Pregnant OOTD Series: #LADYBOSS


Pregnant OOTD Series.
As a person who's into style, honestly - I can't imagine myself wearing all those typical or normal maternity dresses/outfit I'm seeing at the clothing department! There are options I can see online but sometimes they are way too pricey for me. In order to be creative with my resources, I think it is wise to make use of my basic-wear and transform it into pregnant's chic yet comfy outfits. Remember ladies that from time to time, I'll post some of my favorite pregnant style without breaking the bank therefore watch out for my very own 'Pregnant OOTD Series'.


A sheer blouse.
Ideally, loose dresses are highly recommended for the blessed pregnant women. Although it is in fact a comfortable outfit style, I have to admit that I only have kept (or shopped) a few of it. In order to be creative and wise in spending, I have to make use of garments that are already available. I got that loose sheer blouse from Forever 21. It has a V neck-line (enough length to show off your cleavage if you have one! no justice for me though. lol) If you are a working mom, the probability of owning a sheer blouse just like this one - is high. haha! When you think you need a maternity dress to work, think again lovelies...don't give up on your office style pieces so easily.


High waist body con skirt.
For me, this is like my favorite garment for my baby bump! I love showing off my huge baby bump around so this is my way of doing it. I also got the 'feeling' (the kind like the petty ones we have) that if I'm wearing a loose garment, it will just appear as extra tummy fats. I prefer to emphasize the shape of my baby bump rather leaving them crowd confused. (especially those body-shaming-judgmental folks). Make sure though that the type of textile you have is the comfortable type, flexible and stretchy. I got this beaut from Cotton On.



The right accessories.
I only have like a handful of fashion accessories. I don't have much but the ones that I got are my absolute favorite pieces, every single one of them (if I can wear them everyday, I would but I don't have high expectations on jewelries or fashion accessories from retail store because eventually they will tarnish away). The pieces that I'm wearing is a mix and match from Forever 21 and H&M.


Purse.
I know that you don't normally see me with pink colors, but actually I don't mind having pops of colors either. I got this pink purse from a friend's garage sale and glad I bought it considering the quality and the brand.

#ladyboss
Whether you're a leader of an organization, manager or a boss - one way to show people around us (at the work place) that we mean business is by wearing the right outfit because that way, people will take us seriously. So, if you're pregnant or not; try to put some effort on your office attire to show them that you're charge! wink**** Before I end, below are some snap shots of me before my ootd's shoot enjoying free treat from Bigby's. haha!

Hair Products: Why I Must Use Hairfood Co.



Originally, I've planned on writing a review for Hairfood Co.'s about their products that I've been using and adore. However, I worry that my reader would expect me to do just that, because that will only mean that I'm kinda predictable (lol) I know that I'll be giving them that '5 star reviews' (like how the majority of reviewers did for them too) because undeniably, their products are indeed magical. So, in order to have a topic that will stand out a bit (instead of opting my typical way of introducing a brand) allow me to discuss things of why I must use Hairfood Co. Hopefully this information will WOW you away!  benefit you as well. lol
That's me with curly and obviously dry and damage hair due to hair color, styling heat and spray

Reason Number 1: Natural sources without the artificial substance.
For by now I am positive that almost anybody already knew the benefits of using natural based products. Products with natural essence will somehow help lessen the risk of getting cancer or any type of diseases linked to dangerous chemicals such as parabens, silicones, sulfates, (etc). Ultimately, this is something that Hairfood Co.'s proud about; using only natural ingredients on every products they come up/make. Just an 'fyi' Health, beauty and even environmental conscious people all over the globe are into this trend since it is really beneficial not only to the user but also to our dearest environment. This is something I look forward to as I age; pursue health and wellness, approve environmental advocacy.

one of my favorite products from Hairfood Co.

My personal conviction using commercialized products.
Even with today's easy access to information, it's frustrating to think that I had no chance of knowing the ugly truth about the chemicals being used in our shampoos and other beauty products that we are using every single day. Thanks to Hairfood Co., with their information I was able to realize the risks of constant exposure to harmful chemicals. Can't imagine how many million times I have soaked my head with those ugly stuff...uugghhh, yuck! My guilt builds up with my baby around - imagine the chemical traces all over my body while breastfeeding my poor child. what a nightmare!


Reason Number 2: Effective essentials used in generations
I can see that this company did their research well on every products they come up with. Most natural ingredients used in their products are basing from ancient asian wisdom that are proven to be really effective from generations to generations. That is why I am confident that their product will be able to deliver its magic due to that knowledge.

Through my own experience
I was breastfeeding my son a couple of months ago before this brand was introduced to me. During my breastfeeding journey, I was losing so much hair - I thought I'm going bald! Although (fortunately I did not go bald lol) but I did lose like a sack of hair during that stage. But when I started using their shampoo and conditioner (I recommend the Reborn Set {picture above}), I can see ga-zillion of tiny hair started to grow! Well, for me that was impressive since no other shampoo helped me grow my hair back after just a few weeks of using it.


Reason Number 3: Cheaper source for natural based products
Not only that I like their packaging (I always love brands with good packaging ) and their branding so much, I also like the fact that despite using expensive natural oils and creams they are making sure that everything are still affordable. Talk about effective product, a well thought packaging, all natural stuff with affordable price tag; I call it 'sulit ' (worth every penny)! Another thing, I can't help but notice how thoughtful they are to their customers by offering discounts and amazing deals so frequently. I love good deals - so why not? :)

Reason Number 4: Let us support local brands/businesses

Do you know, that when we buy local products - we are actually helping our economy? Of course! That's why I'll always recommend every person I know to continue buying locally made products because when we do that; we are helping local brands to not only survive but to thrive, Hopefully a brand that we can be proud of internationally. Imagine economic breakthroughs like job opportunities and more - if we help each other. To say the least, I admire this act of patriotism; therefore another reason why I should start using their products.

End.
I hope this article will somehow convince you to experience the brand yourself.  Visit them soon at SM Downtown Premier, ground floor. In the meantime, you can visit their facebook page here and don't forget to hit ' like' or follow their Instagram here. Gracias!

CDO's Newest Clothing Store: Uniqlo LifeWear

"This is LifeWear"
"UNIQLO LifeWear. Simple made better."

I am a style and fashion enthusiast basing in Mindanao; when some time ago we only have to make do with what we have in the city. I was so happy to know about Uniqlo's opening, one of Japanese' popular clothing retailers are finally here. After deciding about experimenting minimalist style for fashion, I was hoping that I could shop at clothing store such as Uniqlo and apparently wish granted!

Why Uniqlo?
"Fashion shouldn't be a burden" a nugget of wisdom that I read somewhere in their Spring Summer 2017 magazine - which to me, makes a lot of sense because that is the same principle that I truly believe in when it comes to style. Wear comfort with style, and that's what this store is all about. With its Japanese values of simplicity, quality and longevity; apparel are designed to be of the time and for the time, with modern elegance that it becomes the building blocks of our style.








Japanese style and fashion
I've always knew that Tokyo Japan is a style capital for fashion (or at least for south east asians) covering extreme to minimalist fashion trends. Aside from being a trend setter nation, their fashion industry has always been dedicated about producing quality and affordable clothing that will meet the needs of all style enthusiasts. Talking about meeting the style needs of every fashion observer, Uniqlo prepared an array of style choices for Muslims in Mindanao.















Uniqlo, here in CDO.
Visit their store at SM Downtown Premier, close to the information booth located at the ground floor of the mall. Please do 'like' their facebok page for more style update, promos, and the likes.







It was a blast attending their Exclusive Media and VIP Event together with fellow bloggers. Mayor Oca Moreno's was among Uniqlo's executives on the their stage for their store blessing.
