OH YES, IT'S JOHNNY - Johnny Litton (The Philippine Star) - June 16, 2017 - 4:00pm

The Swarovski Crystal Society (SCS) recently celebrated its 30th anniversary in the Philippines. Many crystal enthusiasts, some of whom have been members since its inception, gathered at Rustan’s Makati to look at Swarovski’s special edition pieces. Every five years, the SCS honors the timelessness of the crystal by creating Jubilee Editions that commemorate the occasion. The SCS Annual Edition 2017 is called Bear Arcadia, a tribute to the bear mother, a strong and powerful yet caring and protective animal. Members of the SCS were able to enjoy the privilege of celebrating with the brand and purchasing the special edition, exclusively available to them. Seven of their loyal members were also awarded, making the celebration even more memorable.   Swarovski is exclusively available at Rustan’s Makati, Shangri-La, Gateway, Alabang, and Cebu.

More Than Skin Deep

Cosmetic surgery has always had a stigma attached to it. Most people have qualms about having surgical procedures done, but for DARE founder Dr. Jean Marquez, this should not always be the case. “Contrary to what most people think, cosmetic surgery [is more than just about] empty vanity,” Dr. Jean said. “Some people need it because of an inborn condition, some because of an accident, and some just want to look and feel better – nothing wrong with that.” In fact, the stunning doctor rebranded her clinic from The Skin Specialist to DARE (Dermatology, Aesthetics and Restoration) because she wants to communicate her mission to help patients gain more confidence by giving them natural-looking results through services that go beyond what is skin deep. DARE is located at the ground floor of ESNA Building, 30 Timog Avenue, Quezon City, and is open from Monday to Saturday, 10am to 7pm. For inquiries, contact 374-8087, 374-1076 and 0917-8101319.

Of good food and good company

Friends of the well-loved Solaire matriarch Josie Razon got together to celebrate another wonderful year of Josie’s life. Gathered by the lovely Minerva Tanseco, the guests, in prints and floral motif, were treated to a delightful degustation specially prepared by Solaire’s special events restaurant Waterside Restobar for lunch. Everybody had such a great time bonding over good food that lunch was extended to an afternoon tea.
