Out of This World

I didn't direct my life. I didn't design it. I never made decisions. Things always came up and made them for me. That's what life is.
B. F. Skinner

Out of This World3

Due to the heavy schedule, I have been lacking on my blog post especially outfit of the day posts. I really expected that as soon as I completed school I would be able to focus more on my blog. However, in life nothing ever goes as planned. So, after a very long two months, I have finally post an outfit post. RIght now, I am trying to increase the quality of my photos so the process is taking a bit longer than I anticipated.

Out of This World5

Also, I recently started investing on more dress and this is one of them. By now, (if you have been following me for a while) you would have already known that I dislike wearing body fitted clothing pieces (such as bodycon dress). But I decided to go out of my comfortable zone and started wearing more fitted pieces. This dress is a sample of my new fashion conquest.


What do you think of this look?

My P&G Sampling Party with #BzzAgent


No matter how old you are , everyone tends to have a set of house chores. Surprisingly, I never complain about doing my daily house chores, since I am a neat freak. I literally get annoyed when I see a small crease on my bed. Over the years, I have been trying my best to stop being too neat sadly it never tends to work. When I see a speck of dust in my room, it annoys to bits and soon I end up reorganizing my whole bedroom.

So, recently when BzzAgent contacted me about the P&G Sampling Party, I decided to get onboard right away. I have been using P&G products for years so I was something I was extremely comfortable about. From Pantene products, Tide, Swiffer and Mr Clean. These were all items I tend to use on a daily base. P&G has helped me to ease my daily life with these wonderful products.



In the recent package I received:

Tide Pods



This particular detergent removes stains as well as brightens clothings. It is extremely easy to use, all you are required to do is throw one of these with your dirty laundry. This pod reduces the struggle of measuring the amount of liquid detergent and it contains three different types of clean agents all in one (from detergent, stain remover and brightener).

Swiffer Dusters




Rather than using feather duster to dust furnitures, the P&G package contained swiffer dusters that moved gently through surface and pass through many small areas to remove dust. My father loved the product so much since he was able to clean his television area without moving anything.

Mr. Clean Erasers


I love these magic eraser, it has been one of most favourite products of all time. I love painting and during my stages of painting I tend to make huge messes around my place with unexpected artwork in random areas such as my room wall to the basement wall. My parents were never pleased with these messes I made (even through I tried to explain to them these were common in an artists home). Anyways, during time such as this the magic eraser came in handy and I was able to remove all my painting mess. 

Pantene


I love long hair and I tend to take good care of it since I want my hair to be thick and long. Therefore, shampoo and conditioner are key and last November I dyed one tiny strand of my hair chestnut brown. So, to make sure the damage of dying doesn't increase I have been using pantene pro products for ages.

Olay


Bodywash, it is one of my must have products and I tend to use ultra hydrating body wash. The Olay body wash contains shea butter and tends to give my skin a hydrating softness.

Old Spice

No comments, towards this product other than the fact my brother took both of them right out of my hands as soon as I opened the package.

P&G is part of every Canadian's daily lifestyle and P&G has been generous to supply me with several sample boxes, which I was able to share with  members of my family and friends to hear their own opinion on P&G products.

P&G product can be purchased at any Canadian store and thank BZZAgent for this opportunity.

*I received these products complimentary from BzzAgent and P&G for campaigning purposes.

Blazing In Style - Street Style (Featuring StyleMoi)

It's been awhile, since I have been active on blogger. If you already follow me on any other social media you would had already know that in the past few weeks, I have been extremely busy with work, preparing for graduation and etc. This past few weeks has been a hectic week with great life lessons. Some are extremely brutal and devastating but to be successful in life; one must face many obstacles. Well, that been said, the weather in Toronto has been awful. Last weekend, I was at the Blue Jays game wearing a dress and today I am wearing my winter coat since it's snowing. You can never trust the weather in Toronto. 

Anyways, recently I have been rocking the office wear items such as trousers, suits, dress shirt, pants and etc. In all the office wear clothing items my most favourite pieces are the blazer/coats.
I love wearing blazers as a daily essential, so here are some ways to style your blazers. In this post, I decided to style some of my favourite looks from celebrities.  

 All the blazers/coats used in this post are from an online store called Stylemoi 

Here are some of the streetstyle:

Charmed Memories (Featuring SOUFEEL)

It's great to reminisce about good memories of my past. It was enjoyable when it was today. So learning to enjoy today has two benefits: it gives me happiness right now, and it becomes a good memory later.
George Foreman

Being able to remember the past is like reliving your favourite moments over and over again. Memories consists of bad and good; negatives and positives; however due to your current consciousness many tend to relive and recycle their positive memories and store away their negative memories. Memories are like building block and each day they tend to get bigger; however there are some special moments in life that makes a large impact in an individual's life. Graduation, marriage, birthday and many more events are milestones in an individual's life. Theses milestones and special memories can be placed in a form of a charm in a bracelet.

I was recently contacted by SOUFEEL to collaborate with them for a review.

I have never been a fan of charm bracelets, since I believe that collecting charms would take forever. On the other hand, just recently during the month of February, my sister brought me a Pandora bracelet with a charm that states "My Special Sister" and now you will never see me leave the house without my bracelet. I started loving the concept of charm bracelets since it a method of using this simple bracelet to tell a story of your life, your dreams or your wishes. I love to wear simple accessories and charm bracelets are the perfect piece.

Similarly, the bracelets from SOUFEEL offer the same quality as the big brands such as Pandora, at a more than reasonable price. The bracelet and the charms arrived well packed each charm wrapped individually and placed neatly in a black case. These jewels are made out of sterling silver (925). Plus, most importantly the good news is that Soufeel charms fit perfectly with Pandora bracelets. 

Plus, Mother's Day is just around the corner and if you are looking for a unique/memorable gift this year then check out SOUFEEL. Also, Chamilia bracelet with the lower price and mostly recommended by many buyers. Plus, they have launched lots of Spring New Arrivals on website and the new registered customers will get 20 points which mean saving money. And the best part is that they offer free shipping worldwide with orders over $50 and 365-day return and exchange guarantee.



For the review, I choose the 
"SOUFEEL Charm Set



Each of the charms in this "SOUFEEL Charm Set" had a special connection to me. It literally tells my story... Yes, it's "My Lyfe ; My Story"



illustrates my love for coffee and yes, I can't live a day without coffee.
Plus, I drink two cups each day (a day without coffee is a day of disaster)



The second charm: "Pink CZ Microphone Dangle Charm 925 Sterling Silver"
I am a quiet individual however if I starting talking
(you can't stop me until I made my point... true words from my family)



Third charm: "Love Bag To Shop Charm 925 Sterling Silver"
Not a huge fan of shopping, however I am now a fashion blogger who spent most of my weekend going through online websites for fashion content



Forth charm: "Silver Heart Shape Dangle Charm 925 Sterling Silver"
Love... The missing piece of the puzzle
(I am nothing without my family's love and support)



Final charm: "Pink Heart Charm 925 Sterling Silver"
Represents my life... each day is a "Brand New" Day



Together they form...
"My Lyfe ; My Story"

Lens Village (EOS Dolly Eye Pink) Review

Last year, I got an opportunity to work with the online company called Lens Village to conduct a product review on two of their lenses. Once again, I have received an opportunity to work with Lens Village again and this time around I will be reviewing a vibrant pink lenses. I was really excited to try out these lenses out!

For the product review I chose the do a review on 
Lens Village (EOS Dolly Eye Pink) Contact Lenses.



DollyEye V209LB Pink Lens
The Dolly Eye sounds just like what it is. It gives your eyes the color like a doll’s eye. Not just color it also makes your eyes look wider. It’s available in blue, violet, green, brown, grey and pink colors. Get ready to dazzle with your doll eyes. These not only make your eyes beautiful and attractive but also keep the relaxed throughout the day so that you feel energetic and confident.

And down below are photos of me wearing them. Also, for these pictures I decided not to put any makeup on to emphasis more on the lenses rather than the eyes.

I have never been a fan of the colour pink, however I decided to a risk this time and decided to review the EOS Dolly Eye Pink lenses. I particular stay away from this colour but I love taking risks. This particular pair is not the daily go to lenses however is you are willing to make a mark; this is definitely a colour for you.. I would definitely be rocking this colour more often, I know for a fact that I won't be wearing this lenses out on a daily basis. But on some special events where I feel like making my mark; theses lenses will be my go to item. The lenses are really comfortable and they doesn't dry out fast like my regular contact lenses. Plus, it comes with a cute animal case, which always attracts me. Furthermore, I would recommend this company and this Lens Village contact lenses to everyone, since I am happy customer and reviewer.

Oversized!! (c/o Firmoo Glasses)


Today I'm reviewing a pair of glasses from Firmoo. In the past, I had an opportunity to team up with Firmoo and once again in 2015 I was able to collaborate with them for another review. They offer so many different types of frames and you can even add your prescription to the pair that you pick. Or if you just want a pair of glasses as a fashionable piece, you can order them without prescription, as well.



"Firmoo is the world's most popular online eyeglasses store. Vision and Fashion the Frugal Way is the ultimate goal of Firmoo, so it has always committed itself to providing customers with high-quality and fashionable eyewear at the most affordable prices. Years of expertise in optical industry enable firmoo.com to offer varieties of prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses in a frugal way and to be the ultimate fashion events guide. Since the establishment of our company, we have served over 300,000+ customers and now we also have 470,000+ fans on facebook. We have always been committed ourselves to offering customers the best quality products at the most affordable prices, 85%~90% lower than that in the brick-and-mortar optical stores. Moreover, all our glasses are free for first-time customers."

The pair of glasses that I choose were the: (P2720)


Recently, I have been in love with big oversized glasses and this particular pair from Firmoo is definitely my favorite ones. In the past few days, I have been extremely busy with all the events and I haven't had anytime for myself to get dressed up in the mornings. However, these pair of glasses has been my new best friend and I have been able to wear them during my busy days. 

Also, to all my lovely followers & readers: Firmoo wants to spread their love to others, by offering free glasses to new customers.  Make sure you check out the fine print to see how the program works (and you do have to pay for shipping).  Or if you're a blogger who is interested in reviewing a pair of glasses, they seem really interested in doing that, so get in touch! Overall, I am in love with these glasses and since it midterms right now I tend to be wearing them more often. Plus, after my midterms are done I will be doing a "Wearing Now" post with these glasses so stay tuned for that post.

Check out the website FIRMOO and tell me what your favourite glasses?

So, spread the word to your friends, tell their friends and tell their friends’ friends about this wonderful offer.
Have fun shopping and I hope all of you have a fantastic day!
