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

Welcoming My Mid-Thirties Life

I was kind of looking forward to celebrate my birthday few weeks ago because I will have my shopping time in my chosen shopping area without worrying of using my own card to pay for it. Mon is going to pay for me as a treat. (LOL) Is it always about treating myself thoughts? 😂😂Nooooooo! I'm excited to welcome another year in my human existence to explore what more the earth can offer or what more I can give to the world. I don't have any special skills to be boastful about but maybe, just maybe, there might be something... 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

Dunkin in Hull

Few weeks ago after I had my night shift, we decided to treat ourselves with sweetness. Dunkin is a brand of doughnut I grew up with. Knowing they had a branch here in Kingswood, Hull made me so happy and extremely excited to try. Sleepless night won't stop me from enjoying my rest day. So, come on and head to the nearest Dunkin branch. Because it is fall season, it is the time for Pumpkin Spice Latte. It's my first time trying the drink and I like it. Some of my friends doesn't like the taste that much. You'll either... Read More

Pumpkin Picking 2023

Yearly pumpkin activity is always filled with fun. We as a family usually go on a trip with only the three of us but this pumpkin picking activity is one of the rare moments we go out with friends together. Are we that too obvious as an introvert? (LOL) My baby boy is growing just like his parents who also enjoys solitude. I asked my little boy if he wanted to buy a big pumpkin to carve for the coming Halloween and guess what he said! "I don't want to carve pumpkins for this year because food aren't supposed to... Read More

Mon’s Birthday and Everything Nice

It took me a while to write something new because I've been a so much of a worrier lately regarding some concerns about our owned properties at home that needs sorting out. It's a long overdue process that I should have dealt with before but I chose to procrastinate because I already contemplated the hassle both financially and most of all emotionally draining fighting to get what is ought to be MINE. I attended the Holy mass last Sunday to get more strength to overcome our family challenge at this moment, especially my Mama trying to display a brave face... Read More

Brand New Floors

Hey pretties. I'm here again blogging something exciting. It's my rest day. Thank God for the day off freedom from stress.🤣 I've done all my house chores so rather than waiting for next week for my usual blog posting schedule, why not do it now whilst I got a bit of free time to release all my thoughts into writing. The most exciting part of being an independent working adult(LOL) is the freedom to decide what to do with your living space. Yeah,this addicted Momma to making everything aesthetically pleasing is on the move again for another house renovation project.... Read More

Father’s Day 2023 New Car Baby

He's Father's day gift came four days earlier! I don't think Mon would mind the timing of getting his present if he's receiving what he's been wishing for. Toys for big boys quote is the classic example of this blessing. Thanks dear Lord for granting us another family grace.🧡 When we started our journey here as an immigrant, we already aimed in one of our long term goals for Mon to pass their required exams to drive. It's one of the struggles of an immigrant because it is a must to conform to their laws, pass their tests and do... Read More

First Communion of Akyn

An important milestone in Akyn's Catholic life was realized last Saturday. It still felt surreal witnessing him during the whole ceremony. I am a proud mother for my boy, well most mum's do. We carry our child for nine months in our tummy, spent sleepless nights attending to our newborn and the list continues. With the bond moms had created to their child, it is just right for us, mothers to be the first loyal fan of our kids in every life achievements they'll have. Well done Akyn, so there! I couldn't keep my eyes away from him through out... Read More

Bank Holiday May 2023

Right now while composing this blog, my favourite little human is with me giving me company for this quite afternoon. It is a school break again for them. How lucky these kids are to get as many break time from their regular hustle while us adult, life must go on everyday to survive. (LOL)🤣🤣🤣 I had at least a day off last week to splurge myself. Got no specific plans simply roaming around the town centre trying few nice pieces of clothes then snap to confirm if I'll like the fit.😁 This Momma deserved it. The best find I got... Read More

Carpet and Wood Floor Change

I was browsing through my website prior to starting this blog post to do some minor changes to some entries and then I ended up reading again the old write up I did. It made me reminisce the exact event I have written and woken up the feelings I had on those events. Words are really powerful to bring back our memories, so use it well when you can.😍 For today's blog my main meat is all about our carpet update journey we did to our stairs and bedrooms. Overall experience was tiring especially the moving of furniture and cleaning... Read More

January Home Decor

Went to one of the shops with my boy after his class and one of the store clerk asked, "Are you Espanyol?" Responded with a brief answer, "I am not Spanish!". He continued, "Are you Nihao, then?" I am not certain if I should laugh with the question or get irritated with it because nihao isn't even a nationality at all. I took my change from what I bought, told him, "I AM A FILIPINO!'' I've been in this country for almost four years now and yet, I still feel Filipinos are part of the invisible group with little information... Read More

Early Christmas Surprise From Akyn

Christmas is in the air both literally and figuratively with the minus two degrees temperature and the trees covered with ice, oh yes it is definitely the holiday season. Akyn gave us an early Christmas gift yesterday with his amazing act of bravery to overcome his fears every time he needs to perform in front of the crowd. I still get petrified with public speaking if I'll be ask to do one. How much more for a six year old boy? He showed me this little house with sweets and said that he was so happy with himself for getting... Read More

My Birthday in Liverpool Day 1

I was contemplating on how would I celebrate my birthday few weeks ago and Mon said to me, "Celebrate it the way you wanted!" Well, that would mean another family travel is going to happen because my top likes on the list on special event is really to travel and shop with my family. I love to spend our alone time together in going to places we've never been to. It's not like we don't want our friend's company to join with us but it's more of a moment to remember as a family getaway. If you don't get what... Read More

Book Hoarder

Few weeks ago, we went to East Park Woodford Leisure Centre swimming pool to try it for the first time. I had no intentions of swimming at all because first, I got no swimming suit and second I don't know how to swim. Bummer! Thank you Ate Susan for letting me borrow a swimwear. I'm starting to browse online to get my own swimming attire to use every summer. I should have done this months ago.😂LOL That's us fresh from the pool. East Park is becoming a frequent destination for us to spend our weekends. Apart from it's a huge... Read More

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
