All eyes are on the couple on their wedding day but before walking down the aisle, nothing makes any bride-to-be feel special than a gorgeous themed bridal shower with her closest friends. It’s the ultimate way to bring everyone together ahead of the bride’s big day. Actress Anne Curtis’ recent Cocktails at Tiffany’s celebration was certainly no exception.


Hosted by Tiffany & Co and Rustan’s, the party was a true reflection of the darling bride’s personality—elegant, sparkly, and fun. It was decorated with lovely details and Anne, who has been a fan of the iconic movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, definitely enjoyed her special “Audrey Hepburn” moment.

Bride-to-be’s sister and maid of honor Jasmine Curtis-Smith shared how her sister has an impressive Audrey Hepburn collection, from dolls, to pillows, and of course, jewelry. She also added that it was Anne who got her her first Tiffany jewelry, which made it even more special.

Guests like Karylle Yuzon, Nicole Andersson, Antoinette Taus, and some of the bride’s childhood friends also had a fantastic time with games and activities especially prepared for them. There’s the Tiffany Flower bar and some classic bridal shower games like the “He said, She Said,” and charades. Of course, the ladies also took the time to look through and try on some of the jewelry on display, including the ultimate celebration of love the Tiffany Setting.


A true design masterpiece, the Tiffany Setting is the world’s most iconic engagement ring. The setting’s introduction was a milestone in jewelry design and made Tiffany the world’s premier jeweler for diamond engagement rings. First introduced back in 1886 by founder Charles Lewis Tiffany, the Tiffany Setting quickly became the quintessential engagement ring being the first to lift the diamond off the band, maximizing the stone’s natural radiance with the use of the innovative 6-prong design. So flawlessly engineered, it has been a symbol of the world’s greatest love stories for over 130 years.

In matters to the heart, Tiffany & Co has no equal. It is a symbol of beautiful memories and meaningful celebrations, making special moments like this with lifelong friends even more memorable.

Tiffany & Co. is exclusively available at Rustan’s Makati, Shangri-La, Gateway, Alabang and Cebu.

Meet Me at Starbucks

By | Bridal, Valentine's Day, What's New at Starbucks? | No Comments

It often starts with “What do you do?”, “Kamusta weekend mo?” or “Kamusta traffic sa area mo?” Then, eventually, this small talk turns into conversations revolving around families, hobbies and passions. And, in those moments where two people do nothing but simply talk about their lives and open up their souls to one another, good things happen.

This is true for the two couples who started their relationship with a good conversation over Starbucks coffee. Alvin and Deborah first met at Starbucks, while study buddies Luis and Jet got to know each other better after a Starbucks coffee seminar.

In 2013, Alvin invited Deborah to meet up at Starbucks i2 Point in Cebu after being introduced to each other through Facebook by a common friend. They talked for the first time over Java Chip Frappuccino®, Caramel Frappuccino® and a Cinnamon Roll. In less than a month, they made their relationship official.

Meet Me at Starbucks (1)After three years, Alvin, a self-proclaimed poet, proposed to her through a 14-stanza poem. “I gave her one stanza of the poem every month during our coffee dates at Starbucks. It started on September 25, 2013, and went on for a year. After that, I never wrote her a poem again.  I decided to fulfill my plan to propose to her last March 25, 2015 and created photo slides of us with each stanza of the poem in it, but now with the culminating stanza asking her to be my wife,” Alvin shared.

Last year, they had their prenuptial photoshoot at the Starbucks store where they first met. They are now married for eight months and expecting their first born very soon.

Meanwhile, Luis and Jet’s story is a bit different. They were part of a study group that regularly met at Starbucks to review for the board exams. One Sunday after the exams, the two met again at Starbucks just to read books and spend alone time together, until a barista invited them to join a coffee seminar.Meet Me at Starbucks (2)They obliged and had a wonderful coffee experience by discovering the different growing regions and types of coffee. After the seminar, they got to know each other on a more personal level as they were able to talk more comfortably. That same day, I came to know that he loves to go to the movies and dreams about being Batman. He also allowed me to share a laugh with him about his funny childhood antics, which I still laugh about to this very moment. The coffee experience loosens up people and makes them more comfortable, and I think this is why the term ‘COCOL’ (Coffee-Coffee Lang) also became popular,” Jet shared. They agreed to attend the  following week’s coffee seminar, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Now about to get married, they still remember that first time they had a good conversation and the friendly faces of the baristas who invited them to the coffee seminar.

These, and more, happened at a place where people meet to bond and enjoy each other’s company. Starbucks, from the very start, has strived to be the third place between home and work – where one can form and keep meaningful relationships.

And, in the spirit of encouraging meaningful connections over good coffee, Starbucks invites everyone to its “Meet Me At Starbucks for a Date Night” event on February 14, 6-8PM at EVIA Daang Hari in Las Piñas and The Venice Grand Canal in Taguig, and 7-9PM at Axis Entertainment Center in Cebu and E- Lopez in Quezon City. Live musical performances, food and beverage samples, and special treats await you during the event.

Celebrate love over a cup of your favorite handcrafted beverages and share your photos and stories at – because good things happen when you get together.
