We are moving out of state soon. Yes, I have mixed emotions. I am so excited that Sean and I are finally settling down and be in our dream home with the boys. I am also sad to leave my really-really good friends here in Louisiana, who are my family and so dear to me. I’m so thankful to have found beautiful people who believe in me and the best in me. I will cherish them and their friendships as long as I live.
A brand new start in a new place is making me feel quite nervous; however, it is the right time to start a new beginning. I am so happy to start this new journey with Sean and the boys.♥♥♥
I was a little disappointed when I got this palette. It’s too tiny! I thought it would be a bigger palette for the price. However, I love the packaging, though. Well, the advantage of this small palette is that I can take it with me inside my purse anywhere. It’s my first time using a Smashbox palette, and the shades are stunning. The lighter shades are not as pigmented as I thought they would be. However, you can build it up. The darker shades are my favorites. This palette had eight (8) vivid eyeshadows.
ABOUT THE TEXTURE: The texture is smooth and very easy to blend.
To those parent/parents like myself, we do everything we can so our children at least feel like everything are okay. We do everything we can to protect them, and to assure them to not be worry thinking about what’s going to happen tomorrow. And with schools, temporarily closed, we do everything to help our children continue learning from home.
Many times, I feel like I’m going to pull my hair off. Seriously, I’m sure it’s not just me who feels like doing it from time to time. I’m sure you are too! For now, this is our new normal. We must learn to accept all these new challenges as part of God’s way of molding us into something He wants us to be. Only God knows His purpose for allowing this to happen all over the world. We don’t know what His plan is. Whatever His plan is, we know we can trust Him.
I have two boys who don’t get along with each other most of the day. They don’t agree with everything! We -(parents) know that our kids can drive us nuts sometimes. These past weeks haven’t been easy for us all. For me, my patience is running thin. When I ‘m starting to feel it, I go to the bathroom, take a deep breath, and pray. I know, God is listening to all our cries. He is not deaf, and he will not turn his back on us. He is our ultimate healer, and He will bring healing not only this land but to all who called upon His name.

Had a great time with two of my friends. These ladies here are not only beautiful inside and out, but also fun to hangout with. Big thanks to my dear friend, Leah, for the food, fruits, and drink she prepared for Bliss and I. We had a blast!
A big thanks to my friend, Sally, for this gorgeous eyeshadow palette from Lancome. I got this on my birthday, and I finally got the chance to play with it. I love how pigmented these shades are, and the colors are P.R.E.T.T.Y! Not only the shade colors are pretty but the palette case and packaging as well. This palette contains 12 metallic and matte shades. Also, the heart-shaped case is charming!
I love, love, love this Gianni Bini faux fur jacket. I got this as a birthday gift from my friend, Helen, on my birthday a couple of weeks ago. This jacket is by far the most comfortable winter jacket I have ever worn. When I was doing this shoot (see pictures below), it was so windy and cold. At first, I did not even think that I would be able to stay outside a little longer, checking out new views to shoot, and also do my self-photo shoot. Thankfully, wearing this jacket helps me stay warm the whole time I was out. Also, since we are moving to Branson soon, this jacket will be my warmer for the next winter ♥♥♥.
Now, about this cute Cheeky Lime Ava bag/camera bag. It’s on sale right now. It used to be $85.00. However, right now it’s on sale for $29.99 ♥. Now, that’s a steal! Inside the bag, I can fit two camera lenses and the camera body, of course. I’m pleased with this purchase.

Yesterday’s weather was perfect! However, today’s climate here in Monroe and West Monroe is the total opposite of yesterday. It has been raining here since last night and the entire day today. Like I’ve always said, Oh my Louisiana weather! Today, it could be winter, and then the next day will be like Summertime. This sudden weather change makes a lot of people sick, you know?
Whenever the weather is like this, I honestly don’t want to go out at all. I don’t particularly like driving in the rain, and then deal with road traffic. It’s like I have a choice, well, too bad because I/we all have to deal with it sometimes. It’s part of our daily living. How about where you live? How’s the weather in your city?
A few days ago, my friend, Helen, called me and invited me for breakfast to this Latin restaurant just a few miles from where we both live. I always passed this place whenever I am driving around the area. However, I didn’t get the chance to stop by and try their food until this day.
It looks so small outside, but this restaurant has pretty good space inside. The place has a relaxing atmosphere, and it’s pretty clean too! The only downside is the parking area. The parking area is too small. You have to either park to the next building’s parking lot, or to the other side, which is a gas station.
I had a great time eating breakfast with my friends, Hele and Mishelle. They told me that the coffee is excellent. So I did have a coffee, and yes, it was good! I may have found a place to get a good coffee, after all. I also had an omelet for breakfast, and it goes with purple rice with beans in it. It’s called Morocco rice. It was pretty good. It reminded me of the purple rice back home (Philippines), we called it “Tapul,” meaning “Purple” in our region.
Later on that very same day, I told Sean about the place when he came home from work, and we decided to dine there for dinner. We had a good experience there. The food was excellent, and their menu prices are very reasonable. This place is worth checking out if you live in the West Monroe area and haven’t been to this place, you need to check this place out.
