    Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Sample Kit Review – Part 1

    Let me just warn you, I am not an expert with regards to makeup. Just like most of you, I am just someone who is fascinated by it. It just so happened that I was able to get my hands on the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Sample Kit (from Sephora). So why not have some fun playing with it and share with you what I thought, right? I will do a 3-part review;  one per panel – the Purples and Pinks, the Reds and Browns, and the Neutrals. Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Review Since this is just a sample kit, I had to use…

    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…

    Dining Out With Your Kids

    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, even though my dad was staying with us during the first 6 months since he was born. I guess it’s just easier to dine…

    Pajama Shopping

    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 I could also use towards the pajama purchase. Imagine living in a tropical country like the Philippines where you’ll probably only need to get…

    La Mer… Is It Worth The Price?

    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 moisturizer. It’s just crazy!!! But the more I heard about it, the more I got curious so I started reading up about it. I…

    Bedtime Struggles

    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 both didn’t know what to do; we had to figure everything out on our own. Every time she’d cry (and was just fed and changed),…

    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…
