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.
