Your Beauty Needs from

What is timing when BeautyMNL handpicked me to site a test run, because I'm trying to find a good facial cleanser for my ever sensitive skin! This Momma needs to stay fab, too. Hehe! ;P There are a lot of beauty products on their site, from makeup, skin care, hair care, beauty tools, and there are kid-friendly items too VMV HypoallergenicsMild and Gentle Baby Shampoo from Zen Nutrients and Happy Face, Happy Body: Milk Wash!

Now let me share with you my BeautyMNL Haul!

I got the Softening and Lightening Almond Toner (3) since I saw it on the best seller section, and I've read good reviews of so I thought why not try it!Apple Cider Vinegar Soap (5)because I have read and heard from people about the good benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar, especially to those who have problem skin. Also from Skin Genie, I chose Top of the Morning Coffee Scrub (4) as I've also read some good benefits of coffee to our skin, I've also watched some videos on Youtube, wherein youtubers make DI…

Toddlers, Books, and ABC's

We used to have a schedule for my little girl's learning, I let her watch some educational videos for babies everyday in the morning and right after her nap. But then I thought I don't want to force her to watch if she doesn't want to. And so I stopped with it.

So now, I made these awesome flash cards for her! Those are what I use to teach her her ABC's. And we also have books that we read every now and then. I don't force her to get a book and we'll have some reading time though. I already arranged her book bin so whenever she wanted to read or rather look at the pages, she could easily do so.

So I arranged Maco's bin like that so she could see the books easily and choose what she wants to 'read' or rather 'look at' hehe 😉 Also planning to paint it white! Hmmm A photo posted by Coi Contreras Ibanez (@coifishh) on Jul 19, 2016 at 6:46pm PDT

Lately though I noticed that the little girl always get her pouch of flash cards and always tell me &…

Food Review: Kan Zhu Hand-Pulled Noodles, SM Hypermarket Pasig City

A couple of months ago, yes months, we had our little munchkin's check up while my MIL went grocery shopping. We met up with her after Maco's check up. I personally love the SM Hypermarket at Pasig, the one right across Tiendesitas! Just because their supermarket have clothing inside, and even furniture.

So after she was done grocery shopping, we ate at Kan Zhu. I thought it was the same with Zhu Kitchen, but apparently it wasn't.

I personally liked their interiors. Simple and clean.
 It's noodles and beef were really soft and tender. And the sauce was really savory.
This was my husband's order. He didn't like it that much. As what my husband told me, he didn't like it because the seafood weren't fresh. The soup was nice, it was just the seafood.
This was new to their menu and it was my MIL's order. She didn't like it as much as well. I tasted a little of it, I think it was good but not as good as my order. Hehe! This tasted like Carbonara. It …

Our Kidzoona Experience

Okay so I didn't realize I haven't posted about our "Kidzoona experience" which happened last July until now! This post has been sitting on my drafts since then! Sorry! 
I've been hearing and seeing about Kidzoona for a couple of months already and since then I wanted to go in one of their branches already! I originally wanted to go to their Robinsons Galleria branch because as I saw from the other mommy bloggers how huge it was! But when I found out that their Uptown Mall branch was open already, yaassss!!

So yeah, for our 2nd wedding anniversary, we went to Kidzoona! It was also our first time to go to Uptown Mall, and most shops weren't open yet. Love it! Though most of the restaurants were open already, and there were a LOT. And I thought it was great so it wouldn't be a hassle for us to dine right after we played at Kidzoona. When we went to Kidzoona, we noticed that it was not that big compared to their Robinsons Galleria branch. Or maybe there were…

What to Look for in Wood Furniture

I've always been fascinated with wood furniture. But unfortunately, even though it looks so good, not most of the wood furniture that are around now aren't termite-free or if I may say, doesn't last long enough.

One of the woods they use in making such sturdy furniture are from Teak Tree. Now what is Teak? Teak tree or "tectona grandis" is one of the tropical hardwood birches. It's longevity is great and the tree often lives up to 100 years of age. Teak trees have oil in it's heart that is water resistant. The oil itself can protect the tree from decay, insects, and bacteria.

Now, let me share with you what are the qualities you must find for the perfect natural wood furniture that lasts long, weatherproof, and termite-free, and are from Linden Teak Furniture Philippines.
