UK Celebrates Mother’s Day 23

UK celebrated the Mother's Day yesterday which was different from the month we usually celebrate in the Philippines. Back home, we follow the American dates, celebrating Mother's Day on the second Sunday of May. Whatever month it is celebrated, it still aims the same thing and that's to appreciate the hard work with love given to us by all the mothers in the world.😍 How did you celebrate your special day Pretty Mommas? For me, I had a blast. I asked Mon if he would be more than glad to let me choose the place to spend it. Without much... Read More

Life Update First Q 2023

The first quarter of 2023 is almost finished. How fast the days went! I've also had reached my fourth year of stay in this country. Yay! Happy fourth to us as an immigrant. Is it a big deal surviving this long to stay in a country with completely different culture from us? Of course, it ain't easy adapting to everything new. Coming here with only a suitcase full of clothes leaving everything we've started back home because we wanted change to happen to our professional growth is something I will always be thankful I decided to take the risk. It... Read More

World Book Day 2023

An amazing power that writing can do is the capability of evoking different emotions to each readers. An article or a book can make us feel happy, inspired, laugh with the words used by the writers encouraging unique interpretations from the book loyalist. On the other hand, written words can also trigger the opposite of positive interpretations. Quite an amazing trick writers could do to play with humans' emotions, isn't it?😂 When I post a blog, do I consider if somebody might take it negatively and presume that I might be pointing the post towards them? The answer is I... Read More

Moonlight Piece First Place Piano Competition

We are all still feeling very elated after Akyn's performance last Saturday when he joined a piano competition in Cottingham. Mon and I are so proud of our baby's effort to overcome his fear of performing in front of a huge crowd. Almost everyone has that fear even me as a grown up I would be petrified to be on the spot. How much more for a seven year old boy! The night before Akyn's performance, he expressed how scared he would be for the next day and we, as the parents could at least offer our words of encouragement... Read More

In Liverpool Day 2

As planned, here's the second part of our trip to Liverpool. Traveling doesn't only mean ticking the box of accomplished places we've visited but it's our own way of gaining our energy back from the stressful adulting life. So thankful to my friends' suggestions as to where to visit next here in the UK. Everyday is an opportunity to discover more about this county. I'm always excited to visit new places with my family especially if I know shopping is very much recommended to the nearby big shops of the area. LOL😁 I'll start my blog with my travel OOTD....

Newest Obsession, My Happy Bubble

A calm Wednesday morning for me to start writing for my blog again. Hello pretty Mommas. Hope everyone is slaying their day like how a gorgeous momma should do. 😘 We were playing a card game this morning during breakfast by giving each other a card of prayer suited to whoever will get it. I gave Mon the card of work prayer as he is going to work from home today. For Akyn, he got the prayer of Wisdom before going to school and for me, Mon gave me the prayer for Forgiveness. I asked him, "To forgive who?" Then... Read More

London Second Day

As much as I wanted to wait for next week to finish another blog but I can't resist the eagerness to share it to my website about how nice our vacation went to the busy, always in a rush London life. Our day usually start with a sumptuous breakfast enough to fuel us for another nonstop walking day. Yes, we really need to get a good meal for the day plus the comfiest pair of shoes if we wanted to survive a fun-filled tour. We went to the nearest Italian resturant near our hotel before going on to ride a... Read More

Date with Akyn

I've added another school photo of Akyn in my photo wall gallery upstairs. When you enter our house and look up our stairs, these are the lovely photos that will welcome you to our little abode. Nothing grand gallery but so much welcoming with our Akyn's smile. He's growing more cheerful everyday and believe it or not, this boy doesn't even know how to elicit a frowning face totally opposite to his mum.🤣(LOL) He tried several attempts to frown but failed. I'm starting to believe now those superstitious beliefs that when a mum has a happy pregnancy experience, eventually the... Read More

Our New Passer-UK Driving Test

It's always a happy time for me when I have this moment to sit and update my blog. Blogging is a hobby I can't seem to live without. This blog is my outlet to my overwhelming emotions just like today when I can't hold my enormous joy of how happy our family is after Mon officially passed his UK practical driving exam last Monday. Another answered prayer pretty Mommas. Yay! Before I'll start writing his journey let me say hi to all the pretty Mommas out there and virtual hugs to greet everyone belated happy Mothers' Day as UK celebrated... Read More

Immigrant

Happy Monday! Happy blogging to all pretty Mommas enjoying their quiet time whilst finishing their hot drinks during this cold morning. I'm feeling way better now compared to last week's ordeal. I'm finally back to the normal me who loves to express my chatty side through my writing. Today's blog is all about me sharing my experience here in the UK as an immigrant for three years now. Yikes! Three years was just like one snap of my finger, time was so fast.😂 Here's me enjoying my three year anniversary as an immigrant. I got employed as a registered nurse... Read More

In Everything We Appreciate

After saying the grace before meals this breakfast we've brought the topic in our dining table about appreciating more what we have just like the sumptuous meal in front of us. Some may have skipped their meals because they have nothing. Others maybe suffering from cold and darkness whilst us warmly sitting in our comfy couch. You know simple things like that are often overlooked. I would admit that sometimes I forget to recognize the full worth of something not until the moment it's gone. We used to do everyday online call with my family back home but because of... Read More

Hi 2022

Happy New Year to everyone. I hope you are all enjoying with the fresh start for this year. I usually begin my blog every new calendar flip with looking back how my 2021 went to wrap up all my learnings for the previous year rather than right away setting up my present goals. How do you kick off your first day out of 365 days? Well, everybody has their own ways of doing it. What matters most is how we face the whole spin of our 2022. Do you agree with it pretty Mommas. Let's start by looking pretty. (LOL)🤣... Read More

Be Bright

It's Monday which means a blogging day for this Momma on rest day with four degrees freezing weather outside. Going out still? No, thank you! I'd rather stay at home and enjoy my writing day. 😂 Little things like this of having the freedom to do what I like versus doing what I am needing to finish is one of the best moment for a busy bee mum. It's like a precious jewel we always want to savor every bit of it, don't you agree? Today, whilst scrolling down my Facebook memory lane, I've read an online post about getting... Read More

Halloween and Pumpkin Picking

I've read from one of my favorite mommy blogger, Mommy Fleur, about her mother and daughter five questions session where she did get the raw sweet answers from her daughter about the things she like. I tried few of the questions with my five year old boy but not the whole lot as he gets bored with too many questions thrown at him in one instance. I don't want to hear his favorite tag line,"Why are you asking me loads of questions Mommie?" Here are some of his answers: What are the five things you love about Mommie? I love... Read More

Coffee Nook and Everything Nice

Having my me time for a couple of hours while my Akyn is in school is absolutely relaxing. It allows me to do my hobby just like blogging without feeling guilty of not looking after my boy because of getting too preocuppied of thinking what to write. Mon is also at work in York which would mean I have my alone moment."Go pretty Momma enjoy doing your morning skin care without rushing for my Mommy duties!"
