#WIWTD 71: Crusin’

Cruisin

My last summer hooray for this 2015 was at Puerto Nirvana in Puerto Galera last week.

Puerto Nirvana Puerto Galera

It was actually my first time in Galera and I was glad I saw the other side of the island and not the popularly known wild party place of the area. Puerto Nirvana was cozy, simple and serene resort with calm beach front water.

And instead of recommending you to party at the white beach they will show you other activities you can do and places to see in Galera.

One of the best things we did in there was when we wentspeed boating.  That was awesome!

Reasons Balikbayan and Tourist Should Go Shopping at Duty Free Philippines

why go shopping at duty free philippines

I have a confession to make. This was the first time I went shopping at the Duty Free Philippines.

why go shopping at duty free philippines

While I’ve been travelling in and out-of-the-country and I have relatives and friends who comes and go, never did I ever ask them to go shopping there or dragged myself in there. I always thought Duty Free shops inside the airport are more expensive than buying them from the actual stores of an imported brand I want. But I just learned it was not.

Yesterday, I was one of those invited by the Duty Free Philippines to take a look at their renovated Departure and Arrival area stores at the newly rehabilitated Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1 in Philippines.

Why Balikbayan and tourist should go shopping at Duty Free Philippines

They wanted us to see how their shops is now at par with the duty free shop around the world. The also would like us to realize why Balikbayan and tourist should go shopping at the Duty Free Philippines (DFP).

1. Contrary to popular belief, it is more cheaper to shop in the Duty Free shops inside the arrival or departure areas of the airport as prices are way lower. For example fashion brands like bags, clothes and cosmetics are priced 15 to 20 percent lower than when you buy it outside or in the mall stores of the brands.

perfumes are 15% cheaper at duty free
2. Chocolates sold are from U.S. and Australia, compared to chocolates sold in department stores and groceries that are from Malaysia, Indonesia or Singapore. The taste is definitely different if it comes from the U.S. and Australia supplier compared to the regional supplier. Chocolate lovers know that.

3.You can shop before leaving the airport and pick it up later upon arrival so you don’t have to worry about over baggage with their Travelite program.It is a shop-now-pick-up later promotion for outbound passengers of any nationality who will be returning to the Philippines within 30 days. All purchases under this promo is entitled to a 7% discount.

Duty Free Philippines Travelite program
Likewise, the Duty Free outlets at the NAIA Terminal 3 also underwent major renovations to cater to the increase in passenger traffic due to the relocation of major airlines such as Delta, KLM Royal Dutch, Emirates, Singapore Air and Cathay Pacific.

DFP engaged the services of world-renowned design team Sounda Design Inc. led by the brilliant French tandem of Architect Frederic Chevassus and designer Philippe Larosse. The Perfumes, Cosmetics and Fashion areas’ elegant and more functional design adopted an ‘aerodynamic’ concept using aircraft details, such as a plane’s wings and propeller, as inspirations. The new layout aims to project the airport outlet as inviting from all sides of the store perimeter, drawing the target customer into the interior. Sounda Design Inc. is based in Taiwan and Hong Kong and specializes in architectural planning, interior design and construction.

T3 Departure Cosmetic & Fragrance

The DFP stores have been redesigned to achieve a more attractive, dynamic and functional retail environment to cater to the discriminating taste of its shoppers, made up of international travelers, tourists and balikbayans (arriving Filipino residents). And with the new Duty Free shops’ cutting-edge design, state-of-the-art interiors and amenities, DFP has also assembled an impressive line-up of the world’s best travel retail brands that cater to the discriminating tastes of international travelers.

T3 Arrival Liquor & Chocolates

Top perfumery, cosmetics and fashion brands such as Calvin Klein, Estee Lauder, Lancome, Bulgari, Christian Dior, Clinique, Clarins, L’Occitane, La Prairie, SK-II and Lacoste are expected to attract both new and loyal customers. The other highly in-demand duty free product categories still house the usual best-selling brands; such as Cadbury, Hershey’s, M&M’s, Toblerone and Nestle for confectionery, Johnnie Walker, Chivas Regal, Jack Daniels, Hennessy, Ballantines, Remy Martin and Macallan for liquor and spirits; Michael Kors, Anne Klein, Skagen, Cerruti and Armani for watches; among many others.
A special ‘brand’ experience await the jet-setters as fashion boutiques of luxury labels abound at the Terminals, specifically Coach, Salvatore Ferragamo, Longchamp, and Chloe. Aside from these designer brands of top quality leather goods and fashion accessories, DFP also houses an extensive range of the popular Kiehl’s beauty products while the now trendy, high quality jewelry brand, Pandora, is set to open soon.

Terminal 1 Departure area

Store development and product expansion are endeavors perennially on DFP’s priority list. Aside from meeting the high standards of its target customers, these ensure that DFP stores keep pace with the dynamism and sophistication of the international travel retail industry.

Duty Free Philippines is an attached agency of the country’s Tourism Department and its earnings accrue to the DOT to help support the Philippines’ tourism infrastructure, programs and projects. It is also worthy to note that as the country’s only tax and duty free travel retailer, the DFP shops are, significantly, the very first to welcome balikbayans and tourists into the country as well as the last to bid them farewell after having had more fun in the Philippines.

How about you have you shopped here before?  How was your experience?

Stay gorgeous everyone!

#WIWTD 70: In My Element

In My Element

There comes a time in our life that we become at peace with ourselves and the universe that we just glow with happiness. I feel I have come to age and in my element.

This was a stolen shot taken during the TOMS Without Shoes event held at BGC where participants like me willingly took off their shoes to be able to donate a pair to a kid who needs it most.

In My Element

In My Element

What I wore:
Off-shoulder top: STRADIVATRADIVARIUS
Skort: ROMWE

At the moment I am in love with off-shoulder tops. I think it looks so feminine, boho and chic.

How about you, what’s your current outfit favorite?

#DaretoDenim

PhotoGrid_1434586845739

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like denim these days. I mean if the white t-shirt and LBD is a basic in every women’s wardrobe, I think denim is included in there somewhere, be it jeans, jacket, shorts or skirt, everyone out there has a piece of it.

The SM Woman and GTWbySM #DaretoDenim campaign launched at the SM Mega Fashion Hall is a call to every woman of every style, every age, and every size to wear denim and be proud of the body you have!

#DaretoDenim

These women wore their jeans loud and proud. They all come from different walks of life but gathered together to showcase the beauty of wearing denim!

Included in the #DaretoDenim campaign are Emee Dy (teen ice-skating champ), Joyce Titular (former beauty queen), Kat Smorodina (model), Desiree Abesamisand Aya Abesamis (mother and daughter tandem), Melanie Le Trojes (model), Jack Manere (model), Angel Agustian-Co (woman of many roles), Annette Coronel, and Kimi Lu (full figured model).

Side by side with the dare to denim campaign launch was the last leg of the SM Ladies Night as SM Megamall where a flash sale that lasted for only 3 hours happened!

#SMLadiesNight Megamall

Most of the items from the SM Woman section and the GTWbySM is 50% off! Of course I was one of the first to arrive for the sale! Woot!

#DaretoDenim #SMLadiesNight SM Megamall

#DaretoDenim #SMLadiesNight SM Megamall

And here is my shopping haul! I bought some for me and some for my darling daughter! All these for Php2,000.00 only! Can you believe that!

#DaretoDenim #SMLadiesNight SM Megamall shopping haul

The shopaholic in me is very happy. This is the last #SMLadiesNight for the season, the next flash sale like this one will be announced. When? Stay tuned!

I do hope some of you were able to shop!

Stay gorgeous everyone!

NOTD: Free

NOTD Free #nailart

At the event earlier at Estancia Mall there was a Free calligraphy and nail art session aside from free flowing food and drinks.  Having no closest blogger friends with me at the event, I went around to window shop and dream of winning the grand prize lotto jackpot so I can buy every piece of pretty little thing that I see and want.

When I got tired of looking around, I went to the event area had some cocktails and then to the table where they do free stuff for you (the nailart and calligraphy thingamajigs).

Glad I was the first to sit at the nailart table because I picked the kinda complicated nailart design.

NOTD Free

#NOTD Free

This #nailart design was c/o Mae from the Dashing Diva.  She used Patricia and Vinylux nail polishes to create this #notd.

NOTD Free #nailart

Cheers! To the long weekend. I hope you all have a happy holiday!  Happy Philippine Independence.

As for being free, I don’t think we are free, nobody’s free, nothing comes for free, there’s no such thing as free lunch.  Everything comes with a pricetag (money or otherwise).

Stay gorgeous everyone!

Ways to Spice Up Apparel with Personalization

black-monogrammed-tankini-top-size-small-42

It’s difficult to believe but there was a time when people doubted if apparel would ever be one of those goods that could be purchased online. Many people scoffed at the idea that people would even consider buying clothes online. Due to the specifications of clothing goods, it did make the early online shopping for apparel difficult to fathom. Thanks to quick thinking and innovations in recent years, though, buying apparel online now is as commonplace as buying it offline.

Innovation saves the day

Clothing sizes are the most difficult aspect of apparels shopping for companies to tackle. They need a good system of measurement and customization that allows customers to know exactly the type of size and fabrics they’re looking for. Pictures that have zoom options are also a must so that customers can preview the type of fabric and stitching on the apparel. Many apps today come with advanced features like this that allow customers to confidently buy clothes online knowing that they will look and feel like their pictures suggest.

The Slash Genertion
Monogrammed clothing

Companies like Girly-Twirly have jumped onto the scene with monogrammed options that allow customers to put their initials or names on favorite clothing items. These products are good for gifts and many companies don’t just offer apparel but other monogrammed products that let customers interact with the manufacturing world to create their own unique items for themselves or others. As clothing companies have gotten better at sizing options, so have they gotten better at letting customers get closer than ever before to creating the exact kind of apparel that they want to wear on a daily basis.

No clothing company gets it completely right but with the right kind of devotion to technology and the quality of their finished product, they bring a unique flavor to the world of fashion and let customers explore their own creativity while shopping for clothes online. It’s one thing to buy a shirt that someone else made. It’s another experience entirely to put some of your own individualism and spirit into the item you’ll be sporting around during your work or play week. Stores that offer customization frequently put a click here button so that you can browse customization options and simplify your shopping process through their advanced applications. Often there are downloads for apps that make it as simple as clicking a few buttons to create your perfect shirt or accessory.

Stay gorgeous everyone!
