Winter Casual Outfit Idea / Mixed & Matched: Black & White / Winter Coat & Scarf

Christmas is getting there, and winter is right up there too!:) It's definitely getting colder around here. How's your winter wardrobe going?:) Are your coats ready yet for these colder months ahead?:)

Today is another style idea that is perfect for this cold weather. Black & White is such a classic color, which you can pair up with anything. I have this double breasted coat in like forever, the style is something you can dress up or down. The plaid design adds more interest to this coat, and don't forget the amazing pockets!:)

( Coat : Macy's , Scarf : Target , Bag : Fossil )

A higher neckline is definitely a big plus in a coat to keep us warm & cozy. And this coat does it for me. I also added & paired it with a printed black & white scarf. 

Mixing Plaid & other prints is something scary to do, but this one works for me.

I guess with the same color family or keeping the color minimal makes it easier to mixed and matched.

Thanks for joining me today. Stay warm & have a happy holidays!:)

Product & Service Review: LensCrafters & Ray-Ban

I always have my eyes checked every year. My prescription is a little bit higher than last year but not that bad. After getting it checked on the place where I go every year, I decided to try a different place to get my glasses this time. I thought to share it here, maybe it will be helpful to some of you.

I decided to try LensCrafters which is located inside the Mall in my area. It's a pretty nice location and has a good number of selection. There was a lot of customers that day, as soon as I entered the store, I was browsing around, checking which frame will I go for. A staff approached me asking if I need help which is nice, knowing it's so busy that day (Saturday), I talked to him but I needed more time to look around.

Took me awhile to find what I'm looking for. This Ray-Ban looks modern , sleek , light , and has a matte frame. Love it! I approached the same staff and let him know that I'm ready, he then asked me to go to specific table, and a women staff greeted me, I handed my prescription to her (they also have eye check-up available there which is awesome), but since I have one already, all she need to do is to look up the name of my eye Doctor. She entered all the information on the computer. Very easy.

She asked me to look on the camera,which is just beside her computer and right in front of me. She took a photo, once my photo is on her computer, she look at it and did some measurements on my eye area.

After that, she told me that she will go and check if they have my glass lenses in stock (nice! on my previous optical, I have to wait for 2 weeks since there's no other choice). They have a "lab" looking room which is visible - glass room and you can see people working.

She came back, and told me that my glass lenses are in stock and I should be able to pick them up after 1 hour. Sweet!:) So we finished all  the paper works, insurance and payments. 

I came back after an hour, got my glasses. A different staff was helping me this time, he asked me to try my glasses on, he then made some adjustments on the "hook" part of it so it won't fall off. He cleaned them and put them in its case and bag.

He also told me how to clean it properly, for both glasses and frame. He also gave me some Pre-Moistened Lens Towellette to try. 

Prices may vary for frames and lenses and also depends on your insurance. Overall, I love my new glasses, and so happy with their service.:)

So glad you stop by! Thanks for joining me today!:)

Essentials for Sweater Weather : Fall / Cold / Winter Season

Yay! Happy first day of December!:)

Fall Leaves is definitely one of the top highlights during this season. And right now, as the wind blows, those beautiful leaves are already falling down slowly. I can't deny that we are still having an amazing weather, but it's getting cooler everyday, we have to get ready and be prepared on this sweater weather!:)

(Sometimes it's the most obvious/basic things that we tend to
Here are some Essentials that is a must have for this colder months:

  • Sweater / Jacket / Coat - Definitely find the most comfortable sweater / jacket that will keep you warm. My favorite everyday jacket one has a fluffy / Fleece lining , waterproof , & wind breaker. 
  • Under-Shirt / Tees / Thermal - It's best if it's long sleeve with higher neckline, these stuff are awesome for layering. I like when it's a little bit hugging on my skin, so it won't move everywhere.
  • Fleece Lined Leggings / Fleece Pants / Tights - It's just the most comfortable thing to wear, specially when walking around and doing some errands.
  • Socks - Tons of available cute socks out there. There's also alot of thickness to choose from.
  • Boots - Find the most comfortable boots that works for you. It can be over the knee, ankle, rain / waterproof that's also perfect for snow days. 
  • Sneakers - It's great whole year round. You can never go wrong with a great pair of sneakers.
  • Fleece Slip-On - This is my newest addition in my shoe collection, It's very comfortable everyday slip-on and definitely will keep you warm. love it!
  • Beanie & Earmuffs - Some days are windy, keep your hair in place with a cute beanie. Also, it will help to cover your ears and keep it warm.
  • Gloves - Definitely a must have, when it's freezing cold.
  • Scarves - Get a few soft scarves, some are even big enough that can be use as a poncho.
  • Lotion & Moisturizer - It's really drying during cold season, so keep your skin moisturize and hydrated.
  • Petroleum Jelly / Lip Balm - Dry lips is very common around this time of year too, make sure to carry some lip balm with you.
  • Leave-In Conditioner (Spray) - It might sound weird, but hair static is also common when it's cold, specially when you have a long hair, it sticks everywhere. Leave-In conditioner will help to prevent less static.
  • Water - No doubt! Keep on drinking water to stay hydrated.
Hmmm..... I'm sure I forgot something which happens all the time!lol But hey, leave a comment below if there's more we need to add.

I guess a cup of Coffee or Hot Chocolate is a must have too!lol

As always, thanks for visiting. See you nexttime!:)
