sanuk debuts yoga mat sandals at beyond yoga


SANUK YOGA SLINGS: YOUR OHMMM AWAY FROM HOME.

Pretty cute and catchy eh? But that is exactly what Sanuk's new Yoga Mat Collection sandals deliver as I learned yesterday from its exclusive launch at Beyond Yoga, The Fort.

True to Sanuk's philosophy of combining comfort with fun, the event's theme revolved around anti-gravity yoga and it's co-relation with their newest release, the Yoga Sling sandals.

Unlike traditional versions of yoga where practitioners are relegated to slow, steady floor work, anti-gravity yoga has people hanging from cloth slings that reach down from the ceiling. Poses are done while relying on the sling to ease your body into them, allowing you to lean, swing, and even invert yourself on the way to exercise and relaxation. There’s zero compression thanks to the sling, and you’ll be “ooh”-ing and “ahh”-ing as you sway weightlessly in the air – just like a walk in the Sanuk Yoga Slings.

Sanuk's Yoga Slings are the most comfortable pair of sandals I've ever tried on and I am absolutely smitten with my black pair, no bias. :) The yoga mat sole is soft and bouncy while the straps are strategically placed in such a way that it covers the veins and other unsightly areas of my feet. They also don't chafe even after hours of walking. Add to that the fact that they are vegan and vegetarian, Sanuk's Yoga Slings truly say "Namaste" to style, form, function and fun!

shopping outfit

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

I had a pretty full day yesterday of running around, shopping and fulfilling some obligations at the mall. Whenever my venture out entails a lot of trips to the fitting room and tons of outfits, I make it a point to wear clothes that are comfortable and easy to slip on and off.

When I was a kid, I never really used to play with Barbies cause her super tight clothes frustrated me and I always ended up ripping them apart especially when I get to her hip area. I guess the same still holds true today.

To make shopping easier and more hassle-free, I make it a point to:
  • wear loose, garterized bottoms like these chevron skorts
  • no buttons or zippers on my top
  • flat shoes that are easy to slip on and off
  • sling bag for hands-free mobility

clipper lighters now in philippines

I always get my disposable lighters stolen by friends. It's not that I have bad friends, it's just a force of habit I guess. I sometimes do the same thing without thinking. Almost all disposable lighters have an identical appearance, cost practically nothing which I think give them the  license to be "stolen". Although we don't chastise each other for our stealing habits, finding myself lighter-less the morning after never fails to get on my nerves. I don't know about you but I like lighting up first thing and I HATE to have to trek to the stove each time to do it.

Which is why I have been contemplating on getting a refillable lighter for awhile now and it is just pure kismet that Clipper has finally arrived in the Philippines.

I prefer Clipper because:

  • they are pretty affordable yet durable unlike those "fancy refillable lighters" that conk out after a week, (you know which ones I'm talking about)
  • they have safety child-proof features
  • my friends won't see it as fair-game to steal
  • cool designs like these:

Yea, I really really want one. I'm liking those monster-ish designs although I wouldn't mind getting one with Tupac's caricature emblazoned on the front like bad gal Ri-ri's.

Clipper Lighters are available in the Philippines through Mini Stop Convenience Stores, Fuma Tobacco Retailers and coming soon to all major supermarkets and convenience stores nationwide.

DIY: distressed denim tutorial

Monday, July 29, 2013

You may have noticed the big come back that distressed denim has been enjoying on the street style scene lately. Numerous designers have created gorgeous numbers featuring tattered jeans in all shapes and sizes. But like everything designer, it also comes with a hefty price tag. And besides, why pay a small fortune for something that already looks old when you can easily re-create the look with a few basic tools at home.

For those of you wanting to try to rock the look, here's a simple DIY for you all wherein I teach you how to distress your denims whilest leaving the "white" (threads on secondary layer) in.

For this DIY you will need:
  • old denims
  • scissors
  • tweezers
  • pumice stone/sandpaper
  • razor
  • pen


Procedure:

Put on your jeans and roughly mark where you want to concetrate the "distressing" portions:
Snip.
 Keep on snipping horizontal cuts until you're happy with the size. Keep it small at first since you can always easily enlarge them later on. Better to be safe than sorry.
 With your tweezers, start pulling away the vertically weaved blue threads:
 The first thread is always the hardest to pull out but after some time, it gets quite easy and admittedly very addicting (ended up doing this to 4 pairs in one afternoon). Continue pulling out those blue threads from end to end of your cut until you're left with something like this:
 For a more natural looking distressed effect, rub your razor around the edges and use your pumice stone or sand paper to rub down your entire jean (if it still isnt faded enough for you)
 For additional accents, you can also cut tiny holes in with your scissors like the ones you see in the photo below. Last step would be to put it in the wash.
And you're done!

Some things to remember:
  1. Jeans with a lot of stretch to it are more difficult to distress in this manner. The nylon stretch fibers incorporated into the weave make it difficult to pull the blue thread out. It takes much longer although it is still doable.
  2. For simple, straight forward snips around the knee area, just cut with scissors and stick in wash.
  3. To achieve an authentic distressed look on cuffs and pockets, snip away a minute portion of the edges with scissors then rub raw edges with your razor. (let me know if you have trouble following this step so I can do another dedicated tutorial for it)
There you have it! Hope you find this tutorial useful. For more DIY projects, just click on the "DIY Tab" above.
