Shades Originators Giveaway - Closed

Hey guys! Remember my last post about these Ksubi sunnies? Well here's just more proof of how much I love them. I obviously can't take them off.
But now it's your turn to rock your very own pair of sunnies from shades originators with this giveaway!
Aside from these Ksubi's, I chose to giveaway these Le Specs Neo Noir Torotoise shades.
I really wanted to keep them for myself or at least wear them in this post but I thought the winner should have first dibs on that. 
And it's seriously so easy to win!
All you have to do is:
1) Follow Shades originators on IG
2) Comment on this post & mention which pair of sunglasses from shadesoriginators.com you would choose for a friend.
That's it!

A few new things

As some of you may know, I recently underwent surgery to have my appendix removed. :-( It was rough for the first 10 days but I'm slowly getting back on my feet now and trying to get back to regular programming. I'm doing my best to be healthier and really be wary of what I put into my body 'cause I never wanna go through that sort of pain ever again!


Certain Appeal

There’s just something about circle skirts that make me want to twirl! They’re just so playful and feminine - not to mention breezy! I have been a victim of many windy days that lead to  Marilyn Monroe moments that just aren’t as adorable when you’re struggling to hold your skirt down while carrying shopping bags. So be smarter than I was and wear skin-tight shorts to avoid the embarrassment. 
‘Anywho’, thank goodness this day wasn’t like that at all. I was so comfortable in this Mode by Kat G. dress that I was just twirling to my heart’s desire! The dress is indeed very girly but the cut outs and asymmetrical neckline show just enough skin without being too vulgar. This is a great look for day to night events and even parties - a refreshing take on the regular party dress.

White Noise

There's just something so sophisticated about an a monochromatic look, especially with whites and beiges. It's the cleanliness and freshness of the colours that make them look so refined. However, there is always that love-hate relationship with white garments as they're always so high-maintenance to don. As much as I would love to wear white everyday, I don't think I'd be able to stay sane worrying about every possible stain the world has to offer. So I'll save this look for special, care-free days like this one when I shot with photographer Louie Arcilla for his portfolio. Just look at how nice and clean his photos are! Thanks so much, Louie. Working with you makes shooting such a breeze.

As you all know, I am a big lover of sunglasses and online shopping. So when I discovered Shades Originators I was pretty excited to find a website that combined my two loves.

Your Shopping Bag

Okay. So I have a little confession to make. Recently, I have been more and more addicted to online shopping. It's just so convenient! You can practically buy anything you need at the click of a button without having to go out, find parking, and line up in long queues. My favourite go-to items, though, are things you can't find so easily in the mall like this new Victoria Secret Trend Report Makeup Kit that I found online at Your Shopping Bag.
From afar, it just looks like a plain, old make up book but when you open it on the inside, it's actually a makeup palette with practically every colour you can find! It has everything from day to night colours, eye shadows, blush, lipstick, and even applicators! Great for travelling or even just keeping in the car if ever you need to change your look within the day.
I like it 'cause it even comes with instructions on how to achieve certain looks that are on trend for the season. So if you're feeling a bit adventurous, then you have all the tools to experiment in this tiny book! Not to mention how much more streamlined your makeup kit will be with just having this rather than 20 different items scattered all over the place. Plus, if you can end up looking like this everyday, then why not?!
Okay. Now I'm just dreaming.
I'm just so happy I found an online retailer that can guarantee each and every item's authenticity by sending store receipts to whomever requests for it so you know that what your buying is authentic and store-bought products from the U.S. They offer pre-order services from any US based online store but what's even better is that Your Shopping Bag has an ongoing promo which is a free Clinique gift with a purchase of P1,000! I got so excited by this prospect that I just made another wish-list of all the other items I wanna get in their store. Check them out below:
All these and more, available at Your Shopping Bag
Happy shopping!
