Review: Dead Sea Mud Acne Removal Mask Set


What better way to welcome the new year than a "proper" blog review post.  It's been awhile since I posted a decent review, so I decided to do one at the start of the year (thinking it might actually make me do it regularly for the rest of the year)  

I Am Born Kids Apparel x Bebe Bottom


If you've been following me on instagram, you'd know that I am cloth diaper user and a fan of unique prints.  Ever since I was pregnant, I have been researching the what nots and slowly creating a stash for Avery.

When she was about 7 months,  my CD buying and hoarding got out of hand (I literally spend more on cloth diapers, than my own clothes) and so I thought of creating my own diapers.  I though it'd be cool because I'd get to design all of Avery's diapers and I could also sell some under I Am Born Kids Apparel.  After months of research and learning and sourcing out the materials, I finally gave in.  I may have the skills to design and layout them, but I definitely do not have the skill (and time) to sew/make them.  I know I could've just hired someone to make them, but then I think it would lose that "love" and "personal" touch that you get when you order from work at home moms (WAHM)

A few weeks back, I found out about FabrikaMNL. They were the biggest answer to my prayers! FabrikaMNL is custom fabric printing online shop that prints on ready cloth diaper cuts fabric.  So I had a layout printed and I sent it one of my favorite WAHM's, Mommy Mel of Bebe Bottom.

While talking to Mommy Mel about custom printed fabrics and having them sewn etc. nauwi kami to talking about having a collaboration.  I put up my designs and sell them and she sews them!  And now, all my ideas and layouts/designs won't go to waste!

Our collab prints are now uploaded in the Bebe Bottom group.  Here's a peak to the collection:




I will also be uploading some other IAB Kids Apparel exclusive designs and layouts which you can order and  may be shipped to you or a WAHM of your choice. :)

Haayyyy... Have I known about FabrikaMNL and that this set up will actually work, I would've released the prints a long time ago. Hihi! Oh well! It's never too late.

Join the group today or Like I Am Born Kids Apparel on facebook to join the first batch of prints on January!

Reading

I just bought the whole Pottermore edition of all the Harry Potter Books plus special edition books (Pottermore Presents, Fantastic Beasts, etc.) So, yeah... I'm reading and re-reading them. Bits and pieces from each book, but really focusing on Fantastic Beasts (preparing for the movie release hihi)

Writing

My comments and recommendations for this company where I'm doing freelance HR consultancy services at the moment.  My head hurts and my progress is slower than I expected, I swear. I haven't been working in the HR industry for more than 3 years. Kalawang na lola mo. 

PS. Tomorrow is my deadline for all my progress reports. -_-


Listening

Barking dogs all over the village -_- and Avery reacting to funny scenes in Toy Story

Smelling

My sisters shampoo. Too strong it hurts my nose.

Wishing

I could finish the last phase of the consultancy work I'm doing. I need cash. Hoho.  Also wishing this headache would leave me right now. 

Hoping

For a better week ahead.  Last week has been very toxic and tiring for me and Ren.  I just hope we have more time to laugh and talk this week. Adulting and Parenting is so hard, rewarding, but hard.


Thinking
Thinking about a few things actually: (1) Like how I saw someone I know showing interest in one my friends when she's actually dating another friend already. Labo sister! (2) Thinking of new designs for Mainline Clothing's 2017 release (3) Most importantly, I'm thinking: "How long does my Jollibee delivery take to get here? I'm PG already!

Wearing
A worn out shirt and yelllow Beavis and Butthead boxers.

Loving

These new pictures I took with Irie.  Irie's the son of my bestfriend, Ferrai.  Irie never takes a picture with me because I have this love-hate relationship with him (and his Ate) Hihi! I always (intentionally) make them cry for fun and then make lambing when he's crying already.  Last night though, he didn't cry and he actually played with me! 

Wanting
To finish a lot of things that has been in my checklist for ages.  I have been so busy with so many things that my backlogs started piling up. It actually pains me to see my checklist. So much things I want to finish!

Needing
An eyebrow thread. Need. Badly.

Feeling
Hungover. I am no longer friends with alcohol. #TitasofManila #LolaMode

I've just recently realized that the 4 Hogwarts houses (Gryffindor, Slytheirn, Ravenclaw & Hufflepuff) may be a perfect representation of one's life or stage in life.
