Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf

Posted on 25 November 2013 by Flisha

My new favorite coffee shop is CBTL or Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. Was forced to try their coffee when I was at work the other day and it was the only coffee shop around. Pleasantly surprised! Very smooth, sooo nice and frothy, mild coffee flavor – so perfect for me. And guess what, I did not get hyperacidity after. :) :)

My latest order was their Winter Dream coffee and it was DIVINE. :)

It’s That Time of the Year

Posted on 22 November 2013 by Flisha

My wreath is up! And so are the other decors which my sister helped put up (before she left!!) (Actually she did most of the decorating, haha!)

I wish for the holidays to come as soon as possible. Missing my whole family…

Learning Music

Posted on 22 November 2013 by Flisha

Cheap gia publications can be had online if you are learning about music. I mentioned before that I was learning to play the guitar. Well – I used to. Now I am just content listening to great acoustic music. But if I were still learning, the timing would be great because of all these resources online!

There are all sorts of music resources available now – than back in 1999. Today you have music sheets you can download online in varying degrees of difficulty. You have books on music learning theory. You can purchase almost any music that’s ever been created thanks to Amazon and iTunes.

It’s a good time to be a music student, indeed. :)

Lately he has taken to pulling clothes off the shelves when we’re not looking. Sneaky sneaky dog.


Wearing Earrings I Made Myself

Posted on 15 November 2013 by Flisha

I love accessories! Especially earrings, because all my youth my ears were never pierced. Tried twice, failed twice. For some reason, my piercings always got infected so they had to be closed. Third time was the charm, in my adulthood. Hence I cannot get enough of earrings! :)

A couple of weeks ago I thought of making my own. So after buying a few starter materials, here is my first creation! Hehehe! Did this in 5 minutes.

More to come!!!

Online Shopping, Sweet.

Posted on 15 November 2013 by flish

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rakuten Global Market for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Just yesterday, my precious shipment of stones, pearls, beads and other various raw materials arrived. So happy! :-) It was so convenient. I ordered from an online store last Monday, and it just so happened due to the size of my orders, shipping was free, so it was just like buying from a store – but without the hassle! My shipment arrived two days later, and here I am today with half a dozen new trinkets, all made by my own hands. :-)

So easy that I am tempted to make another online purchase. This time the plan is to Explore Rakuten Global Market, especially because I can Get Global Free Shipping Now. Rakuten is a Japanese company but it's available in English. Wonderful!

It's very easy to sign up. Just click the button "Sign Up for FREE" and fill up the form and then click on "Register Rakuten Membership". Easypeasy. I'm on my way to selecting something nice.

Let me see. Because I love watches, as you know from my previous post here, then let me find a pretty watch. I just enter the word "Baby G" (because it's from Japan!) in the Search bar and click the Search button. I tick on the button "Free International Shipping" just so I am sure I won't have to pay for shipping, hee hee! And here it is, the watch that I have been salivating over and it is even cheaper than buying it in the mall. 

I love this watch because of the unique design – let me tell you, out of all the Baby G designs, this is probably the best (for me). I love the quirky large numbers, the vibrant colors, and the girlish little heart instead of the number 2. Plus it's shock resistant so I can bring it with me to the gym.

All I have to do next is to Add to Cart, Checkout, pay via credit card and voila! I just have to wait for sweet Baby G to arrive in the mail. :-)

It's almost halfway through November. Around these parts, holiday shopping started in October and the mad rush to buy gifts is just getting worse. Have you experienced December traffic before? Ridiculous! I say, just visit Rakuten Global Market and do your holiday shopping (which includes gifts to oneself!) without ever having to leave the comfort of your home. :-) Now, before their 3-day global free shipping offer expires.

So, are you planning to skip the holiday rush and just buy online, too?
