My Latest Acrylic Painting

 I started this Acrylic painting about 2 months ago, but it is still unfinished! I would really love to finish it, but I just could find the perfect timing! I have so many things to, 2 school boys to take care of, an almost 2-year old toddler plus household chores! I just couldn't get around!

Anyway, I'm really excited to finish this so I can hang it on the wall. If you notice, this painting consist of two 12x12 canvases! I can either hang them together or hang separately. Either way, I'd like to see them hang on the wall soon!

"This Tiny Hand Will Do Great Things One Day..."

I love this picture of my daughter and I's hands that I took from my cellphone the other night while she was asleep!

I posted this picture on Instagram and used one of the black and white filters and I really loved the way it looks! I captioned it "This tiny hand will do great things one day..."

Her little hands are so tiny right now, but I dream that one day, they will do great things to hopefully not only to better herself, but also other people!

As parents, we all dream of a better future for our kids! This is one of those moments that I am envisioning my daughter and my sons' lives as adults. Happy, successful and contented are what I am seeing!

Great Deals at Victoria's Secret With Coupons!

Victoria's Secret is one of my favorite stores online. They sure know how to take care of their customers by sending out coupons for free stuff sometimes with a purchase and sometimes not!

Anyway, above is one my latest deals that I got from them. If you're an avid shopper at Victoria Secret , you're very aware that their clothing are really pricey! That is why it is very seldom that I buy any clothes from them except clearance!

Well, the other day, thanks to a friend for tagging me to a great deal scenario from VS using the $20 Holiday reward off a $40 purchase that they were giving away since late November with a purchase of $40 or more! I got 3 VS Pink shirts plus a full-sized Pink lotion for only a little over $23 after tax, shipping was free!

I was really thrilled with this deal. One shirt I am giving away as a Christmas present and the rest wil be sold online! Deals like this what makes me a loyal customer to Victoria Secret!

The Perfect Car For A Family of Five!

This is a Sponsored Post!

A few months ago, we had the chance to drive and ride a 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan when we went to Florida for a family trip! We rented it for a week and I tell you, it was one of the best road trips my family and I ever had!

The drive was very long and usually kids gets bored easily during long trips like that. But our 3 kids were excellent the whole trip, especially our youngest one who was 14 months old that time. She slept most of the trip, she was so comfortable!

The 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan is the perfect car for a family of five like us! It is so roomy even with six passenger including my mother-in-law and with all the stuff that we packed for the trip like snacks, cooler, diaper bag, clothes for 6 people, beach chairs and umbrellas and so much more! I was so amazed of how much stuff we could fit in that car!

If we were to buy another vehicle, this would be the ideal car for our family! I am looking at Cars.com right now and comparing the best price available near me! I just love this website, it makes my search so much easier! Not only that, this site also provides useful information regarding car seat safety which is very important when you have kids! Hands-on tests of car's latch system on different vehicles are conducted by certified child safety technicians! Videos are also available on the website!

Belle-Inspired Halloween Costume

So my soon-to-be 18 months old baby girl is going to be Belle from Beauty and the Beast for Halloween this year! Picture above is the dress that she will be wearing! It is corcheted by me! Thanks to YouTube, there are so many videos that you can watch and follow if you decide to learn something!

I took up crocheting last year before my baby girl was born. Before that, I never had an interest in learning! As soon as I got pregnant and found out I was having a baby girl, I got interested in crocheting seeing that beautiful stuff that some of my friends posting on Facebook! I thought it would be hard, but after watching YouTube on how to do it. It's not that hard at all!

Now I am able to make stuff on my own without watchig video or following a pattern! But this dress in the picture I was able to make from watching videos! And there are more dresses that I would like to make for my baby girl! Sometimes I wish I can crochet non-stop!!

Remy Hair by Black Hairspray

This is a Sponsored Post written by me. All opinions and views expressed on this post are 100% of my own!

Isn't the girl in the picture above lovely? I especially love her hair! Would you believe me if I say she is wearing a remy hair?

So what is a remy hair? I too have never heard of the term before and I had to research it online. From what I understand, it is human hair collected directly from a hair donor where the hair cuticles are still intact! So it is the highest quality hair extensions or wigs you can find in the market today.

Anyway, back to the picture above, I would have never guessed that is not her natural hair. It looks absolutely natural! I am naturally curly and my hair doesn't even look that good!

Anyhow, if you have that problem of thinning hair, you could always try adding hair extensions. Or if your hair is growing really slow and wants to make it longer fast! Or if you just want to try out a different looks without messing with your natural hair! You can go to their website and find the hairstyle that you like from straight, wavy to curly remy hair, they've got it! They carry different brands too from Bobbi Boss Indi Remi, Saga Remy, Outre Velvet to Sensationnel Goddes, Bohyme and many more!

Acrylic Paintings!

Hello again! Wow it's been a while since I posted anything on any of my blogs! I've been very busy the past weeks that I have not been doing much online! In fact just the other day, I decided to deactivate my Facebook account! I am taking a break from it for a while.

Anyway, what I have been up to lately when I'm not online is I started painting again, but it's not oil painting. I started doing some acrylic painting. I never really liked acrylic painting as much as I like oil, but the oil paints are more expensive than acrylic so I have never really pursue that hobby! But I'm back at it again, but acrylic this time. I'm still practicing how to blend the colors. It's a little difficult to blend the acrylic than the oil since I was doing Bob Ross' wet on wet technique!

Anyhow, below are some of the acrylic paintings that I have done so far! Two of them are on canvas and one on a piece of paper! It's cheaper to practice on a piece of paper if I am not sure what I am doing yet!
The first Acrylic painting on a canvas that I did is this 'Tropical Sunset" is what I call it! This really reminds me of my native homeland, the Philippines!

This is the second one that I did, it supposed to be a Cherry Blossom tree but it didn't turn out the way I imagined it, but it's okay. I'm still practicing!

This is one is a Peacock! I didn't have the right blue color and I really tried to blend different colors to make the right color blue but it just didn't do it! Good thing this was just on a piece paper!

One Of My Dreams Came True!

I would have never thought that I would get to see the "happiest place on earth" but I did! It is definitely a dream come true! I mean really, who doesn't want to see Disney World? I think a lot of people, young ones and those who are young at heart like me are just waiting for the perfect opportunity to see this amazing place!

Lucky for me, that opportunity came for me after saving up for 2 years! I am also so very glad that my 3 kids got to see Disney World although my youngest one who is only 1 and a half years old is not going to remember this day since she's too young, that's why I took so many pictures and videos for the memories to look at over and over again!

Anyway, pictures above are just a few of the pictures that I took. These are one of my favorites! The only regret that I have was not able to see Mickey and Minnie and the princesses! But maybe one day, we will be able to come back and I'll get to see them with my daughter when she's a little older and will be able to remember the experience!

An Off-The-Shoulder Kind Of Day!

It has been a while since I have posted a fashion-related post on this blog. So tonight I am posting an outfit that I wore the other day. The weather was perfect to wear an off-the-shoulder floral top that I found online for such a great price! How's $3.99 sound? Isn't that a great deal? I know what a great deal looks like when I see one! I actually bought 3 different tops for the same price!

Anyway, I paired it with skinny jeans and these flat shoes from Forever21 that actually matches the color of my top! I really love how it looks, very simple, just the way I like! Not too bad for a mother of three! Sometimes I just like to look as simple as possible and some days I like to accessorized, but that day I thought accessorizing was not necessary!

My Purple Butterfly Bush!

Well, it has been a while since I've posted a photography related post on here, so here is one that I stumbled upon while going through all my saved pictures on my external hard drive! This was my purple Butterfly bush before it died on me! I really love that plant and I would love to have another one in the future!

Anyway, I have so many pictures of my flowers from my garden saved up, kind of hard for me to believe that I took all those pictures when I first got my DSLR camera. I still love using my Nikon D3100, although it is 6 years old and a little outdated! But I don't use it as much as I used to! I just do not have that much time to spend outside with three kids, but I would love to do some photography again, especially now that it is Spring! 

So perhaps when everything starts blooming, I'll take my camera out and take some beautiful photos of beautiful things our Mother Nature has to offer!
