Holiday Menu

I just wanted to post here what we have prepared for our Christmas lunch reunion with family. Had no time to think through a healthy menu this year but we vow to live and eat healthier this 2013. Happy New Year everyone!

You got it, Rachel Zoe!

I read this article from People Magazine which talks about fashion biggie and stylist Rachel Zoe on Holiday Dressing. I found her advice so fantastic, like hitting the nail so perfectly.

To repost part of the articele -

“Don’t expose everything just because it’s a holiday party,” she said. “I think sexiness is better left to the imagination — that’s always my number-one piece of advice. I think a lot of women feel that getting dressed up, especially around the holidays, means tons of cleavage and super-micro minis. But let’s keep it classy.”

Speaking to PEOPLE recently at the Piperlime boutique in New York’s SoHo neighborhood, Zoe, dressed in a sleek pantsuit, was busy styling perfect holiday party looks that were covered, but still sexy.
Even for New Year’s Eve, Zoe suggests a classy cocktail dress over a racier, plunging option. “Something like [a silver cocktail dress] is so much fun,” she offered. “It says, ‘Okay, I’m ready to party but I still look really chic and fun.’”

However, holiday parties don’t have to be all about dresses, either; Zoe said there is lots of flexibility this season.

“I want people to know how diverse dressing for the holidays can be — there’s a look for everybody,” she explained. “One person’s leather legging is another person’s sparkly party dress.”

So how will Zoe be spending her holiday season? From the sounds of it, by staying far away from the party scene, ironically.

“For the holidays, I just want to be with my family and not work and relax for 10 days,” she shared. “And just kiss my son 10,000 times a day.” Tell us: Have you picked your perfect holiday party outfit yet?

I recently saw Kris Aquino in the MMFF Awards Night and thought that she better get some sense from what Rachel Zoe said. Her dress was in a nice emerald color but was way too revealing. Hopefully, she will keep her New Year's Resolution as announced over in the net

Luigi's in Kindermusik!

My dear son has finally started to go to Kindermusik. We've been meaning to enroll him for the longest time and only found the perfect time this month. He's attending the Our Time Class every Sunday at Teacher Jeannie and Company.

Here are some picture of their year-end activity:


I've been staring at all these picture frames in the bedroom and feel that I need to do something about it. Something in it isn't sitting well with me. Looks a bit too clutter-y for me. 

What do you guys think?
