Sunday Outfit: Nautical

Like many fashion experts say, stripes will be a big trend this year, especially this summer. I’ve always loved this print even if most people say that stripes will make me look bigger. But I’ve learned through the years that curvy people can wear stripes, we just have to wear thinner stripes so it will be flattering.

It was love at first sight the first time I saw this nautical dress. No questions asked, I bought it from the store. I love the simple and summery feel of it. I thought it’s a bit short but I still want to wear it. I am very conscious with the color of my knees, pero keber na lang, I really really want this dress. I think it’s very Madewell.

Pleasant Suprise!

Guess what I got in the mail today?

Ponds sent me free samples of Pond’s Age Miracle because I participated in their “Love Yourself” promo. I’ve never been this happy to receive something from the mail! This is a pure surprise! I love this cream because it’s a great day moisturizer. Like I said in this post, I use this as part of my sun protection.

Pleasant surprises are the best!

It came in a red envelope.

Products I love!

I am no beauty blogger but I want to share to women, especially MOMS, the products I love that you might want to try. Every woman has issues with their skin and hair, even celebrities do. For us ordinary people, who can’t afford celebrity treatments there are a lot of products that can help use achieve much better skin and hair. Best thing about these products is that they are super affordable.

It’s called beauty for less!

I do have occasional breakouts before my period but at least these products help my skin to have lesser pimples, maybe one or 2 pimples a month. I also don’t have the perfect hair, my hair is actually frizzy if I don’t use these products. When I say frizzy, I mean sabog ang hair ko kung ordinary shampoo and conditioner ang ginagamit ko. I am not gifted when it comes to hair but I am blessed with good facial skin. I have skin issues in my arms too because I live in Baguio. I get a few bumps in my arms when it gets really cold. It’s like goose bumps, but their semi permanent. I can’t get rid of them totally. I was able to get rid of them once using St. Ives Clear Pore Body Wash but that body wash is not sold anymore, so they came back.

I don’t use make up or go to the spa for treatments. My sister told me to never use make up because make-up will make me mature. I’m baby face daw kasi. Chos! When I go to the salon I only go there to get a haircut. So I just buy products that I can use at home at the same time are inexpensive.

These products keep my skin clearer and my hair more manageable. 

I have a combination skin on my face. That means that my t-zone is oily and my cheeks are dry. For my face I just use Ponds facial wash and I moisturize with St. Ives Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer because my cheeks get flaky. That means they’re very dry. I love this moisturizer because it has collagen. I have used this moisturizer in my tummy to minimize stretch marks after I gave birth and it really worked. This product keeps my facial skin supple all day long. I use these two, twice a day, in the morning and before bed.

This facial wash really works in minimizing black heads. This is only around P165 and I have been using this for 3 months now. It’s so sulit! (Available at supermarkets and drug stores.)

This moisturizer is P235 a jar. It’s really big so I use for a long time. I think I use one jar for 3-5 months. Another sulit product! (Available at Watson’s and Tiong San)
