Shopping for Trends ft. StyleWe

I’m at it again, tab shopping instead of window shopping and I have to admit, this selection has by far been my favorite!

I found myself browsing through StyleWe this time and I’ve developed a particular fondness for their designer section which is full of trendy, versatile and essential closet picks.

Honestly, I don’t really know what my “style” is but lately I’ve been leaning more towards basics and comfortable pieces because I’ve been working a lot more than I typically have over the past few months. Being able to move with ease is my topmost priority now and these pieces are perfect for the sudden lifestyle shift. PLUS, I could totally travel in these pieces, too!

If you’re a total online shopping junkie, I would definitely recommend checking out StyleWe.

Honestly, can we ever have enough clothes??

Happy Shopping,

Honest Thoughts Before Getting A (Brazilian) Wax & Some Comforting Truths ft. Hey Sugar

There’s a certain sense of anxiety and liberation when it comes to getting waxed. I’ve been waxed “down there” before and let me tell you, every.single.time I go to a new place my mind goes to a million different places. So for this post, I’ve decided to write down a few honest thoughts I’ve had before getting a Brazilian wax and some truthful truths to make you feel better about it if you’ve been thinking about it but never had the guts to do it.

Thought # 1:

“What if I smell?”

Comforting fact:

Hey Sugar hands you wet wipes before the session even begins together with a paper pad that goes under you for hygienic purposes so you don’t have to worry about anything.


Thought # 2

“Do I have to do any pre- waxing activities to make it easier?”

Comforting fact:

Pain wise, probably not. If you can handle pain, you can but if you can’t then you’re just gonna have to be a trooper! But… I do prefer to trim just a little bit to make the process a little faster but don’t cut TOO short, you still want there to be enough space for the wax to hold on to.

Thought # 3

“Isn’t it weird to have another person in that… region?”

Comforting fact:

Waxing is a profession so basically, you’re not the ONLY person your therapist has waxed- it’s as normal to them as it is for an OB to see a baby coming out of a person so don’t stress about it too much. To ease the tension though, you can always come in the first time to get another service (check other services below) and see how you like your handler for your next private session.

Thought # 4

“I’m still towards the end of my (.). What if I drip?”

Comforting fact:

Well, you can’t go until after a week after your TOM anyways so go home, get some rest and come back when everything is clear.


Waxing of certain body parts is often times taboo in our rather conservative country but there shouldn’t be any shame in taking care of yourself so don’t be ashamed to bare it all.

If there’s one thing that money cannot buy, it’s service and Hey Sugar truly offered me one of the best pampering sessions by far with their super accommodating and well trained staff & clean facilities.

They are open at Ayala Center Cebu, SM Seaside & SM City Cebu.

Banker Stripes & How to Wear Them

Banker stripes have made an exceptional comeback in the later parts of 2016 and now, 2017. In fact, I talked about how to wear them and style them in my 2017 Fashion Trends Video here.

Although banker stripes were made popular in an office setting, it doesn’t mean you need to look like you work at a 9-5 job. A cute, casual were to wear a structured tunic like this is to pair them with short shorts and dressy sandals.

If I could change anything about this top, I would probably tuck it in and throw in a cute belt or probably opt for a shorter top. Til the next time I wear this top then. In the meantime, I hope this look is something you can imitate in the near future!

Here’s the moving version of this look:

Styling Patterned Culottes

When caught between the crossroads of having to give up wearing shorts on a daily basis and not wanting to wear pants, I found refuge in culottes.

I admit to always being at least 10 months behind trends as culottes have been a big deal for at least the past year or so but no regrets, me and my half pants/ half shorts are now inseparable!

Styling plain and solid culottes are no brainers but when it comes to printed ones that are made of a stiffer material, it can be quite a challenge. There first time I wore these were here and now I’m back and I think I like this look a lot better.

Looking back at the previous looks’ photos and these, I guess I prefer this boxier silhouette more because 1. it masks my huge arms and 2. it actually feels like something I can run around in the whole day.

If you’re wondering where I am and what I was doing in these photos, I was actually running around and sweating the whole day at my brother’s family day.
