Kuppa Roastery & Cafe

Sunday morning brings me and Mickey to Kuppa in Bonifacio Global City.  It's a good thing that we came early.  I wanted to take pictures of the place in natural morning light and also without disturbing other diners.  The place was still empty when we arrived  (although I think, it would be a totally different scene on weekdays as Kuppa is located in the heart of BGC's business district).

What I love about Kuppa is that it is homey.  It certainly feels like you're just having breakfast at home with good music and a relaxing atmosphere to match.  I also love that they had a lot of up to date magazines in different areas of the dining area.

Let me show you the place:

Manila Bake by Serye Cafe Filipino

After Sunday brunch today, Mickey and I were finally able to satisfy our sweet tooth cravings at Manila Bake by Serye Cafe Filipino in Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City. 

In this modern day bake shop, you'll find local treats with a twist, fruit jelly spreads, freshly baked breads, pies, pastries and cakes to satisfy your sweet tooth or perhaps a snack craving.

Here's a tour of Manila Bake in photos:

Dedon Island

I've been falling in love with furniture that commune with nature.  I particularly like Dedon's new Swingrest by Daniel Pouzet, look how fun and pretty it is:

New Year, New Palette: Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura

I'm very picky when it comes to make-up palettes.  It takes one wrong color in the entire palette to put me off entirely (yes, that picky!).  There is one palette however that I am loving most recently - Karl Lagerfeld  for Shu Uemura's Prestigious Bordeaux eye and cheek palette with its wine and bronze tones.  I personally love the smokey eye look, and the highly pigmented glitter wine and deep brown shades (at the top of the palette) are just perfect for a new smokey eye look for 2013. 

The palette also includes a pale purple shade and a soft brown shade (that can be used as a base shade) and a brick gold eye shadow as well!  

There is also a coral rose blush shade in the palette (it's the one where "SUKL" is stamped).  It may be a bit of challenge to pick up with a fluffy brush though since it's in a tiny panBut overall, I love it!

Ciaté's Caviar Manicure has your nails covered for 2013!

I first read about Ciaté's Caviar Manicure in selfridges.com a few months ago.  I loved how their nail kits create three dimensional nails with the use of micro-pearls applied to glossy nails.  It instantly creates a beautiful effect.
