That's what my Home design personality according to HomeGoods.  I took the style quiz on their site and after choosing 5 images, the result was: YOU ARE SOCIALITE! 

Here's result of the quiz:

Who is Socialite?

"The Socialite knows two things very well: luxury designer deals when she sees them and how to have fun! She likes to see and be seen. She's into high fashion, and yes, she is absolutely in the "in" crowd. She has an energetic fervor to her decorating, and she works hard to fill her home with the very best things."  

How to style Socialite?

First step:
Brilliant textures and layers, pops of rich colors like deep plums and magentas, and high-end, lavish touches at every turn.

Designer trick:
Mix in animal print ottomans for a playful way to store your favorites.

Fresh idea:
Use a paper towel holder to hold—and display!—your favorite bangles.

Actually  I  am really a lover of fashion... and that is really my design style. The quiz results is very me! And the fresh start idea that's stated on the quiz about using the paper towel holder to display my bangles .. I have already done that.  (hehe)... Love my tons of accessories properly organized.. (quite OC on that).

Sleeping St.Joseph♥

According to Pope Francis on his Meeting with the families in MOA: If you have a problem, a difficulty write a note a place underneath St. Joseph so he can dream about it.  In other words: 'pray for this problem'.

Finally I have my own Sleeping St. Joseph,  very timely because it's his feast day on the Thursday, March 19. :)

Novena Prayer to St. Joseph

Glorious St.Joseph, faithful follower of Jesus Christ, to you I raise my heart and hands to implore your powerful intercession. Obtain for me from the gentle heart of Jesus all the help and graces necessary for my spiritual and temporal welfare, particularly the grace of a happy death and the favour I now implore.. O guardian of the word incarnate, I feel animated with confidence that your prayers in my behalf will be graciously heard before the throne of God. O glorious St.Joseph, through the love you bear for Jesus Christ and the glory of His name...Amen

GF's Lakwatsa at CPK!♥

It's been a while since I went out with my high school friends.  Actually I have 2 groups of HS friends: 1 is my original "barkada" the SqRt gang and 2 the Kindness group.  The Kindness group was formed only last 2008 when our school celebrated it's 100 years. Why Kindness? Because that's our section in second year.

I'll be writing about my dining experience at California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) with my Kindness group GF's.  Before I used to go to either Edsa Shangrila or Makati... now they have a branch in Eastwood City.  I love CPK!  It was my cousin from Singapore who introduced me to that resto, he invited us for a late snack back then.  For somebody who loves pasta and pizza... it's really a hit!

My all-time CPK favorites: still getting my 5 stars score.

Fettuccine Garlic Pasta + Chicken : is my ultimate all time CPK fave!♥♥♥♥♥

Their to die for Spinach Artichoke dip: ♥♥♥♥♥ 
and my friends loved it too!

We also ordered their Thai crunch Salad and Pizza

For a change, we opted for Thai crunch salad: mixture of veggies, nuts and crispy noodles with peanut dressing.  (instead of having the usual caesar salad) ♥♥♥♥♥

Good food x Good friends will always be a perfect bonding moment.  Imagine we stayed at the resto for more than 5 hours. We met up at 4pm and stayed there until 9:45pm... Too much to talk about, so little time...

Overall verdict:
  • Food : 5 stars
  • Ambiance: 4 stars (i still love their old concept: bistro type: dim lighted resto)

Kris' : Red & Green bags♥

I got so overwhelmed when somebody asked me about the brand of the two other bags that Ms. Kris Aquino shared on her blog.  Actually, I just commented on her Instagram about her Andy Hindmarch's smiley bag and then one of her followers then asked me, what's the brand of her green and red bags.  Yes, I am a certified bag lover.  I may not be able to buy those luxury bags but I really love reading and updating myself about them.  

So for her green and red bags: they are Hermes Victoria or Hermes Victoria II.  It was from Spring/Summer 2007 collection of Hermes. Made from clemence leather with canvas lining.  It is available in two sizes: 35cm and 40cm.

Are you a bagaholic also like me?

The Smiley bag♥

Did this bag made you smile also?  Super cute bag featured by Ms. Kris Aquino on her website/blog (http://www.withlovekrisaquino.com/).  What brand of bag is this?  Well, it's Andy Hindmarch, she is an English fashion accessories designer.  The designer behind the "I'm not a plastic bag" tote.  

It's a "feel good" bag! It really brighten up my day when Ms. Kris posted this on her Instagram account and blog.  Like her I like bags also.  (not really on shoes...) Bags are so personal: you feel connected to them because it's our everyday companion.♥

Chanel costume jewelries S/S 2015♥

Photo credit: Chanel.com

Hey fabulous!  Hope this excites you as much as I do! French fashion house Chanel has released (actually they have already presented these on PFW: last quarter of 2014) their Spring / Summer 2015 costume jewelry collection.  What I love about Chanel is that it's classic and elegant.  If you can recall last year (I do this every season) I also wrote something about their Fall / Winter 2014-15 Collection.

The following dominated the entire S/S 2015 collection of Chanel: metal, tweed, precious stones and of course pearls embellished with their brand signatures, iconic logos.  On their previous collections they have introduced jumbo pearls, grocery inspired accessories, crescent moon: this season it's more of "Slogan" or "Statement" embellished beauties.

Here's a rundown of my choices from their Spring/Summer Collection 2015.

Metal + pearls in Matte gold: Metal cuff and necklace embellished with Chanel signature and glass pearls.  I love the cuff, but for me the necklace is too exaggerated (too over the top, but still gorg!).

Photo credit: Chanel.com
Metal bangles and cuff interfaced with calfskin.  I adore these babies! These would really look good if you pile 'em together (the more the merrier.. *wink!) Really perfect for the season! Love the colors!♥

"Slogan" bangles and cuff: Metal cuff and bangle embellished with Chanel signature is ♥♥♥.  No explanations needed here...arm candies that speak for themselves...

Photo credit: Chanel.com
Pearls x Tweed: Karl Lagerfield, their creative directed used a lot  of  Tweed and was also very dominant at their S/S 2015 couture collection.

Resin and metal combination cuffs, with House of Chanel address (Rue Cambon)  and location map design.

Chanel's signature resin cuff embellishment with twisted pearls cc logo this time.  Their signature design cuff, you can find this on their collection every season embellished with different designs of Chanel's iconic logo.

Here are the other jewels from their collection (which did not fall on my top choices), But I decided to share it also...
