From MNG Year-end Sale

I just want to share some of the items I got from this year's MNG sale.  

Got this to match my paisley print trouser, i wore this on my K-POP Company Christmas Party! 

Very comfi trouser... it also comes in beige and olive green.

For the tops these are what I got!

For the accessories I got this belt and a chunky toggle bracelet from Mango touch.

As you can see, NO bags for me on this sale... I have splurge for a couple of bags this my hands are tied for bag-shopping.. (*wink)

I know there are still a lot of items... but i am too busy, i just hope there are still more amazing items left when the sale goes to up to 70% off!

Christmas won't be the same

Taken last year - December 25, 2011
We often spend our Christmas and New year's day  at my grandparent's home in Pasig... With the usual reunion, get together, "kainan" and exchange gifts with the family, cousins, titos, titas, aunts and uncles...I know this year will be a lot different for all of us.  In 1996 is our first Christmas without Lolo, now this year 2012 without our Lola.  But I know they are both in heaven and will be watching over us.  

With all the festivities of this season... behind every smile, laughter... deep in my heart i still grieve for your passing... but I know i have to accept it and move on...

Lolo Guiling and Lola Luming ... Merry Christmas! I miss and LOVE you both po!♥♥♥

Mango Year-end sale!

This is what I am waiting for: Mango Year-end sale! Yipee!  I have been a Mango addict since they opened their store in Edsa Shangrila Mall.  I even gained a couple of friends there... (even if they were no longer connected with Mango we still get in touch).

I love Mango's style:  it really suits my taste.

I could not wait to visit the store after work today!  Good thing i have my RCBC Mango card, today is still exclusive for RCBC cardholders.

 Hello Kitty items are really worth a fortune... They don't come cheap, we need to save money to be able to get one.  Since I am really into fashion accessories here are some my cherished HK luxe items.  Some of these are gift from friends, others i bought online especially the Tarina Tarantino Pink head collection.   When I first learned about Tarina Tarantino's Hello Kitty Pink head collection, I immediately visited her website: (Tarina Tarantino) and loved all of her collection (price ranges from $55.00 and up).    Here are some of my Tarina Tarantino Pink Head Collection. ♥

Organize your accessories

I am super OC when it comes to organizing and arranging my things.  I want all of them in a proper place, nicely, neatly stored.  Sometimes i do it by color, kind or brand... but that really depends.

Since I love fashion jewelries or accessories... i really have tons of them at home... to make them always looking like new, and to be able to locate them right away when i need to use them... I really make it a point to store them properly.  I usually put away and keep those which are not in season. 

Stack-able acrylic containers for my bracelets, chain necklaces or anything that would fit in it.  I usually stack together bracelets by kind or brand.  For the necklaces I do it by color: if it's gold or silver finish.

Bangles/cuff bracelets goes to this small plastic crate its also stack-able.   I put them inside organza pouches or zip lock bags so they will be protected from dust.  I have a plastic chopsticks container I also use it for storing my other bangles and cuffs, pasta jars or paper towel holder is also a great alternative in stacking your bangles and cuff bracelets.

I'm not so fetish on earrings... often times i get irritations on my ears when i use them (not real gold earrings), so as much as possible i really refrain from using them.  For the few pairs of earrings I have, my friend gave me this Hello Kitty earrings organizer i just hang them there, or if the earrings comes with the box I just leave it there as is.

For my bead necklaces i hang them in this small black polka dots mannequin organizer with rotatable hooks. 

Rings my LOVE! Aside from bracelets...i really love rings... I bought this black suede ring organizer... I enjoy arranging this from time to time! ♥

They say they aren't real... yes, but some of them costs a fortune also... that is why we should take care of them, and make them looking like new always.

Here are some ideas for organizing your jewelry be it real or just an accessory: I often search and browse online to find new and exciting organizing tips, most of the time i pin it on my pinterest account.

1. Vanity mirror jewelry organizer: (I am meaning to get this one!) It's on sale now on Groupon at P4,699.00 (Original value P7,000.00) comes in white, dark walnut, cherry wood, black or pink.

2. Frame jewelry organizer: Use this for organizing your earrings and necklaces - either by putting hooks, chicken wire, strings across, or you can even put a cork board and use pins to hang them.  It will also be a nice decor for your wall.

3. Wine bottles bracelets organizer: Just stack your bracelets, bangles or cuffs on your empty wine bottles.  Looks really good right?!

4. T-bar jewelry display organizer: Synthetic leather T-bar jewelry display organizer, we often see this on jewelry shops (also available in suede material).  You can use this for bracelets, bangles and even for your watches. I have one like this at home.
5. Small porcelain bowls and saucers: Align different designs of small porcelain bowls or saucers in your drawer to keep or organize your rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, brooches and other small accessories.  You can also use melawares there are a lot of nice designs you can choose from  and you can find at the houseware section of any department store.
6. Ice cube tray: Use this for your small accessories: bracelets, rings, earrings and brooches. Stack them inside your drawer for a multilayer alternative jewelry organizer. (Aside from accessories you can also use this for buttons, pins, threads and etc. that can fit its compartment)  You can also find ice cube trays with cover.

For more storage finds: You can visit the following shops:
  •  Howards Storage World-Philippines their store is at the 6th Level of Shangrila Plaza Mall other stores are at Robinsons Place Manila and Greenbelt 5;
  •  Japan Home / Daiso - For low-priced storage containers usually costs between P66.00 to P88.00 per piece - stores are found in various malls here in Metro manila;
  • Saizen - same as Japan Home or Daiso - shops are located in Robinsons Malls.

Happy Organizing!♥

Hello Kitty Christmas at The North♥

I feel I am 8 years old again! At last I was able to visit the Hello Kitty Village at The Block-SM North Edsa.  I was meaning to see the exhibit... And when I got there it was really fulfilling. ;)  Seeing the little houses with decors and cute Hello Kitty items... I love it!♥  (Sorry for the blurred photos... i forgot to bring my camera... i just used my phone's cam to take the photos)

The exhibit opened last November 10 and will run until January 6, 2013. There are also other Hello Kitty activities there like Meet & Greet, HK Luxe Collection exhibit and others... So if you're an avid fan, collector of Hello Kitty... this is a must see exhibit!

Hello Kitty Toiletries♥

While shopping for toiletries the other day at Watsons, i passed by the racks ... full of Hello Kitty toiletries: such as Bath and shower gel, lip gloss, hand lotion and etc. which are really so cute!  I tried smelling the bath and shower gel - it's raspberry scent!♥  Of course I bought one and i also got the hand lotion! ;)

Hello Kitty Scribbles Bath & Shower gel
Hello Kitty Flower Collection Hand lotion with a small HK charm

Hello Kitty is everywhere this season... After the Forever 21 launch of the Hello Kitty Forever Collection, now Watsons is carrying its own HK Collection.  The toiletries are made in China and manufactured by The Beauty Care Corporation.  They carry wide range of Hello Kitty products, I was really amazed on the things that I saw on their Facebook account: Hello Kitty - Perfumes:Toiletries: Cosmetics.  I have learned that they don't only manufacture shower and bath gels they also have perfumes, cosmetics and other HBA products.  The Hello Kitty Flower and Scribbles Collection are the ones available at Watsons.  I hope Watsons will also bring their 2013 Hello Kitty Collection of Beauty Care Company here because they are really so cute!
