Wearing any kind of jewelry or accessory is a form of self-expression. To some culture, it is a symbol of one’s rituals, beliefs, values and ideas.
With or without pandemic, wearing accessories is something that you can always do even if you are just at the comforts of your home. There’s nothing wrong about looking good and feeling good about yourself through wearing jewelry pieces, may it be silver, gold, or diamond studded . Whatever you feel like wearing, go! and be confident about it.
Just recently, Uniqlo Philippines virtually launched their latest Fall/Winter collection featuring its LifeWear clothing line. This is very timely, considering the “new normal” that we are embracing right now.

This also includes our daily fashion.

Conceived thoughtfully with people’s changing needs in mind, LifeWear clothing features the highest-quality materials, modern elegant lines, and superior comfort which all aimed to provide ease when staying at home or doing daily tasks, to help stay stress-free when working, and to give support in keeping active and healthy.
Had my eyes on few pieces of the collection and here are my top 5.

On the other hand, men’s jackets for both casual and business occasions include parkas, classic tailored and corduroy items.

Down jackets are warm, functional, and stylish, and are continually evolving. UNIQLO introduces its line of Ultra Light Down jackets with witty prints and seasonal designs. New hues for women’s jackets include plum, green, and lemon-yellow. Hybrid down jackets on the other hand are a step beyond regular down outerwear and feature enhanced designs and functionality.

I am a person with a very simple taste in fashion. A blouse, polo, shirt, or denim jacket with simple inner blouse, cardigan, black leggings or denim pants, and white sneakers-These practically sums up my fashion style. I know what you are thinking. Those were very safe choices. Well it’s true.
The reason behind why I kept on choosing these fashion pieces above that I mentioned is just i’m quite hesitant to try out other styles. Or maybe i’m scared and not confident enough. For me, as long as I’m comfortable and look presentable- i’m ok with it. Please don’t think that I’m not interested in fashion. I’m very much into it(but it just doesn’t show hahahha) Actually, I love looking on OOTD photos online and how I wish I can wear those styles too.
But you know what? I realized that there’s more for me to explore when it comes to fashion. That I can express myself more on different styles. How I wish I have my personal styling guru so I can wear the right pieces and combinations. And so I found StyleGenie!, my fashion savior.
“YOUR PERSONAL STYLIST, JUST GOT DIGITAL! “
StyleGenie, founded in August 2016 by creative, fashion-forward women who are passionate about bringing an alternative way of shopping for clothes that serve all sizes, ages, and shapes. This fashion platform will match your style needs and wants and will be curated by experienced stylists! So, you’re definitely far from becoming a fashion don’t.
So… How I got styled up by StyleGenie? Here’s how it works.
STEP 1: Create your StyleGenie account and fill up your Style Profile.
I really like this feature of StyleGenie. In fairness, the site is really user-friendly. When you are creating your style profile, all you need to know is your exact body size, color, textile, and style preferences then just choose what’s fit for you. You can even upload a picture of your style preference and mention which part of your body that you want to emphasize and which ones you want to hide. (if there’s any)
STEP 2: Choose a StyleBox
You can choose from StyleGenie’s various styleboxes. They have “Style by Budget” options which are Lite Stylebox(Php999), Basic(Php1,999), Deluxe(Php2,999) and Premium(Php5,999). They also have other style boxes by suitable on specific occassions such as Business Smarts, Glam For A Date, Travel Fair, Family Celebrations, Life of the Party, and Insta OOTD- ALL priced at Php1,999!
For this part, I chose Insta OOTD style box where I will be getting two(2) fashion items and accessories. So exciting!
STEP 3: Add your order to cart, Pay for your order.
StyleGenie has different payment options that you can choose from. Please see photo above. I chose COD(Cash on delivery). Then after I placed my order, I received an order confirmation via email and then few days after, another email to inform me that my order is on its way for delivery.
To be honest, I was really anxious-excited on what will I receive, since I have no idea what would the StyleGenie expert stylist will choose for me based on the style preferences that I provided. I was really hoping that it would fit me well and the style will suit my taste. But just in case that I don’t like it, or it will not fit me, StyleGenie has a 14-day replacement guarantee.
STEP 4: Dress up!
So… my StyleGenie Insta OOTD Style box already arrived. I’ve got a white long shirt, a cullote pants, and a bracelet(please see photo to see the fashion items- purse, shades and sandals not included on the stylebox).
This personalized note also came with the box. I love it. My style genie even suggested what accessories and shoes should I wear to complete my OOTD look. Thank you so much for the suggestions. I really appreciate it.
Finally, I’m glad to share with you my StyleGenie Insta OOTD look! What do you think of this look?
At first I was hesitant to wear it because I need to tuck in the shirt to the pants. And usually, tucked-ins styles are a no no for me because it does not look good on me most of the time or maybe all the time hahaha!. But StyleGenie proved me wrong. What they provided me suited by body shape and I love it! This will definitely change my outlook of me wearing this kind of style. Thanks StyleGenie!

Wearing a perfume is like wearing accessories. When you are using one especially if the scent is really nice, it adds up to your overall image. I call it the “invisible fashion” one, because scent is not visible(obviously) and it can really drive attention from others just like wearing a gorgeous clothing. You may even get compliments for it.
Speaking of perfume and scents, just recently, I attended the launch of a new perfume brand, Scentsmith Perfumery, who just opened their very first branch located at 2nd Floor, Greenbelt 5, Makati.
“Scents actually have the power to evoke emotions and moments based on our individual experiences. Just like how fresh linen sheets smells of home or how wood is more masculine, every scent has a meaning for us. And that is what we want to bring through Scentsmith – an experience that goes beyond their sense of smell,” said Kristine Torres, brand manager of Scentsmith Perfumery.
Getting the right scent is not as easy as picking one off the shelves – there’s a science behind it that one must understand.
There is no signature more remarkable than a person’s scent – a sophisticated mixture of the explosion of the top notes, the subtlety of the mid notes, and the lingering presence of the base notes, all nuanced to a person’s lifestyle and skin acidity.
I did not know before that there is such a thing like “notes” when it comes to perfume. I usually smell and try it, if it smells good then it’s a go- if not, will look and try for another one- not knowing that there are these “notes” that you should consider. Hahaha! Now I know! Better late than never.
True to the origin of scenting, Scentsmith maintains a very transparent approach with its product line in simple, straightforward packaging, a clear list of its non-toxic ingredients, and basic no-frills bottles. The personal and homecare products of Scentsmith are formulated without parabens, SLES, phthalate, mineral oil, petroleum, paraffin, and DEA.
Inspired by how perfumeries were established in early times, Scentsmith uses amber-toned bottles to store its various product lines that ranges from fragrances, body care, hair care, and home products. I like how it looks, the amber-toned bottles makes the packaging appear elegant and high-end.
It’s not just the usual over-the-counter type of perfume that we usually see in mall kiosks. In Scentsmith Perfumery, when you order your preferred scent, that’s the only time that they will mix it- while you wait. Just a tip, when choosing your scent at the store, make sure that you spray it on your skin and do not just sniff from the tester bottle. The scent is different when sprayed on skin.
There is more to understand about scents and its power, just take for example the acidity of a person’s skin or the lifestyles that they live. The thing with scents is that it is easily affected by various elements like heat which can come from the body or the environment.
Here are my top 3 picks.
“Consumers these days are very conscious of what goes inside the products they use. But there are still a lot of people who do not understand how to get the proper scent that would suit their lifestyles best – a person who is exposed to high humidity cannot use the same perfume as someone who stays indoors the whole day,” said Abdon.
Aside from perfumes, Scentsmith also offers products intended for homes and offices. Scents play an equally important role in making spaces more livable – home become more homey, offices can become more professional or less intimidating, and beds can become more inviting. One of the quirkier products of Scentsmith Perfumery are the Loo Drops, primarily used to keep the bathroom smelling fresh despite the “incidents” that may have occurred(you know what i’m talking about-hahaha!).
Lastly, there are more Scentsmith products coming out soon that are already in the works such as essentials for travel, skin care, and fragrances for the car. Wow! excited to try them as well.
You better drop by at Scentsmith store now and experience how Scentsmith Perfumery redefines the art of scenting through their products. Who knows, you might find your preferred scent there not just for yourself but also for your home and office.

I admit, I am not a beach person (I am not saying that I totally hate it- it actually depends on the place haha!) BUT, that does not stop me from enjoying other things whenever i’m there. I love water activities such as snorkeling, island hopping, swimming(sometimes haha), and sight seeing just to mention a few.
Just like me, Reef, the industry leader in beach and surf footwear would like everyone to embrace the fun, freedom and spirit of the beach. And with that, they launched their new brand mantra… BEACH FREELY.
BEACH FREELY encourages everyone who steps into the sand or into Reef products to experience the beach in their own way – whether that’s surfing, barbecuing, swimming and enjoying other water sports – and take that fun spirit of the beach with them wherever they go.
With its pristine white sand beaches and surfing spots hailed around the globe as some of the world’s finest, the Philippines has a vibrant beach-loving and surfing community who were there to witness the launch of the campaign at Alabang Town Center. Featuring games, music and all the other things that makes beach parties memorable, Reef invited the crowd to get into the Breach Freely spirit.
The event also kicked off the launch of “Local’s Perspective” – the first Philippine Surf Book to be published. Created in collaboration with Reef’s long-time partner, My Life on Board, the book compiled the best surf images together with some of the finest wave chasers of our time, not only in the Philippines, but also across Asia – immortalizing those moments and telling the story of the history and culture of the locals who shaped the Asian surfing scene.
The book features images from the best surf photographers in Asia and Oceana like Giang Wardani from Batu Karas in West Java Indonesia, Bali based National Geographic photographer Tommy Schultz, Mentawai Island based surf photographer from Japan Hatsumi Ishibashi, World Longboard Championship Chaplain and photographer Andrew Carruthers from Australia and Siagrao based surf photographer Oliver Bayer.
It also highlights work from the Philippines’ own local surf photographers like Red Bull Ilume finalists and Sony World Photography National Award winner Gaps Sabuero, surf photographer from Samar Abdel Elecho, La Union based surfer and photographer Jeferson Ganuelas, Baler Based surf photographer JP Sarmiento and My Life on Board founder Mike Eijansantos. Mike was inspired to create this book because as he said, “Everything is digital already. So I want to create a book that immortalize the beauty of the images.”
Perfect for surfers who are feeling the heat this summer, Reef’s perforated boadshorts feature light breathable polyester fabric created from woven soluble yarn and have perforated holes allow for water and air to freely pass through the fabric, speeding up the dry time and enhancing breathability. Complete with a zipper closure back pocket, key loop and non-velcro fly make this perfect for surf or other high intensity water sport.
For the trendy beach-goer, Reef has created a slimmer, sleeker version of the ever-popular Fanning sandal. The Fanning Low has the same all-day comfort, arch support, and thirst quenching technology as the Fanning; but with slimmer straps and a lower side profile for a more youthful and fun vibe.
The Fanning Low has a super soft yet supportive EVA footbed, an airbag under the heel for even more support, and a rubber outsole for top of the line traction and durability – and it even has a bottle opener to ensure you are always able to quench your thirst! The new Fanning Low will be available in 6 six fun colors, right in time for one’s next beach adventure.
REEF on Environment and Social responsibility
The new mantra also lends itself to the Reef’s updated impact strategy to help keep beaches clean for everyone to enjoy. Environmental and social impact has been a priority for Reef since the company’s founding in 1984 and has continued to grow throughout the years through the global Reef WeHeart program.
Reef Marketing Supervisor Marnelli Gaerlan said that Reef aims to “…promote responsible travel by always seeing to it the [we] Reef always have the planet in mind.” She also encourages everyone to always plan beach trips with a conscience by enjoying the beauty of the ocean without leaving a trace.
Here in the Philippines, Reef continued to promote responsible travel and environmental conservation in Free the Sea Movement 2, a fun-filled three day event and coastal clean-up in Baler done in partnership with WWF Philippines. Reef pledges to support efforts to preserve and restore beaches so that everyone has the opportunity to Beach Freely.
Embrace the spirit of fun, freedom and the beach with Reef – for more updates on Beach Freely and Reef’s products and activities, follow www.facebook.com/reefphils/.
