H&M's All For Children Autumn Collection

H&M Kids

        It's autumn!!!! 

........For some parts of the world anyway... Since the Philippines is a tropical country we never get the chance to play dress up with gorgeous trench coats, funky boots, and beautiful sweaters. So if you have the chance to spend an autumn vacation in a different country, you might as well want to really plan out your outfit! (I swear the next time we go to Japan I'm really wearing something more fashionable hahaha!) And of course when you're taking your little ones with you, that's extra fun dressing them up too!

        One of the best places to start is H&M's All for Children Collection. Not only will you get really snazzy autumn  wear for your kids, but you'd be doing it for a good cause as well!

I Decorated My Own Goldilocks Christmas Cake!

decorate your cake

        Cakes signify celebration. Whether it's a big party celebrating a big holiday, or a small intimate celebration of someone finally accomplishing something, or celebrating an anniversary, or even monthsary. A cake will always be something a person can give that will truly be appreciated. 

        But imagine if you can decorate the cake yourself? Adding your personal touch, expressing yourself by making your own decoration... That will surely mean the world to the person receiving it.

        And so when I received this cool Decorate-Your-Cake kit for Goldilocks' Decorate Your Christmas activity, I was giddy! Not only because I get to create a Christmas cake for my family, but because I've secretly been itching to try decorating my own cake every time I would see Goldilock's Decorate Your Cake billboard along EDSA haha!

So here we go! My Christmas cake!

Etude House Stay Up Foundation

stay up foundation

Please humor me guys! This is my first ever make up post! Hahaha! :-)

        I've never been the one to put a lot of make up. That's because I don't really know how. So I always opt for simple make up that will simply cover up all the haggardness in and out. (And then some lipstick so I won't look like the walking dead.)

And when I saw this Stay Up Foundation from Etude House, I thought to myself "This is is more my style!"

iTunes is screaming (RED) !!!

        I was doing my usual business of browsing the App Store once in a while when I noticed all the icons of most of the apps are in color red. Reminded every of my math grades back in elementary and high school. But all kidding aside, these red icon apps have a great reason behind it...

        Apple and (RED) have been collaborating together for years to help fight AIDS in Africa. And this year, they've extended this collaboration by including apps from iTunes. 

        It started last November 7 until December, every time you purchase any (RED) product apps in iTunes, 100% of the proceeds will go to Global Fund to help aid the fight for AIDS. 

Find out more details and how else you can donate here:

One app can be a big help! Buy (RED), save lives!

Disney Fairies: The Legend of the Neverbeast Official Trailer

It's hard not to get fond of these funny adorable Disney fairies!
 Photo credit
        I didn't really like Tinkerbell before. Especially in Peter Pan. She's this jealous mischievous little fairy who would do anything to bring Wendy down just because she's jealous of all the attention that Peter Pan is giving Wendy. So when I saw that Disney created a computer animation centered on Tinkerbell, I didn't think I would like it. Then came our little bundle of joy, our little Rainbow.

        Richie likes getting videos for our little Rainbow to watch. Especially now that Rain is at a stage where she understands what she watches, and likes copying what they do (That's why we always let her watch shows only appropriate for  her age. Like Disney Junior & Sesame Street) And one time, Richie made her watch a Tinkerbell movie. After that. we were hooked. Yes. "we". Including me!

        This features Tinkerbell and shows how she became a fairy, and all her adventures in Pixie Hollow before she met Peter Pan. I loved it!!! And so did Rain! That being said, we completed the whole list!

Disney's Cinderella (Official US Trailer)

Glass slippers

No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing...

The dream that you wish will come true.

I love how this line of the song really promotes law of attraction, which I am a firm believer in.

But anyway, the Disney animation that has been popular ever since I can remember, and still ever so popular until today's generation (and probably forever), has worked its way back to the big screen! We've been seeing the glass slipper teaser poster and now the official US trailer is here! :-)

Imaginations Running Free at Global Art Philippines!


        As a child, I have to admit I wasn't the model student. I wasn't rebel or anything but I never made it to any top positions.I hated math. I hated memorizing dates in history. And that was okay for me. But one thing I did know is that I loved art. Anything that required creativity, I was interested in. And I'd like to think I was pretty good at it. Not expert good but pretty good.  And it's something that I hope little Rainbow will take an interest as well while growing up.

        Right now, Rain can only do scribbles. Hardly any shapes being formed yet when he scribbles on a paper. But with a little practice, I'm sure she will get the hang of it. And a fun art class like Global Art will really help as well! Global Art is this amazing world-class art enrichment program for children starting toddlers, all the way to teenagers.

        I went there a few days ago to check it out and you won't believe what these young children can do with art materials!
