Dangling Orbs

On me: Forever 21 top, Forever 21 skirt, Franco Sarto heels, Franco Sarto purse, Runway On A Dime bauble necklace

On hubby: Sean John shirt, Lucky Brand jeans, Sundancer slippers

Man, its already fall and still is hot. Some days are even warmer than the usual summer and we picked the day to do this shoot. Please excuse the exhaustion aura that could be seen in the pictures. :)

So it's not sweater weather, so my first fall 2104 fashion might as well be summer themed with my short sleeve top with dangling sequin orbs (hence the title). It actually is a crop top so I pair it with this bodycon skirt from Forever 21, great for hiding any gaps a crop top will have. Then I opted to wear my very comfy and super worn shoes from Franco Sarto. I believe I have this for like 7 years already? And still is functional! Very great quality if you ask me! Then I rummaged through my unorganized closet and found out I haven't used this Franco Sarto bag ever since I bought it. This bag was only worth $25 at The MSRP was around $100 plus and so I was grinning with delight when I scored this. 

My necklace is a sample item from my jewelry boutique: Runway On A Dime. We're still working on the kinks of the website but you can always preorder what you see on Instagram or Facebook. Do like Runway On A Dime's Facebook page since I will spending lots of times there too posting awesome jewelry pictures and giveaways! Fancy that? Then like now or forever regret it. :P

Follow me on Instagram because I post sales and score deals there, not so much on my Facebook which is still under construction and might very well be since I spend most of my time in Instagram, Blogger and Youtube!

Have an awesome weekend!

Review: Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream

Do you want your eyes to express everything but your age? Our Age Defense Eye Cream is a comprehensive solution for all your eye concerns – whether its dark circles, wrinkles, puffiness, crow's feet, fine lines, dryness, sags or bags.

This cream is perfect for your eyes since we reject the idea of using harsh chemicals for the delicate eye area and use natural and organic ingredients instead.

We've packed in cutting edge peptides like Matrixyl-3000 and Tripeptide-5 with an ocean based Retinol and botanical Hyaluronic Acid. We know that's not enough – so we've added lots of antioxidants, organic vitamins and minerals, pure plant oils and botanical actives – Aloe, Witch Hazel, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Vitamin C, Cucumber, Beeswax, Jojoba Oil, Tamanu Oil, Green Tea, Licorice, Eyebright, Avocado Oil, Flax Seed Oil, Rose Hip Oil, Lemon, Lemongrass, Vitamin B5, Lavender and Chamomile (to name just a few!).

Our cream works well on all skin types and leaves your skin looking and feeling firm, plump and young. Get fast and lasting results and be at the receiving end of compliments!

I haven't applied eye cream in a long time and I am telling you I regret that I always skip this important step in my skin rituals. I did use other eye creams in the past and not really seeing any change, I then decided to stop and not use them. Given the opportunity to review this, I now see how relevant to take care of the skin around eye area. True to words, this product gave me some insight how crucial an eye cream is. Since I am past 25 years old, and according to what I have learned in my benevolent nursing career, skin starts to disintegrate slowly and will happen speedily if you smoke or ingest harsh chemicals. In order to combat these, one must be prepared in all measures. So I gave it a try and was astounded how fast it dries and has lightweight property for easy application. It has a soothing cool effect to wake up tired eyes in the morning and to remove baggy eyes from a midnight of Netflix or video editing. Overall, I like the effect it gives me so much the more I apply it before my makeup routine to give me a flawless canvass to work on. 

Like other skincare products, patience is the key to witness a change. Just give it time to adjust and you will see effects in a few days and weeks. Don't forget to stay religious to your routine. Me? I love doing my skincare rituals, it is relaxing and therapeutic.

Purchase it here on Amazon. Check out their other products too!

Office Hours

On me: Piperlime top, Michael Michael Kors bolero, Forever 21 bodycon skirt, Forever 21 purse & Olsenboye wedges.

Today's outfit is a work inspired-comfy-yet-sparkly theme. I think the addition of a glitter top is a surprising twist for an office apparel. I love this top, not too loud but can be tamed with appropriate corporate colors like black, maroon, navy blue etc. And it could be worn for happy hours after work or date night. My wedges - yup that tall black one is unexpectedly comfortable. Wedges are structured shoes that will follow your every move at work without giving you pains instead of the stiletto ones w/c undoubtedly is best for special occasions and parties. A simple yet striking approach at work clothes is a great way to show your style - at least for me, that's the way I like it. I can't say no to glitter either. :)

By the way, I will be launching my jewelry website soon! See and hear all the details at the official Instagram page. A giveaway will happen on the launching date! And of course, I will also host a contest here and there. So many things will happen so be sure to follow.  See you there! 

 More cute work clothes at ModCloth & at Piperlime.
