I can’t decide for my Wedding Gown, will you help me?

YES!!! You read the title right. Am I getting married? I would say YES, again and this time it will be a renewal of our Vows in front both our family and friends and most especially with the blessings of our Almighty God through the Priest in His Holy Church.

But before that is going to happen, I need to find the right Wedding Gown for me to wear. I want to go with something simple yet a fairy tale kind.

I’ve been browsing online and I did find designs and where to purchase the item. I just want to share here the Wedding Gown that I am eyeing with.

This is my first option: I like the unique design and the simple front embroiled and the color red back design because it matches the my Wedding Mofit.

My Second option in which my husband likes to, he also likes the first one. He mentioned as long as it won’t cost him a thousand dollars for he is fine with it. I’m being practical knowing there will be more things to pay once things are settled.

Looking for the cheapest flight

It’s supposedly a surprise for my family in the Philippines, but I am not sure if this will be any more. As I have spoken with my sister and my parents that we are all going home for a long vacation during our Summer Season. Of course, this will not be summer in the Philippines because this is a tropical country.  The day we will arrive is definitely Summer. It may be, rainy and wet days, yet I’m hoping it would not be.

I’d like to enjoy as much sunlight and sweaty days as possible, before we all go back to face another cold weather.

Going back to find the cheapest international flight is  a little bit frustrating. If you are a frugal like me, I’d like to ensure that I can also find a better value, shortest flight with a convenient time of departure and arrival too. Sounds impossible? Unless I have to buy a ticket that is a rocket sky price. However, for someone who had been researching and working on how to save money in our daily basis situation is not.

Just the right day and timing as what mostly says. You can actually get those three aspects that I’m working on as long as I am quick and determine. After all, nothing works if you just do nothing, and it pays off the hard works  you do, right?

Provided you do have a fixed date, things will just come smoothly. Why I mentioned frustrating? Because my other half, just doesn’t know when can he fly back with us. I really don’t care if we will fly  separately, but it’s best too as well.

Make sure you check at night time, sometimes there are websites that gives out cheap prices in the morning too. But mostly you can discover the best deal at night time. Make sure to have your dates ready and that can be adjusted. Check multiple websites, they have the same flight itineraries,  but different prices. Do not settle in just website unless you are using miles.

Once you find the trip, you desire? Make sure to book it right away, it may or may not be there anymore when you come back. If you’ve done this way, you just found a better deal for your vacation.

Meanwhile, since I am waiting for my other half to give me his fix dates. I might as well check about> website. Maybe I can stumble on a good deal about guitars to get. 

My DIY Gift Baskets/Box for Christmas

Having your own project for something you need the most is just amazing. It also saves you more money at the same time, you know that you have all these things around you that you think are useless before you come of an idea about what project to do.
I mentioned to my one of my blogs about the Gift Basket that I have given away to my friends, and family. They seem to enjoy and love the personal care that was in it.

The first 12 boxes I purchased in the store, because it is 70% off and it’s a nice box in which you can really re-use it into something.

Since, I got run out of it and the store didn’t carry the same size that I wanted, a friend of mine who is doing the same idea about gift basket just given me an idea to DIY my own box. It may not be an expensive basket, but it is something that I need to put the gifts in, also sturdy enough to hold the items.

I got an empty shoe box, a Christmas wrapping paper, a tape and a gift plastic, ribbon and a tag. Easy to do, and voolah!!!! It is ready!
Box is purchased....

It did save me a lot of money and next time, I’ll definitely recycle those boxes. Meanwhile, because we save more from gifts this year, I do have enough time to buy a nice extra musiciansfriend microphone mixer on the money that I just saved.

Everything and a Happy Ending Book Review

I have finally got the chance to read the books that have been stocked in my Kindle Reader or app for a quite some time. The reasons have been just too many that I couldn’t even figure where to start.

Given the opportunity to read is a privilege and reading about the insight of the book’s story is even better.

This book is amazing, if you are looking for a good novel to read at night or during your free time. I would recommend this one. 

EAAHE, a memoir published by Mascot Books, details the journey & soulful shift of her story as Tia shares her holy grail & the trail she took to transform her life.  After moving through her own metamorphosis she then helped an old friend, Ray Romano, moves through his own transition, going with the flow very private, but most profoundly.

 “My journey almost destroyed me.  Almost. Boy have I come to like that word.  What a pleasurable word almost can be.  You may almost be ready to buy my book.  You may almost be ready to begin an amazing new journey of your own.  You may almost be over that rainbow Judy Garland sings about.  What great potential almost can hold if you can flip your way of thinking.  Just imagine, controlled pessimism, doubt & fear flipped into blind optimism, faith & love.” 

 That flip helped Tia move to a place where heaven meets earth…the pearly gates of her own happy ending.  Changing the ending for her story brought a pure, precious, peace of heart, but kicked her butt a bit as she made her way…committed to keeping her faith.  The book was a Plan C, maybe even D, but Tia was determined, after a dedicated intention & divine decision to start swimming more with the current of her life, instead of bucking that flow.  Her ordinary, relatable story took an extraordinary, fantastical turn when she showed the Universe she was committed to her intention & her desire to be given an opportunity to make some new, different choices.  EAAHE is a memoir that shares the “how’d that happen?” & the “how’d she do that?” in a holy hope of helping others to  see life in a new way.

 EAAHE recounts 3 interconnected relationships & love stories that enabled Tia to love truly, deeply, & most of all, love herself.  Three special circles she rounded with Ray, her dad, & her ex-husband.  A true woman’s full circle journey to learn how to really trust, how to “thine own self be true”, & then, the real & true love it led her ‘round back to.  It shares how the power of love & a journey to intimacy helped her make a faithful flip which began a sacred circle & new chapter… one that would allow a different ending for a story she had begun writing for herself when she was much younger.  One that Tia feels strongly will inspire other women of a certain age to keep faith that it’s not too late to write a new ending for their own, as they embrace their history, not try to re-write.

 Tia is, most days, filled with joy.  She is, every day, filled with peace.  She looks forward to a happy ending each new day now, however , it unfolds, whomever it holds,  & whatever way the Universe molds, as she continues to create a new “happily ever after”, staying committed to rising above her fears, moving out of her comfort zones, and going with the flow of her life.

 Here is what the customers are saying about the book on Amazon -

Red Hot Chili Peppers Are Expected To Rock North America In 2017!

photo not mine

The courageous band of alternative music pioneers, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, are expected to rock North America with an expanded tour next year!

Hold On To Your Pants As RHCP Are Prolonging Their 2017 North American Tour! 

Are you ready to rumble? You’d better be because we are expecting tons of hardcore (or should I say alternative?) fun next year with the amazing RHCP tour all across North America. The Peppers seem like they’ve dedicated the lion’s share of their year towards satisfaction of their US-based fans.

It really looks like Red Hot Chili Peppers tickets 2017 will be rocking around on pre-sales like hot cakes. The rumor says it that some of the most loyal fans are already granted access to booking and purchase of backstage passes.

What about the initial dates?

Originally, the show-trail was destined to begin on the 5th of January in San Antonio. It was aimed to be live and kicking straight until the 18th of March. Vancouver was to be the last stop.

That noted, fan-ticket sales were launched in November so if you are reading these words right now, all of the best seats are probably already taken. The best shot would be to tune in into the extended edition of the Pepper’s journey.

What should I know about the extended tour?

First and foremost, it is important to note that the tour across North America will be fairly longer than originally indented. New dates, new shows, new cities to conquer – RHCP got it all covered.

The extended tour will kick off at April 12. That’s a several week’s pause between the original end date and new concerts. Apparently the band will need to chill for a bit after all that heat. The new leg will begin in Washington, D.C. and will take the Peppers all across the land to Chicago. The finisher will be held in the city of mobsters on the 30th of June.

Don’t get too encouraged though. Yes the Peppers will be playing April, May as well as June but the pauses between shows will be colossal. A bit more than one might call berthing space, but not too long to stop calling the series of shows a tour.

What are the Peppers promoting?

Every ticket comes as in one shiny package with either a digital or a standard copy of the newest Pepper’s album – The Getaway. Needless to say, that’s what the band will be promoting and, frankly, that’s really cool. The album itself already got in the top of the charts with “Dark Neccessities” and the prominent “Go Robot” on its heels.

Where can I get the tickets?

Given that the sales are already on online purchases are your safest bet. Traditional resellers have already pumped the prices sky-high, while smaller teams like TicketCrab are only offering the finest services that. Aside all rest, include:

·        Personalized event feeds. Choose and bookmark events you are interested in and get notifications in advance. This way you won’t ever miss a show because of lacking tickets.

·        Local Geo-based notifications. You will be notified about all of the coolest parties going on around your area. 

·        And, of course, the ability to purchase the entrance to the show of your lifetime without leaving the comfort of your home or office.
