The Gift Filipinos Deserve This Season

Criticized about how commercialized it has become, gift giving has kept economies bustling every December as families honor each other's relationships with tangible offerings and there is nothing bad about making the people we love happy.

For busy working professionals, shopping has become a dreadful chore that is why online shopping sites have sprouted up guaranteeing convenience to the flustered Filipino consumer. These may teach us delayed gratification as packages arrive two to three days later, but you can never put a price on time you've saved that you can use to attend to the more important things in life like family and career than wasting time driving through traffic, being bombarded with confusing choices and long lists, going head to head with other aggressive shoppers, lining up to the counter and don't even get me started about having these wrapped.

Introducing Pose Fashion

Pose Fashion is an online shop for accessories like bangles, earrings and necklace and crocheted swim wear. It is open for transaction nationwide. It caters to women who want to look good but don't want to pay a fortune for it.

My sister, Tisha, owns the online shop. It all stemmed up from her vision that all women have the right to look good and don’t have the time to go to the mall and its pricey shops and stalls. You could say that she is a self-confessed fashionista and quite good at that. She may not be the best looking image but she is the embodiment of women empowerment and I support her in this venture.
