latest shoe fetish

Been fascinated with boots and heeled shoes lately, makes me think of getting this Plantar Fasciitis now! You see, been experiencing pain on my ankle on the past few weeks, blame it on my wedge shoes, it practically hurt my toes and heels the day after. And because I'm one clumsy mama, I often trip myself causing stress on my feet and joints too. I needed a break with flats and slip on slippers now I guess. Good thing I was able to buy a few flat shoes and sandals. I particularly like my Alice crocs, it is so comfy and not slippery when worn! Perfect for day at the park or malling.

"it' boots

I really want this!!! The fact that it's on sale makes me more gaga! Its less than $50 now and boy oh boy this is so nice to wear during these days with skirt or shorts! I can't wait get my size 8 of this flat boots. Thanks Em for inspiring me, I love your style by the way :D
But can this thing make her way to momma me? Let's see if USPS can do the magic for the shipping thing :) Crossing my fingers now....

Would you believe that my flower bouquet were also inspired by one of their bridal bouquet collections? yes, and it was a total hit! Hubby and I so love my flowers! Also, we were able to snag some fine and affordable silver jewelries that were given to our sponsors, thank goodness for their suggested sites, it took us quick to finally find things that are still missing during the preparation! It was really a hectic thing to plan a wedding, but with great help from sites like this? it is heaven! You'll even love to share a lot of tips to your friends who are about to tie the knot too!

online schooling

online colleges are so in now! would you believe that more and more are choosing to get this kind of education in tertiary level because the comfort it can give the student, imagine, you wouldn't have to worry about going to school late since you can just open up your computer and sign in for your class even in your pajama sets! Funny I know, but it is the real world now, a lot prefer that kind of thing. No need to prep up and have a hard time going to the other town where the schools and colleges are located. It's basically being practical in every means, and it would be a good choice for parents as well because they wouldn't have to worry on daily allowances and clothing budget for their kids! So I guess this will be the trend in the next few years to come. More and more will be interested in enrolling themselves and their kids to online colleges. So why not take your opportunity now to learn more about it.

charms and chains

I found a great site that offers affordable yet super nice designer costume jewelry that sure to capture one's like! I, particularly like this sterling silver charm bracelet, at $129.90 it is super cheap right? it has unique and beautiful charms included and the chain itself is quite big and chunky compare to those other jewelry brands in the market today, actually, the brand is what we are paying high, not the quality nor the design. And as a wise buyer, you have to make sure of the things you grab from items that you buy. So I guess there is nothing wrong to buy cheaply priced items but make sure that the quality wouldn't be in the edge of everything.

Sterling Silver Charm Bracelet

Actually, I am not a silver fan, but with the great and awesome design has to offer, I wasn't able to control myself from buying! I'm still thinking if I can get more items that can be serve as gifts to my female friends and families.


Pinoy Fear Factor host himself, Ryan Agoncillo! saw him last Friday at SMX convention center where he entries his car for the 2008 Auto show. The husband and I were surprise to see him there and was caught awed when we learned that the yellow car (which I thought was cool, the husband thinks the other way around) was his! He was the one whose putting up stickers! :D
And yes, he is super GWAPO! although I'm taller pa than him. But nevertheless, he's really handsome!

Spotted! by you.

I'm a Frappe!

You drink coffee when: you're craving something sweet

Your caffeine addiction level: low

I really really love coffee, and frappe is one of the my most frequent buy too!


Do you like to have a very satisfying beach vacation before the year ends? There are a lot of all inclusive vacation packages being sent on my emails from different travel agencies, really tempting I must admit. But of course, you need to make sure of every inclusion they have to offer, because if you are planning to bring the kids with you, you better get a children friendly package where a lot of stuff can be stuffed to the kids so as not to bore them and all, since it would be not nice to book a package in a hotels that only caters to adults, it'll probably annoys the other guests if you all of a sudden bring the kids with you. Anyways, make sure to book in a renowned hotels and beaches like the Karisma hotels, you know, to make sure that you'll sure to have a grand time the whole vacation days you'll spend on the beach! It's actually just like getting a gold from a pot of everything. Better be sure than sorry, thats how it goes.

touring Colorado

A friend of mine whose luckily living and happily enjoying her life in another country recently emailed me and told me about her recent Colorado trip, where she gained a whole lot of pound after her nightly trips at the famous Denver Restaurants strip! Since she love food and trying out new dishes, it was a heaven for her! dining out at different restaurants with different country specialties, what more can you ask for?! She even had her pictures taken in every restaurant she dine at and almost every cuisine that she ordered! I will ask her to share some of it so I can blog it :D

shopping mania

Yes, I am guilty... of splurging again for the nth time! I can't help it, so what can I do, right?! And now my Paypal's account is almost dying after all the online shopping I made last weekend. Bought a lot of clothes and stuffs for the little girl, just in time for the many holidays and special occasions coming! It is really exciting and therapeutic, the shopping mania I mean :) I know, I should or shall I say I must slow down, for I need to save, alright then, by next year I will surely start saving and help dear husband with money safe keeping.

hyper kids

Below photos were taken last Saturday, during our super advance Twitter/Blogger Christmas party at Citadel Inn, Makati... my daughter, Olin and Estong, son of Alpha were the first kids at the venue, and let me tell you, they hit it off right away! partners in crime! And when Martha arrives, the daughter of Aggie, Olin immediately get her inflatable dog and play with it, which in return makes Martha, the owner so furiously mad! and then there goes again Estong, who plays with it too! They even throws it in the air and scream their lungs out as they were trying to catch the poor doggie.. It died eventually, as to what Aggie had said, it has served its purpose, to entertain the kids and all.. And what are we mommies are doing the whole time? watching them while chitchatting about stuff and all! we even had time to talk about hydroxy cut hardcore! lol
