Red, Black and Gold

Christmas Outfit

I've always dreamed of spending Christmas somewhere cold. I've spent Christmas with my family here in the sunny Philippines, either at our house in Bulacan or at the province, all my life. I wish to have a white Christmas for a change. It bet it would be extra fun now that Z's here. I haven't decided where exactly yet though. But here's what I imagine: I'll be with my family, of course. We'll be sipping hot chocolate while opening our presents near the Christmas tree. There will be a fireplace nearby to keep us warm. Well, that would have to wait. :p

For the meantime, here's what I dream of wearing on Christmas day, without the coat of course unless I want to die of heat stroke. Lol! A red, black and gold ensemble is so classy and always fool-proof. This simple red dress from Romwe paired with that cute belt from Oasap is just so cute! The bag from Oasap, earrings from Chicnova and shoes from Wholesale-dress.net make the whole look chic. There's so much great finds online! What do you girls think? :)

Have you prepared what to wear for the holidays already?

My Flawless Beauty Transformation

Initially, I thought that my post-pregnancy problem would be losing all the weight that I've put on. Everyone, especially my lola, kept on reminding me to watch my diet cause I might never be able to get back in shape. Luckily, I got my pre-pregnancy figure in no time. Thanks to breastfeeding, sleepless nights and law school! Now when I look at myself in the mirror, I do not really see any post-pregnancy damage except for my stretch marks which I have come to love and accept. But when I come to think of it, my real beauty problem is actually something I've had for long: my uneven skin tone.

Dear Santa, this Christmas I wish to have clear, even and smooth skin just like Z's! :)
I've didn't really have the nicest skin growing up. Yes, I rarely have pimples, but my skin is not even and makinis at all. I was very tanned when I was in elementary school because of frequent swimming since my sisters and I have free access to a swimming resort nearby. We'd go there almost everyday to frolic under the sun. On top of that, my family and I would go to the beach at least once a year. Who could not resist the sun, the water, and the sand? No one! 

I was a beach bum!
(Clockwise) Bolinao 2010, Guam 2009, Bataan 2011 

Upon entering high school, I got more conscious with my skin and refrained from swimming and being exposed in the sun whenever I could. Of course, we'd still have our annual beach trips. However, I was never able to achieve the skin tone that I was aiming for. I still have that dark face, arms and legs and got lighter skin tone and better skin texture on my body and thighs. I know that tan lines are hot. But after quite some time, they could look very unpleasant. Moving forward, my pregnancy has also contributed to my uneven skin tone. The darkening of some body parts is just inevitable, especially that I had a baby boy. Sadly, my underarms, the back of my neck and inner thighs got darker. It subdued but never returned to its original shade.

Almost due! You could probably see what I am talking about here.

If I would be given a chance by the generous Santas of Flawless to have the clear and even skin that I've been dreaming of, I would definitely try their Flawless White! I've tried different brightening, whitening and lightening soaps, lotions, oils and creams, you name it! But none of them seem to work and even out my skin tone. I think it's about time that I try something that would enhance my skin's appearance from the inside. There's nothing to be feared as I am assured that the procedure is safe cause it is done by only by the licensed doctors of Flawless. Not only do I get the clear and bright skin that I want, it also serves as an anti-oxidant. It's like hitting two birds with one stone!

If you are in dire need of a flawless beauty transformation just like me, better check this out: In celebration of its 11th birthday, Flawless is inviting everyone to take advantage of its 1 + 1 beauty blowout this National Flawless Month. If this isn’t the best time to boost or jumpstart your top to toe beauty transformation, then I don’t know what is. Go to www.flawless.com.ph or visit a clinic near you for more information.

Dear Santa...

My Christmas Wishlist by starmishie

Hello girls! Have you completed your Christmas wishlist yet? There are actually more items that I wanted to include in this list but let's be realistic, I can't have them all. Haha! I am actually already satisfied with the Lacoste bag I got from my mom, but here's the rest of mine:
  1. Heart Cut Out Dress from Romwe.com - So adorable! I'd wear this all the time. :p
  2. Cat Face Dress from Romwe.com - Who could not resist this dress? It's so cute!
  3. Heart Charm Bracelet Watch from Oasap.com - I've always wanted a silver or gold watch to match my corporate-ish outfits. This one is just perfect!
  4. Candy Colored Blazer from Oasap.com - One cannot have too many blazers in law school.
  5. No Heel Wedges from Oasap.com - I need one badasssssss shoes. :)
  6. Apricot Lace Boots from Wholesale-dress.net - I've been wanting to have one for so long. :(
  7. Skull Envelope Bag from Wholesale-dress.net - I need a nice clutch for everyday use.
Aside from those, I want to have a new pair of brown prescription circle lens. I lost one of my GEO Fresh Browns from Lensvillage.com for some reason and it was my favorite pair! I'm stuck with my glasses for the past weeks. I would also like to have my own blog domain! Would http://mishrendon.com or http://lbdandonesies.com would be nice? :)

There you go! I hope Santa's reading my blog. Teehee! What's on your list?

Z's Birthday Party!

Hello guys! Here's my long overdue blog post about Z's birthday party. :p It was held last November 18 at Mcdonalds Regalado Fairview as I have mentioned in my Planning For Z's Birthday post. I could say that I was really satisfied with Mcdonalds Regalado's service, it's just my guests were running late. Haha! The manager did a good job hosting the party and the food was on time. They even let us extend for about 30 minutes since we started the party super late.

Games for the kiddos!

Grimace and Birdie (don't know her name) danced for the kids. :)

Instant pinata. 

The cake was done by Ms. May of Sweetbox Specialty Pastries and Sweets. We didn't get the chance to eat it during the party due to Mcdo's policy. But we ate the whole thing when we got home. :p I've never really liked fondant cakes because it's too sweet, but this one was really nice. The fondant was, of course, really sweet, but the chocolate cake itself was not so much. Rather, it was moist and yummy. :)

We hired a photo booth because most of my guests are adults and I'd rather have them take home photos during the event than key chains that they would never use. :p We hired Happy Face Booth and they also did a really great job! They were actually there earlier than us, so they had the whole thing set up already even before we arrive. They also did the layout which I really love and the quality of their print outs are really nice.

Z's Now 1!

You probably all know that I am a young mommy. Having Z was really unexpected. I won't say it was a mistake, but merely something or someone that I did not expect at that point of my life. But nonetheless, I came to accept what was given to me and I couldn't be any happier. His smiles, his milestones, his laughter, even his cries makes me happy. I learned how to love someone more than myself without any pretensions and I can truly say that I'll do anything for this person without any hesitations. Z's now one year old and time really goes by so fast! In no time, he'll be talking nonstop and running everywhere. But I'd rather take things one stop at a time and enjoy every moment and every milestone that he achieves. I wish my son all the best things in the world that's why I am doing my best as well to finish law school and eventually become a lawyer. I wish for him to be a good and wise boy when he grows older. But baby, please don't grow up too fast! :)

Z's Photobooth Shoot

Here are the photos that I took which were used for Z's photobooth layout. We hired, by the way, Happy Face Booth. I had a hard time taking pictures of Z considering that I was alone and I had to take the photo, grab his attention, and keep him in his place all at the same time. But it was fun! Z got to wear his cowboy costume which I got from Mommylist from Multiply. :) I'll post about his birthday party soon!

Till next post!
