Miss Rebel Wish List: Party & Clubbing Attire

Hey! Welcome back to my blog! I have recently logged into a website called The Blogger Programme. You can find the button here on my blog under "My Badges" and join in if you like to! It is a blog network. So they are having a competition on Miss Rebel which is a clothing store online. You can win $250 dollars to spend on whatever you like on Miss Rebel! All you have to do is to make a wish list of things you want from Miss Rebel then enter the url of the post and comment on the page of the competition with your url! That's all you have to do!

Speaking of the Miss Rebel, here is my wish list for party and clubbing occasions. Now, I sometimes go partying with my family or clubbing with my sisters for a girls' night out. I don't have much outfits that can define my personality so I don't go out much without feeling insecure! Until I see these pretty clothing on Miss Rebel! I can already see myself wearing these gorgeous outfits dancing with confidence! So let's get started on the wish list, shall we?!
From left to right: Buckle Peplum Dress, Cerise Sequin Detail Bodycon Dress, Lace Bust Midi Dress, & Off Shoulder Flare Dress in Black.

Dresses for Clubbing!

First off is the Buckle Peplum Dress. This dress is definitely up my alley. I'm five feet tall and pretty big lady so I want a dress that can hug my curves and yet feel good dancing in it! I know I would wear this dress to a night club! All I have to use my sparkly high heels, a classic cat eyes & red lip duo, and minimal jewelry! Sounds good, huh?

The next dress I picked is the Cerise Sequin Detail Bodycon Dress. All I can think about this dress is it would look bad ass with a black leather jacket. Am I right? I can totally wear this dress at a club and feel good about myself. 

The third dress I drew is the Lace Bust Midi Dress. I can see I can wear this for the New Year's Eve club party as I will reach halfway of my weight goal! So I will definitely be dancing the night away with this dress!

Finally, the Off Shoulder Flare Dress I chose for Clubbing. I love how this dress have the Mexicana inspired ruffles. It's beautiful! I know I will fit right in the crowd at a most popular latino club here in my community. All of the ladies have beautiful dresses just like this one and I always wanted to wear one! So flirty yet gorgeous! Love it!

From left to right: Cream Embellish Detail Peplum Dress, Cream Belted Bandeau Peplum Dress, P.U Wetlook Bardot Dress, & Bardot Off Shoulders Midi Dress in Wine.

Dresses For Parties!

The first dress I picked for parties such as baby showers, quinceaneras, birthdays, etc., is the Cream Embellish Detail Peplum Dress. Now this dress is pretty! It's great for my short body and the color would look great with my skin tone!

The second dress is pretty similar to the first dress and it is the Cream Belted Bandeau Peplum Dress. This dress is gorgeous as well! If it is too cold outside, then I would wear a faux leather jacket to pair with this dress. I can even wear a pair of red high heels without looking too funky! I'm already loving the image I am seeing with this outfit! Haha!

Next is the P.U Wetlook Bardot Dress. Isn't this dress is gorgeous!? Pair this dress with a few statement jewelry, a bold red lips, and classic cat eyes then you're completed for the night! Ugh, love it! Oh I think this dress would look really good with animal print high heels with red bottoms! Am I right or am I right? Haha!

Last but not least is the Bardot Off Shoulders Midi Dress in Wine. Now this color is great for holiday parties. I mean come on! Who doesn't love the color Wine for the holidays!? Yes, I know this dress is just the same as the other bardot dress but the color and the texture do make a huge difference! I can wear this to quinceaneras without feeling too fancy! I even think having a same color for lips can make it even more stunning look! Wow, I am loving Miss Rebel! 

So be sure to come and check Miss Rebel out to see more dresses for any occasions. They also sell jeans, leggings, handbags, belts, and the list goes on and on. What I really love about Miss Rebel are the prices! All of the dresses I picked are under $22! So I can definitely buy all of the dresses above with $250! Oh my god! I sure hope I win! I see a few more to use as gifts for my sisters! 

Well, I hope you find this wish list fun and informative! If you want to join the competition, be sure to go to The Blogger Programme and sign up! Don't forget to friends with me as well while you're there signing up! Okay! Thank you so much for reading and I hope to see you next time!! Bye!

Disclaimer: I won these products through a giveaway on Twitter as a door prize. All of the pictures and opinions are 100% my own.
Hey! Welcome back to my blog! I have another beauty post and it is a review and swatches of Prestige Cosmetics! So as I written in my disclaimer, I won these products through a giveaway at a twitter party. The twitter party was sponsored by Prestige Cosmetics, of course. The topic was about the Back to Black line at their website. Well, Prestige Cosmetics tweeted that to win a door prize, you needed to rsvp at an evite before the twitter party hit off when they start picking winners. There were three winners and I was blessed to be one of them. In fact, I was really surprised because it was only a few minutes after the twitter party started. I was like, "whaaat?!" Haha! So here I am with my review on the door prize I won. It took a month or so for the box with my prize to arrive at my door. It was totally worth the wait! I won two mascaras, two eyeliners, and one trio eyeshadows palette. Not too bad! Haha! Let's begin!
The sleek package holding all of the goodies.

Dean’s List VoxBox Review!


Disclosure: I received these products in the VoxBox complimentary of Influenster for testing purposes. All of the pictures and opinions are 100% my own.


Hey y'all! Welcome back to my blog! I have received another VoxBox from Influenster and it is the Dean's List VoxBox. This was actually a surprise for me. I didn't think I'll get one but thankfully, I did. These products will definitely help me in a long run. So this VoxBox is aim to college students or anyone who is attending at a school. It consists of seven items and the total value is over $23! Let's get started!



Airheads Bites
Retail Price: $0.87-$1.29
Description on the card: Bite into biteable Airheads Bites. The same chewy and fruity candy you love but now in bite sized, easy-to-eat pieces. Airheads Bites are available in fruit and berry flavors.
My thoughts: Okay, let's be honest. Candies are the most delicious thing in the world when you're having an empty stomach. It may seem hours away from lunchtime or end of the day at school. Therefore, having a bag of Airheads Bites will keep your hunger at bay until the class is over. So trust me. These bite sized candies are so good! It is even making my mouth watering right now! Haha! I love the fact there are many pieces in one bag for a reasonable price.

Pilot FriXion Clicker
Retail Price: $5.75 for a 2-pack
Description on the card: Never write a mistake again with the incredible Pilot FriXion Clicker, America's first retractable, erasable gel ink pen that allows you to write, erase, and rewrite repeatedly without damaging documents. FriXion's unique thermo-sensitive ink is formulated to deliver both vibrant color and smooth writing – great for editing, lists, scheduling, and so much more!
My thoughts: I love these pens. They look and feel fancy as I write on my calendar or in my blog binder. They are a bit chunky compare to the ol' regular pens you see in stores. Each pen has a gel gripper, a beautiful design on upper half and an erasing tip. Also, they have a range of colors you can choose from! The colors I received are black and blue. They glide very easily as I write on papers. Great pigmentation with these colors too! I think these pens will make a great gift to your loved ones or a coworker or even a teacher who loves to write and the pens themselves.

Doodle with the pens!

SinfulColors No Text Red
Retail Price: $1.99

Well, it is a beautiful shade of red and it takes two coats to match the bottle. It didn't take a while to dry and it is affordable! What not to love about this product?!

KISS Looks So Natural Lashes
Retail Price: $3.99
Description on the card: KISS Looks So Natural lashes are made with Tapered End Technology so lash strips blend seamlessly with your own lashes, inconspicuously highlighting your eyes- they're so luxuriously light and comfortable, you'll forget you're wearing them! Available at Walgreens & CVS stores Nationwide!
My thoughts: This pair of lashes were the very first time I wore false lashes, ever! I was really nervous at first because I've watched so many tutorials of how to apply false lashes. I even read the manual it came with! Haha! So it took me an hour trying to apply falsies to my lashes and eventually, I succeeded. I could see a small line between my lashes and falsies but hey, I tried my best! Haha! That counts right? My family always tease me in the past that if I wear false lashes, my eyes would be similar to ostrich's because I already have long and thick lashes. Well, they were right! Nonetheless, I really loved the lashes. They were not harsh on my eyes nor too heavy. They looked so natural without any eye makeup and I loved that! Also, I love the fact there are many different falsies in this collection to choose from!

Luden's NEW Watermelon and Blue Raspberry Throat Drops
Retail Price: $1.49 only at Target
Description on the card: Luden's NEW deliciously soothing Watermelon and Blue Raspberry flavors were chosen by our Facebook Fans and you're the first to try one of them! Scratchy throat? Sore throat? Try a Luden's! Enjoy them. Share them. Anywhere. Anytime. Let us know what you think! Only at Target.
My thoughts: What a great timing to have this product at this season! My nephews and nieces always have a cold because either they're at school or surround by peers their age. Most of my nephews are under the age of 6. So I always carry my Luden's throat drops in my purse. Never know who might need it when you cross paths with someone! Well, I tried it just to see how it taste like. The flavor was good and it did taste like blue raspberry, not blueberry. It did helped clear up my scratchy throat and I could talk well again without sounding like a high pitch mouse. I like that Luden's have so many flavors to choose from and they're all under $2! Not bad!

Softlips Cube
Retail Price: $3.49
Description on the card: Think outside the stick with Softlips Cube. Revolutionary 5 in 1 lip care combines an advanced formula with an innovative new cube-shaped package. Lips look radiant and feel softer, smoother, and more hydrated. It is available in three delightful new flavors: Pomegranate Blueberry, Fresh Mint, and Vanilla Bean.
My thoughts: I am a fan of Softlips ever since they came out! I think it's pretty neat for them to think outside of the box to create the new Softlips Cube. The cube lip balms are creamy, hydrating, and last for hours! So I am happy with my Softlips Cube. It's easy to find it in my purse too! Plus, I love the fact Influenster was kind enough to leave a coupon in the VoxBox to let myself purchase another Softlips Cube and I'm thinking to get the Vanilla Bean flavor! Yum!
Rate: 10/10

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance
Retail Price: $3.99
Description on the card: Introducing NEW Playtex Sport Fresh Balance with Odor Shield technology. It's designed to neutralized odors for ultimate freshness on and off the field. Combined with a 360° design for Sport Level Protection, you can go the distance. Play on!
My thoughts: I was relieved to see this full sample of tampons because I had recently started my special week of the month. So I didn't want to use pads for two reasons. Pads can be seen when I wear pants and they stink! Though I was a little skeptical when it came to tampons because I always thought how can one small stick of cotton can absorb so much without leaking and not able to give away smell! I figured why not try it and see what happens. By the way, this was my very first time trying tampons. After I used a tampon, I noticed the wrapper was floral-scented and didn't make much noise as pads did. That was pretty neat to me. I like the fact this tampon did keep me protected for two hours straight without any icky feeling. Not only that, I love the fact I can flush the tampons! No one can do that with pads and I always feel embarrassed when I throw away pads in a trash can because it is just disgusting and horrifying. Am I only one feels this way? Haha! Well, I can tell you, tampons have ruled over pads in my special week!

Friends With Me on My Fitness Pal!

Hey! How are y'all this weekend?! I don't know about you but I am ready for this week to start! Haha! So I finally took a selfie using this laptop and I tried my best to make it clean and clear. As you can see I have my new pair of glasses on!! Yay!
Have y'all seen an episode on Courage The Cowardly Dog show on Cartoon Network where Muriel had her glasses stolen by an imposter? No? Well, Courage tried to warn her of what was going on but then Muriel told him this:
Haha! This part is where I can totally relate to Muriel! I really can't hear without my glasses too! Why? I need to wear glasses to be able to read lips even I am Deaf. It's hard being Deaf and not able to see real good so I am really happy to have a fresh pair of eyes. Haha. Anyway, let's get right to the topic of today which is let's be friends on My Fitness Pal!
In the picture above is my profile on My Fitness Pal. My Fitness Pal is a website where you can enter your information of your body such as BMI, weight, height, and your weight goal. Also, it has a calorie counter AND exercise check-ins. So you can enter your daily routine everyday onto this neat website. Currently, I have no friends on the website because I don't see anyone I know from my city using this app. Therefore, I was hoping someone from somewhere come and be friends with me. I will definitely help support you and I hope you do the same for me. I'm currently still on obese area. Which comes to my goals. My goal is to lose 69 pounds and be around 120 pounds by my 22nd birthday. I want to fit into my old jeans without any guilty feelings and I hate seeing my skinny wardrobe go to waste. Please support me on this journey. I'm already starting today and I always keep failing at keeping my promises for myself but I won't give up! Thank you for reading my short post! I hope you feel inspired to do this with me! Thank you and I will see y'all next time! Bye!
