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:

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 .

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.

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.

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 :)
