Never underestimate the importance of Physical Fitness. In this day and age, it is so easy to fall into the whole lifestyle of having everything done with just a click of a button. The advancement of technology has made it easier for people to become couch potatoes instead of being up and about. Simple everyday errands like bank transactions, shopping, and even buying groceries can now be done in the comforts of your own home. It’s great news for the fast paced lives we lead but bad news for our bodies. It’s time to get back into shape and I’ve found the best place to do exactly that—Movement Performance Manila.

THE ALDO LIQUIDATION BARGAIN-NATION

Aldo earrings, eyewear, necklace, and swimwear

For years, I’ve been very secretive about my tricks of the trade when it comes to bargain shopping. I guess I always thought that the more people knew about them, the less chances I’d have to get the best deals possible. Recently, I’ve let go of that way of thinking and I’ve decided to slowly reveal all my shopping secrets so everyone can enjoy the benefits of bargain shopping for themselves. I’m kicking off this new blog series with my go-to shopping place for one of my favorite brands—Aldo. When the Suyen Corporation brought this lovely brand to the Philippines, I fell in love with it instantly. The price though wasn’t as pretty as the products so I would only buy sale items before I randomly discovered the wonders of the Aldo Liquidation store.

FINDING SHOE LOVE AT DSW

April 7, 2016

The one thing in the fashion world that I truly go crazy for are shoes, shoes, and even more shoes! Last I checked, I have over a hundred pairs of heels–that’s right, I didn’t even count how many pairs of flats and sneakers I own. Some have never even been used and are still in their original packaging–they’re just too pretty to be worn out. There is nothing in this world that I wouldn’t do to find the perfect pair of shoes. I know times are hard and money doesn’t grow on trees so how could I possibly afford such a love for shoes? It’s simple really, every single pair of shoes that I own were either gifted to me or bought at a discounted price. Whenever I travel, one of my absolutely favorite places to shop for designer shoes is the Designer Shoe Warehouse.
