My Baby is Sick...

Hello beauties! Time isn't on my side these past days.. I am swamped with mommy stuff. I had to sacrifice my ME time and this (blogging) is a part of it. My 4-year old is down with the flu since Sunday. He's much better now but still with a terrible cough. Could've been just me instead of him. I tell you it's hard when the little one is sick... my world is in chaos! Medicine time is a battlecry not to mention feeding time!!..just a mere drink of water takes a lot of prodding and convincing which sometimes leads to threatening (that's when I become a MOmster). I figure it's better that way than see my kid in the hospital with I.V stuck in his arm or foot or wherever there's a vain to prick. Kids have less visible veins than adults, which makes it more painful...ouch!!! wawa.... I think that's the worst ever---the nurse doing it the wrong way only to find it has to be pulled out stick it in all over again!!! whaaaaat????

Kids getting sick makes me worry. It gives me sleepless nights too. I turn on my alarm and wake up every so often to check on him. I know of someone who slept through the night not knowing her child's temperature shoot up and had a convulsion, poor kid..brain got affected. That really taught me a lesson..never to sleep soundly when your kid is sick with's dangerous!

Thank God he's better now. What I have to do now is feed him good food so he'll regain the weight he has poor baby.

Wait a minute...I remember paying for an ELF studio angled face brush yesterday...amidst all the crying and vomiting...hihi *wink* (my bad?) its was the last piece, I heard it's nice and soft....
C'mon, i just had to!!! LOL!

That's the true essence of being a kikay Mom! ^-^

'Til next...

Rest in Peace MJ

After watching all the (life) stories on Michael Jackson these past week/s, I somehow feel relieved that he has finally found the peace that seemed to elude him all his life. He can now be the child that he was never allowed to be, he can be the person he wants to be and not someone who has to always conform to the norm. He can now just be Michael and in the company of our CREATOR...... REST IN PEACE MJ!

My Natural Cleansing Staples

These dynamic duo are my facial cleansing staples. At first I was skeptical about Human Heart Nature products simply because I find it so cheap. You know sometimes you have this notion that if something is cheap quality rating is somewhere down the bottom, specially locally-made (Philippines) ones. But Human Heart Nature proved that wrong! Big time!

I have road tested a number of their products and these two emerged as my winners.

Human Heart Nature Says:

Calendula & Seaweed Facial Wash keeps your face clean and fresh with seaweeds to unclog pores and calendula to calm and regenerate skin. With natural sun protection, this facial wash is best for normal, combination, and sensitive skin.

Ingredients: calendula gel, seaweed gel, vegetable glycerin, seaweed distillate, and natural Vitamin E

- it rinses off easily but it's not drying
- love the clean, fresh scent (smells organic..teehee)
- it's really super cheap--99.75PhP for 100ml tube
- used to be somewhat runny in consistency but I guess they were able to fix that

Human Heart Nature Says:

Tomato & Mandarin Organic Toner When alcohol-based toners sting your face it's because they are drying out our skin which leads to premature aging. Now you can remove stubborn grime without the aging side-effects. Re-mineralizing tomatoes are packed with Vitamin C that penetrates skin to remove dead skin cells and unclog blocked pores.

Ingredients: purified water, epsom salt, vegetable glycerin, tomato extract, calendula extract, mandarin fragrance oil.

- I love how it leaves my skin sooo clean but NEVER dry and tight
- I accidentally swiped some on the corner of my lips, I licked it, guess what?.... taste like water!No wonder it doesn't sting.
- Once again, its dirt cheap, 89.75PhP for a 100ml bottle
- LOVE the orangey scent!!

There's nothing I dont' like about these products. For me these are the best first 2 steps in a cleansing regimen (you know--1.cleansing, 2. toning, 3. moisturizing). The ingredients are mild and it won't clash with whatever moisturizer you're going to works with my moisturizer, but then again that would be another entry. LOL!

Hey, hope it works for you also =)

'Til next...
