Love Family, a personalized book from Loving Lion Books that teaches kids to embrace diversity. #childrensbook #learnthroughplay | personalized books for kids | childrens books | personalized childrens books | books for kids | books for toddlers | books to read 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 is a known fact that kids learn through play and through what they see. And with my experience as a child, I realized that books really have a huge influence with the way kids view things, which is why I try to be selective with the books that I get for my kids.

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...

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...

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 sharing only 5 Instagram posts every month, but there are so many things that I love that happened in October; and I want to share them with you. Here are my favorite posts for October!

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...

woman having a relaxing flower bath, spoil yourself mom Moms, let's be honest... When was the last time you spoiled yourself? How many times did you feel like all you do is care for your family that oftentimes you take yourself for granted? I always do! Most of the time, I feel like I spend the entire day making sure my family's needs are met - their meals and snacks are served on time, their clothes are washed and put away, the kids have enough activities throughout the day to keep them entertained, and so much more - that I never got the chance to do the things I want to do. Before having kids, I used to have time to do the things I love to do like working out every single day, giving myself a manicure every single week, and traveling to places I've always wanted to visit.

woman wearing different fall outfits - shorts paired with converse high tops and leather jacket, sheer top paired with distressed jeans and sandals, and cold shoulder top paired with shorts and ankle boots I realized I haven't done as much fashion posts as I'd like to lately; you've probably noticed that too. My life has been crazy busy and extremely eventful recently that I just don't have enough time to work on my blog. You probably miss my fashion posts. And since I usually share some life updates and my outfits on Instagram, I realized I should do an Instagram roundup post every month.

child having a public temper tantrum, public meltdown I have to say that I've been VERY fortunate to not have to deal with a public temper tantrum for the entire 3 years since becoming a mom, until recently. To be honest, I've been dreading it because I don't know how to react or how I would handle it. My daughter is really sweet and cheerful; and although she would sometimes cry in public, she would ALWAYS listen to whatever I told her. Things would never escalate to a temper tantrum. I guess she learned early on that when Mommy says no, there's nothing she could do to change that. But, of course, my son is different. Although he is a happy and easygoing child,  he is also very strong-willed. When he says no, it would always be a challenge to get him to change his mind. And the same goes for when he wants something. And it was while I was out with him, when I got judged as a mother. He had a public meltdown; a full-blown temper tantrum that lasted for a while.
