The Journey of Being a Mother

Motherhood is one of the most challenging yet precious moment every woman can experience. Being a mother is not an obligation hence it is lifelong responsibility to be always there for your child. It is a fulfilling career that is requires patience, understanding and forgiveness. To become a mother and a wife can be the most successful career that I have ever done in my life. This blog is about my life not just a mother, a wife, but also a professional woman.

I am a married women with two children, one boy and one girl. I was married at the age of 28 and now I’m at my early 30’s. I started this blog so I would have a place to vent when I was pregnant with my 2nd child and my 1st child was only a toddler. I am not ashamed of my experiences and choices I have made with my life and I want to share them with others so they will not be ashamed either. This serves an inspiration to all woman of different ages to continue living there dreams even if it seems impossible.

I was a top performer and an achiever sales representative when I found out that I was pregnant with my first child. I was crushed and I thought that it will be the end of my career since the company that I worked for does not allow woman being pregnant without a husband. My boyfriend and I decided to get married but it does not save me from staying in the company. My boss made a way so I can be one of the employees to be laid off because of my pregnancy. I was in deep sorrow at that time, I have no appetite to eat, I always lock myself out in the room and my hair starts to fall out due to stress. I did not mind my pregnancy until I started bleeding, I was rushed to the hospital and my Gynecologist told me that I need to take care of myself or else I will lose my child. It was an eye awakening sign for me to stop dwelling in the past and continue living in the present. I started taking good care of myself and my friend told me to research about learn how to grow hair faster and I found this Har Vokse hair growth supplement. I used the product after giving birth and it do wonders to my hair. My life changed ever since I deliver my first child, I started to become positive in life and I continued searching for a great career that I can offer my skills and abilities. Right now, I work as a freelance content writer and an officer for public relations. With the kind of work that I do, I will have more time to spend with my family yet I can be productive with the career that I enjoyed most. I believe that being a mother is not a hindrance to become successful in life. You just need to look at the bright side of the things that is happening to your life.

A Wonderful Blessing Sent from Above

Every pain and hardship that I have gone through was erased the moment that I heard your sweet little cry. Carrying you in my womb for 9 nine months was the most memorable experience in my life. Every minute spend with you, every a small kick that you do, every waking moments knowing that we were one give me a lot of reason to be thankful to our greatest Creator.

My life was changed the moment I realized that I am going to be a mother soon. My whole body was jittering and I can’t even speak a word. It was like I was floating in the sky that made me feel that I was in heaven. It was indeed a genuine feeling of true love for my soon to be baby. I immediately called my husband to tell him about the good news followed by my friends and family. Everybody was very excited for our little angel.

After 5 months of waiting, we were able to identify the gender of my little angel. The feeling was unexplainable as the doctor put the machine in my stomach. I felt every movement that my baby is making inside me. After revealing the surprise, my husband and I decided to purchase everything that we need for our first baby. We were both excited to look around for baby’s stuff, I was on the move when I bump into this wonderful Bebe baby crib bedding creation. Crib bedding is important to support every angle of the hard part of the crib. It will provide relaxation and cushion to make every baby’s sleep comfortable. Choosing a good quality of bedding can make the buyer save money. The Bebe bedding collection moved me as I imagine how perfect it will be in my baby’s crib. The collection combines the perfect fashionable flair with a gorgeous bloomy print. Beautiful soft shades of mist and light olive will bring your baby’s special garden to life. The adorable peek-a-boo skirt and the plush feel of luxurious minky make this a special nursery collection indeed. The moment that I saw it, I knew it was the perfect bedding for my beautiful angel. That is why the moment I purchased the Bebe bedding, I knew I made the right decision.

Reminiscing how my motherhood began was still fresh in my mind. Every minute of my waiting moment to the day that I will finally begin the new chapter in my life was a great story that I will always love to share to everyone.

Having a Hobby Can Get You Nice Trophies!

My children and I like playing outside especially during their childhood years. I taught them to play with other kids so they will learn how to interact when they get old. I also taught them to play outdoor games. My aim was not for them to get hurt but for them to stand up again. This way, they will learn how to be independent and overcome any obstacles that they will encounter in the future.

Aside from being a playful mom, I am also a pet lover. We have a lot of dogs in the house. Starting from poodle, beagle, shih tzu, bulldog, yorkshire terrier, to labrador retriever, name it, we have it.

My parents were also pet lovers so I think that it really runs in our blood. They used to adopt street cats and puppies whenever they see one on the street. I tell you, I could not remember anymore how many pets I used to play with when I was a little kid because I could not count them anymore.

Being a pet lover is something my children acquired from me also. That is why they used to complain especially if there were no more dog foods in the storage. They immediately asked me to buy one. One day, however, the complain was not about the lack of food, it was about the skin irritation they were experiencing. I thought it was only allergies so I gave them an anti-histamine to ease the itch, but it did not work out. So, we decided to visit our dermatologist and we found out that those were flea bites.

It took my children about two weeks to get rid of those. They were given topical steroids for two weeks to stop the progress of redness. Our derma told us that the only way not to get flea bites again is to avoid the fleas or kill those. Of course, avoiding can be a hard option for us so she then recommended what she used for her dogs to solve the flea problem. She recommended capstar for dogs.

After that, my children never get flea bites anymore and they enjoyed most of their time playing with dogs.

Being a mom can really be considered as one of the hardest jobs in the world, if not the hardest. I always have to see every bits and pieces of details. I am glad that because of this, my children are now successful running their own pet stores. They have three branches already.

Tips That Will Help You Get Cheaper High Quality Baby Beddings

BebeOne of the things that I love about the Internet is that you can get any product that you want at a much lower price. Although it is impossible for you to see the product before buying it, there are a lot of different reviews that you can read to have an idea of what you can expect from the product.

I love buying baby beddings online and I usually get new designs twice every month. Aside from stopping by Mount Baker Vapor to see the different e liquid flavors, I buy beddings that are regularly on my online shopping list. That being said, you can expect that I already know the ins and outs of how you can get these beddings for less. Fortunately, I have a few tips that you can follow to help you get these beddings for less.

The first thing that you need to do is to find an online store, I always go with Amazon, where you can have a list of different beddings. Find the one that seemed attractive to you and check different online stores to compare their prices. Just make sure that you are going to do this carefully, because some stores will post the lowest price for a baby bedding, but will actually cost you more due to different fees.

Reputable online stores tend to offer free shipping offers for multiple orders. Since I buy multiple baby beddings at a time, I always get my items for free, which already gave me huge savings. Imagine the amount that it would cost, if you were to go to a local store to buy the baby bedding that you want. Aside from these, some stores also offer discount codes that you can use. In fact, some of them will give you discount coupons that can be used for your next purchase.

The reason why online stores have lower pricing is because they don’t maintain a physical store and they don’t have a lot of employees. Since these stores have lower overhead cost, they can still be in profit even with lower pricing. There are a few disadvantages with online shopping such as privacy, security, and safety of the transaction, which can easily be dealt with by looking for reputable online stores..

So there you have it. These may be simple tips, but the truth is that these helped me saved hundreds of dollars. In fact, I already have more than a dozen different baby beddings and I’d bet that someone who gets their baby beddings from a local store have spent more for 6-8 beddings that what I’ve spent.

5 Ways to Design your Nursery

2014-11-25_1229Moving beyond your little one’s bebe beddings, towels, baby pillows and clothing – you would also need to think of creative ways to make sure the nursery will be in good harmony and nurturing to your baby. First time mommy’s always have a hard time on how they will proceed on their baby’s nursery, so I thought of making this brief guide, on how to design a nursery to help babies in their growth years.

Choose other Baby Colors

There are other baby colors other than baby blue and baby pink. Try other colors like lime green, light orange/yellow or turquoise. These can also be fun colors for your little one. You can also combine the ‘baby colors’ with taupe or gray. It will surely make a great color theme for your baby beddings and towels with colors like khaki & blue or gray & yellow.

Opt for Paint

Most parents would readily go for wallpaper when designing their nursery. However, if you will consider it for the long term, opt for painted walls. If you’re thinking of re-designing the nursery once or twice a year, using paint for the walls is recommended. Wallpaper removal and installation can take a longer time (and more difficult) than just repainting the walls. Basic color backgrounds that you can use are white, cream, beige or taupe. This type of colors can easily take in your decors and bebe beddings, which you can easily swap or change later.

Wall Art and Decals

Instead of using full wallpapers for the whole room, consider using eco-friendly wall decals, wall art or wall decors. This type of wall designs are more flexible and can easily be removed or installed. If your little one grew older, you can easily design the room with nature, clouds, stars, sea or whatever theme, he or she may have started to like.

Affordable BeBe Beddings

Opt for affordable, but decorative bebe beddings, curtains, towels and pillows. Using inexpensive items allows you to easily replace them if you suddenly feel the need on changing the nursery designs, without going over your budget.

Convertible Furniture

Look for convertible baby furniture that can be transformed as your baby grows. There are convertible baby pieces like dressers (that converts to changing table) or cribs that transform into twin baby beds. This convertible baby furniture is one of the most popular products in the market and you can surely find a style and price that meet your needs.

How sweet can it be to provide care and love by making sure the nursery looks great? This life-giving love is important and the love that you show can be far reaching. As suggested in one press brief from a liver supplement called Denamarin, the health and well being benefits will be long lasting, without you even consciously knowing it.

Feeling good with baby pillows and bebe beddings

pillow_pink_crown_LJust like any mom, we’re always tempted to make sure our little one feels like royal from the moment they wake up, until they sleep. Yes, I feel guilty about that ‘special royal treatment’ I provide to my baby, but isn’t that what you’re supposed to do. I’ve transformed the bedroom and nursery many times, and I felt that’s important for both of us.

After taking a diet supplement and feeling some mild side effects of capsiplex, I’ve wanted to feel good and bedroom change has always been the way for me. When it feels good to me, it’s supposed to be the same way with my child.

My suggestion in baby beddings is to always go for the same brand for towels, bed linen and pillows, since the same manufacturer basically uses the same materials for all their baby bedding products. A mommy should be able to feel the linen, making sure they’re naturally healthy, breathable, soft and gentle to the skin.

Baby pillows       

For pillows, make sure that the filling has first class white polish goose down (90%) and small white goose feathers (10%), on a 100% cotton white twill weave casing. The exquisite softness should be smooth and gentle to touch, which your baby will surely love to sleep upon.

Just remember to shake the pillows everyday to prevent the filling from piling and crumpling. Don’t forget to expose the pillows to fresh air, but not necessarily to direct sunlight, fog and high humidity. Also, make sure you don’t allow your other kids to play around with your baby’s pillow, since beating reduces the firmness and softness.

Don’t use your vacuum cleaner for cleaning. If you need the pillows to be washed, you can have them commercially laundered from shops with special-capacity washing machines. If you have to do the washing yourself, follow wash instructions as always, and have the pillows left in the dryer until completely dry. Line drying is not advisable for pillows since the filling usually goes lumpy.

Bebe beddings

Pair your baby pillows with beddings, always going for 100% cotton baby satin weave linen, since this provides the greatest softness, smoothness and comfort for your baby. Bebe beddings that are naturally soft and supple are breathable and naturally hypo-allergenic.

When washing (usually at 40ºC), use non-bio detergent without any bleaching agent. Then, easily hang them dry on washing line or even on a tumble dryer. Though, make sure the dryer is not too hot for the bedding. You need to remove the linen immediately from the dryer to avoid the formation of creases.

 

 

Lazy Streak….

dog-bedding_1407311177Have you ever had that moment where you extremely lazy and you just didn’t know what to do about it? I’ve realized that sometimes we just need that one berserk moment in the middle of a regular day to get it out of our systems!

I’ve been experiencing a lazy streak lately wherein I noticed that I’ve been more absent minded than usual and I haven’t quite been as productive as I usually am. It quickly went away this afternoon though when I was going through my wallet and I couldn’t find my pet insurance card.

I like to keep my pet insurance card in my wallet at all times in case of emergencies. It just sounds so much more logical to keep it there in case an emergency occurs and I have to run out to the vet. I just can’t imagine myself being able to remember to pick out my pet insurance card from my drawer while I’m stammering to get help for my dog. By the way, Go Pet Plan is the answer to the your question “what is the best pet insurance for dogs?”

So anyways, while I was looking through my wallet, I suddenly couldn’t find my pet insurance and that definitely kicked the rut out of my system! I quickly looked all over my room in hopes of finding it but I just wasn’t in luck.

To my surprise, after I had given up and decided to just ask for another one, it popped out of nowhere as I fanned my Bebe bed sheets. There it was, nestled somewhere in between the creases of my ever beloved Bebe sheets which I totally adore and knew would bring me luck!

Although it was a bit frustrating, I was glad that I found my pet insurance anyways and that I could just go back to lying in my brand new Bebe bed sheets that are so comfortable and have brought me tremendous luck so far!

I’m a bit of a shopaholic…

2014-11-17_1921I’ll be honest, I’m a bit of a shopaholic. There’s just something about new things that really excites me! When I was younger, I was obsessed with buying new clothes that every summer I’d have to throw a garage sale just to get rid of my clothing to add more space into my cabinets for new ones.

Now that I’ve gotten a bit older, I try to be a bit smarter with my purchases. Instead of buying clothes every week, I try to mix it up by buying more useful items such as stuff for the house and whatever I can make the most use out of.

I’ve also become a bit more unselfish when it comes to shopping, as well. When I feel like I don’t really have anything to buy myself- I buy things for my boyfriend. That way, I get to shop but I’m also being thoughtful in my boyfriends’ eyes.

This week I was really happy about the things that I was able to purchase: BeBe beddings for myself and Fenugreek capsules for my beau.

Beddings for me because it was about time that I had changed mine and the BeBe beddings I was able to purchase were just so irresistible! They were soft, comfy, made of high quality materials and not to mention, cute which is basically what I always look for in beddings.

My boyfriend was extremely happy when the benefits of fenugreek and that I had gotten him a refill of his Fenugreek and Testosterone capsules since I did overhear him saying that he was running low on them. I really appreciate how he’s been working on his body more and of course, I love the fact that I can support him in any way possible.

They say it’s the small things that count and I’m happy that I made two people happy today- mine and my boyfriends!

Capsium Peppers

chili-pepper5Life just seems to be getting better and better. Aside from the wonderful solstice season coming up, I was also recently able to buy the most perfect set of bed sheets that currently channels the one thing that I’ve been going crazy over lately- peppers.

I was walking around the mall the other day when I happened to pass by the cutest set of sheets that had peppers printed all over it. Imagine, red, yellow and green peppers that are so quirky and so me- it was definitely love at first sight and its things like these that I try my hardest not to let pass by.

I’ve acquired a recent obsession to peppers since I’ve discovered Capsium peppers. Since I’ve been more health conscious, not only have I been working out more but I’ve also been more aware of the food that I’ve been eating.

I read that Capsium peppers are very good in speeding up one’s metabolic process and since I’m such a sucker for anything and everything spicy, I’ve been adding them to my diet more and more.

Coincidentally, Capsiums are also the main ingredient in my weight management supplement, Side Effects of Capsiplex and so far, the results have been nothing but amazing.

Of course, I can’t expect to lose enough weight without making a conscious effort to eat healthier so adding more peppers and my other secret, healthier eating efforts has definitely helped throughout this entire process.

I know they say that you can never really buy happiness but with my healthier physique and my brand new pepper plastered bed sheets, I would definitely have to disagree.

Not only am I starting to look better, now I can also sleep in style. These are definitely a few things that make my day.

What’s been making you happy lately?

Well, I’m THAT woman!

What-do-you-need-for-christmas-630x320There are two things that have made me extremely happy this week: new comforters and my boyfriend that never ceases to surprise me.

Ok, backtrack.

You know how as a woman, you can never want enough things? Well, I’m THAT woman.

I’ve recently ticked off most of the things that I’ll be needing for the Christmas season like wrapping paper, new plates and a few other stuff. As I was walking to pay for all these things I was distracted by a lovely set of comforters that, even if it was not on my original list of things to buy, I knew that I needed… ok fine, that I really really needed. So I came home with more than one thing on my list which I totally do not regret buying!

As soon as I got home, I immediately made it a priority to change bed beddings into my brand new, did I mention, drop dead gorgeous sheets. To my surprise, I found the most adorable thing that my ever loving boyfriend forgot to tell me about- his diet pills called Unique Hoodia capsules.

I was pleasantly surprised to find out that he was also trying out these supplements as well since I was starting to wonder why he had suddenly started to look better and even have a better disposition.

Lately, I’ve noticed a good kind of change in him. He’s happier, he seems healthier and he’s definitely got more energy in him as compared to his regular self. At first I thought it was just one of those good days where he was just full of energy and that in a couple of days, the hyper version of himself would eventually wear off- but even after a week, it hasn’t.

He admitted to taking Unique Hoodia for 2 weeks now and that he took it because he was seeing the great results on me and he didn’t want to be left behind.

I think it’s officially safe to say that a couple that take Unique Hoodia together, is a happier and stronger couple!
