Shopping for Second Hand Clothes

Online shopping with my own money is one of the things I have enjoyed the most but aside from it I also enjoyed shopping for second hand clothes, it all started when my mother brought me to a second hand shop when I am in need of shorts to wear at home. I have gained a lot of weight after living in abroad for many years and I can’t find the shorts I like for my size so we end up in the said shop.

Shopping for second hand clothes was big no for me before not just because they  have been wore by other people but because I find it embarrassing buying  clothes worn by other people.


Well, that was the old time.  Today, shopping for second hand clothes excites me a lot, finding and buying clothes that are good as new excites me and make me proud of buying them. I felt like I won a contest for able to buy them before other people could see them.

The other day, I immediately saw SALE sign in the second hand clothes shop we frequently visit. Blouses are on sale for as low as Php10.00 ($0.22); it was really a good deal so before we do our purpose in town we dropped by at the shop and sweat ourselves looking for the clothes that will fit us. I am really in need of new clothes since the clothes I have previously bought are already too big for me, yeah right I lose a lot of weight in these past few months not just because of diet but because of personal problem as well.

We ended up buying a lot of blouses and shirts since they are pretty cheap, most of the clothes I bought are in dark color like black and dark blue, perfect for my not so happy feeling!

Oh well, losing weight is expensive not because of buying diet supplements just to lose some weight but because of buying new clothes to wear when you lose weight. Some of the clothes those are already too big for me to wear end up to my mother, grandmother and neighbour.

Sleep Well with Comfy Pajamas

What better way to relax than to sleep? Indeed, sleeping is the best way to provide ourselves with ultimate relaxation. It helps us to replenish the energy that we consume as the hurdled through the day. It also helps the body recover from stress and anxiety that confront us every day.

But sometimes, due to our different endeavors in life like work and school, we tend to set aside opportunities to take rest and sleep. As much as we want to hit the bed early and have sufficient amount of rest, we sometimes stay up late to finish school requirements or do accomplish office reports that are due the next day.

But this is not a good practice. Lack of sleep poses threat to our health. Headache is just one of the common ailments that arise from lack of sleep. It also affects our mood and cognitive abilities hence we become cranky and temperamental when we don’t have enough sleep. Ultimately, lack of sleep lowers our immune system, thus increasing our risk to sicknesses and diseases.

Sleeping should be a prime concern for everybody. We should always make time to sleep so that we maintain our mental and physical wellness.

One way to encourage ourselves to have enough sleep daily is to buy ourselves with comfortable sleep wears and pajamas. Some people even pamper themselves by getting themselves with creative and colorful pajamas. There are also footed and hooded PJS  which is ideal especially for cold seasons. Some may opt for pajamas printed with their favorite cartoon characters like Spiderman and even Angry Birds!

Have a good night rest with these exciting pajamas. You can have them from your favorite stores near you. Some apparel stores have put up online shops where you can choose and pick the pajamas you want. The online shops are complete with items’ prices and reviews to help you decide better on what design you should be taking.

Finding the Budget Perfect Homecoming Dress

Finding a cute dress for Homecoming without blowing your budget can be a serious challenge, especially when you may not live near a shopping center, or have too busy a schedule to wade through the thousands of dresses available online. But with a little focus and a game plan, finding your perfect Homecoming dress 2015 can be a snap.

Early Birds Get the Dresses

No matter how busy you are, don’t wait until two weeks before Homecoming to start looking for a dress. If you do, chances are you might find it, but it will already be out of stock, or you won’t receive it in time for the event. Buying your dress early means having one less thing to worry about!

Pick a Budget, Stick to a Budget

Decide how much you are willing to spend on a dress before you start shopping. Whatever the number is, write it down on a post-it note and stick it to your laptop screen, so you can’t ignore your budget while you’re shopping. While shopping, don’t mess with the view settings on sites so that you’re only viewing best dresses for homecoming 2013. After all, it’s hard to yield to temptation if the temptation isn’t there!

Read Reviews

Pop quiz: What’s the biggest advantage of shopping online versus in a store? Answer: Reviews! Thanks to reviews, you can hear feedback from hundreds of other shoppers on topics such as fit, quality, comfort, and more. If you read the reviews thoroughly, you’ll have a much better idea of what the dress is really like than if you just look at the website’s pictures.

Don’t Go Overboard

Remember: While Homecoming is usually at least a semi-formal event, it’s not on the same level as a prom. So it’s okay if the dress you like best isn’t a wild show-stopper. As long as you choose a flattering fit in a style and color you love, you won’t be disappointed.
