GIFT IDEA: SKECHERS GOWALK

Image
It was just the other day when I felt the chill in the air I realized that the holiday season is back once again. Of course when you think of holidays you also think of really good food, trips, gifts, and a lot of spending! While a trip for the whole family (or at least with your parents) seems like an extravagant idea of a gift, you can always start from the bottom. Buy them shoes. But not just any kind of shoes.
Upon reading the title of this post, I'm pretty sure you already know where this is going.

FIRST INSTINCT

Image
Inspired by that first moment of attraction, when two people's worlds collide and a spark is ignited, 'First Instinct' is the interpretation of that exciting first glance and the initial connection felt.
Abercrombie & Fitch's new fragrance, developed exclusively with Inter Parfums, is all about being naturally sexy, confident, and not afraid to express his deepest feelings. A rugged risk taker, he is sure to capture you with his energy and effortless charm.
"I wanted to create a modern fragrance that balances both the fresh elements of fougere with oriental warmth. All the notes together, create a scent with worldwide appeal for the Abercrombie & Fitch man and beyond," - Phillippe Romano, First Instinct Perfumer.

With a base of amber and musk, Szechuan pepper in the mid-notes, and gin & tonic and melon to finish off the sensory experience in the top notes, 'First Instinct' is a modern masculine blend.

Let's get to know 'First Instin…

TRAVEL ESSENTIALS: TRAVALO | PERFUME POD

Image
One of my airport fears is being held up for something that's inside my hand-carry luggage. I recently experienced that on my way back home from my Taiwan trip and it was nerve-wracking! I overlooked packing this 100ml canister of Super volcanic clay mousse mask I bought from innisfree in my check-in baggage and there I was at the security checkpoint realizing that fear. But luck was on my side that day. They let me through upon checking the product (even though it's 100ml) without taking it. It was not liquid anyway. I was kinda ready to give it up since I bought it for just less than a Php1,000 but a part of me will regret it for sure if the case was otherwise. It's a good product, by the way.

Now if it was a 100ml bottle of perfume, then that'd be a different story. You know how much a good bottle of perfume costs, right? Add that to the personal fact that I love smelling good always especially on travels.
I usually bring two kinds of scents. One for when it's h…

AT HOME: FAVORI SCENTS

Image
Back in high school, I had a girl broke up with me because I smell too good. I used to "shower" myself with Cool Water back then. I later found out that it was not the actual reason why she broke up with me. It was just her way of getting even because I first broke up with her the previous year. I actually accepted the fact that she broke up with me because I smell too good rather than me smelling bad. Long story short, she's happy now with her own family and I'm still mabango.
I like smelling good. I also like good smelling people and places. It instantly lifts up your mood. So imagine when I first got a whiff of Taiwan's stinky tofu. More about that on my Taiwan posts (soon, hopefully).
I have eight dogs at home. Three, a Japanese Spitz, a Chow Chow, and a Shih Tzu, sleep with me in my room. I know it's weird, but I also like smelling them. There's something about their smell that's comforting. But of course, I also prefer my home not to smell like…

DISCOVER DAPPER WITH SALADBOX MAN

Image
Okay, before I proceed, let me just clarify that the GQ magazine you see here is not included in the subscription of Saladbox Man (though there's a nice idea). I just think that Matt Damon, in all his dapper glory, is a perfect sight to go along with this month's Saladbox Man. They're bringing dapper back, in case you didn't know.
For just Php880, expect up to Php4,000+ worth of items ranging from gift certificates, deluxe sized, trial sized, and full sized products, as well as style essentials like socks, tie and even a bracelet! Take a look at what's in store for you when subscribe. Of course, you won't be getting everything on the list but what's good about the Saladbox Sample Select feature is that you get to choose the featured items of the month: Nivea Men Invisible for black and white deo OR Nivea Men Acne and oil control face scrub  AND En Pierre handcrafted men's bracelet or Knitties knit tie.

DENIM TALK: A PAIR FOR EVERY LOOK

Image
Denim equates cool. That's what was instilled in my head growing up because my uncle wears it in rotation. He was my favorite. Any favorite of mine is cool.
I remember this one particular denim jacket that he wears every time he goes out. So sputing, they say. He let me wear it one time just for kicks (it was ten sizes bigger; I was just 5) and even though I may look funny and all cute (haha), I won't forget that awesome feeling that I made it to cool kingdom. My uncle prefers matching his jeans with denim jacket in blue. As for me, I prefer the darker version. Or at least for this weather we're having lately.
For your other moods, check out Penshoppe's roster of international brand ambassadors and their take on the classic fashion staple.

REGETTACANOE

Image
I made it my life mission (lol) to treat my shoe collection as if they were my kids. And with that, no playing favorites.

But just like any other families, there will always be that someone who's unique and a complete standout. Take my RegettaCanoe shoes for example. It's not usual. It's not even simple if you're gonna think about how it's made. And it's more than just a pair of shoes. It's a hardworking pair of shoes actually (and to think getting stepped on a regular basis is not hard work enough).
Along with the uniqueness comes the consideration of how to build a look up wearing them. You really have to think about what to wear with them. Now I took cue from the brand's lookbook. I kept everything simple and just let the shoes do the talking.
Born in the insanely talented mind of Yasuo Takamoto in 2005, RegettaCanoe was launched in 2012, bringing together revolutionary shoe-making material and techniques with the modern interpretation of the beautif…
