It’s really true that a home need not be a mansion to look beautiful, you just got to be resourceful and creative. The husband is planning to have a separate room, like a home theatre and I saw some really great ideas fit for it. I want to paint those egg trays red for a cozy room effect. Another thing, Lighting tips for modern interior are really helpful when it comes to proper placing of light to create a nice, just the right atmosphere for every corner of your home. Winks!

Blue Monday - Joy ride at Oceanside Ft Pierce, FL

Smiling Sally

Weeks ago we went for a joy ride with our daddy (kiddos and I). He's then out for business calls meanwhile for us, we just enjoying the scenic views of the places we drove by going to his destinations. The beautiful photos just speak for it self. As we passed to this location the blue building caught my very eyes. It is indeed stunning. This building if am not mistaken is an apartment by the beach.

Meanwhile, as we drive along the coastal line, we saw some beautiful hotels and buildings. Another log-stone building that simply caught my attention. I love how the way it looks, the stones and logs compliment each others. I told my husband that's my dream house and i wanted him to build exactly the same for us in the future, lol. 

I never get tired driving around if the views are like these, relaxing and beautiful! Plus the weather is lovely. Life is good.

Back home in the Philippines, when it comes to travel, the most common or shall I say most budget-friendly and enjoyable means of transportation is through big buses. I still can remember having to travel 13 long hours via bus, I actually prefer and love it more than airplanes and ferries. Road trips indeed has this soothing feeling, like it feels so good being able to just sit back, laze yourself, and see the never ending road and beautiful sights. Well that was in the Philippines, here in the US, not ones I tried riding a bus, so yeah imagine how I missed the feeling?

Out of curiosity, I gave All About America, the leader in motorcoach industry a visit. It is a company that’s all about bus charters and anything related to “by land” means of transportation. So I learned that their fleet includes:

  • 9 passenger vans 
  • 48 passenger full size luxury touring motorcoaches 
  • 56 passenger full size luxury touring motorcoaches 
  • 71 passenger school buses (equipped with a/c and seat-belts) 

Features also includes reclining seats, Wi-Fi, restrooms, foot rest, DVD, CD and VCR plus so much more! Imagine how cool those big buses are! When I think of riding a bus and actually travel by land soon, I cannot help but smile. Geez I missed the feeling so bad! Lol!

Seafood Destination - Florida


Fall is just around the corner which means starts to get busy again. Vacationers from up north is going down to sunshine state. The weather is pretty much beautiful all year round, although we may get a lil bit cool but that's it! A state that rarely gets cold. That's why during cold seasons people are staying here until the spring approaches. One great thing to experience on the land of sand and sun is the seafood galore. Best seafood destination, from great dining experience, gourmet food and nice restaurants name it! All year round Florida have this seafood festivals and events. All sorts of seafood delicacies from different origins gather together. Luckily, we attended two of those festivals recently. Can't wait for the next one coming! It is always fun and the excitement is high. 

So if you are thinking of Florida getaway don't miss the chance to explore the seafood celebration here and there! Wink.

Counting the Days

When I hear those words above, I can’t help but think of home, the Philippines. I missed everyone especially my family. I can’t wait to wake up late in the mornings knowing that my mom had already prepared breakfast for us. My heart skips when I think of having a nap beside my grandmother again. I giggle when I think of riding the motorbike with my father, and feel so excited, certain that my sissy and cousins are my kids’ babysitters. I longed for the day and I know it’s going to be soon which makes me even more excited! So anyway, since I’m home sick, why not search for some friendly flight rates back home.

I am actually thinking of doing so via an agency. Like have someone professional process everything from our papers to the tickets, etc. Thus to avoid hassle and missing stuff, I’ll just have to sit back and relax while waiting for the flight. But then I strongly believe that I’m a good travel organizer, lol! Modestly aside, having able to work for a travel agency before I know the basics, the good side and the bad so why not do the booking myself. There are online websites anyway that can provide me with the necessary stuff and since it’s online, I can search for better rates, even discounts. I saw some great deals from there and here for US Airways, just trying to decide which date would be perfect. (Can’t help dreaming/wishing/hoping :D)

By the way i know you guys planning also for a much awaited getaway, right? So just check online deals from time to time and in no time you will mostly get what you are looking for! Always remember patience is a virtue, wink!

Food Truck Frenzy


I know this is popular across America! I've heard my aunt in CA about food truck as well and is it indeed the most known around California state. I used to just watch them compete on television food channel and wished to be there one day! And so my wish granted me to experienced one awesome event! Food truck frenzy is invading Florida right now, it is a huge outdoor picnic where food trucks of different places, cuisine and menus food that is cooked as you order.

Worth to try and i advice you to roam and check the entire trucks first before you decide what to order because they're bunch of them that are so bloody good! We had a  good experienced last Saturday at our locale.

Hotels and Accommodations in Niagara Falls

Being that Niagara Falls is one of the Natural Wonders of the world, it stands to reason that it is also one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Given that so many people from around the globe travel to this region, there is no shortage of Niagara Falls hotel and accommodations. In fact, there are some 160 plus accommodations in the area, including hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts and inns. Whether you're looking for a full-service hotel that will accommodate your every whim or a more intimate setting, like a bed and breakfast, is more up your alley, a bed and breakfast may be more what you are looking for.

Difference Between Accommodations

Wondering what the difference between a hotel, motel, inn and bed and breakfast is? Here's a look at some of the distinctive traits of each:

Hotel: A hotel typically provides the most elaborate accommodations. Jacuzzi suits, restaurants, room service and plush accommodations are typically offered at hotels.

Motels: Motels typically offer the basic items that a traveler would need, including bedding, a shower, phone and television. Some motels also provide Continental breakfasts and pools, as well.

Inns: Inns are very similar to motels in that they typically provide only the basics that you would need while traveling; however, an inn offers a more family-friend, cozy feeling than a motel. They are usually family owned and operated.

Bed and Breakfast: A bed and breakfast offers the most intimate experience of them all. A bed and breakfast is usually run out of someone's home or a house that used for the sole purpose of a bed and breakfast. Bedrooms are let out for rent, which are private, but other areas of the home are shared public spaces, including living rooms, dining rooms, and kitchens and in some bed and breakfasts, the bathrooms are shared as well.

As with most people, when you fly or take a trip somewhere, you are going to need luggage. I found the perfect place to get all of your luggage, sports bags, backpacks or any other type of bag.

They have a huge range of colors and designs too. 

Many of them have wheels to make them easier to pull around the airport or wherever you take them. They have hard case bags and the normal soft, fabric ones too.Also, who can forget all the accessories that one will need when they travel? Tesco direct didn't forget! They carry everything that you can possibly need. Digital luggage scales, money belts, power adapter plugs, inflatable pillows, luggage ID's, padlocks and many more items!
