DIY Diaper Snow

It's officially summer for the kids! I'm so glad school is finally out, but at the same time dreading hearing these 2 words over and over again - "I'M BOOOOORED!" Anyway, here's an easy and quick activity that will surely keep your kids occupied for a couple of hours.

Ping Pong Diplomacy at SM Aura

We headed to SM Aura last month to dine at Ping Pong Diplomacy at my friend's request. She said it was new and wanted to try it out. Hubby and I haven't heard about this place yet and when she said it was Chinese food, I immediately thought about yang chow fried rice and sweet and sour pork dishes. Boy was I wrong... in a good way!

ClubBambino Summer Camp 2017 Programs

It's summer once again! And if you have children like me, the one thing you look for is activities they can do while there's no school. I mean really, how many times can you hear the phrase "I'm bored!" lol! If you're from the south, here's ClubBambino's programs for their summer camp this year.

#BeloBaby turns 1 (plus a GIVEAWAY!)

Belo Baby is now a year old! I still remember the launch event I attended where we were first introduced to the Belo Baby line. And since then, the brand has really proven itself by coming out with products that are crafted with care for the most delicate skin, for the most meticulous moms.

From the beginning, I was impressed with the Belo Baby Guarantee that each product formulation uses 100% certified natural ingredients with 0% harmful chemicals, clinically proven gentle and less irritating.

Their core natural ingredients are all great for baby’s delicate skin too:

Cocoa Butter - has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties; strengthens and moisturizes skin

Shea Butter - a known superfood for the skin; naturally heals common skin conditions of babies like eczema and rash.

Sweet Almond Oil - a natural emollient for softening skin; locks in moisture into the skin

My Little Mermaid

Since I just posted about my niece's Under the Sea party, I figured I'll share this very rare sighting of a mermaid...

La Chinesca in BF Homes

Hubby has been craving for Mexican food quite a lot lately (check out our Silantro experience HERE.) So when a friend posted about La Chinesca, a small tacqueria in BF Homes, we immediately wanted to try it out especially after hearing a lot of good reviews about it.

An Under the Sea Mermaid Party (plus supplier ratings)

I have a love hate relationship with planning and throwing parties. I love the whole creative process of putting together a theme, searching online for pegs and inspiration, and doing DIY projects. But what I hate sometimes is looking for suppliers and trying to stay on budget, without sacrificing the look you envision. Plus, hoping those suppliers deliver without leaving you disappointed.

Anyway, my brother-in-law and his family visited the Philippines last year, and part of their trip was celebrating the 2nd birthday of their daughter here in Manila. It would be the first time most of the family would get to meet Avianna, so her mom wanted to throw a big party. Of course, since they were in the States, I was the one tasked to plan and organize everything here. I was actually excited to do it since it would be like throwing a party without having to pay for anything haha! Ganon pala ang feeling ng party planner? ;p But I still felt pressured because I hoped my sister-in-law would like the suppliers I chose and everything.

Her mom wanted an Under the Sea Mermaid theme and she sent me pegs of the look she wanted and also her budget which was about P100,000. In the end, everyone had a great time at the party and my sister-in-law was happy with how it turned out. I did have some issues with some suppliers though, so I'll just share the pros and cons of each below. Take note that this was last year though, so prices and packages may have increased or changed already as of this time.

L.O.L. Surprise Dolls (plus the kids' new YouTube channel!)

My daughter told me last December that what she wanted for Christmas was these L.O.L. Surprise Dolls she saw on YouTube. It was the first time I had ever heard of these dolls and it was so funny when she was explaining to me how they worked. She kept saying it was 7 layers of surprise like a blind bag, and I was like how would it all fit inside?!

Room renovation part 1

All my daughter wanted for her 7th birthday was a loft bed and her own room. She fell in love with the Svarta loft bed from Ikea, so we ended up ordering this from Mobler last November. It's still not here yet, so I'm getting a bit impatient na haha! But for the room, she currently shares one with her brother (see their room HERE and HERE). But of course we knew they would need their own space when they got older.

One of the rooms we have is currently a guest room/storage room. But the layout just isn't right for the loft bed. What I wanted to do was remove the existing closet since I think the loft bed would fit better on that side of the room.
