This post is published in collaboration with Smile Brilliant. As always, thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. Would you believe me if I tell you that your at-home oral care can be improved A LOT? I didn’t think so too! I’ve always been a creature of habit. Because if what I’m doing already works, there’s no sense trying to reinvent the wheel, right? It’s the same for everything in my life, the food I order in my favorite restaurant, the kids’ night routine, my morning routine, down to brushing my teeth. I’ve always thought I wouldn’t spend my money…

Hosting a princess theme baby shower? Planning a baby shower, just like any other event, starts with the invitations. Your invitation sets the tone for your event. Is your baby shower going to be formal or casual? Is it going to be elegant or simple? Finding the perfect baby shower invitation is a must for me (and most likely any host). It has to have all the needed details for the party; more importantly, it should match the party’s theme.

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.

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…

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…

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…

As you know, I always try to dress my kids in coordinating outfits whenever I get a chance. I’ve been doing that for the past 3 years whenever there’s a special occasion. I’m trying to do it as much as I could before they start saying no to every outfit I choose for them. However, right now, they’re at that age when their personality is starting to show. So this holiday season, I decided to do it differently. I am going to let my kids’ personality sparkle when we attend this year’s New Year parties! And what better way to do it than to shop at OshKosh B’gosh. I hope you’ll get some inspiration from these kids style for your child’s outfit this holiday season.

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? That holiday cheer you feel deep inside you as soon as you see all the festive decors; shopping gifts for your loved ones and knowing these will bring a smile to their faces; and doing all sorts of fun activities with your family during the holiday season. It is truly the most wonderful time of the year to make special memories with the ones who truly matter, your family. Today, I am sharing how to make…
