#WIWTD 40: Let It Find You

Let it find you

Hay, ang Christmas season parang Valentine’s day lang, lagi kang kinukurot at pinapaalalahanan laluna kung single ka parin or maging single forever lang ang choice mo.

Let it find you
Kaya ako, eto ang drama ko ngayon Pasko.

2014-12-22 14.59.47

My love
Where are you?
I’m falling so endlessly
Like I always do
My hollow heart

If you have love
Deep inside you
If you have love
Let it find you

One day
Will you see?
You throw away the memories
That hide away the truth
My hollow heart

If you have love
Deep inside you
If you want love
Let it find you

A Sweet Surprise for Shoppers at Landmark

It’s very stressful and exhausting shopping this Christmas because of the crowd, the never-ending list of things to buy and the frustration of needing to buy something that is no longer available.

I personally loathe the long lines and crowd so as much as possible I do my shopping during the dead hours of the day.  It is refreshing to know that some group tries to brighten-up someone’s day with a small gesture of singing for them happy Christmas tunes.

Just last week,  I witnessed some shoppers being sang to by Procter and Gamble CaLoLers, the expression on the shoppers face was priceless.  It was nice to see that some of the shoppers shook-off some shopping stresses they had for awhile.

Music and singing definitely is a great destresser.

I hope you all have a stress free Christmas!

The TOMS Story

TOMS was founded in 2006 when American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet.  Wanting to help, he created TOMS, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One.®

Realizing that One for One could serve other global needs, Blake launched TOMS Eyewear in 2011 to help restore sight to people in need with every purchase of TOMS Sunglasses and Optical frames. In 2014, TOMS Roasting Co. was launched with the mission to provide clean water to communities in need with the purchase of premium coffee.

TOMS is in business to help improve lives.  They identify a global need and create products to help address them.  This simple idea is what makes TOMS more than a company – it’s a movement that’s continually evolving.

TOMS is available at Megamall, Nothing But H2O and The Give Project.  Visit www.toms.com for more information.

What Makes A Philip Stein Watch Standout?

Did you know that a Philip Stein watch can help re-tune one’s mind and body into a state of harmony that brings about good outcomes in many areas of our lives?

Yes, a Philip Stein watch can do that through its proprietary Natural Frequency Technology, it helps in balancing the body’s flow of energy.

Carefully curated to fit any style or occasion, whether it’s an iconic everyday watch from the Signature collection or a stunning luxury timepiece from the Prestige collection, the brand ethos remains constant — to help wear, feel and live in tune.

What Makes A Philip Stein Watch Standout?
Philip Stein timepieces could be a perfect lifestyle accessory and a wonderful present during the holidays most especially to frequent travelers.

A Philip Stein watch is made to act like an antenna that picks up and channels natural frequencies that surround us, towards our bodies.  
The Natural Frequency Technology has become a sought-after feature found in no other brand but Philip Stein.

This is what Philip Stein, the luxury wellbeing brand, is all about. It can help re-tune one’s mind and body into a state of harmony that brings about good outcomes in many areas of our lives.

This technology has helped wearers cope with stress, maintain higher energy levels, and get better sleep.” said Will Stein, the man behind the brand.

Luxury is a very broad expression, and for Philip Stein, it’s not only the material part of the watch but the technology embedded in its DNA. This Christmas season is the perfect opportunity to share the gift of time that helps improve the quality of life. As Philip Stein puts it, true luxury is wellbeing.

Lacoste Polo Watch L.12.12. Manila Launch

2014-12-12 19.40.22

It seems we still have a slight hang-over from watching International Tennis Superstars play live in Manila for IPTL as the launch of the Lacoste Polo Watch L.12.12. was a tennis themed event. Everyone got to play tennis and compete with other guest via Wii!

Lacoste 12.12 Watch Launch Philippines
A makeshift tennis court greeted everyone promting a lot of photographs taken at the unique and fun backdrop.

Lacoste 12.12 Watch Launch Philippines
 

So you ask, what’s the significance of tennis to Lacoste Polo Watch L.12.12.?

Well, although it is iconic and recognizable, not many know the story behind the crocodile logo and the classic cotton petit pique poloshirt.

Lacoste L.12.12. watch
I never knew until today that that tennis legend Rene Lacoste designed the iconic shirt in 1927. And that the crocodile logo came after a crocodile bag he was given after winning a tennis match. The crocodile to signify his tenacity on the court.

Lacoste L.12.12. Watch Collection
Rene Lacoste created a uniform that would allow for better sweat absorption and freedom of movement. He named it L.12.12 – L for Lacoste, 1 for its one-of-a-kind fabric. 2 for its short sleeves, and 12 for the number of the final version of the design he selected for production. Heralding the birth of contemporary sportswear, the L.12.12 has remained a beloved wardrobe staple for the elegantly athletic.

Lacoste 12.12 Watch Launch Philippines
Today, Lacoste’s sporting spirit is reignited in the Lacoste.12.12 watch collection, with a timely launch on December 12, 2014 held by country distributor Artful Marketing, Inc. (a
subsidiary of the Lucerne Group) and global licensee Movado Group, Inc.

“Much like the classic polo shirt it is named after, the Lacoste.12.12 watch
embodies the brand’s rich history of designing crisp, elegant pieces, and we are really excited to be bringing its 2014 Holiday collection to Manila,” says Julian Addison, MGI President for Asia Pacific. “Filipinos seem to have a tasteful yet practical sense of aesthetics – values that are manifest in these timepieces.”

Lacoste 12.12 Watch Launch Philippines

The L.12.12. Watch collection is available in six confident colors; grey, red, blue, white, green and black which are the classic colors of the Lacoste Polo Shirt where the watch design come from. Intricate details such as the light airy pique fabric polo shirt’s unique signature is faithfully echoed on the watch by an attractive petit pique mesh effect running around the case sides and along the soft-touch silicone strap and the legendary green crocodile on the 3 o’clock position.

We were asked to pick a gift box from the Lacoste Christmas tree.  Each box is a picture of the L.12.12. watch that we get to take home!  Can you guess what color I got?

With blogger friends Jackie Go and Shai Lagarde after picking our box from the Lacoste tree.

I got the grey one! The only color I don't have in my watch collection before.

I got the grey one!  Actually the box I picked was white but I wanted a grey, so I switched with other attendees who wanted white.

The L.12.12. Watches are available at L Tlmestudio, Wristpod, select Chronos Boutiques, SM Department Stores, The Landmark and Robinson’s Department Stores.

How about you, which of the colors above you like best?

Skechers GoWalk But We Ran Event

IMG_20141120_122907

I was not expecting to have a heart-pumping, body-aching, run-around Landmark-Glorietta Amazing race kinda day to compete with my fellow mommy bloggers that day but that’s what happened.

We were invited at Skechers Glorietta to “Feel the Bounce” of the latest Skechers GoWalk 2. It started so relaxed with us having to look around the selection available at the store and pick our own pair.

I was torn between the pink and the navy blue Sketchers GoWalk 2 On-the-Go boat shoe type.

I was torn between the pink and the navy blue Sketchers GoWalk 2 On-the-Go boat shoe type.

Although we were advised to wear something sporty, I was thinking some jumping on a trampoline or a little jumping jacks and maybe Zumba. I was not expecting to run-around Landmark and Glorietta to find clues and do task and post on my Instagram while doing it.

I am not complaining though, it was a fun experience. We did not just test our running skills, but tested the comfort and ease of wearing the Sneakers GoWalk shoes!

Task 1, find something plush and soft at Landmark!

Find something that represents comfort: Something Plush = Pillow!

Task 2: Comfort food

So what I think of the Skechers GoWalk 2 shoes?

Having to really test the shoes limit was a fun experience and surprisingly despite all the running we did, my soles and feet did not ache at all. The shoes were so comfy its like walking/running on air. In fact the next day I was complaining of calves and thighs aching but not my feet!

So, if you like to run errands, like literally run, you might want to take a look at the latest Skechers GoWalk 2, they are actually made for walking but comfy enough for running. It cost nothing over Php3,800.00 a pair. Not bad!
