A space for all my kikay shizz: Rookie Mommy PH Youtube Channel!

May 25, 2016
Hiya, Rookie Moms! (and lippie junkies!)

I finally decided to make my own personal Youtube channel where I can host all of my beauty reviews. I've been really addicted to foundations and lippies and I've been panic buying for about a month now. 

I swear to God, I don't want to compute on how much I've spent already on my incoming lippies. *giggles

So, basically, I'm no beauty blogger. Maybe a lippie vlogger? I'll mostly be making reviews and swatches of my lippies on my Youtube channel. Maybe host some giveaway as well for you hot mommas. 

The thing is, Arya is growing really fast and I barely able to catch-up on her milestones and doesn't even have the time to write about it. If yo'll notice though, my IG is so updated with our selfies. So, aside from talking about my daughter and motherhood in general, I decided to add doing vlogs - for my lippies.

I've actually uploaded two videos now. 1 is my vlog review of Pink Sugar's Sugar Tint Lip and Cheek Tint in Queen Bee shade and second came from a vlog request from IG about Menow Kissproof shade #6 and #12. Honestly, i looove doing vlogs! It's super easy! I just babble and babble. I have to admit though that my phone camera sucks  plus my video editing skill is very limited but I'll have that solved by the next month. *wink *wink





So, if you're a regular reader here. Please please subscribe to my new Youtube channel below:


I'm overly excited for my next vlogs reviews for Colourpop lippies and Kylie Lip Kits and Glosses, Metals. Yahooo!

Hope you'll support me on my new craziness!

Tough Mothers Self-Defense

May 14, 2016

I recently got invited to join and participate to PBDionisio & Co's #ToughMothers Urban Survival event this coming May 22, 2016.

It's a self-defense class for mothers, daughters, and the men of their lives.

Fee: P1,850.00
Included in package:
Krav Maga Self-Defense against guns and knives - 11:00 am to 12:00 pm
Filipino Lunch with drink - 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
Practical Shooting with a pistol (50 rds + 1 target board) - 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

At first, I thought, this is a bit extreme for me. But then, I was looking for something different to do. Like a distraction from all the things I've been worrying about. Coz seriously, I tried going back to Yoga to make myself at peace but it bothered me more. As if being at peace adds more stress to me. I'm not used to not thinking or worrying about something.

So, this morning, I decided to finally sign-up. I don't now where the place is so I'll just probably rely on Google Maps or Grab or Uber. *Giggles

I have not been physically active for about a year now, don't know anything about Krav Maga or shooting guns. So, good luck to me on Sunday!

But hey, if you're interested, leave a comment below and let's be buddies on the event.

Hope to see you there!

Give Your Family’s Queen a Majestic Experience

May 4, 2016


Nothing compares to the love of a mother.

Since you were born, being up late nights have been part of her routine – from feeding you towaiting for you to come home from school or work. She’s up early in the morning to help you prepare for your day. She works or stays at home to provide care for everyone. She’s
conquered all these challenges of motherhood because of pure love.

But her focus on your well-being makes it easy to forget hers. She prioritizes your needs all the time, making it harder to find time to take care of her own needs. Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show how much you appreciate and love her.

She deserves to feel good about herself. Take time to spend a great day with her. How about a lavish bonding moment over an authentic Imperial Korean Facial at The Clinic by Lisa?



The experience is sure to be special since it’s not your typical facial treatment – it involves more than just cleaning. After cleansing, one each of soft and modeling mask pack are applied on the face. To further the glowing and radiant skin, anti-aging and lightening serums are infused to the skin through a process called Cryoelectroporation (utilizes cold to penetrate the skin).

But what actually sets it apart: it includes an authentic Korean Massage (a kind of lymphatic massage) for the face, neck, and shoulders. The massage believes to aid in toning the facial muscles, tightening lose skin, brightening complexion, and even helps contour the face. Because it goes beyond the face, the procedure also includes an arm and leg massage – you don’t only look good but you feel better.

That’s already a long list of steps but it doesn’t end there. It wouldn’t be labeled imperial if you’re not getting more. You’ll also get a back massage and RF Treatment for the back (helps relieve pain and provide relaxation) and the abdomen (aid in slimming the tummy and skin tightening).

Right after the treatment, you could do a lot more activities with mom. Because it’s finished with LED light that helps further rejuvenate and heal the skin, marks from the deep cleaning wouldn’t be noticeable.



For the entire month of May, The Clinic by Lisa is offering the Imperial Facial Treatment at Buy 1, Take 1 (The clinic’s gift and way to thank every mom). You just need to book and paying advance. The Clinic by Lisa is located at 211 Skyway Twin Towers, Capt. Henry Javier St., Oranbo, Pasig City. 

I just recently discovered The Clinic by Lisa through a friend and I am very much excited and looking forward for my facial booking. I myself loves getting facials so I am not letting this one pass. I'll make sure to write a review on my facial experience for you soon. :)

For more information, you may visit theclinicbylisa.ph or follow them on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/thekoreanbeautyexpert/) and Instagram (@the_clinic_by_lisa).

Rookie Mommy PH is joining BLOGAPALOOZA 2016!

May 3, 2016

Time flies really fast! It's been a year already and it seemed like my first ever Blogapalooza was just yesterday.

I can still remember the event clearly and although I had some disappointments on my first Blogapalooza invite, I still decided to sign-up for this year. One good reason is that they promised it to be better this year. So, I have high hopes for the Blogapalooza 2016 team!


Another reason is that they are having the event relatively close to my home versus last year. So, yeah. I have to go. :)


I hope to see the other bloggers I've met before and hoping to meet other influencers as well. Really looking forward for this year's Blogapalooza.

Lookie! I got the confirmation invite already!


May 14, 2016

I can't go :(( I have to opt not to go because I have to watch for my little girl. I guess I'll just be watching over Facebook and Instagram feed. :(

See you there, fellow bloggers!

I joined the Thank-A-Mom Movement at Century City Mall

May 2, 2016

How do we surprise her? We simply write letters!

My sister is an animator so she scribbled and doodled on our letters too. Look how pretty and happy my mom is! Framing your letters is a great idea especially if your moms wants it displayed on the house. So she could brag about it. Hihi

This Mother's Day, why don’t we go back to our roots and starts writing letters to our moms? You might even win her goodies just by simply writing her your sweetest message!

CenturyCity Mall recognizes the joy of writing and receiving letters. So this year as we celebrate Mother's Day, they decided to have a Thank-A-Mom Movement! Yaaay!
