All about frocks, skirts and everything a modest lady needs for survival.

A man behind a woman shopping at a convenience store slipped his cell phone beneath her short skirt and shot a video, and it was all caught on tape. 

Apparently, this mom loves wearing short skirts which attracts creeps like this one that she encountered. Real risk is out there. Will you still wear short skirts?

Love your blog! :) And your sense of style!♥

Thank you May Elena ;)

Who says you can’t wear a black shirt underneath a sundress?

If you are going to listen to every single person who is commenting about your looks, how you dress up, or how you handle yourself, you’re bound to lose your real identity.

This is a product review for Mememe Seventh Heaven Enriched Moisturising Face Base, a non-greasy makeup base or simply, a moisturizer for the face (if you are like me who doesn’t wear makeup everyday). One thing that made me try this is the good reviews I’ve been reading about this product. This one’s from Mememe - a UK brand that can only be bought from online shops if you’re like me who currently lives in the Philippines. I got this from one of of those popular online stores for makeup for about a little over Php1,000 or roughly $23-25 USD.

The Scent: Personally, I love the scent but I would say that it might not be something that everyone would love. I mean, we all have different tastes in everything but just to set proper expectations for everyone, I can say that it smells good but people who are not in to citrus-y scents might not be too in love with it. Also, it’s not a perfume so don’t expect the scent to stay for long! The scent gives off a hint of mandarin and orange, with a shy touch of vanilla going on. For me, it smells nice and refreshing, but only for a short moment.

The Product: The product is light, it’s not tinted, it’s doesn’t have any shimmer or glitters which is good. I like the consistency, just a pea-sized amount will cover pretty much your entire face. However, I find that when it’s humid, it did make my face sweat. I also noticed that when I apply this under any regular face powder or BB cream (I’m a fan of BB creams), it helps it stay put for hours. It’s safe to say that this really gives your powder or foundation a good lasting power.

Application: Personally, I use a Q-tip or cotton buds when getting a pea-sized amount for the whole face and I do not double-dip so that it wouldn’t accumulate bacteria in the tub.

Will I Buy it Again? It’s nice to try it because of the scent and its ability to hold your powder or liquid makeup for hours but for someone like me who doesn’t wear makeup too often, I would say that I might not repurchase. For one, it contains not one, not two, not three, not four, but five… FIVE types of PARABENS which I am absolutely not a fan of. In the box, it says it contains METHYLPARABEN, ETHYLPARABEN, BUTYLPARABEN, PROPYLPARABEN, ISOBUTYLPARABEN and many other chemicals I haven’t heard of or read about before. For those who aren’t aware yet, studies link parabens as a possible cause of cancer. 

The Verdict: It’s a good face primer but for health-conscious individuals, it may not be your best bet because of the parabens. There are other products out there that will probably do more good than harm. Overall, its really just the scent that makes this product really buzz-worthy but other than that, I choose not to load up my skin with harmful chemicals.

Sometimes we expect a person to make us feel better, to make us feel complete. Truth is, it’s all up to us, how we feel or perceive. It’s all up to us to CHOOSE how we see things. Nobody can be responsible for your happiness but yourself. Choose to be happy and fight the dragging negative feelings.

How do you know you’re in the right relationship with a person? It’s when he or she brings you closer to your faith and the relationship as a whole makes you feel contented.

Like, almost nothing in this whole ensemble is new, nor was this outfit was planned at all. Everything was impromptu that day and every single piece in this ensemble were already just sitting somewhere in my closet until I had to dress up for that evening. I learned a valuable lesson with this ensemble and some of them are:

1) Keep satin blouses because they’re very versatile. They can be worn for casual and semi-casual events.

2) Cardigans are great pieces to keep around. They rarely ever go out of style.

3) Skirts + Booties = FUN.

Have a great day!

Places to see, things to do… but I would rather stay home than travel the world than experience it all without YOU.

I have at least two or three yellow shirt dresses like this one and I don’t even know why I do. There’s something about yellow that makes a day less gloomy even if you’re in the darkest of moods. Light, young and vibrant - these are what yellow is to me.
