Pirates and Fragrances

22 May 2011

I am the queen of maximizing time ♥ Last Friday I was at TriNoma for a movie-date and to attend the launch of Tomato's new fragrances.

The movie-date was a spur-of-the-moment decision; the event was at 5PM so I needed to kill 3 hours more since my shift ends at 2PM. My officemate Ali announced he's going to watch Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and before I knew it the decision to tag along with him together with Garri, TL Paul and TL Carlo was made ;D

Top - Cotton On | Inner bandeau top - YRYS | Jeans - Tutuban Centermall | Ankle mesh booties - PILL | Bag - Tomato
TL Paul, TL Carlo, Ali. Garri was behind them, playing Star Wars Racer ;D
TL Carlo is my boss and he is awesome. He also reads my blog. Hello TL! :)
The movie started at 3:40PM so we played in Timezone while waiting :)
It sucks that I missed the last 30 minutes of the movie because I had to be at the Tomato event already, but it's okay. I guess I'll just wait for it on DVD. Johnny Depp is so funny as Captain Jack Sparrow. I love him!

Let it be said that I LOVE TOMATO! And I am not just saying that because the event was sponsored by them ;) Tomato is my go-to store when I need something. Whenever I visit one of their branches I am bound to find something I like. Proof? I got my purple ballet flats, leopard-print dress, blue-green halter dress, swimsuit, shades, and new "everyday" bag from them ♥

The event was held to launch their newest fragrances: Oohlalicious and Vavalicious.

You can't go wrong with pretty packaging ♥
I had the pleasure to witness the ribbon-cutting and mingle with Tomato's owner Ms. Leny Dionisio and marketing manager Ms. Karen, special guests, and fellow bloggers.

With Ms. Leny Dionisio
With Aie, Melai, Earth, Azkals Anton del Rosario and Yannick Tuason, and Miss Earth Air 2009 Sandra Seifert
I actually wanted to buy the same dress she's wearing here, but seeing how great she pulled the look off, how can I possibly compete right? :D
Melai and me with Jam who invited us to the launch.
New blog-friends Tatie, Jen and Kai
Photo grabbed from Tatie's blog :)
After the ribbon-cutting we were ushered to the restaurant across the store, Superbowl, for a buffet dinner. I loved the dynamics of the conversation during dinner wherein we talked about the impact of blogging in the Philippines these days.

Yummmmm!
After dinner, my blog-friends and I trooped back to Tomato where we took photos of the stuff on display and tried on some clothes.

Wristwatches and shades
Summer isn't really over yet with these bikinis, colorful espadrilles, and candy-colored tops.
They also offer a nice selection of bags and a wall dedicated to pretty accessories.
I love this color combo :)
We were given P1,000 gift certificates to spend and Aie and I had a hard time deciding which to get because of the variety of choices available to us! In the end, I chose to buy a pair of zipper earrings and a sea-green wallet to replace the one which was stolen. It was a pleasant surprise when I saw it has a removable chain-link strap so I can use it as a sling bag :)

My Tomato loot.
The wallet costs P450 only, while the zipper earrings cost P150. I added P100 to the P500 gift certificate so I have P500 more! :)
New fragrances by Tomato ♥
Oohlalicious and Vavalicious
Notice the cute charms included. They double as cellphone or bag charms.
I am going to blog about the new scents more on my next post. For now, I would like to thank Johnny Depp for being an amazing actor, and Tomato for satiating my appetite for all things pretty, all the time ♥
