My ZALORA Shopping Experience Review

This is the first time I shopped online for my own clothes and accessories. At first, I was hesitant to continue with my order thinking that those tops may look good at the model but not with me. 

It's good that the images of the clothes zoomed in for crucial details where I can convince myself that it was the perfect choice.

The product details and description with measurement guide really helped me have the right fit! By the way, I mostly relied on model's body measurement as follows:
  • Chest: 34 Waist: 25 Hips: 36
  • Size of model's garment: S
So, I am positive to look this pretty wearing these tops (whatttt?!):

Vaness Butterfly Sleeves Lace Top

This one's perfect for a more creative casual look:
Nancy Two-Tone Blouse

I also browsed at the Jewelry collection and found this bib necklace set that features a mixture of shimmery faux stones embellished over a cut-out plate centerpiece and complemented with gorgeous matching stone earrings.

Facted Faux Stone Bib Necklace Set
I added these items in my cart and with just a few clicks, voila! The items was delivered after 2 days.

I love ZALORA's classy and neat  packaging. 

I appreciate the text messages they sent to keep me updated with my order status. First message received was to inform that they received my order, 2nd says that my items are packed already, and the last confirming the delivery within the day and saying 'thank you for shopping'.

I must say that they provide Customer Care at its finest.

The items comes with a Return Slip incase I have reasons to request for exchange or refund. How nice di ba?

Now, I can say that the overall shopping experience with Zalora deserves  a five stars rating for an outstanding Customer Service alongside with fashionable selections of shoes, clothing and accessories.

Adorable Kids' Dresses at ZALORA Marketplace

"They may not really be made of sugar and spice and everything nice, but little girls will surely give you thousands of reason to smile." 

My little girl!

As a mother to a toddler girl, cute dresses and other girly stuff  always excites me. Those adorable accessories, shoes, laces, cheery prints, ruffles, simple to elegant dresses, unique tops and skirts, and having a wide selection and choices for dressing up makes some of the reasons why I love having a girl.

A recent buy is a mother-daughter terno set of summer dresses from a tiangge at the mall. I choose fashionable and fab, but budget friendly items only.

I contain myself of not buying branded items at regular price. Instead, I choose to wait until the price marked down and avail of selected SALE items to enjoy quality finds with huge savings.

Also, I found a lot of cute tops for baby girls on Zalora Marketplace as well as girls accessories, shoes, tutu skirts, dresses and other fashionable clothing for my mini me.

Good thing, I can enjoy a 15% discount of any items upon check out. They offer fashionable pieces with the extensive selection of kids' products.

Here's my personal choice in my wishlist that hopefully will be added on my empty cart:

BAILEY Peplum Swimsuit
SUMMER Tiered-Backless Top
Little Velvet Dress
POLKA-DOTTED Dress in Beige
Denim TROPICAL Dress
ZALORA offers comfortable and good quality dresses at the best prices, and having the convenience shopping in the comfort of our homes is a big plus!

As for me, I have gained trust and confidence shopping online as it satisfies my need for convenience and speed. Online discount offers becomes a welcome opportunity for me to save time and money. In fact, I got my latest online purchase at 60% OFF, a Big Children's wooden dollhouse for my little girl.

I came to realized just now that what makes me really giddy about all these 'daughter stuff' is that it becomes a perfect opportunity for me to relive my childhood memories and meant having a special  mother-daughter connection.

Cheers to more finds and bonding moments to come!

BDO- SM Muntinlupa Contact Number

I worked  before on a shifting schedule on my previous job at the Gaming Industry. I follow a crazy schedule back then; with that, I find it hard to transact on a regular banking hours.

Thanks to BDO, who solved this problem with providing longer banking hours that is conveniently located inside the mall.

Here's the complete details of my nearest branch, BDO SM Tunasan Muntinlupa, for reference:

Banco de Oro BDO SM Supercenter Muntinlupa City, PH


UG/F SM Supercenter Muntinlupa, Brgy. Tunasan, National Road, Muntinlupa City, PH

Contact Nos.: 659-1624 to 25, 659-1627 to 28

Fax: 659-1626

Office Hours: 10:00 - 7:00 PM Mon - Sun

The very reason why they came up as the "Best Emerging Bank" here in the Philippines is because most of us chose BDO so we can bank and shop at the same time. 

As for me, it provides me the convenient of receiving remittances from abroad, my way to receive my paypal balance, and pay the bills.

I only hope for one thing, to have them please provide seats for our convenience when waiting on a long queue.

La Vie Institute: Center for Personal and Professional Growth

Since I no longer work in a corporate setting, last week's event was a chance for me to wear make-up and use my 'bling-bling' (wooot!). Imagine how excited I was to received this kind of invitation so I confirm my attendance right away as it was conveniently located near our place.

Together with my fellow Mommy Bloggers, La Vie Institute allow us to preview one of their Programs: The Modern Woman's Workshop. The event was a half-day's worth of fun activity on Advanced Personal Make-Up Workshop and Fine Dining Etiquette.

The staff were very accommodating and I was overwhelmed by the warm welcome and professional approached. 

Ms. Monica, the Institute's Program Director, shares the story on how she originally plan to put up a preschool, but instead came up focusing with Personal and Professional growth workshops as a way to intensively work on student's character development.

It is undeniably true that due to the rigors of academic preparation, character development is forced to take a lower priority in most classrooms.

With the ever-increasing demands of today's society to be competitive and become 'number one', growing up in this world is now taking a serious toll than ever before.

Children are exposed to increased likelihood of being a victim to bullying or becoming a bully themselves because of this generation's desensitization to violence.

Parents are worried about being able to help foster their child when they have grown up in a totally different social landscape.

Young adults are overwhelmed by the big decisions they face as they transition into the real world and feel unprepared when they face the stiff competition in the job market. 

More and more professionals are disillusioned by the rat race and this cycle ripples into growing numbers of discontented, unhappy and fearful individuals.

It is to address these pressing needs that La Vie Institute was created. The name, directly translated from French to English, means "The Life Institute". The Programs are designed to bring the fruits of TOTAL Personality Development training to let you live the life you imagine for yourself and for your loved ones.

I strongly agree that providing a strong foundation is the key of making a successful individuals. As a mother, it is a tough job to set Character Education and Social Skills at today's Modern Technology.

It is not easy to teach Moral skills at today's world, with the emerging of social networks and trends, even some computer games glorify stealing, fighting, lying, and other forms of unacceptable behavior. So there, we have to innovate and redesign our way of teaching to  handle our child's formative years.

With this, I  totally agree with how this institute was designed to cater the need of working on Character Development and reinventing one's self regardless of age.

As I took part to experienced a bite of "The Modern Woman's Workshop" at a  World Class Facility at La Vie,  I came out looking good and feeling good about myself.

The make-up Studio. Need I say more on how mood lifting the place was?

with our Make-up Mentor, Ms. Mic Salazar

We're all too busy  highlighting our assets!
"Tuwang-tuwa kami sa nose contouring, obvious ba?"

Another reason to be happy, a Makeup Tool kit from #Suesh
Can't get enough of the make-up studio... I need to pose for a 'selfie'
Moving on with second part, The Fine Dining Etiquette with Ms. Vangie, our mentor. We were introduced to Menu Components and Terminologies. Do's and don't were discussed on Dining Etiquette and Table Manners.

A good reminder with what to do with the napkin: "The napkin is used for dabbing the mouth - you should never wipe, but dab!"

Italian Pasta was served courtesy of Mona Lisa Ristorante, as we practice not to cut, but to use a spoon to help twirl the pasta. I was doing good at first... uhmn, well, I really tried.

After the activities, we had a small chat discussing our personal take with Personality Development issues from our past and especially with raising our kids. 

It was such a great time having the opportunity to experience preview lessons from La Vie. Their Programs was uniquely design to cultivate the inner power of a person to shine the brightest. They offer a more holistic approach to personality development with their unique classes.

The following Programs were being offered:
I only had an afternoon with them but I felt inspired already of living a life of purpose and fulfillment. Talked about positivity!

We ended our day with these sweet treats:
