I finally found the shoes that matched my taste and budget! That was my second goal - the first one being going back to having an exercise regimen. The rubber shoes business has become more diverse and much more expensive over the years since my track days (long ago in a land far, far away). Add the fact that I'm a self-confessed Adidas girl, that limits my selection already.
I've always admired roman shades with the elegant cascading effect of its slats as it rolls up and down. Of course, the mechanism doesn't come cheap. That's why I end up just admiring them. I would've tried to do a DIY thing with it if I didn't fail sewing during my Home Economics days in school. I was forced to wait for the apple to fall from the tree.

I'm usually up for a good pair of comfy shoes. I'm not a shoe freak, I just keep some basic ones - casual and formal heels in black, off white, and brown; a pair of rain boots, and; red flats. Having only a pair of flats (in a striking color also), told me that I need another pair in a neutral color. Shoes can be a challenge for me since I have wide feet. So, comfort IS a big issue.
Now, this is something I really have to go giddy about. I've been spending months trying to look for dining chairs. I know, I know, lots of them out there, but it's not easy to match one's preference with an item's price tag.
Not all chairs are created equal. I like dining chairs armless, with a high-back and, of course, comfortable. My design inspiration were the Denise Chairs in this photo:
A challenge that we have with the bathroom is that we need to incorporate the color orange in it. More of a feng shui thing. If you're to look at the bathrooms at Edsa Shangri-la, each cubicle has a piece of big, orange tile in it. Thing is, I don't want orange tiles in the bathroom. So, we opted to bring in the orange through the accessories instead.
Well, you know me when it comes to the "s" word... I go in to see if there's anything interesting.

Group purchase sites have sprouted the Philippine web population like a plague. Oftentimes offering food or vanity deals, I don't end up jumping on every offer. Its going to be offered again anyway, if not a better offer would come along in the future. SO, I try to look out more for the ones that are hard to come by.
With beer being cheaper than fuel prices nowadays, Deal Dozen has managed to snatch a GREAT deal from Caltex. In celebration of its 75 years of existence, Caltex is offering 40% discount on fuel. You read it right...40%!

Although the claiming period is still in September, it's still a good deal. By the way, I am not connected with either Deal Dozen or Caltex. I'm merely sharing a useful and timely information.
There is, however, one thing that sucks with this deal - you need to purchase at least one of the other deals being currently offered on the site. So far, the one from Chicken Charlie seems OK considering one can use the voucher for up to 4 visits. Good thing they have a branch in Wilson, so it's near our area. I'm considering the offer from Frazzled Cook because the vailidity period of the voucher falls on the dates where we can celebrate my mom and sister's birthday. Their birthdays are just a day away from each other, plus Frazzled Cook is just near our place also.
I found an infinity top at Fusion Alley at the Powerplant Mall in Rockwell. I got a teal one more of because it was the only other color available at that time that's not brown. The purchase came with options on how to wear it. Unfortunately, figuring out girly things isn't innate to me. So, I ran to Youtube for help.
Elan International has some videos on how to wear an infinity dress and I'm still trying to make it work hahaha
