ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS

MANGO2_1When Christmas is right around the corner, I have this thing about wearing RED. I don’t know if it’s just me but then it makes me feel all festive and warm inside! Well, I felt the warmth literally with this coat on and gosh how I wish that I didn’t live in a tropical country. I would LOVE to experience a White Christmas yet again.

When I saw this jacket on the racks at Mango I knew for a fact that it was something I needed. Yes, needed. I may live in the Philippines but it doesn’t mean I can’t travel or even lend it to my loved ones and friends who will be going somewhere chilly and might need a gorgeously red coat to keep them all warm and cozy! PLUS! This beyond chic coat is so affordable it wont burn a hole in your wallet!

Also, if you know of anyone who is flying-back, moving or visiting somewhere cold and is looking for a chic coat? Tell them to rush to Mango. I promise you! OH! And, if you want get that family member, relative or friend a gift, this coat would be perfect!

For those wondering, this is how the pretty dress I’m wearing looks like sans the coat. It’s got these very chic sort of box pleats going on in front and at the back of the lower part of the dress. Isn’t this such a cute piece for Christmas parties?

This dress is something you can definitely wear over and over again. It’s easy to work around with. You can wear flats, boots or like what I did, pumps and just layer on some accessories! I decided to keep my accessories at a minimum since I had a gorgeous red coat on.

How’s everyone’s Christmas shopping going? I hope you’ve all started cause I for one haven’t! WISH ME LUCK! With that said, let’s get into the Christmas spirit shall we? Here’s my favorite Christmas song and I hope you like it as well, it’s All I Want for Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey! Only a few more days!!

ESPRIT TIMEWEAR EVENT

ESPRITA few months back (I know, major backlog. I blame a corrupt CD for this), I was given the chance to walk the runway for Esprit Timewear. It

was a different experience considering not only was I going to model clothes but I was to model a watch as well! I along with Vern and David

were given the chance to be the blogger representatives and we also got to style ourselves for the show, how fun is that?!

THE CLIQUE ISSUE: YOUNG STAR FEATURE

YSWhenever Young Star asks to feature me, it’s something I never think twice about. It’s always a definite YES! So, with that said — I didn’t let this opportunity pass. I only knew a little about the shoot, like not exactly the whole idea of what the feature was going to be (which got me curious yet excited at the same time) except that we had to dress up in our Sunday Barbecue Best!

TWO STEPS TWICE

STEPSLast Saturday, I along with a bunch of friends were part of a shoot. I won’t give anything away cause I’d like for you all to be surprised

when it comes out — Don’t worry! I’ll tweet it once it’s been published (which is probably Friday this week). Anyway, the theme? Sunday

Barbecue. With that said, this is what I’d probably wear to a barbecue, haha! What do you think?
