Something New: Escada Joyful

Fellow fragrance lovers out there....who owns an Escada fragrance?  *Raises hand*  
Let me guess...to those who said "yes", an Escada Sport right?  *high five* 
Oh yeah, I've tried the Blue and Green bottle and sniffing either one of them will bring me back to good 'ol dating memories *wink*  And yes, it was only with Mr. AMW! 

Fast forward to several years after, who would've thought one of the fragrance brand I grew up with actually came up with a scent that is perfect for me?

No joke...I own so many Eau De Toilette and Eau De Parfum as of the moment but this fragrance brought me back to life!  I have never owned a fragrance this refreshing and new!  

The new Escada Joyful fragrance is a sparkling floral fragrance, as much as I would love to say: "Floral?  Not again!"  Well, this one is different! 

Different in the sense that this bottle, on first sniff, gives out a full positive vibe!  My mood, no matter how bad it is (trust me, it is bad these past few days!  *hint* yaya issues!) can turn into something more positive.  

AMW Reports: Veloci Opens at SM MOA + Pulse and Metro Collection Launch

The Mr. & Mrs. new watches by Veloci.  Mind you, combined price of both watches are less than Php10,000.

Indeed, it is possible to own a good, fashionable and very functional timepiece at an affordable price.

Fresh from the success of its previous collections, I blogged about them HERE.  From the Aeronaute, Voyager and Cruise collections, Veloci finally have self-standing stalls and now, with new added collections!

Veloci's Metro Collection
For cosmopolitan creatures of the night because of its fluorescent colors to its sleek, restrained face.  These are analog pieces with straightforward designs BUT trust me when I say, they can give you an "oomph" unimaginable!

AMW Picks
Don't you just love the color combination?  I forgot to include my favorite Grey and Pink combination located on the right most side on photo above! 

The Metro is indeed the watch you need if you are the type who never gets tired of conquering the city, day and night.

Even men can sport these!

Christmas Gift Ideas for Colleagues

Every Christmas season, the company I work for would prepare for Exchange Gift and the fun starts even before the gift-exchanging itself! The fun starts at Creating your own screen name (from Local actors/actresses to cartoon names, etc...) to the whole guessing game of who picked who!

Now that I'm working from home, I'm missing all office gift-giving but that won't stop me from sharing my Christmas gift ideas!  And I'm picking products ranging from Php500.00-Php1,000.00.

For the Kikay Colleague
Ah, the easiest Exchange Gift Recipient in my dictionary!  It takes one to know one --- 'nuff said!  But if you're not Kikay or you're probably a guy who chanced upon this post, well, here are some gift ideas you  may give to your "Kikay" Colleague.

If you see her into eyeliner, purchase the limited edition K-Palette Rose Scented 1Day Tattoo Liner priced at Php795.00!  She'll love this!

If she is into lip products, you may go for ---

AMW Bulletin: CBTL 2015 Giving Journal

You know how addicted I am in coffee right?
And you know how I always visit a coffee shop when I'm out even if I just had a drink of coffee inside the car on my way to wherever I go?

YES, I am addicted that way!

BUT, I'm glad my addicted can be of help!  One of my favorite coffee chain The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® has made community building and giving back critically important components of its company philosophy. Every year, in the months leading up to Christmas, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® releases its coveted Giving Journal around a holiday campaign benefiting the Real Life Foundation.  

This year, the theme of the Giving Journal is to provide the inspiration to create OVERFLOWS in one's life.  

So nice
And for you, my fellow coffee lover to help in The Real Life Foundation, here's how to avail of the 2015 Giving Journal:

AMW Cooks: "Flat" Chicken Cordon Bleu (My Style)

A "flat" Chicken Cordon Bleu?  What's that?  
Well, whenever you dine in a restaurant and order Chicken Cordon Bleu, you know it'll always be round when it comes out of the kitchen!  Because this is an "AMW Cooks" portion and sometimes, we just have to be practical, why don't we just make it flat?  I mean, there are days I have time to roll them but there are days...I just want to be quick because the Hubby will be home anytime soon!  

And guess what?  FLAT...

or rolled....they both taste the same!  Both deliciously good according to my judge! :) The Chicken Cordon Bleu expert!  Yup, they don't look professional but they taste professional daw! :P

And why do I call this MY STYLE?  Well, most Chicken Cordon Bleu dish recipes use ham while I use my hubby's favorite --- Bacon!  And...instead of the usual white wine sauce, I opted for simple home-cooked gravy because that's just the way we like to pair our fried chicken, with gravy!
