PUMPKIN PICKING DAY

It is my oldest and youngest second year of Halloween pumpkin picking and etc.

We make it as a calendar to go the pumpkin patch, corn maze, hayride, food stalls, and other Halloween activities for the kids every year! It is something they look forward to. They had so much fun although the rides were not that many. My husband and I enjoyed the food especially the freshly squeezed lemonade. It was a hot day while we were there. As we about to leave it was pouring. That was our luck! At least, that part is done!

STYLING & INVESTING DESIGNER ITEMS

While we were taking these photos yesterday, it was still hot outside! I was dying to style my favorite booties and leather jackets because it’s fall! Fall is my favorite season.

Three years ago as a career woman, I worked hard to be able to save and send money for my family back home in the Philippines. Thus, I spoiled myself with great things. Meaning designer handbags and shoes. Apart from all the designer gifts from my supportive husband and my latest employer. There were times, my mind and heart battled for which is “want and need”. There were times, I just had to let my heart go with what I want because I believe I deserved them. I had invested into good stuff which I knew it is something worth keeping for a long period of time. I’ll say all of them are in great condition because I take good care of them.

Designer things are definitely my guiltiest pleasure! A designer pieces especially bags will take the look to a whole new level. A simple outfit pair with designer handbags, depending on your style it could be a designer pair of shoes, belts, statement jewelries can elevate your outfit and add interest! There a plenty of online resellers or consignment stores for pre-owned designer stuff that are less pricey. Do a little bit of research before buying the items. There also a lot of scams out there, so be careful! I prefer quality over quantity! How about you?

MAKE-UP HAUL – CHRISTIAN DIOR COLLECTION

–Sharing my designer make-up haul at Neiman Marcus–

Hello Make-up Lovers,

I am not a make-up artist nor very good at doing it but I can tell you I can do a little bit. Learned it from work, sister, friends, youtube and other social media resources. Back in the day, I’m not an avid fan of any make-up stuff except the liptick or lipgloss. Using different shades of lipstick is the easiest way to spice up your look. I have a sensitive skin that easily gets irritation. I remember washing my face three times or more with just a facial/body soap. In my country, we cannot afford to buy the usual make up remover, so and so. So we gotta do what we had to do. Later on, I started to do some more research on how to apply them because it was necessary for my previous jobs. I had to look good. Look good, meaning presentable because I travel with my previous bosses anywhere in the United States. Then, I did the basics — eyebrow, light eyeshadow, blush on and lipstick and I’m all set. Now, I’m getting hang of it and wanted to learn more and more.

FALL COLORS — STYLING MY TASSEL OTS TOP

Happy Thursday! As for me, those are the times that I feel so miserable. Last night, I had so many things going on in my mind. I was trying to sleep at 1:45AM, and I wasn’t comfortable. Then all of the sudden it is 4:30AM and I am wide awake. I tried so hard to erase all that was bothering my mind, because I had to wake up 6:30AM to get my kids ready for school. So yes, I took an hour nap until my phone rang for the alarm.

After I dropped my kids off in school, fed Mason, and got things settled. I decided to put make-up on and curled my hair from the new curling wand I bought from L’ange. I honestly don’t know how to curl my hair with a wand. But I have seen many reviewers online curling their hair. I was brave enough to try it.

I set the timer on to know how many minutes it will take to get done. Why I have to get these tasks done in a short period of time. Besides, watching my 15 months old son, I have to get them done so when my husband enters the door he can take pictures. He is working night shift in Miami and he usually gets home around eight-thirtyish.

The moment you plug the thing on it gets hot pretty quickly. It is dangerous for you and for the people around you. Distance yourself from children. Take extra precautions using the wand. Use the gloves that were included in the package. Wear a scarf or towel around your neck to prevent burning. I think I did pretty good for the first time.
