Backless Dresses for Special Occasions

I love dresses. I think I’ve said this many times on this blog. While I prefer wearing dresses on casual days, special occasions require a formal dress which is sometimes quite hard to find. Style, fit, and color are just some of the factors one has to consider when choosing a formal dress.

One of the dresses that I find elegant and sensual, at the same time, to wear to a formal occasion is a backless dress. A girl wearing a backless dress can’t help but feel confident and sexy at the same time.

Frugal Find: Rubi Shoes, 3 for P1,200

I got introduced to Rubi Shoes through Cotton On. They carry Rubi shoes in their stores and after buying two pairs (camel wedges and white sandals) in 2013 –which are both still alive today –I made it a point to check out Cotton On occasionally for new shoe designs. (My fave branches are Cotton On Rob Magnolia and Rob Manila.)

When I found out Rubi Shoes has stand-alone stores in Rob Magnolia and Alabang Town Center (ATC), I’d visit them whenever I’d make a trip to those malls.

Frugal Find: Himalaya Herbals Lip Balm

My lips usually get extra dry at this time of the year and so when I found out I didn’t have a lip balm in my personal care stash, I immediately bought one at Watsons SM Manila. While reading and comparing labels, I decided to experiment on this brand that sounded new to me — Himalaya Herbals Lip Balm. Priced at just P59, it’s the cheapest lip balm there (along with the one under the Watsons brand that comes in fruit flavors).

This particular lip balm is a product of India and the company behind it has been in existence since 1930. It has carrot seed oil (a natural sunscreen) and wheat germ oil that’s rich in Vitamin E. The product claims to nourish, soften, and prevents chapping of lips.

Impromptu Date with My Girls

Last night was fun. My sisters Nyam and Jodie invited me out of the blue to go malling. They also instructed me to bring our Mame along. The mall of choice was SM Manila due to its close proximity to our place. We met at our usual meeting place — in front of Kanzhu restaurant.

Mame and I met up with Nyam first. While waiting for Jodie to arrive, we people-watched and chatted to our heart’s content. Our topics of conversation went from money and shopping to Hollywood and musical instruments. Are you familiar with electronic drums? I’m not. I only know about the normal drums drummers strike to produce a selection of sounds. But if you’re curious, see MF and find out about them. Anyway, we only stopped chatting when we saw Jodie walking towards us.

Christmas Gift Ideas for Music Lovers

If you have a music lover friend or family member, what would you get him/her for Christmas? I can only think of a few things. Why not a personalized CD with a compilation of his/her favorite songs? How about a ticket to a local concert? Or better yet, a gift certificate to some record bar or online music store?

If he/she’s talented and can play a musical instrument, why not gift him/her with a badass guitar from the Gibson launch? There are actually more fun stuff to give them, you just have to think a bit.
