MUST DOWNLOAD APP: PENSHOPPE

I must admit that I used to be not into mobile apps for the sole reason of me foregoing "experiencing" the world and just rely everything that I need on technology. Online shopping? It was not for me. I wanna physically experience the thrill of the hunt. The interaction with the people. The victory of finding a good deal.

But that was then when I was younger (and with no credit card to my name -hehe). As I grew older, I started to slowly venture into the wonderful world of mobile apps. I actually downloaded around 30 in the past 3 months. Several of those were online shopping apps. I'm hooked! I guess, aside from age, it also goes with the amount of responsibilities that I have taken on putting physical shopping on the bottom of my priority list.

But I realized, I also need my exercise. Just armed with the convenience of mobile apps.

One mobile app that I recently discovered is Penshoppe. "Finally!" I thought when I found out about it.  It's not an online shopping app by the way. It's a balance between physical shopping and being updated on the latest about the brand with lots of perks and rewards!

So what's with the app?

Here's an overview:

3 IN 1 AXE MAN

Admit it. With all the choices Axe has been offering us guys, I'm sure that you're kinda confused as to what to get for your personal style. Yes, style and scent go hand in hand. I myself got confused as to which Axe scent, Gold or Black, (it was Gold) will go well with a formal look I was sporting back then when the latter was released. My solution? Get all, or at least the three I'm featuring here on the blog.

Believe me, there are three kinds of style for every guy out there and with that, three Axe Fragrances to go along with it.

Here's a simple guide I made for you to try.

AXE GOLD for a formal look. Think suits and black tie events. For this set, I'd wear this with a navy suit.
Axe Gold + Edwin watch + Frank monk-strap leather shoes + socks with Argyle pattern
Now, for my personal favorite.

FINDING THE RIGHT SHIRTS IN F&F'S END OF SEASON SALE

Unlike most people, I lost weight over the holidays. The secret? I got sick. Long story short, I now look lousy in my size small shirts that's why I decided to buy at least a couple of right-fitting shirts to last me until I get my "normal" size back.

F&F was one of the first brands I considered because I know for a fact the quality and fit of their clothes. I should know because I was there during the opening of their first store in Glorietta (I couldn't pass up the Superman t-shirt and shorts set). I was lucky enough to visit their store during their End of Season Sale a couple of days ago and saw a lot of choices...

...in my current size, too! I fit XS now.

Aside from the style and the quality, what I really like about the clothes at F&F is its affordability! Take the discount from the sale off and I can still take 3-4 shirts home with my Php3,000. How much more if you put the discount back? Visit them this weekend and see these many choices.

GIFT IDEA: SKECHERS GOWALK

It was just the other day when I felt the chill in the air I realized that the holiday season is back once again. Of course when you think of holidays you also think of really good food, trips, gifts, and a lot of spending! While a trip for the whole family (or at least with your parents) seems like an extravagant idea of a gift, you can always start from the bottom. Buy them shoes. But not just any kind of shoes.

Upon reading the title of this post, I'm pretty sure you already know where this is going.

FIRST INSTINCT

Inspired by that first moment of attraction, when two people's worlds collide and a spark is ignited, 'First Instinct' is the interpretation of that exciting first glance and the initial connection felt.

Abercrombie & Fitch's new fragrance, developed exclusively with Inter Parfums, is all about being naturally sexy, confident, and not afraid to express his deepest feelings. A rugged risk taker, he is sure to capture you with his energy and effortless charm.

Effortless charm. *ahem*
"I wanted to create a modern fragrance that balances both the fresh elements of fougere with oriental warmth. All the notes together, create a scent with worldwide appeal for the Abercrombie & Fitch man and beyond," - Phillippe Romano, First Instinct Perfumer.

With a base of amber and musk, Szechuan pepper in the mid-notes, and gin & tonic and melon to finish off the sensory experience in the top notes, 'First Instinct' is a modern masculine blend.

Let's get to know 'First Instinct' a little bit better.

TRAVEL ESSENTIALS: TRAVALO | PERFUME POD

One of my airport fears is being held up for something that's inside my hand-carry luggage. I recently experienced that on my way back home from my Taiwan trip and it was nerve-wracking! I overlooked packing this 100ml canister of Super volcanic clay mousse mask I bought from innisfree in my check-in baggage and there I was at the security checkpoint realizing that fear. But luck was on my side that day. They let me through upon checking the product (even though it's 100ml) without taking it. It was not liquid anyway. I was kinda ready to give it up since I bought it for just less than a Php1,000 but a part of me will regret it for sure if the case was otherwise. It's a good product, by the way.

Now if it was a 100ml bottle of perfume, then that'd be a different story. You know how much a good bottle of perfume costs, right? Add that to the personal fact that I love smelling good always especially on travels.

I usually bring two kinds of scents. One for when it's hot and the other, for when it's cold. But bringing two bottles of perfume can be a hassle especially at times when the trip is short and when I don't have baggage allowance. In comes Travalo.

Let's get to know the brand first.
