Much Love To Renegade Folk | Brand Focus

DSC00271

I think this is my very first brand focus for a fashion brand, so forgive me if I am not the best. I initially started following Renegade Folk on their Instagram account, looking for a pair to replace my beaten up go-to sandals. But I ended up picking up three pairs ina span of a month and a half! I am not the most stylish or on trend woman(girl, lady), but when I like something, I will get them in all colors, shapes and sizes. 

I love how Renegade’s style direction is very minimal, effortless and goes equally well in an office chic, smart casual attire(perfect for the everyday work girl or Tita of Cebu). I wish I found out about this brand earlier! 


DSC00078The first pair I picked up was Her in Tan in a Size 8. I would like to call this very favorite Sunday shoe. I always wear this with a pair of jeans, colored skinny slacks or if I want to put a little effort, a frilly white sundress. The leather was a tad bit tight on me on the first try but it moulded to my feet eventually.DSC00085

My easy experience (as a whole) in getting this pair made want to pick up another pair ASAP! Did I tell you that you get a discount on your next RF shoe after you buy your first one? This pair comes in four other shades! Tan, Light Taupe, White and Zebra. I want to buy them all!

DSC00114The second pair I got was Hope in Tan. My closet rule is whenever I get a new pair of shoes or new clothes, I always throwout or give an old one away. And my old strappy sandals definitely needed some replacing(is that a good enough excuse to pick up another one?).

DSC00130RF’s unique leather is something I have only experienced with their products. They aren’t rigid, potent in smell or uncomfortable. They can even stand rain! This design is even more versatile in wear and is more office appropriate for client meetings and what not. This comes in three other colors, Tan, Light Taupe and White. Please make one in Gold too!

My last pair for this brand focus on Renegade Folk is Better Together in Light Taupe. I have been eyeing this style for months now. The Tita in me just couldn’t stop thinking about this design and all the ways I could wear it to work and other gatherings. Ugh! The possibilities are endless with this one.

DSC00237I choose a Light Taupe because I wanted something different from the usual palette in my shoe closet(just beige and black, tbh). This is just as comfortable to wear walking around town or just sitting in the office. I know this specific design isn’t ‘original’, but I must add that the leather they use for this makes all the difference. Love love love!

To the Folks at Renegade Folk, thank you for creating such an amazing shoe company that caters to all the basic girls out there(me). You really know what a girl wants in a shoe and more. Keep doing your thaaang!

Till my next pair! ❤

Sephora Dupes!! | Liquid Lipstick and Lipsticks

DSC00349

We are always out looking for the next best dupe in the market. But before we head out to have a look, you might want to see what you already have because chances are that you already have the thing that you want.

Take a peek of what I found in my drawers that were Sephora dupes and drugstore dupes! I found a sheer, nude and plum dupe for you guys! Thank God that I found this because this means that I don’t need to go out and buy things I don’t need!

The Clinique ‘Pop Lip’ Color & Primer in Nude Pop has been in the market for awhile. I usually pair this with a dark nude lip pencil and apply this on top to make it look like it has a bit of depth and shimmer. The dupes of this mid range lippie could possibly be the L’Oreal Color Riche Lipstick in Beige Sienna and Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Lipstick in Rosetto.

This Nude dupe isn’t much of a drugstore dupe. But it is still a dupe that you can match at Sephora(*wink). The Urban Decay Comfort Matte Lipstick in Stark Naked is sort of the fraternal twin sister of MAC’s Velvet teddy but it is a tad bit more orange. While the Bite Beauty Lip duo in Whisper makes a great pair! Sorry that I don’t have a link to this!

The Kat von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita has got to be one of the brands best selling liquid lipsticks. Aside from it being a good quality liquid lippie, it is also VERY comfortable to wear! And I noticed after all this time that I had a dupe for this all along! A creamier dupe at that! The Bite Beauty Lip duo in Mystic is the ONE!

Check out the swatches!!

What To Pack in your Gym Bag

DSC00294

If you’ve been keeping up with your fitness new year’s resolution, well… CONGRATULATIONS!! You are still on track to a healthier you! But if you are still getting started, you might need to know some essentials to make sure you come in the gym for different types of workouts.


First things first(I’m the realest), I stuff all my gym gear, big or small in my trusty Printed green canvas shoulder bag(which I don’t have a link to), but this is a similar one, link here!I like the whole zipper-less design to make it more versatile when I need to throw in a yoga mat or anything that can’t exactly fit in a closed bag.

Aside from taking with me a pair of rubber shoes like my Nike Zoom Pegasus sneaks, I make sure I throw in my long time favorite deodorant, the Lady Speed Stick. It has been tried and tested, its really the best!

The two things that I constantly bring in my bag even if I am not so sure if i’ll be using it are the Nike Training Gloves and my Nike Arm Band. The gloves come in handy when I do things like TRX, crossfit or basically things that have been holding a bunch of equipment. While the Arm Band comes to great use when I go on jogs because I always prefer taking my phone with me just incase! 

DSC00289When it comes to gym attire, I am not too picky when it comes to the actual apparel thats why I just like wearing my usual H&M Yoga Leggings and Sports Top. But when it comes to “support” I always like to make sure that I wear a high impact bra to keep the ladies up there!, my fave is the Nike Sports Bra (High Impact).

I don’t know if its just me, but I hate bringing huge water jugs to the gym. I see no point in bringing a 1.5L jug when you can easily fill it up at the gym if ever you run out anyway?! My 20 Oz Klean Kanteen is the best water jug I have ever had to date. It is so versatile!!! It keeps your drink iced for more than 24 hours and hot drinks for up to 8 hours. This is such a great investment! I already have two!

I am not much of a social person at the gym. I tend to focus on what I have to accomplish on that day then leave when I have finished it. To help me zone out all the overheard chitchat, I put on my Urbanears Humlan Headphones. I finally traded in my in-ear earphones for headphones because its less straining on my ears(because I also use these during my 9 hour work days), plus they are washable!

The last two things that I never fail to bring are a Generic Face Towel to wipe off all that sweat from spinning and my fave(only) fragrance, Gotas De Oro Perfume to hide my body odor after the gym!

***I know A LOT of my things are from Nike but this post is in NO WAY sponsored by them. LOL! I wish it was though!!(srsly though… Nike, my contact info is on my blog) I have a Nike depot close by so that has always been my go-to active wear store.
