The Statement Sleeves Trend

From ruffles to bell shape sleeves, we noticed that the statement sleeves are all the rage this spring and summer 2017. These exaggerated sleeves will not only make you look fab but it will also make your look more fun and playful. This is just one of this season’s biggest trends and the perfect wardrobe piece to add drama in your outfit. If you have seen the spring and summer 2017 catwalks, they featured huge ruffles on the runway. But the high street versions are much more wearable, providing a practical way to wear the trend.  So how did I style this eye-catching sleeve?

In this outfit I’m wearing a light blue off-the-shoulder top with ruffled sleeves. I paired it with my old jeans and white slip on sneakers for comfortable and casual look. To make it more chic and street-style look, I decided to add a red scarf on my neck.

How To Pull-Off Black Wardrobe Staples this Summer Season

Summer is the hottest month of the year. We see people wearing bright colors and the darkest shade in the book gets a negative reputation for not being summer-appropriate. But hey girls, black outfits in summer can actually be pretty badass! The trick to wearing black in the hottest month of the year depends on the fabric you choose and the style of your clothes. If you love black outfits like me, here are some of the tips on how to pull-off black wardrobe staples in summer.

 

The Shoe Style Everyone is Wearing in 2017

Have you heard about the latest  mule shoe trend that everyone is wearing this year?  What is “mule”? Mule comes from French word. It is a style of shoe that is backless and often closed-toed. Mules can be any heel height – from flat to high. In the early 1950s, Marilyn Monroe popularized the shoe. Mules experienced some popularity in the 1950s and early 1960s, and were seen in the 1970s and early 1980s but then re-emerged in the late 1990s, especially in its open-toed form (the “slide”), and began to dominate the shoe market for women in 2016 and 2017. In this blog, I want to share to you a black handmade mules from Tutum Shop. Why I love mules? For one, they’re convenient. In a world where women’s shoes often have complicated straps and buckles and confusing ways to put them on, it’s a comfort to know that there’s a type of shoe you can just slide into!

How to wear flat mules?

In this outfit, I paired mules with pleated cullotes that hit just below the knee to show the shoes. Pairing them with a plain black blouse from Penshoppe. If you decide on a shirt or blouse, then tucking in is most appropriate way.  To have a touch of retro, I decided to wear the 2017’s trendy Tinted Aviator Sunnies in cobalt shade. I got this from Aggy.Ph onlineshop owned by a filipina fashion blogger Aggy Nuguid.

Re-wear and Style

“Nothing is more fun than putting together an outfit. There’s just something about it that gives every woman that little boost of confidence.”

I re-wear most of my clothes in a different and stylish way.  In this outfit I layered my gray cami dress over my peach off shoulder dress. When you layer your clothes, just make sure that the fabric won’t make you feel hot especially this summer season. I wore this off shoulder dress last month during our holiday getaway at Dakak Park and Beach Resort. (click to see my Dakak post) I paired it with a cute summer hat and sunnies for a summer look. 20170219_085258

Every woman’s wardrobe is part active and part inactive. We have clothes that we wear, unworn and waiting to re wear. These worn clothes lie dormant, ever hopeful that they will one day adorn our bodies again. To make my clothes not a waste in my valuable wardrobe space, I re wear it in a new and stylish way. So how did I style this off shoulder dress in a new way?

I layered a cami dress over my off shoulder dress. Instead of wearing a summer hat and slippers, I wore a grey turban and a chamber grey bow flat shoes. I bought this flat shoes more than a year ago at SM Parisian and I’m still wearing it this year. This is the importance why we should invest in a quality shoes with a trusted brand.

BYS Cosmetics: “For the Perfect #NoFilter Selfie”

Featuring My Favorite Makeup Brand!

Processed with VSCO with c4 preset

Product flatlay by @iamfatima24

Hi to all ladies out there! Are you a makeup junkie like me? Today, I would like to share to you my all-time favorite makeup brand. Because I am a Kindergarten Teacher, I usually wear a light makeup to create a friendly look. Most of my workmates and friends have been asking me “What brand is that? Where did you buy that product?” So now I’m going to give a detailed answer to those simple questions. BYS Products designed and developed in Melbourne, Australia and exported world-wide with sophisticated black styling. BYS is continuing to expand into many countries around the world and this product is now in Philippines and was featured in Preview Magazine. As a satisfied user of this brand, I would like to share to you some of my favorite BYS products.

1. BYS Matte Crème Foundation in 01 Natural Beige (10g)
I chose this natural beige because it’s perfect for my skin color and it has a matte finish. It looks natural, fresh and smooth when applied to my face. This crème foundation is perfect for those who have oily and sensitive skin. It last longer on my skin and it’s very easy to apply. Apply this foundation with wet sponge and blend it to your face. It covers not only those dark spots but also your acne and pimples.

2. BYS Contour Trio in 01 Sassy (8g)
This contour trio is also one of my favorites because it’s 3 in 1! It contains contour powder, highlighter and a blush for your cheeks. I chose powder contour to give me fresh and matte look. What I really like about this contour trio is that, I can wear it every day because it’s so easy to apply and it gives a smooth effect when you blend it. The blush also won’t make you look like a clown and it makes your face slimmer.

3. BYS Brow Gel in 01 Brunette
I discovered this brow gel from my workmate who is also a satisfied user of this brand. My biggest makeup problem before was how to create a perfect natural eyebrows. My workmate recommended this brow gel and I am so thankful!. To some girls eyebrows may not be a big issue but for me it is really one of the most important parts of a woman’s face. I’m a believer of that popular Filipino tagline “Eyebrow is Life” because for me beautiful eyebrows add confidence and beauty. This brow gel will help you create natural brows. It’s designed to keep brows in check and tame unruly or out of place hairs.

4. Nude BYS On-The-Go Palette

Don’t you just love it when your favorite makeup comes in travel sizes? The BYS On-The-Go Nude Palette has six of the most used shades in the original set to help you create your best smoky eyes even while in transit! This palette comes in six shades: cream, eight, fancy, runway, coco and model. I love this nude palette because you can use it if you want a light make up to look fresh on daytime and you can create smoky eyes if you want dark make-up. I used the cream, eight, fancy and runway shades during week days to create fresh look. I also used coco and model shades to create smoky eyes and fierce look if there are occasions on weekends. The packaging looks elegant and durable.

5. BYS Make-Up Setting Spray in Matte Finish (45ml)
The finish touch to your beauty regime! BYS Makeup Setting Spray is a weightless mist that sets makeup all day while providing a gorgeous shine free finish. I usually used this if I attend some occasions to make my makeup last longer. I like this because there’s no need for me to retouch my makeup. One of my workmate asked me what brand I used because the makeup stayed from morning ‘til afternoon without retouching it with a powder.
