The New Tommy Hilfiger x Gigi Hadid Watch Collection

I am a fan of the Tommy Hilfiger brand way back when it wasn't available yet in the Philippines.  Each time we would travel abroad, I go online and search for the stores near the places we visit.  There was one Tommy Hilfiger store in Las Vegas where I literally spent half a day in the store, hoarding clothing, fashion accessories and their home items as well.  Yup, I'm that kind of a Tommy Hilfiger fan.

Can you just imagine my excitement when I got an invitation to the launch of the new Tommy Hilfiger x Gigi Hadid watch collection?  I let go of a short shriek when I got the invitation and had a smile on my face while I was reading the details of the event.  The theme was nautical and guests where asked to come in Nautical attire as well in signature Tommy Hilfiger colors of red, white and blue.

Liese Creamy Bubble Hair Color, Japan's No.1 Hair Color Brand, now in selected Watsons and SM Beauty stores!

I have to admit there were many times when I had to have my hair color done sooner than later because of hair (over) re-growth.  My hair would sometimes look like I had a mini-ombre hair dye process (even if I didn't).  But sometimes, I also have to tide it out, until my schedule will allow me to book an appointment in a salon.  Simply because it would mean allotting at least 3 hours of sitting in a chair until I get the final result.  Let alone driving, parking and going to salon for my appointment.

There were times when I wish there was a simpler, faster and easier way to apply hair dye (even if I have to do it myself), because this would mean I can spend more precious time with my husband, weekends are spent more for adventure and I would get more important things done.

Marriott Manila's Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony 2016

It was a magical evening of twinkling lights, Christmas carols in the air, as guests gathered around the Christmas tree sipping holiday drinks and feasting on gustatory delights to celebrate Marriott Manila's Annual Christmas Lighting Ceremony. 

These two are so cute, I couldn't help but take a photo with them!

A Special Dinner by Chef Billy King, Our Two-Bedroom Suite at The Manor at Camp John Hay and their Grand Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

Last weekend would have to be one of the best vacations we've ever had.  We were invited by The Manor at Camp John Hay to stay for 3 days and 2 nights in one of their spacious two bedroom suites.  It was a good weekend to go up to Baguio, the weather was good, there was no storm coming and the best part is that we just passed a long holiday weekend which meant travelling would be a breeze.  

We were in awe at the extent of the preparations for Christmas.  It starts as you enter the driveway, to the lobby, until the garden and even into the hallways of the rooms.  It was evident that there was no scrimping on the Christmas decorations all over the hotel.  It's still November but you can feel the Christmas spirit all over the property.
