Glamourbox - #BeautiesAndBabies

Unboxing! Unboxing! Unboxing! Do I sound so excited? Because I do. I've known Glamourbox since I started blogging but didn't have the guts to get a box from them (aside that I do not know how things work with them) though I've seen boxes from some bloggers I know. Lucky for me this month that I got to see an instagram post from one of the bloggers I'm following and I'm so thrilled to try the products in the box. Beauties and Babies box is so special since it contains products not just for glam moms but for babies as well. How refreshing that the box isn't just for me, and by that, YES I'm now a mother, a new one and the proudest.

Elegant Women Map Pattern PU Leather Handbag + Tmart Review

Finally, I'm officially back. It's been 4 months since I last posted an update on this blog and I'm missing it badly. It felt like something is missing on me. Good news that I'm back on track. :) Things have somehow changed for that short span of time but for so many beautiful reasons. And that's a long story to tell, on my next post maybe :p
Anywhoo, since I don't have much time to go out yet for shopping or treats for myself, I am thankful that online shopping exists. I really do. It saves more time and effort. Lol! And with so many online shops all over the world, it makes it even more easier for me to buy stuffs I need. Good thing there's Tmart.com too. It has thousands of products to choose at a pretty low price. All in one at Tmart. Plus, a worldwide free shipping. Yes, it is free. We all love it, don't we?
Next to my love for shoes are shoulder bags and handbags and that's what I exactly get from Tmart. Tmart Elegant Women Map Pattern PU Leather Zipper Closure Handbags Yellow came just in time.

Work and Play: Becoming A Fashionably Reliable Freelancer

The idea of becoming self-employed today may not be so difficult to contemplate since recent advances in technology have made this a feasible option. And it certainly has been gaining a lot of converts lately. Why wouldn't it? You can earn a regular income and you don't have to commute to and from work every day. Some people even think that you don't have to dress up. You can just lounge in your living room, wearing your pajamas, armed with just a cup of coffee and a laptop, and you'd be all set to work for the day.

However, in the interest of also avoiding becoming a veritable frumpy hermit, it would be good advice to somehow find a balance between becoming a reliable freelancer and having a respectable social life--one where you can go out with friends for a drink or go on a holiday once in a while. Besides, "all work and no play" might end up making you anti-social.

Kidding aside, it is indeed quite important to be able to also have time for some R&R once in while. A day at the beach perhaps? But how do you do this exactly? How do you balance work and leisure? Well, here are some nuggets of wisdom that you might find interestingly helpful in achieving that goal.

1. Have a chic list of goals.
Make a list of the things you want for yourself--that cute doll dress or those sexy pumps you spied at the mall last week, perhaps--and put it in a place where you can easily see it. Choose places where you usually work, like in your living room or if you have a study, on the wall in front of your desktop. This way, you are constantly reminded of the things you should be aiming for and you don't lose focus.

Say NO to Stretch Marks

Stretch Marks - almost every woman's worst body nightmare.
I remember back in college when I'd do anything NOT to gain weight so I wouldn't get to deal with stretch marks later on. I believe it's a bit embarrassing to look in the mirror and see those scars-like on your skin. Getting one would probably make us feel insecure about ourselves. You are lucky enough if you have stretchy type of skin, if not, you are not alone!
