Music is life. It makes ourselves express our emotions and feelings thru music. Most of all, it eliminates boredom. Especially, if you are in a long drive alone or with friends or maybe with special someone. This can help us surpass our challenges and struggles too. Moreover, I also discovered an app that could help every individual to rent a car. It is called Turo in a snap of a finger, you have an instant car to use.

I'm back from posting a review about online shops. Hopefully, I could start posting OOTDs too. Hahaha I need to bring back my confidence in posing and taking photos of my clothes. Pak ganern moment! Lelz

Today, I will show a few items I selected from Zaful.com. I got two dresses and a choker. 

Sleeveless Jacquard White Dress (Back view) - I love the small details at the back

Rhinestone Sun Black Chokers Necklace - the pendant is so nice! If you are wearing it, kabog mo lahat ng nakachoker! Hahaha 

The verdict:

Zaful.com has a lot of variety of clothes, bags, shoes and accessories. It took me a few hours before finalizing my items. I also love their off shoulder and maxi dresses. I got the simple dresses that I could wear in the office. The size I choose was XL hahaha to be sure, I am not skinny obviously. I am happy that both of my dress fits right especially in the shoulder. I need few alteration for the blue dress because in the waist part it is too loose or I could wear a belt. The delivery of the product was fast too. I thought it will take 15 to 30 days. It took them more or less a week to deliver it at my house. That will be a plus points! 

The only disappointment I have is the quality of the fabric. It is not a 100% cotton. However if you live in a cold country it won't be your problem. Because my only concern is I will not be able to wear it if the sun is so high and the heat is scourging hot. I will have a perspiration at it's finest. Hahaha All in all, I am happy with the products I received. I will rate them as... 

3.9 stars out of 5 stars




Last June 29, 2016, I got engaged with my beau for 5 years. Yey! Hahaha Another milestone was achieved with our relationship. He proposed at The Nest in Vivere Hotel, Alabang. It was a simple yet sweet moment. Somehow, I have a hint of his little sweet gesture for me. But then again, I am still a bit surprised on how he delivered his speech. Haha Awkward nya eh! Charot! I mean nervous. Before the big moment, let me start from the top... *dreamy effect please* 

That same day, I was not feeling well. I almost stayed at the clinic the whole day. I have sore throat, cough, colds and UTI too. My day was getting better, right? Guest what? The following week, my cough was not just an ordinary cough it was pneumonia. Anyways, that's another story. Hihi There was also an event on my office. It was our welcome slash blessing of our new office. We had cocktails and special number. I was too sick to function that day. I did not even finished the event, I went straight to Vivere hotel for our dinner. Btw, grab drivers cancelled my request for the nth time before the right driver arrived. I somehow want to faint that day. Haha God is good. The driver who fetched me was really accommodating. I am really sorry for not giving you 5 stars because the grab app crashed. If ever you read this, 5 stars for griffindors. Lelz

When I went up to the rooftop, I saw him in the side of the window with the wonderful view to look at. Unfortunately, it was raining and the raindrops was splashing on our faces. So we need to transfer to other table, in the middle and almost beside the band. Hahaha We started eating.. yummm yummm yummm..



Then again, the rain just keep on splash because of the wind. We ask for other place to stay. That time, we were inside. It was nice because we have privacy than before. We ordered our desserts. Mango creme brûlée and he ordered a coffee. I was busy snapping. Then, when I am done with the filters and sh*t. I saw him with the ring. My brain cells panic for a while. 



I said.. "Now na yan?" Hahaha He said, "Will you marry me?" With a doubt, I said "YES! Saan speech mo?" Hahahaha I looked at the ring, simple yet stunning and shiny. Bet ko! Hihi Then, he told be the story on how he started liking slash loving me since high school and how it never changed. Ganda ko bhe! LOL. Moreover, while we are having our moment, teary eyes na nga kami. The an expected.. the waiter came with the dessert. Ayun. Sira moment. Hahaha Ayun. Engaged na ako! Saya lang! Now we are preparing for the wedding, so maybe I will posting my wedding preparations in my blog. Hihi

Today, please welcome me to the world of Titahood. Yes, let us make this day, an official day that I am really accepting that I am in the stage of Titahood. Instead of posting #OOTDs, damn girl! I am posting a review about an appliance. A juicer to be exact from Moulinex

One day, I woke up and realized I need to change my lifestyle and corporate more of veggies and fruits in my diet. I want to lose weight in an healthy way. So I decided to buy a juicer and make it a lifestyle. Another reason for buying a juicer is instead of buying detox juices for around 2,000Php and can be consumed for only a day or two. Why not buy and create my own juices? Right? I will saving few bucks than buying detox juices every now and then. It would be costly.

Here is the huge box.


When you open this, ta-da! The juicer it self.


The white on the left side that would be the part where the extracted fruits or veggies will go, the unusable and can be already thrown away.. Then, the silver round blade, this is where the magic happens. It is the one juicing the fruits while spinning.


It is really simple and easy to use.


The ingredients I used are cucumber, apples, lemon, celery and ginger. 


The juicing starts! 


The finish product!

Verdict:

This is easy to use. Heavy duty compare to other juicer I saw at the mall. Some juicer cannot juice a carrot but this one can. I received some freebies such as ecobag, jersey and a booklet for recipes when I purchased this juicer. However, when it is turned on it is really noisy and scary in a bit when you drop the ingredients. 

My mom also told me that Moulinex brand is really durable and it could last for years. It is alright to invest for an appliances that could last for years. It means every penny counts. Some people say, slow juicer is better but it is expensive. I only have a small budget so this is only juicer I could I afford for now. I have no regrets. I am a customer that can be easily be pleased. I will give this a thumbs up. This cost around 4000Php ++. I bought it in SM appliance store.
