New Year, New Resolutions! HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Ok, so end of 2012, thank goodness those "end of the world" buzz are not particularly true, for now. 

2012 has been a pretty good year for me, new job, new challenges and lots of traveling. I can't wait for 2013, I think it will be better.  
There are a few resolutions I am hoping to achieve next year, I can't wait to start already!

Resolution #1:
Pray more often, God keeps me grounded. That's all I have to say.

Resolution #2:
Talk to my family in Vegas once a week.  Skype, facetime or viber whichever connects me with my family is just worth it!Wonders of technology!

Resolution #3:
Exercise regularly.  The wedding of one of my best friends is gonna be on May, I am hoping I'm a bit slimmer in 3 months! (Goodluck!)

Resolution #4:
Eat healthy.  Swear off (or at least less of) sweets!
I think this is gonna be a bit hard since I am absolutely a lover of anything sweet!! My cravings is just off the roof! 

Resolution #5:
Spend less on shopping for trendy items, spend more on classic ones.  

Resolution #6:
Save money from salary.  I think it's about time for me to save future,especially if I want to travel to Europe soon!

Resolution #7:
Spend more quality time with friends.  Since my family is far from me, my friends are my family here in the Philippines :)

Holiday Cheers!

For the past weeks I've been preparing for the Holiday Season, went shopping for gifts, shopping for my Holiday outfit , getting glittered and glued for my Christmas decors! (and not to mention exercising a bit to make way for the holiday drinking and eating! haha!).

glittered and glued
my DIY snowflake decor
my DIY Christmas ball with painted melted snow 
center table decor of white and silver, good thing my Laura Mercia candle matches the theme!
my personalized gift cards from Paperio
my DIY gift wrapping.  Love the Moroccan blue and white print wrapper from Wrap Shop 

 Just posting our photo after our boxing session to make way for eating and drinking during the holidays!

Dorothy Perkins presents The Kardashian Kollection

Have to admit it, I am a fan of the Kardashian family.  Though they are a crazy bunch, they are good in promoting their businesses and brand.
While window shopping in Powerplant mall, I passed by Dorothy Perkins and saw that they have already launched the Kardashian Kollection.  I checked out the design and it's a reflection of the styles of the 3 Kardashian sisters.  Love the all black outfits and leopard prints!  The designs are sexy and yet the clothes may be worn by women bordering on the heavier side (like me!).  Overall, I think I will purchase some of the outfits for night outs!
