Omg!! Heart2Heart only discovered these scents now and it’s my favorite in @adora.ph

I personally prefer light scents and I smelled all of these and love them all !!  It’s all unisex. My number 1 is Petitgrain which resembles Spanish colognes. I wasn’t able to smell Dark Rhum because the tester ran out – apparently it’s the best seller

Pre Prom Cocktails

By | Celebrations | No Comments

Prom is a major event for parents that we organize pre prom cocktails so we can see all our children with their dates. So much fun!  We were 64 in the beautiful home of Fred and Kerri Uytengsu who hosted cocktails and each one brought food though not much food was eaten because we were busy taking photos  Maybe next time we should have a pre prom prom for the whole batch which defeats the purpose of keeping parents away from prom premises

Stock up on back-to-school pantry essentials at Rustan’s Supermarket

By | What's New at Rustan's | No Comments

As summer vacation ends and the kids prepare to go back to full days of learning, it’s time to start thinking about how to help the young ones start off on the right side of the morning, sustain energy well throughout the day, and end on a high note in the evening. Rustan’s Supermarket helps parents stock up for those school days with nutritious and delicious meals and essentials.

Make sure that the kids are ready for their day with a good, hearty breakfast. Oatmeal is a healthy, fiber-rich option that you can mix with their favorite fruits. You can cook up a breakfast classic like pancakes or waffles with many of the easy-to-make mixes available in the supermarket.Stock up on back to schoolWhen you’re grappling with time and need to prepare a quick yet nourishing morning meal, cereal and milk is the answer. There are whole-wheat choices that come in sweet flavors for the kids to enjoy. Fruit juices are also easy to pour and will give them a boost of vitamins.

For their baon, create different yummy sandwiches with the supermarket’s wide selection of breads, cheeses, and deli meats. Why not pack them a bagel with cream cheese spread, or surprise them with a sweet peanut butter and banana sandwich? You can also easily make their favorite filling meals such as mac n’ cheese or spaghetti and meatballs with pastas and ready-made sauces you can stock in your pantry.

It’s also a good idea to include snacks in their lunchbox that they can easily eat. Fruit cups, nuts, and oatmeal bars now come in enticing flavors that the kids will be excited to try. Treat them to some cookies—every kid will be excited to see that when they open their bag. Pick out snacks that are fuss-free and can be eaten even in the bus or car.

At dinnertime, reward the kids with a homemade meal prepared with love. Make pizza-making a fun activity at home that the kids can join in on. Just buy pita bread or ready-made dough and top with tomato sauce and cheeses. The kids can get creative with the toppings.

When you shop at Rustan’s Supermarket, you don’t just get to help your own kids get through their busy school days, but you can contribute to other children’s development just by buying everyday essentials.

From June 9 – July 9, 2017, all shoppers are eligible to buy the UNICEF Reusable Bag for P149.

Stock up on back to school

Those who spend at least P2,000 with P200 worth of sponsor products can get the bag for only P50. Each bag sold gives P20 for UNICEF to provide Early Childhood Care and Development. Their program, which helps address developmental delays in children and raises parents’ consciousness on their important roles in the early learning and development of their child, is for the benefit of children in sparsely populated areas in the country.

As you stock your kitchen for your little ones, grab this valuable chance to help other children with Rustan’s Supermarket.

Joe Fresh Spring Summer 2017 Collection

By | SSI Group Inc | No Comments

From the fragrant flower fields of Grasse to the birthplace of denim in Nimes, the relaxed spirit of the French countryside imbues the Spring collection with an easy sense of style. Dresses, blouses and scarves are the fluid canvas for painterly floral prints, signaling the bloom of springtime romance. The mood is heightened by flourishes of feminine ruffles and soft flounces on shoulder-baring silhouettes. The heritage of Nimes is seen in denim capsules including a cropped jean fit, updated shirtdresses and Tencel tops that make casual dressing soft and stylish. Wear-to-work essentials are part of the everyday mix in pencil skirts, tailored pants and office-friendly dresses.

Joe Fresh (3) Joe Fresh (2)Come weekends, a return to the countryside of Alsace inspires a fresh take on multi-hued Madras and elegant stripe motifs, adding graphic appeal to the season’s colour stories. With its modern mix of soft silhouettes, bold pattern and delicate details, the Spring season channels poetic French style at its best.

The photo exhibit, which will showcase the works of Adel Samson Esteemed opthalmologist, lead vocalist, technical scuba diver, athlete, teacher, internationally awarded photographer; also renowned cataract and lasik surgeon. This Renaissance man is generous with sharing his gifts as he has been blessed with them.  Dr. Adel Vergel Dizon Samson is husband to his beautiful and loving Millie; and proud father to gifted Rico and Isabela.

The interplay of Adel’s passion and profession have inevitably shaped his perspective. “Photography was instrumental in my being a surgeon.  It served as an inspiration to my being an opthalmologist in that the mechanics of a camera is patterned after the human  eye.  I came into full circle because of photography.”

Adel began his love for photography at the age of 9 when his father gave him his first SLR. Self taught by reading, experimenting, and working under the tutelage of Pancho Escaler in 1986, Adel has been winning and continues to win several photo contests earning him recognition both locally and internationally.

He is a member of the Camera Club of the Philippines since 2009. Adel has also been tapped by Leica to conduct talks during the brand’s product launches and other events here in the Philippines and abroad.

As a photographer, Adel values sharing the emotional response he captures. “To capture a scene and seeing God’s hand in shaping the landscape.  To capture a private moment that probably no one else sees, and to share that.” His philosophy is embodied in his photography: “capturing moments that will never happen again. Capture what is true and real but set your artistry free, let it soar.”  He pursues life with fire and passion and his images reflect that zeal and dedication. Adel’s ultimate goal is that his photographs evoke an emotional, cerebral, and spiritual imprint on his audience.

 Bien Bautista His photographs are reminiscent of saffron-robed monks and gregorian chants. Eloquent silences that breed inner peace and tranquility, joy and harmony. Some people refer to it as the transforming power of Zen. Some say it’s simply the magic that is BIEN. BIEN S. BAUTISTA, the photographer/artist, is indeed true to the title accorded him. His collection of photographs, comprising his second one-man exhibit MUY BIEN, a sequel to his first, ESTA BIEN, invites the viewer to a rare journey. The kind that transports him, pensive and unhurried, through black and white musings and colored dreams, soothing rhythms and rich illusory images that are altogether simple, pure and still like revered siesta hours in faraway childhood towns. And when he arrives, refreshed, at the waking hour, he experiences a clear and calm, translucent understanding of the self. The trip ends yet the discovery continues, for as long as man lives and breathes, and the universe is overwhelmingly peaceful… if only in the mind. Bien from out of the Blue… Bien’s formative years began at the Ateneo de Manila (elementary), followed by Colegio de San Agustin (High School) , and University of Santo Tomas (Fine Arts/Advertising.)  In between, his wanderlust inspired him to become an exchange student of the Youth for Understanding program. He attended Bridgeport High School and took up Architecture and Radio-TV production at Delta College, Michigan.  After U.S. came Europe for a 3-month Art & Music appreciation scholarship.  In 1980, Bien consolidated his expertise in all aspects of photography when he joined a professional photographic services group covering Advertising, Fashion, Industrial, Corporate, Travel, Documentary, Editorial, and Illustration.  In 1987, he established Black & White Asia, Inc. with wife Remy and brother Floren as partners, and in 1989, added the Baby Sitter Portrait Studio to the business with his charming and talented wife, Remy, at the helm.

Jijo de Guzman Back to Back Master Photographer for The Camera Club of the Philippines for 2015 and 2016. Master Cup finalist for 4 straight years. Three time winner of the Black and White Photograph of the year for The Camera Club of the Philippines for 2014, 2015, and 2016.

Holder of over 40 awards in various contests of The Camera Club of the Philippines for a span only of 3 years. Four time awardee in the 2015 International Photography Awards. Canon Ambassador and Crusader of Light.

With the barrage of acclamation, you would think that there is nothing more to say about Jijo De Guzman. However, at the core of this titan of a talent, is a humble and generous mentor whose true victories manifest in the aspiring photographers he educates and inspires through his teaching involvement with the Philippine Center for Creative Imagine and Canon Philippines. He also uses his talent for advocacy and issue-awareness campaigns. Among his recent involvements are with the Kalinga Feeding and Grooming program in Tondo and Unicef, among others.

While being a very well-rounded photographer, Jijo made his mark as the country’s premier Sports Photographer. He has shot over 60 sporting events, at least 12 of which were international events and 3 world championships.

Kakai Manotok-Arroyo and Jan Aliling Jose-Antonio “Jan” T. Aliling is a practicing lawyer by profession, but a photographer by passion.

Amidst his busy schedule, he regularly accepts professional engagements for commercial, documentation, travel, and portrait photography shoots. He has serviced clients for photography services for brochures, annual reports, magazines, websites, and even a billboard.
