Starting the Week Right

Everybody thinks Monday is the most stressful day of the week.
Not for me, Monday is actually the most relaxing day of my week because the crazy busy schedule starts on a Tuesday!  

Traffic is crazier, the schedule of my son and my work schedule gets packed on a TUESDAY.  Well it starts on a Tuesday and goes crazier by the week.

So yes, I took the effort to write a blogpost about it because, Today is TUESDAY and I need a huge hug!

For style, I make sure I look made-up yet feels comfortable from head to toe!  Check out one of my favorite default look for a busy mom/working girl.

The top I got from a bazaar and I love outfit that looks really simple in front yet gives a lasting impression at the back (hopefully not pneumonia! hahaha)

Paired this top with a simple light blue jeans from Uniqlo.  I love Uniqlo I swear and this is my favorite jeans to date I've been wearing this on a weekly basis!

Looking for Moisture-Rich Lipstick?

So you have dry lips like I do?
Are you still looking for lipsticks that works like magic?   The ones that do not require you to apply a separate lip balm whenever you reapply your lip color?

Well, my answer is here!  I've talked about this lipstick more than a year ago and the shade I featured awas 01 Smart Red.

If you're not the type who would go for reds, well, I've got a pink one for you, a pink that I can actually wear!

Krispy Kreme Red Velvet Cheesecake and Matcha Doughnuts

Every after study time or activity time, Kyle would exclaim: "Reward please, snack please!".
I guess he got that in me, food as language of Love.  So in my household, I can feed a family of 3!  I have stocks of various snacks because - we may never know when the call arises!

I LOVE Krispy Kreme doughnuts, the Original Glazed is still the perfect doughnut for me no matter how many brands have been popping up everywhere!  So when I got these colorful Red and Green doughnuts for the year 2019, I let me calorie-counting slide and tasted them all!  With Kyle of course and Mr. AMW!

Matcha Doughnuts in Classic, Pistachio and Macadamia

I don't have a sweet tooth so I find the Red Velvet Cheesecake to be too sweet for my liking, but Kyle loved it a lot.  As for me, I may not be a fan of anything Matcha but this one surprised me the most!  With the right combination of sweet and bitter taste, I am actually craving for one right now as of typing!  I can't pick a favorite as I love all 3 variants!

Do You Love Flowers?

The practical girl in me would always say - "Give me food instead of flowers."
But as to most girls who exclaim that, it is difficult to admit that receiving flowers would give you that natural "high".

Look at that huge smile on my face when I received a bouquet of flowers for my birthday!  (Thanks Cathy Doll Philippines family!)

Then I realized gifting flowers is not about wasting money or not being practical.  Giving and receiving flowers is (in my opinion) symbolizes strong affection - could be love, friendship, appreciation or concern!  It embodies the feelings of the sender and the receiver can sense that.

Over the course of last year, I have sent so many flowers using online platforms, most of the time, it was a fail as I tend to do so in last minute thus the experience wasn't as good as expected.

This year, I want to be more organized and I'm jump-starting Valentines' Day preparation as early as today.

Found an online flower delivery service in the Philippines and Southeast Asia --- Flower Chimp Philippines .

Flower Chimp Philippines does same day delivery to anywhere in the Philippines FOR FREE (yay!).

Daily Casual Wear

If possible, I want to own a lot of rompers and jumpsuits in my wardrobe because it is the easiest to pick in the morning with the least decision-making skills!  I mean, seriously, no need to mix and match or even think about color-matching!

One of my favorite romper is this pair from Uniqlo, I've worn this several times changing accessories and shoes.  I love to pair this with my gray flats but recently, I bought a new pair of shoes from ShopTaryn (Marikina-made shoes) and I've been loving this combo so far!

P.S. Was so lucky as the pair was on sale!  From Php899.00 to Php540.00!  The quality is really good and no pain at all!

This black number has 1-inch heel which is perfect for busy moms on-the-go!  I love the pointy tip making it look casual yet chic at the same time!
