Yes..yes..Japan is bringing sexy back. This trend is catching on with the japanese teenage girls which originated in Brazil. Bikini meets jeans, Jean thong for $ 80.35. You name it. I was speechless.


My girlfriends and I went out last night and we had dinner at Houstons in Century City for dinner.We all have been friends since 2nd grade in the Philippines. We have one friend in San Francisco - Patoots and 2 in the Philippines - Anna and Trina. We miss you guys. Anyhoo, we had a great time and just by looking at the pics,what are the odds. After months of not seeing each other. After months of planning a get together. Karen and Hedda wore the same top. And no they did not shop together at Anthoprologie. That was a crazy moment We also finally met Matt. Never had a chance to really talk to him. It was nice meeting you Matt.

Chloe pursued topshop

Chloe successfully pursued Topshop for copying it's yellow overall dress. We have seen Forever 21 copied DVF and Gwen Stefani's LAMB. Does Topshop want to risk its goodwill with customers by ignoring Chloe’s claim? One thing is for sure: Integrity isn’t a disposable commodity, or shouldn’t be.

Peach Custard Pie

Yummy Peach Custard Pie Recipe

Peach Custard Pie
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Take 6 to 8 peaches, depending on size, and peel, pit and slice in half. Place peaches cut side up in an unbaked pie shell. Set pie on the lowest shelf of the oven and immediately turn temperature to 400 degrees. Bake 25 minutes. Then pour over them the custard mixture: 2 eggs beaten with 1 cup of sugar, 2 tablespoons of soft butter and ¼ teaspoon of salt. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 30 minutes


This fall is going to be very busy and expensive for our fam. Paul can't wait for football season and we are going to 4 games this year in 4 different cities. And that requires travelling and looking for deals. Thanks to Travelzoo. Finally planning a trip makes it easier.

Cruel Shoes

I just wanted to share this article from one of my MANY favorite magazines --->
Today in PT . It talks about proper footwear to prevent bunions and aching feet. I just bought a new pair of shoes and I just hope it will not give me any foot problems..YIKES!!! Here is an excerpt from the article: Therapists will do better by their patients if they make them feel comfortable admitting they would rather not relinquish their Manolo Blahniks. "Fashion is a big force. You need patients to be straightforward about their footwear needs," says Corcoran, explaining that patients will adhere more to a program and to any suggestions for reducing the time they spend in treacherous footwear when PTs work with them this way.


Finding jeans and bra's are so hard to do. I spend most of the time going in and out of the fitting rooms to find the best jeans and bra fit. Thanks to ZAFU . They finally i ntroduced bra fitting today. One of my fave links. I know I have to start adding a link side on my blog site.

Mom Spit

Nope, it's not what you're thinking. MomSpit eliminates chocolate faces, sticky fingers, grease, dried food, and mystery dirt. It leaves skin clean, moisturized and smelling yummy.

Shoes for the little tykes

I can't believe how expensive shoes for kids nowadays. It's so hard to find inexpensive fun stylish ,and functional for kids. I went to babystyle last week and saw some nice shoes. It's different and it's cool. So when I got home I google search for Vincent shoes. And the first thing I saw was 75% summer clearance. SWEET!!

Fall Shoes: Steal VS Splurge

Ahh, this gorgeous red-soled shoes ---> Christian Louboutin. Those devilish red-soled shoes that haunt me and the rest of us. So, I went to Nordstrom's today for their 3 day Anniversary sale and just wanted to look for some Fall 2007 Shoes. As I was browsing the aisles. I got so excited and saw this pair of Steven shoes it was on sale for $69.9o, which is within my budget.
Compared to the Christian Louboutin's shoes for $785.00. I told myself. Someday.. someday... I will be able to afford one of those red-soled shoes. Anywho, The worst part was that the Steven shoes was SOLD OUT . It was already sold out yesterday. I was soo bummed. I guess I'll just have to start saving and get those Christian Louboutin Shoes.

Vintage Care

What is Vintage CLothing? Antique, worthy of collecting or displaying in a museum, at home. Sometimes it is used interchangeably with "retro". Anyways in my previous blog, again Mary who collects and loves Vintage Clothing told me that she cant wait to go home and check if she was able to get this beautiful coat she bid on ebay. So I was wondering how does someone care for vintage clothing. Aha as I was checking Kate Moss' Topshop , I ended up in their Archives-Care of Vintage Items. NICE!!!!!

Fabulous Fall

My co-worker, Mary and I were talking about Coats, Shoes, Boots for Fall Season. Ahhh, Fall. Summer is not even over yet and we are excited about Fall Fashion. It's also because of the weather,runways,fashion shows ,magazines. Just like the glamorous Angelina Jolie who's back as the face of St. John knits 2007. Is it the convertible, the clear shades, that gorgeous white coat, the hair, the pout. Im sure there's more to come from this line. I just cant wait for Fall 2007.

Under the sea

Summer is always connected to Beaches. Going to the beach is always fun thing to do. My fam loves it. Packing up from the beach is always a hassle. The kids wants to stay longer, you have to brush off the sand, and carry everything back to the car. Well in Dubai they are buidling the World's FIRST luxury underwater hotel . If you cannot wait to see Ariel, you can call Poseidon Undersea hotel in Fiji after September 17,2007.

Girls Night Out

Yes, friday night is girls night out. My girlfriends ---> Shauna, Natalie ,Suzi and I go to the temple at least every quarter then go to dinner later. Hopefully Nana and Chantel will join us next time.

We went to Seagull Bookstore before going to the temple, because Suzi had to buy a present for her Sister-in-law who is getting sealed tomorrow at the Los Angeles temple. It was soo funny, we went in the store and helped Suzi pick something nice for her sister in law, but when she can't decide and she needed some time, Natalie, Shauna and I went on our separate ways and started shopping. I ended up buying a movie and a book, Natalie bought 2 books and Shauna also bought a movie and a book. Before we knew it, it was 630pm, so we rushed to Natalie's car and drove across to the temple.

The session ended at 8pm and we drove back to Torrance for our dinner. We celebrated Natalie's belated Birthday ( June 26th) at Macaroni Grill. What I really love about this girls is that we can talk anything under the sun, they're funny, silly, fun to be with,very dependable, they can be serious and also very spiritual. I am so grateful and blessed to have closefriends like them. I have learned so many things from this girls. They have taught me how to be strong, be gracious, and most of all to be more spiritual. And I am soooooo GRATEFUL for that.

We ended the night with a full stomach ( yeppers) and a big laugh which we always love to do. For our next get together in August at Shauna's place. Nana hope you could make it this time.

Folding Fitted Sheets

It's friday and it's bed sheets laundry today. Folding sheets is one of the toughest to fold. Because 1. I'm short 2. My arms are not long enough to hold the bed sheets and refrain from touching the floor. So thanks to Jennifer Decristofano's video on how to Fold Fitted sheets.

Getting Started

Paul and John B. have been blogging for almost 2 years now. I remember my friend Tara J. from Las Vegas who always talks about her journal and that she always carry her camera with her. She once told me that if she see something interesting, beautiful or memorable she puts it in her journal and attaches the picture. I guess I would say that she inspired me to do this for a long time. I want this blog to be my online journal. So here goes...
