Motherhood / 19.08.2016

My daughter has always been scared of the water. She doesn't like the pool or beach at all, even fountains (I think the only water she likes is the water from the faucet when she's taking a bath). No matter how we tried to entertain her (give her a toy, show her how much we're enjoying it, etc.) while in it, she would always be anxious, would cling to me and fuss so our pool or beach time would always be a...

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...

Kid's Fashion / 15.08.2016

I've always wanted to rock cropped tops but I wasn't one of the lucky ones who have been blessed with well-toned abs (I know! I know! I have to work really hard if I am determined to have one but, you know, food always gets in the way). So when I saw a set of cropped top and skirt for kids in Peppermint (store from Manila), I knew I had to buy it for my daughter. Outfit details Cropped...

Let me just warn you, I am not an expert with regards to makeup. Just like most of you, I am just someone who is fascinated by it. It just so happened that I was able to get my hands on the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Sample Kit (from Sephora). So why not have some fun playing with it and share with you what I thought, right? I will do a 3-part review;  one per panel - the Purples...

Women's Fashion / 12.08.2016

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you're having a good day! It's the hubby's birthday today so we're taking him out for dinner. Nothing fancy; just him, the kids, and me in a simple Japanese restaurant nearby that I just recently discovered. But still, I decided to dress up. It's better to be overdressed than underdressed, right? Peplum is one of my favorites because it's always flattering for anyone (as long as you get the right kind). It hugs your curves in all the right...

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,...

Shopping / 08.08.2016

Last week, my husband had told my son's teacher that I am the "Queen of Bargains" when I told her where I got my Apple Watch bands (I'll be sharing that with you soon) so I decided to share with you my cheap finds! I hope you find them useful! Recently, Carter's had a really good sale. All the pajamas are 50% off + free shipping (no minimum), and I have a 25% off coupon which...

Beauty / 06.08.2016

I used to have oily face during the summer months and dry face in winter. I've tried several different moisturizers but nothing worked. Every few months, I would try to find a new moisturizer in the hopes of solving my skin problem. I was in the market for a new moisturizer and I heard about La Mer. To be honest, when I first heard about the brand, I told myself I won't pay that much for a...
