As I mentioned in my previous post, AVA is holding a pre-sale of Jeffrey Campbell shoes from July 8 to July 22. I'm happy enough to get a pair way before it hits the market, but imagine getting a pair for FREE?! 

Here's what you need... internet connection and LOTS of friends!

C'mon... I know you want it! Join now and start inviting your friends!

More JCs! @ Solestruck

I finally succumbed and got the Foxy in black kidskin leather. I'm not sure whether I'm really a 5 or 5.5 but I think I should get my next pair half a size bigger. But I was running around to so many events yesterday I didn't get a shot of my outfit.

Anyway, while we wait for the next batch of Jeffrey Campbells at SM Fashion Forum, you can also check out AVA in the coming weeks (see my previous post). Or if you can't wait, here's more JC shoes, this time at SOLESTRUCK.

I see some Prada-inspired brogues. And I see some designs I dunno if I can handle... 


What you think about this one?

I don't know what goes through JC's mind when he designs his shoes! But I guess it works!

Enough of Jeffrey Campbell for now. My budget can't handle it anymore...

Oh!!! I almost fainted when I got this in my email!

Gasp! I missed the last batch at SM Fashion Forum. We'll, I had to save money for our trip and decided not to get a pair - yet. But then, I tried the Foxy Wood this afternoon and wanted to kick myself for not ordering. Maybe the shoe gods were listening and gave me this chance to grab a pair of Jeffrey Campbell thru AVA. Now I can't wait for July!!!

Schu Closing Sale

I was running errands in Shangrila yesterday and passed by the Schu store. Apparently the branch is closing! Gosh, I'm not often in Shangrila, but I definitely go to Schu every time I'm there. 

I hope they're just moving to a different space or maybe to a different mall. Anyway, they have put everything on sale! As in, everything is P799!!! Yep, great deal right?! And I'm always up for great deals!

Some styles I saw on sale...

Many items on sale are from the recent collection. Of course, there are also those from several seasons ago.

If you've been eyeing a pair for quite sometime, this is your chance to grab it at a very good price. Sale is until July 31, 2011

I'm supposed to be done shopping for shoes but those boots and mules are calling me!

Tuesday, June 14, 2011


I just saw my Preview today. Love the feature on the Temptation Island but I love the spread on Vice Ganda the best! H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S! Inspired by previous decades icons Lucille Ball, Sonny and Cher, Madonna, and Courtney Love.


Photos taken from Preview site.

I've watched him/her in comedy clubs. I really think he's/she's really smart to be come up with witty remarks and punchlines. Super funny!

Juliet would love these!

I just came back from the US. I tried hard not to over indulge this time with shoes - since I'm really a shoe addict - I realized I ended up bringing home eight pairs of shoes. Most of which were bought to me by my mom and my aunts. These should have satisfied me for a few months right?!

And then, I come home and see this in my email...

Also available in black

And we all know how comfy Anthology shoes can be right?! I have two pairs to prove it. You can order these babies online.

Oh fair Verona! Why do you tempt me so!

Rediscovering Hard Candy

Walmart is the best! Cheap prices and it has almost everything! Aside from baby stuff (bottles, nipples and diapers), I usually get my make up fix there of brands I usually see in the Philippines like Maybelline, L'Oreal, Revlon and Covergirl. Since its about a hundred or a couple of hundred pesos cheaper. But yesterday, I was re-introduced to a brand I've almost forgotten exists - Hard Candy. I used to get the nail polish years ago since they were the only brand I knew that offered black, dark blue and green colored polish.

From nail polish, the brand has expanded to a full make up line. For the past ten years, it has been coming out with edgy, yet colorful products in the market.

Just Nails with Ring (you can actually use the rings)


Hide and Glow Cheek - Cheek Tint Duos ($6)

Fox in a Box - Bronzing Duos and Blushing Quads 

Glow All the Way - Skin Luminizer ($8)


Take Me Out Liner ($5)

Take Me Out Liner - Glitter

Take Me Out Liner - Molten Metal

Hot Smudge - Duos Smudge Shadows ($6)

Powder Keg - Loose Eyeshadow ($6)

Meteor Eyes - Baked Meteor Eyeshadow ($6)

Split Personality - Eye Color Duos ($5.48)


Painted Lady - Manic Shine, Intense Color ($4.66)

Lip Tattoo - Lip Stain and Breath Freshening Gloss ($6)

Glossaholic - Sequine Saturated Shine Lip Gloss

Visibly Wet - Glossy Lip Pencil ($6) - i bought three different shades!

Cheap and Cheerful right?! Too bad though it's not available in the Philippines, or at least I haven't seen them sold at the malls I go to. Tomorrow, another trip to Sephora.

Iconic Hello Kitty

Years ago MAC came out with a limited edition Hello Kitty collection. At Sephora I saw a whole cosmetic collection for Hello Kitty!

Packaging is cute... it's Hello Kitty, of course. Colors are bright and young...

Eyes: Say Hello Palettes

Memoirs of a Kitty (four eyeshadows and two blushes)

Happy Fun (four eyeshadows and four lipgloss)

Super Fun


Big Smile Gloss

Sweet Gloss

Apple Balm


Apple Cheeks

There's lots more in products like fragrance and accessories. Unbelievable right?! We really never outgrow Hello Kitty.

Feeling Sosyal!

After watching X-Men: First Class with my cousins today, we split up and went around the mall on our own. I ended up in Neiman Marcus. Guess what I did there?!

Tried on shoes I'd probably never get to buy even if they were on sale...

Prada patent leather flats


Jimmy Choo


my favorite, Balenciaga
(a kind reader pointed out this pair was a Balenciaga and not Marni as I previously posted.)

My thighs are seriously large on camera! And also in real life! Yuck!

Anyway, also tried Louboutin, Manolo, Lanvin, Chloe and Valentino but didn't get to take pictures.

I was in tears! This is my weakness... shoes!!! I think we're coming back tomorrow to check out other stuff. Lots of items on sale! Saw bags like Gucci and Marc Jacobs on discount. I did ask the SA for Mulberry but she said lots of people ask about it but they don't carry. I knew they didn't have it but no harm trying.

Oh Schu(cks)!

Something happened to my vanilla oxfords I got from Schu!!! So sad! I don't know if it was the change of weather from Canada to Texas that affected the leather...

Close up...

It was a bit cold in Canada and then super hot in Texas... maybe that's it. Still feel bad my shoes were really comfy and matched most of my outfits. Wonder if this can still be fixed????

Sephora + Monster Satchel

Sephora is always heaven for me. So many brands in just one store! Grabbed a few must-haves there while in Canada but still need to get some more things, will have to drop by again here in the US.

I ended up buying only two items coz my little boy was grabbing all the lipsticks and eyeshadows on display while screaming "Crayons! Crayons!". Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion and also Clinique Long Last Glosswear SPF15 in Fireberry. Both products I never see in the Phil. Well, there are sites selling Urban Decay but so expensive. Should get these too...

 Buxom lipgloss for the perfect pout!
dab a bit of this near the brow and above the apple of your cheek for highlight!

Nakakaloka talaga! And... my bro was toting this when he arrived to meet up with us here in Dallas!

my brother calls it a "monstrosity!"

It's my two-tone Cambridge ordered from ASOS. I had to explain to my mom what a satchel was but eventually she said she'll borrow it too. Yellow is her fave color! A-hah!

Joe Fresh Finds

We didn't go out much while in Canada. But because I was with my mom, we did go to the mall. When in Canada we stock up on MACs coz it's cheaper there, so that was our first stop. And then Sephora where I got some make up I couldn't get from the Phil (wait for next post). Also, made sure I checked out the stuff in Joe Fresh

Sneakers for CAN$16

our family friend got sandals for CAN$14 for our little boy 


awww... cute right?!

I didn't want to shop so much yet since we're still moving around. Got make up instead...

nail polish for 3 for CAN$10, cheek tint for CAN$6 and lip crayon for CAN$4. Should've gotten more lip crayon!!! It glides on nicely.

Off to the next state... Dallas! My Aunt says there's some good outlet stores there!
