The Best Christmas gift...
Dilia is going to make a great big sister....


Christmas and Santa Claus is coming....

I love the Christmas season because I am reminded of all my blessings and the spirit of the season...Good will towards all men...I love shopping so it goes that I love love giving especially to those who are less as fortunate then me...I have participated in Operation Santa aka Dear Santa click here for more info for the second year.  Plus, my mother-in-law who is from Colombia sent gifts to about 60 kids in a small town every year.  I believe in Santa Claus because everyone who participates in giving to those less fortunate are Santa Claus in my eyes.  Plus,  my favorite editorial, is "Yes, Virginia there is a Santa Claus"

"DEAR EDITOR: I am 8 years old.
"Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus.
"Papa says, 'If you see it in THE SUN it's so.'
"Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus?


VIRGINIA, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except [what] they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's, are little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.

Yes, VIRGINIA, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus. It would be as dreary as if there were no VIRGINIAS. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eternal light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.

Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies! You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if they did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.
You may tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, VIRGINIA, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.

No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.


Oh Boy!!!!!

Christmas is fast approaching...I have been figuring out gift for my family and I am a shopaholic...so I love this time a year...my favorites are:

purchasing gift vouchers/gift card via group discount site especially for my sisters...



Cool ride....

Since my beautiful daughter just turn 2 yesterday...I want to get her an awesome gift..I have been eying Tyke Rider http://tykerider.com/ for a little while now after they were featured in coolmompicks.com. I love the design and overall style of Tyke Rider but the bikes were a little pricey for me.  So, I decided to suggest Tyke Rider to all the discount kids sites, as great item.  I don't know if it was my suggestion but  www.zulily.com had them on sale about a month ago.  I immediately purchase the bike for about 50 dollars less...it turn out to a great deal.  My daughter loves her bike.

So, I pledge to continue to support the talent individuals behind handmade children's apparel, toy, and accessory makers

Little bit of fun

I came across The Little Gym during a birthday party back in May.  I decided that my daughter should be more active and learn new skills plus it would be an excuse to get out of the house every Saturday for an hour.  I found a The Little Gym about 5 minutes from our house plus my daughter enjoyed the trial class.  We started going and she was a little shy in the beginning but enjoyed the activities.  She has learned new skills plus she loves playing with other kids.  It is great for me and my husband to spend time with her like that.  I would definitely recommend it.

Fall is coming....

My favorite seasons are spring and fall because the weather and for the clothes.  I can’t hardly for the weather to be cooler than now because of the crazy hot summer this year…My favorite accessories are Oeuf necktie and hats, which are made from 100% Alpaca. Please check out 

Oeuf is my favorite for the following reason…

When we were kids, whenever our parents dropped us off somewhere like school, our grandparents’ house for the weekend or even summer camp, they always gave us a hug and a kiss and told us to “be good!” as they waved goodbye.

As kids we’re very literal and knew this meant…don’t cut your sister’s hair, don’t glue yourself to the wall, don’t go running off into the woods with nothing but your underwear and a toothbrush. At the time, it was mostly about good behavior.

Now as parents, we realize there is a whole other level of meaning when we kiss them goodbye and tell them to be good. We know we’re really telling them to be good people. Do the right thing. Make us proud. Be the kind of people we hope to be. As Oeuf, we have the chance to elevate this notion once again and be a good company. When we say Be Good, we mean:

Be good designers.
Simple, clean, intuitive products that are easy and safe to use; made with quality craftsmanship that will last from generation to generation; designed with a European sensibility that is fun and stylish reflecting the needs and lifestyle of today’s modern families.

Be good people.
Respect the people who work with us and treat them fairly whether employees, artisans, retailers or consumers. Provide a safe and supportive working environment that allows working families to live and thrive in the United States, Europe and abroad. Honor cultural traditions, diversity and local values. Pay people living wages that enable them to live healthy fulfilling lives and send their own children to school.

Be good to the planet.
Use natural, renewable, recyclable materials that emphasize conservation and lead to environmentally sound products. Employ eco-conscious manufacturing processes that promote low emissions and sustainability.

Be Good is not just something we say-- its something we mean. As parents, we want our children to inherit a world that is better than we found it. As Oeuf, we have the ability to make that happen.


Be Good.


Hair Style

I absolutely love hair clips, barrettes and headbands especially for my daughter.  My daughter always had hair and being a shopaholic, I discovered the most adorable hair clips, barrettes and headbands sellers.  Sweet Harper is one of my top faves http://www.etsy.com/shop/SweetHarper because Tracy is super sweet.  My other personal faves are Taia http://sweettaia.com/ and Ribbies http://www.ribbiesclippies.com/ because of the color, style and general cuteness of the clips.
