Whether we like it or not, swimsuit season is just around the corner. It’s that time of the year when we usually feel pressured (especially us moms after giving birth to our precious little ones) to be in shape so we’ll look our best in our swimsuits. I don’t know about you, but I’m not gifted with the best metabolism there is; so I usually have to make an extra effort to work out to have that “perfect body”. But if you’re like me, you probably just don’t have the time to work out with everything you already have on…

When I found out that I was pregnant with my daughter 5 years ago, I was so excited! As you probably already know, I love fashion. Other than the fact that we’ve been planning for a baby (and hoping for a girl) back then, I knew I’m going to have so much fun shopping outfits for her and with her. Little did I know that I’m missing one important aspect of having a daughter – hairstyle – which I don’t know nothing about! I’ve never been good with hairstyles. Since I was young, I’ve only known 3 hairstyles – wearing…

Before I became a mom, I used to own an entire closet filled with shoes. I have a pair of for each color and every print I could think of. I have heels in stripes and leopard print; I have shoes with bows and feathers. I have classic heels and edgy ones. But I had to sell/donate almost everything to make room for my kids (I kept 3 of my favorite ones). And since then, every time I feel the need to buy a pair of shoes, I would always think how much wear I’d get out of them. I…

I can’t believe that the first quarter of 2018 is done just like that! The first 3 months of 2018 have been very eventful for me and my family. The kids pretty much spent most of the weekends of January and February attending their swim class; I made my daughter’s DIY wonder woman costume; we went to see Jurassic Quest when they were in town; my daughter has had to deal with mean friends;  my husband and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary (I have some tips on how to celebrate on a budget); and I found the cutest floral…

As a mom, one thing that I constantly ask myself is how to keep my kids from spilling liquids all over the place. This is mostly true for my son. Yes, we’ve tried those leak-proof sippy cups and they’re a lifesaver. However, because he thinks he’s such a “big boy” now, he won’t drink on closed sippy cups anymore (especially when he sees his older sister doing it so gracefully well). And when we’re out, I don’t know what’s up with these water bottles but somehow they look like a magical drinking instrument for him; because he always ignores his…

How was your weekend? How did you handle the time change? We woke up at 9 am last Sunday (how awesome right?), had breakfast, and decided to take the kids to an indoor playground all day. We thought if they didn’t take their nap, they’ll be in bed earlier than usual which would help them adjust with time change. And as I expected, they were in bed by 7:30 PM and my husband and I were in bed by 10 PM (earlier than we’re used to). But to my surprise, the time change STILL kicked our butts last Monday and…

Are you celebrating your wedding anniversary soon but on a tight budget? That’s totally understandable! After becoming a mom and having to pay daycare for 2 kids, I’ve always asked myself how to celebrate a wedding anniversary on a tight budget. Between the never-ending bills and expensive daycare, not to mention the lots of stuff that your kids need, you won’t always have a lot of extra cash lying around to be spent on a luxurious vacation. And sometimes, even if you do, you just feel guilty about spending it. But don’t you worry! Celebrating wedding anniversary doesn’t always have…

Last January, my daughter had an assignment in school. They needed to wear DIY superhero costumes. I asked her and she said she wanted to wear a wonder woman costume. Although I was VERY excited to make a superhero costume for her, I didn’t know how to make a toddler wonder woman costume. So I went to google and looked at several toddler wonder woman costumes available for sale and tried to imagine how I would turn the stuff she already has into a costume. Today, I’ll be sharing how to make a toddler wonder woman costume like a pro…

Happy Tuesday! How was your weekend? Did you do something fun this President’s Day weekend? Ours has been great! We mostly stayed at home and caught up with the household chores but we also spent some quality time with the kids. We went out on Sunday for our Post-Valentine’s Date. I don’t want to go out on the actual Valentine’s Day because of how busy it usually is, so we usually either go out before or after. Today, I’m here to share my new favorite sweater & a fun way to wear white jeans in winter! – There’s a giveaway…

My kids were both born with sensitive skin. During the first year of their lives, they both had eczema. We’ve tried numerous products but nothing helped their skin. We’ve had countless doctor visits to see if there’s anything out there that would help improve their skin; but we were prescribed with steroids Every.Single.Time. The thought of applying steroids on my children’s skin made me feel uncomfortable, so I didn’t stop searching for that one product that would solve our problem. For the past 3 years, I’ve been searching for it; and I must admit, it has been exhausting. With all…
