Motherhood, Women's Fashion / 17.08.2016

Dressing up and wearing high heels used to be two of my favorite things. I used to own different kinds of shoes to go with whatever outfit I was in the mood for - strappy sandals, wedge espadrilles, sequined pumps, snakeskin peep-toe heels, studded sandals, suede ankle boots, knee-high boots - you name it, I have it. But motherhood came and changed all that (no complains and definitely no regrets). Since giving birth to my 2 beautiful kids, flats...

Motherhood / 11.08.2016

In the Philippines, where I grew up, parents usually celebrate the baby's monthly birthday during his/her first year of life. They would usually prepare a few entrees and a cake (and, sometimes, other desserts) that they will share with the whole family. When my daughter was born, it was just my husband and me, so I opted to just dine out every month instead of cooking. We decided to do the same thing with my son's monthly birthday,...

My daughter has always been a good sleeper. She started sleeping through the night when she was 2.5 months. Even when we were weaning her off swaddling, she still did great. When she was sick, she'd just sleep soundly. We only had to do one thing - and that is to rock her to sleep. Yes, my daughter had been rocked to sleep since she was born. When she arrived, it was just me and my husband. We...

If you've read one of my earlier posts, you'd know that I managed to get through my pregnancies without having to buy maternity clothes. And it's not because my belly was so small that I didn't even have to; I just didn't want to. Why? First, they're expensive; and second (at least for me), there's not much variety. Instead of spending money on something I know I won't be able to use after I deliver, I...

While I wish these commissions were enough to let me stay at home with my kids, they're really for paying the fees to keep this site up and running. Thank you for your continued support! When I got pregnant with my daughter, just like most first-time moms, I knew nothing about motherhood. I didn't know what stuff...

Kid's Fashion, Motherhood / 28.07.2016

It was one of those we're-running-late days because I didn't wake up early enough. And if you're a working mom like me, you'd know that waking up an hour before you're supposed to leave doesn't work anymore. In between taking a shower and getting ready for work, preparing healthy breakfast, changing diapers and clothes (and sometimes shortly after you've changed their clothes, they'd manage to get them dirty again), brushing those tiny teeth, fixing your daughter's...

Motherhood / 27.07.2016

My journey to motherhood started 3 years ago. It was the end of October 2013 when we found out that we’re having a baby. I can still remember how excited we were back then. I've always wanted to have 2-3 kids but I wasn't expecting it to happen this fast. A few months after the birth of our precious daughter, we’ve been blessed with a baby boy. Isn’t it perfect? And that’s when everything started to change. I...
