my new yellow watch

I have mentioned in my previous post that I rarely buy new stuff for myself + that when I do I almost always get the ones which are on sale. In January, I saw this yellow watch in one of those groupon sites I frequent for best online deals + I instantly fell in love with it! Yellow is one of my favorite colors + I felt like I have to get one of those. It was also a good thing that they are up at 50% off, otherwise, I wouldn’t have bought it {yes, I am that cheap! :D}

Anyway, apart from its color, I also love this watch since it is a sports watch + I can just simply wear with just about anything: jeans, shorts + plain tees {my kind of fashion!}. Very versatile, which sort of works for me since I am not really into going through loads of accessories to choose from every time I dress up 😀

My watch came in the mail a lot earlier than scheduled, so two thumbs up to that online groupon site! It also comes with this cute brown box, + this tiny orange pillow, to boot! 🙂

What do you say, do you think my watch looks good on me? 😉

a glass of milk a day…

women health, food, brown, milk

I have always loved milk + will make it a point to have a glass or two, if not daily, at least a few times in a week, so a carton or two is always present in my shopping cart whenever I do my groceries. My sister has a n entirely different story, since she was a child, she has never been too fond of drinking milk, but since she’s found out a few months back that she might be prone to scoliosis, she has been trying hard to drink milk at least once a day.

The chocolate-flavored ones is the only form of milk she said she can take, so the last time she was at the grocers she bought a few packs of this chocolate milk brand and gave me some. With a few cubes of ice, my chocolate milk is perfect on a hot, Saturday morning.

Apart from keeping us hydrated + working wonders for our bones + teeth, did you know that the Calcium, Magnesium and Potassium in our milk is also good to reduce the risk of certain diseases including obesity, breast cancer + Type 2 Diabetes? It also reduces high blood pressure. + if I were you, I’d start the daily milk habit, now! 😉

my surprise valentine’s treat

Look what I got in the mail in time for Valentine’s? A surprise treat from Russian Cookie House. I won in their Russian Cookie House Valentine’s Giveaway + true enough they sent me my prize on Valentine’s Day! I fell in love with the elaborate packaging comprised of a heart-shaped red box complete with a “Just for you” note, a red rose + a very beautiful brown ribbon.

Who wouldn’t fall head over heels for this beautiful packaging. The box is made of sturdy carton + I will be re-purposing it to hold some of my knick-knacks once the goodies are gone, which won’t be too long now 😀

I love the simple yet delicious taste of the white cookies {whatever you call them?} + I especially enjoyed the yummy + crunchy taste of the chocolate ones! This is something I’d enjoy long before Valentine’s is over.

Big thank you goes out to Ms. Gina of Russian Cookie House for sending the goodies promptly!

Am sharing these delectable browns to Thursday Brownies, by the way! 🙂
