Loc&Stor 24/7: Secure, World-Class Storage Space for Rent in Manila

The most wonderful time of the year is almost here! Malls are styled in their own grand Christmas decors, bazaars sprouting all over the metro, carols constantly being played, and parties with friends and family members - all these make my heart full!

In our house, we use our good ol' big Christmas tree and just decorate it with different stuff each year - recycling the cute ones from before, and buying new ornaments for that fresh touch! My mom also gets at least 2 new hanging Santa Claus every Christmas, so our ceiling looks extra joyous. 

After this season, storage is our ultimate dilemma. We ask ourselves then: where do we place the horde of possessions we didn't have the heart to discard? Our rooms are quite packed, and the previous Christmas storage won't fit the new items anymore. Lol!

Just recently, I discovered a 24/7 self-storage facility in Manila! Have you ever heard of Loc&Stor?

Loc&Stor is a world-class self storage facility, providing secure, convenient, and professional storage units for rent. They are currently located at flood-free areas in Pasig and Makati.

What's nice about Loc&Store is that they're open 24/7, and can also be accessed even on holidays. You can also use the unit either for business or personal belongings. Definitely a huge help to keep your home or work space clean, attractive, and spacious!

Loc&Stor offers units ranging from 1.5-square-meter lockers that can fit eight balikbayan boxes to 18-square-meter jumbo-size units that can accommodate the contents of a 40-foot container. 

We'll probably give this a try! ;) It can be our best buddy for decluttering this 2019, don't you think?

Anello: All About Customization and the 90s (+ A Giveaway!)

Since anello's opening in Manila last year, this Japanese bag brand has become one of my favorites when it comes to style and functionality. My first anello bag's in leather and brown, and I've been using it alternately with the one I showed in this Youtube episode

Just a few days ago, anello unveiled their holiday collection called "discover my anello" which is all about self-discovery, finding your style, being functional - pieces that will work perfectly for you.

For Autumn/Winter 2018, anello introduces a new selection of bags inspired by the patterns, designs, colors, and materials of the 90s. Definitely the best era for me! ;) From the rebellious coolness of grunge to the polished and preppy high schoolers, the pieces are a modern nod at one of fashion's most important periods.

The signature anello backpacks and Boston bags are rendered in autumnal plaids, tartans, and checks, adding layer and dimension to both modern minimalism or maximalist street style outfits.

Aside from the 90s collection, anello has another line perfect for gift-giving. The new backpacks come with interchangeable straps that can let you mix and match colors to create the perfect finishing touch for every ensemble. 

The bags are available in neutrals - gray, black, and navy - and a medley of straps for the love of customization.

If you want an even more personalized experience, you can have your (or your recipient's) initials embossed onto the signature anello patch. So nice!

Here are some more new arrivals for their Boston bags:

They're truly unstoppable in throwing out lovely pieces!

Oh, and by the way, I'll releasing a giveaway on my Instagram account (arnievillanueva_) this week! Please stay tuned if you want your own anello bag! ;)

You can purchase anello's 2018 Holiday Collection at all 36 anello stores nationwide. For more information, visit their Facebook page and follow them on Instagram.
