Row 101 Summer Pop-Up 2017

Last week, I had the chance to get a sneak peek and participate in a fun shopping party together with other bloggers for this year's Row 101 Summer Pop-Up.  It will officially open on May 6 and 7, 2017 at Whitespace, Pasong Tamo, Makati City.  This year, over 40 brands of beauty, fashion, lifestyle and food will be participating.  Each booth has been carefully curated by the Row 101 Team.  Based on the sneak peek that we just had, there is surely something for everyone, some are cult favorites, others are new discoveries and there are also products for men as well.

Without further ado, here's a sneak peek at this year's Row 101 Summer Pop-Up.

   Shopping and having a wefie with Andy.

Custaroons By Gigi Gaerlan

The smell of freshly baked goodies are coming out of this luxurious box of Gigi Gaerlan's Custaroons.  I was thinking, if much effort is reflected in the packaging, then something really special must be inside it.  You might be asking, what are Custaroons?  It is a delicious dessert, the top layer is made of chewy macaroon and the bottom layer consists of a melt in your mouth flan made by passionate baker, Gigi Gaerlan.

Toast Asian Kitchen & Tasting Room

There is a new restaurant that has just opened at the Ayala Malls The 30th.  Toast Asian Kitchen and Tasting Room serves up Asian food with a unique twist and a modern touch.  Each dish is meticulously prepared by their chefs with premium ingredients that you'll surely savor in the food that they prepare.

In Toast's menu, you'll find unique Asian food combinations like the Gyozig (Japanese dumplings stuffed with sisig) and the Salted Egg Crème Brulee (a burst of sweet and salty in every spoonful).  For a true local touch, they also have their signature Vigan Longanisa Pasta (Fusilli pasta with garlicky tomato cream sauce topped with Authentic Vigan Longanisa).   

Thumbs up to these dishes we've tried at Toast Asian Kitchen & Tasting Room:

Never Stop Playing with the New Magnum Red Velvet and Magnum White Almond

Each time I feel like my day is getting a bit heavy because of "adulting" commitments, you would surely find me saying to a colleague, "you know what would be great to have right now?  A Magnum!"  She would agree and we would find ourselves trooping to the nearest convenience store to grab our favorite Magnum Ice Cream bars and the day would seem a bit lighter. 

It was so apt that with the new Magnum White Range, Magnum invites pleasure seekers to embrace the #NeverStopPlaying attitude, a reminder to have fun in everyday life, and it is also a delicious invitation to try Magnum's latest flavors - Magnum White Almond, the same decadent white chocolate ice cream bar we love, but with a fresh new look and the New Magnum Red Velvet, made with decadent red velvet ice cream, plus a rich cream cheese flavored swirl, and wrapped in an exclusive white Belgian chocolate. 

Magnum kicked off their latest campaign at the very posh and exclusive Manila House at Bonifacio Global City, with an exclusive collaboration featuring three designers whose names are synonymous to fun.
