Outfits of the Week : Printed Leggings

I totally forgot to blog about this video! hehe. When I was less experimental with fashion, I thought it was a taboo to wear printed leggings as they tend to be too loud. Well, some printed leggings still are loud these days, some even have complicated prints. But when you find the perfect print, then you just know that it's time to go with the trend! 

Here are some printed leggings outfit ideas!

No Surgery Lip Enhancer Review

*This product review may get divided reactions so let me start by saying that I am very much confident with what I am, how I look and my natural physical appearance. Else, why would I even post photos of my face with terrible acne and imperfections? This post is just merely a product review showing the product and the results after using it. :)

So, have you ever wondered how it feels to have Angelina Jolie or even Nicki Minaj's lips? If you are a Pinoy, perhaps Anne Curtis'? You could stop wondering now because I'll introduce a product that promotes fuller lips in seconds!

These are natural lip enhancer tubes from a website called www.fullips.com.


The tubes promote blood circulation therefore making lips appear fuller. 


Where to get it : www.Fullips.com

Price per tube : Please click this link for the complete list of prices


Watch the video for the demonstration :


If you did watch the video, I hope you just ignored my pimples. (Well, now that I mentioned, I guess it just made you notice them even more. lol) I am actually on my "period" week so the little ones are just popping on my face. It also caused my skin to easily turn pinkish-red even with just little friction. (Does that also happen to you when you are on your period?)

The lip enhancers come in 3 sizes to fit your natural lip size :

SMALL
MEDIUM Oval
LARGE Round


Here's a guide to help you pick the right size


Here's how my lips look BEFORE using the lip enhancer...

And here's the AFTER photo!

It may look like I just got out of the PS clinic... But the thing is I took the photo right after putting the tube on my lips. I found out that the lips will look natural after a few minutes. 

Here are some answer to questions you could be asking now:

1.) Are you trying to look like Rihanna?
-I AM NOT. :)

2.) Isn't it dangerous?
-According to Fullips, lip cupping has been around for yours and years. It is a known method to increase the circulation of blood therefore making the lips bigger and fuller. They also said that they've been around for about 10 years now without any issues from the users.

3.) Are there any side effects?
-I just noticed that it made the area around the lip a bit reddish. Plus it kind of hurt when you use a hard suction. I guess the key here is to gradually use the product. 

They always remind users to use a light suction and to keep the tube on for about 15 seconds and then pull it off. Many yet short uses is better than a one time yet longer use because you get the power to adjust to the tube and also to prevent your lips from looking like they are going to pop because if too much fullness.

I like this product and I think it's such a great invention. But if you will use it, please use it with care and suck at your own risk.(hehe)

Here's a final photo. I swear to you that I am not even pouting in the AFTER photo.

How to make an Easy Rainbow Fishtail Loom Band

1 out of 10 people right now is into making loom bands. (But that's just my statistics, so it's actually null and void. lol) What's true, though, is that a lot of kids are into it. I first heard about it when an office mate of mine sent us a message telling us she was selling a loom band set. (She's also a blog reader, so hi Ethel!) What I'm trying to say is that this was actually famous months ago already so me uploading a tutorial is really kind of late.

Here's my version of the rainbow fishtail loom bracelet!


Fun fact! Did you know that loom bracelet making was invented by a Malaysian in 2010? He was in the US at that time studying mechanical engineering when he came up with the brilliant idea of weaving colorful rubbers together! Who would have thought his creation would be such a big deal now? 


I wonder if I could invent something or start a trend that would hit as big as the loom band craze...

Anyway, here is the short tutorial! 


My mom is more into it than I am. I only know how to make this certain style but she knows a lot. Lately she's into making Hello Kitty and Piggy loom key chains. hehe


There are hundreds of possible styles and my mom is forcing me to make more loom tutorials when she found out that my loom video is getting more hits than my normal videos. hehe. I'm not sure, though. Would you guys not mind if I make more loom tutorials? 




Let us know what you think!

Rush Hour

One of the things that makes being a young professional in a corporate center difficult is the  travel from home to the office. I don't know about your country but the train system here in the Philippines during rush hours is just crazy! When you have to be somewhere at a certain time, you have to allot 2 to 3 hours just for the train ride. Talk about crazy.

Good thing, I work at an odd time. My work starts at 2 PM so I could leave the house at 1 pm and still be early for my shift. 


If there's one thing to love, though, is the fact that you are surrounded by people whose passion is also the same as yours. It's also nice to see them dress up! I love going to Ortigas and seeing young men in nice and crisp ties and young women in power dresses. 


What do you think about my hairstyle, though?

My friend and I were walking around the area trying to look for a new place to take photos then we found this hidden pretty wall! It's so perfect because the colorful drawings made my black dress pop out.

2 Ways to Fishtail Braid

Hello, my girly girls! I apologize for the lack of posts this month. I just have a few things going on right now. There are lots of products to review, clothes to film for YouTube, deadlines to beat... I haven't even done my laundry and cleaned my room. (hehe. Yup, I do chores, too! Don't you think women that move around the house are impressive? If I were a boy, I'd be impressed with women that work around the house! hehe) I'm not trying to complain but just in case you were wondering... ^^ I can't wait for August to come so I would have MOOORE time for this blog and for my YouTube channel. I am very excited to tell you the news! I want to keep you hanging for a bit more so please stay tuned for that announcement. hehe

Anyway, here is another hair tutorial. Thanks to my friend, Flora, for letting me use her hair for braid tutorials. If you follow me on Instagram, the braids that you see me post there were also done on her hair.


Did you know that there are actually 2 ways to fishtail braid your hair? 

Here is the tutorial :




REGULAR Fishtail Braid 


REVERSED Fishtail Braid



From afar, the two braids look identical, don't they? But if you look close enough, you'll see that there is actually a huge difference. Nonetheless, both technique are very easy to do and look extremely gorgeous!

Thanks for reading! What a gloomy weather we have today, eh? Typhoon Glenda is hitting us tonight so everyone please stay warm, dry and safe!

Barbie

We have to admit that we once wished of being Barbie when we were a kid. I mean, all those beautiful dresses, hoards of shoes, fancy castle and Hollywood hair. We can't leave Ken, of course! Now, take a look at all those amazing things that come with being Barbie. Life as plastic really was fantastic back then.


But as we grow up, we realize that life is far from Barbie's close-to-perfect world. Not everyone has long legs, V shape face, perfect skin and to-die for hair. Also, it's not easy to find a "Ken" that would woo us until the end. 

But if there's one thing we could surely try is to dress up like her!  






Top : Barbie
Leggings : Romwe.com
Hair Bow : Newfrog.com


Some of you may say that the outfit looks a bit childish. I kind of agree, to be honest. But a little childish thing every now and then won't hurt, right? Especially when it's Pink and Hearts! We surely won't be able to outgrow those two things. 


Long legs, perfect skin and beautiful hair or not, know that you are beautiful in your own way! So smile and shrug off the idea of "perfect"beauty. Never let them tell you that a plastic doll is the standard of beauty. YOU are prettier than what the world is telling you!

Style Ideas : Little Black Dress

Once you go black, you can never go back. That saying goes well with Little Black Dresses, too. Once you realize how versatile and timeless a LBD is, you will just find yourself suddenly craving for more. 

Here is a video of me showing simple ways to style a Little Black Dress! Oh, and a few tips, too.




When wearing a clothing piece that looks as dainty and as classy as a black dress, it is important to wear the right underwear, as well. 

Don't you hate brassieres that either look too flat or way too big for you? How about those under wires that feel really uncomfortable? Of course, we will never forget the all-time killer - those ugly and unflattering panty lines! Haven't you noticed that when you wear an underwear that doesn't feel good, it makes your whole day a mess, too?

The solution is to wear a clean, crisp and good pair of undies!


When I want to feel extra good, I simply slip on these WACOAL undies. They are fool-proof! The top perfectly lifts the chest area, making them look fuller. The under wire has the right support, too. The bottom also does a get job being seamless. I can wear satin dresses or skirts and cotton shorts or pants without the fear of having the unflattering sew lines.


Truth is, women should wear fabulous underwear even if we are the only one who could see it. Because having a great day starts with feeling good. And what better way to feel good than to feel light and comfy from the inside?

Anyway, here are the 3 dresses that I wore in the video.

Kitty Corner

While some of you are taking out your pretty dresses and tank tops, us here in the Philippines are taking advantage of the weather and taking out our sweaters. It's because we live in a tropical weather and we don't always get to wear warm clothing pieces... unless it's the rainy or Christmas season. 

Christmas is still almost half a year away so we're only left with the rainy days. 


I love sweaters but the problem with my body is that I am literally always hot. I'm so hot that when my friends hold my hand, they would always complain how they  feel so warm. I even joke that I should go to a snowing country and lend my hands to people that feel too cold in exchange for a few bucks. (lol) 



That's why you often see me dress up in cool clothing pieces. When you see me in a sweater, it only means it was raining that day.



I fell in love with this K sweater that I saw on Rosegal.com. I like the simplicity of the white sweater and of course, my initial is printed on it.

What's your favorite weather?
