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.

Expertise

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.

Character

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.

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.


Don’t swim immediately after eating. After a hearty meal, take a short break. Don’t swim immediately to allow your body to adjust with the water. In some cases, people feel discomfort by swimming immediately right after lunch or dinner. Even though you’re in a pool party, it is still essential to follow this rule.

Wear proper swimming attire. Some pool managers disallow improper clothing for swimming. Make sure you have inquired about this. There are many suitable swimsuits and swimming trunks for swimmers.

All Things Blue and Beautiful for Clothes and Accessories

Discard all your worries for now. Let's talk about styling blue clothes and accessories for an impressive ensemble.

Why is it so exciting to wear blue clothes? The shades of blue, in the world of fashion, is the color of choice to look calm and pretty. It is a powerful color that demands attention, especially for those who love bright colors.


In this edition, I decided to wear clothes and accessories with blue shades to have a unique experience. Admittedly, I am not a blue lover since my favorite color is pink. But when some of my friends told me that I look good wearing such kind of attire, I decided to have a pictorial for my very first edition of Love Your Style with Karen.

My cobalt blue top and ruffled skirt are both from a thrift store. These days, cobalt blue is considered a sleek, modern and elegant color since it has vibrancy that you can't deny. Many years ago, it was called royal blue. To stay away from cheap fashion terms that style experts don't want to hear, the name was changed to cobalt blue instead.

As I've shared before, I have a schedule of bargain hunting every Friday. It's my shopping day of the week. My shoes is from Primadonna, which my husband bought three months ago. The blouse is in brighter shades while the skirt is light blue. I didn't wear jewelries at this time because I want a simple take on all things blue and beautiful. In that sense, I followed the "less is more" mantra. Aside from that, there's a monochromatic play in my outfit so I opted for a simple look.

Here are some tips for you.

Wear black accessories to match your blue outfit. Try wearing a black necklace or earrings for a more powerful style.

Don't use dark brown accessories. It will make your look boring. These contrasting colors, cobalt blue and dark brown, isn't perfect for a remarkable ensemble.

Choose a cobalt blue sandal to complement the color of your attire.

Fruit Diet for a Shapely and Healthy Body

My college years are all about school, extra-curricular activities and church-related events. I used to travel with my classmates. We also join tours in far away provinces through Rent a Car Philippines services. It's very exhausting for a student like me. I was too thin. During stressful hours, I easily get sick. My body cannot cope up with long hours of thesis preparation, reviewing lessons for examinations and other activities. Now that I value more of my health, I learn to eat right, exercise and have a good night's sleep.

For the whole day, we eat this food that I prepared before going to work. We had macaroni soup, mango and banana shake with bits of peanuts and bread.

When it comes to food intake, I am very conscious of what I eat. Luckily, I am good in preparing food. I like cooking. Recently, I researched for ideas to solve my fitness challenge - to get rid of excess fat in my belly in a natural way. I skipped lunch twice and had eaten sweet potatoes for dinner. Unfortunately, it didn't solve my dilemma. It became worse. For every time I skip meals, I tend to eat a lot later. The more I starve myself, the more I crave for more food. It was devastating.

I decided to try fruit diet. At least, I can now use our blender for a good cause. My husband liked what I prepared so far. It's a good thing that we live in an area that has a weekend bazaar of fresh farm products. I can stock up fresh fruits and vegetables.

I can say that fruit diet is perfect for me. I get to drink lots of water and increase my intake of fluids.

Do you like wearing slacks? How about dark green slacks for a dress down look? I'm sure you'll like it by inspiration as Taylor Swift cheerfully displayed her fashion credentials by wearing a gorgeous attire.

These days, Taylor Swift is busy with her colorful singing career. Obviously, she is excited to take part in another spectacular show dubbed as the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show that many style lovers watch in person or online every year.

Faithfulness in Times of Trials

Who among us hasn't endured a harrowing experience? I am sure there's no one.

We are not excused with any of life's negative side, even if we know we're children of a very powerful Being. In times of trials, we have different reactions. Some people start blaming for their misfortunes. I've done blaming others for my own challenges. Others think it's better to commit suicide as an easy escape route. All of these reactions are not good. So how should we deal with misfortunes?


Faith is one way. It's faith that's more practical than taking negative recourse. I am not saying that it's an easy choice. It's not. Since faith, in simple terms, is believing on something unseen but is true, it takes a courageous soul to hold on to it.

During my scripture study, I learned that adversity is part of His plan for our testing and growth during mortality. I know that this is true. As a latter-day saint blogger, I'll stand firmly that He's here to help us go through life's journey.

It's true. We live in a perilous time. Many natural disasters visit our land. For we know that only Him understood all that has happened, and that He had endured many adversities while on earth, we have to believe that everything will be alright.

I am deeply inspired with Esther in ancient time, who had enjoyed divine aid for one particular moment. By fasting and prayer to overcome trials, she receive what she wanted at that time. She has found purpose in her life, when her cousin Mordecai asked her,"Who knoweth whether thou art come to the Kingdom for such a time as this?"

How to Wear Stylish Rings

We prefer style trends that have serious staying power in the world of fashion. Our purpose is to secure different ways to show off our personal style. In the world of accessories, wearing a ring is so easy. However, there are times that we fail to showcase the most amazing like. Why is that so? How can we do it properly?

It's not a problem, by the way. We just have to learn the tricks of wearing stylish rings without looking like a trying hard style protege.

If you're a fast learner, the following tips are easy to apply. I became inspired with Harper's Bazaar ideas on accessorizing, especially with the following photo.

 

1. Find your size. Check websites that have a list of ring sizes. Try it out. Make sure you're comfortable with your choice of accessory.

2. Take time to learn the differences of ring designs. There are different types of rings such as cocktail rings, bands, stackable pieces, wedding rings, precious jewel rings and semi-precious jewel rings. Each ring has a purpose. If you're preparing for a formal occasion, your choices are statement rings, bands, stackable rings and precious jewel rings. For casual wear, opt for bands and semi-precious rings.

3. Learn to mix and match accessories. Don't just wear rings for casual look. Learn to match it with your other accessories. To highlight your clothing pieces, make sure it has stones with the same colors of your clothes.

4. Be a risk-taker. You can break these rules. As long as you're comfortable with your attire, wear a ring of your own choice. After all, you know the basics. Avoid over-the-top accessories and ultra dramatic style. That's it.

By the way, don't purchase cheap mood rings for serious styling sessions. They turn your finger green. Purchase rings that you can wear more than once. They're useful for unannounced gatherings. In taking care of your items, prepare a clean and spacious organizer.

Buying Shoes with Edgy Touch like Primadonna Pieces

I love shopping. Who doesn't like checking chic fashion items nowadays? However, I don't just shop. I always have a plan for my wardrobe. I keep a list of what I need.

Recently, I became interested with edgy footwear. It started when I bought a pair of red shoes from Primadonna. I really like the design. It's really comfortable to wear and easy to match with my outfits. The heeled shoes are lightweight and easy to wear. By wearing it, I have an illusion of height. The pair is very elegant.


In shopping for edgy and unique footwear, I check first some photos online. In that way, I'll find inspiring pieces to use with my outfit plan.

Do you like unique shoes?

Loving Fashion the Denim Way

It's not difficult to wear off duty outfits. I am referring to simple pants and shirt combination, accentuated with chunky accessories. Of course, denim pants are popular for a dress down look. These days, chic street fashion lovers wear something simple out of classy items. It's not really showing off expensive items. The clothes you recently bought from thrift stores will do.



Personally, I love wearing denim pants because it goes well with different designs of blouses and shirts. However, I prefer to team it with light-hued top and heeled footwear. It adds elegance and style to the outfit. I am not too tall so wearing heels is important for me, especially when I wear pants.


Since you're wearing simple clothes to show off denim love, don't hesitate to amp up the look with elaborately designed jewelries. There are many accessories that will match with denim. If your blouse has deep neck design, or the neckline is low, wear chunky necklaces that will fill the neckline area. 

Lastly, experiment with skinny jeans once in a while. It's an interesting trend nowadays. To have a balanced look, wear loose top and chic accessories.

How to Wear Neon Colored Outfits

Neon colors for clothing pieces and accessories are popular nowadays. Let's take a look on how to show off neon-colored outfits.



Many style experts believe that fashion is the things you buy while style is the things you do out of it. There are people who support the mantra that fashion fades and style is eternal. For years, we support the latest fashion trends with aplomb by wearing newly discovered clothing designs. Before the popularity of the Internet, we didn't know that paper can be made an outfit. Now that we're in the golden age of technology, everything is possible.



Many years ago, wearing outfits with different vibrant colors is a disobedience to fashion memos to keep it simple. These days, color blocking is new style development that's really amazing.

How to wear neon colored outfits? 

Don't fret. It isn't challenging. To have a better idea, start with color blocking schemes that many fashion bloggers rave about. You can pair a blue-hued blouse with bold read skirt. Don't forget to wear understated accessories to avoid over-dramatic and annoying look.


Another way of wearing neon colored outfits is to stick with the basics. In other words, choose a dress with triple matching colors and pair it with black pumps. For dress down style, accentuate your denim pants with colorful blouse and dark-hued footwear.

I like bright and happy colors.During stressful days, I wear something read and orange. I don't like open-toe shoes but I use a pair of the same kind to highlight my color blocking ensembles.

Have you tried color blocking?

The Benefits of Buying Local Products Directly from the Farmers

Before I started preparing this post, I thought of remembering the days when I tried farming. I know how to plant sweet potatoes and other edible plants. It was fun to gather eggs and collect fruits in the farm.

When I was a kid, I have no idea that many people don't buy farm products directly from the farmers. When I started working in the metro, things changed. I no longer have access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Now that I have another chance to be in the countryside again, I'll share some benefits of buying local products.



Local farmers help build a rural community. If local farmers are doing their job well, rural communities will continuously develop these days. Since local farming provides jobs to many people, everybody will benefit in the community. In that sense, farmers will no longer sell their lands for commercial development. Simply put, farmers help build strong local economy.

We can buy fresher farm products. Obviously, farm products are fresher and better in taste and quality. These products are shipped within 24 hours upon harvest so the freshness and quality is maintained. Usually, fresh fruits and vegetables are sweet and flavorful.



Consumption of local products helps to protect genetic diversity. When organic products became popular, many people buy directly from farmers. The common merchants nowadays usually sell products with longer shelf life, therefore sacrificing taste and freshness. Aside from that, some produce have grown to meet commercial standards that will will result to increase of genetic diversity.

Buying from local farmers helps to protect our environment. The shipping process is shorter compared to those sold with middlemen. It is one way to save energy and avoid waste. In buying directly from farmers, fresh fruits and vegetables are directly available to buyers. Usually, farmers offer their produce during weekends to ensure freshness and quality.

It is convenient and fun. Since buying in farmers' market is fun and convenient, many people love doing it. Sometimes they're enamored with many farmers selling snacks made of fresh fruits and vegetables. Some poultry products are already prepared as ready-to-eat items that makes shopping fun.

Have you tried visiting a farmer's market area? It's one of my hobbies lately. It's my way of supporting local farmers.

It's more fun in the Philippines. I agree with this tagline. It's obvious that travel became a major activity of many people nowadays. So when I had a chance to revive my travel writing gigs, I thought of writing about our latest finds in Dipolog City.



My husband prodded me to visit some affordable snack houses in the city. He wants to eat halo-halo and siomai for a change. Our regular Saturday visit at bazaars is monotonous. One afternoon, we had a wonderful dining experience at a snack house located near the Boulevard.

For P90, we enjoyed two orders of halo-halo and siomai. I remember my first visit in this place as a blogger. The team also visited the snack houses at that time. The particular dining place that we visited now has changed. It became a chic dining area for their customers. It's also located near the beach. Imagine the comfort and fun we had.

The Camouflage Effect

Some people comment that camouflage is peaking in the fashion world. It became an overnight sensation among style enthusiasts. Even though it was already popular before the fashion revolution in the Internet, its recent fame is exceptional. People are beginning to use it in different occasions.

There are some points that make camouflage a style staple nowadays. The print is inherently a tool for military activities. But many fashion mavens found its usefulness in the world of fashion. It became an important ornament for showcasing styles such as athletic wear, sequin sweaters, trenches, luxe fur outfit and even in fitness activities.


Obviously, girls are using camouflage as best fashion pieces for night outs with their friends. It's easy to style with a mini skirt, dresses and even dress-down outfits.Since it is an edgy piece for every style enthusiast, many people use it to show off completely neutral look.

There's a warning, though. Try to show off a camouflage in a relaxed way. For example, use gorgeous accessories to keep a camouflage from being too serious. For women, a ladylike look maybe achieved by adding a pop of color in your outfit or using a fabulous necklace. Don't forget to have a trendy makeup and chic nail paint for a polished beauty style.

Lastly, guys can also use camouflage in showcasing a remarkable look. It's all about the camouflage sneaker with dark denim, or a jacket or hoodie over more tailored trousers.

Fashion Pieces with Long Shelf Life

We know that our love for fashion won't fade easily. Being able to put up an amazing ensemble is always thrilling and interesting. However, there are times that we fail to keep fashion pieces with long shelf life. It's because we keep on searching for new trends and those items that are seasonal.

Here are fashion items that have long shelf life.

Little black dress. Coco Chanel believes that a little black dress is not seasonal. It is a classic attire that is useful for fashion lovers. If you're prepared for style emergencies, a little black dress is in your closet. For instance, you're invited to a cocktail party or a meeting-cum-party event in the workplace, it's the best choice as an attire.



Denim pants. Women love to wear denim pants. It's a classic clothing piece that is easy to wear and style. It's perfect for busy days and dress-down moments. It doesn't hurt if you pair it with heeled sandals to have a sophisticated yet effortless look.

Black maxi skirt. In your closet, keep a black maxi dress. This is useful for unplanned girl's night out. The fashion item can also be used to attend church meetings by pairing it with a colorful blouse and matching wedges. Choose a design that will create an illusion of great shape and body contour. There are maxi skirts that will give you a look with elongated and perfectly trimmed legs.

White t-shirt. Of course, white t-shirts are classic pieces. They're useful every time you're in the mood for shopping or visiting a friend. It's easy to style and comfortable to wear. It goes well with pants and blazers.

Black boots. For rainy days or not, boots are fabulous style pieces. They're perfect for mini dresses, casual wear and other suitable outfits. The footwear items, especially flat ones, are also perfect for walking. Think of Kate Moss's video of "These Boots are Made for Walking." Isn't it gorgeous?

Slacks or trousers. For those who are attending job interviews, slacks or trousers are very useful. Keep a perfectly designed trouser in your closet for such purpose. It can easily transform you from a style enthusiast to a corporate chic in an instant when paired with matching blouse and shoes. By the way, tailored trousers are the best pieces.

White or black blazer. These item is perfect for covering fabulous sleeveless t-shirts and blouses. They're style staple nowadays. For modest fashion clothing, it's the favorite style item to pull off a minimalist look.

Nude Pumps. We know that nude pumps are useful to have a glamorous look. Some sky-high nude heels are perfect for mini-dresses, chic frocks and other modish outfits.

Do you know other clothing items that have shelf life?

Hotkiss Blue Dress

I fell in love with dresses when I started wearing modest clothing pieces. However, I am more enamored with Hotkiss dresses nowadays. I have a blue dress of the same brand. Even though it is not knee-length, I managed to wear it while strolling in the beach.



To create a simple look, I used a maroon-hued blazer. I don't like wearing heels at that time, so I opted for yellow flats from Zalora. To complete the outfit, I carried a maroon-colored SM Accessories small bag.

The dress is too short for me, so I'll no longer wear it next time. I'll just keep is as a remembrance after shopping some Hotkiss items.
