Featherheads

Image
Last week I learned about a cool new hair accessory (well not exactly new, but new to me) - feather extensions.  I saw someone wearing them at church and could not stop thinking about them! I could not find any in the mall, so I went online and found them at Fine Featherheads. These feathers come from roosters, and are colored with a mineral-based dye. A feather extension installation will last up to four months, according to their site, and can be reinstalled right after. I did not want to deal with an installation, so I went with clip on hair feathers, or quill clips as they are called on the site, and I love em! Fine Featherheads has some other cool hair accessories on their site, like hair chalk, and I highly recommend you check out their lookbook before buying - they have great photos of all their products to give you a better idea of what they look like in your hair.
This weekend I am going to attend a birthday party and I am planning to wear feather extensions now that my hair…

Deal Dash

Image
Are you familiar with Deal Dash? One time I was in the kitchen when hubby called me like it  seems an urgent call. So I ran towards where he was and ask what is going on? He then pointed the tv and saw these ad and it is about Deal Dash. He ask me about the ad and told me to look about it. So I did and found this video on You Tube click Deal Dash.

Are you frugal

Image
Growing up in the Philippines I experience many things in life. I do not remember I have so much material things. I do not remember my parents shower us with material things either but we never go hungry food is always there on the table. Because I am the eldest, my mother thought me to be frugal to discipline myself and to prioritize. Very early in life I already know how to budget my money never my parents teach us to go for credit never.
When I get married and transfer here in the US I am very surprise how people buy things in credit. I do not like it because I know it would never do well to anyone. The more you do credit buying the more you go into a deeper debt.  When I see books or any post about money saving tips or any post about finance tips for students, I read it and if the post written in a magazine, I cut it and keep it. Last month I went home and I teach my nieces and nephew to be frugal. I gave them money and observe them how they spend the money.  Some did buy anything…

Strawberry Picking

Image
I can tell summer is here when strawberry picking starts. Yesterday I went to Middleton Strawberry Farm to picked strawberries. I was with my step daughter and grandkids. The weather is a bit chilly but the sun is out and that feels really good to be in the field. I did not pick a lot since the farm is just five minutes away from our house so I can go there every day and pick strawberries if I want to.




                                             Fresh pick strawberries so sweet and juicy!!

Everytime I look at my photos I cannot get over the photos that I took in Singapore. Singapore's garden is awesome one place that I like to take a lot of shots is this pond. As I was taking photos I noticed a girl swinging on the side. The place looks magical and I remember my grandparents said lily pads and water lilies are the favorite of fairies. Do you think there are fairies here?

I was happy when I saw my yellow Asiatic Lily bloom the other day. After the rain it seems all my plants were happy and so some did bloom.

Love My Miracle-Gro

Image
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.      Last year I started to plant some herbs in my flower garden. At first, I planted spearmint, it grows wild, and crazy almost cover the whole flower garden. Then I planted verbena, rosemary, lemon grass, apple mint and chives and they are growing fast too. Of course, before I planted them I use Miracle-Gro and Shake’n Feed All Purpose Plant Food. I do this every time I plant flowers, trees or shrubs. One time I planted three-arborvitae tree in front of our house together with one evergreen tree that my stepson planted in the other side of our house. The difference is that my three evergreen trees are as tall as our house now and the evergreen tree that my stepson planted is barely two feet tall. I always told my hubby about it and to my relatives and friends what difference it takes.        Before spring came, I was in the Philippines while I was there I was already thinkin…

My wish this year is to visit beautiful and quaint town in Michigan. I live here in Michigan for almost nine years now and there are too many towns hubby and I have to pay a visit. The gas here per gallon is $4.15 average and so we agreed to be a local tourist ^_^ This shots were taken in Caseville, Michigan. If you happen to see the map of Michigan it looks like a hand, Caseville is somewhere on the top of your thumb.

Bachelorette Sash

Image
I attended so many bachelorette parties in the Philippines or here in the US but I have never seen the bride to wear something on them. Like what for example? Well like a super glam bride rhinestone sash for the bride to wear on her party. When I saw it online, I was glad there is such thing as like this it would definitely add up the fun. This month I am going to attend two-bachelorette party and so I told the host of the party I am going to bring something for the bride. I tell the host about what I am going to bring so there will be no surprises for the host and she was happy. She said it is also her first time to see beautiful sash for the bride to be and she agreed to my idea. Now that I know, there are so many things that I could add to a party I am bookmarked bachelorette party supplies in my computer so when time comes I have to host a party it would be easy for me to find the party supplies. For now I am excited to bring the sash to the party this weekend I know many wo…
