I can't remember...


To be perfectly honest, I can't remember the struggles of the first few months with you. I can't remember how sleepy I was trying to put you to bed. I can't remember the pain of breastfeeding you, trying to make you latch. I can't remember the painful engorgement that nearly led to mastitis. I can't remember crying because it was painful. I can't remember being scared to give you a bath because I might infect your cord. I can't remember my hands shaking because I was about to cut your nails. I can't remember how difficult late nights were. I can't remember missing to go out with friends (but I know I did along the way). I can't remember the frustration of changing your diaper nearly every hour! I can't remember even remember the back pains of both feeding and changing you. I can't remember being so nervous about every little thing that would happen to you.

I honestly don't know how your daddy and I survived everything with very little help. I can't remember feeling helpless, hopeless. I can't...

All I can remember was moment you perfectly latched to me. I remember doing a few happy dance whenever I see how normal your poop was. I remember getting all excited when I had to dress you up when we go to the doctor. I remember your sweet smile after feeding. I remember waking up in the morning and seeing you and your dad at the balcony enjoying the morning sun. I remember watching you sleep because you looked like an angel. I remember placing my hand on your chest to make sure you're breathing. I remember you clasping my hand whenever you eat. I remember you palying with your toes.

I remember crying because I wish your grandmother was alive so she can share that moment with me.

But for the life of me... I can't remember the trials, the struggles. I know we had them but I can't seem to recall them in perfect details. I'm not sure why, but probably it's God's gift to me so I can be a better mom to you.

In less than two weeks, you'll be turning one. You probably won't remember any of this but I hope that somehow, if you do, you'll also only remember the happy times with mommy and daddy.

We love you, princess.

SM Ladies' Night | 50% OFF SALE on SM Woman and GTW



I was already feeling feverish last Wednesday but that didn't stop me from going to the 1-day Only #SMLadiesNight event! It's SM Woman's 50% OFF on their house brands from 6PM to 9PM. The matter of fact is, I've been enjoying their SALE for weeks now since some of their items are already marked down to Php50%. But last Wednesday EVERYTHING was!!! So imagine me doing the happy dance when I learned about it!

I couldn't be more lucky because the brands on SALE are my current go-to brands! SM Woman, SM Woman Careers, SM Woman Basics and GTW by SM. I already find their prices reasonable and affordable to begin with so to have them at 50% off is like hitting the jackpot.

I didn't waste time because the good stuff were flying off the racks like craycray! Good thing I already know my size! Woot!

And to make it a little sweeter for all the shopper, spend a certain amount and you get some GC's back!

For every P1000, you get 100 SM Woman GC
For every P2500, you get 300 SM Woman GC
For every P5000, you get 700 SM Woman GC

By 9PM, I was carrying 3 full bags of clothes that costs about 12 to 13,000 but paid only half for it!! What a steal! :)

Don't feel bad that you missed this because they will have another one! So watch out for it at SM Megamall, SM North EDSA, SM Aura and SM Mall of Asia! Can't wait to go to the next one!





My #OOTD is SM Woman and SM Careers, of course!




This is not something to miss! So better stay tuned on SM Woman FB page for updates!

Time to #BareThoseNais




I really love gel manicures... but the sad sad truth is that it isn't doing my nails any good. The fact that I don't have to worry about it coming off is actually a problem, too. The moment I have to get it removed meant that I have to torture my nails because of the prolonged soaking on acetone and how it strips off the first layer of my nails. It's a bad cycle because it leaves my nails looking so disgusting, I want to get another gel manicure!

Find out how I kicked this bad habit and allowed my nails to breath and go bare!
