Fashionable, even in my Dreams

This week I have received more invitations to social events that I have to put on my already busy calendar.  I might not know what to bring to the baby shower or the Girl’s Night Out, but I do know where I’ll shop for the new clothes I intend to buy because I’ll search Groupon first, then head over to the Barney’s site.  I go to Groupon to start all my shopping because I love the variety of coupon deals and special codes they list on their site.  When I shop Barney’s, I know I’m going to find something that is just my style.  I shop Groupon so I can get it for less.

I’m very happy about the upcoming wedding and can’t wait for the big day to arrive.  I’ve already decided on the color I’m going to wear and how I’ll style my hair.  But I haven’t found the dress.  Barney’s has an incredible selection of spring and summer looks that will be perfect for any occasion.  And they even offer deep discounts of up to 75% of new inventory.  Sometimes I just browse the website looking for inspiration.  I imagine where I’d wear all the beautiful clothes I see on the pages, and imagine myself among the fun and interesting looking people I see profiled in the stories they post.

In my mind, my wedding would take place at New York’s City Hall.  I just love the iconic architecture of that building.  My dress would be from Barney’s and so would the dresses of the other women in the bridal party.  We’d all show up together, we’d search through the racks of dresses until we all found something perfect.   Then we’d meet up with the groom for the ceremony.  Since the wedding is going to take place so close to the Brooklyn Bridge, we’d walk from City Hall to the foot of the bridge and take photos.  The area looks really industrial around there and my soft Evangeline linen-silk one shoulder dress would really stand out in the pictures.  I’d wear a stacked heel by Prada, I’d wear fresh flowers in my hair which would be pulled back and topped with a birdcage bridal veil with just a wisp of lace.  It would be lovely and simple.  But most of all, it would all be so affordable because I’d use Groupons every step of the way.  Well, I might not ever see that dream come true, but I can find the those looks and more at Barney’s.

Searching for a nice beach to have our family summer outing

Before the school year starts, the sister thought of treating the kids at the beach.  It will also be our family summer outing and bonding.  We usually have our summer outing every year, but this year I thought we will pass because we have other priorities that needs to be be done first.  It was an abrupt decision of my sister.  We have not know yet where to go.  One thing is so sure, it will be at the beach.lol  She wanted to go at the south part of the city.  The problem is I do not have any idea of a nice beach in the area.

The abrupt summer outing will be this Sunday.  I have to search online of a nice beach soon.  I only have three days to do this.  Argsh!  My sister gives me short time to do this.  I wish I can do this mission.  Good thing I have internet connection, I can search online of a nice beaches easily.  Thanks to this technology for it will make this searching job easy.  I have to start now so I can report to my sister if there is any nice beach and have to show her the beaches for her to decide.  My goodness, I have to think of my outfit too.haha!

The laptop is busted, again!

My laptop acting badly for the last two weeks.  There are lots of unwanted and strange pop ups when every time I open a new tab.  It gets into my nerves and I am tempted to throw my laptop.  I felt really angry that I brought it to the technician the first time the laptop stops working.  I should have bought a new one instead of spending much hoping that it will go back to normal.  I end up regretting my decision back then.  The amount of money I have spend for this laptop to be repair is as much as the amount of a new netbook.  I really should have bought a new one.arghs!

I am in the mood to update my blogs today but the laptop is not helping me.  It does not open the browser.  I cannot open my blog.  Unwanted pop ups is still there.  I wonder why this is happening when in fact the laptop has just been reformatted two months ago.  I really do not know what is wrong with my laptop.  Thanks to my sister for lending me her laptop.  Right now I am thinking of bringing the laptop back to the technician of bought a new one.  It really breaks my heart thinking of the money I spend just to repair this valuable laptop of mine.  I guess I just have to close my eyes and give up the old laptop.  What do you think?

Designing his wedding invitation

In two months, my older brother will finally tie the knot.   We are helping him in preparing his wedding because his wife to be cannot move freely because of her condition.  She is two months pregnant and advised not to take extra movement because it is dangerous.  If possible, she will just lay down till the baby turns three months said the doctor.  I am glad that the brother seeks our help.  Instead of going to the shop who make wedding invitations, we will just use the technology that we have and search online for a simple and nice design.

I will just get the style of the invitation I search online and show it to my brother for him to pick of what wedding invitation he likes.  We will not copy the invitation fully, we will just get an idea though.  I am glad the younger brother knows a little about the job of a graphic artist.  He can help the older brother on designing his wedding invitation and tarpaulin.  We are still gathering details on their wedding, and looking for a nice wedding tokens/giveaways.   Hope we will be able to finish it early so we have enough time to rest and relax waiting for the big event of my brother and his wife to be’s wedding day.
