Since One Awesome Momma had just recently moved from Wordpress.com to a self-hosted site, why don't we celebrate it for a bit? And what better way to do a celebration than to do a post about a party, right? Let me share with you all the details of my son's safari-themed birthday party that we threw for him last Saturday. Photo taken from here. Location - I didn't want to host the party at home since we only live...

I've been very particular with what my kids eat. While my daughter can eat anything (even unhealthy ones once in a while), my son can only eat the good food - no junk food, only healthy stuff. Whenever we eat something that's not healthy, he usually just stands there watching us - I know that sounds cruel but I just didn't want him to consume anything unhealthy until he's 1. That doesn't mean that he'll be eating unhealthy...

Whoever said that "Accessories can either make or break an outfit" knows what they were talking about. I believe that accessories are the key in creating different looks for the same pieces of clothing. You can wear the exact same tee shirt and jeans numerous times but look different every time by pairing it with different accessories. Wear them with a pair of sneakers and a hat for a casual look or you could wear a leather jacket over the shirt and put your favorite pair of...

My son turned 1 recently and if you don't know it yet, I wrote him an apology letter; you can read the letter here. Of course, we had a family dinner to celebrate his birthday. Other than spending time with my family, dressing up the kids is my next favorite thing during special occasions. I chose a checked shirt paired with a yellow twill shorts for my son; each less than $15. I can't believe how time flies; it feels...

To My Second Born Child, I can't believe it has been exactly 1 year ago (already). While Daddy and I were on our way to the airport to pick up Papa from an almost 24-hour flight from Manila, you decided you wanted to welcome him as well; that's when the contractions started. I ignored them because I thought they weren't the real thing. As we sat in the arrival area waiting for Papa, the contractions became regular and stronger. I tried to be calm...

Although there has been a drop in the temperature last week for a few days, it was just temporary. We are still enjoying Summer and I plan to enjoy every bit of it. This $15 striped culottes that I wore yesterday is just perfect for the warm Summer days and the Momma duties that I had to perform. I brought my daughter to her first dental appointment yesterday and she wanted to be carried from the parking lot to the dentist's office. I also...

We had dinner with my mother-in-law one weekend so I had my daughter wear the tutu skirt given by her lola (grandmother). I paired it with a simple white tee with "Perfect Princess" written on it and put her hair up in a pigtail. There's something about pigtails, I feel like she looks so much cuter wearing one; so whenever I want her to look extra cute, I put her hair up in pigtails. Her lola (grandmother) gave...

The past couple of mornings have been pretty chilly; there is no doubt that Fall is just around the corner. With the changing season comes the need to update your wardrobe; this is absolutely the best time to do just that (what a good excuse to do some shopping)! No, you don't have to buy a  whole lot of new outfits; getting a few key pieces to pair with what you already have can, without a doubt, bring your old outfits back to life. But...

The kids had an End of Summer Bash Party at the daycare yesterday so it was an opportunity for me to wear my fuchsia a-line skirt. I really love everything about this skirt - the color is really nice, it hits me just a little bit below my knees which is perfect, it is very light and flowy which means I can move freely all day especially when it's time to dance at the party (yes, I...
