We know how tempting it is for us, parents to plan every detail of our child’s life - from her toys to her closet, her first day in school, her dental and medical insurance, her playmates, her brand of milk, her spoken languages and most specially her 1st birthday (or is it just me? hahaha )– so that at the very least we can pretend that we have some sort of final say on how everything in her life will unfold.

I’d start with her first birthday.

Initially I planned to take her “under the sea” along with family and friends and enjoy a sea shore party. But then again the budget is so tight and as long as possible I want to keep everything simple like an intimate dinner on our favorite restaurant. But my husband has a very good point at emphasizing that Chloe have the rest of her life to do that and for now, let kids be kids. 

What’s left for me to do? But to throw her a “Mickey & Friends” house parteyy.

And the outcome was beyond our expectations with only me and my husband planning and working on the “garage”. I gave him the idea and he did the whole activation. I know Chloe does not understand the importance of things by now but for sure someday she will realize things and would appreciate how hard her dad worked for this.

In due time, her life is her own adventure and we would let her live it her best way possible, with us, only as her cheerleaders every step of the way.

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron Review: Is it worth it?

I started using flat irons since I was 18 years old (well, that was 12 years ago?) and I’m amazed at how the industry of hair straighteners had come. Man, I think we're missing out on some great deal. Flat iron over the years, We all know the humble beginnings of hair comb or some may call them hair thongs which are made of two rods heated to straighten the hair. I never get to use this one as I was introduced to the second generation of hair straighteners and that was using a standard home clothes iron. Nah, I mean the basic flat irons made with metal plates and few heat settings. Not until the early 2000s when I saw this model with ceramic plates that most people use today. Ceramic is by far the most popular material for this product as it is both inexpensive and actually safer compared to the clothing iron or heating rods back in days. Depending on your hair type, ceramic plates are believed to lock in moisture and protect hair color. But with a lot of this model

Weekend Well Spent

Last week was kind of breezy to the point where I thought it was already Friday when I’m only in the middle of my week, which is odd because when I’m excited for something and I’m looking forward to it every single day, it makes my whole month moved into a slow motion and I’m like bored to death. Gladly, my weekend didn’t pass by so sudden that I got to enjoy it with people dearest to my heart to the fullest. I love weekends so much that I decided not to care about laundry or cleaning the house (sort of) but just spend the whole two days enjoying the cold weather which means more sleeps and longer walks to the mall. Last weekend, we ate breakfast in our PJ’s, had brunch in the street food shops, enjoyed salmon and some surprisingly affordable tasty Japanese cuisine, scored some discounts on baby clothes and winter shirts, did some window shopping, had a half dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for dessert and just cuddled and sang nursery rhymes at the top of our lungs.
