Do you use a whitening soap? I do too but not so much because I wanted to become fair-skinned. What I’m always after with whitening soap is its exfoliating effect. I’ve learned that no matter how much you clean, put on lotion or sunscreen, your skin won’t be completely healthy when you don’t exfoliate.Exfoliation is the removal of the dead skin cells on the outer layer part of our skin. All of us develop dead skin cells and depending on how harsh our activities are to our skin, the more dead skin we have. These...

When there are special occasions when my kids wear dainty dresses, most of the time they like to wear cotton shirts, shorts or pants. I guess they took it from us, their mom and dad, because we also like to dress casually. Here in the Philippines, it’s inevitable to favor loose and cotton clothes because of the weather. And when it’s damp and wet during the rainy season, we just want to wear something uncomplicated, easy to wear but comfortable clothing which can still protect us from the rain. UNIQLO Kids Collection I have...

Some of the moms I know, when they want to be pampered in salons, they go to malls and find a place there. As for me, because of my hectic schedule as a work at home mom, I usually have a friend stylist go to our place and do my hair and sometimes my nails. Both of these choices have their advantages and disadvantages and either of them will work for me. Going in a salon inside the mall will be fine with me when I want to have my hair done before I go home. Or maybe when I just want to go to the mall, forget everything from home, and just...

For me, one of the challenges of being a blogger is being able to give time to fix myself at least just to make sure that I look presentable when I go to events. I’m a work at home mom, half of my day should be spent working, half should be spent to house works, but since I have my blog (which I love) and the MBP community to manage, it’s difficult sometimes to even find the time to look in the mirror. But I have to and I am up for that challenge because this is a passion for me. It makes me happy being with my co-bloggers...

I’ve long been looking at the pretty headbands of Peekabow. I’m truly amazed with how beautiful each pieces are, the colors that the creators use ( I fortunately met her online, mommy Adel ) the gemstones, and the laces. The babies modeling the headbands are adorable. I can spend several minutes each day looking at the photos. My fondness with big headbands and fascinators were inherited by my youngest. I bought her once from SM Department Store a yellow headband with a big yellow flower in it and I guess she loved it truly...

Finding the perfect jeans for me is a challenge not only because I’m petite but I’m also chubby in the usual parts. Very ironic because I think my body is very typical of Filipinas my age, but when I’m looking for jeans, I find it difficult to find a pair for me because they are either too tight fitting on my belly or they are low rise ( they don’t reach my belly at all). I’m looking for a perfect pair of denim jeans from Levis just recently, I’ve already found my size and my style, but when I got to...
