parts. Most of the Disney characters that I love were in the musicale.

Walking has never been so much FUN!

 And then Patty and I became Mommy Tins subject to practice her photography skills.

For the finale, I tried hard not to shed a tear but I just can’t help it. The Disneyland fireworks display is surreal. The Music made me feel like a child again.

This place was a dream came true and I would definitely go back to Disneyland again, in another country maybe. I wish!XOXO,D.
