#Gifted: Thoughtful Gifts From A Very Special Friend

Since we moved into our new home two weeks ago, I finally got the chance to open and take pictures of the gifts given to me by an exceptional and dear friend of mine, ate (pronounced as “Ah-teh” meaning “older sister, or an older female friend), Myna. She is one of my dearest friends in Louisiana. She’s not only a dear friend, but she is also a big sister figure to me. Not only beautiful inside and out. She is also thoughtful, funny, and a giver. Everybody that knows her loves her ♥♥♥. I’m so blessed to know her and had the chance to work with her. Such a good role model and has a big heart ♥, and I miss her already!

REVIEW: SHEIN Tie Neck Self Belted Raglan Sleeve Pleated Dress

This dress looks expensive, but what if I told you I got this for under fifteen bucks! Do you think I’m kidding? Of course not!

ABOUT THE MATERIAL:
The fabric is a little see-through. Just wear a slip under and it’s all good!

ABOUT THE SIZE:
I ordered the XS size, and it’s a bit too big. So if you are wearing a size medium, you might want to get the XS or the Small size.

Gianni Bini Faux Fur Jacket + Cheeky lime Ava (review)

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.

Christmas Mini Session With My Dear Friend and Her Daughter.

Hi all, I have been MIA for days on my blog. I had been a busy and exhausted mom for days. School is out for Thanksgiving break, and you (parent/parents) know what that means. My boys are like “mommy, mommy, mommy all day long.” Especially my little one, he can talk all day long for sure. The only time I have a break from them is when they are napping and when they are in bed at night, hehe. But I love them to the moon and back.


Anyway, last Saturday, I had so much fun capturing my dear friend and her daughter’s Christmas mini session. You can check this session here. The location I chose was the Dilliard’s store. It was a perfect location for this session. Dilliard’s has a wide variety of lovely Christmas decorations throughout their store. It was just perfect!

Check out my photography page and let me know what you think.

Have you ever heard of the Nygard brand? I’m wearing Nygard denim pants. When it comes to pants, I have been a Nygard’s biggest fan for 4 years now. I love every Nygard leggings and pants that I have. So worth the price! You should try this brand. I highly recommend this brand.

The photographer must pose too, lol!

Be Stylish Without Spending A Lot: Plaid Coat, Mock- Neck + Skinny Pants

Look, I don’t think you have to buy expensive items of clothing to look presentable, stylish, or fashionable. You can be wearing the most expensive outfit, but if you don’t look good in it, what’s the point of that expensive tag price? I’m not sarcastic. I’m just being realistic! Hey, I don’t look good all the time, and that’s the reality. Also, I’m so careful about what to wear because of my 10-year-old son who critics my outfit if he doesn’t like it ♥♥♥.

Yesterday was a little chilly, and wearing a thick coat wasn’t necessary at all. You know, Louisiana weather, right? It could be Winter today, then the next day it feels like mid-summer! One crazy weather, I would say.

About this plaid coat, the material is light and soft. I was wearing a size XS. The mock-top, I had to get a size Small because the XS is a little too tight. It makes me feel like an egg roll (wrapped up so tight), lol! This Elasticized Waist Skinny Pants is true to size. I got the XS, and it’s perfect!

Fall Season: Outdoor Family Pictures

Hello everyone! How’s your weekend? For the past few days, we had lots of rain. So far, today we had light rain showers all day long, thank God! It’s just too nasty outside to do any outdoor activities. Also, I decided to stay home today instead of going to work. I am a little under the weather since I woke up this morning. You know, when you feel achy, you really don’t wanna do anything except stay on bed or on your couch all day with a cup of hot tea or hot chocolate. My whole day was definitely like that today. I hope these achy muscles will be better tomorrow.

Anyway, what is your favorite season of the year? Mine is the Fall season. I love the Fall colors around, and also the colder weather. Plus, when the sun is out, it’s not too hot. For me, it’s perfect! Last two weeks ago, we had our Fall season family pictures. I worked on those pictures last night. When you have little boys that won’t stay still for a photo and a dog that wants all the attention for herself, I think our family picture came out really good.

Small and Cute: Ardel Wooden Top Handle Faux Leather Bag

When I was in my teenage years until in my late twenties (20’s), I always loved carrying bigger bags and bigger purses. My friends and other family members would comment about it by saying, “You’re bag/purse is bigger than you, girl.” Those comments did not bother me at all. And now that I’m in my thirties (30’s), I don’t carry bigger purses anymore. As much as I love it, my shoulder says something else. You know, we call it “age,” hehe.

Lately, I’m into small purses (one reason to avoid shoulder pain talk). One of the newest cute purse in my collection is the Ardel Wooden Top Handle Faux Leather Bag by Sole Society. I love the quality of this baby and how lightweight it is. The first thing that caught my attention was the wooden handles. Those handles simply add details to the whole look of this cute purse. Plus, it was on sale when I got it. And yes, I will definitely get another color of this style when it is back in stock. 

Details of this purse:

SIZE INFO

  • 8″W x 7 ½”H x 3 ½”D. (Interior capacity: small.)
  • 2 ½” strap drop; 21″ – 24 ½” convertible strap drop.

  • Top carry handles; optional, adjustable crossbody strap
  • Interior wall pocket

Lifestyle: Autumn Breeze And A Cup Of Coffee Kind Of Morning

Last night when I got home from work, I was physically worn out. I told Sean, I’m going to be sleeping today and do nothing. Thankfully, he doesn’t have any problem with that. He is so supportive of me in everything. So yes, I woke up late this morning, and he even told me to go back to sleep if I wanted to. He is amazing! However, I need my morning coffee rather than going back to bed, lol.

It was a hectic day at work yesterday. Seven hours of work seemed like forever. I was exhausted! I’m so grateful that I’m off this whole weekend. At least, I can relax and recover fast (hopefully) from being so physically tired.

By the way, let’s talk about FALL Season. Finally, Autumn is here. Gosh, you have no idea how excited I am. Just to let you know, this is my favorite season of the year. I don’t like the Winter season because I hate cold. I don’t like the Spring season because of allergies. Summer is okay, but I’m not a big fan of it because it’s too hot! How about you? What is your favorite season of the year, and why?

Once Upon A Child Haul #1

Have you ever heard of a kids clothing store called Once Upon A Child? We found out about this store not too long ago, and luckily it’s only 15 minutes drive from our place. Personally, I love the place. We found great stuff for the boys for the Winter season. It doesn’t get too cold here in Louisiana, so shopping for long sleeve shirts ahead of time is a great idea.

What’s In The Store?

Not only do they sell clothing for children, but they also buy gently used children’s clothing, shoes, toys, and baby gear! Be sure to check them out. I’m sure you’re going to love it!

By the way, the shirts that my boys are wearing below were on clearance and was a dollar each ($1.00) only!

Thank you for stopping by!
