Arm Party!!!!

I have seen my favorite bloggers who are into the arm party thing. As far as I can remember, I started doing this during the 90s, but back then, I used rows and rows of swarovski bracelets in different colors!!! It's like jewels wrapped around your wrist! I just loved the bling, and I remember my friends have asked me why do I put so much of those, it looked weird! And my mom even said, I was crazy putting on so much bracelets on my wrist, it was well, out of this world! Well, knowing me, I just brushed it off and pretended I didn't hear anything! Haha! 
Now, I'm glad that it's back!!! I love seeing groups of fabulous bangles/cuffs/bracelets all together!!! It really is a party! 

 Here are photos of my arm party...

Birthday Wish - Time to Give Back

One of my birthday wishes is to be able to visit an orphanage.  Thanks to one of my friends, she mentioned about Shepherd of the Hills.  This is a Christian Home Care Organization which helps neglected, abused, abandoned and underprivileged children.  The organization has many programs like Home care program, Music and arts, sports, educational program etc. These programs help children grow to be a positive and healthy adult. 

When we arrived in the home, we were welcomed with wonderful smiles.  I immediately introduced my friends who supported and donated as well, for the supplies needed in the home (toiletries, canned goods, clothing and school supplies). 
I informed the kids that the theme of the party was Prince and Princesses, of course I asked my friends to wear pink shirts!  We served spaghetti, BBQ, burger, cake and ice cream!  In return, these kids surprised us with a wonderful performance (violins and guitar!), which left us in awe.

While watching them perform, I came to realize, as a blogger, we usually buy new things for our wardrobe.  I purchase a bag which amounts to an expense of a family for the whole year (maybe not even close!). I am very fortunate.  I have a loving family, a home, supportive friends and continuous income.  The feeling after the event was and still is indescribable, I feel a sense of contentment that I promised myself while driving away, I will remember to go back and share my blessings, as these angels have touched my heart.

me and my friends wore tiaras, mine is the gold one of course!

Caleb.  Half Bangladesh, half Filipino.  He was abandoned in a hospital.  The doctors diagnosed him as blind, but thankfully his eye sight has improved, he know sees shadows.

My Birthday Celebration!

Hiya Pinkmates!  It's April 10 and it's my birthday!  That's another year older, but it doesn't matter, there are a lot of blessings to be grateful for! 
Thankful that Skype is easily accessible, I can always talk to my family in Vegas!  I thank my lovely friends who are also my family.  I'm grateful for my current job and soon will have a new one - I've finally have the courage to achieve my goal - fashion or design of course! (that's a another story, will tell you all about it soon!)

OOOH! Flowers Galore!

Spring season makes us think about perfect weather and flowers.   Although we do not have spring in the Philippines ( as we only have 2 seasons, either sunny or rainy season... I know, I know it's pretty boring!),  I honor the season through my events! 

I love these pretty bloomers we used during my event in the Miele Masters Series last week. Can't help being trigger happy capturing their beauty in all angles!

Ode To Hunger Games

So I'm sure most of you have watched Hunger Games! So what do you guys think? I love the production!  That's how I imagined the scenes, the look of the capitol and the costumes when I read the book.  I just realized that looking through some of my stuff, I have items that resemble The Mockingjay! I love it!
