Just BLO Me: You’re Not Cheating On Your Hairdresser…

Blo Dry Bar | Blow Dry, Flawless Hair, Serendra, Rockwell

Answering the call of the hair-impaired and those addicted to killer-coifs, Blo Blow Dry Bar is coming to the Philippines. The first to market the no cuts, no color concept in America, Blo is opening 2 locations in Asia (or 27th and 28th in the world!) Blo Rockwell and Blo Serendra are cueing up their [...]

MAC Opulash Optimum Black Mascara x MAC 212 Flat Definer Brush

MAC Opulash Optimum Black Mascara, MAC 212 Flat Definer Brush | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style, Lifestyle

In the years leading up to this day, I’ve been through countless experimental makeup pursuits which solidify my resolve that with a certain amount of effort coupled with a significant showing of interest, someone who lacks skill will eventually learn enough of what makeup type she feels is comfortable for herself and suitable to her [...]

Studio Fix Liquid, Select Sheer, Powder Blush and Fluidline

MAC Cosmetics, Makeup - Studio Fix Liquid Foundation in NC35, Select Sheer Pressed Powder in NC35, Powder Blush in Matte Mocha, Fluidline in Blacktrack | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style, Lifestyle

As you may have noticed (esp those who regularly keeps me company here), I haven’t been blogging about beauty much. Since I’ve pretty much given up (at least temporarily) reviewing each and everything that arrives on my doorstep, I only get to write about the stuff that I buy and use. Much of what you’ve [...]

Beachwear: Suits, Boardshorts and Sunnies

Boracay, Discovery Shores - Sasha Manuel, Outfits, Beach Wear, Topshop, Billabong, Rayban | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style

Jump shots (not referring to Basketball, mmkay?), anyone? I like the challenge thrown by this act to every photographer. Of course, aim is to capture the subject mid-air but it doesn’t end there. The photographer ought to have an eye for pleasing expressions, grace in movements plus important elements like light and shadow, throw in [...]

Colour Crushing on Indigo Dye and Pink Coco

Amplified Creme Lipstick in Cosmo, MAC Cosmetics | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style

Loving the new colours that I’ve added to my beauty and style colour palette. There’s a touch of the old as I rekindle an old flame for the bluish hue then there’s the perpetual acceptance of pink and all the light, ever-so-dainty (both delicate and persnickety) femininity it indubitably represents. Pink Coco is the current [...]

Hair Pampered: Essensity Hydrating Treatment Plus A Trim

Basement Salon - Essensity Treatment, Schwarzkopf | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

There has been a major change of pace in my life and the past week had been spent accommodating new things and people, adjusting to a new environment and re-incorporating myself into a world that I’ve left behind a good couple of years ago. Back in the grind, odd emotions, all good but like with [...]

Greyone Social and the Kicks Trend

Greyone Social | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

This particular style takes me back to the glory days of punk fashion in the 80s and the staple street fashion of the early 90s. It’s the hippest and coolest thing for young people to wear then. Think rolled up shirt sleeves, bold colours (neon even) straight cuts and boom boxes. Checked deck on the [...]

Make Your Own Havaianas 2009

Make Your Own Havaianas | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

Who hasn’t been to one of these things? They’ve held the Make Your Own Havaianas several times now me thinks. I do, however, have to admit that I still haven’t. Been invited but never went. I hear lines are long but experience was incomparable. I guess that’s why friends have asked me if it’s happening [...]

Vintage LV

Vintage Louis Vuitton Shoulder Bag | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

There’s an inexplicable joy in owning a Louis Vuitton bag on its own but a vintage LV? Now, that’s added bliss. Personally, I don’t own one. I simply can’t afford it plus the fact that I’m not a bag person. I reckon my mum will find more rhyme and reason in spending X amount of [...]
