Prom, Prom, Pro-Prom!

Hello loves,

Can you guys feel it? It's that time of the year again. No, not Christmas. Not even Thanksgiving. Oh, you know what I'm talking about! I'm talking about prom season! It's the time for panicking because of last minute dress shopping, looking for cheap prom dresses, and all the things you need to buy to make that once in a lifetime experience special.


Unfortunately, I didn’t have a prom when I was in high school due to some school issues in our batch. But, that never stopped me from window shopping, looking for the perfect dress, and buying it for my graduation party. I think that’s also one reason why I constantly post prom dresses in my blog.

If you haven't noticed in my blog, I like to post about prom dresses, wedding gowns, and just fantasize about a world where wearing a full length dress is the most normal thing in the world. Maybe it's the romantic in me that just loves a good dress. You know?


I came upon one website that makes a variety of dresses from long prom dresses to short ones with classy silhouettes or more modern silhouettes. I wish I knew of websites like this one during my high school years. Although, it’s still a pretty good website to buy cocktail dresses and other formal wears since they’re quite affordable. They have a variety of UK prom dresses, cocktail dresses, and even wedding dresses.

I found this cute short dress with a midriff cut. I think it's absolutely adorable.

I also found some dresses for those who have a strict dress code even for their prom.

I’ve put in this post some of the dresses I found, loved, and might even buy for an event in the future. I hope you guys find this post useful and it helps you in some way to decide where to buy your prom dresses, maybe look for a certain style, or just enjoy reading my thoughts.

Glamulet Black Friday Sale

Hello loves,

How have you guys been lately? I've been juggling my school load, personal life, and family life which translates to the lack of posts here in my blog. I know that I'm a sucky blogger who can't seem to update her blog on a regular basis but I do what I can to share as much as I can to you guys. I'm actually posting today since I just received a message from an online brand that I think you guys will surely like.

You can see on the banner above, Glamulet will be giving away over $1,000,000 worth of shopping vouchers on their website up till the 24th of November. It's part of their Black Friday event and I must say, I'm quite excited for this event. I'm actually sharing this to you guys to help spread the word on such a good deal. I'm still waiting on a reply for a coupon code that I might be able to give to you guys. I'm really keeping my fingers crossed. 

They also have an event for the bloggers they contacted which gives us the opportunity to win a Christmas-themed bracelet. The winner will be the one with the most "traffic" or views on their posts. I won't even dream of winning their Christmas edition complete bracelet set since I'm sure that there will be other bloggers who'll have more traffic than I do but that doesn't mean I won't share this awesome deal to you guys. After all, who doesn't love a good sale especially if it's for jewelry. wink

I'll be editing this post once I hear back from Glamulet's team. xx


Edit: I've linked the page where you guys can get a coupon that will be active on Black Friday. All you need to do is click on the banner (or this link) and it'll redirect you to the page. Just choose which coupon you want and viola! It'll be sent to your e-mails.

I'm also thinking of giving away the voucher Glamulet is giving me to one of you guys. It's a 50% off on all of their products on the website. So if you want that, just share this blog post on your social media accounts using the tag (#BFEGlamulet) while tagging a friend and I'll do a raffle on all of the people who shared. I'll announce the winner on November 18. Sounds good? Cool.

Good Morning

I think a big difference with the person who I was in the past and the person who I am now is the fact that I can look at myself and my photos without a sense of self-loathing and discrimination. I can actually tell you guys that I'm happy. I'm at peace with what I look like. I'm not gonna lie and say that I feel like that every day but on most days, I do feel good about myself. I came from looking at myself in the mirror and being critical about every aspect of my face and body to looking at the mirror and greeting myself a good morning.

I think the fact that I've started to appreciate the little "flaws" that I have and turn it into interesting points or quirks is a positive move towards finally accepting who I am. I know a lot of girls and women out there are critical with their bodies, it's only natural. We all have our insecurities and those small voices at the back of our heads that keep on telling us we're ugly, too fat, and unworthy. But you know what, that's okay. I am ugly on some days. I am fat because I don't watch what I eat and I eat whenever and whatever I want in excess. I do feel like I'm not worth a dime on some days because I'm not productive with my life and my choices are questionable.

But, that's okay. It's okay for me to feel like that on some days. It's okay for you to feel like that too.

There's nothing wrong with feeling down and worthless as long as you realize that it's only a phase. What you're feeling now is not permanent. In the ever changing flow of emotion and time, almost everything is inconsequential. Do you know what matters? What matters is your attitude towards self-improvement and the tomorrow you're dreaming of today. I hope you guys think about that and I hope I helped you even if it's just a little bit.

Stay strong.

Sessions Series: Miro Valera

Ikot - Miro Valera

After a lot of thinking and finally having the time to actualize my ideas, I've made the first of (hopefully) many more videos on my YouTube channel. Yes, I do have a channel. I just don't post on it. I'm going to incorporate my channel to this blog and hopefully make a lot of quality content for you guys. I decided the best way to do this is to make a series.

Sessions Series is a series of videos I've taken in Sessions Bar and Resto. It's not a lot but I wanted to share it to you guys since I had a great time attending music events and listening to new bands. As you guys know, I've rekindled my love for OPM and have been going to gigs and music festivals. You guys will be seeing a lot of music related posts soon. I'll be posting Mayonnaise's album tour, the rest of the Fete dela Musique posts, and the Indie Night event as well. I'll also be posting some of my travels as well so watch out for that. xx

FGMM: Walang Hanggan

When I first heard this song, I'm not gonna lie, I cried. It made me think about a lot of things that's going on in my life and my relationship. I'm not going to go into further details since I've learned that discussing to other people your personal relationship with your partner, instead of talking to your partner directly, leads to further misunderstanding and distance. But I do want to talk to you guys about this song.

This is an OST (Official Soundtrack) of the Filipino movie, Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa. It talks about the journey couples undergo throughout their relationship. The fire and warmth of a relationship at the beginning of their journey to, sadly, the inevitable cold and bitter end. It asks how a couple goes from making promises of a future together to a future without the other. It asks the other person to come back and try again. As the song says, 

"Pangako mo walang hanggan.
Akala ko walang hanggan
pero heto tayo, sa dulo."

If I were to translate those lines from the song, it means "You promised forever. I thought it was forever but here we are, at the end." Poetic, isn't it? ? I truly appreciate this band for giving me a song that is a narrative of the journey many people go through in life. Sometimes, the people we are with now may not necessarily be the people we'll be with in the future. Our promises now may just be distant memories and broken oaths in the future. Often than not, we try to hold on and keep the relationship afloat then later on, we begin to make excuses and be miserable in the relationship. So you ask yourself, "Where did I go wrong? What did I do wrong? Am I not enough?" and it hurts when you realize that the answer to those questions is simply... you don't know.

So guys, enjoy the song. xx
