A Mother's Day Treat from Shopwise


Grocery shopping is life! - MOMs.

I was able to watch the  movie Bad Moms again and this grocery store movie clip really made my day last Mother's Day.


Moms I know you would agree to this: "You know you're a mom if going to the grocery store is a vacation."

Whether it is a typical thing or a vacation unplanned, there is something that makes every mom excited on a trip to grocery stores.  It used to be a bonding time when my kids were still small, but I realized you save a lot more time and money when you go without them.  It's like that time when you needed to buy a few things for the bathroom and ended leaving with bags and bagful of children's snack faves.

Make Your Own “Cheeseventions” with Cheez Whiz and Win P 10,000


In our home, and our kitchen is not excempted, creativity is a huge factor.

I made sure my kids grew up with wild imaginations, and I dared not limit their creativity but taught them self-discipline which includes following instructions from us parents.

Educators believe that it’s important to help develop kids’ creativity? Being creative does not only mean they will be good in doing art, it also helps develop them mentally, socially and emotionally. It is every mom's important role to foster creativity in their child in every way they can. 

What can be a better idea to foster creativity than to let them create their everyday snacks?


Cheez Whiz, the number one cheese spread in the country, has been spreading goodness during snack time for over 50 years. What makes it the leading cheese spread in the county is its thickness and amazing cheesy flavor.

Cheez Whiz' thickness is an explosion of flavor that goes with everything. Cheez Whiz is not only for making Creamy Cheesy Sandwiches but for creating different “Cheeseventions” snacks as well.  Kids of all ages can enjoy creating and mixing Cheez Whiz with other ingredients. Its two amazing flavors Original and Pimiento can drive kid’s imagination to create snacks! Make a sandwich tower! Cheez Whiz Mac and Cheese!  Use Cheez Whiz as a dip! The possibilities are endless!

Here’s one example moms and kids can create:



Solar Cheestem:
A delicious snack that’s out of this world!

Ingredients:
* Cupcakes
* Cheez Whiz 220g
* Planet toppers

Procedure:
1. Spread thick Cheez Whiz on top of the cupcakes.
2. Lay out the Solar System placemat on the table.
3. Place a cupcake on each planet outline.
4. Stick the toppers into the cupcakes.

To teach moms and kids to create their #CheezWhizCheeseventions, Cheez Whiz recently held a demo and workshop event at SM Megamall Activity Center last May 8, Tuesday.

AllHome Mother's Day Workshop


Presumptively, just a probability, in my past-life, I could have been an interior designer, that's if the term even existed 100 years ago, or something in that sense.  However, back in the days, when the only art I know is finishing a hard cross-stitch pattern (after having amass almost all the colors of DMC threads), design was a term that never existed in my "mom-thoughts."

Cherry Blossom Feels with Tenya's Sakura Tendon


Japan's sought-after season, the “sakura” or cherry blossom, symbolizes spring time, the season of the year

This makes the season at its busiest, what drives thousands of tourists to Japan yearly.

Finding Your Tribe? The Struggle is REAL!


Bumped into this IG account- smallgirlbigglobe, while browsing over my social media accounts. In her newest post she expressed, "The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. the woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before." These are actually Albert Einstein's words as she quoted.

Equivalently, an FB friend of mine announced in his timeline that he's about to UNFOLLOW some accounts, while me on the the other hand was killing my hands and fingers trying to connect to more people.
