Top 10 Gift Ideas for Mom


Today is Mothers Day. Let's give our mom something special. Here are some of my gift ideas.

No. 10 - Flowers
Roses. These blooms are linked with motherhood. The number choice on Mother's Day. To the Greek goddess Isis, these are sacred, that's why it is ideal for mothers. Roses also symbolizes Mama Mary. The other choices for flowers are Lilacs(signifies love between mother and child), Irises (symbolizes warmth and affection), Orchids (refinement and beauty), Carnations (symbol of a mother's eternal love), Tulips (new life, spring and charity) and Lilies (usually added to mixed bouquets on Mother's Day for their grace and beauty).

No. 9 - Candles
Personalized candles are popular gifts during Mothers Day. Let's give our mom a relaxing moment with the flattering and soothing light, and mind-clearing aroma of a scented candle.


No. 8 - Gift Cards
Surprise our moms with gift cards! Give them a break from a busy schedule and shop to their favorite boutiques. They can choose their own gift and we can assure that they got what they want!

No. 7 - Gift Basket
If your mom loves cooking, gourmet gift basket will be a bright idea. Gardening gift basket (hand rake and hand shovel, garden gloves, a book about gardening, choose seeds from her favorite flowers). Pamper mom with Bath Gift Basket (her favorite soap, facial cleanser, foot soak, hand cream, body scrub). You can also choose variety of chocolates, wines, cookies, fruits, books, or any mom's favorites. It's the thought that really counts.

No. 6 - Home Spa Treat
Entice mom to take a day off with a collection of essential body oils. Enhance your mom's spa experience by using specialty bath products you don't use everyday like specialty body wash, bath salts, bath oils, and milk baths. Give her some beauty treatments mud mask and facial peel masks. Wrap herself with softness with Spa robe or towel.

No. 5 - Home Decor
There is no place like home. Home is their sanctuary. Some moms are fond of collecting home decors. Give them something unique. Decorative pillows, lampshades, rugs, vases, candle holders, collectible figurines, etc. These will remind her of you even if your not around at home.

No. 4 - Sweet Treats
A box of chocolates, cookies, brownies or tarts for her coffee break. Personalized cakes and pastries would be a great idea too.

No. 3 - Greenery
Some moms enjoy gardening. Why not give them some potted plants. Plants will make homes more relaxing and stress free sanctuary. Flowers also can give color, fragrance and life to the home. It can also changes the mood. Gardens are usually a place to escape. It can lessen anxieties. A place for gentle rehabilitative therapy and prayer. This can also give mom an exercise as well as enhanced emotional being.

No. 2 - Perfume
Give her a bottle of her favorite perfume. They said that scent is the most powerful sense attached to the memory. Here are the Best Fragrances for Mothers Day 2012: 01) Prada by Prada - according to what I read, this scent is for the powerful and confident women who can do it all. Containing blend of bergamot, rose, patchouli, raspberry, sandalwood and vanilla. 02) Chanel Chance - for sophisticated women. Includes pink pepper, lemon and pineapple, hyacinth, jasmine and iris, amber, patchouli, vetiver and white musk. Great for showing off your lady-like demeanor. 03) Omnia Crystalline by Bvlgari - soft floral fragrance. Includes Asian fruit Nashim, apple and pear, lotus blossom, and some woodsy notes. This is a great relaxing fragrance which all mothers will enjoy. 04) Alfred Sung - great for a working mom. Composed of orange, mandarin, bergamot and lemon, ylang-ylang, galbanum, jasmine, iris, vanilla tones, orange wood, sandalwood, amber and vetiver. 05) Calvin Klein Euphoria - for the on the go mom because its fragrance last long. Includes scents of Sicilian bergamot, peach, green notes, lotus, champaca, orchid and wite, sandalwood, and liquid amber.

No. 1 - Spa Treatment
After a lifetime of making you feel good when you needed it the most, treating her to a day of relaxation is one small way of paying her back.

Let your mom feel special on Mothers Day.

Little Pairs Treasured

Valentine's Day is just a day ahead. People are rushing to the malls to buy some stuffs and surprises for their loved ones. And again, it's raining outside. Planned to have a quick window shopping a while ago. Unfortunately, the rain is heavy. For sure, I will have a hard time for a cab.

Anyways, here are some of my treasured stuffs. Got my cam and had fun shooting. I love them! In pairs huh....

These are figurines. My friend gave it to me last 2005 I think.

This was a gift to me when I turned 18. It's been 10 years! More likely a jewelry box. It is a figurine..

I love collecting angels when I was in high school. Way back in the late 90's. I don't buy. It's in my wishlist. That's my close friends made sure that I would surely love their gifts!

This is my favourite photo! This is a key holder (The chain was lost!). This was a "friendship key holder" from my college friends. We always do have some things in common when coming to our class! I miss my friends...

These treasures are kept with care. I love collecting small things. It's the thought that really counts...
Happy Hearts Day Bloggers!!

Shopping at Novica

I was wondering last week why a lot of my visitors came from Rosa's Yummy Yums.. At first, I didn't mind. Until Rosa sent me a message to email her. There is something for me. I won a$50 worth of gift certificate from Novica. Again, I wondered and curious. When I opened the website, I like it! I'm a fan of National Geographic. I was really excited for the jewelry collection. I love their designs! I enjoyed browsing the items. Add them to my Wishlists. Someday.. I'll gonna buy them! hehehe

My first choice is this, Garnet and smoky quartz earrings, "Blossoming" by Nareerat. According to Novica, Garnet is believed to have properties that provide stability, grounding, and courage. Some cultures also associate garnet to sexuality, bounty and fertililty. I also chose quarts because it is my birthstone (April). Garnet, the stone of love and devotion. Quartz is an Energizer and Amplifier.

My other choice is the Pearl and amethyst beaded bracelet, 'Lilac Rose'. Pearl is a symbol of feminine wisdom. It symbolizes Honesty, Purity, Wisdom and Integrity. And I think that's why it is best for a bride to wear pearls during her wedding. Amethyst is a stone for spirituality. I like this stone because it is said that it can help reduce stress and bring calmness and clarity in times of confusion.


And the last.. The top 1 on my Wishlist for my Birthday... Garnet Heart Necklace, "My Love".
An exquisite necklace (according to Novica). Garnets seem to palpitate within a sterling heart. A declaration of love, this exquisite necklace is carefully crafted by Indian designer Neeru Goel.

Thank you Rosa for this wonderful gift certificate at Novica.. :-)

My Precious Mine

Another year is here.. and as I looked back at the years passed by, here are some things that I treasured...

The latest gift that I received and value most... Its from my boyfriend... A lovely crystal earrings.. At first, I was hesitant to wear it in the public... I found out that its nice as it sparkles..


Next is something i got from Hongkong Tour. It is simple yet elegant authentic jade ring. And truly didn't regret to have this as my remembrance from my Hongkong vacation.


My eternity ring. I bought this ring last 2007. It caught my attention because of its different colors. A rare collection. I saw many eternity rings but not as this one. No multi-colored gems.


This bracelet is something I've been searching then the beaded bracelet is not in season. I searched every malls here in our place but there are no thing like this.. I gave up.. Fortunately, I went on a shopping and bumped this bracelet.. I bought it immediately.. At last I found it! hehe


Happy New Year!!!

Christmas Time Again!

Christmas time is here! I don't know if its for the weather (a little bit chilly and rainy).. And this time, it's really Christmas time because:


as we all know, malls decorates to catch customers attention. Small and big decors attracts people to go for shopping! Or just have picture taking with the decors..


Most of us have Christmas trees in our home. This decor caught my attention when I went shopping. It is acrylic. Looks like a snowflake especially when I turn on the christmas lights.


And of course, almost everyday we had our Chrismas Party and gift giving. This photo was taken during our Christmas Party. We had an exchanging of gifts with our code names (funny, but our code names are names of some of the sexy stars both local and international!). Its fun!

This Christmas is so merry and so blessed. The unexpected bonus from our employer. Hope that our personal business will have a good start.. And I'm so thankful.. Next year will be a tough year. Another challenge.. Again, Merry Christmas to all!!!

Bloom in Focus

As a hobby, my favorite subject is a flower. Sometimes it is called "bloom" and sometimes it is called "blossom". It has its own beauty.
Blooms have an immediate impact on happiness. Every person, especially females have a positive emotions when receiving flowers. Their smiles, extraordinary delight and so much gratitude.
Blooms have a long term positive impact on impression. The feeling of less depressed, bothered, and worried after receiving blooms, prove unique sense of joyfulness and life contentedness.
Blooms make intimate bonds with family and friends.
Blooms make us happy! So give your love ones a flower this Christmas season and make them feel loved!

You and Me



Another year passed... Another year ahead...
I'm thankful that I found you. There are some misunderstandings. But I hope these will be tests to our relationship. I guess meeting you is an extraordinary event. And I hope this dream will be forever.

Thank you for making me strong in times that I want to give. For your patience, even if sometimes you made me cry for bullying me. At the end, you're the sweetest person I've ever met. For the time you spent with me. I'm hard-headed. But still you managed to handle me.

You're a blessing. You're heaven's gift to me. Thank you for coming.

Happy New Year!

My Long Time WishList



Its been 10 years since I wanted this camera! At last! got it as a Christmas Gift from my Dad. Im so happy because this is my hobby. I love taking pictures. Since college, I really wanted to have like this. This is always my dream cam. I used to take pictures using compact camera.

When I was in college, I just watch people having this cam and wish hope someday I can have it. Im sooo happy that it was given to me as a gift. Because here in the Philippines, cams like this is very expensive. Only a few can afford it. That's why its a dream for me to have it. Next step: to study more on photography! yippeeeee!!!

Thanks to my dad. I love it! Nice to have you SONY A33. :]
