DIY Crystal Necklace

I've been seeing lots of nice chunky necklaces these days and they are awesome accessories to wear if you want your wardrobe to have some sparkle or an instant lift. There are lots of necklaces available at many stores and they even have different types to suit the neckline of the blouse or shirt that you are wearing.

If you feel like being creative today, you can make your own easy DIY crystal necklace especially if you already have some tools that you will need. I have tried making some bracelets and necklaces before using various crystals and beads so this DIY tutorial will be easy for me and I'm sure for you all. I found this at POLYVORE and it's worth sharing. I know a lot of women are into accessories and into craft so making your own will make it more personalized. You can even give these as gifts to your girl friends.

DIY: Crystal Necklace



Materials needed:
wire cutters and pliers
chain
crystals (with holes),
eye pins (one per crystal)
clasp.

First, cut the chain to your desired length and attach a clasp to the end using pliers. Lay out the chain and figure out where you'll attach the crystals. Next, loop an eye pin through the hole in the top of the crystal and wrap and secure the pin through the chain. Do this last step for each of the crystals.

Bags, Bags and more Discount bags!

I personally love bags, bags and bags!! When I was younger, my mom would always ask me why I buy lots bags all the time. I always replied that I love bags so much and even got to a point that I will not show the bag that I have bought so she’ll not notice it. Back then, when I still don’t have a big budget to splurge on bags I end up buying faux leather on different sizes and shapes. They usually don’t last long because the materials are of poor quality.

These days, I’m trying to invest on quality bags as I already got tired of bags ripping fast. In the end it’s just a waste of money for I end up buying one bag to another. Now, I love leather bags especially those that are made of pebbled leather bags that are soft and good quality. I have authentic leather bags from Coach, Kate Spade, Esprit and Kenneth Cole. While I also have Cole Haan and Long Champ made of other materials. So far so good, they are good brands and have good quality materials as well.

I’m also dreaming of having bags from Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Celine, Tods, and even Prada but at this point I still don’t have enough courage and money to buy too expensive bags. But in the future, I’ll invest on those branded bags if I can already afford them especially that Moda Queen online has discounts on various bags. I was in admiration on Discount prada bags, Gucci, Tods, Fendi and more that they are selling on the site. They have bags, wallets, sunglasses, clothing and accessories both for men and women.

Here are some of the bags that made me drool and want to have.

Prada Leather Handbag BR3571 - RedPrada Nappa Gaufre Leather Shoulder Bag BR4694 - Brown
Gucci Shiny Shoulder Bag - CrystalTod's Miky Large Handbag - Camel

House Slippers in Style

At home, I always see to it that I wear house slippers for I just hate the feeling of walking barefoot. Our flooring is made of marble tiles so it’s kinda cold when you have no slippers on. Slippers can also protect us from dust, wet floor if you spill any and it’s just like walking outside I feel naked without it at home. And with the cool weather creeping in it would be nice to have comfy house slippers that can warm my feet.

I was more than happy to find Dear Foams for they have wide array of house slipper not just for women and kids but also house slippers for men. It varies from open toe, mary jane, clog, bootie, ballerina, boater moc, file cuff, thong and peep toe. There are just too many colors, designs  and styles to choose from.

Here are some of their super comfy house slippers in style. Don’t you just love wearing slippers when if it is soft, comfortable and stylish? I don’t mind wearing them all day at the house.


 With many years in bsiness in selling original foam cushioned slippers and other footwear, Dear Foams has mastered the art of providing comfort through their footwear that only provides the best cushioning to their customer’s feet. Apart from that, they also offer sleepwear and accessories.

Now that the temperature is dropping everyday on many parts of the world, don’t forget to keep your feet warm and cozy!

EMERALD: Pantone Color of the Year 2013EMERALD: Pantone Color of the Year 2013



EMERALD: Pantone Color of the Year 2013

My fave color is green apart from orange and red and now that emerald green is the color for next year, I might have to bring out and use my green shirts and other stuff more often than usual. We'll be saying goodbye to Tangerine Tango (color of year for 2012) soon but a nice lively and vibrant color will enter.
Emerald, a vivid, verdant green, enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight, as well as promoting balance and harmony.

Hello Kitty Earphones

I had my moments again when I need to listen to music to perk me up a little bit. Music is my good companion anytime of the day and any moods in my life. I think I just can't live without it. While browsing online and listening music via my iPhone  saw this Hello Kitty earphones and I hope someone can give me this coz this is so cute. It maybe perfect for teenagers but I think I also deserve to use Hello Kitty stuff once in a while to bring the child in me.

A Much Needed Bike Rack

We all have different hobbies and ways on how to keep our bodies fit and healthy. Others may find walking, running, athletics, dancing and marathon as a form of exercise or hobby.  Some may enjoy being at one with nature doing other outdoor activities that maybe out of the ordinary or extreme at times. Biking is also one of the many hobbies or exercises that anyone can try. There are those who bike for few kilometers just to sweat it out while for those serious bikers joining competitions can also test their endurance.

Last summer, my bro and his family even went biking with our dog one early morning and we had a great time. It was so funny because we could not fit in our bikes inside our Taramaw FX all at once. Wish we had bike racks installed  so we can easily transport them. I'm also hoping that by next summer we can go biking again. I need to check out cracksandracks.com for suv bike racks soon and will tell my bro that we already need one. bro can opt to have bike rack installed on top or even rear of our vehicle.

Christmas Decors at Robinsons Galleria

My nieces and I went to watch Breaking Dawn part 2 at Robinson’s Galleria Movieworld on November 25. After watching the movie, we ate at Pepper Lunch located at the 3rd level of the mall then later on strolled the mall for a while before heading home. Robinsons Galleria in EDSA is one of my favorite malls especially when they have a sale. I remember going there every week even if I’m not going to buy anything hehe. The mall is spacious and tons of designer and brand name stores are also locate inside.

I noticed that the Christmas decors at Robinsons Galleria this year is not that lavish anymore compared to other years when they have much colorful big Christmas balls, Santa and more. I guess maybe they are cost cutting or their theme is just minimalist with navy blue and white theme? This is their décor for this year inverted cone shapes are filled with lights.

Fur clothing is a perfect choice for winter times as it can also exude sophistication and style.  Fur coats and fox hats of different colors and styles can make your outfit outstanding.

4 Bands That Need Makeovers for Their Next Concerts

Part of the fun associated with going to a concert is getting to see your favorite bands and musicians up close and personal. Their looks—or lack thereof—probably don't make you like their music any less, but you have to agree that some bands need an update. There are certain iconic musicians who could really benefit from a makeover, especially the following performers.

Kiss
Kiss unquestionably tops any list of musicians in desperate need of a makeover. Members of the Kiss Army might disagree, but an updated look would only benefit the legendary band. Their look is iconic and it works for them, to an extent. However, their hard-edged glam gimmick needs to take a leap into the 21st century.

By doing so, the boys could instantly make their already exciting concerts even more thrilling. More to the point, a more modern makeover might just increase their exposure and pull in a whole new demographic clamoring for Kiss tickets.

The Rolling Stone
The Rolling Stones have done a better job of keeping their look modern, but that's the problem. They've done a little too much to keep up with the times. Although Mick, especially, is well-known for his flamboyant fashion, the guys are starting to resemble grandfathers clinging to their youthful visions of themselves.

They don't need to start wearing cardigan sweaters or pants that come up to their armpits, but it might not hurt them to lay off metallic shirts and tight pants. With a slightly more subdued look, legions of old fans and new converts will focus on their music.

Aerosmith
Aerosmith requires a makeover in much the same way as the Stones. Most of the guys are aging pretty gracefully, but then there's Steven Tyler. Steven is always the exception, isn't he? His desire to stay in the limelight is understandable; he's a TV star now too. However, there's something off-putting about seeing a man his age wearing feather extensions in his hair.

Again, the band doesn't need to completely turn their backs on their fashion roots, but a subtler wardrobe and less makeup might encourage new fans to take them more seriously. Looser pants are much appreciated as well.

Fleetwood Mac
Legions of fans are extremely excited about Fleetwood Mac's reunion tour. They're dying to hear Stevie's haunting voice singing the songs they remember. The tour provides a great chance to introduce new fans to the band's music. It also gives the members the perfect opportunity to update their look and make it more cohesive.

Back in the 1970s, Stevie Nicks made a gorgeous pagan princess. That style still works today, but it would look even better if the band either followed suit or if Stevie toned it down just enough to look like she's actually part of the group.

No matter how they look, these groups are legendary. However, if they want to keep bringing in new fans, a few well-executed makeovers definitely couldn't hurt, don't you agree?

Breast Reduction Surgery: Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re unhappy with the size of your chest, breast reduction surgery might be the right option for you. It’s available at clinics across the UK and can dramatically improve your confidence, so let’s find out more. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions:

What happens during a breast reduction procedure?
During a breast reduction – which is medically known as a mammoplasty – fat, glandular tissue and skin is removed from the chest. Each boob is then reshaped to form a smaller cone of breast tissue and the nipples are repositioned as necessary.

What happens after the surgery is complete
After surgery, you’ll normally be taken to a special part of the clinic, where you’ll be monitored by highly-trained staff. Your dressings will be changed accordingly and you might be asked to wear a surgical bra to help with recovery. Many patients are let home the same day, but there’s usually no need to worry if you have to stay longer

How long will it take to recover?
Of course, every patient is different, but it should only take a few weeks for the swelling and bruising to subside. Stitches will normally dissolve and if any clips have been removed, they’ll be taken out as soon as possible. The incision wounds will take longer to heal and will probably leave small scars – but these should become less visible with time.

Who will carry out the boob job?
Like a breast enlargement procedure a reduction requires skill and concentration, so it’s important to know who will be operating on you. NHS consultants will be registered with the General Medical Council and should hold a license to practice with Britain’s governing body, so don’t be afraid to double check their qualifications and reputation.

What is the benefit of a breast reduction?
According to the NHS Choices website, a large chest can cause many physical ailments including backache, poor posture, shoulder pain, excessive sweating and skin irritations. As a breast reduction decreases the size of the chest, it can often help to ease these problems, so it’s worth finding out more.

Are the results permanent?
The skin and tissue removed will be gone for good, but it’s important to remember that breasts can grow again if you put on weight. They also react to hormonal changes and can grow bigger during pregnancy and the menopause, so it’s wise to keep this in mind before arranging surgery.

If you have a specific question in mind, don’t forget to ask your surgeon at a pre-surgery consultation.

"Don't's" for Your Prom Tuxedo

Your prom night is one of the biggest nights of your high-school career. It's a chance to stand out and to make memories that will last for years to come. It's important to look your best -- because even if you can blot out the memory of that terrible haircut, the pictures won't forget.


For men, the prom tuxedo makes the look. Make sure you look your best by remembering some of these prom tuxedo "don'ts" and being careful not to make these mistakes:

Don't Button Up Every Last Button

Typically, the more buttons on your jacket, the more formal the style. But that doesn't have to mean that you button up every last button to finish the look. You can look smooth and polished with a formal coat, but you should still leave the last button (or two) undone. Otherwise, you are going to look like tight-wrapped salami in your coat -- and that's not sexy.

Don't Clash with Your Date

You may have your sights set on a retro powder-blue prom tuxedo, but if your date plans to wear a stunning and sophisticated crimson gown, you are going to make both of you look ridiculous. Make sure you coordinate with your date to ensure that your styles and colors are complimentary, making you both look your best.

Don't Overlook Your Shoes

Your shoes aren't just functional coverings that protect you from stepping on a random nail in the parking lot. They help complete your outfit. Make sure your socks and your shoes match the color and style of your tux for a complete, polished look.

You want to look your best on your prom night, and your choices for your prom tuxedo can make a big difference. You don't need a professional stylist to make you look like James Bond -- you just need to make sure you stay away from these prom "don'ts."

Oh... I want an Oversized 2-tone Michael Kors Watch !!

A friend bought this beautiful oversized 2-tone Michael Kors watch and when I saw this my heart jumped! LoL. At first, it looked so big on me but when I tried it on, it looks fine on my skinny hand. It's an oversize watch so it's really big, I think I can suit me :).


I asked our friend F in the US who is selling watches and branded bags if she still has a stock on this watch but unfortunately, there's no more. I just placed my order on it and once she got another stock, she'll contact me. Since this will be coming from the US, I know it will take few more months to get it.


Yay! Now, for sure this will not let me sleep until I have it.. Sure sign of a watch addict eh? !!

Sure, we all want to have beautiful skin and healthy hair as it is everyone’s dream most especially women. Not all are blessed with great skin and hair but some people are just born lucky. I always envy women with soft and flawless skin and those with shiny long black hair. My thick hair, which is often unmanageable, has made me think of undergoing an intense hair restoration to keep it from being dry and brittle.

I learned that there are many factors that also contribute in the dullness of our hair and skin and that include our diet and genetic make-up. However, these days more and more products are developed and found out to very effective in treating different kind of skin problems and flaws. Argan oil, which came from a nut of an Argan tree from Morocco has been known to do wonders in our body. The cosmetic oil of Argan or the Argan oil is the food for our body, hair and skin as what experts say. Studies showed that it can prevent wrinkles, creases, crow’s feet and can rejuvenate dull skin and hair when used religiously even with just few drops every day

I’m very positive that many women wish to have a skin that is glowing and hair that is so radiant and this Moroccan Argan oil will be the answer to our beauty problems. This organic, which is cultivated free of pesticide and eco-friendly oil can do wonders on our body by renewing cells because of its high antioxidant component.

Now, knowing all the benefits that this miracle oil can do in our body, I am more than decided to include it on my skincare regimen soon for I’m totally dedicated in finding the best solution for my lifeless skin and hair.

Nicki Minaj - Super Bass Inspired Outfit

Still remember Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" song? All of us went ga-ga over that song and we could not help ourselves dancing and singing that song. Why not? It's upbeat and a great dance song, kids (that includes my 9 yr old niece) also enjoyed it too.

It's pretty easy to get Nicki Minaj's outfit just like on her Super Bass video. Oh to complete the outfit, it would be great if you also have a Fender Precision Bass to go well with your outfit.
1. Find a pink long hair wig
2. White tank top
3. Jeans shorts
4. Doc Martens pink boots

Versatile Sarong

We are still in the middle of rainy season yet I’m already thinking of summer. Ahhh… why not? Summer is a time to go to many destinations most especially the beach and have some fun. I just love the cool breeze of the wind and the sun sans humidity when I’m in the beach area or on top of a mountain resort. How’d I wish life can be laid-back all the time.

Wearing a maxi dress, shorts, tank top, loose pants with thin material and sarong are just some of the perfect summer get-up. Nothing beats the comfort that they can give during summer but that doesn’t mean that you can’t be fashionable when you wear them.

Sarong is a very versatile fabric that can be used as a clothing, head scarves, blanket, shawl or even as a towel. Versatile as it is, it also can be worn in so many ways. Even I was surprised to know that sarong can be tied up beautifully in variety of ways to make it more fashionable. It’s good to find a site that shows how to tie a sarong in so many ways I can imagine.

My fave sarong are the full ones and those that have colorful prints but there are also mini-sarongs and solid colored ones that you can opt to choose depending on your taste.

Here are my top sarong picks:

Sequined / Embroidered / "Floral-10" w/ Butterflies Sarong "Turquoise"Sarong w/ Triple Embroidery "Orange"-

Fashionable Medical Lab Coats

Medical professionals need not to be left behind when it comes to fashion. Wearing white uniforms can be boring at times but thankfully they can now buy medical scrubs that comes in variety of colors and patterns that they can use in their hospital duties. During my medical years many years ago, those pattern scrubs are still non-existent so seeing my former colleagues with their new uniforms is just refreshing.

However, white lab coats will never go out of style and use but medical professional need to make sure that only use and buy comfortable coats for most of the times their duties can be pretty hectic and toxic as we call it.

Arm Candies / Bracelets Galore

These days, arm candies of different styles, materials and colors make women drool.These accessories are the fad these days and it's also nice to pair them with bulky or big leather or metallic watches. Just don't overdo it too much, maybe 3 bracelets of your choice and a watch will be enough to make a statement. Actually, I ordered some few colorful faux leather bracelets from my friend and I'm kinda excited to finally have it and use them.

My Forever 21 Loot

I don’t usually shop at Forever 21 but when I dropped by at their branch at Megamall last June and I can’t resist buying these items. In the end, I brought home these loots. I was looking and fitting a lot of chunky bracelets but nothing seems to fit my small wrist. I saw these 2-toned bangle bracelets, tried it on and I’m just so happy that is perfect for my small wrist. I think it costs only P300.

The other one is a 2-leaf necklace, which is around P350. Can’t remember exactly how much they really cost..lol Been using them ever since and love them. I think I will to pass by their shop again when I go to Megamall soon and who knows I might find some more jewelries or even tops that will fit me.

Bargain Shopping Techniques to Bring on Your Next Travel

People travel for different reasons; it could be business related, a personal journey or just taking some time off to have some fun and relaxation. For most women, there’s something about going to another country that makes them really excited: shopping. yes, it presents the opportunity to see new items and unique ones that you might only find at your destination. You can shop for clothing, shoes, makeups or souvenirs but in your next shopping spree, make sure that you know the techniques that can make you save on your purchases.


A lot of travelers who are in tight budget find countries in Southeast Asia to be the perfect destination especially since your money can go a long way since most items are very affordable. Countries like Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand, hong Kong and Korea are known for their night markets and street shops that offers a selection of merchandise for a low price. If you are planning to go to any of these countries, make sure to practice your skills when it comes to bargaining. You’ll be surprised on how much money you can save by asking for a discount.


If you intend to shop on places such as night or street markets, it pays to learn a little of their language. Know the words for “how much” and “discount” as they can help a long way in your bargaining. Most sellers would also think that you are a local due to the basic knowledge of the language. Remember that in popular tourist markets, the prices might still be a bit high because tourists flock the place. Do your own research and look for markets that offer the same variety but are less popular among the crowd, not only will it save you money on shopping but also time since there’s less people looking around.

Music and Me

Nothing beats the joy that I get every time I listen to music everyday. There are times when I listen to fast or up beat songs in my computer to make me dance or move. My table speakers may be in full volume while I’m listening. It’s also very helpful when I feel too sleepy and needed a jolt to keep me awake while I’m beating a deadline on my work. I guess the adrenaline rush keeps my blood flowing and making me wide-awake.

I also have silent moments when all I just want to hear is soft calming music to appease my worry soul. Music with words that are striking and hitting me straight through my heart will definitely make me cry. The senti-mode is on when I’m like that and I’d prefer just wearing headphones so I can really feel the song.

I can also remember listening to the radio everyday most especially when I came home from work. Turning on the radio that I have inside my bedroom was like a routine already. I can imagine my fave DJ wearing headphones while setting all the music he has in store for his listeners. Now that I have my iPhone and the computer, I rarely listen to the radio anymore and that made me miss my fave radio station and DJ.

How to Wear Same Shirt in 8 Different Ways

This is very interesting, I never thought I can use wear the same shirt in so many ways. Ahhh.. that only shows that I'm not imaginative or creative enough when it comes to dressing up. I'm actually learning a lot on ways to dress up and mix and match clothes. Right now, I think I need to look over my closet and see what goes well into others so I can maximize the use of my clothes. There are times that I wear that same shirt anymore because it will be the same look.

Yoga Mats, Bags and More

We all know that exercise is good for our health that's why I see to it that I exercise from time to time. I may not be able to go to the gym to exercise but still I have time to exercise at the comforts of my home. Currently, Zumba dance exercise is my fave as it keeps me on the move. I'll just go online and watch the zumba exercise on Youtube repeatedly and that's where I got my dose of exercise in the morning.

I also wanted to try Yoga as it has its own discipline. I even remember printing some yoga poses that I got online. Next time, if I'm going to try Yoga, I need to purchase yoga mats and  yoga bags that I can bring at the studio.
