When you think of Longchamp, their famous Le Pliage bag is probably the first thing that comes to mind. If you already own a purse featuring that instantly recognizable button flap, we suggest checking out some other styles in their catalog—we’re currently eyeing this new piece from their Le Foulonné line. The modern-minimalist crossbody bag sports no distinct flaps or buckles on the body, letting the slim shape take center stage. It oozes casual, effortless sophistication—totally worth the investment!

Available at Rustan’s stores in Ayala Center Makati, Shangri-La Plaza, and Greenbelt 5 as well as on the Rustan’s website.

Create head-turning eye looks minus the fuss with local brand Strokes’ Eye Paint Duo. The double-ended tube features a matte cream eyeshadow on one end and a shimmery cream shadow on the other. Instead of spending several minutes blending and building up powder on your lids, just apply a bit of these mousse-like creams and blend them out with your finger. You’ll end up with a softly blended, vibrantly pigmented finish in no time.

Give your snapshots a vintage flair with Fujifilm’s new Instax Mini 40. Not only does the instant-print camera sport a retro-inspired look, it also makes your pics look straight out of a time machine. Sure, digital photos on your phone are always an option, but turning your memories into keepsakes always makes them feel a little more special. The camera was released along with the new Contact Sheet mini-format film, which features a black frame with orange text, adding a vintage feel to each of your photographs. The design simulates an actual contact sheet used in analog photography—for those of you born in the digital age, that's a bromide sheet printed with all the negatives from a roll of film.

Available at Wonder Photo Shop, Henry’s Cameras, Lazada, and Shopee.

Lush Sleepy Dust (P495)

Lush Sleepy Dust Powder

If you’re looking for ways to make your nighttime, pre-sleep routine a little more relaxing, add this Sleepy Dust powder from Lush to your wish list. All you have to do is sprinkle it all over the way you would any regular powder—not only does it leave behind a soothing lavender and chamomile aroma that will help you calm down before bed, it also softens the skin and absorbs excess oil and lotion from your skin. That way, you feel extra cool, calm, and refreshed right before you doze off.


Available online; see a list of Lush stores.

SteepShot (P3,800)

Looking to get into home brewing, but don’t have space for a bulky device? Give the SteepShot a try. The device uses pressure to push water through medium-fine coffee grounds—not unlike the electric espresso machines you would find at your fave café—and it does that in just one handy dandy tool that you can fit inside your bag. The pressure allows the water to penetrate the coffee grounds efficiently, resulting in a strong, flavorful brew and reducing brew time when compared to manual coffee makers like a dripper or Vietnamese coffee maker. The method’s quick brewing process also eliminates the possibility of coffee grounds reacting to the water for too long (a.k.a. over-extraction), which is what commonly causes that bitter coffee taste most of us are trying to avoid.

Converse Chuck 70 Hi Pride Sneakers (P4,999)

Celebrate Pride Month with these adorable Converse sneakers! Their 2021 Pride Collection includes several lace-ups (and a pair of slides) decked out in vibrant rainbow designs—these high-cut Chuck 70s are our fave from the line. The pair sports a predominantly cream-colored exterior with a vibrant rainbow swirling around on the outer side. The inner side keeps it simpler with a clean, no-frills look, though the Converse All Star logo can be seen rocking a prismatic pattern. Plus, the inner side of the tongue has the words "find your pride" printed in thick black font and the sole is decked out in a gradient rainbow.

Available online.

Colourette ColorBalm (P299)

Keep your makeup looks fresh and effortless with Colourette’s new ColourBalm. The local brand’s take on a tinted lip balm leaves your kisser looking plump and glossy while also feeling moisturized and nourished. Use it anytime you need a just quick touch of color on your lips—no liner or precise application required.

Available online.

Chaser Whip Roller Skates (P2,995)

Chaser Whip Roller Skates

Whether you still don’t know how to ride a bike or you just don't have the space for a bulky transportation device at home, you might want to try roller skates instead. These pretty pink skates from Chaser will let you relive your childhood. Instead of having to lug a bike around and constantly find places to park it, all you have to do is put these on like a pair of sneakers and you’re free to wheel around the Metro in style.
