Last January, my daughter had an assignment in school. They needed to wear DIY superhero costumes. I asked her and she said she wanted to wear a wonder woman costume. Although I was VERY excited to make a superhero costume for her, I didn’t know how to make a toddler wonder woman costume. So I went to google and looked at several toddler wonder woman costumes available for sale and tried to imagine how I would turn the stuff she already has into a costume. Today, I’ll be sharing how to make a toddler wonder woman costume like a pro…

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…

My kids were both born with sensitive skin. During the first year of their lives, they both had eczema. We’ve tried numerous products but nothing helped their skin. We’ve had countless doctor visits to see if there’s anything out there that would help improve their skin; but we were prescribed with steroids Every.Single.Time. The thought of applying steroids on my children’s skin made me feel uncomfortable, so I didn’t stop searching for that one product that would solve our problem. For the past 3 years, I’ve been searching for it; and I must admit, it has been exhausting. With all…

As a mom, one of my hopes is that my kids will have a wonderful childhood with a lot of fun memories that they will love looking back on when they’re older. And every time the season changes, I see it as a huge opportunity to give them fun memories they will surely treasure by doing different activities they’ll get to enjoy. Like every fall, I make sure we go to a fall festival or we go apple picking. And since we’re already midway through February, I am so excited for the weather to FINALLY warm up so I can spend some…

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!

As you probably already know, embroidery is one of my favorite trends, apart from the cold shoulder and bell sleeve trends. So when I’ve gotten a request to style a pair of embroidered jeans for winter; I got really excited! Embroidered jeans are so easy to wear regardless of the season. You just have to know how to pair them with the right pieces to make it work. Back in spring, I paired my embroidered jeans with bell sleeve top; and in fall, I wore them with a cape coat. Today, I’m sharing 4 cute ways to wear embroidered jeans in…

Welcome back! I hope you had an amazing holiday season!!! 2017 has been an amazing year for both One Awesome Momma and my family! Yes, we’ve encountered a lot of challenges and incidents that could have ended tragically during the past year like almost losing my daughter at the beach when we were celebrating my birthday, and rushing my son to the E.R. because he managed to eat some Reese’s peanut butter cups and had anaphylactic shock but we weren’t aware that he was having one. But through these, we learned valuable lessons; we came out of them stronger and…

For most people, this is the most wonderful time of the year. But for us moms, it’s the most stressful, not to mention, the most expensive time of the year. It’s that time when you’ve gotten so occupied with all the holiday activities and festivities that you wanted to do with your family. And also that time when you’ve stressed yourself out A LOT over what to give everyone in your holiday list; and how you’re going to fit everything in your budget. Unfortunately, with all these planning and stressing out, you tend to forget(or maybe didn’t even think about) to get something for the most important person in your life—yourself.
