Arts and Crafts, Christmas, Motherhood / 08.12.2016

Since my daughter started going to the daycare, I feel like I owe all her teachers A LOT for looking after her while I work. So I always make an effort to know that I appreciate everything they do. I would always say thank you to them whenever I pick my kids up from school; and I would always grab the opportunity to give them something whenever there's an occasion - Teacher's Appreciation Day, Moving Up Day,...

My daughter has been enjoying finger and hand painting (my son doesn't appreciate it yet); sure it's messy but it gives her the chance to explore. When she was younger though, she hated having dirty hands and would always cry at school (not at home) whenever they'd have a painting activity. But now that she's older, she's starting to like it. A couple of...

Christmas, Shopping / 02.12.2016

I hope you enjoyed all the great Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals that started last weekend. I took advantage of these awesome deals and used Ebates; so I know I will get some money back with all the shopping that I did. And I couldn't be any happier with the fact that I'm done with my Christmas shopping. Big YAY for that!!! But for those of you who aren't and still thinking what to give that special man in your...

Travel / 30.11.2016

I LOVE fall foliage; it is one of my favorite things about fall, so I planned for us to go somewhere nice where we can enjoy the fall colors especially since my parents are visiting from the Philippines. This is a perfect time to show them around. When planning for a trip, I always take into consideration the schedule of my kids; I always have to work around their nap and bed time. Harpers Ferry National...

Motherhood, Reflections / 21.11.2016

Every Thanksgiving, I always say that I'm thankful for family, friends, and all those kinds of serious stuff. That has been always true but this year, to make it fun, I've decided to turn the spotlight on to the little things that I am thankful for this year. Hot showers - Growing up in Manila where having water heaters isn't a necessity but a luxury, I take comfort in the fact that the water I am showering...

Review, Shopping / 11.11.2016

Note: I may receive commissions from clicks or purchases made through links in this post. I experienced online shopping for the first time when I arrived here in the U.S. and I immediately fell in love with how convenient it is. I love everything about online shopping!!! I love how I don't have to go through numerous racks of clothes to find what I want in my size. I love how I know right away how much I'd...

Women's Fashion / 09.11.2016

I love classic timeless closet pieces like a white button-down shirt, light-washed jeans, a pair of white sneakers, classic beige pants, and the list goes on. But I am also in constant search of those printed pieces that I can pair with the classic pieces that I have for a more fun look. And this gingham pants that I found on clearance does the perfect job. I usually store my pants in one of those plastic containers that can...
