Sweet Sexy 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 undies. If you always come to my blog to read my posts, you probably can remember that I created a couple of features for Casasilk.com, this company caters to silk beddings, silk camis and silk sleepwear and also silk underwear. 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.




There is a huge category of silk thongs for womens wiki from Casasilk.com, and once you slip a pair on, you may not look at your usual underwear the same ever again. Silk is a natural fabric prized for its luxurious texture but the comfort benefits go way beyond that. Silk is also naturally temperature regulating, it keeps you warm when it colds and when it’s hot or humid it allows your skin to breathe.  Casasilk’s 100% silk ensures 100% comfort and fitness. Finding the perfect pair of silk underwear is easy with a variety of women's underwear to choose from at Casasilk.

The holidays are almost over but the weather is just only starting to get chilly... By January to February it can still get a little bit cold because snow is slowly meting  to give way to Spring.

Home Improvements with CtwoTop

I have been wanting to do a lot of home improvements since we got married. Although we don’t own the place where we are living now, it's still would be nice to come home from work every day to a place where we can relax the best possible way that we can. Earlier this year we throw away our old dilapidated bed and we constructed our bed from scratch. We also bought a new mattress that is similar to the ones you can find in hotels. It was pricey but was one of the best investments that we purchased. We also bought some quality linens and bedding to further enjoy our new bed and some storage materials so we can store away our other stuff in an organized manner.




We have accumulated so many clothes over the years too that our little cabinet can’t store all of them anymore. So we decided to create a cabinet by DIY-ing again. We also bought a new TV as our Christmas gift to ourselves for working hard this year. We also added some little furnishings like shelves here and there. And our next plan would be to build an expandable dining table, folding chairs and buy a new sofa. Slowly we know we can transform our little apartment into something we can call our temporary home (of course we still dream we can buy our own house someday soon).

December BDJ Box Unboxing: Easy Breezy Beautiful with COVERGIRL

December is probably the most exciting time of the year because of the gift giving and parties and get-together that are happening here and there. I was a Grinch when it comes to Christmas back then, but I have slowly turned 180 degrees about not being excited about it; now I always look forward to this season. A couple of months back I subscribed to the December BDJ Box thinking that since it’s the holiday season, the box would be something special.




But before anything else, here’s a short info on what the BDJ Box is all about, which I have extracted from their website:

BDJ Box is a monthly beauty subscription box created to help every Filipina discover the best beauty products that suit her needs and personality. For only PHP 580 a month (around US$ 12), you get a mix of full and travel-sized products worth triple the value. Pamper yourself with this monthly surprise!

The Ultimate Luxury of Silk Scarves from Casa Silk

I remember I overheard a conversation where someone said: "I still accept Christmas gifts until January 5, 2015" and I really laughed hard upon hearing it. But you know what gifts are gifts, and anyone who will receive a gift, even if they are way beyond any given occasion, will still whole-heartedly accept it. Even me, I will still accept gifts even after the holidays are over! Hahahahahaha!




Anyway, have you encountered someone whom you have a difficulty looking for a gift to give because it seemed like that person already has everything and you would end up giving them food items – which they have received a lot already? Like your boss or a well-off relative or family friend? Well… well… well… Casa Silk is here to solve your problem! How about buy scarves online (as a Christmas gifts)???

NIU by Vikings: Up Scale Buffet Restaurant

During the past year, there have been many buffet restaurants that sprawled along the metro and they try to out run one another with who has a more extensive food selection and more posh interior and ambiance. I don’t know about you, but for me, the atmosphere and décor of a restaurant greatly influences my dining experience, especially if it is Instagram-friendly. But of course the food should be worth it too. Buffet prices range from PHP599-PHP2000++, but if you’re lucky, you can find online deals that is almost half the price of when you go or pay to the restaurant buffet directly.




Before November ended, our couple friend asked if we wanted to try the up-scale version of Vikings Buffet called NIU  by Vikings which is in SM Aura Premier in BGC. My husband and I have tried Vikings twice and we both loved the amount, selection and quality of food that they offer; so after learning that they have a higher-end version of what they originally serve then we guessed it was worth trying.  Also, buffet restaurants usually have promotions that when it’s your birthday month you either get to eat free or there’s a discount. NIU by Vikings’ current promo for birthday celebrants is that they would get a discount depending on their age and should be availed within their birthday month.

Short Prom Dresses from msdress.co.uk

For most school girls, even at the start of the school year, they already look forward to the upcoming prom and homecoming events. As early as now, I bet they’re already planning their outfits for those two major events a female high school student will ever experience.




Proms doesn’t always have to be a super formal event, especially nowadays that people are becoming more and more creative with the theme of their events, think about Garden Party, Great Gatsby, Shabby Chic, All Pastel themed-events, they’re becoming more the norm now than boring traditional prom parties. So your prom outfits need not be boring as well. If I am to attend any of those parties, I would rather be in something that represents my style well and where I am comfortable. Nothing beats genuine confidence because you’re comfortable, relaxed and able to have fun at the same time with what you’re wearing, than being in a super uncomfortable old-school prom gown.

December Greetings Sale on Sheinside

It's obvious the holiday season is upon us. Talk about the traffic in Metro Manila where even if it is not rush hour, areas near malls are bumper to bumper and inside the malls are super crowded. That's why this year I opted not to go that often to the malls to buy Christmas outfits and gifts. My solution to the worsening traffic and chaotic malls is to do online shopping. I didn't have to go out of my house anymore, spend money on gas, parking and food (of course you gotta eat after hours of walking and shopping). Long lines? Big Crowds? No, Thanks!



Wonder where I got my holiday outfits? Well, most of them I got from one of my favorite online stores Sheinside.com. They always have great promotions that will definitely convince you to shop this is because of the great savings that you'll get out of these promotions.

The Next best Thing That Touches Your Skin...Silk

Up to now, I still can’t get over the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show; I always look forward to this show every year because of the immense effort put into it, it is just so classy, extravagant and creative. Besides being my fitspiration (yeah right… lol), I really love the Victoria’s Secret models/angels, because whenever they walk the runway in super sexy underwear or lingerie, they don’t look demeaning at all. All you can appreciate is how they have turned the lingerie into something that’s worth watching. The closest thing to luxury underwear that I have tried is Victoria's Secret yet it is still not their signature collections that I have tried. But of course, if I had enough budget I would buy something more luxurious than what I have now. It’s not being materialistic, you know, sometimes we just have to reward ourselves once in awhile; besides we all have been working hard to earn a living.

TRIANGL MILLY Swimsuit / Bikini Dupes

I don’t know if you guys are familiar with the swimsuit brand TRIANGL. But this swimsuit brand has been creating such a buzz in the fashion world because of its classic styles but utilizing uncommon swimsuit materials for their product line. TRIANGL uses neoprene material for their swimsuits which is a very innovative way if you ask me because we’re so used to swimwear made only of spandex.




Neoprene is a synthetic rubber and exhibits good chemical stability, and maintains flexibility over a wide temperature range. It is used in a wide variety of applications, such as laptop sleeves, orthopedic braces (wrist, knee, etc.), electrical insulation, liquid and sheet applied elastomeric membranes or flashings, and automotive fan belts. In aquatics, it is commonly used as a material for fly fishing waders, as it provides excellent insulation against cold. However, neoprene is less expensive than breathable fabrics. The foam cells also make the material quite buoyant, and the diver must compensate for this by wearing weights. A recent advance in neoprene for wet suits is the "super-flex" variety, which mixes spandex into the neoprene for greater flexibility. (source: Wikipedia)

Prom Dresses 2015 by msdress.co.uk

I actually miss being in school, not studying per se which is the hardest part of being a student. But when you start working and you work your butt off to earn a living you will realize how much life was easier when you were still studying and just waiting for your allowance to be given to you. What I miss most about school are the activities and my classmates and professors who you become friends as the years go by.




My favorite time during school year would be during field trips and school fairs because during these times, we get to have a breather from studying and doing home works and projects. I know you thought I would say that my favorite would be the school dance or homecoming or prom. Back in high school, prom wasn’t such a big deal in our school. Gosh thank goodness, I lost all of my photos during my high school prom because I didn’t want the way I look during those times hehehe! Well, my fashion sense back in those days weren’t as fashion forward as I thought it was.

Coron 2014 Travel Diary: Day 4 No Name Bar (Pacquiao vs Aligieri Match)

Whenever we are in Coron we usually don’t go out after dinner. Coron is not a party place like Boracay, but there are a couple of well known and established bars around town that you can check out if you want to have a few drinks after a long and tiring day of activities. Iwas able to try Helldiver’s Bar the first time we were in Coron, which I have a written about and you can read it here: . You can always Google or ask your host of other recommended and well known local bars that you can go to.




On our fourth day, we didn’t have any scheduled activity anymore, since 4 of us will have to go back to Manila at 1pm. But since Manny Pacquiao had a match with Aligieri that Sunday morning, I am a big fan of Pacquiao we looked for a nearby restaurant and bar that will show the match live. Just a few meters away from Mommita’s Lodge we found No Name Bar and they will be showing the match that Sunday.

Coron 2014 Travel Diary: Day 3 Coffee Kong

The last time my husband and I were in Coron was in 2012. It has been slowly developing from a quaint town into a busy one since then, but this time around it has gotten more developed and busier than it used to be. Well, it came as no surprise, because Coron has been creating a lot of buzz and tourists (Filipinos and foreigners alike) are very eager to experience its beauty. There are a lot of new hotels and establishments that sprawled all over town, most I can’t remember if it has been there all along or were just recently built.





We normally don’t go out after a day of activities and island hopping because we were already too tired. During our 2012 trip we just walked around the town plaza and that was that. But the group that we are with during this 2014 trip seemed like they (Daryl and my sister Hazel most especially) got all the energy in the world that even after a tiring day of snorkeling, swimming and island hoping, they want to go around town.

Sheinside's Year End Back Sale!

*Sigh* How time flies.... it was just like yesterday that I started getting serious with blogging and now it has been a year since i regularly update my blog and then the next thing I know, 2014 is about to end.

Coron 2014 Travel Diary: Day 3 - Malcapuya Island

I want to come to a point in my life that I won't buy things anymore, but buy plane tickets and the only thing that I want is to make enough money to be able to travel. I have been dreaming to be a citizen of the world so that I will not be ignorant or prejudice. I want to be able to immerse myself in every culture if given the opportunity.




A few months back Cebu Pacific Airline had a airfare sale and I took the chance and booked a ticket to paradise which is Coron in Palawan. This will be my fourth time in Coron, there is something about this place that keeps us coming back for more. I have blogged about Coron during our first few visits which I will list the links below. But this time around we were with our friends and my sister who are all first timers. It is also my reward to myself and partly my 30th birthday celebration as well.

2015 Bridesmaid Dresses from PromTimes

December doesn't only mean the holidays but it is also a time of the year where many couples get married. Do you love weddings or attending weddings? Well if you ask me, I do! That’s why it is my dream to become a full-pledge wedding and events stylist/coordinator/planner so I can always witness lots of weddings and events. For me a wedding is one of the most beautiful events in someone’s life because they signify a new chapter in two persons’ lives. It’s a celebration of two people’s love for each other having their loved ones as a witness as they vow to love, care and be patient for one another for as long as they live.




Although the attention of wedding should be central to the bride and groom, we must also take in to consideration the people that surround them that made them who they are today. That is I think the foremost reason why a bridal party is included in any wedding. We didn’t have a bridal entourage during our wedding, since our wedding was a more casual and intimate one, if I had another chance to renew my vows with my husband, I will definitely have bridesmaids the next time around.

Slip Into the Luxury of Silk

Have you guys seen the latest Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show? I still haven’t seen the entire show but I’ve already browsed through the pictures and I totally love this year’s show! Especially that Taylor Swift looks like she can blend in as a Victoria’s Secret Angel right? Have you seen her photos when she sang a number and was also wearing lingerie? I am digging her silk chemise, silk robe and feathered shoes ensemble, super sexy right?





Whenever I see a chemise, especially the satin or silk ones, 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 strutting down the runway of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show over the years. A chemise is generally a woman's garment that vaguely resembles the older shirts but is typically more delicate, and usually more revealing. 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.

Shop Your Holiday Outfits at Sheinside

Christmas is very near and people are starting to get busy every minute doing their Christmas shopping for gifts for loved ones. I know many of you are exactly doing just like that, but have you  already thought of what to get for yourself? We tend to become so pre-occupied of what we should get for our families and friends (which is a great thing, don't get me wrong) that we sometimes forget what to get for ourselves as a reward for working hard this past year. As for me, one thing that puts a smile on my face is getting myself a new outfit for the upcoming holidays. And yes, I often purchase clothes, yeah they're my weakness, but Christmas is an occasion that is unlike any other occasion so I want to get myself something special. Being the planner that I am, I have already got some items from Sheinside a few weeks back and just waiting for it to arrive.

Introducing: The Sammydress.com App

I love online shopping, I even shop through social media businesses. I don’t know, but I really find it convenient especially that our lives are so fast-paced that having to stay at malls for the entire day just to look for something may lead to wasting of precious time. But Divisoria, which is our local version of the Chatuchak Market in Thailand or Guangzhou in China, is a completely different story,  that’s the only shopping place I can stay and walk around, back and forth from dusk until dawn! But only if I have all the time in the world. Since it is the holidays people from all over Metro Manila flock to Divisoria and it tends to get super crowded, not to mention the chances of being victimized by pick-pockets and the intolerable traffic  to Divisoria. So yeah, I would not have the chance to visit it this season to buy gifts and outfits. So I (always) opt to shop online instead.




Anyway, I want to introduce you guys to sammydress.com, it is one of the online stores I regularly visit because they have pretty good items to offer. Although I haven't had the chance to purchase anything from their website, but you guess it right that I have lots of items that I added to my Sammydress account's Wishlist cart. Their dresses are super trendy and are very affordable too! Hmmm, that doesn't give this website justice when I said "affordable", the right words should be: "cheaper than most of the online clothing stores I frequently visit". They also offer free shipping! Yey for that!

Who Says Silk Is for Women Only?

I don’t know if you will agree with me, but I think most men usually don’t care much about how they look or what they wear. I know very few men who really take time to fix themselves and pick out stylish outfits and I can count them using just the fingers on one of my hands. Most often than not, men value comfort more than being stylish (or at least being up-to-date with the current trend).




It is most likely that their partners are the ones choosing what clothes they can or can’t wear, until they eventually start to appreciate how great they look if they fix themselves up and wear good fitting clothes and an updated wardrobe. BUT, for sure this time you will definitely agree when I say that men don’t care what they wear to sleep and 100% that what they wore for the day will be their sleeping clothes (unless they’re in suits or tux or other work clothes). And you know what I mean that this usual practice of men will not be beneficial for your bed linens.


Stylish Platform Shoes from Shoespie

Choosing the right pair of shoes is very essential in putting together an ensemble; it can always make or break your outfit. Although it looks like it is a simple thing, it is really not. It is very critical especially when you’re going to use them for a particular occasion or weather. If you ask me, in purchasing a pair of shoes I always base my decision on the design of the shoes and not to where I am going to use them and why I am buying them. So I always end up with a lot of pairs but not able to utilize each and every one of them.



Let’s say for example you are getting married and you are thinking of buying a pair of shoes that will complete your whole bridal look. I know you will be searching all over the place and will be visiting a lot of stores until you find the “one”, that already says a lot about how it is not easy to look for the right pair of shoes.
