Summer Maxi Dress from Babo | Trendy, Long Dresses for Summer 2009

Maxi dresses are one of the trends this summer. After gaining popularity in the 70's, these long dresses have come back! I just bought my own last Saturday afternoon from Babo at Rockwell after attending a challenging Pulse yoga demo. What can I say? I so love my first ever maxi dress. It must have been the print and the simple style that caught my eyes.

graphic print, designs, lovely print

For P720, this maxi dress is cheap. I can already visualize myself wearing this on a hot day or during a beach party. A pair of flip flops or flat sandals complements a flowing, maxi dress any time of the day while a bejeweled or high-heeled sandals is a perfect match for the night.

When choosing maxi dresses, look for ones that fall just below your ankles. Keep in mind also that maxi dresses suit every height. It doesn't matter if you're tall or petite so long as the print (usually floral and graphic) complements your complexion well. To give you more inspiration, here are some nice maxi dresses I found online:


Aside from maxi dresses, Babo sells swim wears and other beach apparels. Their trendy pieces are unique and affordable, too. I can see myself going back to Babo soon. :)

Fashion and Beauty Bloggers' Tea Party at Greenwich-SM Megamall

Greenwich has recently changed its overall service and setting, with Team Manila having given its interiors a makeover. Also, from transacting everything on the counter, they now serve the customer's order to the table for a more personalized service. Good job! Several fashion and beauty bloggers, through the invitation of Lace Llanora of, got to experience this special Greenwich treat in the form of a fabulous tea party.


Greenwich Marketing Manager addressing the bloggers

'Twas an afternoon of bonding, chatter, fun and gastronomic delight over Greenwich food. Their lasagna is still the best in the metro and their Overloaded Extreme Cheese pizzas (in three varieties) are a winner. DJ Andi Manzano would later join us together with the production crew of Qtube. Yes, they covered our party for a future episode in Qtube. How cool is that?

Aside from the usual chikahan, there were some contests that tested our wits and confidence. Earth won the Toughest Fashion Experience Contest and yours truly bagged the Best Pose Award.


There was also a makeover courtesy of Anne the Lipstick Addict.

Fashion and beauty bloggers present took home some goodies courtesy of Greenwich (vanity kit), Startworks, Ipanema and Tough Jeans. The tea party organized by Lace (Thanks again!) was really a hit. I'm glad I came. :)

Affordable Hair Rebonding at Edwin's Salon and Spa

Last week, I had my hair rebonded for the reason that my recent haircut was a big fail. No, I don't have anything against the hair stylist who did my hair (he was really nice!), it's just that I found the haircut quite hard to maintain. The solution I thought of? Get a hair rebond package. And I did. At Edwin's Salon & Spa on Evangelista Street in Makati City.

Edwin's Salon has been my salon of choice because I like their service. I've been a semi-regular customer for the past two years now. A friend recommended it to me during the time when I was in panic as to what I should do with my very problematic hair.

Hair rebonding, another term for hair straightening widely used in Southeast Asia, is a treatment that involves the use of hair iron and certain chemical relaxers to straighten hair and give it a smooth and sleek appearance. When I got a hair rebond package from Edwin's Salon, I was charged P2,000 (hair rebond + hair spa). I find it very affordable as other salons charge way higher than that. In fact, when I had my short hair checked at a quite popular salon for a possible hair rebond, I got a whopping P4,500 as price estimate. The said amount excluded the hair treatment needed to make sure my hair is smooth and shiny after the rebond. Ouch.

Anyway, the entire hair rebonding process took almost four hours. According to one of the staff, the hair rebond process has recently been shortened due to some development.

Aside from its cheap hair rebonding, Edwin's Salon offers haircut, eye lash extension, body waxing, body tattoo, make-up, manicure and pedicure, various hair treatments (e.g. hair rebonding, hair relax, hair coloring, hot oil, hair spa, cellophane, etc.) and spa treatments (e.g. aromatherapy, foot and hand spa, body scrub, etc.) at friendly prices.

The good thing about this salon is that it accepts payment through credit card. I was broke that time and I only depended on my credit card for survival (okay, I'm exaggerating). But yes, I really paid through credit card because my cash wasn't enough. Convenient, noh?

Also, the staff at Edwin's Salon and Spa are well-trained and friendly and therefore, tip-worthy.
