Promod End of Season SALE

If there’s one thing I love, its a big sale at my favorite, go-to store (Promod). Since becoming a mom, I’ve learned to be smart about money, so I try to avoid making purchases when they’re not yet on sale (unless, of course, I fall completely in love with it). Which is why I look forward to sale season because then I can maximize my money and buy so much more than I would if everything were regular price.


Now is actually the best time to shop, because most of the items for sale are from the spring collection. Which means there are plenty of printed bright tops and dresses to choose from and they are warm enough to wear the whole year round. Yay to our tropical weather!


When I shop, I am always on the lookout for closet staples I can wear over and over again and mix and match with my wardrobe. These are classic designs that stand the test of time, and can be worn in more ways than one (nope, I’m not the the type to wear an outfit only once–each item has to be super versatile).


But when I see a standout print or color that is in trend, I make sure to snap it up too (if the price is right). Adding a few trendy pieces is the best way to update your wardrobe. Also, be on the lookout for great accessories like scarves or earrings–they can instantly add style to your outfits!

To those of you looking for a good deal, PROMOD is currently having their End of Season SALE!!! I went last week and found so many cute outfits that all pass my criteria–they are wearable but stylish, versatile, and figure-flattering. Super winner! ❤️

If you love anything homegrown and local, this is definitely THE PLACE for you to shop. POP by Retail Lab is a shopaholic’s paradise! It is a great place to discover and support local brands–there are just so many amazing finds here and I assure you, you will never run out of things to buy.

I was planning to drop by to check it out and ended up spending nearly two hours here (and I didn’t even feel the time pass by). What a fun, cool place to shop! ❤

Into the Blue

       

I was onboard a yacht recently for a new project I am working on (I’ll be announcing it very soon) and absolutely loved being at sea. I haven’t gone to the beach in awhile so this was definitely a treat for someone as seawater-deprived as myself. I wore my favorite blue dress from H&M and felt as calm and peaceful as the ocean before me. I paired it with leather sandals from Annie & Lori (available at POP Retail Store in Glorietta 3) and earrings from H&M. ❤

SM Style Series x L’Officiel: #LoveYourSummerStyle

The last installment of #SMStyleSeries is the one to beat, as it featured the one and only super stylist to the stars and L’Officiel’s Editor-in-Chief, Pam Quinones. I worked with Pam during one of her first shoots for Chalk waaaaay back when I was just starting out as a model and I have to say, she was just as stylish back then as she is now. Her sense of fashion is incredible, and just being around her made me feel cool by association haha. It was definitely great seeing her again and felt awesome to be around super creative people.

I had the best time. It was a fun-filled afternoon of fashion, styling and believe it or not, a live shoot with amazing lens woman Shaira Luna. To all aspiring fashion stylists, well, this the event you need to go to (it’s free). Lets watch out for the next batch of #SMStyleSeries, which I am pretty sure will be happening soon! ❤

 

 

Georgina Sasha BAEsic Halter Swimwear

I am super thrilled about this collaboration with online clothing site: GEORGINA SASHA. We recently did a shoot to feature her new BAEsic Halter swimsuits (available in Rose Quartz and Serenity) and I love how it came out. ❤ You can order these on the site (its http://www.georginasasha.com) and even have them customized (you can add text, an emoji or your signature on any part of the swimsuit). These are super fun, and so flattering. They are definitely a must-have this summer!

H&M is now open in Vista Mall, Sta Rosa

For those of you who live in the South (like Sta. Rosa area), good news: H&M is now open in Vista Mall! I checked out the opening a week ago and had the best time shopping (as usual). I found easy, breezy basics and some amazing trendy pieces to add to my closet and got them at a super good deal (store openings ALWAYS have great deals). Welcome to the neighborhood, H&M!!! ❤
