Chanel Spring Summer 2011 Collection

I have been very open about my love for fashion. Sad to say, I only know minuscule things about it. A true fashion enthusiast, I believe, should know every prominent label in Milan, London, and New York. He/she should be adept in executing the current trends, e.g. the colors, textures, and designs for Spring Summer 2011. In this post, I will attempt to share the trend for S/S 2011 and perhaps give a few insights of what’s in store for next year’s fashion industry, well, according to Chanel.

Fashion ignoranti like me only know well a few fashion labels–most of the time, the popularly-used ones. Who has not heard of Chanel? This uber famous brand is founded by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel. It is recognized as the most established in haute couture, ready-to-wear clothes, handbags, perfumery, and cosmetics among others (Wikipedia, 2010). No wonder, every fashionista in the world worships Chanel.

Winter is almost over, and summer and spring are upcoming. What way to rock those seasons best but wear Chanel’s S/S 2011 collection. They are chic, some are cozy, elegant, and adventurous.

REVIEW: Pond’s Pure White with Activated Carbon

When I first saw this on TV, I snorted. I thought, wow, another marketing ploy to attract consumers. Activated carbon, really? I never knew much about chemistry, but I found it ridiculous splashing carbon all over your face. Yeah, that was exaggerated. Needless to say, I wasn’t excited to try it.

When the product was launched, free sachets were given out to MRT stations. This one lady was in a real hurry so she gave me tons of samples. And it so happened I had no more facial wash at home. Great, so I guess I have no choice but to try them then. Being a cautious consumer, I read the labels first.

CLAIMS:

  • Lifts away impurities
  • Helps cleanse face thoroughly
  • Reveals natural pure white skin

THE REAL SCORE:

All three claims are true. It does cleanse really well, I’ve been using it for over a month already. My skin has become noticeably clearer and fairer, too. The only problem is, and this is usually true for all Pond’s products (according to my experience at least), that though it cleanses thoroughly, facial skin tends to become dry in which one needs the use of a moisturizer after.

I am not allergic to any product (that’s a yay for me!), so I cannot assure that Pond’s Pure White with Activated Carbon is safe for everyone’s skin. Overall, the product is excellent. My friend and I actually buy bigger containers now. I recommended it to a neighbor, and she loved the results. 🙂

Preview Magazine Collection Starts NOW

Everyone close to me knows that I am so in love with fashion. It does not seem like it when I dress up on ordinary days, but my increasing number of fashion magazines at my dorm room is an attestation to my love for anything chic and glam. So last month, I bought my first ever Preview magazine. As the magazine’s tagline states, it is the best-selling fashion magazine in the Philippines. I don’t know if that is correct (like when all novels at bookstores boast that they are best-sellers), one thing I am sure of though is that Preview shouts FASHION from the cover to the inside pages.

My first Preview mag is that of Cristine Reyes on the cover. Cristine frequented men’s mags so it was quite a surprise (for her and for many of us) that Preview got her to do a cover shoot. Nevertheless, the Louis Vuittons she donned suited her. She looked very sophisticated and captured the vintage-nostalgic effect that Preview was going for (a lot of help came from the six-digit LV pieces and the cat’s eye make up, too). Steamy!


A Php 150 magazine is a little expensive for my heavily budgeted income, but hey, it’s a lot cheaper comparing to those adorable shoes I’ve been eyeing at Parisian. And so I bought my second Preview magazine with Solenn Heussaff on the cover. I never really fancied her beauty, but when I saw the Preview cover two days ago, she won me hands-down. Solenn is not your typical controversial celebrity; she is a fashion designer and a make-up artist at the same time. Whoa to that!

Aside from the gorgeous Tory Burch 2011 Resort Collection Solenn sported, Preview launched the first ever Augmented Reality issue. Curious? Just grab a copy of December 2010 issue of Preview, then go to http://www.stylebible.ph/preview_augmented_reality/. Btw, you must have a webcam, and you will be able to travel the world with Solenn. So cool!

Well, I cannot wait for the new year’s edition. Let’s all have a blast this Christmas. 🙂
