Beside U Bag- The Perfect Companion By Your Side

Tuesday, December 08, 2020

     This pandemic has changed our lives in many ways. We learned the value of cleanliness because now more than ever, hand washing became a habit. Even if we think our hands are clean, there's an urge to wash it with soap and water right away when it touches any surface. Speaking of adapting to changes, I also change the way how I bring my essentials. My motto now is the lesser, the smarter. The functional, the better. This implies how I carry my essentials most importantly my bag. 

     Since I only go out for errands or when there's an important matter to do, I need a bag that is lightweight, sturdy, easy to clean, and functional. If it's stylish, why not that's already a bonus. Looks like I've hit the jackpot when I saw the perfect errand bag from Beside U Bags Philippines. Know more about the features of their bags, and why I highly recommend this brand below.

Feature: Easy Soft Shoes by World Balance

Sunday, June 30, 2019

     One of the most exciting yet can be a stressful season for kids and moms is back-to-school. Time for new beginnings- classmates, friends, teachers, school supplies, and uniforms. This is the season when moms like me make a to-buy list of school essentials that kids will use for the school year. One of the essential that is overused and abused is the school shoes.

     Love the rhyming there but this momma loves a pair of school shoes that is easy on the budget, can withstand rainy days, comfortable to walk and run with and looks nice when worn. We've tried a handful of brands before that's over my budget thinking that it is durable and will last until the end of the school year but Nah. After months of wearing, the school shoes of choice will either have a detached sole (because my son runs a lot) or it's not nice to wear anymore because dents and scratches are already visible. This school year will be different because I was introduced to a brand that will pass all the criteria I'm looking for school shoes- meet Easy Soft by World Balance.

OOTD: Classic

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

     It's been a long time since I posted an outfit of the day post of my son. I presume you've seen my Instagram post of his latest OOTD. It's not easy to make kids pose in front of the camera. If your kid is cooperative, you're lucky. You can take outfit shots anytime, anywhere. But in my case, it's always a trial and try kind of game.

     When my son is so game to pose, I'm trigger happy that's why I always bring my mirrorless camera with me. I don't have a scheduled post for outfit shots that's why I'm so happy when an unplanned photo session happens. Sharing my son's OOTD that was taken after attending a birthday party at Robinsons Magnolia.

     Our favorite clothing brand- Penshoppe opened its all-new flagship store yesterday and I got the first dibs on what Penshoppe has to offer this 2017. Definitely it's a new year, new store because the 800-square meter fashion haven dubbed as Penshoppe Capital screams all things fashion. This is not your ordinary Penshoppe store so you really have to see for yourselves :)

“One of our biggest considerations when designing Penshoppe Capital is to make it a destination,” shares Jeff Bascon, Penshoppe’s Brand Director. “In order to do this, we need to create a unique shopping experience. That’s when we thought about playing with space. The store is laid out in such a way that shoppers can easily move from one section to the next and allows everyone to have a clear view of the brand’s offerings at a macro perspective.”
Penshoppe Capital Experience

     I arrived early at the venue and roamed inside the store. There are different sections and true to what Jeff Bascon said, they've created these sections for shoppers to easily access one offering to another. My favorite sections are:

1. Basics- Penshoppe All Day

Simple Tips for #PerfectOOTD + OPPO F1s Feature

Tuesday, December 27, 2016

     How do we define a #PerfectOOTD? I presume that the first thing inside your mind is the outfit- the style that the outfit is trying to show. It may be plain and simple, edgy, girly, sporty, and so on as long as one knows how to mix and match clothing pieces to create different pegs and styles.

     Nowadays, having a perfect OOTD doesn't only evolve in the outfit per se. If you want to stand out in your OOTDs better practice simple techniques that will make you and your outfit look great in photos. I'm not a pro- fashion blogger but I've shared some ootd posts before and whenever I feel that I have captured great images of my outfit that day. Sharing with you my recent outfit of the day post plus simple tips for that #PerfectOOTD below :)

Simple Tips for #PerfectOOTD +  OPPO F1s Feature

OOTD: J's On His Feet

Tuesday, December 06, 2016

     Hello mommies! Here's another OOTD of my son Kenzo wearing his latest kicks- Jordan Eclipse BG. I want to share a short story why I'm a fan of Jordan shoes. When I was in high school, Nike released series of Air Jordans like Jordan 11, Jordan 12, and Jordan 13. I bought the first two because of their colors (combination of white, red, and black) that I really like. I wore those rubber shoes during P.E. days and when I'm wearing jeans and shorts. 

     Fast forward today, the styles that I've mentioned above became rare. I think the original Jordan 11 and Jordan 12 sells for more than Php 10,000 now. If you're a fan of Air Jordan prolly you have those iconic shoes in your collection. Nike Jordan offers a wide array of rubber shoes today and I'm confused with the styles and names of new releases I see in stores and online. The story behind Kenzo's Jordan Eclipse BG after the jump!

OOTD: Swag Junior

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

     Hello dearies! Since it's wordless Wednesday today, let me share with you a quick outfit of the day post of Kenzo. This was taken after the Swag Junior launch at One Shangrila Place Ortigas last October. Kenzo was wearing his picks from Swag Junior's Holiday Collection.

     I'm happy with Swag Junior's clothing line. They are so cool and easy to mix and match with other pieces. I super love the bomber jacket that Kenzo picked, perfect jacket this coming holiday season. More details of his outfit after the jump!

Cool Kids Wear Swag Junior

Tuesday, November 08, 2016

     What comes to your mind when you hear the word swag? It's an internet slang that became popular last year and is used to describe a type of style especially in outfits. I've seen photos on Instagram with the hashtag 'swag outfit' and that outfit is more of a street style to me. It's sporty and edgy at the same time.

      Last October, I was invited to the launch of the newest clothing brand for the lil boys and girls- Swag Junior. Swag Junior is a fashion street wear brand for the coolest kids in town. Designed to be a contemporary yet comfortable alternative to typical children’s fashion, Swag Junior's collections are inspired by one of the world’s most distinct fashion meccas, Japan. Mommies we have reason to celebrate, because Swag Junior has brought their one-of-a-kind aesthetic to Manila. Are you ready to see the collection and how cool a kid can be just by wearing Swag Junior? Read more below :)

Robinsons Department Store's Office Look Fashion Hacks

Friday, September 30, 2016

     When I was in college, I don't wear a daily uniform. It's a love-hate relationship because I can wear the comfiest outfit I want but I'm running out of clothes to wear. Hahahaha! I think this dilemma also goes to other college students and office workers who wear civilian clothes.    

     There are days when you know you’ve got your look on point. But admit it, there are some days when you wish your office had a uniform to make things easier in the morning and cut dressing time. So what do you do if your wardrobe and budget are limited and you want to look stylish and polished every day? The easiest way to solve this problem is to mix and max and Robinsons Department Store offers some tips and hacks on how to look perfect for the workplace. Read more after the below :)

OOTD: Pink and White

Friday, September 02, 2016

     There are events that require and outfit or attire in colors that I'm not comfortable wearing. Pink and white to be exact. I always feel that I gained an extra pound or two wearing a white top. If you'll rummage my closet, you'll see mostly neutrals and no pinks or girly colors. But when the need to wear something pink or white arise, I follow :)

     Months ago, I went to an event where the attendees should wear white. I worried a little days before the event because-white. Fortunately, I still have white tops that I bought at SM Woman last year and thought of just pairing it with a skirt. Fast forward, I was window shopping a day  before the event and found a printed skirt that I paired with my white top. The combination- pink and white! Outfit details below :)
OOTD: Pink and White
     I will just make this post short. To give you an idea, I always go for comfort every time I attend events even if there's an outfit. Thankful that Jen Maslang of shopgirljen.com is always there to help and give advice on what to wear. She's my fashion adviser :) 
OOTD: Pink and White
     I told her that I saw the skirt I'm wearing above at SM Woman and after seeing me wearing it inside the fitting room, she said that it's very nice. So without second thoughts, that skirt went home with me.
OOTD: Pink and White
Sm Woman White Button Down Top
      This white top is also from SM Woman, worn it three times max. Good thing I kept it because I have this OC-ness when I'm no longer using something, I tend to give it right away to my siblings or to my cousins. 
OOTD: Pink and White
SM Woman Printes A Line Skirt
     Don't you love this skirt? The print is awesome as it made the skirt stand out. This style comes in two colors but unfortunately the other color (blue) doesn't fit me. Bought this skirt at 50% off :)

      As always, the comfiest shoes for my super sensitive feet- Skechers Go Walk 2. This baby needs a little cleaning though.

OOTD: White Walls

Saturday, April 23, 2016

     If you're a fan of the movie- Cars, prolly you're thinking that the title of this post will showcase those white walls! Cars movie fanatics surely have an idea that I'm talking about white wall tires. Well, this is Kenzo's second outfit of the day (OOTD) post for this year and I'm excited to share the outfit details below. 

     But first, the title of the post is somewhat connected with the word 'white', not the white wall tires that was mentioned in the movie (the scene of McQueen, Luigi, and Guido) because it's more of the color of Kenzo's outfit. Since white sneakers are sooo in, let me share with you his white kicks and why I chose the style and the brand after the jump :)
OOTD: White Walls
     So here's a short story about the brand and style of Kenzo's white sneakers. By the way, the hubby and I still believe in the saying "old school is cool" that's why we have chosen K-Swiss. If you're a 90's baby, I'm sure that you have heard of the brand before. We saw this white sneakers on display at Rookie USA Fairview Terraces and I fell in love with it immediately.
OOTD: White Walls
Top- Converse

Bottom- Uniqlo Easy Pants

Shoes- K-Swiss Hoke Strap Sneakers

Socks- OshKosh B'gosh

     I asked hubby's opinion first before buying this sneakers. And because he's a fan of classic and simple style sneakers, we agreed to buy the sneakers for Kenzo's P.E. shoes this coming school year but because it's simply stylish, Kenzo's been abusing the shoes already. Hahaha! 
OOTD: White Walls
K-Swiss Hoke Strap White
     Okay, so much for the shoes! We also bought this white Converse shirt at Rookie USA because it's on sale. For every cash payment transaction, buyers can score Converse and Levi's shirt for only Php 200. The original price of this shirt is Php 600+. What a steal!!! I'm not sure if the promo still applies until today though :(
OOTD: White Walls
     Last look how white this K-Swiss Hoke Strap sneakers because it looks different right now. Not that white white since Kenzo wears this more than twice a week. It's a bit hard to maintain white sneakers especially if an active kid wears it. Expect that it will get dirty every now and then. 
OOTD: White Walls
     More than the maintenance of white sneakers, I'm happy that I've chosen this classic style. Simple yet stylish and wearable. Hope that Kenzo's feet will grow a little slower than the average rate. I want him to really enjoy wearing this sneakers because it's easy to style and yes, it's comfy too. This is Kenzo's outfit of the day (OOTD) when we visited KidZania Manila weeks ago and witnessed the launch of National Art and Design Academy.

Until here mommies, let me know what you think of Kenzo's White Walls OOTD :)

OOTD: Kenzo and Minecraft

Wednesday, January 20, 2016

     Hi dearies! Pardon me if I'm bombarding you with outfit posts these past few days. I'm just making sure that all the pending OOTD posts we had taken last year will be published and not buried in my dashboard. I have this habit of forgetting things especially when I don't see it in my document folders. 

     As what I've told you on my previous posts, I tend to store all the photos in different usb storage that I received from events. Prolly this will be the last outfit post for January. There will be more OOTD in the next month for me and Kenzo. Anyhoo, this outfit post was taken last November at Robinsons Magnolia. It's an impromptu outfit shot that I decided to take because of the location. Outfit details and a short story below :)
OOTD: Kenzo and Minecraft
     My apologies for the title of this outfit of the day. I can't think of a decent title and all I was thinking while writing this post was Kenzo's favorite online game as of the moment- Minecraft. I presume some mommy readers here can relate. Kenzo loves playing Minecraft and he's starting to like stuff associated with the game. This shirt is his one of his favorites. I bought this at SM Megamall last year when I saw Mommy Levy's son (Ren) wearing the same shirt on her IG feed. Kenzo saw the shirt too and asked me to buy him one. I'm glad that I was able to purchase one before the size ran out. 
OOTD: Kenzo and Minecraft
Kenzo just had his hair cut prior this photo
Top- JusTees Minecraft T-Shirt

Bottom- UNIQLO Denim Easy Shorts

Shoes- DC Shoes from ResToeRun Kids

     Meanwhile, Kenzo's shoes came from ResToeRun Kids' Rumble Yard Event. I had a hard time choosing a pair for him during the event because almost all the styles I've chosen does not have an available size for his feet. This pair of DC shoes is two inches bigger than his feet. But methinks looks perfect in the photo above. No walking and running during the time we did this shot, hahaha!

You're really growing up so fast, baby loves! Hope you like his casual outfit.

OOTD: The Usual ME

Sunday, January 17, 2016

     Hi dearies! I'm so back with another OOTD post. My apologies if I've been posting outfit of the day lately, I just want to update you with the usual attire that I wear when I attend events or other occasions. I feel so comfortable with this kind of pairing and like what I've said on my previous outfit post, I'll never get tired of this ensemble.

     This is another long overdue OOTD post. I wore this last November during our Quezon City Blogventure Trip. We had a sort of educational trip around Quezon City to see the hidden gems of my birth place. Since we were advised to wear something comfy the day before the trip, I came up with the usual ME kind of attire. Outfit details below :)
OOTD: The Usual ME
     Again, for the nth time- wore my favorite pair of shoes and skirt. Both are versatile and can be mixed and matched with different tops and blouses. 
OOTD: The Usual ME
     FUN FACT: The sleeveless top I'm wearing was a gift 6 years ago. Even though I've worn this for more than ten times already, still no signs of wear and tear. The color is still the same the time I received it. 
OOTD: The Usual ME
OOTD: The Usual ME
     I'll just make this post short, I'm also proud to say that Grab bags are very functional and stylish. This Grab bag is my fifth bag from the brand. If you're frequent inside SM Department Store, do check them out. They have different sizes and styles of bag at a very affordable price. It's stylish and functional too. If this bag could talk, it will prolly tell me to bring few stuff with me because there were times that I think I'm overloading it. Yay, thank you so much for dropping by :) For brands that I'm wearing, see them below!

OOTD: Kenzo's Christmas Party 2015

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

     Hello mommies! Today, I'll be sharing a quick ootd post. This time, let me share with you what Kenzo wore during his classroom Christmas party last year. The theme of last year's Christmas party was simple. No need to dress-up like a prince or princess, or the child's favorite character. He was advised to wear something comfortable. So I decided to let Kenzo wear something that is comfortably fashionable. 

     Since Kenzo still has new and unused clothes which he received from our relatives, I didn't bother to spend too much on his outfit. I only bought a pair of slim fit shorts because his favorite pair looks too short on him already. I will not keep you waiting, outfit details below :)
OOTD: Kenzo's Christmas Party 2015
     I noticed that this outfit made Kenzo look like he's already a 'teen'. If I could only stop the time and say to him everyday "don't grow too fast", I will. But that will never happen, my baby will be in his teens five years from now. But no matter what happens, he will always be my baby :)

Top- L.O.G.G Casual Classics by H&M Stripe Button Down

Bottom- JusTees Slim Fit Shorts

Shoes- Meet My Feet Ankle High Boots

     I'm so happy that his outfit looks good on him. The colors complement each other and he's very comfortable with this attire the entire day. He didn't complain about his outfit and I can see that he's enjoying while I take his outfit shot.
