When kids talk

I made this blog with the intention of sharing girly things like fashion, beauty and make-up. But eventually I feel like I also have to verbalize about my personal, daily, thoughts and sentiments.  So with the desire of being organized, I made a new blog separating my girly passion from the more personal ones. After posting two entries, I got tired and lazy, in short I failed.  I can’t maintain two blogs especially I am kinda particular about the design, template and so on. Hahaha. Honestly, it is because I am just too lazy.  So here I am turning my blog into a hodgepodge of random thoughts, exemplifying my indecisiveness.  I just hope that my blog will still be worthy and not as to what I fear to be – dull and boring. 

So let me get started…

You may be thinking right now that my title has nothing to do nor irrelevant to what I just said; well, It is in fact the literary meaning of what this post will be about.  When kids talk. When my kids talk. If it happens that you don’t know that I already have two kids at such a very young age, then don’t get shock nor get me wrong.  I am twenty three years old and yes, I already have a four year old daughter, and a three year old son. It may be too early but it is my fate and I am proud, happy about it.

As we all know that being a mom no matter what age you are isn’t easy. If you’re a mom or you care and have observed what your mommy does then you’ll probably know what I mean.  It is no way an easy task. It is a lifetime duty.  A 24-hour job that you are willing to sacrifice all the time you have; just to comply with your child's needs and sometimes his/her wants.  No, you cannot give all the things he/she wants. It is limitless and not the ideal way to raise a child even if you’re the richest person in the world.  However, on the contrary, being a mom is proven to be the most fulfilling, wonderful, inexplicable feeling a person could ever have. 

Unbelievable sights, indescribable feeling, Soaring, Tumbling, freewheeling through an endless diamond sky. - suddenly remembered the song from the movie, Alladin.

So before I talk about a lot of things and change topic, I’ll now share you some of the simple, ordinary yet momentous conversations/communications of my kids that always put a smile on my face every time I think of it. 


My mom called and said that my dad is coming to Manila in two weeks. She talked to my baby boy.

Mom: baby boy, what do you want for pasalubong?
Baby boy: I want ben-10.
Mom: ahh okay, ben-10 lang pala.
Baby boy: yes, ben-10, ben-10 na laptop.

*then we all laughed thinking that where the hell are we going to find a ben-10 laptop and if in case there is how big it would cost my mom to buy that. – Kids nowadays are really hi-tech.

  1. Sabiyah came to me, asking some questions. while I, busy browsing the internet didn’t notice that she has already repeated her question a lot of times and still no answer from me.  My baby boy who was about a meter away from us heard his sister and with an angry face approached me and said, “Mommy, pakinggan mo naman si ate sabiyah, kawawa naman.”


Before we go to sleep they never to fail say “I love you always” to me and their dad.


My Sabiyah now goes to school; she is in kindergarten (Casa Jr. 2). One afternoon when she was about to leave the house my baby boy was busy watching Playhouse Disney (their fave channel) and didn’t notice that his sister just left. After a short while…

Baby boy: mommy, where’s ate sabiyah?
Me: she just left. Why?
Ignoring my question, he ran fast to see if sabiyah still outside the house.Luckily, she was at the gate still waiting for her ride.
Baby boy: *shouting* ate sabiyah, hindi ka naka-kiss.
Sabiyah:  ay, I forgot.
she kissed him on the cheek.
Baby boy: cge, ingat.

Then they both waved their hands.


The innumerable compliments I receive every time I wear something nice, cook something delicious,  etc.
kids: mommy, you look pretty. / wow! yummy naman.


and a lot lot more. Everyday is a wonderful experience with my kids. :)

Hide Flaws Hide

hey! :) sorry I've been so lazy lately. I just don't feel like taking pictures for my blog, nor typing to share what I have in mind. Maybe because of the rainy season informing that summer has been officially over for more than a week now, which is kinda sad. I created this post just to feel less guilty for not making a new blog entry. Really, I don't have any idea right now on what to say. So, I decided to browse my pictures on my laptop to help me decide on what to post, then I saw a photo of my make-up palette that I ordered online. Forgot that I took a picture of it, I have it for a month now, so I guess it wouldn't hurt if I share it with you guys. Better late than never.

I received the package the next day after I ordered it. cool, isn't it?

as you can see, the packaging was safely secured.

sorry, I have to copy the photo from their website since I want to  emphasize the real colors of it and I  just can't because I have a poor camera. :( planning to buy a new one, though. yay! :)

It is actually a corrector/concealer/contour palette, yes, all in one. I became addicted to concealers since I had my on and off allergies/rashes, two or three years ago, if I'm not mistaken.  I usually have it on my face, especially under my eye. How awful and tragic, like on my FACE!  Anyway, this palette is actually good it hides my flaws instantly when it comes to concealing and correcting, but what I don't like about it is that it fades away quickly.  So disappointing, I expected them to stay long like what it should be. Really,  how am I supposed to retouch?  Do you expect me to bring the whole huge palette with me?  lol! What is interesting about this is the contour pan on the bottom right as you can see on this palette. It surprisingly, works! I thought it's way too dark for me but it blends really well like magic.

I am also thankful to the seller, she's so kind and accomodating. It's my second time to order a make-up from her, the first one is an eye shadow and blush palette. similar to coastal scent, I guess.

Guys, any suggestion about a really good concealer? and please help me find a nice product that will effectively lessen my dark under eye circles and wrinkles. I know it's too early for me to have wrinkles but believe me I already have it. :( I got it from scratching and rubbing my eyes and eye area too much that my thin skin under my eyes got stretched and caused me to have premature wrinkles. by the way, The skin around our eyes is some of the thinnest skin on our body. So if you can, never ever rub your eyes. I swear you'll regret it.   

Right now my favorite concealer is the body shop's concealer pencil and I won't be without it. :)

Have you heard of the Naturactor concealer? I want to try it. Read some good reviews about it.

puhleeeease, leave some suggestions especially about my under eye problem. Thanks in advance. :)

I just want to share another side of me. It is my love for cute things even the word "cute" is cute for me. hahaha. It's in my system, When I was a kid I used to collect stationeries, stickers, and erasers. I always end up to the point of buying something just because it's cute or pretty even though I don't need it.  I know most us have the same way of behaving when it comes to buying the things we don't need.  It's like a good example of what our life is:  a constant battle between what we want and what is right.  I was told before that in order to control yourself from buying too much, you should ask yourself first if you need it or if you're going to use it.(sounds pretty much the same, i know.)  Well, sometimes it works but I still believe that it is not a waste of money, because the happy feeling I always get from buying those things is so worth it.  As long as you know how much budget you got and always stick to that limit.

Sorry, I have been blabbing too much, I hope that it even makes sense. Anyway, all I want to post are the "cute" things that I bought on my last trip to HK and Macau, which I have previously mentioned on this blog site. So here, I am going to post the 5 cute things that fitted my budget (of course):

Loafers are back

Hi! My newest addiction when it comes to footwear is.... Loafers! :)

Did you know that loafers were first seen during 1930's? well, It is really a classic footwear and I'm glad that they're back. :)

sorry for the poor quality of the photo

Recently I bought a new one at Cole Vintage, The Ramp, Trinoma. They sell super cute loafers, that I had a hard time choosing which one to buy.

here's mine:

Here are the DO's and DONT's about loafers according to OK Philippines magazine(my fave mag) issued this June 2011:

DO pair it with cropped pants, skinny jeans, and mini-skirts.
DON'T wear it with below-the-knee skirts to avoid looking dowdy.
DO invest in high quality leather so your pair can last for years.
DON'T wear it with ankle socks. Go for opaque tights if you must.

here's me wearing my first loafers that I bought while I was in Hong Kong:

How about you, Is there something(footwear in particular) you are interested about lately? :)
would love to know.
