The cold months are here and while we enjoy this nippy weather, we also need to keep ourselves warm if we can no longer take the cool weather. If you’re going abroad during their winter season or going to a place in the Northern part of the Philippines, it’s best to come prepared with your winter gears.

We went to Baguio and Sagada during the long Christmas break, and we brought some Uniqlo clothing with us. The coldest temperature we experienced was in Sagada, it went down to 13 C on our last night, brrrr…

Jeff knows more on packing light for the cold weather since he climbs mountains. He said that they key in dressing up is layering, so that you can remove the outer layers if you don’t need it anymore.

At first, I was skeptical with Uniqlo’s Heattech leggings if this will really work since it’s so thin. But guess what, it really kept me warm. What I also like about it is it’s so lightweight, light packers will love to have this in their essentials.

Boots season is here + Win $30 Voucher from DressYours.com

It’s winter in some parts of the world but even if we don’t have snow in the Philippines, fashionistas are also into winter fashion. But no fur coats please, if there’s one thing I love about this season is the excuse to wear boots. Aside from the rainy season, winter is the perfect time to parade those shoes.

While  I was in Landmark earlier, I tried a few pairs and fell in love with one pair but it’s not available in the color I wanted. Now, I can’t sleep because I can’t stop thinking about it. Oh well, I’ll just look for it in other branches. Meanwhile, I’m just satisfying my craving by looking at after Christmas Boots sales at Dress Yours.

That perfect evening dress

I was watching The Buzz earlier and I was awed by gorgeous gowns worn by celebrities at the Star Magic Ball 2013. Celebrities like Kim Chiu, Shaina Magdayao, Kathryn Bernado, Dimples Romana, etc. must have put a lot of time and effort in looking great that at the Star Magic Ball. Kudos to their respective designers too because they came up with elegant dresses at the ball.

Oh how I wish it’s prom night again. So that I can experience another magical night, it’s fun to dress up once in a while you know. Years ago, it was so difficult to find nice and affordable prom or evening dresses. At our Graduation Ball, my mother suggested that we buy the materials and have my gown made by our trusty dressmaker. But I wasn’t happy with the outcome then, it’s far from the gowns I used to see in magazines but what can I do, we have limited resources (materials-wise, etc.) back then.

But ladies can now rejoice because there are plenty of options today to make your prom night, graduation ball or any other occasion seemed like a fairy tale come true. Aside from the very talented designers, there are sites like DressFirst that offers designer-like gowns but at an affordable price. You can choose the color and size, you can even have the size customized for a perfect fit.

Here are my picks from DressFirst:

A-Line/Princess Scoop Neck Floor-Length Tulle Prom Dress With Ruffle Lace

A-Line/Princess One-Shoulder Floor-Length Chiffon Prom Dress With Ruffle Beading Sequins

Empire Sweetheart Asymmetrical Chiffon Prom Dress With Ruffle Beading

If there will be a special occasion that requires evening gowns, I will definitely order from them.
