We're gonna do a long drive this weekend for camping (around 500 miles back and forth, maybe more). So relieved that we have much more space now for the things we need to bring.

Last night our friends decided to hang out at our place after having a really long dinner at a pho place near our house. Unfortunately, a friend of mine accidentally locked her keys and her 1-year old baby boy in the car. What an agonizing 15 minutes that was waiting for a locksmith while the baby was crying strapped in his car seat! So traumatic! Finally the guy came and asked my friend where she thought her keys were. She was in panic mode at that time and didn't remember so she said, "I don't care about the keys! Just get my baby out!!!"

We saw a lot of wildlife, mostly deer and elk but also a couple of brown bears!
View from one of our rental cottages.
Breathtaking! I think this was in Radium.
Still in Radium.
The nicest Canadians you will ever meet :)
On our way to go somewhere.
Lake Louise was still frozen :(
On the Banff gondola. It still snowed there despite it being springtime already. I only brought one coat so most of my pictures look like I'm wearing the same outfit... Anyways, if you've noticed that I got a little rounder it's coz we are expecting a little one! We are so excited :) So my posts will probably be a bit more baby-centric when I do update my blog.

This better be worth it...

I haven't had time to update my blog in a while because we moved to a bigger place and I've been busy with so many things. Anyway, I'm feeling a little sentimental even though I don't miss our old place that much, just wanted to remember it...
Continuing with out apartment tour... We painted our living room walls a light green color (we used Benjamin Moore paint all over our very colorful apartment). We got 14 small Malma mirrors from Ikea and just hung them over the couch to cover the blank wall. The beige sofa we got from Raymour & Flannigan. You could also spot our surround sound speakers which were a real eyesore for me but it was great sitting here watching movies...
This corner was quite useless - just an old side table from my parent's house, a lamp from Ikea, our wedding album and some other stuff.
I love this wall hanging I got from Bed, Bath & Beyond. We had a nice time one weekend assembling our wedding pictures in it and arranging everything. It says 'LIVE, LOVE, LAUGH'. My husband's recording gear and guitar are in the corner coz we didn't have anywhere else to put it. Our small entertainment center - Samsung screen and home entertainment system, Wii, and magic mike that we hardly ever use but because we're Filipino, you've gotta have one :) I just put a tray on top of an ottoman so we could put more stuff on top of it like scented candles, a plant, and a mirrored box to hold our wires and chargers.
I miss our tiny kitchen. It was small but very efficient. Got the decal on the wall from Target.
I'm glad we have a bigger sink and a nicer faucet now but I miss having a dishwasher. I have to wash dishes by hand again... I love those blue Scotch Brite sponges, those are my favorite, I stock up on them when they're on sale :) I also can't live without my trusty Brita filter for the best tasting water on earth.
On our other kitchen counter - rice cooker, bread toaster, my set of awesome Cutco knives, cooking utensils, a jar for storing oil that we're planning to reuse, bread, scented candle, some magazines for recycling. Standard kitchen stuff.
Love our dining area, got the wall hangings from The Container Store. The black looks striking against the light blue walls. We chose dark furniture for our first apartment, it's just easier to maintain. The dining set is also from Raymour & Flannigan.
My favorite room - the bathroom. It's bigger than most because it's disabled-accessible. The tabo is an eyesore, I know, but they're not big on bidets here in the States. I was going to put a little storage system on the wall above the toilet but just never gotten around to it.
Got this decal from Target also. Really miss my pink bathroom...
This was my vanity area, I had a love-hate relationship with it because I loved that everything was accessible but also hated how everything was in full view.
So that concludes our apartment tour. Will do one of our new place when we're done fixing it up.

Also got a candle for myself, flavor is Mint Leaves & Lime but this is from another company. Burning this baby right now...

I don't normally like to use liquid foundation because for me powder is much faster and easier to apply. I have to say though, I quite like Maybelline's Super Stay Foundation. It's supposed to be long-lasting too (haven't proved it yet though) and very affordable. Nice medium coverage and the consistency I like better than MAC's Studio Fix Fluid.

Got another lip product...
And finally, what I really set out to buy originally. I like the faint rose smell, it's really light. Works as well as MAC fix + when used as a setting spray, in my opinion.
