The Collab that we will all LOVE: Coach x Peanuts♥

Hello fellas!  Who doesn't have a memory of these cartoon characters?  As I have mentioned on my previous post when McDonald's came up with Peanuts gang Happy meal.  (Actually that ended just last weekend)  I grew up reading it's comic strip at Bulletin today (now Manila Bulletin).  When I was in high school aside from Hello Kitty, I also like Snoopy (from pencils, wallets, bags and even plushies).  I remember I have this huge Snoopy poster hanging in my bedroom before.  

Coach one of the famous luxury American brand based in New York came up with this collection: Coach x Peanuts.  This Collection was first launched in the last quarter of 2014 and was brought back in June 2015, since the first batch was sold out so quickly.  

Black, tan, ivory, blue and yellow are the color palette of the second round release of the collection.  The collection features Snoopy and his best friend Woodstock accents.  From mini duffels, book cover, cosmetic case, pouch, back pack, luggage tag and etc.

I love the Coach x Peanuts - Snoopy leather doll that comes in 4 sizes and available in black and white!

And the cutie key ring was so adorbs!♥

DIY: Hello Kitty paper clips♥

Happy Monday!  It's been a while since I last shared a DIY project.  As far as I can remember it was also a Hello Kitty thingy: (Hello Kitty pin cushion). Now here is another DIY - Hello Kitty!♥

These past few days, I have been busy dressing up my planner... it's been a while that I did crafting so for 2 nights in a row I have been sleeping late for that.  While tinkering on my old crafting stuff I found an old Hello Kitty cable tie.  I bought this from Daiso Japan, and was not able to use them because the snap opens whenever I use them on my cables.  Good thing I did not throw them, I know that in time I can recycle that for something else.

Well, now from a useless cable tie... I can use them as a bookmark or paper clip.  My planner and Hello Kitty collection would love to have them. 

Here are the things you need:
  • Hello Kitty cable tie (or any character that you like)
  • Paper clips (got these gold paper clips from National Bookstore)
  • Pair of scissors
  • Glue gun
Cut the Hello Kitty head from the cable tie.  Remove the back snap, but don't throw them because you will use them to cover the clip later.  

Attach the paper clip on the Hello Kitty head by using a glue gun.

And put the snap at the back to hold the paper clip in place.

That's it!  I have a cutie Hello Kitty paper clips or bookmarks for my 2016 planner!♥

Hope you like it!(*wink!)

Happy crafting!♥

My Happy Planner 2016♥

Before January ends... I know I should make up my mind whether I will use my Starbucks planner or the light gold planner I got from Ever New.  I really wanted the rose gold : Kate Spade Wellesley zip around planner it's not available here in the Philippines and already out of stock in the US.  

Rose gold to match my phone... (hihi)  But I really wanted something shimmery...  (shining, shimmering, splendid)  an eye-catching, glam, elegant and fabulous planner-That's it!  For the past years, I only jot down things to-do or make some notes on my planner.  I never really tried adding stickers, using different colors of pens or putting washi tapes: in short I don't glam it up.  Though I love crafting, because of my busy schedule I really don't have the time to do it. 

I realized that I should've done that before... there's a lot that I missed -- The joy of creating and designing, and it's also a way of de-stressing after a long busy and toxic day at work.  I can now use the gel pens I bought (months ago) from Muji and metallic brush and calligraphy pens from National Bookstore (I also have this obsession on pens/ballpens aside from planners).  Got the planner stickers at there are ga-zillions of free downloadable stickers there.

Got giddy, starting on the first page of my happy planner... Why Happy?  Because that's one of my wishes for 2016... Happiness! It's not that I am not happy... but I wanted all the entries there to be something joyful: so that if I open it few years after... it will make me smile!♥

Meet Tchi tchi doll♥

source: Tchi Tchi official Instagram account

Have you met these lavish diva like dolls?  They are called Tchi Tchi dolls made by a fashion expert Fadia Dekmak.  Accessorizing bags is a huge hit for the past years, espcially when Fendi came up with the Furry friends like the monsters and Karlito: these dolls with definitely be a new "must have" accessory.  These cutie girl dolls are handmade and can be customized depending on the owner's liking.  Doll's hair is made from real fox fur (available in variety of colors) with Swarovski crystals and pearls to adorn the outfit.  These dolls are available in open or closed eyes with long lashes and ruby red lips. (Each doll can cost up to P30,000.00)

Honestly I came across with this doll through Ms. Heart Evangelista's Instagram and fell in love with it.  I love accessories, accessorizing and of course I love bags! (haha)

These dolls are made to order and not found on boutiques, the designer wants to have a personal touch for each doll .  To view the dolls you can visit her Instagram @tchitchiofficial or visit their website

Every fabulous woman not only knows how to accessorize herself, but also how to make her bag stand out! (Remember that your bag or purse completes your whole look)  Your bag need not be a designer brand as long as you adorn it with a perfect accessory. (*wink!)

Hello 2016!

Before I call it a night, I want to wish everyone a prosperous and a blessed year!  I wish that 2016 will be an amazing year to all of us.  

It's been a toxic two weeks...all the preparations, cooking, errands: but I love doing them for my family. I have always believe that Christmas is really for the family.  It's the time of year when we see and bond with not only our family but our other relatives also especially those who we seldom see.  (Yes, this is also the time that I miss my Lolo and Lola very badly, but I know that they are happy watching over us in heaven.)  There are times when we have misunderstandings with our family members: it's normal because we are only human, but at the end of the day, we are still a family.  We should love and support each other - That's the true essence of Christmas...  Love, Mercy and Forgiveness: we cannot achieve these if we have a heavy heart...  

I am excited for what 2016 brings...

Are you also excited?

Cheers to the new year!
