Driving on my way home today, I see a rainbow. Luckily, my purse was at reach that I can grab my camera to take a shot. Thanks for the traffic too, I was able to take a picture. 

Have a nice weekend to all and happy Skywatch Friday.

Bottega Verde

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Bottega Verde. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have good news for ladies who likes to pamper their skin with only the best and latest beauty products, Bottega Verde, Italy’s largest cosmetics brand is now here in the U.S. They are available locally in the U.S. and all their products can be purchased online at bottegaverde-usa.com.

Bottega Verde cosmetic is the no. 1 cosmetics brand in Italy with more than 6 million clients. They make beauty products containing natural active ingredients like shea, almond, aloe, honey, olive oil and a lot more. You can select products for your face, bath and body and even perfumes. I am interested in their Musk Rose Face Day Cream, a facial cream that I can use everyday and with the help of its musk rose oil ingredient, it will leave my skin looking younger. This is ideal for women like me who wants to prevent signs of aging. I also like the Cherry Blossom Body Milk, a scented body lotion but leaves your skin silky and soft. I do not wear perfume so I like my body lotion to have some soft fragrance and at the same it nourishes and softens my skin.

Check out these new beauty products ladies. If you want to sample Bottega Verde, you can get an Italian Beauty package for free (a $24 value) by just paying the shipping of $4.99. The package includes Foot Mint deodorant cream, cherry blossom body wash and musk rose face day cream. I will definitely order this because the package has two of my favorites.

Goodbye My Sony Vaio Desktop

After 10 years my Sony Vaio deskstop just stop working today. I bought this in 2000 Black Friday at Best Buy. Yes, I woke up early and be in line to avail the big sale after thanksgiving. This is the top of the line at that time with flat screen, dvd, cdw, etc. I never had major problems; had been infected by a virus several times but still up and running. The only upgrade i had was the hard drive to 160 gig then reload windows xp when i got a virus.

This morning when I woke up I saw vertical lines on the monitor. I turn and off several time but still the same. I tried putting another monitor thinking that maybe the monitor is bad but no luck. I just unplugged everything and put it away. Now I have my laptop on my computer desk with more room. For the whole 10 years, it cost me $100 per year for my ever reliable desktop.

Big Sale At Liz Claiborne Outlets

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Liz Claiborne New York Outlets. All opinions are 100% mine.


I would like to congratulate my husband’s tennis group for winning the tournament last Saturday. The tournament starts at 9 am so we left the house early and just had breakfast at the bagel shop along the parkway. We did not get to our destination until past 10 am. We got lost several times. We have a GPS
but it kept on leading to the wrong address. I was almost frustrated and just wanted to go home but it paid off when they won the tournament.

Since we are almost halfway to Atlantic City, New Jersey, we decided to go to the outlet stores in AC. I got an email that Liz Claiborne New York Outlet is having their entire inventory at a huge discount – Everything must go at 40% - 80% off!!! I told my husband that he can go around other stores while I did my
shopping at Liz Claiborne. I got very good deals on sweater, jackets and boots. I shop not only for my fall and winter clothes but also for my Christmas presents to friends and family members. It is better to start early with your holiday shopping to avoid the crowd and take advantage the big sales.

It’s not too late to do your shopping at Liz Claiborne. Liz Claiborne New York Outlets are located nationwide. Visit http://www.lcnyoutlet.com/storelocator.phpand find the nearest outlet store near
you. Happy shopping!

On My Way Home


I took this picture on my way home this evening. It was around 5:30 p.m. and ahead of me I see these dark clouds. Rain has started to fall but if I could just turn around and take a photo of the west side, it was still a bit sunny. Weird weather, right? I know there is a tornado warning (yes, we also get that here...very strong winds for about 10-15 minutes leaving a lot of damage) but I'm hoping we don't get that tonight. I'm still 20 minutes away from home hoping that I get home first before it starts pouring.

Happy Birthday Car

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Dual Electronics. All opinions are 100% mine.

My car just turned 8 years old this weekend! From the bottom of my heart, I am really thankful for my ever reliable car who never gave me problems and still running great. Although, it has little scratches, I could say that she is still a beauty. I really don’t have a name for my car but when I bought it, the most popular song that time was “My Boo” so I was calling her “my boo” for while.

So what did I do on my car’s 8th year? First, hubby brought her for inspection at the Motor Vehicles. I was surprised, they only do emission inspection and that’s it! DMV do not care about lights, wipers, dents, etc anymore. Even if, I know my car would pass the inspection with flying colors.

Here is another treat for her. I am going to order from Dual Electronics the latest mobile receiver they have called XDMA6630, a single in dash CD/MP3/WMA 240 watts receiver that has bluetooth technology and direct USB connection for iPods and iphones. This package is all I need since my car is unlike the newer models that carry all these features. First the Bluetooth, I don’t drive while using my cellphone because in New Jersey you get fined for hundreds of dollars if you get caught so with this Bluetooth I will be safer and will never miss a call while driving. With the USB connection/charger, my daughter will be happy that she can play her songs from her iPod and a car charger for my iPhone. Also, with the 3.5mm auxiliary input & 2 RCA preamp outputs, that will be for hubby if how he is going to improve my car’s audio.

Happy 8th year to you my dear car. Hope you give me another eight years of fun and safe driving.

Kids Got My Makeup

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of BH Cosmetics. All opinions are 100% mine.

When kids are quiet, something must be going on. My instincts were right! I know they were busy with something that kept them from running around the house. It’s not normal to me.

 Yesterday after I picked up my daughter from school, her cousin tag along with us since her mom cannot pick her up on time. When we got home, I gave them snack and they all went to my daughter’s bedroom. I was busy in the kitchen but I noticed that I do not hear any noise coming from the bedroom at all. Maybe they are doing their homework I said. I got curious because it’s almost an hour with no noise is not normal at all. Slowly I opened the door and I saw the girls with my makeup and eyeshadow on!!! How they got my BH cosmetics makeup, I don't know! Those are my favorite makeup especially the BH cosmetics eyeshadow that is highly pigmented and bendable with strong staying power. I used to buy my makeup at a local drugstore but when I learned about BH cosmetics, I found how much savings I can make. I am more of an eyeshadow person but I think I need to order another of their 28 colors palette neutral eyeshadow after the girls had fun on mine’s and the 10 pcs. deluxe brush set in red color.

Citi Field

This is the Citi Field Stadium, the official home baseball park of the New York Mets. It is located in Flushing Meadows, Queens, New York. Citi Field, an $850 million ball park replaced the old Shea Stadium, completed in 2009. The first game held in this new stadium was last april 2009.

I took this photo on our way to the Billie Jean Tennis Center which is next to Citi Field. Citi Field's parking was used to accommodate tennis fans parking during the U.S. Open (when Mets is not playing).

Have A Fun Filled Day At Kissimmee

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Kissimmee Tourism. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have been to Florida twice already. We drove from New Jersey on both trips. The first one was a short two day stay with no chance to visit any of the theme parks around Orlando and Kissimmee but I saw why they call Florida as one of the best place to spend a holiday. Thus, my second trip to Florida was purely a vacation for me and my friends (I was still single that time). We were in Orlando for three days and the whole time was spent visiting all the theme parts plus Sea World. On our fourth night, we all moved to a hotel in Kissimmee, to explore the other side of Florida.

Kissimmee is another destination when you are in Florida. It is known as the heart of Florida and truly there are a lot of things to do in Kissimmee Florida not even for a fee. First, let us stroll around the Old Town.  It is a complex where you can dine, shop and have entertainment. It is nonstop entertainment at the Old Town; from karaoke, bars, dancing or just walking around and visit the 75 specialty shops in the area. If you are into cars, you will surely love the Saturday Night Cruise showcasing more than 300 cars or the Friday Night cruise where vehicles from 1975-1987 are featured. The famous Disney Boardwalk or Universal’s City Walk is also a place you should not miss. After a fun filled night at Kissimmee, you can relax at the best hotels, inns and resorts around Kissimee or you can enjoy the outdoors. You can go canoeing or kayaking at their beautiful lakes and streams, explore the wildlife, go fishing or play golf with your friends.  I tell you, they have everything in Kissimmee. A lot to explore and a lot to offer for everybody.

See you at Kissimee Florida!
