Christmas List

Written on October 29th, 2012 by sassymomno shouts

The most wonderful time of the years is almost here and my Christmas list is not yet in full swing. I can do this!

My god-children first and then my kids– who happens to have their own Christmas wish list from everyone. They are teenager now, and it’s not easy to please teenagers nowadays. Their gift choices are quite expensive and Santa needs to work doubly hard this Season. Good thing I have very generous siblings who can afford to give them the luxury of an expensive gift.

As for me, simple gifts are appreciated. It’s the though that counts. But if someone would like to give me a michael kors chronograph watch– that would be perfect.

Back to wearing heals

Written on August 3rd, 2012 by sassymomno shouts

Now that I am back to working, I am also back to wearing heels, which is strains my knees after a long period of time –that’s because of my knee injury. Although, I’d love to wear flats, but heels is a must in our office.

Now, I need to choose the perfect height and the kid of heels to wear… and Wedges are the most comfortable of them all. I can stand all day with my wedges. That’s I just choose and shop for  fashionable wedges nowadays.

The other day, I was manning the mall and I saw an old man roaming around the mall with a knee scooter — probably from the knee scooters at andrew street – and I kept picturing myself doing that when I grow old. I had to stop the thought. I don’t want and refuse to grow old with a scooter in tow. I just pray that I’ll grow old without having to depend much on anything or anyone.

Bazaar Business

Written on November 3rd, 2011 by sassymomno shouts

Yes, I have ventured into another business, the bazaar business! Together with my sis-in-law, we decided to take the risk knowing that everybody will be rushing to buy stuff for Christmas gift-giving. This is the business I was talking about in my other blog.  I couldn’t hush up because of the excitement and finally we are operational. So far, so good! We are expecting sales to peak up some more come December.

As I observe the saleable items, I am amazed. I refuse to think that I am not a trendsetter, it’s just that I have my own fashion statement. But I guess as entrepreneurs, we need to adjust to what the market dictates and not be stubborn about what we thing will sell — that is the first lesson we have learned.

Going around, I am surprised to see items that sell like the trend now are “Angry Birds”, anything about it. I have also funny shirts that spoof brands, couple shirts, and of course, accessories. However, people who have been in the bazaar business tells me that come December, everything sells. Since people love to give during Christmas.

I am praying that this venture will prosper and that even if it’s not Christmas, we will still find the right location to sell our goods.

Skin Station introduces the next generation Laser Hair Removal

Written on May 18th, 2011 by sassymomone shout

Skin StationLadies, like me, worry a lot about unwanted hair especially when you need to wear those sleeveless tops or those sexy two-piece bikini. Isn’t it great if you do not have to worry about those unwanted hair?

Good thing being hair-free is no longer impossible. No more plucking, waxing and shaving and now with Soprano® Diode Super Hair Removal (SHR), it is virtually pain-free. Yup, pain-free! I tried the procedure and have compared it with the IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology — the treatment I used. With IPL, each pulse will have quite an uncomfortable pain resembling to a rubber band snapping on your skin which will only last for a second and is very tolerable, however, with Soprano® SHR which uses rapid pulsing diode with an in-motion treatment technology. In addition, it has a DualChill tip that covers larger areas of the skin with a sweeping motion that guarantees larger skin coverage and faster procedure with long-term results.

Soprano® Diode Super Hair Removal (SHR) is the most advanced technology in the US and SkinStation has brought the technology in the Philippines. So we can now enjoy a pain-free way to have a smooth, hair-free skin. Each session lasts for 10-30 minutes and is suitable for all skin and hair types. What’s great about this is that SkinStation offers this treatment at a very affordable price.

Soprano® Diode Super Hair Removal is available at SkinStation, Timog Avenue, Quezon City

Summer Fashion

Written on March 29th, 2011 by sassymomno shouts

Beach BodI was dressing up for a lunch date with my hubby’s family and as I was choosing my clothes, I can feel the temperature rising. The heat is on! Summer is definitely here. I decided to wear the most comfortable clothing I have.

In a tropical country like the Philippines, the heat dictates what you wear but it should not stop from being chic and fabulous all summer. Now that summer is here, it’s time to flaunt to those summer dresses which will make you looking fab and comfy while strolling under the sun.

In the Phils., urban clothes should always be comfortable. Humidity is a common foe so it is a must to wear clothing that will let your skin breathe.

Time to gear up for the summer! I promise to have a good tan this summer.

Men shopping for her?

Written on November 11th, 2010 by sassymomno shouts

My husband shopping for me? Oh, that would spell disaster!

In the few occasions, my husband attempted to buy me something, only two things happened: I accepted it so he won’t get hurt and give it to someone or I will just directly tell him to give it to someone. Either way, it’s a complete waste of money.

“Such a meanie!”, that what my son would say but hubby shopping for me will never work. I know I should appreciate the gesture (and I do!) but it’s hard to wear something you do not like.

My number one rule for my husband, you can window shop all you want but never buy without me. Now, if you want to surprise me, ask my mom or my sister — they know my taste. LOL!

Now, to avoid disappointments, you can either sort to cash or a gift certificate. That’s better!

Although I haven’t tested my husband’s taste when buying a jewelry since I buy my own. I believe a jewelry should not be as difficult as choosing a bag or a pair of shoes. I can settle for even the simplest jewelry to Cubic Zirconia or the grandest one.

I love Vintage Tees!

Yes, I am a T-Shirt person.

A T-Shirt and cropped pants would be my everyday look. Especially with the weather here, I find t-shirts super comfy! Cropped pants because I find jeans to thick, it does not help when the weather is hot.  I am not more for updated in fashion, I’d rather go for comfort.

T-shirts, as long as it is cotton would be good enough for me. Why? Because I sweat a lot so cotton would be the cool-est option. As to the design? Hmmmmm, plain will do but I adore vintage t shirts. I just find the designs unique and since you’re just wearing a t-shirt, might as well make a statement.

Even my daughter loves vintage tees! When we shop we make sure we have different designs, she does not like it when we have the same things. I think it’s a teenage thing! they need to create their own persona so I let her be.
