Wardrobe Check #12: Black & White Ensemble

I seem to have a penchant for black and white theme lately. My social media presence will prove that as I have been filtering photos to make it look black and white. I just find it nice and a bit different from my usual.

Is it black or white?

Black & white ensemble

Today however, I didn’t do much alterations as my ensemble was black and white. I felt like wearing something funky so I thought a knee-length socks will do the trick; tunic with a thick jumper on top of it completed the whole ensemble.

Nothing dramatic.

The paparazzi in the form of my husband went to work undetected; he kept on taking snaps in all angles at every single opportunity. I should have known. Lol! 😂

Talikod-genic. Lol! 😂

Shameless Selfie #3: Birthday Present

I fancied taking a shameless selfie sporting the sunnies that was generously given to me as a present by a dear great blogpal on my birthday last year. I “felt” beautiful when I was staring back at myself in between snaps. This sunnies must have some magic on it. Lol!

What I Love About Winter

Three months of brutal cold winter chill had past. It was the coldest in 16 years in our neck of the woods. Now I am up for Cozy Winters Review before I look forward for a beautiful, hot summer.

What I love about winter is the cozy outfits- trench and leather jackets, ankle boots, long boots, scarves and the like. We couldn’t get to sport this kind of outfits had it not been for the cold season winter brings.

I am your tropical kind of girl but I warmly welcome winter for all the reasons stated above.

Wardrobe Check #11: Post-Pregnancy Outfits

It’s nearly two months since my last update here. I find it fitting to publish something old if only to keep this blog thriving. LOL!

This is an old dress of mine which became a favorite outfit going to work. It came especially handy pre and post pregnancy. And believe it or not, I also wore it till the seventh month of my pregnancy. That’s how functional this dress was for me.


It’s almost a month since I returned to work. I have not overhauled my wardrobe. I still heavily relied on my old clothing which only means I really need to shed off some pounds so I could wear them again. Lucky most of my clothes are made from stretchable fabrics, otherwise I would not be able to wear them at all. And READ: most of them were my clothes from the Philippines.


I never shopped here as much as I did in the Philippines. But when my son was born, I mostly shopped for him.

Ahh! Motherhood! :-)

Wardrobe Check #10: Preggy Me

I now officially resume my Wardrobe Check episodes for this blog after almost half a year of hiatus.

I requested for this photo to be captured after a doctor’s appointment on my 8th week of pregnancy. I justified that I felt beautiful despite the discomfort and pimples all over my face.


The Prince was more than happy to oblige, without complaining SUS!!! 😉

My Trusty Pair of Shoes

When I was 20 weeks pregnant, no pair of shoes would ever fit me. My swelling had gotten worse. It was so frustrating to say the very least. I kept looking around for one that could be comfortable for a pregnant woman like me that had ballooned triple times.

After a number of frustrating tries at various shops, I’ve finally found one for me to use at our Year-end Thanksgiving at Church. I was told not to wear high heels so a low heeled-shoes was a sound and wise option.

It proved to be useful and comfortable now as I speak 3 months post-childbirth.

Life is a Beach

My brothers had been performing for a couple of months now at the beautiful Island of Boracay. I was told they were happy that pace ilok is an essential part of their performance on stage each night.

It is undeniably true that members of the Kuerdas Band had immensely enjoyed the sun, white sand beaches of the Island, and the bunch of tourists that flock their show at night time.

It Does Matter

While we live in the other part of the world where it is beginning to get colder and winter is just around the corner once more, I can not help but recount the happy times in spring.

I come from a tropical country so a warmer weather is always looked forward to. One of the things we planned of doing when a warmer weather is fast approaching is doing outdoor activities like camping and picnic with friends or simply just trying to be sporty by going back to my only physical activity since I have settled down in Australia- walking.

Along with that is gearing myself up for proper outfits such as AvidMax Outfitters. Getting comfortable sporting this outfit is a must especially for my outdoor and walking activities. It makes the activities even more fun and enjoyable once geared up with comfortable outfits. I must say it does matter.
