Popular K-pop Fashion Trends

South Korea is a beautiful country known for its rich culture, delicious food, and breathtaking tourist destinations. However, it is also widely known for its Korean dramas and K-pop or Korean pop. For those who do not know, K-pop is a musical genre characterized by a wide variety of audiovisual elements. It is also used to describe modern South Korean pop music like pop ballad, dance pop, rock, hip hop, R&B, electronic and many more. Nowadays, we often see countless K-pop boy and girl bands singing both Korean and English songs. Although most of us might not understand what they are saying, this does not stop us from listening to their songs, buying their albums and going to their concerts.

K-pop is also known for setting fashion trends and new styles. Some of these looks may be deemed worthy in the fashion world, but there are looks that are bordering on the extreme side, looks that ordinaly individuals might find a bit hard to wear. Since I consider myself a fashion forward person, I sometimes try to emulate the K-pop fashion trends that can be worn everyday. I do not want to overdo things lest I look like I am trying too hard. I only incorporate some of the trends into my wardrobe like for instance, wearing K-pop inspired accessories. Of course it is up to you if you want to copy the whole look. I often visit online stores such as zalora.com.ph, romwe.com and coco-fashion.com to look for K-pop inspired items.

The School Girl Look is one popular fashion trend. We often see K-pop female artists wearing preppy school uniforms that make them look innocent yet flirty. This is suitable for teenagers but for more matured women, this look will definitely not work. Wearing neon colors is another stylish trend that you can incorporate into your wardrobe. Your ensemble does not necessarily have to be neon, you can probably wear just a neon top or vice versa.

Another staple of K-pop fashion is military accents. This is a stylish look that works for both men and women. The secret to this trend is to mix the pieces into your outfit so it does not look as if you are wearing a costume. Wearing colored pants is also cool. Girl bands are seen wearing bold colors while boy bands are seen wearing pastel colors.

If you love bold animal prints, then you are just like your favorite K-pop idol. Leopard print in various shades and sizes especially. Last but not the least is clashing 80’s patterns that is suitable for people who have a bold and funky personality. You can wear any 80’s inspired print and mix it with another bold print. Accessories should be simple when you are wearing this trend.

Shopping For Quality Yet Affordable Products at Lazada Philippines

 photo lazada_logo_zpsc9d0df97.jpg

Some people do not like online shopping. There are even those who have not tried purchasing anything online. The same cannot be said about me because I love online shopping. It is such a stress reliever and something that you can do anytime, where ever you are. For me the advantages of online shopping outweighs the disadvantages that some skeptics have about it. I am a very busy person so it kinda saves me time because I do not have to go to the mall and endure all the hassle that comes with it like traffic and throngs of people in the counter.

I have several online stores that I always visit because of the wide array of products they sell. I like the ones which sell everything so if ever I need to buy several items, I will buy it all in one place and save some money on the shipping fee. One of my favorites is Lazada. I have bought several items from them and for sure I will be purchasing more in the future. There are so many things going for this store. I remember when they were just starting and now they have hundreds if not thousands of products from different categories.

Shoppers can also search for products by brand depending on the type of item you have in mind. I am interested in buying a tablet and have a choice among many brands like Acer, Apple, Asus, Cherry Mobile, Coby, Samsung, Starmobile etc. Coby is known for selling high quality products at affordable prices so I checked out their selection of tablets (click here for their other products).

The Coby Kyros MID7011 7″ Android 4.0 4GB is one of the more affordable tablets that is not lacking in features. It comes with a 7″ capacitive touchscreen which is more than enough to watch movies and play games in. It runs on Android 4.0 ICS and has a dual-core 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. You can efficiently do multiple things on this tablet with relative ease. Probably the best feature it has is its built-in TV tuner. Now I can watch TV anywhere I am. With its 4GB internal memory expandable to up to 36GB via a 32GB microSD, you can download all the apps, games, music, movies etc. that you want. It also has Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity.

Lazada has been generating a lot of buzz, so much so that it was recently featured on the TV show Thumbs Up, a lifestyle magazine show that scours the whole Philippines for successful and up-and-coming enterprises, places, and people. The interview with the co-founders of Lazada has really explained the whole process of shopping with this fastest-growing online store and how convenient and worry-free everything will be once you do decide to shop with them.

Sorry, I couldn’t able to named out their list of sponsors here or the exact brands where these awesomeness came from. Because I supposed to focused with on the magazine cover itself and to the concepts they’ve used to here.

I actually pretty envy on these styling because this really me, I mean this speaks with my style – though I used to like the plain dramatic styling like only wearing an plain tee and pair with it in plain colored shorts or pants. It’s kinda neat looking though but yet I think, I still prefer myself seeing on these colorful styling especially now we were having this summer season.

I do not know how to draw or paint but I do appreciate art and would often go to art museums to unwind. Being able to do art is a God-given talent. Someone who has it should cherish and develop it to its full potential. Successful artists probably have all the materials and art supplies they need to hone their craft and I am sure that whenever they do not have time they buy materials from online stores such as Madison Art Shop. It is faster and more convenient and they will be able to have more time in their hands because they can buy everything in one place.

Getting Information about Air Brush Makeup

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos
Every girl wants to be pretty and to feel special. One way that many women choose to make themselves feel good is through makeup. Makeup offers the chance to highlight your best features while minimizing those you don’t care for quite as much.

While some women may be hesitant to wear makeup, the truth is that a little bit of makeup can go a long way. If you’ve never worn makeup before, you have a few options for choosing makeup. First off, you can head to your local Wal-Mart or Target and pick out some makeup off the shelf.

Pick colors that you like and that complement the color of clothing you typically wear. Also make sure that the makeup you choose is within your budget. Never go into debt over makeup. Another option for women who plan to wear a lot of makeup is to invest in an air brush make up system.

Air brush make up is especially beautiful and fantastic. If you’re willing to take the chance and try it out, you’ll be thrilled with the results. Regardless of what you wear, make sure you choose makeup that makes you feel good about yourself. Makeup should always make you feel incredibly special and beautiful.

Fun Riding the Bicycle

 photo b_zps39b4d4cd.jpg

My being busy with so many things prevents me from regularly doing the hobbies that I love. I guess this is the price you have to pay to earn more money and to advance your career. But of course everybody deserves a break and what better way to destress than to do what you love doing. I have always loved biking. If I had more time or I am more sports minded I could have done it competitively and joined various cycling competitions. But as it is, I am quite happy even if I just ride it around the village where I live or go on short trips and do errands. I have a couple of friends who also enjoy cycling so sometimes I invite them and we go mountain biking.

Bicycling has quickly gained popularity and some people even use it as their primary mode of transportation. It is also a great way to shape up. You get to burn a lot calories even if you ride for only a short time. I have several bikes including utility bikes and mountain bikes. I especially love the Scott bikes from Eureka that I bought a couple of months ago because they are comfortable to ride in, lightweight, durable, and affordable. I would probably buy another one if a new model catches my fancy.

Another thing to keep in mind when riding a bicycle is the use of proper clothing. Weather is a substantial factor in determining what clothes to wear when cycling. It is a must to wear a helmet and if you are quite inexperienced, you need to have elbow and knee pads. If you are fond of riding at night or early in the morning, wear brighter colors and reflective pieces for you to be easily seen. Flats are a suitable alternative to sneakers or bike shoes. Wear a windproof jacket with zippered pockets and a hood when it is cold. For bottoms, do not wear bulky bottoms, jeans and wide-legged pants. When it is cold, wear pants that are long enough to be tucked into thick socks and wear Lycra shorts during hot weather.
