My 28th Birthday

I had the most chill 28th birthday celebration ever! I didn’t plan anything to do, which surprised Oscar, because I usually have everything down to the T. Usually, we celebrate birthdays with the whole shebang: house/hotel party and a whole week of celebration. I don’t know what changed, but after Jacob’s 5th birthday celebration (which I haven’t even blogged about!), I decided to pull the reins a bit and keep it low key. I guess it’s because we’re also trying to not spend too much anymore because we’re preparing to buy our own place. That’s a big factor. But also, …

Holika Holika x Audrey Jeanne Dodo Cat Glow Cushion BB Review

My BeautyMNL.com Haul & Holika Holika x Audrey Jeanne: Dodo Cat Face 2 Change Glow Cushion BB Review

I started playing around with makeup around November last year. It was around the time that I was about to finish the tube of BB Cream I had then. I was thinking about buying a new one, but I realized, looking through my photos with the BB Cream, that it actually makes me look very haggard after a couple of hours. Turns out I had acidic skin, which makes whatever foundation or cream I have on my face get darker as time goes by. Being a noob with makeup, I must have spent around PHp 6,000+ worth of cosmetics and …

Lysol Maxcover Mist Spray

I’m a #LysolMaxiMom with 100% Whole Moms and Lysol Maxcover Mist Spray

A few weekends ago, I was invited by Lysol to a day of learning from 100% Whole Moms, Marilen, Cheska and Rica and to celebrate Lysol’s newest product Lysol Maxcover Mist Disinfectant Spray! If you know me well, you’d know how much of an OC I am. My being OC includes carrying multiple disinfectant sprays for personal use for the kids and I (including Lysol’s travel spray!) so I can clean hands and tables and chairs. I also make it a point to organize everything in our home (AKA I have a place for everything and I expect them to …

What You Need To Know About Nasal Care

Growing up with a family of dentists sure has its perks. I can say that I’m very knowledgeable when it comes to dental hygiene because of my parents, brother and sisters. I would never hear the end of it until they see me brushing my teeth after meals and at night. There would be scare tactics done, but eventually, they didn’t have to do them because when I had my first toothache, I knew dental hygiene is a big deal. Much like anything else concerning our health, it’s really prevention that plays a big part in it all rather than …

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 Only Moms Breastfeeding Advocacy event last August 20th. Pigeon recently launched its Pigeon 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 …

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 …
