Discover the Secret Life of Pets with McDonald's Happy Meal

Sometimes I wonder why some dogs love to play "go fetch" and why cats have resting cat face. I also wonder what our pets do when we're not home. I'd love to know why.

No, really.. that is why I'm excited to watch the movie "The Secret Life of Pets".

As a pet owner, we've had our fair share of secret adventures with our frenchie, Humphry.

He is, of course, Maia's bestest friend and we couldn't have found a better companion for our kiddo. Our daughter loves pets and the last time she cried for hours was when her pet "Chickie" died. Saddest day ever.

Change The Way You See Beauty

The story I'm about to share with you is not sponsored. Yup. That's right. I'm not getting paid. But this is one post I've wanted to write all week.

This is, of course, a beautiful story that brings me closer to who I want to be, and something that simply gives me a (very worthwhile) flash of happy memories. There are beautifully unexpected ways and life-changing moments that can change the way we see beauty. As for me, giving birth was one of them, and I find so much beauty in motherhood and new life.

I'm lucky to have a beautiful and healthy baby boy who's gone through so much in the first weeks of his life. After a miscarriage last year, I got pregnant again. However, things took a turn and I had no choice but to have an emergency C-section to save my baby's life.

Lady's Choice' New Roast Beef Spread and Chicken BBQ Spread: Are You Team #ChickenorBeef?

Someone told me a few years back that being a mom is the hardest thing I can ever be. I didn't believe that until it happened to me. It's just crazy. There's no end. There's no time-out. There's no break. There are always a lot of things happening. Sometimes when I'm feeling super crazy, I just start blogging. Like now for instance, I'm breastfeeding while typing and munching a sandwich. Perfect timing.

Also, I made some yummy sandwiches to cheer up my daughter who's feeling under the weather today. To be honest, I didn't know how to get rid of the flu instantly but I really wanted to make her feel better. Thankfully, I got to try the newest range of Lady's Choice sandwich spreads: Roast Beef Spread and Chicken BBQ Spread. Oh, and I love their cheeky #ChickenOrBeef hashtag too. And that leads us to...

Decisions, decisions. Team Chicken or Team Beef? Which team are you on?

Obviously, I couldn't just choose one because I'm a meat lover and I take my liking to Lady's Choice spreads seriously. Really torn between these two spreads, but there really is no use to overthinking so I tried both.

Keep Calm and Kiss Aging Goodbye | Win Shopping Points from Watsons

Being a WAHM leaves me with barely any downtime. Still, having clear, smooth, and radiant skin is definitely a must. I'm sure many women will agree with me that preventing, eliminating or even reversing aging should be done as young as 20.

With all the stress and bad habits that come with hectic, modern lives, women are aging faster than ever before.  If you’re not careful, those cute little laugh lines, now making an early guest appearance, might just stay on until they’re full-fledged crow’s feet. Bad news, I know...  :(

But wait, I’ll break the good news: We can finally kiss aging goodbye because Watsons, a proponent of anti-aging, believes that  we can do so with great skincare throughout any age. That's with the help of its latest anti-aging campaign, Kiss Aging Goodbye, where you can also get great deal and huge discounts on anti-aging products.

Fewer lines in just a few weeks? It’s possible! So postpone your next Botox sesh, 'cause you may not need it after all!

Eye Spy: Helix-D Eye Serum

I spy under my eye...

my new favorite Helix-D eye serum!

I'm pretty sure you know that sun exposure can lead to skin damage and premature aging. You might also find visible signs like age spots, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles. Sadly, the damage is usually irreversible or may require expensive medical treatments to correct.

With so many eye skincare products to choose from, it’s sooo hard to play favorites. But that won’t stop me from trying out Helix-D eye serum. I've been using it for a month now and here’s why I'm loving it...

Celebrate Wellness with Robinsons Supermarket's Celebrate Promo

Our husband-and-wife combo this morning...

Me: Where did you go? 
Husband: I was Pokemon hunting and found a rare Lapras.
Me: Ok. Let's go to Robinsons Supermarket.
H: Sure, I want to level up. *all smiles*

Oh well. Husband has decided that we are gonna go Pokemon hunting while grocery shopping today. That is always fun and it encourages him to get outside and exercise. Before, any mention of grocery or shopping, there were alibis, fights and hissy fits. Now, I just tell him we're going to go catch some Pokemon, and it's 100 percent better. Also, he has reached Level 21 and he wanted to celebrate. Oh, and to hatch eggs. But wait...

There’s more reason to celebrate in July as Robinsons Supermarket sustains health and wellness festivities with the launch of “Celebrate” promo.  It's 3rd leg of the year-long “Route to Wellness’ journey and will carry on in all Robinsons Supermarket stores the entire months of August and September.
