Peanuts Archer Case from typo Singapore (and Of Other Things)

Cotton On may not make it to my list of favorite clothing brands of all time, but you can definitely count me as a fan of their stationary store equivalent -- typo.

Peanuts archer case from typo

It's an obsession really, as I just have to drop by a typo store in Singapore whenever I find myself near the vicinity of one.  And my latest fave find?  This Peanuts archer case which I got for S$11.95 (or Php399 as indicated in the tag.)

May typo na ba sa Pinas?  J
 
So cute!  Has 2 pockets and is roomy enough for cramming in tons of knickknacks.  Simply a store after my own heart.  *sigh*

And in other news, just read from Chuvaness.com that H&M will be opening their doors in the Philippines next year (2014)!

And if reports are true, they'll be occupying 3 glorious floors at the new Megamall Annex C.  Oh joy!  I do hope their sales will be as great as the ones they have in Singapore (I mentioned in previous posts that we are able to purchase shirts for the Little One here for as low as S$3.00/Php102.00* during sales.  While adult dresses can come as cheap as S$5.00/Php165.00*!!!).

With the coming of H&M, will another Swedish brand -- Ikea -- be the next one to enter the Philippine market soon?  There are rumors, though, but I guess only time will tell.  J

*S$1 = Php34

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!  =)
