Body Shaper

All it took was a little ribbing from my friend, Gevi and I bought a body shaper/ body binder from SO- EN. That's not the end of it, after wearing it for over a week, I bought two more as back ups. This time, I seek a different brand to try out, Sogo. The battle of the brands, Sogo and SO-EN begins.

bottom: SO-EN body shaper in cream PhP499.75

Body shaper goes by many names like body pincher, elastic waistband, waistline reducer and body binder.

#babyMartinez Wears A Rainbow Loom Bracelet in Fishtail Pattern


Ever since my mom's 10 year old student gave #babyMartinez her very own Rainbow Loom bracelet in fishtail pattern, she didn't want to take it off. She wears it even when she is drinking her milk lol


#babyMartinez and her fishtail Rainbow Loom bracelet

Look at how curious she is with her new toy hahaha I take it off when she sleeps. I don't have an idea where this trend started but from what I have gathered, most grade schoolers are so into it. I heard some girls who have entrepreneurial skills sell them for as cheap as PhP 20 per bracelet. 


Rainbow Loom Fishtail Pattern

Rainbow Loom is the trend these days but parents should be aware that there are fake or counterfeit already coming out in the market. Click here to learn about the danger of counterfeits and how to spot them.

Naubusan ata ng same color yung bata kaya magkaiba yung colors ng band hahaha

Mrs. Graham's Macaron Cafe in Quezon City



February 15, 2014

Mrs. Graham's Macaron Cafe
51-C Scout Rallos St.,
Quezon City
+63915 8122662


After having a sumptuous feast at Big D' Smokehouse, we went to Mrs. Graham's Macaron Cafe just a few streets away for dessert.


clockwise from left: Tequila Rose, Salted Caramel, Baileys and White Coffee (center) PhP 45/pc.

We were greeted with shabby chic interior, it reminded me of one of my favorite TV show called Shabby Chic, I love it!

We chose 4 from the 13 macarons on display- Tequila Rose, Salted Caramel, Bailey and White Coffee. I am happy to announced that it didn't disappoint! My favorite macarons are White Coffee and Tequila Rose while DH said he liked Baileys and Salted Caramel. As usual, hindi na naman pareho ang taste namin lol Total opposite kami sa lahat ng bagay, kaya nga siguro totoo ang kasabihan na opposites attract.

Other flavors available which I would love to try on my next visit are S'mores, French Toast with Peanut Butter, Pancake with Maple Buttercream, Bibingka with Salted Egg, Dark Chocolate Shells, Tiramisu, PB & J (Peanut Butter & Jelly).

After the cupcake trend, I can safely say that macaron will rule this 2014!


White Chocolate with Green Tea Frosting by Swirl PhP 75

I like the frosting but not the cupcake because it was as hard as a rock! Sige na nga, not naman as hard as a rock but I guess you know what I mean. I should have ordered 2 more macarons na lang sana.
