Be Stylish Without Spending A Lot: Plaid Coat, Mock- Neck + Skinny Pants

Look, I don’t think you have to buy expensive items of clothing to look presentable, stylish, or fashionable. You can be wearing the most expensive outfit, but if you don’t look good in it, what’s the point of that expensive tag price? I’m not sarcastic. I’m just being realistic! Hey, I don’t look good all the time, and that’s the reality. Also, I’m so careful about what to wear because of my 10-year-old son who critics my outfit if he doesn’t like it ♥♥♥.

Yesterday was a little chilly, and wearing a thick coat wasn’t necessary at all. You know, Louisiana weather, right? It could be Winter today, then the next day it feels like mid-summer! One crazy weather, I would say.

About this plaid coat, the material is light and soft. I was wearing a size XS. The mock-top, I had to get a size Small because the XS is a little too tight. It makes me feel like an egg roll (wrapped up so tight), lol! This Elasticized Waist Skinny Pants is true to size. I got the XS, and it’s perfect!

Sunday With Great Friends

We had a great Sunday at church yesterday morning. Powerful praise and worship. Most of all, listening to the word of God through our Pastor’s preaching – always the best part! So glad to also see some wonderful friends as well.

After the service, we headed out to Ate Nelda and Kuya Mike’s residence to have a lunch fellowship with friends and also a celebration for seeing Ate Rose and Irish again. They are now both residing in other states. So, we won’t be seeing them back for a while. Many thanks to Ate Nelda and Kuya Mike for opening their home for us and for all the delicious (masarap) food they prepared. It was a fun-filled and such a beautiful day.

Have you ever been to a Filipino get together? If you did, then you already know that we love to eat, laugh a lot, talk a lot, and sing karaoke, hahaha. If you haven’t yet, now you know, lol!

I NEED TO LAUGH: Today’s Funniest Quote Picks

Who else wants to laugh? I need it this morning. You want to know why? Well, if you are a mother who has little boys that do not get along with each other well, you probably understand why I need to laugh this very early morning. Getting up early to have them ready for school, fix them breakfast, and give them their school money to buy a snack and drink during recess time, however, when asking them one thing (and I mean one thing only), they wouldn’t listen without complaining first. Seriously? I remember growing up; I didn’t complain much like my kids now. Growing up, my parents and grandparents always reminded us of the words “obey first before you complain.” Most kids nowadays like to complain first before obeying. I don’t say that it happens every day, not it doesn’t. However, when it happens, it’s almost too much!

After I dropped them at their school, I was talking to my self while driving back home. I was telling myself that I need to laugh. I need something that will make me laugh to brighten up my morning. So, when I got home, I looked up for the funniest quotes online. There’s a lot of funny quotes I read, but these quotes below are the most hilarious. It worked! I laughed, and it lightens up my mood. I hope these quotes will make you laugh, as well. Have a beautiful and blessed day!

Don’t Tell People Your Dreams. SHOW THEM!

Hello everyone! How are you doing? I have been #MIA (missing in action) for a while due to so many things. Being a working mom is not easy. I’m sure all working moms out there can relate to this. Being a working mom, you seldom have time for yourself. Everything you do, you do it for your family and for your children (if you have any). And when you have supposedly “time for yourself,” well, you will still be doing stuff for your family. Anyway, it’s the reality of life, and I’m not complaining.

Anyway, I’m more grateful to God for everything that is happening in my life right now. It is very accurate; everything happens for a reason. So, I might be a very busy “working” mom, that’s because I have a dream. A dream not only for myself but for my children and their future, and also for everyone I love. And now, I’m back! Having my family as my inspiration, I’m so ready to face this new chapter in my life with a more positive attitude. Also, you’ll be seeing me blogging more often this time around, hahaha. I can’t wait to share you so many things that I always thought of sharing but didn’t because of doubt. See? #DOUBT kills your dream. Don’t let doubt stop you from achieving your goal. Be a go-getter!

Until next time,

Ester

My Belk Look: Y’all Come On Feel The Noise

Hello Y’all! How’s everybody doing? I hope you’re all in good health. Today, I’m sharing with you these two Belk tank tops. I love the graphic prints and I also loved the price. Guess what? Each cost under $10! I really wanted to get these styles in different colors but unfortunately, I couldn’t find them on their website.

I really love shopping at Belk because I always find something easy that I can wear. I’m talking about extra-small sizes that are “true to size”, Belk has it! Talking about great deals? Belk has it. If you’re like me who loves clearance deals? Belk has them. The Belk store in our area always has a bountiful clearance section, which is the first area I am drawn to visit every time I go there to shop.

Come On Feel The Noise Graphic Tank Top + The Superstar Legging

SALE! UP TO 80% OFF! HURRY ENDS SOON!


How’s your Saturday? Hope you had a wonderful day. My family had a great time today. We went to the park and let the boys played until they were tired to play more. Today, I’m sharing with you my latest picks. Not so much though! Went to my favorite store ( Belk ) to look for great deals. Belk always has great deals so if you don’t shop there, you’ll miss out a lot of great deals.

This “Come on Feel The Noise” graphic tank topby #TRUECRAFT is comfortable plus I got this tee for only $4.99! Babes, I’m not an expensive shopper. I look for something that I can wear, look good, and doesn’t cost much. Let’s be practical these days.

Now, about this legging, I’m wearing a size small. I wear extra-small but didn’t find my size. As you can see, it’s a little loose on me. The extra-small would be perfect. I love the material, it’s soft and comfortable! The only thing I don’t like about this white legging is the fact that it’s hard to keep it clean. Also, the length is a little too long for me. I’m only 4 foot and 11 inches. Overall, it’s all about how comfortable it is though.

A Pop Of Pink Flowy Dress In Winter

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I’m not a winter person. I really can’t stand cold. Even though I have been living in the United States for ten years, but I’m still a tropical person. However, I maybe don’t like the cold weather, but I love the winter fashion looks – from the boots, scarves, cardigans, coats and head caps.

I’m loving this High Neck Flowy Dress. The material is so soft and cool to my skin which I love the most. The fact that I can also wear this style in spring time is an additional points for me. The size I’m wearing here is extra-small. However, if you wear extra-small size you probably should get the “small” size. The extra-small size shoulder width is a little bit narrow. Not so much though, just a little bit.

ABOUT THE COLOR?

As a matter of fact, I was not a “pink color” fan, but that has changed after I got this dress. I realized that the pink color looks good on my skin. So, yay!! I’m pleased with that. I love that the style and the color of this dress go really with my furry scarf (the one I’m wearing here is sold out so I’m linking a similar one ), tan high heel boots, and this cute Brahmin crossbody bag ( this style is also sold out, I’m linking similar one here ).

Winter Fashion style.

Meet Daisy:Schnauzer + Havanese Breed

I always wanted to have a dog, but never thought that day would come. Sometimes, when Sean and the boys are not home, I feel so alone. The house is so quiet, and sometimes I talk to myself, lol. Have you ever felt that way when you’re alone? Well, that’s my case.

One day, Sean visited his family in Springfield, Missouri. At his parents house was a cute puppy. She was a rescue puppy. She’s a Schnauzer + Havanese breed. I didn’t know about her yet until Sean called me on the phone and told me about her. I was like “send me a picture of her, please”. When I received the photos that Sean sent me, guess what? I was like a little kid wanting for candies, hahaha. Right then, I asked him to bring her home. I was so excited!

My Dog Named Daisy

Meet my furry baby girl, Daisy. When she arrived home with Sean, I was not the only one who was so excited, but also my two boys who are 10 and 7-years-old. Their reaction was “mommy…..look, it’s a puppy!” We were so happy to finally met her.

Daisy made us smile and laugh almost all the time. She is such a sweetheart! Also, I never thought I would sleep with a dog beside me. Maybe she thinks she’s a human. We love her dearly! Whenever my boys are ready for bed time, Daisy knows that it’s time to say good night to them and she’ll get excited; jumping on their beds and licked their faces; wants them to scratch her tummy.

She is a blessing to us and we love her so much. She is so special. It warms my heart to hear my boys giggling all the time, and playing with her. We’re blessed to have her.

There are days that she goes with me to my kids school to pick them up. When she see the boys at the pick up area, she’ll wag her tail like it will never stop at all. Before, at the school pick up area, my boys would say “hi mommy” as soon as they get into the vehicle. Now, they’re like “oh my God, hi Daisy! Are you happy to see us, Daisy?” Am I jealous? Of course not! It makes me more happier to see my boys that happy. Bless their hearts!

Fun Day With My Dog

With her fluffy ears and wagging tail, how can I not smile? From the very first day, she always put a smile on my face and the faces of my family. It’s very true that there are benefits that dogs bring to our lives. Gosh, there’s never a dull moment in the house now.

Personally, petting her and talking to her helps me relax. Whenever I feel stressed ( everybody get stressed out sometimes ), I noticed that it wasn’t as bad as before. There is a big change in my mood since Daisy has been with us. She cracks me up all the time and I love it!
