My 2014 Planner

gifts, mum's thoughts, simple pleasures

In my quest to be more productive, organized and purposeful this 2014, this arrived in my mailbox not too long ago. It was sent by an angel who has always been good to me and whom I consider a really dear friend, even if we mostly get to communicate and catch up with each other’s lives through chat. I did not buy a new planner for this year and that is probably the reason why the universe sent me this one!  :heart:

gifts, mum's thoughts, simple pleasures

My planner is just perfect for writing down my daily activities and schedules. It will also come handy especially in the coming school year when the little man will have a schedule of his own, which I ought to jot down so I won’t forget every bit of it. This is also perfect for taking note of everybody’s special day, as well as blog deadlines and appointments, among other things.

I simply love my new planner and I also adore its simple yet elegant color. I am really psyched to use it and I cannot wait to fill its pages with goals, travel plans, as well as with the little man’s daily milestones and developments in his new playschool. Thank you so much, Mommy Rubz for this lovely gift!  :heart:

For The Love Of Shoes

Blog Photo Challenge, #fmsphotoaday, simple pleasures, women fashion, shoes, gifts

Unlike most women am not really too fond of buying shoes. Oh well, I only do if I really like the design, when I need it the most and I have a budget for it! And since I do not have the need to wear shoes on a regular basis {if you happen to know me, you will have noticed that I normally go out clad in my ever-reliable and most comfy flip flops! :-)) }, I seldom buy. The last time I purchased a pair, a rubber shoes, was earlier this year when I planned to join a local fun run.

One of the reasons why I do not find the need to buy shoes that often is Jared’s dad’s fondness in giving me one. Over the years he has given me quite an assortment of different footwear which I absolutely adore, among them my dainty floral Gola doll shoes, a Vans slip-on, a pair of Havs which I wore all throughout my pregnancy, a pair of Ipanema flip flops which I loved so much I wore it almost every day and to any just about anywhere, and my cool Sanuk slip-ons.

For our anniversary last year, Jared’s dad gave me another Sanuk pair and I simply like it. It was very comfortable and fits my feet perfectly. I love that its washable and that it is a very eco-friendly product, as well. This is now my new go-to shoes whenever I go out and need to wear something more decent than my flip flops!  :laugh:
