Letters to Santa and More

Here's another collection of free Christmas printables. I just can't enough of Christmas! I love Christmas!!! Aside from the fact that it's my birthday (well, technically it's the day before), Christmas is really the most wonderful time of the year! Not only do we feast on scrumptious food and give and receive presents but more importantly, we spend time with family and friends and make beautiful memories. :)

Anyway, if you have kids, here are some Santa letter templates plus other Christmas paper crafts to download and print.

Free Christmas Tags

Sorry I have been neglecting my blogger duties lately. I'm sure everyone's feeling the holiday stress and it's just funny how every year I keep saying I will manage my time better the next time around yet here I am counting the days until Christmas while I try to figure out how I will finish everything I need to do. And can I just mention the traffic? Oh my goodness.

Anyway, I thought it would be awesome to share with you guys the ton of free printable Christmas tags I found online. I don't like to use generic ones. There are nice and cute tags in stores but I feel that making your own makes everything more personal. Last year I made an embossed gift tag and used the prettiest white pen to write on it.

I figured, if I make my own tags again this year, I'm just never going to finish anything. And I'm so grateful to all the super talented designers who share their wonderful works! It is indeed the most wonderful time of the year (minus the darn traffic)! :)

Assumption Alumnae Bazaar Finds

Sorry for another bazaar post. Aside from gift items, here are the things my eldest and I got at the Assumption Alumnae Bazaar today.
Assumption Tarts :) - Php250.00 for a dozen

Harajuku Mini for Target FAIL

After the epic success of Missoni for Target, the bull's eye giant is launching Harajuku Mini for Target today, November 13. It's an entire collection for young fashionistas - from infants to tweens. I learned about the collaboration a month ago and immediately set an alarm in my calendar.

As I googled and stalked Target Style's Facebook account for more details about the availability of the collection online, I couldn't find out exactly what time I should be online to shop.

Ask and you shall receive (bad news - blagh!):

Shop @ The Fort Bazaar Finds

Until this year, I haven't been to a bazaar in a long time - probably around three years or so. I totally understand why people exert effort and visit bazaars. There are so much cool stuff to find at good prices.

I went to the Karl Edward International's Shop @ The Fort bazaar with the hubby yesterday to claim a pair of Sole Sister shoes which I scored for 50% off thru Deal Dozen. Since I picked it up, I didn't have to pay for shipping which would've cost me Php100.00 nor the bazaar's entrance fee since they gave free entrance to BDO cardholders! Yey!!! :)

Anyhoo, here's my new pair of shoes:
Sole Sister Sandra in Pink - Php499.00 from Php945.00 thru Deal Grocer

Shiny Disco Skirt

I was with my cousin yesterday, who is a crazy shopaholic. We've been hanging out a lot lately, which loosely translates to: "I've been spending a lot lately" and after our Quiapo and 168 trip last Wednesday, we decided to hang out again yesterday. We had lunch, went to the salon and went shopping. I was supposed to shop for Christmas presents but I forgot my list. Of course, I didn't go home empty handed. Hihihi. :)

After a quick roundabout in a couple of stores in Greenbelt 5, we headed to Forever 21. My cousin mentioned that she hasn't visited in a long time. And I found the cutest sequined mini skirt. Now, I need a perfect pair of bad-ass sexy heels. Help me and lead me to the right direction please? :)

Spangle Mini Skirt - Php1,025.00

My New Hair

I had my hair done yesterday. Actually, I had my highlights redone. I went to the salon last Monday, got a haircut and FINALLY had my hair colored! I had my hair digitally permed a few months back and my friends have been telling me to get a color job. My peg was Jessica Biel's ombre highlights. My hairstylist wasn't satisfied with the outcome of my highlights and requested me to come back (for free) and I happily obliged! :)

Last Wednesday night, my husband and I decided to watch American Horror Story. I thought I was going to have a heart attack.

Review: Inglot Eye Shadows & Kevyn Aucoin Blush

Here is a mini loot I got from a makeup artist friend who came from the US with a TON of makeup stuff to sell. I firmly told myself I will not see him but after a week or so, I was texting him, asking if he has this and that. Since I was, and still am, on a makeup shopping diet. I just got a couple of things. What I really NEEDED from him was a Make Up For Ever empty magnetic palette (which I do not have a photo of at the moment as I am still trying to organize my makeup - hard work! Whew!). When I met him, he was with other makeup artists who were also buying from him. Surprise, surprise! He brought everything and I couldn't stop myself from looking through his goodies.
