Fearless. Empowered. Stain Free.

I was one of the lucky girls who was invited to be part of the launch of Ariel’s new product built to wash 100 kinds of stains, in just 1 wash!

The launch was also a summit for women which aims to empower us all as 10 women from different fields, equally fierce and fearless, get to share their stories and insights. The venue was buzzing with excitement!

The New Trend: A Modern Conservative Bride

Several Filipino celebrities got engaged early last year, and thus, at the end of 2014 and this year 2015, we can expect a lot of Celebrity weddings. Of course,the much awaited part of the wedding is always the bride in her wedding gown. If you ask my style, I have always been a conservative type, meaning when it comes to wedding gowns, or at least those worn during the actual wedding ceremony, I prefer gowns that are not too revealing. But “conservative” wedding gowns need not be boring or unimaginative. You can have a jaw dropping gown without having too show too much skin. Want to have ideas? Here are some I found at http://www.tbdress.com/Cheap-Latest-Wedding-Dresses-3577/:

A sweetheart neckline is very common and fits almost all body types. You can wear it underneath a lace top for the ceremony. Then later at the reception you may let go of the lace top for a more dramatic look.

Pretty Ravishing in Red

If there is one staple in your closet, what is it? Well mine is red. I like this rich color because it signifies strength, confidence and sometimes power. I usually wear red on days when I feel less confident or if I am about to present something to a number of people. The color somehow gives me the boost that I need.

Wearing red can be intimidating at first. Others find it too strong. I did too initially. I just have one rule when it comes to wearing my favorite color and that is keep it simple.

How do I do this? Well for one, I am always particular when it comes to fabric. The fabric will set the tone of the dress.

Trench Coat Ideas

Every year I am looking forward to our office Christmas Party because it is the time to let loose and interact to all the members of our organization. Aside from all the fun, all of us are looking forward to the Christmas theme. I am because this year our group will be sporting winter fashion! We are eyeing the prize on this one so we are going to put our best effort to come up with the perfect runway look.

When I was told that we will have to strut the runway with Winter Fashion, the first thing that came to my mind are fur and coats. For a tropical country like ours, it is tricky to get coats because although we can already feel the December chill, we do not have snow so an overly thick coat will not work. I got my fingers working and searched for the trench coats at Dressve.com and here are some of my favorite Dressve trench coat:

I am just so in love with this white cherry Trench Coat. Who will not smile upon seeing this?  It is almost half the price at $43.69. Get it here

Trust the Expert

Expertise is the term acquired when one knows about the details and peculiarities of a particular topic of interest.

When it comes to music equipment and accessories, I go to the expert on brand new and second hand items and that is Musiciansfriends. I am not a musically talented person. However, my husband is. That is why I am sometimes exposed to rock music. However, my knowledge on it is purely general ideas and terms. Since Daddy S is a musician, gifts are on this hobby of his. Of course, I want it to be useful and something that will improve the sound of his guitars. I refer to this website for not only the best deal of musical equipment but also to read reviews and product ratings.

Kids Dressing Up for the Holidays!

One of the things I looked forward to the Holidays is my kids wearing their Sunday best. It is so nice to see girls wearing cute dresses and boys in polo shirts in colors of Christmas. I guess it adds to the festivities seeing our kids all dressed up.

I really like the color red, so for girls, I would choose red dresses like this for church:

Lolita at work?

I admit, sometimes corporate dressing can be boring. Which is why I look forwards to smart casual Fridays at work because it is the time of the week when we can be expressive with our sense of style. My style usually depends on my mood for the week. There are times I want a laid back style, while some days I want to bring out the fashionista in me. It is always fun and definitely something that I look forward to every week.

This week, I came across cosplay when I was browsing through a friend’s Halloween party pictures. Among all the cosplay outfits, I really find Lolita dresses interesting and cute. I am an all-out girl and it means I love laces, necklines, and mini dresses. It got me wondering, can I pull it this outfit off on the corporate world?

It is a good thing I found these Tidebuy Lolita dress which I think will work in the corporate setup.

Going All out on Decor

My ideal Christmas decor is a setup that involves the whole house. I want a tree full of trimmings, a nativity in the garden, life size Santa Claus dolls and a busy Christmas village. Even our throw pillows are to be in Christmas mode. T

The dining room is no exception.  I envisioned red or blue or green table linens and complete Christmas themed plates and glass, as well as table napkins. Oh, just thinking about this excited me already!
