LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #3

Image
For this post, I'm paying tribute to one of the brands that I like - Ferretti! Yes, it's mainly a woman's brand and we go well, a long way back professionally (is a year long enough? hehe). So why I like this particular brand? Let me count the ways...
Ferretti, in spite of the Italian sounding name, is a Pinoy brand!Ferretti has a cool/nice owner! You know I love you Ms.Cecille!Ferretti makes the best if not good quality shoes for women. They have been making Filipina feet feel spoiled and pampered at a fraction of a price compared to other shoe brands with the same quality!Ferretti has men's shoes na! Finally...Yes, you read it right. Ferretti has something for us men. Let me show you how I built my look up with the Ferretti Espadrilles which they sent me,




Rule of the thumb (in my experience that is), if buying a pair of espadrilles, get 1 size smaller than your actual size. I'm an 8 so that's why I requested for a 7 and it fits perfectly!
Unlike the typical esp…

LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #2

Things are pretty intense in the office lately. I say, embrace the intensity! Fight fire with fire! - that's my inspiration here.

TOTD: FISHEYE LOMOGRAPHY CAMERA

Remember my Things To Bring On An Outing post? Finally, I was able to try my Fisheye Camera during the company's outing in Zambales. But before I show you my masterpieces (hehe), let me show you first the hard ware.

LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #1

Image
Running a company is not an easy feat especially if you're a very hands-on type of a boss. Meetings everywhere, pitching (and a whole lot of pitching!), and the ultimate challenge - the staffs. And if things tend to get out of hand to the point of hell breaking loose, of course I have to stand up and act how a real boss should... in style!
Wore this today to a contract signing with the people behind SMX and Megatrade Hall. Yes guys, PMP Communications (officially) will be the organizer of next year's big events on the said venues! PFW not included though.:( By the way, this shot was taken in SMX on the third day of PFW.

PLAYING WITH FIRE

On a not Zambales-related post, allow me to share some photos I took using Apple (my Canon 1100D) during one of my visits in Puerto Galera a couple of months back.

I just played with my ISO settings and boom! result: wow shots!
This was taken at night (obviously) at the beach of Puerto Galera. There were fire dancers, I have my camera and out of curiosity as to how to capture light writing shots like that of the Nescafe TV Ad, I simply tweaked my camera's settings here and there and voila! Money shots!

THINGS TO BRING ON AN OUTING

And we're back to regular blogging! It's been quiet a while! The company went on a team building/ outing in Zambales this past weekend and I was supposed to update you first before leaving but mind you, last Friday's office schedule (aside from the actual trip itself) is waaayy beyond crazy! So crazy that I wasn't able to steal a portion of my time to blog! Pasensya na.

So here's what I got myself for the trip:

So... want to see what's inside those bags? But before I do the big reveal, I have to warn you (especially those who are first time visitors) that this blog is mainly about spending. So if one day you'll see me on the street begging for food (with my Ray-Ban's on) please find time to stop and believe that I'm actually begging ok? Blame it on the blog. Anyway, here are the stuffs!

This is my first Ray-Ban. Pangarap ko to. Vampire mode on the beach in Zambales. Harhar!
What started as a simple desire to capture good photos is becoming quiet an a…

NECK AND NECK

In my continuous search for the right stuffs for my GQ I C U October look, I came across these neck accessories from CEO (SM North, The Block).
I'm more of a bow tie than a necktie guy but anything for my readers and this blog. My GQ outfit needs one! By the way, here's an update: I'm 75% complete of my two looks. The other 25% is very vital though because until now, I still don't have a DB! The pressure is on because GQ came out with their November issue (already!). I. Must. Come. Up. With. My. GQ I C U look. ASAP.

Obviously, the title of my post says it all but there's more to that! I'm neck and neck with my blogger self and my corporate persona responsibility-wise. I thought blogging will just be a past time, now I'm an addict!

The Breakdown: CEO necktie Php295 CEO bow tie Php195 Total: Php490

JIMMY CHOO FRAGRANCE LAUNCH - WHAT I WORE & WHAT I GOT

Image
Dressing up for something as sophisticated as the Jimmy Choo Fragrance Launch is quiet a daunting task. Of course, there are people to impress and by people I meant the press. Thank God we're not in the states where what celebrities wear are fodder for shows such as Fashion Police. Come to think of it... I'm not a celebrity and as a blogger, I'm part of the press!

So here's What I Wore to the Jimmy Choo Fragrance Launch:
Yes, yes. I'm trying to be casual cool here. It's 4:00 in the afternoon, gadzooks! If it was an evening affair, now that's a different thing. You'll be seeing James Bond! Haha. I kid you not.

Anyway, here's What I Got:
As expected, since this is a women's fragrance launch, the brand gave away stuffs fit for women. Not that I expected anything from them (inviting me was THE bomb) But who I am to complain? There's a lucky reader out there who will be getting this loot bag from Jimmy Choo. Soon.

I would like to take this opportun…
