Attention ladies!

I have a few exciting news for everyone!


School of Satchel X KaEskwela
The School of Satchel (S.O.S), a Filipino leather goods brand, is known for its hand-crafted leather satchels made from genuine cow hide. Its products are manufactured locally, aiming to support the leather industry in the Philippines. Currently, it launched the 'S.O.S PLEDGES' in partnership with KaEskwela Inc. 

KaEskwela ( means "schoolmate" in Filipino. The organization volunteers believe that education is the foundation of building better lives and nations.

This brand-foundation collaboration promises to give a school bag to a KaEskwela beneficiary for every purchase from S.O.S' new premium collection. This project will provide many bags for public school students to help equip them with the necessary educational tools for their future.

The School of Satchel can be purchased online via http://theschoolofsatchel.multiply.comAlso available at Heima Stores (N. Garcia, Makati and Cubao Expo), Analog Soul Trinoma, Vanity Without Apology (Pop Culture, Alabang Town Center), and Spruce (Limketkai Mall, Cagayan de Oro).

One of my favorite bloggers, Eunicena owns a clothing (Vnaltik) and awesome accessories (E!) line that I genuinely adore. She has come up with a t-shirt line called "To The Same Beat" to help her friend's heart operation. Now they are also extending this campaign to help more people in need and I admire her for that. 

The shirt looks coooolbeanzz so I say, you go get one nooow.

Generation Next Grand Finale
So who will win this reality search for the next Mega Fashion Crew? We'll find out on October 18! Honestly, I wish everyone the best of luck! 

ETC's Gossip Girl and New Girl
I love ETC's line up of shows! I watch ANTM, Vampire Diaries, Rachel Zoe Project, Glee, House of Glam, even TMZ and Insider. I'm dead tired of Filipino telenovelas from the other stations that seem to have the same plot, same kind of characters and even same killing / death scenes.

As of now I'm hooked on the latest season of Gossip Girl. I've watched it from the very beginning and even though I'm not a big Chuck-Blair love team fan, I think they are meant for each other. Chuck has truly changed, he now cries (unlike being a stone cold rich dude) and he gave up happiness for the girl he ever loved. So what will the ending to this fairytale be? You have to watch! 

I'm a big fan of Zooey Deschanel since I watched the film 500 Days of Summer. I fell in love with her vintage-classic beauty (and sorta Katy Perry look-alike, haha). And so, when I found out she's having a series I couldn't wait to check it out. This advertisement is late, and just so you know, it started airing last October 8. So far, after three episodes in, this comedy-series rates a B+. Her character Jess, is a lovable singing dork but I personally think the writers can improve and work on funnier punch lines. But nonetheless, it's Zooey so I could care less about the script, haha. I can't wait for sparks to fly between Jess and one of her roomies!
