I am not yet done with my Christmas shopping. For a stay-at-home mom, you'd think I'd be done by now, assuming I can frequent my favorite malls, ticking off one by one what's on my list. I could have been, but half of the time I have work and I have momma duties so my trips to the mall aren't as frequent and as accomplished as I hoped them to be. I could only imagine the career women & men who have little time to shop and have no other choice but to brave traffic and mall crowd on weekends. ... [ Read More ]
Featured posts that deserve such attention because they're cool, you just gotta read them.

If I were to build my dream home, I would go for a minimalist scandinavian interior. Modern, clean, homey with a hint of quirkiness. For the longest time, I've had pegs of what my future home would be like. Now, I won't rely on just scanning and browsing online for home interiors as more and more brands are opening their stores here in our shores. Pottery Barn initiated it, followed soon by Crate and Barrel plus there's a chismis that Zara Home is also joining in the home invasion. But one thing ... [ Read More ]
