|THE PERFECT FIT. Browse photos and take pictures with just one swoosh of the wrist through the Air Shuffle technology.|
As the two ever-changing worlds of fashion and technology have grown more competitive than ever, we have come to realize that the key is, “keep up or be left behind.” Interlinking individuals through the power of mobile technology has tremendously become more of a need than a statement of luxury, similar to the case of fashion where trends come and go and modern consumers are always on the prowl for the next big thing.
The two are undoubtedly united by key elements to thrive: innovation and democracy. With constant reinvention remaining as the driving force of these worlds’ operations, the clamoring market has been granted access to their needs and wants.

Aiming to make a dent in the tech-savvy market, O+ brings in revolutionary partners for the young and young-at-heart who are always on the go.

In this unique collaboration, O+’s young ideals mesh with the 25-year tradition of excellence and ingenuity established by Bench/.
|KEEPING IT CONNECTED. Signal strength, Quad Band, 3G and WiFi connectivity keep Joseph Marco linked to his family, friends and even fans.|
With the guiding principle of sharing without limits, on December 2, 2012 at the new Glorietta 1 Activity Center at 5:00pm, Bench/ and O+ are set to cultivate a new-breed of Filipino fashionistas by highlighting unsung heroes in the world of fashion—the stylists.
|DOUBLE TAKE. Dual sim and dual camera, the new 8.5 Android is armed and ready.|
A first in the country, invited are six celebrity stylists, Sidney Yap, Adrian Concepcion, Ton Lao, Myrrh Lao To, Edlene Cabral, and Kate Paras, to compete in an exemplary display of creativity, vision, and technique. Each stylist will head a team of make up artists and hair experts to produce five (5) coherently-styled looks fusing elements derived from Bench/ and O+. Each collection will be judged on creativity, originality, and relevance to the theme. To judge the competition are esteemed names in fashion and entertainment: top designers Randy Ortiz and JC Buendia, Manila Bulletin’s Liza Ilarde, Preview’s Vince Uy, Philippine Daily Inquirer’s JJ San Juan, Philippine Star’s Christopher De Venecia PMAP President Phoemela Barranda, and Bench endorser Joseph Marco.

November 29, 2012 will surely be a date to remember in the Philippines, and maybe in the whole world. To celebrate the new Glorietta, they are holding the biggest fashion show with 2,500 models to break the world record for the Most people modeling on a catwalk!
I have heard this outrageous idea about a month ago and thought, “Is it really possible?”.
Days gone by and before I know it, some of my friends are already joining the fashion show. Ok, so these are not my model friends, they are normal people who are gonna walk the historical runway. I was like, “For real???”.
It was very hard to believe that my normal friends are gonna walk the runway because I can only imagine what the show’s gonna look like. But then again, if one’s gonna think of it, no one can really pull off a 2500-model fashion show anywhere with perfect models. That’s why maybe it was “Most PEOPLE modeling…” rather than “Most MODELS modeling…” (redundant).
As I hear it, normal people will be getting freebies while some models who will be walking for brands will get as much as 2k each. Also, models, or those who will be walking the runway, will be doing their own makeup. I don’t see anything wrong with that though. And here’s the biggest tip, a worldwide dance phenomenon will be doing a performance after the fashion show. Can you guess who it is?
It’s gonna be a super fun show for sure because my friends are gonna be part of the it and the whole world will be watching as well.
The event will start by 5pm Manila time at Glorietta Makati.
See you there!!!

This random girl proves why Filipinos are the best singers in the world.
Our boss shown it to us yesterday because it was a trending story on Facebook. A mysterious petite girl was belting Jennifer Holiday’s famous song “And I am telling you” as if she was competing in an international reality show. We were all left asking, “Who could this fantastic singer be?”
Just watch the clip and be stunned yourself:
We were all convinced that she could beat American idol runner up Jessica Sanchez any time.
As it turns out, her name is Zendee Rose, a 21 year-old singing contest enthusiast from General Santos city.
We’d be thrilled to see her sing that same song with Jessica Sanchez ala Jennifer Holiday duet!

The next best thing to having straight teeth is having white teeth.
But with the very expensive cost of teeth whitening, is there a cheaper way to do it?
YES! The answer is just in your very own kitchen – BAKING SODA!
You might have heard it already but yes, baking soda is the cheapest and most effective way to whiten your teeth! I have tried and tested it myself. (That baking soda on the photo is just P12! which you can use for months)
1. Wet your toothbrush with water and dip it into the baking soda.
2. Brush your teeth as you normally do.
3. Rinse your mouth completely with water. Make sure to gargle your throat as well.
What I personally do, I still use regular toothpaste and sprinkle a dash of baking soda on it so I can use it more often because if you do the normal way (above), you can only do it for only twice a week.
I used to have straight teeth when I was young til I reached my 20’s when they kinda moved a bit so with teeth whitening, people notice how pearly they were than how distorted they are.
I am just saving up for my braces so I’d have perfect teeth already!
Good luck and enjoy your white teeth!
