Opening of Suiteblanco at SM Mall of Asia (May 15, 2014)

By Sally Mae   Posted at  Monday, June 09, 2014   Suiteblanco 2 comments
Almost a month ago, I had the privilege to be there at the opening day of a spanish clothing line in the Philippines, Suiteblanco at the Mall of Asia. It was all thanks to Fatima Rabago, spanish model/make up artist (who is the pretty wife of Hideo Muraoka by the way) who hosted a contest regarding the store. Luckily, I was chosen as her winner for the contest so that day, I get to shop items from Suiteblanco for free! I was there checking the stores along with the other winners when one by one the ambassadors (mainly models in the industry) came to shop as well. I got gorgeous items from my gift certificates, which was worth Php3000.00 and the bonus was the total price was also included for their 20% discount. So my shopping budget went up to Php3600! You will see the items that I bought as you get to the end of the post but for now, I'll give you a glimpse of what their shop offer.

This is how the store looks from the outside. Since it was opening day, there were a lot of people that went to the store to shop. My attention immediately caught this display given the lovely dress. I love how they styled it with the available heeled sandals. They even have a native looking bag that I really adore. Did I buy the dress? Check scroll up to the end for you to find out *wink*.

Suiteblanco staff even prepared these treats for shoppers. Those candies were really cute in the counter that I ended up getting some myself.

You were probably thinking that I ended up hoarding some of these lovelies. Unfortunately, I am really not into hi-cut bikinis so I was really sad to see the price and not able to buy at least a pair.

They also have pretty shoes/sandals in their collection. Personally, I like the two pairs placed in the third row.

 The staff gave me my GCs even if Fatima was not yet in the shop. So I was able to do my shopping ahead of her. It was still fun since when she arrived, we were able to chat for a while, gave me a little background of the shop (since she was from Spain) and let me do my shopping. We had a short chat again after I was done. She was really nice and it was actually my second time to see her in person.

These are some of the photos of their Accessories Section. I think the price range of these are roughly the same with Forever 21.

They have lots of clothes that are fit for office work that if I did not control myself, I might bought something aside from the amount that I could splurge that day.

Here's a photo of me and Fatima. She is really tall and pretty. I wish she would do a makeup workshop one day. I'll be happy to attend that if ever.

And here are the items that I bought from Suiteblanco! I didn't find my plain blanket so please bear with the printed bedsheet haha!

black sling bag/pouch - Php1199.00

set of earrings - Php349.00

headband - Php279.00

socks - Php149.00

floral dress - Php1699.00
Among the items that I got from Suiteblanco, I think this one is something that I am willing to purchase from my own pocket given the style and the quality of the dress. I'm still thinking when to wear this one though. Two planned trips are still coming up so hopefully I get to take photos wearing it and share with you my idea of styling it. Anyway I hope all of you had a very relaxing weekend. one more week and we all get to celebrate another occasion. Can't wait for Father's Day! Happy Monday to everyone!

Back to School!

By Sally Mae   Posted at  Tuesday, June 03, 2014   Sales and Promos No comments
Hello everyone! Most of the kids/students already started school (my sisters classes started yesterday) and I hope that  your young ones in the family are already good with their school things. We did our shopping early but there are still a lot of sales and promos in the mall so if you are not done with yours, then you might still get good deals.

I know it's been years since I had that feeling of getting excited due to start of classes but somehow, buying this black sling bag from Penshoppe last Friday made me look forward to Monday. It felt like I'm going to work with a new bag, which brought back feelings of being a student again. I am not really fond of big bags so I was happy with the size. It's enough to house all the things that I carry in the office. It can even fit those small multi-fold umbrellas that are now appearing again in different stores. It's original price is Php649.00 but I got it for Php519.00 because of the sale. Still within my budget so I'm happy.

It's weird that because of this purchase, I suddenly miss school and student life. If only I have enough money, I would have pursued another course or even a Masters degree. But maybe one day, when all my responsibilities at home are done, then I can do that eventually. Wish me luck guys? Have a great day!

Beach Outfit: Neon in the Water

By Sally Mae   Posted at  Saturday, May 17, 2014   St. Francis Square Mall No comments
Thanks to scheduled posts of Blogger, I am able to have an update today even if I am now with my friends enjoying the beach of Puerto Galera. Us girls have already planned this since we had dinner last April and we were all excited for the reason that this is our second outing prior to our first one last 2010. That was four years already! I miss this pretty girls since they were the ones who inspired me to travel more (even solo). They are a bunch of well-traveled girls and my list of visited places will look nothing compared to theirs. And I am totally happy to be reunited with them. I will post about our trip soon but for now, I'm sharing with you the beach outfit that I wore during our family reunion at Villa Malinao, Pansol, Laguna.

Remember my post about the swimsuits I bought from Nudo Swimwear (read here)?I decided to bring with me the Lime Royal pair. I knew that it would match the skater skirt that I recently bought from St. Francis Square Mall so it was the ensemble that I wore for the outing. And because I wanted to be matchy-matchy that day, I used my neon earrings from Forever 21 and these slippers from Nutmeg. And don't you just think that wearing my Ebi Chan half wig (Tokyo Posh) added that mermaid touch? Haha! Anyway I may not look as much as a mermaid but I still am happy with how the entire outfit came out in the photos. What do you guys think?

I hope you are all having a fun weekend. Have a great day!

Black and White Peep Toe Heels from Payless Shoe Source

By Sally Mae   Posted at  Friday, May 16, 2014   Shoe Collection: P1001 - P1500 No comments
I was doing my best not to buy shoes especially heeled ones this year, but then during one of those nights when I just browse my Instagram account nonstop, I saw this gorgeous pair from Payless Shoe Source account. I told myself to wait for few days, thinking that I might forget about buying it. Turned out that I was not able to resist it though haha! So here was my first shoe purchase for 2014: peep toe heels from Fioni line. Don't you just love the design? I can already imagine using it at work or even at a night out with friends. It only costs Php1250.00 by the way. 

And it is Friday again! I still can't believe that we are almost halfway of this year. There are still a lot of things in my list that I have to do and I hope I can manage to fulfill them before the year ends. Hopefully all things will work out eventually. I still have some few trips too so I'm also excited about them. Anyone one here who are still having summer escapade for May? A fun Friday to everyone!

Price: Php1250.00

Budget Outfit: Roses are Red

By Sally Mae   Posted at  Wednesday, May 14, 2014   Vente Shop 1 comment
top : 100 + pants : 375  = Budget Outfit: Php475.00! 

Summer has unleashed my love for colors and prints and I have been doing a lot of mixing and matching with the clothes that I bought for this quarter. For today, I decided to wear something with a garden feel: hence the roses on my top and the green colored pants. I even wore my flower earrings! Anyway, if you read my previous post, this is one of the Php100.00 tops I featured. I can still think of other bottoms I can match it with, the very reason why I love printed clothes. You can never run out of ideas as long as it has lots of colors on it. And since I am on a summer outing, I opted to use my ever reliable slippers from Payless Shoe Source. I'm actually almost using it everyday and I am just counting on the quality of this brand so I can use this pair for a long time. I know Payless Shoe Source will not disappoint.

I am again wearing my wig from Tokyo Posh and I think it was just a nice addition for that girly look given the vibe of my outfit. This is a half wig and again it is called Ebi Chan. And by the way, a friend of mine just bought one when she saw one of my outfit post wearing it! and I'm glad she was happy with her purchase. We will be using this on our all girls summer getaway this weekend so I'm really excited! I'll post photos soon so make sure to visit again. Have a great day!
