Oh My Bag Base Shaper

Anyone who owns a Louis Vuitton Speedy or a bag of its kind can definitely relate to how I feel about getting my things organized without ruining its “signature form”. I’ve tried Oh My Bag’s Base Shaper and not only that they customize their shaper to the style and size of a Louis Vuitton Speedy, you also get to choose a color. I got myself a brown one which blends well with my purse.

The item is fairly priced for Php 200 and was sewn neatly.

Though I love how the products helped me in organizing my stuff, I still prefer using a pouch inside my purse rather than making it appear that it’s not authentic by adding a form. I am also afraid that the base shaper would ruin my bag in the long run because it’ll create edges at the bottom. Planning on trying out other items from Oh My Bag. I am sure they have an item suited for a consumer like me. I have others bags that need some TLC too. Thinking of buying a bag water protector for our summer getaway!

SM Shoepermodels Style Me

Being a super model-wanna-be when I was in my teenage years, it has always been Joey Mead-King who I look up to. Her fashion sense and wit never fail to amaze me. She’s probably one of the FEW celebrities that I would love to meet in person. Her love for cats also made me adore her more. Few weeks back, I saw Joey’s Instagram post about an online photo-liking contest sponsored by SM Shoe City. The lucky winner will be styled by Joey Mead-King and Amanda Griffin-Jacob and will also be given a shopping spree worth Php.20,000!


Geez. I told myself that I wouldn’t let this chance pass. So, I immediately scanned my photo gallery from my mobile phone in search for a decent photo that I can post for the contest. I wanted something that would show my whole body so Joey and Amanda wouldn’t have a hard time deciding on what to give me for the shoes and bag make-over. Sorry but yeah, I really assumed that I’ll win! 


thanks to our family and friends who helped me reach this number of likes!


My husband (Migs) is the sweetest by “forcing” his trainees and friends to like my IG photo.



It was an hour well spent with these two beautiful ladies. They asked me to fit shoes and walked around SM shoe city to look for the best bag. Their choices flattered me knowing that we have similar taste in fashion. LOL!

Tadaaa! This is me wearing the pair of shoes and bag that Joey and Amanda hand-picked for me.

dress: H&M, bag: Isaac Mizrahi, shoes: Via Uno

I will be posting more OOTDs wearing this pair and some items that I bought from SM using the GCs that I’ve won.


If you want to become as lucky as I am, follow Joey Mead-King (@joeymeadking) and Amanda Griffin-Jacob (amandagriffin_j) on Instagram! Joey recently posted a BTS for another #SMShoepermodelsStyleMe contest.

Good luck, ladies!

Much love,

Back to basics with Uniqlo

Hello, loves!




Ever since our first visit to Uniqlo (SM Aura) to buy a whole wardrobe for Migs, we can’t help but keep them in mind whenever we go shopping.





Migs wore his Uniqlo sweater when he performed last December at Republik Bar 

Last Sunday, while waiting for our movie to start, we strolled Mega Mall for some great finds and our feet lead us to Uniqlo. Uniqlo Mega Mall is as inviting as that of SM Aura’s. The shop was spacious and the lighting is perfect!






We checked out their under garment selection for some pairs of socks (we change socks every January and June of each year) and we were surprised when we saw the tag prices!5 pairs of socks for only P390.00! It was so affordable! 





Uniqlo do not put “loud” prints to their fabrics and everything are basics. Very classy. Their pieces are reminders of what every man and woman should have on their closest. 


You can find inside shirts (but can be worn as it is) for only Php 290.00, and basic tees for Php 590.
For yuppies, you’ll go crazy over different hues of office pants that you can take home for Php900 and above. 
For a more polished look, you can go for a coat that can be mixed and matched to any colors for only Php 2,990! 






For couples who are into matching clothes, Uniqlo is the perfect shop for you! You can match your clothes with your loved one without going over board with crazy prints. 



Happy shopping!

#OOTD

Hello,lovely people!

So,last December 23, I finally joined the bandwagon and posted my very first #OOTD on Instagram! Now, tell me if it’s a Nay or Yay! Hahahaha!
It’s a sweater weather! So, finding a nice sweater that suits well with a pair of shorts, jeans or even skirt is a must!

sweater and denim shorts from greenhills tiangge

I was wearing my Mizunos during our travel but changed to my now favorite pair of shoes, Palladium. It’s so comfy and can upgrade any dull outfit.



Travelling will take you some few side trips to souvenir stores or the nearest mall. So, better take a shopping bag with you.
I just love Long Champ’s Le Pliage! You can bring this anywhere even if you go on a back packing trip. It’s so light and fold-able! I’ve had this bag for almost a year and I am convinced to get another one with a different color.

Well, I hope you like this look! But whether or not you are in favor of me posting OOTD’s here on our blog…please let me know by leaving comment below!

Much love,

Throwback Thursday!


Hello, sweethearts!

I’m counting the days until our fourth year anniversary!


Our love story  began in August of 2009 when we were both trainees in a BPO company. October 16 of the same year, Migs held my hand. I didn’t flinch but just held his hands like we’ve been together for decades. Surprisingly…he popped “the question” on the same day. 

Thinking about his proposal still makes me feel giddy.

Here are photos from our Engagement shoot last year!





Our favorite photo! This is how we dress up when we used to go to work riding our bike (which we sold exactly 2 weeks before we came up with this concept! Haha!)
Leather Jackets from an online store, Migs’s jeans: Levi’s, Alaine’s jeans: SM Department store, Migs’ shoes: Timberland Alaine’s shoes: HK brand





Shoes: Mizuno and Vibram
Jackets: Puma.
We couldn’t find a women’s jacket with the same design so, we ended up buying the smallest men’s size jacket for me.




Dress and Head dress from Greenhills Tiangge, Migs’ long sleeves and pants: stafford rd./Bench,Migs’ shoes:GT-Hawkins Astronauts
shoes: Bandolino








Accessories: SM Department Store





Migs’ suit: Wharton, Alaine’s gown: rented.
 I  just love this gown’s back detail!



Four years down, a lifetime to go…


XOXO,

Alaine
