Hello! I’ve been logging in and out of the blog quite a lot these days, mostly because I work in between mom duties, household chores, and work for clients. But I’ve wanted to share about my favorite things from the past few months, so I hope it’s not too late to do that!
Things I’m loving lately are:
Bliss Milks by Juice Hut Manila. This is a collaboration I began with Mia Sison of Juice Hut, whom I approached one day with an idea to create some nutmilk flavors in my favorite colors, using some of my favorite foods. I had do idea that Mia would whip up some really beautiful concoctions, flavor-wise and in looks! The customized labels were designed by my dear sister-in-law Nica Cosio, and the copy provided in the information cards that go with the drinks was written by yours truly. These milks are truly a work of collaboration and love for all things healthy and pretty. Order your Bliss Milks through juicehutmanila.com or @juicehut_manila on Instagram.
Utility Pots from Craftsmith Living. I’m totally addicted to these ceramic pots! I currently have four and use them for everything from office and craft supplies, to beauty products on my dresser. I love its square shape, making it easy to place on a shelf or desk space. The simple design and inspiring graphics on each pot just gives me happy feelings all over. Available from @CraftsmithLiving on Instagram.
The Fuji X-A2. Ever since I started using this camera, I’ve had the easiest time! It’s convenient, lightweight, and its wifi feature conveniently lets me send photos from the camera straight to my iPhone or laptop. It’s revolutionizing the DSLR standard, making it easier for bloggers to get their photos to their plaftorms. Plus, it’s just pretty isn’t it? Available from authorized Fuji Film dealers worldwide.
Kikki.K Draw Cut Fold Craft Book. Vito received this as a gift from a good friend who was visiting from Melbourne, and it had him doing papercrafts for about three days straight. I love (worship, adore, venerate) anything from Kikki.K, so this also gives me loads of pleasure. Available at Kikki.K stockists worldwide.
Extraordinary Things Observers Journal by Chronicle Books. I love anything by Chronicle Books (my fave indie publishers), and when I came across this journal full of prompts, I fell in love with them even more! Not many of you know that I love to write on notebooks and journals (which I wrote about). This journal is great, because it provides inspiration on the spot. Prompts like “Write about the pen you are using to write this entry” or “find something pretty at home today and write about it” are so #makeitblissful, so about “finding the silver linings” and looking at things differently. Available at Chronicle Books and selected bookstores worldwide.
Layering scents with philosophy’s amazing grace. I’m a huge fan and regularly use the skincare brand philosophy (which I’ll write about more in another post!). Currently, I’m having a blast layering its signature fragrance, amazing grace. I’ve always loved the crisp yet girl scent, and I’m totally in love with its packaging and copy! I’ve used the bath gel & shampoo and the eau de toilette for some years now, but I was thrilled when philosophy Philippines brought in the refreshing Body Spritz! I use it as a light fragrance on regular days, but for days I’ll be out for a longer period of time, I use it as a base for the eau de toilette. I feel pretty and pink and positive each time! Available at philosophy.com and selected stockists worldwide.
