Old Shopping Haul – What Shoes Should I Wear?

Shopping for me is like a therapy, I have shopped a lot two years ago from dresses to shoes. I have never wore most of them, I have been contented keeping them and when it is time for me to use them, the shoes were not in great condition anymore, especially shoes/sandals from Natasha, the materials were stripping. I have used them only once and I already let them collect dust, since they were not in good condition anymore. My sister then had told me, that is how the brand work. The less you used them, the more they deemed unusable, but the more you wear them, the more the materials became elastic and strong.

Tomorrow will be my eldest aunt and her husband\’s  50th wedding anniversary, they will have renewal of vows and party and everyone is obliged to wear dresses and be glam if possible.

So to speak, I have to dig my closet for shoes to wear, I have bought a few from Zalora two years ago, they are a bit expensive but worth it. I have never wore them, but they are still in good condition and just need some cleaning as they collect dust after being keep for a long time.

Since, it is golden wedding anniversary the theme for tomorrow is golden yellow. I have tried a bridesmaid dress and I look like a pig in it.

Well, I cannot decide on what shoes to wear, I prefer the red one and my sister likes it too, but my mother disapproves it.

MIMAROPA Festival 2017: Fireworks Display and Night Market

Fireworks display in Odiongan isn’t a normal occurrence; firecrackers maybe yes (joke).   We directly went home after the last tribe finishes their performance without waiting for the winner to be announced because we still need to go home so we could return to town to watch the fireworks display at 9 o’clock in the evening.

We had dinner and after I feed my pets we went to town, we are bit late because the fireworks display already started but we are still along the way (Odiongan National High School), the gate 2 of Odiongan South Central Elementary School was closed so we have no choice but to run to gate 1 which is only open for pedestrians.   We are able to see half of the fireworks display, kids and kids alike were amazed with the fireworks display in the sky that they keep saying “Wow” and it was indeed a wow.

After the 10 minutes fireworks display we went to the night market, while waiting for my sister finding a parking area we stand at a corner and I started asking my mother if I am already smelly from the whole day activity, what is epic when I turned around I saw a “balut vendor” and that’s where the foul smell was coming from, the vinegar for the balut.

The night market wasn’t that large but it was already good to have one, there are different items on sale at the night market from souvenir shirts, bargain clothes and dresses, souvenir key chains, paintings, Christmas decors and etc., The other end was food stalls which is good for hungry night goers and visitors looking around at the marble stores at the Children parks.

Shopping for Ever Belina Advance BB Cream and Dark Eye Concealer

Today, there is a lot of beauty regimens in the market but I don\’t know a lot about them but not so long ago I tried using BB cream or Blemish balm since my face became old and dull, aside from BB cream I also bought dark eye concealer since the skin below my eyes are quite dark like how a panda looks like.


Honestly , when the world around me become gray I look even worse than before but seeing how my sister take care of her self I was encourage to do the same especially when my mother says I am still young but I already look like someone in their 50\’s. Yeah right, it was been a long time that my mother and other relatives had told me that I already looked like a woman with dozens of kids since I can\’t even comb my hair at home and then even classmates and instructor in college who accidentally saw me in town always blurted out that my sister dress well than me so I decided to slowly look after myself to regain courage and self-confidence, although I only used these beauty regimes when I go to church every Sunday.

Sometime ago a friend had encourage me to learn how to use makeup since she is doing well with it but being not vain and because my sister was the one who do makeups at me when I am younger I declined the thought of learning how to use makeups.


Anyway, with the help of the young sale\’s lady in town where my mother is affiliated as a dealer I was able to choose which BB cream to use, I have asked her opinion which Bbcream is the best since she used one daily. I chooses Ever Bilena Advance BB Cream Whitening and Advance Perfect Eye Concealer.

BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage. {source}

Well, I\’ll post the review some other time.

Shopping for Discounted Natasha Sandals

Every woman needs a pair of high heels. It was been a long time since I wore high heeled footwear I think it was been ages, I favor sneakers and flats because they are more comfortable and easy to wear. My mother and sister brought home this beautiful and stylish sandals for me after finding that there is an available item in the shop where my mother was affiliated as a dealer. I have told them a few months ago after seeing this sandals in a brochure that it is beautiful and I would like to have a pair but since I can\’t afford it I didn\’t order and I can\’t think of a place or occasion where to wear them.


This sandals is a month to pay and it has dealer discount so I keep it instead of asking them to return it. I don\’t know yet where to wear them but there\’s only one place I know I could wear them, in the church. What\’s funny I lost my balance while trying them at home so I wonder if I will fall in embarrassment if I wore them outside someday.

Shopping and Reselling Unused Items

When my sister took a government exam in the neighboring city almost a year ago, I went with them and we’ve went directly to Manila to wander around. I was too presumable then; I took government national papers, bought things and clothes to carry somewhere far but life isn’t always the way we planned it, so the lesson I learned in life not to get too excited and don’t expect too much it is either from yourself or from people around you.

When everything turned upside down, I hid all the things I collected I didn’t throw them like what I have said. Anyway, few of them were perfumes I just let them sit in one corner collecting dust, I already lost count how many of them I bought, I thought I bought more but when I checked them they’re just less than I thought they were be.


Recently my mother dig them out from the dark corner, the perfumes remained there untouched by me since the day I hid them in, gladly I didn’t bought things for J yet like I have planned or else there are more things that will collect dust. I choose to resell the Jordache perfumes and make money out them. I have bought them on huge sale in a Japanese store in Manila for less than $2 and reselling them for less than $6. The Jordache perfume scent I have bought were No. 4, 5 and 7, they were the only available scent because the perfumes were almost sold out when we stumble at them in the shopping mall.

Meanwhile, the clothes I have bought I wore them to church every Sunday, I think that’s where the clothes destined to be worn, the clothes that was for different weather was kept in the very bottom of a huge box and some of the new pants given to me by my mother goes to reselling items too since they were too large for me to wear, I’ve lost a lot of weight without struggling on how to do it, yes no dieting needed. If you will asked me, I believed all those weights were transferred to my sister since she gained a lot of weight today, LOL.
