Motherhood, Reflections / 28.10.2016

Last weekend, my husband and I watched the movie Bad Moms. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this movie, it is about 3 overworked and under-appreciated moms who are pushed beyond their limits and ditched their conventional responsibilities for a jolt of long overdue freedom, fun, and comedic self-indulgence. You can read more about it here. I liked the movie because the story is very close to my heart, not because I am overworked...

Happy Wednesday, lovelies! I hope everyone is having a great week so far! I am excited about our post today because this is our first Guest Post. Our very first guest author is Veronica Miller, from Reviews Academy. Her interests include getting to know people and helping them, reading, and writing (which got her into blogging). Outside of blogging, she does illustrations and takes classes to become a Graphic Designer. I really liked working with her for today's post...

Motherhood, Review / 18.10.2016

KidloLand provided us free subscription in exchange for my review. As always, all opinions expressed here are honest and 100% my own. As a mom, I am very strict when it comes to screen time. I don't let my kids use gadgets to play games on. In fact, they know that cellphones are only for calling and taking pictures. I don't let my kids watch videos all the time; I limit their screen time - they are only allowed to watch videos for...

Last Sunday, our family went on our first apple picking trip. Other than it was our first, it was special because my parents were able to join us. They are currently visiting from the Philippines and mainly went here to celebrate my son's first birthday with us which is very sweet! Go ahead and check out his Safari-Themed First Birthday Party for some fun ideas, if you're planning your own. Hopefully, they'll be able to join us again...

Beauty, Motherhood, Review / 08.10.2016

As a mom, your day and energy can easily be consumed by just taking care of your kids and entertaining them; so it's not that hard to take yourself for granted in the process. To be honest, I am one of those moms who easily gets lost in all the craziness that happens every day in their life. Luxury for me these days are being able to take a shower, put my moisturizer and lotion on,...

I grew up in the Philippines where the only seasons we've had are summer and spring; but ever since I lived here in the United States, fall has quickly become my favorite season. I love how beautiful this season is, especially when the trees started changing colors; I love the crisp air; I enjoy having to dress up in layers (something I didn't get to do back in the Philippines) but still not feel as restricted as you do...

Events, Motherhood / 29.09.2016

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...

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...
