Sorry but I am a sucker for coupon deals and this new iphone case is also a deal I got from Cash Cash Pinoy. As you know, original iPhone4 cases are actually expensive. The cheapest I found in the market is I think at Php 850. That is not even of a good quality. Glad, one of the groupon deals like Cash Cash Pinoy recently released this great deal for iPhone case. I only got the case below for Php450 inclusive of delivery of the item right to my own doorstep. Fantastic deal right? I love the color. I should have bought the pink one too.
It’s so thin and light weight and comes with a screen protector too

Our December travel vacation is fast approaching and i am making a number of lists already. One, I need to make a new list again of all the godchildren my husband and I have. I need to start shopping for them since we will be gone for the season. Oh yeah, I am a good godmother who never fails to give gifts for my godchildren during Christmas. Second, I also need to make a list of things I would need to get in outlets and stores in US. To say that I am excited is actually an understatement! (lol!). The only concern now is how to save enough so I could do a shopping splurge while we are there. Topping my list is actually to look for some nice and cute Childrens Bedding. We are rearranging the kids room so they can start sleeping on their own room by next year. I also need to get some pretty lamps and accessories to complement a girly room. Aside from that, I am also thinking to get some decal stickers which we can use to aesthetically decorate the walls of the room. On the other hand, I am also looking forward in buying a new set of cookwares. I hope to find a good deal on a Calphalon set. I want to get the non-stick 14-pieces set. Gosh, but we need to travel all the way to Gilroy Premium Outlet just to buy it at a great price. I hope I can get to convince my husband to travel extra 4 hours for it. Hmm, I’m sure my list will be a lengthy one. I better finish it now.

It has been a buzz in Twitterlandia with my online friends for the past few weeks. All mommies are wanting to get hold of these cute animal bags for their sons and daughters. I wasn’t spared to the trend. I also indulge myself to buy for my two girls. It was hard to choose what design to get as I want to buy all of them. I asked each my girls to choose what they like and instantly Bianca said she likes the Penguin…
Margaux of course would choose something in pink, so I got the mouse for her…
Both bags are so cute. In fact, the other designs are lovely too.
Now, the husband complains that I always buy for the girls but I seldom do get something for him. Oh, he was just teasing because he actually just want me to get him new sport tees from coogi. Let me check the site and spoil my man this time

When it comes to summer fashion, the makeup you use can really seal the deal. It’s true that accessories like abazias jewelry are important to complete a look, but wearing bold makeup is just an important. This year’s makeup trends can range from natural to bold, but the bold looks are something very different this year. Instead of neutrals and common color palettes, eye makeup almost seems to emulate the wide-eyed innocence and colors of Japanese anime. The colors don’t even have to appear coordinated between lips and eyes to work this season. Here are some ideas for eye makeup to complement your fashion style.
Daring Eye Shadow Colors
You can spot red eye shadow this season – a new and exotic look – but, that’s just the start. Bright blues and yellows are also present this season. Electric greens and oranges will fire up your eyelids and make them glow, even in broad daylight. To get the anime look, you have to outline the eyes with black liner and use black eye-shadow as the frame on which your bold color sits. Since you’ll get a lot of attention, you’ll want your skin to be as finished as possible to avoid drawing attention to skin imperfections on your face with the bold makeup.
Bright Lip Colors
You might thing that red eye shadow goes with red lips, but you’d be wrong. You can use pink lip color with red eye shadow or vice-versa. If you want a bigger contrast, leave the lips bare or use a natural tone. Lip colors can even mimic the eye colors, like blue lipstick with electric blue eye shadow. However, don’t be afraid to use blue eye shadow with red lipstick. The key for this look is to have fun and let your cartoon character out. The look is sexy and child-like all at the same time, just like Japanese anime.

I have been hearing a lot of good reviews about Varekai, the Cirque de Soleil show in Manila. The show started last June 22 and will be until July 24 only. There are a lot of raves about the show that it has increased my interest to watch as well. We purposely didn’t buy the tickets at first since we originally didn’t want to watch at all. We are thinking to catch Cirque de Soleil in Las Vegas this December instead. But since I got this online flyer, I gave in and just bought our tickets for the July 20 show. Now, there’s an advantage in delaying the decision to buy. The 10% savings will be good enough for our food that night
So if you haven’t bought yet your tickets, here’s your last chance…
Use the promo code: LMPROMO10.

My husband almost ordered desk name plates for me that say: “A True Baghag” or worst “I’m a bag-addict” lol, after he saw my new acquired beauty. Yes, I got a new one but it isn’t those hefty-priced designer satchels. Instead, it is the Cambridge Satchel bag which is beginning to gain popularity as well. It looks like a typical high-school bag made out of a very thick leather. I got a yellow one in batchel (with handle) in 15″ purposely to be used as the new carrier of my Macbook Pro.
It took me a couple of minutes before finally deciding on what color to get. I love the pink, the purple and the red too.
The size was also a hard decision to make. I initially wanted a small one but ended up getting the biggest instead. I am still hoping I could get another cute satchel like a fluorescent pink in 13″. I’m making an excuse that my girls can eventually use it as well You will now why after reading the size guide.
For size comparison, here are the different sizes which I got from their site:
11″ A lovely first satchel or equally a very trendy handbag. The long, fully adjustable strap makes the satchel equally suited to both adults and children. 11″ along top, 8″ height, 2.25″ depth.
13″ Perfect for children under 8 years old who don’t need to carry a school bookbag within their satchel. Also for a slightly bigger adult bag. 13″ along top, 9″ height, 3″ depth.
14″ This will hold A4 sheets. The perfect choice for children aged 7 and up that need to accommodate a school bookbag within their school bag. This is a very versatile satchel and will suit most purposes. 14″ along top, 10″ height, 3″ depth.
15″ A true messenger bag – great for teens, students and professionals alike. Many laptop computers fit in this satchel. 15″ along top, 10″ height, 4″ depth.
I cannot believe that they described these satchels as ideal bags for children starting 7!
Now, drool over these neon colors which will hit stores in Manila soon. These bags will be available in Madison and Chocolate Schu. I got mine from the latter.

This is the Speedy Bandouliere…ok, I myself is also having a hard time on how to properly pronounce it
I have special fascination recently for cross-body bags. I love bags with long straps now after experiencing it with my Mulberry Alexa in a couple of trips that I carried it. It makes you hands-free and you can easily maneuver especially if you have children around. I am “wishing” that I could get another easy-to-carry (another cross-body) bag before the year ends (poor me, I don’t think I could get one just yet) Sad Face But this new LV Speedy is one of the candidates. I wonder if LV will actually release this style in damier. I would probably like it more.
For the meantime, I can only wish that I’m as skinny as the model on the picture! Lol!

I find myself enjoying taking pictures using my iPhone4 and then post it in the Instagram application. Most of my online friends use the same application to share photos. It is fun actually and it is a nice way to catch up with friends. It is like you have your own digital gps camera. When you upload the pictures, you have the option in geotagging the images too. It is such a good way to just share your day’s life through photos.
