Natori x Kasama Rum

This past week, we celebrated my mother-in-law’s 75th birthday, my daughter’s 10th birthday, and the launch of Natori x Kasama rum. YEP, you read that correctly — RUM! Natori is doing a collaboration with Kasama, a rum company!

Both Kasama and Natori are female-founded Filipino brands! They came together to celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month with a partnership that gives back to the Philippines. Natori designed the beautiful limited-edition rum bottle, which you can buy on Kasama’s website.

Look at the gorgeous bottle!

My mother-in-law with my kids — wearing the same print as the bottle!

Even Stevie has a matching print Natori ouftit! And check out my mother-in-law’s tall heels in the background. I wouldn’t be able to stand in them.

The whole Natori family with the Kasama lady — another Filipina!

Me and Tusia — unintentionally wearing a floral jacket — I had no idea!


Unique and fun collaboration — but love how two Filipino female brands came together to support one another!

Uniqlo / Suno

I love when designers collaborate with retailers to create special capsule collections, so when I found out that two of my favorite stores were working together to create a rad summer line, I ran IN THE RAIN to check it out. (Yep, used the word ‘rad.’) And hallelujah, it was worth it, because what I found was soooo beyond rad.

Suno, a funky, artsy, print and pattern centric clothing line created by Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty in 2008, teamed up with Uniqlo to create an inexpensive, colorful, and cool collection from May 20th (I am late) until the end of August. Pretty, floral, different, and affordable.

Birds view....not as fun to take these pictures when I am not pregnant, but a fun view from up top wearing these patterns together.

Birds eye view of top and pant….these pictures aren’t as fun to take un-pregnant.

Spearmint o fun!
