Blogging tips when you have kids at home

Friday
blogging tips kids at home workstation desk (3)

A lot of people wonder how I maintain a blog with three energetic kids. My Instagram is only a fraction of what I do every day. There are days when it’s easy (especially when the kids are napping!) but there are days that are extremely challenging. My kids are not always keen on taking a nap every day. All mothers can relate that we “borrow” time for ourselves when the kids are busy with other stuff – which is how I survived blogging all this time. I’m going to share a few tips on how I’m able to balance motherhood […]

My House Cleaning Schedule with Printable To-Do list!

Friday
my cleaning schedule to do list free printable (6)

While cleaning and organizing sounds impossible with small kids running around almost all the time, having a guide (aka to-do list) helps me keep tasks on track. Ticking off everything from my list, of course, doesn’t happen all the time. But I still like my chores and errands where I can see them. With all the stuff I need to do, a physical reminder is a great way to keep everything in check. I divided my to-do list in three sections: daily, weekly, and monthly. Daily is for stuff that needs to be done every single day like making the […]

Playroom Makeover

Tuesday
playroom makeover

  I decided to do a little decluttering at home starting with my kids’ room. I switched the playroom to be their room since I can easily check up on them from the kitchen. The most challenging part is sorting all of their toys and puzzles. I honestly think they have more stuff than me! There’s a tee-pee, toddler table, chairs, and a play kitchen that needed to be places strategically in their room. Not to mention the countless Lego we have at home! Since I became a mother, I’ve been more inclined to use more colors when it comes […]

Wednesday

In partnership with adidas A New Year is a good time to invest in a new wardrobe. But being a mother sometimes mean limited sartorial choices. I always go for basics and essentials that can easily be styled for any occasion. I believe that a great wardrobe is a mix of casual basics complemented by fashionable and contemporary designs. It is important to invest in timeless essential pieces that can be worn throughout multiple seasons and can be combined endlessly. Running around three energetic little boys require both stamina and proper clothing! Houston weather has been kind to us lately, […]

Do-It-Yourself Fun Chart For Kids and Mom

Monday
do it yourself chart toddlers mom (3)

Today, I like to share our to-do list chart for my eldest boys and for myself as a mom of three children. This chart  helps me especially my kids with our daily routine. My eldest boys are in pre-school and they are already in the stage where they can do things on their own and even in doing household chores from time to time (putting away clean silverware from dishwasher, making their bed etc.). Also, I decided to create this chart to remind them of other things they need to learn like leading the prayer and memorize Bible verses to […]

Take the Journey with Diono Convertible Carseat

Tuesday

  Finding the right car seat for kids can be confusing. There are plenty to choose from but picking the best one is always a challenge. As a mother, the safety of our kids is always the number one priority. Knowing they’re tucked in well and good when we’re traveling gives me peace of mind. My family and I have been using Diono even before I partnered with them. We trust Diono because of the quality and the attention to detail they have for their products. We used to buy new carseat whenever our kids couldn’t fit in them anymore. […]
