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.

Finding the Best Dress for a Filipino Summer

Monday, May 11, 2020

     The idea of dressing up for the summer is always exciting. The season calls for experimentation, allowing you to be adventurous with the clothes and accessories you wear, from your choice of scrunchie, all the way down to your flip-flops. In Western countries, dressing up for the summer means doing away with your chunky sweaters and thick leggings and opting for clothing pieces in brighter colors and fun prints. But in tropical countries like the Philippines, wearing summer-appropriate clothing can be tricky as you have to deal with humid weather. While it's always nice to be as stylish as possible, you also don't want to wear layers to avoid getting uncomfortable.

     So what has one got to do to remain breezy and trendy at the same time? Wearing a dress, of course! Dresses have always been known as one-trick wonders that style themselves. And when it comes to picking dresses best suited for the Philippine weather, you may want to consider a couple of factors. The rise in temperature shouldn't be an excuse to lay low on your sartorial standards, but you also don't want to wear a dress that will put a damper on your comfort. Here is a list of things you may want to consider when shopping for summer dresses.

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.

Beside U Bags featuring Tomey Crossbody Bag

Thursday, May 23, 2019

     Aside from coffee, milk tea, and eyebrow, there's one thing that I can call my life and that is my trusty bag. “Dala mo nanaman buong bahay nyo”- what friends keep on saying because I always bring large sized bags wherever I go. I can’t leave the house without my trusty bag that has everything I need to take on the daily challenges.

     Since I always bring a huge bag, the weight takes a toll on my shoulder and back causing pain. I know that it's not good because I'm causing more injury to my mild scoliosis. I also noticed that the bags I have now doesn't compliment my outfit these days.

Panasonic Manila Fashion Festival x iACADEMY

     One of the important investments in life is education that's why parents are working hard to enroll their children in the best schools in the metro. From Kindergarten to Grade School, Senior High, and College, parents are scrutinizing different academic institution first before entrusting their child's education to them. If your child is into computing, business and design, it's a no-brainer that you will look for the best school in those fields. Is your child into fashion and design but you are not sure where to enroll him/her? 

     I recently discovered a school where the students in the fashion and design department showed how to be different by being a game changer. I was truly amazed by what they have accomplished during their senior high school and college years when they showcased outputs from their Project-Based Learning and college theses at the Panasonic Manila Fashion Festival x iACADEMY last week. Sharing the highlights of the event and why study at iACADEMY below.
