Bright hot summer and 36 degrees under the sun, who needs a tan? Don’t lose the faith and pair your pique salmon or white shirt with trunks from Love Brand & Co.’s Spring / Summer 13 line.

Flying to Busuanga, Bali or Boracay?  I dare you to show off your legs with the perfect length and the best cheerful prints or keep it straightforward with basic stripes – 
(stripes, Solid or printed - you choose! There's always one for everyone!)
you don't really want to be eaten by the turquoise sea and die a humiliating death.

Love Brand & Co., the prestigious beachwear company, is pleased to announce Ben
Robson as the new face of the Spring Summer 13 Campaign.
Ben Robson, who is part of the next generation of British acting talents, will star in
“The Dark Prince”, the vampire movie directed by Pearry R Teo.
“I had a great time it was a really amusing shoot and I loved the locations in Abu Dhabi. It has been a pleasure to work with Love Brand & Co. and to become its new face”, said Ben Robson.

Directed by the Creative Director of
Love Brand & Co., Oliver Tomalin, the new campaign’s photo shoot took place in Abu Dhabi at the iconic Yas Viceroy Hotel Sky pool, above the Yas Marina Circuit F1 race track.

Tomalin selected this main location for its dynamic, flowing and curved shell as a
modern and fresh backdrop for his new collection of timeless designs, referred to by
the designer as “The Modern Classic”.

I love my schnauzer, Nonno and what better way to show their beauty other than with these pair of dog cufflinks from my favorite shop in Manila, AC +632. 

These pair of fine cufflinks in gold are the perfect accessory for someone who wears gingham, oxfords and plaid daily.

The past few weeks have been crazy - countless interviews, more interviews and running around trade halls with my camera and my trusty Moleskine, pop-up art galleries in the park, functions, launches  and last weekend’s Songkran party – when do I ever sleep?

I have been doing practically the same thing ever since I got out of college a few years back and no, I’m not complaining.

This week’s calendar is starting to fill up and it’s just the third week of the month.  Booked, harassed but who cares when you’re working with an inspiring
eco-warrior, GQ Men of the Year (2007) a modern-day Ferdinand Magellan with an environmental slant, author and eco-adventurer all packed into one - David de Rothschild!
My jaw literally dropped – he puts his British banking-heir status to good use when he founded Adventure Ecology, an eco-expedition group that “promotes respect and responsibility for our planet, its environment, species and peoples by developing a greater connection with nature and an understanding of the planet’s greatest challenge: climate change,” according to TakingITGlobal.
De Rothchild’s most recent incredible adventure? A 129-day journey across the Pacific aboard the Plastiki, a catamaran built from 12,500 recycled plastic bottles, to raise awareness of marine pollution. Hah! Now, that's something!
Who said you can’t help the environment and look good at the same time?

Catch him as he shares about his expedition on board the Plastiki on April 20, Saturday 11 AM at the Manila Hotel.
Next stop, the island! *time to lose some errr more weight*
