Halloween Long Weekend - Trip to Nuvali and Paseo de Sta. Rosa

To start off my long weekend, decided to have a relaxation day.  Instead of Trick or Treat (Of course I'm too old for that!), or a Halloween costume party, I went shopping to some outlet stores.  Drove for an hour and a half to Nuvali and Paseo de Sta Rosa (Laguna Province).  I love going there because there are some good finds with such low low prices!  There are stores like Zara, Nike, Gap, Banana Republic, Aldo, Payless, Nine West, Marks & Spencer and more! Took photos just so you guys have an idea what I was talking about, hehe!  Enjoy pinkmates!

i'm so loving this architecture!

kois galore
other outlet stores
don't get deceived by this store, this is actually a zara outlet store, prices are more than half the price!

koi feeding is just relaxing, try it pinkmates!
i am so enjoying feeding the kois, they are just crazy for fish feeds!!!

my purchases are both versatile pieces that will not go out of style, if worn properly:
can be worn with a black shirt and great fab necklace and you're on the go!
very versatile vest, can be worn either jeans or simple cotton/linen pants, and the color is neutral can be paired with a bright colored polo underneath 

top: forever21
scarf and belt: topman

Pink Stripes and Sparkles

Off to watch a concert - Human League, Belinda Carlisle and Howard Jones.  It will be a reminiscent of 80s music. Decided to wear something pink and sparkling that reminds me of the 80s fashion. And of course since I'm in the 80s mode, I wore my red-orange lip colour from Nars in Heat Wave.

Love. Accessories.

Ever since I was a kid I was just addicted with accessories, either cocktail rings, bangles, necklaces or earrings, I just love all of them.  I love to collect!  So when I went to SM Department Store for What Women Want (WWW) and discovered Yhansy Accessories (Shangri-la Mall) I was just in heaven!  These stores are affordable yet uber fashionable accessories! I know some of you can relate how I feel when I got there and just wanted to buy the entire collection! Ahh! Just heaven!  Check out my new pieces, hope you'll love them as much as I did!

hmmm, just got this one, you'll never know when you'll wear them! I just love sparkly things!
this piece will definitely stand out if worn with a plain white shirt
great to wear underneath your crisp polo collar, this will definitely stand out from afar
this is a versatile piece, you can wear it as a bracelet, necklace, even as a headband!
plus, i just love this gold lion head accent!
of course i need to get a gold cuff, great to wear for this season!
i love the mix of orange and gold
i would definitely need this cocktail ring for my summer night outs
i've always been fascinated by angels, need to get these to add to my collection of angel wings accessories!

Coffee Extravaganzas and Inspirations

Being part of the marketing department is just awesome.  I get to be in the know at all times, knowing what's new and what's in trend in the marketing business. As part of my job, I need to keep on making events to promote the brand I am handling and in order to connect to potential clients.  Last weekend, even if there was a storm, nothing stopped me from hosting a coffee workshop for the brand I am handling, MIELE.  I called it MIELE GOURMET WEEKENDS PRESENTS: THE MIELE COFFEE EXPERIENCE, this is promoting the Miele Built-in Coffee Machine.  I would want to share through photos the sumptuous desserts we made during that weekend. 

Since there was an unexpected storm that Saturday, the guests arrived pretty late, so while waiting, I decided to practice my skills in photography.  Took color inspirations, ingredients to die for and all those sweet sweet temptations!

what i wore:
pink top & denim: dorothy perkins
flats: tommy hilfiger
salmon bangle: girl shoppe
teal belt: dorothy perkins


ingredients & desserts galore:
chocolate chip oatmeal cookies
