Monday Socks!

Chatty Feet Image

I recently received a set of 4 pairs of socks by ChattyFeet, and I am in awe of how different these socks are. Now I must say I am usually not a fan of colourful socks. You will usually see my feet bundled up in good old monochrome socks, but all that has changed since I laid my eyes on Venus, Sandy, Miko and La Diva; those are the names of the socks just incase you were wondering what I am on about, lol.

Me receiving this funky colourful pair of socks has opened my eyes to the beauty and fun in wearing colourful socks. I love the colourful and funny designs, and the fact that they have names is the coolest part of it. Life is too short to wear boring socks, so I am going to wear the life out of my playful ChattyFeet socks.

Ready the Tools and Equipment Needed: Must you rent some outdoor umbrella, chairs, and tables, do it as soon as you completed your guests’ list and invites so you can pretty much estimate the number of pax that will grace your event.

As the natural space outside becomes a blank canvas of opportunities to paint beautiful memories, endless ideas can be poured in planning the outdoor party you have in mind. Take this chance to prep your backyard with some lovely trappings and decors—and imagine your guests also take their time to appreciate the scenery and the fresh air outdoor. Just the thought of it gives you beautiful visions of your friends and families filled with laughter and lively spirits as everyone enjoys a day with the sun, right? Here are more ideas and some reminders for the outdoor party you have been dying to throw for your loved ones.

  • Unleash Your Crafty and Creative Side: Have a theme in mind and from there, begin to visualize and list the little pieces of details that would make up the whole outdoor party. You need a piñata for a child’s birthday? Make one. There are a lot of DIY now on youtube to help you through.  Since this is an outdoor party and you’d be probably taking everyone in the garden area, make sure your flowers and greeneries are well arranged too. Take out those fresh cuttings out of art colored papers, cartolinas, felt papers, etc to decorate the place. Don’t forget to print a good banner that will serve as a welcome signage to your guests. Balloons are always a good idea too especially if this is an event to celebrate someone’s success or simply if someone turned a year older. Whatever it is, make sure you let your creativity be put into practice as you make this outdoor party your best one to date.

Tofu and Salsa? Why not!

Do you like tofu? I’ve always loved the stuff! Even as a child, I was that weird kid ordering it in restaurants and sneaking cold cubes of it off the cutting board as my Dad prepared dinner… Of course, back then (at least according to my Dad) tofu was just for Chinese food… and hippies 😜
