My 2nd year in the US

I just remember that today is my second year living in this country. Oh how time flies so fast! It seems like yesterday when I first stepped on the land of PDX. Looking back, we arrived past 8 in the morning. I still remember that day when hubby and I got out from the ramp of the airport  to ride a shuttle bus and  will take us to other building. The temperature was 42degrees outside and I was wearing 3 layers of clothes with my open-toe wedge shoes. Hubby was walking too fast carrying our luggage while I myself having a hard time from the cold environment. I was freezing! I felt like somebody threw me inside the fridge (lol).

Dive into the season's sexiest swimwear

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Express for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Its spring time everyone! This just means goodbye to cold and freezing weather. No more layering clothes, thick coats and socks, closed toe shoes/boots, warm and fuzzy scarves, etc. Now its time to showoff your colorful, flowery and fresh spring collections.

 Express Swimsuit
 I believe that every girl deserves to have a pair of swimwear regardless of any  sizes and shape. As long as you are comfortable of what you're wearing and you have that confidence. I am browsing online because I am in search for women's swimwear . To tell you honestly, I never own nor wear any two piece swimwear  in my entire life (lol). This time, I am going to get one and I found this striped bandeau bikini at Express store. They have plenty of newest arrivals on  their spring 2011 and  swim collections that you can choose.  Since spring is still a little bit chilly, I am going to have this for summer time where the days are so hot and warm. Hubby and I always go swimming during summertime. So this is perfect for me :).

I also found out  that if you sign up for Express e-mail , you'll get a chance to win one of ten $200 Express Gift Cards. I provided the link for you guys for you to sign up  and to know the sweepstakes rules . Good luck!

Its spring time!

It is another season of the year and I am so anxious to say bye bye to chilly weather and embrace the warmer side. Today is the official day of spring! Can't wait to do fun  and outside adventures. So I listed  the following things that comes in my mind when I hear the word "spring" :

Time for the garden/yard work
Time for the first grass cutting
Time to prune your plants
Time for Easter egg hunts
Easter
BBQ's
Rainbows of flowers
Warmer Weather
Spring Break
Flowers in Bloom
Scents of different Flowers 

Flowery and colorful dresses
The Smell of Fresh Cut Grass

Cherry Blossoms 
Daylight savings time

My Prayers for Japan

I guess everyone knows that Japan is having this big crisis going on because of the 8.9 earthquake and massive tsunami happened last March 11th  of this year.  This huge tsunami swamps several coastal communities, swept homes and cars, burned buildings, etc. Thousands of people were homeless and suffering from hunger. It really leaves a major damage to the country. And here comes this life threatening nuclear plant.

Today, somebody on my Facebook friends shared some link/video. A news of what still happening in Japan. As I watched the video, I was teary eyed and goosebumps is in my entire body. My heart was broken watching the sadness and grief from their faces. People lost their loved ones and everything. I can't imagine myself having this kind of nightmare I may call it. I feel their lost and pain. My prayers to each and everyone who are affected by this tragedy. Lord, heal our land, Father heal our land and please keep us away from danger, protect us always and  please turn our nation back to you. 
Just
Always
Pray
At
Night...not just at night but anytime and anywhere. (Its the best way that we can do).

Jeans under $5 bucks!

Yes you heard it right! As what I had mention on my previous post the other day, hubby and I went to Target to accompany a friend that want something from the store. Apparently, when we walked in inside, I saw this big sign 30%, 50% and 70% off on clearance sale. So I jump ahead and stuck in there for couple minutes to see if I can find something that I like.

I found this Mossimo junior bootcut jeans in a medium tint wash and Mossimo  dark wash jeggings which I only paid $4.98 each. Original price was $19.99 and the other one was $24.99. Pretty steal huh? That is why I always get excited every time I always see something on sale. I really love it since it fits on me so well and so comfy to wear :).

A dollar make up

Hubby and I went to Target yesterday and wallah! They have 50%-70% off Clearance sale going on clothes. So I look around while hubby and one of our friend went to kitchen department to find something they're looking for. 

Aside from that, I also checked the cosmetics section and bought make up from e.l.f. cosmetics.  I read some good reviews by this inexpensive brand and I wanna try it. So I got liquid eye liner(eyes), a regular & waterproof mascara duo(eyes), wet gloss lash and brow clear mascara (eyes), tone correcting concealer (face), hypershine lipgloss (lips) and an eyelash curler. Each only cost a dollar and I paid a total of  $6.00. I also found some nice make up brushes but I didn't got it since I already bought a make up brush set  (as seen on the photo) from Ebay.
