FAB FIND: Lite Brix

Like a lot of kiddoes, the Little Girl loves playing with Legos.  And although, she is isn't a Master Builder, she does so enjoy building and playing with those Disney Princess and Lego Friends sets (such an evil marketing ploy!!!).

We have since stopped adding on to her collection and vowed never to buy her another one (Lego or anything remotely similar again).  But when we stumbled upon this Lite Brix set, we just couldn't resist.

Hey!  But I do have an excuse a reason.  My saving grace lies on the fact that this set was on sale!  Was originally around S$20 plus, but was marked down to S$10 (approx Php340).  It was just too good of a deal to pass up!  ;)

So what exactly is it?  Developed and manufactured by the Cra-Z-Art company, Lite Brix functions similarly as Legos.  You have the blocks and you connect to form your sets/creations; but the main difference is, these bricks light up!

Each set comes with it's own battery pack and 2 flat square bricks which stores the led lights.

Unlighted, it looks just like an ordinary building set.

But turn on the lights and that's where the magic happens!

As you can see, these lights are extremely bright and they change colors too (feels like being in a disco.  Gosh I feel so old!).

As far as I can tell, Lite Brix sets catered to "little girls" comes with it's own figurine.  I did compare it to a Lego Friends figurine we have and I'll have to be honest, I still prefer Lego's -- mainly because theirs looks a little less plasticky and has a fuller shape (yes, I am not a fan of stick thin type figures).  READ: Lego's just seem to be better made, and with detachable rubber hair!.

The bricks themselves are ok.  Quality is fantastic!  No complaints here.

Hence, we move on to the next pressing question -- is it compatible with Lego pieces?  Yes.  See those 2 bottles on the counter?  They're from one of our Lego Friends sets and they fit perfectly!

 We The Little Girl is so lovin' this set!  Hope they release a build-able lamp soon!  It would be perfect as a table lamp!  :)

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.

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!  =)
