Two Thousand Sixteen

Temple visit: My little Miss Universe and me wearing Zalora dress

Old habits die hard, so they say. I made random #newyearresolutions last week after an unplanned trip to our Kumare’s house; we will never run out of snack or groceries inside our fridge. From now on, we’ll have healthy options, limit our spontaneous trips, infrequent coffee houses and stop taking cabs as the only means of transportation to everywhere.

Until the morning of January 1st, we embarked on our first ever “unplanned trip”. One resolution failed already. This was the first thing I wrote and burned during our New Year Countdown celebration but broke the same thing 6 hours right after. Unplanned trips are always the best but they can be the most expensive at times. Tell me I’m not alone, lol!

Anyway, I’m not giving up completely. Our fridge is crammed with healthy food and snacks and I’ve been eating fish on a daily basis since the start of 2016. Yay.  We’re off to a good start with my baby girl stacking on carbs and my husband playing basketball an hour a day.

These past few weeks were absolutely a blast, I’ve been caught up with loads of parties and sleepovers that I hardly find time to update my blog. There are a lot of things I need to include on my New Year Resolutions’ List (mostly connected with blogging) but sometimes these goals/dreams of mine are so precious, that one way or another, it’s something I would rather do than talk about. ;)

Happy 2016 everyone! (here are few snapshots from our holiday)

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

How To Instantly Add Luxury To Your Wardrobe

As you have probably guessed, I literally spend a good part of my day shopping online. Yep, when major sales popped out, I'll stop what I'm doing to catch a glimpse on which of those pieces look good on me. To the point, I recently spent a morning scrolling through a dozen items on shopping websites. Making me the perfect target consumer when it comes to social media marketing ads. Ha! Sadly, however, I can’t possibly purchase everything on my wishlist and so every now and then I blog about my current favorites hoping somebody can benefit from the fruits of my labor. While there are specific brands I love to cover on a weekly basis today I like to highlight and celebrate similar brands for cheap yet elegant staples to give you more unique and fashion-forward options. Just keep scrolling to get started shopping and see a couple of elegant dresses to keep your outfit on point.

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.
