Booties, Manes and Big Tummies.

Hello, hello everyone!

It's the weekend over here in sand land and also happens to be sale season once again. We all know the drill when it comes to sales and of course, I could not help but shop. Hehe. Finally scored the H&M skirt I've been eyeing for a while (it was marked down to half it's price so I had to get it!) 

Stopped by my favorite shoe shop to well gawk at the amazing shoes. Can you believe that most of these babies cost below 2000 pesos? The ones with the red tags, were all 1000 pesos and below. Now if only I had the money and the closet to fit these babies in. Too bad they didn't have much on my size at the sales area. :( 

Also I found these adorable baby shoes (weren't on sale but they were too cute to pass up) that were just adorable and affordable. My mom picked out the red pair while I went for the more casual everyday-wear sneakers for my lil guy. I cannot wait to pair these shoes with his outfits! Hehe. Looks like the lil one may end up like his mommy. ;)

Ending my post with a collage of these super adorable baby costumes I found online at the Toys R' Us store. I'm planning on checking out if they have any of these costumes available in the nearby Toys R' Us here. Crossing my fingers that they do! I know it isn't Halloween yet but these are too cute to pass up! Which one do you like the most?

Forever New

Armed with a charged camera, tripod and the cats for moral support, I successfully was able to shoot my outfit yesterday. Haha! When you have a 2 month (soon to be 3 months this 13th) baby boy and no one in the family who is tech-savvy or willing to take your pictures, it's hard to take photos for your ootd; but thankfully last night, when Eli feel asleep, I was able to take some photos. Mind you, not the best ones and I honestly preferably like taking photos outside but like last time, this shall suffice. Hehe.

I originally planned on wearing just the maxi dress but considering the fact that it would probably get a bit chilly where I'd go, I ended up wearing a cover-up thus this look. I personally think it gives off a hippie vibe (maybe cause of my crazy amount of long hair too.) All I need is a cute flower crown, a change of more au-natural accessories and I would have achieve a unique Pocahontas look. Haha! Well for yesterday I went for modern hippie.

 Outfit details: dress - Forever New || belt - Urban Behavior || tank top worn inside - thrift shop || necklaces - turqouise beaded necklace from Lulu Supermarket, chain with beads necklace from Accessories from Splash & white one a gift || rings- white ring worn on the right hand from Lushae Jewelry, silver ring a gift

As you all may know I'm not residing in the Philippines anymore ever since my pregnancy and one of the things I dearly miss are the blogger events (Bloggers United, fashion shows, etc.) Well just because I'm here doesn't mean I'm out of the loop (well not completely out of the loop) and for all the interested bloggers/fashionistas out there, here's an event you might be interested in going to.

Trishie of Your Fashion Architect is holding her first ever clothing line launch this September 20. If you are a lover of  anything and everything girly, soft, glittery then her line will most likely tickle your fantasy plus a regular blogger in the blogsphere, she's a wonderful lady with a sense of great style. Expect your favorite bloggers like Verniece Enciso, Dani BarrettoBea Benedicto, and Jessa Ang to be around at this said event because they'll be judging the best dressed of the night awards. If I were back home, I probably wouldn't miss this! For more information and RSVP head over to Trishie's blog, Your Fashion Architect. Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Chains n' Stones Can't Break Your Bones.

I almost panicked for a bit right now because I thought I lost the DIY tutorial on my unorganized list of favorite blogs. Of course, I just had to share it with you. Now this is for all the chain and rhinestone crazy loves out there who love the look but don't wanna break the bank achieving/getting the item. For a cheapskate like me, DIYs are my ultimate best friend especially with jewelry. This one from Honestly WTF, I especially love and cannot wait to try out. I seriously need to go to the craft /hardware store asap. Enjoy!

Hello lovelies! I am so happy that I can finally post up an outfit post. I practically had to beg my brother though to take my pictures and I didn't even use my camera since I had no idea I drained out the battery (I left it on since the last time I used it. Boo.) So this isn't exactly my usual standard outfit shot but hey nevertheless still an outfit post. Hehe. 

Anyways it took me a while to figure what to wear considering the fact I have a very minimal wardrobe at the moment. When I found out I was pregnant last December, I pretty much jumped on a plane back home and only had a small (really small) luggage to bring thus only bringing clothes I needed & could use. Not to forget, most of the "clothes" I did buy during my pregnancy are all maxi dresses. Well with the tummy flab finally gone, I wanted to dress up sexy but not too sexy thus this outfit. Now my skirt is actual a maxi skirt and with the heat nowadays, I didn't exactly feel like wearing something constricting or long. So what do you do with your maxi skirt? Fold it up tuck it in along the waist and ta-da! A nice short skirt. In my case, the skirt was fitted so when I folded it up it sorta look like a bandage skirt. Quick tip/idea for those bored with the current clothes in their closet.

You can barely see my earrings in this picture and I forgot to ask my brother to take a close-up of my necklaces. Boohoo! Lesson learnt! Haha.

Fifi decides to make a special appearance on my outfit shot and also my son's diapers. Haha! Oh the joys of having my brother take my photos.

As ecstatic as I am to finally be able to put up an outfit post, the highlight of my day (as always) is my son. He wore his first outfit today! Usually he goes out wearing a onesie and then pajama bottoms to keep his feet covered, well today after buying shorts a couple nights ago (because his dada "grand-daddy" wanted them for him) I decided to dress him up. The whole show: onesie, shorts, socks and shoes! Good thing my lil one was a trooper this morning. This is my lil guy's ootd. Haha! (Can you believe it but his onesie is sized for a 9 month old and his shorts are sized up for 6-12 months. He's only 2 1/2 months old and already wearing clothes meant for older babies! Thank you Lord for a healthy boy.)

To end my post, showing you my lil guy all smiles at the camera. He is like this every morning. No joke! Such a blessing to be a mom and to a kid who is as joyful as he is. Have a great weekend loves!
