Sigh Styles for Beautiful Horizon 2nd Edition Brochure

Beautiful Horizon had just celebrated its momentous first year anniversary on October 19, 2014 and I am glad that Sigh Styles have played a part behind the making of their 2nd edition brochure.

To date, Beautiful Horizon (BHI) has already 2 branches here in Cebu City, the first store is located at the 2nd floor of  Colonnade Mall in Colon and the other branch is in Mandaue City.  BHI had also opened branches outside of Cebu as they are already reaching out in Cagayan de Oro, Davao, Tacloban and Iloilo.

Sigh Styles was tasked to style for the product shoot of I HEART U Teens Cologne.

Add caption
 The cologne is specifically targeted for the teen female market and comes in 3 variants: PURE HEART (red), SWEET HEART (pink) and CLEVER HEART (violet).

 The model / endorser is the 14 year-old daughter of the general manager of Beautiful Horizon. She flew in from Manila just for the photo shoot.

 The selection for the outfits of this photo shoot is based on the color scheme of the cologne variants and also complementary to the description of each variant.


BTS of the photo shoot...

 This outfit is initially intended for I HEART U - PURE Heart variant: 
the look uses a monochromatic color scheme, accessorized with pearls to add elegance

 PINK is the best color for the I HEART U - SWEET Heart variant as the color is always associated with feminity, youthfulness, being precious and favored.  Pink is also the color of princesses, hence the accessories had to include a tiara and added with the glitz of the faux diamond blings.

 This outfit is head-to-toe purple, as the I HEART U - CLEVER Heart variant is tainted in this hue.  The look is a melange of geek chic and girl-next-door.  It calls out, "I'm young, hip, trendy and smart!"


The red knit skirt is a no-brainer indication that this outfit is for the I HEART U - PURE Heart variant.  The off-whitish color is apparent but the supersaturated red color is a stand out.   Pearl embellishments ensures the whole outfit to be classy and refined.

 I HEART U Colognes are exclusively distributed by Beautiful Horizon.  Go to the nearest BHI store near you or contact your dealers now. For those who do not know any BHI dealers, you can order the colognes from me, post your inquiry / order in this post or email me at sighstyles@gmail.com

Hong Kong 2014

Went to Hong Kong last month for a business trip and captured the region with a 10-megapixel digital camera, with apologies for some of the grainy photos.

This is my third time to step on the soils of Hong Kong, but my first time to explore the place thru the MTR.
from Yau Ma  Tei station (red)  in Kowloon to Tung Chung (yellow) as we were heading for AsiaWorld-Expo in Lantau island
Also hopped on to this double-decker buses from the airport to Nathan Road Kowloon via A-21 City Flyer and vice versa.
Tourists and locals shopping at the Ladies Night Market in Mongkok, Kowloon.

A view of Kowloon from our room on the 17th floor of City View Hotel located along Waterloo Road.

This white patent leather flats with embellishment was bought at Ladies Night Market at a price of 120 HKD during this trip and was worn on the first day of the exhibition that we attended at AsiaWorld-Expo.

Strolling at the Avenue of the Stars while we wait for the Symphony of Lights show.

Souvenir items sold at the Ladies Night Market.  Bought a Hong Kong bell as requested by my sister (it's her collection)

The famous and lively Nathan Road.


Cable cars in Lantau Island

Every time I travel, I always see to it that I get to buy a pair of shoes.  What attracted me most are these platform shoes and sandals. And so I did bought one platform sandal, as posted HERE.


When was your last travel to Hong Kong? Share your stories...

Sigh Styles Promotes - Origami Topiary by Rotessa

Hi.  I am back for another promotional post for an individual with an ingenious, visionary mind and skillfully adept hands.  This time it's for a close friend of mine.  Her name is Rotessa and she is the brains behind R2S Origami Creations.


This is the new creation of R2S Origami Creations by Rotessa.  
This is actually called an artificial topiary, but can also be called "origami topiary" as the flowers are in origami.  This is quite extraordinary as the ray florets are made of paper but the disc florets are actual lollipops ( I'm not promoting the brands of the lollipops).


 This origami topiary can actually be given as a unique gift or can be used as centerpieces for special gatherings like birthday parties with candy land or fairy land concepts.

You can order the exact style of origami topiary as in the pictures or you can have it customized according to your concept.


If you are interested to order this origami topiary, you can email me at sighstyles@gmail.com and I will certainly connect you to Rotessa.  You can also directly contact Rotessa at this number 09235544641.

And you might have remembered my other  posts mentioning about R2S Origami Creations, do check out my posts HERE and HERE for their beautiful and crafty works.

Tinky Winky Chronicles

This post is not about fashion or style.  I am sharing you my precious gem that has somehow been a lucky charm since the day I decided to welcome her into my life.  She may be another ordinary being, but she is special to us.

I have always been happy just by seeing a cat.  My very first pet cat was back in my kindergarten years. We named her Jinky.  She was able to spent a couple of years with us and have given birth to a number of kittens, which were either forcefully thrown away by our neighbor or have gone amiss and lost. I really could not remember when did Jinky left us and possibly she may be dead by now.

January of this year, I never expected to embrace a kitten again into my life. We rescued her from her near death experience.  I remembered that I promised to myself, that if this cat will not be hit by the truck, I will adopt her.  And so I did.

Everyone, meet my TINKY WINKY!

 I do not exactly know her breed, but with my internet researches, she's sort of in between the shorthair and a bobtail breed with tabby patterns on her coat.  I guess I have to visit a vet and have her officially classified. lol :)

 When we adopted her, her eyes were still closed.  She was so fragile.  Pity and confusion (as to how will I take care of her) was overwhelming me at that time.
There's a belief that pets should not be photographed since it will lead them to their death.  I somehow believed on this since previous stray cats that came to our house died after days of capturing them with my camera.  Since I in direly needed and desired to let Tinky Winky lived longer, it took me 3 months to finally decide risking her life and had her first photo shoot.  The three photos above were taken last March 2014.  

 Tinky Winky was already in her third month from the time we adopted her in this photo, and this was the first time that she saw herself on the mirror.  She paused a few seconds staring on the image she saw at the mirror.  ("Oh, I never thought that I am cute").


On her fourth (human) month, I had another photo shoot for her.  She loves playing anything that moves when she touches it, like this dried leaf.

 The kitten that moves like a kangaroo. 

Tinky Winky at five (human) months old.
 As she grows, we have observed that she rarely ''meows''.  We thought she meows when she's alone, but we realized, she do not know how to do that sound.  I have read that cats do make several vocalizations but there are only three major categorization of the sounds that they produce.

According to Wikipedia: 
Schötz categorised vocalizations according to 3 mouth actions: (1) sounds produced with the mouth closed (murmurs), including the purr, the trill and the chirrup, (2) sounds produced with the mouth open and gradually closing, comprising a large variety of meows with similar vowel patterns, and (3) sounds produced with the mouth held tensely open in the same position, often uttered in aggressive situations (growls, yowls, snarls, hisses, spits and shrieks).[2]

Tinky Winky becomes more special since she only knows the 1st and 3rd kinds of sound.  She's such a silent type.  Some expert vet says, it is normal for cats to be silent and not meoow.  
 We tried to teach her the meoow sound, but we did not exert extra effort to do so.  We just allowed her to be it, to be silent and special.

Tinky Winky at seven (human) months old.
 According to www.catster.com:
A popular misconception is that cats age seven years (in human years) for each calendar year. In fact, feline aging is much more rapid during the first two years of life.
A cat reaches the approximate human age of 15 during its first year, then 24 at age 2. Each year thereafter, it ages approximately four "cat years" for every calendar year. Thus, a 5-year-old feline would be approximately 36 in cat years.
Note: It should be remembered that a cat who lives outdoors ages far more quickly, perhaps even twice as fast, than an indoor cat.
 The illustration below helps you calculate your cat's age. (www.catster.com)

This is the latest photo of Tinky Winky.  She's in her nine (human) months = 12 cat years now.  She has finally grown into an eligible cat.



We usually bathe her once a month and chain her afterwards so that she will not get filthy.  When her coat is fully dried, we send her back to her cute wooden abode, shackle-free.








Hope you enjoyed reading about Tinky Winky and getting to know her. Do keep coming back for more of her cat chronicles.
