I discovered that the @bananapeelofcl Crewe Junkyard flip-flops sent for my kids are durable, made of eco-friendly materials, have anti-slip feature because of its molded rubber and EVA bottoms and it also offer arch support for all day sole comfort. I highly recommend this to actively moving, dancing, running and jumping kids like my boys. These flip-flops are thick which measures half an inch thick. This just means, it will definitely pass the wear and tear test which playtime brings to these flip-flops. Pwedeng ma-abuse but it will stand the test of use because looks and feels of the rubber slippers, durable na ! I wrote a review on the blog to check it out. Also, I am giving away one pair of Banana Peel flip flops to one lucky follower.

Mid-week laundry is a must now for our household because the boys (4 to be exact) have 2 large piles of dirty clothes. I feel pa there's an urgency to wash damp clothes due to sweat from daily basketball trainings, soiled and sometimes stained clothes of my active gradeschooler, husband's uniform and jacket na nalanghap na lahat ng Manila pollution due to daily e-scooting. All these clothes spell BACTERIA! Bacteria is the very reason for malodors or musty-smell or kulob smell on clothes. It's not only because they weren't air dried during rainy seasons. Bacteria is eeewl! Kalaban natin yan. Sharing with you some Labada and Freshness Tips: 1. URGENTLY wash high-risk used clothes. These are sweaty clothes, health-care uniforms or if user came from the hospital, soiled clothes due to play like PE uniforms, clothes used in food preparation, and cloth diapers are some examples. Washing them ASAP will prevent germs and bacteria from growing and spreading. 2. Stop spreading STAPH. Staph is a type of germ present on our skins even healthy people has this. This alone doesn't cause an infection, if yes, this coul make the person and others sick. To prevent it from spreading, thorough handwash is a must (we use @safeguard_philippines ), keep cuts or wounds covered until healed, and never share towels, undies or cosmetics. 3. Detergent is not enough. Use @downyphilippines AntiBac. I am happy I have an automatic washer which can adjust water temperature to 60 degrees Celsius . Research says that clothes washed in hot water actually kills pathogenic bacteria, same with those dried under the sun. But if these factors aren't present, then bacteria-growth and spread may occur causing the malodor. #DownyAntiBacFresh has an active ingredient which ruptures bacteria cell wall preventing bacteria growth making clothes smell fresh. It effectively eliminates the musty-smell or kulob on them. Ayoko talaga ng amoy kulob, no one wants it. Dahil pala yun sa germs. So for longer lasting freshness, use #DownyAntiBacFresh. Kasi tayong mga seguristang mommies, #KontraGerms tayo right? Para iwas sakit. Healthy Family is a Happy Family.
Thank you Nestle for inviting me yesterday to your intimate lunch get-together. I loved every recipe which Chef Tess #wellnesized for us. My personal favorites are Fish Kare-Kare, Papaya Okoy, the Tofu Nachos, and (not part if menu) unlimited vendo Nescafe Cafe Mocha. What do you moms think when you hear Nestle? We were asked that same question and it was easy for me to answer it with Quality. Kaya naman, Nestle products are staples in . My cart is never without a Nestle product. May I also add, that kasi naman there's a Nestle item for everybody in the family. I personally grew up with MILO yung in can pa and have vivid memories of my mom drinking a cup of Nescafe, which later on I found myself having it too every morning and afternoon. Then there's Nestle Crunch my all time fave chocolate since high school and Nestle Nestea Iced Tea. Breakfast faves are Koko Crunch and Neatle Fresh Milk, which my breastfed bunso drinks. I can go on and on with my fave Nestle products basta all I can say is, my heart, my brain, and my tummy are full of joy, learnings, and healrhy food from Nestle's lunch meet up yesterday. Would you like me to share some wellnessized recipes on the blog loves? 😊

I can't contain how joyful I am with my takeaways from the lunch meet up with @stephaniezubiri . Sharing a few today: 1. You just need 2 star recipes on your menu. You don't need to super impress guests by cooking too many, you own a home not a restaurant. 2. Have a signature scent so people will remember your homes well, the conversations and the experience. 3. Keep kitchen and toilet clean ALWAYS. You will have guests over and they frequent the toilet. Be generous in having @sanicare_ph kitchen towels, paper towels, and tissues. 4. Herbs get longer ref shelf life if kitchen/paper towel is used to absorb moisture. Put in in a glass container too. Choose a product produced from safe materials such as @sanicare_ph. Naku.. I can't wait for #StepsBySteph video to come out. Ang daming tips and hacks. Plus the venue where we had our meet up was so lovely! Abangan niyo ha!
I am happy to be in a very intimate Mom Meet Up by @stephaniezubiri where she gave us so many practical and useful tips on entertaining guests at home. Sometimes kasi nakakatakot mag-host because we always think of what our guests will think or say right?But in this #StepsBySteph meet up, my confidence was boosted, ang dami ko natutunan.She even cooked for us and gave some cooking secrets and home hacks using @sanicare_ph products particularly kitchen/paper towels and boxed tissues. This will be shown on her YouTube channel soon which I will share with you as well. Kayo mga mommies, ano mga worrues niyo when inviting guests over for lunch, dinner or cocktails?
Giveaway Alert!!! Since I resigned from my decade long corporate job to become a full-time mom, I've never felt so fulfilled in what I accomplish on a daily basis. Yaaas! 👏 I have also never washed as many dishes as I have in the last 7 months compared to my entire existence. 🤣 That's why I now experiment and try different brands to see which ones are really effective in removing grease easily, is gentle on hands, rinses quickly to save on water consumption and energy, and economical too. 👍👍👍 Gladly, @bubblemanph passes my dishwashing requirements and so far we're (yes WE because this is my eldest's nightly chore and boy he could go on and on at how he has a not-so-happy relationship with oily plates and greasy pans) happy with how it's performing. 😊😊😊 GIVEAWAY ALERT: I want one of my readers/followers to experience #LoveIsAction for her and her family even on a trivial household chore such as dishwashing. Please.follow @mommypracticality and @bubblemanph and just comment how many and what scents does Bubble Man Dishwashing Liquid come.

Daiso Pink Japan had everyone say Oohh and Aaww especially when THE Hello Kitty surpised everyone with her gracious presence. It was an afternoon filled with learning (Bento making workshop by Des of @nanaysluncheswithlove and Bites of Love), interacting with other bloggers, and SHOPPING! We enjoyed 20% discount on all PINK (even hints of pink) items yesterday. My @daisophilippines haul had all the Tita Finds like toilet paper, paper towels, kitchen towels, grassy floor mats, table LED lamp, plus toys and food for kids. Thank you Daiso Japan Philippines for inviting us! Will write about the fun on my blog soon! #DaisoPinkStore #DaisoJapanPh #DaisoJapanPinkStore
This warm smile that greets you when I see you comes straight from my joyful heart. It also helps that my breath has Xtra Freshness that I #TasteConfidence everytime I brush my teeth.

My usual errand or super casual mom-uniform. Wpuld you believe this is a maternity shorts? I don't need to wait to be preggers again to wear it. It's breastfeeding-friendly too because if I lift my shirt to feed, you won't see too much skin because this maternity shorts got it covered. 😍 Practical and functional. That's what I always look for when purchasing anything. How about you momma? What maternity or nursing wear do you still use? ❤

Asthma, allergies, and eczema could possibly be triggered by many factors such as dust, smoke, pollen, and others which are present indoors - our very homes. Akala natin, we're safe at home. But not all the time. Attacks could be minimized or prevented if we are assured that the air that circulates in our homes are clean or purified and multiplied! Thanks to the technology of @dyson Pure Cool, I can finally say that HOME is not only where the HEART is, but also where the HEALTH is.

Somebody turned 15 yesterday and said it was his happiest in his recent teen years. He said, he's really happy from home to school to home! ❤ Happy birthday to my first-born! I am overjoyed that God answered my many prayers for you and that you are made happy on your natal day. I am happy too that you said you realized how much many others appreciate you for being yourself and love you for your craziness.

Happy you really know that now. 😊😊😊 I pray that you get all your heart's good desires and that you may grow up to be a yound man who lives out his life's purpose according how God designed you to be. ❤❤❤ I love you forever @d.lucas01 anak! Happy birthday! God bless you always! ❤❤❤ #DandreLucas
I made myself glasses of FRESH Orange Juice coming from navel oranges from Australia. I love oranges because of its high Vitamin C content and many other health benefits. An orange a day boosts the mood, tames afternoon hunger pangs, keeps blood pressure and heart healthy. Aussie oranges and other fruits are so tasty, that's because of Australia's rich and red soil and perfect climate too! Masasabi natin momsh na isa rin siyang natural superfood! 🍊🍊🍊 Unfortunately, #AussieOranges are not available all year so take advantage of this seasonal fruit in participating retailers including Rustans and Shopwise. You may also be able to try them before purchasing during their in-store sampling sessions this September. 🍊🍊🍊 What are you waiting for momshsss? Get a taste of Australia today. Hindi man tayo makapunta dun agad, at least we could taste it by bringing home @tasteaustraliaph's #AussieOranges. - - - #TasteAustralia #momblogger #mommyblogger #bloggers #bloggersph #momslifeisthebestlife #food #orange
My terrific toddler immitates his Kuya Wes a lot. From the way he stands, he laughs, he speaks, and choices of food (fave ang Chicken McNugets forever) and also toys. Even if malayo agwat nila, they sometimes fight over toys. Wes still plays a lot kasi, while Damien naman says mine, mine, mine a lot, understandable for his age. 😊 So as parents it's important for us to model a good behavior because we should walk our talks. They observe us closely and easily pick up action and speech from us. We learned that both Quality and Quantity Time are significant in forming their characters. That's why I am happy to be a SAHM now I get to be with them and be really present for them. 🙏🙏🙏 For working parents, I know the feeling of having only weekends to spend bonggang bonding time with the kids, I've been there. 😉 Here's one awesome bonding idea, watch the movie Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation as a family, then surprise them with @mcdo_ph 's Happy Meal toys afterwards! Tignan ko lang if hindi kayo iHUG nang super tight at iKISS nang paulit-your! Enjoy! ❤❤❤ - - - #mcdoph #mcdohappymeal #happymeal #hoteltransylvania3 #hoteltransylvania #mommyblogger #bloggerph #blog #mombloggers #momblogger #momlifeisthebestlife #momlife #carseat #bloggersofinstagram #bloggerlife #bloggerlifestyle #MommyPracticalityLikes #DeangeloWesLiam #DamienLouie1
Since this little one was born, we never went out on a road trip without buckling him up on his car seat. He's now a toddler and how we wish this @graco Extend2Fit 3-in-1 Car Seat was already available back then even when my older kids were born. Because this car seat grows with the child from infant to toddler. Indeed a practical investment for a growing family. Since it's Graco, a German brand, you're assured of quality, durability, and highest safety standards of all their baby gears. This is my brand of choice as well as many smart and practical moms around the world. Kaya naman, his crib, his high chair, his stroller, and now his car seat are all Graco. ❤ - - - - - #GracoPh #MommyPracticalityXGracoPh #mommyblogger #bloggerph #blog #mombloggers #momblogger #momlifeisthebestlife #momlife #carseat #bloggersofinstagram #bloggerlife #bloggerlifestyle #MommyPracticalityLikes #DamienLouie1
Wore this @malditaofficial floral, navy blue wrap dress as my Sunday's best outfit last weekend. I breastfed in it, it also looked conservatively sexy, it hid my mom-belly and love handles too. Love how this wrap dress made me feel beautiful and ready to be dated by hubby. Yun lang, kids were in tow so we dated as a family instead. 📸: IG son Wes . . . #MommyPracticalityOOTD #ootd #ootdph #lifestyleblogger #Malditashopping #malditaPh #MommyPracticalityXMaldita #momlife #momlifeisthebestlife #mombloggerph #mombloggers #mombod #mommyfashion
WATCH: Mga mommies out there! 👋👋👋 Remember the @malditaofficial fitting photos I shared? MALDITA caught my shopping experience and selection process on cam. I love their new collection, they are so versatile and could be worn Day to Night. Their fits are Mom-Bod-friendly (could breastfeed in it and hides unwanted tummy bulges) and can be worn even if you gained a little (garterized cropped pants and adjustable wrap dress). 👍 Every mom needs a shopping Me-Time kahit quick lang. We need self-care to feel rejuvenated and beautiful again. It's true what Rajo Laurel shared in one event, that iba ang confidence na nabibigay ng nice clothes that fit well, to any woman. Ang tindig and kilos nag iiba. We all deserve this moms.❤ So thank you Maldita for making this happen for me! ❤ Thank you for my new clothes which came at the most perfect timing. God must've whispered to you guys to pick this momma who washes piles of dishes and scrubs used pans all day, who breastfeeds on demand, who cooks and does laundry 3-4x a week, and cleans the whole house, all while being an intentional playful mom to her kids.❤❤❤ - - - #malditaph #malditashopping #MommyPracticalityXMaldita #MommyPracticalityOOTD #ootd #ootdph #momapproved #momlifestyle #bloggersofinstagram #bloggersph #momblogger #mombod
