Pigeon Only Moms: Breastfeeding Is Best Feeding

August is literally a day from being over, but let me end this month by celebrating breastfeeding month by telling you what I got from Pigeon’s Only Moms Breastfeeding Advocacy event last August 20th. Pigeon recently launched its Only Moms Breastfeeding Advocacy to celebrate the unique and phenomenal ability of moms to breastfeed their babies. I think this kind of advocacy and events is important to have all year round because it really helps moms and dads learn more about breastfeeding and why breastfeeding is #BestFeeding. You’d be surprised to know how many moms (maybe even some of your mommy …

Detail Make Over: Affordable & Cruelty-free Makeup

When my love for makeup started late last year, I seriously didn’t know what I was doing. I honestly spent way too much just because I was trying out different products that would work for the look I’m going for and my skin type. It was only earlier this year that I started reading beauty blogs and watching beauty vloggers on YouTube that I realized it doesn’t have to be expensive for makeup to work for me.  I’ve given away so much makeup (huhu!) but I also learned which ones look good on me. I know for one that using …

Warts Removal Recovery Diary

Around early June, I finally gathered up the courage to get the warts on my face removed. Initially, it was the fear of passing it on to my kids that pushed me to get it done. But my dermatologist told me that it wasn’t contagious naman. So the other pushing factor for me would be have better skin. You know, I’m still pretty young and I’ve heard from “older”, not necessarily old, women that I’ve met that prevention is better AND easier than cure. So I started looking around for anti-aging products. I had to cross out some well-known brands …

Things Jacob Says: July 9, 2016

I was putting the boys to sleep last night. It was after we said our prayers and we were just laying there in the dark. We turn off all the lights now for the boys’ bedtime. It helps keep Wacky from running around. World, I know someday my sons’ heart will get broken. By disappointments in school, work, friends, even family and soon enough, by a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship. That’s okay. And it’s very much expected. That’s how they will learn and become stronger. But please, also show them the goodness in people and the brighter side of things so they …

Landers Superstore EDSA Balintawak

Landers Superstore Balintawak Is Now Open!

The day has come, Landers Superstore in Balintawak is finally open! After my busy hours at work, I went out for lunch with my good friend, Tin, and Jacob. Landers EDSA Balintawak is around 30 minutes away from us and traffic wasn’t bad around 1PM. But man, the line of cars going inside Landers stretched all the way past Home Depot Balintawak! We were supposed to take a U-Turn na but when we saw how slow cars were going in and the super packed parking lot, we decided to head to S&R instead because we’re impatient like that. We spent …

Things Jacob Says

THINGS JACOB SAYS: JUNE 20, 2016

I’m starting a new series on the blog which I hope I’d add to on a regular basis. Jacob is a bit of a late talker. When I say late, I mean he mostly babbled on about until he was around 2 years old. This grew as a concern for my Mom especially, because he apparently has to be able to make short sentences na and what not. I was even told to bring him to a speech therapist. I didn’t. But I did meet a fellow mommy blogger at an event I invited them to for Engineering for Kids …

St. Luke’s Global City Maternity Room Rates 2016

A few weeks ago, I got a message on my Facebook Page from a reader asking about St. Luke’s Global City since I gave birth to Joaquin there. My experience seemed so long ago (almost 2 years!) so I felt like I didn’t have the right information to share with her. Luckily, I was heading to BGC that day for the CERELAC Media Launch so I decided to drop by St. Luke’s Global na rin. I also went in for a quick check-up with my dermatologist, Dra. Deanna Ramiscal, to schedule cauterization. More on that one later since I’m still …
