Guess Interchangeable Straps Watch

[Image NOT MINE!]
I have been wanting to buy a Guess watch that have interchangeable straps but I couldn't find one that is affordable enough. The ones that I've checked out were almost a hundred bucks which I am not willing to pay at all! Well a few days ago, I could've ended my search. I found this set which is pictured above at Guess Factory online. I so love the design on the actual watch itself and having 4 interchangeable straps is a big plus since most of the ones that I checked only had 3 straps.

Anyway, I could've bought this set for less than $80 including shipping and tax but I thought it was still a lot of money so I took some time to think about it really hard and when I knew for sure that I wasn't going to regret it later, I decided to buy it the next day! But when I went online to buy it, the dang thing is not available anymore! How lucky is that?!

Anyhow, I couldn't keep myself from thinking about the freaking watch, my mind keep saying that I have to have it. So I been searching online for the same set and found several on ebay. But they are way more expensive than what I could've paid for it. One seller was offering best offer. I made my best offer but unfortunately it wasn't enough so I guess I am just gonna forget this watch and continue on my search! Another lesson learned for me that if I want something that bad and found it to just go ahead and buy it and not contemplate it!!!

Thinking Of Using My $10 Reward Card From VS

I just received my $10 Reward card from VS yesterday and I am thinking of using it online since today is the last day of their semi-annual sale plus they are offering free shipping with $25 minimum purchase. I already added some stuff in my card and wasn't really thrilled of the total after the entering the free shipping code and $10 Reward card. It would still cost me a little over $17 for a top and 4 lotions! Still a bit expensive but I don't think I'll be able to get something lesser than $15!

I would prefer going to their store but it's not gonna happen today since it snowed last night. The sun is shining right now and snow is melting but it's just too freaking cold to get out! And I don't feel comfortable driving when the weather is like this. So I guess I'll just have to look around some more and try to come up as cheaply as possible!

I Am So Ready For Spring!

It is snowing again tonight! We are supposed to be getting 2 t0 4 inches of snow. I am really fed up with all the snow and below freezing temperatures. I am so ready for Spring! My second grader didn't have school today and so is tomorrow. They've missed so much school days this year and they'll probably have to make it up some other days like Saturdays or when there is a Holiday. Just like Monday, it was Martin Luther King Day but they had school to make up for the days they've missed. I wish Spring would hurry up already!

Anyway, speaking of Spring, I came across one of the pictures that I took on Spring of 2012 if I am not mistaken. Seeing the picture just made me want for the Spring to come even more! Such a beautiful season Spring is. Don't get me wrong, Winter can be beautiful too and so as the other seasons but Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons of all!

Photo Of The Day!

I am so glad that I decided to go outside and take photos although it was below 20 degrees! Photo above is one of the photos that I captured and I am in love with it! I would say that this is one of the best SOOC photos that I ever captured! This would be the photo of the day for me! I do not know much about photography but I know a beautiful picture when I see one and I consider this photo above beautiful, not because it's mine but because, well, judge it for yourself! I am proud of it!

Anyway, I uploaded this on facebook and one of my friends suggested that I should paint it and I think I will! This would be a great picture to paint! I just hope that I would know how! It has been 7 long years since the last time I did oil painting and I haven't practiced since then. I hope that I still remember the technique! Only one way to find out and that is to do it but first, I have to buy a canvas!

What I Got At Victoria's Secret For Less Than $100

A hundred bucks is actually not that much if you are shopping at Victoria's Secret! But if you are patient enough and wait for the right time to spend that money, you will be amazed of how far you can stretch that amount and how much stuff you can get! Below are what I got from Victoria's Secret for less than $100.

A Dolce Vita boots which originally priced at $99 but were on sale for $39.00, a make-up kit originally cost $50 but with their Semi-Annual sale, it only cost $24.99. Same goes to Lip Sheen and two mascaras on sale for $3.99 and 2 lipsticks for $7 each originally cost $14 each! All of these could have easily cost me over $200 without the tax and shipping but thanks to the semi-annual sale and the Secret reward cards, I only had to pay less than $5 out of pocket and that's including tax and shipping! It is such a wonderful feeling when you get goodies like these but without having to pay high price! Don't you agree? ;)

First Snowfall Of The New Year!

This is what I captured last night as the first snowfall of the New Year went on last night. The wind was very strong that I almost froze my butt off when I opened the door. The snowflakes were not that big but they look really big in the picture because of the flash of the camera. I think it looks very pretty! It actually looks like orbs!

Anyway, we accumulated about 2 to 3 inches until the snowfall stopped this morning. But the sun is shining brightly outside so all that snow is almost melted which is good. We always get stuck in the house when there is a lot of snow outside. So I am really glad that the snow is melting away, thanks to Mr. Sun!

Repairing The Things That Are Broken

We have several things here in the house that needs repairing. They've been like that who knows for how many months. Now that the New Year is here, it is about time to repair them. One of that is replacing the broken catches on several cabinets, so my husband bought catches online the other night. I will be very glad once they arrive for it gets annoying sometimes when cabinet doors won't stay close!
