On one of my very rare mom-me-time, I was able to go to Robinsons Galleria on the first weekend of the Red Hot Sale. I was able to check out furniture, kids’ apparel, jewelry, eyeglasses, clothes, and shoes. Here’s a rundown of some shops I checked out and my fab finds:

Freeway/Ensemble

This goes first on my list since this was where I got my best (read: most budget-friendly) finds.  See the bolero with a design by Vicente Manansala on it? Would you believe that I got it for only P99.50?! It was further marked down from its tag price of P199.  Such a steal, really!  Even if you’re on a tight budget, you could still update your wardrobe with blouses that go as low as P 199.50 and dresses at P599.

Unica Hija

Though not all items are on sale, you’ll still be able to find stylish blouses at 50% off.  Blouses on sale range from P 395 to P 595. I also saw several slacks on sale one of which I really wanted to try on but was short on time.  I hope it’ll still be there when I go back next weekend. It’s not often you get a good pair of slacks for only 500 pesos.

Karimadon

In need of more dresses?  Check out their sale rack.  The blue shift dress with matching bolero is not at only P599 – down by more than 50% from its original price of P1999.  If you have a little more extra shopping money, you may want to grab one of their latest designs as well.  🙂  And speaking of design, Karimadon also has an ongoing contest where you can stand to win up to P10,000 and to see your design in Karimadon’s Holiday Collection.  Check out www.facebook.com/karimadon/fashion for more details.

ResToeRun

P500 for comfy colourful Marie Claire wedges!!! Need I say more?  I’m sure that’ll have you running to ResToeRun already. Stocks are limited so better run fast.  I would have grabbed a couple of pairs but they, unfortunately, did not have them in size 5 (boo-hoo).  Also on sale are Salvatos foldable flip flops which now cost only P300. In case you get caught in a heavy downpour, having a pair of these would save your precious stilettos.

I was also able to check out Chez Le Furne, Sarabia Optical, OshKosh B’Gosh, Mothercare, and Toys ‘R Us. If I hadn’t promised hubby and the kids a movie treat that afternoon, I’d have probably scoured every shop in the mall. J Visit Tottering Mama again next week to see what I fab sale items I found from those stores.

I’m pretty sure you’re also now excited to check out what’s on Red Hot Sale.  Before you head to your fave Robinson Mall, add more mileage to your shopping fund by joining Robinsons contest on Instagram.  It’s a simple share and tag contest that might score you some GCs.  (link to instagram) After shopping, drop by the Robinsons Red Hot Sale booth for a chance to win a bottle of hand soap or goodies from URC.

Ways to Save on Long Prom Dresses

A flawless skin signifies good health. But not all girls have clear white skin especially on their legs. This is the common reason why girls dislike the idea of wearing short prom dresses. Some girls have hairy legs and going to a skin clinic could be expensive for them. Instead of showing their legs they rather wear long prom dresses to hide their scars, varicose veins and unwanted hair not to mention their bow legs or knock knees.

If you are too conscious to wear short and mini dresses, you can still look alluring with a long prom dress that comes in various sizes, designs and colors. Most of these dresses command a high price because they are made of several meters of fabric. Take for instance a tulle A-Line princess V-neck prom dress with chapel train is a bit expensive. Its train is spread wide onto the floor making it hard for the wearer to walk without holding its hemline to avoid tripping off and fall. Its original price was $350 but now it is offered at $196.

For girls who want to impress their crushes can avail of affordable long dress for the prom at JJsHouse which caters to all types of fashion ensemble from wedding gowns to Quinceanera dresses. If you really want to look sultry on the prom without showing off your hairy legs, then you have to search for long gowns that are made of organza, tulle, satin or taffeta.

These dresses can be worn again in case you get invited in social gatherings. You can wear a shawl over a sweetheart long prom dress to change your outlook in a wedding event or add some embellishment for a simple pearl pink chiffon A-line princess V-neck prom dress with ruffle during a homecoming party. These are practical options to keep you from overspending for long dresses in the future.

Product Review: Celeteque Maternity Anti-Stretch Mark Cream

A couple of weeks ago, I received a tube of Celeteque Dermoscience Maternity Anti-Stretch Mark Cream for review.  When I received the cream, I knew it would be a miracle for it to banish my stretch marks which in all likelihood could only be removed through a surgical procedure or a state-of-the-art dermatological procedure.  I carried twins on my first pregnancy which has stretched my abdominal skin to unimaginable size.  Imagine my petite 5-ft-frame carrying twin daughters.  I literally looked like a balloon – a hot-air balloon at that! This was followed soon after with another pregnancy; this time with an 8-pound-16-ounces baby boy. So, yes, I have earned my stripes, my tiger stripes so very evident until now.  Nevertheless, I still tried the anti-stretch mark cream.  It may not banish my stretch marks completely but it could reduce them and hopefully make them a little bit less noticeable in time for summer.

Celeteque Anti-Stretch Mark Cream

Celeteque Maternity Anti-Stretch Mark Cream contains Elastonyl and Alchemilla vulgaris extract that improves skin elasticity.  Phyto Collage and Shea Butter helps moisturize the skin and help make skin more pliant.  The cream helps prevent stretch marks and reduces existing ones.  It is easily absorbed by the skin and does not feel too thick and warm.  This formulation works great in our humid climate as it does not leave you feeling sticky throughout the day.  The “stickiness” factor is the primary reason why I seldom applied the rich cocoa butter during my pregnancy.  I was already feeling warmer than usual during those times and the sticky cream just made me feel much more uncomfortable. Celeteque Anti-Stretch Mark Cream, as I’ve mentioned, is quickly absorbed.  I can apply it on my tummy and on my thighs (no stretch marks there yet but Mama’s gaining a few pounds and might end up having tiger stripes there as well) without feeling uncomfortable during the day.  I really wish this cream had already been available six years ago when I first got pregnant.  I probably wouldn’t have these unsightly stretch marks now.

varying degrees of stretch marks: from severe to barely noticeable

Another factor that makes this a great product for frugal moms is its affordable price.  At only P445.00 per 100ml, it’s very easy to fit into the monthly budget. Celeteque Maternity Anti-Stretch Mark Cream is available at Watson’s, SM Department Stores, and Robinson’s Department Stores.  You can also purchase it and other Celeteque Dermoscience products online at http://service.healthfirst.com.ph/celeteque/

Whether you choose to use the Celeteque Maternity Anti-Stretch Mark Cream or some other product, make sure you apply it on your abdomen and on other stretch mark prone areas before your baby bump grows into full size.   Believe me, preventing stretch marks is a lot easier than making them disappear.
