4 Tips on How to Wear Jumpsuits for Short Ladies

     Jumpsuits are typically a one piece clothing item which is originally used by skydivers or parachuters. However, in the fashion world, it can also refer to a one-piece or two-piece garment with a cohesive design from top to bottom. They come in different colors, designs, patterns and form.

     Jumpsuits is also one of the trickiest clothing items a short lady can wear. It can give a woman`s body the illusion of either short or tall frame and slim or plump built. The key to wearing jumpsuits regardless of body height and shape is getting the right jumpsuit appropriate for your body and style.

5 Life Lessons from Descendants of the Sun by @TheGracefulMist | Fan Art by Karlo G.

It has been a little more than 8 months since the first airing of Descendants of the Sun in South Korea. However, the hype and love for this k-drama has not died down. Social media posts about this TV show continues to appear in timelines. If we carefully watch it with observant eyes, we`ll be able to realize great lessons from the show we can apply in our lives:


1.) You can find happiness in every dilemma.

Whenever we face a serious situation in need of serious attention, we might find ourselves worrying, confused and anxious. However, if we divert our troubled minds and hearts to positivity, we might surprisingly find ourselves thinking better and clearer with a calm and happy demeanor.

Hello lovely ladies!

Burt`s Bees Philippines - Lip Gloss, Rosy Dawn, Summer Twilight, Sunny Day - Review by www.TheGracefulMist.com @TheGracefulMist #SampleRoomPh


I very rarely wear make-up. However, putting lip gloss seems to be a pretty way to give some boost of color and glitz to my face. Last year, I got Burt`s Bees Summer Twilight as a gift for becoming a VIP member at SampleRoom.ph. I acquired the other variants of Burt`s Bees lip gloss by ordering samples from Sample Room Philippines. Even though they`re "samples," they`re actually full-sized products.

"The Blogger" | A Wishlist ft. Dresslily.com

The Blogger - A WishList ft. DressLily.com - @TheGracefulMist - www.TheGracefulMist.com (2)

A blogger do more than simple writing. Bloggers think, formulate ideas, plan and organize them, capture images, create topics and posts, and share and promote them. Being a blogger`s one of my dreams as a young girl. Now that I`m one, I`ve realized that bloggers might need certain things to perform better.

One of the topics I write in this blog is fashion which, in a way, make me a “fashion” blogger. Being a fashion blogger entails that I must be stylish. Contrary to popular belief, “fashion bloggers” aren`t always chic, fashionable and pretty especially someone like me who`s just starting. Most bloggers have day jobs or activities besides blogging. Blogging alone can take a lot of time and effort so add in the other activities bloggers do for a living, it can be quite stressful and exhausting which leaves little to no time for self-primping. On that note, I`ve compiled a few items to complete a blogger`s look which will help bloggers like me to look more presentable.

3 Comfortable and Stylish Outfits for Busy Ladies | A Wishlist ft. Zaful.com

Hello lovely ladies,


We all know life can be quite hectic which is why fashion is something we`ll most likely try to put in the back of our minds. Most of the time, because I am often sick, I don`t have the time to do a lot of things since I spend the majority of my time trying to rest and heal. During the times I`m up without any illness, I try to do as much as I can.

During the past few months, I`ve been feeling much better compared to the last 4-5 years. With this, I had been more enthused to try to look more presentable. I`ve realized that looking presentable will give me an added boost of confidence because I have the knowledge that I`ve tried my best to put myself together and used clothes to represent a part of me. Regardless of whether I`m sick or well, tired or happy, it doesn`t mean I have to look like a slug. I can still look pleasing and presentable yet very comfortable with the right items. For this post, I compiled three comfortable outfits including items I might need in my closet to look more pleasing and stylish despite the possibly hectic schedule.


1.) Girl On-The-Go

Burt`s Bees Philippines` 100% Natural Lip Balms | Review and Top Picks

Hello lovely ladies!


Recently, I`ve been really loving smooth lips. It had been raining so much lately and the weather feels cold which is why I had been having dry and chapped lips these past few days.

Fortunately, I was able to grab different variants of Burt`s Bees Lip Balms through SampleRoom.Ph.
I had been using these lip balms interchangeably since last year. The variants have different scents although some tend to have closely related fragrance. Also, each of them gives off a certain vibe which is fantastic for the different seasons and moods.

Grace`s Open Book: Writings over Speeches

Grace`s Open Book: Writings Over Speeches (by @TheGracefulMist | www.TheGracefulMist.com)


Deep within the soul of a still insecure young woman like me is a very quiet and gentle soul. My aspiration to just hold the pen and write out thoughts to simply deliver without that noisy vexation full of pretenses is very strong. However, normal and societal demands often get in the way of the peaceful slumber I long to lay down with. As I go through life’s daily hustle and bustle, I often ask myself if the distractions to the soul are worth a so-called “normal” life. If normal meant blurredness to one’s own undisturbed self-awareness, I might just take a lonesome path to uniqueness and seclusion.

Zenutrients Philippines | Guaranteed Natural & Organic: Nourishing Olive Face Cream and Aloe & Calendula Head to Toe Cream (Review at www.TheGracefulMist.com)

Recently, I was able to try Zenutrients` Olive Face Cream and Aloe & Calendula Head to Toe Cream through Sample Room Philippines. Zenutrients is a brand I`ve come to appreciate. I first discovered it through SampleRoom.Ph when they had an available stock for the Gugo Strengthening Hair Serum.

According to Zenutrients` website, the company came about when they discovered that Virgin Coconut Oil worked as a solution for their kids` Psoriasis. They first began bottling and selling Virgin Coconut Oil. From there, they branched out into making other products like soaps, scrubs, balms and shampoos. [1]

It was really assuring that they wanted to share to others a tried and tested natural solution to skin problems. Their mission to bring nature alive in every product is something I`m inclined to like. The more natural a product is, the better because I believe nature itself can bring out the goodness and beauty of our skin and over-all well-being.

A Closer Look: 2016 Belle De Jour Power Planner | Mid-Year Review

Hello lovely ladies!



As you can tell, I chose to use one of the "most talked" about planners in the Philippines, the 2016 Belle De Jour Power Planner. I was hesitant to get this because it was quite difficult to decide whether this planner is worth the price or not, but after a long deliberation, I finally bought one for this year. Most of my yearly planners only cost more or less than Php 100.00 (approx. USD 2.50) so it was quite a stretch to buy a planner about 6 times the price of my usual planner.

🏆 Memorable Moments: Top 3 Unforgettable Scenes from Descendants of the Sun 🏆

Annyeong Haseyo!


During the past few weeks, I`ve shared with you my top favorite sweet and funny scenes from the Korean drama "Descendants of the Sun". For this post, I`ll finally share the most unforgettable scenes in the series.

1.) "Meeting Him Again"


Despite the recent parting of Captain Yoo Si Jin and Dr. Kang Mo Yeon, this scene raised the hopes of the viewers. This first reunion of the couple is melodramatic, sensational and just amazing. The slow motion while Captain was walking closer to Dr. Kang Mo Yeon is just awesome. Also, the song  "Always" by Yoon Mi Rae which was played is so fitting to the scene.

🏆 Memorable Moments: Top 5 Funny Scenes from Descendants of the Sun 🏆

Annyeong haseyo!


Descendants of the Sun is a Korean drama that has gained a lot of admirers in the world. Despite being aired for only 2 months which started on February and ended on April, the admiration for this drama is still very prevalent most especially in Asia. Last week, I shared with you the "Top 5 Sweet Moments from 'Descendants of the Sun'" but today I`ll share with you the funniest scenes I have seen in all of the 16 episodes of this TV drama.


1.) "Red Velvet"


This scene reminded me of a popular Youtube video which features a performance by a Korean girl group in an all-boys school. It was really amusing which made this specific part really comical. It may be a part of the Korean entertainment industry`s culture to feature different artists and groups for a specific group of people like the performance of "Red Velvet" for the military.

🏆 Memorable Moments: Top 5 Sweet Scenes from Descendants of the Sun 🏆

Annyeong haseyo!


Descendants of the Sun is a Korean drama that first aired on February this year. It has gained widespread popularity all over the world. Last week, I shared with you a review of this drama. For this post,  I`ll be sharing with you my favorite sweet scenes from this TV series.


1.) "Forget This"


Despite the thrilling activities going on, this scene is particularly the top sweet scene on this list because Captain Yoo Si Jin (played by Song Joong Ki) showed his loving care and comfort towards the abducted Dr. Kang Mo Yeon (played by Song Hye Kyo) especially when he covered her eyes and told her to "forget" what was about to happen at 1:30 to 2:22 [of the video]. If you remember their first split in the drama, Dr. Kang Mo Yeon expressed that she and Captain may have different ideals since Dr. Kang Mo Yeon`s a doctor who diagnoses, treats and heals people while Captain Yoo Si Jin is involved in a profession that may require him to kill. This scene is appealing as it showed Captain Yoo Si Jin`s thoughtfulness and protectiveness towards Dr. Kang Mo Yeon`s sensitive feelings and "innocence" regarding the situation.

According to some online reports, the production cost was 13 billion or approximately US$ 11,047,010.00/Php 515,514,245.16. With such high budget, the whole team of "Descendants of the Sun" must have really worked hard to give the viewers the best TV series they possibly can. And with the widespread enthusiasm and passion surrounding this drama, I think they`ve gotten a flattering response from people around the world.

Banapple is a bakery and café which serves baked goods, cakes, pies, desserts, smoothies, coffee, and many more delicious food and beverage. Besides casual dining on their regular operating hours, customers can also reserve for a banquet room at their Katipunan and Tomas Morato branches. They have different branches in the country but their main kitchen is along Katipunan avenue in Quezon City (Metro Manila).

When we arrived at the place, we had to wait for about 5 minutes because it was full-packed inside. While waiting outside Bannaple, we were already given a number for our supposed table and the menu even though a customer must go to the counter to order and pay (because in some cafés, customers just sit at the café from the time the menus were given to them, to ordering and up to paying).

I had the "Banapple" smoothie mainly because it seemed like the most "basic" smoothie to get since it was named similar to the store`s name. The taste reminded me of  frozen smashed bananas with syrup. I really like it because it was flavorful and really cold.

Greens Vegetarian Restaurant and Café

Hello readers!

Greens Vegetarian Restaurant and Café: Review at www.TheGracefulMist.com

Greens Vegetarian Restaurant and Café is a quaint and small place that offers to serve a variety of delicious and tasteful Vegetarian food and beverage suitable for almost everyone even non-vegetarians. Some of the food that they offer are also suitable for Vegans.

I visited this place on my birthday since I wanted to start my day right by eating a healthy yet delicious food. I had their Carbonara and Calamansi juice since I had a cold that day.

Greens Vegetarian Restaurant and Café: Regular Carbonara (Review at www.TheGracefulMist.com)
Their Carbonara tasted very delicious not only because I generally like eating pasta but because it was actually tasty and creamy. It was great, I throughly enjoyed the Php 80.00 worth of Carbonara with bread at the side.

Greens Vegetarian Restaurant and Café: Calamansi Juice (Review at www.TheGracefulMist.com)
According to their menu, their Calamansi juice is "freshly squeezed". It was served right when I asked for it so I`m not exactly sure if it`s actually "freshly squeezed" since it was quite cold most likely because it was refrigerated. Nevertheless, even though I usually take in concentrated Calamansi juice, this was alright. Its price is Php 60.00.
