A list of my favorite discoveries amidst the pandemic and lockdown. From food businesses, to apparel, to accessories; I love them all.
The Knotty Baker (@knottybakerph), in my opinion, makes one of the best pastry and dessert to enjoy everyday! They offer various types of “knots” ranging from their oh-so-famous Garlic Parmesan Knots to their sweet and cheesy Cheese Knots. These bread knots are perfect for your everyday breakfast, merienda, or midnight snack! You know what, I cant get enough knots! Hahaha They also have a variety of desserts. My favorite ones are their double chocolate cookies and sea-salt brownies! I’m actually not a big fan of sweets but Knotty Baker desserts gives me the appetite to eat sweets all day, everyday.More details
As a Japanese food lover, I am very well aware of one of the quarantine trends, the Sushi Bake. I have tried A LOT of them and I think this small online business is one of my favorites! Introducing Bec’s kitchen. They have a variety of flavors of Sushi Bake. They have Premium Wagyu Sushi Bake, Baked Unagi Sushi, Scallops Aburi Sushi, and more! Very delicious and very affordable too! One of my favorites also is the Cream Cheese Garlic Bread! Once again, I love garlic, I love cheese, and when they put it together = heavenly. They blend the tastes so well that nothing overpowers in your taste buds!More details
Philo MNL is an apparel business I really support. Why? They have an advocacy, “to promote confidence and further inspire.” This advocacy really resonates with me because as a content creator, that is the goal that I want to give my audience. I want them to be confident in their own bodies, accept who they are, and be proud of what have they become! Philo MNL sells minimalist statement t-shirts that lets you WEAR YOURSELF. They have statements like “TAKE THAT STEP” for the goal-oriented people, “MY OWN BOSS” for the confident people, and “AND SO?” for the people who wants to chill and do not give a f**k. Very inspiring indeed. I think I have the whole collection already.More details
Ok, we have food and apparel business already. Now, lets move on to my favorite accessory discovery, The Black Box PH As a graduate from DLSU, we have this fashion culture that we have grown to love. The stereotype is that men wear gold chains everywhere they go and of course I would conform to this trend because who doesn’t love gold chains and why not? I discovered this online shop in Instagram and they decided to send me various designs, as showed in the pictures above. These gold chains embodies my style and adds a hint of swag and status to the whole outfit. Also, they have various designs of the pendants to the designs of chains. Just pick whatever resonates with you best based on your over-all fashion. Hands down to Black Box. They definitely caught my eye.More details
As I have said, I love accessories. I found this great necklace shop online who sells beaded necklaces! Its just like we’re back in early 2000’s which I love! bdbd.ah sells different types of beaded necklaces for you to wear indoors or outdoors. Its extremely fashionable nowadays, especially in my generation (Gen Z/Zennials). This trended on Tiktok and of course, when something trends, everyone hops on. As you can see in the pictures above, it is unisex and gender inclusive. Also, designs are great for casual and formal attires. I wear mine everyday and I am still loving my out of bed look with this on.More details
