WIWTD #40: Don’t Judge Me I Wore Fake Fur

Fake Mink Fur

I have to do a disclaimer right away as not to prod protest from my animal rights readers. I love animals and I will do anything to keep them in their safe and humble life. I did not hurt or kill any animal or life just to wear this uber fashionable fake mink fur.

Of all the fakes to wear fake fur is something I’m OK with. I just can’t help but wear this one when it was sent to me by an overseas clothing store to me by surprise.

I think they don’t know we don’t have winter here in the Philippines so this stayed in my closet for as long as it could and alas it made its debut appearance at the Philippine Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015 show last night. There’s no other place I think I can wear it but an uber fashionable event.

Super glad that my good photographer/blogger friends was also at PhFashionWeek so I was able to get nice photos of me too!

Super smiles you can’t see my eyes. Super love this fake mink fur vest I’m wearing. It’s so soft, light, it gives you warmth wehn in cold place and doesn’t heat you up on warm places. It has a nice silk lining inside protects you and the fake fur from skin to fur contact.  The only way to clean this one is thru dry cleaning to keep the softness intact.  If you have a nice fluffy stuff toy that is how this one feels!

Glutamax White Zumba Party

Group shot of course

I Zumba almost everyday, I like doing it because it is a fun way to exercise compared to the boring gym setting where you lift weights or stretch without tempp. I like dancing to a nice beat and Zumba stretches all parts of your body and makes you sweat buckets which is good. Exercising makes obe hapoy and makes you glow naturally.

When Glutamax invited me over for their White Zumba Party of course I went!

There I was caught in the act !

WIWTD #39: Black Unicorn

black unicorn

And when you spiral through the atmosphere
All they see is motion
They never see the tears, they never feel the pain
black unicorn
They always think it’s nothing but it’s something, such a shame
So caught up in the fantasy, humanity has made a love story out of tragedy
But there is no romance in life that’s on the ledge
And there’s no one to talk you down and tuck you in the bed

Black Unicorn

Lord, it’s so ironic that it’s funny
Of something for the books or the bars
To bob your head and nod
I recall, so many never ever thought you’d make it
So sad they were mistaken, the joy they tried to take it

black unicorn

Black Unicorn

Mama said that “The best thing you can do and be is you. This world ain’t got but one, so give credit where it is due”
Ain’t that the truth
And here you are, a black unicorn
Mythical, mystical, since the day that you were born
Mastered all the madness, let the magic have his way
Let the power paint the day, let the god have his say
Cause there’s a place that you can go, no one else is allowed
Sitting up on your cloud, so high when you look down
Just glance upon the beauty and the wonder to be found
Then know that you can stop your search, cause love is all around – 2 Chainz
Black Unicorn

WIWTD #38: Mesh Around

While messing around and about was meant to cause havoc, I wore a white mesh dress to be comfy when I raid the racks of the first H&M store in the Philippines!

H&M Manila Philippines VIP Opening Night
Light, comfy, easy to put on and easy to take off. That was the plan. But of course I did not sacrfice fashion. Since mesh is just starting to make waves here in the Philippines after making waves in the Sping/Summer fashion week shows in London, New York and Paris!

My Viy: The Spirit of Evil Movie Review

Viy: The Spirit of Evil movie review

While religion is something most people clung into for some things they don’t know and cannot control. There is always a logical and scientific explanation to everything.

Viy: The Spirit of Evil movie review
I attended the advanced special screening of Viy: The Spirit of Evil in hopes that I will jump out of my seat and scream at the top of my lungs but surprisingly it did not.

It was not a bad thing though, the movie was very interesting that even though I had those moments I wanted to leave, I just can’t because I want to understand what was going on and find out what just happened, what was happening and why it happened.

While it was not that kind of shock and scare horror movie I am used to,  Viy: The Spirit of Evil  was a kind of a horrifying movie with real life fears and evils. The kind of evil that lurks in the real world that we are all prone to face from  day to day.

As for cinematography, the movie was well made.  It is the original movie shown in Russia and was dubbed in English. For someone who has seen it all this movie kinda made me feel like watching those Jackie Chan movies before like Drunker Master because of the dubbing but it was well-dubbed I must say.

It is best seen in 3D as those flying things will somehow get you jolt-off your seat thinking those things will hit you in the face. The graphic effects were awesome, fantastic and seamless, I love it! it will make you squirm it is mind-blowing!

Viy: The Spirit of Evil

Movie Backgrounder

It is record breaking movie inn Russia that made $17 million on its first weekend showing in that country. Viy is the name of a dark and notorious monster resposible for many deaths of many village folk in a sleepy 17th Century Village in Ukraine. Viy’s most terrifying ability is to murder and cut through the soul of any one with just a gaze of his many eyes.

Produced by Russian Film Group and Marins Group, Viy stars Jason Flemyng (seen in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and  Charles Dance (who plays Tywin Lannister in the Game of Thrones).

Viy: The Spirit of Evil is distributed internationally by Universal Pictures and will be shown in 3D in select theaters in Metro Manila and in 2D nationwide starting October 22, 2014.

But wait there’s more…..WIN an iPhone6!  

Watch Viy on October 22, sign your movie ticket printed name and signature, take a selfie with it and visit www.facebook.com/VIYSpiritkfEvilph upload your pic by following the steps to the “Watch and Win iPhone 6 promo logo”.

H&M Manila Philippines VIP Opening Night

H&M Philippines

The much talked about H&M Manila Philippines VIP Opening Night finally happened. Last night about 1,500 VIP guest were invited for an advanced shopping spree at the newest global fashion brand that is now available in the country!

I didn’t say a word about me going until the last minute because I was waiting for my “Golden Ticket” but apparently I didn’t get one. I have an e-invite to the shopping party so my ticket was face value!

I was one of the early birds so I was able to scale and scout the humongous red carpet area!

Almost everyone you need to know from the Philippines fashion, entertainment, media and PR industry was there. But the shopping frenzy was more crazy than people watching so you may bump into a lot but no guts to take pic. So here are just my rare photo moments with people haha!

H&M Manila shopping 20141015_204540

See something you like?  Go!  Public opening is on October 17, 2014 and early birds get voucher of Php6,000.00 for tge first 200 if I am not mistaken.

I was asked if it is worth it to line up as early as 6am for the opening on Saturday, I say yes with Php2,000 you can get a lot of nice pieces depending on what items you buy.  Basics starts at Php290.00 the highest I saw was Php2,090.00.  You can get a nice bag with nice quality for Php2,000.00 or a pair of boots then get a basic tshirt.

 

As for the quality, the ones I saw were good, fabric was nice and stitching was ok. I just hope in the next coming days and weeks and months of H&M Manila Philippines, the quality will not detiriorate just like some other popular global brands in Manila most of them sell rubbish now.

Thank you H&M for the advanced shopping opportunity! I will definitely comeback. Thank you foe the lovely presents as well!
