DIY hair removal using Strip It Sugar Wax

When I became a mom, I lost tolerance for waiting in line for my turn inside waxing salons.  Though I enjoy the convenience of having someone else do all the “dirty work” for me, I’d rather spend the precious minutes cuddling with my baby or doing some other mommy errand.  So I looked for hair…

Hey Mom Online Shop for Children’s Vitamins and Medicines

Because there seems to be an extended rainy season in the Philippines, it’s not surprising that cough and colds season also extended. My husband and I recently caught the C&C virus, and because we wanted to spare Baby Tash from catching it too, we knew we had to give our child vitamin supplements. Because this…

Merries Diapers: No. 1 baby diaper in Japan is now in the Philippines

Since I became a mommy, diapers have invaded a portion of my closet.  Like other moms of newborn and toddlers, I’ve learned that these baby products, whether reusable cloth or disposable, are one of the baby essentials that should never run out in our household. Diapers are now as important as my favorite facial wash….

My Breastfeeding Must Haves

Breastfeeding is one of the noblest responsibilities of a mother.  While everybody knows that it’s not an easy task, there are things that will help make a mother’s breastfeeding journey as smooth as possible. A certified nursing mom, whether she’s exclusively breastfeeding or mixed feeding, certainly has her very own breastfeeding kit.  It’s now as…

Diapers on sale at Baby Company

Diapers (and their side kick baby wipes) are important baby items that are always part of mommy’s shopping list. Because we all know how expensive these baby items are, I got excited when I learned about the Diaper Deals promo of Baby Company. The Diaper Deals offers parents great savings and freebies on select diapers…

Vitress Instant Relax

I don’t have hair that naturally remains beautiful throughout the day. I also have neither the talent and patience to style my hair for hours nor the extra cash to hire a stylist everyday. This is the reality I face every morning. Do I need to spend time to blow dry my hair or just…

Organic Baby Food Jars from Earth’s Best and HiPP Organic

Convinced on how organic baby food is better for my baby than other commercial infant foods, I started my search for organic baby food in the Philippines.  Though I believe preparing home-made baby food is still the best option as it is safer, healthier, more cost-effective, I honestly think there’s nothing wrong to feed her these safe alternatives. 

Smart Parenting Convention 2017

Because I gained a lot of freebies and wisdom from its previous events (Smart Parenting Baby Shower and Smart Parenting Baby and Birth Workshop) when I was still pregnant, I made sure not to miss the first ever Smart Parenting Convention. So though I had to tag along my 9 kg baby girl (Thanks to…

Lots of mom’s Haakaa photos have been invading my social media feeds lately.

Babymama PH: A paradise for the breastfeeding mom

My first time mom bucket list includes a trip to Babymama PH, a one-stop shop for breastfeeding-related products in the Philippines.  Though this breastfeeding shop has a website where you can conveniently place your orders for delivery, I opted to visit its store in Ortigas. Luckily, my visit didn’t go to waste.  This shop is…

Happy Skin Moisturizing Lippies

I was a beauty product noob.  When I was single, my kikay kit was so spacious. It only housed a pressed powder, a lip balm, a comb, and a bottle of cologne.  I did a lot of attempts to use trendy lippies, facial creams, and other beauty stuff my kikay friends raved about, but sadly,…

Pre-natal Vitamins Pre-natal vitamins are very important during pregnancy.  These…

Newborn Product Checklist

There are a lot of newborn product checklists available online, but not everything is suitable for me.  So I carefully selected a newborn stuff list that is tailor-made for mom and newborn in the Philippines. I ended up using Baby Company’s comprehensive check list. Of course, I did not buy everything on the list.  Fortunately, some items…
