Luckily, Manila Workshops came up with yet another great seminar for us parents to start training our toddlers. They even match the Potty Training seminar with Toddler Discipline which is of utmost importance for us parents to teach our little ones at an early age.
Toddler Discipline skills will come in handy now that our little ones are learning independence, curiosity, and a sense of adventure. Enzo has a handful of those characteristics and at times he throws in his tantrums and hits on us. It can be very difficult at times, and I would often find myself thinking of ways on how I could lessen his temper whenever we try to discipline him.
If you parents out there feel the same, then this workshop is right for all of us! To register just go to http://manilaworkshops.com/events/toddler-discipline-and-potty-training and please don't forget to key in my referral code: TYJ PPTD1

The first part of having young looking skin is to maintain clear and clean skin. To do this you need to discipline yourself in this routine. Cleansing will help your skin be free from dirt that can cause further skin problems. Toners can help in rempving residual dirt on the skin and shrink pores. It also preps the skin for moisturizers. Moisturizing the skin rehydrates it making your skin look younger. The more hydrated the skin the more softer it becomes preventing age marks or wrinkles.
Though I generally have clear skin, I get some pimples appear during my red days. I get frustrates with it because it usually appears on my nose and forehead. In times like these, you should have on hand pimple fighting products that work for you. There are cleansers that are made specifically for pimple fighting so you may use that as replacement to your mild cleansers. Don't ever prick your pimples as it may leave black marks after.
Being exposed to UV rays make the skin age faster. Even if you stay indoors most of the time it still has an effect on the skin, so put sunblock to help your skin from the harmful effects of the sun.
Clear and young looking skin radiates from within so keeping a healthy and clean body will definitely reflect on the skin. If you want to have a young looking skin, taking vitamins will definitely do your skin good.
One of the things, I wished I did earlier in my age is to consult skin experts. I often self medicate myself before which lead to a burnt skin in my grade school years. Now, I learned an important lesson on getting advises from dermatologists and getting treatments that are suited for my skin. Getting a skin consultation even if you have clear skin can help you to understand your skin better. I know most people are intimidated to go for skin consultations so I am offering all my readers FREE consultation (except for pathological cases) from Skin Philosophie Medical Aesthetic and Lifestyle Solutions.

Two weeks after my birthday and everything is going fast... too fast actually. My masters class have officially begun which means readings and a lot of them plus critique paper every week. My teaching classes, on the other hand, will start their immersion this week which means I have to prep them and get them conditioned to serve the community. As a family, we are on our first full week of condo living and there has been a lot of adjustments too.
Been busy right? But I am not complaining and I'd like to share with you inspiring quotes that help me live by and stay positive. Hope you get inspired too!:)
I learned to know what I want and get it. Nothing is too late and noone is too old for anything. See I am getting my masters just now that I am 30 but education knows no number.
You know you grow wiser when you want everyone to excel. When you do not feel inferior or superior to anyone. It means you already have established a person you want and love.
It is in recognizing that we lack or need something that we accept that ther is work to be done. Getting what you want starts with knowinh exactly what you want. Be specific with goals so your actions would be specific too.
Too much energy is wasted minding people who hurts, annoys, or angers us. Focus on what is positive and you will attract positivity as well. Be angry or annoyed and it will follow.
Friendship now at my age is not only about being physically present at all times. Priorities have changed and there are times that we really cannot be with our friends. But this does not make you a bad friend, there is more to friendship than just texting, chatting.
Make yourself useful to others. We are confronted with too much individuality that we sometimes stray away from a sense of community. Be responsible for others and do what you can to help them. Start with your family, with friends, with people who are near us, be a helping hand.
Lastly, the Pope has taught me a lot but I love this one. When we dream we love and when we love we dream.
Do you have other quotes you live by? Share them with me, I'd be happy to know about them.

You’ve got to love the aroma of coffee, especially in the morning and in the afternoon, when it’s just about siesta time. Lotus Biscoff, Europe’s Favorite Biscuit with Coffee, has finally arrived in the country, and it is going to elevate your coffee experience to a whole new delicious level.
Hosted by Daphne-Osena Paez, the launch was held at the posh Society Lounge in Makati, transformed into a luxurious red airport lounge. Guests with their boarding passes cued in airport terminals for check-in. Attendants, clad in designer Pia Gladys Perey, greeted them upon arrival. A truly first class experience, overflowing coffee was served by Allegro Beverage Corporation upon seating and dishes were carefully prepared by Chef Patrice Freuslon. As the program started, everyone was just about excited as Fly Ace Corporation President Jun Cochanco and Lotus Bakeries International Distributors General Manager Bart Bauwens who shared how the partnership started and their plans for Lotus Biscoff in the country.
A highlight of the event is the Biscoff Creations of Tiny Kitchen’s Vicky Veloso-Barrera. Her interpretation of the Lotus Biscoff biscuits and spreads include Mini Biscoff Cinnamon Rolls, soft bread glazed with Lotus Biscoff spread and topped with toasted almonds. Mini Biscoff Cupcakes is a perfect recipe for first-time cupcake bakers as its main ingredient is a simple dollop of Lotus Biscoff Spread Crunchy and Biscoff crumbs. Another creation is the Crazy Biscoff Parfait, a lavish dessert of sponge cake, mascarpone, and Lotus Biscoff Spread Smooth
Discover Lotus Biscoff for yourself. Take a bite of the deliciously crunchy Lotus Biscoff caramelized biscuit with your next cup of hot coffee. Since 1932, this Belgian specialty has been Europe’s coffee break favorite. From its humble beginnings as a small bakery in the Belgium town of Lembeke, the Boone brothers packed their biscuits and delivered around the neighborhood. Eight decades later and the recipe still remain. It was in the 1950s when Lotus introduced pairing these biscuits with coffee, which then became a routine in Belgian hotels, restaurants, and coffee shops. And then, in 1985, Europe’s favorite biscuit with coffee became America’s favorite biscuit with air travel. Lotus introduced Biscoff as an in-flight treat through the exhausting long flights. It became a welcome mid-flight break that reminded fliers of the comforts of home and helped them relax. Lotus is still offered in Delta Air Lines (US), Brussels Airlines (Belgium), Middle East Airlines (Lebanon) and El Al (Israel).
The unique taste of Lotus Biscoff comes from the sugar’s caramelization during the baking process. A hint of cinnamon and other spices add that special twist. If these crunchy biscuits do not satisfy your craving, then you wouldn’t be able to resist Lotus Biscoff spread. The sweet, creamy, European spread is an alternative to nut butters and chocolate spreads. It is the only spread made with original Biscoff cookies. Have it straight from the jar, lather it on toast, mix it with fruit slices, or add it as a secret ingredient to your favorite recipes. Both the cookies and the spread are made with no artificial color or preservatives, 0 grams trans-fat per serving and zero cholesterol. It has no nuts and is completely non-GMO. Lotus Biscoff biscuits and spreads are just the perfect treat for the timeout that you deserve.
Fly Ace Corporation Product Manager Emie San Beda invited everyone to discover Lotus Biscoff, “Filipinos love coffee and we can see this in the variety of artisanal and commercial coffee shops. We love sharing this experience with friends and family, talking over sips of coffee and a bite of Lotus Biscoff will surely make it even more memorable.” Just as its European counterpart, Lotus Biscoff will be doing massive sampling in coffee shops all over the country, as well as in premium lifestyle events were coffee is enjoyed.

It has been a week after my 30th birthday, and I still could not get over the fun surprises my hubby and some friends did for me. Thanks again everyone you all made me feel very special.
The blessings started pouring, Wednesday, the 28th where from masters school I decided to treat myself to my favorite burrito near, Gregory Park Serious Grub.
What took me by surprise was that the people from Gregory Park recognized me from this blog. That was sooooo cooooollll! I have never been recognized for a blogpost I did before. The best part was that they did not let me pay for my take outs! That was really something, and I was estatic. I wrote the food review just because I love their food and it was noticed. Feeling serious blogger na talaga ako. :)
29th of January.
I attended Manulife's Bundle of Joy and got Enzo free life insurance worth 100k for one year. Click here to know how you can get yours. I also got to seen Delamar in person. #girlcrush And met new blogger friends as well. I got to meet Lhyzie Bongon who I just read online. Cool right? Visit her blog here too:
The food served was also delicious. It was from Chef Jessie who cooked for Pope Francis. It was heaven and I'd bet Pope Francis enjoyed his meals too.
Last but not the least, I won the raffle and got GCs too!:) Thanks to Manulife for the GCs I got to buy myself an induction cooker!
Then in the evening I attendef my first ever Zomato foodie meet up at Wild Ginger where I met the awesome people of Zomato and other bloggers too.
I enjoyed the food and the company as well. Will post a review soon and please get Zomato and start discovering the best places to eat out!:)
Then the 30th day came, and though I had to teach for 6hours, it was still an amazing day. I was expecting that my hubby and I with little Enzo will just have a quiet dinner but I did not know I was in for a big surprise.
Excuse the #birthdayselfie, hubby made me wait for awhile at our house so might as well prettify, right? Okay, so as soon as they arrived I was already complaining that I wanted to eat already. So hubby and I rode the orange jeep and was expecting to go to Harbour square which was near to us. But we got off at Sev's Cafe and I was told it was cinema night. I got a little hunch as it was dark and there were no people around. Then everyone came out with a cake singing happy birthday to me. My family, relatives, colleagues, and friends were there. I was the happiest, most special, beautiful lady of the night. I could not be happier.
The surprise did not stop as they played a video of my throwback pictures. The BEST surprise were Kontra Tiempo and Benny Bunny Band. Been raving about them for months now, and I could not believe my hubby convinced them to play for my birthday. What's even more amazing was they agreed to play for me for the night. It was just amazing.
Treats from Benny Bunny Band, #perksofafangirl. An important milestone in my life happened in the company of people I love and admire. I am overwhelmed by the outpour of love I was given and I am to always do the same for them. 30 is just a number and I am looking forward to more adventures, surprises, and experience with my loved ones.
