GODIVA Whitening Lotion Review

Everyday is a busy day for mommies like me. I sometimes wish I have a magical power to extend my 24 hours to 28 or more so I will be able to do all things I needed to do everyday. As always, it seems a lot to do but so little time. So when it comes to pampering myself, it is very seldom to have a single hour of ME time. What I do in a day full of activities, I dedicate few minutes for my skin care regimen. I have my morning and night skin care routine which sums up to a total of 30 minutes and another 10 minutes for my makeup. So when I was chosen to be one of the partner mommy bloggers by Godiva to review more of their products, I told myself it's very timely. I am on the look of new skin care products to try. Something that could cope up with a busy mommy life. I hope their products work on my skin, cross fingers. They sent me different Godiva products to try.

Personal: Saturday Night Marathon

  For the very first time this year, we both have made it up until after 2 movies. It's not like a milestone to celebrate but that means a lot to me and to hubby. We challenged each other the first one to fall asleep before we finished the two movies will get to do all the house chores the next day while the other one will have his/her ME TIME! Well we don't actually thought much about the challenge because we both enjoyed the movies, it's just sometimes it happens that we don't agree on the same movies, so the other one ended up snoring before we reached the mid part of the second movie.

One of my New Year's resolution is to support anything that is made from natural ingredients. These days, organic products are being patronized by more people. Simply because more and more are now aware that these organic products are economical and much safer since it has more natural ingredients. But just a clarification, not all products who claims organic are 100% made of natural ingredients. Some still have chemicals but not more than 10%. It pays to read the labels.

Choosing a New Washing Machine for Your Home

The average American family does hundreds of loads of laundry a year. That puts a lot of pressure on your washing machine, and you’ll find that after ten or fifteen years, it will start to show signs of breaking down. Although this can be an inconvenience, it’s a good time to upgrade to a new, more efficient model. Washing machine manufacturers are constantly renovating their designs so that the machines use less water and energy, while still cleaning even the dirtiest loads of laundry. Visit an appliance store or shop online for your new Garden City appliances so you can compare different types of washers and see which one is right for you.

Product Review: Majestical Jewelry Set

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.   When I was still working in call center, I used to love accessories because it accentuates my outfit. It's not that I recently lost my love to accessories, I still love them but I just don't wear now as often as before because when we go out, my youngest ends up clinging on my necklace until the beads and details will all fall off. Most of my accessories I just gave away to my friends however, I still have few pieces left. On some occasion that me and husband agreed that he will carry my youngest the entire time we are outside, then I would wear my necklace. I really feel bad when it gets broken most especially if its one of my faves. Last month, I was glad when I received an email that will send me free accessories.
