THE ESSENCE BY DAVID BECKHAM

Image
David Beckham introduces The Essence, his fresh and dynamic new fragrance for men. Inspired by David's sense of adventure, this vibrant, contemporary scent captures the spirit of the open road.  The Scent - The Essence of Masculinity
A vibrantly sexy scent, The Essence is the perfect expression of David's cool masculinity. The fragrance opens on the zesty brightness of grapefruit blended with luminous violet leaves and sparkling lavender to create an invigorating rush of freshness. At the heart, a mouth-watering duo of juicy pineapple and crisp apple fused with spicy notes of cardamom to reveal a strong urban virility. Finally, rich, earthy tones of tonka bean and cashmeran are enhanced by the timeless magnetism of patchouli heart to confer a sensual warmth and elegance. Dynamic and charismatic, this is a fragrance to be worn with confidence.
What to wear
The Essence will complement fresh, clean looks such as *ahem*, THIS or David Beckham's in his ad (see bottom photo). The…

LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #93 - PRINT MINIMALIST

Image
This is my regular-day-at-work look. Simple and clean... …with a twist.
A closer look:

Twist #1: The eyewear. See those prints? Groovy eh?
Twist #2: The footwear (including socks!). Nothing beats bite-size portions of the camouflage print to liven up an otherwise simple look. Don't forget the color of the shoes too!
Now a person looking as if he smells nice shouldn't just rely on the initial impression his clean and simple look gives off. Being "mukhang-mabango" shouldn't stop at just that. In proximity, the thought of "Ah, he really does smell good" should pop into people's head when they get pass by you.

The perfect scent for this look? David Beckham The Essence.
Simple, clean but also... with a twist. Will talk more about that next.

TODAY WAS FAMILY DAY

Image
And by family, I meant my canine family.
I was invited by Pet One to the first stop of their Dog Care On Wheels (DCOW) project at SM Fairview. Seeing this as an opportunity to bond with my dogs, I brought Yogi (the Chow Chow) and Cullen (the Husky) along with me. I originally planned on bringing the St. Bernards (Ember and Golly) but the hot and humid weather that we're having of late made me think otherwise. Imagine the scene that I'll be creating if either of my gentle giants had a seizure attack.
Of course I also thought of bringing the "batas" - Ringo, my Japanese Spitz but nah… I don't wanna be kicked out of the venue by his delinquency.
I'll be talking more about the event on a separate post alright? In the meantime, here are some photos to make you go aww... And then there's Yogi...
I'm ending this day by watching Adventure Time. It's gonna be my first time to watch this animated series (don't judge) and based on what I've heard fro…

MAKE YOUR READING MORE FULLY REWARDING WITH THE FULLY BOOKED RCBC BANKARD MASTERCARD

Image
It's the weekend!
You know what I love about this part of this week? I get to rest and catch up on my "traditional" reading!
I already expressed my love for honest-to-goodness-real books HERE and this time, allow me to share to you some of my greatest book finds.
Now I have a special place in my heart, DVD player and shelf for anything Hayao Miyazaki: Also books related to blogging, graphic novels (the sappy and sometimes gory kinds) and the literally heavy ones. I buy all my books from Fully Booked because I have their discount card that entitles me a 10% discount on cash purchases and 5% when using my credit card on international/imported titles. But Fully Booked does not only sell books. They also carry magazines, records in CDs and DVDs and a whole lot of other stuff! The thing with the last items that I mentioned is that the 10% discount powers of my Fully Booked card doesn't apply to them. Sad, I know, but we can't have it all or so they say.

Just when I t…

LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #92 - COLOR VISTA

Image
This is how a CEO looks like when he's on a break... Obviously the lack of colors from the usual suit and tie brought out the opportunity to play with hues but I'm not the type who wears drab colors in the office on a regular basis and this vacation look is probably the most "common" that I have in my arsenal of clothing so never mind what I just said. Now when a CEO based in the always-sunny-metro goes out on a vacation, he prefers somewhere cool and relaxing. Somewhere bad traffic is probably a myth and lunch doesn't require you to be in your suit to eat.

For these "rare" occasions, my most favorite place to escape to is Tagaytay particularly at Taal Vista Hotel.
I think this view alone is enough to convince you why.
Now you too can indulge in your well-deserved break without breaking the bank! Visit the SM Hotels Dream Destinations Booth at SM MOA starting today until April 21, 2013 for GREAT DISCOUNTS on Room, Dining, and Wedding packages and a cha…
