Quick Lists Of Things To Love About Snow Days!

 


Happy New Year Everyone! Welcome 2022! Wishing all the best for this year.:)
I hope you're having an amazing start of this new year. 

Have you been enjoying your weather so far? It's winter here and believe it or not it has been great!:) 
However, winter weather is different every year. What will you do if winter is full of snow days? 

Well, it's very rare in our area to have winter snow days. And when the beautiful fluffy snow came, here's what I did!

  • Be Alert - First, always check the news or online making sure it's not a winter storm warning or blizzards.
  • Snow condition - I love it if the snow is fluffy. I always wait until it will cover my backyard with white fluffy snow before going out.
  • Dress for winter weather - Once it's all good, it's time to go outside with my kids and let the fun begin!
  • Photoshoot - Enjoy the beautiful scenery, my backyard is like a scene from Narnia, I love it! It's a perfect backdrop for a winter photoshoot. We took plenty of photos for sure.
  • Activities - Create some fun memories with snow days! Making a snow angel, snowman, backyard sledding, winter photoshoot, and more!
  • Hot Cocoa or Coffee - The best part is to enjoy some warm drinks at the end!
These are just few of the things that you can enjoy and love during snow days. I know snow can also be a headache when it's too much. But when the time is right, I like to enjoy that moment because it doesn't happen everyday. 

Thanks again for joining me today!

Review : Urban Decay Lipstick | Gash

Hello everyone! I hope you're enjoying this fall season full of beautiful colors and yummy pumpkin spice latte!:)

 I'm back with another product review with all of you. This is the Urban Decay Lipstick - Gash. I got mine at Sephora awhile back for about $19. 
First, can we talk about the packaging? It looks cool! Love it!

My kind of lipstick will always be in the darker shade. I haven't owned any Urban Decay lipstick, so swatching it in the store was helpful when trying a new product. 

When I first swatched it on my hand, I knew I love the consistency. It's smooth and has a rich color. 

I bought it and have been using it everyday. Oh my! Can you tell that it's almost gone?:)

The left swatched is just 1 swipe. And the right swatched has  2 swipes.

My Thoughts: If you like deep red color then this shade is perfect! It gives a nice pop of color, it is red with a little bit of shimmer and a hint of dark berry undertone, it's a lovely shade!

It is a cream finish - it applies smoothly and provides a long lasting moisture, it's so comfortable.

It's a buildable lipstick. Awesome rich coverage and long lasting. Did you know that it's Vegan? Wonderful!:) 

Do we have to re-apply it? You can if you want to, but it stays on your lips for sooo long. For example, after eating, there's still a lipstick stain that will remain on your lips, which is fantastic! 

I would rate it 5 star out of 5. This is my go to shade, I love the long lasting power and it's so smooth. 

Have you tried this lipstick? Would love to hear your thoughts!:) 

Thanks again for joining me today!:)

Growing Meyer Lemon Tree

Hello everyone! I hope you're having an amazing day.💕 As most of you know I love plants! Last year, I have been adding more plants for my home, and one of my wishlist was to get a Meyer Lemon Tree. I know, it's a tree and I'm very excited about it!:)

I got one from Home Depot and planted it in a bigger pot, it was super tiny back then, hoping it will grow soon and will see those awesome fruits! Yay! You'll be surprise with how much it grew in just over year. Check out these photos below and it's timeline.


I can't believe I have my own Lemon Tree! Aren't those lemons adorable??? I'm soooo happy!😄 

It made more fruits than that but It did not survived, and sometimes I have to remove some in order for some other lemons to grow bigger.

I brought them inside during late fall to winter or until colder months is over. And bring them out again during spring time.

We harvested my first lemons during Thanksgiving this year and my kids loved their fresh lemonade!💗

I must say that I'm enjoying another new learning experience growing a lemon tree.

Thanks for joining me today!

My New Plants: Monstera Deliciosa & Monstera Adonsonii

I can't deny how much I enjoyed browsing on different tropical houseplants. Adding green to our space is very refreshing. Although I have some plants already, I decided to add more indoor. Before buying these plants, I researched and watched tons of videos to make sure that I am ready to take care of these beauties. 

Today I will be sharing with you my brand new Monstera Plants. 

Monstera Deliciosa - Oh how I love the giant split leaf of this plant. I have it for around 3 weeks, and I'm very happy to share that it has 3 brand new leaves coming. 


Monstera Adonsonii - It is such a unique plant, those holes and texture of the leaves is everything! I also have it with me for about 3 weeks now and it has 2 brand new leaves coming up. It is a vining plant, I can't wait to see it climbing on a pole or trellis.


I'm happy that both plants has adapted to their new environment. I have more plants on my wishlist and I can't wait to share them with you soon.

Do you have any favorite indoor houseplants? Feel free to share it here, so we can check it out!

Have a great day!:)

Herb & Vegetable Garden

Hello friends! It has been a crazy 2020 but I hope that you're all doing well. I know all of us have been busy with work and family. May you find time to relax and take a moment to breath and enjoy little things.

Going to garden centers has always been one of our weekend activities as a family. Unfortunately, we can't go to our local garden centers now because of COVID19. However, thank goodness we can still order stuff online and have it delivered which I will share with you soon.

I was browsing my older photos to look back and check our previous mini garden. 


I remember we had quite a number of tomatoes, and harvested a pretty good amount.


Herbs are definitely on my list, you can't go wrong with Rosemary, Basil, and Peppers too!


Here's our lemon grass, simply perfect for making soup and more!



Have you been planting lately? What plants are you planning to get? I would love to discover new favorites! Feel free share it here.

Thanks for joining me today and stay safe!
