I would have to say that this particular tattoo design on a handbag would be the first one that has caught my eyes. I was really not fond of the tattoo designs that most have came up with. And i am sure it is because of the fact that most of the handbags with the tattoo design has too much of a hardcore feel and personally it is not my style. Im not saying anything bad on their behalf either. Like i said its just not me. Now the thing that draws me to the leather tattoo clutch is because of the balance between edgy and soft. Ofcourse available at $458.00



I wanna hold em' like they do in Texas Plays
Fold em' let em' hit me raise it baby stay with me (I love it)
Luck and intuition play the cards with Spades to start
And after he's been hooked I'll play the one that's on his heart

Christopher's 5th birthday

On Valentines day of 2009, my nephew Christopher Mark turned five! I cannot believe how years have gone by so fast. I was in my cheerleading uniform, sophomore and was almost late to class when i got the phone call about Candi who was about to give birth. And yes! I sat down and talk to Lenin while my car was outside and was on for about 45 minutes. Needless to say i was very much late for English. Not to mention that we were having a pep assembly at noon and there i was thinking about skipping school! That did not happen, instead mom and i drove Friday to meet Christopher.

I remember the very first time i saw him i cried and he smiled. He was a premature baby, due to Candi's diabetes. He was so small and had the most beautiful blue eyes that ofcourse turned light brown after some time. I've called him all sorts of name such as Boobas, patoohtah face and bubs! It is quite funny how no one else can call him nick names such as me, he wont let them.
I suppose its probably because throught my highschool years every morning i would wake up and pick him up, because ofcourse Candi would still be as leep. There Christopher would be on my bed watching music videos while i get ready. And when he turned one, i would get ready in the dining table; where Christopher would be sitting on his high chair with a bowl of cereal. He learned to eat by himself really early and before he could even understand whatever was coming out of my mouth, he always hear tita Len Len singing ABC's.

So for his birthday, he wanted TRANSFORMER
which i was very excited about. Mom also made Filipino food, which was absolutely great. Oh man, Christopher was so excited about his birthday. Originally we were planning it to be outside and since it still cold due to Joseph City snowing the previous week also Flagstaff was still very cold and at times snowing. We decided to just have it in Candi's house. Which by the way he did not complain. He was much excited about his gifts that were on the table. I think it was more of opening them and how many he recived rather than what they were.

Christopher waiting to open more of his presents... And yes that is his fake smile, not because he was not happy but because he wants to see what they have given him.

MAC Hello Kitty Collection!

I was soo excited when i found out that MAC came out with a Hello Kitty collection! Seeing as I'm Asian with no sister, four brothers and the youngest of all. Hello Kitty was a big part of my life while growing up. I think i was such a shock to all four of my brothers because for so long every toys in the house was either guns, robots or cars. And since there was years of gap between all of us. The only thing they thought was right to get me was Hello Kitty stuff. Which by the way i did not appreciate back then, i didn't want barbies and dolls, i wanted cars and guns. But now that i don't get to see them so often because of the fact that not only do we not live in the same house anymore(which i miss soo much) but we don't even live in the same country! These days every time i see anything Hello Kitty it brings memories and as cliche as it sounds it makes me feel so close to all of them.

Now back to MAC... which is by the way one of my most favorite make up brand. The Hello Kitty Collection is of course limited edition. So enjoy it while it last.

Versace Venita Bow Satchel

This absolutely gorgeous satchel is one of the newest handbag in Versace spring line 09 collection. I know all of you fashionista out there is dying to have this very handbag! Who wouldn't? How often do you see a style like this? I do believe women of all age can sport this satchel. This head turning double handle satchel with wide swaths of supple pink leather and the simple but very elegant trapunto stitching that made into a bow with gold logo on top is a must, not only for this spring but most definitely for this year. And for $4,395.00 you can have your very own! Although you will have to pre order, which you can do at Nordstrom. But you have to act fast because its limited.
So there's this guy... he happened to be the nicest guy i have ever met! And im glad i met him. Because now i dont know how my life would be without him.... And i love that he can be as dorky as i am!
