Wishlist: Skinny Distressed Jeans from Zaful

Are you a skirt or a jeans kind-of-girl? As for this lady right here, at the moment, I am a jeans person for a lot of reasons. One, I get cold easily that's why I need to wear something that will keep me warm and comfy all day long at work. Second thing is that it's a no-brainer when I can't think of anything to wear. It's my default bottom attire most of the time. I just throw in a chiffon blouse and a jacket and I am good to go for work. 




Third, I don't have to worry with every movement I make when I am in jeans unlike when I'm wearing a skirt or a dress. When donning a skirt or a dress, I would usually wear a pair of shorts underneath so if some accident happens, I won't flash and people won't see my undies LOL! Lastly, I like to put my feet up or do an Indian sit at my work station especially if I'm struggling to keep awake (which I always do) and I can't do that if I'm wearing a skirt or dress.

SammyDress Haul 3 + Review

Retail therapy is a girl's best friend, besides diamonds (doesn't apply to me that much but it sounds nice to write or say it hehe). When I'm burned out but I can't escape the real world and go travel, this is somewhat my default stress reliever. Whether I'm browsing through the store racks or online and whether I'm buying stuff or not, just looking through pretty stuff, I think the stress is somehow lessened.




Don't get me wrong or judge me by the get go. I am not materialistic nor is my entire pay check being spend on stuff. It what it is, after all, I am just a girl. Looking at a dress wishing it will fit me and magically become mine. Haha! Anyway, here today sharing with you all my latest haul from Sammydress. Technically this is not a haul, "haul"; as I bought these pieces on separate occasions. They just arrived almost at the same time. So I thought I'll just review them all as if they're from one order.

Dressing For All The Seasons Of The Year

How time flies so fast… It seemed like yesterday we were all just celebrating the start of the New Year, then there was summer time, and the next thing you know it’s already the cold season. We’re now in the so-called “ber” months and that signals the Holidays and then the year would be over soon in a few months... But before we get too excited, let’s not forget about Fall or Autumn.




Fall or Autumn may be short, but it is as equally beautiful as all the other seasons. Especially when the leaves turn to bright reds and oranges and they start to fall off from the branches of the trees in preparation for the winter season. Unfortunately, here in my country we only experience 2 seasons, rainy and dry season. But when it rains, it tends to get pretty cold too and the cold wind coming from the north during October to December also gives us Filipinos a taste of the winter weather. So we still have a reason to get into the bandwagon of wearing layers, sweaters and jackets.

Casual Dresses and Work Days

It's just the middle of the week but I'm already tired as hell and already bat-shit crazy wishing that the weekend can please come soon. It's not a good week for a start, because of two typhoons hitting the Philippines. It was raining so hard, not much transportation are available and the traffic is at its worst.




During times like this, I can get really grumpy. I can't stand the rain and never liked it anyway. Also I always get torn on what to wear to work if it's raining hard. At work, from Mondays to Thursdays we are expected to wear smart casuals and only allowed to dress down on Fridays or weekends (if one's shift falls on a weekend).

Artesania MNL Cafe: Art Meets Food

Whenever I am burned out, there are a few things that help me relieve stress: food, travel, art and blogging. Food, you know, that is so given ha! Even if I'm not stressed I always find comfort in it. Well who doesn't anyway? Travel, I do it as much as I can, if the budget and time permits it. As for arts and crafts, it is something innate; I would like to claim that I am very much into it, though I have to admit I have no mastery of any particular form of art.




If you'll read my profile description on the right side bar of my blog, it says there that I love sewing, arts, crafts and to DIY almost everything. It is true up until this day. My family is very into these things from my uncles, aunts and siblings, we all know and love to draw and paint. My sister paints mostly on canvas and is a fashion designer, my brothers and youngest sister draw cartoons, while I, I love to scribble, doodle, do chalkboard art and make something from recycled materials and from scratch.

This is Not A Drill! Free Whipped Services For a Month!

Hello ladies and gentlemen! I have great news for y'all! My go-to waxing and scrubbing salon Whipped, is looking to give back starting this September! Who wants free waxing and scrubbing services??? Raise your hands!!! Whipped is organizing a special offer to their clients with Free 2 Services per visit and you can avail of them on an unlimited number of visits! The promotion will start on September 15 and commence on October 15, 2017




Whipped is a beauty salon that specializes in sugar waxing scrubbing. I bet the first time you hear about Whipped, what will come to your mind is whip cream or some sort of dessert. Well it's also the theme of their branches, they don’t look like places where you'll get your waxing services; from the store logo, to the facade up to the interiors they look more like a dessert or ice cream parlor rather than a waxing salon.
