Two Things.

These are 2 things that calms me down and help me destress.
I do not need to go elsewhere just to unwind.

 I have everything I need at home especially after some quiet downtime with a good book a good old cup of tea. Happy Thursday!

Dear God.

Life can't get any better than this!

Life is indeed good!

How was your holidays?

We had a fun but quiet celebration with lotsa food blessings, hence then 8lbs-weight-gain. Now, it's back to reality!

Looks like our 2014 will be a very good year, good news and small milestones have been coming our way, yay! Thank God because 2013 wasn't that kind to me.

Anyhoo, I'm just dropping by to greet everyone a Blessed New Year. Off to find where to buy a commercial pump?

Building Dreams in our Dreamboard

Hubby and I are so fascinated with beautiful homes. It has become our weekend routine to catch up on our favorite TV shows that feature homes and homes renovation tips and companies that offer renovation services such as this Hardwood Flooring Company . If money was not an issue, we would avail of all things beautiful in our small crib. To be honest, hubby has the making of a very good interior designer, he knows what to put in every nook in every type of the house. We would always frequent this site that has an extensive collection of uniquely-designed French Style Furniture, while European styles are not in our penchant list, I am amazed by the company's collection.

Anyway, ever since we moved in this new apartment situated in a beautiful community, we started to invest in furniture that we could bring in our future home. So whatever we decide to buy, we have to think it over a hundred of times, not only about the price but whether it would fit our future home theme. This is the main reason why my purse shopping has been put on hold for the next couple of years. I guess it helps that I posted a photo of our dream home in our dream board, it makes saving for our future home easier than we thought.

Missing our Pets

Hubby and I are extremely dog lovers. We both left our own pets back home, him a Labrador Retriever and me a Toy Poodle. We were talking about them last night and we terribly miss both of them. My Toy Poodle was left with my mom together with my brother's Poodle and Shih-tzu while the Labrador was with our Uncle. We are thinking of buying them dog supplies at undergrounddogfence.org, for more info you can click the link.

I have the Edible Dental Dog Chews and send it through courier or have them shipped directly to my mom. You see, the site has been know for their Dental Treats and dog fences. It is made of highly digestible natural ingredients, vet-recommended treats that help clean dogs’ teeth, promote fresh breath and healthy gums, and reduce tartar. It is said to be free of salt and sugar and yes, preservatives too. The packaging usually comes in 18 Large size bones that could be broken into 36 smaller treats. You can also check out their site for their Costco monthly coupon book which has a value of $3.50.

Fine Jewelry

I don't know when and how, but I have grown a special love on Diamonds. You see, I had an early orientation on jewelry. I remember my Mom used to sell all sorts of fine jewelry when I was just like 6 years old, so at that age I get to wear different kinds of earrings, bracelets, necklaces and even tried on Tacori engagement rings. I would often fascinate at her jewelry and loved the fact that I am the only girl in the brood of 3. I have lost a lot of her collections which she gave me, I didn't know then that these jewelry cost a fortune and that I should very well take care of them. In the 1st few years of my working life, my very 1st investment was on jewelry. I know about 3 jewelers who would meet me often if I want some jewelry to be customized or new stocks they would want to show me. It has been a regular thing for me and my bestfriend (who is as equally addicted to jewelry as I am) to shop jewelry and meet with different jewelers. But, when I met my husband, he introduced me to diamonds and how I would choose the clearest and best diamonds. He was picky with the engagement ring he gave me, the diamond was so clear, you could see my skin at the end of it. Our wedding rings are Three Stone Diamond Rings. On our 1st anniversary, he gave me Diamond Studs. I was so happy with it. My jewelry collections are concentrated on Diamonds. But with our recent priorities and the big move, it is impossible to squeeze in some diamond shopping in our budget. I would often window shop at HotTrendsIndia.com and find a lot of Discount gold jewelry. This site is an online source for jewelry gifts with quality service and reasonable prices. They have the most extensive collection on rings, pendants, earrings, bracelets and necklaces that I have seen in the net. Everything can be ordered online and they give out huge discounts. I hope that we will be able to fully settle soon, so I could start saving for my diamond collection, after all diamonds are also investments.
