SARABIA: THE RELAUNCH

Image
This Tag Heuer aviators which I posted on my Instagram account (follow me! @PaulThePRGuy) a couple of times has got to be my latest favorite eyewear!
Look! I even brought it to my recent trip in El Nido, Palawan! Like what I've said, it's my new favorite.
I got it at the relaunch of Sarabia Optical where the brand is exclusively sold.

Sarabia Optical is kicking things up a notch higher this year with its relaunch featuring a newly revamped Greenbelt 1 store and a fashion show showcasing premium brands exclusively available at the store last March 11.
Here's a closer look at the brands featured at the relaunch:

HERVE LEGER NOW IN ASIA

Image
The exclusive and ultra chic fashion house responsible for pioneering the iconic "bandage dress" most favored by Hollywood A-Listers like Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Diane Kruger, Miranda Kerr and Jennifer Lopez, has finally found its way to the Philippines' style capital Manila, opening its only store in Asia. Flanked by equally high-end and luxurious brands, Herve Leger opens at the upscale East Wing of Shangri-La Plaza last March 11, 2014.
Herve Leger has always been synonymous with the word sexy. And what better way to celebrate its sexiness than to have some of Manila's beautiful and of course, sexy, people gather together at the launch over cocktails and good music?

LOCALE GASTROBAR

Image
If I were to neglect my Christian morals and decide to live the rest of my life as a glutton, this is where you'll find me in most of my eating time. Believe me, it's a sin that you'll envy doing. At Locale Gastrobar, of course. In any other place, it'd be just meh.
Being the first gastrobar in the Ortigas Center, Locale Gastrobar is a chic and comfortable place to enjoy a drink and excellent food in the area making it the go-to hub for great food, great company, great music, with a full bar serving local and imported beers!
I was just there the other night and boy I can't wait to come back for more of what you're gonna see next!

THE PERFECT DATE

Image
In the Private Lives episode of House (Season 6), the team had a hard time treating a *ahem* blogger because she insists on discussing all the details of the procedures on her blog to the point of relying her decisions based on the feedback she gets from her readers. Long story short, she didn't die and still had a happy ending with her husband (he threatened to leave her if she's gonna post about choosing a plastic heart valve for her operation instead of a pig's —she's a vegan, by the way. She chose the pig's). On a more related (and interesting!) note, three male characters went speed dating. Something I wouldn't do in real life. One character got a lot of positive feedback from the female participants and lost to a bet of him getting most of the numbers of the women based on his character (and profession?) instead of his looks. He had to pretend that he was a bum and was not allowed to mention that he's a doctor but still, he emerged popular among the …

But it also brought hope. A new symbol of hope is coming. Remember this iconic Bench moment?

The boat is making a comeback. And so is Gomez.

NUDITY ON THE RED CARPET

Image
Hollywood awards season is on full throttle! Aside from the actual awarding itself, this season is also grill time for shows like Fashion Police. It's advisable to not go the safe route (coz it's boring) and arm (or foot?) yourself with what Hollywood's top-notch actors and lifestyle celebrities were sporting these days. The best weapon of choice? Stuart Weitzman's "The Nudist". See the rest of the stars who opted for "nudity" on the red carpet.

A WEEK'S WORTH OF BLACK

A sad event of epic proportions had me resorting to wearing anything black for the past month. I'm gonna go personal and talk about it on a different entry.
In the meantime, here's a week's worth of everything black!
