My 2017 Goals

Tuesday, January 31


Last year, I wasn't really able to make some posts for my year 2016. A year has passed, and I could really say that I have gone tougher and stronger.



With 2016 a very trying time for me as a mom and as a wife - a homemaker to a small starting and growing family was like diving into deep water without having to know how to swim. That was how my 2016 last year started.


Those trying moments, I held on to my mom my dad and also my husband. I could not make it alive without them seriously!


I looked up to the sky too! Thinking what the hell have I gone myself into? It was a drastic moment, so this year if ever I will be given the chance, I would like to make small adjustments to my goals and strokes for motivations. I commit myself to growing more cautious on the food that I eat things that I prepare for my kids and family. This year, I commit to a healthy lifestyle most especially that my husband has been recently diagnosed with hypertension. One that is at the verge already so I am practically looking for ways to motivate him too for lifestyle changes. Hopefully, he gets  the drill and then lower his chances of other diseases accompanied by it.

Also this year, our country, the Philippines hosted the ever beautiful Miss Universe and Miss France, Iris Mittinaere won! Yay! She was my bet. Here is some of the quotes from Miss Australia who also happens to have the same definition for success as mine. 😁😁



The first month of 2017 is a very trying time again for us. It's like the things that happened from last year has some small aftershocks on this month to us. 

But hopefully, with the loving grace of God, we can still make it. One thing that I want to focus also for this year aside from health is to focus more on moving. Going around some more with the kids and spending moments with them more. Maybe by February we can do that? Who knows. 

There are a lot of things that I want to achieve this year aside from living a healthy lifestyle, I would liek to switch my travel mode on and spend some time with my kids outdoors. Also, in the plans are growing this blog of mine. It's been 8 years but I still have not reached my goal for this blog so I commit to that this year.

How about you? What are your goals for this year of the Fire Rooster?

Let me know in the comments below.

Stay fab!

5 Beauty Essentials for Makeup Artists

Monday, December 19



Yay it is already December! I cannot believe it's been a year since the day I went on full-time mommy mode. It has been a long time too since I posted my hauls on this blog, but today I will be sharing with you my Beauty/Skincare/Makeup Haul from BeautyMNL

My beauty haul! 😆😍😘







Used my phone to access the site, and shopped!




I have read so many blogs and posts already from my fellow beauty bloggers about BeautyMNL, but today I got to experience online shopping for beauty products from their site for the first time. 




BeautyMNL is the No.1 and Biggest Beauty Site here in the Philippines. What I love about this is that you can easily shop at the comfort of your home and discover new products, too. Perfect for busy/kikay moms like me. 😉


The Products that I got:



My longing for a blush and contour kit that is affordable and pigmented have been fulfilled with this one from Detail Makeover. I love the shades perfect for my morena skin. I'm just not that impressed with the highlight color though. But overall for 399 (it was on sale from 499 when I got it) this is worth a try.





I was looking for a makeup remover and since the Maybelline Micellar Water got sold out before I checked out I got this instead. It is actually my first time to use it and I am quite impressed how gentle it is on my face and it removes my makeup well decently plus it is affordable.






I bought this bottle because I was looking for an alternative makeup setting spray and also for skin care. I love that this is so affordable and I like that it has natural ingredients too. Based on the reviews from the site other shoppers are raving about this product. It's currently sold out.






I gave this product a try since I really wanted to eliminate the acne scars and dark spots on my face. I will be posting my detailed review on this product soon. So hope you can checkI love that I can use this in my underarms and bikini areas too. 😊



5. Dearberry Facial Cream (Freebie) 😍😘


What I love about the site is the easy access it has and a great range of beauty items. I also like that they provide beauty articles, too! It's like reading a beauty mag and shopping all at the same place. 😍

5 Resorts for that Quick Family Getaway

Sunday, November 20

Going on a vacation with my family has always been a dream for me. Growing up on an island gave us a lot of access to nearby beaches and mountain resorts. When we were young, I could not count the number of times we would visit the beaches of Liloan, Argao and some shorelines in Lapu-Lapu Mactan. 

Imagine having to bond and also eat out with your loved ones with the sand on your toes and the beach waves and the smell of sea in your hair. I am starting to miss the sound of the beach waves and smell of the seafoods like crabs, pusit and suaki as I write this post. Lol 😂

Now that I already have a family of my own, I would love to go wander around more with Adi and Ami. I want them to experience the same feeling and moments of my childhood with them. I think that it is in those times where we could truly feel more alive and connected with one another.

These are the 5 places I want to explore more myself alongside my small family and I simply could not wait to book hotels online through Travelbook.








An eco-chic boutique resort set at the beachfront of the Momo Beach in Panglao, Momo Beach House is an exciting destination that promises utter relaxation and a lot of time for some peace and quiet.

Spotlight: Puritan's Pride now available in the Philippines

Tuesday, June 7

Just recently, I have been making healthy meals for myself and the family.

Health is an essential part in every individual and in every home most especially to our family. Now that I am just at home watching and taking care of my toddler and new born baby. It has been a roller coaster ride with all the highs and it lows. I also experience hyper acidity recently, and just last summer I collapsed and how we survived the summer heat was also a very hard time for me. I felt depressed knowing that I am not fully capable to perform my job as a full-time mom and wife.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE SUPPLEMENTS I HAVE RECEIVED AND DEFINITELY TRY THEM OUT.
I will have to consult first with my doctor as currently I am nursing and will definitely need a consultation before taking anything.

Puritan's Pride one of the leading health supplements and vitamins brand in the USA is now in the Philippines via Puritan's Pride PH (www.puritanspride.ph)
