Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and if you are planning to buy lingerie your girl, here are some practical advice.

lingerie 1

* Take a sneak peek in her underwear drawer so you’ll have an idea what size she wears. You will only make her sad if you buy lingerie two sizes too small or two sizes too large.

lingerie 3

* If taking a peek is not possible try this to get the cup size…

Lemons=A
Orange=B
Grapefruit=C
Melons=D

Don’t laugh! It may sound silly, but it works.

* Don’t just buy a lingerie because you like it or its sexy. Consider her personality. If you’ve never seen her wear the more daring ones, don’t buy them. These sure are exciting, but they can be too much for your girl.

lingerie 2

* Don’t forget to wrap it! After all the troubles you’ve gone through in choosing the perfect lingerie, she’ll appreciate it more if you wrap it. Be creative. You can use a fancy tissue paper to wrap the lingerie, then put it in a pretty box or you can put it in a beautiful paper bag lined with shredded paper. Remember that most women think the extra steps you took in wrapping it means the gift is very special.

With just a few hours before the year draws to a close, many are wondering what would be hot and what won’t be in in 2014. So here, I did some research on what clothes are going to click for spring and summer.

Geometric designs, Cabana stripes, Cropped pants and A-line dresses paired with numerous jewellery items will very much in this 2014. Mod World as some people call it, this particular type of trend is believed to be coming back from the 1960s.

geometric 2

geometric 3

Metallic materials paired with detailed embroidery will also make the trends this spring and summer so make sure you make way for not just Indian designs but plenty of Moroccan and North African influences as well. We are expecting handwork and plenty of diverse vibrant colours, a wide variety of different materials such as jacquard, lame and sequins and tribal patterns, prints and numerous dye techniques.

metallic 3

Another popular trend that you can expect so see next year is glam grunge. Popularized in the 1990s, 2014′s style will be softer in appearance when it comes to designs so you can look forward to tamer leopard prints, soft camouflage, florals and plaid.

glam grunge 3

The provincial picnic trend is still in. This time though, it will be based entirely on nautical themes which incorporate a host of floral patterns not to mention stripes, soft plaids and much more. On the other hand, red is certainly a color which will be in next year as well as vibrant orchid so expect purple and pink to make the trends as well. Other colors that will also be seen more are cool minty blue, cotton voile, banana yellow and linen white.

Girly outfits never go out of style so you can still see jackets and socks, cherries fruit prints, cute cat prints and more cutesy prints. Other patterns you can expect are toile and A line skirts, shirtdress, jumpsuits, ruffled dresses and complete skirt outfits with an eyelet edging.

The Safari designs will also make a comeback. For the next twelve months these patterns will be hot so you can expect plenty of fashion houses launching their own exclusive collections of jungle type wear. Pattern you should look out for are shorts, sharp jackets and sharp safari suits.

I was so excited when my Secret Santa Glamourbox arrived on my doorstep. This is my first subscription so let’s see what’s inside.

photo(2)Woohoo!

photo(6)Holika Holika Face 2 Change CC Cream in Pink Beige. Full size 50 ml, Php 855.

I’ve never tried using a CC cream and I was curious on what makes it better than a BB cream. I tried it on my face and wow it smells good! My skin feels so soft and it’s not sticky at all.

photo(5)Holika Holika Pure Mellow Multi Puff. Full size 25g, Php 265.

I’m not really a makeup person so this goes to my daughter. It’s soft and I just love the color. It certainly looks like a marshmallow!

photo(7)Avon Fragrance in Only Imagine. Full size 50ml, Php 1500.

Anyone who knows me knows that I love flowers and I love fruits. So this fragrance by Avon (sparkling green apple touched with the surprise of violet blossom and soft musk) is a perfect combo for me. My Secret Santa definitely knows me. ;)

photo(4)The Cream Factory Bath Creams. Full size 768 ml, Php 699.

Milk and almond not only do the body good, but the skin as well. Goat’s milk makes skin feel soft, plus, the antioxidants in almonds makes skin velvety smooth and healthy. Will definitely buy a full sized bottle!

photo(8)Zen Zest Kitchen Fragrance in Choco Cappuccino. Full size 250 ml, Php 250.

Waking up to the smell of coffee already puts a smile on your still sleepy face. What more with the delicious aroma of chocolate and cappuccino? Heavenly!

photo(3)Paula’s Choice Skincare Samples and a  Strip It! coupon.

Treats to pamper your skin. These came in as freebies. I have not tried them yet and hopefully tonight, I won’t forget to use them. If my skin likes them, I’d definitely buy the full sizes.

photo(9)Fabulosa Necklace

Another bonus and a pretty one at that! I’m not fond of jewelries but this is something I can wear everyday. Like it? Visit their Facebook page. :)

I love everything that’s inside the box and that’s more or less Php3000 in all. Thank you Secret Santa! Can’t wait for my next Glamourbox. If you like any or all of the products featured in this post, you may want to visit and like their Facebook page  or follow them on Twitter.

Twelve days before Christmas and I’m done shopping… except for myself. I just realized that after several trips to the mall and shopping online, I haven’t bought anything for myself. So, before I get too busy wrapping all the gifts I bought for everyone and before I start preparing for Christmas, I browsed online for clothes. I visited my favorite online store and browsed their catalog. I found this really gorgeous Sweet Flouncing Chiffon T-shirt.

sweet flouncing chiffon shirt

I’m not the type who fancies laces and stuff; I like simple shirts that I can wear everyday without looking too dressy. This one is just right. It’s available in two colors: black and white, but I prefer the white. The fabric used is chiffon so I’m sure it’s pretty comfortable to wear. For US$35.99? I’d say it’s a steal. And like I always say when you shop at Persunmall, you get a free gift on orders $30 and above. This shirt is definitely going in my shopping cart. Now it’s time to look for a pair of pants to complete my holiday getup.
