My Love Affair with Fashion

I've always been passionate about fashion. It started when I was a little girl and my mom bought me lots of fancy dresses fit for a princess. I was and always will be a sucker for clothes, accessories, and anything that spells fashion. At an early age I knew what looked good and what didn't and I enjoyed dressing up. With this in mind I really should have been a fashion designer but I couldn't because I don't know how to draw and I'm not very creative. It's only recently that I realized that I can be a fashion stylist, like Liz Uy perhaps. You don't need to draw well, you need only to be fashion savvy. But to be one you should know people in the fashion industry and have many connections. Unfortunately, I don't. So I just channel my being passionate about fashion by being a fashionista and by shopping for accessories. Lots and lots of accessories. I go gaga over them! I have a collection of earrings and bangles that are just gathering dust. But who cares! I simply can't go to a mall without buying one. I also do my own and sell them at my online shop. I absolutely glow at every compliment I get for my clothes and fashionable accessories. I would have wanted to run after my passion and made a career out of it but sometimes life takes us on a different path. It is what it is. The important thing is to keep your passion alive in other ways you know how.

This Birthday and Beauty Giveaway would not be possible without the help of these wonderful sponsors.

My Fitness Goal This 2011

I'm a health buff alright. I don't have vices that would wreak havoc on my health such as smoking and drinking (this I do only occasionally). I'm also well aware of foods that would do more harm than good. I try to eat a well balanced diet and veer away from pork although there are times when I do eat a chunk or two. These days most of my diet consists of vegetables, fish, and lots of fruits. It may sound boring to others but hey I'm not getting any younger so I really do have to stick to food that I know would make me live longer. I come from a family of doctors so being conscious with my health is I guess something that is expected of me. With regards to my weight, I must say I've never had any problems with gaining unwanted pounds. On the contrary I do want to gain more weight because I think I am much too slim. I want to be curvier like Jennifer Lopez and Sophia Vergara. It's frustrating at times because even if I eat like a horse I never seem to gain much. This year I would definitely make it a priority to reach my ideal weight. I'm gonna increase my calorie consumption by eating more foods that are rich in healthy fats such as tuna and salmon, healthy protein such as lean meat and chicken, and healthy carbohydrates such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains. I know I should exercise more but I'm kinda lazy in that department. But this year I promise to lift weights so as to increase my muscle size. I'm so looking forward to achieving this fitness goal. I just hope that I don't encounter any bumps along the way.

Mapanghingi Ka Ba?

I'm never the "mapanghingi type". Sadly, sometimes women are stereo-typed to be like that and I quite resent it because I'm not and never will be one. I see myself as being independent and self-sufficient in terms of getting or buying the things I want. When I want something, I work really hard so I can buy it. I even stop myself from going to the mall or dining out just so I can save money. But it's different when a friend or someone special gives you something. It would be so rude if you don't accept the gift. As the saying goes, whatever blessings that come your way you should receive them with open arms. So when that happens I just give them my brightest smile and my whole hearted thank you.

Learning from the Year 2010

We go through life learning continuously as we encounter new experiences along the way. Last year was particularly special because I've discovered many practical things that has made me a better person. I used to spend so much money shopping for things that I didn't really need but once my credit card bills started piling up, I decided to give up one of my cards and not bring my remaining cards when I go to the mall or dine out. This way I'll be forced to pay cash. Now I only shop for things that are necessary. I have also learned to manage my time quite well. Since I work from home I am able to get more things done. I get up very early in the morning and by late afternoon I'm able to accomplish all the tasks that are needed to be done. Lastly, I have learned to cook a decent meal. When I crave for food, I no longer reach the telephone and have food delivered. I whip up something simple but yummy to satisfy my hunger. Now I'm really excited about what 2011 has in store for me and the things that I can't wait to accomplish.

My Pond's Gold Radiance Experience

I've always been a Pond's fan ever since I can remember. There was a time though that I used to "experiment" on other products but when I started using Pond's and realized that it suited my skin the most, there's just no looking back. I always look forward to trying whatever new products they have because I know that it would exceed expectations. Now I'm pretty excited to share to you guys how amazing their new line is: the Pond's Gold Radiance.

Pond's Gold Radiance is targeted for women in their 30's. So it's definitely for me. The packaging of the products look really inviting and spells c-l-a-s-s-y. I've been using the facial foam, youthful glow day cream, precious youth serum, and youth reviving eye cream for only more than a week but already there are visible results. The facial foam exfoliates without drying my skin. It's infused with real gold microparticles that revive skin's youthful glow. It's not as foamy as Ponds' other cleansers but after a second wash, I can feel how clean and taut my face is.

I then apply the youthful glow day cream with SPF 15 PA++ which I absolutely love. It protects my skin from the sun's harmful rays. Pond's says that with continuous use wrinkles and fine lines will be concealed revealing revitalized skin. The consistency is just right so it's easy to apply. Instead of being in a tube like some creams, it's in a container which prevents messy dispensing. In turn, nothing's wasted. I then put on the precious youth serum with flakes of real gold to make the day cream more effective. This one has Vitamin B3 which helps reduce age spots.

Lastly, I always dab the youth reviving eye cream. This one I think I really need since I've had "eye luggages" for the longest time. I also sleep late thus I have dark circles around my eyes. I use it twice a day: in the morning after putting on the day cream and serum and before I go to bed.

For women who want their youthful glow to be restored, I highly recommend the Pond's Gold Radiance line. You won't regret it.

I love Pond's Gold Radiance! This is my entry for MrsMartinezRavesAndRants.
