I've been Tagged!!

I haven't been busy with Etsy lately, but thank God for Etsyan friends like Stacy of Stacy Designs, I am back in the loop. She tagged me! I never really knew what it meant until I got a message from her through my blog. Do check out her store. I personally love these Candies Forever No. 5 Earrings she made.

Anyways, here are the rules:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.


Here are my 7 random facts:

1) I grew up bullying my younger sister. When our Mom gave us milk to drink before bedtime, I'd force her to drink the rest of my milk when Mommy wasn't looking. I still believe that's how she ended up growing taller than me.

2) When I enter an empty ladies room, I always go to the last stall just in case a murderer comes in and starts shooting the stalls one by one. At least I have time to crawl under to the other already shot stalls before he reaches me (morbid I know...)

3) When I was single, I never had a long list of characteristics of how I wanted my husband to be. All I asked was for God to give me a husband who would be able to survive on an island and live off the land just in case anything bad happened. True enough, God blessed me with a husband born and raised in Hawaii who can catch fish and lobster with a spear :)

4) I'm Filipino- born and raised in the Philippines, but I still haven't memorized the days of the week in Tagalog.

5) When I was a child, putting on a shirt was a challenge. I always ended up putting my head through the sleeve instead of the neck hole even if I believed that it felt like the neck hole. So to fix that, I told myself to put my head through the sleeve- and when I did that- I always ended up putting on my shirt correctly.

6) I cut my hair at most twice a year.

7) My ex-boss was Eric Stoltz. I was a production intern for a movie called Sleep With Me where he was the producer and actor. I never got to tell him that his kissing scene in Some Kind of Wonderful was the best kissing scene I ever watched. It still is.


I am tagging

1) Devon of Devonstitching
2) Apol of La Pomme Stories
3) Raven of Dirty Pretty Things
4) Monica of Feltland
5) Kieu Le of Kieutiepie
6) My sister Maya of Swingapore Sister
7) Itsy of Above Happy Valley

Sorry everyone!!!

Vanilla Malia

The perfect ice breaker for this coming summer! Click here and here to buy the Vanilla Malia in large.

Drivin' Down Brazil

So I was scanning through iTunes when I saw one of my old (no pun intended) disco idols back with a new album. Who would have thought Donna Summer would have more songs other than Hot Stuff and Bad Girls to get down with. She's back with Crayons.

Stamp Your Feet sounds really dancey- like a cross between Kylie and Fergie. Or does todays music just sound alike? Haha. I don't doubt that too. I'm not a music snob that will dissect music and tell you how organic (not) this CD is. Or how the Queen is back in fighting form, with late 70's disco mixed with early 80's English techno pop. I'm pretty shallow when it comes to music. As long as it makes me dance, then it's thumbs up from me.

The other song that caught my attention was Drivin' Down Brazil. Now this track sounded so cool- I could see myself sipping a Caiprinha or Margarita while watching the sunset. I could almost see how the music video would go... too bad I couldn't find one. This was the best clip I could find:

P.S. Ignore the first 15 seconds of this youtube clip. The very 90's electronic drumbeat which reminds me of Milli Vinilli is NOT part of this song.

P.P.S. I am watching a delayed telecast of American Idol and didn't realize that iTunes featured Donna Summer BECAUSE she was in the show. Ha ha. I thought I had discovered her on my own.

Better Late than Never

So this post is late. It's the latter part of May, and I am still obsessed with this issue of Domino.

The April issue with Drew Barrymore as the cover. Ever since Holly Becker of Decor8 mentioned it in her blog, I was searching high and low for this issue. After about a month of searching, about mid April, I finally found it in Kinokuniya Ngee Ann City branch. It was worth the wait.

What a pleasant issue. Since Drew Barrymore is practically living my dream career, (making movies and doing it in a really well designed and decorated office to boot), I can't help but swoon and pour over the spread over and over again. I almost feel sorry for the article after hers. The article features her Flower Films Production office decorated by Ruthie Sommers.

Now wouldn't you love to skip breakfast from home only to have it in this wonderful office kitchen? I can already smell the freshly brewed coffee and hot blueberry muffins! My personal quick breakfast of choice is a glass of potent iced coffee and a peanut butter toast.

And what about their lovely powder room? Almost a perfect place to catch up on literature!

Even just the entrance of their office is marked by this red door. Already with character and punch.

Don't you think the details of her office are just divine?

Ok, so I've been mentioning everything else and you haven't seen a single office desk. Ha ha! Well here is the office of her partner, best friend, and wife of former SNL's Jimmy Fallon, Nancy Juvonen.

Now isn't this office so conducive for creativity? I don't know if this issue is still on sale, but if it is, I do encourage all interior, movie, or Drew Barrymore buffs to check out this issue. It is surely a treasure to keep.
