Beauty for Less #1: VO5 Extreme Style Heat Defense Conditioning Spray, 24HR Anti-Frizz

For the longest time, my hairstyle has always been long. I really don't style it that much because I have naturally curly hair that's not kinky or undefined wavy that you either have your hair relaxed or rebonded so that you can look pretty much decent. But recently I had my hair cut in a mid-length bob that has to be straightened with an extremely hot flat iron or endure looking like someone who's wearing a big fluffy helmet! But I didn't want my hair to be damaged by heat-styling so I've set out to find a heat protect product.

My New Hairstyle!

So I've been watching hair styling tutorials on You Tube and stumbled upon somebody who uses the V05 Heat Defense Spray and recommended it so I wanted to buy it and found that it costs 204 Pesos in Landmark. It's a pretty cheap price for a great hair product but this is not Beauty for Less for nothing!! =D

I found the same product sold at a much cheaper price! Just 99 pesos!! at the Dollar Store in Market!Market! (Lately I've been finding great deals at this mall!)

Some Heat Defense products tend to leave a sticky residue on the hair and sometimes even weigh your hair down like the Citre Shine stuff.. (I hate those) but surprisingly the V05 Heat Defense spray does not and it leaves your hair feeling soft and touchable and it smells great too! plus it also acts as an anti-frizz for all my Co-curly hair girls (and dudes) out there and for 99 pesos, It's definitely a steal! but hurry now because I think it's only available there till supplies last.

Fashion for Less #1: Bib Necklace

The Bib Necklace is a hot trend that has been making a splash in the fashion scene for some time now. Pairing it with a simple gown or outfit adds that extra "oomph!" to an otherwise boring and plain outfit. The only problem is Bib Necklaces have a quite hefty price tag as designers make it from precious stone dipped in gold or they make it really elaborate so that it scares most of us.

I love trends. I think it makes classic pieces up to date but paying a huge amount of money for a trend that would probably be "baduy" in a few months or so is not my style. So the bib necklace trend was something I was willing to overlook until now...


I bought this at Market!Market! for PHP 295 only! That's pretty cheap compared to other necklaces

Blu Bijoux $118

GB Couture $525

Their other designs:

So now you can try out this trend without breaking the bank!

I've loved to shop since I remember. But growing up in our family means you have to work hard to buy things you want.(We were brought up that way, no tantrums for us!) I would have to save my allowance to buy nice things for me. Don't get me wrong my sister and I were well provided for it's just that I guess I wanted more things. I'm not superficial or materialistic, I just love to shop! (OK now I'm rambling) Well my point is, since I have to save up for things I want, I usually try to find cheaper alternatives to the things I like. A top I wanted to buy at a branded store, I will find something similar at the tiangge. And I have done this through the years and I have noticed that my friends usually ask me to find them a cheaper alternative for the expensive or unavailable things they like here in manila. So this is what I'll be blogging about. I'll try to scope out the metro for interesting stores or shopping places where it won't be too much for your wallets, Sales with good deals, and products even though cheap, will be a good buy! I'll be finding cheaper alternative to much, much expensive things!
