Adorable Kids' Dresses at ZALORA Marketplace

"They may not really be made of sugar and spice and everything nice, but little girls will surely give you thousands of reason to smile." 

My little girl!

As a mother to a toddler girl, cute dresses and other girly stuff  always excites me. Those adorable accessories, shoes, laces, cheery prints, ruffles, simple to elegant dresses, unique tops and skirts, and having a wide selection and choices for dressing up makes some of the reasons why I love having a girl.

A recent buy is a mother-daughter terno set of summer dresses from a tiangge at the mall. I choose fashionable and fab, but budget friendly items only.

I contain myself of not buying branded items at regular price. Instead, I choose to wait until the price marked down and avail of selected SALE items to enjoy quality finds with huge savings.

Also, I found a lot of cute tops for baby girls on Zalora Marketplace as well as girls accessories, shoes, tutu skirts, dresses and other fashionable clothing for my mini me.

Good thing, I can enjoy a 15% discount of any items upon check out. They offer fashionable pieces with the extensive selection of kids' products.

Here's my personal choice in my wishlist that hopefully will be added on my empty cart:

BAILEY Peplum Swimsuit
SUMMER Tiered-Backless Top
Little Velvet Dress
POLKA-DOTTED Dress in Beige
Denim TROPICAL Dress
ZALORA offers comfortable and good quality dresses at the best prices, and having the convenience shopping in the comfort of our homes is a big plus!

As for me, I have gained trust and confidence shopping online as it satisfies my need for convenience and speed. Online discount offers becomes a welcome opportunity for me to save time and money. In fact, I got my latest online purchase at 60% OFF, a Big Children's wooden dollhouse for my little girl.

I came to realized just now that what makes me really giddy about all these 'daughter stuff' is that it becomes a perfect opportunity for me to relive my childhood memories and meant having a special  mother-daughter connection.

Cheers to more finds and bonding moments to come!

BDO- SM Muntinlupa Contact Number

I worked  before on a shifting schedule on my previous job at the Gaming Industry. I follow a crazy schedule back then; with that, I find it hard to transact on a regular banking hours.

Thanks to BDO, who solved this problem with providing longer banking hours that is conveniently located inside the mall.

Here's the complete details of my nearest branch, BDO SM Tunasan Muntinlupa, for reference:

La Vie Institute: Center for Personal and Professional Growth

Since I no longer work in a corporate setting, last week's event was a chance for me to wear make-up and use my 'bling-bling' (wooot!). Imagine how excited I was to received this kind of invitation so I confirm my attendance right away as it was conveniently located near our place.

Together with my fellow Mommy Bloggers, La Vie Institute allow us to preview one of their Programs: The Modern Woman's Workshop. The event was a half-day's worth of fun activity on Advanced Personal Make-Up Workshop and Fine Dining Etiquette.

The staff were very accommodating and I was overwhelmed by the warm welcome and professional approached. 

Ms. Monica, the Institute's Program Director, shares the story on how she originally plan to put up a preschool, but instead came up focusing with Personal and Professional growth workshops as a way to intensively work on student's character development.

It is undeniably true that due to the rigors of academic preparation, character development is forced to take a lower priority in most classrooms.

With the ever-increasing demands of today's society to be competitive and become 'number one', growing up in this world is now taking a serious toll than ever before.

Children are exposed to increased likelihood of being a victim to bullying or becoming a bully themselves because of this generation's desensitization to violence.

Parents are worried about being able to help foster their child when they have grown up in a totally different social landscape.

Young adults are overwhelmed by the big decisions they face as they transition into the real world and feel unprepared when they face the stiff competition in the job market. 

More and more professionals are disillusioned by the rat race and this cycle ripples into growing numbers of discontented, unhappy and fearful individuals.

It is to address these pressing needs that La Vie Institute was created. The name, directly translated from French to English, means "The Life Institute". The Programs are designed to bring the fruits of TOTAL Personality Development training to let you live the life you imagine for yourself and for your loved ones.

I strongly agree that providing a strong foundation is the key of making a successful individuals. As a mother, it is a tough job to set Character Education and Social Skills at today's Modern Technology.

It is not easy to teach Moral skills at today's world, with the emerging of social networks and trends, even some computer games glorify stealing, fighting, lying, and other forms of unacceptable behavior. So there, we have to innovate and redesign our way of teaching to  handle our child's formative years.

With this, I  totally agree with how this institute was designed to cater the need of working on Character Development and reinventing one's self regardless of age.

As I took part to experienced a bite of "The Modern Woman's Workshop" at a  World Class Facility at La Vie,  I came out looking good and feeling good about myself.

The make-up Studio. Need I say more on how mood lifting the place was?

with our Make-up Mentor, Ms. Mic Salazar

We're all too busy  highlighting our assets!
"Tuwang-tuwa kami sa nose contouring, obvious ba?"

Another reason to be happy, a Makeup Tool kit from #Suesh
Can't get enough of the make-up studio... I need to pose for a 'selfie'
Moving on with second part, The Fine Dining Etiquette with Ms. Vangie, our mentor. We were introduced to Menu Components and Terminologies. Do's and don't were discussed on Dining Etiquette and Table Manners.

A good reminder with what to do with the napkin: "The napkin is used for dabbing the mouth - you should never wipe, but dab!"

Italian Pasta was served courtesy of Mona Lisa Ristorante, as we practice not to cut, but to use a spoon to help twirl the pasta. I was doing good at first... uhmn, well, I really tried.

After the activities, we had a small chat discussing our personal take with Personality Development issues from our past and especially with raising our kids. 

It was such a great time having the opportunity to experience preview lessons from La Vie. Their Programs was uniquely design to cultivate the inner power of a person to shine the brightest. They offer a more holistic approach to personality development with their unique classes.

The following Programs were being offered:
I only had an afternoon with them but I felt inspired already of living a life of purpose and fulfillment. Talked about positivity!

We ended our day with these sweet treats:

Another take away from #happyeveraftersweets

Natural Cowhide Rugs For You

When it comes to your home, you want to make sure that you property is equipped with the best materials. After all, the look of your home says a lot about who you are. 

That's why you should definitely invest in a stylish and natural cowhide rug. These nature-made rugs provide so many different benefits to the homeowner.

Zebra Print Rug

Natural Beauty

One of the main reasons why people turn to cowhide for their rugs is because this material offers a unique combination of both colors and shapes. There are no two cowhide rugs that are exactly the same.

Sure, they come in similar shades of black and white, but each is different from the next. You can also tend to tell the breeds that each rug was made from based on the colors being used. For the most part, though, cowhide rugs come in solid black, gray, brown and white.

Remember, since animals come in all different sizes, you can find rugs that are small, medium and large.

Versatility Cow hide rugs do not have to be used for one specific reason. Instead, these rugs are very versatile. You can use cowhide rugs to adorn walls almost like a framed painting or as simply something to stand on.

The options are endless here. It's all about your personal taste in interior design.

However, many people like getting rugs made from cowhide because this material is actually very soft and comfortable. Besides using the cowhide as a wall hanging or rug, you can also turn it into a throw.

This will bring natural flair to any room in the house. It really is becoming the new wave in decorating.


It is important to note that cow hide is very tough. That means this material can withstand whatever you throw its way. This type of rug won't fall apart with the wear and tear.

Instead, it will stay looking the same way it did when you first got it. Cowhide is not only as tough as leather, but also very soft and pliable. That's why it makes for such a great rug.

Easy to Care For

Another reason why so many homeowners opt for rugs made out of cow hide is because they are super easy to clean. All you need is a damp sponge filled with warm water and some mild soap.

From there, just rub gently onto the spot covered with dirt and you will notice a real difference. Other than that method, you can also clean the cowhide by simply giving the rug a good shaking. This will fluff the thick coat and get rid of any debris that may be stuck in there.

Helps with Breathing

Homeowners love having a cowhide rug in their home because they won't have to worry about allergic reactions. That's because these rugs are actually hypo-allergenic which means you will be able to breathe freely in your home, while still bringing a charming and stylish piece to your home.

Press Release: Learn Ballet from Prima Ballerina Lisa Macuja- Elizalde

Nothing beats learning from the expert. When it comes to classical ballet, no one could ever surpass the achievements of Lisa Macuja- Elizalde.

Lisa started taking lessons in ballet at age 8. She would later become a scholar at the Vaganova Choreographic Institute also known as the Academy of Russian Ballet at Saint Petersburg, Russia. She is the first foreigner to join Russia's Kirov Ballet.

Lisa was the first artist-in-residence of the Cultural Center of the Philippines and in1995 she established her very own company, Ballet Manila. The company recently celebrated its 20th anniversary.

In 2014, Lisa celebrated 30 graceful years of stunning ballet performances. She has happily retired from performing and is now focused on mentoring future ballerinas as Directress of the School of Ballet Manila. Lisa's school is the only Philippine ballet school directly associated with the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet in St. Petersburg, Russia. 

"What makes us different from other companies is our commitment to the highest standards of classical ballet based on our Russian Vaganova roots," Lisa explains.

One of the main training techniques of classical ballet, the distinct characteristic of this style is the ballerina's flexible shoulder motion as each step is executed. Other dancers simply move with "square" shoulders.

"The Vaganova method involves the entire body. Arms, legs and torso move in perfect harmony. Dancers trained by this method jump higher and do powerful turns. The technique require dancers to remain in the air for a long time, as if they are floating," she said.
If your children are showing interest in dance, why not send them to ballet classes during the summer vacation? Ballet Manila offers several novel and fun programs for young and talented dancers. Apart from the basics of the dance art, the classes follow a holistic approach by including fun activities for a more engaging summer endeavor.

For example, apart from ballet techniques taught in the baby ballet class, the students learn to play musical instruments and create props using fabrics. The intensive dance exercises in the intermediate class is combined with street dance, yoga and pilates.

There will also be lectures on injury prevention, film screening about ballet and inter-active workshops with theater artists.

Playing Bingo during my leisure time

As you guys already know that I am a happy mother of two and love the small experiences that I share with each one of you. I hope that along with all the small things and all the information and tips on parenting your lives have become a little easier.

However, today I am in the mood to share some fun experience while I was indulging in a game of bingo online. Well I had put my kids to sleep and it was then that the thought of bingo struck me. I have played in many bingo sites but didn’t get the opportunity to try out NewLook Bingo a bingo site which is just a couple of years old and has also gone through a great make over just around December 2014.

I was super elated to win some easy cash in no time in their free bingo rooms. They have two free bingo rooms exclusively for their players and both funded and non funded players can play in these. However, the ‘Free Cash’ bingo room is exclusively for the funded players.

As a welcome offer I got a £15 simply for signing up and then there was the tenner that I spent and I got to play with a whopping £60. Also I loved their mobile bingo interface. Well I checked it out as I liked playing in there and hence thought that playing on the move would be great. If you travel a lot and if you need a hiatus from work then NewLook bingo on mobile would help you through the tiring phase.
