Pick the Right Cover-Up for Your Summer Get-Up

For most mommies out there, picking the right cover-up can be as challenging as finding the right summer outfit itself. Cover-ups can save you of a day of concealing imperfections with your oversized summer bag without cramping your style if you choose accordingly. 

A sheer cover-up is perfect for a one-piece swimsuit, exposing just the right amount of skin since the opening is all front. The fringe effect adds a little style unto the ensemble.

Look ethereal in white. This long cover-up is a flawless choice. The texture of the dress is not too sheer for less exposure and  is best paired with a bandeau bikini top since the cute of the neckline is deep-v.

Be pretty in prints in a tunic dress. This is perfect for those who wants full coverage because it not see through and has a thicker fabric than the usual cover ups. It also doesn’t limit itself only at the beach because you can wear it while running simple errands in the city by pairing it with some white sneakers.

A Visit to Manila Ocean Park - Oceanarium

After our fun mermaid swim experience at Manila Ocean Park, my newly found blogger friends and I were also given a chance to visit the Oceanarium. I've been to the Ocean Park at Hong Kong way back so I already had a similar experience. I was with my sister though who was a first timer and it was my first time to go to Manila Ocean Park so I was still excited to visit the place!

Swim Like a Mermaid at Manila Ocean Park

I am pretty sure every girl wanted to become a mermaid at some point of their lives. This could be easily attributed to Ariel of The Little Mermaid and our local mythical sea creature, Dyesebel. Well, I tried curling my hair and dyeing it red but I think that's the closest I got to becoming a mermaid. Honestly, I still have that silly dream up to now so I am grateful when Manila Ocean Park invited us for a mermaid swim experience.

The Mermaid Swim Experience is Manila Ocean Park's latest attraction. In a nutshell, it is a 45 minute program featuring basic swimming, how to glide with fish tail underwater and proper breathing techniques. Initially, we were made to sign a waiver and were oriented by our instructors from Manila Ocean Park regarding the do's and don'ts in mermaid swimming. Later on, we transferred to the pool area which surprisingly contains salt water filtered from the Manila bay.

For that, I salute all moms who has all sacrificed a piece of themselves for their little ones.

As an advanced celebration of Mother's Day, how about we have a small baby shower party for a lucky reader here in my blog? I actually never had a baby shower and the idea seems interesting to me. I mean you get to celebrate the coming of your baby with family and friends. Plus, you won't have to spend anymore on some baby items cause they'll be provided as gifts. :p Are you ready?

Green Gator

I really love dressing up my little man. He looks absolutely adorable on anything! I think most of the items in his wardrobe though are reds and blues so I opted to put on this green shirt which my mom recently got from OshKosh. I think my mom got this during the 3 day sale at SM Fairview. I forgot the price but I think it is around P300. Quite pricey (for me), but definitely worth it!

We've had this pants from the US since Z was less than a year old but we were only able to use it just recently when he gained weight. I cannot even carry him anymore without straining my arms. Before, this pair of pants would drop down to his waist and now, it is only good for a few more months cause it hugs his belly just right.

It's a good thing, too, that we never have to purchase footwear for Z, except for the sandals that he uses at home. I find kids' shoes quite expensive and sometimes, ridiculously priced. :p Everyone (friends and relatives) always gives him a pair so there's no need to purchase for the meantime. This good as new pair is actually a hand-me-down from Kuya Caleb, Tita Alicia Mayer's son. Looks good on him, right?

Top - OshKosh, Pants - Random brand, Shoes - Nike

Z and I rarely go out so I cannot make as much kiddie outfit posts as I want to. And sometimes it's hard to make him stay still for the shots. :p Hope you like this super cute one though!

Meet Chef's Noodle's Newest Endorser - Sam Concepcion

This week, Chef's Noodle introduced its newest endorser - actor, singer and dancer Sam Concepcion. Numerous media and bloggers witnessed this jam packed event at their Robinson's Magnolia branch. There is no doubt that Sam is perfect to be the newest face of Chef's Noodle. Not only does he have that fresh and youthful vibe which is reminiscent of Chef's Noodle itself, but he is also one of the most sought teen actors today. Just like Sam, Chef's Noodle is a rising star as a new player in the food industry.

Sam says, "“I am truly honored to be part of the Chef’s Noodle team. The restaurant has been known for its delectable dishes and high culinary quality.  Who would not want to be associated with that? My friends and I love to hang out and try different kinds of food. I especially love Chef’s Noodle because you get to enjoy a delicious meal at an affordable price. It’s a cool combination of a fast food meal and a fine dine setting. The interiors of the restaurant are as inviting as the appetizing menu. I can’t wait to invite my friends to try Chef’s Noodle and love it the same way I did.”

I personally enjoy Korean food, but I find it too strong for my taste sometimes. I love how Chef's Noodle was able to make Korean food enticing for Filipinos. Offering a wide array of mouth-watering food choices, Chef’s Noodle boasts of dishes especially crafted by no less than award-winning Korean celebrity chef Choi In Sun. Among the must-try menu items when one visits the restaurant are Chef’s Noodles, Starking Fire Sushi, Bibimbap, Japchae, Haemul Seafood Pajun (Korean pancake with shrimp and squid, spring onions and bell pepper), Leek Shrimp Twigim, Chicken Kas (breaded chicken fillet with white creamy sauce), Spicy Dukbokki, and well-loved desserts such as ice cream and gelato.

Don't miss out on Chef's Noodle's delectable menu! Visit its branches at University Mall (4050129), Atlanta Center (5765054), Robinsons Magnolia (6567033), SM North EDSA The Block (3765367) and Robinsons Place Malolos (0917-5486187).  Soon to open: SM Megamall.

Tmart Review: Black Leather Handbag

As I have always said, I am a huge online shopper. Although most of the time, all I do is window shop. :p Anyway, let me share to you the latest product that I acquired online. This one’s from Tmart.com, an online shop which offers a wide range of products from makeup sets, accessories, and bags to gadgets and consumer electronics. They literally have everything in their shop!

The product that I’ll be reviewing is the Black PU Leather Handbag. I personally chose this product because I love classy and spacious handbags that never go out of style. They go well with any outfit – from casual to business. They can also carry everything you’ll need for everyday.

Dimensions: 12.60" x 5.12" x 9.25"
My first impression about this product is that the PU leather material looks very nice. It does not look cheap at all considering that the product costs only around $11. The bag is very roomy too for all the things I usually put inside my bag such as my umbrella, glasses case, vanity kit, etc. I love too how the handle is very thick because I think bags with thin handles tend to deteriorate faster. It is also amazing how the bag keeps its box shape despite the weight of the contents. 

Personally, I prefer bags that do not have zipper as an opening because it’s too much hassle to open bags for security inspection at the mall or at the MRT or LRT, especially when I have books with me. This one is perfect for me because the main opening only has magnetic locks but it has two zipper enclosures in the middle and the side of the bag for my valuables. Moreover, it also has two pockets inside for cellular phones (although I do not recommend using it for that unless you’re willing to give away your phone :p).

If there is anything I did not really love about the bag, it would probably be the lining inside. The fabric is not just very appealing to me. Aside from such fact, this product is very great considering that it is very affordable. Tmart also has tons of bags that would definitely suit everyone's taste. Check out the rest of their huge collection at Tmart.com!

Affordable and Quality Baby Products by Baby World

Before I had Z, I was literally clueless with what exactly should I buy for him. Of course, I knew of the basics (bottles, diapers, clothes, etc.) but I didn't know how many should I get, what brand should I purchase, and so on. I had to read numerous articles over the web to finally complete my baby shopping checklist but they are not seem to be accurate. I guess you'll never know what you really need until the baby comes out, most especially for newbie moms. 

I remember coming across Baby World during one of my shopping trips at the department store. I think I purchased some Baby World washcloths which we still use up to now. Being the clueless mommy that I was, I became too brand conscious and bought expensive items that we only used for quite some time and some we didn't use at all. I was skeptical in buying products which were locally made because I didn't want to compromise the quality of the products I'll be using on Z. Looking back, I definitely wish I had known Baby World products thoroughly.

At a lunch event last week, I was finally fully introduced to Baby World - a complete line of baby products manufactured by Hilton International Philippines. Hilton International Philippines started in 1993, and since has continued to provide the most affordable and quality products for your babies needs. Some of these baby products include:

• Baby Bibs
• Baby hangers, pins, and diaper clips
• Bath Tub
• Blankets
• Cotsheet
• Feeding Bottles
• Feeding Dishes
• Kids Rider
• Potty Seats
• Puzzle Mat
• Rattle
• Teether
• Wash Cloth & Bathrobe

Perks of Online Shopping

If you have noticed, most of my blog posts lately have got to do with shopping. Not that I shop a lot, but I kind of do it frequently. I assure all of you though that I do not spend that much on my purchases. I admittedly shop mostly over the internet. I just do the actual shopping for groceries and other essential needs for me and Z. I wish though that we could do grocery shopping online. I don’t think we have that yet in my country. That would definitely be stress free and perfect for employees who are on a graveyard shift. Anyway, here’s a list of the things I generally love about online shopping:

photo from http://jenarellano.blogspot.com/

1. Save Time
One of the best things I love about online shopping is that it saves me time. No more travel time! With that, you could do so much more at home such as accomplishing chores, spending time with your family, or just having your much deserved rest and relaxation.

2. Save Money
Another perk I see from online shopping is that you save tons of money. You won’t get tempted to buy things you do not really need and you won’t be tempted to spend money on food either. There are also tons of coupons and vouchers that are available online, such as the ones at www.epicvouchercodes.co.uk, to help you save money on your shopping. What I love about these coupons and vouchers is that they are not limited to clothing and accessories, but includes products for home, fitness, food, and anything under the sun. I think you could even get larger discounts online than the discounts offered at the mall. 

3. Comfort
Lastly, it is more comfortable than shopping at the mall. Why not skip the travelling part to and from the mall, when you can do the shopping at the comforts of your home. Also, you won’t have to carry numerous shopping bags around. You just have to wait for the courier to drop your items right at your doorstep. 

If you know how to do it right, online shopping could definitely help you in lots of ways. Don’t forget to avail of coupons and vouchers, purchase only from credible online shops, buy in bulk to maximize the shipping expenses, and buy only things that you really need. Hope this makes you reconsider online shopping! :)

Stick with the Basics: Black and White

Gone are the gloomy days and season of dark clouds. It is finally time to welcome the sunshine and all the colors the spring has to offer. The arrival of spring does not mean we should also get rid of the basics. Although it is finally time to incorporate some eye-catching patterns in our clothing, black and white items should always be present in our closets. Black and white clothing, in the fashion arena, never fade and are considered as low-key, sophisticated, and elegant. Definitely the most appropriate attire for every occasion!

Lacking such basic item in your closet? The amazing news is that the White And Black Fluid Striped Shirt from Romwe is on sale for only $9.99 or 75% off the item! Only 400 pieces will be sold so don't miss out on this one. The sale will start today and will last for 24 hours only.
