About Christmas Gifts and Cashback (Blogmas Series #7)

 

Hello! How’s your Christmas season so far? 🎄

I love giving gifts to friends and family. I always have. I love receiving them too. When I turned 18, I had a debut party which is a traditional celebration done in the Philippines. I remember asking my friends to give me homemade presents rather than store-bought ones. I’ll never forget that.

Back-to-School 2018

 

Baby Girl has been back to school for 2 weeks now. This is the first time in a while where she isn’t the new girl anymore. Although she has never really showed us any signs of stress, I could tell that this year she was a little bit more relieved than in the past. She’s 10 years old and started CM2 (grade 5) this year. This also means this is her last first day in elementary school. Eeekk  – where did time go??? 😱 I guess that’s how it feels like when you become a mom at a young age. I’m 32, so technically not-too-old (don’t you dare say anything about that. yes you!), but when I look at my ten-year old I kinda do feel old. Harhar.

Beauty Box – July and August 2018

Oh my God! I never thought I’d get it, but I finally received my Birchbox July and August 2018 on the last day of August. In fact, I was thinking of contacting Birchbox when by surprise I found it waiting for me in my mailbox. You see, we moved to a new apartment and I honestly forgot until the last minute about the change of address. I changed it online, but I knew that there was a big chance that they had probably sent it already to my old address. Honestly, I don’t know what happened. I don’t know if Birchbox went out their way for me to get my box or perhaps the new owners of my old apartment did. My bet is on Birchbox though. Anyways, I’m just glad that I finally got my box – plus this one is special, it’s the July and August combined!

Shopping Cart: Back-to-School 2018 – Fille (Zara, H&M, Mango, and Tape à l’Oeil)

After shopping for myself (click here for the post), it is time to shop for my 10-year school daughter who is going back to school on the 3rd of September. Actually, she’s sorta going back this week, but half-day only. The school calls it « stage de remise à niveau ». When the director asked me if it was something I was interested in for Baby Girl, I instantly agreed. After a 2-month break, I thought it would help her get back to the rhythm of waking up early, working on school stuff, eating at the proper time, and sleeping early. She can also work on the lessons she has difficulties in, particularly French. She’s doing well, but it’s always a bit tough to juggle several languages. We generally speak only English at home, Baby Girl speaks French at school but is also taking English and German classes, and the Husband and I speak in Filipino to each other at home.

I can’t believe the month of August is almost coming to an end! These past 2 months have been great. Baby Girl was off school and stayed at home. I tried to work less to spend as much time as possible with her. The Husband had a week off and we spent that together. Ahhhh … what fun that was! I simply cannot believe this is coming to an end! In a week, Baby Girl will be back to school and I’ll be back to working full-time. For this, we need to prepare ourselves accordingly, starting with new additions to our wardrobe. This post is for me, a selection of plus-size items, and the next post will be for Baby Girl.

I finally got the perfume I had my eyes on for the longest time. Yay, happiness! I was going back and forth for a while because I’ve also been eyeing another one, but I finally bought it. The other one will be for the summer. Hihihi 🤭🤭 Plus, there was an ongoing sale, Les French Days, and I got 30% off. Perfection.

Choosing the Communion Dress (First Communion Series #4)

It’s another day which means it’s another day closer to Communion Day.
Lately, it feels like my mind has been taken over by the communion and that’s all I can think about. I am really super excited for Baby Girl. Plus, she is the only child that we have and will probably only have, so this is our first and last time to ever prepare for this day. Nothing can stop me at this point. 😆😆

Anyways …
