sharing with you guys the awesome and laid-back shopping experience that was during Zalora's press launch in Cebu. when i got the invite for its press launch, i pictured a presentation with the usual question and answer segment and i'd be out of there in just an hour. to my delight, i got there to an intimate and chill environment, greeted by Zalora's marketing manager and immediately given  a brief that we are each given shopping coupons to use and actually get to know the Zalora shopping experience.

long tables were lined with Zalora laptops -- all ready for us to scour the shopping site. fellow Cebu Fashion Bloggers -- Eden, Vanessa, Alex, Jeemah, Rabsin, Marco and Kristine were already there, making the event more fun. (mind you i missed my appointment with the designer for wedding gown and was super late for the photo shoot my sister and i planned for Props.)

thank you Zalora PH for inviting us! i now live in Zalora's website and go through it everyday. my hands are itching to get your new heels from centropelle. *self-control faltering*

my apologies for the hiatus ~ after the trip to Manille for the much-anticipated Bloggers United 3 event, i got back drowned with backlogs at work and my stupid back started acting up again. boo! i had to wear the very un-fashionable neck brace while typing away at my work computer. tried to cover it with a leopard print scarf and someone actually asked if what i'm wearing is really a neck brace or a fashion statement. LOL. oh and a photo of me in a neck brace is something you guys won't see soon. *peace*

how the right underwear can boost your confidence

Confidence is a funny thing. When you’re full of it you feel like you can take on the world, like nothing can stand in your way and that you can overcome any obstacle.

But when you’re lacking confidence, even the smallest set-back can become a big deal. It’s a mercurial and mysterious thing, and nobody really understands how it works. If you could discover the secret and bottle it, you would be very rich indeed.

You Deserve to Be There

Yet despite the intangible nature of confidence, there are certain things you can do that have been proven to help you feel more confident. The most important aspect of confidence is to feel comfortable. This can be in terms of your surroundings, the people you’re with and even the clothes you are wearing.

If you feel at home and comfortable then you are more likely to be yourself, and with that comes confidence and charisma. Tell yourself that you belong and that you deserve to be in any room you walk in to. It also helps to realise that no matter how people present themselves, deep down they are all going through something similar.

Of course, feeling comfortable in what you are wearing can also be a massive boost. If you know that what you’re wearing suits you and works with your shape, then it can relax you and put you in the right frame of mind.

But it’s not just what you wear on the outside that can make you feel comfortable. Underwear is also very important for making you feel good about yourself. If you have supportive and well-fitting underwear then it’s a great starting point for overall comfort.

Comfort and Style

There is no hard and fast rule that says comfortable underwear can’t be sexy. Getting the support you need in the right places is great, but that shouldn’t have to mean looking like you’re wearing a bed sheet.

The lingerie collection for larger figures from Elomi is designed with precisely this in mind. It offers comfort and support where it’s needed and still makes you feel glamorous and sexy. Knowing that, even if no one else is going to see it, is still enough to give you a confidence boost in any situation.
