MSE Movado Bag a Disappointment

A bag is one of the most essential things to carry for most women; this is where we keep personal things like wallet, makeup-kit and other things that are deemed essential to us.

When we travel to the town where my father is currently working, normally I used a backpack to keep my camera, bag, towel and other personal items. It was a bit bigger so when we happened to visit Natasha/MSE shopping outlet, my mother suggested I should buy a smaller bag for my camera so it won’t get broken. At first I was a bit hesitated because I didn’t like the bag material, once I had a bag made of man-made leather on my grade school years and it break apart in the sleeves but since I love the color of the bag I ended up getting it. It was not a cash basis; it is one month to pay. I took it because I have thought maybe if I only put lighter things inside the bag it won’t easily break apart.

MSE Movado Bag

The MSE Movado bag is bright in color, aqua to be précised. It is very modern and sassy, and eye catcher with its cute design.  It is small on size of 12” x 5 ¼” x12” and as I have mentioned the material is man-made leather and cost of Php725 or $16.11.

The next weekend we went out of town I decided to use, it was very comfortable to carry with only lighter things inside and as expected we just wander around a bit to take some photos and use the internet and when we returned to my father’s workplace while waiting, I have noticed that the bag is breaking apart already. I felt disappointed knowing it was newly bought and I have just used it for the first time.  I guess, as expected the bag made on man-made leather is not durable, the quality is not that strong.

Helpful Tips for Purchasing Men’s Wedding Bands

In the past, the only consideration to be made when purchasing a men’s wedding band was the size. The ring, which was typically a thin band featuring yellow gold, was all that was needed. However, today, there are many more options and considerations to make. From custom stone-encrusted rings to mens black wedding bands, there are endless options. Some tips to help you choose the right one for your fiancée are highlighted here.


While the women’s ring is likely going to cost more, there are men’s wedding bands offered at all price points today. This means it is a good idea to establish a budget ahead of time. This budget will help ensure that no overspending takes place. Take some time to ensure the price is right prior to making a purchase.

Match or No Match?

Another important consideration is whether or not the men’s band should match the women’s. Some people want to have wedding bands that match, while others don’t. This is a decision that is totally based on preference and one that should be considered carefully in order to ensure the right bands are purchased.

Comfortable and Durable

Men are notorious for being rough on jewelry. This means that the ring purchased needs to be durable, while being comfortable. This will help to ensure it can stand up to the daily wear and tear it will be exposed to. There are some golds and metals that are softer than others, which means they may be damaged more easily. Take some time to ensure the right ring is purchased for the person based on the wear and tear it will be exposed to.

Do some Research

While there are a number of things to consider when purchasing a ring, it is essential that you do plenty of research ahead of time. This will help ensure that you know where to shop and where to find a ring that fits in your particular budget. Failure to research the options may result in purchasing a sub-par ring that no one really wants.

More information can be found by visiting the Northwood website. Here couples can browse a number of different men’s ring options until they find the one that is right for them. Doing this will pay off in the long run and help ensure the right ring is purchased for the person. Don’t rush into a decision since this can result in too much being spent or the wrong type of ring being purchased.

Visa Wallet from MSE

Shopping is really one of the best thing to do when your depressed and sad, it makes you happy and forget things in an instant but afterwards you are back in being depressed and it is much worst because you end up broke and penniless. I am not feeling well since these past few months because of personal reasons, my life was hit by a big turbulence and there is no way up, only to go down.

Visa Wallet from MSE

Well, the other day I feed my depression of material things; I bought myself some useless things. I bought wants and not needs. One of the thing I recently bought is a wallet; it was seven years ago since I bought a new wallet, my old wallet was already old and torn.

The wallet was from MSE (Marikina Shoe Exchange) and was a bit smaller compare to my old long wallet. I choose a smaller one so I can easily keep it on my small bag and bring it with me, unlike my old wallet it was quite long to carry.

Visa Wallet

Visa wallet is smaller with the size of 6 ¼” x 3 ½”, it is made of man-made leader. The outside color is Taupe while the inside is dark pink which is a perfect color combination making it chic and sassy. It has 3 slots for card, picture, a purse which is perfect for coins and four compartments for bills. Since it is not genuine leather it is cheap for the price of Php275 or about $6.11. I immediately moved the cards from my old wallet to the new one; I just choose the important ones since it has only 3 slots, perfect for my postal ID and two bank cards, aside from the cards I moved the two crispy small bills, they are part of my souvenir bills so even my wallet has no money in it at least it is not that empty, isn’t it?

Best Kitchen Tools and Cooking Gadgets

Tools of the Trade

Food competition reality shows are big audience draws on television. Every day viewers can share enthusiasm with contestants vying to win a cupcake war, develop delicious dishes with secret ingredients, and chefs trying to become the last one standing to reach the top. A common thread in all shows is the use of top-notch culinary tools and equipment, just what you need for your kitchen.

Only the Finest

As you watch contestants race to get their food cooking, you’ll notice knives cut onions like they were butter, pots and pans heat food quickly and uniformly, and every range and every oven has precise temperature controls. Each equipment type is manufactured with certain cooking methods in mind. For instance, ovens aren’t merely ovens. Bake ovens are designed to handle multiple volumes of baked goods. Convection ovens are prized for their ability to cook just about anything with even, consistent results. Pizza ovens are designed to produce the crispy, chewy crust unrivaled by any ordinary home oven.

Time Savers

Chefs don’t want to spend more time than they have to preparing a meal. Good quality tools save time. For example, anyone who’s tried to hack through fruits and vegetables with a dull knife, is well aware of how much time can be saved with quality knives. Besides sharpness, balance, blade and handle forged as a single piece, and ergonomic grips are all factors in choosing a knife that delivers optimal performance whether it’s a paring knife, cook’s knife or Nakari knife.


Once food has been prepared and served, it’s time for cleaning utensils and equipment. Commercial dishwashers get your tools sparkling and ready for the next round. Under counter, conveyor, and front door models are available. Whatever your preference, you will find one for your needs.

You won’t find cut rate equipment used on any cooking reality show. Restaurant quality spatulas flip food in high grade stainless steel sauté pans that repose on commercial range burners. The equipment is a testament to the old idiom that you can do anything with the right tools. Regardless if the saying is 100% accurate or not, quality tools of the trade make cooking easier and more fun. Such restaurant supply online stores as Mission Restaurant Supply carry the equipment that makes your kitchen into a reality show all your own.

A Thing for Coffee

Coffee as a beverage had been around for thousands of years before it reached the New World. Had the British not caused tea costs to skyrocket in the 18th century, coffee may not have such a prominent place at breakfast tables around the world or made its way to cultivation in the warm climates of South America. Brazil emerged as the world’s leader in coffee bean production in the mid-1900s. Consumers claim taste is the most important factor when choosing their coffee whether in retail markets or dining establishments.

By Any Other Name

From its humble beginnings, so various legends go, as an accidentally roasted berry boiled in water, coffee has become the world’s most widely consumed beverage. Furthermore, asking for coffee has evolved into quite a science. Pseudonyms for coffee began as far back as its first exports from the port city of Mocha. Likewise, the island of Java lent its name to a synonym for coffee. The typical phrase, “cup of joe” in American slang may well be a derivation of the slang term, jamoke, which is a combination Java and Mocha. At one time, these two locations were considered as best coffee producers in the world.

Coffee Evolution

Espresso is a popular way Europeans drink their coffee. To brew it, high pressured water is forced through finely ground coffee that has been tightly packed into a very fine sieve. Special tools called espresso tampers are used to compact the coffee so no water “runs” too quickly through the grounds. Espresso is ordered by the standard 1-once shot, or as a variation of the shot. A ristretto, or short shot, is the first 3/4-ounce of an espresso, A lungo, or long shot, is a shot and a half, and a double shot is, of course, 2 ounces. It wasn’t long before sugar and dairy products were introduced into the inky black elixir. Espresso is the starter for many types of sophisticated coffee drinks, which have morphed into an ordering art:

  • Latte- a shot of espresso mixed with a cup of steamed milk, and then topped with foamed milk.
  • Machiatto- a shot of espresso topped with a layer of foamed milk.
  • Cappuccino- a shot of espresso topped with steamed milk.

    Across the globe, we do indeed enjoy our coffee in all its blends and creations.

Shopping for Second Hand Clothes

Online shopping with my own money is one of the things I have enjoyed the most but aside from it I also enjoyed shopping for second hand clothes, it all started when my mother brought me to a second hand shop when I am in need of shorts to wear at home. I have gained a lot of weight after living in abroad for many years and I can’t find the shorts I like for my size so we end up in the said shop.

Shopping for second hand clothes was big no for me before not just because they  have been wore by other people but because I find it embarrassing buying  clothes worn by other people.


Well, that was the old time.  Today, shopping for second hand clothes excites me a lot, finding and buying clothes that are good as new excites me and make me proud of buying them. I felt like I won a contest for able to buy them before other people could see them.

The other day, I immediately saw SALE sign in the second hand clothes shop we frequently visit. Blouses are on sale for as low as Php10.00 ($0.22); it was really a good deal so before we do our purpose in town we dropped by at the shop and sweat ourselves looking for the clothes that will fit us. I am really in need of new clothes since the clothes I have previously bought are already too big for me, yeah right I lose a lot of weight in these past few months not just because of diet but because of personal problem as well.

Clothes Surplus Shop

We ended up buying a lot of blouses and shirts since they are pretty cheap, most of the clothes I bought are in dark color like black and dark blue, perfect for my not so happy feeling!

Oh well, losing weight is expensive not because of buying diet supplements just to lose some weight but because of buying new clothes to wear when you lose weight. Some of the clothes those are already too big for me to wear end up to my mother, grandmother and neighbour.

Shopping for Vitamins at Lazada

Online shopping is one of the things I enjoy the most, searching for coupon codes and getting discounts as well as waiting for the things I bought online brought an excitement to me. It was been a long time since I do online shopping, that was the time I am still in Korea but afterwards never done it anymore.

Vitamin C and Calcium

The other day, I decided to look for vitamins online since the vitamins I brought home is already empty and they can’t be found in the town.  I successfully found them at Lazada PH in cheaper amount than the other online shops, so I decided to add them to my cart but when I was given a special coupon to use, I checkout and ordered them as cash on delivery.

Lazada is an online shopping portal in Philippines and I have been trusting Lazada since the day of successful deliveries of the item I have ordered online.  When they first launched their shopping portal, I was one of the bloggers who received a discount coupon enable to buy an item I like at their website in exchange of honest review.

Sleep Well with Comfy Pajamas

What better way to relax than to sleep? Indeed, sleeping is the best way to provide ourselves with ultimate relaxation. It helps us to replenish the energy that we consume as the hurdled through the day. It also helps the body recover from stress and anxiety that confront us every day.

But sometimes, due to our different endeavors in life like work and school, we tend to set aside opportunities to take rest and sleep. As much as we want to hit the bed early and have sufficient amount of rest, we sometimes stay up late to finish school requirements or do accomplish office reports that are due the next day.

But this is not a good practice. Lack of sleep poses threat to our health. Headache is just one of the common ailments that arise from lack of sleep. It also affects our mood and cognitive abilities hence we become cranky and temperamental when we don’t have enough sleep. Ultimately, lack of sleep lowers our immune system, thus increasing our risk to sicknesses and diseases.

Sleeping should be a prime concern for everybody. We should always make time to sleep so that we maintain our mental and physical wellness.

One way to encourage ourselves to have enough sleep daily is to buy ourselves with comfortable sleep wears and pajamas. Some people even pamper themselves by getting themselves with creative and colorful pajamas. There are also footed and hooded PJS  which is ideal especially for cold seasons. Some may opt for pajamas printed with their favorite cartoon characters like Spiderman and even Angry Birds!

Have a good night rest with these exciting pajamas. You can have them from your favorite stores near you. Some apparel stores have put up online shops where you can choose and pick the pajamas you want. The online shops are complete with items’ prices and reviews to help you decide better on what design you should be taking.
