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 6pm.com. 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.

MY Konjac Sponge Review


Sponge comes in a completely sealed packaging in soft condition. After use, hang the sponge to dry. Sponge will shrink when it's completely dry. This is perfectly normal. Rinse and allow sponge to fully absorb water to reuse the sponge.

Natural konjac powder made from konjac potato, and it has the addition of bamboo charcoal extract

Rinse and allow sponge to fully absorb water. Sponge can be used with or without your favorite cleanser. Gently massage face using sponge in circular motion. Rinse sponge after use and hang it to dry.

I was impressed at how soft and how slippery this feels on my face. While working and rubbing it in, it generates freshness, more like a good cold feeling in my face, almost like it is freshening you up without trying too hard. I also extend it to my neck, moving in concentric circles, working it on my pores with soft strokes. You don't need to press too hard. After drying, I feel that my pores are tighter and all that's left is a moisturizer. I actually skipped the toner on this one to experiment - it has the same effect with all the natural and organic ingredients, so I then just applied my usual moisturizer. There was one night that I deliberately skipped my moisturizer to see if this works overnight without it. By next morning, my skin still feels smooth, the nutrient properties worked miracles on my dry skin.

Although I got a sponge that is directed towards oily skin, I can still say that it worked and I didn't experience any reaction at all. I don't use any cleansing brush like Clarisonic & such so I can't compare it with them. But, on the other hand, I can say that this works so much better than my drugstore facial scrub. Using that everyday seems a bit harsh to my skin so I stopped it and opted for this instead. I was a little bit worried about hanging it to dry because then bacteria will grow given the moist nature it has but the company said it could be boiled before use and they suggest getting a new one after every 3 months. 

To purchase and try this out, check them out on Amazon.

Propresser Garlic Press Review

Looking to squeeze a garlic press into your budget? The Propressor Garlic Press gives a most impressive performance. Made of beautiful stainless steel, it turns mincing garlic into an easy 1-2-3 task. Just place the garlic clove in the press, skin and all, then squeeze the handles together, and the garlic comes out minced and skinless. Then, just remove the skin from the press and throw it away. It cleans up very easy and comes with a small brush to aid in cleaning out the grating. 

If you have a pressing need for this, you can get it for the incredible price of $18.99! You can reward yourself with one of these at Amazon.com.

Our rating is 10/10, we just love it, it makes mincing garlic so easy and no joke. I am not getting paid to say this. Try it out for yourself and be amazed.

Summer Don't Go

On me: Free Culture chiffon, Forever 21 tank top, Peter Pilotto for Target skirt, Moddeals glitter oxfords, Forever 21 purse & Von Maur necklace.

Oh summer why do you have to go? Fortunately for me I live in California where it is always sunny & me and the hubby could go to the beach anytime. Still I hate the thought of summer ending! Days are shorter but I'm excited to see how Fall will be here in the California deserts. Yep, hopefully it could be cold enough so that I could participate in the sweater weather trend.

For moi outfit, I played with a fall color which is green or in my case, apple green. My chiffon top provides a breezy feel so it is wearable during these end days of summer Accessories are neutral - glitter blush shoes and light beige purse, so that it complements well with my graphic skirt. I was planning to wear another light colored necklace but then decided to add a pop of color. The red necklace alone added a pop of color screaming, "Look at me!!!". Top knot hair is also the way to go for that laid back casual look. 

I will be posting a Get Ready With Me: Beach edition on my Youtube channel. Also, follow on Instagram, Facebook if you must - giveaways will be posted! Congrats to the latest giveaway winners: Rachel H., Dhez B. and Karin S.

Have a great week fashionistas!
