February: Put Your Best Kiss Forward

February is almost over , oh how time flies.  There's a lot of things to be thankful for this month being a heart-filled   times of the year.  To continue on with  our  monthly family picture taken at home, here are some shots we took  for this month.  These were taken  last weekend after we attended  the mass.
My  husband turned 48 this month and that's one special day we  have celebrated three days  after Valentine's day.  We made a special dinner for him, baked a  cake for him, and enjoyed family time after wards.  We also  visited my FIL on President's day to see how he has been for the past few weeks since our last visit.  
I am now on the  third week of  my #90DayChallenge of losing some unwanted fats.  So far I have lost  2 pounds since I started this month.  I have cut down my sugar intake and started walking on a treadmill again.  I started my long walk outdoors this morning since we will have a great week throughout the week so I am taking the opportunity to do my walking outdoors.  I walked for about an hour and half which felt great.  
Also sharing you this month's Beauty Box 5 is all about  lippie treatment in order to put your  best kiss forward.  There is a pink moisturizing lip mask, forever after unicorn lippie and unicorn liner, lip glow sheer  gloss balm, and  velvet color hybrid.
The forever after unicorn lippie  is debuted in this month's content.  It is ultra pigmented and it glides  so easily in your lips.  My daughter liked the So Susan colour hybrid  rich cream mouse  because you can use both for your lips and you can also apply a touch of it on your cheeks and it looks great for any skin tone.  My favorite this month is the  pink moisturizing lip mask.

Happiest Birthday to a Wonderful Man

When I first met this guy, I thought  there's no way we would be able to get along because we came from a very different background  and culture but I was wrong.  He is  the best match for me, we're like the perfect yin and yang of a married couple.  It's amazing to note how two individuals  can be so different and get along, I guess we are  the perfect example of  "Two Opposite Attracts".  I think LOVE, TRUST, and RESPECT are most valuable factors in a relationship.  We thrive on those things.  
Anyway, I would like to shout out a happiest birthday to wonderful  man, a very good  son to my father-in-law.  His parents really raised him well.
 He is also a  wonderful and great Dad to our two children.  Nothing makes me so happy to see  how he interacts with our kids.  
He is also a great friend if you get to know him well.  He doesn't warm up to people too easily but once you  get to know him, you will find out how easy it is to be friends with him.  I  love my husband's  sense of humor, he always makes me laugh and that's a  big thing for me since I am  sort of  a serious type most of the times but he always find a way to make me smile.  I can't ask for a better half, God blessed me with him.  
Happy birthday Hon and may God  always protect you and bless you with great health.

February: To Focus on my Fitness Goal

Can you believe it is  February already?  My goodness, where does  the time go?  Realizing that time  passes by so quickly and  I haven't really focus on  maintining my fitness goal is disappointing.  From 95 pounds (that's my normal weight), I am now 105 pounds.  My oh my, I gained ten pounds in just few months!  That's what happen when I slack on  following through with my commitment on  staying fit.  No one is to blame but me, I keep saying, I will work out tomorrow then tomorrow came and  it never happened,  so yeah.  I am  challenging myself to  losing what I gained in 90 days, I hope I could do it.  
I got a new weighing scale this year so I could track my  progress (or failure).  This Weighmaster bathroom scale from Ozeri  is great because it calculates your  BMI  or body mass index.  It provides a reliable indicator  of your fat classification.  It has a weight change detection technology  that  instantly displays your BMI (Body Mass Index), current weight, and your net weight change since your most recent weigh-in, last 3 and 7 weigh-ins.
It has an accurate weight tracking with 7 day memory which means that when you measure your weight once a day, the Ozeri WeightMaster empowers you to see how your weight changes from the previous day, the last 3 days and the previous week.

Below  is the list of other features of this  weighing scale.
  • Smart LCD with Color Alert Technology – allows you to focus on your weight trend instead of the actual numbers by displaying your weight change in color, with a GREEN illumination for weight loss and RED illumination for weight gain.
  • Immediate and Flawless Results -- Performs and displays all calculations on the scale’s LCD without complicated synching or data connection failures common to more expensive wireless and Bluetooth alternatives.
  • Quality Construction with Built-in Intelligence -- Weighs up to 400 lbs with auto-recognition technology for 5 unique users. Auto-calibrates with StepOn technology. Made out of impact-resistant glass, and equipped with non-slip scratch-resistant feet.
I am not the only who gained weight, our Jack Russell Terrier,  Champ, is also  gaining weight so I  encourage him to walk with me on a treadmill.  He gets excited when I go to the basement and  turn the treadmill on,  he is always ready.   Please watch the video below.

Ready for a Family Close Up

Our family goal this year to  take a family photo at least once a month.  So before January  ends, I am posting the one that we took  for this month.  This was taken last Sunday before we went to church.  We all wore something blue and here we go, month of January - accomplished!
I am also sharing the first box  that I got from Beauty Box 5 this year.  This month's content includes light diffuser, soy milk cleanser, leave in conditioner, nail polish, and anti blemish clear spot patches. 
My daughter is almost 12 so she is starting to  experiment on these beauty products especially hair and skin care.  On the photo above, I am wearing the light diffuser from So Susan, you can't really see it since  our photo isn't  a close up one but I used it and I thought, it is  really nice.  I love the scent of cocoa and coconut in it.  
I have tried  the Novex conditioner  before and loved it  for my hair so I got excited for this one but my daughter said she wants to try it for her long hair too so I gave it to her.  She  said that she likes it because it makes her hair  very  soft and  easy to brush.  I noticed that it makes her black hair super shiny too.
One of my favorite this month is this Pur-Lisse delicate soy milk cleanser.  I love using it before I go to bed.  It  has a blend of soy milk, soy protein, whole oat and white tea.  If you wear make up during the day, this would be great to use to remove that at the end of the day.
Another favorite of mine is this nail polish, it is called Best of my Love from Nanacoco.  I love  Nanacoco's nail polishes!  
This makes for a great DIY spa-day at home.

Sibling Love and the Joy of Being a Parent

Having a boy and a girl is perfect for a small family.  Our children always wish that they have more siblings but  for me, two is  enough.  Even my husband   wishes we have more lol.  Having children is a blessing and a joy.  You get to experience the wonderful feeling  of being a parent and it makes you stronger everyday.  
Parenting is an everyday learning experience in my opinion.  There is no book that can define or tell you how to properly raise your child.  Every child is different  so you could never rely on someone else expertise as it might not be applicable or would not work with your children.  As I mentioned, it is an everyday learning experience.  
 My kids taught me so many things that I never thought I could do.  It can be hard sometimes but that is a part of learning and growing.  
 I am fortunate enough to stay home and take care of  my kids.  I was once a workaholic person that  works in an office  from Monday to Saturday.  I thought I would grow old doing the same thing everyday until I met my husband and became a Mom to these two beautiful and loving kids.  I gave up my career  and  took a role of much important  career at home, being a Mom.  I wouldn't trade it for the world.
 These two  have  a sweet and sour kind of relationship.  One day they are very sweet to each  other and   other days they're not.  I guess, that is just normal for siblings.  I remember my older brother and I always  bicker growing up but there's no doubt that we  love and support and each other.
 I may never give them everything or  be able to afford this fishman triple play from MF but I can truly assure them of my love.  I am blessed to have a husband who  loves  us and supports us  with everything.  For that I am grateful to God everyday.
I couldn't agree more of how parenting was said by  James E. Faust "To be a good father and mother requires that the parents defer many of their own needs and desires in favor of the needs of their children. As a consequence of this sacrifice, conscientious parents develop a nobility of character and learn to put into practice the selfless truths taught by the Savior Himself. "
