Christmas List #1: Skirts of Style Ana

Top: Mango | Skirt & Tassel Earrings: Style Ana | Sandals: S&H | Backpack: Drex Fable, HKIA shop 
Watch: iWatch | Bracelet accessories: HeyJow and Parfois

It's 84 days before Christmas and is a good time to start doing your Christmas List, isn't it?

Now, top on my list is this skirt by Style Ana. They are comfy, fashionable, and quite flexible -- you can wear them anytime and in any occasion!

 This time worn with black platform sandals from Shoebox

I wore the skirt at the Mindful Mom Re-treat by Mommy Mundo. Here with Michele Alignay, book author and family life specialist

I was advised by Style Ana that the skirt should be worn high waist. I didn't know any better. So, the next time, I'll wear it, I'd keep that in mind. I will share with you guys a photo, too. :) 

There are other styles and Style Ana can even make you a skirt according to your preference. Visit their Instagram at @style_ana17. If you're interested, use the hashtag, #shopwithMoF.

Your Eyes and Lips

As I was browsing today and thinking of what to share with you my dear readers, I stumbled upon this interesting article that talks about how to emphasize your eyes and lips.

I remember a friend telling me that dark eye makeup and dark lipstick don't really go together. But well, this article debunks that in a way. LOL...

It's a good guide for you and me...

red lipstick and black eyeliner

This ’Hollywood makeup’ looks great on every woman. The only thing you need to do is choose the right lipstick shade and create an even skin tone, making a slight accent on your cheekbones.

smokey eyes and nude lips 

This gorgeous makeup is an amazing choice for an evening out. Be sure to choose the right lip gloss or lipstick for your skin tone.

coral lipstick and champagne eyeshadow

Coral or light beige shades of lipstick or gloss will refresh your whole image and make you look gorgeous.

#AOTD : iWatch and Some Stackables

 Watch: Apple Watch | Accessories from left to right: Parfois, The Bead Shop (bangle message: Love Much, Laugh Often, Live Well), HeyJow (featured here.)

I got inspiration from Pinterest for this stacking of accessories with your Apple Watch. So, I tried it yesterday.

I think I am able to pull it off. LOL.

Before, I didn't really know that I could still accessorize my Apple Watch but one day, I saw it on Pinterest, and I kinda liked it. 

I promise to get better photos next time, which shows also my whole ensemble. Unfortunately, yesterday, I had a flight to catch and didn't have time for a photo opp. I took this photo inside the plane while we were waiting to take off. 

I took another photo a little later when I got notified to stand up. LOL. This is one thing I like about my iWatch. I get reminded to stand up when I've been sitting for hours already. Other times, I am reminded to relax and focus on my breathing. Then as set I will be asked to go walking and I will be timed. I really love this fitbit!  

Another reason why I like having an Apple Watch is that I can receive messages and even calls from it. I don't have to open my bag and get my phone if somebody is trying to reach me. I just sync my iPhone and iWatch and voila! my techie life gets easier!

Cool, isn't it? 

Care to share what you like about your fitbit, too?

This new jewelry store is a new go-to place for those looking for last-minute sophisticated gift or perfect accessory when attending an event in the hotel.

Wearing Two Watches as Fashion

Princess Diana

Princess Diana was seen wearing two wristwatches to the polo matches of her then-fiancé Prince Charles. The second watch was given to her by Prince Charles, so she was wearing it for good luck. Sweet, isn't it? ;)  

We often see stacking of bracelets as arm candies. But this 'stacking' of wristwatches... I kinda like it! Ha ha!

When I Wore a Long Wrap Dress

Long Wrap Dress: flea market | Inner top: Zara | Jeans: Uniqlo | Sandals: Aldo | Backpack: Drex Fable, HKIA shop

 Shorts: Uniqlo | Accessory: iWatch
Location shoot: Poolside of Solemare Parksuites, Aseana Business Park, Parañaque City

I found this dress in a US flea market. I was not sure if it was a long dress for a very tall woman or a long wrap dress. But I fancy it to be the latter because the buttons were just half-way down the waist and it has a sheer fabric.

In any case, I wore it as a long wrap dress one Sunday. It's my Sunday OOTD. LOL. Since the first part of our Sunday was to go to church, I wore jeans underneath it. After hearing mass, I changed into shorts. This time we would be attending two birthday parties.

With my hair in a bun, I looked matronly in the first photo. While in the succeeding photos, I looked preggo. Ha ha!

Never mind. I just wanted to share that fashion and style can be pulled off with confidence and happy disposition.

Insert a big smile here.

Got a Wedding Dress, Yet?


Last week, Marriott Hotel Manila staged the most coveted bridal show, Marry Me At Marriott.

On its 5th year, Marriott features the most promising and talented Filipino fashion designers who are starting to make waves in the bridal fashion industry.

If you're planning to get married anytime soon, you can get inspirations from this awesome bridal wear collection.

The show opens with the much-sought after young designer Michael Leyva, who is getting to be known for his swirl of embroidery and tulle. If I remember it right, he was introduced as one of Kris Aquino's new designers back in 2015.

 Anne Curtis, Michael Leyva's muse, in a resplendent red wedding gown... Stunning!

Hannah Kong follows suit. Hannah who studied embroidery in Ecole Lesage, Paris, France, uses  an embroidery technique known as Lunéville or Tambour. Her style speaks of masterful workmanship highlighting the bride's femininity, daintiness, and delicateness.

 Hannah Kong's muse, Maricar Reyes

Next comes Happy Andrada's bridal collection. Happy is getting to be known for her intricately designed bridal creations, which often comes with embellishments of crystals, fringes, and feathers. For this collection, Hannah highlights each wedding gown in distinct color palette with an intricately elegant head accessory. 


The show ends with Avel Bacudio's collection. Avel was awarded Asia’s Most Influential Designer 2014 at the Mercedes-Benz Stylo Asian Fashion Week where he established himself as one of the cutting-edge designers. He got his big break when he won Smirnoff Fashion Award in 2002. For this collection, Avel tells ABS-CBN News online that he will introduce the idea of a ready-to-wear line consisting of separates with each piece carrying the gorgeous intricacies of a wedding ensemble, but having the possibility of being mixed and matched with other pieces in the collection.

 Avel Bacudio's muse, Alden Richards, who is one dashing groom!

Have you decided yet? ;)
