Congratulations and best wishes

The family was invited at the wedding of my niece on January 07, 2015. This is one of the biggest events in our clan this year. And hope for more events to come. Anyways, they have been in the relationship for nine long years. They also build a strong foundation of their loves. Being together for nine years is not easy. Though they admit they quarreled, fought, but they reconcile it right away. Their love for each other is strong enough to make them overcome all the trials, struggles and temptation. And after that long nine years, they have decided to finally tie the knot.

Seeing their wedding updates on Facebook excites us all. We bet that their wedding will be a big day for the couple. And we are glad that we are invited to witness as they exchange vows at church. The wedding invitations, the giveaways, the reception, the wedding gown, and the likes are awesome. The bride and the groom are really doing their best to make their day an awesome one. This event in their life happens only once, so they are making sure it is a memorable one and a great celebrations together with their family, love ones, relatives and friends. To my niece and to her husband, congratulations and best wishes to you both!

The costumes that I sewed


When the SIL told me that the kids will be joining in in the book parade at school I am excited. I told her that I will go with them and take some photos of the kids. It is their first time to join and I do not want to miss it. The older niece already picks the book character she wants and has searched online the kind of dress she likes. I have borrowed swan princess gown of my cousin however, she doesn’t like it because she already wear it during their Miss United Nation at school as Miss London. She doesn’t want to wear it again so to speak.

Luckily her younger sister Ella agrees to wear the swan princess gown. Good thing Ella is not that picky compared to her older sister. She knows and understands the situation very well, and I like her for that. She is like me I The nephew will be wearing a peter pan costumes. The SIL already pick his costume online. She picked the simple one. To my surprise, she told me if I could sew the kid’s costumes. What!? I only know how to draw costumes. I did not think of sewing one even in my wildest dreams. Since we do not have budget to go to the dressmaker, I tried to sew it but I did not promise to make a very nice result. Fortunately I succeeded in making the kids costumes. Look at in the photos above of the costumes that I made.

It’s hair treatment time

Once a year, I have my hair treated. And this happens during the month of December. It is my routine. Why December, because there are lots of events during this months. Party everywhere I must say and I have to look good and as well as my crowning glory. I have talked to the cousin of the one who did my hair treatment last year already. I haven’t heard of her reply yet, I hope that she is available to come in the city. Last year, she came because she has many clients that want her service. I have to book early because she has lots of clients and might be very busy next month.

Before, I used to go to the parlor/salon to have hair treatment. I have been to different salon because I do not like the service. I do not like the result of my hair rebond. However, after meeting the cousin of my neighbour, I guess I do not have to go to any salon because I like her service. I am satisfied so to speak. Also, she is doing a home service so it is less hassle. Plus the payment is the same when I go to the parlor/salon. Hopefully she will reply and do my hair treatment next month.

Entertain you when you’re stuck indoor

Rain means staying at home, being lazy, relaxing, resting and sleeps a lot. I love this However, doing the same thing and not being fruitful is a waste of time. Sometimes, I feel guilty because I rest a lot on this rainy day/s. I was taught when I was young that being lazy is a sin. I like to be fruitful during these days but the cold weather and the sounds of the rain pouring make me sleepy. Being stuck indoor is boring sometimes that’s why sleeping is the best thing to do for me than moving around the house.

Now, I have found a fruitful way to keep myself entertain while I am stuck at home because of the rain. Too bad I didn’t realize it sooner. I used to read a lot when I was still studying but because I face my computer most of the time now. I tend to forget the fun and joy in reading. Aside from it helps me widen my English vocabulary I will learned something from reading a book or pocketbook. My sister has books that are interesting to read. I will borrow her books and magazine one of these days and will start reading one by one on rainy day. Rainy day for me won’t be boring and lazy day at all because I now have found a way to keep me entertains.

Be look and feel young

As we aged there are lots of worries in our minds, the worries because of the visible wrinkles, irritable, forgetful and other visible signs that others may notice in our appearance. I can attest to that because at my age I have some worries. Though some people say that I am still young, but I can see and tell that I am getting older and some signs are showing. Arghs! I must say I am worry too much of being single at my age. People around makes me feel pressured and worry more. If only I can be invisible to them so I do not have to face them and answer the same question over and over.

Thinking about growing old and be look young and feel young is more important than worrying too much about my age and people around me. I do not have to apply beauty regiments to look young because I can do it without using it. To be looking young and feel young always, I have to start with having right attitude, healthy lifestyle and right choices in life. Wearing right clothes compliment to my/your age will make you look young and feel young as well. It is also important to simplify our life, choosing the right company, and having peace from the Lord. Lastly, let us not forget that beauty comes from within. Knowing that, be look and feel young is easy, no pressure and need not to worry with age.
