Japan Selections Thrifting

Post Content


Thrifting has been one of our most favorite couple bonding for years now. We get giddy excited when there are Japan or American surplus stores in sight. MSM has been a very good place for very good finds like this batch of jackspot (spotted jackpot as coined by my Brian) finds.

Recently, we found a new thrifting haven in Taft, Japan Selections. Sharing to you our random but oh so nice jackspot finds, all these for under Php600! Do you have a go-to thrifting place? I’d love it if you can share them.

Pretty candelabra that just needs a little polishing.
Petite saucers that can hold pretty cupcakes or delicate jewelries.
Vase that can hold my gold pencils or spring flowers.
Gilded mini bowls, perfect for ice cream scoops!
Intricate glass container that would look elegantly pretty at my bedside table.
Two kinds of card stands that I can use for my dessert buffets.

Belo Umbrella

Summer heat doesn’t show any sign of stopping now — which is why I have Belo SunExpert Sunbrella to the rescue!

Belo SunExpert Sunbrella, is another innovation from the trusted name in beauty. This is simply not your ordinary umbrella — its fabrics are infused with Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) 50, which effectively filters out 97% of UV rays and actively reduces UV transmissions.

Not to mention its fresh design — unique dome shape, stripes patterns with frills and real wood handle, Belo SunExpert Sunbrella makes functional more fancy and fun. It matched my summer outfit perfectly.

IMG_8345dpp_1920_rainplay-eventsOne thing I love most about my events works is the fact that I have to dress up to the occasion. Recently when I and my team at RainPlay Events handled the coordination and hosting of Kyra’s debut, I couldn’t be more excited to know that her theme was inspired by The Great Gatsby. This was what I wore.


L-R: Mel Cruz (hairstylist), yours truly and Cai Guiang (makeup artist).

I opted for white, black and gold color motif for this look. Lacking an art deco accessories? No problem, I re-purposed a necklace to make a headpiece. With just the right angling and some bobby pins — voila! Instant headpiece! I love re-purposing since it widens your options with the minimal arsenal you have.

Special thanks to Steven Yap Haute Couture for my beautiful white dress (which I also wore on one of our engagement shoots).

Credits to my #GlamTeam for the day who dolled me up — Mel Cruz for my hair, Cai Guiang for my makeup and Brian Sahagun for these beautiful documentary photographs.
