In a few weeks, my daughter is turning 4 and I seriously cannot believe how she has grown up so fast right before my eyes. But before I officially say goodbye to her toddlerhood, we must celebrate 4th of July first. I grew up in the Philippines and have only been here in the U.S. for a few years, but I seriously love wearing patriotic 4th of July outfits. Maybe because I just love the color combination of red, blue, and white so much. Today, I rounded up some cute & easy 4th of July outfit ideas you can certainly wear…

It has been a while since I’ve posted in here. I took my much needed break to focus on other areas of my life and other aspects of this blog that I haven’t worked on in a while. I hope you had an amazing Mother’s Day and Memorial Day festivities with your family & friends. I know I did some shopping for the past few weeks. Check out what I bought for myself on Mother’s Day (I was disappointed with some of them); and all the shoes I got in May! Today, I want to share with you one of my…

April has been a crazy month especially if we’re going to talk about the weather. It didn’t feel like spring until late April. We had one weekend when it was really nice and warm so we took advantage of it and went to Brownie’s Beach (Bay Front Park) in Maryland; and then it went back to chilly. It was also a month when I went crazy with shopping. Let’s kick off the month of May by sharing my favorite Instagram moments. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram so you’re always up-to-date on what I’m wearing and what I’m doing! – Note:…

Whether we like it or not, swimsuit season is just around the corner. It’s that time of the year when we usually feel pressured (especially us moms after giving birth to our precious little ones) to be in shape so we’ll look our best in our swimsuits. I don’t know about you, but I’m not gifted with the best metabolism there is; so I usually have to make an extra effort to work out to have that “perfect body”. But if you’re like me, you probably just don’t have the time to work out with everything you already have on…

Before I became a mom, I used to own an entire closet filled with shoes. I have a pair of for each color and every print I could think of. I have heels in stripes and leopard print; I have shoes with bows and feathers. I have classic heels and edgy ones. But I had to sell/donate almost everything to make room for my kids (I kept 3 of my favorite ones). And since then, every time I feel the need to buy a pair of shoes, I would always think how much wear I’d get out of them. I…

I can’t believe that the first quarter of 2018 is done just like that! The first 3 months of 2018 have been very eventful for me and my family. The kids pretty much spent most of the weekends of January and February attending their swim class; I made my daughter’s DIY wonder woman costume; we went to see Jurassic Quest when they were in town; my daughter has had to deal with mean friends;  my husband and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary (I have some tips on how to celebrate on a budget); and I found the cutest floral…

How was your weekend? How did you handle the time change? We woke up at 9 am last Sunday (how awesome right?), had breakfast, and decided to take the kids to an indoor playground all day. We thought if they didn’t take their nap, they’ll be in bed earlier than usual which would help them adjust with time change. And as I expected, they were in bed by 7:30 PM and my husband and I were in bed by 10 PM (earlier than we’re used to). But to my surprise, the time change STILL kicked our butts last Monday and…

Happy Tuesday! How was your weekend? Did you do something fun this President’s Day weekend? Ours has been great! We mostly stayed at home and caught up with the household chores but we also spent some quality time with the kids. We went out on Sunday for our Post-Valentine’s Date. I don’t want to go out on the actual Valentine’s Day because of how busy it usually is, so we usually either go out before or after. Today, I’m here to share my new favorite sweater & a fun way to wear white jeans in winter! – There’s a giveaway…

How was your January? Mine has been filled with birthday parties, swimming classes, and recovering from a virus. Last Christmas, my husband and I decided that we would be enrolling our kids to their very first swimming class instead of giving them material things as a gift for Christmas. So since the first Saturday of January, we’ve been taking the kids to their 9AM swimming class (except when they were sick)… what the hell were we thinking, right? I know!!! Anyway, here are my favorite Instagram moments last January! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram so you’re always up-to-date on what…

Happy Wednesday! How’s your January so far? Are you adjusted from the long holiday vacation? Ours has been okay. We didn’t really take off from work during the holidays because we already used up all our vacation days midway through 2017 so there’s not much of an adjustment for us. I’ve yet to take my much needed vacation… hopefully, soon! Today, I’m sharing my 2 all-time favorites trends – faux fur & faux leather!
