Yes, this is too sweet to consider as dessert. It’s definitely good too. A great buy from my recent trip to Europe. This is so good, Hubby likes it too.

I also like that I can practically bring it anywhere! Want one? (*wink*)

Rewriting our Christmas List

As the days and weeks go by, we gain more friends all throughout. This means that we also have to rewrite our Christmas list (the people we care about and we give gifts for Christmas). The longer the list the better because it simply means we get to have more and more friends everyday. (*wink*)

So yes, I re-wrote our Christmas list and so far we are good to go. We can start our Christmas shopping SOON! 3 more months to go, we should actually start as soon as possible. At least for now I’m done with the list. Now I’m thinking of the most special gift – the Hubby’s. Every year I would think twice or even thrice on what to give Hubby. This is because he is into gadgets but he somehow has all that gadgets that he need already. So now I’m thinking of an accessory that would go with his drum set. I can get one of those eletrtic guitars too since he sold his already a couple of months ago. I will have to think about that more and then we’ll see.

Shoe Selfie inside Duomo Milan

One of the beautiful yet most simple Duomo I found is the one in Milan. It is because the outside of the Duomo was so beautiful yet the design inside was very simple. Except for the floors…

The floors were so beautiful and rustic too. There is a certain feel when you are inside this Duomo inspite of the tourists bustling in and out of the door.

I love this Duomo in Milan. Definitely unforgettable!

Is it Time for Moto 360?

Usually, I’m not interested with these Android watches. Simply because it’s too big and unnecessary (since I bring my smartphone everytime). But, look.

Motorola-Moto-360-Smartwatch-5

The Motorola’s Moto 360 caught my eye. The design is classic and it looks like it has a lot of features that other smart watches don’t have.

And I can even choose from black/gray leather or light/dark metal.

moto 360 light-metal-watch

Here are more features that are really interesting…

- Classic Design. Moto 360 stays true to the timeless form of the classic wristwatch. A round design maximizes the display area while ensuring a comfortable fit, so you can get the information you want conveniently on your wrist.

- Quality Craftmanship. From its stainless steel case to world-renowned Horween® leather, each material is carefully chosen and meticulously crafted. Corning® Gorilla® Glass helps prevent scratches to protect your investment.

- Timely updates at a glance. Moto 360 displays timely notifications based on where you are and what you’re doing, so you always stay on track. Weather, flight alerts, traffic, and more, all powered by Android Wear. And all as simple as a glance at your wrist.

- Responds to your voice. Voice control makes it easy to get things done, even when your hands are full. Just say “Ok Google” and you can send texts, set a reminder, check the weather and even ask for directions.

- Take steps toward a healthier heart. Keep track of your steps and know your heart rate thanks to a built-in pedometer and heart rate monitor. Plus, only the Moto 360 heart activity app tracks your progress toward your goals using daily and weekly benchmarks.

- Over time, it gets better and better. Receive app notifications right on your wrist. Moto 360 works with a growing number of apps, from Facebook Messenger and Pinterest to Eat24 and Lyft.

Is it about TIME I buy a smart watch? I think so.

Looking for the Best Artificial Grass for your Backyard?

We were so busy over the weekend making sure that the home renovation continues. You see, during the first few months of the year, we’ve prioritized the most important items in our life. These are the kids’ school tuition, clothing, food, summer activities and more. These are the first priorities of our family.

Now towards the second half of the year, we are focused on our home renovation. We’ve pretty covered the flooring which was damaged by the storm. We removed the affected flooring, searched online for the replacement and basically we got it covered right after the first half of the year. Everything is now settled when it comes to floor renovation. In this part of the year, we’ve also managed to have our air conditioner cleaned up and checked. We’ve got that covered too. I know, it’s been a busy year! Now, we are working on the new stuff like the setback or mini garden that we’ve “abandoned” for years now. We couldn’t find the time to prioritized it after all the repairs. So, now that we are somehow done with everything, we are into the new stuff that our house truly deserve. No more putting off our mini garden. It’s time to start working on it.

First, plants. We noticed that we couldn’t take care of live pants for the past 7 years, so we’ve decided to go for artificial grass this time. We are not risking another set of real and live plants now that we are too busy with our everyday routine. Good thing there are actually artificial grass gilbert az and greens online that we can buy. Woot, woot! This is the reason why I love the internet so much. I could buy almost EVERYTHING without leaving the comforts of my home. Aaaah, bliss!

Now, Agapeturf has three types of artificial grasses – bermuda, super bermuda and fescue. Now what to choose? Don’t fret because ALL of these grasses are actually good. Here are more items that made me decide I should get them:

- 70 oz. face weight, 142 stitch rate/yd, gauge 3/8 inch
- Super Bermuda – 80 oz. face weight, S-Fiber
- Pile height 38mm (1 5/8 inch)
- Excellent air and water permeability, 16 gal/min/sqyd
- Durable wear resistance for long service life
- Strong tensile strength and good elasticity
- Anti-aging properties, UV resistant PE+PP monofiliment yarn
- Low maintenance upkeep
- Poly Urethane backing
- 10 year pro-rated warranty

I was actually convinced because of the last item – 10 year pro-rated warranty. Sounds like a really good deal to me! This is because with all the maintenance that we experienced for the past seven years, we realized that it is expensive to maintain a house. So it is important to also consider warranties on the items that we bought. At least by this, we wouldn’t have to shell out money as much as possible – a pretty advantage for a family with kids in school. So yes, we found the right company for artificial grasses, now all we need to check is if they provide services to my country.

Remembering Milan on a Monday Morning

Aaaaah, MILAN, one of my favorite cities in Italy. Staying in Milan for just a couple of hours wasn’t enough. Wish we could stay longer!

IMG_8997

After being in the cold cities, I was glad that the weather has gone up by the time we were in Italy. It made us enjoy it even more.

I was actually wearing all the coats and jackets but when the temperature got hotter in Milan, I just removed the thermals and I ended up wearing a black top and leggings.

…Plus the scarf I brought from Belgium.

Aaaaah, this outfit was perfect for the hot (and windy) weather!

Pink, Red or Blue?

Aah, leather bags. There were ALL over Italy. I was trying to avoid them actually, but the moment I laid my eyes on these bags, I can’t choose which color to get anymore…

IMG_0235

I literally went CRAZY over the genuine leather bags of Italy. I love them all! But I chose only ONE. The red one, and I’m so glad I did!

I’ve been using this beauty for months now. Love, love it!

Update on our Air Conditioner Repair

I’ve blogged for a couple of times that we are now ready to prioritize our home renovation now that we are nearing the end of the year. We’ve actually more important things to prioritize during the first few months of the year so now, yes, we are now ready to focus on the repairs, maintenance and cleanup of our home, home appliances and more.

We have so far addressed the problems with the roof (right after the storm). We have spent a couple of weeks addressing it, checking out the problems and the solutions that we want to do. All we have to do (in this aspect) is find a contractor that will do the job. I hope we find a reliable one because this is somehow the most important task in all of our home renovation this year. Second to flooring which we already addressed last year. I was so glad that we were able to find a contractor for the flooring last year that we are hoping to find another good one for the roof.

Next are the appliances that need repair. First is the air conditioner. The Air Conditioner Repair Peoria AZ is the service center I found online. They’ve been in the industry for years now so it’s apt that I consider them in this aspect. They have a couple of different services depending on the client’s needs. They can even adjust depending on the client’s air conditioner too. Now, they don’t only cater repair but they also cater cleaning, which is what we need for ours. There are a couple of air conditioners that don’t actually need repair but needs to totally cleaned. After all, we’ve been using for years now.

I’m so so glad I found Morehart Airconditioning and Heating. Morehart Air Conditioning and Heating is a family owned and operated business in Phoenix, AZ with over 10 years experience in the HVAC industry. Yes 10 years! Perfect company to rely on especially if the things that we value are at stake. With all the expenses that we need to incur for the year, we need to tighten our belts and be mindful of every expense making sure that everything is worth it. This is how I feel about this company. I feel that every penny spent is worth the service that they will provide. With 10 years experience in all makes and models and in offering free second opinions and only provide the kind of service we expect in our own homes. I’m going to check out if they offer services in my country (which I’m hoping they will) because I’ve read testimonials on their website and based from there, I’m sure I’m going to be happy with the services that we get from them.

Now, what’s my first step on this repair? Will check out what more services they offer then contact them as soon as possible. And I’m hoping that, that would be this weekend.
