TEAM MANILA X THE FAT KID INSIDE | INSTAXED! #38 - ERWAN HEUSSAFF

Image
Let's start this entry with a question. What is The Fat Kid Inside?
The Fat Kid Inside is Erwan Heussaff's passion expressed through a website. The site celebrates and shares the passion, creativity, research, and hard work that fuel healthy cooking, eating and living.

What: The Fat Kid Inside x Team Manila launch
When: October 25, 2013
Where: Team Manila, Rockwell
To express The Fat Kid Inside's zeal for food, Team Manila had to come up with classic yet still modern-looking ideas to translate this collaboration into design and material.
Inspired by chalk typography to give that outdoor cafe feel, this line of apparel sets the mood to a relaxing and fulfilling day either outside or at home.
As for the illustrations, freehand drawings from old cookbooks were set into mind hence giving that nostalgic vibe making one miss the pleasant smell of grandma's cooking.
Now Erwan asks,
"Do you really deserve that donut?"

DEE JAE PA'ESTE "DEE'D" THE SKYDOME

Image
By this time, we all know who Dee Jae Pa'Este is. Now let's see what he had up his sleeves last month as he "did" SM North EDSA's Skydome. 
Commissioned to do the 'Art Sessions' for three different Sundays (September 15, 22 & 29), Dynamic Artist Dee Jae Pa'Este transformed the walls of SM North EDSA's Skydome with his magical hands (and spray cans!) into the awesome and colorful realm of birds, fishes and all things alive and beautiful from which he is known for.
The Skydome is now looking more lively as ever. Just in time for the holiday season! Have you seen SM North EDSA's big Christmas tree by the way?
Before I forget, I was able to have my photos taken with Dee Jae's latest masterpieces as my backgrounds. But not one to break my OC streak the chronological order of how I blog my looks (see Lookbook sidebar, there's still one before this!), perhaps a BTS will do?

The perfect accessories to go with my I'm-going-out-of-the-country-this-weekend (truth: town) look aside from these bags? Scarves and some expensive looking watches.

ADIZERO PRIMEKNIT NOW AVAILABLE IN NEW EXCITING COLOURS THIS SEASON

Image
The new adiZero Primeknit 2.0, the first one-piece upper performance running shoe, is being rolled out in new exciting colours this fall/winter season for both men and women.
Using the latest design tools with a new seamless engineering technology, adidas has created a first-of-its-kind running shoe. While traditional sports shoes are constructed from several different piece, this breakthrough method digitally knits the entire upper in just one piece. Knitting fused yarn fine-tunes the exact amount of flexibility and support needed in every part of the shoe. There is no lining or reinforcements - the strength comes from the fused yarn, digitally-knitted in distinct grid patterns to provide ventilation. This all means lightweight comfort that wraps seamlessly around your foot, whilst fewer materials produce less waste.
James Carnes, head of design for sport performance at adidas, said "We are constantly innovating to bring superior performance products to the greatest athletes in…

SURPRISE! SURPRISE!

Image
I like surprises. I think everyone does.
Did you know that surprises make people remarkably happier?
Psychologist Norbert Schwarz conducted a classic study where it was found that a small but pleasant surprise, such as finding a 10 cents, uplifts a person's mood. Schwarz repeatedly placed a coin near a copy machine where it can be easily seen. When the subjects who found the coin were surveyed shortly thereafter, their overall satisfaction with life was significantly higher than those who did not find the coin.
While the study was conducted at a time when a coin can buy more than it does today, the basic conclusion is that even a tiny, pleasant surprise can improve one's disposition.
It's not the value of what you find. It's that something positive happened to you," stressed Schwarz.
Whether you're a kid or a grown up, you will not be able to resist the joy and pleasure of discovering something new. Bent on providing this kind of joy, a unique chocolate treat…

LOOKBOOK #128 - THE ICE MONTHS HAS COMETH | SM ICE SKATING | THE NEW VELOCI COLLECTION

Image
What do you get when you go on a random trip for just an overnight stay in Baguio? One decent set of outfit photos. Just one. Pfft.
I miss this place already.
Peace of mind
+ layers of clothing.
I rarely get to do those in Manila.
Plus points for the cool climate for making it easier for me to do my poses thing without sweating buckets.
Photos by Michael Chuapoco
Here's a detailed perspective of what I'm wearing:
And a closer look on the things that made my look interesting:
If you are missing the cool air of Baguio but doesn't have the luxury of time (just the luxury), try treating your whole family to an hour of ice skating at the SM Mall of Asia. I was able to experience it with my online family a few months back and survived the whole ordeal (haha) without falling on my butt and embarrassing myself in the process. It was my first time too so oh yeah (brushes my shoulders)!
Visit SM Ice Skating until November 30, 2013 and skate your way for a chance to win a family cruis…

A WEEK'S WORTH OF SHOES (CAMO EDITION)

Image
So I got this magazine as a pasalubong from Mark of Stylebible.ph from his recent trip abroad. A magazine devoted to everything camo. And free (I offered to pay but he refused. Mark's such a nice guy)! I couldn't be any happier.
I'm glad that Looker consists mainly of photos. Most, if not all, of the articles were written in Thai. But who needs words when the trend in focus here is the camo print, yes? All you have to do is just sift right through the photos... and appreciate.

So how far along am I with my fixation for the print you ask? Let's start with a week's worth of shoes!
