Payday Wish List N'1


Pay Day Wish list N'1

Happy Wednesday! It's hump day and it is also payday for some and for me as well so I thought I would do a wish list this week of things I want to get as I've been really good lately and have enough in my budget to treat myself. I have an assortment of things that I've been eying and I decided why not before we hit with the Christmas season and have to start shopping for gifts. I've also discovered the luxury of online shopping and it still thrills me paying online and getting it in the mail. It is like a tiny present you sent yourself and I'm still new to it so it still amazes me. It is so convenient especially with the traffic now because the "Ber Months" is when a lot of people here go out and are out shopping as well. I do still like seeing things in person and going to the mall so I don't think online shopping will replace the regular type but for now I am having such a fun time browsing in bed with my pajamas and having it arrive on my doorstep (hopefully still not in my pajamas when I answer the door.) Let me start and show you what things I'd love to start shopping for on payday!

Hint Ladies Floral Shorts
The first two items are shorts and not just any but floral ones that are bright and colorful and nothing like autumn. I have accepted the fact and have come to terms that there is no autumn in the Philippines and I shouldn't dress for the season. It is hard when all I want are nice sweaters, hot chocolate and leaves falling and turning different colors but sadly here it is just rainy or sunny and that is it. I think I may have to consider moving back to the US one of these days. So who cares if I want to buy colorful floral shorts in October because I can and I can wear them year round here because of hot hot and humid it is. Also look how cute they are and you cant beat the price. ZALORA has a pretty cool selection of shorts for women. Check them out here. I will just admire these while the rest of the world gets to cozy up in warm jumpers while I wait for it to get somewhat cold and start rainy to put on some layers but then again I wait for it to be sunny again or else I can't take blog pictures. I'm never happy with anything but the pretty shorts make me happy so that's good.

ZALORA Exposed Zipper Trapeze Bag
Okay I think I have enough black bags but they are such staples and I might have an addiction to these but they go ith everything and are so easy to style with outfits no matter what mood you are going for. I saw this one and just new I was could to have it. I have seen so many that look like it and I've seen it so much that I need to pick one up as well. It comes in white too which I was thinking about but I m on a black bag obsession and can't break now. Also look at the shape of it and I think it will be just the right size for everything.

#PREVIEWXHAPPYSKIN Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie Set in Too Cool
You know how I just said I've come to terms with not having Autumn well I'm not entirely and who says you can't wear a lip in these shades whenever. It is the perfect tones for this time of year and though I thought I got over it I still had to add something fall themed into this post. A red and a nude lip but it isn't just for now but can be worn all the time. I think these two are so pretty and when they came out I thought I could resist but I need it especially this cute box it comes in and it comes in two variations but I liked this one better.

BYS Makeup Pro Glamourbox
I may have already just purchase this right before doing this post but why not include it. I am a sucker for makeup monthly box subscriptions and Glamourbox does it right. I saw so many Instagram posts on it and I knew once that paycheck came around I knew it had to be mine. I am sure I'll be doing a unboxing of it so you'll see exactly why I bought it in the first place. 

Models Own - Hotstuff and Sodapop Pink
This one might be another purchase I already did with the Glamourbox above. I saw they had a promo of buy one get one and it had a timer and it was going to expire and it was such a deal that I got two for the price of one and I panicked hit the add to cart button and it was mine. I have not tried any Models Own polishes and I've heard so many good things that it was just just faith that brought us together with that promo and I am so excited to get it in the mail now. Does your finger ever slip and buy things because of a good deal? This was my first time and it gave me such a rush that I want to do it again.

Olivia Carry-On Bag
My family and I might be going on a little trip to Palawan which is an island off of the Philippines and I hear it is beautiful and it will be my first time going if we do end up going. My mom has family that moved there quite some time ago and can you believe I have not met them yet. It will be this little reunion and get together if we do go. So why not get a new carry on bag to take with me? this I saw at the mall and on their Facebook store and it is the perfect print and color. It is again a floral print but not as bold and it is way more grown up than my actual one which has bows and hello kitty all over it. I need a more formal version of a carry on bag and I think this is perfect for me.

Collagen Eye Patch
Here starts my love for Etude House and I think I could do a whole entire post on what I want to get from there but I will start slow again before I rush into it all. I think it has become my favorite store lately and I always pop in for a browse whenever I see one. The interior is so pretty if you haven't seen one but it just attracts you in with all the pink and just everything girly about it. I've been seeing the undereye masks and really want to try them and see how much they will help. Also don't they look so cool on and I would feel so awesome for some reason.

I Need You Mask
I know there are more skincare stuffs I'd love to try from there as well but another is trying the masks again. I was convinced my a blogger friend I follow, Tellie, as she is always doing them and posts about them and it just makes me want to have a pamper session and wear them while watching TV at night or my nightly blogging session.

Floral File Box
The stationery starts and what I mean by it starts is I am creeping into stationery stores again and it is that time of year to get new planners and diaries and all those fun stuff with it. I found this store in my local mall and I resit myself so many times or else I'll buy out everything. To start it off I thought just begin with something small for now and that is these cute floral file boxes to put either my stuff in like beauty products and random other things to organize my room a bit before and after I redecorate it. I am in the process of that and picking out a bed which I didn't know would be so hard. I should of added a bed to this wish list too but nevermind. I saw these and I knew they would be perfect with the theme I have in my for the new stuff I plan to decorate it with. You know me with pink and florals and that I'm a bit obsessed with them and have multiple items of things and clothing with a floral print so I knew they would be perfect.

Romantic Vintage Compact Camera Strap
A bit random but I saw that you can change your strap on your DSLR and I've been searching around for the perfect one and I might find something close. Again it has another floral theme to it and it may not be pink as I wanted it to be but this is quite nice and I'd love to have it. It might just add some life to my picture taking and who wouldn't want a cute strap to have on there camera instead of the one tht comes with it.

That were my picks of items I'd like to purchase once the money comes rolling in. I'd love to know what you are going to buy next and your thoughts on online shopping because at the moment I think it is the greatest thing invented. I am now waiting on so many parcels that I am as excited as a kid on Christmas for them. It is still new to me so I am that person who is still blown away from it. I hope you liked this chatty wishlist and I'm so excited for all of this and really miss doing these wish lists and I should start doing them again. Look forward to these and maybe I'll film a haul when I get everything in and all the shopping I might do and have been doing so watch this space and my channel when I will be posting those.

What is something you want to buy next payday?

Mother of the Bride and Groom Dresses | Planning Style

Dressfashion Long Prom Dresses

Mother of the Bride and Groom Dresses - Planning Style

Happy Monday! I am back to another planning inspiration post and this is to show the dresses of the mother of the bride and groom. There were so many cheap dresses to choose from at Missydressesau and it had different style and colors for the mother of the bride dress. As you know I am kindly helping my cousin plan her wedding and last Saturday we went off to some dress shops to browse for her dress and since her mom which is my aunt tagged along we needed to have her try on some dresses or technically we tricked her into trying on something dressy because she does not like wearing anything fancy or anything like that. It was a struggle and we may have to consider uninviting her to the wedding, kidding e love you aunty no matter what you wear. So it was my mission to find some dresses online to show her to kind of get her to accept the torture of wearing a somewhat formal dress on the day. Now here are some of my choices I picked for the mother of the bride and also groom to wear.

First we have my aunt and we choose for her to wear blue. She looks pretty good in blue and it will match the theme my cousin has chosen. She also did not want a long gown because in her words she is not the one getting married and isn't going to prom so we had to find something short or mid length because anything that looked like a gown will be turned down in a second flat. Now these are two dresses I showed her.

Navy Sheath Knee-length V-neck Mother of the Bride Dress
This one is the exact color my cousin had in mind. It is simple and to me doesn't look like a gown. It seems like something Kate Middleton would wear and that's why I picked it but it was a dress all of us could agree on. My aunt likes the belt and it doesn't seem that bad but I'm sure this will be the only time we see her dressed up.        

A-line Square Knee-length Chiffon Mother Of the Bride Dress
Next one we really had to do some convincing because it does look like a short gown but this is what my cousin had in mind for her mother and I'm sure a lot of forcing will happen. We still have time to choose but I really liked this one as well and I just love the top and the sleeves and it does look like it can be for a mother.

As for my cousin's mother in law. I only knew the color she was wearing which was like a beige and brown or something and she didn't really care and could be dressed up in a gown so we went for a floor length gown and this was way easier to pick than her mother.

Sweetheart Short Sleeves Floor-Length Mother of the Groom Dress
The first one is really nice and I love this one myself. I love that it seems like a pretty bridesmaid dress and the color is really nice on it. The skirt is tulle and just drops down and I think she'll like it and will be willing to wear it.

Sheath V-neck Sleeve Taffeta Mother Of the Groom Dress
The last one is in the same color palette and is cinched at the waist and has this pretty detailing in the middle. My cousin choose this one as she thinks it would be exactly what his mom would wear. I'm okay with it but I like the top one better but I do feel this would be better suited for her age and not look like something the bridesmaid will wear.

Those were the dress inspiration for the mother of the bride and groom and I really like choosing styles they could wear on the big day. It usually is over looked and I'm glad my cousin could think of it because I would totally forget. I can't wait to do an inspiration post on my dress and what  would be wearing on the day. I still haven't decided as well but I think the other details are more important first so that would have to wait. I hope you liked these dress and which one you liked best. Until the next post of my planning inspiration.

What kind of dress do you imagine your mother wearing at your wedding?

BDJ Beauty Social: Global Glam | Loot Bag & Freebies


BDJ Beauty Social: Global Glam // Loot Bag & Freebies

Happy Friday! Another exciting entry from the Beauty Social and it is the loot bag. If you've read my blog for a while then you know I've always loved showing you what is inside and hope you do as well. I've done two other ones as well and you can view the first one here and the second one is here if you'd like to see what was in the previous ones. This year has some pretty good things inside and shall we jump in to see what goodies are in store. I also filmed it this year in a haul/unboxing sort of video if you'd like to watch it instead down below.




The beauty passport is the first thing and inside the pamphlet you have a map of the event, where the booths are and a checklist of what's going on that day and all kinds of info about the brands and contests. The first beauty product we get inside is this Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner and I've heard so many good things and really excited to try it since it is a good hair treatment. I'm hoping I like it and it is really magic for the hair after reading so many reviews raving it does help the hair. After that the next is the Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub and it is a pretty big tub and I'm not sure about the whitening thing as it really isn't a priority to me but I do love scrubs to remove dead skin and stuff every other day. So I guess I will be looking forward to using it as soon as I finish my current one I am using.


I have a photo but i isn't from the event because unfortunately they ran out of paper and ink which made me sad as I love collecting them and adding them to my cor board above my desk for memories. I did however get to manage to get a little souvenir picture from the mall the event was at and since it was Grandparents day they gave out balloons and keepsake at the photo booth they set up. I still wanted to include it as it still form the day but afterwards and it still shows you us on that day. Underneath it all is two magazines one is Hola Philippines and next is Meg. At least now I have some magazines to read through when I am bored or need some inspiration or something. I think every year I got one before and still have them as well.


Here are the samples from the booths that were given to me. First off I'm excited for the My Amazing Blow Dry Shampoo and Conditioner sample sachet and I think I'd love to try this and it is a fairly big sample to really test it out before buying the full size. Next will be the Morrison Samples that comes with cute little tubs of Collagen Whitening Body Lotion, Stretch Mark Collagen Cream and Elbow and Knee Body Cream so that is a nice treat to try some new body creams for different problems. Also there is the Max Factor Whipped Creme Foundation sample sachet in 75 Golden. I'm not sure if it is a match but it has some enough for one full face. Then there is a Globe MasterCard which I paid 150php for and it can be used like an actually debit card. I think I'm going to use it for the app store to use on my iPhone to get some apps so leave some suggestions of what I can buy with it, I can use it with shopping and anything else as well instead of using cash. There is a lot of other things about it the lady told me as well and it is pretty useful.


The Bioderma was the most exciting for me because after reading about their products and saying how everyone loves them I get sucked into the hype and like to see what the fuss was about as well. I thought I would never try it unless I go to France or London but it recently launched here in Manila and I couldn't justify getting it just yet because it is quite pricey and I didn't know if it would work for me so when ever I pass it in Watson's or a department store I just stare at it and walk past. Now I'm excited to try it and with the tiny cute little samples I got and can see why everyone loves them. I got the normal one and the oily combination one. Then I got this sebum pore cream and an eye cream. I guess I might do a first impressions of this and if I like the enough maybe just maybe it will be enough to convince me to get a full size and fork the money out for it. Let's see and hope I will be liking them. Some stickers from Browhaus and a foldable fan from the Power booth and flyers about raising awarness. Then the other two things in the loot bag was the Pure N Fresh Feminine Wash in Manderin Kisses and it comes in a cute little bottle and smells like fresh oranges from the summer. Last thing is this Olay Kit which I seen before and have another one because I was sent one too but it has a Olay Body Wash and Olay Day Cream inside of this cute little carrying case. I will have a separate post on the Olay Set as I'd like to give my first impressions and a mini review on them.


That was this year's Beauty Social loot bag. I think it was pretty good this time but if you ask me my favorite one so far I still can't pick but this one was close.I think my favorites was the Olay Body Wash, the Amazing Blow Dry Shampoo and Conditioner and then the Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner. I hope you like see inside what was in it and a pretty good haul this time around. I am really excited to be using them and if you would like me to review any of these. Also you can watch the haul video on my channel too. Hope you like this and it is my last beauty social post until next year. Have a good weekend ahead of you!

What skincare product sample would be something you'd like to try?

Regal Blush | What I Wore


Regal Blush - What I Wore
Happy Wednesday! I've been on a roll with my outfits lately and I'm so excited to show you this one as I feel like my style is coming back and I'm getting inspired once again. This is what I wore to the BDJ Global Glam Beauty Social I wrote about here. I also did feature this in my vlog which was so fun to actually tell you what I'm wearing if you'd like to see it on my youtube channel.

My outfit was a little dressed up even though it was a semi-casual event as it was only in the mall but of course there is always a reason to dress up whenever you want. I bought this blush pink sweater after lusting over it since my birthday in April and I finally splurged and got it and it is this light material that can be worn even in this tropical weather. I paired it with a black skater skirt, black bag with gold detailing ad some black ballet flats. My necklace was from an heirloom and my bow chain necklace. For my bow I went with a blush pink and black polka-dot bow. I think pretty much my whole outfit was either blush pink and maybe even my underwear matched and my sunglasses as well. I think I've been loving blush pink even though it isn't in the season color but I think I am going to buy more clothes in this color. I just love this outfit and need to find an occasion to wear it to again. Also going to find ways in styling this sweater differently.

| top: Forever 21, skirt: HM, sunglasses: Forever 21 {similar}, necklace: Forever 21 {similar}, earrings: Claire's. shoes: Lower East Side, bag: Dresslink, bow: Forever 21 |

That was another outfit post and one of my favorites I think lately. I am now in love sweaters and might need to buy more as I miss wearing them and didn't know it can be acceptable to wear in our climate. I really loved the day and it was a nice comfy outfit and kept me warm staying in that air conditioning for long. I have a video and a blog post on the loot bag I got from the event if you'd like to see that coming on Friday. I'm actually going out tomorrow to shoot more outfits so that will be fun and hope to shoot more for the blog. Also happy Autumn as I heard today is the official start. I wish we got the change in weather and could wear all the fun fashion but alas I can only wait till rainy days. Hope you have a good rest of the week!

What do you like pairing with your sweater?

Homecoming Dress Inspiration For Fall


Homecoming Dress Inspiration For Fall

Happy Monday everyone! It’s been a while since I did a pretty dress round up and today I decided to pick some for the story I am writing and it is about that time where they are heading to that event and also it is the fall time so what perfect time to do that. There is some Cheap Homecoming Dresses on Ihomecoming

I went for a fall theme and I wanted them to have darker colors and just match their personalities of the characters and the season it is right now. I never got a chance to go myself so this is all in my imagination and it is fun scrolling through the the cheap homecoming from ihomecoming.


The first dress has a diamond top and a black flowy skirt which I envisioned the main character to wear. It is this glam look and if I was going to homecoming I would choose this one as I think I would love to get all glammed up and get out of my style a little because homecoming is one of those times that you can.

The second dress is more regal and I love the gold and princess feel it has too. I love the detailing and the soft texture it has and just looks like something someone royal will wear. I think the character I imagine wearing this is the shy girl who had a makeover for the guy to notice her. It’s like a modern Cinderella kind of moment dress and I think this will be so pretty and just something I would wear if I could.

The final dress I picked was red. I wanted something bright and fiery and since the girl wearing this had bright red hair I thought it would be her thing to wear red all the time. I do love the dress but the color for me to wear isn’t really my thing but if you are into something like this and want to be the one to grab attention this is what will do that exact thing.

I hoped you liked this small post and me choosing pretty dresses as you know it is one of my favorite things to do. I always try to envision my characters doing this so it was really helpful. Let me know what you would like in these three dresses and they are very affordable and will look your absolutely best on your special day. Those were my choices of the Ihomecoming affordable homecoming dresses and there are a lot more to choose from. Hope to see you again in my next inspiration dress post.

What is your favorite fall colored dress?
