The internet junkie that I am, I come across different things whenever I am online. I particularly love house and home websites. Yeah I am dreaming of having a vacation property in the US. I have 2 sisters there and they don't really have plans of settling back home I guess. Anyways, I came across Branson and I really love the small community that they have. The place is just awesome and breathtaking. I like to live in a house similar to the picture I posted. Having a house amidst trees is just great. The atmosphere's very relaxing. Now I'm going to go through the land for sale Branson, who knows my dream will just come true.
Here's another thing I bought when I went to The Face Shop. I've tried my hand into falsies, now it's again time to try my hand at nail stickers. Well I've been doing my own nailart, but it is just too taxing. I can spend like an hour painting my nails and I really get tired afterwards. Putting nail stickers is an alternative, plus the fact that nail art would look really perfect. No smudges or anything. My fingers look really good with nail art.

I am not blessed with long eyelashes, but I can do something about it. I found this falsies at The Face Shop which they sell at 130 pesos I think. It took me 30 minutes or more to master how to put it on. But it's all worth it. When my niece saw me, she said, "Tita, you really have long eyelashes." See how effective it is? It looked very natural on me I guess. Now I don't need to go for lash extension, I was actually planning to have one, but now no more, thanks to the Face Shop.
On Easter, we had a get-together hosted by my Aunt. Some relatives arrived from the States and it is a wonderful opportunity to have a reunion with my dad's side of the family. After the sumptuous lunch, there was a lot of catching up to do. We broke down into small groups just chilling out with each other. Some played scrabble, while the others enjoyed singing. The boys had fun playing video games. I played a little mobile beauty parlor by fixing the eyebrows of my cousins ^_^ afterwards I had a relaxing ng tickling massage on the massage chair. What a fun day we had!

We went out last Black Saturday because we wanted to enjoy the metro all to yourselves. We were excited to find the streets almost empty, yeah with only a few cars (you can even count using your fingers). Like the picture above? That's is where the bottle neck is every single day, but look just five cars and we're the 6th.
Whoa! No wonder the streets were empty, they're all in Greenhills already. I was surprised finding a lot of people really, coz we used to go out during black saturday and and it was not that full.

Look, I made that! Isn't it pretty? See, you don't need to go to a pro just to be able to have your cards made. You can do it yourself like what I did. I had fun doing it and it's very easy. There are steps to be followed, and voila an instant business card. First step is to pick your logo design, then choose the industry, then pick an image (there are a lot of nice choices), then do your layout by dragging. Simple right? And you know what, they are able to match a business card with the logo you just created...cool! I was really very happy with the business card they came up with. Go ahead, try and create your own branding! It's fun and easy!

I got these awards from The Chairman a few weeks ago. I just don't have the time to post it here. Actually there are a lot more awards waiting to be posted, I think I some I already forgot. My, my I'm being bad sometimes, and it seems like I don't appreciate what other bloggers do for me. Really I am, but there's just too many and I can't catch up. I wish I had a system, but then, even that is hard to follow. Whoa I'm sounding like my whole life is a mess, well kinda or is it the age?

I want these shorts badly, haha as if it's a matter of life and death. I actually posted this at The.Personal.Shopper.Wannabe. I just find it pretty, perfect for summer. It's on sale now but I still find it quite pricey, but never mind, I really want have it by hook or by crook. Hopefully I can have it by the 26th *keeping my fingers crossed*, if it's still available at the American Eagle Store and if they still have my size. I need to surf more for some items that I wanna have, I have a few on my list already and if there's any that I want, I can always email. Haha, how convenient is that?
Funny but this morning I kept on logging in at 3P to see if I had more offers. I didn't see any and to tell you the truth I got very disappointed. But now as I am writting this entry, I've done 2 for them already, yes oh yes! And my fingers can't stop tapping the keyboard. Good thing I am in the mood to write, if not, I would have to sit it out hours and hours just having to think what to write next.

I'm still into Belly Dancing, and enjoying every minute of it. I don't think I can give it up because this is my only form of exercise. And besides this is the exercise that has given me back my curves (ahem). Really I'm not kidding, I used to have a body that can compare to a bean bag, but now no more, and thanks to Belly Dancing. If you are interested to enroll, classes are held every Mondays and Fridays at 6 in the evening. If you want to know the health benefits of belly dancing, read it here

I've been serving the family with different kinds of chicken recipes, and the newest is my version of grilled chicken. You can view the recipe here. Promise, it's very easy to prepare.

I really admire houses with exterior shutters. This is the first thing I noticed when I was in the States. I don't know, but I really find houses with shutters attractive. It adds beauty to the exterior of the house. When we were still in the planning stage of building our house, I was looking at a lot of American inspired houses and houses with shutters really caught my attention. I know you'll agree with me that it's really beautiful. Had I known that it can be made out of fiberglass, I would have considered it. Oh well, maybe in the next construction ^_^.

That is a Hublot Watch. Nice isn't it? I just recently bought a white big faced watch similar to that, so if ever hubby wants a his and hers, I would suggest for him to get that Hublot watch. I know the type of watches he goes for, so I guess he'd love to have that. Hublot watches have become one of the hottest watches in the world, a sought after one I must say. Who would not love their style anyway?
Pardon me, but this is part of my happiness these days. I love dressing up Trixie. Everytime I go to the mall, I normally look for cool clothes for her. Maybe I just miss the days when I used to have bears, yeah lots of them when I was younger. And maybe I just miss the time dressing up my kids when they were younger. It takes away all the stress looking at Trixie in pretty baby clothes.

We had the opportunity to watch Ne-yo live at the Araneta Coliseum last Saturday. There were lots and lots of people who watch. It was a full house, from the most expensive tickets to the cheapest ones. Yeah even the bleachers were full. No wonder Ne-yo said that this won't be his last visit to Manila. He really felt the love of the filipio people here. Despite the fact that he had a 2-night concert, both nights were full. It only goes to show that filipinos are music loving people. The kids enjoyed a lot, even standing up, putting their hands in the air, screaming and dancing. Josh said it was a memorable first concert for him. Ish even said that his brother is very lucky, because the fist concert she watched really sucked big time. Even if our tickets were expensive, we were way at the back. I swear I wouldn't be watching concerts in an open field.
