BABY SHOWER | PRETTY IN PINK


September 11, 2011, Sunday - We had a Baby Shower for parents to be, Miguel and Janice.
We had it at The Shop Around the Corner. It was themed after Pretty in Pink but unfortunately not all guests came in pink hahaha! I did wear pink though and thank you for people who came in pink wink. It was a perfect day - got balloons, mallows, cookies -although we were not in our spot (table where we used to sit and eat at TSATC) nothing much actually but it was I believe successful. One of the highlights of the baby shower was Baby Shower Pinoy Henyo. Thank you Boss Gio, TL Jep, Lorie and Rey and Bullet. Thank you for all the things I have learned here. Let me charge this to experience. Cheers




Trivia: Baby Shower from Wiki 


In some countries, a baby shower is a way to celebrate the pending or recent birth of a child by presenting gifts to the parents at a party. The term "shower" is often assumed to mean that the expectant mother is "showered" with gifts.


Traditionally, baby showers were given only for the family's first child, and both men and women attended. The original intent was for women to share wisdom and lessons on the art of becoming a mother. Over time, it has become common to hold them for subsequent or adopted children. It is not uncommon for a parent to have more than one baby shower, such as one with friends and another with co-workers.

POWERFUL MOTORCADE


So this is it. Sam and Monique (Chalebrations official partner for party needs and more) turned 1 last September 8. Yey! Happy 1st year. Way to go! One year down and forever more.


We started our day with a Thanksgiving Mass, then had the POWERFUL MOTORCADE in the afternoon. It was a sunny day and fruitful, actually. All our efforts have been paid.
It was my first time to join a motorcade, well for Chalebrations - and it was really amazing.
I believe there were 12-15 cars/vehicles who joined the motorcade (special shout out to them, you know who you are). We started at Batangas City Sports Complex/Center then moved to SM Batangas area then Balagtas. Sorry for the traffic, i know. Of course, thank you for the policeman who escorted/guided us all thru out.





After of which, we had our powerful snacks/merienda - Thank you. It was indeed satisfying.



Then show from the clowns, magicians and mascot!! hahahah

Loot bags for clients who inquired on that same day.

Thank you for people who came and supported Sam and Monique.See you again this December. hihihi

& there was Mickey!! xx

Hello friends, I'm back and I want to ask this question - How many pairs of shoes do you have? Mine, I think I have 10 pairs all in all. hahaha!

For the love of fabulous shoes, she's now making her own collections which will soon be out in the market.

And what I really really like about this shoe-line is shes's making BRIDAL SHOES too for all the BRIDE-DOLLS & BRIDEZILLAS  out there. 
Anything you can think of can be negotiable and designs are imaginable. Sky's the limit. Affordable yet fab plus matibay!
I really cant wait for this and I know you are too. 
SOON - www.shoesandsenses.com 
(shoesandsenses photos are from www.shoesandsenses.blogspot.com)


But have you ever thought where did this come from? Here's what wikipedia told me hahaha!

The earliest known shoes are sandals dating from about 8000 to 7000 BC and found in Oregon, USA in 1938.[5] 

The world's oldest leather shoe, made from a single piece of cowhide laced with a leather cord along seams at the front and back, was found in a cave in Armenia in 2008 and is believed to date to 3,500 BC.

Ötzi the Iceman's shoes, dating to 3,300 BC, featured brown bearskin bases, deerskin side panels, and a bark-string net, which pulled tight around the foot.

However, tanned leather, the material most commonly used for making shoes, does not normally last for thousands of years, so shoes were probably in use long before this. Physical anthropologist Erik Trinkaus believes he has found evidence that the use of shoes began in the period between about 40,000 and 26,000 years ago, based on the fact that the thickness of the bones of the toes (other than the big toe) decreased during this period, on the premise that wearing shoes resulted in less bone growth, resulting in shorter, thinner toes.

The earliest designs were simple affairs, often mere "foot bags" of leather to protect the feet from rocks, debris, and cold. Since shoes use more leather than sandals, their use was more common in cold climates. 

By the Middle Ages, turn-shoeshad been developed with toggled flaps or drawstrings to tighten the leather around the foot for a better fit. As Europe gained in wealth and power, fancy shoes became status symbols. 

Toes became long and pointed, often to ridiculous proportions. Artisans created unique footwear for rich patrons, and new styles developed. Eventually the modern shoe, with a sewn-on sole, was devised. Since the 17th century, most leather shoes have used a sewn-on sole. This remains the standard for finer-quality dress shoes today. 

Until around 1800, shoes were made without differentiation for the left or right foot. Such shoes are now referred to as "straights".

Only gradually did the modern foot-specific shoe become standard.

Since the mid-20th Century, advances in rubber, plastics, synthetic cloth, and industrial adhesives have allowed manufacturers to create shoes that stray considerably from traditional crafting techniques. 

Leather, which had been the primary material in earlier styles, has remained standard in expensive dress shoes, but athletic shoes often have little or no real leather. Soles, which were once laboriously hand-stitched on, are now more often machine stitched or simply glued on.

Now, let's talk about parts of shoes - also from wiki! hahahah thank you!

Parts
Sole
The bottom of a shoe is called the sole.

Insole
See also: Shoe insert and Arch support
The insole is the interior bottom of a shoe, which sits directly beneath the foot under the footbed (also known as sock liner). 

The purpose of insole is to attach to the lasting margin of the upper, which is wrapped around the last during the closing of the shoe during the lasting operation. 

Insoles are usually made of cellulosic paper board or synthetic non woven insole board. Many shoes have removable and replaceable footbeds.

Extra cushioning is often added for comfort (to control the shape, moisture, or smell of the shoe) or health reasons (to help deal with defects in the natural shape of the foot or positioning of the foot during standing or walking).
Basically, this is a main part of shoes which can absorb foot sweat. Footbeds should typically use foam cushioning sheets like latex and EVA, which provide good wearing comfort of the shoe.

Outsole

Parts of a shoe
The outsole is the layer in direct contact with the ground. Dress shoes often have leather or resin rubber outsoles; casual or work-oriented shoes have outsoles made of natural rubber or a synthetic material like Polyurethane. 

The outsole may comprise a single piece, or may be an assembly of separate pieces of different materials. 

Often the heel of the sole has a rubber plate for durability and traction, while the front is leather for style. 
Specialized shoes will often have modifications on this design: athletic or so called cleated shoes like soccer, rugby, baseball and golf shoes have spikes embedded in the outsole to grip the ground.

Midsole
The layer in between the outsole and the insole that is typically there for shock absorption. Some types of shoes, like running shoes, have another material for shock absorption, usually beneath the heel of the foot, where one puts the most pressure down. Different companies use different materials for the midsoles of their shoes. Some shoes may not have a midsole at all.

Heel
The bottom rear part of a shoe is the heel. Its function is to support the heel of the foot. They are often made of the same material as the sole of the shoe. This part can be high for fashion or to make the person look taller, or flat for a more practical and comfortable use.

Vamp/upper
Every shoe has an upper part that helps hold the shoe onto the foot. In the simplest cases, such as sandals or flip-flops, this may be nothing more than a few straps for holding the sole in place. Closed footwear, such as boots, trainers and most men's shoes, will have a more complex upper. This part is often decorated or is made in a certain style to look attractive.

Lateral/medial
The outside part of the shoe is referred to as the lateral and the inside facing part of the shoe is the medial. This can be in reference to either the outsole or the vamp.

Welt
Main article: Welt (shoe)
A welt is a strip of leather, rubber, or plastic that is stitched to the upper and insole of a shoe, as an attach-point for the sole.

The end.
