Mom 24/7 Planner: The Ultimate Mom Planner by Mommy Mundo

Since we’re talking about 2013 planners, might as well feature this one made especially for the moms: the Mom 24/7 Planner. This has got to be the most special because this one is for the moms, created by the moms. Para sa mga mother, nanay, inay, made, mommy, mama, momma, at mudra like me.

I have the 2012 Mom 24/7 Planner which I got only around July. I was curious so I bought one when I applied for the Mommy Mundo Passport (an exclusive card for the moms).

As with the other 2013 planners I’m getting for next year, I’m getting this Ultimate Mom Planner at the Mommy Mundo Bazaar at Rockwell this weekend, November 24 and 25. Another planner? Yep. I’m doing a research. Seriously. And since I’m a Mommy Mundo Passport Holder, I’m getting this one for FREE! Yehey!

Modern Vintage Pillows

I went to ARQ Curtains’ Bodega Sale earlier this afternoon and I went crazy shopping for curtains and pillowcases! I finally completed the Modern Vintage Collection. I bought several pairs of curtains under the CORTINA Line and new throw pillow cases. Why, their P500 pillowcases were down to P100! I’m not kidding! The curtains they usually sell for P1,000 per panel are down to P400….lowest was P150. I think only a few will understand this craziness. Pillows and curtains? Aanhanin ko yun. If you’re a true-blue homemaker, you’d understand. Thank God I have a husband who understands why I love such stuff and appreciates our home. 🙂

I’ll post more photos soon of the Bodega Sale. You can still score great quality curtains at such affordable prices. PS: I got lots of freebies from the sale too. The Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe pillows I wanted to buy were given as gifts from the owner Sir Alex. Thank you, sir!!! I saw the Jackie O. on display and bought one.

Nuffnang Blogopolis ONLIne in the Philippines Blogging Event

Ever since I decided to go back to blogging, life has been more exciting. Walang halong biro but I feel so alive! Haha! 😛

I was recently talking to a former colleague, sharing with her how fun it is to blog again. A lot of us have been bitten by the bug too. You see, it was also a decision for me to DO MORE. I have work so I am online all the time. But majority of those hours were spent on Twitter, Facebook, blog-hopping, stalking, etc. I was  wasting my time. But since I started blogging again, I became  busy with more important things like reading, researching for topics, testing mobile apps, reviewing, helping other start ups, attending a conference, and meeting new people. I guess I missed meeting people IN PERSON after being stuck at home for more than five years now.

And so I want to go to this Nuffnang Blogging Event on Sunday, November 18. I haven’t decided yet because that weekend, I’d be very busy. It’s a ticketed event too so that means I’d have to spend again. But this could also be an investment. You meet new people and get new opportunities.

The Philippine blogosgphere has so much changed since I left the corporate world. It’s a bit scary because of all the bloggers out there who can write about a certain person or brand that could make or break an image. I find this one overwhelming too. How can I thrive in the Philippine blogging scene? Earning from this isn’t my objective. Why I’m blogging again? I’m blogging for LOVE and for GOD. I decided no more ranting or hate posts. I just want to share my thoughts. Who knows, I might be able to help or inspire other people.

I still have 4 days to decide. I know my husband won’t mind me going. It’s just that this weekend is full. Can I still squeeze this event? It’s a 9AM to 9PM event. Ang tagal! Pano ba to?! Sana may mag magandang loob at mag-sponsor. 😀

Home Decorative Pillows by ARQ Curtains

ARQ Curtains

When I use a brand that’s good, I try to stick to it as much as possible. I’ve recently discovered the local brand ARQ Curtains that sells decorative pillows and designer curtains in Manila. I mentioned how I discovered that its warehouse is just in Mandaluyong.

I’m into decorating and home interiors now. It’s the Martha in me. Oh how I wish we’d have our own place so we’d be able to renovate, install permanent fixtures, or finally invest in quality furniture pieces. I don’t know when but we don’t have any plans to buy a house or condo anytime soon. What we’re doing is pray for a miracle though. Hehehe.

I love the pillows by ARQ Curtains. So classy and yet so affordable. I’ve been seeing the brand name over at Zalora but when I added the company on Facebook, I became more interested. Whoever handling the Facebook page account was kind enough to reply to my queries. I’m excited to see the new collection and finally go to the warehouse for the bodega sale. I know I’ll be spending again but Christmas is near. I can’t pass up this opportunity to buy their stuff at lower prices.

Looking forward to these pillows:

Reminds me of the Tardis…
Ganda! I want all! Architectural Series in Black and White


Merry Christmas!

I saw these pillows when we went to SM MOA. I was inspired by Jenni Epperson. Gusto mo fresh look ang bahay mo? Ayan sige. I quote Jenni,  “change pillows every change of season or during special occasion.” Haha! Enough of the tiangge-bought P50 pillow covers. They won’t last talaga. Buy pillows from ARQ Curtains. Available in Home World and Our Home. 🙂

Christmas Bazaar for the Shopaholic Moms


Mommy Mundo Bazaar 2012: The Christmas Bazaar for Chic Shopping Mamas!

You can never strip mamas off their shopping duties. More often than not, shopaholic single women graduate to become shopaholic mamas. One perfect example is me! (Don’t ask how.) I haven’t done my Christmas shopping yet but I know I have to be more practical this year. Unlike many of the couples I know, my husband and I do not have 13th month pay and Christmas bonuses. I used to look forward to December because of such. My husband before even had up to 14th month pay. Oh how I’d love to receive an extra month pay! The only way we could receive such bonus is through some sort of miracle.

I need to be smart and practical because times are changing. Can one still be a shopaholic and save money? Yes, if you will choose what to buy and learn to be wise. You don’t need to splurge on Christmas gifts this year, you just have to be wise.

And so I suggest you go to bazaars such as the Mommy Mundo Christmas Bazaar because you will find great deals. I am a supporter of local products, especially by the mompreneurs (mom entrepreneurs), so I highly recommend this one.

I cringe on going to crowded malls during Christmas seasons but the Mommy Mundo Christmas Bazaar 2012 will be held at the Rockwell Tent so you know shopping will be more efficient and more comfy. (The AC inside the tent really works!)

I’m a regular goer of bazaars held at the Rockwell Tent because it’s near our place. I remember going to one Christmas bazaar there a few weeks after I gave birth. Obviously, I scored really great deals.

So who wants to go shopping with me, mommas?

“In all your ways acknowledge Him,
and He will make your paths straight.”

Suddenly, I’m interested in making crafts. I’m all for making new family traditions and that includes making crafts with Noah. Actually, I’m excited to decorate our very first Christmas tree. We’ve had trees the past years but this year, we decided to buy a bigger one. I’m still searching for an affordable but good quality Christmas tree. I already have a theme in mind but I don’t know how and when to start. Hopefully on the 3rd week of November, Noah’s new Kwisas Tri will be up.

Rom, let’s? 🙂


She sets about her work vigorously,
her arms are strong for her tasks.
