SALE REVIEW: The Unforgettable (?) Greenbelt Sale (June 21 - July 4, 2010)

Greenbelt is hosting its annual Unforgettable Greenbelt Sale which started last June 21 and will run until July 4, 2010.

Trying to save what little piece of my sanity I still had during lunchtime, I decided to check it out and see if this sale really lives up to its name.

Here are just a few of my observations:

1. Not all stores are on sale.  And if they were, they only offered a small selection on sale (with the exception of Mango).

2. As expected, most of the high end stores didn't even participate in the sale event.

Some of the stores that did participate were:
1. Bayo - had a small section for sale items.
2. Kashieca - same as Bayo.  Not much pickings.
3. Aldo - had a small sale selection as well.
4. Zara - same as the others.  In fact, now that I think about it, they had fewer sale offerings as compared to the rest.
5. Mango - denifitely on sale.  Although I've heard that all their stores are on sale now.

Was not really happy with this sale.  I wouldn't even classify it as "unforgettable".

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
