Footwear for Winter

A few months from now, we’ll be welcoming winter here in the middle east. I was browsing a friend’s profile on Facebook and saw her daughter’s ugg boots which looks so comfortable in the feet.

I wish I could find the same style here in Qatar for my little one. She’ll look definitely cute wearing this types of boots. It doesn’t snow here in the middle east but hey, if the shoe fits, it’s called fashion.

My mom used to collect various Bath Towels when I was still young at age. I never really thought why, but now that I’m a mom, I realized that these are things which is essential in our lives. Having a good quality produced by USATowl.com is a must at home.

Comment on Sourcebits.com Review

My friend has an iPod and downloaded a lot of iPod App on it. I would love to own an iPod and an iPad. I love all Apple products too. I’m a newbie with iPhone and it was a challenging step for me to have a touch screen phone for the first time. I thought it will be hard for me to adapt on it, but with these types of review like yours, made me realize that its all easy to have one. My brother I think is planning to have an iPod as well and will recommend Sourcebit.com to check the products and services that they have with all Apple products

Alice in Wonderland Lampshades

~source here.

It’s not really hers but I find it unusual seeing these photos. Remind me of Alice with her tea party, so I called on her behalf. They look cute, aren’t they? The colors are a perfect match. I’m just wondering if (for real) if they do work – I mean if they do lit up. LOL! Wonder where the wirings are… hmmm…

A New Wedding Ring

I should post this on my other blog but I think this is for a fashion within me talking so I decided to post it here instead.

I’m looking forward to have a new wedding band for me and my husband, and I would love to have something with a loose diamonds if given the chance. For now, I’m looking over these designs over the web and hopefully could get something similar to these ones. Hubby opt to wear a silver ring.
And I wanted something simple like this.image

…and something expensive too, like this:
Well, let’s hope that we could find a good deal with this one. We’re not in a hurry to change our wedding bands. Actually we don’t have a legal wedding bands. In Islam, it’s not really required to have a legal ring but of course, all wife and husband should have at least something in common right? I hope that Hubby would agree on this. Sigh…

Her Cutest Smile!

DSC_8357 copy

Meet my little girl! Baby J’s 20mos old and exactly 2wks. We’ll be celebrating her 2nd birthday in the Philippines this November. I’ve totally forgot about this photo that was taken 2 months back. A meet up with hubby’s co-workers before they launched Virgin Mobile here in Qatar. Good thing that I was able to have a copy of all the photos on hubby’s laptop. I uploaded I think around 30 photos in Facebook and allowed hubby to tag his friends. I’m glad that they liked the retro version for all their photos.

And speaking of laptop, I need to buy a new one. I’m currently using hubby’s old desktop. I’m not complaining – not at all, it’s just that these laptops which are currently on sale are all eye catching. I need to convince first the husband to have our desktop on sale first.

“Meet My Baby!”

I couldn’t believe my eyes that my favorite actress who has just grabbed the best actress awards in the Oscars has just adopted a baby boy from New Orleans. This is such a shocking news. I was dreaming of seeing her with those maternity clothes on building up a new family for her like Julia Roberts. After adopting a baby boy, I’ve read as well that she just filed a divorce with husband Jesse James. Well, who are we to judge her decisions? For as long as she’s happy and contented, that is all that matters.

Louis Bardo Bullock – you’re blessed to have Sandra as your mom.

Barney’s Little Girl


Selena Gomez is one of the kids singing along Barney’s DVD. I was browsing as usual these weeks fashion online when I came across her biography. She grew up beautifully and sexy. Never imagined that it was her singing Happy birthday with baby J’s favorite TV character Barney.


And it felt so good that she’s dating Twilight’s actor Taylor Lautner. Wow! I love her curly hair. They look so cute together.

Eat, Pray, Love

image Even before they made it a movie, I’ve always been curious about this book. I saw the first 2 pages of it and it’s feedback from the readers and one of them is an insight from Julia Roberts herself. And I’m so happy that she’ll be the one who acts as “Liz” in the movie. The last time we checked the bookstore, the book was currently sold out. I was planning to give it as a gift to a friend who loves reading. Probably next time aside from her reading some best weight loss supplements found on line, she might as well inspire her needs to be loved and to pray. I’ve heard that the movie will be released here in the Doha by August. I’m not sure if I can squeeze in a free time to watch it with my girl-friends. But I’ll sure grab a book to read it during free time.

Caribbean Cruise – A Dream

An online friend recently took a cruise for their 1st wedding anniversary. Their photos was all great that I’m wishing in time, me and my husband can have a ride on a Royal Caribbean Cruise line. We could visit Hawaii with their extravagant get away for better relaxation or we could visit Bermuda with their white sand beaches. We need to save up for these one if that will be on our list. We’re not in a hurry for these types of travel plans, but we could arrange something if there will be an offer and if our schedule fits + not to forget the little toddler who’s making our lives meaningful everyday. Insha Allah, God willing we can do this someday.
