Outfit Inspiration | White Sneakers with Bodycon Dress



Congratulations to the winner of O-Cedar Microfiber EasyWring Mop Noelle D.  She emailed me that she have received her prize already!

Thanks to all of you that joined the raffle ♥ 
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Okay on to today's post.  

I have shown you the first part of this "white sneakers" series a couple of weeks ago.  I love that outfit inspiration on White Sneakers, White Shirt, White Jeans & Statement Necklace.  But this outfit inspiration I also like - white sneakers with bodycon dress.
The bodycon I'm wearing is totally something that can be so dress up but the white sneakers dress it down.  I just had a messy hair bun hair or maybe you woud like relaxed curls or however you want it.

I'm also wearing a statement earrings here, love how it looks a little "edgy".  I know I'm old, I'm not supposed to use that word, that's why I inserted the word "little" before it, lol!

I hope you like today's outfit inspiration.  Remeber....

[REPOST] DIY Fall Decor | Washi Tape Pumpkins

I'm super excited to show this project from last year once again this year!

I still love white pumpkins, it still makes my heart skipped ♥
They were craft pumpkins and there is something about white pumpkins that makes it look so chic.  
What I have in mind is something with gray and black accent to dress up these white pumpkins, similar to Lil' Luna's pumpkins.  That was my inspiration.

So when I saw the black and white polka dots and the gray and white polka dots washi tapes, it immediately jumped into me.  

Working with the craft pumpkins and the washi tape was super easy.  If I had to move the washi tape over to the left or right, pulling it off from the pumpkin does not ruin the tape at all.

I started by cutting the washi tape into a curvy shape to kind of go around the top of the pumpkin against keeping it just straight.
Then starting at the top of the pumpkin, I adhered the washi tape all through the bottom.  Thanks to my 4-year old daughter! She had fun helping me out on this craft by cutting the washi tape.♥
It's that easy!  When it was done, my....it was so pretty!
Repeated the same process using the gray and white washi tape on my other white pumpkin.

And I have these really chic white pumpkins!  Super easy and so pretty.  My kind of project!
Oh by the way, don't forget to check out my Yarn-Wrapped Pine Cones for easy-and-zero-dollar-touches-of-fall-inside-your-home-kind-of-projects.
Come back again for more pine cone crafts coming up!

Until then...

Outfit Inspiration | White Sneakers, White Shirt, White Jeans & Statement Necklace


This week is your last chance to join the O'Cedar Mop Raffle.  If you have't joined yet, you have to go for it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Although I wear heels all the time (#shortwomenproblem) at work then drive in my flats.  The older I get the more my feet hurts, resulting to my slow obsession on sneakers - white specifically ♥

Today's post is the first of the White Sneakers Outfit inspiration.  If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen this photo.
There's nothing more cooler than wearing all white.   

Soft white shirt, white jeans and white sneakers with a statement necklace is all I needed that day.
I got my Vans white sneakers at DSW but there are many options of white sneakers online.  I also like chuck taylor and if you like coral, you would definitely like sperry below, see link below.

Wearing a statement necklace will also give you a pop of color.  Bright red lipstick does that too ☺
I hope you like today's outfit inspiration.  Remember...

The Sacrement of Matrimony

Today, I would like to share the most memorable and most important experience of my family.

The Mr. and I have been civilly married for more than 8 years and being both Catholics, it has been our dream to be blessed with the Sacrament of Matrimony, in the Catholic church, in the presence of our family and friends, and in the Philippines. 
We were both born in the Philippines and now American Citizens.  To be able to have the church wedding there, it would really mean so much more for us.

We also thought of having the church wedding here in the US but my parents and my siblings, except for my older sister, all live in the Philippines.  It would be easier for my husband's family to go to the Philippines than having my family come to the US - it is cost efficient and realistic.

Getting a US Tourist Visa is very difficult there.  You have to jump through hoops to actually get it.

So we decided to do it there.

We saved money so we can do it in the Philippines.  Plane tickets, hotel expenses and wedding expenses is what we have been saving for.

After a few years of saving.
Finally, in July 2016 - the Church Wedding that we have been waiting for ---happened.
We are so thankful and so grateful to God for helping us make this dream come true.  We are very blessed.

I will be posting more about the wedding planning process, the post wedding preparation and photos, the church ceremony photos and stories, and the reception photos and experience.

Until then...
