Happy Valentines!

Do you love watching beauty gurus on Youtube? I do. Some of my favorites are Bubbi, Xteeener, Say, Michelle & Noe

But I realized something. Despite my envy of them for being so good at what they're doing, I'll never be able to use make up as perfect as how they use it but I wanna be good at one thing which is taking care of my skin and that includes face cleansing, face massaging and overall skin care minus the make up application. 

So tonight, I treated my skin especially my face with some lovin' treats. I cleansed, exfoliated, toned and moisturized. Something that I rarely do for myself.

What was something special that you did for yourself today?

Happy New Year!

It's been almost a year since I posted my last entry.
I was fighting the urge to blog last year. I promised myself to blog after giving birth though and even though it's late, as promised, I will be sharing here my experience during my first pregnancy.

I got pregnant last summer and there were times that I'd get anxious because I could remember vividly how I treated myself right before I knew that I was already conceiving. February of last year, I enrolled in a gym class. I paid for the whole month but because of my busy schedule and (honestly) lack of self discipline, I discontinued. Early March of last year, I had a hair rebond. Imagine the harm of wanting to lose weight & the danger of strong hair chemicals for a pregnant woman?

On my 7th month of pregnancy, I had a vaginal bleeding which forced me to have a 3-day of complete bed rest. I had many sleepless nights. I had weird cravings and mood swings. But generally, my pregnancy went well despite some hardships on my part. I was able to go to school but I had to quit working.

God is really good to me. He answered my prayer to have a normal spontaneous vaginal delivery, He gave me a healthy baby boy, He let me give birth during the semestral break. Blessings were overflowing that I couldn't mind the pain anymore because my heart was full of gratitude.

My little baby boy is now 3 months old and he is very adorable, intelligent and healthy.

Meet my 3-month old baby, Pons Franco

It is indeed and absolutely true that a mother's love for her child is incomparable.

This is the highlight of my 2013. How about you? :)
