How To Style a Pre Loved Red Blouse

Every frugal fashion lover must learn the ways to save cash while showcasing passion for fashion. We have tons of stylish items to buy so we need to be prudent enough in every shopping spree.

As for me, I prepare a plan before shopping. Before creating such plan, I check my favorite fashion websites for inspiration. Then, I list the items that I need to buy.

Top: Thrifted | Skirt: Thrifted | Footwear: SM Aura Department Store

Here, I found a chic red blouse at one of my favorite second-hand stores. We know that pre-loved items cost less so you already know why I mix wearing luxurious and second hand pieces.

To make it more feminine, I chose to wear a structured skirt that I also bought in my favorite second-hand store. Also, I wore a trendy pair of shoes that I bought at SM Department Store to finish off the look. My makeup isn’t too heavy to show off since I’m already wearing a bold red blouse in this look.

Live Life Vegetarian Restaurant Review

We know that eating vegetables is one way to achieve a healthy lifestyle. Many people believe that being a vegetarian is worthwhile. As for me, I also eat vegetables even if I’m a huge fan of grilled meat and seafood. So when I had a chance to interview Nonoy Zuñiga and a new talent, Pau Cueto, at Live Life Vegetarian Restaurant in Makati City, I immediately accepted the invitation upon reading the message. It was clear to me that I recently decided to eat more vegetables so the invitation was perfect.

Last but not the least, the sweet and healthy chocolate drink. Well, I don’t drink coffee so this one is perfect for me.

By the way, I’m planning to try their Veggie Buffet that’s offered every Saturday since it’s very affordable. For only Php295.00 per person, you’ll enjoy a lot of cooked vegetables complete with appetizer, main course, dessert and bottomless drink of the day.

Live Life Restaurant is located at 2240 Chino Roces Avenue Makati City. FOR RESERVATIONS pls call: (02) 478 6310 / 0917 811 7435


Jam and Dance with FBC Rebirth at RJ Bistro

A few weeks ago, I was busy listening to my favorite songs from yesteryears in a way to revisit the past. Obviously, I’m still thinking about My Love Will See You Through and all popular songs of Dan Hill and Nonoy Zuñiga.

I didn’t know that it will lead to something good – meeting one of the my favorite singers, Nonoy Zuñiga. Truly a jet-setter, going back and forth the country and the US, he is also busy supporting new talents these days.

That’s how I met Pauline “Pau” Cueto, one of the promising singers nowadays. She was once a weekly contender of TV5’s Born To Be a Star and has a self-titled album that’s already out in the market for everyone to enjoy and listen to her all-OPM songs.

As part of the RJ Anniversary month, a special show Jam & Dance with FBC Rebirth Band will be held on July 20, 2016 at Dusit Thani Hotel with special guest, the Pop Icon Nonoy Zuñiga and introducing Pauline “Pau” Cueto. The time of the most-awaited event is 8:30 PM.

I’d like to share that Nonoy was with the Family Birth Control Band now called FBC Rebirth when he lost his right limb making him a collateral damage of Martial Law. Until now, Nonoy jams with his olb band whenever his schedule allows it.

Currently, FBC Rebirth still provides the disco music and popular tunes released years ago that made them popular in the live disco scene forty years ago. The band still performs with the original members such as Jiji Sanchez, Toots Almazan, Ferdy Flores, Peachy Murillo, Jess Balmaceda, Sammy Villarin, Gee Carlos, Danny Trias, Dex Ansay, Nilo Villanueva and Edwin Valente.
