My ZALORA Wishlist

I got addicted with online shopping when I was pregnant with Z. It is convenient cause I won't have to exhaust myself in the mall. You just have to browse through an online shop's products, order for items you want, settle your payment, and wait for your items to arrive through the mail. Easy, right? But be aware that there are safety risks when purchasing from random people online because there are cases of bogus sellers and some packages even get lost. If I had only known Zalora then, I would most probably have made my purchases there! They basically have everything! They have a huge selection of clothes for men and women, shoes and accessories for all ages, children's clothes and babies' feeding needs (They have Tommee Tippie bottles!), and more. They offer free shipping for all orders anywhere in the Philippines. And the best thing about Zalora is that transactions with them are easy and safe, even if you choose to pay via credit card, bank deposit or COD) No more bogus sellers and scammers!

Anyway, I'd like to share to you some of the items I want/need from Zalora! I initially wanted everything, but I'd keep my list short with the things I need. :) Some of you probably know that I am about to enter law school this coming semester and I have actually already enrolled. (Yay!) I figured that the laid back "beach wear" I used to wear in college is not anymore appropriate for law school. I need to basically change my wardrobe with more proper pieces. 

1. Katy & Abbey Black Patent Flats

Sad to say (LOL), my flip flops won't be proper to wear to law school anymore. So I need something  comfortable, but classy such as this black patent flats. This would be dressy enough but would still be perfect for walk-athons around the University Belt area. This pair would be my stepping stone to wearing office heels on a regular basis.

2. Kelsey SL Combi Dress with Sash

This cocktail dress would be perfect to wear to days where I need to report in class or during other special events. This dress goes a long way when paired with the right pieces. It looks comfortable with its light colors and its simple style. Hello corporate look!

3. Fletcher Checkered Contrast Cuff Shorts

Of course, I have to include things for my baby on my wishlist! Z's growing up so fast and most of his clothes do not fit him anymore. This pair of shorts would be perfect for when Z's already a year old and can already be brought outside. Its getting hotter and hotter everyday which makes him perspire so much, so a pair of shorts would be a better choice than pants. He could use this and have outfit posts with me! :)

4. Tip Toey Joey White/Navy Shoes

When I saw this cute pair of shoes, I just have to get it for Z! I have not bought any shoes for Z yet (except for the ones he wore during his baptism), cause I can't see why babies need to wear shoes when they can't walk yet. I find shoes on small babies uncomfortable. Anyway, this shoes would be perfect for Z to practice his walking. :)

5. I Love Koi Asy Knots Luxe Maillot

Okay, so this is not a need. :p But I really, really want to have a new swimsuit! I used to have tons of two piece swimsuits. Unfortunately, I can't wear them anymore because of my visible mommy marks and C-section scar. This piece would be perfect to give me a subtle sexiness while hiding all the flaws. I'd definitely wear this to a last minute summer outing to the beach!

Prescription Glasses featuring Firmoo.com

I have been a bookworm all my life! But I developed bad reading habits such as reading in a dark room or reading while in a moving vehicle, hence, my poor eyesight. I actually did not need to wear prescription glasses until recently, when my ophthalmologist concluded that I need glasses to wear when I get back to school. Anyway, I love my eye doctor cause instead of persuading me to buy my glasses from him (which could cost me 3,000 pesos or around $60), he gave me a prescription and told me to get some cheap glasses outside! (You know how some doctors would do everything just to make more money from their patients.) Luckily, my very generous sponsor, Firmoo.com, sent me my first pair of prescription glasses!

I received a pair of black Unisex Full Frame Acetate Glasses. This pair only costs $42.70! It is definitely cheaper than getting my glasses from my doctor. Every pair of glasses bought from Firmoo.com comes with a spectacle case and eyeglasses bag, micro-fiber lens cloth, one screwdriver and extra screws. Anyway, I find this pair very chic and classy! I settled for acetate glasses cause I am very clumsy. I actually accidentally dropped the glasses already, but it is still good as new! No scratches caused by the drop at all.

I had a hard time choosing a pair because they've got tons of glasses to choose from and I really don't know what kind of glasses I want. Choosing a pair is actually simple if you already have a pair of glasses in mind, cause ordering from Firmoo.com is easy and organized. You can simply minimize your selection by choosing the size, shape, material, price, and type of frame of your glasses. I limited my choices by choosing among medium-sized aviator and wayfarer frames. You may use their try-on system and upload your photo to see if the pair you want will look great on you! I actually wasn't familiar with eye prescriptions so I sent the exact prescription made by my doctor to Firmoo and have them interpret it. I am extremely satisfied cause they got my prescription correct. The shipping was also fast. The glasses arrived only two weeks after I sent my prescription considering that they had to prepare the glasses and the package came all the way from China! 

I am definitely happy with my new glasses! Aside from I can now see things clearly, these glasses make me look smart. :p I also love the fit of the glasses cause it stays in place and does not droop down my nose. I did not have a hard time adjusting to my new glasses. I actually sometimes forget that I am wearing them! 

Visit Firmoo.com now to get your own pair! They are still offering free glasses for first time buyers and free shipping for two or more orders. Aside from prescription glasses for Men and Women, they are also offering prescription sunglasses
