Home Makeover

It's the new year! And we all want to have a new look. For my case, I want a home makeover.
Yes, you read it right. I want to give my home a new look for this year...at an acceptable cost of course! So just exactly how do I do that?

I can opt for full renovation, which can be very pricey. I can opt for changing the color of the entire, which is still pricey. Or I can just to some facelifts like taking care of the house interior.

So I tried to make some research on house interior repainting and got to Hingham Massachusetts painters which allowed me learn a lot about interior painting at an economical cost. I admit it was quite educational for me and for one, I learned that letting the professionals do the work make not necessarily spell huge cost but rather can be economical and can make you save some money in the long run not to mention being able to keep some standard and quality of work done.

So...that's it. I am giving my home some facelifts. I am checking on some palettes over the weekend. I plan to make the whole interior versatile in a way that a few change of curtains, and flowers and vases would allow me to change the look of my home interior all year round...since there is no way I can change the hues several times a year, you know!

Needless to say, I am very excited! It feels like shopping for some makeups and going to the salon for have my hair and nails done. Haha, I know it is quite an analogy but my vanity always gets extended to my abode and my car. That is how I roll. ***wink

Happy new year guys!

Party With The Nifties

I have been wanting for months now to start blogging again.
But what do I blog about? I have nothing to say.
So today, I am trying to overcome this sill 'when you have nothing to say syndrome' just to get me going. Just to keep my finger busy...and I will keep hitting the keyboard with whatever nonsense excuse there is to talk about. Ha!

While no doubt the holiday season is keeping everyone in a rush...I on the other hand seem to slowly find my balance, and hopefully I get to have that full rest before Christmas! Last weekend was fun, I had a great time with the girls, and I promise I am going to blog about each of them! Yup, soon!

These are snapshots of the fun times we had...






 
 
 
Good food. Good wine. Great friends. Indeed, I am blessed.

Sunrise From the City of Smiles



“There's always a story. It's all stories, really.
The sun coming up every day is a story.
Everything's got a story in it.
Change the story, change the world.”

― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky



Another day to make things right. Appreciate life. Live life out loud. We have 24hours every day, make each moment count.

Happy Not So WORDLESS WEDNESDAY to you all!

Quest for Something Quaint


PhotoHunt: QUAINT



For whatever reason, this is the photo the came to my mind when I saw this week's theme. I just grab this from an old post, Spending My Time. This is a very old photo of mine. And somehow it allows me to travel back time and become the old me again. Exactly what I need right now.

Happy weekend guys!



When Friday Feels Like Monday

Surprise! Surprise!
I know.
One of those days. I  need to go back to my comfort zone...and for almost 10 years, this has been my comfort zone. Always has been. Always will be. If I am not blogging, I am reading old blogs then I am me again. :)

Nothing extra ordinary. Nothing monumental. Just me finding myself alone in my office with gazillion of feelings. The good feelings, and the not so good feelings. Ha!

Today is Friday. My week is supposed to be ending, yet it feels like Monday. That doesn't necessarily mean that it's bad. Just not the usual.

For the past 5 years, life has been different. And everyday I reflect and try to understand on who it has become different. Today I came to understanding what has changed. It's not me but my circumstances. The busyness for the past 5 years afforded me to focus more on my career and in helping more people around me. It allowed me to look past my own worries and needs. Yet today, I woke up missing the me spoiling myself. Then I needed to run to the office. Manic Monday blues on a Fly Day it is!

Of course...when Friday feels like Monday, there is only one resolve for me. More Coffee for me!
