GPB11: Artwine

NOTE:  The Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011 (GPB11) series is a number of posts regarding merchants and sellers; and their unique and unusual creations, of which I had the utmost pleasure of discovering at Yabang Pinoy's Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011 (read a short introduction of my bazaar experience here.)  J

Book lovers are also bookmark aficionadoes.  It simply goes hand-in-hand.  Since a novel has around a hundred to 300 pages on average, sturdy place holder is a must whether one is cozy at home or out and about in the great outdoors.

Going to tiangges, malls or bookstores, my eyes are always peeled open for new and interesting bookmark designs.  You see, the usual paper/cardboard-holder-placed-in-between-pages is so pass√©.  It gets boring at times.

But lookie at what I discovered at the Global Pinoy apple elastic bookmark from Artwine!

Apple elastic bookmark from Artwine

Made from felt and a thick elastic band, this cute bookmark, selling for Php120, is just the thing I need for my reading sprees.  Just look at how perfectly it keeps my place!


*A warning, though.  The elastic band may be a little tight and may distort pages of thin and some softbound books.  So test it out on your novel first before using.  You wouldn't want it damaging your babies, right?  J

And between you and me, I also found this thing quite useful as a temporary hairband the Little One.  Sorry, I just couldn't resist.

Ain't she a cutie patootie?  J
(To be used on small heads only, lest you suffer from a one major cranky baby.)

Below are some other Artwine products that also caught my eye (photos taken from the Artwine website).

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!  =)
