When you don’t go out, you contribute to flattening the curve. As much as we’d like to just be at the comforts of our own home, we run the risk of eventually depleting our essentials — food and clothes alike.
Staying at home might be our new normal, but no one can stop us from buying clothes. After all, it’s our human right to have adequate clothing.
Thankfully, The SM Store helps you shop your essentials through their brands — SM Woman, SM Men, and SM Youth — at the comforts of your home.
What is considered essential clothing?
Underwear, sleepwear, loungewear, activewear, protective outdoor pieces like shirts, jackets, and hoodies, and even PPEs are considered essential clothing.
You can preview essential items by joining the Viber group Stay-At-Home Essentials. Products will be constantly uploaded and updated depending on their availability.
How to order
You can shop at ShopSM.com, avail their Call to Deliver service by messaging your preferred SM Store branch or by messaging their brands on social media.
There is no minimum purchase required for customers. When you order, expect a response or confirmation from 9AM to 4PM. You can pay via credit and debit cards, bank transfers, or cash-on-delivery.
Delivery time might differ depending on your location’s regulations and restrictions. For other details, you may contact SM Woman, SM Men, and SM Youth on their respective social media pages. If you’re inquiring about a certain product’s availability, you may call your nearest The SM Store branch.
Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon 2022: Freelancer’s partner
A glimpse of freelancing life
Being a freelancer means you have to stay conveniently connected on-the-go. Some people think it’s all carefree days and not much work. While sometimes, that can be true, you don’t get to enjoy that flexibility without putting in hard work first.
To shed some light on this and clear up common misconceptions, I want to share a sneak peek of a day in my life as a freelancer. I will be taking along the latest Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon designed on the Intel® Evo™ platform. Hopefully, you’ll see why it’s the perfect laptop for those looking to elevate their freelancing career.
Power and portability made handy
Freelancing offers a very flexible lifestyle as long as you make sure all the work gets done. To get my creative juices flowing,I like exploring new places to get inspiration for fresh ideas. That means, portability is an important consideration for the gadgets I use for work.
The newest Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbonis ultra lightweight (968grams to be exact) and ultra-slim (14.mm thin), making it super handy. It also easily fits my 13-inch handbag along with my other things.
What’s most impressive is how much power it packs despite its petite frame. Like the earlier version of the device we reviewed nearly two years ago, this one’s also an Intel® Evo™ certified machine. The Intel® Evo™ badge signifies the perfect combination of features and technologies, tested under everyday conditions for an exceptional experience that lives up to its expectations. That means it’s been tuned to deliver the best of Intel.
The one I’m using is specifically powered by a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 2.1Ghz processor. It even has 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal SSD storage. It literally has more power than I need in such an easy-to-carry body. Exactly how I like it.
Display that’s easy on the eyes
I find early mornings to be my least productive hours. So, to help me get through them, I check my email and phone messages while having a quick brunch. It helps that the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon’s PureSight Display makes skimming through my inbox easy on the eyes. The laptop has the usual TÜV Rheinland low-blue light certification which the brand achieved through the Eye Care Mode feature that reduces the blue light emitted by the screen. This goes a long way in protecting our eyes.
The display also has a silky smooth feel and flow to it. The 90Hz refresh rate on the 2.5K (2,560 x 1,600) screen is just lovely to interact with. It really helps make scrolling through web pages and documents feel smoother. The aspect ratio (16:10) is just about the sweet spot for working, helping boost my productivity even further.
Practicality and the ‘lifestyle’ aesthetic collide
My energy usually peaks mid-day so this is when I usually set online meetings and presentations. I enjoyed the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon’s anti-glare matte finish display because even in bright sunlight, I experienced no issues with my face reflecting back at me. It also helps that it has up to 400 nits of brightness making the screen visible even in brighter environments.
The matte moon-white color is stunning and complements all my other things. I feel a little extra presentable during meetings because of its minimalist design.
While I typically stop working at 4:30PM, I don’t shut down my laptop just yet. I often check back in, respond to emails, and sometimes get back on the laptop to do a little more work before calling it a day. I’m stunned at how quickly Yoga Slim 7i Carbon switches on the moment you flip the lid with no need to press any button.While the device doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner, it is equipped with Windows Hello face-recognition using the webcam.
Having to work at different locations, it also helps that Lenovo has thought about privacy and security. One of my favorite features on the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon is the Smart Presence Detection. Essentially, it knows whether I’m still looking at the laptop or not. When I need to step away to get my refreshment fix, the display automatically locks and it also unlocks just as easily when it knows I’m done going AFK.
Durability and flexibility assurance
The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon is a barely-there laptop, perfect for those who have to carry their laptop around all day. Lenovo says it offers military-grade toughness, too. This is based on the nine tests that the company has undertaken, including drops from a 76cm height, dust-resistance and the laptop’s ability to withstand extreme temperatures. Impressive stuff.
While bigger can be better for others, I prefer lighter. Even a well-designed smaller, lighter laptop has its struggles somewhat to shift heat over a well-designed larger one. So yes, there is at least a slight performance hit related to this laptop’s design.
With the 3-Year Lenovo Premium Care and 3-Year Accidental Damage Protection that also come with every purchase, you won’t have to worry about taking your device to service centers should you encounter problems since Lenovo offers 24/7 chat and on-site support.
Hassle-free, smooth workflow anywhere
The Lenovo Slim 7i Carbon seems like an ideal choice for those who want a reliable hybrid work computer. It’s small, lightweight and has plenty of power to let you complete most everyday work tasks.
On top of that, it’s also a stylish yet minimal device that fits nicely into most working (and non-working) environments. Based on my limited hands-on time with the device, it’s a solid machine for modern-day workers including myself.
It’s tiny but powerful and it’s perfect for my life as a freelancer. With its long battery life and innovative features, I’m not worried about my efficiency despite juggling multiple tasks.

I get a lot of “what does a freelancer’s day really looks like?” so here’s a glimpse of my day. I usually adjust my schedule depending on what’s on my plate. Portability is so important to me especially when working outside. Thankfully, i get to work with the newest Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon.
I bring this anywhere when i decide to settle in for a few hours of work. It’s super handy and ultra slim. It fits in my 13-inch handbag. It’s tiny but has all the power that i need! It’s designed with an emphasis on portable productivity, just how i like it.
I find early morning time to be my less productive hours. I just check my email and messages while having a quick brunch. I have most of my energy during mid-day and this is the time when i usually set meetings and presentations.
It has a compact 13-inch QHD resolution lay-flat display. And not just that, look how stunning it is with its moon-white color. Really love it!
I do more content editing in the evening. For some reason, the internet connection is much faster during this time.
While bigger can be better, i prefer lighter. As they say, good things come in small packages. The yoga slim 7i carbon is tiny but powerful and it’s perfect for my life as a freelancer.
With its long battery life and innovative features, i’m not worried about my efficiency despite juggling multiple tasks.
Having the right laptop for what i do means getting optimum results. It combines peak performance, ultra-portability, and smarter features. With it, i’m pretty sure i can slay any task that comes my way.
Uniqlo’s Fall/Winter 2022 Collection: Here are our favorites!
As we approach the cooler months of the year here in the tropics, Uniqlo’s Fall/Winter 2022 Collection also arrives on our shores. Pieces that you can layer up on a stormy afternoon or when you decide to hop on a plane to experience lower temperatures elsewhere.
Giving a whole new meaning to the classics, Uniqlo has updated some of the most well-loved items that have stood the test of time, holding up against trends that come and go.
Jackets can actually be warmer without taking up too much space in one’s suitcase and easy to stow away in a backpack when the sun does decide to shine. Knitwear drapes more beautifully on the body with the use of technology called WHOLEGARMENT which creates their 3D Knit line.
On the sustainability front, Uniqlo is also producing jeans that require less water, jackets that are made from recycled down, and fleece spun from plastic bottles.
Designers Ines dela Fressange and Hana Tajima continue to release collaborations with Uniqlo for this season. For Tajima, tea-length dresses in jewel tones dominate her line. Dresses that can be worn on a gloomy day and taken directly to an evening event.
Meanwhile, dela Fressange returns to the idea of the uniform, creating classic pieces with a modern feel that one can wear over and over again. And who says florals are only for spring? A long-sleeved, collared dress in one of dela Fressange’s signature French blues features red and white flowers.
The UniqloU line is coming up with a collection of genderless essentials. Outerwear in boxy silhouettes and roomy proportions that would look flattering on just about anyone. The U Pocketable Long Coat in a neutral camel shade is a minimalist’s dream come true.
For their graphic T-shirt (UT) line, Uniqlo is re-launching a collection from its releases over the past two decades. This, in recognition of their timeless appeal.
UT was first launched in 2003 and as the line nears its 20th year anniversary, we’ll also be reunited with well-loved designs we will now have a chance of owning again. Shirts that feature art from Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat are among the 18 designs that are making a comeback in stores.
The Uniqlo Fall/Winter 2022 collection hits branches in the Philippines this Friday, 9th of September.
