March Romwe Haul



Let me just say "Yay!" for being blessed with these goodies from Romwe. These goodies seem like to me a reward for doing my all during the past semester. I am now just praying for the best until all of my grades are released. Anyway, these items were actually already at the post office during the first week of the month, but I only had the time to actually pick them up after my exams. Here are the items that I got:

Contrast Hem Sleeveless Khaki Dress - http://www.romwe.com/Contrast-Hem-Sleeveless-Khaki-Dress(63.9900)-p-40918.html
I've seen the dress in Romwe's collection for a long time now, but I find it kind of expensive as compared to their other products. However, I now know why such was priced. The fabric is quite thick and it is very well made. The length, too, is just right for school. Ugh! Can't wait to sport this dress next school year!

Asymmetric Panel Layered Chiffon Pink Vest - http://www.romwe.com/ROMWE-Asymmetric-Panel-Layered-Chiffon-Pink-Vest(24.9900)-p-80454.html
This pink top is too pretty! Although this needs a cami underneath, the style looks very elegant. I actually got this for my mom, though I think it is quite huge for her. Oops!

Vinyl Panel Oblique Zipper Pocketed Cream Coat - http://www.romwe.com/Vinyl-Panel-Oblique-Zipper-Pocketed-Cream-Coat(39.9900)-p-74670.html

This jacket is so gorgeous!!! When I first saw it in the bag, I didn't really like it. I was expecting the beige part to be made of faux leather as well. But when I was able to try it on, I can't help but be wowed! It looks very stylish and it fits me well. The only dilemma I have with this jacket is that it has to wait for the ber-months. Aside from that, it is LOVE! :D

Can't wait to share these items to you in an outfit post!

The Appraisery: One Stop Venue for Coffee, Clothing and Collectibles




I frequent Cubao Expo almost every single day as my friends in law school love to eat and hang out there. But I have never tried other places to eat aside from the usual Fred's or Alan's. What I know is that Cubao Expo has numerous unique concept stores and restaurants, aside from the usual shoe stalls. However, what I didn't know before our event is that this place have much more to offer without breaking the bank. One of these unique places to visit at Cubao Expo is The Appraisery.


Owned by Victor Prieto (who actually mans the place himself), The Appraisery is one concept store where you could find literally everything - from items for gaming, clothing articles, and great food and coffee! I could say that this place is a man's go-to place slash heaven, although I think that the ladies would definitely come back for their dishes and drinks and the clothes they sell.

Even if you are actually not familiar with card games, the people from The Appraisery would willingly teach you how to play.

As I have said, they also have clothes and accessories aside from gaming items. This is not your ordinary thrift shop cause all the clothes and shoes they have in store are branded items. What they actually had in mind was for people to come and have their items appraised and for them to resell the item. Hence, the name. Just in case the items turned out to be not the type they are looking for, they'll give you an option to donate the items to a charitable institution that they are helping.

Little Man




It's been a (long) while since I posted something about Z. Well, he's now 2 years and 4 months and he's a very active little boy! He likes to sing a lot and he loves to play. If you've been following me on Instagram (@mishrendon), I recently posted a photo of him with his busted lip and chipped front tooth. He figured into an accident and bumped his face while playing with his nanny last week. I know it's normal for kids, especially for baby boys, to get bruises and scratches every now and then but I can't help but worry most of the time. I try calm myself, with the encouragement and help of my friends from law school, and I just think that boys will always be boys, as many people I know have said. Anyway, here's one of the outfits he wore during the past week when we went to Centris' Sunday market. :)






My mom actually got the top from Centris for less than P150. I just cannot remember the exact price. We saw it hanging from one of the stalls there and I figured that we just have to get him one since he has few sleeveless shirts and this one's perfect for summer. The short pants, which I love on him, were from Benetton. As compared to other brands, this one has the softest cloth which I think is the most comfortable pair that he owns.

Hope to share more stories and photos of Z with you this coming months! :)

Latest Zalora Haul



I have the tendency to shop impulsively at times, especially when I am stressed. I end up online shopping the whole day and leaving tons of school work unfinished. :p My recent shopping haul consists of different items from Zalora Philippines. I chose Zalora because I wanted to use some of the money left in my Paypal account and it is one of the few online shopping mall in the Philippines that offers safe online transactions. Plus, I needed also a case for my mom's Ipad mini. The cheapest ones I found was at Zalora.


This Toshi Ipad Mini case in Purple is definitely the cutest! It is very convenient to use and is not too heavy. I am not sure though with the quality of the product, but it looks like it will last us a long time. This one costs around P600+.




I just cannot have too many ballet flats. This black pair from Mi Mieux is one of the comfiest I have tried. Actually, all of the flats that I am using right now to go to school with are from Mi Mieux. My feet never gets tired and hurt even after walking all day.



To save up on my shipping costs, I added this sanitizer from Human Heart Nature. Zalora offers free shipping nationwide for purchases which amount to P1,000 and above. Otherwise, I'd have to pay P100 for shipping. It is always better to maximize our shopping by availing of free shipping and other discounts, if there are any.


What's on your latest shopping haul?
