UNIQLO launched its Fall / Winter 2014 Collection last Sept. 5, 2014 at the SM Mega Fashion Hall. The main themes were travel, work, and play. We love UNIQLO here at home. It's where we buy essentials like casual wear, lounge wear, sleep wear, inner wear... yup, from me to hubby to the kids!
The collection was showcased in Life Cubes that represent different style situations. Check out the Travel Essentials cube. I love the layers -- if you're going somewhere warm (and downright hot) like the Philippines (think no aircon airport), all you need to do is peel off layer after layer until you're comfortable.
I love this look. I wish I could travel like this but I get hot easily and I'd probably start sweating like it's nobody's business unless I go somewhere with snow, lol.
These are the Play Essentials. Since it is the Fall / Winter collection, there are sweaters, flannels, jackets, and jeans -- everything that can keep you warm and toasty.
I got some products from Himalaya Herbals for review over a week ago. Founded in 1930, this brand is present in over 80 countries and is considered a pioneer in the use of modern science in the development of herbal products. They have manufacturing facilities in both India and Dubai, and their products are also available in the Philippines!
I will be reviewing several products from Himalaya Herbals but I will start with the basics -- Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash. It comes in 2 forms: Gel type and Foam type.
I tried out Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash (gel type) first. But before I proceed, what is Neem?
The Neem Tree is an evergreen tree that is part of the mahogany family. Neem bark, leaves, fruits, seeds, and oils all contain medicinal qualities. Women in India have relied on Neem for flawless skin for thousands of years. Neem has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties plus it's gentle on the skin.
I went home to a Krispy Kreme box a little over a week ago. It was spot on because I had just picked up the kids from school and it was time for merienda.
At this point, I knew their latest offering was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-themed doughnuts.
Ooooh! Instead of ninja turtles, I was greeted by chocolates! It was actually a box of Krispy Kreme's Limited Edition Cadbury Doughnuts! We were all very excited because we really love the incredibly rich and creamy Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolates. There are four doughnuts in KK's Cadbury series:
Chocolate and Biscuit (the checkered donut in the photo above) - Topped with checkered chocolate ganache and sprinkled with graham cracker crunch, this is my daughters' favorite. She said it's the best doughnut she has ever had so I hope they keep it around at least for a few months, lol.
Triple Chocolate (the half brown half white donut in the photo above) - Dipped in dark and white chocolate then topped with a cube of Cadbury Dairy Milk (as well as crushed pieces) and Vanilla Kreme icing, it's the chocoholic's dream come true.
Fruit & Nut (first donut on the left in the photo above) - A white chocolate-dipped dougnut topped with chopped Cadbury Fruit & Nut. My son liked this one best.
Chocolate Mud Pie - More than Triple Chocolate, I think this is the more hardcore chocolate doughnut because it's filled with chocolate kreme, dipped in dark chocolate, and then topped with crushed Oreos and chopped Cadbury Dairy Milk.
