On Keeping Up Appearances as a Mom

Hey Mommies,

First thing first, we did an amazing job creating our babies and we deserve all the love and praises no matter what size we are currently in. Of course, it was an amazing battle we hardly ever fought - but we won! And we can all nod in agreement that the moment a tiny little being stole our hearts and entered the no 1. spot in our lives, our priorities and perspectives in life began to diverge. I don't know about you but my youthful thinking and beliefs began to vanished and so with my looks. So long forever-young goals and appearances!

But don't fret, as KIM K very well put it and which I definitely agreed on, just because I'm a mom doesn't mean I'm dead. I believe we can still be pretty confident while trying our best maneuvering our time to save the world.

Exercise for a Healthy and Fit Body

For many years, I've been putting exercise and being body fit at the bottom of my priority. I went back to work 45-days after giving birth and oh man, the advancement in my career decreases my energy for everything that involves my baby and I'm often too tired. The solution; a realistic schedule and exercise plan. But who would have time to go to the gym when we have more tasks and responsibilities than the hours of the day? When we have more pressing concerns like SLEEP for instance? Good news you don't have to go that route!

There are many ways and option to do it without messing up your schedule and lifestyle. I wake up extra early in the morning to jog around the house with Chloe and the puppy. You can put your baby in a stroller and go for a walk early morning. Turn on the TV and do some Zumba dancing. Or better yet you can download a 7-minute workout app that lets you pick a workout that fits into a small time you have. It's free and helps keep your exercise options interesting in just a very quick 7 minutes - so you could spend more time chasing the kids around the house. 

Ditch the Mommy Uniform and Just Be you!

I admit it, it takes months for me before I traded my loose T-shirt, Joggers, Mom up-do (because I haven't washed my hair for days) and my oldie but goodie sneakers for my now fashion stylin' while mommin' uniform.

I'm not an expert but looking good doesn't mean doing the full face of makeup or a blowout to take your kids to school. Or why not, if you scare people with your no-make up look? I love double duty beauty products that can work as a blush on, eye shadow and lipstick when I'm on a run. I went an extra mile and master the capsule wardrobe I can mix and match in so many ways. I love accessories that add oomph to my outfit or a staple style horse you can dress up or down. Jumpsuits are always my go-to when I'm in a rush and needs to get ready in a minute.

But if you choose comfort over style that's totally okay too. Only by knowing what works best for you and choose the right pieces to help you juggle with your mom duties comfortably.

Let Your Healthy Glowing Hair Do the Talking!

Earlier this week, Dhel asked me what's the best haircut for him as he hates the way his hair looks and grows thinner these days. I told him I wanted a rebonding treatment for my dry coarse hair too so we can go together. Let's call it a date? Lol

Regardless of whether you are a mom or a dad, our hair gets thinner as we get older. Our hair is our crowning glory so why do we give it so little care? It might sound excessive but our hair needs quality multivitamin too. Go straight to the source and nourish the inside by taking a supplement. It is best when you take one with biotin every morning and evening for healthier and stronger hair.

So again, mommies even if we are working full-time or part-time with our mommy duties our body deserves to be celebrated from head-to-toes. And all it takes is a little TLC and absolutely zero hating only pure body love.

Thanks a lot for reading!

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

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.

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.
