Just want to mention that I was recently asked by the self development secrets.com to recommend a self-help book that has helped me the most in life. You can read the write-up here, where you will also find books that got mentioned the most by other bloggers. And while your on the site, enjoy other previously published posts on how to lead the life you deserve to live, happily and purposefully.Read More
I just want to share recent work that I did for Bentgo, a bento box option for those who want healthier meals on the go. Unlike other bento boxes, the Bentgo Salad box (seen below) gives you the option to pack salads and dressing. It’s a great option to have especially during the warmer months when we crave to eat something lighter and healthier. If you want to read about the salad dish I made, you can find the post here.
Have a great weekend!Read More

We recently participated in Family Circle Magazine’s “Come On, Get Happy” feature that explored how different families add fun and magical moments in their lives without spending too much money. The May issue has plenty of great ideas and suggestions on enjoyable activities and things to do for parents and children alike. Very timely with school finishing soon!
Now, here are some fun links for your weekend:
- Looking for summer reads? Check out this pretty extensive list.
- Loving these adorable dolls via Etsy.
- More fun activities for kids this summer that do not involve an iPad or any electronics.
- If you are in New Jersey and are looking for something new to do this Memorial Weekend, why not visit the state’s Botanical Gardens?
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend to those of you in the US! See you here next week where I will be celebrating the blog’s one-year anniversary. Yay! Can’t believe it, time truly flies!Read More
I recently contributed to a Bentgo recipe cookbook where different bloggers prepared their own meal ideas using bento boxes. Using these boxes brought me back to my childhood in the Philippines when my lunch was often packed in these nifty containers. Back then, my lunch containers were girly with floral designs and mostly in pastel colors. Love that the color and design of today’s Bentgo boxes are so sleek and fun.
The thing I love about these boxes is that they are made up of little compartments, which often encourages me to think of a well-balanced meal. A little protein, carb, some fruits and veggies, and maybe even a sweet treat. What do you use to pack your lunch and your kids’?
P.S. Thanks to my cousin Gail for introducing the Bentgo boxes to me.Read More
