Welcome to the Family: OLD NAVY Now in Manila!

I've read in a newspaper last December 2013 that well-known brands like Pottery Barn, H&M and Old Navy will open stores here in Manila. I was excited when I read about it and even posted it on my Facebook status.




Last March 22, while I was waiting for my interview for our church's production team, I passed time by browsing through my Facebook newsfeed and saw that it was Old Navy's opening day at BGC and they are giving away free tote bags and all denim pants are 50% off!

Everyone is Born Pretty + Exclusive Discount Coupon!

I am not picky  when it comes brands; as long as I like how it looks, I will wear it. This applies to everything that I use like clothes, accessories and shoes. Even with timepieces, I live by that standard.




I am not really a fan of watches, that’s why I only have 3 and all of them are gifts. I don’t usually buy one for myself either. Last week, I received an addition to my humble watch collection from BornPretty.com, which pretty much sparked some excitement inside me.

PUERTO PRINCESA TRAVEL DIARY: The Legend Hotel Palawan

On the second weekend of March 2014, I went on an early Summer getaway to Puerto Princesa, Palawan.  This trip wasn’t supposed to happen, we really didn’t have plans of travelling this year since we are trying and planning to have a baby. And because of that we decided to forgo any travel plans and decided to start saving up instead to prepare ourselves when we finally conceive a child. But God surprised & blessed us and paved the way to allow us to be able to travel again this year. This Summer trip we didn’t spend much because almost or half of it is free! Thus we are able to somewhat splurge on food and a day trip to Dos Palmas Beach Resort.




If you were able to read my blog post regarding an invitation to attend one of Club Astoria’s promotional seminar (read about it here) you have an idea that we were granted free accommodations to their tie up hotel in Palawan.

Beat the Summer Heat #TheDumondWay

I've never been the boyish type. Being in a family who has been greatly influenced with fashion and clothing, I doubt if my sense of style would ever gear towards being tomboy-ish. My grandmother used to be a seamstress; also used to own a home-based clothing manufacturing business that was stationed in our ancestral house’s basement. She would also make our clothes when my sister and I were just little girls. My mother worked for a long time as a Quality Auditor for garment trading companies including Nike. When she stopped being an employee, she went to apparel overrun/production/buy and sell business until the clothing manufacturing industry in the Philippines slowly died down. My sister Hazel has been sewing her own clothes and creating costumes for school activities. After graduating college, she pursued her lifelong dream of becoming a self-taught fashion designer and is currently a wedding and debut couturier.




Ever since then I have also been acquainted with girl friends who are as “kikay” as me and who takes beauty  and style seriously. Girls, like me, who love to wear beautiful clothes and shoes, do their own make up, and accessorize their ensembles with statement pieces. Most of my life, I have been surrounded with people who love to be ever so fashionable and all-made-up. I heard KC Concepcion in one of her TV commercials say to “always look your best”; I like it and I’m living with that mantra. So when it comes to style, whenever and wherever, I can say that I am the girly type. I love to put on pretty ensembles even on ordinary days or even at work; especially if I have all the time in the world to think about what I’m going to wear for the day.

SheInside.com SPRING SALE

One swallow does not make a spring.
Bluebirds are a sign of spring; warm weather and gentle south breezes they bring.
In spring, no one thinks of the snow that fell last year.
Don’t say that spring has come until you can put your foot on nine daisies.
Spring-time sweet!
The whole Earth smiles, thy coming to greet.
-Spring poem, unknown author

In most parts of the Northern Hemisphere, Spring is coming. The vernal, or spring, equinox signals the beginning of nature’s renewal in the Northern Hemisphere. Spring is the time when green buds appear, birds chirp, and flowers begin to bloom. Spring time is the season of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection, and regrowth.




That is why most people do or hold Spring Cleaning around this time of the year. Those things that we don’t use are either tucked away or disposed off and replace with something new. And because of this, why not include your wardrobe while you Spring clean and replace them with new ones to rev up your Spring spirit. Well, you’re just in luck, SheInside.com is having their SPRING SALE which will end on March 31, 2014.

Must Have! Spring New Arrival Vests from SheInside.com

Summer is just around the corner and outdoors or on the beach is where most of us are headed. And the same goes for me; I’ll be going on a beach trip this early so I can avoid the influx of crowds in most tourists’ spots here in the Philippines. Not to mention classes are about to end before March says goodbye, so school kids will add to the bulk of those going for vacation. As much as possible we all want to enjoy the Summer season, and making sure, at the same time, that we’re wearing comfortable clothes. But for us girls, we make it a point to still look hip even if we’re all sweaty or getting baked under the Summer sun.




If you’re planning to go on a vacation as early as before April kicks in or on Summer’s peak days, and you’re someone in need of a wardrobe update that screams style and comfort; fate has brought you to my blog because I just recently checked one of my favorite online clothing store, SheInside.com and found something that I’m excited to share.

J. Cuppacakes at SM Jazz Makati: Art in Your Cravings!

Last Sunday, after accompanying our friend Jai to her second wedding gown fitting at my sister Hazel's place, we went to J. Cuppacakes’ branch in SM Jazz Mall in Bel-Air, Makati  to check their cakes. The couple are eyeing J. Cuppacakes’ signature nude cake as their wedding cake, which they saw on their Facebook page.




It is my first time to check out SM Jazz Mall even though we’ve already passed by this place several times. Nothing much to see here except for the new restaurants that line the ground floor of the mall. Imagine any SM Hypermart but with upscale establishments, that’s what to expect at SM Jazz Mall. Although I’m intrigued and would like to try some of the restaurants and cafes that I’ve seen there.

[Review] Nanny Rose's Queen Bee All Natural Wax Hair Remover

As you all can see, my blog doesn’t have just a single theme for all my blog post. I don’t just posts only about clothes, or only about make up or beauty products or only about travel. I came to learn that blogs like mine are called “Lifestyle Blogs”, where anything under the sun can be written about. I say this because I want you to bear with me when I do  beauty product reviews and if I do post about clothes.




My goal ever since I started this blog is to be able to inspire or somehow influence others and to help or relate to anybody.  When I do posts about makeup, brushes or other beauty/skin care products that I personally believe in or have had great experience with, I’m aiming that somebody out there (usually like me), who’s searching the net for reviews of products or services  that they want to try or avail of but are hesitant at first and wants to know what others think or what others say. I’ve had many purchases and availed of services that were greatly influenced by reviews that I’ve seen online, especially on blog reviews. Some products that I review here are samples that I availed or were given to me to try. As much as possible I keep in mind not to be biased on doing reviews, I simply say what’s ok and what’s not . But when I really like the product, I will pour my hearts out just to make a review post that would try to convince everyone to get it as well.

Fall In Love with the New Items from SheInside Pre-Sale...

I constantly check what's for Pre-Sale in SheInside.com, hoping that I can score a deal and buy something nice for half of its price. But most often than not, I don't find something that I like so much and that makes me think about it even in my dreams.




But when I visited the the PRE-SALE site/tab earlier this week, I've found several items that really tempted me to add items into my shopping cart. But before I tell you what I bought (with eyes closed while clicking the "Pay Now" button), let me tell you how the Pre-Sale works.

Clothing-dropship.com Review

Wholesale-dress.net now known as www.clothing-dropship.com is the first clothing and shoe online store that I’ve came to love and regularly visit. They offer thousands and thousands of clothes and shoes at very affordable prices. They are the cheapest also from all the ones that I’ve been checking or whenever I go web window shopping.




It was also with Clothing-dropship.com that I first ever bought something from an international online seller. I was kind of skeptic about it at first, that I must admit. Because there are some reviews about them that are not very favorable.

NEW IN: SheInside.com Haul

I do think that 2014, again,  will be a blessed year. During the first week of the new year, to jumpstart the blessings that I am continuously receiving, I won, yet again, another giveaway sponsored this time by SheInside.com.  And yes  like to think of the things I’m receiving for free as blessings and not just sheer luck.




I was glad that when I opened my blogger account and saw in my newsfeed about SheInsider’s blog post regarding the winners of their Sheinside Big Giveaway; and when I opened the post, I became even more glad because I saw my photo and name as one of the winners.

H2O+ Face Oasis Shine Neutralizing Gel from Sample Room

I recently availed of H2O+ Face Oasis Shine Neutralizing Gel from Sample Room. While looking at the list of items that I can try from the H2O+ line, H2O+ Face Oasis Shine Neutralizing Gel was the one that easily caught my eye. That is what I chose since, not only that this is what my available points from SampleRoom.ph can afford (hehe) but because my skin is problematic and it is generally oily with some dry areas.




I still have two tubes of moisturizers on hand, but that didn't stop me from getting one of the samples from H2O+. It is the first time that I heard about this skin-care line, so curiosity got the best of me. Even if I still have plenty of moisturizers to use for a month or two,  I was very willing to try this one out.
