Corporate Chic



Lately, people have been sharing their first impression about me. They say I am very intimidating. Well I guess it's true that you can't judge a book by its cover. At times, I may be dressed to the nines or I may have that aura of being unapproachable, but trust me, I'm the exact opposite. So I decided to incorporate a look that will demand respect in the workplace, yet still make you look extra stylish. As for the intimidating look, it is up to you whether you still want to play the part.


I'd say Geometric Patterns and Prints combined with a cool-toned colored dress would do the trick. Spice up your look with a belt or wear it as-is; all depends with your personality. For that extra oomph, I chose dangling pearls earring for a fresh vibe.


Can you imagine a few more weeks and we have officially reached half of 2019. Damn, that was intensely fast. Looking at the brightside, we still have 6 more months to make the most out of 2019. Le's all try to treat every challenge as an opportunity for growth and self-improvement. I know it's hard but with the right support system, we will get through it together.

Cool for the Summer

Neons and bright colored prints are making a fashion comeback. Now that it's summer, it's time to bring out those maxi dresses and rompers as your style staple.


If you're a petite girl like me who loves dressing up, then a striking pair of pumps would definitely be part of your wardrobe. It is simply the fastest way to elongate your legs and add that oomph of confidence.


Of course, for long hours of walking, a good pair of sneakers or flats should come in handy. Only wear footwear that you can manage to walk in; the pain is not worth it. For this look, I'm wearing Jessica Simpson from the Pop Art Tribal Collection. Thanks Simon for this stylish ootd. The Poison Green color is perfect to cool things down.


The romper I'm wearing actually comes with a brown tassle belt, but since I wanted a more posh look, this black belt would do the trick. It matches my bag. Talk about coords. Remember contrast is key. I went a little extra and finished my look with hoop earrings. I strongly feel that this too will make a comeback. Enjoy your summer and remember to stay hydrated :)

The Little Things

Our finite lives are just borrowed and bestowed on us. Often times, there's so much going on that we forget to pause and appreciate the things and people that truly matter. Who would have thought that something as basic and abundant as water can just ran out. Similarly, life is so uncertain that we can lose someone without having the chance to say goodbye.  More than just a regular fashion post, I'm writing this as a reminder for all of us (including myself) to live a life of purpose and thanksgiving. Blessings are everywhere. We just need to find positivity in all things.  


In fact, our very own Miss Universe Catriona Gray is testament that the journey to greatness is never easy. She may have come a long way to win the crown but it sure is worth it. On her IG feed last March 19, 2019, she posted: "I realized that night that those doors that closed on me in the years prior were not denying me but redirecting to something even better than I could have ever dreamed of. Sometimes the Universe has bigger things in store for you, you just need to stay true to yourself, surround yourself with people who believe in you, put the work in and have faith." These are indeed inspiring and uplifting words from the Queen of the Universe.


So whether you're having a challenging day or week, know that it's only temporary, you'll have better days ahead. Wow, seems like I've done a prelude for Holy Week. LOL. Now let's go back to my OOTD.  Summer is the best time to experiment with different looks. My outfit is actually composed of two garments combined, creating a chic and polished ensemble. The trick is to just find a tube dress in your closet (even formal ones are okay) and combine it with another stylish top. In my case, an offshoulder plaid top is my choice to look more flattering.


After which, decide on your footwear and accessory depending on the occasion you're dressing up for. More often that not, I create my looks depending on my mood. Go extra by curling your hair and wearing heels. It does wonders especially when you need that boost of confidence.


Hoping that you learned a thing or two. Truly grateful for the continuous support. Wising everyone a good day ahead. Remember, we are blessed in more ways than we can think of :)

Summer 2019 Must Haves

And just like that, it's Summer Time again. You've probably read hundreds of fashion articles so I won't bore you with another OOTD for today's post. Instead I figured sharing with you some summer essentials for 2019:

EAU DE PARFUM
Expect to sweat in this scorching heat. Stay fresh all day with just a spritz of your favorite scent. In my case, the perfume I use all depends on my mood. For this look, I'm using ICON Perfume by Fragrance Box PH .



HANDLE WRAPS
Summer is the best time to exercise the 3 B's : Big, Bright and Bold. If you're not a fan of wearing accessories, then your bag can be your style muse. These Aurora handle wraps by Oh My Bag PH  can actually double as a bag scarf. Such a perfect match for my chic bag.



ECO-FRIENDLY BAGS
For your upcoming beach trips and escapades, I encourage you to use bags that are not only trendy but eco-friendly. Avoid using plastic at all cost; not to mention, it is tacky. Invest in something you can use multiple times. I'm currently using this Gingham Print Bayong by Bayong Manila which for me is the perfect bag size to carry my towels, wide brim hat and summer essentials.


BAG COVERS & ORGANIZERS
With our very busy lifestyle, our bags also need the best care possible. I'm glad that I found comfort with Oh My Bag PH . They have various bag care products that you can checkout, from bag shapers for your Louis Vuittons to raincoat bags for your Longchamps to their fun-loving bag organizers. Take for instance their Gingham Indigo Backpack cover to which I used  to protect my bag from getting wet while I take a quick swim. 


Being a girl, I am guilty of bringing more than I need. I am not a light traveler and I doubt I will ever be one. That is why I make it a point to use bag organizers for my vanity products. Plus points for this very cute 'Owly Winky' design.


Happy Packing dear readers! Enjoy your summer vacation :)

The Look of Love

Love fills the air once again now that it's February. No matter what your relationship status may be, always find ways to do you; more often than not, happiness does not always equate to a significant other (but of course, it would be great to have someone!) What's important is to celebrate the love month with a smile. After all, it's all about appreciating people who matter, the ones that add meaning and inspire you to be your best self.


For those of you who are blessed to have a date this Valentines, my look recommendation for 2019 would be wearing Silk in the shade of gold or silver. It's very classy and highlights your body's silhouette.


Dress by Petit Monde

If you still want to go for the default look of wearing a black or red dress for your date night, then standout by choosing a dress with the right cut and style. 



Happy Hearts days Everyone. Life ain't easy but I'm a firm believer that someday, it will all be worth it. We just have to trust the timing of everything. 

Do remember that everyday can be Valentines Day. Make it a point to always look good because you'll never know who you'll meet or what business opportunity you can get. Trust me, it will instantly bring out the confidence in you. Here are more Women Dresses that you can take inspiration from. Stay beautiful bellas!



xoxo,

Beautiful In White

Congratulations to Mariliese and Lester for starting a new chapter of their lives. What a revelation to know that for Lester, it was more than just love at first sight. The moment he laid eyes on Mariliese, he described it as automatically becoming "low-batt". Damn, what love can do to a person.


It's true that one of the biggest decision in your life would be choosing who to marry. No man nor woman is perfect, but as a couple, one can make perfect memories together. So happy and excited for them :)

The Ceremony was held in Mary The Queen. Reception followed at Fairmont Makati Hotel. We had so much fun. Food was sumptuous and company was even better.


For this wedding, the peg I went for was simple yet ethereal. This powder blue dress with a lowcut style is my take on modern revival of grecian dresses. To finish the look, I went with eyecatching accessories and nude shoes.


Still hoping and praying for the guy that my heart would say yes to. 
In God's perfect timing, I know it would all be worth the wait.

Love

Cruising In Style

What better way to end December but with a beautiful memory of our recent trip to Vietnam. So glad that my family and I was able to unwind after a tiring yet productive year.




I don't travel light. In fact I never do. The fashion blogger in me brought out some of these looks. Which one is your favorite? :)


Our trip was unique because rather than traveling by plane, we reached Vietnam via Cruise. It was such a carefree trip and I must say that staying on board is like living the life of royalty. 


Upon boarding, we were briefed on Safety procedures just in case. Hello Life Vest. 



Here are some of the things you can do while the Ship is sailing and once you reached Vietnam:

EXPLORE THE SHIP'S GRANDEUR
Take a stroll any time you feel like it, but I would say that it's extra magical at night. Make sure to get a room with a balcony. It is a must for you to enjoy your journey.







WATCH SPECTACULAR PERFORMANCES
Trust me. Watch the shows at least once, but if you can, why not do it every night. You'll be amazed with the world-class acts, with themes ranging from romance to drama, to even magic shows.  Some of the shows I got to watch were Love Around the World , Mystical Land , and SPIRITS by Vincent Vignaud. 


There are also live music you can enjoy by the Taverna if you want to chill by the bar and enjoy the breeze


ENJOY UNLIMITED FOOD
I've always been one of the boys when it comes to food.  Imagine, you can eat as much as five times a day, to your heart's delight. Whatever kind of cuisine you're craving for, it's available on-board. 


There are inclusive meals , as well as dishes you can pay a little extra for. And when I say you can eat as much as you want, if you're hungry at around 11pm, there's still so much food to satisfy your tummy.


Steak and Seafood Platter

BOOK ONSHORE EXCURSIONS
As much as you enjoy the luxurious life on board, make it a point to book some onshore excursions to ensure that you get the most out of your stay in Vietnam. Since you have limited time to explore on your own, best to join the group excursions so that your transportation and must see City Highlights are all taken care of. 


So here we are at Ho Chi Minh City. During our first day in Vietnam, we visited the Reunification Palace which served as the presidential home and workplace of South Vietnam.


Here we also got to visit the War Remnant Museum where we got to view fighter planes, tanks and conventional bombs used during the Vietnam War. 


In terms of economic losses, North Vietnam was said to have lost 100% of their powerplants, with 200,000 dead and injured.


I enjoyed our second day excursion more since the setting is more chill and very instagram worthy. This is Po Nagar, located in Nha Trang Vietnam.


Can't blame me for being fashion forward; I think I just got myself some fans and haters. A little Tourist shot to mark the territory, lol


If you are into marine life, then you'd enjoy the Institute of Oceanography.



And yes, while in Vietnam, do not forget to try their Pho (Noodles) and Seafood.


RECHARGE AND RELAX 
Once you're back from your excursions, spoil yourself by getting a full body authentic Thai massage on-board.  Your body will eventually thank you.



APPRECIATE ART 
If you have an eye for culture and the arts, then a visit to Minh Phuong would be a great idea. You'll find various fine arts and handicrafts that you may want to take home as a souvenir.


You can also opt to listen to some music while visiting Hon Chong Promontory, which also offers a fine view of the Nha Trang coastline.


In our case, this particular masterpiece caught dad's eye and voila, it is now in our office. The stunning art panels are labor-intensive, made from mother of pearl lacquer.


GET SOAKED
If hitting the gym is not your thing, then why not indulge yourself with either the jacuzzi or swimming pool for some refreshing splash. 


LET GO
Whether you want to clear your thoughts or just need a change of scenery, by just looking at the High Sea leaves you breathless. It's so majestic that you tend to simply live in the moment. The panoramic view of nature gives you so much good vibes. I enjoyed my balcony room so much that I can't help but dance to some music while enjoying the cool breeze.


ATTEND THE GALA
The last night on ship will be a time where all will be gathered for a dining experience to remember. The Crew will also perform while the guests enjoy their sumptuous dinner.


If you feel like taking a notch higher, then glam up for some pictorial while on-board.


GO DUTY FREE SHOPPING
Ladies and Gents, how about some of these?


CAPTURE IT
Whether it be selfies or group shots, best to bring these memories with you. After all, it isn't often that you get to have your hotel lodging on a cruise.




'til the next adventure. Thank you 2018.

Love
