Fashion Find: Big Clutches

I once read from a fashion mag that dresses are best paired with clutches. After seeing a lot of stylish women donning dresses and with clutches on their hands, I started to accept this fashion combination. This becomes more relevant when you’re attending an event and you suddenly decide to wear a cocktail dress (for a party) or an evening gown (for a formal gathering). Clutches are your perfect accessory there.

While a lot of girls prefer small clutches, I like big clutches more than them. I find big clutches stylish, fun and functional. I remember my first big clutch was a red one from Mango. It was plain and with very simple design. I still loved it, though, because of its color. It would instantly brighten my outfit and keep my essential stuff safe and secure when I would be out in malls or to some casual events.

Online Sellers of Handcrafted Stuff

I wish to put up my own business in the future. I don’t have the capital now that’s why I want to pursue this dream a little later in my life. For now, I’ll just enjoy the feeling of being mighty proud of my two friends who have recently opened their online business. They sell handcrafted stuff. My friend Adel makes pretty headbands for little girls while my superfriend Nice makes bags, cellphone cases, purses and organizers for everyone who needs them.

Handmade products are special because they are made with burning passion and love. If you’re interested in what my two friends sell, head on over to their FB pages. Just type in “Peekabow” for Adel’s and “Nicely Crafted” for Nice’s on the search bar. If you’re buying in bulk to give away to your friends, they might just offer you wholesale prices on your order. Don’t forget to tell them that you found them through me!

Finances, Finances

I dunno why but I always get broke a few weeks before the bonus-giving time at work. Is it because subconsciously I could smell the money coming my way and I know a little overspending before its arrival won’t hurt? I know it’s not a good practice, financially speaking, but I just can’t help it.

This is especially true when I’m in front of the PC looking at things that could easily land on my lap with just a few mouse clicks. From bags and clothes, I’m now into fine jewelry and I’m seriously thinking about those men’s wedding rings at at this very moment. No, I don’t plan to replace the hubby’s wedding ring with a new one. He’s a very simple guy and I just thought the simplicity and character of one of the wedding rings I saw from the site was very him. I can’t buy it because it costs an arm and a leg, anyway. Haha.

Shopping for Bags Online

Instagram (or IG for short) being a social media site is now a venue for online sellers to reach out to a bigger market. I have actually found an online seller there selling stylish but affordable bags.

my three new bags

I followed @iamshopaholicmom at IG and bought three new bags from her ( a tote bag, a satchel and a drawstring). I liked how easy it was to deal with her and the shipping was faster than I had expected. It was also love at first sight when I first laid my eyes on the bags. The quality was superb and the material used (high quality synthetic leather) looked expensive-looking.

Review: My Zalora Online Shopping Experience

Zalora is a local online shopping site. I had the chance of trying out its services last Monday and would like to share my shopping experience with you today. To be honest, what made me excited to shop at Zalora was the P500 voucher I received after signing up for their online newsletter. (I think I saw a link somewhere, got curious and suddenly decided to find out what the fuzz was all about.)

Zalora site’s screenshot

Zalora has a decent site. It looks a bit crowded but is quite navigable and user-friendly. There are categories provided to guide you when shopping. But first, to be able to shop, I registered an account with them. Then I started browsing through my catalog of choice. I ended up getting a maternity dress and a pair of flats to go with it.

Online Shopping for Maternity Clothes

Last time I checked, I already gained 10 lbs since I found out I was pregnant. Wow, that (and the already noticeable bump!) should explain why I feel unusually heavy these days. Actually, a lot of my pre-pregnancy clothes don’t fit me anymore. Bummer.

something comfy for the preggy me

Meanwhile, I have started wearing dresses in the office this week and I liked it. Even I, myself, was surprised. I initially planned to avoid wearing maternity dresses all throughout my pregnancy but it seems I had a major shift in perspective.
