Product Review : OnlineGym4me (plus free trial!)

The Budget Fashion Seeker - OnlineGym4me 1

For the past months, I have noticed that I have been living an unhealthy life: eating lots of fast food meals, watching TV for hours (I blame these addicting series haha!) and cooking mostly fried food when I'm in the mood to cook. I know I am not getting any younger and I can really feel that my body feels heavy and I easily get upset stomach. So I told myself, it is already time to make baby steps towards a healthier lifestyle. I was able to do my first step, which is to incorporate fruits in my daily food intake. And so far I am happy that I look for fruits more than I crave for potato chips. I even tried fruit infused water to get me to finish more liters than what I am used to drink. As for my next step, find time to exercise!

Monde Nissin x Uniqlo Press Conference

July 13, 2016

For the first time, Monde Nissin collaborates with Uniqlo to produce limited edition tees featuring designs of iconic Filipino brand, Lucky Me!, and the country’s favorite cookie sandwich, Bingo.
As a Filipino, I always feel happy whenever our local brands are put to highlight due to amazing projects. So imagine my surprise that the products that I grew up with have partnered with another brand that I love: Uniqlo limited tees with Monde Nissin products.

The press conference was held last June 28 by the two companies to unveil their new collaboration of limited edition tees. I got an invite but was not able to attend due to being out of the country. Fortunately, our friends from Greenbulb PR were happy to share what happened during the event. And given the quality of Uniqlo items, I would have love to get one of those Lucky Me! shirts!

Would you find yourself wearing one of these shirts? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section. Great day everyone!

Budget Outfit: When in Hong Kong

The Budget Fashion Seeker - UNIQLO PH Red Pants

2014 was the year that I finally decided that it was time for me to travel outside the Philippines. I was turning 30 and what I had in mind was to go to 3 countries within the year and imagine how happy I was that I was able to do it! You already knew about my first out of country trip to Singapore given this post. And as for my second trip, I chose Hong Kong!

I had fun with my solo trip in Singapore as I was able to roam around in two ways: sightseeing alone and with the company of some friends to places like USS and Marina Bay Sands. But the fact that I my main goal for this vacation was Disneyland, I asked a good friend of mine to if she could accompany me. And I was so happy she did! We had fun during our tour and especially those time spent in Disney and Ocean Park. I would definitely visit Hong Kong again!

These photos were from our first day during the city tour when were enjoying the view at the Avenue of Stars. I opted for a comfortable yet chic outfit so I came up with this printed shirt and UNIQLO legging pants that I love so much (I have it in 5 colors!). I just added my handy vest to make it look more stylish. Oh and by the way, I was wearing my Jessica half wig here from Tokyo Posh. You can find all the details of what I am wearing at the end of this post. So what do you think about this look? Happy Monday to all!
