Blissful Feet: The Shoeaholic

5:59 PM Nana Jover 22 Comments


A guy friend of mine recently asked me why I need to own so many shoes when I only have 2 feet. The question made me laugh I guess some men would never really understand why women needs to own not just 2 pairs of shoes.  Liking, buying and owning copious shoes don’t make me unique.  My shoe collection isn’t that huge yet compared to other girls/bloggers out there. My shoe obsession just started this year each day I am becoming more fascinated in owning every single style and color I guess women have the propensity to fall in love with shoes that sometimes it becomes an addiction. No one to blame shoes is cute and colorful and buying them is just stirring.

Besides, I think it’s fair enough to pamper our feet knowing that it lugs the entire human body weight. Don't you think so?=)

Here are my recent shoes collections and still counting =)) I guess i just can't get enough as they said "A woman can never have enough shoes" and "If the shoes fit buy every color"




This shoes is a b-bday gift from my sister
Brand: Centropelle

This is my b-day gift to myself, I bought it from e-bay
i am drawn to wedge lately prolly because it's too comfortable to wear.


How about you dear friends? What's your shoe story? What is your latest obsession? Want to follow each other? feel free to leave your comments and your blog links.

A Not So Secret Life

5:37 PM Nana Jover 10 Comments


These past weeks I’ve been thinking of giving my blog a fresh new name it’s not that I am jaded with my existing blog name but by some means I’ve been itching to change it .

So, what is the ideal blog name? I think for bloggers it’s really important to choose a blog name that in some way collaborates with his/her personality and life. Something that also speaks of her thoughts, who and what she is.

After a sequence of blog names I finally came up with “A Not So Secret Life” you might ask why this? Well, every person hopes to live a private life, which I really think everyone deserves to have. But reality is - our world is full of haters and gossipers who find tittle-tattles as amusing and digging your life to open is their main target. I myself have been fraying this kind people; I’ve been trying to recuperate my confidentiality but somehow it made me realize that the more I try to do that the more I become intriguing to them. So, to spare them with the hardships of digging, my life is now an open book, in this way it will be easier for them to torture their own selves. Right? Lol

This is the look i came up with last night. I feel so giddy doing it. I spent hours making the right look. I decided to still put my old blog name "Tales of a Shopaholic" below since i'll still be using the same blog address and for the fact that i am still a shopaholic. =))

As for my outfit post:


Preppy Tutu Skirt - Thrifted
Top - Thrifted

How's your weekend everyone?

My Most Memorable Fashion Moment

8:03 PM Nana Jover 9 Comments


One of the many things I love from IFB community is the weekly projects for bloggers. I personally think it’s a good idea given, that bloggers are able to spill out and impart not only outfit posts but also their personal opinions.  This week’s project isIFB Project #60: Share your Memorable Fashion Moment. This keep me thinking about all my fashion moments, from that very first time I wore a cocktail dress to the very first company event I attended to.  However none could really conceded as a memorable fashion moment.

My correlation to fashion developed way before I could truly understand the word “Fashion”  but if there is  one moment I could wholly consider as my most memorable fashion jiffy,  It’s when I first started fashion blogging.  You might ask why?  Well, for 2 reasons:

1.       Fashion blogging had taught me how to be more confident with myself.
2.       I have learned that it doesn’t matter what other people will say as long as you are comfortable and happy with what you are wearing. Dress to express and not to impress -this is the adage I am living with now.

Fashion blogging has opened a totally different world to me. A world that is more exciting and inspiring.

This is the very first outfit photo I captured for my fashion blog that’s why I can say that this is my most memorable fashion moment =)
