Fall Must-Haves

The past couple of mornings have been pretty chilly; there is no doubt that Fall is just around the corner. With the changing season comes the need to update your wardrobe; this is absolutely the best time to do just that (what a good excuse to do some shopping)! No, you don’t have to buy a  whole lot of new outfits; getting a few key pieces to pair with what you already have can, without a doubt, bring your old outfits back to life. But before you hit the mall or shop online; check out my must-haves to (hopefully) guide you in your fun task. – Note: I may receive…

Fuchsia A-line Skirt

The kids had an End of Summer Bash Party at the daycare yesterday so it was an opportunity for me to wear my fuchsia a-line skirt. I really love everything about this skirt – the color is really nice, it hits me just a little bit below my knees which is perfect, it is very light and flowy which means I can move freely all day especially when it’s time to dance at the party (yes, I dance at my kids’ parties – I love to dance plus it’s a good chance for me to bond with them), and the quality is really…

5 Ways To Wear Office Outfit And Not Look Boring

Wearing traditional clothes to work every day can get boring if done every single day. Personally, it feels like you’re wearing a uniform, just in different colors. Don’t get me wrong; I do like wearing the conventional dress shirt and pants or pencil skirt to work, especially on days that I am rushing and just doesn’t want to think about what I’m going to wear. But, of course, there are days when I just want to feel good and express myself; so what better way to do it than to dress according to how I feel, right? If you ever find yourself in that…

Off-the-Shoulder Dress

I took the day off work (and taking care of the kids) today to take myself out on a date; to do something nice for myself. When you’re  a mom, days like this are VERY rare so you really have to take advantage of it once the opportunity arises. I think the last time I did this was almost a year ago and I found myself shopping for the kids (not for myself). So let’s see where this day will lead me (I won’t promise I won’t do any shopping for the kids). Since summer is about to be over soon, I…

Stripes and Denim

This morning, we decided to bring the kids to the park; and I thought it was a good time to wear our sneakers (given by my mother-in-law). My daughter and I both have pink ones; while my husband and son both have black ones. So why not wear matching outfits to go with our sneakers, right? Yes; I am that mom. I take advantage of every opportunity that I have to wear matching outfits with my kids and I love doing that. I’ll probably keep doing it until my kids let me. Outfit Details: On me: Top: Express (similar) | Shorts: No name brand…

The Momma Shoes

Dressing up and wearing high heels used to be two of my favorite things. I used to own different kinds of shoes to go with whatever outfit I was in the mood for – strappy sandals, wedge espadrilles, sequined pumps, snakeskin peep-toe heels, studded sandals, suede ankle boots, knee-high boots – you name it, I have it. But motherhood came and changed all that (no complains and definitely no regrets). Since giving birth to my 2 beautiful kids, flats have always been my best friend. Wearing one makes it really comfortable especially if you have to rush every morning from the house to…

All Dressed Up For A Special Occasion

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you’re having a good day! It’s the hubby’s birthday today so we’re taking him out for dinner. Nothing fancy; just him, the kids, and me in a simple Japanese restaurant nearby that I just recently discovered. But still, I decided to dress up. It’s better to be overdressed than underdressed, right? Peplum is one of my favorites because it’s always flattering for anyone (as long as you get the right kind). It hugs your curves in all the right ways; it showcases your assets while still looking classy (it’s also perfect for concealing a muffin top or any waist problem you may have). And for all…

The Secret To Get Through A Pregnancy Without Maternity Clothes

Pregnant and have no money for maternity clothes? There is absolutely no need to buy maternity clothes. In one of my earlier posts, where I listed must have baby items for first time moms, I mentioned that I managed to get through my pregnancies without maternity clothes, not even a single one. And it’s not because my belly was so small that I didn’t even have to; I just didn’t want to. Why? First, they’re expensive; and second (at least for me), there’s not much variety. In this post, I will share how you can avoid buying maternity clothes during…
