Vacation Diary – Day 1


Hello fabulous people! Didn’t I tell you I have so many things in mind to do because it’s the start of my vacation leave from work today? Well, I just started doing one of those things. Picture taking and more picture taking. LOL! Today, the husband and I went to Austin to check out Forever21 at Ezperanza Crossing as well as to eat in a seafood restaurant which we did not really know where. It was kind of disappointing at Forever21 though because I didn’t buy anything although they have a lot of cute clothes. The frugal and reasonable mind kicked in, I could get those clothes online for cheaper prices whenever stores go on sale. So I decided to just look around and didn’t buy anything at all which made my husband happy and proud of me. Haha!


We dropped by downtown for a hot minute just to take some pics. It was disappointing too, haha, because the wind started blowing which is evident in my skirt (swingyskirt that is!) and looked like the rain was getting ready to pour down when we got there. But even so, we still managed to take a few pics, quick, fast and in a hurry.




And after taking pics we got hungry of course, we searched google for the nearest seafood restaurant and it led us to Pappadeaux! It was my first time to eat in the restaurant and it was fantastic! The food was excellent and comes in real huge servings.


This was mine, Pan Seared Trout with Rice Risotto. Delicioso!


This was my husband’s because he is a catfish fan. Grilled catfish in whatever they put in it and it was so good.


So today was fabulous! After dinner, one last pic before we headed back home.

My outfit, Forever21 Lace top given to me by a friend in California (thank you so much) and I love it, lace skirt – I got from Burlington in my latest buys, Purse from Amazon and Wedge Booties from Forever21.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post fabulous people! See you again tomorrow 🙂 Have a good one!

From the House to the Meadows!




Hey! You know what day is today? It’s the start of my 10-days vacation from work. Yay! And it’s my husband’s too. So I am ecstatic! There are a lot of things in my mind that I want to do and that I need to accomplish. Lastnight, I was like grabbing a notepad and writing down those things. But let’s start with posting pictures that we took yesterday before going out for lunch. I have this outfit for awhile now, my top was actually a dress I cut and altered into a top because it didn’t look right for a dress and my skirt was like a size 10 I got from the thrift store so I had to alter it first too before wearing it. Well, my husband said, I always find a way to make a dress work and that’s really my goal eversince, to be innovative in fashion. It feels great to see stuffs that you altered and made yourself and you actually wear them because they are wearable now.

Fashion Lesson for Today: Always be Innovative!

Hope you guys have a wonderful Monday and a fruitful week ahead.

I Found The Old Me!

I Found The Old Me!

Hi! I am going through some old photos tonight and here is what I found. The old me taken early 2011 when I was still in the Philippines 🙂 I guess what I wanted to do here is just share to you guys a part of me when I wasn’t blogging yet. Sometimes, I am thinking, do I miss it back home in the Philippines? Yeah, in most days I do. And when I see old photos I am reminded of my first home, of the fun, of the wonderful people, of the delicious food and of the lovely extended family. But for my filipino readers, to my friends and family, home coming is not soon yet 🙂

I hope you guys have a goodnight 🙂

The Shirt She Made!




Hello Fashionistas! Happy Weekend Y’all! These are the photos I promised which were taken yesterday by my husband. This is the shirt I made which I posted in “Thinking Outside the Box”. Isn’t that cute? I have paired in cohesion to my recent purchases, the Jessica Simpson’s Skinny Jeans which I bought from Burlington and my spiked shoes from plus my recently thrifted purse. And do you know how much my shoes cost, $10.99. That is a wow! It’s very light and comfy as well which is the most important thing for me because I think I will be wearing these shoes a lot. I am sorry guys, I am bragging about my bargains, I just couldn’t help it. Hehe!

So what do you think?

I hope you guys enjoy this post. See you on my next one. 🙂

Thinking Outside the Box!

Thinking Outside the Box!

Hi! Today, I found a small Hanes t-shirt in my closet that is still new. For some reason, I can’t remember what I bought it for. I am not a t-shirt person so I was wondering if I could alter this to a new top and design it into something that is wearable for me. So here is the outcome. From a simple t-shirt to a fashionable top. 🙂 I will wear it tomorrow for a lunch out with the husband so you know I am gonna be taking a picture. I hope you will check it out. Let see how it fits and if it works 🙂

Real steal purchases for today...

Hello again! I told you in my post earlier that I went to the mall today with a friend of mine. And of course we went to Burlington to get the real deals. And like their tagline says, brag about it. I am gonna brag about my purchases too. Can you imagine I got this cutesy Tommy Hilfiger dress for $7.98 on sale? This Jessica Simpson’s skinny low rise jeans for $12.00 and the skirt and loose comfy pants for $4.00 each. I ended up having to pay $35.00 only including taxes. What a real deal it was! And of course it made your Asian fashionista so happy 🙂 and can’t wait to wear them and show you some pics guys.

Hi! How are you guys doing today? I am supposed to take some pics today after work but unfortunately, the temperature changed.

However, I found some old photos, not old old, some photos that were taken spring of last year and one of those was this photo I posted now.
My outfit, Levi’s jeans, body central ruffled top and flat boots bought from amazon.
I hope you guys have a goodnight 🙂

You Have to be Imperfect to be Real!


“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.” 
―    Steve Maraboli

As I was looking through a series of fashion blogs, girls who are 5’9″, even taller, uniquely pretty and skinny like real models, I was thinking to myself, where do I stand as a blogger? Is my blog worthy of your time, would you prefer to look at the almost perfect girls because they look like the models you’ve seen in your InStyle Magazine? Or would you follow my blog because I am a striving blogger, who wants to inspire real people like you, because I believe fashion is for everybody, regardless of race, color and nationality? Whatever your reason for following me, for reading my blog,  I always hope I give you comfort in believing in me.

My outfit for today, Charlotte Russe cropped candy jacket, old top, hi-lo skirt from Ross, lace up booties bought from Amazon, retro baroque sunnies from Amazon, and thrifted purse.

I hope you enjoyed your Monday Fashionistas! See you on my next post….
