Well, while I was feasting my eyes on glorious shoe sites online, I chanced upon something wonderful! No--they're not shoes. But right now, I think they're soooo much better!
Introducing, my favorite fashion find of 2009 (so far):
THE CLEAR SHOEBOX!
You know how we always try to organize our shoes but can't find the best way? Some even label their shoe boxes or put pictures of the shoes on the sides. But it still doesn't work! It's still so hard to look for that particular pair especially when you're in a rush! Also, putting your shoes back in their right boxes takes a LOT of time. In my case, they don't even go back to their right boxes anymore. hehe :P But since I'm turning a new leaf and getting more posh, sophisticated shoes, I can't go on my habit of not putting them in boxes lest I want them to get damaged. So you just know how happy I am when I found these perfect clear shoe boxes!
So I contacted the ones selling these here in Manila and found out that each box costs only 75php each! You can even get them for 70php for bulk orders. Wow. I tell you, I totally fell in love with these when I saw them. Soooo perfect!
You can contact them through:

In the beginning of its trailer, I have to admit, I didn't notice that it was Emma Roberts. Wild Child's story is sorta like Serena's in Gossip Girl. She's a rich girl living and studying in NY and is too bad of a girl. She commits mistake after mistake which becomes the reason why she has to be shipped to a different country and go to boarding school. Now, the difference of Wild Child to Gossip Girl is that it focuses on Poppy Moore's life in boarding school. What I'm looking forward to is how this all-American girl adapts to life in a country where people don't want her.
Can't wait to catch this, can ya? I can't wait too! ;)

I know I shouldn't really blame it on hormones but I can't! Majority of migraine sufferers are women and migraine attacks often coincide with menstruation which suggests a hormonal trigger! See? See? Argh. Well, I'm not here to rant. Because of my recent major migraine attacks, I found myself awake at dawn reading all about migraines. Here's what I found out:
1. Migraine attacks are triggered by food, hormones, weather or stress
2. Some symptoms accompanying migraine are: nausea, vomiting, visual disturbances, dislike for bright lights
3. A drop in blood sugar may bring on an attack (this I found really interesting!)
4. Early warning signals of a migraine attack includes: excessive hunger or thirst, exhaustion, or inexplicable mood swings
So with those information, I share with you the prescription for these nasty migraines!
1. Take plenty of light meals or have a hard candy in your bag to prevent a drop in blood sugar (a drop in blood sugar will make you feel like you're about to faint)
2. Eat food with ginger! Or boil it as tea (salabat for us pinoys!)
3. Eat plenty of oily fish such as salmon and mackerel (though the effect is not immediate)
4. Put anything cold on your forehead during attacks
5. Try to lie down with your back straight
6. Keep your eyes shielded from any bright light
1. Avoid the 4 c's: chocolate, cheese, citrus fruits and caffeine (this is sooo true! huhu)
2. Never drink alcohol especially red wine and port
3. DON'T DO ANY OF THE DON'TS! (haha, really!)
I cannot tell you girls just how hard it was for me to last a week like that. I could barely do anything else! I was feeling bad all the time! What makes it worse is that I had to stay away from the 4 c's which are actually some of my all-time favorites! No more caffeine or cheese? Are you kidding?!? hahaha :P Well, I'm keeping myself good and well so I'm being a good girl and following those prescriptions. But if it comes to worse, remember girls, there's always DOLFENAL *wink!

Basically, the thing to remember with fashion in 2009 is class. It's all about being feminine (but not too much), looking sophisticated and put together. Fashion is shifting from the laidback look to the more posh and glamorous (and rich $$$) styles.
Tailored pieces are a staple in every fashionistas wardrobe any day of any year. But it will be extremely in this year taking inspiration from outfits worn by our favorite celebrities like in Sex and the City, Lipstick Jungle and Gossip Girl. The thing with tailored pieces is that they are easily mistaken for ones that are worn in work but that's not really the case. Tailored pieces by definition are those that have clean lines and have their own form which gives illusion of shape simply because tailored pieces are actually those that were MEANT to be for men! So do you get what I mean now? Think blazers, coats, "stiff" shorts, dark pants, the works! It's easy now because these pieces have been given a more feminine vibe. Be a man. But a very sexy man.
key pieces: pencil skirt, blazer, button down shirt, slim belt
50's fashion are in this season with emphasis on ruffles, pearls, cinched waists, high waisted pants, and overall pin up girl "sexy" look. And oh, I'm seeing a lot of HUGE buttons making a comeback too so it's a cool trend to watch out for in stores ;)
key pieces: high waisted shorts/skirts, ruffled top, pearls, waist belt
Form fitting pieces are going to be very hot this year! And I'm not talking about skin-hugging pieces but more of tailored outfits that hug the body in the most flattering way. Think of cotton or silk fabrics that do NOT cling to the body, and instead DICTATES the shape. This year is about showing every girl's asset! The best way to do this of course is through beautiful and tailored dresses, tops and pants. So say goodbye to your baggy tops because their are sooooo last year! (haha, I love saying that)
key pieces: corset tops, cinched dresses, rompers
Navy colors will be hot in oh-nine! Blame it on the recently held American elections but the navy look is creating ripples in the fashion scene! There's going to be a lot of navy blues, reds, and whites everywhere! And of course, it all culminates into the "navy" costume with the rounded/triangular collar and slim fit waists!
key pieces: anything in navy blue, white or red, and a more polished look
Black is definitely back this year! ...and I couldn't be more glad! :P Classic styles in black are coming out. We're seen how black has deteriorated into a more punk genre in the past years but '09 will be seeing this color staple back with a vengeance! Think sexy, classy, and upper east side-ish styles :)
key pieces: blacks with embellishments, sequins, ruffles, big metallic buttons (think texture)
Leathers won't be too icky this season as we'd be seeing them in their most beautiful styles and designs! Patent leather will be big especially in accessories, bags and shoes. But what's interesting is the appearance of shiny faux leather leggings and jackets!
Purples and its entire family will be the hottest colors for the year!
Shoulder bags are also going to be big this year! And I'm talking about those vintage old styled pieces that have long straps! They can either be worn over the shoulders or across the body. The key here is to have really clean and simple looking pieces that would go with all your outfits and would not take attention away from them. So go take out the detachable straps of your shoulder bags and attach them again!
So there goes our 2009 PK fashion forecast! I am super excited for this year especially with all the classy styles that are emerging. Don't you just think the whole grunge, "just woke up from bed" is so last season already? I do.
Have a very fashionable 2009 PK girls! Here's to a brand new, and more classy you! :)
