Missed Out On Some Good Deals

I am just so upset right now. For almost a week I have been checking one of my favorite online stores waiting for some good deals to come up. They have so much pretty tops and dresses on sale that I really wanted to buy but I didn't do it because although they were on sale, they were still a little too high for me. So I was waiting when are they gonna have another promotions like buy one get one free or 50% off.

Just this morning I just check their site again and I didn't see any yet. But when I came home about 4pm from my errands, I checked it again and there was the promotion that I have been waiting for! I was so thrilled to see the "additional 50% off". But I went to the sales page, most of the stuff that I have been eying are gone! UGhhhhhh! I am really so upset right now! There are only about two that's left that I was wanting to buy but I didn't get it! Plus I still have an order from them that is still pending.

The promotion will end on Sunday. I was thinking maybe they'll add more items on sales and maybe I can't find some decent clothing that I would like buy in replace to the ones that I missed out. But if not, well, I guess I just missed out on it which I really hateeeee!

Love My New Coat!

I so love this new coat that I bought last week. Aside from it's double-breasted style and removable hoodie, I also love it's color! I only paid a little over $26 for it from one of my favorite stores online! I was a little hesitant to buy the small size for fear that it might be too tight on me and didn't want to buy the medium size either for it might be too big too.

So I went ahead and picked out the small size, I thought that if it doesn't fit I could always resell it online. And I couldn't be any happier for picking the small size because when it came today and tried it on, it is just a perfect fit!!!! I can not wait to wear this coat now the weather is finally getting cold!

Buying Tool Supply Online

Shopping online is so much convenient for both me and my husband. Aside from having a bigger selection, you don't have to go out and bet the traffic or crowd that might be in the store. Yes, you have to pay shipping but if you think about the how much the gas price cost now, as high as it is, you'll probably come up cheaper buying it online!

Anyway, my husband always prefer to buy tool supply online. It is more convenient for him since he doesn't like to drive too far to get it. We live way out in the country, the stores are at least an hour drive from us, that's why we prefer online shopping.

Officially Fall!

I couldn't be any happier that Autumn season has officially started yesterday! This is one of the seasons that I am always happy to look forward to, the other one is spring! I love those two seasons because first, the weather is just perfect for me, not too cold and not too hot! The Spring season always brings beauty to everything since it is the time where trees, plants, flowers, etc. starts to bud and blooms. And there's Fall season where all the trees and the leaves turns into these beautiful and lovely color combination of yellow, orange, red and well, you all know what I am saying!

Anyhow, earlier, me and  my boys went outside to take advantage of the beautiful weather we are having today. You can definitely tell that it's Fall, it just something the way the wind feels and of course the leaves are falling! While outside, I snapped a few of my flowers that are still left blooming but soon I won't be seeing them anymore! Some of the petals of my Zinnias are starting to turn brown. I also have a tropical miniature Banana plant that I put outside when summer started and it is also about time to put it back inside or else it won't survive the much cooler weather.

So anyway, here are some of the flowers that are left outside. At least, they are still giving colors to our pitiful yard! Another thing I love about the cooler weather is, weeds and grass starts to die, so therefore I don't have to worry about cutting them, but our yard still needs grooming bad! LOL!

My Whirling Butterflies is still giving me lovely blooms, the best part of it is, this is a Perennial so it should come back next year!

I don't remember the name of this plant but this is an Annual plant that I bought from Walmart which means it won't be coming back next year. The reason why I bought it is, first it blooms until Fall season, it is still giving some colors to our yard and secondly, we have this plant in the Philippines growing wildly and I like the idea of having it in our yard. Seeing this flower every time I go outside reminds me of my native land!

Here is my Zinnia, still looking pretty although some of the petals are turning brown!

My Kalanchoe is still doing pretty good!

And lastly, my miniature Banana plant! I can't believe how big my Banana has gotten considering when it came in the mail that it was almost dead. About time to bring this baby inside the house because I surely don't want it to die! This also reminds me back home, we were surrounded of Banana plants where I used to live!

Would Love To Have A Log House!

I adore log houses so much! If I were to buy a new house I would probably pick a log house. There is just so much craftsmanship put in to it and for me it is like a piece of art! I would make sure that I will put rustic bathroom vanities in every bathroom. But this will remain as a dream for now!

Latest Edited Photos On My IPod

 Now I know why there are a lot of people got hooked on Instagram! It's because it gives your picture a unique effects instantly with just one click! I just recently started using Instagram and I do like it a lot. But there is another app that I love better than Instagram and that is Aviary photo editing app that I installed for free on my IPod! I love it so much that I actually bought two sets of different effects. They weren't that much, $.99 cents each and it's definitely worth every penny!

I am just amaze of what I can do to my pictures and don't have to work hard to edit it on photoshop which I am not really good at yet! I'm still trying to learn how to do that. Anyway, pictures below are the latest works that I edited on Aviary app! I also love the collage maker that I got too!

Money In The Mail

I have been getting some money in the mail from the stuff that I sold on Yardsale on Facebook. There are people there that do not have a PayPal account and have to send their payments in the mail. This $20 bill pictured above is the most recent payment that I got that arrived today. I actually prefers payment through PayPal but since some of these people that like and wants to buy my items don't all have PayPal accounts, sending payments in the mail works just fine, so far, I haven't encounter any problems yet!

Anyway, I took the photo using my IPod and of course edited it on the app that I installed there. I just love the special effects that I can do on my pictures! I am getting so addicted with it! Well, I am not alone on that, so I don't really feel bad about it! LOL!

A Must-Have Trendy Boots For Me For Fall!

I have been eying these cute boots that I found on one of my favorite stores online for almost a month now! I would really like to have them for this coming fall or winter. The first boots I am debating what color should I pick in case they go on sale and I'll be able to afford it. I don't have Taupe color yet, I already have a brown color but not Cognac, I really like them both but I only want one! The second is an ankle boots, I don't have ankle boots yet and I like the color and the style of this one! 

Right now I just couldn't afford to buy them yet, too expensive for my budget even with a buy one get one 50% off. The first boots is about $34+ and the second one is about $29+. If I were to buy them two, I will get the second boots for only $14+ but if you add them together it is still almost $50 without the tax and the shipping. So I am just gonna wait for these two to go on sale and perhaps by that time I have enough money to buy them both!

Just Bought Another Handbag

Well I just went against my word about not to buy any stuff yet until I sold everything that I am selling online. But I have to say that this time is an exceptional because I had a $10 loyalty reward that was about to expire.

I sure didn't want it to go to waste because I spent so much money to earn those points and get a reward and it's pretty useless to be a member if I don't use it. Plus the handbag that I just bought is not for me! I am selling it online! My handbags always sells good online so there is not regret about buying it!

I Don't Want To Look Online Anymore!

Shocking isn't it??? Me, don't want to look online? LOL! I'm really afraid to look around online for fear that I might find some good deals and won't be able to stop myself from buying. I don't need to buy anymore stuff until I sold all that stuff that I have already here. It looks like I am gonna open my own boutique! 

My husband said something the other day that it is starting to look like a warehouse because of all the boxes that were piled up from the packages that I received! I rearranged all of that this morning, so I hope my husband noticed it! Anyway, I am just gonna try to avoid to look online so that I won't get tempted to buy anything if I see some good deals!

"What Happens in Vegas, Stays In Vegas!"

I know most of us have heard of that phrase before! It is the popular phrase used in Las Vegas. A lot of people wants to go there to experience the all night and day of fun that Las Vegas can offer including me. It is one of my first top five on my list of places that I want to go to in the future. 

Anyway, we all know anything can happen there including an unsuspecting accidents or that kind of stuff but that shouldn't be a problem since there are so many Clinics in Las Vegas that you can find probably in every corner of the city! Well, I don't really know that it is in every corner for sure but I'm sure there are lots of clinics that you can find!

No More Spending!

WOW I just realized how much money I spent on clothing, shoes and handbags these past few weeks! My intention is actually not that bad, that is to resell these stuff online hoping to gain more money from the little profit I'll make out of them. But so far, I haven't really gotten any good sales lately, I just hope this is not a bad mistake on my part. Most of the stuff that I got are really bargains that's why I just couldn't let it pass when I see that it is a dang good price. 

But I already told myself that I need to stop spending until I sold everything that I bought no matter how much bargains are laying in front of me! If I don't stop now I would be in a world of trouble or if I don't sell the stuff that I got. So I am hoping once I get everything I am gonna list them at one time, put the right price on them and then I'll just have to wait and see if I make any sales!

5 Pairs Of Shoes For Less Than $20

Would you believe if I say that I just bought 5 pairs of those shoes pictured above for less than $20? I paid only $17.50 to be exact, the shoes cost $3.50 each. I bought 5 pairs because I am planning to resell them online. This kind of deal only comes once in a while so therefore I took advantage of it while it was in front of me.

Hopefully I'll be able to get my money's back plus a little profit. I tell you, these shoes are not cheap ones either, it's a Madden Girl brand, it comes from the same company that sells Steve Madden products! Good deal in my opinion, don't you think?

Carry It For Protection

It is such a dangerous world we are living in. Nowadays, it is not so smart for someone to trust just anybody. A lot of people carrying weapons for protection like guns, stun gun, pepper sprays, etc. I really couldn't blame those people because they are just trying to be safe. Even me I am carrying a little knife with me just in case.

But hopefully, I would never see the day where I will have to use it on somebody! Because we just don't know for sure who we are dealing with everyday. Even in your own home, you're not safe. Hardcore criminals are not scared to break in somebody's house and sometimes hurt the people that are living in there. So it is really smart to have some kind of weapon ready for self-protection!

Getting So Addicted On This Photo Editor App On My IPod!

So I installed so many photo editor on my IPod, one of that is called Aviary. I so love that app. I used it all the time to put special effects on the pictures that I took on my Ipod. I actually spent $1.98 on them last night because I wasn't contented with just the free picture editor that came with the app. So I bought 2 more which costs 99 cents each. It's not really that much and my $1.98 is so worth it!

Anyhow, pictures below are just few that I edited using that app. I can do so much special effects on my pictures. My favorite device to use to take pictures now is my Ipod! I haven't even used my DSLR for a while now. Well because there is something wrong with my SD card and USB on my computer is messed up. So I am having to use my IPod to take pictures! Anyhow here are few of my favorite pics below...
