Our Home : Christmas Decorations 2014

Hello my angels! The Holiday Season is upon us and I always decorate our home for Christmas few weeks before December hits. I absolutely love decorating for Christmas, it's one of my most favorite parts of the season and I just can't get enough of it. I can even decorate for the whole day, it's very addictive! I love all the bright Christmas lights, the gorgeous tree ornaments, and so many festive items that can make your house prepared for Christmas Day. We don't usually get the fresh pine Christmas tree because we don't want to waste it and just throw it away after Christmas. It's more environmental friendly and practical if we get a synthetic Christmas tree that you can buy from the mall. There's not wrong with it since it looks really beautiful as well.

We don't really do extravagant decorations inside, or even outside, unlike places in the USA and other countries. I wish we have extravagant Christmas decorations here in New Zealand, it would be really awesome to see them and they would make the spirit of Christmas even stronger. However, here in New Zealand, very few homes decorate their outdoors for Christmas. There's no huge Santa and reindeer on the rooftop or a huge snowman on the front yard, there's not much Christmas lights on the outside of the houses here either.

It was such a huge adjustment for me, because coming from the Philippines, I'm not used to celebrating Christmas in a very limited manner. We go all out in the Philippines, group of carolers singing Christmas songs on each houses for days until Christmas, huge Christmas lanterns on each houses and on the streets, a bunch of bright Christmas lights and decorations every where, the churches are all well light-up; they're just so beautiful! You can really feel the Christmas spirit there through and through; unlike here in New Zealand, it's fairly quite and subdued. I've been living here for 12 years and I'm still not used to it! I would say that the fun way to celebrate Christmas here is if you have many relatives and extended family members, which we don't have either. It's nice to have lots of friends and celebrate with them; but it's different when it's your own relatives, especially during special Holidays.

Anyway, enough chatter and let's get on with the purpose of this blogpost! I'll show you couple of photos detailing how I decorated our house for Christmas. They're not intense decorations, just a few touches that made the house festive and look like Christmas season. I'll try to decorate my room next year since I usually just focus on the lounge and dinner area. It would be really amazing if I can decorate my room as well, definitely next year!

My Travel Buddy : Navman MY600LMT

I recently purchased a new car since my old car is just hopeless. I needed a new car for my work since it's a bit far away, about 30-40 minutes drive from home. There's no way I'm going to take public transportation because it's very unreliable and it's just not ideal for me. To go along with my new car, I finally got a GPS navigation system. I've been wanting to get one since I'm very bad at directions. I don't know if it's a female thing, but I'm so hopeless when it comes to directions! It's time to get myself a GPS since I know I'm going to be so lost without it. I searched through couple of GPS and found that Navman MY600LMT is the best option for me, and it's the latest version from Navman's MY Series. I was so happy when I got it because I know it's going to be really handy in my future road needs!

"The MY600LMT car navigation system not only has a big 5” screen, but has some of the best GPS features of any sat nav in the market including the world-first Rapid Map Refresh – which is lifetime monthly map updates including safety cameras that are verified at no extra cost to you.

With Landmark Guidance Plus, this very clever GPS car navigation unit views the world the way you do through your windscreen and gives you directions based on what you can see, like colours or names of buildings. For example: “At the end of the road, turn left after the Toyota dealership into Smith St”.

Combined with features like Spoken Safety Alerts for Speed and Red Light Cameras and School Zones, Premium Driver Alerts for things like merging lanes and hairpin bends and Speed Limit Alerts, you will always know what is ahead and can drive with more confidence with your Navman. Live Traffic Updates ensure you avoid busy roads or incidents as well.

As your safety is a big priority, the MY600LMT car navigation GPS device comes with Bluetooth Hands-free and Voice Destination Entry so you can keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road and avoid fines in the process.

With more features than any comparable GPS in the market and Monthly Map Updates, the Navman 600LMT car navigation system will ensure you get to your final destination stress free." -- source: www.navman.co.nz

Celebrity Hairstyles Real Human Hair Wigs

We always put a lot of effort when it comes to our hairstyles. Most of us were blessed with long, thick, voluminous hair; but some of us struggle to achieve the volume and lenght we desire. Luckily, there are stores where you can find different types of wigs without any permanent change to your natural hair. It's also a great option if you're afraid to chop off your precious long hair, but you want to see if short hair suits you. It's always nice to experiment with different types of hairstyles. The amazing thing about wigs is that you can take it off whenever you like, and put it back on whenever you want a different look. They're also very handy if you're a model or an actor/actress!

I discovered a website called Wigsbuy where they offer customers real human hair wigs. They have a wide variety of human hair wigs for men and women from their online shop. Their wigs are different from other cheap synthetic wigs and they made each wigs with great craftsmanship. Their wigs can be curled with hot rollers or straightened with hair straightener just like natural human hair. You can even have the Wigsbuy wigs custom cut or dyed by your stylist. The wigs from Wigsbuy shop is made with 100% human remy hair. They created the wigs in a way that will prevent tangling, and the hair looks and feels silkier.

Food Craze : De Niro Ristorante Pizzeria Bar

Italian food is one of my most favorite cuisines in the world, you can't beat a satisfying pasta meal any time of the day! My sister and I wanted to go Downtown Auckland during Halloween to walk around and see the happenings at the central city. We've decided to go to our favorite food place called Elliott Stables to have dinner, then walk around the city for shopping and just browsing around. Elliott Stables is one of the most visited places Downtown because it's a place filled with different types of cuisines - restaurant quality gourmet style, they don't sell fast food at all. The place is comparative to a food court setting but fancy and serves restaurant type food. If you live around Auckland, you should definitely visit the place, you'll fall in love with the food and the atmosphere is very romantic and traditional! They have food from Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Latin America, Northern America, Asia, and many more.

Before we went to Elliott Stables, we stopped by at a store that sells Bubble Tea and order some of their delicious drinks. My sister and I already planned to get our meal from De Niro since we were craving for Italian food and De Niro offers the best! My sister always order the spaghetti bolognese, but I don't blame her because it's absolutely delicious. I ordered spaghetti carbonara since I haven't tried it yet and I haven't eaten carbonara for such a long time now, so it's definitely great timing. Their risotto is absolutely divine as well, it's a must try if you want to eat from De Niro, you'll definitely love it, I guarantee it!

NYX Cosmetics Xtreme Lip Cream (Absolute Red, Dolly Girl, Candy Land) Review | Swatches | Demo

NYX Cosmetics is one of my most loved affordable makeup brands. I'm totally obsessed with their lip products, and I just can't stop collecting them! I've recently been loving their Xtreme Lip Cream and I wanted to share my experience with you. I'm not fan of lip creams or glosses, but NYX is my only exception! I just can't get over how intense the pigmentation of their lip creams, they're even more opaque than some of their lipsticks, it's really remarkable!

NYX Xtreme Lip Cream is such a perfect name because the lip product is absolutely "extreme" when it comes to color pay-off. I was really impressed how opaque it is with just one swipe, and it actually lasts on the lips for a very long time. It feel like a lip tint sometimes because even if you rub it off, you can still see the color on your lips, especially for darker shades. It's just such an incredible lip product and makes your lips look very luscious and kissable!
