Brighten Up Your Day

It's so funny how my umbrella seem to match my outfit that day. I didn't even like its color until I saw these photos. :p Anway, it was raining hard that day, hence, the need to use the umbrella. But this cute yellow skater skirt from Romwe just made my day brighter. Definitely the best pick me upper! It is flouncy and dainty and the material feels very comfy. :)

Fall Into The Gap

Hype this look here:

I incorporated neon into my school attire one Saturday. I opt to wear only one neon bracelet because it attracts too much attention by itself. Some curious people even asked me if they could touch it to see if it is really spiky. It's not, it's just plastic. Haha! Anyway, the shirt I'm wearing also has neon details as well. The blazer on the other hand made the outfit more put together for school.

Shirt - Gap
Blazer - US Brand
Pants - 168 Mall
Shoes - Norwegian brand
Watch - Swatch
Ring and Bracelet - Quiapo

Hope you like my school outfit! :)

Shop Feature: Shy Shop

If there is one word that will describe Shy Shop, it would be cool! Their products are absolutely the coolest I've seen among online shops. They sell novelty items, accessories, bags and wallets among others. They actually offer tons of products and choosing your favorite item from their shop would be so difficult. But nonetheless, I made a list. :)

Here are my favorite Shy Shop items:

Candy Slim Wallets - P120

Dress Up Jewelry Organizer - P180

This would be perfect for my messy accessories. :)

Ice Lolly Umbrella - P80

Anchor Stripe Pouch - P125

Spin Pins - P65/pack

Cheaper than the ones from the mall!

Funny Kids Raincoat - P185

I wonder how would Z look in them. :)

Super Mini Pochi Purse - P100

The Incredible Gyro Bowl - P120

This is perfect for Z now that he's now eating a lot!

Canon Lens Cup - P260

Cool! Nuff said.

Bangs Curler Clip - P40
I have really flat and limp hair and I think I need this one. :)

Beauty Eye Mask with Gel Pad - P75

See what I mean? :) There are actually other products that I like as well, but these ones are my most favorite! I think that their products are not shy, at all, of cuteness and affordability. Shy Shop is based in Marikina but they ship their products anywhere within the country. :) Please do check out their shop and don't forget to like their Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/ShyShop

Anyway, Shy Shop sent me some products to share to you, my lovely readers!

Shoe Haul from Zalora!

I got a special discount code from Zalora for my birthday so I decided to use it to buy some new shoes for me and my baby Z. I was so ecstatic when they started offering Scarlet shoes because they're really affordable and almost all of the sizes are available. I ordered a pair of flats for me and a pair of baby slippers for Z last Friday and paid them the same day through Metrobank deposit (which is the most convenient payment method for me). Unfortunately, the package came in just this Wednesday. Probably because I live in Bulacan or probably because I opt to pay via bank deposit which takes more time because of the confirmation, etc. But nonetheless, I am happy because the package has already arrived. :)

Pretty color, right? :)
Scarlet A210 Flats in Powder Blue - P399

The shoes are quite small. I usually wear a size 6 or 36 and I really don't know why this pair does not fit me well. I don't know if I just have fat feet or what. Haha! I emailed Zalora about this. Unfortunately, they only replace defective products or if there has been a mistake in size or color of the product upon delivery. But it's okay because I absolutely love the color of the shoes! :)

Banana Peel Ninja Baby Slippers - P220

I actually had a hard time figuring out the sizes of Banana Peel baby slippers from Zalora's website so I decided to check out if Banana Peel has their own site to check for sizes. Fortunately, they have one and I was able to check the sizes of baby slippers from there. :) I don't want to go all the way to the mall to check sizes cause I think it would defeat the purpose of online shopping. 

Anyway, this pair from Banana Peel is just so cute! The print is very versatile and can match any outfit. It fits Z perfectly. It would probably last us a few months because he's growing up so fast and I just wanted a pair of slippers that he can wear especially when we are going out. I am just so glad that baby Z likes them.He even wants to eat them. HAHA!

I'd say that my first shopping experience with Zalora was okay. There are still points of improvements such as the speeding up of the payments done via bank deposit and the shoe size chart. But I am still satisfied with their service especially that they are offering free shipping fee for all orders.

By the way, you may buy the products that I have also purchased HERE and HERE! :) Don't forget to use the discount code MishRendon1 to get a 10% discount on your orders. :)

I Can Exceed My Limitations!

I have never been the athletic type, although I've always wanted to get engaged in sports. I can barely breathe after a few minutes of jog and, in my opinion, my built is not suitable for sports. I spent elementary and the first two years of my high school dealing with books and friends and crushes. :p Then came the summer of 2005... I was invited by a friend to try out for our school's cheering squad, the School of Saint Anthony (SSA) Seagulls Pep Squad. I cannot tumble or do splits then and I dance awkwardly. Fortunately, most of the members are graduating and they need all the students that they can recruit and train to keep the team going. I did not know what to expect, but I know it's going to be tough.

My seniors! SSA Pep Squad Batch 2003- 2004 - JNJ Champions

They say cheer leading is not a sport. People just got it all wrong. Cheer leading needs (LOTS of) discipline, including the exhausting and deadly training after school and on weekends, watching what you eat and as well as keeping up with your academics. The training, by the way, consists of cheer dance, gymnastics, ballet, hip hop and jazz classes. You just can't absent yourself from any training unless there is a very important reason for you to do so. It's not that you'll get kicked out of the team, but you would not be able to gain new skills. Cheer leaders are versatile performers and athletes. And we are not mean girls, just like what the movies portray. We are a family in our team! And even if we are now in our separate ways, we still communicate with each other and reminisce our days. :)

With my cheer family! :)

Having no background in gymnastics and dance, this great experience has taught me to exceed my limitations. I can still remember when I first learned to do the perfect cartwheel. It was two weeks before my first competition and my knees are still bent whenever I do a cartwheel. My gymnastics coach told me that I have to do it right because my team is counting on me. That conversation served as an inspiration for me to persevere more. I was able to do a cartwheel without bent knees on the day of the competition and thereafter. There was also this another instance where I was scared to fly. Everyone was required to fly in least one pyramid sequence.  Honestly, I am not that good of a flyer. I could only do the basic stuff and I was asked to do some complicated routine. My coach told me to trust my lifters and myself and I would be able to do it. And I did! To top that off, we won nationals! :)

My last competition! National Cheerleading Championship - Champions! :)
Whenever you learn a new skill in cheer leading and gymnastics, you just want to exceed what you can already do. I started with a cartwheel, then front walk, then back walk, then side aerial, then backhand spring, and so on. The skills are endless and it is up to you to best yourself! Unfortunately, I have already retired from cheer leading and I don't think my c-section scar would allow me to tumble again. :) But I still feel accomplished, that being someone clueless with the sport, I was able to do my best and win all of my competitions. I can now run for 10 minutes without feeling like I'm dying. I was able to acquire a great physique which amazingly shrank fast after I gave birth. I can still do fancy cheer leading stuff such as scorpions and heel stretches that I never imagine that I would be able to do. These accomplishments would not be possible without the help of my team mates and my amazing and patient coaches! I would definitely not be able to exceed my limitations if not for the trust that they gave me. 

Some fancy stuff that I learned. :)

Since cheer leading is a very physical sport, I don't think it is possible to exceed your limitations if you are bothered with bad hygiene. Of course, with all those daily strenuous training, it is important to keep a good hygiene for you and your team mates also who would be lifting you. Thank God for the new Safeguard Active with 12-Hour Odor Protection! It could help athletes to exceed their limitations and their personal best just like Coach Rio Dela Cruz. To know more about him and his accomplishment, better check out this video here: #BeatCoachRio by Safeguard Active. :)

As for my most favorite cheer team, it is no other than the UP Pep Squad! Don't forget to watch and support them at the UAAP Cheerdance Competition at the SM MOA Arena on Saturday or on Studio23. :)

How about you? How did you exceed your limitations? :)
