No Luck At All!

So I had 4 Secret Reward cards from Victoria's Secrets. Today was the starting day to redeem it. I was hoping that out of those cards that I will at least get one $50 worth but I was dead wrong! All those cards are only the minimum which is $10. I guess better luck next time to me. It would have been okay if you can use all of them at one time but you can't combine them. So I ended up giving the 3 cards away and keep just one for myself. I rather have somebody use it than let it go to waste since I had paid money for it to get it for free!

Black Friday Deal!

Although I did not go out anywhere today to take advantage of the Black Friday sales, I still got some pretty good deals online. Shopping online is as good as going to the actual store, it is probably better in my opinion since you don't have to bet the crowd! In my 7 years of living here in the US, I haven't been out anywhere during Black Fridays. I just wasn't interested I guess. I knew there are a lot of people hunting for bargains and I am sure the traffic is probably unbearable. I actually wanted to try to go out this year's Black Friday but I changed my mind when I thought about driving in a heavy traffic, so there I was doing my Black Friday hunting online!

Anyhow, one of the Black Friday deals that I got earlier was this G by Guess handbag pictured above that I have been eying for how many months! Original price was $69.50 but it is on sale right now for only a little over $48. I would have not thought about buying it if it wasn't for the free shipping they were offering plus I just got $10 loyalty reward, so I ended up paying a little over $42 for it including tax. It is so rare that they'll offer free shipping so I thought that was a pretty good deal combined with my $10 loyalty reward.

Anyway, I don't know for sure if I really want to keep the bag for myself. I mean I really, really like it. I have been wanting to have this handbag for the longest time and grabbed the opportunity earlier to have it but then I got to thinking that I still have so many brand new handbags laying around that I haven't even used, there is just no point on adding more. So as much as I hate thinking about reselling it, I am probably gonna have to do it. I'll just have to see how much I would like it in person, maybe I'll change my mind!

Happy Thanksgiving!

This is probably a little late to greet everybody a Happy Thanksgiving but as the saying goes it's better late than never! So for that, HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYONE! I HOPE YOU ALL HAD THE MOST MEMORABLE THANKSGIVING YET! I am so grateful to our LORD above for giving me the chance to enjoy this day! I have  so many things to be thankful about but I don't have to post it on here. GOD knows exactly what they are!

ICF Energy-Efficient Insulation

There are a lot of little ways to save some money on electricity or your heating bills in this  winter time. There are some people that upgrade their windows to energy-efficient ones where it can help most of the heat to stay in. Other ways that you can do too is by using an insulated concrete forms like durisol as an insulation. 

This insulation is more energy-efficient than the foam or polysterene insulation since it is made from a proprietary wood concrete material or cement bonded wood fiber. Winter is not officially here so there is still time to replace the insulation that you have down in your basement or up your attic!

Take Back What's Rightfully Yours

With our economy being the way it is today, mostly everybody is having a hard time! Unemployment is increasing and not getting any better. People these days are willing to do anything, whatever it takes to feed their family. I can understand that everybody is having such hardship but doing things the wrong way is not fine at all. There are other ways that you can do it without harming anybody or taking somebody else's property.

I am pretty sure as hard as it, that there are people out there that are ready to take other people's estate. If you think it happened to you, you may want to contact North Palm Beach Estate Litigation. They may be able to help you take back what's rightfully yours. Even though it is hard to find job these days, there are still other alternative out there to earn an honest living. Even working at a fast food restaurant is so much better than stealing or taking somebody elses belonging!

He's A Year Old Now

 In case some of you may have not known that my youngest son just turned a year old Saturday. I am still in amazement that it has been that long since I have given birth to him a year ago. It just doesn't seem like it at all. It seems like I have missed part of him being a baby although he is with me almost 24 hours everyday! I just don't know, I guess that's just how time flies so fast these days. To me it's like he has grown overnight! I will surely miss him being a baby. Now he's very independent and wants to do things his way and it is so funny when I tell him no he'll just start kicking his legs and whining. Oh my baby not so baby anymore!

Anyhow, he's 1st birthday went really well. No big party or anything like that. Just a simple celebration with family and a friend. Cooked some of our favorite Filipino foods which I think everybody enjoyed. So all that hard work that I did preparing for his 1st birthday paid off since everybody had a wonderful time especially my little one. I mean I know he can't utter that he had a good time but I am 100% sure that he did because I can just see it in his face! 

Anyway, picture above is one of his cakes, I got him two 1/8 sheets of cake since I was letting him smack the other one. More pictures of his birthday celebration below...

The cutest little sailor I have ever seen!

Not only girls like dolls! Apparently my baby likes baby doll too! LOL!

He sure enjoyed smacking the heck of that cake! He looks like a clown in the pic!

More birthday cakes!

For Those Who Loves Golf

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, in less than 3 days if I'm not mistaken. Before proceeding, I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving day. Anyway, after Thanksgiving is over, it is basically Christmas. I mean let's face it, people are more excited for Christmas than any other Holiday. Stores already have their Christmas items out for sale before Halloween was even here. So wether anybody likes it or not, it's time to get cracking on your Christmas wishlist!

Too bad my husband is not into golfing because I just saw great deals on golf clubs online. It would have been a perfect holiday present for him for this coming Christmas but since he's not into golf, I'm gonna have to find something else for him that he'll be interested in. But for those who has spouse who loves to golf, there's no reason why you couldn't check out the link provided here. They even have hybrid golf clubs that would make a wonderful holiday gift for anybody who loves golf!

Perfect Fit!

The sterling silver wedding ring set that I bought last week came the other day it definitely exceeded my expectations. I think it look so beautiful and stunning although it's not a real diamond. Good thing I am not one of those gals who are so high maintenance. I am just completely satisfied to wear a sterling silver cubic zirconia wedding set. I mean this is just temporary anyway until me and my husband can figure out what to do with my real rings!

But anyhow, I genuinely love this set, it is truly beautiful in person and there is no regret at all that I decided to purchase this set. And besides that, now I know what my real ring size is and it is size 5! This set that I bought is size 5 and fit so perfect on my finger. So happy and very satisfied on this purchase!

My Soon-To-Be One Year Old

My youngest son is turning a year old in less than 2 days. Still unbelievable to me how much he has grown. Why babies or kids grow up so fast these days? I'm sure I am not alone wondering about that. But anyway, isn't he look so adorable in those pictures above? Yup that's my soon-to-be one year old!

Just to be honest, I do have a mixed feelings about his upcoming birthday. But I am not go into every detail about it. I am just glad and so very thankful to the LORD above that he is very healthy and developing normally. He still knowing walking though and still no sings of teeth coming out but I am not worried about it at all. Every child is different. There are some that learns to walk very early and those gets their teeth as early as 4 months as what I have heard. 

Anyhow, as far as his birthday celebration goes, there won't be any party just a simple celebration with family and a couple friends. I am preparing few Filipino dishes and then cakes and ice cream and that's about it. It is as simple as it can get! Been so busy these past few days preparing for his birthday and another busy day for me tomorrow. I am dedicating the day to straighten out the house, not only for my son's birthday, but also for Thanksgiving as well as Christmas. So hopefully it will just stay neat and tidy before the Holiday is over!

Bathroom Tiles

Right now, our two bathroom floor in the house are carpets and I do not like it at all. If only we had the extra money to change it and put bathroom tiles instead. I think, it is so much easier to clean the tiles than the carpet for the fact that you cannot wet a carpet but can do it on tiles. I just don't think carpet is meant to be put on bathrooms. If I have other options I would be so glad to get rid off the carpets on our bathroom floors in a heartbeat!

It's Shipped!

I can't hardly wait to get the wedding ring set that  I ordered the other night. I received an email yesterday that it has been shipped! I am really excited about it. I really miss wearing my wedding ring! And this set that I got would serve as a replacement to my real ones! Hopefully soon can figure out something as to what to do to my real ones so I can start wearing them again!

TV Rack

Christmas is just around the corner. It is amazing how time fly so fast. After Thanksgiving, it is basically Christmas. I already started my Christmas shopping and I am not even halfway done. But I already have an idea as to what to give to my oldest son. I am not planning on buying him anymore toys, I want to give him something that he can use for a long time like a tv rack for his bedroom. I am sure I can find a nice looking and affordable one!

1.25 Carat Round Brilliant CZ Wedding & Engagement Ring Set

So I just bought this 1.25 Carat Round Brilliant Cubic Ziconia Wedding and Engagement Ring set in Sterling Silver a few minutes ago on Amazon. This will serve as a temporary replacement to my 14k wedding and engagement ring set since they're too loose on my finger. I feel so guilty that I haven't been wearing my wedding ring and I can only imagine what people are thinking about me when they see me tagging two kids along. It's not that I care but I do care what my husband thinks about it. I know he doesn't like it when I don't wear my wedding and engagement rings but I already explained to him my reason. I haven't told him about these newly bought rings which wouldn't be for long. This is just temporary until we can figure out what to do with my real rings! I would really hate to take them to the jewelers and have it resized. They aren't cheap I tell you! 

Anyhow, although the set pictured above are not real diamonds I think they are still stunningly beautiful! I couldn't wait to see this in person. I picked this one because it has 5 stars and people were giving it a very good reviews! There were some cheaper ones than this but the reviews weren't as good! I just hope that the size that I picked out would fit for sure! I picked out the size 5, didn't know for sure what my ring size really is, so I was just taking my chances on picking the size 5, hopefully it'll fit! Crossing my fingers!

Shopping Is Truly Addicting!

So I don't really know for sure what to think of myself for spending over $150 just a few minutes ago. I mean I bought those stuff not for me but to resell online. Shopping is truly addicting even though I am not buying it for myself. I have been waiting for this moment to come where they'll have that promotion so I can save more and today it happened.

One of my favorite stores online is offering additional 50% off for the already sale items. This is only for this weekend for Veterans day. So I took advantage of the opportunity because this don't happen often. All I could hope is that I will get my money back and some profit! So hopefully I did not make any mistakes spending that much money!

I May Have Found It!!

So I may have found that dress that I have been looking for and it is pictured in the first pic! The second picture shows what it is look when it is worn and I really like it the way it looks. All I could hope for is that it won't be too tight on me because I ordered the size small. 

Anyway, as you can see in the picture, the dress is just very simple but I prefer simple ones just like that! This dress was on sale but the price was still a bit high for my budget but I went ahead and got it anyway for this might not be available if I wait for the price to come down! We will just see how this dress would look on me!

Still Searching For That Perfect Holiday Dress!

I just don't have any luck in finding that perfect holiday dress. I know exactly what I want but the ones that I really are just too expensive! I have been hunting for that red holiday dress for over 3 years now and had to settle for something that I didn't really like and so far I've been getting rid off them!

So I found the one that I wanted to have so bad and actually almost bought it! But I changed my mind when I was getting ready to place my order but I realized that it is ridiculous for me to spend over $50 for a piece of dress even with shipping and tax included already! That's just not me and I don't have that kind of money to spend on a piece of dress. As much as I hate to close the window I didn't have any choice. I will just wait when they'll have their biggest sale again this year! Hopefully that dress would still be around!

Finally A Houndstooth-Print Coat!

So I finally found me a houndstooth-print coat! I have been wanting to have this print for quiet some time now and just couldn't find one for the right price. This one that I just bought last night was on sale for $18.99 on one of my favorite stores online. I really like its style! I just hope that this would fit me perfect! I bought the size small.

Anyway, I usually don't buy anything unless they have some kind of promotion going on but I made an exception for this coat because I feared that it might not be available anymore by the time they'll have some promotion! And it is always my luck that after I buy something that they'll have the promotion the next day! But it's okay, I do not have any regrets about purchasing it. I love everything about this coat. But like I said, I hope the size small is true to its size and won't be too tight on me!
