Announcement: Bubble Man Dishwashing Liquid Giveaway Winner

Dear Friends,

I would like to thank you for joining Bubble Man Dishwashing Liquid Giveaway! I feel so happy to know that many of you are willing to experience the benefits that I'm having right now while using the product.

Bubble Man is gentle on hands. I am not using gloves in cleaning and washing dishes. It doesn't remove my skin's natural oils which makes me love it more! It doesn't make my hands dry and itchy. Its easy rinse formula makes it safer to use. It doesn't leave any residue or smell which makes it safer to use in cleaning feeding bottles. I invite you to have a glimpse of my review again to see why I switched to Bubble Man. Read my review HERE. 

Without further ado, I would like to announce the lucky winner of Bubble Man Dishwashing Liquid Gift Pack! The winner was chosen through

Here she is... Tada!

Congratulations, Miss Lorie Nocasa! Please wait for my email. I'll get a few details from you so that I'll know where to send your prize!

By the way, I have a new giveaway. You may want to join too! Here's the link:

Thanks again and have a great day!

Hey, I'm Still Here!

Hi, friends! How are you? I hope you are fine! I'm in blogging hiatus for three weeks due to big changes and unexpected happenings in my family and WAHM life

Papa and I implemented the NO GADGETS RULE here at home starting November 12 while the kids were awake because our exposure to gadgets and internet within a time frame was not effective at all. We, adults, sacrificed our chance of working online while the kids were awake. It was very hard to adjust for awhile but we were reaping the benefits. There was a sudden change in the way we behave as individuals and as a family. There was less time to communicate with friends and clients through social media and to do blogging. But we had more family time and there was a positive effect concerning our personal behaviors.

Orders online started to come.  I could only entertain clients and respond to their personal messages, process orders, ship parcels, again, when the kids were asleep. I was so blessed that my clients were understanding.

Bunso just turned four and we were preparing him for big school. However, we had to start working out on certain issues like his fine motor skills, speech, and personal behavior, as prescribed by his developmental pediatrician. 

Someone's hands were tied and I had to make ends meet. Being at home taking care of Bunso, tutoring Kuya, managing the house, and doing business related tasks without a helper weren't easy but I had to face them all with so much vigor and enthusiasm

Being a mom is not easy, but it's worth it!

My First Sunshine Blogger Award

 Yay! I feel so blessed, touched, and honored to be tagged as a Sunshine Blogger Awardee!

The feeling is like winning the lottery! It's like blushing when being noticed by Hubby how nice I look on my make-up or new stylish dress, getting lots of hugs and kisses from my kids, and being ecstatic while watching Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler on screen. I'm still euphoric upon receiving this. I'm speechless.  

This is one of the best perks of being a blogger. Meeting wonderful people in person and online who appreciate your presence is something that money can't buy. 

This is my very first blogger award. What makes it more special, it's given by someone whom I respect and adore! That's Mommy Marie San Luis of Mamanee's Nest

It doesn't stop from being tagged alone. I have to continue the chain by choosing my own Sunshine Blogger Awardees. I have so many names in mind, mostly mommy bloggers because I'm so blessed to be part of Mommy Bloggers Philippines. All mommies in our group are so nice and supportive. They all deserve this award. Unfortunately, I have to choose only 11 bloggers.  

I listed 20 names and I realized that most of them were already tagged. Until finally the list dropped to 11 bloggers. 

Tada! Here they are!

1. Kyong of Mom Chronicles
2. Mary Joy Del Pilar of Happiness of Joy
3. Jennelyn Cristobal of Pretty Practical Mom
4. Janice Lim of The Rollercoaster Ride
5. Patricia Cuyugan of Mrs. C's Sugarcoated Life
6. Hazel Ann Cuarez-Asoy of Style Hazel
7. Eloisa Co of Kikay Si Maria
8. Joey Tibayan of Dragon Chatter
9. Pehpot Pineda of Mommy Pehpot
10. Rochelle Pineda of The Pixie Reader
11. Shari Jansen of Miss Donya Me

Here are the rules: 

1. Post a picture of the Sunshine Blogger Award. 
2. Answer 11 questions from the nominating blogger.
3. Link back to the blogger who nominated you.
4. Nominate 11 wonderful bloggers that you feel bring sunshine to the blogging world.
5. Write 11 questions for your nominated bloggers.

Here's the 11 questions from Marie:

1. Do you believe in reincarnation? 
    No. I don't believe in reincarnation.

2. If yes to number 1, who do you think you were before? If no, what is your stand?
    I believe that each person is unique and only lives once.

3. Name 3 things that you cannot leave your house without. 
    I can't leave the house without my umbrella, make-up kit, and coin purse (where my  keys are placed too). 

4. What did you put in your high school yearbook as your future occupation? 
    None. We were not asked about it. But if the school did, without batting an eye I would say that I wanted to be a physician.

5. Christian Grey or Edward Cullen? 
    Edward Cullen...Kilig to the bones!!!!!

6. What's your dream house like? 
    It doesn't matter how it looks like or how big or small it is as long as it's filled with prosperity, love, and happiness.

7. Favorite reality star?
    I'm not a fan of reality shows. The only one that I watched from start to finish was Junior Master Chef Pinoy Edition and my favorite kiddie chef was Kyle Imao.

8. What's your cannot do without make up? 
    I can't go without wearing a tinted lip balm or lipstick.

9. Who is your greatest hero? 
    My Mom is my greatest hero. She taught me how to be the person that I am right now. I am a self-directed person because of her.

10. What is your greatest pet peeve? 
      I feel nauseated and agitated when the house is cluttered. Before I can concentrate in doing my tasks, even if it takes so much time, I have to declutter first.

11. What is your happy thought? 
      Knowing that God, my family and friends, and other people care and love me despite my imperfections, that thought makes me happy.

Here my 11 questions for my 11 chosen bloggers:  

1. Do you believe in destiny? 
2. If your answer is yes to number 1, why? If no, why not?
3. Who inspired you to become a blogger?
4. How did he/she influence you?
5. If given a chance to turn back time, what will you change? Explain your answer.
6. What is the most ridiculous situation you've had? How did you handle it?
7. If given the power to become the President of the Philippines for a day, what will you do?
8. A superhero will hand you his/her super power. What do you think will that be?
9. What is your greatest achievement so far? 
10. What is your comfort food? 
11. What is your greatest dream? 

I really enjoyed it! Hope you will too! Pass it on!
Have a great day!

Happy Mother's Day!

A mother's life is full of priceless moments. Goldilocks wanted to explore what it's like to raise a child, from baby to boy all the way through independent young man by capturing them through video. 

The choice to shoot entirely in the first person perspective is to put the viewers in the eyes of a mother so they can better appreciate that they're always there for us. 

This is what it feels like to be a mom. A mom who is always there, through thick and thin through the years.

"One lamp, thy mother’s love, amidst the stars shall lift its pure flame changeless, and before the throne of God, burn through eternity, Holy, as it was lit and lent thee here."
                                                                -Nathaniel Parker Willis

Happy Mother's Day to all beautiful moms in the world!

Thank You so Much for Keeping Up with All-Around Pinay Mama!

Dear Friends,

Good day! 

I am writing this letter to thank you all for keeping up with me.

I am blessed that I have a chance to share my life with you through blogging. 

I am an introvert. I am more confident in expressing myself through writing since high school. Mahiyain po talaga ako pero nagiging kikay rin kapag lumaon.

I started blogging two years ago but it seemed like there was no direction. When I decided to know what I should be as a blogger, I became active on mid-2013 and everything fell into place. The fire that I had in me 12 years ago started to ignite again. It felt so right, nobody could stop me from blogging.

I blog not just to make it as my diversionary activity to survive the ups and downs of motherhood and married life.  Recommendations of products that work but inexpensive, quick and easy recipes, practical tips for home and living, my life as a frugal homemaker and home-based business woman/crafter, and my memories as a teacher are the things I believe that I can share to moms out there to find motherhood blissful and fun without spending too much money and time.

I feel so elated and happy when comments and appreciation in all forms come because of my articles. It gives me the sense of purpose and direction. Somehow, in my own simple way, there are people who are stopping by and learning something from me. Nakatataba po ng puso. I am so thankful from the bottom of my heart. You, my readers, make me driven to share more. Maraming salamat po sa inyo!

When companies and groups feature my articles on their social media sites and websites, BONUS po ito sa akin. It helps me reach out to more people other than my regular readers, hoping that I could also impart something to them too. To the companies and organizations who featured my articles, maraming salamat po sa inyo
