How Do I Knit If I'm Left-Handed?

Anybody who is left-handed has probably noticed very quickly that all knitting instructions and tutorials are written from a right-handed perspective. For the lefties who want to get started with knitting (click here), there is just one question: can you knit left-handed? 




Left or Right?
For a non-knitter, the entire problem may seem odd. Knitting is done with 2 needles, one in each hand. How is this a left/right handed issue? For standard knitting, the yarn is fed through the right hand into new stitches, and the work is done with the right needle. The left needle is mainly the base on which you work. Stitches then move from the left-hand needle over to the right as the row is completed. So knitting is definitely a directional technique. What's a leftie to do?

I Have Found The One! The New Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation

I am on a quest, a quest to find the best foundation that suits my skin colour and skin type. For me it's foundation day every day, I might get snarly looks and comments about me wearing foundation everyday (well except on weekends and that I don't have be anywhere but home). This has been the case ever since I started working in the corporate world. Using foundation everyday for some people might be too much, some say that I should wear BB cream or tinted moisturizers if I'm putting make up on a daily basis. But those don't give me the coverage and look that I want to achieve before I step out of the house.




I rarely do make up reviews or beauty products, but I found something that needs to be raved about and I just had to do it. Also, I don't consider myself us a pro when it comes to make-up. I'm on the intermediate level; I still don’t know a lot of things, I still make boo-boos, my eyebrows are not always on fleek, and I still need to learn a lot about makeup application. This is a long forgotten review tbh, I did photograph the products a month ago and only now that I had the opportunity to create a write-up. So today I'm writing down my two-cents about the New Maybelline FitMe! Poreless Foundation.

10 Tips to Look Good in Travel Photos

Certain things are just inevitabilities of travelling – a failure to pack a full complement of clothing and mixing and matching outfits just to get by, looking sunburnt and windswept, and taking photos of everything and everywhere you go. Whether you choose to send them directly to friends, splash them on social media, or you just want to look back on fond memories – you want to look good in those pictures. I mean, how else am I supposed to make everyone jealous of my awesome travels if I don't look great in every snap? Check out these 10 tips to look good in every travel photo you take.




1. That Twisted Torso 
Worried about showing off your paunch? Work that twisted torso pose – even Hollywood stars do it all the time. Simply put your shoulder forward and give your body a little twist to perfect the sideways pose. You'll look super slender.

Well what do you know? I am back with another Zaful haul and how amazing it is that this is already my 10th haul from this online shopping site.

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.

Dresslily.com Haul # 2 + Review

I was sad, then I bought something online. I feel better now. Just kidding haha! I just read that quote somewhere online. But seriously, though I hate to admit it, but retail therapy is one of the things that I do when I feel under the weather. Most girls are like that, and I am not spared. Even if I don't buy anything, I like to browse online stores or go window shopping at malls. 




So to break my streak of posting food posts, I'm sharing with y'all my latest online clothing haul. This time, it's from Dresslily.com. I always visited this site and browsed through it, yet I have made only two purchases or orders from them. They are one of the online stores that offers the cheapest items. So far I have good shopping experience from Dresslily. Shipping is as per usual the usual post office way and takes almost a month to get to me. Oh well, what can I do, the Philippine postal system somehow upgraded their system but they're still archaic in most processes.

Who Run The World? Girls in High Heels!

There's a popular saying that goes like this: "Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world." And that was uttered by  one of the most iconic women in the world - Marilyn Monroe. Do you believe that? I'd say I do. The perfect shoes gives a woman that confidence boost. It's hard walking around in stiletto heels but if a girl can manage to walk in those shoes the whole day even if it can get a bit painful, the fact that she can endure that, I think she can handle anything that is thrown in her way. 




Some might say, "yeah those are just high-heeled shoes". Here's what I have to say about that: "Oh yeah? Try walking in them then let's see. Just heels eh?" I've seen a lot of videos online where mem tried wearing heels over a day and they can't even last for hours. Some even say they commend women for being able to wear them for hours on end and days. Some also goes as far as asking why do we women subject ourselves to such things.

Poke Shack at Bridgetowne Libis

Mahalo! Poke is a raw-fish salad, it is like the hamburger of Hawaii, ever-present at family gatherings, parties, tailgates, and supermarket delis across the Hawaiian Islands. Poke began with fishermen seasoning the cut-offs from their catch to serve as a snack. Traditional poke seasonings have been heavily influenced by Japanese and other Asian cuisines. 





I am quite familiar with this dish as my immediate family (grandparents, aunts and uncles) have lived in Kauai for several years before moving to Mainland US and I always hear my grandma talking about this (and heard the pronunciation from them too haha). I also have an American friend who’s a chef and loves making them. I think they are your healthy and more filling alternatives to the dishes that you would usually eat.

Oh To Be Young Again!

Yes, to be young again! I was just talking with a colleague about what it was like back when I was in high school and college a while back. That got me reminiscing, became very nostalgic and thought about the things I could have done differently. You know if given the chance, I would undo a lot of the stupid decisions and indecisions that I have committed. I wonder if life would be better or it will just create some butterfly effects. 




Like, if I was wiser with career goals and relationships, would have I been up in the heavens. Not that I am discontented with life right now, don't get me wrong, I am blessed beyond belief and I've never been this happy and at peace with myself and my life without having to depend my happiness and worth from other people. I am joyful now than ever before. And I am grateful for that and I cannot even explain how much I am.

Secret Bar: The Exit

Times have become different since the dark era of 1920's Prohibition, when the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages was outlawed. While not outlawed, a great number of these drinks are just as unreachable as they were 90 years ago. While doing some reading about this topic, I found out that most bars and liquor stores carry only 10 to 50 bottles on average. Thus the proliferation of speakeasies across the United States.



Although I have not come across any written evidence that this was also the case in the Philippines during the 20s and 30s even though at that time we were a colony of the US. That's a good thing perhaps. Exactly the same thought that after a while, speakeasies are also springing around the metro.

Rosegal.com Haul 3 + Review

Ciao bellas! How’s life going? As for me, life has been good as always! Busy as well and always toxic at work. And you know what a stress girl needs right? Some window shopping or straight up shopping. I recently added some stuff to my online shopping cart from Rosegal. This is my third purchase from Rosegal and I don’t think you can call it a haul because there’s only two items for this package. But, oh well, let’s call it a haul anyway. 





Btw, if you’re not familiar, Rosegal.com is one of the many Asian-based online shopping sites. They originally offer vintage style clothing but ventured also to contemporary fashion offering clients hundreds of styles of dresses, swimwear, jewelry, shoes, bags and other fashion-related items.

TRSisterhood: Tequila Rose x Sugar Factory

Tequila Rose is a strawberry cream liquer fearlessly combined with an exotic tequila thrill. It flirts with the line between naughty and nice. Tequila Rose is guaranteed to be a good time, anytime, whether it's night or day, staying in or going out, the smooth, easy taste and festive pink color of Tequila Rose is always a recipe for fun. Just ask the ever-feminine but fierce icon rose, "Life is short. Enjoy the roses."




Me and other blogger friend where invited to the launch of TRSisterhood - the sisterhood of women who loves Tequila Rose. The event was held at Sugar Factory Shangri-La The Fort. It was hosted by Philippine supermodel and host Sanya Smith and music was played by DJ Jeremy Blake. Since it was a Wednesday, the attire was strictly pink, because you know, "On Wednesdays we wear Pink." 😉

How to Make Your Skin Flawless AF

Summer is nearing an end and it is the perfect time to perfect your skin care routine. Having flawless AF skin is something every girl wants, but it takes time and effort. During summer, your skin is under more stress than usual and taking care of it and helping it recover from sun rays, salty water and heat won’t be easy but it can be done. So, here’s what you need to start doing as soon as possible to get that flawless skin.




Stick to a simple routine
The most important factor determining the state of your skin is your cleaning routine. You should clean your face every morning as soon as you wake up and in the evening just before you go to bed. It’s best to have a simple routine as too many products can irritate your skin and when it comes to sticking to a routine it helps that it is less time-consuming. Your routine should consist of three steps: cleaning, toning and moisturizing.

The Importance of Food Presentation

The anticipation, the tantalizing fragrances, and the perfect atmosphere – they all come together into a harmonious meal when even the simplest dishes turn into a feast. But few things can disrupt this lovely kitchen Zen like a poorly assembled plate, with one lump of food staring you in the face with no sense of order.




The devil is in the detail, many chefs would say, and if you pay attention to the right ones, your regular daily dining can become as splendid as a restaurant outing. We are visual creatures, but our senses work together to form a unique experience, and your meal is no exception.

"I already have enough clothes" said no one ever. Right? It's just me being a girl and I shouldn't be sorry for that. So you know how ecstatic I am when I came across this new website that offers ready-to-wear apparel: Zan.Style.

Zaful.com Haul # 8 + Review

Hey y'all! How's life going? As for it's about the same, but I'm pretty much excited for quite a couple of things happening in my life. For one, I can't wait until the last quarter of this year since I'm going to do a handful of traveling, abroad and locally. And I can't wait for that! If I can fast forward time,I would. Another thing is that I'm having great relationships when it comes to PR stuff, foodie meet ups here and there plus a couple of sponsorship particularly in the apparel area. You know that I am not a fashion blogger whatsoever, but I feel lucky that a couple of online shops are trusting me to review and promote their products.




And one of them is Zaful.com; as you can see in the past couple of months I've been having hauls from them one after the other and now on my 8th haul! How fun and awesome is that? Now I don't have to worry for the outfits that I need for my future trips. Zaful has got that covered.

Diamonds are Forever

"Diamonds are forever..." This was the slogan used by the world's largest producer and distributor of diamonds, De Beers, since 1948, and continue to do so as of present time. Shirley Bassey also used it in her song with the same title and was used as the soundtrack for the seventh James Bond film of the same name. 




The lyrics goes: "Diamonds are forever, they are all I need to please me. They can stimulate and tease me. They won't leave in the night. I've no fear that they might desert me. Diamonds never lie to me. For when love's gone, they'll lustre on. Diamonds are forever, sparkling round my little finger. Unlike men, the diamonds linger. Men are mere mortals who are not worth going to your grave for. Diamonds never lie to me. For when love's gone, they'll lustre on. Diamonds are forever, forever, forever."

Ambition. Dedication. Determination.

I am at my unhealthiest state at the moment. I've been living a very sedentary life for months or a year now. And that has taken a great toll on my body. I always feel tired than usual, I sleep half the hours that I should and I often get sick.




At this very moment I have a tonsillitis is about to erupt which would cause me to call in sick at work for a day or two. And it sucks, I hate being sick, I hate the feeling of being sick. This got me thinking that I need to really really commit to changing my dietary and lifestyle ways.

Wow Your Guests with Well-Thought-Out Wedding Favors

A wedding only happens in one day, but it takes months to a year to prepare for that single day. There are so many aspects in a wedding that guests and spectators have no idea how much hard work is put in to it.  The time, stress and the amount of money put into a wedding is to be treated as a big deal because a couple has to squeeze planning and accomplishing a lot of things for their wedding on top of their daily jobs and other personal tasks. 





I love being a part of someone's wedding and even the thought of being invited in a wedding is a huge privilege for me. It actually pains me to see that people nowadays, when they get invited to a wedding, they feel like the bride and groom owe them something. When in fact, the attitude  should be that being invited in a wedding, more so if you're being chosen as part of the bridal entourage, you should feel privileged in a humble manner.
