Growing up, part of what gets me excited about Christmas are the family traditions that I get to do with my parents. I always look forward to doing those year after year. And I still do! I think I always will, even though I don’t get to do it with them anymore. Now that I am a mom of 2 adorable kids, it is my turn to make sure that we get these Christmas traditions going and to look for new memorable Christmas traditions that we can do as a family. Today, I rounded up memorable Christmas tradition ideas that…

Can you believe Christmas is just 4 weeks away?! As you probably already know, I love Christmas! Because what’s not to love about it?

It is truly the most wonderful time of the year to make special memories with the ones who truly matter, your family. Today, I am sharing how to make…

With Thanksgiving a week away, if you’re like me, chances are you’re all set for your Thanksgiving plans except for your outfit. And having to think of what your entire family is going to wear on Thanksgiving is probably already too much for you to deal with, so let me try to make things easier for you. Today, I rounded up my favorite fall outfits that are super easy to recreate to give you some inspiration. That’s 1 less outfit for you to think about! Here are my Thanksgiving outfit ideas!

When I was a child, I had a huge collection of fairy tale books which are all about the dreamy stories of these beautiful princesses – Cinderella, Belle, Jasmine, and so on. I loved reading them all the time and believed everything I read in these books. Sometimes, my cousins and I would even re-enact these stories during our playtime. Needless to say, these books had a huge impact on me. I grew up thinking that life is pretty much similar to these fairy tales; but of course it wasn’t long enough until I found out that it’s not. It…

It’s almost Thanksgiving and you’ve probably seen a lot of posts about being thankful for all the blessings they’ve received, their family and friends. While I am also absolutely grateful for all these things and more, this year, I want to focus on the bad things that happened to me. It’s not every day you get to hear someone say “Be thankful for the bad things in your life”. It’s hard to be thankful for them when they hurt you, when they make you live your life in fear, when they make you angry, or when they leave you devastated.

Growing up, Christmas has been my favorite holiday! There’s just nothing better than seeing all the festive decorations, hearing the Christmas songs, having family dinner, opening Christmas presents, getting together and catching up with all my relatives, and of course, dressing up. With November rolling around and the temperature FINALLY dropping, I couldn’t help but get excited with all the Christmas feels! And that got me to start early. Which is why I already finished putting up all my Christmas decors; and I’m also done shopping Christmas outfits…

We found out that my son has a severe peanut allergy on his first birthday. We were given an EpiPen prescription because there’s a risk that he’ll have anaphylactic shock if he ingests peanut. We immediately banned peanut inside our house as soon as we found out. It took us a while to get used to it because no one else in the family has an allergy (and I hope it stays that way); but we certainly tried our best to make sure he doesn’t come in contact with peanut. And I absolutely hoped it won’t ever come to that,…

How is it that we’re already in November? This year is really flying by! October has always been an eventful month for us since I became a mom, because of all the fun fall activities that we always try to do with the kids. And this year is pretty much the same, considering we’ve yet to go to a fall festival and enjoy the fall foliage. So my Instagram posts for the past month is a good combination of the outfits I wore and the activities that we did. I know I said in my previous post that I’ll be…
