Things To Do In Washington, DC With Toddlers

Since I was younger, holidays would always get me really excited! Back in the Philippines, it seemed as if we have long weekends every single month! How I miss those! My friends and I would always plan to go somewhere each holiday. Before being a mom, my husband and I would choose to just stay at home and relax to enjoy the holidays; and most of the time, I’d be online shopping because of all the great deals! After giving birth to my kids, I guess my adventurous side got awakened; or maybe it gave me the perfect excuse to…

Healthy Snacking When Traveling With Lorissa’s Kitchen

As a mom of 2 toddlers, I’m always on the go – be it taking the kids to a farm or a park, play dates, or going out of town; our weekends are mostly spent outside. Kids are kids; they love to explore, climb on top of things, get dirty, and so much more. To make up for the fact that my husband and I work full-time 5 days a week, we take them somewhere fun every weekend to let them do all these things that they love. Being out and about means that I have to make sure our…

Things To Do With Toddlers At Massanutten Resort

My daughter used to be scared of water – pool, ocean, anything. Even when I thought she has finally gotten over her fear of water, she really didn’t. It wasn’t until recently when she started showing interest in playing with water. She would constantly tell me how she wants to swim in any body of water she’d see, even a small puddle of water. How cute, right? We’ve taken her and my son to an indoor pool near where we live quite a few times during the colder months; and she’d constantly tell me she wants to do it again. So…

Washable & Comfortable Costumes For Kids With Little Adventures + Giveaway

I adore seeing kids, especially babies, in costumes because they just look so adorable in them. Ever since becoming a mom, I’ve always been looking forward to Halloween because that means I can dress up my kids in cute costumes. What I didn’t like about costumes is that they’re so uncomfortable and impractical; not to mention that they’re expensive and they get ruined when you wash them. Which is why I’ve always been an advocate of practical “costumes” that you can wear over and over, like the ones the Inside Out characters have been wearing. But that was until I found out about Little…

Decorate Your Home With Personalized Art From 76th & Newbury

I adore anything personalized. If you’ve seen my son’s first birthday party, you’ll see that I had most of the decorations, even his outfit, personalized. Whenever we’d go home to Manila, I’d have something made that’s personalized for my kids if not for our family, like our family hand print on a ceramic plate. I treasure every memory I’ve made (and yet to make) with my family, and having something personalized captures that perfect moment and ensures that we’d be able to look back years from then and remind us how happy we were or little the kids were at that moment.

Make Reading Time More Interesting With Personalized Children’s Books From I See Me!

From the time my kids were born, I always make it a point to include reading to them in our routine. When they were younger, I would read to them every night before they go to sleep. They’ve always loved reading; which is why I would always give them a book as a gift for any occasion. But now that they’re a little bit older, they seem to have a shorter interest in books; and seem to be more interested in playing other toys. I guess it’s my fault because I somehow let our bedtime story slipped into the every day…

What Moms Really Want For Mother’s Day + Giveaway

My mom is one of the women I know who isn’t addicted to shoes; she is fascinated to flip flops (the ones with great quality) though. I can still remember back when I used to live in the Philippines, I would always take her out on a date for Mother’s Day or her birthday and give her a new pair of flip flops. She would always get excited every time I get her a pair so I thought that’s what she really wants. But that was until I became a mother and actually got to experience what being a mom is really…

Give The Best Gift Ever With Songfinch – A Personalized Song For That Special Person

I love music and I can definitely say that music has been a huge part of my life. I remember back when I was younger, I would turn to music either when I was happy or sad; especially when I was heartbroken. There’s something about hearing someone sing some words accompanied by a melody that makes it so heartfelt and extremely relatable. I absolutely remember I used to cry while listening to a song when I was trying to mend a broken heart; while I used to feel really in love and happy when I was listening to cheery songs. And…

Make Bath Time More Fun With SoapSox

Most kids I know hate taking a bath; but my kids don’t. Sure, they used to hate bath time when they were babies but they grew to love it. Maybe it’s because they got used to taking a bath since it’s part of our routine. And even when they’re crying the entire time, we still do it; which maybe is why it has paid off. I honestly don’t know why but I’m just thankful they love it. My son actually looks forward to bath time ALL THE TIME. As soon as I say “It’s bath time”, he immediately starts taking his clothes off…

Celebrate Wedding Anniversary With Family At Skytop Lodge In Pocono Mountains

Couples celebrating their wedding anniversary usually do something noteworthy for their special day. Some couples go on a date and do something they both love doing; a few try to re-create that memorable night when they exchanged their vows; while others go on a romantic trip for a few days or even weeks. However, celebrating wedding anniversaries with kids, especially younger ones, can be challenging. Dressing up and getting dolled up to go on a date with your spouse if you haven’t had enough sleep for a few nights in a row can be such a chore; I’m sure you’d rather just stay at home and spend…
