Loving These Prints

Eversince we moved in here at our humble abode, I have always loved looking at prints in linens and the like. Whenever we go to the mall, I always get fascinated everytime we find our way into the linens section or home section. I feel like I am in linen heaven. Haha! If only I could buy them all! :-P

Anyway, for today, I would just like to feature these prints that we bought for our throw pillow covers. Currently, I am so inlove with owl prints and chevron prints. 

Each throw pillow case costs around Ph50 to Ph80 each. Yes, really affordable!


 When I saw this colorful owl print, I was like, aww! So cute and summer-y!

Trev's Summer Class

My son Trev's classes ended a few weeks ago. Since then, we've been busy looking for a big school for him for next school year. Gosh, it's really hard to scout for a big school nowadays! Tuition fees, for one, are already so expensive. Haha! 

Anyway, since the vacation started, he hasn't stopped asking "Are we going to school now?", repeat ten times. Haha! So, to keep him busy and not bored during the summer break, we enrolled him in a multi-intelligence learning center. Their class started last Monday. 

Then last Friday, they had their first ever swimming class. Trev had the best time ever! He really, really enjoyed the water! We've actually inquired about swimming lessons for him in a swimming school and hubby planned to enroll him next month. Glad that they had an introduction already at his summer school. 


Third day in summer class. Lesson: swimming! I really wanted him to join this so eventhough the class was at 8am and we're like 40 minutes to 1 hour (if traffic) away from the venue (Note: we have no car and we only commute), I was very eager to bring him. So worth it because he had an awesome time. :-)


Here's a short clip of him enjoying the swimming lesson. :-)


Summer class is really fun, not only for the kids but for us parents as well. If I may say also, since this is a summer class, they aren't required to wear uniforms. So, I guess it's the best time for me to dress up my little boy. Who said it's not fun to dress up little boys? :-P
His OOTD on his first day in summer class. :-P

I remember, when he was still a baby, I have always looked for cute frog suits, shirts, bottoms and even shoes for him. Believe me, even if my son is already 3 years old now, I still sometimes find myself looking at baby boy clothes. I can't help it, they're so cute! If you have a baby boy, I found adorable bottoms for baby boys at Zalora Marketplace. Everything is so nice! I particularly love the ones with space shuttle prints as it's one of my son's favorites. If only he's still a baby! :-P I have actually shopped at Zalora before when I bought a gift for my hubby's birthday and now, I'm again browsing the site for boy clothes for my son's summer class! 

Anyway, we're still torn where to enroll him for next school year. We're actually considering the Montessori school near our place. He passed the assessment test there already. Hurray! We'll see. We still have a few more schools to visit before we make our final decision.

Simply Music: Play Piano Now

I was surfing the internet when I chanced upon Northampton Massachusetts piano lessons. You see, my son's school year has ended a few weeks ago. Now that summer vacation has started, my husband and I have been busy looking for summer activities that our son can attend to. My husband wants our son to attend swimming lessons. Actually, we've already set that next month. For now, he's currently enrolled in a multi-intelligence center which by the way, he loves so much. Anyway, the center is really good as it targets the interest of their students and uses it in the child's learning. I thought maybe it's also good if my son learns other skills of his interest, like playing the piano perhaps. 

When I learned about JeffO Piano Studio, I had this sudden realization. What if my son would like to learn how to play the piano, too? Oh, I would support him all the way. In the website, I learned that kids of any age can perform great sounding music even in their very first lessons. Wow, isn't that brilliant? I would love for my son to do that, too. Well, like I said, if it's his interest, I am with him all the way.



I find Simpy Music as a really fantastic institution when it comes to music or playing the piano. The fees are all worth it because I believe that they have effective methods of teaching how to play the  instrument. If only, if only, I am at or near Northampton, Massachusetts, I would definitely bring my son there if he wants to learn how to play the piano. 

Are you looking for an institution where you or any of your loved ones can learn how to play the piano effectively? Why not try Simply Music and learn piano now!

i shop, i save, iprice

One of the best things about online shopping is that you have the convenience of shopping at the comforts of your home. Hubby's birthday is coming up and so I am here, surfing the net on what best gift I could give the love of my life. 

Then, guess what? I stumbled upon iprice. What an awesome site! 

Home Remodeling 101: How to Get Started

If you’re like a lot of people who have lived in the same house for years and years, you’ve said the words “I need to remodel my home now” to yourself several times. After all, living in the same space that feels outdated or like it isn’t serving your best interests can be a frustrating experience.

Trev's Moving Up Ceremony 2015

Trev was two years and seven months when we enrolled him in a play school nearby. He has always loved school since then. And time flew by so fast, last week, we attended his first ever Moving Up Ceremony. 

The playschool where he was enrolled at only caters toddlers (Active Tots Level) and preschoolers (Junior and Senior Nursery Level). Trev belonged to the Active Tots Level. He's met and made friends with a lot of kids of different ages and interests. A happy school year it has been. 

During the ceremony, Trev was in his happy mood, which I was really thankful about. Haha! When it was their turn to do their dance number, he was all out and very active. He danced to his heart's delight. So, so adorable! 


During their first dance number. They had two. :-)
For the toddlers, the theme was Hawaiian
, that was why they were wearing floral.
Credits to his classmate's parents for this pic. :-)

Trev's First Trip To The Cinema

Before this, I can't really remember the last time hubby and I watched a movie at the cinema. It's really been a loooong while. Before we got married, our usual hang out would be at the movie house since my then-BF (now my husband) loves watching movies. It was one of our bonding moments.

When we got married and I eventually got pregnant, we totally set that aside. We still watch movies every now and then, but at the comforts of our own home now. You see, it's a challenge to go to the movie house with a baby in tow you know, haha! No, seriously, aside from the fact that we find movie tickets already expensive now, at least for us, (knowing that we're now a single-income family since I resigned from work after I gave birth), we couldn't just make a trip to the cinema just like that since we have a little tot with us. And even if we could squeeze in the tickets (for a movie that is suited for our son's age) into our budget, one of the things we're actually considering is that our son might not like it inside since it's dark and the sound might be too loud for him. So, we always pass on the idea.

Until last December (yes, this post is long overdue, ooppsie!). When I found out that SM Cinema is offering free movies and one of the movies might suit our son's taste, I thought, maybe it's time for him to try. Just this once lang naman. So, long story short, off we went to Waltermart for Trev's first ever movie house experience.

Lots of people in line to watch the movie, too. Yes, that's the poster of the movie. We watched Thunder and the House of Magic. :-)
