My first ever LOTD!

My dear friend, Frances of TopazHorizon.com mentioned in one of our chats that publishing LOTD (Look of the Day) and OOTD (Outfit of the Day) entries can actually be good for our blog’s traffic. I easily dismissed that as not for me —  I really would rather post product shots of stuff I use more than posting photos of myself. I am way too shy! But I later thought again, and said to myself, why on earth not! I glam up when I get the chance, why not post them away? It’s my blog anyway! If haters would come mock, it should not really be that big a deal. They can easily jump off to the next eye-friendlier site. 😛

Kikay Corner

Because we are always in a hurry before we leave, I was not able to have my photo taken before the fact. So these photos were actually taken when I got back home. Faded makeup and barely there lipstick? Go figure. 🙂

LOTD Kikay Corner

Necklace: Hubby’s pasalubong from Dubai
Pendant: Jade from Vietnam
Dress: RTW bought from a friend
Footwear: Crocs Women’s Leigh Wedge

raks glam bangle

Watch: Fossil Resin Pearlized Boyfriend Watch
Bangle: Raks Glam

raks glam earring

Earrings: Raks Glam

As you might have noticed, all accessories are by Raks Glam (maybe my next post will be a feature of antique estate jewelry). I essentially had these photos taken to be featured alongside the accessories Raks Glam sent me some couple of months back. But I figured it will be the perfect venue for my first ever LOTD post. Yes, 5 years after this blog was born comes this first LOTD entry. Late bloomer much? 🙂

As for how frequent this is going to be, I plan not to pressure myself about it. My push is to encourage women of any age to take care of themselves. I’m 36 and there is no way I’m hiding that fact. The theme of this blog may not entirely sound like it is authored by a lady my age but since I have no plans of selling this domain just yet, I might as well make use of my influence to get my message across through my blog entries and advocacies.

“Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.” 1 Peter 3:3-4

Truth is, a woman’s real beauty can’t be seen by the naked eyes. But I have always believed in my heart that is no reason for us to resort to looking sloppy and boring. May the above verse be an encouragement to us women that above all things pink and pretty, we should pursue inner beauty. 🙂

    You’re wearing 36 well. I’m 33 myself and I’ve learned to like how I look only when I got older. There’s something about my 30s that makes me feel more confident and secure.

    I’ll be following you on bloglovin! I hope you can come visit my blog too.

    I used to do outfit shots when I was younger, then I stopped, because I felt that dressing up is like a daily routine.. then I realized, it would be much fun to see old ensembles you put together for certain event, day, celebration. I might start doing it again. But still thinking if I should share.

    You look pretty as always Jen! 🙂
