One Cent Shoes

I have never seen shoes that were on sale for one cent until tonight! I was checking one of my favorite stores online and happened to be browsing the shoes and couldn't believe what my eyes were seeing, these three different style of shoes selling for one cent each! And I tell you they were branded shoes too! Gosh they don't even sell that cheap at Goodwill or flea market or yard sale. So that was just unbelievable to me.

Unfortunately when I tried to buy the shoes, first they weren't in my size and then when I tried to buy it anyway they were out of stock right before I can even log in to my paypal account to pay for it! I was gonna try to sell them online! Anyway picture below is one of the shoes that were on sale for one cent...I love wedge shoes or sandals! This would have been another addition to my shoes if this was size 7.5 to 8 and still available! Oh well, better luck next time?

This Will Be The One..

I signed up to Coach exclusive invited-only guests sale about a month ago. But I have never gotten any emails about the sales they had since I signed up. Well, they said it's not guarantee that I'll be included I'm sure there are hundreds in the waiting list like me. 

But anyhow, the other day on Ebay, they were featuring the upcoming sale on Coach, same thing only the invited can see and purchase the Coach products, so I joined their list and the next day I was really surprised that I got invited. The sale only last 3 days and tomorrow is the last day. So I have been browsing and looked at every handbags they have on sale and the handbag pictured above is what I like best! 

Unfortunately I can't buy this time. I mean even if they are on sale the prices are still pretty high for me. But if I were to buy my first Coach handbag this will be the one! Maybe next time if I get invited again to their exclusive sale, hopefully this one is still available!

I Want This Bad

I so love this maxi dress that I found at one of my favorite stores online and I want to buy it really bad. What's keeping me from buying it is I do not have anymore money to buy it since I already drained my account from our little trip today. Eating out is very expensive I tell you. Everything is just so expensive nowadays even when you go to shop at thrift stores like Goodwill.

Anyway back to the topic. The reason why I love this dress besides of it's floral design is it's length! It is very seldom for me to find a maxi dress that just perfect for my height. As you may all know I'm an Asian of Filipino descent only 5' and 2 " inches tall. Most of the maxi dresses that I can find online are meant for taller women. The model in the picture above is 5' and 11" inches tall! So based on the picture I am very sure that the length of the dress is just perfect for my height. I am not really crazy about the tube design but I can tolerate it, I can easily put something on top to be comfortable but this should be perfect for summer!

Anyhow, maxi dress is the only style of this dress I can wear. It's because it's long and it covers my legs. I mean I can wear short dresses if I want to but I chose not to for some personal reason! I feel so comfortable wearing maxi dresses that's why I couldn't get enough and looking for more!

Hippie Chic Maxi Dress


I bought this Hippie Chic Maxi dress the other night and I'm not really crazy about it. I mean I like it but I don't think this style of maxi dress suits my body type, I don't really know I'll just have to see when it comes. I had to settle for this one because I looked at everything and there were good ones that I thought was cute but I did not want to buy it from outside the country and wait longer. So I decided to just get this one so I can use my points that's been slowly draining in my account.

This maxi dress was selling originally for $18.00 and only had to pay a little over $8.00 for it because I used the points that I had in my account so it deducted some of the price. I am so glad that one of my friends on facebook recommended me this site, I am selling there too and just had my first sale last week! 

Anyway, as soon as this maxi dress arrives, rest assured I will be trying it on and taking pictures. That's the only way I will be able to tell if it looks good on me or not. We do not have a full mirror in this household where I am able to see my whole body so a few pictures will do! ;)

Gladiolas



Different colors of Gladiolas growing and blooming in my yard. I love them flowers, they are perfect to cut to put in a vase! I am pretty sure I have a purple one too but I haven't seen one blooming this year. There are still Gladiola plants that are just starting to bud, so the purple maybe one of them....

Love Maxi Dress


Picture above was taken on Father's Day last Sunday. We just came home from church and I asked my little photographer which is my 6-year old son to take some pictures. I think he did an amazing job taking those pictures...

So what I had on was a floral maxi dress that I bought at Charlotte Russe, the little white cardigan was from Walmart, the shoes that I was wearing are red wedge shoes with a little bow in the front also bought from Charlotte Russe! I love that store very much but their shoes sometimes really hurt my feet! Anyway, continuing to my outfit...black tote bag and butterfly necklace were bought from Guess..

Sunday is the day I get to put a little make-up on and wear decent clothes, that's why I like to take pictures only on that day when I look pretty decent! LOL.The reason why I uploaded my pictures here it's because I am planning to turn this blog into a fashion blog! It will still be a photography but fashion will be included from now on..I want to change the title and I am still trying to think what would be the perfect title for it! So wish me luck!

More Butterfly


Wow I just love the color of this butterfly. I took those photos earlier this morning. I knew there will be more butterfly on my Butterfly Bush. Gosh I am thinking seriously to get more of this plant. It is truly amazing how butterflies are attracted to this plant and that's why it's called Butterfly Bush!

Butterflies On My Butterfly Bush


I was so thrilled to see these butterflies on my Butterfly Bush this morning enjoying sucking the nectar out of my Butterfly Bush plant! I immediately got my dslr camera and used my 55-200mm zoom lens to take photos where I don't have to be too closed to the butterflies. 

I was holding my 7 month-old son while I was doing it which was not a good idea at all because most of the pictures came out blurry! Well, it's not gonna happen again. So tomorrow, I will be watching for more butterflies to try to take more pictures and this time I'll make sure they will come out crispy clear!

Animal Print Obsession....

I have been so obsessed with animal-prints lately and it seems like I couldn't get enough of it. Okay, I already have an animal-print handbag, shoes, tops and the newest addition that just came today is a maxi dress. Hubby told me that I have a very addictive personality and I think I believe him now! LOL!

Anyway, below is a picture of me trying out my new animal-print maxi dress. I took a picture of it because I wanted to show it to one of my friends on my facebook. She was wanting to see it and I was gonna show her the link but unfortunately it's not available anymore online...

Butterfly Bush

My Butterfly Bush is starting to bloom finally! I used to have two of this plant but the other one died last year, I didn't even get to see what color of the flower is! This one that survived gotten really big about five times it's size when I bought it two years ago! And it really does attract a lot of butterflies based on my experience! I'll be ordering more of this in different colors soon!

Thank GOD For That Rain Last Night!

Summer is not officially here but we already experiencing some heat waves here in NC! Sometimes I think it is much hotter here compare to my tropical country land Philippines. The heat will just penetrates into your skin that makes it so painful sometimes. I mean I am glad that it's summertime but I'm not a big fan of this kind of heat!

Anyway, last night it rained really hard which I am so very glad about because my plants needed some water and I just didn't have the time to go out there and water them one by one. So I am so thankful for that rain last night, that means I will be free from watering our plants for a few days

Osteospermum


Very unique name for a plant, first time I ever heard or seen this kind. My mother-in-law gave it to me two weeks ago, there wasn't any blooms on it and now look at it...the blooms are just gorgeous! Too bad this plant is annual but next year I will make sure I will have more of this in my garden!

The Perfect-Fit Sunglasses For My Face...

I used to get so frustrated with the sunglasses that I owned before because most of them always slides down my nose and if they do stay it always hurts the bridge of my nose. Thank goodness I found these Firmoo Glasses online and I actually got 4 of those sunglasses for free! They arrived this morning and yes they are really nice, a lot nicer than in the pictures. And the best thing I love about these sunglasses is they fit perfectly on my face. It's like they were customized just for my face and another thing, they don't hurt the bridge of my nose at all! Thank you Firmoo!

More Asiatic Lilies



I said on my other post on my other blog that I was gonna buy more Asiatic Lily in different color and they are! I spotted these Lilies at Sam's Club yesterday in the parking lot. It was so hard not to notice these flowers because they are just lovely. I went over there to look and yep I knew I'm going home with them. There are five plants in the pot, I made sure to get the ones that has many buds and hasn't bloom yet. So today when I went out first thing I noticed when I stepped outside is one of the Lilies is blooming. Gorgeous bloom indeed!
