Don't worry, we will all survive the craziness of the holiday season. And we will learn to accept the amount of money we had to spend because we will see the smiles on the faces of our loved ones when they see our gifts for them! Also, there's the next year to start dieting. I for one have not stopped eating since the first Christmas party I attended.
I would like to congratulate Tini for learning to wrap gifts this year. "A" for effort!!! And also for finally learning how to shop for me.

It's bad enough some of us have to suffer with bad eyesight, but we don't have to look like nerds in the process. Yes, contacts are always available but why not take time to look for the perfect frame to add character to your look.
After years of searching, I finally found an optical shop I love, Eye Experts by Sabater. The proprietors of the branches I go to, Leslie and Dr. RJay Javier, are quite young, making them very aware of the current trends.
The "in" thing right now are colorful frames reminiscent of those in the 50's and 60's. I already got two to match whatever outfit I'm wearing. One is transparent with "catwoman" like shape and the other, a black-rimmed one for that sexy librarian look.
They have new arrivals recently of GAP and EKIN frames in funky shapes and colors.
Other than great frames, they also have really good service. They have a camera so you can see how the frames look on you on t.v. Well, I just can't trust mirrors anymore and of course, this appeals to my vanity!
Let us take eyeglasses to another level and be geeks no more!

I'm really a dog person but once in awhile there's a cat that catches my eye.

Wonderwoman and Harlequin

I'm sad. Unhappy. Morose. Melancholy. Desolate.
No amount of shopping will make me happy this time.
That's how depressed I am.
Ugh! I started hated weddings when I started catching the bouquets. Whoever said whoever catches it gets married next is a total looney and an even bigger liar! Sigh... I'm starting to turn red with fury again (at ang itim-itim ko ha?!)... I'm trying to count backwards (from a hundred!)... But once in awhile I find something nice out of this barbaric and hopeless ritual.
Our family was invited to our neighbor's wedding on the 27th. I love, truly love, their invitation! The most creative invites yet! The groom actually won a Palanca award for a children's book he wrote several years ago. So they made a sort of children's book out of their love story. I just scanned a few pages, but I hope you get the idea.
The invitation is a little bit thicker but will leave a lasting impression. It made me want to attend just to see what other gimmicks they're hiding up their sleeves!
Of course all I have to do is stay away from the bouquet and I just might really enjoy the evening.
Note: I'm actually helping a really close friend of mine prepare her wedding. The whole barkada is helping her out. The first ever wedding of LEGO GANG!
