When I started this blog, some of my friends suggested I write a petite fashion do’s and don’ts. While I am still planning to create an ultimate petite styling guide (watch out for this!), I think it’s really important to address some myths about styling a petite body frame first.
TBH, a lot of these misconceptions are written by bloggers or fashion writers who do not know how to style. Yes, I said what I said, and I meant what I said. The truth is, there are a lot of styling workarounds for these misconceptions. Additionally, not all petite body frames are the same; so many petite girls can rock outfits that are perceived as not-so-petite-friendly. Instead of telling you, let me show you what I mean. Yes, sis, I have proof!
I have never really been serious about skincare and makeup until a couple of years ago. Until now, I still do not have a super complicated skincare routine or makeup techniques. What I do know, however, are two things. One, it’s extremely important to find the perfect basic products for what your skin needs, and; two, a lot of the ingredients we put on our faces are not just harmful to us, but also the planet. So, for this blog, I am going to share what I think are the best eco friendly beauty brands for your basic skincare and makeup needs! P.S. I am also making sure that I include brands that ship worldwide!
One thing you need to know about me is that I am a huge clothes repeater! However, I try my best not to repeat my outfits too much and instead play around with the pieces I already have. The secret to not purchasing and wasting too many clothes while still staying chic and stylish is to invest in a few quality and versatile wardrobe staples that you can style a million ways.
In today’s new normal brought on by the notorious COVID-19, it is more important than ever to stay safe and healthy. The continuous rise in cases from this deadly virus has pushed many of us to include masks, sanitizers, and disinfectant wipes/sprays in our daily essentials. However, the massive increase in sales of disposable masks and sanitizer containers has led to 75% of these items ending up in landfills or floating in the seas (United Nations, 2020). I must admit that I, myself, have been making a lot of waste from disposable masks, used disinfectant wipes, and even the use of plastic from grocery stores that do not allow bringing of reusable bags. The good news is many brands have developed sustainable items that will keep us protected from Miss ‘Rona. Here are some of my favorite eco-friendly quarantine essentials that you might want to check out the next time you stock up!
As someone who works in the tech industry, I’ve been working from home way before COVID-19. While I didn’t work from home fulltime, I did spend three out of five working days at home. In the beginning, my idea of a work from home outfit is a hoodie on top of my pajamas. I would just roll out of bed 30 or even 15 minutes before my daily first-hour meeting, splash cold water on my face, and gulp a quick cup of coffee to look alive.
Let me tell you, this was super comfortable. In fact, maybe too comfortable that I ended up climbing back into bed after basically staying on mute the entire meeting. Yes, it was cozy – but it wasn’t working (pun intended). Since then, I’ve been playing around with pieces in my wardrobe to find the right balance between comfy and professional. Since many of us are staying at home fulltime, I thought I’d share some work from home outfit ideas that I’ve been practicing for two years now.
