Although her Bohemian Rhapsody performance did not impressed much the American Idol Judges, she was able to impressed the three judges with her second performance “Dance with My Father” originally sung by Luther Vandross. It was Jessica’s ability to connect the emotions to her audience that won over the heart of Jenifer Lopez. According to Lopez, it was the beautiful version she ever heard. Steven Tyler on the other hand compared the performance to that of late Whitney Houston while Randy Jackson was amazed with Sanchez’s talent noting Sanchez’s performance as flawless “Now you're making that connection. Every time you get up and sing, you know what's wrong with it? Absolutely nothing!" The American Idol Top 6 performer will soon become Top 5 as they will face elimination on Thursday. So vote for your favourite Idol. As for me, I will definitely vote for Jessica Sanchez!
To date, interior works for our tiny home is still in progress and I am still in the process of choosing the items that needs to be installed. Recently, I have been browsing IKEA’s website searching for the perfect lighting for the living and dining areas as well as the bedrooms. Oh by the way, I love everything in IKEA. How I wish we have IKEA show room here in Manila. I have to give two thumbs up to IKEA Malaysia’s online shop for bringing me closer to modern lighting designs and of course for the convenient window shopping. Hubby will be home in a few weeks time so I had to pick my choice so he could buy the item and bring it home. And after carefully dredging their products, I have chosen the lighting below. I wanted to go for a chandelier for the living area, but with only a small space (more or less 15 square meters), more likely the living area will look too stiff with a chandelier on the ceiling. So I opted for the “pult ceiling lamp” with a steel base plate and a frosted glass shade which will give a glare-free light. On the

Having a big bump on my third trimester makes me impound at home. As my bump gets bigger and heavier I find it tiring walking even for just a short hour.

Recently, I have been thinking of dressing up my new blog since it looks plain and boring. The way I see it, no one will take note of a plain looking boring blog right? So dressing up your blog is something that a blogger should also take into account. When I started blogging, I use free themes that were available in my chosen platform. And as I keep exploring the blogosphere I learned how to customize my blog’s theme. So if you are up to dressing your blog on your own, learn how to customize your theme. A simple tweak on the header and customizing the background and font colours can create a marvellous impression. Although not all blogger can come up with a good header design there are good quality image online which you can use for free that will help you create better header design. Or if you have time learning photoshop and other image editing software that would be an advantage especially if you are up into learning web designing.However, if you have the budget and can afford to hire a web designer who creates unique and beautiful website templates according to your liking, there are lots
It was “crazy” according to Jennifer Lopez as they (the judges, Randy Jackson & Steven Styler) blitz the American Idol stage. It was not only the judges who were shocked by the voting result of last night’s American Idol elimination but also the entire studio audience. After her top performance, Jessica Sanchez got the lowest votes among the bottom three thus eliminating her from the contest. But the judges activated their “one save” power to let Jessica Sanchez remain in the contest hence the supposedly top 6 is still top 7 as of this moment. According to Randy Jackson, Jessica is one of the best singer in America, he even pleaded to the entire America to vote for the best. Does this mean there are flaws with the way Americans choose which Idol they want to save? Or perhaps this is a call to Idol’s production to not just use “America’s votes” as basis in choosing new American Idol. It was an incredible and perhaps unforgettable scene that ever happened at the Idol’s stage. Jessica Sanchez is the youngest and one of the top performer in the eleventh season of the No. 1 US TV singing contest. Born to Mexican
I’m not really a fun of sunglasses but recently I suddenly had a fondness with sun glasses in fact I just added a new butterfly sunglass to my collection this summer. The timing is perfect since its already summer where sunglasses is undoubtedly a must have as it help us protect our eyes from the harmful UV rays. Few weeks after acquiring a new butterfly sunglass, I am now going crazy with aviator; in fact my sister and I went for window shopping for aviator sunglasses yesterday. I was actually hesitant to wear an aviator before but now, I wanted to give it a try. Perhaps it’s about time to take myself out of my comfort zone and will try new fashion sense this year. After the window shopping, I tried checking sunglasses online since I have the access to the internet most of the time. And after browsing several websites, I found this aviator by Warby Parker called Griffin. It’s a stylish sunglass which is a fusion of classic and modern design which is perfect for those fashion aficionados. It comes in two fashionable frames and includes a polarized lens for only $95. Ummmhhh...Looks like I found the perfect
I am nearly approaching my due date and in preparation, I have started to buy basic stuffs for our baby. I wasn’t able to keep those stuffs when we had our eldest as I hand them down to my cousin who gave birth few months after I gave birth to my eldest. I was able to catch the Baby Company Sale at SM Department store last month so I was able to save a few pennies. With our first son, most of the basic stuff we need was sponsored by our family and relatives so we didn’t spend too much money for it. I love shopping for the little ones nowadays, I seldom buy something for myself now unless its very important.There are few more stuff I need to buy I hope to have them before the end of this month. See you soon baby!
In a world full of uncertainties, it is a wise idea to invest in something that will give you good profit. Our family have experienced the knock on effect of the recent global economic crisis and before it strikes us again, we are thinking of a way to spare us from another possible financial crisis in the future. This is where our thoughts of investing our money popped out. Aside from the property that we recently acquired, husband and I have been thinking of another investment that will give us good profit. Why it is wise to invest your money? The very reason why we invest our money is to save something for our future. I’m sure you don’t wanna experience the tremor of being moneyless so it’s good to have resources in time of dire need. Moreover, investing your money in a proper way will gain revenue higher than what you have invested. In that way, your money grows and will give you a lot of savings. There are many ways to invest your money; property, stocks, forex trading, mutual funds are just few among many investment opportunities nowadays. You can also invest your money by starting a small
To quench the heat this summer most of us would douse ourselves into beach or swimming pools. And just as the heat goes on this summer, we have to indulge the little one with water by allowing him to play with water in the swimming pool. Recently we let him swim again. It’s good having swimming pool in our community as we could douse ourselves anytime we want. This was not his first swimming experience; rather it’s his first time to swim with a lifebuoy. I bought this red car lifebuoy at toysRus for only PhP200.00. We were glad to see him enjoying the ride. He keeps on paddling his feet and keep on smiling perhaps in excitement. We didn’t see traces of fear while he was riding his red car lifebuoy. Had it not rained, he would have enjoyed it more! Anyways, well just take him for a swim next time. My entry for RedHot Thursday.
There are couples of things that I and my husband have in common. One of those is our love for photography. Originally, it was him who first showed interest in photography. As for me, I was not interested at all but having been tagged in several photo shoot, I suddenly developed an interest in photography. Who would have thought that after a few months of self study I found myself overpowering my husband when it comes to photography. Since we only have one DSLR, it was under my hands where you can find our DSLR most of the time. It has been years being hooked in this hobby yet the learning pace for me and hubby does not fetter. Its fun learning photography and as you learn, you will definitely fall in love with it and the more you fall in love the more you’ll ask for more; more gadgets, more knowledge and more photo shoots. For some people, photography is morethan just a hobby. Some of them are shooting for a living which somehow crossed my mind as far as business is concerned. As long as you have the proper gadgets, knowledge and skills you can earn extra income
With the fervent heat of sun this summer definitely sunglasses is a must have so we could protect our eyes from the harmful UV rays. This summer 2012, a new sunglass has been added to my collection. The mail man delivered it to our doorstep yesterday afternoon. I am so glad to get hold of a gorgeous sunglass from Firmoo. It’s a full framed wrap around sunglasses made of quality materials which fits my face impeccably. And because it fits my face well, I will surely get 100% eye protection against the harmful UV rays. I love the riveting style, which is perfect for fashion hearted people. Another thing which I love the most is the color of the frame. I used to have black and brown frames; I must say the frame color is unique and engrossing which matches the decorative pattern of the glasses arms. I just love it! Thank you Firmoo for this gorgeous and sexy eye wear!
