Hello dear readers! It’s been a while since! I really missed blogging at OhSoPetite. Been busy with work and with my other blog, but here I am now excited to share my yet another outfit I am happy wearing.
We’ve been to a worship conference entitled Let’s Talk About Worship and was so blessed that I attended such convention-very light and refreshing. Outside the stadium, there are street vendors selling this potato chips on stick. Isn’t amazing how this thinly chopped and crispy potato chips can be presented on stick?
Hope you are having a very nice time today. How’s your week going?
Prom Night season..
Oh how I reminisce how I look that night, and how everybody seem to look very dazzling.. That first dance and my dance with my crush. Those memories that are priceless.
Days or even weeks before your prom night, It is every girl’s dilemma is her on that special night. Oh! Maybe your friend has bought her dress and it is magnificent.
You wish that your dress would be as or more awesome than hers. But finding that beautiful and fitting dress is not a walk in the park, I know.. That entails going to every boutique in your town and probably fit some dresses but at the end of the day, you are still frustrated that you haven’t found that dress you picture out in your mind..
That is tiresome and frustrating.. Good thing that you can find prom dresses online where there are varied colors, style, length that you can choose from.
When I found PickedDresses.com, i played that if I will attend a prom this weekend, what are the dresses that I will be excited to wear? I created my list below and explained why.
Selecting short dress for petite body frame like mine is very tricky. Of course you want to look as a beautiful and elegant woman on your prom night and not as a little flower girl.
Here is my selected short prom dresses with mature color and exquisite design.
Selecting a long dress for petite body frame is difficult, as well. You have to make sure that you will not look short on your dress and you are not overwhelmed by the dress.
Long dress cuts that are pro-petite frames are Trumpet cuts, Cut out and Empire Cut. Trumpet cuts (first picture) accentuates the curves of a woman and at the same time elongates her silhouette. A midrif cut out dress (second) is so daring because of some flesh revealed but at the same time elegant because of the black and gold color pattern plus it creates a long silhouette for the wearer. Empire cut (third) creates an illusion of high waist line and long legged frame.
Have you already picked your prom dresses or just have one in mind? Comment below your picture of your perfect prom dresses and why did you chose it?
Merry Christmas my all dears!
I am indeed blessed for this year have been so fruitful and wonderful! Thank You Lord Jesus! This Christmas season, a line from one Christmas song that says “..and man will live forever because of Christmas day!” always flash on my mind! And indeed, we are forgiven, redeemed and saved because of the birth and resurrection of Jesus!
Here is an outfit I wore in our office Christmas party! Another effortlessly elegant piece is added on my favorite – long skirt with a high slit! Isn’t so elegant?
It became my fascination now to take a shoe selfie, and it is a challenge for me to shoot a unique and creative one! So glad that this shoes is so beautiful!
Again, Happy Holidays my all dears and may you enjoy this season with your loved ones!
Hope you all have a great holiday today!
What would you do if every morning without fail, your bank called to say that 86,400 pesos had been credited to your account? But no balance could be carried over the next day; whatever sum that was not spent could not be saved. Would you use every penny every day? Maybe, the answer in the back of your mind right now is “Syempre naman, sayang!”
Well, that is exactly the case with our time. Every night, when the clock reached 12:00am, 86,400 seconds are deposited in our account. It is ours to do if we will use them or lose them. We can’t save time; we can only spend it. Me, I want to spend it wisely by budgeting my time to different responsibilities and priorities.
This is the principle that I am always pondering every morning. I enthusiastically start my day by committing myself to spend each second with God, self, family, work, hobbies and friends. But there comes circumstances that are inevitable and beyond control that can ruin your plans and even your day; heavy traffic, no more jeep or taxi available to ride on, crowd of commuters, bad weather. I always wish that I can travel from our house to other place in no time like Teleportation.
Though only true in fiction stories, I want to unlock the skill of Teleportation so I can conserve time in commuting, and spend more time with significant things in my life. An hour travel to work can be used to extend my sleep; a thirty minute traffic can be directed to physically spend it with friends like talking them in person or inviting them for a coffee. My boyfriend lives in Cavite, and I live in Quezon City. We are three hours away. Recently, he was injured and cannot walk properly; I wished I can visit him in just a snap of a finger. Thank God he was okay now. But the next time I missed him, I’ll have a KIT KAT® Break and will instantly beside him and take care of him.
This is Kevin, my boyfriend. He travels 2.5 hours average everyday to go to work. And he travels three hours to see me. I bet, he needs a KitKat Break too.

I admit, I am a music lover. And whenever I have time, bored or even while doing something, I put my earphone on and listen to my Spotify playlist or Ptr. John Piper’s commentary on Sound Cloud. Our love for music has become a lifestyle that also turned out to be an inseparable daily routine for us. If you look around, you can see people taking a walk, driving, crossing the streets, strolling the mall, or even hanging with friends with their earphones plugged on their ears.
Earphones are good. It is small, lightweight and gives you the opportunity to listen to music, radio, watch movies on your smart phones or ipod without interrupting people around you. It also blocks sounds around you so you cannot be bothered by sound around and makes you feel disconnected from your surroundings. Big, bold and branded headphones have become a fashion statement now, so people really feel cool wearing it outside.
This morning, I rode a jeepney going to work. In Philippines, jeepney passengers have to pass on the fare of a person beside him/her until it reaches the driver. There is this one girl who nonchalantly hand out her fare to the jeepney driver without even telling where will she be going. The driver kept asking the passengers because the girl gave 100peso bill which needs change. At first, I didn’t notice that it was her. The man beside her tapped and asked her, she then replied with a small soft voice that nearly couldn’t hear. I realized that she’s wearing an earphone and very occupied.
I realized with that incident the disadvantage of wearing earphone outside or while commuting. Yes, it helps us survive our boredom, but the danger and nuisance it brings to you and other people out weights your selfish desire for entertainment. The following are I have thought of. You can freely add the cons of wearing earphone thru the comment box below. Meanwhile, this is Why I will not wear earphone while commuting?
- Prone to Accidents – Since earphone pacifies the external sounds (of course aside from the extreme sound honks of trucks or sirens), you will not be aware of the people, vehicles or the situation around you. You won’t be aware of the emergency vehicles or warning honks of the vehicles. I have read many news that pedestrians were hit by a vehicle because they crossed the streets while not observing or even hear approaching vehicles. Wearing earphone while commuting is DANGEROUS.
- Insensitive to People and Surroundings – When someone talks to you, you will either ask them to reiterate it several times. And when you respond, it is either you respond quietly or loudly, because you cannot hear your voice. And like after the writer of this article got a bike accident after intentionally avoiding an earphone-deaf-pedestrian, the pedestrian was not aware what happened or what harm have he caused to others.
- Threat of Hearing Loss – Because of the noises outside especially vehicle honks and sirens, you tend to put your music into high volume. Yes, you can hear the sound clearly yet you do not know the damage it creates to your ear. According to this medical write up, “if you can’t hear anything going on around you when listening to headphones, the decibel (sound intensity) level is too high.” MP3s can produce 120 decibels. And quoting from this site, Noise-induced hearing loss can result from a one-time exposure to a very loud sound (at or above 120 decibels), blast, impulse, or by listening to loud sounds (at or above 85 decibels) over an extended period.
Hope you use your earphones with care! Happy Monday!
