Christmas Shopping - For The Men

Time flies real fast! I can't believe we're already halfway through with November! Do you have your Christmas list already? If yes, then you must start your shopping for it now! :) It will surely save your time from crazy holiday traffic!

Shopping is one of the things myself is enjoying, whether it's in mall, tiangge, thrift shop and even online. It always gives me pleasure and takes away all my pressure - talk about hitting two birds with one stone! ;) But there is one part of it that makes me crazy every time, it is selecting something for men may it be my boyfriend, male friend, cousins, etc. But the increasing means of shopping nowadays makes it easier for people like me. And today I am listing my choice of  Christmas gift suggestions for the men of your life so keep on reading! 

1. Scarfs/Shawl  - Although it's not raining snow here in the Philippines, it tends to be too cold on Christmas season so giving something to keep men warm is always a good idea.

2. Customizable Watch - with the rise of fashion trends today, men are now considering accessorizing their OOTDs to be part of everyday life. I think giving your men a cute customizable watch will be greatly appreciated!

3. Cool Headphones - men are usually into music so headphones are also a good choice to give. I have looked for unique ones online and the selection of cool headphones from Zalora won my heart. I think it would be a great Christmas gift for your male friends or family members!

I hope this short list helps! I am publishing this also for myself and bookmark these links for my Christmas shopping, you could do it as well!

Caronia Chasse

It's been a while since I last posted my current nail color here and I'm finally back because it is holiday again! Caronia Philippines recently launched its newest collection in collaboration with Ballet Philippines dubbed as "Art of Dance" collection which showcases 3 gorgeous hues.

One of those hues are called “Chasse” which is an electric blue that’s perfect for summer! The word Chasse means a dance step used in many dance variations. The other hues are called “Pique” and “Glissade” which are another dance terms and I am reserving those for another blog post since each color can stand on its own. J

Thanks again Caronia Philippines and congratulations for having such a gorgeous, flamboyant collection! ♥

Black-themed Wedding

I used to grew up in the practice of avoiding wearing black during a wedding (or at least any celebration) because of some Filipino traditions and beliefs. But at this modern time where technology is taking its rise in every home plus the factor of living in the metropolis, I think it was just about time to let go of some "minor" beliefs which sometimes became overrated.

Bag: Chicnova | Necklace: Bellast
And in the dynamic world of fashion nowadays, my take on black is all about class and elegance. And to use it in your wedding? It will be so unique! Just like this wedding I have attended 4 months ago (see how terrible blogger I am now? L) which is my boyfriend’s brother’s. It is a wedding that’s all about DIY and personal style which surely brings out the fun personality of both bride and groom with a touch of elegance because of their black and white theme.

Dress: Soiree
When I was informed about the dress code, I knew I didn’t need to buy a new dress because I decided to wear my LBD again (which I first wore here) and little did I know, it made me looked that I can pass as one of the entourage because I also have that ballerina-like tutu layer on my dress! What a coincidence! J

Congrats again Kuya Allan and Ate Enei! Good luck to your journey to forever! ♥

DresSale Comfort Shoes Wish List

If there is one thing I can never have enough aside from clothes, it will be shoes. I mean, why not right? Cinderella is a proof that having a new pair of shoes can change your life! Hahaha! Admittedly, I am a terrible, unwise shopper when it comes to fashion. It is always been a battle of buying it first before thinking of why I need to buy it especially if I think the price is freakily reduced by the time I saw it. Just what happened when I came across! I freaked out when I saw how low their prices are, my jaw literally drop because I didn't know what to look at first since I wanted to buy everything! But then I managed to tone down my list and came up with below wish list for DresSale:

Flat Shoes (L-R): StuddedAnimal-inspiredNeonHoundstooth
I'm a sucker when it comes to flat shoes, this is one of my style essential since I am more of the comfort and convenience; style/design will just come next. Of course it doesn't have to be a simple doll shoes all through out, you can capitalize on picking a unique yet relatable style to match your outfit just like opting for a studdedanimal-inspiredpop of color or printed instead of just a plain solid color.

Oxford Shoes (L-R): Pastel BlueNeutral BrownFloral
Another way to rock a comfortable style without sacrificing the design is to wear oxford shoes. Just like flat shoes, you should never stick on the traditional neutral color. You may opt for pastelneutral color with interesting cut and even go crazy with floral.

Elevated Sneakers: ColorblockLaceFloral
If you're an average high girl like me who seriously needs the help of elevated shoes but do want comfort at the same time, heeled sneakers could be your best friend! Neutral colorblock are best for sporty/casual outfits while lacey ones would go right with dressier style same as the floral however, you could still use it in smart-casual/ corporate and even sporty style to add some edginess.

All items in this wishlist is available at, you could visit their website and be wowed by their amazing collection! :)

Summer 2014: Island Cove

Can’t believe it’s summer time again! How time flies so fast! It feels like I just posted my Tagaytay and family swimming adventure just a month or two but it’s the time of the year again. Hello summer 2014, I’m so ready for you!

A couple of weeks ago, I together with my closest friends (and boyfriend of course!) have gone on our barkada summer getaway for this year at Island Cove Leisure Park in Cavite. It was a short-planned one even though I already had our entrance fee paid on summer of last year. But as the saying goes, the more you are planning it the more you will not enjoy it and that proved to be true during this short trip. It was also a day of escape from our individual busy works that's why we really maximize it! 

Travelling to the place isn’t a problem at all since it is just a minute away from the Metro! We just took a bus ride from Pasay to Cavite via Cavitex then rode a tricycle to get into the leisure park and voila! we just hit in our short escape!

What I love about this leisure park is it has a zoo! We’ve got a chance to see different animals when we got tired of swimming however, the Animal Island (zoo) is a bit too far from Oceania (water park/pool) so we decided to rent a bike and it was a whole lot of fun driving the bike all over the place!

Look up, look up! Hahaha!
Before we leave the place, we took a couple of minutes to visit the Fishing Village, a floating restaurant inside Island Cove. Glad we’re allowed to enter even though we doesn't have any plan to eat. Another thumbs up for such a breathtaking view especially when we came during the sunset! The clear sky, the water, the horizon, ooohh.. just perfect scene! Yay!

It's been a short yet memorable experience Island Cove, I will surely come back in another summer time for you! Thank you for these people who make this day extra memorable! (Yay, cheesy!)

I definitely recommend Island Cove whether if you're looking for a short yet affordable summer tour in the South whether it is for family, friends or even a couple.
