Just want to share this post to all gals who always had fun reading magazine, seeing a handbag or collecting one. Whatever brand you are into, I am happy for you. Same thing that I am happy whenever my friend and I able to purchased one. After receiving a coach handbag and make up purse as a gift, I am planning to purchase one again in the near future. As of this moment I am happy to flip pages of magazine and browse sites to complete my decision which is which.
Camilla Belle, in Maggie large Leather and Jessica Stroup, with Julianne Large Tote.
Hope you could help me decide...till my next post.
It's very fulfilling to see your children grow in a manner that is best for them - to be a good person with values at heart. It's very hard at first as a hands on mom, to do all the chores and taking care of your children, same thing as doing run errands at home. But I can tell you that I am very much satisfied with the way motherhood embraces me
I am more attach to my kids now rather than when I am still working. Knowing them with just one look on their face if they are happy or sad,what they want and need completes me as a mom. I try to have a quality time in each one of them by having lunch or snack together, a spa, movie treat or just seat together while sipping coffee or hot chocolate. I think listening and talking to them is a nice way to know them personally and to have a good and harmonious relationship. I took time to be with them individually so that I will know their interest, happiness and what are the things that upset them. After all they are not the same individual, I cannot apply what is best for one will be fit for all.
As my previous experienced, I can't accept the fact that somebody will know my children more than the way I knew them personally. When I am still working, it comes to a point that my son want to have more time to our house helper rather than to be with me. I do not want to happened that again, it really breaks my heart on that scenario. As a mom, I know that mothers out there if given a chance wanted to be at their children side all the time. Most especially in their toddler years, to nurture and protect them. To witness the very first thing that will happen,. a once in a lifetime moment that you can not turn back. However under circumstances not all mothers experienced this and I respect the reason why they can not.
On these case I want to thank God that He able to blessed me to be at my children side all the time. To let me see their achievements and fall and to let them feel that I am always here to path their back when they need support, and to love them unconditionally. Secondly to my husband, to his loving support and unconditonal love to his children and family and for always supporting me in raising my kids.. I can not do this alone - and I commend him for that.
This is my story, my life as a Mom- one tough job but worth it. :)

I think anyone wants to pamper themselves after a toxic, stressful and hard days work. There are times that we can not go to the spa, derma or salon, for whatever type of reason. Here are some tips to share that I hope could help maintain your natural looks that is easy on the budget.
For face; try to buy some microdermabrasion cream that you could used as an at home facial spa. You could use the product once to twice a week to exfoliate dead skin cells and brighten with a new one. Just read the labels for more instruction. I know this cost one to two thousand pesos. For some , it's cost much , but it's worth it for your face to look luminous and radiant without wearing make up. After all, it's your natural beauty to enhance and prevention is much easier than treatment.
For the body; as an exfoliant, try 3-4 tablespoon of sugar and half teaspoon of olive oil and mix together and olaaah! you could use it as a sugar scrub! Just spread to your body in a circular motion concentrate on the thigh, elbow and knee area, ( you can also used this as a footscrub, to spare you from going to the salon - for footspa. ) or whatever rough patches on your body that's easier to get dry. For ultimate result to lock in moisture lost when you exfoliate, try to have a milk spa/ bath by using evaporated milk ( try to use full cream type ) place in a container, half part of the can and squeeze some calamansi or lemon extract, to lighten your skin. Spread this to the entire body and leave for 15 minutes, then rinse your body thoroughly. Using of intensive body cream like; body butter or body souffle is a must after showering to maintain it's moisture! However, if you do not have enough budget, regular lotion would do. I recommend to use this once a week - For at home spa ambiance, try to put some scented oil or candles at your bathroom for serene mind and body relaxation.
I hope this post could help you to look and feel good about yourself.

As far as we take good care of our skin in the face and body by putting high to low end creams to turn back the clock, one should also consider to take extra good care for their hands and feet as it really does show the sign of aging.
After shifting to a full time housewife seven years back, I find myself putting gloves in my hands doing the household chores. ( like the one you see in the korean telenovela.) Let's face it, mostly for hands- on- moms who work 24/7 in the house are proned to have dry hands. In this case back then I find myself looking for the right remedy to end up my dilemna. After all, nobody wants to have dry , flaky and wrinkled hands.
So now, I want to share with you the holy grail of my hands that keeps it's moisture from day to day battle in doing my chores. For ultimate results that keeps moisture for hours with shea oil and buttery texture but non greasy try; Lush helping hands php 595, bonus part that it's made from natural ingredient and really soothing..you can see results after the first application. For budget concious mode with same result try Mark and spencer royal Jelly & pure honey hand & nail cream by having royal jelly and honey for moisturizing and vitamin E to leave your skin soft and smooth.Also recommended for it's heavenly scent php250 and lastly, Beauty bars Lait de Che'vre hand and foot lotion with fresh goats milk as main moisturizing property ingredient 295. As an addition, for ultimate dry hands and feet, try to have a foot or hand paraffin once in a while at your favorite salon.
As we all know, Moms have the benefit to look and feel good inside and out, and having a tough 24/7 dedication of service to our love one should not be the reason to deprive ourselves by looking glamorous in our own simple way once in a while. :)
Until now it's very endearing to recall from my memory how excited am I when my husband told me that He will give me a bag as a mothers day present..It's not the very first that he had done this thing, but It's very memorable since, I got what I wanted-and elevated- from the second category of label bag! (wink)
Aside from the kind of gift and brand, I am touch as a wife, that my husband value my existence as a wife, friend and a mother.
I know it's July now and mothers day was celebrated two months ago..but I wanted to share this feeling to those whose bloodline is the same as mine-bagaholics!
