My Hyphen Luxe Closet

One of the best things about co-owning a clothes brand is, well, the clothes! I get to fill my wardrobe every time we have new stocks…and that’s almost everyday! Take a look:

Here are the bat’s wing blouses that I’m crazy about. I have a few of them:

hyphen luxe periwinkle printed bat's wing blouse, by bitsandtreats

I can wear these with some of the buttons open or everything closed. I can wear them with a skirt or shorts. I can wear a contrasting top underneath. I can tie them or just let loose. The fabric makes my skin breathe. Since the sleeves are loose, it’s very easy to do several things at the same time while manning the store.

Another thing that I’m liking are these maxi dresses:

Please excuse the crumpled clothes. I just took them out of the closet and was in a hurry to photograph them. Busy, busy, busy.

I’m totally crazy about these maxi dresses even though I’m petite. I just wear a pair of wedges with them and they instantly make me feel like a princess. So ladylike!

I’ll show you more of my Hyphen Luxe finds in my next post. Visit us at Parksquare to have your own Hyphen Luxe closet!

Chic Purses

I got these purses from Hyphen Luxe:

Old Rose Studded Purse

These are Php390 each but I think they’re on sale now at Php350. I’m not a purse person because I just have to bring at least 1/4 of my room in my bag. But I just couldn’t resist these as #1, it’s green (which is my favorite color) and #2, it’s pink and it sparkles!

I decided to bring the old rose purse one day to work and see how much would fit inside. To my surprise, almost everything fit! I just had to take my makeup out of the kit and voila! My everyday essentials are in! It was too bulky though but never mind that. I’m happy that I got to use the purse and still had everything with me. Oh, and the straps didn’t fail me!

Hyphen Luxe has other purses and you might also want to check out Hyphen Curiosities that carries purses, accessories and other interesting knick knacks. We’re just starting this brand so there are only 2 collections there. More to come!

Hitting Pan

Well, this isn’t exactly a makeup pan:

kenzo yuzu and arden green tea perfumes, by bitsandtreats

But I’m really happy that I was able to finish these two bottles. I’ve had the privilege of hoarding perfume last December to February as they were on sale and had really good GWP’s with them. This is the first time that I am able to tolerate perfumes. When I was younger, I stuck with colognes and body sprays. Perfume gives me allergies. So it was only recently that I was able to enjoy this whole new realm.

These are the first bottles that I’ve finished so you can probably conclude that these are also my favorite.

Green Tea is not new. In fact, the refreshingly crisp green tea scent is very popular across all age groups. It’s a nice everyday scent. I also like the fact that the bottle is lightweight and spill proof. I bring this bottle whenever I go abroad.

Kenzo Eau de Fleur de Yuzu is a new fragrance that came out early this year. One whiff and I fell in love with this scent. It’s light and not too sweet. This is also a good everyday scent.

If you’re looking for a good perfume, look for JM at the Kenzo/Givenchy Counter or Pam at the Elizabeth Arden counter at Rustan’s Makati.

What’s your everyday perfume?

Rosebud Salve

Rosebud Salve was very popular during the 80’s-90’s (here in the PH). I know that because most of my clients who recognize the iconic pot were teenagers during that period. They always say “blast from the past” whenever they see this.

I was only introduced to this product last year and it was only early this year that I was finally able to try it. My friend said that it has a weird smell. It doesn’t smell weird to me though. I like the red orange color of the salve. I think it’s pretty. I like the tin can. It exudes that vintage vibe.

I think most of us use this as a lip balm but there’s a reason why it’s called a salve. You can use it on dry, chapped lips, dry elbows and knees, dry heels, callouses and on small nicks and wounds.  I haven’t tried using this other than as a lip balm because I think it’s too expensive to use on my elbows and knees. But as a lip balm, it definitely works. My lips stay moisturized throughout the day after a one-time application before leaving home. Well, that is if I avoid licking them. I’ve also seen this work on clients. Even my best friend who has chapped lips ends up with soft, smooth lips after application.

And because I have prepped lips, my lipstick stays on longer and the finish is better compared to when I use just plain lip balm. Just make sure that you apply this while prepping your face for makeup, meaning while you’re applying face primers, eye primers, etc. That way your lips can absorb the product and be ready for when it’s time for lipstick application.

One pot is expensive but it will last you for quite a long time. And just for the results, I’m staying loyal to this product.  For a lip balm junkie like me, that’s a big thing to say. Uhm.. well…  sorta. I’m staying loyal to this product and anything else that will suit my standards. Hehe. But this is definitely great to use on clients.

Fun Bun

This is a hairstyle that my bestfriend C did for me 2 weeks back.

It’s a side bun that’s hanging. She used some of my special hair tools to create this bun. I’m not sure if you can do this using regular hair pins.

She’s really great with hairstyles. I got so many compliments that day because of this look. It’s really nice to look made-up once in a while, don’t you agree? I love the surprised look people get when they see me in something out of the ordinary.
