true love that made me weep

Last night I watched the delayed telecast of American Idol for the 1st time.  I didn't know that Kara Dioguardi was already out.  I only watched it because I am a hardcore Steven Tyler Fan.  I know I would watch Idol everyday just to see him. haha. It's like I am getting to know more about my rockstar through his comments.  The latest episode I saw however made me shed bucket and bucket of tears. I know this news is late but I just wanna share.

Watch Chris Medina's Story




After the tragedy, Chris made this song for Juliana, her fiancee, while she was recovering in the hospital. This youtube video, was made on their supposed wedding day.  *tear*




Juliana Ramos' bridal shower turned as a fund raising activity for her medical expenses.  There are also various orgs where one can donate to help her.  Check HERE.

Chris is a member of a band in Milwaukee and we've pretty much known him over the past few days,  to find out more about Juliana's progress, check HERE.

Inspiring isn't it?

Latest Gossip Girl Episode

I watch Gossip Girl not because I like its story line but because I wanna find out more about the latest fashion trends.  I am personally a fan of Lilly Bass's style (please do not judge me by my age, I can still keep up with Taylor Swift songs).   I got interested in this episode more because of the neck pieces worn by almost all the female characters.

I love how almost all the necklaces were in RESIN material.  I personally think that transforming resin into chunky statement necklaces is brilliant.  Here's what Blair and Serena wore.



Resin Statement Necklace is definitely a must. And we've found pieces from our Jean & Rosz Luxe Collection  for you to achieve the look.

Check out this Clear and Black Chunky necklace just like Blair's



Check out this Resin Bib just like Serena's.

2011 Hits: Travel in Style with Beach and Co. Luggage

Last Year, I've been drooling about the Cambridge Satchels made in U.K.   Now that it is finally here in the Philippines (check this link),  I somewhat have lost interest (or maybe, i'm just trying to stop myself for another "need"  errr  "want").  However, upon looking for the next bag to save for, I came across the Beach and Co, travel cabin luggage.  This I think is something that I "want"  err "need".

The Voyages Extraordinaires line is one of Beach and Co’s pioneering products to hit Metro Manila this 2011.  Designed in Brighton, London, these cabin luggage comes with vintage charm perfect for travel and adventure this year.  I cannot wait to get my own piece!  
 
It is very light at only 1.8kg.  With its dimensions 18.5"x 13" x 7.25, the size is just perfect to carry along during trips or a girls-overnight. It is like keeping a piece of Europe on my way to...ummm... Maldives or umm... Capetown South Africa. Haha.  And the colors are definitely easy to spot amidst all the luggage in the airport.  



Beach and Co., Voyages Extraordinaires
Earhart- pink and white



Beach and Co., Voyages Extraordinaires
Kipling- black and yellow







It costs Php6,550 and IS AVAILABLE !!!!  
distributed by K-LUXE INDUSTRIES

Seen with Jean & Rosz

I was trying to look for a necklace that used to be part of our previous collection online. I needed to deconstruct that piece of necklace for a possible new design.  Too bad i didn't save the pics on my computer.  However, I stumbled upon these pretty girls wearing Jean & Rosz.


Margaux, is one of Candy magazine's resident stylists.  This is part of her feature to document her month long (yes, 31 days) of personal styling.  The Jean & Rosz Elephant necklace was luckily part of it! You can still own one for Php350.  Find out how you can order here.



Jeanne Khe, a young fashion blogger proudly showed off her Jean & Rosz wing ring in her photoblog.

Happy Lopez, Fashion Editor, Cosmopolitan

2011 Trend : Wide legged pants

Want to update your 2011 wardrobe? I'm sensing 70's fashion for this coming season so one key piece is the wide legged pants! This is a much forgiving cut than the ever popular skinnies. Just wear a fitted top for a polished look and of course don't forget your heels! I think i'll be bringing out my wide legged jeans from the past and pair them with wedges. I'm also in search for a camel colored one which will be perfect for summer!


Here's a few looks from S/S 2011 runway:
Alice + Olivia
the color plus the cut is so perfect for S/S
Dries Van Noten
i love the top and jeans look! I will try to recreate this :)
Etro
One of my favorite looks. I want need those pants!!! 
J Crew
Another favorite! I love the fresh and clean look. Another outfit to recreate!
Malandrino
Don't you just love the exaggerated pants? It's a modern take on the wide legged trend.
Rag and Bone
I looove the color combination!
YSL
The perfect jumpsuit this season! So chic!

I hope you all got inspired and got some ideas for S/S 2011. So what's your favorite look?

What's on my Nails?

I've been very busy the past few months that's why i can't even find time to visit my favorite nail salon. Despite that i still can't ignore my nails! Remember my obsession with manis and pedis here? So my solution was just to do it on my own! So my current obsession now is to buy nail polishes hihi. 


Let me share with you the steps in creating my polished nails: 
1. Cut your nails to desired length and shape. I prefer short square nails. I don't know how to cut/push cuticles so i leave them as is.
2. Apply base coat. I find this step very important. It will protect and keep your nails from discoloration. I use Orly Top 2 bottom.
3. Apply 2 coats of nail polish. My current favorites include:
 Dimsum Plum

Country Club Khaki

Cashmere Cardigan

Samba

4. Apply top coat to prevent chipping and to make it glossy. I use Orly in a snap, it doubles as a quick dry too!

With all these products doing your own nails is such a breeze :) So what's your nail polish today?

How we spent our yesterday

Yesterday, during our afternoon coffee  shopping break, we decided to go down from our home office to take a look at the newly opened Pure Beauty Store. The manager told me last week that they will have 10% off on all items for this particular day. I wanted to get a bottle of ORLY Mirror Mirror as it is my first official nail polish as an adult. Jean, being a nail polish addict was so excited to introduce me to the world of lacquer. And so we went.

To our surprise, a launch event was happening and so we took the opportunity of looking around, understanding their products and with a phone cam show you a tiny part of the store.  Pardon our unclear photos as we didn't plan on writing about this.


Pure Beauty is a newly opened Beauty Store in Serendra, The Fort. I am assuming that it is owned by Sprint Asia Philippines, distributor of Orly Nail Polish, Mud Make-Up Designory, Temptu Airbrush Sets, and Nyx.  Nyx Lippies start at Php 300++ only.  We also got a glimpse of the Orly Cosmic FX Line.  We were so engrossed with their Orly Selection, we ended with not just Mirror Mirror Polish but a few  more ORLY stuff. We saw some friends in my crappy casual cool outfit too. What a timing.

After this coincidental event, we walked towards High Street for coffee but decided to taste Patchi lebanese chocolates. (Well I didn't taste it, Jean did)

I love the Patchi Store as the chocolates looked like gold mine.  They seem are expensive.  But see how the chocolates are categorized into colors.  I would love to receive one of their chocolate gift sets.  Ahem! I hope my husband reads this ( I want those wrapped in silver).  Check out the pink baby shower gift set worth Php14,000 ++ for your preggy friends. (Or might as well just buy a baby stroller. HAHAHAHA)


After Patchi, we were on our way to Bo's Coffee, when the SALE sign caught our attention from Dimensione.  We were trying to resist the sale (from Aldo, T, Lyn, La Senza, Havaianas, Adidas, Charles and Keith etc)  from the top floor since a few weeks ago, but decided to just close our eyes  have a quick look at their stuff.


This is us.  See my right foot getting ready to try on a pair.  I honestly thought we couldn't find anything anymore since these are just some leftovers but yes, Jean (not me) bought a pair of shoes. As for me, I bought few some things too.

We went back to our home office and got back to work.  We never reached Bo's Coffee, nor had coffee during our coffee break.  We weren't empty handed though. Had all these in less than 30 minutes

Best Buys for the day:  Leopard Print Cosmetic Kit from T, Php499 on sale at Php129.00.  Lyn Camel Shimmer Shoes, Php 3,200 on sale at Php 750.00


Jean in her new pair, new nail lacquer and OOOPS, she is wearing the Jean & Rosz Leather and Rhinestone Wrap set to be launched in a few weeks.

Our unplanned coffee  shopping break was definitely worthit.

Yesterday was fun. But today is great!   One item 70% off promo starts today. See you at the Rockwell Tent, Supersale Bazaar today till Sunday!

Online Coupon: Swirls Frozen Kefir Promo

A few days ago,  I told you guys that Swirls Frozen Kefir  is opening in Mall of Asia Manila.  Kefir is a cultured enzyme which promotes wellness with countless health benefits (Read more about it HERE).  The first soft-serve frozen kefir in the Philippines opened last Sunday.  Of course I needed to try it. Frozen Kefir is much better than Frozen Yogurt !  Read HERE.  First it has 30++ good bacteria for the body vs just a handful from yogurt and Kefir has more powerful digestive enzymes than the transient yogurt.

A peek at the newly opened store.




Goodbye Froyo! Hello Kefroz


my camera accessory and my plain 8 oz of healthy goodness!
the perfect contrast between the tangy zing and the creamy sweetness is definitely better than fro-yo.
2 thumbs up!

Great news for Jean & Rosz readers!  As a way of thanking you, we want you to be the first to try this healthy goodness by giving you a Swirls and Jean & Rosz exclusive.

Print this coupon, present to Swirls Mall of Asia, BUY 1 TAKE 1, 5 days only so grab this opportunity with your friends.

2011 Hits: Cluster Necklaces

WGSN, the leading online fashion trend analysis company released a review of what's hot in the accessory retail industry.  Considered as the fashion bible of the 21st century, it requires millions of pesos to subscribe to this creative intelligence resource with highly reputable writers.  But thanks to an unnamed friend who's currently a subscriber.  She generously sent me the most recent trend analysis for necklaces.  And yes.  Cluster necklace is a must for 2011.  Here's a list of the key trends this year for Cluster necklace:  hurry and take notes.



As seen from top designers:

Christian Dior
The unique take on pearl multistrands coupled with furry accents was cleverly executed with a stamp of Dior elegance.

 Dolce and Gabbana
I am proud to say that Jean & Rosz is up to date with the black, gold, rosette and antique cluster as seen in our last holiday collection.  I am personally loving the execution of this piece.

 Moschino
This cluster rhinestone bib is something that is usually worn during formals in the country, but I believe we should expect more of these bold, striking and blingy pieces in the next coming days.  Wait for our next collection. I can hardly contain my excitement for it.

Oscar de la Renta
This gem and bead cluster is definitely a hard find.  I am so impressed with the intricacy of the details and how it was executed.  Cluster neckpieces are instant attention grabbers, zeroing in the focus on the neck area but the subtle yet striking factor of the colors and play in clustering make this ironic piece a hit!

 PPQ
Chains, clustered pearls and geometric gems. Wow, I would think that this piece is too embellished to be worn in our country. But what the heck, you will never be too embellished for a PPQ piece probably worth my annual salary.  3 trendy elements executed in 1 piece. What more could you ask for?

Being an accessory trend spotter,  I am just in awe. Thank goodness for these pieces, I am now so inspired to search and find for the pieces which the same elements and I promise you, I will not stop till I find not only the affordable versions but as well as something that is "easily wearable, strikingly noticeable".  I wonder how the street wear manufacturers will execute theirs from all these charming neckpieces from fashion gods.  I will update you soon.

For now, I leave you with a current Jean & Rosz piece that may somehow have the elements of the Cluster Necklace trends mentioned.  Our version though is a little low key, making it wearable casually.


Jean & Rosz  Pearl Antique Rhinestone Cluster Necklace PHP650.00 ($ USD 14)

Have a nice day!
