I hope you enjoyed all the great Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals that started last weekend. I took advantage of these awesome deals and used Ebates; so I know I will get some money back with all the shopping that I did. And I couldn’t be any happier with the fact that I’m done with my Christmas shopping. Big YAY for that!!! But for those of you who aren’t and still thinking what to give that special man in your life, whether he’s your friend, your brother, your dad, someone you’re dating, or your husband, look no further because I just might have the answer…

I LOVE fall foliage; it is one of my favorite things about fall, so I planned for us to go somewhere nice where we can enjoy the fall colors especially since my parents are visiting from the Philippines. This is a perfect time to show them around. When planning for a trip, I always take into consideration the schedule of my kids; I always have to work around their nap and bed time. Harpers Ferry National Park sounded perfect because it was only an hour drive from where we live. Harpers Ferry National Historical Park is located at the confluence of…

Every Thanksgiving, I always say that I’m thankful for family, friends, and all those kinds of serious stuff. That has been always true but this year, to make it fun, I’ve decided to turn the spotlight on to the little things that I am thankful for this year. Hot showers – Growing up in Manila where having water heaters isn’t a necessity but a luxury, I take comfort in the fact that the water I am showering in every day is going to be warm. It makes waking up in the morning so much more bearable. Fluffy cozy robe – Because…

With the holiday season quickly approaching, I am sure you’re starting to think about what to give the special woman in your life; which I think is a great idea because Black Friday and Cyber Monday are just a couple of weeks away. Shopping during these times allows you to take advantage of all the great deals available. In case you missed it, I did a post about Shopping Online & Getting Money Back recently which can save you some more money when shopping. In this post, I’ve…

I experienced online shopping for the first time when I arrived here in the U.S. and I immediately fell in love with how convenient it is. I love everything about online shopping!!! I love how I don’t have to go through numerous racks of clothes to find what I want in my size. I love how I know right away how much I’d end up spending with the pieces I’ve added to my cart; and if it’s out of my budget, I can easily choose and remove…

I love classic timeless closet pieces like a white button-down shirt, light-washed jeans, a pair of white sneakers, classic beige pants, and the list goes on. But I am also in constant search of those printed pieces that I can pair with the classic pieces that I have for a more fun look. And this gingham pants that I found on clearance does the perfect job. I usually store my pants in one of those plastic containers that can be bought from The Container Store (because I no longer have space in my closet) so they are folded up which means I have to…

I love crafts that use either their handprint or footprint (or both) so I decided to do this cute Turkey Footprint & Handprint. As always, making crafts with toddlers don’t always turn out perfect (I hate to say this but sometimes they don’t turn out good) so I never strive for perfection. See how our Halloween Crafts turned out. So if you’re a mom who…

Chambray shirts have been on the spotlight for a while because of their versatility. And that’s why I have decided to do a series of posts about one chambray shirt, worn in 4 different ways. I know that sounds few considering how versatile they are; but I will only be featuring my favorite ones that are appropriate for this cold weather. Last week, I started off the series with the classic denim on denim look and to make it so much more fun, my kids and I wore matching outfits. You can check out the details of that post here. Leggings – Other…

Since I won’t be able to share our Halloween costume on time because we won’t be wearing it until tonight, in the spirit of Halloween, I decided to share an easy arts and crafts that my kids and I did last weekend using paper plate. We did two – one for my daughter and one for my son but my daughter pretty much did all the work for my son’s craft. I know he still doesn’t appreciate all these arts and crafts activities but it’s still fun to let him be a part of it. I am not a very artsy person…
