Trying New DIY at Home

Cold morning pretty Mommas.❤️ Second day off for the week allocating to update my blog page. I haven't done so much travel or shopping lately as you can probably see in my recent blog posts apart from the last Ikea trip we had because I'm saving money to process my UK residency. I can't believe it would this expensive just to be continually staying legally in this country. It's way too much to be honest for us immigrants to be charged with the current visa processing. We do pay taxes religiously,never had the right to avail public funds at all,... Read More

Ikea Trip January

Gracing the year with the thought of making our house aesthetically pleasing and trying to be organized by finding some helpful gems in Ikea, Leeds. After we checked out from our Clumber Park holiday, we drove straight to Ikea prior to heading home. The weather was so miserable that day with heavy rains and awfully cold. Thank you Lord for the safe trip we had until we arrived home safely in Hull. This little man spent the whole journey sleeping comfortable. He was still asleep when we were already in our regular parking spot in Hull. That showed how comfy/tired... Read More

Start of my Christmas Decoration

The colder it gets during my off, the lazier I become. 🤣Can you relate to this sentiment working class pretty Mommas? I had to push myself this morning to get out of bed because it's my schedule to go with Akyn to school. It's a typical life of an overseas worker. We got to do things on our own be it household chores, childcare whilst being part of the working adults. I am not complaining at all! I love it to be honest. It keeps me active and gives me something to look forward to but then times get tough... Read More

9th Wedding Anniversary

June has been a kind month to us filled with all the joyful events to be grateful in life. Well, everyday should be a day I needed to remind myself to be thankful I am still breathing doing the things I love, isn't it? That's the spirit grateful Momma!❤️ Although I know that life ain't always sunshine and rainbows to be honest. Gloomy days are unfortunately part of the equation in this lifetime. I acknowledge my feelings when I'm down. However, I make it to the point to shoo those cloudy days and let thy sunshine warm my human body.... Read More

Doors

Sunny morning Pretty Mommas. I can start my blog with completely a different topic but I chose the weather. Why? Because part of the adulting life is starting a small talk discussing about the weather most commonly, the safest way to connect and engage in a conversation. Don't you agree? I myself who isn't that good with my social skills would personally choose to talk about the climate situation first just to break the awkward silence. LOL🤣 Too many things to learn and adapt with all these adult life task. From socializing, continuous responsibilities to get done and the list... Read More

Season Change

It was a bank holiday yesterday which means a day off for the three of us. An alternating sunny and cloudy day that made me push through with my promise to Akyn to bring him to a nearby park. Mon's doing his long run practice,too. A win-win activity for everyone. I love to go out during spring time with all the flowers blooming nicely. Everywhere seemed to be IG worthy for a shot, don't you agree? I'm also excited for a lighter and more colorful clothes to be on trend whilst thick coats back hidden in my wardrobe. Here's this...

UK Major Bathroom Renovation

I'm so thrilled to share how my new bathroom looks like after the renovation. I have just finished cleaning the house, yet here I am already sitting trying to put all my words together to come up with a blog post about our newest renovated part of our home. It's our first time having to go with one big renovation in our UK house. With the fact that we don't know anyone else in this country as to whom we can trust regarding the changes we wanted to achieve in our home, having it done successfully with my chosen bathroom...

This Brand New Year

Happy New Year everyone. A long overdue post for this brand new calendar again. Haven't sat down and contemplated for a new post because this Momma was busy savoring my tranquility doing nothing at home during off. Sometimes slowing down a bit, chilling out with a warm drink and not worrying of finishing any task to do is a much needed rest for us Mommas on the go, don't you think? This is our 2023 family photo and is of course already printed to be added to my photo album. Old school as this say in storing memorable pictures but... Read More

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
