my fav. xmas present

(apologies for the half pic)

i love my olive oil set from dr. alonzo.
i got this from a raffle @ the xmas party @ work. lady luck was on my side, i got the biggest price.
can't wait to use it. now where can i find some quality but moderately priced balsamic vinagrette?
(next i want a cheese board)

-memories not materials-

that's my new year's reso or motto this coming year.
i want to make them not buy them.
but let's keep on mind that some memories require some cash.

beyong wishful thinking

knowing that its impossible that i get these things for xmas or ever, id still like to share some of the things i dream of. lol. surprisingly almost all are electronics.

i dont have this print yet and i like how it looked when i tried it on. not old womanish at all.

western digital external hard drive. im out of memory, i need a place for thousands of my pics.

canon rebel xsi. i really want and slr/eos camera but i just cant get myself to splurge on this.

brother sewing machine. i pay so much for alterations, id like to learn how to do some basic things.

macbook pro. my mac needs to be replaced, asap.

ysl muse. you have to see it in person, its gorgeous.

some other things i want are:
-burberry scarf large nova check
-chanel flap bag in black
-an ostrich purse. even more imposibble considering the price of a real ostrich purse and whatever high brand it is.
(i'll take ostrich-embossed, i dont mind)

in a perfect xmas, these would all be under the tree with my name on it.

i love gossip girl. and last night was one of the best episodes! i loved the story! i cant stop raving about it.
a breakout performance i thought was by ed westwick aka chuck bass. his performance was awesome, he kind of has that dark side, he really has potential, i was very impressed. the entire episode was exciting but i was in awe with mr. chuck. can't wait for more...

oh how i'd love to be in a chace-ed sandwhich!!!!

i want!!! now!

everything but scotch tape

1. i feel so festive this year. i finished my xmas shopping last week. thank god. i was super excited this year to be able to afford decent gifts so i finished super early. im itching to wrap my gifts but we have no TAPE!

2. its my night off tonight and i really want to do something but also relax @ the same time, i work again tomorrow night so one night is definitely not enough to recuperate after a week's worth of work. i like productivity but sometimes i like sleeping in better. a lot better.

3. paquiao won. he's freaken awesome. he's really making filipino's proud. his generosity is such a blessing to people in need and that's why he deserves the success, victory and the $$$.
(nevertheless, de la hoya is still a hottie)

4. all this watching of filipino soaps and shows is making me miss the philippines. i know i just started my career but all this repetitive, tedious work has got me thinking how much i want to retire early and live it up in the philippines. hope charley's up for it. lol. seriously, america aint got nuthin on p.i. + i miss my dad and family. life just seem sooo uneventful lately.

5. i love xmas because it reminds me of my mom. she loved xmas, every morning she used to put on xmas carols on her old school record player. she use to get us sucky gifts sometimes. it was funny. it was her favorite holiday so every time xmas rolls around im reminded of her and it reminds me that this is going to be the 5th xmas without her. i love xmas but i hate xmas.

new year's resolution numero uno

be more of a homemaker.
-cook more
-learn how to sew (a sewing machine is no. 1 on my xmas wishlist)
-throw dinner parties instead of asking everyone to eat out
-and most definitely clean more!!!

i want to be just like semi-homemade cooking with sandra lee because there's no way im going to make everything from scratch + her table settings are beautiful.

i must confess, i have had ebay for a while now but have never actually had the guts to bid & spend so much, i always backed down. many of you know that for many years, i have been searching for some navy leather vintage boots ( i love vintage) and have been outbid on ebay. (theres no other place to get them other than vintage stores) so last month, i finally had the courage and the money to bid on it on ebay. navy leather boots are such a rare find. so im very happy that my search is over. i also found some really awesome vintage black woven boots that are super nice, i got them in the mail last week. if all goes well with the transactions, ebay just found themselves another power buyer.

love her

there's a lot of celebrities who's style i love but right now im really liking vanessa hudgens style. she's featured in people style watch this month and i also love her because she dresses her age, and for someone young she dresses really cute. i have not watched a single high school musical or anything, i just think she's cute and has great style and hair. its awesome that she's pinay as well.

i love thrift/vintage shopping.
esp. when i have something in mind and i find it.
i have been looking for a flannel plaid shirt for awhile now, i was going to spend 50 bucks at urban outfitters. good thing, i was bored and decided to make a quick trip to the thrift shop. the shirt was $1.49 and the clutch/bag was $1.99. for a total of $3.98! i cant wait to wear this shirt w/ skinny's and boots!!
im satisfied. :)

sexy as hell

enough said.

Merci beaucoup Mr. Rajo Laurel...

for giving me another reason to go to the city...

Yves Saint Laurent Exhibition

November 1, 2008 — April 5, 2009

since Yves Henri Donat Mathieu-Saint-Laurent died earlier this year, there's a tribute to him, a forty year retrospective at the de young museum in sf. i was reading filipino designer rajo laurel's blog and discovered this exhibit. so im totally juiced. i've been to the de young before and have seen some of his work including other designers like vivienne westwood and house of dior but there were very few pieces. I love YSL everything. ok so i dont own anything ysl but i have been forever eyeing their handbags and love their haute couture gowns. this calls for a definite visit to the city. care to join me?

boot season

i love boots, i think they're the perfect investment. however, i also practice the act of being practical, reasonable and realistic. one of these boots are $349 while the other is $29. can you tell which one is which? NO. If you look closely? MAYBE.
one is slightly cuter than the other and there are some differences of course.
one is miss sixty and the other is some random brand, but who cares, ill buy the $30 one over the miss sixty's any day...

b: unable to function properly

shopbop buyer what were you thinking?!?! im sorry but this is hideous!
im not going to lie, i had a skirt like this sometime around 7th/8th grade, but this is one of those things you dont want to see come back. and what's sad is that its true religion!

my dream closet

isnt it amazing?
i was cleaning my room today and hanging clothes back in my closet and thought about how my dream closet would look like.
i have two closets but i love to hang everything so theres hardly any room. i remember seeing her closet in an episode of cribs. its soooo roomy, i know i would spend hours in it. i absolutely adore her closet, so spacious, so white and gold, the chandelier, the chairs, the different compartments, its like a boutique. i love it, dont you?

dont judge a jacket by its picture

i was told that the rack just received new shipment this weekend, so i decided to check it out and i found this amazing brown leather jacket. not only was it half the price, i love the hood and the genuine leather is supppper soft, and its MICHAEL KORS! originally, $485, i got it for $229. it looks so much better in person than in this pic. i love it! a great investment i couldnt pass up.

contrary to popular peeves, i like the rain. yes, gone are the days of playing outside in the rain & jumping on puddles, but i really dont mind the occasional precipitation. esp, when i can stay home cuddled in my fleece robe & sip on hot tea & watch my fav. movie. plus, castro valley's water supply is short, and you all know id be the first to die in a drout. :P
