Dress Down Red Friday :)

Fridays are dress down days at our office.  We are allowed to wear jeans but no sleeveless tops.  Every month we have a themed color to follow on Mondays and Fridays.  This month the theme is wear something RED, since it is the LOVE month (Valentines).

What to wear?  I just recently purchased a pair of red jeans….PERFECT, right 🙂

The red jeans was perfect for our theme this month. The white see-thru blouse complimented my red jeans.  I like red, its vibrant and gives a lively color to any outfit.

View of the beach!!! Pico de Loro Beach and Country Club, Hamilo Coast, Nasugbu, Batangas

Yesterday we had to go to our project in Nasugbu, Batangas in the Philippines at  Pico de Loro Beach and Country Club at Hamilo Coast.  I always fall in love with our project over and over again every time I go there.  I Live in Metro Manila and work for SM Land which carries Pico de Loro, Hamilo coast as one of their leisure projects.  Our office is in Manila and since we are in sales, we often go to Pico de Loro to bring our clients there.  What wonderful work I have, I have the city and the beach to enjoy while working 🙂

Let me show you how beautiful our project is before I show you what I wore today for work.  If we have to go to Pico de Loro, we are required to wear light-colored slacks and white or blue collared shirt (or a collared shirt with our logo on it) So anyway let me take you on mini a tour of Pico de Lore at Hamilo coast.

Black & white Floral Dress

I am very partial  in choosing black and white clothes but doesn’t mean i don’t pick other colors since I like playing with colors in my wardrobe.  I just have more black and white because it’s so easy to pair it with anything.

Today I wore a black and white floral dress for work and paired with a 3/4 sleeved blazer, very safe and classic colors 🙂

Vintage Tuesday!

Vintage Tuesday!

Vintage mood today.  Why go Vintage today…Why not?  I love vintage clothes and things, I like mixing old and new not just with my clothes but things for the house as well 🙂  It makes the past and present converge and gives character to what you wear.  I also like how some vintage clothes have bold colors that makes you stand out and not look like the ordinary.

This is what I wore for work today 02/05/2013

Monday Work Attire

I”ve always love to dress up and keep myself updated with the latest trend in fashion.  I also like experimenting in dressing up.  There are days that I want to go with bold colors and lots of accessories and there are days that I just feel drab but still manage to look good (or so I think LOL) I’m doing this section of my blog to keep a journal of what I wear everyday and look back at it and maybe laugh or cry because i made a faux pas in dressing up for a certain day LOL!

I go to work from Mondays to Fridays and sometimes on weekends too (arrrggghhh) Oh well, you gotta do what you have to do 🙂  Monday to Thursday I have to be in business attire and Fridays is dress down day in the office, meaning you can wear jeans but no sleeveless tops hahaha. So, This is what i wore today for work.  A gray polo dress and used a black wide belt on my waist for accent and gray pumps.

DIY All Purpose Lemon Rosemary Vinegar Cleaner Naturally Scented

I found this All Purpose Lemon  Rosemary Vinegar Cleaner recipe as I am trying to pursue green living at The Yummy Life blog page.  She has a lot of interesting stuff in her blog.  Its a must that you check her blog out at the www.theyummylife.com/

 

Lemon Rosemary Scented All Purpose Cleaner Concentrate

Lemon Rosemary Scented All Purpose Cleaner Concentrate

When I saw this recipe for an all natural scented all-purpose cleaner, I knew I had to try it right away.  but it takes 2 weeks to store it.  I’m a bit of an impatient one and I had to try to forget it for two weeks after mixing this by doing other DIY stuff that does not require you to store it LOL ( you can check some of my blogs about those here)  now back to this All Purpose Lemon Rosemary Cleaner. I’m excited to share this to all of you (thanks to the yummy life blog)

All Purpose Lemon Rosemary Vinegar Cleaner

What you will need:

White vinegar

Lemon peels

Rosemary Twigs

essential oil – lavender

vanilla extract

**yup that’s all you need**

How:

put lemon peel inside a jar and some rosemary twigs

fill your jar with white vinegar until it covers all the lemon peel and rosemary.

add 3 to 4 drops of the lavender essential oil and a few drops of the  vanilla extract

cover the lid and put a mark  on it on the day you mixed it, i used post- it and taped it on the lid.

Store for 2 weeks

After 2 weeks of storing:

Use a strainer and pour the mixture in a pitcher (easier for you to transfer it to the spray bottle, that’s what i did)

Pour 2/3 cups of the scented vinegar in your spray bottle and 1 and 1/3 cups of water (i used a 16 oz spray bottle)

add 3 to 4 drops of your lavender essential oil and a few 1 to 2 drops of your vanilla extract

dilute and add more scent if you wish

Store the remaining Lemon Rosemary Vinegar concentrate in an air tight jar so you can mix again once you’ve finished your first one. (economical, don’t you think)

shake a bit and use

All Purpose Lemon Rosemary Vinegar Cleaner :)

All Purpose Lemon Rosemary Vinegar Cleaner 🙂

I mentioned earlier that I’m a bit impatient, So I used it right away in my kitchen sink and chopping board and it works and I’m so happy!!!

This Lemon Rosemary All Purpose Cleaners shouldn’t be used in granite surfaces and marble.  This can be used for almost everything, including wooden floors 🙂  The best part is that its cheap to make and is all natural.  Great for gifts too 🙂

Go try it now 🙂

Sunday is the best day of the week!!!

Sunrise is more fun in the Philippines :)

Sunrise is more fun in the Philippines 🙂

Sunday….Is my favorite day of the week.  It’s a non stressful free day.  No appointments, No business calls, No dress code and NO TRAFFIC!!!  Sundays are more fun in the Philippines 🙂

I look forward to Sundays.  Being a single mom and grandma (Yes, I am a granny goose LOL) Sundays are usually spent with my daughter and granddaughter ( or more often than not with my granddaughter)  Its church time and bonding time in my book 🙂 Today was another fun time.  After church we headed to the mall to have lunch and did some window shopping (which i like doing lol)  Zoie (my grandchild) had a blast with cupcakes and Ice cream ( i told you it was a free day LOL )

Talk about Sugar high!!!  We went and checked out this new stall at the mall that makes candies right before your eyes (make it candies).  Zoie was glued watching them make candies.  It was actually interesting.  Boy!!  Can I just tell you that candies are made with 80% sugar.  tsk, tsk, tsk!!   Think a gazillion times before you pop another candy in your mouth 🙂

finsihed products of the "Make it Candies" store

Remember, think a gazillion times before you have another candy LOL!!!

Every Sunday,  Zoie likes to take pictures and pretend to be a model.  She calls it our photo shoot.  This I enjoy doing with her (will post another blog about our Sunday photo shoots) It documents her growing up years and I’m going to show it to her when she grows up.  I’m sure she’ll be embarrassed or maybe have a good laugh of how she was when she was a kid.  I treasure moments spent with her and I’m very thankful and feel blessed that I have a grandchild in somewhat a young age.  I had my daughter when I was 18 🙂  (will post another blog on that too lol)  When my daughter (Aimie) Told me that she’s having a baby, I cried a bucket for many reasons.  One of my lame reason was…Oh my!!  I’m going to be a grandma and thought usually when you’re a grandma that means that your old and your life is at its end.  I was proven wrong!!!  It gave me a new meaning in life, a new-found joy unknown to me before. So now, I cherish each day and look forward to building more memories.

Photo shoot time for Zoie :)

Zoie wants me of course to model with her LOL!!  I give in right away.

Sundays too, is time to visit other relatives ( it’s not every Sunday though) Today, we also visited my Uncle who suffered from a stroke years ago.  Because of his stroke, he cant really go out that much.  His family prepared dinner for us and he was glad to see us.  It was also very nice to reconnect with our cousins and catch up.  I thank God that we were able to visit our Uncle and make him smile even for a while.  God truly has His ways.

Too bad we were not able to take pictures with my Uncle since he got tired and went to bed after dinner. It was really great to see him and his family.  It made us rekindle fond childhood memories and that’s when you realize you are blessed.

Sundays are the best, don’t you think so???
