Exploring Possibilities: Adidas Vulc Explore Mid

I have discovered that the best way to de-stress on a Monday with a full schedule e.g. 6 meetings, different locations, from north to south, is to wear new clothes. 

Instantaneously, I felt good after getting my new Lacoste Long Sleeved Top and Sleek Pants from the paper bags which I held on to with my dear life (Both were the last of their kind when I stumbled upon them on sale...yup, serendipity). 

I felt better though when I took out my new pair from Adidas to go with it.

The Adidas Vulc Explore Mid.

I chanced upon this gem while on vacation in Hong Kong.

I knew immediately that its sleek, pastel colored looks will greatly blend well with my growing collection.

So without batting an eyelash, I got the pair immediately. 

Last one. My size. :)

And now that mid cut pairs are gradually rising in the fashion trends...timely indeed. 

But I believe though that with its stylish look, it'll never fall off the chart. 

I've never been a conformist anyway, so who cares?

I just want a stress-free, totally busy Monday.:)

I told you it works.:)

Best when taken with Tully's Non-Fat Iced Latte with Two Splenda. Haha!

Try to explore that possibility. 

With the Adidas Vulc Explore Mid. :)

Long Drive with the Nike Solar Soft Thongs SL

Long drives can be very stressful, not to mention tiring.

Imagine the stress brought about by racing with other speed monsters at the NLEX or SLEX.

The pressure to keep up with these beings only add up to the physical drain brought about by the long drive.

No one wants to have leg cramps or smelly feet. 

So during my recent trip to Subic, I decided to drop my usual pair and go with my new discovery.

It pays off to visit the outlet sores in the vicinity. Chanced upon this pair at Nike.

The Nike Solar Soft Thong SL offers a barefoot-like experience.

Check out the screaming "squeeze me" sticker on it.

And giving in to its claim is but easy. 

                                                  Promise. Super soft.:) Ergo, super comfy.

Don't you just love the cool vibes it emits?

Timely for summer indeed...and for my long drive.

Note that these pics were taken inside my car before changing gears. Haha! 

Check out my look after switching to these terrific thongs.;)

The Nike Solar Soft Thongs SL definitely made the long drive...a comfortable experience.

Looking forward to new adventures.;)

Next level style: Skono AWL1003SP21 SKY

Oops....another falling pair from the heavens (and yes, the picture was meant to be like that to illustrate the point...ako na ang on-strat, haha!)!

Such a wonderful treat for a busy me!

Heaven-sent indeed from Skono.

This skyblue pair can give even the trendiest slip ons stiff competition.

Falling...in love with this pair was made easy with its unique look and comfortable insoles. 

Take note, after much analyzing, I figured out that No. A actually was a slang pronunciation for Norway, Korean style. Haha! Try it.;)

Feels like walking on air. Looks divine.

And now, finally, it's mine!

Check out my chosen look with this pair.

Oh, can I just say I am so digging my white tiger jacket as well. Haha!

Love your own. :)

Loving my Skono AWL1003SP21 Sky.;)

Purple is a Favorite: Adidas Forum Low RS

I just realized that every time I go out to get myself a new pair of shoes, chances are it will be in the shade of purple. 

Yup. I'm one of those Purple People errr, non-eater. Haha!

Name it and I got it: purple pants, ipad sleeve, car seat covers, office...err yeah. Almost everything I own.

So when I chanced upon this lovely pair on sale, I never did waste any time.

The Adidas Forum Lo RS.

In heavenly shade of purple.:)

Well you might argue that I have enough purple pairs with me...but guys, this one's different (like what I can say for my other pairs in the same shade.haha). 

It comes with complimenting black stripes that give it an edgy look. 

Skater guy looks perfect for leisurely strolls.

Check out those cool straps.:) 

And at 60% off, no guilty feeling. 

Too much purple wouldn't hurt.

Especially if it looks as fierce as the Adidas Forum Lo RS. :)

Purple Power!

Discovering Riovana: A Heightened Experience

 I got really excited.

And that's an understatement.

You see I recently got invited to take a peek at the latest retail store in the block:


So I wasted no time in preparing my outfit for the said event. 

Of course, I am always prepared. 

My chosen pair is the one from Pedro. 

My first one from the said brand.:) Got it from Vietnam.:)

A yellow and blue number that emits a happy and elegant vibe at the same time.

Such an eye candy!

But apart from its yummy color combination, I also adored its denim skin.

Casually trendy. 

It would definitely go well with my ensemble.

See for yourself.:)

So off I went to the said event.

I found out that Riovana was actually the brainchild of Coach Rio Dela Cruz, one of the institutions in the running industry to date.

The name itself was lifted from the owner's (Rio) and nir(VANA), which means a state of enlightenment and transcendence.

Coach Rio's vision is to actually provide a heightened experience for all runners and enthusiasts alike by providing each and everyone the proper tools, knowledge and facilities essential for running.

I was greeted by a street-inspired facade. Quite unique.:)

Of course I still had to register like the others to get my loot bag. Haha!

Then I saw this lady running like crazy on a seemingly harmless treadmill. 

Apparently, this will be the start of the Sole Journey.

She was demonstrating the Gait Analysis, a 3-cam set up that allows one to find out the perfect shoes to match one's feet and running style.

Believe me, there are plenty to choose from! 

Sole Searching from this point here on. :)

Well apart from footwear, Riovana also carries apparel brands...


sports nutrition...

and of course, water and energy drinks! Haha! All in one store! 

But mind you though, Riovana perhaps is the only retail store that has its own locker room/shower area and members lounge. 

Proves to come in very handy before and after attending marathons. No need to go home sweaty. Not to mention smelly. Haha! 

Ooh goody. Shower looks inviting.:)

With internet access and a very active community board to keep one busy.

Loving it here already. But wait till you get to the second floor.

Sole Healing: An area dedicated to providing various post-run treatments.

A recovery center in a Retail Store! 

Now that's a relaxing treat!

There was a short talk afterwards and a much-awaited raffle.:)

Of course, lady luck wasn't on my side that night. But hey, who cares?

I had a great time. :)

No doubt, after all that I have seen and experienced, Riovana is indeed the Sole (soul) of Running. :)

Check out Riovana at the following addresses: Ground Floor Active Fun Building, 9th avenue corner 28th Street Bonifacio Global City near Honda BGC and at the 3rd Floor of the Regis Center Building, Loyola Heights, Quezon City in front of Ateneo De Manila University.
