Sewing DIY Projects

I can attest now that the kind of weather affects someone's mood. I thought before one's disposition depends ONLY with how our brain cells choose to view things everyday but no. If the weather is miserable out there, I tend to become more tired. All I want is to stay indoors and hone the introvert side of me. Duvet covers on, book in one side of the hand and the other hand is free to grab my cup of coffeee. Cozy but it makes me a little sad not able to see Mr. Sunshine. I grew up in a tropical...

Kitchen Renovation Deca Home

As early as nine in the morning, I received a phone call from a local number. I thought it was a genuinely important call since the area code showing didn't seem like a telemarketing calls with sales agent offering all sorts of products I'm not really interested. When I answered the phone, an automated message recording greeted me threatening me about tax evasion case filed againts me by the Home office. I've heard loads of cases of people falling to this kind of trick. Please be informed that Home office will never call to inform us of any tax discrepancy... Read More

Happy A Year Anniversary UK Home

This photo below is a year old as of today. We took this shot exactly the date when we moved in, the twenty third of July, our blissful summer. In the middle of packing and moving stuff from our rented place to our permanent home, we took this moment to smile, appreciate the biggest gift bestowed upon us and pose for a memorable picture to treasure forever. Who would have thought this blessing would come early? As a new immigrant from this country, we felt everything was moving so fast in its most beautiful way. I've got my family to... Read More

Bathroom Reveal

I feel sorry to those who are currently at work today in the UK with this kind of weather, too hot, uniform too constrictive and uncomfy to wear, office buildings absorbing too much heat, what else can I say? Tomorrow is also expected to be warmer than today. I'm used to high temperatures back home so I'm a little bit fine with it but for those who aren't, it's quite unbearable. This too shall pass pretty Mommas. Stay hydrated! As promised during my previous posts that I will be sharing our toilet renovation we did in our house in Cebu.... Read More

Little Office DIY Project

The coolest thing for today is apart from I am at home doing my Me Time, I have already finished all my household chores awaiting completion yesterday. This would mean I am free to do my hobby to blog or perhaps I can read a couple of pages of Nicholas Spark's entitled Dear John bought from one of my thrifting escapade I've been reading for a couple of weeks now or maybe, I can do a solo karaoke at home singing like nobody can hear. LOL😂 Nah, I'll start with my blog today and we'll see what will I want... Read More

Aesthetically Pleasing

Whilst browsing through my photos, it always catches my eyes to admire the kind of home we created together. Nothing extravagant, just cozy and the pure feeling of I'm at HOME, my comfort zone. It excites me to go home after a stressful day where I can finally be with my family to spend time with them. It's a routine after work to head straight to shower, eat together followed by the best moment of having to stretch my legs with the comfiest home clothes and a new book to read on one hand while cuddling my baby boy with...

Ikea UK

I am supposed to write the consecutive parts of our London trip but decided to write our Ikea in Leeds adventure instead as a part of me again is so much excited to share my weakness to shopping home decors. Who wouldn't be when Ikea has so many beatiful choices out for display? Overwhelming shopping experience for this Momma. Me and my boys taking a selfie before the journey begins. It was a lovely Sunday morning when we went there. After attending the Holy mass, the Reginos invited us if we wanted to go to Leeds. Our initial plan was... Read More

Always Not Boring

Another Monday madness for the most working class but for me, it's a Monday bliss as usual. Sorry for rubbing it in pretty Mommas because I just can't contain my happiness to look forward for this day, my rest day!🤣I've heard some notions about working overseas life, before I decided to work abroad, that life will turn out to be boring filled with all work concept, no fun, all stress, missery and only monetary gains. But then I've proven it all wrong as the quality of our lives whether we are in our homeland or somewhere miles away from home,... Read More

Easter Bonnet DIY and Shopping Haul

For the very first time Mon started using our Captain America, the name Akyn gave to our blue car to York to get the feeling on how it is to drive in the motorway as he is normally scared to drive in such fast lane. Thanks God he safely managed to do it. His officemates are encouraging him more to face his fears in using the motorway for him to overcome it as days go by. It's also cheaper to drive in going to work compared to paying for a train ticket. Because he didn't need to wait anymore for... Read More

Our Christmassy Home

We know when it's almost Christmas because it's getting colder and colder everyday. It's like a snuggle time of the year under our thick blanket in front of the delightful fireplace. Who wouldn't want to stay at home at the perfect comfort of our home? 😂 My home buddy. Anyway, how's your Christmas decoration at home going? Are you almost finished with everything? I guess mine would be quite alright now. Although, I'm still adding some bits and bobs everytime I see something cute when we go shopping. Nothing really much I planned to change anymore with how things are... 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

Entry Way

I was so focused finishing my work related task in my last week shift when somebody randomly asked me,"Are you like this at home Michelle?" "Always in a rush and wants everything done, organized the way you wanted?" Quite surprised with the question which made me think as well if the way I behaved at work is exactly the same at home. Then I replied,"No because I am at home and I am more relaxed because it's my home!"I thought the conversation was done after my response but another follow up question was,"Are you married?" I gave a short response,"Yes!"... Read More

New House Decorations

After finishing my painting projects for our new home, I'm finally sitting down now ready to update my Akynfullhouse with the latest house improvement I've done so far within a few weeks of stay here. Not even a month had passed but our house looked so much better every day. I'm so in love with our little lair not because it's a new place for the three of us but mainly due to the fact that it's OURS already. I can't still get over it pretty Mommas. ♥️ Anyway, first thing I bought was the rug for our living room.... Read More

Thrift Flip Home Decors

It's a sunny Saturday and I'm on a rest day. How nice is that? Once in a blue moon when I'm off on a weekend. Yay, celebrating those little moments of happiness pretty Mommas of enjoying life away from the hospital stress work-related. LOL. This is me taking a selfie while doing thrift shopping for home decorations. Yesterday was the last day of school before the spring break of my boy. They did a photoshoot taking with his Dad just before heading to school. I can really tell now Akyn is a 100% the same photo addict like me who... Read More

Another Thrifted Upcycle Journey

Went home from my overtime shift and was right away greeted with my Akyn with these sweet flowers for Mother's Day. All my tired muscles regained my lost energy because of my little charming boy who never failed to make me feel liked I'm the best mum in the world. Thank you Palangga.😘 We got two Mother's day celebration because both the Philippines and the UK got two different dates in celebrating my special day as a MUM. It's a nice treat for me from my boys then. Who wouldn't love to get some appreciation from all our hardwork pretty... Read More

Thrifted Home Decors Upcycled

My left arm still feel sore after I had my second dose of my Covid Vaccine. It's the only discomfort I felt after having the jab. Although I'm experiencing a little discomfort with my arm, I would still want this post to get done to share to my Akynfullhouse avid readers. Hope you're all doing fine as well during this sunny Spring. Thank God Winter is finally over. We can enjoy the sunny weather whilst having fun outdoor.😂 This is me before having my vaccination yesterday. Solo bus rider. What's our lovely post for today? It's one of my favorite... Read More
