Lifestyle Tips #1: Where to buy Plus Size Clothes (Philippines)

On my last post Print + Print one of the readers (hope i would know her/his name though :) please!!! ) suggested to post about where we can buy or where do i shop clothes for plus size. And today i will share my TOP 5 where i usually bought my clothes. 

TOP #1- Erzullie 
Of course one of the reason why i love this, because we designed all of our merchandise. Surely, we based our product on the "needs" of other plus size to have on their closet.  We are producing from outerwear to basic tops to cater more plus size needs and styles :)
Price range: (Php300-1,500) 

These are the tops that i have worn for casual days. I usually pair with shorts or jeans and flats. So comfy!!

TOP #2- SM Department Store
I must admit they have a lot of choices for Plus Size like me. Most of my jeans i bought are from SM

Price range: (Php600-900)

TOP #3- Surplus Shop  
Cardigans and Sandos are bought from Surplus Shop  

 Price range: (Php350-600)

For full figured woman... most of my jeans are stretchy and skinny fitted, for me to show my curves perfectly and for the Cardigan, i usually paired with dresses and sando :) 

TOP #4- Bazaar Finds (Ward88, Pippa Clothing, Cultus Couture)
Well, since our pop-up store mainly in bazaar, i do visit of these store for new arrival or collection for plus size. Most of their pieces are very comfortable in a reasonable price. 

Price range: (Php350-900)

In Ward88- most of my shorts are bought from them. They cater more on casual and shorts for plus size. Pippa Clothing and Cultus Couture however, are basically for regular size but... The Blazer and Cardigan are stretchy and actually they are perfectly fit for me.  

TOP #5- Thift House/Shop
I really do love shopping in Ukay-Ukay. You can find a lot for us! i mean, its cheap and fashionable.

As you can see i do have a lot of Blazer or Outerwear. :) Its really good investment for every woman living in the metro. I can wear it in casual and smart casual.

That's it!!! :) hope i answered your needs for fashion finds :)

Curves with Love,

Little time and a Big fun (Panglao Island Bohol Trip)

Me and my bestfriend loves "beaches"!!! and the food around the resorts. Then, last year... while watching DVD and browsing net. We spotted a 50% discount flight to Bohol via ZestAir
And Boom!!! without hesitating we booked for 2 going Tagbilaran City.

 Stayed there 3days and 2nights but because of limited flight available we came to Bohol before lunch and we departed early in the morning after 1 day. 
Luckily, we found accommodation at the very nice location front beach away from noisy crowd area and the best of all its affordable! :) and they actually have their own thai restaurant outside. Its Incredibly delicious!

Isis Bungalows Resort (Pathways)

Buttered garlic Shrimp, fresh iced Tea, Iced Latte and Chicken satay
Me and the shore! :)

Rai and Shore  (rain and shine hehehe)
The next day morning, we went to see Dolphins- Balicasag Island to Virgin Island. We rented a boat for(Php. 1500)

*What to see in Balicasag Island and Virgin Island*

At Balicasag- most of the people go there for snorkeling and fish feeding (like we did). A lot of fishermen offered boat going to (fish sanctuary) for around (Php. 250) and for Snorkeling gear for rent(Php. 450) and boat for just fish feeding (Php. 250) plus bread for the fish (Php. 20). Also you can request to the "manongs" to catch Starfish for you :) but of course, bring them back to the water.  
At Virgin Island- a long island with a lot of sea-urchin :) that's why they just allowed visitors to take pictures or just stay on the shore. They don't allowed you to swim!

 After a half-day of trip we just stayed inside our room to rest :) and again Swim in the afternoon! That night we actually walk around the Panglao Island (thou its not that huge) Surprisingly, we saw a lot foreigners walking and drinking all over the place (its like we are in a different country literally!)
