Happy Halloween!!



Melody aka Melly gave me this complete Halloween Treat. Perfect and I really need it because I am just facing infront of the laptop the whole day. I deserve to celebrate halloween as well like a kid. Costume? Not a problem, I have one but it’s a secret. Melody, thanks for sending me this halloween treat. I appreciate it very much. Can I redeem it for real? Anyways, Happy Halloween everyone!!! *muah*


I’m giving this halloween treat to the following wonderful girls like Ana à Dijon, Lucille, Janese, Recel, Rowena and Haze.

Which Do You Prefer?

Sarah ganda tagged me this very interesting meme. See? This meme thing really allows us to get to know more our fellow bloggers. Sarah, I'm going to honestly say that I am very thankful that you forwarded this meme to me. Thanks for the thoughts and for dropping by all the time even if you are a little bit busy there at home.

1. Smart or Globe: - I am using smart right now. I got this sim from a friend of mine in Cote d’Azur

2. ABS-CBN or GMA: - GMA, signal at home is not that clear for ABS-CBN

3. Penshoppe or Bench: - i like both

4. Avon or Personal Collection: - none of these 2 choices.

What's Going On With PageRank?

Do you guys understand what's going on with this pagerank thing? I am really confused about it. 2 days ago, this blog has a pagerank of 4 and now it's 0. I'm thinking that maybe the robot of google are very confused with his job as there are more and more bloggers coming out hehehe. But honestly, when I had this pagerank 4, Wow! the oppps were really incredible. I was confused which opportunities should I took as I saw many $$$$$$$ fallin in line. I'm taking as many opportunities as I can everyday as my reserves for my upcoming vacation in Philippines because once there, I can't blog anymore because the resort where we will be staying doesn't have internet connection at all. I've been asking hubby if we could bring the laptop so that I could do the sponsored post during our flight stops but he said no huhuhu. I wish this pagerank thing won't change. I mean, I hope that this pagerank 4 that I had 2 days ago will be coming back.

My Business Woman Friend

A friend of wine asked me yesterday when will I be coming back home in Philippines. I told her that it would be next weekend. Because of my curiousity, I asked her why and she told me if it's okay with me if I could purchase some of the items there and I'll bring these items with me in coming back here in Bordeaux. It is okay for me to do it but I don't know if I will have enough time to do the things that she wanted me to do because hubby and I will be staying only at the city for 3 days and then we will be travelling on the other places. She's a stay at home mom but she's earning something by selling several items online. She's very simple you know but she is really a retailer and a real business woman in her own ways. I asked her if she's interested in buying wholesale fashion jewelry because I know a website that offers interesting prices and she said yes. Well, I just emailed her the references and I am hoping that this site will help her in making her business successful.

Sales Training

In business, one has to be very strategic and it is necessary that you have enough knowledge on how to handle your clients and your business at the same time. Business is quite complicated if you don’t have any knowledge, experience and expertise at all. When we invest our money into something, it is because we want our money to grow and if possible, we wish that the kind of investment we're interested with will be profitable as well. It sounds very simple but it’s not really. But don’t worry, it is never too late and besides, there are many training schools available that you could go for you to enroll.

In United Kingdom, there is a company that specializes in Sales Training and this company is avand.co.uk. They are now offering Sales Training courses and their establishment is one of the famous and good training school in UK. They’ll help you discover and improve your business skills and they will really make you believe that you can be a boss if you really want to make it work for yourself. Avand.co.uk also offers Plumbling training course at present. So if you are interested, check their website and fill-up their information request form.

Spent My Day Searching For Belly Dancing Accessories

What I did today? That's the question I asked to myself this evening while I was having my dinner with hubby. I don't have work today so it means that I was infront of the laptop again. Time seems to run very fast here. I've been making a lot of research at the internet where it is possible for me to buy different hip scarves and other belly dancing accessories here in Bordeaux. Hey, don't interpret nor think that I am a professional or something ha but I am still a beginner and I like what I am doing right now. I am starting to interact with the other students in this dancing school. The bad part is that the students are getting more and more and the place isn't enough for us really. Mondays and wednesdays classes are full already as well as thursdays (I do the thursdays class) and tomorrow saturday. The only wish I have is that hoping there will be morning classes soon. Our teacher Caroline Chatel is a good teacher and a dancer and she's one of the famous instructor here in bordeaux but as we are too many in the class, she can't concentrate in correcting us our mistakes especially the bad posture when were dancing.


Intermediate and advance level aren't that many. I guess there are maximum of 10 students in this class but goodness, they are really good. While I was waatching them, they dance very well already and they move very gracefully. Although it is not really necessary to wear some costumes or anything but students in this level are wearing sexy outfits. Mostly of them are wearing long skirts with very short top and with belly piercings as well. Yes, they have the courage to exposed off their bellies already while we in the beginners level are still babies. I want to be on the intermediate and advance level but it would mean that I have to do a lot of practice, practice, practice and practice.


I spent my entire day searching for a shop where it is possible to buy this special hip scarves that my teacher is using but I couldn't find it. I hope tomorrow, I will find it at Bordeaux Centre. Maybe I'm going to buy a special shoe as well for dancing because my foot looks like duck's feet when naked. Voila! Wish me luck guys

Sweet PIneapple

Last weekend while we were doing our grocery at the nearby supermarket, we found this pineapple. I wanted to have an alternative dessert here so I took it without any hesitation. Why alternative? For our desserts in general, we have chocolate cake, fromage blanc, crumble de figues, apple pie, ice cream, banana split and apples with cream. Hubby doesn't complain anything about it but on my part, I like that I will be serving him different foods everyday. I've been searching for strawberries but it's not the season for it at present. I don't like peaches as well so I don't have any other choice but to try the pineapple here in France. It's a little bit expensive compared to the price in PI but this pineapple is not bad at all because it is sweet as well. Tomorrow morning, I will be preparing fresh pineapple juice for hubby for his breakfast.

It's a little bit small no?


Sweet pineapple

Starlight By Sharon Cuneta



I am not shy to admit that I am an avid fan of Sharon Cuneta. I have all the compilations of her albums in Philippines. I even have the cassette ones. I really love this girl. This is the woman that I idolize very much. I mean she's not just a good singer but she's a very good actress as well, a good wife, very down to earth, humble, a very good mother and a bestfriend to her kids. It is something I'd want to happen in my life as well that my kids will be treating me not as their mom only but I'd like very much that they'll consider me as their bestfriend, a person whom they can share their secrets to especially when it comes to boys and crushes.


I've been searching this song Starlight, Starbright by Sharon Cuneta. I love this song very much. It's very calm and she sung this song very well really. Her voice is very heavenly with this song especially the Starlight, Starbright version with KC Concepcion. I've been looking for a video of them together singing this song but I couldn't find it. Excuse me guys if I am too much but I really praise Sharon Cuneta and she is really perfect. Hubby himself likes this song. I hope she'll have her concert here in Bordeaux very soon. Pag iipunan ko talaga yung ticket kahit 1000€ pa yan just to see her hehehe.

She Won $300 By Playing Online Blackjack

Do you still guys still remember the friend I have who loves to play blackjack? Well, we were chatting this morning while I was eating my breakfast and she’s now in New Jersey. She told me that she won $300 for the first time by playing the online casino game like blackjack. Not bad huh? She and her husband love casinos eversince they were in Philippines. I remember that one time, I was with them and they both taught me how to play blackjack, slots and poker but I honestly don’t have any interests when it comes to gambling. Anyway, due to my curiousity, I asked her why she finally tried this online casino games and she said that she was very lazy to go outside their house just to gamble. Hehehe funny isn’t it but she has a reason. She told me that Pro360 has helped her a lot because she found many informations in this website like the bonuses offered by each casino, reviews and many others. Well, I am happy that she’s enjoying this new discovery she just found.

Hubby Did The Cuisine

Last night, we came home a little bit late because of the tour we had in Cap Ferret. We always do it when the weather is really good like yesterday. We've been always planning on having our weekend in Pays Basque but as we wake up late during the weekend, we ended up by exploring the other places nearby here in Bordeaux. Hubby was planning yesterday to cook a special meal for us called tajine something. He cooked this recipe once and I really loved it. I'm craving to eat it again and yesterday was supposed to be his schedule to prepare this recipe. But we arrived home at 9+ in the evening and the preparation for this tajine recipe is a little bit long so he decided to prepare another tasty meal for us. He prepared the mushrooms and the canard. I couldn't remember the complete name of these menus but they are really tasty especially the mushroom. I wasn't on a diet again last night hehehe.



Tasty Mushrooms



Hubby à la cuisine


Canard


Am I spoiled? Sort of especially when it's hubby who does the cooking. I really love it when he does the cuisine because everything is very tasty. He cooks better than me honestly :-)

Our Tour In Cap Ferret

Hubby and I had a tour around Cap Ferret yesterday afternoon. It is the place where there are many huitres or oysters owners and it is one of the places where you’ll find many beautiful houses as well. The view was magnificent because it is facing the very famous Dune du Pyla and it was sunny. I’ve noticed that people put up their cbu mailboxes at the end of the street. I asked hubby if it’s safe to do it because these mailboxes are quite cute and he instantly said yes. I also noticed that it was not that crowdy at all and hubby told me that majority of the residents here have their own houses too in Bordeaux Centre. The houses in Cap Ferret are considered as people’s vacation house during summer. Well, sometimes I used to think that rich people here really don't know how to spend their money. They should have asked for my help hehehe.

Anna Marie And Thierry Nuptials


I am finally done in uploading my wedding pictures from the cd going here in my laptop. Sorry friends if it took me so long to post the pictures. I have so many things to do and it is one of the many reasons.

To have a religious wedding is one of the dreams I always have. I am happy that I got married in Philippines in a civil ceremony last year with my entire family and hubby’s family. I will honestly say that never I imagined that I will be having a wedding here in France especially on having a wedding in a chateau or castle. My inlaws made it happen for me. They took good care of everything as in everything and the wedding we had here in France was really magnificent. I am thankful because I got the chance to meet my hubby’s relatives and friends and got to know them and talked to them. All of them were nice and it is my pleasure to meet all of them. I really wish that I will be meeting them again in the near future. Hopefully baptism maybe? We will see. It is unbelievable because we had our religious wedding this month and next month will be our wedding annivery (wedding in Philippines). Both of these weddings are different but both are very amazing and beautiful.

To my inlaws, hubby’s friends and relatives…thanks very much for celebrating that special day of our lives with us. I am very to finally met you guys in person. I am happy as well that I finally managed to interact with real french and in french language. Hubby and I will always be thankful for everything. Again, thanks very much especially to our beloved parents whose always there for us and for giving us life in this world.

Rico Mambo 2



The Filipino prisoners rock once again because of their newest dance number entitle “Rico Mambo 2″. At first, they received many attention and was viewed a million times on youtube on their premier dance routine “Thriller”. I saw a video on youtube too that they performed at the Cebu City Capitol during the foundation day. Oh di ba, hanep talaga tayong mga pinoy. I really respect them even if they are prisoners. It only shows that we, filipinos, are very talented. W’ere sikat once again! Mabuhay Ang Pilipino!!!!

Term Life Insurance

Wholesaleinsurance.net is a site that offers life insurances like mortgage life insurance, term life insurance, high risk life insurance, smoker’s life insurance and many others. Their establishment is composed of smart, friendly, nice, and helpful workers who’ll be ready to accommodate anyone who needs to have some clarifications or answers regarding on a specific matter. They understand that the word “insurance” is quite complicated and confusing and it is the reason why they exist. They are always available to discuss insurance issues and they’ll help you the application process from start to finish. You can also get a quick quote in their establishment and these quotes come from the different term life insurance companies. Call them and talk to their life insurance specialist for inquiries.

Health Is Wealth

Health is very important for us. As the saying goes “health is always a wealth” and I strongly agree on this quote. As we get older, we encounter annoying illnesses that progressively grew worse over a period of time like heart problems, digestion, cancer, colon disease and many others. Let’s face it that when we’re sick or somebody in our family is sick, we spend too much money on medications and hospital bills. Agree? But as much as possible, take good care of your health and be watchful always with your diet. Take vitamins and supplements, drink plenty of water, exercise and eat nutritious foods.

If you encounter any problems relating to your digestion or your digestive system, there’s also a supplement available for you. You’ll just have to ask your doctor and he or she’ll give you an ultimate colon cleanse formula available on the market today. Don't be afraid. Give an importance to your health especially if you don’t feel good at all.

They're Staying At Sky Valley Inn Bed and Breakfast

I have a friend who loves to travel very much. She and her husband are really a perfect pair. Why am I saying this? Well, simply because they love to explore places on their own without the help of any agencies or whatever and they always stick on their travel budget. Right now, they are in British Columbia and they are staying at Sky Valley Inn Bed and Breakfast. She showed me their place thru the webcam and their room is really spacious, beautiful and cute. Well, travelling is quite expensive if you depend solely on expensive hotels as your accommodation but there are many affordable inns available everywhere. Inns are an alternative source instead of spending $$$$ at an expensive hotel.

Tired And Busy

What a very busy day I have today. When arrived home yesterday at noon time and hubby and I were very tired. The wedding we had here in France was really great. I am very happy to meet hubby's entire family and relatives. All of them were very kind and nice. I will be posting some pix soon when I'll receive the cd that my father-in-law sent us.

For the mean time, I was very busy here at home cleaning and arranging some stuffs. I did the grocery, cleaned the floor and everything, did the laundry, placed our plants on the terrace and blog hopping. Hubby is very busy today and as usual, he didn't eat lunch as well because he has 3 meetings today. Mon pauvre! If I only know how to drive, for sure I will be dropping him something to eat at work. He just called to check how am I doing here at home and etc. I'm thankful that Picard exist because the food is very easy to prepare. As I am really busy, it allows me to place the food in the microwave only while doing something. I'm thinking of doing some rearranging here again especially our frames. We have so many frames here now at home at the other one is at inlaws' home because the frame was a little bit big but very magnificent. It was personally done by my inlaws' friend for the wedding day. Isn't that sweet?

Anyway, thanks my dear beloved friends for dropping by all the time here in my blog. Even if I wasn't around during the weekend, you guys and gals still thought of me and thanks very much also for the warm wishes. I just finish in doing my blog hopping but I will be doing it again tomorrow.

Online Coupons As A Gift

Two months from now, it will be Christmas and it is just around the corner. This holiday reminds me that I have to prepare my gifts for the entire family. Am I ready for it? A little bit. My christmas list is almost finish and soon I will start shopping. One of my idea is to purchase online coupons. Majority of the websites I found offer tons of very interesting Online Coupon Codes. What are my gifts? For my mom and 2 sisters, I’d like to give them Sephora coupons because they love perfumes very much. Giving them these coupons will allow them to choose the products they want. Easy and hassle-free for me hehehe. For my brother, Adidas coupons will be very perfect for him. He loves shoes especially Adidas brand.

In my opinion, anyone will really save a lot of money by using these online coupons. It is very easy to use, very convenient and stress-free. Well, I’m not going to tell you guys my complete Christmas list ok?

Francine Is Hiatus

This afternoon, we will be leaving here in Bordeaux going to Paris. Once in Paris, we will be going directly to my inlaws’ home. Oh yeah, no time to do lakwacha or anything. Inlaws’ home is 2 1/2 hours from Paris and we prefer to sleep early in preparation for my wedding day on saturday. Do I have beauty regimen for the big day? Not at all. I was busy with my work this week and in doing sponsored post. I was able to sleep very well last night. Although right now, I am a little bit worried for my mom's condition in Philippines. I'm hoping that she'll get better. Everytime I remember here, I couldn't control myself but to cry instantly.

Saturday morning will be my rendez-vous with my hair stylist and make-up artist before heading at the chateau. My wedding proper starts at 5 in the afternoon and then followed by cocktail, reception proper and etc. For the mean time, sorry if I won’t manage to visit your blog my dear friends but I promise that I will do it once were back here in Bordeaux this coming monday.

Spider Man For His Birthday

My nephew will be celebrating his 3rd birthday very soon and I will be giving him a birthday party again. Soon, my family in Philippines will be distributing the birthday invitations I ordered. My nephew is honestly happy and quite excited about it. He knows that he’ll be having a birthday party again. My mom always tells me that he would like to have a spider man costume, bag and t-shirts.

A Gift From Girlie

A gift from Ate Girlie

Haven't you noticed my new header? Well, well, well.... it's the gift I receive from my beautiful friend Girlie aka hipncoolmomma. She's indeed a certified hip and cool momma. Why? Isn't it obvious that she's really cool no? I mean she's a full time mom, a graceful belly dancer, a photographer, a blogger who earns a lot of moolah by doing sponsored post and a seductive wife too. Well, I will honestly say that I am smiling ear to ear here because of this new header I've got. As I am a great dummy, I don't seriously know how to make these kinds of stuff so it is like I win a lotto when I got this banner. It's her birthday gift for me and what a nice birthday gift right? Yeah, I know that I am a very spoiled girl.


I changed my desktop as well

Ate Girlie, thanks very much for the banner. I really love it! Hubby loves it as well and he found it chic and very parisian. I'm blushing here really. Thanks very much talaga te Girlie. I placed this banner on my desktop as well. I'm addicted to it.

Les Bleus Beat All Blacks Haka



When the french team Les Bleus finally won against All Blacks Haka New Zealand, we decided to go at Bordeaux Centre to see how french people celebrate the victory of their team. At first, it was country in our neighborhood but when we arrived at the center, it was really noisy. Frenchies made noise on their cars and scooters by beeping and playing their horns. I really had a lot of fun! I can say that I enjoyed it and it's amazing how french people celebrate this kind of victory. They were singing, dancing, jumping, shouting everywhere and all the vehicles are beeping. It was really noisy. Hubby and I went to the café to have a drink. I wanted to go at the discotheque but it's not possible as we were carrying our helmets with us. At first, I said that french team will never win against New Zealand but it changes afterwards. The game last night was really steamy and heart pounding. Even at the last minute, possible to see on the tv itself that players from both team were nervous but I bet that french team are more nervous. Why? All Blacks Haka has the reputation to be the best and most famous team when it comes to rugby and the best player of rugby sport also comes from New Zealand. I was singing, cheering, dancing, jumping when our team won.


Anyway, video here was taken from my canon camera. It was a little bit dark but hear it for yourself guys and gals. Witness how noisy it was really at the road. The noise you hear from vehicles are not normal at all or it is not something that happens everyday. It is like that when people are celebrating on something on the road. People beeped their vehicles. Hubby did it as well. If you'll notice, some young french at the center approached at the vehicles to scream or to simply congratulate eachother.


Oh next week will be England vs. France at 9 in the evening. Allez! Allez Les Bleus!

Cerebral Palsy

It must be very hard for parents seeing their kids suffering from cerebral palsy. All the parents want to have a very normal and healthy kids and we all like to give them the best life possible but let’s face it that we can’t control everything that’s going to happen. Cerebral palsy is often mistakenly called a disease but let me tell you that it is not a disease and it is not contagious at all. Based on the research I did, there’s no exact causes or explanations what caused cerebral palsy in most children and if it occurs during pregnancy or after birth.

Life must be very challenging if you are a parent of a child with cerebral palsy. However, there are many resources available to assist you in learning how to help your child cope the situations. Remember, knowledge is power and to have proper education or informations about it will help you understand better the issues surrounding cerebral palsy. Just a piece of advice... be patient if you know or meet someone with CP. They are humans too and they need respect.

A Cartier Watch For Him



Our wedding anniversary will be next month. It is fast approaching and it will be coming so fast from now. I’ve been doing so much brain storming here thinking what anniversary gift I will be giving to my husband. Hubby loves watches very much. He is not the type of a guy who loves jewelries but when it comes to watches, it is like a treasure or a precious gem for him. One of my idea is to give him a Cartier watch. These last days, I saw him browsing many websites and checking the different models of this famous brand Cartier. He didn’t notice that I was just observing him. Shhhh, it will be our little secret okay? I know that there is a specific model that he loves very much and I know that he’d like to have it as well. Honestly, I have plans already for our anniversary but everything will be a surprise. Sorry, I can't tell you guys what my plans are exactly. Hubby will be very surprise once he’ll know and see the gift I have for him.

They Want To See "Date Issued"

We woke up very early this morning to go at the Préfecture to have my Philippine driver's license converted to french one. I am very lazy when it comes to waking up in the morning. We were there 7+ this morning and the office opens at 8:30 in the morning. We were 4th in the line. Unfortunately, when it was our turn to submit the papers, the employee was not satisfied at all with the driver's license I had together with the french translation. Why? They are looking for this word "date issued" at the card. There's a date of course written above the signature I did and I tried to explain to them that the date below the picture and is the actual date the license was issued before the owner will sign the card but nahh, they want to see this word "date issued". So strict! Hubby and I were disappointed at all coz we came there for nothing. So now, I need to have this receipt from the LTO translated in french for them to see and to understand that this date below the picture is really and actually the date I received my driver's license. Jezzzz, I couldn't understand in other departments here in France aren't that strict at all like here in Bordeaux. But as I couldn't do anything, I have to follow their rules and laws

Portable DVD player

Have you considered of having a portable DVD player? If your answer is yes, then perfect because DVD players are the hottest items in town. It is very perfect for those who’d want to take their DVDs with them on the road or anywhere they go without any interruptions. One of the store I found where it is very interesting to buy portable DVD player and portable 10 inch DVD player is at Digitalframez.com. It is an online electronic store that sells good and high quality DVD players at a very affordable price. If you’ll check their website, the price of their portable DVD player 10 inch screen is only €169.35 instead of €226.03. You save as much as €56.68. That one isn’t bad at all right?

Hubby and I are movie fanatics and this player is really perfect for us. This portable DVD player will surely keep our favorite multimedia close at hand especially on long trips. Anyway, visit Digitalframez.com if you want to have your own portable DVD player or portable 10 inch DVD player.

Storage Bins Are Very Useful Here At Home

When it comes to organization and arranging our things here at home, storage bins are very important to me and it is something we always have in each room. It provides us a very easy way to store and retrieve any unwanted objects. We have several coloured bins for systematic way of storing all our small and unused items. I find it very practical and wise because it allows anyone here at home to easily identify the right bins to look for our specific items.

Seriously, I couldn’t imagine my life without it. These storage bins helped me a lot in my organization here at home. Each person musts have these storage bins in their respective houses.

My First Belly Dancing Class Here In France

This evening, I had my first belly dancing class here in Bordeaux, France. Eversince I arrived here, I've been searching on the internet for belly dancing classes nearby but it is very difficult to find one. I don't know why. I found this belly dancing class from the forum here in France. Ouff, I am very happy when I first received an email from one of the students in this class giving me all the informations I need. I was a little bit hesitant late this afternoon if I'd come or not but I finally decided to come.


Our belly dance teacher is Miss Caroline Chatel. She's very graceful really. The room is quite small for us as there are more than 15 students I guess total but all of them were very warm and friendly. Honestly, my entire body is in pain when I got back here at home. I am very happy and I am very glad that I am doing belly dancing again. I seriously can't wait to have my next class on saturday.

Silver - A Precious Metal

Silver - has long been valued as a precious metal and used in currency, ornaments and jewellery, as well as utensils. Jewelries and silverware are made from sterling silver or standard silver. It is also used in medals and musical instruments like flute. These are some of the examples on how silver is used. Silver in general costs lesser than gold. Not bad to purchase silver and to make it as an investment right? If you want to purchase Silver Bullion, do it at Monex Deposit Company. This company is america’s trusted name when it comes to precious metals for more than 40 years. Well, interesting isn’t it? For infos, call them at 1-800-444-8317 or simply check their website at monex.com

Wedding Preps

Wedding is getting closer. In general, the bride and the groom should be very busy in managing everything. But on our case, it's hubby's parents who are very busy with the preparation. Well, normal as the venue is closer to their place. I am very thankful because I am always dreaming to have a religious wedding and voila, it will be happening next weekend at the small castle. Feeling ko were the version of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes hehehe. Feeling only okay?



Maman and mammy


Our give-away

Last weekend, they were working very hard in preparing the give-aways for the guests. Here in france, their tradition is to give dragées but instead of following the common tradition, we decided a chocolate in the form of bouchon or wine cork with liquor inside when eaten. We came out with this idea as France is a known country when it comes to wine. Maman and mammy (hubby's grandma) were working with the bouchons while papa was busy in working the place cards. Piictures attached were taken by Papa.

My Workplace

My good friend Bless, tagged me and is very curious to see how my workplace looks like here at home. Voila, here it is my friend. There are not so many things on the table because I don't like it when the table is full as it is very difficult for me to do the cleaning when there are lots of stuff on the table. I'm very lazy and when I am cleaning, I want it to be fast and quick sans hassle kumbaga. A laptop is a must of course with speakers and webcam, lampshade at the side, my Elle magazine too is always on my table and the little notes or reminders infront of me. Sorry it's a little bit messy or simple.


My Workplace

Can I view how your workplace looks like beautiful ladies? I am very curious. But if you don't want to show it, it's okay for me too. I'll be very willing to respect your privacy *wink*

Our Garage Storage Cabinets

Do you know that majority of the people here in France have small cars? Why? One of the many reason is that it is very difficult to find a place here where it is possible to park one’s car. There are parking lots available of course but the parking fee is really expensive. People have their own garage but it is good only for 1 car. French people give importance to the spaces here no matter how small the area is. Here at home, we have our own garage and I will honestly tell you that storage space has always been a problem for us. It has changed a little bit now because of the garage storage cabinets we purchased. So far, these cabinets are the best storage system we have in our garage and I will definitely say that these cabinets are really the best way to clean out and organize a cluttered garage.
