I’ve just read SmartParenting’s latest 100 Things To Do With Your Child This Summer and I was obliged to check what we have done so far. I mean, it’s not a necessity to do everything because it’s vacation but I felt, the kids deserve to have more time with us, their moms and dads at least this two months. When they go to school again this school year, we only have weekends to do things together. Next year will also be more hectic with my eldest graduating in elementary and taking entrance exams.Just so happy that...

My husband had just registered our car today and he said that all fees he paid had increased compared to last year. It just made us realized more that times aren’t financially improving since we have to allot more when it comes to our car. It’s also a great reminder that we need to check how we spend and how we use our resources efficiently so that there will be more left on our savings. The last event I attended was just very timely for this. Electrolux, one of the most famous brands in the Philippines when it comes to kitchen...

My youngest Mariel turned 9 last April and I’d like to share how we managed to give her a day which she enjoyed truly. I know how tough it can be sometimes to think of where to get your party supplies, especially when you have that much time. My daughter’s party wasn’t a grand celebration but I’d like to think of it more as a play date for her where she chose to invite her friends over, dress up, and play some games which she chose with her Ate Maristel. The party wasn’t even a total DIY because all the food...

Tween age is quite a difficult age when it comes to choosing fashion styles and brands. I know this because currently, my daughter and I can only count the brands which cater to my daughter’s young age (11 turning 12). It’s either the clothes are still baby looking or they are too matured for my daughter’s age. It’s a good thing though that my daughter Maristel still listens to me when choosing her clothes. From time to time, we buy branded clothes because I know myself that these brands have durable quality, and...

I’ve just read from somewhere that someone is asking a group of people of who they think are the inspiring blogger moms. Of course, nobody nominated me maybe because either they don’t know me or they just don’t have me on their minds as an inspiring one. Then I’ve thought about it and asked myself, how can someone really be considered an inspiring mommy blogger? What “Inspiring” Means From Merriam-Webster, the word inspiring means : causing people to want to do or create something or to lead better lives. Take...

Have you paid your SSS yet? We have just paid ours for the first quarter of 2015. Last year, we skipped several months due to financial constraints but this year, we want to start with a better year in paying our dues. As a work at home mom, it definitely pays to pay SSS because it’s like a barnyard of benefits when time comes. If you think you are already late for this quarter, there’s still a few days left. Check your SSS number and see this SSS 2015 schedule of payment and contribution.Sample Benefits Take like my father...

It was our first time to dine in at Dekada and we are glad we enjoyed our time. After all, it was a special day for us because it was our two daughters’ recognition day. After a year of hardwork in school, doing projects, assignments, attending meetings, studying for quiz bees and contests, the school year is over and our girls ended it with flying colors, as they say. Dekada in FT is located inconspicuously. It’s within Wellworth Department store and you will hardly notice it unless you decide to go to the most inner portions...

When I was younger, I’ve always thought that fruit salad is the only kind of salad in the world. I always look forward to Christmas because of fruit salads. When I became a mom and you are given the task of preparing something different for your family at least monthly, I think I’ve seen a hundred different kinds of salad already. But of course, being a work at home mom, I often look for 5-ingredient max recipes or else, I’ll take the recipe as complicated and discard it right away. To cut it short, I’m sharing...
