Feature: JBL Jr. Headphones

Wednesday, November 08, 2017

     Kids these days are so into gadgets. I presume that kids of this generation would love to receive a new iPad, mobile phone, game console, or accessories that they will use in the gadgets that they already have. We cannot blame technology if our kids will choose these over stuff toys and other playset but we can control the pros and cons a gadget brings.

     My son, Kenzo loves to watch YouTube videos. He's into race cars and musical instruments. He's into music as his dad while he also loves to play games like momma. On a long road trip, I know he needs a headphone that delivers remarkable sound so he can still enjoy the trip while watching videos or listening to music. Enter JBL Jr.- brightly colored wired and wireless lightweight headphones that let kids enjoy music, movies and more while providing the promise of safety and durability.

OOTD: White Walls

Saturday, April 23, 2016

     If you're a fan of the movie- Cars, prolly you're thinking that the title of this post will showcase those white walls! Cars movie fanatics surely have an idea that I'm talking about white wall tires. Well, this is Kenzo's second outfit of the day (OOTD) post for this year and I'm excited to share the outfit details below. 

     But first, the title of the post is somewhat connected with the word 'white', not the white wall tires that was mentioned in the movie (the scene of McQueen, Luigi, and Guido) because it's more of the color of Kenzo's outfit. Since white sneakers are sooo in, let me share with you his white kicks and why I chose the style and the brand after the jump :)
OOTD: White Walls
     So here's a short story about the brand and style of Kenzo's white sneakers. By the way, the hubby and I still believe in the saying "old school is cool" that's why we have chosen K-Swiss. If you're a 90's baby, I'm sure that you have heard of the brand before. We saw this white sneakers on display at Rookie USA Fairview Terraces and I fell in love with it immediately.
OOTD: White Walls
Top- Converse

Bottom- Uniqlo Easy Pants

Shoes- K-Swiss Hoke Strap Sneakers

Socks- OshKosh B'gosh

     I asked hubby's opinion first before buying this sneakers. And because he's a fan of classic and simple style sneakers, we agreed to buy the sneakers for Kenzo's P.E. shoes this coming school year but because it's simply stylish, Kenzo's been abusing the shoes already. Hahaha! 
OOTD: White Walls
K-Swiss Hoke Strap White
     Okay, so much for the shoes! We also bought this white Converse shirt at Rookie USA because it's on sale. For every cash payment transaction, buyers can score Converse and Levi's shirt for only Php 200. The original price of this shirt is Php 600+. What a steal!!! I'm not sure if the promo still applies until today though :(
OOTD: White Walls
     Last look how white this K-Swiss Hoke Strap sneakers because it looks different right now. Not that white white since Kenzo wears this more than twice a week. It's a bit hard to maintain white sneakers especially if an active kid wears it. Expect that it will get dirty every now and then. 
OOTD: White Walls
     More than the maintenance of white sneakers, I'm happy that I've chosen this classic style. Simple yet stylish and wearable. Hope that Kenzo's feet will grow a little slower than the average rate. I want him to really enjoy wearing this sneakers because it's easy to style and yes, it's comfy too. This is Kenzo's outfit of the day (OOTD) when we visited KidZania Manila weeks ago and witnessed the launch of National Art and Design Academy.

Until here mommies, let me know what you think of Kenzo's White Walls OOTD :)

Good Times!~
