LOCKED AND LOADED

Image
Experience is the best teacher.
I realized that when my brother called me one morning to borrow my Travelon bag for one of his daily work trips. Initially, I wondered why out of all the bags I owned, why my Travelon? It dawned on me that a few years back, his messenger bag was slashed (you know the rest of the story) while riding a bus to work. The Anti-Theft feature of the bag probably sealed the deal.
Why Travelon? Because aside from your valuables securely locked inside the bag, it's loaded with a lot of features too!
To give you an overview of what these Anti-Theft bags from Travelon are, watch this video:

Travelon was founded in 1978 as Travel Caddy, Inc. From its humble beginnings of 11 employees and 10 products, Travelon is now a worldwide leader in travel accessories with offices in key cities around the world. Commited in making Travel Easier for its customer, Travelon has designed hundreds of innovative products and accessories aimed at addressing all kind of traveling …

WHAT'S HOT: PASTEL HAIR

Image
Is pastel hair a thing? I know I've seen a couple of billboards along EDSA of retail giants with their models sporting pastel hair (and their latest collections, of course) in the past months thinking it's just for shock value. It made me look. I thought that was the achievement the statement was aiming for. Look.

When I think of pastel, I think Instagram-popular macarons. And clothes (the shade tends to make me look younger). Now pastel hair? If I was in a cosplay convention or better, Japan, then I guess it's alright.

Now, waking up this morning to "shocking" news at the AMA's (Kesha is not her "usual" self) has brought me the answer I'm looking for this post's opening question.
It's legit. Pastel hair is a thing. SM City North EDSA and its partner brands from Watsons established that last November 16, 2013 via the We Love Pastel Fair.

Here are some photos from the launch:

LOOKBOOK #133 - NEVER BETTER

Image
Looking comfortable in my sneakers and elbow patches at the park, this is me projecting what I'd probably look like and where you'll see me most of the time when I hit the big 5-0. An old guy living the rest of his life in picturesque Japan*. That's where I want to retire. Or at least somewhere cold so that I can still pile on the layers and be stylish and comfortable at the same time.
That is, if things continue to get better.
Still on the topic of things getting better, here's a big shout out to the awesome duo of NICK AUTOMATIC. Congrats for completing another cycle of 365. Stay awesome!

KRIS AQUINO TALKS ABOUT FAMILY TRADITIONS, GIVING GIFTS, AND WHY SHE LOVES CHRISTMAS SHOPPING AT THE SM STORE

Image
Like all families in the Philippines, which is said to have the longest Christmas celebration in the world, the Aquinos have their own special way of celebrating Christmas. 
“It’s our Christmas tradition to have Mass together on Christmas Eve,” says Kris, the youngest daughter of icons of democracy Ninoy and Cory Aquino, and a celebrity in her own right, who is considered the Queen of all Media. “When Mom was alive, it was at Times Street and Father Arevalo would be the one to say Mass. That was our family’s Christmas celebration until she passed away.” 
Since 2010, however, the Aquinos – Kris, sisters Ballsy, Pinky, and Viel and brother Noy and their families - have been having their get together at Bahay Pangarap. That’s, of course, because her brother Benigno Simeon Aquino III is the President of the Philippines. “It’s a time for family,” says Kris, who is the face of the I Love Christmas Shopping at SM campaign. “It’s Mass, dinner, gift giving, then others go to their in-laws.”
She a…
