Fashion Tips and More for Long Distance Runners

Fully blistered after 63KM run

with other fellow runners in the middle of the night
I hope to one day run my marathon before this 2012 would end but never would I imagine that I would join 13 other crazy runners in their quest for 63KM from General Santos City to Koronadal City last July 13.

the Ultra marathoners with  Koronadal City government representative
I had one terrible ordeal during the 12 - hour run of  63KM and I could only wish to share these tips should you wish to go through a marathon or an ultra marathon for injury - free run.

  • Never run a marathon or an ultra - marathon without prior training program. A typical program  may take 16  - 20 weeks with prior running base.
  • Bring extra pair of shoes and  socks just in case your  feet get soaked from rain or water holes.
  • Properly hydrate and carbo - loaded before, during and after the run for the needed fuel and recovery.
  • Bring first aid like pain ointment or medicines.
  • Bring your own logistics for immediate support.
  • Bring your camera for documentation.
  • Properly dress up for the run. Wear compression suit, head gear and water utility belt.
  • If possible, use a pedometer for your guide.
  • Bring needed accessories like sunglasses, whistle, petroleum jelly and specially - needed running

Ultra Marathon Gears for Me

my first unofficial ultra marathon
my ultra gear except that I shall be wearing my compression tights

I am supposed to run the marathon this July 15, 2012 but since my graduate school required me to take my exam  on the very weekend of marathon, I decided to give it up and wasted my 4 months of training.

Good thing that a no - race ultra marathon is set on Friday, the 13th along with other running fanatics. I can only hope to finish it before 6am the following day as the South Cotabato governor shall be with us to award the finisher's medal.

My game plan tonight is only to run easy and slow, and do some rest walks and enjoy the sights of the nature and architecture including  outdoor gazebo among others.

I just hope I still have the energy tomorrow as I present my computer system to my graduate school professor.

So, wish me good luck!

Kreativ Boutique II: Soon to Open

Kreativ Boutique II and Kreativ Family Salon under final construction

Come July 18, 2012, we shall open our second store and with our newest business, the family salon, we hope to reach more customers and sustain this for long.

So, amidst the busy days between my teaching job and being a graduate school student, I have to hurdle my time and make sure that I get to do what must be done.

I hope I can squeeze in a good  memory foam topper so, I can rest whenever needed. After this busy weekend, we can devote our time on Monday to polish the store and have the stocks ready.

For now, I just have to  do my works as a computer teacher first and as a runner later.

Kreativ Boutique's Website on the Roll

Home page of Kreativ Boutique

Finally, after a summer of web designing works for KREATIV BOUTIQUE, I managed to complete the site and all that is left to do is to fill in all the newest stocks and the rest for customers' online shopping.

So, perhaps this July, we can finally launch it. We hope to reach to wider customer base. We keep our fingers crossed.

Why Planning for a Fashion Store Matters

It is rule of thumb that any business and/or anything including planning a funeral that needs major decision requires serious planning. Not only that it would save us time and resources against wastage and unexpected events, it would somehow make our mind at ease knowing that we considered and covered all required details.

So, what should be thought whenever you consider a fashion store?  You can assess the following:

  • Location. Is your store accessible to the general public especially to your target market?
  • Stocks. Depending on your fashion niche (e.g. fashion apparel for men or women, bags, jewelry, etc), you need a regular supply of new arrivals.
  • Price. Make sure that your store offers competitive prices.
  • Customer Service. Nothing beats a better customer service pre - sale and post - sale service. Not only that you create goodwill among your customers, you build as well their loyalty with you.
  • Quality. Remember that anyone is willing to pay for quality products and / or services. Never compromise then your store name with unwarranted quality.

So, wish us good luck and we hope to be of service to you too.

Wanting Fancy Sony MP3

It has been a while since I lost my one - month  - old then of  SONY MP3. It was the newest release of music  player from SONY and best of all, it is waterproof and wireless that would make my long runs less boring without the usual worry of soaked gadget.

So, to ease my inkling for a music player, I replaced my SONY MP3 with a low - profile music player but to my disgust, it got busted only after two months of use.

I can only wish then that I can buy another Sony MP3 and I know there are  sony coupons that I can use. For now, I can only hope that someone would give me my wish in time for my marathon in November.

Michael Kors Watch Rocks!

Michael Kors watch for women; photo source: Arnel Joshua Lim, Kreativ Boutique

One of my newest additions to my watches is the newest chrono watch from Michael Kors. The strap is enveloped in rubberized white with gold frame and way too elegant with a punk touch to boot.

We have sold a number of Michael Kors watch although some others would find this brand way too expensive but the craftsmanship unique to Michael Kors makes the price all worth it.

So, should you wish to have  one  from michael kors watches, buy only from legitimate outlets. Enjoy!

Spotting a Fake Aeropostale Shirt

Aeropostale shirts have filled my cabinet simply because they are comfy and remain feminine. However, it is not surprising that even Aeropostale apparel are with counterfeits.

So, how do we spot the fake ones? Usually, an Aeropostale shirt would have a printed brand and other details on the neck side with the serial number that complements the rectangular patch.

Also, notice that the authentic shirts are soft in texture while the fake ones are rough.

Lastly, compare the prices because Aeropostales are priced from $10.00 on regular items, so, when you are sold with cheap ones and they are not on sale, then, be more conscious.

If you can manage to buy from the legitimate Aeropostale outlets, then, you can be worry - free.
