Patek Philippe For The Intense Watch Collector

This is the last for my stocking filler posts and to answer the question which watch is befitting for an heirloom, choose a Patek Philippe creation. It's an inheritance that is uber-exclusive and with a sizeable amount.
However, you need not pay for the original price when you can own an authentic one for a much reduced price. As it is the current trend now in buying luxury, purchasing a pre-owned Patek Philippe watch is the best way to assure you are buying an original timepiece without the sky high amount.

Essential Watches of Beverly Hills sells new and used Patek Philippe watches. You can be assured you get your money's worth because each purchase is marked accordingly - whether it is new or pre-owned. Yes, including the important documents such as guaranty. And if you suddenly have a change of heart, do have an excellent return policy rule.

"You don't own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation." goes the luxury brand's adage. The holiday season gives you the perfect reason to think of an heirloom. Brad Pitt collects these watches. Shouldn't you as well?

Stocking Filler: Cartier

Finally! I was able to vacuum and mop the house. I've been meaning to do that for two days now but oh gosh, holiday stress is catching up on me.

Now I am ready (and guilt free!) to meet the girls for a little tea party. Since we all have crazy schedules for the month, we decided to give our little gifts for each one later in the afternoon. We will just do it all quickly because like me, they are still frantically looking for their partner's Christmas present. One of them accidentally  read her husband's bucket list and it included owning an authentic Cartier watch. Since she knows I am well acquainted with online shopping deals, she asked for some clues. More specifically where to buy them cheaper with a warranty at the very least.

Oh I can't wait to tell her about Essential Watches. I learned about the site earlier today and it looks very customer friendly with wide range of authentic luxury time pieces. I gotta go now and blow dry my hair. Don't want to be late for my first Christmas party this year. Ciao!

Top Tips For Girls #2

How to get sleep AND be happy
(image from Google)

**I was recently taught about the Horizontal Rule: when you are horizontal, you are not allowed to think about anything tha requires a solution. This is because in the middle of the night, your left side, problem solving brain is fast asleep and your right side, drama-queen brain is wide awake. .......Instead, the only thing you are allowed to do is to count your blessings or think of five things you are grateful for that day. If you are still awake, you have to think of five things you were grateful for yesterday and the day before and the day before and so on. Not only does this actually get me to sleep, it makes me a happier, nicer person.


I recently bought a book called Top Tips For Girls by Kate Reardon. She is currently a contributing editor for Vanity Fair. The book is a compilation of real, funny advice from real women for real life. I will be sharing some of those tips on this blog, over at Coffee, Pearls, and A View, and at Kero's Celebration Face Book Fan Page -- all because girls don't have to learn the hard way. ((^_^))

Holiday Gift Guide: Cartier Replica Watch

We all dream of owning at least one luxury item. May it be signature bag,  sunglasses, or shoes. For many of my friends, they want a branded time piece. Most especially when I attended the 2010 Cartier Exhibit last month and showed them photos of the luxury watches. Their desire escalated and it seems they all want to find one come Christmas morning lol!

Well I have good news for them now as I found a website specializing on replica watches. On a visit to their website, I found Cartier Replica Watches that look exactly the same as the photos I took from the exhibit! Apparently, the site offers the Best Replica Watches available. They have the technology that can do detailed and quality  imitations of all luxury brands such as Rolex and Breitling.

Let's face it, we all want a 15-seconds fame. Arriving at a Christmas Party with an elegant luxury watch will get their attention. Nobody needs to know it is a Cartier Ballon Bleu Replica.

That is going to be my New Years resolution. I will vow to be addicted to savings. =)

I received an e-mail last week informing that The Entertainer Family 2011 is now out. We have never bought any copy but I really want to try if it's really the best loyalty book around.

The Entertainer is a dining and activity guide around UAE. It is priced for 350AED and you can save over 155,000AED with its 2 for 1 vouchers. Adventures such as Wild Wadi, Aquaventure, and Ski Dubai are always included but I hope they also added coupons for the new Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi lol!

While we are on the subject of saving money and using coupons, you my dear readers can check out the best sweet tomatoes coupons around the net, all listed for your convenience in souplantation coupons.

Well I gotta go now and try to think ways of convincing Hubby to buy our copy of The Entertainer.Ciao!

Silk Pink Tie For Hubby

We will be attending a wedding next month and the motif is pink and white. The ladies for the wedding entourage will be wearing white cocktail dresses. And men will have to wear something pink - it could be a tie, shirt, or formal jacket. Naturally, my ever-practical husband chose to wear pink tie so he can still use it for their upcoming company dinner party in late December. That way our purchase will not be for one time use.

Shopping malls these days are packed with holiday shoppers so I am dreading a trip just to purchase for mens tie. Fortunately, there is S Buckingham, a website especially for men's accesories. I can browse and shop online at the comfort of our home. Moreover, the silk tie gift set we purchased from them last month certainly did not disappoint.

I am tempted to buy this pre-tied silk bow tie but I am not sure how Hubby would react. 
He likes to dress up with fun though so I will have to ask =)

Anyway, here are my choices from S Buckinghams mens silk pink tie collection.

Mens Pink Navy Blue Polka Dot woven Silk Tie. 
I think this will also be very suited for the New Year dinner.

 Or this stylish Mens Pink Paisley Woven Silk Tie

Since this is a formal event, I will add mens cufflinks uk to the purchase. I narrowed choices to these.

I will only need Hubby's choice and approval tonight to check out our order.

Shopping For Perfume

'Tis the season of gift giving (and frantic shopping lol)!

Hubby lets me take care of all the gift shopping but every year he has one little request: that I purchase two-three extra things to wrap just in case we forgot to include some people on our Christmas gift list. For this year I am preparing to wrap lovely perfumes for those extra gifts. A site called provides wholesale of celebrity inspired perfumes. See examples of their perfumes below.

 Blue Dream inspired by Blue Glow by J.Lo
Unit Price $3.75 / Package Price (3pcs) $11.25

Paris Dreams Inspired by Can Can By Paris Hilton
Unit Price $3.75 / Package price (3 pcs) $11.25

Based in Los Angeles, California, also sells wholesale clothing such as tops, pants and jeans, dresses, and skirts, including plus sizes. Visit them for chic fashion that won't break the bank. Happy shopping!

Aigner Toiletries

 If you are a horse-lover, then you will be very pleased to stay in Jumeirah The Meydan. Each brilliantly designed room is rich in leather and in keeping up with the luxurious pamapering and horse-theme, the 5-star hotel provides posh Aigner In Leather toiletries.

Just for a brief history, the cult brand Aigner began with the great fashion designer Etienne Aigner. He presented his first leather hand bag in New York and caused a major sensation. From then on, Aigner's exclusive leather creations were coveted all over the world.

The fashion house describes itself as German brand with Italian soul: precision of the German and with Tuscan tradition.  They derive themes from equestrian and so much is their devotion for the wild and free that back in the 60's, they organized The Aigner Racing Days.  They even went as far as to design the the Aigner "A" logo in the shape of a horseshoe.

Aigner In Leather scent subtly reminds me of CK Eternity (while Hubby thinks it reminds him of Virgin Vie Seduction) -- only that it is more refined, deep, and sensual. I love that the hint of wood and leather was infused in a manner that provides calming effect.
