Short But Sweet Wedding Dresses from MillyBridal

Every girl has her weaved her dream wedding even when she was just a little girl. Some want it to be like a fairy tale kind of wedding, some they want it plain, sweet and simple. But no matter how it will turn out to be, most of the time it is the bride’s desires that will always push thru. After all, it is her big day second to her debut birthday. I know it should be a celebration for both the bride and groom and the two of them are the most important people in a wedding ceremony, but have you ever thought as to why people say congratulations to the groom and best wishes to the bride? 

They say congratulations to the groom as proper etiquette because this implies that the groom should be congratulated for being lucky for getting such a wonderful bride and to the fact that the woman accepted the man’s marriage proposal. The proper way to express your happiness to the bride is to say best wishes. This is your way of saying that you want her married life to be happy and fulfilling.

Some people reward  themselves by eating out, going to spas, collecting stuff, buying shoes or bags or travelling. But as for me, shopping for clothes are my kind of retail therapy. It’s been a while since I am able to reward myself by buying clothes. After purchasing the Black Short Sleeve Lace Beach Dress, I was left with very little store credits from Good thing I am such a social media inclined person that I was able to get clothes for almost free. How so? I always do reviews, join giveaways and publish promotions for SheIn.

I was able to accumulate almost $50 worth of store credits/bonus points in a month which gave me a chance to purchase a couple of items from SheIn. Since I got the items virtually free of cost, I paid for an expedite shipping fee so that I can get a hold of my package asap. I was amazed on how fast their expedited shipping was. I ordered Friday and Monday my package was already in the Philippines out for delivery!

Lace Meets the Sea

There is always a first time for everything. We get either excited or scared when we’re about to do or experience something for the first time; but once you’re already there you forget all the emotions of doing and experiencing that first time. You just be in the moment. For the first time in my years of existence I was able to set foot in Mindanao. Mindanao is the southernmost island of the 3 major islands groups that make up the Philippines.  I’ve been to Siargao earlier this year and it’s part of Mindanao but it’s not mainland Mindanao, so I can’t really consider being to the 3 major islands. Until the third day week of August 2015. I flew from rainy Manila and more than an hour later set foot in sunny and fair-weathered  Davao City. And finally I am able to say, I’ve somehow been all-over the Philippines.

I will save the other details of Davao 2015 trip for my later posts though. My itinerary included a trip to Pearl Farm Beach Resort which is in Samal Island, still a part of Davao. I just went for a day tour and the place was downright luxurious and beautiful. But I’m going to leave you hanging because I’m going to share that on my future post and this post is actually about this dress/beach cover up I wore to Pearl Farm and when I was in Pearl Farm.

Property24: The Search for My Perfect Dream Home

Every one of us have at some point dreamt of owning their own homes. Whether you will work hard to earn money to buy it or you’re lucky enough to have parents or relatives that will gift you a house, owning one gives you a sense of security and freedom. I believe many of us don’t want to live with our parents or relatives or rent a place like forever. It’s not about having to brag to your family and friends that you have your own home, for me it’s more of the security and freedom that it gives.
When thinking about buying my own house in the near future, I have 5 places in the Philippines where I want to buy properties. They are Pasig City, Makati City, Tagaytay, Puerto Princesa and Bohol. I want to buy a house in Pasig City because there is where I was born and raised. Pasig will always be special in my heart and I will always be a true-born and cold-blooded Pasigueña. Buying a property in Makati is more of an investment, since it is very near the business districts you’re sure that the value of your house will appreciate over the years. Not to mention it’s where I also work and having to travel less time will save money and energy.

Denim Jackets: A Timeless Fashion Must-Have

Denim was traditionally colored blue with indigo dye to make blue jeans, though the word "jean" formerly denoted a different, lighter, cotton fabric. The contemporary use of the word "jean" comes from the French word for Genoa, Italy, where the first denim trousers were made. Denim has been used in the USA since the late 18th century. It was introduced to California by Levi Strauss, who—in 1853, during the California Gold Rush—imported denim fabric from France and used it to create sturdy, solid trousers that would later become the omnipresent blue jeans.

The use of the denim cloth was not limited to just pants or trousers. The fashion industry had found ways to use it for other forms of clothing like skirts, shorts, blouse or polo and jackets. The denim jacket had been a closet staple for both men and women since time immemorial.

Fashionista's Guide through City of Melbourne!

It’s hardly possible to have just one passion. I have two and enjoy the most when it’s possible to combine them. As an enthusiastic traveler and fashion aficionado the best travel for me is in some city where I can explore the sights and shop some clothes. Melbourne is a city rich with everything you need for a fulfilled day and great memories. The vibrant culture, stunning architecture and oh-my-good-awesometastic boutiques will leave this city forever in the heart of every true travel and fashion lover. Let me be your guide through the wonders of Melbourne, and hopefully one day, you’ll follow my footsteps.

Feta Mediterranean Restaurant

I love being a Filipino and I love Pinoy food, but there are times when I really don't want to eat another serving of sinigang or adobo and my palate is looking for something different. Being a working woman, most of the time I get to eat only what’s available from our office pantry or from nearby fast-food and casual dining restaurants – which to be honest have a very limited variety and  it slowly gets unappealing. Sometimes you just want to try something out just to break the monotony and you would probably agree with me when I say that once you satisfied your craving for some foreign cuisine, it’s oh so fulfilling.

It’s been awhile since I really got to eat something under the category of Mediterranean food, if I can even call it that from where I usually get my middle eastern palate fix from. I don’t know if one of my blogger friends, Aldous of is some psychic or what because it was so timely that he invited me in one of the food tasting event he was organizing featuring Feta Mediterranean Restaurant in Annapolis, Greenhills in San Juan.

Homecoming Dresses 2015 by Cocomelody

I am someone who loves to dress up especially if I have enough time to prepare and choose outfits. If I am attending an event, say like a wedding or a party; I always plan a complete outfit (and yes, that is from head-to-toe) weeks in advance and sometimes way to ahead. I’m really keen on that subject.


Unfortunately during my prom, I wasn’t able to really put a good thought on my outfit.  From what I can remember, my mama and I just went to the mall and picked something off the rack and had my make up done in a neighborhood salon. So you probably guessed it right that until this day, I dread seeing photos of me taken during my prom.

Quirky Cool Bedroom

I want to believe that I am an old soul and I have a knack for quirky stuff. I may not entirely embody the vintage aesthetics but I am surely drawn to it. I love watching anything about World War II and the eras of 1920s and the 1950s. If I could get into a time machine and go back in time, I would probably visit those times in history. 

When time comes and I’ve been blessed to own a home that is really mine. I will probably decorate them with all things vintage and quirky. I kind of love that interior design idea nowadays; if I could I would probably make my future home a mix of quirky and shabby chic, just like the cute cafés I’ve visited and have been seeing online.

Shawarma Bros. at BGC Stopover: A Different Shawarma Experience

Shawarma Bros started as a food truck business, I've seen them in Rockwell and Capitol Commons before. H2004 Ventures Inc. was formed in 2012 by five Ateneo friends who wanted to undertake a food business together. Four of the five co-owners (Abraham Castro, Gabriel Sobrepena, Joey Reyes and Rammy de Claro) were classmates since Ateneo High School while Paolo Layug was an adopted member of the group when they met in college.


Early in the planning stage, they initially wanted to franchise a buffalo wings place. However, circumstances steered them in the direction of creating their own brand with a distinctively unique selling proposition instead – cooking and selling from a Food Truck. 3 years later they have their very own concept restaurants one in BGC and one in Pasig City.

Here Comes The Bride...Wedding Dresses from Landybridal

Today's post will be all about wedding dresses. Whether you’re single, in a relationship or already married, I know many of you love looking at wedding websites and blogs. Who wouldn’t be so enticed to look at photos of wedding dresses, themes and ideas? Whenever I am on Pinterest, I still view pins about weddings.

Sometimes a bride-to-be gets super overwhelmed with all the ideas that she sees in online and gets to a point where she wants all that she saw on Pinterest, The Knot, Wedding Chicks and all other wedding websites to be incorporated in her upcoming wedding. I think that becomes dangerous because you actually get lost in a pile of ideas and inspirations and you lose sight of what you really want and what really represents you and your groom.

Join the SheIn Publisher Program

When we believe in certain products and services that we are using, it’s so easy for us tell convincing stories to others about them and we usually are so excited to share.  Well, that’s exactly how I am about You may notice that I always feature products in my blog, aside from being part of their Publisher Program it is because I believe in and like what they have to offer.

I, too, am a customer of SheIn and I have firsthand experience when it comes to purchasing items from their site and so far I am not disappointed with what I’ve purchased. I’ve seen so many online clothing stores, and I frequent these websites; I mean there’s not a day that I don’t check online stores. I love buying from online stores because they save me the time and effort to go to the mall. And SheIn is one of those that I  visit almost everyday because they sell the trendiest clothes at reasonable prices and they always update their stocks.

SheIn's Back To School Sale!

Being in school is probably the best season in my life. I just have to think about how to pass my subjects and graduates and just be as carefree as I want. I don't have the problems of being an adult like paying the bills and preparing for my future. I met friends that remained true throughout the years whom I still have in my life now. School days are where my best memories are from. If I can bring back time and be in school again, I probably would.

School fashion doesn't have to be boring. Good for you if you don't need to wear uniform daily. You have all the capacity to show off your style everyday, unlike if you're required to be in uniforms and only get to wear casual clothing on weekends or when there's no classes. SheIn is having yet another sale where most items are 80% off, so even if you're not in school anymore and only get to wear casual clothes during weekends, here's a great chance for you to shop and save! This promotion will run until August 7, 2015 only so don't miss out!
