H and M Basics

Selfie another. I went to H and M, Festival Mall just yesterday to buy some outfits for this scorching hot summer. Actually, I already have this shirt in maroon but I find it very light and comfortable to wear, so I got another one in light blue. 

H and M basics are cheap but really of high quality. I used to buy basic shirts from another brand but I've noticed that they easily wear out. I really am glad I've discovered these basic shirts from H and M. It's worth every penny. 

H and M Shoes

A pair of H and M shoes for today. This is actually my third pair of shoes from H and M. My first ever pair was a birthday present from my partner-in-crime. It was surprisingly comfortable so I got another pair.

I just paired it with my usual outfit when I went to a short trip to Clark, Pampanga. It's comfortable to wear. It didn't give me a hard time strolling the whole afternoon. I'm excited to wear the espadrilles that I got just the other day. It looks pretty and comfy too!

Hair Color and Treatment at Mars Hair and Salon Starmall Alabang

Today is salon day for me. After getting my police clearance, I headed to Mars Hair and Salon-Starmall Alabang right away to get my hair professionally colored. I personally prefer getting my hair colored professionally when I have the budget because whenever I dye my hair myself, it fades out easily and I never get the full coverage and results that I really wanted. 

Ricky is my favorite hairstylist in Mars Hair and Salon, Starmall Alabang. He is professional and he really knows what he's doing. Good thing he's here today to get my much needed hair fix. Initially, I wanted a hair color with 15-foil highlights but Ricky told me that it's not ideal for a rebonded hair so I just opted to have the Matrix color (red brown) with colorlast treatment. I went for a red brown color this time for a change. 

     Here's the result after almost 2 hours of waiting... 

I love my new hair color. It isn't too loud compared to my previous hair color. Job well done, Ricky! 

Havaianas for Summer

I'm so ready for summer. I know it's only January and I have 2 months to prepare but I just can't wait to hit the beach and get that sunkissed skin. In fact, due to my excitement, I already got myself this pair of Havaianas that's ideal for summer. 

Havaianas has an on going sale that's started last January 8, 2016 and will end on January 31, 2016. You still have a few days to do your shopping, guys! This pair originally was priced at P1095 but since it was on sale (40%), I only shelled out P657. 

And I got another pair in neon green to match with my green Longchamp Neo bag. The SA told me that some people find it uncomfortable to wear but in my opinion, it's more comfortable than the usual style. I guess, it really depends on the person wearing it. 

Benefit Party Poppers Makeup Set

Three Saturdays ago, I went to Benefit Cosmetics, Alabang Town Center to get my own Party Poppers makeup set. It is Benefit's advent calendar for 2015 that comprises 12 mini Benefit favorites to mark the 12 days of Christmas or 12 days of gorgeous as Benefit like to call it.

My hands were literally shaking (due to so much excitement) when I got my hands on my Party Poppers makeup set.

Hanley Sandals from Tres Shoes

Christmas came early this year. I just received a gorg pair of sandals that I have been eyeing for months now--- It is the Hanley sandals (P950) from Tres Shoes. 

My love bought this pair for me when Tres Shoes had a pop-up store at SM Clark, Pampanga just 3 weeks ago. It is one of the comfiest sandals I have ever had. I can walk for hours without even complaining. You just have to buy it to get my drift... ^.^ Plus, it goes well with any outfit especially with my basic uniform (white t-shirt and ripped jeans). I just hope they'd have a physical store in the near future 'cause I would like to hoard for more pairs!

Shopping at H and M Festival Mall

The shopaholic in me didn't stop me from going to the grand opening of H and M in Festival Mall. 

It was past 2 P.M when I got there. I wasn't able to get up early for the 11 A.M grand opening 'cause I was feeling kind of nauseous the night before. Anyway, the store was a wee bit crowded when I got in. 

There was a 40-50% discount to select items including the top I'm wearing on the photo above. The highwaist pants were not on sale but it's okay as it came with a very affordable price tag (P499). 

I really am happy that H and M finally has opened a branch near my place. Now, shopping just got a lot easier!
