matching mum + baby orange shirt

mum + kid fashion, orange tuesdays, weekend, events

Ever since my son was big enough to tag along whenever we go out or attend an event, I make it a point that we come out dressed in matching colors. That is why I normally get him something which I can match with my existing stuffs or, if not, I’d buy something of my own to match his. That is why I am so delighted when my sister told me she got me this orange shirt a few weeks back. I do not have any orange stuff in my closet that is why I haven’t paired anything with my little man’s cool orange shirt! I was so excited to wear it that I washed it the next day + we are off in our matching orange shirts that weekend! 😀

Two Saturdays ago, we were able to wear the matching orange shirts again when we attended Expo Kid at the Rockwell Tent {check out my previous post about it}. We were not able to look around as much as we’d like as we arrived just in time for the HAPI homeschooling presentation. But, we managed to catch a children’s presentation of Hansel + Gretel, which the little man totally loved, he couldn’t tear his gaze from the stage. It left me with no choice but to stay there + watch the talented kids sing + dance, with those amazing outfits, to boot! It also left me with no chance to browse around some more.

It was a good thing, though, that I was able to buy the little man a new Firefly toothbrush {which I shall blog about soon} + a Cars2 magazine {which the little man is busy reading in the photo, see?} which he spotted at the ABS-CBN Publication booth. We have also snapped a few photos in front of the Cars2 standee, which I shall share with you as soon as I find the time! 😉

So, what do you think? Do we look good in orange or what? 🙂

my new yellow watch

orange tuesdays, browns, simple pleasures, women products, women watches

I have mentioned in my previous post that I rarely buy new stuff for myself + that when I do I almost always get the ones which are on sale. In January, I saw this yellow watch in one of those groupon sites I frequent for best online deals + I instantly fell in love with it! Yellow is one of my favorite colors + I felt like I have to get one of those. It was also a good thing that they are up at 50% off, otherwise, I wouldn’t have bought it {yes, I am that cheap! :D}

Anyway, apart from its color, I also love this watch since it is a sports watch + I can just simply wear with just about anything: jeans, shorts + plain tees {my kind of fashion!}. Very versatile, which sort of works for me since I am not really into going through loads of accessories to choose from every time I dress up 😀

My watch came in the mail a lot earlier than scheduled, so two thumbs up to that online groupon site! It also comes with this cute brown box, + this tiny orange pillow, to boot! 🙂

What do you say, do you think my watch looks good on me? 😉

on taking vitamins

women's health, orange tuesdays,

Back in the days I am not really that much of a fan of medicine + pills, the less I do about them, the better. I am not really that sickly + I would only have the proverbial cough + colds once or twice in a year + that is it,  otherwise I have a clean bill of health all-year round.

It was an entirely different ballgame when I got pregnant. It became a daily part of my system to pop those supplements + vitamins to ensure that I + the little peanut inside me will be in the pink of healthy in the duration of my pregnancy + beyond.

There were more pills + prescription drugs when I gave birth as I was a C-section. Antibiotics need to be taken a few times everyday to be sure the wounds would heal faster + I won’t have any infections or other complications.

Nowadays, I take Vitamin C daily just to be sure I will be less susceptible to diseases + to give my immune system a much needed boost. + about 4 days ago, I have also started taking Vitamin E. Apart from being good for the heart, Vitamin E is also good for the skin. With all the stress full-time parenting entails, with having less time to care for myself, I needed that extra help to keep my skin healthy-looking + well-hydrated. This particular vitamin I am taking even promises younger-looking skin in 10 days, so I guess we’ll see in a few days if it is effective for me 🙂

It was also a good thing that this particular brand of Vitamin E is currently having a promo. I got 4 pieces for free when I purchased 16 pieces, that’s a lot of savings already 🙂

What vitamins + supplements are you taking?

Linking this with Orange Tuesdays 🙂

I was not compensated for this post but was merely sharing a product I have tried lately.
