Amazing Deals On Name Brand Lipsticks!

I love make-up but I don't wear it often! I just do not have the time to primp in front of the mirror and spend hours to put on make up. The only time I wear one is when I go to church on Sunday and sometimes, when there is a special ocassion!

If I do see a good deal on make up online or in-store, I do buy it sometimes according to how much I like the colors! Anyway, pictures above are my most recent purchase! Top pic is a Mac brand that I paid $7.20, originally $18, and bottom pic is a Clinique brand. The 5-piece set full-size lipsticks I paid only $6 including tax with free shipping after using a $20 gift card I got for free for doing surveys online! The colors are really gorgeous on both brands!

I don't go for top name brands usually because they are very pricey, but if I can avail them with the price I paid, I would be very willing to buy them again in the future and maybe resell it!

Telecaster VS Stratocaster

I can't help but feel envious sometimes to those people who are so musically inclined! I do not have any talent whatsoever when it comes to playing musical instruments, and therefore, I do not know much about them!

Good thing there are places online to read an article about musical instruments if one wants to know more. For an example, what is the difference between telecaster vs stratocaster. I would not have a dang clue, but thanks to the provided link, I will be able to differentiate the two!

My Little Fashionista!

 I sure love making stuff for my baby girl, from crocheting to bow-making! Above are some of her recent pictures wearing the handmade crochets and bows I made for her! She is my little fashionista, living doll that I get to dress up with cute stuff!

Having this little girl has been a dream come true! I thank GOD everyday for giving me this beautiful blessing! I just wish they don't grow up so fast! She's going to be 8 months old next week! Sometimes, I feel like crying when I see her picture when she was born, how tiny she was and now, she look so grown! I love this baby girl so much!

Used Alesis DM5

There is nothing wrong with buying used items especially when you are on a budget. I have good news for drummers who are in need for a alesis dm5 electronic drum module! Here's a chance to get a used but still an amazing piece of equipment that will help you sound like a pro! Why pay a full price when you can have something basically as good as buying a brand new one! Jut because you're on a budget, it doesn't mean you have sacrifice the quality!

Looking So Adorable With The Handmade Bows!

Look who's looking so adorable wearing the handmade bows that I made! I have been making hairbows for my little girl, I just wish that I had different colors! I am definitely going to look online for cheap wholesale bows that I can buy so I can make more in different colors and designs!

I have not crocheted anything for her, I am focusing more on making hairbows. I do miss crocheting but I have to buy more yarns in order to be able to make something for her again!

He Can Only Wish For It!

My husband is into playing electric guitar! In fact, he's got 3 different electric guitars here at the house. As much as it may sound, he still not contented with them, he wishes to own this Epiphone es 339 pro electric guitar! Notice I say, "he wishes"? It's because that's the only thing he can do right now is to wish for it since we do not have the extra money to get it. But one day hopefully, that wish will be granted! ;)

Cute Crossbody Bag That I Only Paid $8

[Picture not mine!]
I get really excited whenever I find good deals such as this very cute INC International Concepts crossbody bag that I purchased on Macy's website on Labor Day. It's a good thing I decided to buy it that day because it was on sale for $22 but today I checked their website, this bag is now up to $58! But I only paid a little over $8 for it! How did I do it? Well, I had a $20 gift card that I earned from doing surveys online! It may not be much but it's a free money that I work hard for! Doing surveys online may seem tiring and time-consuming which I am not going to lie that it is, but it is rewarding at the same time! Because at the end of the day, I will get something out of it to reward myself! It may not be much but it's better than nothing right?

Anyway, so I added a $4 lip balm to get free shipping! Their standard shipping is $9 which I find ridiculous! I'm glad that they offer free shipping when you purchase any beauty items, so that is such a life saver! LOL! The lip balm is the cheapest that I could find, well, it's better than paying $9 for standard shipping don't you think? Anyhow, my total went up to a little over $28, I used my $20 gift card and BOOM! $8 out of pocket! Plus I made sure that I shopped with Swag Bucks to get 6 SB points for every dollar. I will be getting 162 SB points on SwagBucks, that's another $1.62 savings, so basically, I only paid about $6 for this bag! Not bad at all!

Online Music Store

For those music enthusiasts who love to shop for musical instruments or accessories but don't want to beat the traffic on the road and the crowd in store, this online music instrument store is your ultimate one-stop shop to look for that perfect piece of a musical instrument or if you are just looking for accessories. You can do so right in the comfort of your own home and have it delivered to your front door!

Good Deals On Sandals During Labor Day Sales!

It has been such a long time since I bought something for myself, so the other day during Labor day sales, I bought myself two pairs of sandals which are pictured above! It only cost me less than $11 for the 2 pairs with free shipping. Now that's what I call "good deals"! The black one were on sale for $6 and the nude one below were $4! You get free shipping when purchasing two items! 

As cute as these sandals are, if the prices were out of my range, I wouldn't have taken a second look at these because I am all for getting good deals! And let me tell you, these sandals are very comfortable, it feels so nice on my feet! So I got really lucky that as cheap as they were, they still had my size available!

A Secure Store To Order

A lot of people are very hesitant when it comes to ordering online especially now that there are so many hacking going on! Online stores who truly cares should have their customer's information secured as a top priority! When it comes to shopping musical instrument, you can be sure of that Guitar Center has a secure ordering that customers can rely on! They've been in business for how many decades and they haven't yet to experienced having troubles with their ordering!

I Turned 30 Years Young Over A Week Ago

 photo 2e40d9cb-3e5c-49c0-8875-75a7d068a554_zpsaykmitax.jpg
Well, I just turned 30 years young over a week ago and to be honest, I really don't feel any different! I guess they're right about the age, it's just numbers! What matters most is how you feel inside! I really feel the same way as when I was 18 years old. Maybe the only thing that has changed is my physical appearance. Well duh! I now have 3 kids! LOL!

Anyway, I would say that being 30 is great because I realized that I am more matured now. I am also blessed with 3 beautiful children and the best present that I received this year is my baby girl which was born last April of this year! No words can describe how grateful I am to GOD for this beautiful addition! So life is good indeed!!

Playing Their Keyboards

My mother-in-law bought my 2 older boys keyboards a few years ago. My oldest son was showing interest in playing the keyboard. For a while there, he was so eager to learn a new song on his new keyboard but then it got old and now he hardly turns it on, same goes with the younger son.

Well, now that I have another baby, she's almost 3 months old, I will let her use those keyboards so they don't go to waste! I've actually let her played with it already and she seemed to enjoy the sound! So I am hoping she will be interested in playing key boards if she'll get used to it while she's this young!

Newly Crocheted Summer Dress

Wow! It's been a while since I updated this blog! I have been so busy taking care of my baby and other things.

Anyway, one of the things that has been keeping me busy is crocheting. Although, I have not crocheted as much as I used to before the baby was born. My hands are always tied taking care of the baby and I try to squeeze my crocheting to make my baby new stuff!

Picture above is my newest creation! I wanted to make her a summer dress but unfortunately, the dress is a bit big for her right now, so she won't be able to wear it until probably when it cools down. But to me, it doesn't matter, it would probably be better to wear it that time since it is just too hot right now!

Superego Pedal

Finding the perfect musical equipment is probably a little confusing sometimes since there are so many sites and brands to choose from. I guess it all depends on how much features do you want in an equipment. Anyway, if you're looking for a new pedal, this superego pedal would be a perfect choice. One of its features is, it has 3 modes, from a latch, momentary to an auto, so you will have the option to play accordingly!

Modeling Mama's Creations

Look who's modeling mama's creations! So this is Angela Danielle, the newest addition to our family. She was born April 9 at 3:59 pm. She weighed 5 lbs and 11 ounces and 18 and 3/4 inches tall. She was supposed to be born on the 12th of this month, but she decided to come out early, so we've been enjoying her since she came!

Anyway, I crocheted these hats for her while I was still pregnant and could hardly wait to see her try these on and look how adorable she is in the pictures although the hats are a bit bigger. But it's okay, by the time it gets colder again, it will be a perfect fit!

34 Weeks Of My Pregnancy

Today marks my 34th week of my pregnancy! I am so close now I can hardly wait! But we still have so many things that need to get done before the baby comes. Sometimes I don't know if we will be able to get it done since my husband is still not 100% better from the respiratory infection that he got 3 weeks ago! 

Anyhow, the picture above was taken 4 days ago on Easter Sunday. I try to take pictures of my pregnancy to have a keepsake to look back later on. Although picture is not the actual 34th week, it's pretty close enough!

Beautiful Necklaces For The Heroes In Your Life

Those people who go to work every day risking their lives such as police officers, firefighters, soldiers and more are what I consider heroes! I salute and thank those people for being so brave! Not everybody is willing or couldn't do what these people have to do every day.

First To Bloom In Spring

My Hyacinths are to first to bloom in Spring. My other Spring bulbs are sprouting but I don't see any buds yet. This is one of the things that I love about this season, everything is so colorful when everything starts blooming. The surroundings look very happy and jolly.

Anyway, the picture above was taken over a week ago. It was raining that day which I think made the picture look prettier with all the water drops on it. I also enhanced the picture on my computer so the color will pop out a little more. I can't wait to see the spring bulbs to bloom and take photos of them!

Beautiful Crocheted Baby Dress With Matching Accessories

A week ago, I made this beautiful summer dress for my unborn baby girl! I've been wanting to crochet her a dress but I didn't have the courage to start it until last week, because I thought it would take a long time to finish it, but boy I was wrong! If I didn't keep stopping to do other things, I would have probably got it done within 3 hours! I was really amazed of how easy it is to make, of course with the help of video tutorial on YouTube!

I love the color combinations that I chose, just perfect for summer! I also made accessories such as headband, shoes and diaper cover to match it. The diaper cover is a little big for a newborn, but it just means she'll have a while to wear it! I am so excited for my baby Angela to try all my crochet creations that I made specially for her! I can't wait to see how all of these would look on her!

I Will Be 23-Weeks Tomorrow!

Here are the most recent pictures of me while pregnant of baby number 3, which by the way is a GIRL!!! Woohooo!! Can you tell, I'm excited? LOL! Anyway, tomorrow I will be at 23-weeks! Pictures were taken Sunday after attending the morning mass! A lot of my friends have told me that I am not showing that much yet considering I am almost 6 months but I really feel the opposite! I feel so huge already! I am actually about 4 lbs shy of the weight that the doctor gave me that I should gain by the time I give birth which is 135 lbs!

The biggest I've been with my pregnancies when I gave birth was 146 lbs with my second child! My first one, I was 127 lbs! Oddly enough, my second child was a lot smaller at 6 lbs and 13 oz, compared to my first child's birth weight of 7 lbs and 3 oz! I have a feeling that this 3rd pregnancy, I will be much bigger the way I'm craving for mostly sugary foods! But I am doing a little workout to balance it out a little. But as long as the baby is healthy and I won't have any complications while giving birth, that's all that matters to me!
