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:…

Tonight, my daughter told me she wants a new mommy! We weren’t fighting at all. She said it casually while we were asking each other how our day went before bedtime. It felt like I got stabbed in the heart. She said it was because I get stressed out a lot.   She’s right. I get stressed out over little things. When she and her brother don’t want to share toys, when they don’t listen even after telling them not to do something countless times, or when her brother ended up hurting her (and sometimes when she hurt her brother).…

Your bedroom is a place where you retreat from everything else to end your day. It’s the place where you get your most deserved rest after an eventful day, especially for moms like myself. So it’s supposed to be the coziest place in your home. I don’t know about you, but cozy for me is more than just comfortable bed and luxurious sheets. It’s about the feeling that a room gives me. It is about knowing that it is indeed “my space” – a space that I built for myself and my family – as soon as I enter the room.

My daughter has been consistently asking when we’re going to the beach since Winter. And since the weather in Virginia was really nice last Saturday, we decided to do a quick family trip to Brownie’s Beach (Bay Front Park) in Calvert County, Maryland. Today, I’m going to share everything you need to know about Brownie’s Beach (Bay Front Park). – Make sure to read towards the end, I’m hosting a Mother’s Day Giveaway with other fabulous moms where you can win $300 Target Gift Card! – Brownie’s Beach (also known as Bay Front Park), is one of the local beaches…

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…
