My Christmas Presents


I received plenty of presents from my husband, family and friends last week. I am very grateful for all the material things I got for Christmas but the number one thing I am thankful for is the gift of having a loving family. I will never replace my family with any form of material things; I truly loved each one of them dearly. On Christmas Eve, I was video chatting with my family in the Philippines for over four hours. I was able to witness my family doing their exchange gift with one another and I wish I could be there in person with them. 

Well, I did enjoy our Christmas Day with my dearest husband and some family members and I am so thankful for all the blessings that came in my life. I am looking forward to welcome the New Year with positivism and hopefully it will be a better year for my husband and I.

Mia Mariu Mineral Cosmetic Review




I have been wearing make-up for over six years now and I love every moment of it. I did not wear make-up until I left home and got married but I surely enjoy wearing them. My mother always told all of her children that simplicity is beauty but I told her that enhancing your natural beauty by wearing make-up is even more rewarding. 


Well, I am fortunate to receive some samples from Mia Mariu Cosmetics online to try on. I receive three items from Mia Mariu Cosmetics online such as their Volumizing and Lengthening Mascara in (Black), Hydrating Stick Gloss Beso and Mineral Eye Shadow Duo Noche de Amor. I am so excited when I try the products for the first time plus I receive a lot of compliments from my colleagues, friends and family here and abroad. 

I am in love with Mia Mariu Cosmetics product because the result was amazing plus I also found out that they are made of natural ingredient which is what I’m looking for in a beauty product. So if you want to learn more about Mia Mariu Cosmetics product then I suggest you like them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter.

I grew up wearing dresses especially when I attended church services with my family back in my home country. I continue to wear dresses to this day. I love to wear dresses because it makes me feel more feminine and beautiful inside and out.  Well, I was very fortunate to receive a beautiful dress from Holy Clothing online which I wore recently when my husband and I attended the anniversary of my in-laws. I was smiling the entire time while attending the family gathering because I received a lot of compliments from friends and family members about my dress. They started asking about where I purchased the dress because of how beautiful the dresses were made. Of course, I told them where I got it from and informed them that all of the dresses from Holy Clothing are handmade and each dress is uniquely design.

New Year Countdown

Christmas season has always been one of my favorite occasions during the holidays. Yesterday, my husband and I had a blast. We had our lunch together with his immediate family and some of his sisters were there. After receiving our gifts we headed back to our apartment and I wrapped twenty-five pieces of egg roll which we brought during our visit with his step dad later that evening. We were so surprised that Ango made a lot of food for Tony and I. He made some roasted chicken, salad, Rajas con papas, Sopa with tomato sauce and cheese and more. The food was so delicious and we are so happy to be there. Dear husband and I ended up staying at his Step Dad's house for a couple of hours before we decided to come home and take a little nap.

We are so thankful for knowing such wonderful people in our lives and thankful for all the gifts that we received. I would like to wish you all a prosperous New Year ahead!

Dr. Lucy's Review



Christmas is about sharing, so one of the many things I shared with my husband’s family is the gift of delicious cookies from Dr. Lucy’s cookie collections. I am delighted to have tried some of Dr. Lucy’s cookies such as the Snack ‘n Go Packs which include Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Cookie and Maple Bliss. My husband and his family also tasted another delectable cookie called Chocolate Merry Mint which is perfect for the holidays. 

For those of you who haven’t tried Dr. Lucy’s cookies and goodies let me tell you a little about this company. Dr. Lucy developed this recipe after learning that her kid had severe food allergies. She created this recipe for her child which turned out to be a huge hit for anyone out there who also has food allergies like her child. For instance, Dr. Lucy’s cookies are FREE of gluten, the cookies and other pastries are made without milk or eggs and they also do not contain peanuts or tree nuts. So what are you waiting for? Check out Dr. Lucy’s today and also make sure to like them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter.

What's in the Box?



I've received plenty of packages in the mail this week including a gift from a good friend online who became a great confidant ever since we started exchanging conversations. We became friends after I've purchased a few of her products online. She is a class a seller and I like all of the products I've purchased from her. I was very surprised when I found out that she is sending gifts to all her buyer whom she call her (suki) and that includes me. Take a look at the snap shot of the gift below. FYI, I have not opened the gift yet because I plan to do that on Christmas Eve!
