Christmas is approaching very fast, and it's extra special this year because of the fact that we are still complete and happy. I remember that my Mom puts on a color theme every year. So far, we had blue, gold, orange, and even pink.
This year, I wanted to try a color theme on our tables. Thanks to Google, I found these amazing designs that are elegant and easy to copy:
I actually liked the last one the best because it's vintage and glamorous. And since we don't have kids in the house anymore, this is a perfect set up. Although, the table needs a cover. Guess I'll be looking for wholesale table linens soon to perfect the look. Then everything else is manageable since we're just near Divi.
How about you? Are you ready for a Christmas themed table? This is best if you're throwing a party for your family and friends. Let's get ready to be artsy this year. :)

Being free is able to do whatever you want, in your own pace and time. As a right of every woman and every individual, it is also by freedom that lets us make our own decisions and pursue our dreams and passion. But how can we become free if we have insecurities that bring us down? Missing out on opportunities should never be an option and Physiogel has an answer to that.

Dear Typhoon Mario, Please stop. You have to stop trying to scare us. Five years ago, someone like your velocity happened and it was up to no good. I was nursing a broken heart back then. When I cried, the rain cried with me. It was a very sad day for the people in Metro Manila. I was mourning for a different reason.
This year, I hope that the rain will not bring me grief anymore. This afternoon, I was listening to Spotify and their Evening Acoustic playlist soothes me. After a stressful week, this is like a musiciansfriend because I needed this rest. I don't like the rain that much, but I feel that this day happened for a reason.
Now I'm all relaxed for the weekend, I hope it'll be sunny tomorrow. Good night, loves. Pray for a perfect day again.
With the recent typhoon and floodings, did you know that the most dangerous animal bite in the world is also the most common and often go unnoticed? Caused by the deadliest insect in the world, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, dengue is the most rapidly spreading mosquito-borne disease in the world and is more rampant in countries with tropical climates like the Philippines.
Growing up, I am not that fond of eating spicy food. I wouldn’t even dare touch any spices from my Lola’s kitchen. But if there’s one thing I love about spicy food, it would be curry. And I’m quite excited that Eri Curry is just located at SM Megamall – my curry craving is finally satisfied. And the good thing is, there’s more to this curry place.

I am guilty of not being able to take some time and smell the roses. With work, events, blogging, demanding clients, I feel as if my 24 hours is not enough. Maybe it's causing me to look haggard and unhealthy sometimes. Good thing Sangobion and its Go Love Life! campaign tries to change all that. I've blogged last May about their launch and now, they are still helping us women to make our health and well-being a top priority. That way, we will all live the life we love

It's two hours after twelve and the greetings are starting to pour in my Facebook Timeline. It's really amazing how time flies. When I was younger, I'd wait for a birthday card from my Dad because he's mostly abroad.During my 11th birthday, I remember him sending me a "Happy 11th Birthday Card". I was amazed because I didn't know back then that there were cards made for a specific age. I also had one where there are chocolate brands inside and you can claim free chocolates on your birthday. Sadly, claiming the treats are only for U.S. residents.
This year and on this day, everytime I open my Google account, I would see that Home Page. It's not that hard to please me. And if something goes wrong on my birthday, that photo above would make it all worth it. It's also a good thing they aren't real because I'd have to look for plus size yoga clothing and work out for months. Especially this year when I have two weddings that I have to attend to.
But for now, I am thankful for the greetings, and gifts that I have already received. The boyfriend gave the earliest birthday present last July because I've been bugging him that I want a pink Instax this year,which he gladly obliged. This year, I can also see a miracle unfolding before my eyes. I'm not sure if we're finally beginning to mature, but I am thankful.
Most of all, as I turn a year older, I am thankful for I realized the value of friendship and the love of the family. That sometimes, they'd drive you crazy, but when things get tough, they will always be with you no matter what. And above all, I have God who loves me more than anyone and anything else in this world. He who never fails to love and take care of me even if I feel that I sometimes don't deserve it.
It's raining outside... just in time. Rain and my birthday is always a perfect combination. It only shows how blessings are pouring my way. :)
