LOOKBOOK 296 + SNOWCAPS FEATURE

Image
It has been customary for me to come up with an article on "looking young" (or at least not looking your actual age) every time I turn a year older. Last time, it was a chemical peel followed by a chemical-based skincare regimen. This time, I'm taking the less drastic route.
Have you heard of glutathione? With all the brands readily-available and billboards scattered around the metro, I'm pretty sure that you do. Now, let's talk about it.

"If you're looking for a watch that will set you apart, this shape has all the right angles." - GQ

Square watch is in! At least that's what GQ is saying in its March 2016 issue.
Fancy that green Nomos Glashutte? It's just $2,320. Now this one's a cooler (pocket-friendly, too!) alternative.

It's the 'Anderson' from the Edwin watch brand.

CHILDREN FIRST! STORYBOOKS BY UNICEF

Image
I've always wanted to own a library just because I love collecting reading materials as much as I love to read. To date, I probably have more than three thousand magazines, comics, and books combined. But even that's the case, I can say that I had a healthy balance of activities I involved myself with growing up as a child and that includes playing rough. Who would've thought? Haha. But my favorite would have to be reading. That's when I started to imagine great things not just for myself, but also, for the world.
Excluding school books, the first reading material I got hooked with (until now!) was Archie. I related to Jughead the most because food! And also, a whole lot of Reggie Mantle just because he's really competitive. Go on an adventure, do well in school, and strive for success (in love and life) were just some of the lessons but the ultimate thing the comics taught me was to enjoy my childhood and have fun!
Reading (the right books) is fun and educational…

NOW SHOWING: GIRLFRIEND FOR HIRE

Image
Love is a funny thing. At least that's what the local movie scene is trying to teach us with all the romantic comedy films that are showing this love month.
In this particular film, love is not just funny. It's complicated, too. Based on the hit Wattpad novel of the same title, Girlfriend for Hire tells the quirky and complicated love story of Nami Shanaia San Jose and Bryle Stanford, played by one of today's hottest love teams, Yassi Pressman and Andre Paras.
Filled with belly laughs and kilig moments, the story revolves around Bryle and Nami's agreement to pretend to be in a relationship in order to please Bryle's grandfather.
Nami, a first year HRM working student who lives with her aunt and two cousins, cross paths with Bryle, an arrogant grandchild of the university's founder, in very unlikely situations making them hate each other at the beginning. But with the agreement, the two knew each other better and became closer along the way. Watch the trailer b…

COUNTRY'S FIRST ARCHERY CHALLENGE MAZE OPENS IN THE SANDBOX AT ALVIERA

Image
I must admit that one of the reasons why I've found an interest in archery is the Hunger Games books. I wouldn't say that I'm crazy about the trilogy (and the movies as well) but there's something badass, albeit primitive, about being able to hunt and defend yourself with just a bow and an arrow. You know what else is badass? Being able to actually do it Legolas-style! Complete with orcs as targets, running for dear life while loading an arrow in the process, minus the tumbling and rolling of course. Add the pressure of a time limit and you'll get an exciting way to enjoy archery!
So if you're planning on a weekend beach trip up north, why not include the latest attraction of Sandbox in your itinerary?
