You don’t need to use most of your vacation credits, nor have to spend too much time and money traveling to a faraway destination just to have a vacation. You can just stay within the city, shop and dine, explore corners unknown, and then relax in a comfortable hotel room at night.

Great Campaign From Johnson’s: Naturally Beautiful MOMents +GIVEAWAY

I love how Johnson’s has this advocacy to empower moms and remind us that it’s the moments born from those not-so-picture-perfect realities of motherhood; tantrums, whining, endless whys, unexpected ugly  (upset tummy) episodes in a restaurant while you should be enjoying your meal, stained treasured clothing pieces all these that you and I survived.

Mommy Break: Jump With China + Giveaway

Whenever we are at the mall, Elijah often request to play at the pay-per-hour play areas. I let him because he doesn’t have much choices (stations to play in) and playmate (aside from his sister) whenever at home. In short, he was confined with his not-so-many-toys and books inside our house. This is also a time for me to relax a bit while sitting there waiting for his time at the play area/center to be finished.

Morena Mom Cooks: Sautéed Broccoli Paired with Fried Tuna

On my list of menu for the week, one of the meals I cooked for them is this Sautéed Broccoli Paired with Fried Tuna. Why did I say that this is a healthy dish for my Eli and Ella? Broccoli and Tuna were good sources of protein, iron, magnesium, carbs, fiber, minerals and potassium. In terms of vitamins, there is a wealth of vitamin B12 and niacin, as well as a good amount of vitamin B6 and riboflavin. My daughter is under a weight gain plan, if I may mention. That’s why I am very intentional of what I feed her (them) these days.

Morena Mom Thoughts: We owe to ourselves to feel and look great.

Who doesn’t like to look pretty at least in the eyes of their husbands? Or relatives to assure them that you’re doing fine although overwhelmed with motherhood. Or just feel beautiful for yourself, right?

Our hair is our crowning glory. Best thing about this is that we can experiment with it and make it appealing. Boring hair is no fun! Human hairs can be in whatever style; curly hair, with bundles or pixie cut like mine. 

Morena Mom Story: We Are Now Using Feeding Bottles

Our dearest Ella has a health issue and is under a weight gain program. It includes more protein intake as the physician suspects that my body isn’t producing milk to address enough caloric absorption — I also noticed that I am no longer experiencing engorgement anymore. “Of course, your system will prioritize the unborn baby inside you.” she explained. We were advised to give vitamins and milk supplement.

Do You Also Believe That Love Is Action?

One thing I figured about motherhood is, it is overwhelming yet very fulfilling.
I don’t complain. I won’t complain as I have a wonderful husband. He is a great provider and overly understanding. Every time he goes back from work to a messy house–toys and books on the floor– he smiles and understands. Oh I love him so so much. Come weekends, he has no work. More often than not I will wake up to a husband busy doing the dishes or washing the dirty electric fans, scrubbing the bathroom walls while the washing machine is in full swing with the laundry.

Morena Mom Product Review: Aveeno Baby

We survived the summer and its scourging heat through frequent bathing and shower.

My kids don’t have a super sensitive skin but it tends to react to the summer weather. My little girl Ella developed some rashes on her nape over the summertime. That’s when I decided to try Aveeno Daily Wash & Shampoo together with the Soothing Relief. I first saw my best friend using these products and I was hesitant to try back then. It wasn’t until I purchased some Aveeno Baby items during a big sale of a membership shopping store.

Family is a Gift Conference by Couples For Christ (CFC)

I truly believe that family being the smallest and most critical unit of our society, we should do everything in our power to strengthen and nourish the bonds within it.

For our little family, Paulo and I figured that it will greatly help us as young parents and couple to be involved in a community centered to please and serve our Lord. Thus, we are members of Couples For Christ (CFC). We get our regular dose of spiritual nourishment through household bible studies, fellowships, encouraged personal bible studies, praying if the rosary with your family and enriching conferences.

Morena Mom Shares: Yoga for Pregnancy, discounts and more!

I am a mother of 2 children plus another one on the way. This baby number three will come out in more than two months from now.

Recounting my previous pregnancies, the last delivery was the easiest for me. Comparing the two, I figured the only difference I made was I had a Yoga class with my second childbirth.

And so with this third pregnancy I am adamant to do Yoga again. Searched and I saw Yoga Download.
