“We literally had a playful time while working on the various pieces along with the unique artworks, inspired by the iconic toys we have chosen; it did bring out the child in us. After all, this season, is the happiest time of the year not only for the young, but also for the young at heart,” Lagon said.

Bounty Fresh Giant Chicken

Saturday, September 24, 2016

     I saw a big chicken on the top of one building in Magallanes last week and that humongous animal made me smile. It's really big but it's not real because it's just an inflatable chicken. This installation is a head-turner because I've noticed that some passengers inside MRT laugh secretly and had a smile on their faces after seeing that big chicken from afar.

     Traversing the usual EDSA traffic can easily turn travel into an irritating driving experience. And as the sea of red lights becomes the highlight of the day, motorists can’t help but to look for something that could ease their frustration. EDSA fixtures that have people smiling as they drive by are giant, inflatable chicken installations courtesy of Bounty Fresh.

Daryl Feril x Save My Bag Collection

Friday, June 03, 2016

      Hi dearies! I presume that you've already seen the collaborating works of Kiana Valenciano and Daryl Feril on my last posts. Now I'll give a short background on the award-winning illustrator Daryl Feril below and see up close the designs he made together with Kiana below :)

     Negros-based, award-winning illustrator Daryl Feril joins Kiana Valenciano in executing a special, bespoke collection of Save My Bag from Bergamo, Italy, for the Little White Box Pop-up Store in SM Megamall. The said collection calls for Feril to customize each bag with his unique illustrations, upon the client’s request, and under the guidance of Kiana as creative team captain.
Daryl Feril x Save My Bag Collection
Daryl Feril and Kiana Valenciano, overall style curator and creative team captain of the Little White Box Pop-Up Store, with Save My Bag, the must-have bag crafted in Bergamo, Italy
     Feril, a Fine Arts graduate from La Consolacion College Bacolod, has worked previously with such top brands such as Alexandra Mor New York, Bloom Miami, Tory Burch, Lee Jeans, LVMH, among others. Not only that, he was also featured in the edgy Juxtapose Magazine published out of San Francisco. 

     Some of the prestigious awards he has received are: Silver Metal - Best Design - Editorial, Magazine Cover: aDoBo Design Awards 2015, Philippines; and 150 Emerging Talents in Art, Design, Illustration & Photography: ASIAN CREATIVES by Ubies, Tokyo. After a series of meetings, and subsequent creative discussions, Daryl was ready to interpret and execute Kiana’s vision for the collection: bespoke, with no two bags identical. 
Daryl Feril x Save My Bag Collection
Internationally acclaimed illustrator Daryl Feril with the bespoke Save My Bag collection at the Little White Box Pop-Up Store in SM Megamall
     “I really wanted to work on something local and Kiana couldn’t have been a better partner,” he says. Working with the bag’s material, hi-tech Poly-Lycra, which makes it lightweight and waterproof, was a challenge for Daryl. “What attracted me to Save My Bag? It’s the quality and its purpose. And of course the idea of painting something on the bag which I thought of doing before but didn't think that I could. It was my first time painting on fabric and it's a bit challenging but I'm glad it turned out well,” Daryl continues.
     And so, paint brush in hand, Daryl then worked on turning the bags into unique canvases, where he was able to express himself freely. “My idea is that, you can carry art through the different bags,” Daryl relates. “Each bag in the collection features different designs, thereby making them truly bespoke. But I also wanted the them to be close to my illustration style.”
Daryl Feril x Save My Bag Collection
     What then, exactly, is Daryl’s illustration and artistic style? “It’s a burst of floral, taking cues from nature which for me has some of the craziest patterns, colors and creatures,” he explains. “Inspirations evolve; sometimes they are based on what I observe around or through the people I meet. And as this is a collaborative effort, I took in inputs from Kiana too.” 
Daryl Feril x Save My Bag Collection
The bespoke Save My Bag collection - Save My Bag is ultra lightweight, rain proof, and made from hi-tech Poly-Lycra.
     And a cursory look of Daryl’s unique bag creations for Save My Bag reveal all that and more—each one a window into his soul.

Novuhair Enhanced Formulation

Saturday, April 16, 2016

     I suffered hair loss fall in the past and the feeling was stressful. Imagine seeing more than 100 strands of hair lying on the floor after taking a bath. I feel for individuals who are suffering great hair loss resulting to baldness and alopecia. There are different products in the market today that offer solution to hair loss but not all are effective in the long run.

     Say goodbye to hair loss and scalp problems with the newly-enhanced formulation of Novuhair. With 19 natural ingredients, the leading medicated topical scalp lotion is now almost 100% natural. “The Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion used to only have 12 natural ingredients. Its improved formulation has a much better fragrance and a cool and minty feel. It also has anti-dandruff properties, as well as nourishing and moisturizing effects on the hair and scalp,” said Sheila Mae Velilla, CEO of Nutramedica, developer and distributor of Novuhair. More details about Novuhair below.
