Wedding Dress Trends

Let’s talk about one of my favourite topics to discuss, weddings. Weddings are always beautiful and one of its highlights is the bride’s wedding gown. There are a lot of new trends coming nowadays from the comeback of the sheer lace to the mermaid or serpentina cut.  How about you?  What would be your favourite style when it comes to gowns? To help you choose, I want to share with you these 2014 Wedding Dresses UK.

These would be my top picks and I will tell you why.

Ball Gown One Shoulder Tulle Sweep Train Lace Wedding Dresses 

The style of this dress was described as chic, modern, glamorous and dramatic. My favourite detail would be the accent on the shoulder. This gown reminds me of princesses in fairy tales and anyone who will wear it will definitely look like royalty.

Trumpet/Mermaid Sweetheart Lace Tulle Sweep Train Ruffles Wedding Dresses

My next choice would be this mermaid cut dress which accentuates the beautiful curves of a woman. There are not much details on the upper part of the gown but the bottom part explodes with glamour. I also love the sweetheart neckline to give more emphasis on the face of the bride.

Ball Gown Scoop Tulle Sweep Train Lace Wedding Dresses

And finally, here’s something which looks very simple and elegant at the same time. If you don’t want to show much skin, then sheer lace is the best for you. The upper part of this gown is accentuated by intricate beading and the lower part is pure tulle – which I love by the way. It looks soft and very feminine.

All of these dresses are absolutely beautiful and different from one another.  They caught my eyes right away but I’m sure you will find more which will suite your own taste when you check out this link: 2014 Wedding Dresses UK.

Tidebuy Golden Shoes Review

As of this time, I’m already too busy preparing for Faye's birthday on May. I'm conceptualizing and thinking of DIY projects to make her birthday celebration extra-special. One thing;s for sure now, the color motif of her birthday would be Blush, Beige and Gold. I chose these colors because they are elegant and dainty which fits our little princess. I can't spill much details just yet but everything's being worked out well. Even for our outfits, I already have some concepts in mind. I hope everything will go as planned.

Speaking of outfits, I already have plans of wearing gold shoes.. and I hope to find the perfect pair before May! As I was browsing Tidebuy's website, these babies caught my eyes.


I like the simplicity of this one. The thin strap on the ankle looks elegant and I love straps on heels because they make me feel secure that the shoes won’t fell off.

This stilleto also looks cute because of the gem accents in front. The heel height also looks shorter than the first so it’s easier to walk with this one.

What do you think of these two? They really look gorgeous! But I’m actually looking for a pair with more stable heels because I think I will be carrying Faye around on that day. May I find something like that but still fab at the same time. It’s still a bit early anyway


Banahaw Heals Spa Angeles: The Opening

Last Saturday, we were invited by our good friend Charmaine, to attend the blessing and opening of their newest business venture, the Banahaw Heals Spa Angeles. We were so excited to attend this event, not only to support our dear friend, but also to see her lovely baby Eli! I bet she will be a good buddy of Faye when they get older. Hehe! :)

Banahaw Heals Spa is located at 151 Casa Mitzi Bldg. 2F units 202-203, Sto. Rosario St. Brgy. Sto Domingo (near Carmelite and in front of Villa Angela), Angeles City. They are open everyday from 1pm to 11pm. Here’s a short background of their company:

"At Banahaw Heals Spa, Your Healing and Relaxation is our Concern. Experience the original BANAHAW Ambiance that will surely rejuvenate you body, mind and soul.

Once we arrived the place, we were welcomed by this signboard showing the services they offer together with the prices.


Few minutes before the blessing ceremony started, we had a quick tour of the facility and checked the rooms inside. The place has a good and relaxing ambiance with soothing music and calming scent all over. I’m so excited to try their services soon together with hubby! 


Look at the cute presentation of their towels. Hehe! Reminds me of waterlilies.


And so the blessing ceremony began at around 12 noon.


The occasion was graced by Angeles City Mayor Ed Pamintuan, which also performed the ribbon cutting.


Here’s the family of the owners together with Mayor Pamintuan.



After the ceremonial toss of rice and coins, it was soon followed by a hearty lunch. Happy tummy for everyone!


Oh and here’s a photo of our two families. The babies don’t cooperate with the camera as usual.


And finally, here’s a quick look of their services. We are so excited to come back and try some of their massages! I’ll be surely posting our experience here. Please also like their Facebook page here: www.facebook.com/banahawhealsspaangeles. Till my next blog post!
