Birthday Gifts

We went malling at Trinoma last Saturday. While having lunch, Hubby asked if I want to replace my old cell phone with one of the latest model. If I want, he’ll get one as my birthday gift from him. I got excited but daughter warned, “C’mon Ma, don’t believe Papa. It’s just a ploy; he’s just pulling your leg.” The father is known to always make a joke on anything, hence, the skeptical reaction. The daughter even bet to pay the father 1,000 pesos if he’ll really replace my old cell phone. What she doesn't know then was that, the gift was already in the car. And to cut the story short, daughter paid the father 1000 pesos for being a doubting Thomas.

And here is the cell phone in question. Hubby's birthday gift.

And from daughter is this 18k white gold bracelet pictured below. Actually, she was asking me what I want. Then just gave me the money so I can choose exactly what I want.

Thank you so much guys! I don't think you know how much you made me happy on this birthday of mine.

Take a peek on my old cell phone. Only for basic use unlike the new one which is so complicated.

Bringing Out Your Inner BOLD!

Bill Blass said, “Style is primarily a matter of instinct.” Decorating takes on a new meaning for each individual. Clever and chic for Janie may be yesterday’s yawn-fest for Carol. Different tastes in dècor mean different furniture, artwork and color palettes. So what is the rule of thumb for making your place zing if it’s not a certain style, pattern, or color?

Bold, baby! Bring out the Y-O-U!

Boldly say what you want to say when designing a room. Make a statement and let your personality shine through. If you go in for the palest blues to soothe and relax, add a custom zing to make it pop! Love black and white photography? Maybe even some of that ultra-hot photo alphabet wall art in black and white? Splash in some passionate pink or revved up red on the wall to make it sizzle.

No longer are walls content with neutral shades. Any color of the palette goes! Splash on muted melons or eccentric eggplants with savvy sage. Classic colors cozy up with velvety crimsons and Dijon yellows. Color is fantastically bold and beautiful! Rich textured throws, swags, rugs and runners jazz up every room, every time.

Patterns are all the rage now, too. Twists and twirls, paisleys and pearls! Did you ever in a million years think of dotting stripes and striping dots? Designers these days are pulling out all the geometrical stops. Paisley mixes with all sorts of combinations-checks, polkas, and weathered solids. Discover a new way of looking at the world around you in different shapes and designs.

Mix it all with gorgeous gilding in silver and gold. Toss in a few well-chosen accents-bold and beautiful. And with the trend of decor becoming more and more personalized, a meaningful piece of photography will make you feel right at home. Black and white as well as the historic look of sepia photography looks gorgeous in any room. Add all these ingredients together, and you’ve got yourself a decorating design that not only expresses your individual style but does so as personally and beautifully as you want it to.

Whatever you want to say while decorating, say it with your own personal sense of style. Put it out there for the world to see and don’t look back! Embrace your individuality whether your nature is “Janie jazzed” or “Carol calm”. Express yourself! When people enter your home they’ll shoot you a complementary smile, knowing it looks and feels sooooo perfectly like you. And no one can do YOU better.
