The last meet and greet we attended, Shopville Manila,  where we saw Mariel’s favorite Shopkins characters was in SM Mall of Asia last May. If you’ve read my post, it was a successful event where a lot of Shopkins fans were able to meet with each other, swap collections and play activities with each other. The good news is that The Shopkins craze is continuing with a new event coming up this coming July 15-17!  And what will be in store for all the fans?Shopkins Season 5 – Charms and Connectable Backpacks We’ve...

Ice Age Collision Course is now showing in Cinemas and we are just so excited to see again the trio of Manny the mammoth, Diego the saber tooth and Sid the sloth. This is the 5th in the franchise of Ice Age but we still look forward in seeing these guys in action. For the character fans, Jollibee has the Arctic Buddies in the Jolly Kiddie Meal. The best thing about it is that not only will the kids see and collect their favorite Ice Age characters but they can also use them in school. Look at the photos and you’ll know why. Mandy...

We are lucky parents because our generation encourages our little girls not only to pursue greatness through physical beauty but by being achievers themselves. And it’s not about being successful in certain types of careers but in fields which they will truly enjoy. I’ve always known Barbie as the ultimate fashionista icon and that girls who play with Barbie dolls can only look up to her because of her beauty and her relationship with Ken. Because of these aspects, I once thought that her character only fits in the little girls’...

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.

It’s heartbreaking to know that despite the struggle of many Filipino parents to provide for their families, there is still almost 4-million Filipino children who are classified as out-of-school youth. Majority of us can feel how maintaining a decent financial status these days is getting more and more difficult. In my daughter’s private school alone, many of her classmates have opted to choose to go to public schools because of the steep tuition fee. And I am not putting public schools in a negative light in here, not that...

Having two girls is an equally challenging and fun experience for me as a mom. One of the most fun parts I’d talk about here is when it comes shopping for their dresses. My youngest, Mariel, loves to wear dresses. Unlike other girls who doesn’t like frilly clothes and laces and ribbons, my Mariel is all up for these. She is not the type who will point and get any dress she’ll like when we go to the malls but she lets me choose for her, try the clothes and let me decide when I’ll buy it for her. That’s what...

Have you ever found yourself stuck in front of your computer looking for the perfect gift for someone special? I’ve had experienced it for so many times. Why? Because most of the shops I go to either doesn’t have the items I want or that the gifts I wanted to buy are being sold abroad. Sometimes I am tempted to ask my relatives abroad to just buy something similar for us, and ship them with their “balikbayan” boxes. The sad thing about it since I am only asking for a favor, I have to wait for them to ship their...

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...
