I am not really fond of watching movies in cinemas most especially if it’s action. I rather download or get a copy of romantic movies from a friend and watch it during weekend on my bed with popcorn, some snacks plus blanket but I don’t know why did I immediately say yes to an invitation from a friend (Hazel Vinluan) for an exclusive movie screening in Powerplant Mall Cinema and that movie is War for the Planet of the Apes which I know in myself that it is an action, adventure and drama movie. Good thing I did the right choice to accept the invite because I really love the story though I wasn’t able to watch the first two installments. I can say that this movie is very intense and incredible and it blew me away.
The war of man versus ape continues to rage on as Mossimo, one of the country’s favorite casual wear brands, kicks off the Fall 2017 season with a capsule collection featuring its first collaboration with FOX International through Mossimo X War for the Planet of the Apes.
“Mossimo X War for the Planet of the Apes is a celebration of our partnership with FOX International and the first of many in our planned series of collaborations with popular stylists and big name brands,” shares Alex Bautista, Mossimo’s VP for Product. “With the Planet of the Apes franchise having created a cult following and being a box office success not only in Hollywood but around the world, we felt like the look and feel of the movie would greatly complement our upcoming Fall 2017 collection.”
The capsule collection features a line of comfy tees and pullovers, 100% cotton unisex tops, with eight graphic designs that continue to tell the tale of the ongoing battle between the humans and their primate counterparts. Poignant scenes and iconic, artful slogans from the movie are the highlights and will definitely catch the eyes of faithful Planet of the Apes fans and Mossimo aficionados alike.
Mossimo X War for the Planet of the Apes is also a perfect match to the brand’s Fall 2017 collections, aptly named “Jungle Book” and “Re-volution.” A fun update to safari-inspired clothing, the collections play around with earthy tones, black camou, and fatigue prints that are not only up to trend but also extremely comfortable and wearable. Pieces are still reminiscent of streetwear but offer that high street look and feel that avid Mossimo fans know and love.
“Our Fall 2017 collections, “Jungle Book” and “Re-volution” focus on items that are not traditional Mossimo apparel that have been offered before,” continues Bautista. “This is another experimental move that we feel will not only benefit the brand, but will further establish Mossimo as a flexible and relevant addition to your lifestyle.”
The new Mossimo X War for the Planet of the Apes collection will be available in select Mossimo stores this July 2017. For more information on Mossimo and their latest collections, you may follow Wear Mossimo on Facebook and @WearMossimo on Instagram.

Oppo have already partnered with America’s Next Top Model (ANTM) for Cycle 22 that aired in 2015, wherein contestants were given selfie challenges using the camera features, such as beautify, double exposure, and panorama.
“America’s Next Top model was a worldwide sensation that several countries had their own edition of the internationally renowned television contest. We are proud to be part of this show’s new Philippine edition,” said OPPO Philippines Brand Marketing Manager Stephen Cheng. “Like the brand’s collaboration with the team behind America’s Next Top Model, we hope to be just as successful here in the country.”

November 8, 2016 when OWNDAYS, one of the largest optical chains from Japan, launched another store at Estancia Mall. In attendance of Mr. Shuji Tanaka, the CEO of OWNDAYS, and Mr. Vohne Yao, Managing Director of Sungears Sales Inc., along with several VIP guests from the media.
During the launching event, I finally got to know more about the brand which is known for its quick “20-minute” processing time, 1,500 styles and “all-in-one” pricing system.
Starting from Php 2,900- Php 6,990 (lens included), the affordable yet high quality frames of OWNDAYS have gained huge local popularity leading to the opening of 8 locations as of the month. “We have hundreds of styles, but function is always at the heart of every pair,” shares Yao. “We have 20 brands under OWNDAYS, and each brand has its distinct characteristic.”
Reasons why OWNDAYS were game-changers in optical stores: Simple. OWNDAYS makes the price system simple and easy to understand – set prices include everything you need (frame + 1.60 to 1.67 high index aspheric/ultra thin lenses). Prices range from PHP 2,990 to PHP 6,990 and no additional fee for the aspheric/ultra thin lens regardless of the high grade.
Quick. Your time is important to OWNDAYS. Their practical knowledge, reliable skills and latest technology in retail optical lens edging enable them to complete your pair in as early as 20 minutes upon payment – except for special order lenses. OWNDAYS uses Nidek’s LE-1200, top-notch equipment from Japan, which offers faster grinding capabilities and results to a shorter cycle time and a high luster finish.
Valuable. OWNDAYS carries out research for enhanced functionality and quality on a daily basis with the aim of complying with the strict Japan Industrial Standards (JIS). Quality improvements and increased production efficiencies are achieved at overseas affiliated plants under the supervision of Japanese engineers. OWNDAYS lenses are aspheric/ultra thin and multi-coated equipped with UV, anti-reflective, scratch-resistant and water repellent coating. Aspheric/ultra thin lenses achieve less distortion and a thinner edge making your eyeglasses lighter and more comfortable.
Aside from offering more styles and higher quality, OWNDAYS provides in-store eye exams facilitated by their PRC Licensed Optometrists. They are also able to increase efficiency and improve patient care through their latest technology in electronic refraction.
A good pair of sneakers are a great investment nowadays since sneaker market is booming as you noticed. Before, It never came to a point of appreciation to sneakers because my eyes are only stick to heels but because of days that we feel quite lazy to dress up, sneakers were added on my go-to essentials and fashion rack. With just a basic clothing, you can now turn it into something satisfying. Talking about sneakers, just last week Sneaker Box Manila opens to the public at their first branch here in the country located at The Promenade Mall, Greenhills, San Juan City. Naming the brands they offer are Adidas, Nike, New Balance and Puma. Well all about the price range? Price ranges from 4k and above. Quite expensive but it’s worth the investment and I think it is reasonable because all their items are legit and imported.
What’s good thing with Sneaker Box Manila is you can actually have your desired shoes for pre-order and caters sizes up to 15. That’s a good news to those who have giant feet!
Aside from shoes, they also cater shirts, caps and socks from Happy Socks that you’ll definitely love.

Summer 2016 is officially on and I know that the usual outfit in our list every summer are tank tops, loose shirts, shorty shorts and romper but let me share with you another trend this summer.
Pants are not very common during summer but this time let me prove you wrong with the type of pants I’m wearing below. This post will definitely prove that pants is a must have!
This summer season is the perfect time to do experiments! The casual yet cool outfits has proven to be a wardrobe staple for summer. For my outfit, I opted to wear a see through off shoulder top so it would be more comfy to the feeling due to the weather and paired it with a candy colored trousers which is my current favorite. I know pants maybe a little bit tricky if you wanted a head turner or an on-point outfit but balancing must be the key point so you would be able to pull off this style. I never been a fan of pants but this trousers made me realized that I should because I feel relaxed all day long. To complete the summer look, flaunt your panama hats!
So there you have it, gotta keep your pants on this summer!
