While we’re all excited to spruce up the home for the holidays and head to the mall to shop, we’re sure you’ll agree when we say that no one’s looking forward to hours on the road and long lines at the mall. Worry not, our November issue is filled with stories that can keep you company—so make sure you grab a copy or download the digital version to keep it handy. Take note of these features that will surely help you forget the holiday rush:

Fashion blogger Laureen Uy's home feature

Known for her blog Break My Style, Laureen Uy lives in a three-bedroom condo filled with colors and prints. We absolutely love her compact yet charming kitchen, the relaxing bedroom, and the dining area that her friends truly adore. The reason why? You have to read the issue to find out!

Home stores you need to visit for must-have finds

We have to admit, shopping for furniture is both a challenge and an adventure. If you're too tired to visit the malls, we have three must-visit shops that you need to check out. You may want to start at Lady Scott Jones—a spacious furniture showroom located at Metro Club, Estrella Street, Rockwell, Makati City. Be mesmerized with the pieces available, most of which showcase wood and a lovely European touch.
