Movie Stars Cafe: The Best Family Restaurant

Me and my kids hardly get a chance to go out with my everdearest mom. She was away for few weeks and were all glad that she's back home. When I was invited to dine-in at Movie Stars Cafe, I thought this could be a perfect chance to bond with her so I grabbed the chance and took the kids with us. Movie Stars Cafe is located along Sea Side Blvd. in Mall of Asia. It is a movie-themed restaurant perfect for the whole family. 

My First Purchase from Lazada: Agfa Precisa 1430 for My Son

And because my son made it again to the honors, I asked him what he prefers to receive as a gift from me and his Papa.  We better ask him because he really tell what he likes. That way, its sure that he will get to enjoy whatever it is that we gave him.  'DIGITAL CAMERA!,' he exclaimed with full of conviction. My husb and laughed off, 'Are you serious?' He turned to me, 'Why in all sudden he chose  to receive a digicam over android tablet or gaming console?'

Lagundex for Coughs and Colds + Giveaway! -closed-

As parents we always want the best for our kids and we do everything just to make sure they are in their best condition. However, there are still instances that we don't have any control of.  Whenever any of my sons got sick, I worry a lot. I am like a spinning top looking for the bestest way to make them feel better. 

Low Budget Meals: Sinigang na Sardinas

We thought of experimenting on low budget meals. So for breakfast, I thought of preparing a budget-friendly Sinigang na Sardinas. I have seen this recipe from a youtube video few months back and just today when I thought of trying to prepare it myself. A meal below Php100.00

DIY: Clutter Organizer Using Recycled Boxes

With three boys, our house can never be clutter-free for more than an hour. I am pretty sure most moms could relate on that. I was cleaning our messy room yesterday and had collected a lot of litter, dried-out nail polishes, scrap and useless boxes. It pop up in mind why not make those pieces useful again. And since I have been meaning to do DIY projects with my son, I took a crack. Recycling is one of the best way to reduce garbage and clutter at home. 

Choosing Wedding Rings

Many couples are set to tie a knot in June. So as early as April, everything from the receptions, gowns, suits and invitations should be properly planned. It's better to make early reservations to save you from hassles. 

My All-Natural Skin Whitener Bathe Essentials

Road testing a product to find out if you are both compatible or not really takes time. It disappoints me if it didnt worked after so many weeks of using while I am so pleased when I am able to find products that really work for me. One of the skin care brands which I really love is Godiva.  Yes,  I am always a fan of Natural skincare products.  I love Godiva n ot only because of it's natural ingredients but also it is proven effective with continued use.

Must-Have Summer Foundation: CoverGirl Whipped Creme Foundation Review

I was so impressed with my goto foundation, CoverGirl Natureluxe  ( read review here ) that I decided to try another Covergirl foundation. Since it's summer, I like a foundation that is perfect on a humid weather. Something that won't melt down right away and it should have a matte finish. This time, I toss coin for CoverGirl Whipped Creme Foundation.  Mall price: Around Php500.00

Congratulations Son!

I don't know how I neglected to publish this post. I guess that is how busy I am lately. I have been bombarded with a lot of activities that I failed to notice a lot of things. Nonetheless, I am forever a proud parent to my sons. Both of them growing up like how me and husband wanted them to become. They never fail to give us something to smile about every moment each day.

Here in my hubby's hometown, Catholics have a yearly ritual which is part of their devotion to their Creator during Holy Week. It is also yearly that I get to witness their Holy Week devotion. 

My Zalora Shopping Experience

This is actually my second time shopping at Zalora. And again, it was a smooth transaction. I feel so lucky enough to have acquired a FREE voucher from ZaloraPh after a collaboration here in my blog which I used to spend shopping. Ofcourse since I love shoes, I spent it all on footwear items. Forgive me I chose not to resist the urge. *guilty smile*

Kiddie Easter Project

  I was wondering why my son asked for some egg shells. It never registered to me that he will make an Easter project. It's probably because this is the very first time he will do an activity of egg painting for the Easter.

Fiametta's Bella Dolce Matte Lipsticks Review

A girl's makeup is never complete without any lip product on. I remember, I was in 4th year high school when I started using lipstick. I was too conscious about my upper lip, which is noticeably darker and only lipsticks can cover it up. That is how my love for lipsticks commenced. Just in time that I am looking to try new brands of matte lipsticks when   Fiametta sent me two of their new best selling Bella Dolce Matte Lipsticks in the shades Like Kim and Like Taylor. Yehey!

Mustela Products Review

  I can say that I am a meticulous mom when it comes to choosing on what kind of products to use for my kids  since their skin are quite sensitive, prone to allergies and easily reacts to any product that has harsh chemicals.  I always make sure my kids get enough care they deserve also by using products that are made especially for kids and babies' delicate skin. One of my tested, trusted and recommended brand is Mustela. Mustela products are not only for babies but also for toddlers and even for preschoolers. 

Residual/Online Income for 2013

It has been 12 months since I started my venture as a WAHM. I had a lot of ups and downs but I am glad I surpassed a year of challenge and enjoyment. CHALLENGE because working at home is never easy for a mom like me with two kids, however I still managed to cope with it for the sake of my family. Just learn to follow the flow if you cannot control it.  ENJOYMENT because I get to earn while at home. Who never enjoys being your own boss. I can get to enjoy my kids and my work all at the same time.  I remember, I started this blog to help moms like me to gather ideas on different ways o how to earn online. If you have all the resources like computer and internet connection, why not make it profitable. How does an additional income sounds?

Dream Kitchen

I love visiting different pages and websites to look for recipe ideas. I am actually trying my best to learn more recipes for my family. I am slowly learning, I have made several recipes which I will also share here on my blog soon. I need to learn more about food presentation first, lol. Internet is a big help for me  especially when the food looks tempting, it makes me drool and prepare  it as well. I am so glad that I finally realized that I needed to learn the moves in the kitchen, haha. Before, I don't even know how to slice veggies and I was quite unfamiliar with kitchen tools. Please don't think I came from a luxurious life because I did not. I just happened to exposed myself at work in a very early age that all that I wanted to do while growing up is to make ways on how to earn moolah. to help support myself on school expenses. That has made me no time to sit on the kitchen and help my mom do the cooking. Okay, is that really an excuse? lol. Please be considerate.*
