July has been a very busy month for me since I spent most of it planning and executing stuff for my daughter's princess themed birthday party. (I'll be doing a post about it soon, so watch out for it!) And I also did a lot of shopping especially with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. If you still haven't shopped the sale yet, check out my picks from this year's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Also, Today marks my...

Growing up, part of what gets me excited about Christmas are the family traditions that I get to do with my parents. I always look forward to doing those year after year. And I still do! I think I always will, even though I don't get to do it with them anymore. Now that I am a mom of 2 adorable kids, it is my turn to make sure that we get these Christmas traditions...

This year is really flying by! October has always been an eventful month for us since I became a mom, because of all the fun fall activities that we always try to do with the kids. And this year is pretty much the same, considering we've yet to go to a fall festival and enjoy the fall foliage. So my Instagram posts for the past month is a good combination of the outfits I wore and the activities that we did. I know I said in my previous post that I'll be sharing only 5 Instagram posts every month, but there are so many things that I love that happened in October; and I want to share them with you. Here are my favorite posts for October!

Growing up in the Philippines, you can quickly feel the Christmas spirit as soon as September hits. Everywhere you go feels like Christmas! I remember when I was younger, my mom and I would always fill our house with Christmas decorations as soon as September starts; we would always go out and get ourselves some delicacies that are only being sold during the Christmas season; and we would sing along to Christmas songs while they're...

woman watching TV Hi! How are you all doing? I'm doing pretty fabulous! Other than the fact that my blog just recently turned 1 and we have an ongoing $250 Nordstrom gift card giveaway (don't forget to enter if you haven't yet), I had updated my blog's logo to convey what my site is really all about. I immediately fell in love with it the moment I saw it! What do you think? This update wouldn't have been possible if not for my dear friend, Haydee Gusler. She also did social media banners to match the new logo! How awesome is she? Her graphic designs are impressive and she also does motion graphics! If you need any graphic work done, she's the right woman for the job!!! Check out all her amazing designs here. Anyway, since this is my first post after celebrating my first blog anniversary, I want it to be about something I love. Today, I will be sharing why This Is us is so relatable for everyone; it doesn't matter if you're a mom, dad, wife, husband, daughter, or son; you'll surely get hooked once you watch it.

Since I was younger, holidays would always get me really excited! Back in the Philippines, it seemed as if we have long weekends every single month! How I miss those! My friends and I would always plan to go somewhere each holiday. Before being a mom, my husband and I would choose to just stay at home and relax to enjoy the holidays; and most of the time, I'd be online shopping because of all the great deals! After giving birth to my kids, I guess my adventurous side got awakened; or maybe it gave me the perfect excuse to force my husband outside our house (he loves to stay at home). I found myself planning family trips for every holiday and for every occasion. Last 4th of July weekend, our family visited Washington, DC to enjoy the long weekend. If you have toddlers like I do, this post is perfect for you. Today, I will be sharing what you can do in Washington, DC with your kids.

Taken at the Washington Monument, in Washington, D.C., Lorissa's Kitchen meat snacks filled with protein As a mom of 2 toddlers, I'm always on the go - be it taking the kids to a farm or a park, play dates, or going out of town; our weekends are mostly spent outside. Kids are kids; they love to explore, climb on top of things, get dirty, and so much more. To make up for the fact that my husband and I work full-time 5 days a week, we take them somewhere fun every weekend to let them do all these things that they love. Being out and about means that I have to make sure our diaper bags are filled with snacks, tons and tons of it. And it's not just any snacks, I have to make sure the kids' snacks are always healthy.

My daughter used to be scared of water - pool, ocean, anything. Even when I thought she has finally gotten over her fear of water, she really didn't. It wasn't until recently when she started showing interest in playing with water. She would constantly tell me how she wants to swim in any body of water she'd see, even a small puddle of water. How cute, right? We've taken her and my son to an indoor pool near where we live quite a few times during the colder months; and she'd constantly tell me she wants to do it again. So last Memorial Weekend, my husband and I thought it would be perfect to bring the kids to Massanutten Resort.

76th & Newbury personalized art for house decoration or gift for any special occasion, family travel map log I adore anything personalized. If you've seen my son's first birthday party, you'll see that I had most of the decorations, even his outfit, personalized. Whenever we'd go home to Manila, I'd have something made that's personalized for my kids if not for our family, like our family hand print on a ceramic plate. I treasure every memory I've made (and yet to make) with my family, and having something personalized captures that perfect moment and ensures that we'd be able to look back years from then and remind us how happy we were or little the kids were at that moment.

My daughter first started showing interest in the potty when she was 18 months. Being the excited mom that I am, I rushed to my nearest Target the first chance I got and purchased this potty. One day, she said she wanted to go to the potty so we just sat her there and she peed on her own. That was pretty exciting for us but we didn’t do anything after that because her school...
