Motherhood / 11.08.2016

In the Philippines, where I grew up, parents usually celebrate the baby's monthly birthday during his/her first year of life. They would usually prepare a few entrees and a cake (and, sometimes, other desserts) that they will share with the whole family. When my daughter was born, it was just my husband and me, so I opted to just dine out every month instead of cooking. We decided to do the same thing with my son's monthly birthday,...

Shopping / 08.08.2016

Last week, my husband had told my son's teacher that I am the "Queen of Bargains" when I told her where I got my Apple Watch bands (I'll be sharing that with you soon) so I decided to share with you my cheap finds! I hope you find them useful! Recently, Carter's had a really good sale. All the pajamas are 50% off + free shipping (no minimum), and I have a 25% off coupon which...

Beauty / 06.08.2016

I used to have oily face during the summer months and dry face in winter. I've tried several different moisturizers but nothing worked. Every few months, I would try to find a new moisturizer in the hopes of solving my skin problem. I was in the market for a new moisturizer and I heard about La Mer. To be honest, when I first heard about the brand, I told myself I won't pay that much for a...

Motherhood / 04.08.2016

My daughter has always been a good sleeper. She started sleeping through the night when she was 2.5 months. Even when we were weaning her off swaddling, she still did great. When she was sick, she'd just sleep soundly. We only had to do one thing - and that is to rock her to sleep. Yes, my daughter had been rocked to sleep since she was born. When she arrived, it was just me and my husband. We...

If you've read one of my earlier posts, you'd know that I managed to get through my pregnancies without having to buy maternity clothes. 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. Instead of spending money on something I know I won't be able to use after I deliver, I...

Women's Fashion / 31.07.2016

Make your jeans office-appropriate by dressing it up with a few basic closet pieces. I paired my skinny jeans with a white tee, fuchsia peplum jacket, a pair of nude ballet flats and a shoulder bag. Simple yet classy. **Check out the Pink Trend Spin LinkUp at The Fashion Canvas and Walking in Memphis in High Heels.

While I wish these commissions were enough to let me stay at home with my kids, they're really for paying the fees to keep this site up and running. Thank you for your continued support! When I got pregnant with my daughter, just like most first-time moms, I knew nothing about motherhood. I didn't know what stuff...

Kid's Fashion, Motherhood / 28.07.2016

It was one of those we're-running-late days because I didn't wake up early enough. And if you're a working mom like me, you'd know that waking up an hour before you're supposed to leave doesn't work anymore. In between taking a shower and getting ready for work, preparing healthy breakfast, changing diapers and clothes (and sometimes shortly after you've changed their clothes, they'd manage to get them dirty again), brushing those tiny teeth, fixing your daughter's...
