Pope Francis is in my country now as I am writing this post. Philippines is the country in Asia with the largest Catholic follower. He will be here from January 15 to 19 mainly to give comfort and love to especially to the victims of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan).
If there is one staple in your closet, what is it? Well mine is red. I like this rich color because it signifies strength, confidence and sometimes power. I usually wear red on days when I feel less confident or if I am about to present something to a number of people. The color somehow gives me the boost that I need.
Wearing red can be intimidating at first. Others find it too strong. I did too initially. I just have one rule when it comes to wearing my favorite color and that is keep it simple.
How do I do this? Well for one, I am always particular when it comes to fabric. The fabric will set the tone of the dress.
2014 turned out to be a pretty good year for me and my family. As we close this year and welcome 2015, I give you the highlight of 12 months that passed. Time does run fast!
It has become a yearly tradition for our family to take road trips after Christmas. Long drive with kids can be tricky because they get bored especially during traffic. When we headed to Ocean Adventure this year, we have 3 kids in the car, ages 2 and 6. Going to and from our destination took us 3.5 hours each way.
I like personalized gifts but since my husband, Daddy S, has a long gift list for office, it will be impractical to give each a personalized one. Since almost everyone likes chocloates, we decided to make it his giveaway this year.
Every year I am looking forward to our office Christmas Party because it is the time to let loose and interact to all the members of our organization. Aside from all the fun, all of us are looking forward to the Christmas theme. I am because this year our group will be sporting winter fashion! We are eyeing the prize on this one so we are going to put our best effort to come up with the perfect runway look.
When I was told that we will have to strut the runway with Winter Fashion, the first thing that came to my mind are fur and coats. For a tropical country like ours, it is tricky to get coats because although we can already feel the December chill, we do not have snow so an overly thick coat will not work. I got my fingers working and searched for the trench coats at Dressve.com and here are some of my favorite Dressve trench coat:
I am just so in love with this white cherry Trench Coat. Who will not smile upon seeing this? It is almost half the price at $43.69. Get it here
Just this week Little H was admitted to the hospital again due to pneumonia. It scared us, and memories of December 2012 came back when Little H had to spend his first Christmas in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). Second to his preterm birth, it was one of the most challenging times we had as a family. Good thing that Little H was a strong boy and his hospitalization took only 3 days this time.
Now that he is at home with us, it made me look back at our Christmas celebration last year, 2013. It was memorable and emotional because it is Little H’s first Christmas at home. Let me share some of our photos:
Expertise is the term acquired when one knows about the details and peculiarities of a particular topic of interest.
When it comes to music equipment and accessories, I go to the expert on brand new and second hand items and that is Musiciansfriends. I am not a musically talented person. However, my husband is. That is why I am sometimes exposed to rock music. However, my knowledge on it is purely general ideas and terms. Since Daddy S is a musician, gifts are on this hobby of his. Of course, I want it to be useful and something that will improve the sound of his guitars. I refer to this website for not only the best deal of musical equipment but also to read reviews and product ratings.
