If you’re wondering what to get from the sale, here are my top 10 favorite Sephora finds that need a spot in your kit!Read More
My home and the Project Vanity HQ is stashed with bins and bins of beauty products. It can be quite a challenge to curate sometimes, but at the end of the day, it's what I pick up the most that makes it to my top ten! Seeing as it's Sephora PH site-wide sale season once more, I thought that I'd list down my HGs from the store. Hopefully this serves as a useful guide as you get your haul at 20% (for Gold and Black Members) and 15% (White) off until May 6. Let's go!Read More
I wanted to write this in paragraph form, but I thought it would be more fun to list it down! So, these are the reasons I'm selling some of my books.
- I love reading, but I live in a condo. Space is limited for books! (And shoes for that matter). I want to buy new titles and keep only those books I'm likely read again.
- I read most books only once. I don't remember every small detail about them, but each book will always be a part of me and how I view the world. That's all I want from books.
- I need more money to buy more shoes. (Kidding. Er.)
- These books need owners who will value them more than I do.
And these are the reasons you should buy these books:
- I bought all of them this year from Fully Booked. Many are new titles that I got as soon as they came out.
- They're crazy cheap.
- You need to support my shoe addiction. Because we're friends.
- I also need to give away some beauty/personal care stuff, so yeah, freebies for each purchase!
And here's what I have:
RESERVED Nina Garcia's The One Hundred. Originally P640, selling for P400. (Must have for fashionistas.)
RESERVED How To Walk In High Heels by Camilla Morton, P200. (Must have for women who want to develop class and grace, as well as the wonderful talent for walking in high heels.)
Heads up! I'd like to share the most interesting news I got in my inbox. ;) Enjoy.
Ensembles x Religioso
Ensembles has a new collection this September! It's designed by Choc and Yvette Religioso, the duo behind that luxe store in Greenbelt 5. The collection "embodies the stylish empowered woman of the new millennium, inspired by the genteel well-dressed women of the past. Each piece origininates from the classic button down shirt, given a dash of drama that is the signature of the line’s designers".
Here are my top three pieces! My favorite is this shirtdress. It's so moderno! I wonder if it comes in other colors.
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!
VMV Hypoallergenics will be having a Skin Soiree this Thursday, Sept 15, 2011 at the VMV Skin Research Center in 117 Carlos Palanca Street, Legaspi Village, Makati City. They've got free makeovers, freebies for your purchases plus discounts on VMV products, facials, and procedures. What's even better is we’re giving away full-sized Ooh-La-Lash!

Why you should go: FREE full-sized Ooh-La-Lash Mascaras! The Ooh-La-Lash is one of my fave mascaras, so if there's a chance you can get it for free, don't miss it!
Port 88: Ready, Set, SALE! will be held on September 17 & 18, 2011 at The Megatent Events Venue Ortigas from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Yesterday I came from a meeting in U.N. Avenue. That place is horrible! I spent two hours getting there, stuck in Osmena Highway traffic then in a minor flood in Paco. After the meeting, the avenue looked like a parking lot, so I had to walk to the LRT station (in the rain, at that) so I can get to Buendia in one piece. I haven't ridden that train in more than two years! Taft is a nightmare when it rains, and I know this because I spent four years of university there.
Okay, after writing that paragraph, I realized that I sound like a total prick. I'm usually not. But I hate commuting to somewhere unless I can get to it by cab in under 40 minutes. Yeah, me and everyone else.
ANYWAY! At least I managed to get to the Promod End of Season sale in Greenbelt 5 after that grueling experience! It officially starts today but the kind folks at Promod invited some bloggers and their top costumers to get first dibs on the merchandise last night. Needless to say, there was a palpable shopping frenzy in the air as everyone grabbed their favorite Promod pieces at 40-50% off.
There were a lot of great items going for P1,600 below. Staples like jeans and shorts were on sale (their jeans are awesome), as well as accent pieces and tops that are bound to liven up your wardrobe. Notables are the leather jackets that will certainly be useful in the upcoming rainy days, as well as the cute skirts and airy printed dresses that will be nice additions to your current outfit selections.
I SERIOUSLY NEED TO GO BACK FOR THIS SKIRT. PLEASE STILL BE AVAILABLE IN MY SIZE WHEN I RETURN. KTHNX. I'm hitting myself in the head for not getting this pronto, but I was hesitating because there wasn't a sale tag (even though it's in the sale rack)
Creamy white skirt with tan belt. Classic and will give you an instantly fresh look.
Heads up! SM Manila is having a grand accessories sale today. The event is called RED SALE. It will be held at the upper ground floor of SM Manila, today until June 26.

It's excellent time to stock up on scarves and hats now that the rainy season is here!
You should definitely visit if you're in the area. Check out the items on sale after the jump!
Girls who love drugstore beauty products (like me!) are sure to enjoy the deals at Robinsons' beauty fair called Tint. There's currently a month-long sale in participating brands. Makeup, skincare, and even fragrances can go up to 50% off! Maybelline and L'Oreal are on 20% and 15% off respectively.
The frequent 20% Maybelline sale is well underway! This is the best time to score top Maybelline products
Read on for more notable beauty deals and see what I actually bought! Warning: tons of photos and great deals ahead!

When I was younger, Christmas meant new clothes. That's not to say we don't buy any clothes before the holidays - it's just that my mom would always get me a new outfit for my school Christmas party (which my adolescent self was totes excited about) so that shopping trip is something I looked forward to every year.
Anyway, if you're looking for something to wear to the string of Christmas parties you're probably going to, or if you need a gift that looks more expensive than it isn't, I'd like to invite you to visit Robinsons Department Stores, particularly the Midtown branch. They're on a 50-70% off sale! Well, not everything is on sale, but you're bound to find good stuff there at great prices. Seriously, the stuff there are so affordable, especially the ones from the in-house brands!
Allow me to take you to a virtual tour of the department store in Ermita (my favorite Rob branch) and share my top finds.
Never Been Kissed is a brand for fashion-forward teens. It's got the latest stuff and at great prices too. That sheer knit top you see on the right? That's only P330. Most of the stuff here are under P500. The brand has nice skirts and tights; I bought a denim tulip skirt from here before for only P250.
Cute white cabaret dress
Fab has a more daring quality to the trendy clothes.
