Perfect Off-Duty Accessory: Fluffy Pearl Slides

                              Sick of athleisure or wearing your boyfriend jeans and a pair of Birks? I think the trend of furry slides is still at its peak and this is my take on those furry slides since I'm too chic and girly to sport them.

   Presenting my very own Pearl and Crystal adorned fluffy slides.

                           Yes, this is just like Puma Fenty slides but I just accessorized it in a classic way to match personality.  Going out with plain havaianas is really difficult for me since I think that it lacks ooommph for me to be able to look presentable enough so I make it a point that I embellish my Havs or just like this black fluffy slides. 

                               Lately, I've been enjoying flats with so much embellishment on it. It really makes me unleash the creativity that I have always wanted to share to everyone moreover, this is the last pair of flats/slides that I will have to embellish using large faux pearls. I've been addicted to this since January so I have to move on and search for other projects that I can work on.

                              Thanks for taking some of your time to check on my projects. I will surely use these in my future OOTD's.


Will post pictures real soon.

Taking a Curvy Girl's Halloween Costume Up a Notch


                               Looking for a wide array of rtw designs for plus size women here in the Philippines is such a challenge, what more if you are looking for Halloween costumes? Sometimes it discourages us from attending halloween parties because even if you try to check out malls, you will definitely end up with a failed mission unless you opt to order online with taking the risk whether it fits well on you or having it altered once you receive it.  Yup, it's kinda costly and we must all admit that not everyone has a credit card for online shopping and could afford spending that much for a costume. Personally, I made my sister's costume because I wanted it to be unique and personalized. Allowing her to wear just another Wonder woman , Tinker Bell or any easy to rush costume is just sad and boring. Anyway whatever we choose would take time, money and effort to accomplish. I might as well make a good one for her right?

                                The FIRST thing you have to think about is the concept of the costume. You should wear/choose someone whom you feel has a connection with you. Knowing my sister, Captain America is really her Avenger crush so I took the challenge of making a female version of it. Last year, we thought of Harley Quinn but it was too overrated and mainstream. No offense but Suicide Squad's psychotic and crush material evil villain took the cosplay world by storm and she was present in every costume/cosplay parties so we have to pass for now. So as we have researched, the female version of Captain America is American Dream.

                                 SECOND, plan how you like the costume to look like. Plus size women could choose a dress designs that compliments their curves well and as for my sister who is pear shaped, we worked on a mini skater and bustier dress. Aside from that, we have to look for below the knee boots so we can apply acrylic paint on it. As for the accessories, my sister did a handmade shield and I adorned the dress with 3d spray-painted handmade stars particularly on the bossom and the skirt area. A detailed research should be made for you to assess how much money and time it costs.

                                THIRD,  Execute the project plan.You can start searching for hair style ideas and make up ideas. We fell in love with the big curls with a clean and creative semi-glamorous make up to match it with. Look for professionals or you can give creative make-up a try if you lack financial resources.

                                FOURTH, fitting and putting all the ideas together. Check if there is still room for improvements and adjustments.

                                LAST but not the LEAST enjoy the party and your costume. :)

                                Personalizing American Dream is a great spin for Captain America costume. The more that you feel connected to the character that you have chosen then there could be greater chances for you to enjoy and feel comfortable with the look that you have made for yourself. You still have time to prepare for the upcoming halloween party and make it an exciting and a memorable experience.

Curvy Statement: There's Nothing Wrong in Liking What You See in Front of the Mirror

                                 We always find ourselves admiring Selena Gomez or Ashley Graham because they're pretty, confident and can rock whatever their outfits are. Have you ever tried facing the mirror and checked how you felt about the way you look?  This is not another plus size empowerment post instead, this is a message to all women of different age, size and race.

                                 Lately, we have apps like Instagram and Snapchat that would encourage us to take a selfie and post it on our social media accounts and heaven knows what different reactions we might have among the people who follow us. If you are able to look in front of the mirror without feeling bad or disgusted, I would like to congratulate you for achieving the self love that you deserve. Okay, before any negative reaction would be raised I have a very simple point about loving yourself. It doesn't equate to vanity, narcissism or over-confidence. It will always be a case to case basis but then all of us are unique and I believe none of us were made to be perfect. Whatever your flaws are, you can always embrace and plan to better ourselves if needed but it doesn't mean that you have to get rid of who you really are.

                               We all have different ways on how to express ourselves and if one day someone gives you a negative comment on how ugly or being over confident with your looks to the point of asking you to stop posting pictures or etc. Always remember that they are entitled to their own opinion but it doesn't have to MATTER. There will always be someone who would encourage you not to but don't give them the authority to dictate their standard of what's acceptable and what's not. Feeling good about one's self is never bad. If shamers would start their negativity on you then it's a problem that they have to fix about themselves. Never take it personally. Continue the positivity that you have within you. Whether you like wearing  make up or not, putting up a flattering dress that would expose your assets. Flip your hair because that's absolutely fine. Don't mind people who keeps on judging girls who indulges in simple joys. There are various reasons why we love putting make-up on or simply strutting our own fashion statements. It shouldn't affect their ego but if it does, it's just a reflection of their personal problems. Let's just continue with our journey to self love. It won't be easy but I hope, we would appreciate every ups and downs  we experience in life. Expressing how comfortable we are with ourselves should be fun but also set limits and hopefully we would be aware of it. Let go of their negativity because you have women like me /us who will support you all the way. The most important skill we have to develop is the ability to  listen to what our heart likes to tell us. Listen carefully and you will eventually find your way. :)

Motto : Get Up, Dress Up and Love Life to the Fullest .

Thanks for reading  ❤️❤️❤️

                              Attention seeking pair of  earrings became a major fashion statement this season and I am glad that my favorite accessory in my late teens made a come back.

Statement Jewelry: Pearl Adorned Slides , a creation on my 3rd decade

                             The world's oldest gem made its way back into the fashion scene as it invades the runway in the past few years. Known for its class and prestige, pearls have been one of women's favorite jewelries since it represents good taste. It is well justified why women choose to wear pearls on special occassions. Cleopatra and other royalties were known to wear pearls because it is rare and a precious treasure. Thanks to Coco Chanel, she made pearls more accessible to women. Her collaboration with jewelers paved the way for us to be able to appreciate how we can accessorize our outfits in a modernized way.  Up until now, a lot of designers are using pearls in their clothing and jewelry designs. Coco Chanel is my inspiration when it comes to my pearl jewelry designs since she was able to revive women's hunger for pearl accessories. Gone are the days when pearls are identified to be used only by classy elderly women in the society. It might be one of the oldest gems in the world but it's precious beauty remains the same.

                             As I enter my third decade in life, I am very proud to share that I was able to combine two of my most loved items to work on, which are shoes and jewelry. Cinderella already has  her well-known glass slippers so I made Ariel a footwear once she sets foot on land. It will be easier for her to use flat mules since she isn't an expert in walking in heels yet. :)

Pearl Adorned Slides

                                 The pearl and crystal embellishment are purely handmade. This design was planned  and made by yours truly. Furthermore, this project was not imitated from another designer piece. Last January 2017,I already planned the execution of this embellishment project. If only I had the luxury of time then I must have finished everything during summer but unfortunately, I couldn't and some resources where really not accessible here in Baguio City.

P.S The gold mule was purchased from H & M.

My curvy fashion statement wearing my very own pearl adorned slides and pearl cuff on my 30th birthday.

                                      My project didn't stop on my metallic slides. I also experimented on fur slides and the pearls and crystals really added some class into it. Comfortability + Style makes it a good fashion accessory. Now, I didn't have to choose between comfortability and style. I can have the best of both worlds.

                                 In my 30 years of existence, I never thought I would love jewelries this much and the great Coco Chanel was one of my greatest inspirations to work on unique pieces. I firmly believe that a classic outfit is lifeless without something that adds sparkle into it.

                                     I'm excited to wear my pearl slides real soon. If you want to inquire about this creation, contact me through

Statement Jewelries: Tassel Dazzle

                               Fashion girls have a new standard in accessorizing and it adds a playful, happy and charming touch to any outfit that they match it with. Tassel earrings are almost everywhere and fashionistas are so loving it! Check Pinterest and Instagram and chicas are sporting it everywhere. Before, we usually find tassels in curtains, tables and knitted goods but now it is found in high-end fashion brands like Oscar Dela Renta, Saint Laurent and many more. It has been a favorite fashion accessory in the runway this and last season. No wonder, celebrities and influencers have been going gaga over this simple and festive accessory.

                                  Thread tassels are the most basic design and we usually see it being sold online. As an artist, I would like to share my own version of tassel earrings. It would be more fun to add glitz and a bit of glam into it. My accessory collection wouldn't be complete without gems and crystals and I believe adding more life into those stacks of thread would make it look lovelier and glamorous. 

                               Black and Gold,  one of best regal color combinations and it makes the accessory flexible to any type of outfit that you choose to match it with. The different crystals used in the cap of the tassels gave the right sparkle to rock the night away with your cocktail/party dress or jumpsuit.

                               Wearing tassels would make you feel like there's always a celebration somewhere. In addition to that,  the crystals and metal adornments in it would complete your posh outfit. Try these with off-shoulder tops, boho rompers, colorful dresses and this particular tassel earrings design would definitely complement it well.

Thank you for spending some time in checking my latest project. I am super excited to share my next creation that I have been working on for weeks already.

The designs and photos are all mine.

Curvy Girl's Favorites: MAC Matte Lipsticks

                                Whether it's for a formal event or an off-duty look, we know that lippie colors have a huge impact on our entire get-up. Make-up junkies have various options to choose from and a lot of youtube reviews are already helpful when it comes to choosing the shade that we like most. Matte finish is still still my personal  favorite because of it's longevity and how it balances the shape of my lips and wearing bold shades. I know the agony of choosing from a hundred lippie shades and when you don't know what to buy at that moment, you might end up wasting your money and facing the dilemma of choosing between 2 colors that are almost the same. Coming from different collections and seasons, I have learned my top picks through time and it means almost six years. I chose to stick with mac because of its quality particularly their realistic ads of their lipstick shades and I wasn't disappointed,  the tried and tested long lasting effects, and they are safe to use (low lead content). With that being said, here are my favorites;


                              Local and International celebrities were spotted wearing this MAC all-time fave red retro matte lippie and I can swear on its magic when you try to apply it to your lips. It has a fairy-godmother instant effect once you wear this shade.  According to Vogue UK, Ruby Woo is included in the Best Red Lipsticks of 2017. This has been a favorite because of the bold statement it gives and its impressive versatility because it looks good on every skin tone. Morenas don't need to worry on this red lippie because it will surely look good on them.



                                 My second favorite red lippie is this deep red retro-matte liquid lipstick. If you want to add a touch of sexiness and glam into your entire look then go for this shade. According to This red lippie shade perseveres and a must when you're planning to dance the night away.


                                 My third lippie of choice is still under the first batch of retro matte liquid lipstick launched by MAC. This time, it is berry shaded and vampy. I promise you this lippie has amazed my friends who have seen it for its lovely bold plum shade. It will emphasize the fierce sexiness of your lips. Carolina Herrera, a designer known for her signature elegance used MAC raspberry shade OH LADY on the runway. According to Laura Regensdorf of Vogue Magazine this matte berry lippie feels fresh and I couldn't agree more.


                                 This lippie is from the first retro matte lipstick of collection of mac and I was in awe when I tried this on for the very first time. It has the perfect touch of pink and plum. If you want to be on the sweeter side and still wear something plumish then this is the right shade to put on. Plum can often gives you a vampy touch on your make up. On the contary, this shade has its miracles for it can be used for a laid-back sweet look.


                                  Coral shade lipsticks are best used during summer time and my first favorite lippie shade is under the coral shade. This is a combination of red and orange and i love how it lightens up my face when I use it. Olive skinned girls would also look good on this matte coral shade so when it comes to versatility, then you can rely on this red - orange lippie. featured Lady danger in the best red lipsticks of all time and they said it looks amazing on every skin tone.


                                  The perfect shade that I've chosen for a sexy vampy look is DIVA. This is close to the marsala shade and once you wear it, you will feel that you're a part of the Vampire Diaries cast. In an interview with elle magazine, Huda Kattan a beauty influencer recommends the use of MAC DIVA for an ultimate sexy red lip.


                                 I'm not a huge fan of nudes because I had a hard time in looking for a shade that suits me well. This peachy pink matte shade looks good on my no-make-up look and so far, I am satisfied. Kinda Sexy was featured in Elle Singapore as one of the nude lippies of their choice.

                               My top 6 favorites are proven to have long-lasting effects. It looks great on any kind of outfit. Mattes are known to be drying on the lips so you have to keep in mind that you have a responsibility to take care of your lips when you love using mattes. Scrub and moisturize your lips regularly and for the liquid lipsticks. You have to use a lip balm or lip moisturizer before you apply the matte lippie. Truth be told, I achieved good results just as long as I take care of my lips. When it comes to the brand, yes I know that it can be expensive compared to other drugstore brands but when it comes to the pigment quality MAC is still better even though some bloggers have mentioned that they have cheaper dupes. I have always believed that you can save if you wanted to get good quality of products. This is based on my experience and I am not imposing that these are ONLY the best. I have heard of good reviews from Sephora, Tom Ford and other high end brands but I still have to try them on. You can check the nearest MAC store near you and try the mentioned shades personally. It is always best to search and check before rushing to the store. You don't like to max out your CC's right?
