Sheinside's Special Offer

Gosh I can already feel it's the holiday season! Why? There's so many sales going on and left and right! Online shops and stores at the mall alike are starting to have super sale as early as now. Well I don't want to get caught up with the Christmas rush so as early as now, I am already starting to shop little by little for holiday outfits and for gifts.

I say we should take advantage of these sales if we want to save alot for our holiday gift shopping. As you all know, prices of commodities usually sky rocket when the holidays are approaching. Well as for me, I have already did some holiday outfit shopping, where else? You get it right! Sheinside! To tell you guys honestly I rarely buy now from the stores at the mall, most of my recent purchases composed mainly of online hauls and so far there has been no instance of me bumping into someone wearing the exact same clothes that I'm wearing.

Tex-Mex Cuisine at El Chupacabra

I just noticed I havent got the chance to blog about anything else except clothes and online shopping for the past weeks so I went through the photos that I am supposed to blog about, that are stored in my desktop PC. And then I saw a folder of a restaurant  I visited a few months back in Makati which was El Chupacabra.

We went on a Sunday right after church and found ourselves slightly lost around Makati City's red light district where El Chupacabra is. It's location is not really something to fear about because it's in the red light district because it is also very near and is just a stone throw away from Bel-Air Village which is a very high end gated community in Makati.

Viva La Bohemie with Tidestore

Bohemian fashion have always fascinated me. It is one of those fashion styles that I have always wanted to wear and embody when I was younger but failed to do so. Although I admit I have tried dressing in that style of fashion or have incorporated something Bohemian in my style back in college, but never everything at once or continuously. My personality may have got in the way because being Bohemian equates a lifestyle of being carefree or free-spirited. And I am totally the opposite of being carefree hehehe!

Bohemian fashion started way back in the 1800s! Ha! Bet you didnt know that too! I didn't too! Hahahahaha! According to Wikipedia.com the term Bohemian in modern usage, is applied to people who live unconventional, usually artistic, lives. The adherents of the "Bloomsbury Group", which formed around the Stephen sisters, Vanessa Bell and Virginia Woolf in the early 20th century, are among the best-known examples. The original "Bohemians" were travellers or refugees from central Europe (hence, the French bohémien, for "gypsy").

Cashmere and Silk Scarves from Casasilk

The cold season is upon us, which means layering, coats, and additional warming accessories like gloves and scarves are major necessities. These items can also be staple holiday gifts or personal use must-haves. Anyone here having a hard time looking for what to give your wives, moms, sisters, aunts and female friends and colleagues for Christmas? Why not give them something that they can make use of over and over and especially during this cold holiday season?

Why not give them cashmere or silk scarves? A scarf is not only useful but is also a fashion statement. Giving a gift with a purpose and is also stylish at the same time will make the receiver think that you have given enough thought on your gift which is turn will make them feel special.

BDJ Fair 2014 and My First Ever Belle de Jour Power Planner 2015

Last Oct 19 2014 I dropped by the BDJ Fair 2014 at SM MOA Music Hall, but this time around I was alone. Lol! This is because my sister Hazel, my brother's girlfiend Cess and my sister-from-another-mother Daryl Linn was not available.

Unlike the other BDJ Fairs where you need to register first via email, this mega event was open to everyone! Well, except for the talks which you need to sign up weeks or days prior and must present an email confirmation that you have been included in the list.

Go Korean Fashion with Tidestore + Cyber Monday Deals!

Korean fashion has been proliferating the fashion world for years and there's a lot of reason why is it so. Korean fashion is so extensive, from street wear to punky to classic and elegant, you name it they wear it without fear and they look good while wearing it! I too have my fair share of this trend since I have discovered online web stores that sell Korean fashion clothes. I also love their girl and boy bands that are uber talented and stylish at the same time.

Girl's Generation

Girls Generation is on the sexy/classic style while 2NE1 is on the funkier street wear style and both look good in the styles and genre that they are projecting. Even their hairstyles, make up and skin care have been affecting girls' fashion, beauty and skin care all over the world! That's how powerful and influential Koreans can get!

Welcome To The World Of Cartoons!

Whoever didn't love cartoons when they were kids??? I, for one, was and still is an avid cartoon watcher. I remember before and after going to school would always watch cartoons on TV and I was often scolded by my parents because of that since I often times comes to school almost late because I would still finish my fave cartoon show before I prepare for school. Then after coming from school I will immediately open the TV to watch cartoons instead of doing my homework  hahahahaha! I bet many of you can relate to that!

Now that I am older I still find it comforting to watch cartoons, th8e little kid inside of me still lingers. I was a great fan of Disney, Dexter's Lab, Powerpuff Girls, Simpsons, X-men, Justice League, etc. And there are times that when I flip channels and get to see a cartoons show that catches my attention I would usually stop on that channel and watch it for a few minutes. It's cool to re-live your childhood days right?

[INTERNATIONAL GIVEAWAY] My Echopaul.com Wishlist and $30 Gift Card Giveaway!

If you have been a constant visitor of my blog, you perfectly know that I am such an  online shopping addict, but most of the time I just go "online window shopping", if there's a such term. But there are instances that when I saw something that I like and can't get it over my head, I really stare at it on my desktop PC monitor for days until I convince myself to go ahead and add it to my shopping cart and checkout!

I recently came across this online store, Echopaul.com which I saw from a blogger's post. And as usual, the curious side of me or let's say that the shopaholic side of me couldn't resist what they have to offer. What really caught my attention though is the free shipping worldwide. Alot of the stores that I constantly visit are now charging for standard shipping (they didn't before) so it kinda sucks... So reading on some website that they offer free shipping made me look twice.

Persiana: Casual Mediterranean Dishes

One of the many things I love to do is to eat, and most often than  not we share the same taste in food. One of our fave international cuisine is Persian and/or Mediterranean food. We have tried out several places to get our Persian/Mediterranean food fix around the metro and unfortunately only a few stands out.

Since most of the Persian/Mediterranean restaurants in Manila are quite expensive, owing to the fact that most spices that are authentic are imported abroad, we usually get disappointed when trying out new places that serves Persian/Mediterranean cuisine. That's why we often go to Mister Kabab, which is very affordable and closest we can get a taste of this cuisine.

Erin's Polka-Dots-Meets-Shabby-Chic First Birthday

It’s fun to know that more and more people are getting into putting a theme into their parties or events and start to veer away from the traditional boring ones. Having a themed party doesn’t only engage your guests but it makes it more memorable and enjoyable.

Last August, I was able to help a friend of mine to style her daughter’s 1st Birthday Party. It was my first time to style a birthday party and I must say it’s more easier to accomplish than a wedding; because there are less details in a birthday party than a wedding. It’s also a plus point if the parents of the birthday celebrant (or the engaged couple, if it’s a wedding) are very engrossed,  trust the event stylist and open to ideas as well (instead of having no input at all). That’s what I love about Zharina, the mom of the birthday celebrant, baby Erin.

Dress the Part with Sheinside's Halloween Collection plus Annual Shopping Carnival!

Halloween is just a weeks away, and while you may not yet be ready for the Halloween festivities I know you’re already thinking about what to wear on the upcoming Halloween parties you’ll be attending. I have been seeing a lot of Halloween costume ideas online, but I personally don’t want to really dress the part so much, as much as possible I don’t want to look like any gory character at all. Attending a costume party doesn’t need for you to be jumping into the bandwagon of looking scary. There are a lot of ways to incorporate a Halloween feel in your outfit without over-killing it.

Remember from my previous blog post about the upcoming Sheinside Annual Shopping Carnival schedule? Wherein Sheinside has ALOT of upcoming surprises for us Sheinside fans!
