Private Affair: Kanebo Feel Your Beauty

Our Private Beauty Affair with Kanebo last FEBRUARY 16,2012 was nothing short of sheer perfection. We invited our chosen and happy Studio SnR friends to this afternoon of beauty and pampering.

A sneak peek into a tableau of fine Kanebo products with pretty flowers and even better skincare + new color collections. Private Sale. Beauty Makeovers. Pamper Yourself. All in 1 afternoon.

The Press Brunch at 10am onwards met these women of style. Treated to a wonderful morning of skincare knowledge by Ms. Jenny Liang, Chief Trainer of Kanebo International, editors indulged in good company and an even better hands-on experience.

Women of Style All Busy

Just a part of what Kanebo has that’s something worth looking into. From Impress Skincare to Lunasol Makeup Palettes, Kanebo knows your Beauty. Visit them at Rustan’s Department Stores. For the younger line of Kate, visit your nearest Watson’s Stores. Congratulations to Kanebo for this huge success.

Be Invited. Stay tuned for Studio SnR’s Private Events.

BHT | Bobbi Brown 11FEB2012

The third run of Studio SnR Beauty High Tea Series featuring Bobbi Brown. We warmly welcomed women from Davao and Cavite who braved the traffic (land and air) on a saturday to give themselves some ME TIME. They learned something new that day–to put on natural makeup and show themselves some love. After all, V-day was just a few days away.

Look at the bursts of color on these lippies. There’s always one color for you! Take your pick. Our choice of wonder product: Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation Mineral Powder with SPF15. It brushes on smoothly and stays the entire day. Amazing!

The Lifestyle Workshops are not complete without any treats: Our delish partner Serenitea shared awesome milk tea drinks only with Studio SnR. Check the empty table beside the sign. The drinks were gone before we could say cheese! 🙂

Delish Serenitea

Come Share this fun with us. We want to see you soon.

Profile | Tea Time with Serenitea’s Couple

Disclaimer: This is not your usual Drink Review Post ✌

In our book, Serenitea is one of the pioneers for freshly pressed tea drinks. It’s been years since this local-and-proud concept of milk tea while-you-wait has touched the discerning palettes of most Filipinos who know their tea ABCs.

Brewed by Master Tea Crafter Peterson Chen himself

Serenitea leaves an indelible mark on the lips and in the hearts of each tea drinker. Perhaps it’s the signature flavors it is known for; OR just because it uses the highest quality tea leaves and other ingredients, this brand has created a phenomenon borne out of TEA love.  Serenitea is synonymous to hand crafted tea beverages taken how you want it (choose your Sinkers or toppings) and when you want it (caution: it can be very addictive). What a lot of “milk tea addicts” don’t know -yet! is behind this much-loved brand is a hard working, simple and prayerful couple who had a dream to put a smile on every Filipinos lips with a sip of their famous drinks.

Serenitea's First Couple Juliet Herrera and Peterson Chen in one of their many travels

More than meets the eye; Studio SnR was able to meet the friendly couple, Juliet Herrera and Peterson Chen for this interview. It all started with the interest of the interviewer for all things milk tea back at their first branch in San Juan, Metro Manila, years back. How they were during that first meeting-true and relaxed, is still how they are especially with friends, staff and customers alike–no frills, just genuine. One thing we noticed is, despite the success they reached, the couple never fails to give back.  Their staff only have good words to say about the couple, from helping them be better, to advising them about the right thing to do.

QualiTEA time: Enjoying dinner like most couples

Drinks Aside. When asked how they feel towards the deluge of new milk tea places in the metro, “It only pushes us to do our best, where drink quality, customer service and personal touches are concerned. There is always room for improvement.”, Juliet smilingly and positively shares. In our books, that’s what we call vision tempered with skill and humility.
