From pet fairs to pop-up beauty stores and gigs, here are a few things to do and visit if you have nothing planned this weekend.

While shopping for makeup online is very much hassle-free, it's still enjoyable for some to test and swatch the products in a physical store.

Now, with the launch of Avon's all-new fun, affordable makeup line, Simply Pretty, beauty geeks can see the products IRL at a special pop-up store at Panco Café, The Podium from April 20 to 22.

Its ambassador Kyline Alcantara will also be there to join the swatch and shopping party.
