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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

As a mom, one of my hopes is that my kids will have a wonderful childhood with a lot of fun memories that they will love looking back on when they’re older. And every time the season changes, I see it as a huge opportunity to give them fun memories they will surely treasure by doing different activities they’ll get to enjoy. Like every fall, I make sure we go to a fall festival or we go apple picking. And since we’re already midway through February, I am so excited for the weather to FINALLY warm up so I can spend some…

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.
