Last week of April and welcoming the first week of May. I can’t believe we’re down to the last month of summer and in a few weeks, it’s going to be back to school for my kids. Anyhow, the month of May has easily become my favorite because Mother’s Day is celebrated. And to be honest I really feel the love and support of people around me, who believe in me and my capabilities as a mother. As early as this week, a few brands have already sent their thoughtfulness my way.
Thank you Toblerone! These limited edition Mother’s Day sleeves are designed by celebrities like Isabelle Daza and Georgina Wilson.
Not a Mother’s Day packaged but it came just in time when my skin is dehydrated. I’ve been a Clinique user when I was in my early 20s. I got introduced to it by my sister who loves DDML (Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion) and I liked it to because it really moisturized my skin so well. Now Clinique launched their latest, Clinique iD. It’s an active catridge you can insert to your bottle of DDML. Clinique Philippines sent over a Clinique iD Lines and Wrinkles cartridge for me to try along with a Dramatically Different Oil-Control Gel. First impression during the first week I used this product is that it works well in our hot and humid weather because its lightweight.
Celebrated Labor Day at home since it was hump day. My kids and I wanted to go to the beach but then there’s work the next day so off we went to the pool to swim and get a tan instead. Heehee. A lot of you guys asked what was my suit in the story I posted that day. This one I bought from Swimsaic.ph.
Also had lunch at Eat Fresh just because its a holiday so I ordered the dishes I rarely eat–different kinds of sticks (yakisausage, lobster roll, fish tofu), curry hot pot and I also got a serving of black gulaman. #noregrets hihihi.
Discovered Australia Grapes are so sweet! These grapes are in season and is available at select supermarkets ( I think Rustans carries this!) Thank you Taste Australia Philippines for sending a crate. My family & I appreciate it.
I’m semi sorta obsessed with mustard yellow and tangerine orange colors lately. So when TenTen Nails sent their summer collection called Tropical Serenade, I immediately zoomed in on Monte Carlo. Love how it compliments my skin tone. You can purchase it online through https://nipponesthetic.com/shop/tenten-nail-color/
This week, I also discovered the brand Mary Ruth Organics. I admit I’m kinda drawn to anything gluten-free, sugar free and dairy free lately all because of my health & wellness (I’ll share more about my diagnosis on another post). So when I learned about Mary Ruth Organics and the products it offers, I was intrigued and ordered a bottle of their Liquid Nightime Multimineral. While I try to get 6-8 hours of sleep, most of the time, I sleep so light I wake up tired pa din. A week into trying this and I already saw the difference, I had deep sleeps and woke up feeling refreshed even if it was just 4-6 hours of sleep. I’m definitely ordering again! A bottle is at Php 2,400 and you can order through instagram.com/maryruthorganicsph/
These two cuties wearing witty statement shirts from Linya Linya. You can check out the different designs of this local brand over at their website www.linyalinya.ph
It was a week of basketball, swimming and art classes for these two. Next week they’ll start reading sessions. I tell ya, this summer is the busiest they’ve ever been. Busy but fun because they were the ones who chose what activities they’ll do. It’s challenging for me to manage schedule but like I said, summer is for them so I’m prioritizing their activities over my work.
Capped off the week celebrating Cinco de Mayo with these amazing people! I think this is the very first time my husband & I celebrated this festival.
