A fairy tale hot wedding dress

The extremely long train looks dreamy from every single angle. I found this stunning wedding dresses that fit the bill. The ruched bodice will look good both in photos and in person. This gown features an embellished sweetheart neckline and a mermaid tulle skirt that glitters. Why not have a try?

Strapless isn’t your only option when it comes to sexy bridal gowns.A lace top with backless design feels equally major and never a bad thing. I really like the goddess look.

Many of the celebrities in the Met Gala red carpet show wear see through gowns. The shoulder and top part design is inspired by Kim or Rihanna's sexy see-through gown. But this dress is much more classic, and much appropriate for a wedding day.  

Lace Lace Lace
If you have your heart set on lace or look for totally girly on your wedding dress. Then this dress would be the perfect fit. This lace-covered fit-and-flare dress with long sleeves shows off your shape and will wow all the wedding guests.

Lace again

Hollywood stars have been working on backless sexy look on the red carpet. Lace wedding dress with open back design can work for your big day, too, and you don’t need a celeb bank account to make it happen.

What do you get when you combine a off the elegant shoulder neckline, a luxury ruffle, and a romantic train? I can only say a world a-ma-zing! And cannot imagine how would I look like if I wear this dress. Will I look like a princess?

This gown is going to enhance your A-cup. It's never wrong with something plunging and lacy by just keeping the top fitted and sexily streamlined.

Happy Wedding Anniversary

I have written something about our first and second wedding anniversary. It seems like a tradition to share something on the memorable day.

Youthful or inexperienced, I am learning to be a good wife and a good mum. I see decade-long marriages fail from our loved ones. Marriage is trying and growing together and growing to be a better woman is often uncomfortable or even painful. I have learned from the film Cinderella. “Be kind and have courage.” I am trying to be less selfish, more considerate, and always generously with love and kindness in our marriage.

When I think about the little anniversaries in our life, our first date, our first kiss, the first time we said “I love you”, I think I might enjoy these small markers even more than our wedding anniversary. These things are the things we’ve built everything on. And later, the first time I introduced him to my family; our first weekend away, our first fight.I of course don’t have most of these dates jotted down, but when I think back to them, I can pull them out of the depths of the past decade and recall specific details if I try hard enough. The skirt I wore. I can even remember what he write in the letter from him.

To have someone who sees you and gets you and accepts you, who has seen the very worst parts of you, who has been everything to you, and who has let you be you, to be the best you you didn’t even know was inside of you…that is a special, special thing. 3 years represents so much- hard work and good times (and bad times) and everything in between. It’s a period of great growth and change. It’s a deep, passionate, quiet, comfortable love. It’s holding someone in your arms, in all of their flawed imperfection, and saying “I see you. All of you. And I love you all the same.”
I am not going to write a blog post to show off the happy marriage life as happiness is always in the other’s eyes. Instead, I am going to write the little things I love and the small things that count.

Ahem, and so I’ll begin.

Dear Ethan (Cheng, Orange, Husband),

I love that you’re a good dad to Ivan, though he clearly likes me more than you. Boys love mama when they’re still kids. He is learning from you everyday. I am glad of that as you would be a good example.

I love that you drive me to and from work for three years.

I love that you don’t complain when I let my dirty or clean clothes pile up in laundry baskets or in our bedroom.

I love that you are good at cooking lobsters. And when you tell me not to eat all of them after you finish the cooking. (Wink)

I love that you do me a favor when I am carrying a heavy shopping bag.


I love that, for the most part, you get me.



I received a bunch of red roses for the first wedding anniversary. I would be excited if I can receive a gift for the 3rd wedding anniversary as there’s no gift for the second anniversary. Keep your expectations to a minimum and you’ll be less disappointed that way.

Wedding Dresses 2015 Designs inspired by Emma Watson Red Carpet Looks

From catwalk looks straight to red carpet outfits, Emma Watson is above all a question of style. This post is about to share the red carpet looks of Emma from the opening day. From my point of view, she actually likes doing her own makeup. Not saying she doesn't get help, but she likes natural beauty most, and only partakes in fashion for the joy of it, not to be trendy.

In 2010 at the Met Gala in New York

In 2012 at The Perks of Being a Wallflower premiere in Hollywood

Emma Watson adds a hit of texture to her ever-evolving style with this fun feathered skirt frock

Our Partial Wedding Time Line ♥

My first article for August. Weeehhh!

Time flies so fast, and before we know it, it’s our wedding already. Since we’re complete with our suppliers, Mark and I decided to make a time line for the rest of the wedding preparations. And hopefully, we carry out these tasks without experiencing any problems along the way – most especially with the processing of our documents. I heard from a lot of B2B’s too, that acquiring a confirmation certificate is stressful to boot. There are times that the church where they had their confirmation doesn’t acknowledge or couldn’t find their records. So I am hoping and praying that we wouldn’t encounter such problems like these.

Time line:

August – mom said that she will take care of getting a copy of my baptismal & confirmation certificate.

September – request copies of NSO Birth Certificate; Mark’s turn to request copies of baptismal & confirmation certificate
-          1st trial make up with our HMUA – (My HMUA will try different looks and check what suits me best; geeee I am so excited. I want curly hair!!!)
-          Scheduled meet & greet of our families

October – meet up with the florist and visit the hotel so we can discuss the flowers that will be used to ornate the place.
                -distribute Save-the-Date cards (granted that our Photographer will be able to do the layout & printing on time)

November – gown fitting for the entourage & for my gown too! =)

December – Interview with the priest at Don Bosco!!!
-          Do layouts for invitations
January – meet up with Norly Dizon & our OTD to discuss the wedding program

February – submit songs to Velvet Musicale
-          Layout for Photobooth

March – request for Marriage License & Cenomar
                -distribute invitations; print misalletes

April – get the wines from supplier, buy accessories etc

May  - RELAX! & of course, pay the balances! =) 
         - rehearsal 

Obviously, the list isn't complete yet, and we still have lots of things to settle. But hopefully everything would turn out so well. We are so happy that Mark and I are beyond the wedding time line we have, and good thing, we started looking for wedding suppliers at an earlier time, so we don’t have to cram that much. For sure if I didn’t start looking for suppliers last December, wedding date would be moved at a later time – most especially that I am a fickle-minded bride ;)
