Ending The Week

Friday 2/15/2013

Thank God it’s Friday!!!  Or so they say 🙂  Fridays can either be a relief or gives you tremendous pressure especially if you’re in sales.  This Friday is not the end of my work week.  I still had to go to our site project the following day to assist my agent with her clients.  But I’m not complaining….I am blessed to have a job 🙂

Friday 2/15/2013

For our Friday dress down day, I wore a white see-thru blouse with triangle collar, skinny jeans and a white and black wedge shoes with Pearl necklace and pearl earrings.  I love pearls and every Filipina should have pearls in their jewelry box 🙂

Friday 2/15/2013

And they say “Thank God it’s Friday!!!”  Oh yeah!!!  After work I headed to the newly opened iHop restaurant to meet a friend who’s visiting from Norway and some other friends.  There was a long waiting time before we were ushered to a table.  Wow, it was a long wait but worth it.

Saturday 2/16/2013

Saturday was a work day for me but I’m not complaining…With this view how can you even complain.

Sunday 2/17/2013

I just noticed this weekend I’ve been wearing white 🙂  Well, you can never go wrong with white, you can pair it with just about anything 🙂  Dawned a loose white shirt with silver metal like pocket, faded skinny jeans and silver Toms shoes, such comfy shoes 🙂  Ready for church!!!

Sunday

 

I took this shot right after church.  It was a sunny day, I don’t know why it looks gloomy in this shot but it still looks beautiful.  This Sunday, Zoie (my grandchild) was not able to come with me. I missed her but it gave me time for myself, ME time 🙂  I always like spending weekends with her.  Usually after church she likes me to take pictures of her and she would pose as a model. Hahaha!  If you’ve read my previous blog you know what I mean 🙂  Well, this Sunday, I was by myself thou I miss her but i was able to have time for myself, I moved about without worrying about her.  Hahahaha!  You know how kids are, they are full of energy and I need to keep up with her 🙂  I’m looking forward to seeing her tomorrow.

Clean Perfume

I just had to share this…This perfume smells ohhhh so good and refreshing.  True to its name it smells like you just came out of the shower.

Well, that’s my weekend wrap.

Thanks for stopping by, would love to hear from you. Interesting to hear from people you don’t even know and maybe end up as blog friends.

It will be a golden brown color. Remove from heat. Make sure to let the butter cool for 5 minutes before adding to other ingredients.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the sugars and browned butter. Stir in the egg, vanilla, flour, baking soda, salt and cornstarch.

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 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.

Monday Work Attire 02/04/2013
