Reminisce those happy childhood moments



Remember when dancing with mum (or more like adorably jumping up and down) with our small and fragile legs was the highlight of our day? Relive those memories with RISIS latest collection called Dance. Fashioned after an orchid’s swaying petals, this exquisite collection comprises a necklace, a brooch, and a bangle -- all plated in precious rhodium, because mum deserves nothing less.


Unwind with mum with some delicious herbal brews 



Growing up means keeping up with our busy schedules. And sometimes, getting too worn out with work makes chatting with our mums a little difficult. However, this Mother’s Day, make time and chat the afternoon away together over soothing teas by 1872 Clipper Tea Co. Add a twist to herbal classics like Chamomile and go for refreshing blends like Blissful Berries or Peace of Mind.


Bond over food with grill cookouts



There's nothing more nostalgic and comforting than mum's cooking. But this Mother's Day, it's your turn to treat mum to a special homecooked meal with Weber's lid-down cooking technique. 

With the Weber Original Gourmet BBQ System (compatible with the full-size models) you can now roast, smoke, poach, bake, and even fry on this single appliance, perfect for preparing a dining experience your mum would be proud of.


Keep mum healthy and fit 


Nothing is greater than knowing that our loved ones, especially our mums, are in good health. Give your mum some of Guardian’s range of high-grade, yet purse-friendly supplements to keep her in tip-top shape!

ALDO, one of the international leaders in fashion footwear and accessories, held their Spring/Summer 2016 Fashion Party last April 21, 2016. Trendsetters consisting of the city’s top fashion editors, industry insiders, and esteemed guests gathered at The Luxe Art Museum to view ALDO’s SS16 Collection.

Guests were treated to a runway show featuring some of the hottest footwear and arm candy of this season, presented in four different themes – Sunshine Yellow, Second Skin, Rainbow Splash, and Best Practice. Models were dressed in white to represent the blank canvases that showcased the unique colours and patterns of ALDO’s SS16 Collection, which featured block-heeled sandals, neutral espadrilles, suede derbies, and preppy oxfords.

One of the highlights of the SS16 Fashion Party was the interactive flat lay photo showcase by four fashion tastemakers, handpicked for their creative expression: Daryl Yow (fashion and lifestyle photographer), Jessica Tham (entrepreneur), Nellie Lim (social media creative), and Savina Chai (creative director). 



The SS16 Fashion Party was hosted by the energetic Sonia Chew, DJ of The Bright Side at 987FM, and the playlist was made by Linda Hao, guest DJ and fashion icon. The evening also had other surprises in store, including a flat lay photo competition, as well as keepsakes for the guests to take home.

For every season, there is a corresponding ‘signature’ makeup look – how spring is all about bright colours and pastels; while winter is about dewy skin and red lips, and so on – that most of us follow. 

If you think that this year’s Fall/Winter beauty trends will revert back to berry lips and flawless, matte skin, you are in for a surprise as what we found backstage at Manila Fashion Festival F/W 16 was the opposite. Hint, hint, there were a lot of natural, glowing skin! 



So in our quest to stay ahead in our beauty game (and help you in yours, too), we sat down with head makeup artist for MAC cosmetics Al De Leon during Day 1 of the 4-day affair for a quick beauty chat; and got her two cents on her beauty predictions, favourite looks, and more! 

--------------------------


What makeup looks are we going to see [for day 1 of MFF]?

To me, there are 2 interesting looks – 1 of Cheetah Rivera’s violet smoky eye with glitter; and Anthony Ramirez’s dark, Egyptian-inspired cat eye.



What are the makeup products you used to create the looks?

To create the dewy skin that will be seen in tonight’s show, we used a lot of the Face and Body and Studio Waterweight foundations because they both automatically give you dewy skin. As for skincare, I like to use the Prep + Prime Moisture Infusion Serum and Lightful C Marine-Bright Formula Softening Lotion.

If you were to translate the violet smoky eyes and the extreme cat eye in real life, how would you advise people to recreate it?

For Cheetah Rivera’s violet smoky eye and glitter, I’d probably skip the glitter and try silver eyeliner on the lower lashline and the inner corner of the eyes. You have to try it! It will brighten up your eyes and it’s a good mix with violet.

And for Anthony Ramirez’s look, there’s nothing wrong with having a cat eye look. But I wouldn’t apply it as big and as saturated as Anthony would have it on stage.

What’s your favourite makeup trend for Fall/Winter 2016?

I think it will have to be bare skin – bare, healthy, glowy-looking skin – that we will actually see a lot of in MFF.

Which makeup trend would you want to “disappear” for Fall/Winter 2016? 

I wouldn’t want it to disappear but it’s not requested for this season – contouring. Some designers specifically ask to not have contouring. But with Cheetah Rivera’s we will see some contouring on the cheeks.
