I nearly choke on my cup of coffee this morning when Sam came to me. I noticed that he was wearing his new pair of socks we got him last week. I asked him if he was wearing the right pair because they had days of the week printed on them and when he did, we found out that he was wearing the 'Thursday' pair instead of Monday. So, I asked him to get back to his room and change his socks but instead he said to me 'Oh mummy, please let me wear them... I'd like to say to my friends at school... Look, I'm a rebel, I'm wearing my Thursday socks on Monday!' I thought it was hilarious that even my bf laughed because he said it with a 'teenager with an attitude' manner! Kids! You think you've seen it all!

Sam's friend at school took this photo in the middle of their class. I just pinched this from Facebook hahahhahaha!

My Mini Haul

Last week, I had the chance to grab a few bits and bobs for my dressing table :). I've started to only get the ones that I need instead mad hauling. However, when I saw that Maybelline was on 3 for 2 offer, I just couldn't resist grabbing 3 mascaras and try 2 products I've not used before :)

My new favourite Mascara, Stiletto

The new Falsies that I've just tried! It's a great mascara, I must say! :)

Colosal mascara... this was recommended by 2 ladies at the Maybelline stand hahahaha! I'm still to try this :)

Look like this is made for teenagers but hey, may just work for me too. Afterall, I sometimes feel like I've got skin of a 17 year old girl... yes, a spotty teenager hahahahaha!

FOTD: Avon Make Up: ANEW Lipstick in Berry Bloom

Just tried to come up with a look using one of my new Avon lipsticks and my verdict to this product is... Woohoo!!! Love it! I love the colour as it's not that shocking bright red and can be worn even at work. The lipstick itself felt great on my lips! It feels really creamy and moisturising which suits my lips that easily dries when wearing lipstick

I think I can wear this lipstick everyday :)

Avon Make Up

Hello again sisters!!!

Well well well!!! I hope you all are doing well. To those of you in the Philippines, let me congratulate you all for the succesful first automated election. I have been following this even in the past few months and I'm just glad that it's all over!!! Let's just hope that the new governement will start a brand new beginning for all of us. At this end, of course, I have fulfilled my duty to participate the election as well although my vote wasn't part of the automation because I had to write the candidates' names on the ballot that was sent to me. I just hope that they have been counted hahahahaha!

Anyway, I'd like to share with you guys the inexpensive beauty products that have made their way into my boudior. As I've been saying in the past post, I am tightening my belt these days because of the project I've committed myself into. It'll be worth it in the future so I'm determined to meet the deadline I've sat to complete it. Wish me luck :)

I happened to work with a lady who has started to sell Avon products at work and whilst on my break, I picked up and browse through the brochure on top of the coffee table. Just like any other brochures... the glossy pictures of the product attracted me into placing orders and try a few.

They were even having gift on offer for purchase of certain products so I thought, I'll try them too :)

Hello again everyone!!!

Saturday last week (1st of May), we've had our house warming party and although it was a little stressful for bf and I, we've got through it and we've agreed that it was a successful gathering :)

I didn't really cook much as it meant to be an afternoon party started from 2pm until 6pm as I was working the next day. However, just to cover the eventualities of guests having something to eat, I cooked some lasagne (with salad) and bf cooked some chilli con carne (with rice). I've also prepared some canape with creme cheese, smoked salmon and caviar. I've also served some champagne and bucks fizz alongside beers and wine. For the kids, we've had some squash drinks and I've also ordered some pizza's (Yes, when it comes to children, you could never go wrong with Pizza Hut delivery ;)). Bf's dad baked some scones for the party as well which was very kind of him :)

As it was such a hectic day for both of us, I've not been able to take decent photos because of having to entertain guests. However, I've managed to take a few :) By the way, we had a good turn out... Over 50 of them came and enjoyed the party consisting bf's friends, a few from work and a couple of my son's school friends. With the help of bf's parents, we've managed to get our house back into a good state that although our last guests didn't leave until past 6pm, at around 7pm, we were sitting on the dining table having teas and coffees... as if nothing happened hahahahaha!

I was the first time I've hosted a party and I think for next time, I'd be able to use what I've learned from it ;) We're definitely having another one. Perhaps, a family gathering in summer :)

Some friends in the patio

Bf welcoming a couple of friends to the party and his mum shouting at me... 'Don't you dare take photo of my wrinkles!' What is she like!

I'm just glad that it didn't rain that day as guests were able to stay in the garden through out the party although for some peculiar reasons, some kids preferred to stay in my son's bedroom and turned his bed into trampoline

Love kids! :)

Lovebirds in my kitchen ;)

This bunch didn't leave my kitchen throughout the party!!!
