7 Home and Lifestyle Pieces We Love from Design Story

Form and function are two things that should but don’t always go together so it’s a treat every time I come across furniture and home accessories that celebrate both. There’s something so attractive and interesting when a piece is so useful and yet can be classified...

DIY Chalkboard and Craft Organizer

Our house is mostly filled with arts and crafts supplies, paper of various kinds, books, food (chocolates!) and Riley’s toys. As much as these are all fun and tasty, it can be a bit overwhelming at times. I also happen to have moments where my OC-ness kicks in and I...

Thoughtful Presents and Valentine’s Day

They say that presents are a two-way street. They’re an experience for both giver and receiver. As much as receiving them sounds fun, giving them is just as much if not more. But more than the item itself, it’s the thought that counts. Or the effort. I know this...

9 Books for Kids & Kids at Heart from the MIBF

I wasn't really planning to create a post about Manila International Book Fair (MIBF).  To boot, I didn't bring my camera as I usually would. I didn't have planned shots in my mind. I didn't brief my family that I will be covering the event. *Woops. Now you know what...

La Union Family Roadtrip

I've been debating with myself whether I should blog or not. After all, I've pretty much documented on video a good chunk of our roadtrip to La Union. 🙂 Then again, I realized, I have so many thoughts as usual that I can't express through moving pictures. 😀 I'm...
