Attachable Front or Backseat Car Organizer Storage Car Seat Cover

a-backseat organizer

Don’t you hate it when your car is cluttered?  And if you are traveling with kids, the clutter is worse.  Yet there are solutions to this problem.  One of them is a car storage and organizer that you can attach behind the seat.

This item has been in my wishlist for a while until it was fulfilled a week ago by Amazon.  Yes.  I bought this item at a discount price from Amazon.  I find this item neat because:

  • the material is sturdy durable polyester.
  • it sits straight and flat behind the seat.
  • the straps and locks adjust and snaps very well.
  • its seven storage pocket compartments can hold books, snacks, packed drinks, and other important knick-knacks you and your kids need while traveling.
  • the color of the product matches just right with the interior of my car.
  • it is easy to wipe clean.

How neat is this Attachable Front or Backseat Car Organizer Storage Car Seat Cover?  This way, I can prevent clutters in my car.  A few favorite little kids’ toys, small books, and a gadget are all we need to bring.

Got It Just In Time For The Holidays – ‪#‎SugarPlum‬ Lip Color

It is always a necessity for me that whenever I leave the house to go somewhere, I always wear at least a lipstick.  Though I rarely put on make-up, I love putting on a lip color not only to put a glow on my face but also to make me feel pretty. 🙂

I am so glad to receive this NYC Expert Last Sugarplum Lip Color* which is included in the Frosty Vox Box* from Influenster.  It arrived just in time for the Holidays.  Christmas party invitations are coming left and right and I just wish I have plenty of time to accommodate the mall.

But this evening’s Christmas Eve celebration with the family is a high priority.  I am wearing the Sugarplum Lip Color.  My lips feel soft.  The lipstick didn’t make my lips dry.  I love it!  The lip color is just right for every day wear.  It is an addition to my lip color collection now.  I can take it any time, any where.

Planning A Pool Party At Sabin Resort

My sister will be celebrating her birthday next month.  We will be organizing a simple yet a special treat for her because it will be the beginning of her journey to adulthood.  Yes, she is turning 18.

We are planning for a pool party.  And my sister likes that.  I already booked a room at Sabin Resort Hotel.  The resort is about 10 minutes Southeast of Ormoc City Proper depending on traffic.  It has been the family’s traditional venue for special events.  Up to now, the room rates remain affordable.   They have swimming pool for adults and kids too.  The newly built function hall can accommodate up to 100 guests.  Sabin Resort Hotel also has function rooms which can accommodate 30-50 people.  They serve great foods according to guests’ preference.  If I have to rate the customer service from 1 to 10, I say 6.  My rating is based from our stay two years ago.  Sabin Resort Hotel is a memorable place for me because it’s where my husband gave his marriage proposal to me.

Anyway,I hope everything will go as planned so my sister’s party will be memorable for her too.  The resort is very accommodating when it comes to ambiance.  I bet she and her guests will have great fun on her birthday.

Dress Rehearsal?

I was so aggravated by this clerk at JC Penney Portrait Studio. You know why? Here is the story:

We were supposed to have our family portrait taken this afternoon. About one o’clock in the afternoon I called all the photo studio nearby us but they are all booked, including the JC Penney in Rockwall. So I called the one in Fairview.

I said, “I want to schedule for portrait session. Is there a slot available for today (Sunday)…afternoon? The clerk (her name starts with W) asked me the time preference.

“How about 2 or 3 pm today?”, I answered.

“I can schedule you at 4pm today. Would that be alright?”, she asked.

“Sure. That’s fine with me.”, I said. So went ahead and scheduled for a photo session-4pm Sunday, March 20. The clerk got our names and other information. I told my husband about it and he’s okay with it.

Fairview is about 45-50 minutes from my house. We were so ready for the photo session. But when we arrived at the portrait studio (on time), the clerk said that the studio is already closed for the day. Wait a minute! We have a 4pm schedule right? She said there is nothing she can do about it because her register is already closed at 3pm.

I said, “What??? So what’s our conversation over the phone about?!”
“Let me check again.”, the clerk said. Then she apologized. She scheduled us for next Sunday! Isn’t that st***d? She asked if we want to keep the appointment for next Sunday. I said, “Thank you, but forget it!”

Grrr! I really wanted to pull her hair. We left the store. Two hours have been wasted because of a staff’s inefficiency. My husband said, “Well, this is like a dress rehearsal (talking to our baby girl).”

I thought we will have this portrait thing done. The goal for the week would be perfectly achieved. But, no. We will do it again next weekend. Good thing I asked the clerk’s name. That helped me keep on my ground. If you make appointments over the phone, do not forget to ask the name of the person you are speaking with just in case something is messed up.
