I bought 2 sets of leggings, 2 sets of tights and 2 socks. Including the tax, I only paid $5.30! I used my gift card for this purchase and I was glad to know that I still have $17.11 left on my GC.

This post brought to you by Scotts®. All opinions are 100% mine.
Gardening is a hobby that is not just good for your health as it is a good way to sweat your impurities but it is also an activity that is good for family bonding too. Planting some vegetables and flowers has been a fun activity for the whole family. My little girl is enjoying it as much as we do. Now, she loves to water them and look at our plants. She is awaiting for our tomatoes to bear fruits. I can say that my daughter is still stylish even when gardening. She wear her cute little Dora gardening gloves. She has little shovel and other gardening tools in her gardening bag. She looks so cute and ready to do some work.
Every year, we try to do something new in our garden. This year, we will try the Expand ‘n Gro™ Planting Mix. This is made of all-natural ingredients. This product has absorbent coir fibers which will retain up to 50% moisture. Expand 'n Gro Planting Mix will transform any soil into an ideal growing environment whether it is in ground or in pots. Because it is specially formulated, it will help get great results and higher yields.
Anyway, check the video above on how this Planting Mix becomes different from any other. Check their website for more information too. And, lastly comment in this blog post and you might can win a sample of the product mentioned.
Summer cannot come soon enough, especially for designers unleashing bold prints and plenty of color to brighten our days along with the sunshine.† The coming season brings flare and drama, encouraging fearlessness in more than one trend. If your closet ebbs and flows with the trends and you desire a say in what everyone is wearing, study fashion design and have a hand in every season's list of top styles.† For now, we see what designers have envisioned us in during the coming season.
Letís start with what is cheering us up this year.† Apple red, turquoise, and lime are just a few of the colors splashing the runways and making us smile.† Above all, you cannot go wrong by stepping out in yellow.† Be it soft, bright, banana, or lemon curd, dash your look with yellow and you will be sure to shine.† And gone are the dark days of silver and greyóturn to gold to warm up your wardrobe and glamorize your ensemble.
Take those colors and lift your mood more when daring to print.† Be bold in paisley with a sprinkle of hot pink or a dip into jewel tones according to Stella McCartney and JW Anderson.† Paisley, of course, goes perfectly with more paisley.† Mismatched swirls of pattern are on the flowing skirts of Emilio Pucci.† Other patterns showing this season include grids and checkers striking a geometric chord at the hands of Christian Dior and Marios Schwab.
Flora and Fauna
When finding the right prints, be on the lookout for a bouquet of flowers or leopard vying for your attention.† Floral patterns are blooming everywhere and in every color, unafraid to blanket your wardrobe.† Animal prints are also craving warmer weather, from spotted gowns to cocktail dresses helping you roar into the evening.† Casual khaki paired with classic white or daring techno touches complete the safari ensemble. The African influence continues to be pervasive as raffia, tribal art, and intricate beading combine with other traditional allusions on the runway.†
If you prefer, dial down the daring and instead lighten up with pastels and lace this season.† Louis Vuitton and Chanel softened the runway with pieces bathed in sherbet purples, blues, and pinks to usher in the summer breeze.† When it comes to lace, Valentino and Miu Miu keep you cool and fashionable.† †Head-to-toe lace in every color creates a complete outfit worthy of Valentinoís vision for this summerís style.
Opt for colorless in classic white according to Diane Von Furstenberg and Stella McCartney.† Crisp lines and clean, fresh cotton prepare you perfectly for your sunny brunch whereas Louis Vuitton and Dolce&Gabbanna prefer lace and sheer silks before Labor Day.†
Current cultural happenings are also making their mark on style these days.† As The Great Gatsby is set to release this year, the roaring 20ís are showing up in 2012 by way of flapper dresses, drop waists by Versus and tasseled trims by Gucci.† Daisy Buchanan would be proud of Marchesaís lavish beading and Ralph Laurenís generosity with ostrich feathers that adorn this glamorous silhouette.†
However, lest we not forget about Fifties Americana led by Prada and Marc Jacobs. †Stars, and stripes, patchwork and leather summon the cowgirl in all of us while prim plaids and preppy pastels paired with catís eye sunglasses evoke ìretro Americana.î† Back in the present, the 2012 London Olympics has inspired Victoria Bekham, DKNY, and Marc Jacobs to dress the athlete in all of us.† Sporty is stylish in performance fabrics and feminine lines of orange, royal blue, and bright green.†
Taking a look around the fashion blogging world, we find new statements preparing us for warmer weather and fun in the sun. No matter the era, there is plenty to be excited about when preparing your closet for the coming summer.† Look forward to days full of life and light as the clouds part for the trends to dazzle.

I went to see our Primary Care Physician for some skin problems and hair loss. Her office scheduled me an appointment with a dermatologist. I am scheduled to see her next month. She referred me to Inverness Dermatology & Laser.
Since this is all about skin problems, I decided to post this here in my beauty blog. Will update ya'll when I am done seeing the dermatologist.

Microfiber is an invention that has made a big difference in the lives of those with allergies. Microfiber products are lighter, more comfortable, long lasting, breathable and even easier to clean. And it doesn’t come with a high price tag either. These are just few of the reasons why I purchased the product above.
I was just lucky enough to catch a good deal at www.footasylum.com. They have a wide range of shoes, sneakers, caps, jackets and other sportswear for everyone. I have seen some good pairs which will be just right for my husband. When it comes to husband's clothes, shoes and other accessories, he lets me shop for him. Anyway, if you want to save the next time you shop, foot asylum is just the perfect online store for all your shoe and sportswear needs! Glad I found it!

De-cluttering her room is somehow hard to do because she always gets new things. I guess that having plenty of storage bins will be a great help to organize her room.
They say that gold jewelries are great investments. I wonder if those who like jewelries also invests on gold coins? If they do, I am sure they have heard about ngc gold eagle. Ever heard of this? If you haven't and you are interested about gold, you better check it out. Their website is very informative.

Coach purses are really popular. I have my share of coach purses thanks to my sponsor. The regular price of a coach purse is $300 or more. Oftentimes, they mark their prices down especially if you buy them at their factory outlet. But for a regular price, I surely can't afford one of these. When they are on sale, the price can be affordable.
So who wants one?

With this option, I can choose whatever I want to be in a piece or in a set like for earrings or a necklace. I can also opt for the size that I want. This is really a clever scheme because I can decide on the budget and cost for the jewelry I want. This website is also perfect for gift givers. I believe that giving someone a customized jewelry is something more special and more meaningful.
Although buying and splurging for jewelry and other things for me is not a priority, having one would most definitely make me happy. If budget permits, I would love to have good looking jewelries every now and then. It is not all the time that I buy a necklace or bracelet, but for all the hard work, I guess we all moms deserve to have some beautiful pieces of jewelry, right?
Being a homemaker means that I also have to be frugal and penny-wise. So as much as possible, I make sure that I stick to our weekly or monthly budget and don’t go overboard. Being economical and practical nowadays does not also mean that quality has to sacrifice. Of course, I still look for those brands and products that would surely last long and endure and if there are coupons and discounts, I would definitely dive for it. Good deals are sometimes hard to find and with all the hard work I do, I guess I deserve something to look forward to.

Some days I wake up and wonder how I got so lucky. I fell in love with a wonderful man, who takes such good care of me. Before I met him I wasn’t sure that I would ever get married. I dated a string of losers, and had just about lost hope. Now that I am married, my attitude has changed, and I know there is hope out there for everyone. If I can find someone, then anyone can. Even though I don’t work, and I stay home and take care of the kids, my husband still helps me out around the house. It’s so nice of him to be considerate and realize that being at home with kids is a lot of work. We have talked about changing our satellite TV package for a while, and I was supposed to take care of it. I got so overwhelmed with the kids that my husband surprised me by going to http://www.directstartv.com/ and doing it himself. Sometimes I feel bad that he does so much, but instead of feeling guilty, I just count my lucky stars.
