Time to be Beautiful

Christmas is just few days to go and everyone is so busy. I just hope that this is also the time to give ourselves some time to be beautiful. I went out yesterday and I passed by my fave beauty salon and there I saw it was full of customers. It seems that many are trying to make themselves beautiful for Christmas.

I already gave myself a little pampering last November so I don't think that I need to go to the salon before Christmas. Beauticians these days are just so in demand that's why more people are studying and learning in beauty schools.  They are offering various courses in beauty in many campuses in the US. They have professional instructors and state of the art salon equipments.

Away for Christmas

It was my friend from college's birthday last Dec. 19th. Since we don't see each other in the last few years, I just texted her to give my birthday greetings. I was kinda worried if she got my message since she is not replying so I left a message on her Facebook wall my birthday greetings again.

She replied back there and she's sad that she's away from home for her birthday and Christmas since she is in Singapore for work. She's medical technologists and I'm pretty sure that the hospital where she is working sent her to attend yet another conference. It's just like she's studying once again at a medical school then later on when she's back she'll share all the laboratory knowledge that she acquired from that trip.

I'm sure even though she is away this Christmas, she'll make up for it when she comes back. I miss her and I hope we'll meet again next year.

Wednesday Happy Thoughts

1. Cool weather at early mornings and night.
2. Christmas gifts that I bought. Some still needs to be wrapped.
3. Friends who are so generous in sharing.
4. Done with my Valentine's kit and photobooks.
5. I was able to cook for lunch again after so many days.
6. my 8 yr-old niece helping with house chores particularly cutting of veggies and washing some of the dishes.
7. Oatmeal cookies with raisin for snack.
8. Gifts that I bought for myself. Lots of it! Actually I wanted a document imaging
and a new point and shoot camera but I thought that I'll just buy them next year as my spending his December is already neck deep.
9. Payments from my online companies that I'm working for.
10. Works still coming in eventhough it's holiday already.

Of Business

I have had my share of ups and downs when it comes to business and I have to say that owning one and making it succeed requires a lot of patience, sacrifice, dedication and perseverance. Investing in gold and other precious metals, sounds so very interesting but it can be intimidating as well but getting knowledge about how gold investment works and where to find it is rather easy. When it comes to gold and other precious metals, US Gold Bureau is known to be in authority about that. So if ever I have budget and I want to venture in that kind of business, I already have in mind where to buy gold coins and find more information about gold and more.

Shopping, Shopping and Shopping

Are you done with your shopping? Not me...

This year seems to be my over shopping year especially this November and December. I've been shopping online and at malls for myself and my loved ones and I'm enjoying every minute of my shopping time. Thank God, I have saved quite enough for this year to buy lots of items.

I went shopping again this afternoon and eventhough I have a list and a budget to follow, I've broken it once again. I went to a branded stall and oh my goodness, I was buying left and right for myself eventhough I have too much already.

Actually, I'm having a major wardrobe make-over. I cleaned my closet, gave some stuff while others are sold at our garage sale. My closet is so much ready for new cloths, underwear, bags, jeans and more.

I still wants to go to the mall this week and probably buy new sandals, etc. Plus I need to find a new lipstick and last Sunday, I saw maybelline on sale so I'll check it again. I don't think I need an instant wrinkle remover yet but a good cleanser is what I need. Yay, I can't wait to shop again before Christmas. I want to shop and drop. hehe..

Do you ever experienced running out of printer ink in the middle of your printing and you're in a hurry? Yay, I'm printing some important documents that I need to bring when I run out of ink. I thought I had some spare hp ink cartridges but too bad when I look at my storage cabinet, there's none. Nothing to do, I immediately run to the nearest office warehouse at SM to buy an ink.

Good thing, hp printers and cartridges are cheaper these days so I can buy immediately when needed. Next time, I'll buy 2-3 inks as spare.

Too Busy

Ahhhh.. Christmas is almost here and I'm slowly getting too busy with lots of things.

Shopping, wrapping gifts, attending some events and even working online. Actually I'm getting excited that sometimes I don't want to work anymore. I know you know what I'm feeling.

Looking for Owner Type Jeep

I was texting my uncle back and forth and even sending photos via facebook about the owner type jeep that they wanted to buy. I never thought that owner jeeps are already affordable. I guess they wanted to buy this kind as they'll use it in the province when they go visit the rice fields and the remote areas there. Just in case they'll buy it, they can get cheap auto insurance online for it.

My bro needs to test drive the jeep first and if it's ok then maybe my uncle will buy it.

Family Day

School days for this year is about to end in just few more days due to Christmas and there are already many activities going on in different schools. Just this morning, my brother and his family all went to the school of his son for a Family Day. Good thing it's not a formal affair and wearing long sleeves with ties are not compulsory.

They told me that there are games, raffles and other fun activities. In fact, their family won a food pack at one of the games. By next week, almost all schools will have their Christmas parties and after that it's the start of the long Christmas holidays for the students.

I Want a New Desktop

I've been using my Dell custom laptop for a year now here at home for my work and designing and eventhough it's working great I think I still need a desktop. My laptop is overheating at times and it has only 16" of screen and I want a bigger screen so it can be more comfortable when I'm designing digital kits.

I have an HP desktop at my shop but most of the times I'm staying at home so I need a desktop as well. I'm planning and saving to buy an HP or Dell desktop for I know it will be durable.I went to Greenhills about couple of weeks ago and I saw new models that I'm drooling about.

I guess maybe next year, I can have another desktop here at home so I can be more comfortable designing.

Road Safety

It’s always heartbreaking to hear and see in the news about accidents on the road. The road has become a scary place for people who are driving and also for bystanders. The other day it was so sad to hear that 6 people are killed when a big truck hits their small vehicle. It turned out that the driver of the truck is drunk and sleepy. How can he be so careless? People who are drunk and under the influence of alcohol or drugs should be off the road as they are putting the lives of others in danger.

In Texas, law on DWI (driving while intoxicated) offenders are serious as they can be jailed at up to 180 days in jail and fined at up to $2,000.00. I guess if you have been accused of DWI, getting Houston DWI lawyers to depend you is a good option. Just reminder to those that are driving, please don’t drink or get drunk and then drive as you’ll pose danger to yourself and to other people.
