Labor Day Sales!

Right now, there are so many stores online that are having a Labor Day sales! I have been checking some of my favorite stores since last night and they are indeed having some good sales! Unfortunately for me, I cannot spend a penny at all for I have promised myself not to do it until I pay off my debts which would probably take a year. 

Anyway, of all those stores that I checked out, I made a mistake of peeking on Coach Factory's site for they too is having a dang good sales on their handbags! There are these two handbags that I am so tempted to buy, one is an animal-print crossbody bag and the other one is a beautiful color combinations of a tote bag. I am trying so hard not to get tempted so I close the site before I do the unthinkable! Below are the two handbags that I am talking about! See if you won't drool over them too!

Love My $7.99 Dress!

Last Sunday was my friend's baby girl's baptism and it was such a great honor for both me and my husband to be chosen as her godparents! Anyway, it was such a special occasion that I wanted to look nicer than usual and one of the dress that I just about over two weeks ago was the perfect dress to be worn for the said occasion!

Below are some pics of me wearing the pink dress! Out of the three dresses, I thought this one was more appropriate for the occasion. And since the dress is above the knee and I don't like to show some skin, I paired it with gray tights!

I know that this outfit won't be appealing to some people out there but I am very comfortable in it and I love my $7.99 dress! It actually doesn't look or feel like that it's that cheap! There was several people on Facebook who finds the dress very cute!

Anyhow, so to complete the look, I wore my neutral color booties that I bought from Wetseal over a year ago and accessorized with matching mint color earrings, necklace and bracelet!

Dresses For Less Than $10 Each

{pictures are not mine!}
A few weeks ago, one of my friends told me that this clothing site is having a sale on their dresses for $7.99 each! I went and checked it out with no intention of buying anything but I was mind blown when I saw how cute the dresses were and the result of that action were these 3 dresses shown above. If I could have afford to buy more I would have bought more but I only had limited of money to spend.

Anyway, these dresses came a week ago and had the chance to try them on. I love all of them especially the maxi dresses of course, love the fitting, the style, the material and most of all, I love the lengths, just perfect for my height! Usually, the maxi dresses that I can find online or in-stores are very long and have to hem them to my suited length, but thank goodness these maxi dresses are just perfect so I do not have to go through all that troubles!

Anyhow, below is a pic of me wearing one of the maxi dresses..
 For a very cheap prices that I paid for these dresses, you can't tell from the material. The materials are as good as those expensive, branded dresses that you can buy at a well-known store!

Chandler Limited Pro Audio

When people trust a certain brand, they will stick to it and is willing to pay no matter how much the price is for they know it will be worth it in the long run. Sometimes, you just got to overlook the price if you know for sure that the quality of the product will save you so much trouble in the future. Just like the Chandler Limited Pro Audio at musician's friend, this has been a trusted brand by a lot of musicians because of it's well-built quality!

Some Of The Widgets Are Gone!

I am just so frustrated that I messed up the template of this blog. I was looking for a new template to freshen the look of this blog and when I tried it, some of  the widgets that I have installed on this template are gone! I think it has something to do with the new blogger update. Before, they used to have an option if you want to keep your widgets when installing a new template or not, but now, it just doesn't do that anymore or at least I haven't figured it out! It is really frustrating because I worked hard on those widgets! So anyway, I am just gonna go ahead and install the new template that I found and start over since I've already lost some of the widgets!

Chicago Massage Therapy Center

If you live somewhere in Chicago and looking for a massage therapy center, you can just click chicago massage therapy center here. My husband has been complaining about his back being in pain for months now. He could probably use some massage therapy to ease some of the pain. It's not that there's not one around here but if only they the specific massage therapy center like I mentioned above, it would be much better!

Military Style Combat Boots!

{Images are not mine!}
If you are like me who is always on the look for what is the latest trends today, you would know that military style combat boots are one the most popular these days. I have been trying to hunt for a pair for several months and just couldn't find the perfect one that would suit my style until last night. 

Pictured above are what my new boots looks like. I received an email from this site which I don't ever remember subscribing from them but I'm thankful anyway for I would have not found these boots. They are more expensive than the regular price that I would pay but went ahead and bought it since they were offering free shipping plus no tax!

Anyway, I thought buying these boots are just perfect for Fall. I can already feel the chill in the air which means Fall season is just around the corner and will be here before we know it . I can't wait to see these boots in person! Hopefully they'll be comfortable on my feet!

Western Digital My Passport External Hard Drive

I just couldn't believe how fast my WD (Western Digital) My Passport External Hard Drive came! I just ordered it on Amazon on Saturday and now it is here! I am a satisfied Amazon customer once again! I decided to buy one because currently, all the pictures that I took over the past years are everywhere! Some are saved on CDs and DVDs, some are saved to a flash drive and some are still on my laptop and I am literally running out of memory on my laptop!

This external hard drive is 1 TB (Terabyte) in size so it should be able to hold how many thousands of pictures! I got tons and tons of pictures that I would really like to organize in one place. It would be an easy access for me once I save them all on this hard drive. It will be a lot of work but it'll be worth it!

Finding Time To Exercise

I am really disappointed of myself for letting my weight go up to where I didn't want it to be! Being a busy mom is not an excuse for being in this situation. There are people out there like Scott Gelbard who is able to find time to exercise even with a very busy lifestyle!

So after realizing that my weight is not going anywhere if I continue to sit and eat more, I started doing the opposite. Finding time to exercise is actually not the hard. You can be very creative with it like for example, when I go to take my kids outside, that's when I do some exercise too. I do some stretching, play with my hula hoop, jog for a few minutes, you know, just enough to sweat out all that toxins that our body doesn't need! 

When I'm inside the house and don't have anything to do and my  kids are asleep,  I also take advantage of the time by doing weight lifting, some squats and a little sit ups. My weight is still the same but I feel so much better and more energized than before. If I keep doing what I am doing now, I am pretty sure that I will be able to reach my target weight!

Cute Little Green Froggy!

I am just so glad that my husband called me when he went to pick some lettuce in the greenhouse and saw this cute little green froggy on one of the lettuce leaves. He didn't tell me why he wanted me to come to him to the greenhouse, at first I didn't want to go because I was washing dishes. He told me to bring my camera for I probably wouldn't be able to see this scene again and I think he was right when said that...

I couldn't believe it with my eyes when he opened the lettuce leaves. One of the cutest creatures I have ever seen. The frog probably just measured about 2 inches long and about 4 inches when it stretch its legs. It was the first time I have ever seen a frog that small! So rest assured I took a bunch of pictures of it which I attached some below...
