Holiday Wear from Sheinside

"It's the holidays... It's the holidays... It's the holidays..." I have been hearing a lot of Holiday songs being played where ever I go and it kinda makes me realize that Christmas and New Year is just a few days away! I just love the holiday season because the mood is always happy and festive. I also get to see my family and friends for a lunch or dinner; some of which I haven't seen in months or years. The weather is not that cold yet, just yet, but I know it'll be soon; and it will add up to stir more of that holiday atmosphere for sure!




Have you already done your Christmas shopping? Gifts for family, friends and colleagues? Yes? Good job! How about you holiday outfits for the tad to many parties you'll be attending this holiday season? Not yet? Don't fret! Sheinside.com has prepared a Holiday Wear Collection where you can find the dress that you might want to wear on your family reunion or college friends get together or annual company party. You can also give them as gifts if you like!

Discount Evening Dresses 2014 by DressV

The upcoming holidays will definitely trigger a lot of parties, get-together, even birthdays and weddings.  It is most likely that some of these events will require you dress up and look your best. If you’re attending a party and/or dinner get together especially if it is the annual year-end company celebration, I am sure you want to look your best especially if you’re receiving a recognition for a job well-done for the past work year. 





If it’s a formal dinner with friends or a major family reunion done in a hotel ballroom it best to look great as well, at least what you look like or what you’re wearing will be the talk of the town instead of your current life status.

Cyber Monday Shoes Deals at Ericdress

I have always been insecure with my height but as I grew older I realized being petite isn't as bad as it sounds or looks. Well, to be honest, there are things or jobs that really require someone to be tall and there are a lot of things that a taller person can perform when he/she is blessed with the height. But then there are also a lot of advantages of being petite, for one you don't have to worry about your jeans not falling at right length (hehe); if you're on vacation and visiting caves, it is so easy to go through it without the fear of bumping your head. You also don't have the worry to find a mate that is taller than you and you can buy clothes from the teen’s section at the dept. store (lol!)




Nowadays, being petite is not an issue anymore. We petite girls can always wear high heels and wedges to add some much needed height and also add some confidence in us too. Whew! Thank goodness for whoever invented high-heels and wedges! Wearing footwear with heels or wedges already gives the illusion of being taller than you really are; because they elongate your legs.

A Touch of Silk

I have never worn luxurious underwear my entire left. The closest thing to a luxurious underwear  especially bras that I have tried is La Sensa. If you always come to my blog to read my posts, you probably can remember that I created entries about Casasilk.com, I got nothing to do a couple of hours ago and browsed through their products, they don't only cater to silk beddings, silk camis and silk sleepwear but also silk underwears. I got intrigued on how it would feel like to wear such luxurious bras. Basing on the reviews, silk underwear is some of the softest and most comfortable underwear available in the market today.  




Women who want to wear silk underwear, that feel like they're barely there, love wearing silk bras.  Gosh, I wonder how it would feel like to wear a bra made of silk. It would probably be super soft and silky touching our skin. Silk underwear comes in elegant designs in a variety of styles and patterns and may have adornments like laces and ribbons. They mostly come in a lot of colors and prints that can express one’s personality.

Your Hairstylist Accidentally Cut Your Long Locks Short?? No Problem!

I've got a new hairstyle but it was all accidental. I thought of having my hair dyed into a much darker shade of brown so that I won't be bothered with the black color of my roots as my hair grows longer. So I asked the hairstylist to give me a medium dark brown and trim the hair. The color did turn out fine, just the way i wanted it. BUT the trim was not a trim but a cut, I mean a big chunk or portion of my hair was cut by the hairstylist.




The last time I had my hair this short was when I was in grade 5, for 25 years my hair is long. So I was kind of appalled when I saw the finish product. Nonetheless, I was convinced it looks great; I needed the change of look. It wasn't so drastic though, I didn't end up with pixie-cut hair but then again I miss my long hair.

Winterize Your Nails

Even though it seems that fall has just begun, winter is on its way! To get ahead of the frigid season, Julep think it is important to prep our nails for the cold weather to come!

Patio Vera Restaurant: One of Marikina's Hidden Gem

Although I love to dress up and I like stylish stuff, I was never the extravagant type. If I can find the save versus spend item, even if I have extra to spare, I’ll definitely go for the “save”. I am also the same when it comes to spending for special occasions, I would rather spend some quality time with my family and a few friends over a great lunch or dinner out and I don't think I would ever throw a huge party and invite all the people that I know. As I mature, I have come to a  realization, for most aspects of my life, that quality is more important than quantity. I’d rather nurture quality over having a lot of relationships. Which was also  evident in the most important occasions of my life.




So for my 30th birthday, I decided just to have a late lunch with the people who I love the most in this world, my family. I decided to treat them in Patio Vera Restaurant in Marikina. Not only that I was intrigued by this place after seeing it featured in one of the local TV shows, it is also very near to where my family lives. What enticed me to try Patio Vera was the beauty of the place and the story behind it. I’m a sucker for restaurants with great ambiance. Although it is just a plus point, I love if the place is well-decorated and is very Instagram-friendly. I think it does something to the entire dining experience.

Indulge Your Closet with Sheinside

Ah... how time flies. The holidays are coming and so are the never ending holiday parties. i know many of you are already thinking what you're going to wear for these parties and get-togethers. As for me, I'm all set. I have done my outfit shopping already so I can avoid the queues at the shops and the mob of people flocking to the malls, don't forget about the heavy traffic going to the establishments too. If you hate what I just mentioned, well, you have another option. Why not shop at the comfort of your own home? There might be a lot of sales going on at the mall, but there are also alot of online stores having their own sales, which makes you avoid the cons of the holiday rush.




I think it's cheaper to buy online, because you don't have to worry about gas, parking and food expenses while you're at the mall shopping. As for me, I have seriously gained trust in online shopping that I rarely buy my outfits at the stores anymore. If you have been reading my blog posts, you know that I often shop at Sheinside.com and this is one of the online stores that I truly love ad trust. They have some of the most amazing pieces that I've never sen being sold at our local malls and bazaars. Sheinside also hold alot of sales and discount every now and then so it gives you more opportunities to save while shopping.

Cheap Lace Wedding Dresses From Dressv.com

When most of us are so busy with the upcoming holiday season, I know someone out there in the world is thinking about something else… a bride preparing for her wedding next year. When all around her is thinking what presents to get and what outfits to wear for the holiday parties, this bride is busy browsing the web (or Pinterest perhaps?) for ideas that she wants for her wedding and looking for that perfect wedding gown that she will wear as she walks down the aisle for her wedding next year.




And then the moment came when I had to choose what design I should get for my wedding dress. Since we had a 1920’s inspired wedding, I had so many options since our theme veers towards a vintage style. I considered a dress with lace appliqués or a dress with a lace bodice because lace is always associated as something vintage and timeless. But our budget and time was so limited that I ended up dropping the idea of having lace accents on my wedding dress. But if we had enough time and ample budget, I would have gone for it. I don’t think that there’s a girl in the world who doesn't love to own a dress made of lace, what more a wedding dress made of lace.

Sexy in Silk

I have never worn luxurious underwear in my entire left. The closest thing to luxury underwear that I have tried is Victoria's Secret. If you always come to my blog to read my posts, you probably can remember that I created entries about Casasilk.com, I got nothing to do a couple of hours ago and browsed through their products, they don't only cater to silk beddings, silk camis and silk sleepwear but also silk underwears. I got intrigued on how it would feel like to wear such luxurious underwear. Basing on the reviews, silk underwear is some of the softest and most comfortable underwear available in the market today; they are great everyday wear as well as sleeping.




Women who want to wear silk panties that feel like they're barely there love wearing thong panties. But if you ask me, I am not a fan of thong panties, but I know a lot of women who wear this type of underwear because they are great when wearing tight or fitted pants where an underwear lines are very obvious. Silk underwear comes in elegant designs in a variety of styles and patterns and may have adornments like laces and ribbons. They mostly come in a lot of colors and prints that can express one’s personality.

My First Glamour Box Unboxing

I’ve learned about Glamourbox about one of the beauty bloggers that I follow and was convinced to subscribed to it because their boxes usually contain mostly well-known and high-end brands and members have the option to get the previous months boxes if they are still available. Just like with BDJ box, I don’t really subscribe to it monthly because I really don’t like the idea of receiving items that I don’t like or I will not be able to use; that is why I only availed of BDJ’s Elite Box once because you know what you’re getting (which you can read about it HERE).




I browsed through the previous boxes of Glamourbox and saw that the October box contained Belo Nutraceuticals Glutathione + Collagen capsules and Collagen Powder Drink. I immediately knew this is the box that I wanted. I am suffering from a bad case of cystic pimples lately and is undergoing derma treatments to keep my acne problems at bay, and last month I was able to avail from Sample Room 10 capsules of Belo Nutraceuticals Glutathione + Collagen capsules and 14 sachets of  Collagen Powder Drink samples and I must say that for only 1 and a half weeks they have helped in improving the condition of my skin.

4th Quarter 2014 Sheinside Wishlist

I love the month on November, not only that it’s my birthday month and that I am supposedly a Valentine baby (I was probably conceived at around the time of Valentine hehehe), it is also because it signals the full-speed-ahead of the holiday season. And truly, it is the most wonderful time of the year, except that my allergies are also working double time during this time of the year…




Anyway, since it is my birthday month and it is special to me I am making a wish upon a star... kidding… well I just wanted to share with everyone the wishlist I made my favorite Sheinside items from their early November New In Collection:

Hair Woes? Regain Confidence the Natural Way with Wigsbuy

I have always wanted to cut my hair short because I am kinda tired of sporting long locks because of the tedious process that I go through everyday just to keep it looking great. On some days I really like to see what I would look like with shorter hair without actually cutting my hair because I am too afraid to cut it short and if it doesn't fit me I have to go with the ordeal of waiting for it to grow back again. But thank heavens for wigs since it gives us the ability to change our hairstyles and look without really doing anything but wearing wigs.



In the world that we live in, wherein synthetic products proliferate the market, we always want to use something that is natural or more so the real thing. Have you guys heard of human hair wigs or remy human hair wigs? Yes they are made of real human hair so that the wigs look like it is really your hair. But don't worry these real human hair has gone through rigorous inspection and proper processing before they are made into wigs.

Beat The Holiday Rush

Can you already feel the spirit of the Holidays? Well I already can! On my way to work, I’ve seen a lot of establishments and homes who have put up their Christmas decors. Almost all the major cities in Metro Manila have also decorated the streets with lanterns and Christmas lights. And I bet many of you are already starting to write down their Christmas shopping lists and the people you want to give gifts to.




As for me, I have started buying some Christmas gifts already, even if my birthday will come first hehehe. Well, I don’t want to get caught in the Christmas rush, with all the traffic and swarm of people at the mall; Christmas shopping can get very tiresome. That’s why even for my holiday outfits, I have already started buying them and mostly through online shopping.

Sleep in Luxury

Whether we want to admit it or not, most of us and most of the time, we take for granted the quality of sleep that we get. And so is what we wear when we sleep. Are you the type who will wear what you wore the entire day to sleep? Or change into PJs or an old oversized shirt? Well I am guilty of the latter, sometimes I just used an old-worn-out-oversized shirt to use as my sleeping clothes but most of the time I changed into a tank top and a short before I go to sleep. They are not the most comfortable sleepwear, I guess, because I always wake up during the time that I am supposed to get a good night sleep.




But have you guys thought about wearing something luxurious when sleeping? Say perhaps silk cami and short sets? I wonder how it would feel like wearing something so soft and comfy while sleeping. I think it will greatly affect my quality of sleep. I have browsed online for some sexy and upscale sleep wear but never had the chance to buy one for myself, but since Christmas is just around the corner, I think I’ll be adding that to my wishlist. You know, owning one pair of luxurious sleep wear once in your lifetime wouldn’t hurt. And at least you can say you sleep like a princess a couple of times in your life.

Black Friday Outfits on Dressve.com

Last night when I stepped out of the house to go to work, upon opening the door a gush of cold air hit my entire body and it made me shiver and realize that Christmas or the Holidays is already here! Too bad I was in such a hurry that I didn’t bother to go back and get a cardigan or jacket to help me keep warm as I walk the street to hail a cab. I say whether we like it or not, the spirit of the holidays is enveloping the whole world already.




Well, if you ask me, I am excited about it. November makes us realize that the festivities are about to begin, my birthday falls on November too, then December which will be my sister’s birthday after that it’s Christmas and New Year. There will be a lot of gatherings and reunions for sure and not to forget the annual office year end parties across globe. Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Boxing Day will also be celebrated in the US, so yeah there’s going to be a lot of reasons to dress up and put on your heels and best foot forward.


Sport a Celebrity or Supermodel Hairstyle with Wigbuys.com Black Friday 2014 Sale

I have always wonder why celebrities have super volumized hair when almost everyone of us most often than not, have the same amount of hair in our heads or almost the same thickness. Even if I apply volumizer to my hair and curl it to the max, I still can’t achieve that Victoria’s Secret-model-super-volume-soft-curls-hair. Then I found that most of these celebrities use a couple of hair extensions to volumize their manes. Although I haven’t had the chance to use hair extensions to achieve that gorgeous and full of volume hair do but if given the chance I definitely jump right into that opportunity.




Since the holidays are just around the corner, I know many of us will be attending tad too many parties left and right. I know that most of these we need to dress up and look good, complete with well done makeup and hair do’s. So, if you’re opting to somehow change your look, especially if you have shorter or denser hair, I think using hair extensions would be the way to go. Think about Anne Curtis’, Maja Salvador’s and Kim Chiu’s hair styles, or how about Jennifer Lopez’s, Kim Kardashian or Beyonce’s super full volume curls? Wouldn’t it be awesome to sport a hairstyle exactly like those of the celebrities I mentioned on your family reunions, office year-end parties or heck, even just simple gatherings with friends. For sure you’ll be getting a lot of compliments from friends, office colleagues and loved ones because of your upscale look.

The Luxury of Silk Chemise

In modern usage, a chemise is generally a woman's garment that vaguely resembles the older shirts but is typically more delicate, and usually more revealing. Most commonly the term refers to a loose-fitting, sleeveless undergarment or type of lingerie which is unfitted at the waist. It can also refer to a short, sleeveless dress that hangs straight from the shoulders and fits loosely at the waist. A chemise typically does not have any buttons or other fasteners and is put on by either dropping it over the head or stepping into it and lifting it up.





Whenever I see a chemise, I always associate it with lingerie or something sexy. A chemise can be used as an undergarment or as a luxurious type of sleepwear. I have been wanting to own one that I can use under a pretty dress like what Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf does. Or as a sleep wear perhaps like what I’ve seen Victoria’s Secret Angels/Models have been modeling.

Sheinside's Thanksgiving Sale

Even though it is only in the US that Thanksgiving Day is being celebrated I love it when it is Thanksgiving! Since I work for a company that caters to US-based medical insurance clients, we follow their timezone and their holidays too. So during Thanksgiving and Black Friday I don't have work! Woot!





So what is Thanksgiving Day anyway? Well according to the ever trusty Wikipedia, Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day, is a holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November. It became an official Federal holiday in 1863, when, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of "Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens", to be celebrated on the last Thursday in November. The event that Americans commonly call the "First Thanksgiving" was celebrated by the Pilgrims after their first harvest in the New World in 1621. This feast lasted three days, and it was attended by 90 Native Americans (as accounted by attendee Edward Winslow) and 53 Pilgrims. The New England colonists were accustomed to regularly celebrating "thanksgivings"—days of prayer thanking God for blessings such as military victory or the end of a drought.

Leather Bomber Jacket from Cocofashion.com Review

A few months back, I did a write up for one of the leading online Asian Fashion clothing store, Coco Fashion, which you can read here: COCO FASHION: ASIAN FASHION AT ITS BEST.  Coco Fashion is a Hong Kong-based web store who caters to both men and women and offers a wide range of apparel, accessories, bags and shoes. They aim to give their clients fashion at its best. Coco Fashion presents an exceptional lineup of Korean, Thai, Chinese, and Japanese clothing that can match any fashion style. From casual to formal wear, their online clothing store has everything to complete your look. They  have dresses, blouses, blazers, tunics, pants, and leggings for women. Their collection also includes a wide range of jackets, shirts, and trousers for men. They are one the best place to find that stunning outfit for an upcoming party or comfortable wear when you go out with friends for the weekend.




They were nice enough to give a gift card as a remuneration for my previous write up about their business, which I can use to purchase any item for review. Most of their items are cheap and at the time I ordered, shipping was still free. I chose to get the Brown Leather Full Zip Trendy Stand-Up Collar Asian Jacket. It was above the amount of the gift card that I received so I did pay the remaining balance, but  I must say that the prices of the items from Coco Fashion are very affordable.

My Big 3-0 Birthday Wishlist!

My birthday is coming in a few days and the it is the big 3-0 coming... Yep! I am turning 30! I know many girls dread the time when they turn 30, but I am not one of them. I know it's so cliche to say that "age is just a number", but who cares if you're turning 30? I know I don't, besides, I stopped counting my age when I was 24! Here's true story, everytime I answer a form or something like that, as long as it's not a legal form I always put on the age part: 24 years old! Hahahahahaha! Well, age is one thing and your attitude and outlook in life is what makes you feel and look young. I agree with Taylor Swift's song that goes: "I dont know about you... but I'm feelin' 22... everything's gonna be alright..."  Yeah!? That's the attitude!




Anyhoo, I've came up with my 30th Birthday Wishlist, I dont want a big or surprise party, I'll probably have just a simple lunch or dinner with my family, but this post is just a hint to anyone who feels like giving me a birthday present on my bye-bye-calendar-age. Lol!

Sleep Like Royalty with Casasilk

I love to sleep but my current work and other things that I get busy about doesn't permit me to sleep as much as I want to. Although as much as possible I made sure that our sleeping room would be the most  relaxing place to stay in our apartment. That's why even if we dont have them poshiest place to live we made sure that we get a comfortable sleep especially when our world is turned around because we work at night and sleep during the day.




Nothing is permanent in this world and we thought we can live with our old bed and beddings for a long time until we started feeling uncomfortable and not having a good sleep at all. That's why when we had the chance, we bought a good spring mattress and we constructed our bed from scratch.
