I Want!

I have been eyeing the Shu Uemura eyelash curlers for the longest time. I have heard rave reviews about it and every celebrity make up artist has this. It has a cult following if I may say.

Then here comes the Chanel Precision eyelash curler...
Apparently, they work exactly the same and pretty much identical, giving you fabulously curled lashes. Price? the Chanel one is just a pound more expensive. So, what are you big C fans waiting for? I know I can't wait to get my hands on it and I don't even curl my lashes.

In The Bag

Aside from The Stage Mommy's Trendy Mommy series, I am presenting another one - In Her Bag series. Here I will present my friends' favorite handbags and what's inside them. 
In every one of us, there is this curiousness about what each one of us carries in our bag. For the first ever series, I am presenting my dear friend Joysi. 

She, whom I consider a fashionista long before the "fashionista" word has been coined. She, who 15 years ago, was already trawling specialist designer shops in Cebu when I would just normally go to SM department store for my clothes.She has this ecclectic sense of style and has always been fashion forward way before being fashionable was in fashion. Here's her Chanel and what's inside it.

Luton Hoo

For Father's Day, Ava and I treated daddy to a 5 star celebration at Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf and Spa. 

"Built in 1843, this palatial mansion has played host to Prime Minister Winston Churchil during WWI and Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinbrugh spent part of their honeymoon in 1947 at one of its massive state bedrooms. The estate has appeared in films Four Weddings and Funeral, The World Is Not Enough, Eyes Wide Shut and most recently last year in Steven Spielberg's War Horse"(history found on the web)

The place obviously did not disappoint. In fact, I would like to go back. The French Toast was light as air and the Vienna coffee is perfect for any given morning.

The stroll around the estate is something to look forward to as well. It is very picturesque and a leisurely walk will definitely take your stress away. Well, it did for me.

Invitation To Shop

I received this morning an invite from Harrods. Well, I call it an invitation to spend money. 

I would if I could but then money is tight right now. I will browse and see what's offered online but that's about it. At least, that's the plan. *wink* As the line goes "for everything else, there is Mastercard"

About Ava

I am really enjoying having a girl. I love the fact that I can dress her up with nice little outfits and she seems to enjoy it, too. Way before I gave birth to her, clothes, shoes and toys were sent from friends and relatives all over the world. I am lucky that I didn't have to buy most of her clothes, shoes and toys. We might buy an odd one here and there but most of her things are gifts. Even up to know, I am still trying to use some of the clothes that were given to her on her birthdays. I can say that she has a vast range of brand of clothes, so much better than mommy's. But the stage mommy is not a snob mommy, I let her wear anything, regardless of the brand. It's the quality that matters in my book.
