He found a really chic sweater and he immediately told me to buy it. This piece is usually mentioned in my YouTube Channel, Karen Lopez Vlog, so some of you may be familiar with this.

You'll probably nodding your head right now.

I've experienced a lot of people who are always trying to get ahead of others by hurting their fellows. They don't want your promotion. They're threatened of your success, even if it's just a small one. They're not contented of what they have and tend to feel envious of you. They will say side comments in front of you that they thought you won't hear it. But you did.

Since haters gonna hate, all you really need is to be prepared for their next attack. At least now, you're fully aware that they're trying to be nice to you but actually fail in hiding their facial expressions. Their eyes say it all. Right?

Here are the top three ways to handle haters without losing your dignity. Don't get your hands dirty because of these people. They're not worth your time.

1. Don't react directly to any attack.

Be subtle. Wait for that perfect moment to give a deafening reply that will make your opponent so ashamed to even say a word or raise an eyebrow.

2. Delay your anger. 

You can better think of strategies to defeat your opponents if you have plenty of time to find the right move. It will also help you look dignified, something that your enemy will be afraid of.

3. Be humble.

You're going to use this trick wisely, though. Sometimes people will trample on your rights because you're too lenient on them.

I've given you simple ways to stay dignified in front of pretentious, jealous and sarcastic individuals. Make sure to learn from your experiences and be wise in dealing with other people. Take care!

How to Maintain Your Upwork Profile in 2018

I've started working through Upwork since 2012 and a lot of things changed since then. I just joined the platform to prepare for freelancing in the future [which is right now] and it really helped me to be patient about anything freelance. Here are a few things that you should remember in maintaining your Upwork profile this 2018.

1. Always find work and get paid to avoid your profile to become private that will not allow potential employers to find you via search.

This is basically a new rule for me and I never heard anyone talking about this one. I just discovered this when my profile was turned to private by Upwork after not having income for more than three weeks, I think, and it was really a huge change on my freelancing activity. So now I learned to have at least 2-3 clients every week.

2. Check the background of the employer first before starting to sending an application letter or submitting a proposal. You can do so by checking the reviews about the potential client and read all the comments. In that way, you'll have an idea on what type of client you'll be dealing with in the future.

3. Maybe, you can start applying work of clients that have already invested a lot at Upwork. In that way, you can avoid those who can't pay or those who have no plans of paying you in the first place.

4. Be mindful of your reviews. I usually provide positive reviews for clients who really gave me a smooth, meaningful and profitable working experience. They usually provide remarkable rating in return.

In closing, make sure to develop a good working relationship with your clients. Obviously, your rating or job success will go down if some clients will give you low rating.

Happy freelancing! 💓

Insightful Points that a Close Friend Told Me about Online Dating and Relationships

The meaning of love is not confined to a specific definition. In every corner of the world, there's a way to express this feeling. Even if you're from a foreign country, you can share your love and devotion to another person. In the same way, your object of affection can easily share his or her feelings with you. Thanks to the existence of the Internet. Indeed, love makes the world go round.

My close friend, Jean, who lives in the neighborhood told me beautiful things about her marriage to a foreigner. It also includes the things she has to do patiently in order to find the love of her life. With that, it's obvious that she's one of those who believe in finding true love through a dating site, something that other people don't want to do. At present, she's happily married to an American businessman that she met online in 2010.

We often heard about people who chose to marry someone from a different country with different culture and background. For Jean, this is a happy choice for her. Here are the insightful things that she mentioned about finding true love through an online dating site nowadays.

Try to Be Friendly Online

Not all people you meet online are bad. You should give them a chance. By being friends with a lot of people through the Internet, you'll get a chance to know them better. "Don't limit yourself with people from within the country," says Jean. She believed that there are loving, kind and responsible foreigners who are seeking for true love. The reason you'll need to get to know a lot of people is to avoid meeting bad guys online.

Give Yourself Enough Time

"There's no need to hurry," warns Jean. She has friends who followed her own way of finding love and some of them aren't successful for the reason of not taking time wisely. If you think someone is not worth your attention, take time to find another. There will always be opportunities to find the right person. 

Read Success Stories Shared by Others

Obviously, you'll need inspiration in what you chose to do through the Internet. In order to get enlightened, read true stories of other women who found true love online. Personally, I have a lot of friends who are already living happily in other countries with their husbands. It's a sign that there's nothing wrong to give online dating a chance.

The traditional way of dating is still very interesting these days. However, it's also worth your time and attention to meet people from different countries as prospects for a happy relationship. You just have to choose the best one that will love you with all his or her heart.

Lastly, Jean told me that she has to chat with a lot of friends to find the perfect one. After all, dating is one way to be familiar with people and get to know them. She's really sure that the one she married five years ago is the right one for her. Until now, they're still happily married.

1. Ever Belina Matic Lipstick

2. Convertible Gingham Jacket

The jacket is owned by my husband, he really loves it. But for this video and for other opportunities to wear this one, I've borrowed the item. It's blue and gingham so I can wear this from day to night.

3. Ice Watch

My friend, Aisie, gave this watch to me. She also gave one to our friend - so it's one for me and for Iris. The color is pink, sort of Lavender, really, and I really love it.

4. Hairfix Keratin Straight Leave On Spray

I usually use this product when I'm in a hurry because there's no need to rinse. It's easy to use and I can even bring it when I travel. This one can be bought at Watson's and it's really helpful to keep my hair straight and shiny every time I use it.

5. Avon True Color, SuperExtend Lengthening Mascara

This is the mascara that I use since last week. It's really nice, waterproof, so I can use this without smudging my makeup.

From Lonely to Happy, How My Friend Rose Found The Love of Her Life

"There are people who didn't support me with this, but I'm truly happy. They can't question me on my decision," said Rose.  We had a heart-warming conversation last month about her newfound life. She is one of those ladies who have been waiting for a happy marriage through an online dating portal such as Match Me Happy. Luckily, Rose didn't wait for too long. In just one year, she met someone online and he's from another country. Her decision to follow her heart leads her to happiness. After a year of knowing each other through online platforms, they got married in a simple yet happy ceremony.

Rose and I haven't seen each other for two years due to work schedule. She was our household worker for two years. During her free time, she would chat with someone online hoping to know him better. "He isn't my first choice. I had been thinking about someone younger than him. But John is different. He's persistent," smiled Rose as she relayed to me about the early days of their courtship online. With the popularity of a certain free dating site or other online portals, it would be easy for Rose to find the love of her life. Obviously, finding love online made her happy even if other people are against of it.

How would you know if he's the one when he's far away? Is he trustworthy? These are the usual questions that Rose should deal with every time her friends and relatives ask her about online dating. But her reply comes from her heart, she will trust her decision no matter what.

Image | Roven Images

Rose gave me three ways to believe on her dreams despite the challenges around her. She's been dreaming to marry a person who has a different nationality and someone who believes in her.

Listen To Your Intuition Even If Others Would Tell You Otherwise

The traditional way of finding true love is meeting people within your community. In the case of Rose, she couldn't find someone in the country to love her based on trust and acceptance. There are always doubts, judgments and even negative thinking. She's hoping to find elsewhere that would change her perspective on love and relationships. No wonder she relied on online dating for a year to eventually settle down with someone from another country. It proved to be her destiny. Even if other people aren't supportive on her choice, she went on happily.

Have a Positive Mind While Going Through the Dating Process

Although it isn't easy at first, Rose continuously chats with her prospects online. Later on, she met John who is willing to marry her and even live with her in the country. She doesn't have to go abroad abruptly for their relationship to grow and prosper. They can start a new life here. Isn't it amazing? She has a positive mind all along.

Talk to Other People Who Are Successful with Online Dating

One of the reasons she agreed to marry John is the support of her newfound friend who also married a foreigner. The guidance of her friend is helpful in preparing for a married life with someone of different nationality, background and culture. So it's really important to talk to someone who has the same experience with you.

Rose and her husband John are happily waiting for their first child. She promised to let me know her whereabouts soon. That made me excited to know more about her love story out of online dating.

Last year, I wrote an article about the Top Five Reasons to Start a YouTube Channel, and a lot of people are actually reading it. I never thought that this post would be relevant at that time, because there are only a few creators here. But I'll view it in an international sense, many creative people want to start a YouTube Channel, or improve their own, and others are already reaping the rewards of their hard work.

Today, let me share with you my own journey.

I didn't focus in growing my YouTube Channel since I'm busy building my other blog, Where Is Stylish Karen, but when received a lot of emails regarding my post last year about the topic, everything changed.

To update my work flow, I checked my channel and found out that I already have a lot of views that's worthy of my attention. So I started to create more videos to focus on my channel. However, I didn't dive right away to do the job. I researched a lot to implement major improvements.

Here are 5 things I learned so far.

1. Titles

The first few words of your title must be your keyword and use symbols when necessary. In the example video posted above, my keyword is "thrift shopping under 500" and I used the symbols
[ and ) to improve the look and feel of my title. Strategically, you can use other symbols too, such as +, " and more. True enough, this video can be seen in recommended videos along with those old videos that are already popular. The goal is to get a share of their views.

2. Thumbnails

If you will check my thumbnail, it is better compared to my past video thumbnails. The background is white, I incorporated colors opposite to YouTube colors and used huge font size. It looks better now.

3. Lighting, Audio and Video Quality

I only use inexpensive camera for filming. However, I bought a better lighting equipment - it isn't enough but at least I can start creating better videos now.

4. Consistency

To be consistent, it is essential to post at least 1 video every week. The focus is really quality that will enhance viewer experience.

5. Comments, Likes, and Shares for Recommendation

Share your video in other platforms such as Instagram bio, Twitter, blogs and more in order to get more views, likes and shares. If YouTube will notice the signals indicating that you have likes, shares and comments, they'll rank your videos higher.

These things are really essential because a lot of successful YouTubers discuss all of the items I've mentioned earlier.

As for me, I want to take massive action right away: I followed their advice and discovered huge improvement of my work. And I also read this extensive guide about How to Start a Vlog: The Definitve Guide (2018). Definitely, you can learn valuable ideas from this one.

Take care!

Using Human Lace Front Wigs To Showcase a New and Stylish Look

What Are Human Lace Front Wigs?

The wig renaissance is here! Wigs are everywhere in the last few years and their popularity shows no signs of abating. Wigs are becoming commonplace for people around the world and for all sorts of events and occasions--ranging from celebrities walking the red carpet to models on their all-expenses-paid vacations, all the way to everyday people going about their daily errands, taking trips to the beach, or enjoying the night life scene with their friends.

Of all the wigs being sold today, human lace front wigs are definitely the most popular. Human hair wigs aren’t exactly new, but the human lace front wigs that have taken the world by storm are leaps and bounds above what wigs used to be years ago. But what are human lace front wigs, anyway? Let’s take a closer look at what lace front wigs are in order to better understand them.

The Features of a Lace Front Wig

Lace front wigs have a very unique and very defining feature: They have an invisible hairline thanks to the use of lace netting in the front of the wig which allows the person wearing the wig to blend it in with their natural hairline. The resulting effect is that the wig appears to actually be coming out of the person’s scalp, rather than having a very obvious and thick fake hairline, which you can see in wigs that don’t have a lace front.Some lace front wigs have netting only towards the front of the piece, while others have more extensive lace that allows for greater control over your wig style.

Why People Love Lace Front Wigs

Lace front wigs don’t have to be made with human hair, as many are made with artificial fibers. However, human hair wigs are definitely the best choice when you want your wig to look as real as possible. And let’s be frank: that is one of the reason why these types of wigs are so popular. People want their wigs to look as real as possible, and lace fronts are able to fulfill that desire.

Another reason why lace front wigs are so popular is that they allow for a greater number of styles when compared to wigs without a lace front. Lace front wigs do not require bangs or other types of front parts to hide the falseness of the hairline. You can put your hair up in a ponytail with lace fronts, or create a dramatic side part--you can do just about any normal hairstyle with a lace front, as long as you are careful to lay down your edges and cover them up if necessary.

Where to Find Them

There are many different ways to purchase human lace front wigs in today’s market. The most popular way is through online websites, which can stock hundreds of different lace front wigs at various price points and in many different styles. Your best bet is to find a shop--online or otherwise--that specializes in human hair wigs with lace fronts.

MEACO Hotel in Dipolog City

Meaco Hotel in Dipolog City is located near my favorite restaurants and shopping areas downtown. No wonder I always want to stay there when I have to write for my novel and take a rest for the weekend. In this post, let me share with you some photos of the hotel.

This is the hotel facade - the entrance that you can see just beside Novo Jeans. It is a few blocks away from the Sunset Boulevard so you would surely love this place if you want to explore the city.

This is a photo of my room. For only P 900.00, I had a chance to stay here for 24 hours. The room is so spacious and well-designed for guests. From here, I can see the city streets and the pathway to my favorite barbecue house.

This is the hotel lobby. This is located at the second floor. It is also spacious, perfect for eating snacks and taking notes. 

I was able to stay in the hotel twice. The second one isn't good because I have to call a hotel staff every time I open the door. The door knob is defective. However, the employees are helpful and kind so I still had a comfortable visit the second time around.

About My Trip

I tried to check their website but it is no longer available. If you really need an affordable place to stay in the city, you can go directly to the hotel and choose your room for your accommodation.

Review and Rating

Since I just want to have an overnight stay in the hotel, I chose the most affordable room and the rate is only P500.00. The room is small and little bit old. Meaning, the place is not well-maintained. It wasn't really clean-looking, maybe because the building looks really old. However, it is still complete with basic knickknacks  such as bed, television, table and comfort room. At around 2 AM, I experienced a scary thing since I felt like a lot of unseen beings are sleeping on my feet. I told them to leave me alone so that I can sleep peacefully and prayed for protection from evil spirits. If I'm going to rate this place, I'll give 3.5/5 stars.

Scoop in Dipolog City for Ice Cream

We know that eating ice cream is one of the most popular ways to combat stress nowadays. It has different flavors that will give you the sweetness that you need. No wonder it is always part of the menu whenever you'll see a well-designed food house.

Earlier this month, I had a chance to drop by Scoop in Dipolog City to have brunch. I've decided to order Mango Ice Cream and Beef Steak with rice. 

You'll love the simplicity of the place and their delicious offerings. The taste of their Beef Steak is good. It's one of my favorite dishes so I made sure I ordered it right away. Aside from that, the Mango Ice Cream is really delectable.

The restaurant is located beside Altissimo Cafe so it is very accessible. Since the price is so affordable, even students can afford dining at this place.

New Beginning and New Chapter For Life

There are times that I wonder what made me go through these days despite the challenges that I encounter every day. Maybe, just maybe, I did believe that one day everything will be alright as long as I remain valiant in this mortal life.

Truly, I wasn't able to blog for a long time. I did a quick personal evaluation and slowly planned for the next chapter of my life. I did a list of all things that really matter to me. I look back and discarded all the things that will not be helpful towards achieving what I really want in life.

If you're going through the same thing, just carry on. Take an inspiration from this post. You may rest for a little while, but don't give up. I really love blogging that I'll do everything to find the inspiration that I needed to keep going.

Last month, we has a successful activity with the young women for their New Beginning. I can relate it with my life - I need to embrace the new chapter ahead of me. There's no way to back out. I just chose to walk in the right path, serve Him with all my heart, might, mind and strength and at the same time working for the things that I really aspire for.

The path that I chose isn't the ordinary, but I know it is close to my heart.

Lastly, I'll "stand for truth and righteousness" all the time even if it's not easy. After all, there is always opposition in life. Challenges lie ahead. And it takes a kind heart and focused mind to be a victor.

Hongkong Experienced Haute Couture on The Ocean With Jessica Minh Anh at Costa Neoromantica Sundeck

Jessica Minh Anh rose to fame after phenomenally turning England’s iconic London’s Tower Bridge, French pride the Eiffel Tower, and America’s new symbol of hope and freedom One World Trade Center into a catwalk.

For so many years, I've been following my favorite style lovers across the globe. Since there are a lot of people who are so passionate about fashion, it is not difficult to do so. One of my favorite fashion icon is Jessica Minh Anh. Her story is really inspiring, thrilling and electrifying knowing well-produced fashion shows she has showcased in popular parts of the world.

At 12:30pm yesterday, supermodel Jessica Minh Anh officially added Hong Kong into her famous catwalk series at the world’s most iconic venues. Featuring the city’s picturesque skyline, J Winter Fashion Show 2018 premiered 6 haute couture and pret-a-couture collections from Europe, Asia, South America, and America on the sky-high sundeck of Costa neoRomantica cruise ship. More than perfectly marrying fashion with the old and new Hong Kong, Jessica successfully celebrated the rise of a new generation of female creators.

Against the cinematic backdrop, Jessica Minh Anh appeared as a vision in an impressive royal red dress with gold embroidered geometric symbols. Reflecting sunlight in her every move, her elegance was dramatized by flowy chiffon and silk. Jessica’s iconic look was complimented by a unique hair structure resembling a multiple-sail boat. Following the exotic beauty was a stunning model line-up, all dressed in Ani Alvarez Calderon’s latest designs. The Peruvian artist used decorative border, multi-coloured cords, fringes made of textiles, and velvet ribbons to emulate Inca Empire and the spiritual world. Pakistani representative Syeda Amera returned to Jessica Minh Anh’s catwalk with structured jackets, flared pants, and fridge beaded dresses. Her expressive collection mixed gold embellishments with Swarovski crystals and ruby jewels against a deep colour palette of sunset red, forest green, and royal blue.

I'm a fan of Jessica's beautiful clothes that are considered high fashion and the peerless way of showcasing her way of promoting remarkable places.

Adding femininity to the grand showcase, American designer Mimi Tran introduced a ravishing haute couture collection that mirrored endless variations of modern beauty. From immaculate detailing, texture, and luminosity, to dimensional patterns with depth, the designs portray majesty and complexity of an independent woman. Staying true to the brand’s aesthetic, Mimi featured artisanal hand beading and utilize the colour palette to full effervescent effect.

A master at portraying the perfect silhouette, Patricia Nascimento’s new collection was a mix of sensuality and boldness. Distinctive cuts, strategic transparency, and embellished crystals on fine fabrics defined her signature looks. After describing Jessica Minh Anh as “a visionary who can change the world” on the historic Hoover Dam catwalk, the Brazilian talent has certainly inserted another level of refinement onto her powerful and exceptional designs. The multi-colour mermaid collection exuded individuality and richness.

Next, Monaco-based label Nordic Angels presented a classic and timeless collection with clean cuts, avant-garde silhouettes, and contemporary patterns that would prevail through generations. Attaining an impeccable fit, the designs included red roses embroiled on transparent fabrics, structured dresses and suits with deep necklines, and a red-carpet touch.

Closing the show with ultimate glamour, Indonesian powerhouse XIAOFEN COUTURE created a fairy-tale moment with mostly soft colours, fine materials, big bows, and trained dresses. Advanced craftsmanship and great attention to details were seen in elaborate gowns, which were structured yet artistically dreamy. Saving the best for last, the finale blue-violet dress, which embodied Jessica Minh Anh’s beauty and sophistication, is a quintessential example of advanced beadwork, original patterns, and intricacy. Symbolizing an East-meet-West enchanting presence, the supermodel ended the show with unattainable desire and supremacy.

The high-profile J Winter Fashion Show 2018 welcomed guests on board of the luxurious Costa neoRomantica cruise ship with a red-carpet entrance and a VIP after-party with Italian delicacy and live music. Hong Kong’s finest Make Up For Ever, Daz Salon, Buccellati, Nirav Modi, Cristina Sabatini, Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, Pure Group, Ovolo Group, HK Branding, Camlux Hotel, Expo King, GOGOVAN, Roytal Tailor, and EAST Hong Kong were among the show supporters.

Of all the clothes donned at the fashion show, my favorite is the blue-violet dress that was showcased in the runway during the finale. It was intricate, unique and regal-looking and it really highlighted Jessica's beauty.

With an incredible track record of 3 iconic catwalks per year in 3 continents, Jessica Minh Anh redefined the unstoppable energy and creativity of a new generation of leaders. In her own words, Jessica described her motivation and hard work as “the air I breath, the only road I see, my way of life”. With her history-making achievements at national symbols from the Eiffel Tower, London’s Tower Bridge to Hoover Dam and Gemasolar plant, it’s no doubt Jessica is an asset not only to the fashion industry, but many others. As she continues to expand her multi-faceted career and meet with country ambassadors, ministers, and CEOs of multinational corporation, one may wonder where she will head to next?

I've been obsessed with unique hairstyles lately, especially after checking my Instagram account. I've checked gorgeous hairstyles while checking the feeds of fellow bloggers. Aside from that, I researched freetress to know more about it and I found fabulous hairstyle as inspiration.

Here are my favorite tresses styling. Let me know in the comments section your thoughts about these chic hairstyles.

Cocoa Curl

This is really interesting! The color is dark and attractive. I love purple so it explains why this is my first choice. I had a similar hairstyle back then and I really love it even if the curls are not so prominent like this one. The style is perfect for those who want to try bolder colors. 

Pin Twist Braid

Another unique hairstyle is the Pin Twist Braid. This is not too long and the color is subtle pink or red. I can wear this with a little black dress or even a white maxi dress. I love the complexity of the wig.

2x Braid

If you want a longer and colorful hairstyle, this is highly recommended. The color looks amazing and the cut is so chic. I'm attracted with the fine braids here.

These hairstyles are very enticing, especially if I want to look different sometimes. As inspiration, freetress gave me ideas to wear wig in style and to amp up my #beauty game.

Weekend Staycation at Travelbee Heritage Inn in Dapitan City

Are you planning to visit Dapitan City? If so, you're probably wondering where to stay in the city. Let me share with you one place that will amaze you while on the road.

There's no need to spend a lot of money just to find a perfect place to stay in Dapitan City. You can stay in a budget hotel, an inn that is so accessible for you.

In my new blog, I featured an amazing inn for backpackers who visit Dapitan City. It's my third time to visit the place.

Travelbee Heritage Inn is one of the most recommended accommodations in the said place. I've posted a video on my YouTube Channel about this one.

The inn is very affordable. If you just want a place to stay for the night, you can choose the Economy Hive for only P600.00. However, the room has no television. If you want a better room, upgrade to the Standard Hive that is only P680.00. You can also choose the bigger room for only P1,280.00. They've recently updated the rate so just expect for a little additional fee once you're in the hotel.

Travelbee Heritage Inn is so clean and peaceful. I was able to sleep very well during my stay there. I'll definitely go back there when I want to visit the twin city of Dipolog.

Next, switch hair over and rough-work upside lower together with your hair dryer. When your hair will get to become more moist than wet, stand support and grab your round brush.

Rollers, whether they're hot rollers or Velcro, do wonders with regards to adding volume for your hair. When your locks are totally dry, start taking parts of hair and moving them to your rollers. I would recommend using a minimum of one-inch rollers (the larger the rollers the greater your hair!). Leave the rollers set for about ten minutes. We usually leave rollers all the while we all do our makeup, and take away them when finished.

Dirty hair isn't always bad. Second day hair weave has a tendency to style simpler and hold curl (or volume) better still than clean hair. The secret to adding volume to second day locks are dry shampoo. Besides dry shampoo hide any undesirable oil but additionally helps you to raise your roots back to voluminous perfection.
