Nudo Swimwear's Promo: 2 for Php900.00 Swimsuits

April 30, 2014

The month of May is still going to be a month of outing for me so I am again on the look out for new swimsuits. And given my budget, I am really happy that I was able to avail Nudo Swimwear's promo regarding their Buy One take One on one of their design. Below are the items that I bought: Beach Goddess (printed) and Lime Royal.

I have been hesitant of ordering swimsuits online since I know that my body type is not that friendly with sizes (I am a pear shape). So I normally want to fit the item before buying them. But when I saw these pairs from the shop's Instagram account, I immediately contacted the seller through Viber. They were nice enough to accommodate my request regarding the delivery date since I was not in Manila that weekend. And I was surprise that the material used are the type that is to my liking. By the way, I ordered them together because I have the intention of using them interchangeably due to the common color, which is yellow green. And as you can see below, the ribbon is removable as well as the straps so you can still wear it in a different way each time. Now I am more excited for my beach outing for the coming weeks!

I saw that they are again offering this promo so if you are interested to have one, you can always contact them through Instagram (@nudoswimwear) where you can find there contact details. They only charge Php50.00 for shipping fee. And if ever you have been a customer of Nudo Swimwear, care to share your thoughts on their products? I'd really love to know reviews of this shop from readers. Anyway hope you are all enjoying the last day of April. Happy day to all!

Surprise Combination (All black Combo From Forever 21)

April 28, 2014

You have seen this cropped top (Forever 21) a lot of times here in my blog and as much as I have used it using different styles, I was still surprised when I unexpectedly got the chance to wear it as an all black ensemble given my new pencil skirt from the same store. I might be late for this matching skirt and cropped top trend but I am happy that it was what I came up with as attire for our little get-together at Republiq last April 12. And since I am already in an all black ensemble, I decided to just accentuate with things in red such as my shoes from Payless Shoe Source, Nine West wallet given to me last year by a my good friend Brij, and of course lipstick from Avon ( I am loving this lippie since I started using it last month!).

    Cropped Top Php455 +  Pencil Skirt Php295 (rough estimate) = Php750.00  

Forever 21 has been releasing items that are below Php500.00 and I've been ending up buying tops and skirts from them these past few months. If I remember it correctly, this particular skirt is just below Php300.00 and the other two skirts (which I will post soon) are Php355.00. i consider them good deal since I can wear them both to the office or for events just by styling them accordingly. I hope I can buy other colors soon the next time I check their store.

By the way, I was also wearing my Ebi Chan half wig from Tokyo Posh. I will post clearer photos soon wearing them and let you be the judge if they are better than the clip on one. All I can say for now is that it is much easier to wear than Jessica. Details about the day that I bought this new wig will be posted soon so hope you visit The Budget Fashion Seeker again. Have a great day!

Cropped Top Php455 .00- Forever 21
  Pencil Skirt Php295.00 (rough estimate) - Forever 21
Shoes Php1250.00 - Payless Shoe Source
Necklace Php99.00 - Celine Accessories

Let's Don the Twists: Get summer-ready looks with Butterfly Twists' newest collection

April 26, 2014

As much as I love heels, those gorgeous babies are mostly worn whenever I have events or night outs with friends. Gone were the days when I can go to work wearing heeled shoes and I you can normally see me wearing flats sandals or shoes on a daily basis on my way to work or when I'm at the mall. And for those of you who are also into flat footwear, you might be interested to check out this brand: Butterfly Twists.

The foldable type of flat shoes is not something new to us. But the brand is to me. I've seen it the first time when I was doing my regular visit to Podium. I actually forgot the price range of their products but I remember that they have cute designs for that matter. Below are just some photos of their latest collection:

Pick #3

I think based on my picks, I am drawn to that style with a line of stitch at the toe area. I think they will be wearable for me at work.

BDJ Box Beauty Social: Tres Chic

April 25, 2014

It's already the last Friday of April! I can't believe that we are halfway through summer already. I hope most of you have already done your own way of relaxation may it be at home or by traveling outside Manila. You know how I love going to the beach so as of today, my skin color is super dark already due to the beach outings that I went to. You will know as soon as I post my most recent outfit shots haha!

Anyway, as promised, here are the photos that I took from BDJ event called Tres Chic last March 23. The event was held at SM Aura Samsung Hall and I think I have been there twice already. I signed up for two talks that time. However, since I arrived at the venue after lunch, I was only able to attend the second one, the Up Close and Flawless with Max Factor by Bobby Carlos. His talk was  very informative since the discussion was mainly about how to prettify while at the beach. And the bonus was, all the participants of the talk were given a sample sachet of Max Factor's newest product: Whipped Creme Foundation. I haven't tried my sample but I already saw the packaging at SM Department Store and the price is Php895.00. 

I was able to check every booth in the venue. And for me, the most attractive one was the Moschino perfume booth. I had a lot of photos by this booth and in all fairness, the scent that they were endorsing (the red one, which is the chic petal) smells really good. One bottle though is Php4000.00+.

Miakka Lim for Benefit

Events of Belle de Jour always consist of sponsors having free samples or contests and one of the things that I availed that day was the free makeover from Cover Girl courtesy of a talented makeup artist and blogger, Sabs Hernandez. She is really friendly and I was happy with the result of our session! It was indeed fun to try other Cover Girl products since I just recently purchased a pressed powder from their kiosk at SM Department Store. If you want to get to know Sabs more, you may visit her blog at The Makeup Maven.

I was not able to share all the goodies that I got that day but there were lots of them! I really hope that I can attend more of their events and that eventually I will gain more friends and meet new people. I will inform you if ever I get email notification again for their upcoming event. So always stay tuned at The Budget Fashion Seeker! Great day to all!

Feeling Chic at Tres Chic (Belle De Jour Planner Event)

April 24, 2014

cropped top Php455.00 - Forever 21
+ pants Php500.00 (sale) - Freeway 
= Budget Outfit : Php955.00

I had my first experience of attending a Belle de Jour event last October during the annual BDJ Fair. I went there alone in Mall of Asia but then I really had fun visiting the different booths of sponsors as well as listening to the talks. So I told myself that I will try my best to attend more BDJ events this year. And voila! I already attended two events. They actually had the third one this month but then I was not able to attend due to some conflict with my schedule. 

cropped top Php455.00 - Forever 21
pants Php500.00 (sale) - Freeway
flats Php537.00 (sale) - Payless Shoe Source
hair extension - Jessica Php2400.00 (sale) - Tokyo Posh

On to my outfit, this is the ensemble that I wore to the second BDJ event that I attended last March 23: Tres Chic. This was an event for ladies who are fond of makeup products. And even though I am not hardcore in terms of cosmetics, I also wanted to learn few things since it will come very handy especially if I need to attend parties or certain occasions etc. I decided to just wear colored pants so I can move around easily during booth visit. Just to add some oomph factor to my bottom, I paired the plain maroon pants with one of my favorite cropped top from Forever 21. I already had an outfit post using this top (read here) but then I think this maroon/black and white combination is a little more eye catching don't you think? 

I made sure that I wear my embellished flats from Payless Shoe Source so my feet were comfortable the entire afternoon. And I totally love that I was able to blend my Tokyo Posh extensions well that day too! Anyway I will share more stories and photos about this event so make sure you drop by The Budget Fashion Seeker  tomorrow!  Have a great day everyone!
