Who wouldn't want to win $60?

I don't know anyone who would pass on a chance to win $60 and if i did know someone who would, i'd tell him/her "you're crazy!''. With the prices of everything going up each day, EVERYTHING- Gas, Electricity, Food & anything else you can think of, and with minimum wage literally taking the meaning of minimum, $60 won't last for a long time but if your wise enough, you can make every penny of that $60 bucks count and matter.
    So what would i do with an extra $60 bucks in my wallet? Impulse would tell me to spend it all on lotto tickets and hope and pray to win a million! Haha just kiddin'! That would be a waste! What would i really do? Hmmmm,.. Summer, heat, kids that love water and sand, i'd treat my family to another fun-filled day at the beach! Mother's day just around the corner, i'll bring my family to my favorite restaurant, give my husband a few bucks and force him to buy me flowers while i spend the day getting a body ma…

Firmoo Full frame aviator glasses

I love Firmoo and their wide selection of glasses. A month ago i got a pair of brand new sunglasses from Firmoo for free and i also did a review of those said glasses here. Sad to say i don't have those glasses anymore :( They were so comfortable and light that i didn't even feel it slip off my head while  doing backstrokes on the clear blue shores of Batangas! So sad! I will always have fond memories of those glasses and the coolness it once gave me :) But just as the saying goes, if you lose something, better things will come to you. And it did! I won another pair of glasses from Firmoo via Marie Castro's giveaway (Thanks Marie!). Men's full frame Aviator Metal sunglasses. I picked these because i plan on giving them to my husband (and also wear them for myself, aviators are in!)

     The frame of these cool glasses are made out of metal. I was expecting it to be heavy but they aren't. They are just alittle heavier than the plastic glasses i got from them b…

So if i got any readers out there that is willing to spare a minute or so to cast a vote for my son's picture, i'd greatly appreciate it. All you got to do is:

then click click go to app, just allow the application then search Ethan Allen Merced click like below the photo..

Simple as that :) Thanks for taking time to read this post, Have a great day!

Buy Eyeglasses Online: Vision & Fashion the Frugal Way

Press Release: Firmoo Optical Company Limited – Thu, Apr 5, 2012 9:00 AM EDT 

NEW YORK, April 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- A month ago, CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) published a piece of news about purchasing eyeglasses online; a month later, this news has already been commented on by thousands of people. With the rise of purchasing eyeglasses online, more and more eyeglass wearers have begun to focus their attention on it. However, with regard to buying eyewear online, some support it while others still have doubts about it. What has turned numerous eyeglass wearers from traditional brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores to online ones? Firmoo's slogan tells you everything: Vision and Fashion the Frugal Way.

Trivia: What is this?

I caught this little creature swimming around at the beach and caught it, i asked people in the area what it was but they didnt have a clue. It looks like a jellyfish, it's about the size of my pinky. Where's Kuya Kim when you need him?!

Idea's anyone?

My first giveaway winner!

First i would like to thank everyone who joined my contest, Thank you! It has finally came to an end and without further ado i would like to announce the winner:

Sunshine award

Hello all! I was tagged by Mish of LDB and Onesies for the sunshine award, yay! Pardon my ignorance but i honestly don't know what it's about but i still want to say thanks to her, THANK YOU!

Here's what i 'm supposed to do:
* Each tagged person must post seven to ten things about themselves.
* You have to choose and tag 7 people.
* Go to their blogs and tell them you tagged them.
* Have Fun.

So here goes:

1. I Love pizza! Well not every pizza, just the thin crust pizza's from Shakey's! I can eat Shakey's thin crust every single day for the rest of my life and not get tired of it! <3

2. I use to be a hardcore gamer girl! Eversince my addiction started with R.O.S.E. online, i moved from mmorpg to mmorpg striving to be the richest and quickest leveler in game! I used to play from sun up to sun down, but that was then. I stopped playing. Boredom.

3. I love reese's buttercups! Another something i can eat daily for the rest of my life!

4. My greatest dream was…


Contractubex.          This is now one of my favorite products out in the market. It works! I have tried and tested ALOT of products that promise to remove scars but i havent noticed any difference after using them for some time. Then i saw this through online searching, tv ads and figured i should give it a try, no harm in trying. Here in the Philippines, a 10g tube will run you alittle less than 500 pesos. Recommended usage is three  to four times  a day but i usually forget to use it and end up just applying some twice or once a day. After consuming 1 tube of it, some of my scars lightened up and some totally disappeared! That is by applying it just once or twice a day! I haven't noticed any negative effects from using it or any allergic reactions so it must be pretty safe to use. Still got some more scars to remove from being too active as a child so i'll be using this till i get my dream, flawless skin! :) I am so sure about this product and its effectiveness that i'm…

Road trips for food trips

Just some of our unplanned short drives around town to satisfy our food cravings. These are just a few that i found on my desktop, still being a little too lazy to organize my albums saved on it.

Through thick and thin!

Long holiday, scorching summer heat, crowded beaches. Decided to beat the Holy Week rush and postpone our summer trip till after Holy Week. House is tidy, Kids are behaving, what a wonderful day to just relax and reminisce!
      Hmmm, How about a little something about how i met the love of my life, my husband. He was born in Florida, USA. After his dad retired from the Navy they all moved here to the Philippines. He has two brothers and a sister. He grew up in the 80's, the A-Team, Alf, GI Joe, Smurfs, Knight Rider is what was on the tube growing up. No cellphones, No internet, just plain and simple fun as a kid. I was born in La Union, PH. Three brothers (one passed away) and a sister. I grew up in the 90's. Cellphones, Internet and HD TV. Technology gave us fun. A-Team, GI Joe, Smurfs are still on TV, haha cool! So how could two people, who grew up in different generations, find and fall in love with each other? Technology!
       We met thru online chatting around …

Cherish every moment

I really enjoy looking at our pictures on my desktop, and realizes that times flies so fast that my kids are growing up so fast too! Im afraid that someday they will no be longer by my side and have a family of their own. So as time passes by, I'll see to it that im enjoying every moment with them. Here are just some memorable snapshots of my kids with me and  hubby.

Have a blessed Holy Week everyone!
"We ought to fast, and to abstain from all vice, and from all that will lead us into sin, as well as from extravagance and superfluity. We should often visit the churches, and venerate and reverence all ecclesiastics on account of their office, and because they distribute the Sacred Body and Blood of Christ, which they offer in sacrifice, receive themselves, and administer to others. And let everyone know and hold for certain that we cannot be saved except through the sacred Words and the Precious Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, which priests preach, announce, and distribute, and of which they are the sole ministers." -St. Francis of Assisi

Closed: Joyluck's First Giveaway!

The past year has been good to me in terms of online contests and promos. I got tons of nice stuff from different blogs and sponsors, some i haven't even used yet, so i figured i should host a giveaway and let other people enjoy it instead of just letting it sit and collect dust. I would like to give a shout out to each and every blog i won from and thank them for all these beautiful stuff i have been receiving. I'm finally going to host my first ever giveaway in appreciation to every single item i have won in the past, THANK YOU!

      I have decided to start hosting giveaways starting with this one and hopefully will be the start of many more giveaways and promos to come. First on the list is this 88 color palette, tropical shimmer eyeshadow by BH Cosmetics. I won this via a  blog giveaway that was sponsored internationally. This was shipped to me straight from California. This is brand new and has never been used or tested. I only opened up the box to take pictures of it fo…
