Just Like The Real Thing

I'm talking about MAC's powder blush in Ripe Peach. Look!

Three pretty hues in one huge pan. Yup, the pan is bigger then the usual MAC blush. That's why I love it. Thanks to my friend, Smile, for bringing this home for me from HK (and to Doc Chel for being a BI = bad influence). I used it right away and achieved the result I was hoping for. Look again...

Love love love it!!!

Sabine's Extended Birthday

Our baby girl, Sabine turned 4 last April 18 but she was only able to celebrate it in school today. Big thanks go to her teachers : Ms Calotes, Ms Pena and Ms Viray for making sure things went so well. Ms Lennie, the school's directress also helped a lot in making sure this simple gathering took place. Thanks to all of you!

We bought food from KFC...Funshots meals with french fries and iced tea for all the kids. I also ordered a Barbie-themed birthday cake (birthday girl's request) and matching cookies to give away, instead of the usual lootbags. Games were held and a gift-giving ceremony was the afternoon's highlight...atleast, as far as Sabine is concerned.

My favorite cake makers, French Kiss Pastries were tasked to make the cake and cookies. I simply gave them pictures of Barbie as Merlia in Mermaid Tales to help them create the look. This is, by the way, Sabine's favorite Barbie movie. I love that they were able to make Sabine's old Barbie doll look just like the character in the movie.

The artwork on the cookies are really eye-popping, making them "resistable" (because they look too good to eat).

Sabine was happiest of course!!!

Finally, there's a name for them!

JEJEMON. Hahahaha! I've been waiting for someone to come up with a name for them. Some months ago, I begged for people to please stop using shortcuts because the space on Facebook is totally free and there's no charge for spelling words correctly. It's bad enough that people use text speak when they type. But this is just way too funny! If you haven't caught up, click on the link below:

7 months (almost)

I can't believe it's been that long since I last posted an entry here. My BAD. I've neglected this site and won't make any excuses for it. I miss blogging. I miss it BIG TIME. Just that it's so hard to find the time to sit down and update. When I get home from a long day at the office, all I want to do is spend time with the family and go straight to watching my favorite TV series. Nope, not complaining. Work is uber stressful BUT I've learned to live with it and appreciate the job for all it's complexities.
For now, I can atleast make sure I post something once a week ... perhaps on Saturday afternoons when there's nothing much to do because we usually choose to stay home and just be lazy.
Meantime ... I'd like to share this text message received from Dad today : If the sun shines in our soul, does it matter if it rains outside? Hapiness within always overshadows the sadness that some events bring. Have a blessed day!
It has an extra special meaning because some people who are very close to my and DH's hearts are going through a rough time right now.
Have an awesome week!
