With my oldest child saying goodbye to toddlerhood, I can’t help but feel very emotional. I’ve asked myself countless of times… where did those 4 precious years go? I cannot, for the life of me, believe she just turned 4 when I seriously feel like I’ve just given birth to her yesterday. It may sound like a cliché but that is exactly how I feel right now. I never believed people when they say that kids do grow up too fast; now I do! To celebrate the 4 AMAZING years my daughter has given me, I want to share with…

Okay.. I know this post is supposed to be done on the first week of July but what can I say? The whole “time flies” kicked me in the b*tt literally. Between all the birthday party preparations for my daughter, my full time work, and some stuff I’m planning for the blog, I didn’t realize it’s time to do my Instagram Roundup post. And since I took a couple of weeks off in May, I decided to do May & June together. Let’s not keep you waiting some more – here are my favorite Instagram moments in May & June.…

I’ve been very open about my love-hate relationship with sleeveless blazers (or sleeveless vests). I love how stylish they are and how they bring any outfit you wear them with to a whole new level; but they don’t really do anything to keep you warm (during the colder months). However, when I saw this sleeveless blazer online, I fell in love so I had to get it. I got it on sale though so I feel really great about it. Today, I will be sharing how to wear sleeveless blazer in Summer. The great thing about wearing a sleeveless blazer…

Hosting a princess theme baby shower? Planning a baby shower, just like any other event, starts with the invitations. Your invitation sets the tone for your event. Is your baby shower going to be formal or casual? Is it going to be elegant or simple? Finding the perfect baby shower invitation is a must for me (and most likely any host). It has to have all the needed details for the party; more importantly, it should match the party’s theme.

In a few weeks, my daughter is turning 4 and I seriously cannot believe how she has grown up so fast right before my eyes. But before I officially say goodbye to her toddlerhood, we must celebrate 4th of July first. I grew up in the Philippines and have only been here in the U.S. for a few years, but I seriously love wearing patriotic 4th of July outfits. Maybe because I just love the color combination of red, blue, and white so much. Today, I rounded up some cute & easy 4th of July outfit ideas you can certainly wear…

My kids’ favorite area at their classroom has always been their sensory table. They’ve always spent a lot of time in there. I cannot see why not; it’s fun, exciting, and a great way for them to explore the world around them. I’ve always wanted to get them one; but I didn’t want to spend another $100 for it especially when we already got them a sand table. So when my Dad arrived from the Philippines last March, we utilized his carpentry skills and asked him to do a DIY sensory table for the kids. Today, I will be sharing…

It has been a while since I’ve posted in here. I took my much needed break to focus on other areas of my life and other aspects of this blog that I haven’t worked on in a while. I hope you had an amazing Mother’s Day and Memorial Day festivities with your family & friends. I know I did some shopping for the past few weeks. Check out what I bought for myself on Mother’s Day (I was disappointed with some of them); and all the shoes I got in May! Today, I want to share with you one of my…

I must admit I am not good with makeup at all! Which is probably the reason why I don’t wear makeup often; I only do so during special occasions. And whenever I do, it’s usually very simple. But if there’s one thing that I wear a lot, it’s lipstick. And if you’ve noticed, I LOVE wearing bold lip colors. But from time to time, I find myself wanting a good nude lipstick. So today, I am sharing my latest find – a couple of Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in neutral shades. A couple of years ago, I was able to try some…

April has been a crazy month especially if we’re going to talk about the weather. It didn’t feel like spring until late April. We had one weekend when it was really nice and warm so we took advantage of it and went to Brownie’s Beach (Bay Front Park) in Maryland; and then it went back to chilly. It was also a month when I went crazy with shopping. Let’s kick off the month of May by sharing my favorite Instagram moments. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram so you’re always up-to-date on what I’m wearing and what I’m doing! – Note:…
