Public Service: Artistically Tristanne

You might be curious as to why I titled this blog post as Public Service.  Well, I personally think that I am doing the public a favor by introducing them this super duper talented and artistic lady who goes by the name of Tristanne. 

I am always in awe when I see her Facebook posts about her doodles, sketches, drawings, creations, or whatever you want to call these works of art.  I can’t help but press the like button.  I have always been a FAN!

Come Father’s Day, she gifted her dear father a pair of hand painted shoes.  She made the white slip ons her canvass.

You can see that the characters she painted had full semblance with the original ones.

Her parents couldn’t be prouder.  

Then she posted another pair of hand painted shoes.

A wacky Odie and Garfield but still looked awesome.

And then she played with her mom’s old branded bag and the result was just as amazing.

There’s always that one person who will be first.  This next bag is the first commissioned bag Tristanne did and she will have that privilege forever.  Especially when Tristanne, in the nearest future, is already well known in the industry as one talented artist.

So there, you have seen her work and for sure, you’re asking these questions in your mind.  How can I contact her?  What design can I ask her to do?  Do I have an old bag or even a new one for her to use?  Bag or Shoes? 

You may contact Tristanne through her Facebook Page, Tristanne Yasay or through her Instagram, @Tristanneeee.

This girl is just starting out but I am pretty sure that she will go a long way.  

So proud of her!  Go contact her now before she gets too busy!

I Found It on Galleon.PH

Have you ever wanted something but it’s not available here in the Philippines? Now is the time to rejoice as I have stumbled a new shopping place online! is an online shopping website and most of its products are those hard to find here in the Philippines.

I must say, they have a wide selection of things, from regular toys to high end bags!!  They divided these products into 13 categories.


I have been browsing through these categories and there are some things that I am eyeing!  Definitely gonna buy these when I get husband’s approval.

First on the list are Lego toys for my kids.


It’s almost summer so I would like to build a beach house!

Another thing that caught my eye is this!


Jumbo Plastic Eggs that you can customize like those in the Egg Surprise Videos in You Tube!  I’m sure my daughters would love this!  Too bad it’s out of stock as of the moment!

Lastly, after choosing some toys for the kids, I need to choose something for myself too!  And this is now on my Wish List!


A Gucci in Red! I fell in love with this bag the moment I saw it! has many features and these are in my top list.
1)  Prices are all-inclusive and they take care of shipping, customs and taxes.
♡ no need to worry about hidden charges!

2)  Ships nationwide and delivers via air (6-12 business days) and sea (35-40 business days).
♡ after a few clicks, you won’t need to lift a finger anymore, just wait in your doorstep until your package is delivered!

3)  Has efficient customer care. With that, buying and shipping of items not on their website can be requested.
♡ since they specialize in products not found in the Philippines, you can also request for products that are not found in their website!

4)  Has multiple payment modes.


5)  Has a “ship my item” feature where in act as a PO box service but you don’t get charged shipping fee by the box but on the item itself.

Shopping: Cherry Shaw

If you want to do your grocery shopping quietly and without the hustle and bustle of a very crowded supermarket, then this supermarket’s for you.

Cherry Shaw is newly opened, just last October 2015, so I think not everyone knows about it yet.  When we went there a few days ago, I only saw a few people shopping. 

Imagine having a number of aisles all to yourself.  That’s how few the people were. 

Another factor is that it’s super clean.  Shiny floors, new shelves, new stocks, almost everything is new.  Even the guards by the parking lot are so courteous.

This is really the place to do your grocery shopping.

Take a look at some of the photos I was able to get.





Another plus for us is the super new CARts for children.  They have 3 designs which vary in sizes, just choose one suitable to your child.


Cherry Foodarama has been acquired by SM Investments from the Ong family. Cherry Foodarama has been in the business since the 1950s and is considered as one of the pioneers in this line of business. They have been known for their low prices for both local and imported brands.

Why don’t you check it out?

Shopping: Shop at SM, Get a Free Lipstick!

I went Christmas shopping with my mom in law the other night and we got a lipstick powerbank for free!  You have to spend at least Php 4,000.00 to be able to avail of this. 

This Lipstick Powerbank comes in a Metallic Pouch inside a Pink Plastic Packaging.


It looks like a real lipstick, only a giant one!  It looks so elegant with its black color.


When you remove the cap of the lipstick, the pink part has an On and Off button and it’s where you plug the USB Cord which is also included in the package.


It’s a Lipstick Powerbank with 3000mah.  It’s one of the most beautiful and practical giveaways or freebies I have ever had.

And it’s a Plus because with or without the freebie, I have always loved shopping at SM!
