Welcoming the eleventh month of the year with a trip to my salon, Design Studio for that much needed hair treatment and trim. Always a must after every trip especially if we came from the beach so my hair gets the care it needs. Look for Barbie when you visit Design Studio, she does my hair!
After my Design Studio appointment, I went straight to Lady Scott Jones in Powerplant Mall to support the collaboration between Herman & Co. and Xandra Rocha Araneta. Lovely collection using weave fabrics locally made. So yes to supporting local!
After the popup shopping, I went straight to Marie France in Makati. Here I was with the Marie France women along with Marie France endorser Dawn Zulueta-Lagdameo.
Here I was with Amanda Griffin-Jacob, Mika Martinez, and the newest Marie France momma, Miriam Quiambao. We’re all moms who Marie France!
Truth be told no matter how much I workout nor be mindful with what I eat, I’ve always had my ever so stubborn “mommy pouch” aka puson ? and I’ve had it even before I was married and had my kids. I know genetic plays a role in how my body is and so is aging. So a little help from Marie France is always a good idea.

This week, My husband Jago & I also celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. It was so hard for me to think of a gift to give him because I think I couldn’t top the gift I gave him last year (after all it was our 10th wedding anniversary then). I think we’ve come to the point where we’d rather travel and see more places we’ve never been to than buy material things. Unfortunately as much as I wanted to sweep him off off work for a quick getaway, I couldn’t. So I had to settle for something tangible. Thankfully, I remember he was also interested in Seiko watches. Remembering my co-parent, Rai Dy who opened their newest Seiko store in SM Aura, I immediately went there to check out what’s available. Also, I got help from Non, who I climbed Mt. Pico with back in 2016, on what Seiko watch to get because he’s such a collector (check his Instagram @nonkingbeef to see arm candies!). Eventually, I decided to get a classic Seiko Sports 5. This was the one in blue that I was choosing between. Follow Seiko Philippines to get updates if you’re a Seiko fan. Thanks again Rai & Non for the assist!
Ending the work week doing Pilates with one of my favorite classmates. This was my last class at this studio since I wanna try different classes offered at ClassPass. I’ve been using the app for months now and I’m really happy that I get to try different studios with it.
Celebrated out 11th wedding anniversary having dinner at Osteria Daniel. I know I love taking photos and stories for my Instagram but when I’m with Jago, we always end up forgetting to take our couple photo ?. I guess he’s used to taking my photo and I’m used to taking videos of him for my Instagram stories that we always forget to take a couple photo! ? So for this year, wala kaming anniversary photo except for this foie gras risotto ?. Oh well, hopefully next year we have na.
So throwback na lang to the time I walked down the aisle. Gosh I was so young though I wasn’t that naive. All I know in my heart, it was one of the best decisions I made in my life. I can’t believe this was 11 years ago!
Oh November, you’ll always be one of my favorite months because of this. ❤️
