Last January 24-26 had been a blast. Phnom Penh Designers Week had just recently presented 3 days of fashion show with the theme: Reinvention of Tradition at The Plantation Hotel. as a fashion blogger, I was privileged to attend the 3 days of glitz and glamour. What did I witness? Read on.


It was an honor to have been invited in the fashion shows by one of the designers who is also a Filipino designer but based here in Phnom Penh, Don Protasio. The three day fashion show was participated by 12 designers. Read my previous post about it HERE.  I will be featuring each of the designers I witnessed during the event. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend the Day One due to conflicting schedule. However, I will be sharing with you the runways during Day Two and Day Three.

Here's the first installment. First designer is Armada.

“Armada” by Reynier Necesario Abello
“The concept of my collection is mainly based on the Spanish Armada. I was inspired by a painting of a Spanish captain, and my love for theater and drama: I see this concept to be an avenue for me to show and express my passion on that area and translate it into clothes.”

Feast your eyes on the photos.

Armada's collection here is truly high fashion. Not everyone can wear them but they are wearable in public. The black and white colors give out a rock and emo-like kind of vibe. I would love to wear any of the sets but I wouldn't dare wear the headress in public.

My friend and highschool batchmate is a USANA member and gave me samples of one of their skin care line product- Sense Beautiful Science. She gave them for free for me to try it out and make a review about it. Below are the set of products sample packs I received.
She gave me 3 packs of the sample sets.


Each of the sample pack contains a manual instruction insert and 5 sachets of each of the basic sets of the product line. First from the top Gentle Daily Cleanser, Hydrating Toner, Daytime Protective Emulsion, Perfecting Essence and Eye Nourisher. Each sachet contains 2ml.

Quick Review: Mistine Cosmetics Thailand

Mistine is a direct selling cosmetics company from Thailand. It is my first time to hear and try this brand when I came here in Cambodia. Mistine is very similar with Avon where in they have a wide range of products not only for beauty concerns but also for health and home and lifestyle.
I have seen independent sellers for this brand on facebook but they were mostly for pre-order basis as they will still be coming from Thailand. I had tried posting orders from one famous online shop but didn't get good results as they had me waiting but nadda. Nothing came. And then finally, I found a visible and tangible cosmetics shop that sells Mistine items-----> Lum Orng Cosmetic Online Shop. I went ahead to look for the address. As soon as I entered the shop, a lady with a warm smile welcomed me. Chovy, Lum Orng's sister (owner of the shop), showed me all the items and let me try them all with the testers. Since then, I have been a regular customer of theirs because they're custo…
