Dress Up in Style

Saturday, July 31, 2010

Do you ever think of dressing up your vehicles? Are you contented with just a stock one, meaning you don't do or add anything to make it more beautiful? Before the husband buys a vehicle, he would normally look for accessories he can put to make it more attractive. I don't know if you are like him. But there are just some who are not content with just the stock one. I don't have anything against making the vehicle attractive as long as there is use to it. Take for example this tonneau cover for truck. When the husband purchased a truck years back, I was so against putting a cover. I thought of the money that will be spent buying it. I didn't see the use at first. But my mind was opened when I saw with my two eyes how those robbers took the stuff that were placed in the truck bed. Then it came to mind, oh it's gonna be for security. I wouldn't want all my stuff disappearing from the bed. It wouldn't be of use too if we don't put anything on it. The initial reason why we bought the truck was to put some stuff to carry around in case there will be repairs to be done. It would also be a big help when there are things that won't fit in the car. In other words the truck would carry around heavy and big stuff, well that's what it's made for, right?


Everything Sold

Friday, July 30, 2010

I'm so happy! I was able to sell all 20 bracelets that I made and more people are ordering. Looks like I'm going to be busy this coming days. I should limit my FB time and FB games as well. I should probably plant seeds that will not rot in just a few hours. But lemme see, probably I can do FB games in between so I won't get bored. But can I afford that? My cousin is ordering another 12 sets to bring to the States, my sister is ordering too. Maybe I should increase my output to at least 5 sets of bracelets a day or even more, we'll see if I can do that. I should be serious about this if I want to succeed. Everyone starts small I always remind myself.


Looking Forward to the Next Road Trip

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

I don't know if I already mentioned here that we started loving road trips last summer. The kids had the time of their life when we did it and this is enough reason that we will do it again. I myself enjoyed it a lot, appreciating the countryside. I think the kids did too since they have not seen much of it actually. Good thing the trip went smoothly. Honestly I was a bit worried since we are not a member of any roadside assistance club. Now that I can definitely say that road trips will be part of our activities as a family, I have to make sure about getting assistance. It will make our trips more enjoyable with nothing to worry about.


iPhone My Love

Friday, July 23, 2010

I think you know by now how I love my iPhone. I'm not really a big fan of Mac products, but this iPhone I can't live without. It's very useful, I don't really need to bring a laptop anywhere which is quite big and heavy. I know you'll agree with me that the iPhone is a wonderful substitute. Now let me ask you, do you have iphone warranty? Mine is already past the warranty so I am really very careful in handling it, not that I wasn't before. I heard that there are companies who offer warranty. I hope I find it here int he country where I am currently staying.


Boohoo But :=)

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

Initially I wanted this sandals but I didn't find it when I went to Forever21 sometime last week. I was able to pick 1 sandals though, it was also cute. I was trying to find it in the website so I can compare the price but it wasn't there. Anyway I paid P475 for it and I was really happy with it. When I went to the counter to pay for it, my heart leaped when I saw the original sandals that I liked held by another woman. I left the line to look for it. I spent a good 10 minutes looking for it and even asked help from the salesperson only to find out that there was only 1 left but a size 9. Boohoo, I'm a 6. But anyway I was still a happy woman going home with another style, and that's what matters most.


How Would You Invest?

Monday, July 19, 2010

What do you think are the reasons why people buy gold coins? For one, the value of gold never depreciates, in fact it appreciates. Another reason is you can easily dispose of it whenever the need arises. My FIL once told me that buying gold is really a wise investment. He went into this a couple of years back and look where it has gotten him now. He is a living example that is why I really recommend investing in gold. If you have extra money that you do not need at the moment, instead of putting it in the bank where the interest rates are very low, why not invest in gold? Don't be scared, like I said it can easily be disposed of, and it can double your investment in no time.


Security with Style

Thursday, July 15, 2010

The husband is really very good when it comes to vehicles. He has a lot of ideas on how to dress up all vehicles. Give him a bus and he can make it beautiful, that's how good he is. We always get praises for our rides. Whenever we are on the streets of the metro, we turn a lot of heads. This is so because he took time to dress up our vehicles, and he does that not only to make it beautiful but he sees to it that whatever he adds will be useful.

Let's take for example truck bed covers, I really didn't see the need to have it. He insisted on putting it to keep robbers away. True enough, I've seen robbers do it while the trucks stop on a red light. They get everything they can and they are fast. All we can do is just look, I'm glad that the husband insisted on putting fold a cover. Now that's what you call style and security in one. This is very helpful really. There's another thing I like about truck covers that you can fold. You need not worry about the height of the things you put in the truck bed. All the stuff that fits, you can actually put and just pull down the cover. For other stuff that doesn't fit, you can actually fold the cover to accommodate it. Just secure it a bit and no worries. I really suggest for all truck owners to have folding truck bed covers, you don't see the need now, but I tell you, you really need it.


Internet Connection Sucks

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

My internet connection is on and off since Sunday. Pages are loading so slow and sometimes it does not at all. I wonder if there's something wrong with the internet as a whole because I am not the only one complaining. Is there something being repaired just like in the past? I haven't read anything about it though so I am not sure. This morning internet is kinda ok, hopefully it stays this way all the time. And oh this reminds me to buy prepaid internet so that on days that PLDT is acting up, we'll have something to use. Internet connection is always badly needed in this household, not to do Facebook of course, heh.


What's There When You're Gone?

Friday, July 09, 2010

Insurance, Insurance, Insurance! How important is this? At first I didn't believe in this, but as I grew older it dawned on me that yeah after all I need to get myself insured. It's not actually for me but for the people I love. At least I'm going to leave something behind when I'm gone. This life insurance will be a big help to keep them started. I don't want to be like those people who instead of leaving a sum of money for the family to use, they leave debt instead. This is just sad.


How Fast Can You Lose Weight?

What do you think is the common reason why people go to the gym? Initially it's because they want to lose weight. I enrolled in aerobics class because I got tired of people's comments that I am fat, yeah bluntly said. Keeping and staying fit is just my secondary reason. Now what about my first reason? Was I successful? Just a bit since I haven't really gotten to my desired/target weight. Sometimes out of frustration that nothing is working, I want to try quicktrim. I know this will help me obtain my target weight. But I am giving myself about six more months to lose it via hi lo, if not I have to go to the doctor and ask if I can use one of those popular pills.


Car Update


After 7 years I had the A/C cleaned. I know I am irresponsible, I promise it won't happen again. I don't know but I took this thing for granted. Good thing I realized that I had to put attention to it before something bad happens which would incur a hole in the pocket. At least I got to spend only P2,000 for the cleaning, lucky me!


Pregnancy and Stretch Marks

When I was pregnant with my first born, I didn't know much. In the course of the pregnancy though, I discovered a lot of things but for some it was already too late. I didn't know much about cocoa butter and stretch marks, and it was actually my older sister who introduced me to it. I was complaining to her how my skin would get dark after I scratch. You see when you are pregnant, you feel an itch especially in the tummy area, probably because the skin has expanded. You can't help but scratch it and it leaves an ugly mark. Thanks to the cocoa butter even though it was too late it still helped. At least there were no additional ugly marks when I had my second child.


Dress Up You Vehicles in Style

Wednesday, July 07, 2010


Is you car dressed up? What do you think of those black nerf bars that you see on most trucks? Is it just for aesthetic purposes? I agree it adds up to the beauty of the vehicle, but more than anything else it helps you climb in and out of your truck. It can also serve as protection in case of accidents. If you don't want to go for a black one, maybe you can take a look at these chrome nerf bars. I think the husband would like this better. I should introduce him to Realtruck.com since he is really fond of dressing up his vehicles. He can also take a look at the running boards while on the website.


I Can't Do Hip Hop

I love Wednesdays! First hour of our fitness regimen is hi-lo, and on the second hour we do hip hop. I love to dance but I don't know why I can't do hip hop. I find myself funny when I do the moves. Is is because it does not fit my age anymore? Or is it that I am used to latin or belly dancing. I don't know but one of my friends commented that when I do the hip hop it's like I'm doing latin moves. I'm about to give up but what about my exercise? One hour is just not enough. Oh never mind, as long as I am enjoying what the heck!



Monday, July 05, 2010

About 4 years ago, I always had headaches. It happens everyday and I take meds almost everyday too. I got to a point where I was really concerned with my liver with all the meds I take for migraine relief. Not that the meds are causing it, but it's a known fact that when you take lots of meds, you know what will eventually happen with the liver.

I thought it was migraine, symptoms pointed to it. Boy I was wrong. It turned out I had TMJ disorder. Good thing our orthodontist discovered it. I was immediately treated, first by wearing a splint, then braces which took forever. I wore braces for about 4 years. Now I'm done with the treatment and I seldom get headaches, thank God.


Me? Fat?

Everyone who has not seen me in a long time says I'm fat! I know and I don't really mind at all or do I? Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. Well I can distinguish a nasty comment from a sincere comment if you know what I mean. I do grow tired of hearing it to the point that I want to try ephedra diet pills. You see if you hear it again and again it makes you think that you really are. Nothing wrong with being fat and all, but sometimes those comments make you feel that you look ugly, duh!


Small Biz


In case you still don't know, I'm back to making accessories particularly bracelets. I did this a couple of years back but took a rest. Now I'm back to doing it, with a different design this time. You can see the entire collection over at my Multiply site. Hope you like it.



My California Adventure

Friday, July 02, 2010

I have some friends who live in California. I was fortunate enough to visit some of them during our trip to the US in 2005. We stayed for about two weeks only and I know I missed a lot of good and fun places to visit. 2 weeks isn't just enough. I thank my friends for driving us around, boy they got pretty cars. I mean really pretty, one was driving a beamer (latest model) at that time. I wonder if she's got California car insurance. I bet she does, car insurance is a must in America. I think it's only here in this country that insurance is optional. But I think most people here see the need for car insurance, what with the crazy drivers we have.
