"Let Kids Be Kids" VS "Because I Said So"

One day, after I logged out from work, I received a thought provoking email from Google Alerts about an article from Parent Herald that talks about the 2 major parenting approaches. This really made me think about my parenting approach to Nate and I thought I should really share this with other parents.

In our current world where people will always have something to say, we all probably have an opinion about parenting, whether we have kids or not. There are main parenting approaches that most of us already know – The “because I said so” and the “let kids be kids approach”.

CLAG Women's Officers' Weekend Retreat

After our successful CLAG women’s fellowship, we, officers, finally had the chance to retreat and have fun before another fellowship comes – the Kid’s Camp, which we’ll also help organize. Unfortunately, our PIO and secretary didn’t make it due to schedule conflicts so it was just us: pres, v-pres, secretary and treasurer that made it.

There were 7 of us altogether, plus 3 little kiddos during this time. And for all the joy ride and chuckles we had during the trip, I am super thankful to God (most of all) for the experience, and to our president for their generosity. :)

Behold, the photos…

Musical Instruments That You Can Introduce to Your Kids at a Very Early Age

MUSIC… Oh… What will the world be without music?!
Music gives happiness to the soul, it heals a broken heart, it reminds us of our loved ones, it takes us to a completely different dimension, it’s our partner against boredom! Life is just incompletely without music, isn’t it?

Everybody loves music, specially here in the Philippines where most people are into music. I know! Videoke everywhere! lol. There are so many things that music can do, not just for adults but also for infants, toddlers and kids – it’s for everyone!  

Here’s a few of the many benefits that our children can get out of music:

Holiday Comes Early to SM San Mateo! ♥

Last Saturday, we dropped by SM San Mateo as my sister needed to buy school supplies for their school project. While we were there, I also decided to buy a few things for myself. Nate loves to play when in the mall, he loooves the elevator so much, he's willing to stay on there for hours! 

While there, we noticed the mall stage was all prepped up! There were kids doing some activities. We didn't really stopped and asked as it was getting late. Now I know what it was about! 

The holiday spirit is in the air and shoppers are in for tons of sparkling surprises as SM City San Mateo roll out fun activities for kids this holiday season.

Groupon Coupons for Our Love for Coupon Codes!

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own.

With the holidays coming, we have so many things on our list that we want to be able to purchase for our families, loved ones and our godsons/goddaughters. I have to be honest for the past week, I’ve been purchasing stuff that are not on my budget – I am so guilty of this. Some of them, I need for work, and some I thought can be great gifts for my loved ones and friends.

Tips for a Healthier, More Active Working Millenials

PHILIPPINES, October 27, 2016 – Herbalife Nutrition, a global nutrition company, has released the findings from its Asia Pacific Millennials At Work Survey, which revealed that Filipino millennials are adapting a healthy, active lifestyle, however, most believe their current workplace environment prevents them from doing so.

While the survey conducted reveals that more Filipino millennials (yes, most of us are part of this group, lol) are engaging in regular physical activities outside work, they find it difficult to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle in the modern workplace.

Sundayvotion: An Unloving Heart

Image Source:
This is part of my post about our CLAG Women's Fellowship. I just think that I need to post a separate post for this one as I think that it's a really good reminder for us (specially for me), as we can get too busy with the things that we do sometimes. 

Praise God for the life of our speaker, Ma’am Vholet Nabus, for preparing a wonderful lecture that was perfectly fit for us. We talked about the different signs that we no longer love the Lord. You see, most sins don’t happen overnight, most of it’s gradual, it most often start with a “little compromise” that continues on and before we know it, we already fall into the enemy’s traps! So during this fellowship, we were reminded to be alert. We needed to be watchful to the signs that we no longer love the Lord. Our lecturer said that, we no longer love the Lord when we start to become:

4 Foods That Cause Weight Gain

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I am currently doing workouts to lose my belly fats. It isn’t easy and it’s frustrating sometimes. Patience is very important (and I need TONS of that) to keep going.

I lessened my rice intake to almost like 75%, I eat A LOT before I started my home workout. Now, I can say that I am on my way to a flatter tummy (and hopefully and abs, lol!) but I’m still a work in progress. I try to choose healthy foods instead but there are also times that I can’t keep that goal.
We often think that eating healthy food is enough—therefore we expect a tremendous result for our weight loss. However, there are healthy foods that when eaten in huge amounts will only cause weight gain.

Here’s the top 4 list of foods to eat in moderation when you are on a “journey to a flatter tummy” program.

Wish For A Brother So Dear

My brother so dear, you may not be near;
But know that I care and I’ll always be here. 
You'are another year older, and no one’s gonna bother
But I know inside, you want to aim higher. 

Life is full of surprises, that you should expect;
It will try to turn you into pieces, you have to be brave. 
Don’t forget we’re here for you, we’ll help you in any aspect;
And God is there to guide and guard as long as you live.

Don’t worry about the future, let it worry about itself.
Enjoy every moment of your life and value yourself. 
Seek God’s presence and you will not be lost. 
Submit to Him your plans, you have nothing to boast. 

With all my heart I wish you joy and gladness, 
And a day that’s filled with happiness!
You are in our hearts today and always, 
We love you in all your ways!

Belated happy birthday, brother dear! ♥

4 Things that I Like About Blogapalooza Horizons 2.0

Months ago, we’ve already marked our 11.05 calendar for this year’s SECOND blogapalooza! Since I didn’t make it on the 1st Blogapalooza this year, I made sure that I’d make it on the 2nd Blogapalooza and I’m happy I made it!

Blogapalooza is a whole day event, so I was so torn on whether I should be part of the “early birds” or the “late comers”, lol. Or if I should go there early, leave around noon and just come back around 5 or 6 PM. I had to weigh my options. I wish I could stay the entire day but that's just not possible for now.

What You Need to Know About Hair Chemicals

Hair chemicals nowadays are everywhere. We use some of them everyday to keep our hair look nice and lovely. Unknowingly, sometimes, we put harmful chemicals on our hair thus resulting to general conditions such as migraine, nausea and skin rashes. The symptoms may be quickly attributed to stress but if you look closer to that hair product you’re using, you’ll be surprise to find the culprit.

Popularity does not equate to safety, some popular brands sold in the market are loaded with mildly toxic chemicals that may be harmful in prolonged use. 

The nature’s answer to hair loss, Novuhair, gives us the lowdown on these chemicals to help you with us with our choices of hair products to use.

Make Up 101 Session with Co-bloggers

Caption courtesy of Mhaan
Last Thursday was an out-of-the-ordinary day for me and my mommy blogger friends. We met in RamenCool once again for our first ever (informal) make-up 101 session. Thanks to our gorgeous friend Mhaan of Mommy Rockin’ in Style (and The Beauty Avenue) for teaching us the make-up basics. It was such a fun learning for us inside a cool, cozy meeting place in RamenCool, with the kids playing and messing around during the session! Lol! ZD was the best! He destroyed quite a few stuff, haha!
