It's time to shift the spotlight to a new player in the indie fashion scene: Grubbies! It's not flashy or glamorous like the other brands that I've been writing about lately, but that's precisely the beauty of it. Grubbies, to put it simply, is a clothing line for busy women.
I find the concept intuitive. You ever have those moments when you just want to grab something comfortable and go? You don't want to dress up just going to the grocery, a hangout with friends, or to your workout. You just want something you can sweat in and still look presentable. You need play clothes.
And that's what Grubbies has - play clothes.
Because I'm shedding skin like a reptile, I have to miss two cool events that are happening this week. Go for me, will you? Then tell me all about it!

During the SuperSale Bazaar at Rockwell a couple of weeks back, I got a chance to chat with Sol of Digital Traincase about our favorite topics: makeup and nail polish! That aside, I find her to be one of the most inspiring businesswomen in the online beauty niche. Even with a hectic job at an international organization, she managed to start her online store selling NYX cosmetics, a venture which later on proved to be a major success. Even celebs like Pia Magalona buy from her!
So anyway, while I was at her booth at the bazaar, I was browsing for some NYX Girl Nail Polishes to buy. She said that she didn't like these polishes before, but the revamped version, which she has, really impressed her when her supplier offered her to try samples. That coming from a nail polish fanatic who has Dior, Chanel, and other expensive brands in her extensive collection, I was sold.
I got three NYX Girls Nail Polish bottles: Luscious Green, Fire Amber, and Pacific Blue. Did I say these are only P150 a pop? It's pricier than local drugstore brands, but I swear, the quality and finish is similar to high-end polishes! The formula is smooth, easy to apply, extremely pigmented, dries fast and has pretty good staying power. I've been wearing them for the past two weeks so I can say with conviction that they're awesome.
I tried Pacific Blue first.
Dear girls, here are a couple of press releases I thought you may be interested in. Love, Liz
