Hooray! I’m just so glad mom finally decided to buy new curtains last, last weekend. I was really surprised because my mom isn’t usually the designing stuff. She’s just a simple person. If the curtains are still usable, then use it. So when she said she wanted to go to the home decor after we watched Hunger Games: Catching Fire, my eyes almost popped out from their sockets! Okay, I exaggerated a lot in there, but seriously, like I said, we were shocked. As soon as she said that, I grabbed her arms and walked to the department store as fast as we could for fear that she might change her mind. LOL. I’m glad she didn’t.
So here’s what we got.
And here it is in action. LOL.
All in all, mom spent PHP1,400 for three curtains, 1 pack of 3M Command hooks and 1 curtain rod. Cheers to the 3M command hooks! No more drilling on walls!
Three more weeks my friends and it’s Christmas time! I seriously cannot wait, but at the same time a bit on the sad mood because I’m pretty much broke. I’d probably do my Christmas shopping days before the 25th, which I hate doing because of the long lines and
lots I’m sorry, TONS of people going on about their shopping spree.
Anyway, have you guys done your Christmas shopping yet? If you still haven’t and finding a hard time looking for one especially if the person you’re gifting to is a musician, you might want to check out this gibson sg jr I found online. I bet you’ll find just the right guitar for him or her.
As for me, I’m still confused. Why is it so hard to pick a gift for men?!
OH YEAH BABY!
I have finally updated my WordPress version to 3.7.1! Wow. After years of using the old WP version, I can now use those modern WordPress themes that features sliders and widgets! Yay! This weekend or if I’m in the mood tomorrow night, I’ll try to look for a neat theme again for this blog.
Proud of what work you do? Or just a big, big fan of a movie, a book, etc? These coins can be a nice souvenir for those people who are a fan of something. Coins For Anything has it all, from sports coins, famous beverages coins, country coins, game coins, store coins and even military coins if you’re in the navy, army or marines. If you are a creative one, you can also design your own logo and have them work it out for you in a very affordable price.
For some weird reason, I can’t seem to update my WordPress version. I checked my cPanel and I still have at least 70MB left. Well, another odd thing here is that I have no big files in my cPanel, that’s for sure, but it has already accumulated to 180MB out of 250MB. Crazy, I know! Now I need to check my WordPress files again just to make sure there are no malicious stuff hanging around.
Moving on, I need to start reading again. I missed it already. It’s been months since I last read something. My books-to-read list is already piling up with interesting new books! But for now, I want to finish two before the year ends: The Eternity Cure (Julie Kagawa) and The House of Hades (Rick Riordan).
Next year, I’ll try to get to my reading habits. I’m not promising, but I will try my best.
Ha! First of all, new theme everyone! I know, I know, it’s been so long since I last changed it. Believe me, I have looked everywhere for the perfect one but didn’t find anything that’ll suit my blog. Finally, I just settled with this new white and pink theme. Personally, I’d like my theme here to be like a magazine style with sliding thingy at the top, but since I can’t update my WordPress to the latest version, most of the required sliders and widgets would not show up. This reminds me that I badly need to contact my host and have my space increase a little bit just for the update.
ANYWAYYYYY, I’d like to share these amazing Do It Yourself decors for your home. I would love to do the first decor which is really cheap in my opinion. All you need are sugar, cheap vases and twigs! Christmas is coming and as much as possible, I’d like to decorate our house with something unique and again, cheap, but modern looking. :]
Me likey this one too!
Those are muffin cups or whatever you call them. I didn’t recognized them at first until I read the caption and took a closer look. Amazing isn’t?
Wow. I have completely ignored my Goodreads account for months now. I have to admit that ever since my Grandfather died this February of 2013, I lost my will to read again. Well, not entirely, but most of it. I gained it back though after several months, but not as I used to read a lot back then. I think I read 3 or 4 books only in the span of 9 months. So not me. And now that I decided to logged in to my Goodreads account, I see that I am 57 books behind my 2013 reading challenge. I guess I have to make up next year.
I also checked out the Recommendations and Explore tab and oh my god, so many new, interesting books to read!! I seriously hope I can get back on track next year. Not just my reading habits, but also my health habits such as getting back to my old cardio + pilates routine.
Back to books, My next two books to read before the year ends are Julie Kagawa’s ETERNITY CURE and and Rick Riordan’s THE HOUSE OF HADES! Ah, I won’t let those two books not to be read this year. It should be THIS YEAR. :]
OMG! I just love discovering cover artists on Youtube. Check this out guys!
I really didn’t expect for a Harmonica to do this kind beautiful cover of Maroon 5′s Payphone. I bet you didn’t, huh? Talented artists like them should be recognized! Makes me want to buy this hohner blues harp at musicians friend for a new instrument to practice on. What do you guys think? I love trying out new instruments to learn. I’m gonna try to learn how to play Maroon 5′s Payphone as well on my grandmom’s piano this week. Wish me luck!
I’m missing my grandpa. He used to tinker out stuff in here even if it’s totally broken down. Surprisingly though, he always managed to make some of them still work for the time being. I say he’s genius. He’s the best grandpa ever. I wish he’s still here, watching movies all day or tinkering stuff.
And speaking of tinkering, if you happen to be a tinkerer yourself, and looking for a place to buy your hardware products at a cheap price, don’t forget to add Reid Supply to your must-visit-online-shops. Reid has been known for years serving people with their high quality and affordable supplies. With their reid supply catalog, you will certainly find most of the tools that you need not just offline, but also online.
OMG!!! I don’t know if I’m gonna be sad about this (him being rumored to be gay) or amazed. I’m sure if you live in the Philippines, you probably know who Paolo Ballesteros is. I don’t watch Eat Bulaga, so I don’t know the segment where Paolo goes drag.
Anyway, here’s an amazing make up transformation of Paolo as Anne Hathaway! AMAZING isn’t?
According to what I read, he does his own make up. For a straight guy, he did a fabulous job!!
You can check out more of his Hollywood make up pics on his personal Instagram account, which btw is full of his HOT HOT PICS. ♥
Oh my freaking god! Can I just say how I’m so inlove with this TV show?! Add to that are these two lovely couple? Whenever I watch them together, I’m like, I want this. I like how transparent they are together. In some degree, I like that kind of relationship minus Bones’ lack of social skills of course. ;]
And oh yeah, for those of you who are looking forward to Freddie Prinze, Jr.’s appearance, he will be a recurring character in this new season! Hurrah! When I first saw him, I didn’t recognized him at all. It was his voice that gave it away and I was so blown away that I wanted to see more of him in this show as a CIA. Woot!
I’m currently buffering the rest of the episodes which will probably take a couple of minutes to finish. Yay!
I’m pretty sure most of you have already heard about this viral video, What Does The Fox Say by Ylvis. It’s so popular it has now 132 million views since Sept 5 of this year.
My brother made me watch it one night and stresses that I should read the lyrics. So there I was in the first 13 seconds of the song when this guy suddenly sang about “dog goes woof, cat goes meow”.. I was like, is he serious? Is the lyrics sabotaged or something? And then I found myself laughing so hard when he came to the main chorus. SERIOUSLY?!
Aside from the weird lyrics but good rhythm, I got really curious as everyone else. So, what does a fox actually sounds like? According to google and some people who actually researched about this one, foxes can make up to 40 sounds. Another one I read from POPSCI.COM is that foxes goes like.. yow-wow-wow, ack-ack-ackawoo-ack, and YAAGGAGHHGHHHHHHAHHH. HAHA!
Some people find this song very irritating, but surprisingly, I don’t.
See, this one Youtube commenter: “it just explains that you don’t need lyrics with weeds , sex and explicit contents to create a perfect song . sometimes its just simplicity and a bit of humor.” — Paul Gonzales. I couldn’t have said it better myself. Seriously, the song is okay. The lyrics are just weird, but the sound is good. I especially like 2:57 onwards. Very HOUSE!
This is just so cute!!!
I really have a thing for charm bracelets. It’s something I am so thankful for because my mom introduced it to me back in my College days. You see, I’m not much of charm bracelet wearer. I just wear my old earrings in HS and I’m good to go. But then as soon as I stepped into the world of College, I realized, I should pay a little more with how I look. It’s not vanity, but it’s actually growing up. I came from an all girls school from Kindergarten to High School, so being in a College mixed with boys, looking presentable is a must.
Back to my love of charm bracelets, I did a little online window shopping earlier and found another online store that has a huge selection of Pandora jewelries! They have all kinds of designs and styles for you to choose from. You can even get a good deal from their jewelry clearance sale.
I wish I can buy one soon. I’m running out of new accessories to wear this coming Holidays.
So I haven’t been posting some Do It Yourself here lately. I’m sorry, I got a little preoccupied with a couple things and what’s happening with my life right now.
Anyway, I remember posting here a DIY iPhone holder here a couple of months back, but I just want to share this simple and yet elegant looking do it yourself iPhone charging station. Basically, the instructions and materials are the same as what I have posted before. The only difference here is the design.
I love how the creator added that little Apply logo. It makes it more cute to look at.
For the whole tutorial, you can check it out at notahousebutahome.blogspot.com/2012/01/diy-iphone-charging-station-tutorial.html
I’m not much of a sports girl, but when I tune in to something that interests me (ex. Football), I make sure to watch every now and then. Anyway, if you are lover of dirt bikes or go karts, make sure to add PowerSports to you online shopping websites. You’ll most likely find ATVs, dirt bikes and go karts that’ll fit your need.
This post suddenly made me remember this one time where I begged my mom to buy me a “scooter” (it’s what we call it here in my country). It was the “in” thing in our village. It’s like the next big thing if you don’t a car. Now that I’m adult, I just laugh at my silly complaints I made back in the days. Ah, teenage life, I really do miss you.
Now this is soooo cute!
Ooohh! Blood of Eden fans, check this out!
I really want to read this now, but my bookworm persona isn’t here yet. I wish it’ll come back soon because I’m missing a lot of books now. My Goodreads goal for the year isn’t even moving! Guess I’ll have to change it to 50 book this year instead of 100. :[
Watch the book trailer below.
So I woke up early than usual today. It’s probably because I slept kind of early last night. Well, not exactly early, around 11:30PM and that’s before midnight which is unusual for me. I guess I got really tired from all the walking earlier that day, so when we got home, I just went online for an hour and decided to just call it a night.
Anyway, this happened to me when I suddenly woke up around 4 in the morning:
It’s so funny because it’s exactly my reaction when I received a message from Viber. Didn’t know this funny photo when I decided to check out my favorite tumblr blog. LOL.
