Thinking about buying a new vehicle?

Finding your dream car or looking for the best deal should not be stressful or overwhelming. Even with several choices and questions in mind, it can be an exciting experience.

For most people, cars are the next biggest purchase they'll make after their homes. 

If you have your own family like me, having a car is very important. You need to drive the kids to and from school, errands, family activities, events, road trips, vacations, and a lot more.

There are several car buying tips out there and the most important one is:

Research is Key! 

Well, even if your car savvy, you can still get a bad deal without doing your research. 

Thankfully, it's very easy to research everything we need. There are several online resources that can help car shoppers as they do their research. 

I find one of the best destination for car shopping. From new and used vehicle listings, comparison tools and in-depth reviews - everything on their site is very helpful.  I love that they even have information and advice on safety and repair. 

This site can surely help in your next car purchase and find the vehicle that suits your needs. Check their lists of new and used cars to make your hunt a lot easier. 

Remember, settling on a new car is not supposed to be an overnight decision. So take your time.

Spend enough time researching the car market. Do it ahead of time. It's better to start shopping even before you need a new car. This way, you'll make more informed decisions and get the best deals. 

This way, when you visit a car dealer, you are armed with knowledge and information. You'll know the essential car features to consider that will help put your mind at ease. 

When it comes to purchasing a family car, safety is the number one concern. Aside from that, practicality and affordability are factors to consider too.

Also, make sure to consider all these:
  • Know your budget.
  • Negotiate the best deal. 
  • Arrange financing
  • Do a test drive.
Get you started on an exciting journey of purchasing a car and make car shopping part of your "fun things to do!"

I'd love to know your ideas. Share with me the most important vehicle feature or the best tip for getting a great deal.

Scholastic Book Buffet: our kind of buffet breakfast

This is my family's guilt-free buffet. Our book haul from Scholastic's warehouse book sale box-all-you-can promo.

All in all these books cost Php 6,000+. But we only paid Php 799! Such a steal!

Luckily, we live just a few minutes away from Scholastic warehouse. Still, we choose to be there early.

Arriving early means enjoying looking at all those books!

My tween and my teen are old enough to choose what they want to read. That means, no books will be left unread.

And here's what they got from the discounted shelves.

We always look forward to and get excited every time there's a Scholastic book sale. And I think we've been going to Scholastic warehouse for more than 5 years! This is the buffet we won't ever miss.

Just last December, we got these:

This place is heaven for book lovers and bargain hunters. So, do visit!

You have more days to grab the books you want. Sale runs from April 18 to June 18, 2017, from 9am-6pm. They're open daily from Monday to Sunday.

Here's the mechanics from their Facebook page:

Be a Diva: Put Your Wig On

I've wanted to change my hairstyle, perhaps try a different color or the new hair trend.

But I always avoid the risk of harmful chemicals from damaging my hair. Not to mention the cost of going to the salon for hair treatments.

Well, like everything else - there's a way! This is where Divatress comes in!

Divatress has hundreds of human hair lace front wig. I love that the wigs look so natural. Style choices are also endless - from short, long, wavy, straight, blue, red, Brazilian, ombre, braids, ponytails and a lot more you can think of.

Divatress can give you salon perfect hair in minutes every day. You can update your look and try different hairstyles. Plus, it's the healthiest option you can give your hair.

Here are some wigs that I fancy:

Brazilian Keratin Remi Lace Wig - Yaki 
hairstyle trend human wig celebrity-style
Remy Human Hair Wig - Fairlady

hair-color hair-treatment ombre salon wig-care
Dream Muse Swiss Lace Wig - Matilda
hairstyle-trend blonde blorenge balayage kylie-jenner
Dream Muse Swiss Lace Wig - Catherine

I can now consider grabbing a wig to conceal my natural hair issues (those gray hairs are starting). And there's no need to worry about bad hair days too. This is something I can do when summer ends.

Wearing a wig is now a trend - as many celebrities are sporting one (Hint: Check out some of Kylie Jenner’s Instagram posts).

So if you want to update your look, wearing a wig is the way to do it. You can experiment with different lengths and colors. You can even reinvent your look with a new human hair wig. And no need to worry about the discomfort that other wigs bring or wigs looking unnatural.

Check out the site and share with me which wig would you rock?
