Review: The 2-Week maxCEEmum effect

I’ve been interested in skin care products since I turned 40. If you’re in your 40’s, I’m pretty sure you understand that skin health is no longer something we can put aside. Not unless, of course, if we make it an option to just let skin trouble happen to us. I’ve been told more than once in my youth that my skin was my biggest asset. But when I turned 40, I started experiencing skin problems, not just on my face, but on other parts of my body, like eczema, skin tags, dry skin, age spots and for crying out […]

Our First Big Bad Wolf Book Sale Manila Experience

I didn’t get to watch TV for a big part of my childhood. TV was, in our parents’ opinion, those days’ gadgets that staled kids’ brains and dumb us down. So, instead of updating myself on the popular sitcoms, I spent my growing up years poring over Nancy Drews, Agatha Christies and Erle Stanley Gardners; I giggled at young love in Sweet Dreams and Sweet Valley Highs, and graduated to the likes of Sidney Sheldon and Danielle Steele by High School.

How we lost our wedding photos There […]

Home Dating with the Hubby

I love spending time with my husband. He’s my most favorite companion in the world. Not that I can live without friends (only some of them, LOL!), but my favorite moments are the ones I get to spend with Jay. Jay and I try our best to set time for our dates, but it seems a little challenging for us in our current season, especially that we don’t have a nanny to look after our kids. But you know, I’m proud of us because we’ve figured out creative ways to ”date” even when the children are around. One of these […]

On Young Love

Living with a thirteen year old is quite a tricky thing. He’s a teenager, but not quite old enough (or mature enough) to be let go completely. We do give our son, Pablo, a little more room to try to do things on his own. He can go to the mall with his friends, take himself to a couple of his trainings, and I no longer chaperone him to his parties. His dad and I are fully aware that he’s at that age when he wants a little more independence for himself. I read about it in my favorite book […]
