Welcome back! I hope you had an amazing holiday season!!! 2017 has been an amazing year for both One Awesome Momma and my family! Yes, we’ve encountered a lot of challenges and incidents that could have ended tragically during the past year like almost losing my daughter at the beach when we were celebrating my birthday, and rushing my son to the E.R. because he managed to eat some Reese’s peanut butter cups and had anaphylactic shock but we weren’t aware that he was having one. But through these, we learned valuable lessons; we came out of them stronger and…

For most people, this is the most wonderful time of the year. But for us moms, it’s the most stressful, not to mention, the most expensive time of the year. It’s that time when you’ve gotten so occupied with all the holiday activities and festivities that you wanted to do with your family. And also that time when you’ve stressed yourself out A LOT over what to give everyone in your holiday list; and how you’re going to fit everything in your budget. Unfortunately, with all these planning and stressing out, you tend to forget(or maybe didn’t even think about) to get something for the most important person in your life—yourself.

Not all office holiday parties are created equal. Some will require you to wear a cocktail attire; while some are more formal than others. There are also holiday parties that are held within the office building or similar low-key locations, just like where I work. Dressing up for office holiday parties like this is a bit tricky. The key is to choose an outfit that’s both sophisticated and professional. And that’s where Misook specializes in. Today, I’m going to share 3 outfit ideas that will make you stand out at your low-key office holiday party. Misook was created in 1985 with…

Seriously, there’s only a few more day ’til Christmas and 2 weeks before the New Year. Where did the time go?! I don’t know about you but I’m so excited for Christmas to arrive. I can’t wait to see the smile on my kids’ faces when they open the presents that have been waiting for them under the Christmas tree. So this is what happened – My husband and I decided we’re not going to get the kids toys for Christmas because they have tons in their play room. We enrolled them in a swimming class that will start in…

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?

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…

Growing up in the Philippines, you can quickly feel the Christmas spirit as soon as September hits. Everywhere you go feels like Christmas! I remember when I was younger, my mom and I would always fill our house with Christmas decorations as soon as September starts; we would always go out and get ourselves some delicacies that are only being sold during the Christmas season; and we would sing along to Christmas songs while they’re playing. These are the things I still dearly miss since I moved here in the U.S., Filipino Christmas traditions that I no longer get to…

Men can never have too much watch just like women can never have too much shoes or purses. I don’t know about you but watch has always been my go-to whenever I can’t think of what to give my husband during special occasions. If you’ve seen my Holiday Gift Guide For Him, I suggested giving a watch to the man who already has everything because no man can ever say no to a watch especially if it’s a really nice one. And if you’re still looking for the perfect watch for your man, I think I have found it. Hint: Make sure to…
