Today couldn’t have been more perfect! <3 My hunny gave me roses. Yes, ROSES! ;) For no occasion.. well it was our civil wedding anniv a couple of days back, but we don’t really celebrate it. Still, what a sweet gesture! <3
Then I had brunch with 2 lovely ladies in Bizu! I could get used to this lifestyle.. ladies who brunch, hahaha! ;))

After a decent amount of pleasantries & juicy gossip, we went on an impromptu field trip to a christmas decor shop. I love how Ivy always gives me new learning experiences haha! :)) I’ve been wanting to decorate the outside of our home & she brought me to this secret place hidden somewhere in BF. Sorry, but for the life of me I could never take you there because we will both get lost! But it’s a delightful place selling very inexpensive christmas decors. Perfect for someone on a budget like me! :)
|Mr. Santa’s Village Shop
Hey, they are going to be in the St. James bazaar this weekend!
Try to catch them there.
|The discounted price (if you order straight form their factory) is the one on the left.|
|The “before” Santa haha. With real boots – cool! ;))|
|Face painting ;) ..|
|The mold for santa’s face.|
|Happy mommies with the very friendly factory owner, Petite.|
I didn’t get any of the available stocks, instead I got made-to-order products coz I like to feel that I’m special, hahaha! I got the climbing dwarfs.. 7 of them!! (soooo cute!!!) & a huge gingerbread man/candy cane wreath. And all for 2.5k! What a steal, right? All thanks to my dearest Ivy! <3
|Huge wreath for our gate. I wanted sana bigger pa talagabut I got kuripot & stuck to my 1k budget! :P
I specifically asked for it to be halved into 2 so it can be separated when the gate opens.
|Cute gingerbread man & candy cane detail.
I’m borloloy queen, so I’ll definitely add more ornaments to this wreath haha! ;)
|My 7 climbing elves! <3
Petite is so nice. I requested for different outfits for my elves & she immediately obliged.
If you do get from her, don’t be shy to customize your order.
She’s very nice & accommodating.
|Close-up of my elves! :)
Nicer sana if with santa diba? But I got kuripot again hahaha! ;P
Oh, and I got something special today too for my beautiful ate. We rushed to Makati as soon as she got home from school for this..
|I love seeing you happy ate! <3|
She’s been having so much heartaches lately that I just want to spoil her a bit… and it’s an early graduation gift na rin coz she’s been really really good with her grades –saka I know for a fact that she’ll get into her choice of school.
PLUS!!! I finally finished my christmas shopping today for my 3 kids. My wallet has been RAPED!!! ;P
Like I said, a perfect day! <3
