As early as today, I have decided to share the Color of the Year 2014 post. The color emerald of last year has given us hope and inspiration. However, we have never been more inspired with the chosen hue for the coming year. After reading the press release of color authority Pantone, here's my comments of the chosen color of the year.

Top Seven Reasons to Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

It is amazing to talk about good health and longevity. It is very inspiring. For days, I've been reading about taking care of my health. I felt good about it. After all, health means wealth.

Last week, someone asked me about the reasons I eat more fruits and vegetables. I thought of sharing my fear of having dry skin and getting sick. I decided to share the negative effects of eating less fruits and vegetables. I always feel sluggish. My skin isn't good. To avoid these nasty things, let's talk about the top seven reasons to eat more fruits and vegetables.

1. May reduce disease risk

If you're trying hard to protect your body from any kind of disease, you also need to eat more fruits and vegetables. They're readily available to reduce the risk of many diseases, including high blood pressure, heart disease and more.

Off Duty Look for Emmy Rossum

We're in the mood for an interesting fashion know-how today. Maybe, you're in for an inspiring post. Here's a dress down look post for you.

We like to try amazing dress down looks everyday. When there's no work and there's more time to perform other tasks, wearing comfortable outfits is necessary. It's like taking a break from work. In terms of fashion, off duty look is a hot topic nowadays. It is related with chic street style that many style enthusiasts love to talk about.

We need inspiring photos on dress down style. Luckily, Emmy Rossum recently showed off a remarkable attire that is perfect for non-busy days. As she visited a hair salon in Beverly Hills on Thursday, she donned a gorgeous ensemble. By wearing a loose-fitting grey jumper over a navy and white shirt, teamed with black trousers and black knee-high boots, Emmy looked fabulous. To highlight the simple style, she wore several gold bracelets and carried a chic brown striped bag.

Pretty Yellow Fashion Items

Many of us have a favorite website online. Based on our interests, we check some online portals to learn new things.

Polyvore is my favorite place online when I want to match clothes and accessories. With its mood board creation tool, I can create a look that I like based on my imagination. It's really a fun activity. It changes my mood from gloomy to happy.

Obviously, I like happy colors. Some of my favorite hues are chic neon and splatter of dark classy colors. It's perfect for contrasting outfits in a fabulous way.

By wearing pretty fashion items with yellow hues, it is easy to maintain a cheerful day. I am fond of matching ultra glamorous pieces with simple ones, just like what I had in my Christmas Wishlist for this year. The skirt can be changed to match the blouse. I just added it because of the classy design.

Lea Michele and her Thigh High Leather Riding Boots

We love Lea Michele's style. She is an expert in showcasing chic frocks, lovely matching separates and other ensembles. Now, let's take a look at her chic street style.

In the world of fashion, wearing boots is one way of showcasing a chic street style. It is also one way of showing off a charming personality and edgy look. As boots are made for walking, no one can resist it as a fashion necessity.

In this Daily Mail photo, Lea Michele dazzles

Earlier today, Lea Michele showed off an amazing way to wear boots. She was spotted leaving a Glamour Magazine fashion shoot wearing a chic outfit. The star donned a slimming overcoat, leggings and thigh high leather riding boots. She emphasized her street style with dark shades, leather tote bag and long pale colored nails.

Lea's outfit is so fabulous. However, her thigh high leather riding boots took center stage as she dazzled in the street. As this season's must-have footwear trends, it's time to invest on buying boots as classic footwear item.

Chic Nail Polish in Neon Fuchsia Review

I like dainty and neat colors for my nail polish collection. When I told my husband that I want more pink shades, he bought Chic nail polish in neon fuchsia for me.

Pink is a happy color. As fashion lovers love pink, I know I'm in the right direction. In terms of nail polish, choosing a vivid color that will match one's outfit is fun.

Chic nail polish in neon fuchsia pink is perfect for me. It is not dark pink that will surely clash with the colors of clothes. It is easy to apply and packed in a stylish bottle.

The product is also very affordable. For less than a dollar, you can have gorgeous nails in minutes. For weekend beauty preparation, this nail polish is a perfect choice.

I didn't apply any colorless nail polish since I want a clean and simple look. I also opt to have shorter nails since I have many handwriting tasks for this week. I want to feel comfortable while writing without sacrificing nail art.  

Almost Tangerine Tango for Sunday Modest Clothing Pieces

From now on, I will write about my Sunday's best that I showcase every weekend. I'll label the posts as modest clothing to give my share of modesty fashion campaign.

But before that, I'd like to share that I had a wonderful time in visiting one of my favorite travel destinations, Dapitan City. We traveled there through Rent a Car Philippines travel arrangement because it's a group tour. I'll definitely visit the place again with my husband.

Last Sunday, I chose a more colorful style. It's a way to say goodbye to the color of the year theme that is tangerine tango. I wore a knee-length skirt teamed with a spaghetti strap shirt. To add drama to the outfit and to cover my shoulders, I donned a chic Old Navy blazer.

To highlight my blouse, I wore my edgy shoes from Primadonna and emphasized it with black stockings. I know that I wore an over-the-top outfit but I really like the color palette of the style. The long necklace is a gift from my husband.

Finding the Right Cosmetic Skin Doctors

There are two types of dermatologists such as the general and cosmetic dermatologist. In this post, let's talk about finding the right cosmetic skin doctors.

The primary concern of many people is the track record of a dermatologist. You can check the biography of a skin doctor, including his or her continuing education involvement. Many cosmetic continuously take courses at international schools such as Sharjah University Laser Training and Research Center to improve their services. It's one way of working with a highly experienced and updated physician.

Try to schedule an appointment during busy days. In that way, you can have an opportunity to ask some patients about the doctor's services while waiting for your turn. You will also have an idea if the dermatologist is in demand. In that sense, you'll be treated by an experienced and well-known skin doctor.

Lastly, don't forget to ask questions. The dermatologist must know your reasons for acquiring his or her services. Then, listen to the doctor's remarks and suggestions. You'll be amazed of the things that you'll learn along the way.

Confessions of a Dog Lover Published in her Fashion Blog

My story is a result of my trip to Mindanao. I'll be staying here for two years. I booked an airplane ticket five months ago to be here. To reach our place, I joined other travelers on a rented bus and enjoyed a Rent a Car Philippines service.

Here it is.

There are many people who noticed my closeness to dogs. There's a story behind it. It doesn't happen overnight.

When I was a kid, I don't like dogs. They're a waste of time for me. I have to feed them. They want to play with me. At that time, I only need them during track and field practice. I was scolded by my mother because of hitting a pregnant dog. The dog messed with my school supplies so it really ruined my day.

My Friend Chara and her pet cat. :)

These days, I changed a lot. I no longer hate dogs. I love them. We adopted a sickly cross-bred puppy in a bid to stay safe at home after news of ruthless robbers circulate in our former place. Yes, she's sickly and we didn't know it. But we found out that she's really sweet. We named her Ice after days of thinking about a name for the puppy.

A few days later, we saw a cute puppy in a popular shopping district. We adopted another one for another reason: we simply love the dog. Since Enzo stole our hearts, we became vigilant of our attitude. Enzo taught us to be humble and loyal. He's very protective.

Of course, having two dogs is expensive. Later on, I found a way to lessen the money needed for their daily sustenance. Our dogs constantly travel with us. We can't just leave them behind. It 's unthinkable to be separated with our pets.

Our dogs, Enzo and Ice.

One time, when Enzo and Ice were left in the care of my husband's family, I met another dog named Chara. She didn't like me at first. But when I started giving him dog biscuits and cooked meat, we became close. All people in the community noticed our strong bond that they often wonder how I tamed the scary dog. She's a small dog, a third one of Chihuahua parents. Because I'm alone in the apartment, Chara accompanied me all the time. We would often visit the beach and roam around. The dog's owner told me to return the dog once Enzo and Ice arrive in the city.

Chara has a friend named Tiger. He is also a dog of our neighbor. Unfortunately, he was abused by his owners. He was forced to be chained for days. As a result, the dog didn't want to eat nor drink water. Two weeks after the ordeal, they unleashed the dog. However, he developed extreme fear and went to the woods alone. My friend and I searched for him. He's gone for days. It was the rainy season so we're really worried for him. One day, we found out that he's already decaying under a bush. It's so sad we're not able to notice him. He didn't respond to our call. In a way, he committed suicide because of his abusive owners.

When I learned about Tiger's fate, I really cried. He was a friendly and innocent creature. When Chara learned about her friend's fate, he didn't stop barking.

Chara has also her own heartbreaking tale. During her second pregnancy, she's very pale. She labored prematurely one rainy night. The next morning, she took one puppy through her mouth and showed it to me. She kept on crying, perhaps weeping because of her dead puppies. It was a heartbreaking scene and I can't do anything to help her. No one survived. All the puppies were dead.

Even now, I still think of Chara. We transferred to another apartment and I already accepted our fate. For once, we met in this world. Maybe, someday we will meet again.

I salute you, dog lovers out there! I know how you feel every time a furry friend is in trouble. I know.

How to Dress When You Work From Home

I am a freelance writer. I work from home. Practically, I work anywhere. As long as there's a stable Internet connection and a suitable working table with a laptop and school supplies, I can perform my tasks everyday. My inspiration for this lifestyle are the successful work from home friends that I met online.

One of my concerns in working from home is the dress code. Of course, I still want to work with my pajamas but I think it is better to dress like I'm working in the office. After all, I have a home office for my projects so wearing the correct attire everyday is a must. At least, to inspire me for my daily writing assignments.

Why is it necessary to dress properly when you're working from home? Personally, I like wearing comfy-chic items while working. It helps me manage my time. For example, I am already set to go out to run errands during break time. I don't need to prepare for it.

Aside from that, I always feel I am professional with my matching separates on and chic footwear on display, ready for a walk in between breaks. My bag is already stacked with coins and the keys. Before going out, I'm already prepared for all I need.

If I have interviews through Skype, at least I'm already presentable with my makeup on and amazing look.

Many bloggers who are freelance writers like me share their ideas about how to dress when you work from home. Here are amazing way to do it.

Wear stylish outfits

There are tons of stylish outfit ideas online that you can use as inspiration. Wear trendy items while completing heavy workload to inspire yourself. It will keep you working and forget about the arduous tasks assigned to you. It's a trick that I've been following for days.

Wear comfortable clothes

During rainy days, wear comfortable clothes. On the opposite, wear summer pieces during summer with colorful accessories. If you have a schedule for daily workouts, make sure to prepare an attire for the task.

Chicken Ati-Atihan Restaurant Review

These days, we want to find the best restaurants that are located in our area. Sometimes we feel the need to list the places that are perfect for lunch or dinner. For those who are looking for an affordable and delicious meal, try dining at Chicken Ati-Atihan. The restaurant has various branches in Mindanao and Visayas area. In this restaurant review, I am going to feature the Chicken Ati-Atihan Dipolog branch. My husband kept telling me to try dining in the said place.

For those who are planning for field trips or tours, this is one of your choices to enjoy lunch, especially after long trips through Rent a Car Philippines travel arrangements. The restaurant has many choices for travelers, backpackers and food bloggers.

The place is cozy and relaxing. In our quest for a relaxing lunch, we decided to eat in a dining place with simple structure, something that is a bit exposed for fresh air. I like eating while observing the streets for new ideas. If you like it too, dining at Chicken Ati-Atihan is exciting.

The dining area is spacious. The dining area is wide and spacious. You can choose from different areas within the restaurant according to your needs. At that time, I want to take photos for the restaurant review so we decided to stay at the back area. There is less people and it is very cozy.

It is affordable. For a total of P284.00, we had a delectable meal and amazing dining experience. We ordered  two meals with unlimited rice value and side dishes, one buko halo and one calamansi juice. The pork liempo is tasty and delicious. Of course, I love my share that is grilled chicken thigh.

We learned about this place through a friend. I thought it's expensive to dine at Chicken Ati-Atihan. In truth, it is not. Of course, many people love its pang-masa appeal.


If you are saving cash and you want a good meal, Chicken Ati-Atihan is one of your choices for lunch out. The dining place has grilled menu for those who love eating grilled chicken and pork. Their snacks, side dishes and drinks are also affordable. The unlimited rice promo is very enticing.


I noticed that the food attendants are not trained in working while under pressure. Before we finished our meal, we were asking for additional rice, but the waiters are too busy attending to the requests of other people. Even if we waited for them to have time, they're not able to give us what we need.

Recycled Dress for Sundays

Every Sunday, I wear modest clothing pieces to attend church services. We believe in wearing simple clothes, usually knee-length dresses and chic matching separates. Some of my friends prefer printed dresses teamed with heels. Personally, I like lovely separates such as blouse and skirt combo that I usually pair with edgy boots or sky-high heels.

Last Sunday, I wore a recycled frock. I like my light pink dress, which I wore last year for Christmas party. It has a mermaid-cut  skirt but I trimmed it down to have a knee-length frock. This is the same dress that I wore for my sister-in-law's wedding and for the fashion show last September.

For the church service, I decided to wear a red maroon blazer. It has a ribbon design for enticing detail. To complete the outfit, I donned a pair of Primadonna shoes and carried a blue-pink handbag. The blazer changed the formal wear to a Sunday's best item, perfect for the occasion. My earrings are from Broadway Gems.

One of our favorite fashion darlings is Lily Collins. She is not only a style trendsetter. She is also a famed fashion lover. She has a pretty face and amazing personality. She is also well-known for her talent in acting and became one of the favorite lead actresses in the movie industry.

Earlier today, the 24-year-old actress was spotted at the Metiers d'Art fashion show in Dallas. The Chanel runway event allowed Lily to show off a dazzling look by wearing a sequin dress. The glittering frock, with a V-neck design, emphasized her toned figure.

Tips in Creating Accessory Organizer

We know that do-it-yourself way of creating accessory organizers is one of the most popular home projects nowadays. Many young women, artists and mothers find amazing inspiration to create such crafts. It's more exciting to do. We can find remarkable tips online, too. Aside from that, we find it economical and easy to accomplish during break time.

Our accessory organizer at home. :) 

Personally, I prefer recycled materials in creating an accessory organizer. I created an accessory organizer made of twigs, or little tree branches from the backyard. I cleaned the twigs and painted it with dark brown color. I also made sure that its holder is stunning. I used an old canister that I bought two years ago.

We can also re-purpose unwanted materials and scraps at home. It is a good timing because we clean our homes before New Year. We throw away scraps and other unused materials to give room for more important things. However, I suggest that we reuse or recycle such things. You can beautify an unused screen material to hold your beautiful earrings and necklaces. It's very beautiful.

Accessory Organizer 

By the way, a message board jewelry holder is also very popular these days. If you have an unused message board at home, create a beautiful accessory holder to organize your accessories.

If you have a huge picture frame that you are no longer using for the living room, make a chic earring holder. It will avoid being messy and disorganized. After all, we want harmony all around us.

Lastly, old towel racks full of earrings, necklaces and bangles are adorable. It is essential to arrange the items based on the holder's design for best results.  

Pink and Black Combo

Pink and black combination is one of my favorite ensembles. Let's talk about it in this post.

Of all the things that I've done as a blogger, preparing clothes is one of my favorite tasks. I like creating ensembles based on different inspiring outfits showed off by style enthusiasts from across the globe. Obviously, I am a pink lover and I like to mix it with dark hues.

My clothes are from a nearby thrift store. I bought my bag at SM Accessories
last year. My shoes are from Zalora.

In wearing pink and black attire, I use happy colors to finish it off. I love wearing chic flat shoes during Sundays. I rarely wear heels these days. My yellow flat shoes are from Zalora.

For me, pink and black combo is exciting. It reminds me of the remarkable pieces that I used to wear during college. I had less clothes then, but I already have a sharp fashion sense. It's a two-way love affair. No wonder I enjoy writing about fashion nowadays.

Fashion Meets Philanthropy with Angela and Roi Handbags

Fashion is not only showcasing gorgeous outfits to the world. For many people, it is also a way to inspire others. Some people use it to help others. In one way or another, fashion is also about many things just like love.

I'm very impressed with a certain fashion brand that was created by two style lovers. They're partners in showing off the way fashion meets philanthropy. Angela & Roi Handbags is very popular with its "I Donate By Color" business message.

Here are the three things that makes the brand so inspiring.

1. The company donates $5 for each sale to selected non-profit organization or NPO.

This scheme is based on color theory associated with each NPO. According to their website, "For example, Lung Cancer awareness links traditionally with the color white. When customers purchase a white handbag, five dollars will automatically be donated to Lung Cancer Alliance. Our company works together in total with eleven non-profit organizations." Consequently, they offer different colors to match with the non-profit organizations that they work with in the industry.

It's so impressive that you'll be giving away something for those who are in need aside from getting a chic handbag. It's a double purpose that style enthusiasts with surely love.

2. The company uses high quality vegan leather to create fabulous handbags.

That means they're not using materials made of animal skin. In our home, we have two dogs. We are animal lovers, too. With this kind of business, we felt secured and happy that no animals are in danger in the name of fashion.

It's a good thing that they offer a 90-day warranty of their products. What more can I ask for?

3. The company also offers free shipping and free returns on all orders.

If you have shopped in their shopping portal and you found a product that you want to return, it isn't a problem. You can avail of their free-shipping and free-return policy.

The products they offered are also modish and classy. It has vintage look and modern vibe. The company offers large and small tote handbags, shoulder bags and cross-body bags.

If you love shopping, don't forget to buy something that will help you save time and money when you're stuck in a fashion rut.

I didn't mention brands in each item because I want you to choose your own products. For a mesmerizing style, choose a classic look that will match with any occasion.

School for Laser in Plastic Surgery

One of the ways to enhance one's beauty is plastic surgery. With the popularity of laser in plastic surgery treatment, many physicians are trying to have an access to the best training programs to improve their knowledge on the well-known technology in the field of medicine. Thankfully, the Sharjah University Laser Training and Research Center has offered amazing courses for that purpose.

Two months ago, many doctors attended the three-day training program that the school had conducted for many students. Located in UAE, the educational institution continued to provide quality education and state-of-the-art training facilities to enhance the knowledge of medical professionals from nearby regions.

At present, the international school is gearing towards providing useful knowledge for the students in the field of medicine. The school's website has presented various ways to avail of the said programs with other essential information after each class.

5 Tips in Designing Your Bedroom Like a Hotel Room

There are thousand ways to recreate your bedroom. Sometimes it feels like you're lost with the right design. Today, I felt inspired to share amazing tips in designing your bedroom like a hotel room. I've seen the amazing accommodation photos of Watercamp Resort in Cavite, one of the best Cavite resorts, and I thought of writing about the topic. After all, interior design is also enhanced by studying inspiring properties in the travel industry such as hotel rooms, villas and vacation houses.

1. Use brown or tan rug to steady emotions and increase trust.

Because a rug is a symbol for one's footing, place a brown or tan rug in the bedroom of a child to give a stable foundation. Such earth color can help a nervous or very sensitive child feel more safe and secure.

2. Hang purses and backpacks on a coat hook.

Recently, I did this one in our bedroom. The effect is remarkable. We had a more spacious and trendy space for rest and relaxation. Just mount a coat hook to hold more items.

3. Paint a guest room peach to attract happiness.

Peach blends the sweetness of yellow with the warm feelings of pink. It's a symbol of optimism. In that case, paint the guest room with peace to have a pleasing, inviting and cheerful mood for guests.

4. Decorate with metal furnishings to encourage structure and determination.

If you're looking for a decor that can improve a person's persistence and concentration, use metal furniture such as brass bed or a metal desk. However, don't forget to mix it with wood furnishings to indicate balance and stimulate expansion.

5. Decorate with wood furnishings to encourage growth.

As mentioned, wood is a symbol of expansion. If you want to create a more spacious bedroom, include wood furnishings in your materials for recreating it. These pieces stimulate healthy growth for emotional, physical and mental well-being.

In one of your travel vacations, try to check the hotel room for inspiration. If you like rooms with white paint, designed with chic furnishings and a vibrant item for a pop of color, then make it your basis in decorating your bedroom.  Don't focus on minimalist designs if you like a colorful bedroom with subdued furnishings.

Tips in Choosing a Dermatologist

There are many dermatologists in the world. However, one practitioner differs from another in terms of educational background, training and perspective on treating patients. Some dermatologists are not active in continuing education such as short programs on laser in dermatology in a reputable school. It's not their priority. Others are learning new ways to treat their patients for purposes of complying requirements and professional standards. Many of the dermatologists are no longer effective and efficient in doing their jobs. Although many dermatologists have long time experience in the field of skin treatment, some of them are not take advantage of the latest technology to treat skin problems.

Since we need a dermatologist to treat skin health problems, it is essential to find the best one. Our goal is to find a dedicated, dependable, updated and amazing dermatologist in our area.

Choosing a Dermatology | Photo of a patient and dermatologist

Here are several factors that will help us find the best one.


We think it is important to choose an expert in the field of skin treatment. We should not feel ashamed to ask our prospects about their credentials.

Since not all dermatologists are the same in terms of educational background and history of practice, we should not lower our standards by taking someone we are unsure of. Some of the essential things to ask include their education, training, research orientation and experience in ensuring healthy skin for their patients.


Obviously, character is one of the most important factors in choosing a dermatologist. Each one of us, especially patients, deserves a dermatologist that is comfortable to work with and very accommodating. In other words, there should be balance between expertise and comfort as we ask a dermatologist for help.

Ability to teach

During treatment sessions, we expect our dermatologists to teach us valuable lessons on skin care. If a dermatologist is not willing to share knowledge, we are at loss.

In most cases, we learn the basics of skin care from our doctor. We want an honest set of prevention tips from our physicians. It includes basic education on having a healthy eating habit, exercise regimen and living a balanced life. After all, it's not about beauty that can be seen through the eyes. It's all about beauty inside out.

Willingness to investigate

For those who are looking for a dermatologist, choose someone who is willing to investigate on very essential health matters. The physician should be able to ask you questions about your skin and take the answers one by one for solutions. The dermatologist should be willing to record your answers, ask for follow-up questions and find results after giving the solutions. It's a lengthy process and a good professional relationship between the doctor and the patient is important.

Dermatology is a complex and vital part of medicine. It is not only about providing great skin after several treatments, but it also includes saving lives. For people who have experienced severe burns, they're expected to offer better treatment to restore the former healthy skin of the patients.

Comfortable Dress Down Look for Freelancers

As a freelance writer, I struggle with the right home office outfit everyday. Even if I work from home, I don't want to wear boring outfits. I want some color and chic designs for my off duty look.

When I work from home, I usually stay away from the computer every other 15 minutes to protect my eyes from overexposure. In doing so, I can play with the dog or scribble a menu plan for us.

During work breaks, I play with my dog Enzo.

For safety purposes, make sure all of your relatives and friends are swimming in the right area. In the same purpose, kids should only swim at kiddie pools. They should be supervised with someone while swimming for safety reasons.

Showcasing a Unique Ethereal Look

It has been my duty to give style options for my clients, friends and online friends. One day, I decided to recreate styles that are extraordinary.

My first step is to show off a unique ethereal look. By ethereal look, we are talking about highly refined and delicate style. I don't want to showcase an ensemble with more white and pale pink, so I decided to choose light orange shades.

The skirt is elaborately designed for style enthusiasts who want a unique clothing piece. The pink top is my choice, you can change it out of your own closet. Basically, nude pumps are gorgeous for this kind of outfit. For the other accessories, I chose delicately designed earrings and a chic purse.
