The Week That Was: Fall Booties & Sneakers, No Makeup Makeup Plus Straightforward Review of Tom Ford Lip Contour Duo Public Display

What are your fall must-haves, style-wise? I love booties, oxfords, and sneaker wedges! My taste in fashion is latched on comfort, balance and basics. Anything that won't require me to overanalyze when it comes to pairing. Age did that me. Four-0 club, raise your hand!

Year-round Sun Protection : AmorePacific Resort Collection

Just because summer is over doesn't mean that you will intentionally disregard the use of sunscreen because truth is, even if there is overcast or you are walking amidst the beautiful melange of autumn  leaves, you are not spared from the harmful effects of sun's UV rays such as photaging, sunburn to some extent, and even worse, melanoma. Hence, sunscreen should be part of your beauty arsenal year-round, 365d.

A Week In Instagram : Petite Style Alerts, Fall Neutrals & New Blonde Hair

Hello ladies! We're half-way done with September, I can almost taste fall! Need beauty and style inspirations? I have been posting on Instagram My Story (not the regular feed) bits and pieces of outfits and makeups that's fall-ish appropriate so please follow me if you haven't yet.

For my petite ladies (I'm a tiny 5'1 humanoid), you know how difficult it is to find a pair of jeans that won't require hemming or folding. Well, you better rejoice because Mossimo got it right this time with these jeggings, they fit true to size and hit right at the ankle! I believe they are new releases for fall and had there been more colors, I would've hoarded. Look for mid-rise jeggings in camo (zipper pocket on the sides) and brown (zipper on the bottom) and pair them with fall's must-have white sneakers or booties, boyfriend shirt or cowl sweater for a chic yet laid-back vibe. I don't see them yet at Target online so you have to check 'em out in-store.

A Typical Sunday Afternoon Home Spa

Here's a typical Sunday afternoon scenario at TFZ (thefabzilla) cave: the dreaded 4pm, my least favorite time of the day! you know why? because Monday is few hours away, work work work! So madam decides to take it slow and pamper herself, beginning with hair mask, followed by face mask. Inhale, exhale. 1.5 hrs of bliss perfection. 

Home spa, it's my mini-retreat to rejuvenate and relax; hence I surround myself with all sorts of high quality spa-like products to support my "me-time". Lather is one of them because their products are naturally-sourced, cruelty-free, paraben and sulfate-free and most of all, decently priced. I have tried so many from the brand and I don't mind adding more, just like this aromatic set called Lavender Retreat!

Neutral-Loving Ladies Must-Try | bareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lip Color & Buttercream Lip Gloss

It is cursed or what? first, these beauties were part of the batch of photos that got corrupted when my Mac Air crossed the underworld two weeks ago. I had to reshoot including moi wearing each shade. But guess what, while the product shots came out nice, the actual lip swatches emerged blurry! Oh well, scrap that and let's settle with arm swatches for the time being, otherwise these nude lippies from bareMinerals will be forever pushed to the backend. Things that happened behind the scene, I tell ya!
