[Petites Fashion] Work Outfit: Navy Jumpsuit

But what this post is - all about real people(that's you and me) fashion, that are petite but not so skinny.  Outfits that I actually wore to work or go somewhere.
Happy Friday everyone!!! 

Today's petites fashion outfit is featuring the next most comfortable thing to wear after leggings - the jumpsuit.

I don't know if you agree with me but jumpsuits are so comfy like leggings but it's a lot dressier than leggings.


This navy jumpsuit I got from TJ Max for less than $30 and I love how it makes me look taller. 


There are a lot of options when it comes to jumpsuits, different colors and patterns, endless possibilities!  Click on any of the photos below to buy yours!
 
Pair it with a floral sandals, flats or pump heels.  It will look just as great.

I hope you like todays post...remember....

Painting | Living Room

After over a year, I finally was able to continue the paint color - SW Comfort Gray - from the kitchen all through the eating area through the living room.
This is not going to be possible without the help of my professional painters.
They both did such a great job helping on this painting project.  What's so cute about this is that, they feel so involved with the project that whenever we have guest over, they're proud to say they helped painted the room. ♥  Even if it was just 3 strokes of roller paint, lol!

We tackled this room one night....

It wasn't too bad at all.  I will be posting some nicer photos soon!

Thanks for hanging out with me today...until then...

[Petites Fashion] Work Outfit: Purple Dress

But what this post is - all about real people(that's you and me) fashion, that are petite but not so skinny.  Outfits that I actually wore to work or go somewhere.
Hello everyone!!!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend!!

Today's petites fashion outfit is featuring my daughter's favorite color - PURPLE.

It's actually something that is very bright and vibrant but layering it with a light pink cardigan will tone the color down.
This dress is a purchase from Dillards when they had a sale January 1st.  The light pink cardigan is from Forever21 for less than $10.  The floral sandal is an old one from DSW, that has been featured here.  

I hope you like today's post, remember...

Boodle Fight ☺

Not too long ago my family and friends had a boodle fight.
 
So what is a boodle fight?
 
It is the most popular culinary experience in the Philippines.  This is a Filipino eating tradition that originated from the Philippine military where a big pile of food are served in the middle of a really long table in a mess hall where every hungry soldier eats with their hands symbolizing  a camaraderie, brotherhood and equality in the military.
 
The “fight” in the name refers to the act of grabbing and eating as much as the soldier can before others grab them or runs out.  Since this is served to very hungry men so if you’re slow you will definitely run out of food. 
 
Boodle Fight is usually arranged were food are served on top of a table lined with banana leaves, then rice is spread in the middle and viands are either served on top or on the sides of the rice.  Since there is no utensils are used when eating and you will have to use your bare hands to eat, everyone is always asked to wash hands before the “fight” happens.
 
This is a really fun and exciting experience for us because it makes us all feel equal.
 
When it comes to the dishes that is put on the table, there are no set rules in what to add.  But some of the popular ones are the dry items like eggroll, fried dried fish, breakfast meats like tocino, longaniza and tapa but the favorite ones are the grilled meats like fish, chicken and pork
Fruits and vegetables are also welcome in this "fight".  Mangoes and watermelon are the most popular ones.  Vegetables like eggplant, asparagus and corn are also welcome.

Looks like a lot?  You better be hungry when you join in the boodle fight.  If you're a slow eater, you better pace up with others or you will be out of food. ☺  Everyone will be busy eating and talking.

For us, we just enjoy the food and the laughter!  Until then...
