I love bite size food and really loved it when desserts come in mini size. I just love the thought of being able to take a bite and savoring it, without the guilt of not finishing it when the portions are too big. They say the best bite is the first one. I first discovered […]

What I look forward to in September is the renewed attitude towards goals. Maybe it’s just me, but September marks a new beginning whether new routines, new outlook on things or new school year when I was younger. However, we are having a delayed heat wave here in SoCal. We are currently in the hottest […]

{home décor} photo magnets

I love to take pictures and for years, all those pictures just stayed in my computer hard drive. How sad is that? Now, I find ways to be creative in displaying pictures all over the house, besides, you know, the typical picture frame. I’m starting to collect photo magnets using my instagram pictures. I order […]

August wrapped up most of our summer activities. We did one last hurrah of back-to-back pool party during this past Labor Day weekend, but after that, we are getting ready to say goodbye to summer. I must say, I forgot how hot it can be during the summer days in our new neighborhood. This is […]

I loved documenting my life (hello blog!) and what prevents me from doing it more often is the time it takes to do it. I’m always finding ways to do a shortcut, but I want to do shortcuts only if I also love the end results. This post was inspired by a post I saw […]

As a new mom, my philosophy on fitness has changed, it is much less about a workout, and  much more about a  lifestyle. I want to feel strong and feeling good, and more importantly, I want to have fun no matter where I am. It took awhile to get to this place and I appreciate […]

IMG_9518.jpg

I get a lot of comments that my little man is a good eater. We are now on our second day care facility and both teachers from the schools have told me that he is a good eater.  I’m lucky that he eats everything I give him, he pretty much eats the same food that […]
