    Raising an unplugged kid in this tech-savvy generation.

    Not too long ago, children used to play outside all day, playing sports, riding bikes and engaging in creative play that didn’t require expensive gadgets or parental supervision. But unfortunately, today, this is far from the case. Today, it’s not uncommon to see toddlers and preschoolers carrying around an iPad or any gadgets.  So choosing to raise an unplugged kid in this tech savvy generation is not really that easy but it’s so worth it. Screens put everything on the table so that there is nothing to uncover. But when we get out of our children’s way and let them be bored they come up with all sorts of exciting things…

    5 Factors To Consider When Buying Nursing Bra.

    I’ve been breastfeeding Zoe for almost 3.3 years now and we’re still going strong with no signs of weaning yet. As a first time mom who plans to breastfeed til Zoe self wean I really bought a lot of nursing bras. But sadly stopped wearing them when Zoe turned 1 year old because it’s not comfortable anymore. So I told myself next time I’ll invest and pick nursing bra wisely. Luckily, I found Coobie Bras. They have all types of bra not just nursing bra. They sent me two kinds of bra, nursing bra and scoop neck which are the bestsellers for me to try. 5 factors I consider when…

    Biodegradable Baby Wipes by BCare Review

    To be honest, I am not a fan of wipes. Why? Because Zoe have a super sensitive skin and using wipes usually develops rashes and trigger her allergies. I know for a lot of moms, they can’t go out without having one. So when I found out about Bcare Bamboo Wipes I was so intrigued. BCare Bamboo Wipes claims: 1. Soft as cotton but more absorbent. Extra thick and wonderfully soft. No wet and sticky feeling will be left on your baby’s skin because these wipes absorb 40% more moisture compared to cotton. 2. It has natural antibacterial. The wipes are bacteria-fighting by mature, thanks to bamboo ‘kun’ which is…

  • How to practice your child’s scissors skills.

    Zoe is now 3 years old and doing a great job in using her scissors. When I started to introduce her the scissors. I have a 3 major rules for her. Scissors are a tool and not a toy.

  • TakoMagi Tagaytay

    Last Thursday we visited TakoMagi in Tagaytay. The vibe of their place will really transport you in a cozy Japanese Ramen house without breaking your bank. But before getting into the review let me share to all of you my interview with Mr. Edrianne Dela Cruz, the owner of TakoMagi. Why did you decided to pursue a career in the restaurant business? My passion is in arts really, but art and food goes hand in hand, I love good food and product presentation and visual display adds up to how you experience your food. That’s the reason we have different cuisine all over the world that are offered here in…

  • Breastfeeding In Style with Little Roo

    Last time, I post about my views regarding breastfeeding in public here. But some moms don’t have that confidence yet to breastfeed in public. And yes, I hear you mommas! Luckily, I found this local brand that sells a breastfeeding cover. Little Roo The name is too cute and catchy. Isn’t it? It is owned by Mommy Alex, a breastfeeding mom of twins. All the infinity nursing scarves are made with love as she’s the only one sewing at night. Salute to all mompreneurs like her! So let’s support locals! While feeding Zoe suddenly sneak out of the cover and told me “Mom, look Im inside you just like kangaroos!”.…

  • Breastfeeding in Public

    I always wonder why do people remain so incredibly uncomfortable with breastfeeding in public? Why does the society still seem so put off by a woman using her breasts for what they were really made for? I’ve been breastfeeding for 3 years and 2 months now. We strike anywhere and anytime when Zoe is hungry. I usually don’t have a cover since Zoe hates being covered. She keeps on lifting the cover on and off and it’s really inconvenient for me. And besides I don’t really see anything wrong from feeding my daughter especially in public so I don’t get it when people awkwardly stare at me when I feed…

  • Cloud Dough Recipe

    Today, Zoe asked me if we can do another batch of playdough so she can make new colors of dough but I told her we’ll make a different one today. I decided to make a cloud dough so she can experiment with different textures. She loves sensory play so much loves touching flour when we’re baking too. What is a cloud dough? The consistency of Cloud Dough can be powdery like flour, moldable and a bit like damp sand.  It is perfect for moulding, shaping, squeezing, pressing and sculpting into different shapes. And, unlike playdough, the child can disintegrate this without any effort. It can be sent back to its…

  • Motherhood:Unfiltered

    Last July 11, 2018 Zoe and I attended our very first event. It’s something special to me not just because it’s our first event but because Mrs.Bianca Gonzales Intal will be there too. She’s one of my life peg and I always look up to her. From her book signing few years ago to mom and baby events now.     The main highlight of the event is when Mommy Bianca challenged us moms including herself to remove our makeup and go bare face. After all, without any makeup we are all still naturally beautiful.     Scrolling through my feed and seeing all beautiful moms, dolled up everyday, organized…
