Holy Week Sightings: KA-BLOG’s Mico Aytona, sandboarding and other bloggables on Ilocos sand

3/31/2010 Mico Aytona shoots an episode for GMA Kapuso’s Ka-Blog, a teen magazine show. The Laoag Sand Dunes sandboarding/off-roading feature is scheduled to air on Saturday, April 10, 2010 at 9:00 AM.

“Astig!!!!” was all he could utter after driving the mean machine on his own. Overwhelmed, perhaps.

Sandboarding, the new board sport on sand to try in Ilocos! Developed by the LEAD Movement.

A ladybugged tourist. I think she got ‘em from here.

Chucked… or Converts? One and the same. Laid-back chic personified.

Now they can wear their scarves, which were ubiquitous on the streets  in 2007.

Fashionable size… MINI! Ewww, if you bring the whole bottle!!!!!

4/2/2010 I spotted the roving Havaianas team :) They ended giving me one of those flip-floats.

Fit and fab Alma Oida in surfing mode. Surfing lessons in Kapuluan Vista Resort, anyone?

The most adorable reusable water bottle I spotted at the beach. It belongs to Red Dot’s fashion guru, Me-Ann Cua Macaraeg. It’s from Pylones (pronounced pee-lone), her fave store for the cutest knickknacks.

Photography gear envy! I have to get a DiCAPac SLR Pack Waterproof Camera Case for myself, too.

One of these surfboards belongs to ABS-CBN kapamilya Jericho Rosales.

Or, maybe, one of these. Surf’s up photos of Echo. *inserts* I had to check… he was on a purple one.

Henna tattooing by Tattoo de Iloco found at the Villa del Mar beachfront in Saud, Pagudpud.

Skin art masterpiece by no less than Janer Santos, The Premier Tattooist of the North, a PhilTAG member.

The leading handy phone dealer in Ilocos Norte, Vertext, also set camp in Villa del Mar. Mixing business with pleasure :)

I overheard that kapamilya  Enchong Dee and Victor Basa were on the other side of the Saud Beach stretch. Promise to post photos if Ericke was lucky.

Wishin’ you all a happy Easter and a bright summer!

Liberty of London on the face

M∙A∙C celebrates Liberty of London’s famous Liberty print fabrics – the sweetest tiny garden floral prints popularized by Liberty & Co. department store. Now not only on dresses, underwear, bags, Converse  and Nike shoes, but also on the face, and soon on stylish sexy hooves… yes, with Manolos! Yes, Liberty on Manolo Blahniks!!  I wanted to grab M∙A∙C’s medium make-up bag and Ever Hip lipstick in the cutest liberty print case, but both are sold out. I hope they still get to hit the M∙A∙C stores in Manila.

Anna Sui dress is available here

The Liberty at Carnaby St, dressed in Betsy print, in August last year.

And the latest from Target, the American retailer…  hitting bullseye this summer with Liberty of London.

Mother and Daughter Conversation

I just want to share with you this favorite shot of mine.

“Under my wings, you’ll start to ask yourself,
Under my wings, you’ll learn to fly,
Under my wings, you’ll start to look for me,
Under my wings, you’ll want to cry sometimes,
Under my wings, you’ll find someone to hold unto  — if you want to.”
