Argan-Sale

Morena Mom for Great Argan Sale Year 2

Skin is the largest organ of our body, have you heard of that? Sure you do!
Eating healthy (tons of greens, water, and fiber), getting enough sleep and a lot of exercise were the stuff that I am guilty of not doing or at least wasn’t able to do these days. Yes, over and over again, motherhood is my excuse. Laughs. Who doesn’t want glowing skin? Most of my mommy friends rave about the miracle of argan oil.

Morena Mom: A Hey Sugar Waxing Salon Branch in Robinsons Galleria!

I am in the business of pampering myself lately just to strike a balance with motherhood. Moms, you know how mommyhood is, right? And so, I had my facial, a trim for my mane and a foot spa with gel polish pedicure.

My go to mall is Robinsons Galleria as it doesn’t have that huge crowd and the commute not a hassle compared to its neighbor malls, this is if my agenda is not shopping during SALE. Wandering inside, I discovered Hey Sugar Waxing Salon is newly opened!

HortiKultura-Filipina-2018

Morena Mom for Horticulture and Hortikultura Filipina 2018

I am excited about HortiKultura Filipina 2018. This will be on be on 2-11 February 2018 at the QMC Gardens, Diliman, Quezon City. A festival that will showcase PH’s endemic, indigenous and hybrid plants that aims to promote the Quezon Memorial Circle (QMC) as a showcase place for gardening and horticultural practices in Metro Manila and the entire country. It is celebrated annually, together with its partners, as the largest horticultural event to be held in the Philippines.

We are a homeschooling family, this festival can be a great exposure for our pre-K, I reckon. Definitely something that can pique his interest, one way or another.

Besides my awesome husband, babywearing gives my motherhood journey some sort of ease. That is why whenever there’s an event related to it I take the opportunity to show my support.

A Morena Mom Story: Why Insure A Car?

Imagine you are riding in a car with your family; your husband in charge of the steering wheel, your firstborn riding shotgun while you and your second child sitting side by side at the back seat–all strapped with the seat belt traveling to your in-laws. Safe right? No problem. For some unfortunate twist of fate, somebody bumped the left side of your car. Oh, a dent that’s hard to ignore! Nothing you cannot handle because it’s just the car, no member of the family was harmed or earned even a scratch. Question is, is your car insured?

Morena-Mom-HeyMom

Morena Mom’s HeyMom Experience

Paying our bills or buying grocery items has become a hassle for me. For a yayaless mother, I have to prep my children and myself before I could go out of the house and do some errands. Either that or (most of the time) I will just wait for my husband to pay or buy after his work at 5:00 PM. Is there no easy way for this? That’s what I always ask myself when being given that situation. Over time, I learn to utilize online options available like for grocery items, online banking and shopping some fashion pieces. What I haven’t found yet then was an online store for my kids’ vitamins and medicines. Hassle is an understatement; I hate long lines–a baby on the carrier and a 4-year-old on my one hand. I did not mention the weather here yet. Because a rainy day or super sunny day, both no good for the given situation.

Elijah with Chickie Boy

Party With Chickie Boy On Your Kid’s Next Birthday Party

It’s always been nice to dine at Max’s Restaurant for our small family. Twas cozy enough provided the budget I can shell out compared to other restaurants available. Yes, I find it affordable for the notable service and ambiance they offer.
But what I haven’t explored yet was their party packages, until we were invited to Chickie Boy’s birthday party.

Fatigue

Why is Vitamin D important?

Moms like myself have so much in our plates–we run the house, yes? One of our duties is to keep our family healthy and away from diseases.

There are tons of letters for vitamins but I’ll focus on Vitamin D as this is what my son is deficient of. It is said that this is needed for calcium absorption among infants. However, 7 out of 10 Filipinos are Vitamin D Deficient. If Vitamin D Concentration in the mother’s breast milk is low (which, as studies show, is usually the case), this may lead to Vitamin D Deficiency in infants.

Merries Diaper

Merries Diapers now in PH!

There are a lot of diapers in the market, and yes you have to find the brand(s) that suits your baby. I saw Merries diaper one afternoon in one of our trips to the supermarket for groceries. I did not pay much attention as I wasn’t familiar with the name.

Luckily, Merries Diapers sent me samples that I can try. I learned that it’s Japan’s #1 baby diaper brand for 10 consecutive years. How exciting that it’s now available in the Philippines!

KeziBaby5

Giveaway alert: Kezi Baby

The mommy behind Kezi Baby the baby shop which offers headbands, shoes or onesies/shirt and terno dresses for mom and toddler experienced exactly the same thing when her Nathalie Keziah was born. She gets comments like “Pogi naman ni Baby” or “Boy yan?” as she only puts on white wardrobe for her newborn baby girl to easily see insects on it etc.

Elija's Meal

Meal and Baon Tips from Good Eats for Moms Workshop

Motherhood has many challenges, that’s what I realized in this almost 4-year journey I’m in. More to come, I’m sure. The latest challenge I face now is how to pursuade my 44-month old little guy to eat what’s on the table and to not ask for hotdogs or corned beef. More so, to plan and come up with inviting, amazing meals for him. Can I sigh on this part? Because I also ran out of meal ideas for my husband’s packed lunch.
