A Year of Blessings

Jose Mari Chan definitely had the right idea when he sang the Christmas song Count your Blessings (Instead of Sheep).  The year 2010, although stressful, has indeed reminded me that despite the everyday challenges, there are still a lot of things to be thankful for.  Here are just a few...

1. Months of preparation have finally led to my being wed to one of the greatest guys on earth last January 2010.  Looking back at all the headaches and fights done during the preparation was all worth it in the end.  We are happily married and plan to stay that way til forever.

2. After 4 years, I was finally able to graduate and obtain my Master's degree last September 2010.  It has been one grueling ride, but well worth seeing that diploma in my hand.

3. From September to December 2010, I spent these 4 glorious months with my Hubby, an OFW in Singapore.  We had late night movie marathons, I cooked and cleaned for him, he took me out on special dates.  It was blissful as we had always been in a long distance relationship even before.  It was nice to have a normal relationship for once.

4. Hubby and I found out we were expecting our own little bundle of joy last November 2010.  We are excited and cannot wait to welcome the Little One to our small family.

This is just the tip of the iceberg.  In life, although tragic, there is always that ray of light that makes us smile.  So cheer up!  And when you find yourself losing sleep over life's issues, count your blessings instead of sheep.  =)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
