Adding Benmore To The List of Men I Trust

Last Saturday I got to know 2 Bs to add to the 3 Js whom I trust to get me 100% buzzed!  Benmore Scotch Whiskey and Borgy Manotoc is a concoction you might want to binge on!  However, with these fine men, you have got to pick out an equally sophisticated outfit to get drunk in.  You might as well play the part right and do play it well.

I can not deadma that level of adorableness!
Yes! We all came here for hugs!
I no longer drink as much as I used to.  This I say with all honesty.  How could I when my drinking buddies have been promoted to mommy duties.  Since I am still stuck in the rabbit hole, so to speak;  While I'm still trying to figure out how deep this burrow goes,  I trod along with a drink in hand once in a rare kind of while. Semestral breaks like this one right now, tend be a string of rare whiles. ;)

My stars had certainly aligned that Saturday, as most of my evil exams were done.  The lively Eden of Chic in the Tropics, invited us Cebu Fashion Bloggers to Benmore Four Cask Scotch Whiskey Launch and Bar Tour.   She did emphasize that brand ambassador Borgy Manotoc will be there, I would be crazy to let this one slide.  Besides I was dying to meet my Cebu Fashion Blogger friends.  I will take Borgy as a side dish any day!

As a lady who drinks, I am impressed by Benmore's smooth and not too overwhelming taste. The Php 380.00 price tag is spot on for those who want to experience the exquisiteness of scotch whiskey without having to shell out a big wad.  Benmore came from Diageo, the same people responsible for Johnny Walker, Ciroc, Baileys and Smirnoff to name a few.  But hey don't just take my word for it, the people over at whiskyboys gave this scotch blend as score of 3 corks.  They even recommend it for everyday consumption.  Pretty promising for an affordable drink, don't you think?  

I have long ditched beer as my recreational drink of choice.  Im transitioning to the real deal, coz I know I can take it.  Benmore Four Cask Scotch Whiskey belongs to my stash along side Jack, Jim and Jose.

Much love and thanks to Angeli, Michelle, Mildred, Marco and Rabsin, and Issa for letting me grab the pictures!  And ofcourse to Eden for bringing us there!

The Best Outfit To Be Drunk In

No, not really drunk Drunk, just drunk-ish.  So you decide to treat yourself with some booze after the whirlwind of mind fucks you had gone through be it at work, school or at home.  Having considered the place you will go to and the crowd you will be with, it now boils down to how safe and secure you will be in your outfit.
OUTFIT. Let say you will go clubbing, do yourself a favor and show one asset at a time, lest you be mistaken for the cigarette promo girls.  Show legs, show boobies, but not all at once.  Slut is a harsh, stingy word, you don't want that.  If you like wearing those stringy undies then skip this next sentence.  I love mini dresses and skirts, but I detest the airy feel down there, so I have a habit of wearing boylegs; I feel secure that way.  Do yourself a favor and smack hard every peeping tom too!

SHOES.  How drunk you intend to be determines how high your shoes ought to be.  Your feet and ankles are way more precious than you give them credit for.  Avoid stilettos and anything else that resembles a deadly weapon instead of a goddamn shoe!

MAKEUP.  And to top it all wear shine proof, water proof, and if you can find it, sweat proof makeup.  You are supposed to peg the look at sultry and smokey not a burnt survivor of a three-alarm fire.  One last thing, stack on some rings just in case you get mixed into a bar fight.


Again take note, rape proof clothes, shoes you can stand and run on, a face that says parteeyy, and some self defense blings that will get you past the bouncer.  This goes without saying: "Drink responsibly" ;)
