Spotted at the Peninsula Manila lobby. Is it Lady Gaga?
Or is it Bianca Valerio? XO
Inside: a six-page spread on the art and times of celebrated artist, Yayoi Kusama, who will unveil her collaboration with Louis Vuitton. Expect to see ready-to-wear, handbags, accessories, shoes, watches, jewelry, and special window displays in early July.
This early, W mag gives us a glimpse of what to expect in the handbag department.
Looks like a Papillon and a Lockit
Can’t wait to see the other pieces, if they are worth coveting.
According to a Louis Vuitton fan on the Purseblog forum, “I was told by the manager at my LV that although this collab is under tight wraps, there will be two releases and the first release (July) will be the higher-end bags and ready to wear. These will be more intense, as pictured in W Magazine.
“The second release will be sometime around October and will feature more traditional collab items such as the Neverfull, Keepall, and probably a Speedy. These will be more wearable, similar to the graffiti line. There will be monogram.” (Source)
What are you thoughts on these two pieces? Yay or Nay?
As a mom of three boys ages 4, 9 and 10, I’m really glad we have more choices when it comes to kids’ wear.
Our usual stops include Gap and Zara, but what’s surprisingly cool is Debenhams, which offers boys wear not found in the other stores I mentioned.
This is where we buy everything from multipack underwear and socks, to sleepwear and long-sleeve T-shirts for traveling.
Debenhams is home to childrenswear from top British designers Matthew Williamson, Jasper Conran and John Rocha for boys up to 14 years old. Kids can also choose great outfits from Debenhams private labels Bluezoo and Mantaray.
Little girls shine in this season’s colors and florals as seen on Butterfly by Matthew Williamson and Bluezoo dresses, or clean and smart nautical outfits from J by Jasper Conran.
Shop now at Debenhams from May 13 to 30 to get a free Php 200 gift voucher for every P2,500 single receipt purchase of Childrenswear. Debenhams Loyalty Card members can also join the raffle for a chance to win a Php 10,000 Childrenswear shopping spree.
Debenhams stores are located at Shangri-La Plaza Mall, Rustan’s Makati, Trinoma and Abreeza Mall in Davao.
As far as cheesecake goes, my favorite one used to be in a café called So Tired in Aoyama, Tokyo.
Too bad it was no longer there the last time I visited. For the longest time I tried to find good cheesecake in Manila without success. Until last week when we happened to pass by The Cake Club at the new Bonifacio High Street.
I’m not talking about this kind of cheesecake, because I like my cheesecake absolutely plain and traditional
I’m talking about their cheesecake ice cream, which is so creamy. Jeroen says it tastes like they tossed a cheesecake inside a blender and made it into ice cream.
Luckily you can buy these tubs at The Cake Club and take them home.
Best sellers are Supermoist Chocolate Cake, Baked Cheesecake, Black Sesame and Taro & Jack Fruit.
While The Cake Club is already well known for its desserts, a lot of people don’t know that they serve really good food, even though the selection is very limited. The truffle fries are my favorite. They’re a winner! Eat them while they’re piping hot. Perfect with an ice-cold Coke.
Grace loved the Grilled Reuben Sandwich
George and Len liked the Red Beet Burger in the crimson bun
Jeroen recommends the Lamb Burger
the Roasted Red Beet Soup with goat cheese, green apples, and toasted walnuts
and Baked Salmon with Mediterranean crust and saffron risotto.
The Cake Club originates from the Diamond Hotel. It opened its first branch at Rockwell Mall and a second one at Bonifacio High Street, 7th Avenue.
Aside from hot meals and pastries, The Cake Club also serves coffee and tea. Their selection includes Malongo coffees and Hediard teas from France.
They offer a selection of wines
their famous ensaymada
and a wide range of Royce’ chocolate for you to take home.

The Cake Club is now open at Bonifacio High Street, 7th Street, Bonifacio Global City Taguig.
