5 Fashion Resolutions You Should Make in 2018

End of 2018 is approaching and fast, it is time to get those resolutions on paper or smart phone, depending on the preferences. They can be as small as switching up your diet or as big as uprooting your life and moving to another country. It is all up to you. Today we are talking about resolutions that are not that big but definitely have the power to change your life for the better. Let’s see what fashion resolutions should you be including on your list for 2018.

Let the color in
Make it your mission to improve on the color choices in your wardrobe. Add some bold colors and daring prints. In case you are not yet ready to go full on color, try combining the exuberant pieces with a more tame tones. You can start with a little splashes of color here and there, a bright neon bag, some striking shades or even a pair of white or pastel pants. And then slowly move on to more daring combinations. Make 2018 the most colorful year yet.

Have You Been Naughty or Nice?

Ola chicas! How's your holidays been? I hope you're having a good time with your loved ones. I have a question for you though, have you been naughty or nice this year? Answer it honestly alright? As for me, I guess I'm ok, mostly nice I think haha! I was just doing steady and enjoying life everyday as much as I could. 

We all deserve something that will reward us from a year of hard work, don't you agree? Besides, rewarding myself more than a week of travelling in and out of the country with my great friends the last quarter of the month, I kinda did a lot of shopping for clothes and accessories. They're my weakness, y'know, retail therapy -- always going to be a girl's best friend.

Spring, Florals and My Zaful Wishlist

At the moment I just can't quite get enough of florals. I recently gushed over my obsession with floral dresses because they are just so gorgeous. The floral dresses are so feminine and stylish that you will be lovelier with them. From work to date night, from holidays to any casual occasions, a floral dress will always bring you an effortless look. In my post today, I have selected several floral dresses. If you love floral dresses, you should not miss them then.

I was never the simple girl. I've been known to be the expressive one among my family and friends. Everything that is about me was and is never simple. People closest to me can attest to that. The way I talk, the things I buy, the things I do, the things I share, heck, even the way I dress isn’t simple.

December 27, 2017 Haul #16 + Review

I'm still in Christmas mood, how about you? I love all the gifts that I received this Christmas! This season is my fave of all, besides summer of course. Because it's the season of love, giving and oh yeah, shopping haha! By the time the "ber" months hit, I was already in a holiday state of mind. Maybe because Christmas came early for me; I received lots of goodies in the mail by October. 

Including in those early Christmas presents is this recent haul I got from Zaful. Can't believe I'm on my 16th haul with this brand. How time flies right? The year just passed by like wind, I swear it was just New Year’s Eve yesterday!? Ok, I think I'm kinda rumbling already. My mind is all sorts of crazy because it's still in holiday mode.

December 24, 2017 Haul #15 + Review

It’s Christmas Eve and I’m all giddy this time of the year, it’s actually one of my favorite day. I was once a Grinch about Christmas because one of my uncles, my favorite one, died a day after Christmas. But slowly, I appreciated Christmas as the years goes by and what it really means for Christians like me. If you haven’t noticed, I went MIA from blogging as the last quarter of this year was full of activities, travels and events. Most of the time I chose sleeping or relaxing over writing my backlogs. I just want to enjoy the last few days of this year as much as I could.

A day before I left and while I was away travelling, the items for this latest Zaful haul arrived. I waited until last week to finally take photos and write reviews for this haul. After getting back from those trips, I just don’t feel like blogging, maybe I was still hung-over from all the airplane, boat, tuk-tuk, multicab rides. Haha! Only today that I got the chance to sit down in front of my computer and finally write down this haul review.

Aurora Travel Diary: Glamping at Sand & Stars

"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever."~ Jacques Yves Costeau. This quote holds true to me. What I can vividly remember when I was just two years old, a time when my memory was  starting to form, I was at the beach near our ancestral house in Iloilo province, half submerged in the water, carried by one of my uncles. I was kicking my legs in joy because I was enjoying making the water splash around me. I think that was the seed that made me start to love the sea. 

The sea gives me an unexplainable sense of calmness. If I am stressed out of my wits and I know I'm going to break down soon, a trip to the beach always relieves that. I don't know about you guys, that is how it works for me. The beach is my happy place.  And if you don’t know it yet, there's a study that going to the beach is very helpful in relieving the feeling of weariness.

5 Motivational Tips for 30-Something Gals

You’ve finally turned thirty, oh joy! Here you are, lounging in your bedroom and binge-watching Netflix in your underwear, feeling pretty good about yourself. While your accomplishment of seeing five seasons of your favourite show in less than two days is, of course, incredible, you feel like it pales slightly in comparison with your friends who are all already married, have kids and successful careers. It’s fine to be lost while you’re a teenager or in your twenties, but turn thirty and everyone expects you to already have it all figured out. Couple that with the fear of growing old and you’re in for a wild ride of constant anxiety. Well, we’re here to soothe your mind a bit. Feeling a little uninspired and worried about your future? Then read on. 

Stop comparing yourself to others
Seeing people your age becoming successful at life puts a certain kind of pressure on us. Why didn’t we get there yet? You have to realize that this pressure is mostly self-imposed and sometimes helped along by our parents who keep nagging about grandchildren. Your friends are great people, so instead of wasting time on envying them and harming yourself in the process, embrace their success and stop seeing it as evidence of your own failure. Do things at your own pace and do them to please yourself; don’t do stuff to please your parents or some society-imposed “ideal” of what your life is supposed to look like.

Rosegal Christmas Deals + Gift Ideas

It's around 20 days until Christmas and I can truly feel the rush and business of the holiday season. For the coming weeks, my weekends are now blocked for parties and get-togethers and I don't even know how to find the time to look and shop for gifts. Probably that's why my best option is to buy online instead. Because it's the only way that I can shop while I'm on the go.

Good thing is that like in malls or physical stores, there are a lot of sales and promos that online stores are also having. A few of my favorite online stores are giving their shoppers  a lot of good deals as early as November. Just like the Rosegal Christmas deals 2017 Promotion.

Timeless Fashion Trends That Never Go Out of Style

Don’t get us wrong – we’re all about supporting the latest trends… except when we’re not. Every cropped top and ripped jean has its timeless mirror-piece and we can’t help but be in favor of the cuts, prints and pieces that never go out of style and, well – work beautifully every single time. On that note, we are dedicating this late fall fashion talk to a few of our favorite timeless fashion trends and pieces we simply cannot get over. 

Starting the list with an LBD is definitely an expected and probably worn out clichĂ© but that’s not on us – can you really imagine a woman’s closet without an LBD? Of course you can’t! A little black dress is that one perfect piece that makes sense in every occasion; just dress it up or down, adjust the length and you are good to go.
