Five Favorites

It’s been quite chilly in the city the past few days because of the storm. We’ve all been cocooning inside our family room—bundled up in fluffy throws, reading and watching countless TV series (Tom and I are so into “Fargo”) and movies. No one wants to move. I managed to cook a big batch of brown rice arroz caldo so we’ve been eating that a lot. Ang sarap.

More of my favorites this cool weather season:

1. Kaldi Single Serve Machine, CBTL Capsules and Milk Frother from Coffee Bean & Tea leaf

We’ve had our CBTL Kaldi Single Serve Machine for more than 5 years already and we’re attached to it. Next to our phones, this coffee maker is one of the most used gadgets at home. We really love it!


Thank you, CBTL for the gifts!!!

Warm, creamy and frothy milk in your coffee and hot chocolate is life-changing! This CBTL Milk Frother also makes excellent babyccinos!


The CBTL Capsules is why we love using our machine. They taste great and you can’t beat the P40 per capsule price tag!


2. Love Style Life By Garance Doré

I got this book as a present during one of our exchange gifts parties. I really enjoyed reading this book. I like that it’s more than a stylish picture book—the tome is full of Garance’ s personality, style and wisdom. Thank you, Mitch So!


Garance Doré is a photographer, illustrator, author, and founder of an eponymous influential style blog. Winner of the CFDA Eugenia Sheppard Media Award, Doré has contributed both as a writer and photographer to publications including American, British, and Paris Vogue, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, T Magazine, Elle, The Guardian, and New York magazine. Originally from Corsica, she currently lives in New York City. This is her first book.

3. Mini Moet and Champagne Coup

Just the right size for a night cap. Champagne also seems to taste (or at least looks better) better when poured into a classic crystal coupe.


4. Crystal Cone Wine Stopper from Charming Charlie

This was a gift from my daughter. She attended the opening of Charming Charlie store in BGC Square and bought it for me. According to Aryanna, their shop sells super affordable fashion and home decor products.


A great (and gorgeous) hostess gift!

5. Blackboard Art At Home

Aryanna’s been learning calligraphy and her blackboard art has been a treat for the family.


Christmas is just around the corner, wishing everyone a meaningful and happy holidays!
