My 2-Day Pre-Travel Juicing Detox

It is my second time to go on a detox program. The first one was last year (read about my post here),  after the holidays. This time I detox prior to our family vacation. Since it was no longer my first time, I considered not blogging about it anymore, but since many of you are still interested in the whole experience, here I compiled (and answered) the most frequently asked questions:

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

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.

Getting Warmed In the Office

The Christmas season is in the air. The chilly wind at dawn is a first sign that the cold season is on its way. Even at the office, we can already feel the cold weather. The airconditioning is colder than usual even at lunchtimes and in the afternoons. Most of the time i find myself shivering because even my blazer can not keep me from getting cold. With this cold weather, Christmas cardigans are a must have in my closet. However, since i go to the office, i need one that can still look corporate. Here are some of the possible choices I found at Tbdress http://www.tbdress.com/Christmas-Cardigan/

Inside Mom Kat’s Bag

It is time for a bag raid!

Compare the contents of your bag now that you are a mom to that of pre-motherhood. Big difference right? Before you were a mom the basic items inside your bag are most probably your makeup kit, wallet and phone. But now that you have kids, I am sure that you even try to limit these makeup kits into just lipstick  or gloss. Believe it or not, I even forget to bring a comb nowadays. Want to know what is inside my bag now? Well aside from my kid’s separate bags, here are my mommy must haves and are a frequent stuff inside my bag:
