When I was younger, my parents would let me get away with not eating vegetables at all. And I guess that is why I didn’t develop my love for them. Now that I’ve grown up and have 2 kids of my own, even though I know I have to eat healthy (not just for myself but for my family as well), I just couldn’t bring myself to eat vegetables because I don’t like their taste (seriously, I think I sound like a kid). While I eat a few vegetables like spinach, cabbage, string beans, carrots, and squash, I find myself avoiding them whenever…

One of the most common signs of teething for babies is drooling. Both of my kids started drooling as early as 3 months. While my daughter stopped drooling after her first set of teeth popped out when she was 7 months old; my son didn’t stop drooling at all! He’s been having a drooling fest even after he’s had his 6th tooth. He’d probably get 4-5 bibs soaked in a day; and I would always find myself using his burp cloths as bibs because he already used them all up. Although he’s no longer drooling as much as before these days. My son started wearing bibs…

I can’t believe that we are already heading towards the end of January which means winter will soon be over; and spring is just around the corner. Are you excited as much as I am? Although we do love it when snow falls because that allows us to stay outside for a bit with the kids and have some fun in the snow (we still haven’t gotten a ton of snow though), it just won’t be possible for us to spend a lot of time outside if the weather is freezing. The kids love the outdoors which makes the idea of spring…

I love cosmetics but I am not really good with putting makeup on. I can’t contour; I don’t know how to get that winged eyeliner look nor do I know how to perfectly blend my eyeshadow. I’ve tried watching Youtube tutorial videos and would follow each and every step they say you should do, but I would just always end up frustrated every single time. So when I discovered mineral makeup products a few years back, I was very ecstatic! Finally, I can put some makeup on without requiring the proper skills (that I cannot seem to have) to do so! Since then,…

I love adding fun pieces to my closet like this yellow crossback sweater that I recently got from Express. I like how chunky and flowy it is making it easy to move around into; which is also ideal for layering. I especially adore the fun and edgy combination of this crossback sweater paired with my faux leather leggings which has been my favorite leggings so far. Since this crossback sweater doesn’t have any prints on it, I can already see myself having fun pairing it with some of my printed leggings, like the plaid ones, or the aztec-printed ones, or even the polka-dotted ones,…

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! I wasn’t always fascinated with dresses. I grew up always wearing tops and jeans. I can still remember back in high school, I would always find myself wearing baggy shirts and jeans. You will never see me wearing dresses when I was younger. It wasn’t until…

Happy New Year! I hope you had a crazy and fun night ringing in the New Year with your loved ones. I know I did; we started potty training my daughter on New Year’s Eve, played the whole day, attended the NYE mass, then had dinner as a family. As soon as the kids went to bed, my parents, my husband and I had a few bottles of beer while we sang karaoke as we rang in 2017. The start of the New Year often entails people making resolutions and goals that they strive to accomplish by the end of the…
