If there's anything that makes senior staff writer Steph's day better, it's a pop of color. While yellow is her absolute favorite hue, she can't help but be drawn to all other colors when they're on some fun, stylish and practical items she uses everyday. This week, we're all about fantastic shades that come in the form of bags, plushies, fabric tapes and more.

I totally wanted to get myself one of these wonderful book pouches from Bambags Canvas Bags (P250) when I saw them on Instagram. And the next best thing about them? They're customized! Just send in your high resolution book cover photo of choice and voila! A unique and eye-catching item to store your essentials in.
Are you a shutterbug or photo geek? I'd sure like to have one of these toy camera bags (P1,339), also from Bambags Canvas Bags. It lets you store your photo equipment safely, and in style. From the fabric, strap, lining and other details, you can have all these customized according to your personality.
Who wouldn't love a refreshing drink this summer? And with paper straws like these from Hey Kessy (P150 per 50 pieces), everyone will just want a sip! I'd use mason jars as an alternative to glasses for added cuteness!
"Brown paper packages tied up with strings, these are a few of my favorite things." I'd love to add that crafty touch to my presents with these bakers twine (P550 for a spool 200 meters long, P60 for minis 15 meters long and P500 for mini sets), also from Hey Kessy.
There was a time when my mom would label my things with DYMO tapes (if you're an '80s kid, you'll know what I'm talking about!) or just plain black marker. These days, stamps are all the rage! These adorable wooden stamps (P100 each), also from JAR Clothing, will be useful for both you and your kiddos this coming school season.
I especially have a liking for cute things, especially if they look like crazy cartoony characters, like the ones in Adventure Time! And these bags from Popjunklove (P500 each) do just the job. Perfect for you or your little ones!
Something that really annoys me are messy cables all plugged into one extension cord. Good thing I can keep the mess at bay with these cord monsters (P150), also from Popjunklove. Going gaga over those googly eyes!
Since I've been decorating and cleaning my new room, I've been dreaming about adding high-tech appliances. The world's first ultra HD TV, for instance, from LG, would make a lovely addition. We're talking about four times higher resolution than full HD and 84-inches of it, at that!
Even your face can be livened up with the makeup styles and hues in season! Am especially loving Laura Mercier's creme eyeliner in Canard (P995), creme smooth lip color in Palm Beach (P1,250) and Illuminating Eye Color in Sun Glow (P995).
Laura Mercier products are available at all Rustan's Department Stores.
