Blue Moon

Blue moon… we recently watched “The Smurfs”… Yeah, you figured it right. I got the title of this blog from that movie. I just find it apt because there are things I don’t do often like reading a novel for leisure, cross-stitching, swimming, shopping and dating with girl friends…

Glam Rock~ Gestating Our Costumes.

63682_10150118394633185_316269648184_7285299_884008_nThinking of what clothes to wear is stressful for me. When we’re told to dress like a rock star… I couldn’t help but niggled. Where in the world should I get the costume? Nonetheless… I was able to tack together every piece from my wardrobe…including my hubby’s [it’s not hard to excogitate his costume since he likes country rock… So a country rock star he became that night] … 

Personality wise, hubby and I are a bit reserved and reticent…We could not go for that heavy-metal-rockstar look. So we thought of country rock for him and pop rock for me.

Home for the holidays

I have not been able to update my blog for several days because my family and I were spending the holidays with our families in our hometown. I have chronicled the highlights of the vacation on daily basis.

Christmas Gifts: Are You Wrapping One Yet?

It is 6 days to go before Christmas Eve… Most people are still wondering what to give for people on their list. Though, we always believe that it is the thought that counts but still you can not just get anything that comes to your sight first when you go to the malls.


We always think of some thing appropriate and usable. And so the picking of gift becomes tough…especially if you do not have much time. So the TIP: Buy gift as early as January especially if you have 100 and 1 people in your mind plus there are so many items on sale by this time…

But for the sake of those who are still on the process of hunting gifts for their loved ones… I have here the lists of general items that are great to wrap for your family and friends.

      • Gadgets
      • Toiletries
      • Books
      • Clothing
      • Shoes
      • Jewelries and Accessories
      • Office Stuffs
      • Home Decors
      • Gift Certificates from SPAs and Saloons
      • Wine/ Basketful of fruits or goodies

If you do not have time and if your loved ones are living abroad you can check or tick this online store. They can deliver the items you ordered for them.

Well, I hope that helps. Merry Christmas and Happy shopping.
