New Season Sale at my favourite Store and my top picks...

If USA has Victoria secret then UK has Debenhams. It is the same idea though, a store that offers and sell varieties of brand names. From basic accessories down to a wide selections of finest footwear. You wouldn't wish to be anywhere else but Debenhams. That is how I always feel when I'm in the store. I can stroll around this specific shops from kids department to men. Not only that, they also have home wares and an arrays of furniture. Plus, a free wifi too as well as a canteen to those customers that will get peckish from browsing the entire floors. Mind you, shopping can get a bit tiring right? 
SO, Hurry and grab a bargain in Debenhams store for their new season event 25% in every departments as well as 10% in all beauty and fragrance. It is only up this Sunday (tomorrow) so don't miss out. 
Here's my top picks I captured while browsing along the stores. Oh, these are such an eye-candies to me:)
Heart this blazer by Julien McDonald oh so pricey
While I enter the store first thing I see was this captivating Blazer of Julien Macdonald. He is  one of the big designer names in the store. A little bit costly but that's because it's all made with quality. But then all big names are, right?
Retail therapy today Me likey Plum or burgundy My fave of all Suede All glam and glitz Autumn must-have And in pinky too I opted this in the end - can only afford one lol John carter #jimmy choo #fragrance #heart #Edhardy #fragrance#Diesel #fragrance#love #juicycouture #fragrance
Oh yes, all these are unfortunately not mine. Though I would say that I was lucky enough to grab some really good deal that day. I bought myself a two pair of shoes as well as perfumes to give to my sisters back in the Philippines. Oh, I would have grab Jimmy Choo's fragrance too but it is still a bit costly for me. But, I might be tempted enough to buy it later this afternoon. 

First Ladies Night out...

It was the 28th of July when I first went out with the ladies here in our new town. It's a woman's necessity to have a time off for herself to simply enjoy and have fun. Not every night, not every weekend at least once a month or every other month. Honestly, I was over the moon to have met these ladies whom have the same feathers as me, lol. Life is too short after all and an occasional ladies night outing would not hurt a knee. 

Besides a husband full support of me having fun with my mates, he is also my personal critics in regards to my outfits. Before I went out I have tried different dresses and this is the one that he most approved of. An animal print hem dress that I bought in Debenhams just a month before this outing happenned. I just added animal print belt to it and accessorised with this fashionable big stud rings as well as a pair of dangling earrings. And to complete the look I paired it with a pair of black wedges. Thought of something that I can easily walk and comfortable to wiggle around. So, what do you think did my husband chose well? 

Anyway, I had so much fun that night and looking forward for our 2nd night outing tonight to celebrate a friends's birthday. Bring on Saturday night!!

Btw, here's me along with these wonderful ladies. I'm the only Filipina and from left are; two lovely Indonesians ladies and the one in yellow is French girl who turned 20 that night. All fashionable in our own way. Love these girls!

The bridal Gown I almost buy...

I went shopping for Bridal gowns lately because someone close to my heart are to tie the knot. It was totally a surprised news for us all and for some reason they wanted to exchange vows as soon as possible.  Hence, before the end of the year. Imagine, how everybody panics in preparing for this occasion? Thus, a lot of pressure involves. So, this will be a challenging job for the couple to organise and make this all happen as quick as possible and as as successful. 

My bit is to find the bridal gown. Good thing, there are tons of Bridal shops that I can check in my town. So whilst browsing along the high street few days ago, I bumped into this Bridal shops just along our road and saw this stunning gown on display. I was totally captivated by it's simplicity and yet so elegantly designed wedding dress. I went it and ask for the price and oh, it was on half-priced sale. 

I guess not many people would choose to have their wedding in this freezing cold weather. If they could, they would wait in the summertime, as preferred by majority of the brides I know. Simply because they can then choose any wedding gowns they dream to wear on their big day. Be it a sexy tube gowns, a sleeveless hem dress, backless, or perhaps an off shoulder type. It is impossible to wear such during autumn and winter, right? Unless of course it is an indoors wedding. You wouldn't want to wear something like the picture shown below and then covered it up. It swill surely spoil the whole look. So, I guess it's one of the reason why this is on sale. 

Anyway, I was willing to buy it for her (the bride-to-be) as our wedding presents but she turned down my offer not because she didn't like the dress, its simply because of their church rules and regulations. Apparently, sleeveless or anything like (e.i.showing flesh) are strictly prohibited. Shame, but here we go! Just as well I asked and showed her first before buying it or it could have been another useless purchased. Oh well...

Tux Blazer

Posted at Lookbook, hype & Fan me if you like....

 Was out of the town the other week for exactly 11 days with the whole family for our end of season mini-break. But thought I'd pack more than I can wear but obviously did not this time. Usually, I pack almost the entire closet until hubby complains that we are over filling the car boot so definitely succeeded minimising our luggage for the first time. Even then, we managed 4 suit cases in total though I would stress that the other 2 were like a carry bags. Anyway, At least I didn't forget my new favourite Tux Blazer that I recently purchased like a month ago from Next store summer sale. Half-priced down it was and so I grabbed it straight away and to know that it was my sized was as delightful. Clearly, was meant for me ;-)

This was only the 4th day but seems I was already running out of clothes.  The only pieces left were my DIY denim and my white vest. I even borrowed my daughter's pair of ballet pump shoes that day. Should have wear a jeans as it was so windy but I only brought a pair and were dirty.

The necklace was all I got that matched the entire look. 

I think this outfits looks alright, but I warned you, that next post it's about this Tux again as I have wore it later that week and but completely restyled the whole look. Will post it soon ...

Thank you for your time to visit this blog:-) xx
