SSS2 Around and About...

Week come to an END!

Isn't it too quick? Absolutely too quick... Gee! It's already the month of July? Dóh... and soon Autumn? EU didn't start its summer yet? Arrrgghh... complicated? Indeed, I am, what I mean the weather... Well, I can't do anything about it and neither do you, so, what shall we do? Enjoy and have fun, right? When sun shines, run out for the shadow hunt, if not? then we go around inside our houses and we might find the great shots in there.


SO CHECK WHAT I'D GOT FOR YOU...
Oppss... this is my gear for today... Sporty! You have a hint where I am going...
I passed by my cubby house & it looks their screaming for a "HELP revamp US!!!"
I was deaf that moment & continue...
Voilá! my dance Victoria Secret bag, where am I heading?
I passed this gasoline station and Panda winked at me, who can resist not taking a shot?
The whole thing is a shadow from the advertisement on the glass
The entrance of my dance school "TIDA", I love the crispy shots not one or 2 but lots!
I & my dance partners always had a great time. I missed them so much, the giggling time,
The "stepping on me" thing and "You know what I mean?"
Hope to see, meet and dance with them again. 
******
Anyhow, after an hour, time to head home...
This was what I met when I came at D´Box
Gee! Lil Missy is chillaxing in the backyard?
MOTH was busy watering his crops
Oh, thank you MOTH, for bringing out the laundry *wink
Home Sweet Home, I guess? EEEEEKKK!!!... chaos here... 
But you still can see subtle shadows, do you?
I am packing all table blings & stuffs but this is another story to be continue...
So, keep on looking at me §;-) 

Hope you are having an enjoyable trip of my day inside and out of D´Box. My SSS always starts at home and ended at home and you always find the shadows we are looking for, subtle and crispy.

HAVE A BLISSFUL SSS DAY SHADOWLANDIA

Absolutely Swedish --- IKEA with LUV

Funny said than done!!!

Absolutely! Many of my Swedish readers might think I am a nosy kind but actually I am not. It's just I don't have time to visit Ikea, although the world's largest Ikea store is just a 5 mins drive from where I live.  MOTH & I, don't like the chaos, which most Ikea stores are.  

I like knick-knacks, frills, blings, name it, what men hates... therefore he preferred to drive me and let me visit an unusual stores. I always find interesting pieces and not just like them, I LOVE them.

Last Monday, me and a dear heart friend from Florida (a flight attendant of United Airlines) , visited me and that day, was pouring, so we decided to stroll IKEA store and ended our whole afternoon in there. It was fun together with someone, like me, --- looooove shopping.


Carol knows I am crazy of all table blings. We critized everything we wanted to see, however, we ended to love some pieces in there. We bought most of what we both love and the reasonable prices we both can't resist and of course the simple style.

IKEA finds with some vintage touch...
A placemat... don't you think this is pretty?
Vintage salad plate from SIL
Napkins were placemats too, but it's too soft for a placemat, so it's ended  in there
Vintage coffee cups gift from SIL, green glass IKEA
Candle centerpiece--- they are from IKEA but not the cakestand
Vintage coffee set joins as they fit with the pink roses theme...

Monsieur Baker wants to join too! For a bling sake... he reckoned
.Mr. & Mrs vinegar & soya shakers with P&S shakets



Candle glass, Ikea
Drinking glass, Ikea



Lit the candles... sun still shining eventhough it was already  8.30pm
 After nearly 2 hrs... sun still shone subtly

Hoping to feel the coziness...
Hope you all have a blissful pre-week-end. Don't forget to visit All BNOP's players, so we have more enjoyable game and see what other have to share.

Modified Midsummer @ D´Box on SSS2 Day...

Have you heard how Swedes celebrates Midsummer?

Well, to those who are not keen of the European Midsummer, it was said that this day, is one of the most celebrated day specially in Scandinavia, Latvia and Estonia, apart from Christmas day. Press the link, pls? Mid-summer

Usually, one of my cousin and her family, host this celebration every summer, then gather our families and dear friends. This time, it was hosted by D´Nics at D´Box due to the reason that my cousin is in The Philippines, enjoying their summer vacation.
