ZFiles: Zalora for Kids Too!

Sometimes it's hard for a parent to buy clothes for their children especially when it comes to pants and shoes.  For shirts it's just easy and everybody knows that. My daughter Mishka and my son Tristan could be tagged as Gingersnaps models, because 90% of their shirts and pants come from the said store. And now I'm glad that Zalora.com.ph has Gingersnaps too. That way I'll just browse and not exhaust myself from going to the mall with the two kids running here and there. Convenience and hassle free is what Zalora offers you and satisfaction sinks in when you see their sophisticated Zalora box being handed over to you by a courier service staff.

Now let's look at other Gingersnaps apparel prospect for my kids. What my kids have in their closet are more of printed shirts and plain jeans. I have never bought my daughter a skirt or dress from Gingersnaps, so here's what I wanted to purchase next for my Mishka.

Brand: Gingersnaps
Rose Ruffle Tulip Dress

Brand: Celestina & Co.
Two tone Bow, great for Gingersnap's white dress 
Price: P90.00

Brand: Gingersnaps
Model: Jersey Tee Stripes with Aster Flower Print

This tee (up) goes well with this floral skirt (below).
Brand: Gingersnaps
Floral Gingham Full Skirt
Description: This above the knee skirt with red and purple floral 
combination in a whole blue printed gingham skirt is perfect for 
your daughter's party gigs.
Price: P549.75

Brand: Periwinkle
Model: Trip 11 Skirt
Price: P745

Perfect Partners
Brand: Florsheim Kids
Model: Ballet Brown with Pink
I just love pink and brown, it makes one's skin lighter.

So many girls' apparel and accessories to choose from. If only I can purchase it all for my daughter I would. Maybe one at a time.

Now let's check on the 'for the boys' items on Zalora.

My son, like my daughter, always wear shirts so I think this would be a new look for him.

Brand: Gingersnaps
Model: Gingham Short Sleeves Polo
Price: P929.75

Brand: Gingersnaps
Price: P479.75

Every time I visit Zalora, I'm having mixed feelings; happiness because I really love to go on shopping and I'm sitting here doing the what-you-call 'window shopping', excited every time I see an item I like and I place it on my wishlist, hopeful that one day I will click that buy button and my wish will come true.

what's bugging me right now...

It's just so sad, I had to share it here. I wanted to help my Aunt who just had breast cancer recurrence. The specialist said that chemotherapy is needed immediately and so they are processing the documents, results etcetera, for the scheduling of chemo. I talked to her this morning and she is crying so hard,I really wanted to help her.

This is her photo taken just 3 weeks ago, her hair just started growing and she will lose it again with the treatment.

Auntie Letty on the right..
her fb page just in case you want to check her

Taken last January with her family, her son is just 12 years old (had a mistake on age)
, this was our family reunion, she was bald then

I have asked some famous bloggers on how can my blog help my Aunt for her chemo, I'm waiting for their reply.   My dear readers, can you give me some advises how can I do some fund raising by using my only means of communication outside these four corners of our room. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I have seen some donation campaign on some blogs sidebar.. I wanted to add something like that here but I don't know how. Maybe a dollar or two for a donation would help my Aunt, if many kindhearted people would donate it will definitely be less financial burden for our family.

A Herceptin vial costs P40,000 plus here, and she needed two vials on her chemo every three weeks. She works at the Department of Justice in the municipality of Pateros Metro Manila. She just reports for work if her body allows her to, but now she has so much going on her body. My Auntie Letty is a fighter, she's a strong person in nature, never you can see her cry , but she's vulnerable this time, hearing her cry over the phone breaks my heart. She told me she can't tell others of her current situation that why I first told our relatives through our Facebook group page.

I hope soon everything will be better again for my Auntie, we love her so much. It's not time yet. Not yet. Not now. Not in 10 years. She has a lot to offer, and dreams for her 12yr old son. She's more or less 52 years old and told me she doesn't want to go and leave us... that's why she's fighting.

I wanted to help her. Please help me help her. I don't do things like these but for my Aunt's health and welfare and life, I will beg.

Mikayla's Boutique offers wide variety of apparel for women like the famous Korean fashion dresses; kids dresses; also shoes such as Kara, famous Marikina shoe line; Strip-it Hair waxing products;bags & satchels, gift and novelty items, accessories, cosmetics and many others.

Here are some of Mikayla's Boutique bestseller items:

Strip It Sugaring Kit
The best ready-to-use hair removal sugaring in the Philippines
I'll try this on my legs. I heard this Strip it product is easy to use and leaves skin smooth. 

Indulgence Body Essentials
Underarm Care whitening and healing

Made-to-Order Flats
Loving this one, but I don't wear flats, gives me cramps. 
I might add some heels on this (",)

Really cute dress perfect for slim figured ladies.
 I have a favorite dress on their collection and I hope they have my size.

Aren't these items a must-have? So proceed to now to Mikayla's Boutique and start ordering and owning their lovely products.

Coming Home to Mandaue Foam

I always wanted to have a complete set of furniture and fixtures in our home.  My two kids and I would just stay the whole day inside our bedroom. We can't go down to play in the living room or eat at the dining table for some reasons. But I really wish to have a house of our own and enjoy the four corners of it, every bit.

While browsing the Mandaue Foam website, I have created a wishlist, include the ones I blogged about here,  just in case we transfer to a new place. I know Mandaue Foam is one of the famous and very reliable when it comes to furniture. Elegance, quality and comfortableness are some of the things that I look for in a furniture and I think Mandaue Foam products has it all.

Your home, your imagination! 

I do believe on Mandaue Foam's tagline because it is where everything comes true. Their products complete a home and satisfy your imagination. I know that one day, what I have in my wishlist would come true. To share with you some of it , here you go...

Some of you might think, why a mirror? Well, my dear readers I don't have a mirror in our bedroom and for me who's always indoors, this will remind me that I have to look good especially if hubby comes home from work, I don't want to look messed up and old. (",)

Another one on my wishlist:

I always wanted a place for me to work on while doing my blog. A combination of these two would make it possible. It's a relief having to sit on this comfortable chair with a perfect table and lighting, I bet it would keep my creative mind-juices flowing continuously

Lastly this king size bed. Elegantly designed, but all that matters to me is its size, because currently we're using a queen size bed, and we're four on it, and the kids are growing, I always sleep on my side to the edge of the bed because my son would keep on filling in himself to any space that's between us, and sometimes my daughter would sleep like she's the only one on the bed with legs and arms widely spread. Good thing my husband sleeps in the same position until he wakes up. I remembered two months ago I fell off the bed, my hips hurt.

It was really nice looking at these beautiful furniture and it makes me imagine owning them and enjoying every bit of it.  If you want some great finds for your home, try visiting http://mandauefoam.com.ph 

By the way, please watch this new Mandaue Foam TVC, sweet and fulfilling! 
Indeed, Mandaue Foam, Your Home, Your Imagination!

I Love - SodaStream Giveaway - US Only

My husband and I are MAJOR soda lovers. We spend an endless amount of money feeding our Mountain Dew and Diet Pepsi habits. I was extremely excited to get the goodies pictured above. I have always been curious about the SodaStream and have heard it is a great way to conserve money rather than continuously buying 12-24 packs of soda at the store. **The advantages of SodaStream's Home Carbonation System include:
  • Convenience: No need to carry heavy bottles from the store. The SodaStream system is simple to use and requires no batteries or electricity.
  • Environmentally-Friendly: SodaStream is an "Active Green" solution that minimizes the huge eco-footprint caused by the manufacture, transport and waste of plastic bottles.
  • Variety: SodaStream offers over 100 flavors to suit everyone’s taste. Regular, diet, natural, fruity flavors, ice tea, energy drinks, sport drinks, tonic and many more.
  • Space Saver: No need to store bottles of beverages or empty bottles for recycling in your home.
  • Personalization: Make drinks just the way you love them… more bubbles, less bubbles, sweeter or lighter, even create your own flavor!
  • Family Fun: The system is quick and easy to use. It's fun for everyone and kids just love it!
  • Value for Money: Great savings compared to pre-packed carbonated water and beverages.
  • Satisfaction Guaranteed: SodaStream drinks makers are of extremely high quality and include a money-back satisfaction guarantee.
The eco-friendly features of this product are attractive to me. I have a family of four and it seems like we have a LOT of trash so minimizing our collection of cans and bottles is a great selling feature of the SodaStream. It is also SO incredibly easy to use. The machine has no confusing parts to put together or electrical equipment. You open the back and put the carbonator in, fill the bottle with water, twist it into place, push the button a few times to carbonate the water, untwist your bottle, pour your syrup in and that's all there is to it! The bottle makes one liter of soda and is reusable, so no bottles are going in the trash.

I tried the root beer and lemon-lime flavors. I must say, the SodaStream soda has a much more natural flavor than any soda I've ever tasted. The directions tell you to push the carbonator button three times. I had to push it five or six times to get it to a carbonation good enough for me but the flavor is great! Lemon-lime can be compared to Sprite for me but the difference in nutrition facts is outstanding.
The SodaStream syrups have a significantly fewer amount of calories, sugar, and carbs. You have to make sure your water is VERY cold before using the SodaStream. I stored a bottle of cold water in the fridge for a couple of hours and the soda tasted much more comparable to name brands. If the water isn't cold enough, I noticed the soda tended to go flat.
The SodaStream is also cost effective. You can shop on their Web site or at various retailers around the world (JCPenney, Target, Staples, Sears, and more). Every 10th soda mix you buy is FREE and each bottle of mix contains the equivalent of 33 cans of soda. These can be purchased for as low as $4.99. A 24-pack of soda cans here in Indiana costs around $6.99 ON SALE, so the SodaStream is extremely cost effective.
Will the SodaStream replace my Mountain Dew? Probably not, but it is a great "filler" or alternative to drinking an excessive amount of Mountain Dew. Plus I feel more comfortable letting my kids drink from it, because neither of them are allowed to have soda at this point in their lives due to the high sugar content. I can reduce my carbon footprint a bit with this nifty little machine too!
One lucky reader will receive a:
Fountain Jet Soda Lover's Start-Up Kit ($99.95) http://www.sodastreamusa.com/Fountain-Jet-Soda-Starter-Kit-P184.aspx
It includes: Fountain Jet – winner’s choice of color (black/silver, red/silver or white) 1 carbonating bottle, reusable for up to 3 years Reusable carbonator to fizz up to 60L of soda Variety 6-pack of popular sample-size flavors 3 full-sized flavors of the winner’s choice
Enter on the Rafflecopter below! Good luck!
a Rafflecopter giveaway
This giveaway is open to the U.S. only. Winner must respond within 48 hours or another winner will be chosen. The giveaway begins July 24 at 12:01a.m. and ends July 31 at 11:59p.m. Kara's Deals and Steals was given a SodaStream product to try and review. I am not responsible for shipment of the prize. I will report the winner's information to the sponsor. All opinions are 100% mine.
