Battling Head Lice - The Struggle and then LiceAliz

October 7, 2017

When Kuto (Head Lice) strikes, it is always an itchy situation. I have been dealing with this taboo issue from since way back my childhood and up to now that I am already a mom, it has not escaped my life!

Head Lice infestation is a tragic moment in a woman or a girl's life. Mostly if you are in your teens, right? Not only does it cause discomfort, it bothers you most of the time that you want to burn all the hair in your head! Along with all the lice and lice eggs in it.


Just lately, I was very much enjoying my life lice-free until Adi started to attend Kindergarten. The lice story has unfolded another chapter in our home and in our family! It infested me, Adi, and my one-year-old daughter Ami! Oh, Em Gee!!

A lot of things happened recently that I already failed to update this blog. There are times when I just wanted to let things go and happen and then leave them all that way. But no, a blogger like me will always be a blogger.

As much as I want to keep things and photos to myself, there is that itch inside me that desires to share it with my readers. Well, I know I haven't really got to know my readers on a personal level but I know my blog stats tell that there are actual people with heartbeats who really take their time to read this blog. I hope I have given you the insight that you need while you're here reading and dropping by just to see any little updates on my not so crazy life. Thank you.


Just recently, I was invited to attend this year's ExpoMom. The first time I heard of it was last Expo Mom event last 2014, while I was attending an event around the same floor in Ayala Center Cebu.








A few months after giving birth to her first child Alex five years ago, Trixie Ortiz-Renggli found herself looking for an exercise routine which she could do at home as she was breastfeeding, which wouldn’t require any complicated equipment as she probably wouldn’t know how to use it, and which would be kind to a mom who just had a C-Section. By pure chance or maybe divine intervention, Jenifer Martinez invited Trixie to do yoga in a small yoga studio called Shanti Shala ❤️ Yoga gave Trixie and Jen the opportunity to reconnect with each other, letting them form their very own #TeamMom! Read their inspiring story at http://mommymundo.com/teammom-yogi-mommas/ and see them at #ExpoMomCebu this Saturday at Ayala Center Cebu! ๐Ÿ˜ #mommymundo #mompowerment #mmcommunity #expomom #teammom #expomom2017

My 2017 Goals

January 31, 2017


Last year, I wasn't really able to make some posts for my year 2016. A year has passed, and I could really say that I have gone tougher and stronger.



With 2016 a very trying time for me as a mom and as a wife - a homemaker to a small starting and growing family was like diving into deep water without having to know how to swim. That was how my 2016 last year started.


Those trying moments, I held on to my mom my dad and also my husband. I could not make it alive without them seriously!


I looked up to the sky too! Thinking what the hell have I gone myself into? It was a drastic moment, so this year if ever I will be given the chance, I would like to make small adjustments to my goals and strokes for motivations. I commit myself to growing more cautious on the food that I eat things that I prepare for my kids and family. This year, I commit to a healthy lifestyle most especially that my husband has been recently diagnosed with hypertension. One that is at the verge already so I am practically looking for ways to motivate him too for lifestyle changes. Hopefully, he gets  the drill and then lower his chances of other diseases accompanied by it.

Also this year, our country, the Philippines hosted the ever beautiful Miss Universe and Miss France, Iris Mittinaere won! Yay! She was my bet. Here is some of the quotes from Miss Australia who also happens to have the same definition for success as mine. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜



The first month of 2017 is a very trying time again for us. It's like the things that happened from last year has some small aftershocks on this month to us. 

But hopefully, with the loving grace of God, we can still make it. One thing that I want to focus also for this year aside from health is to focus more on moving. Going around some more with the kids and spending moments with them more. Maybe by February we can do that? Who knows. 

There are a lot of things that I want to achieve this year aside from living a healthy lifestyle, I would liek to switch my travel mode on and spend some time with my kids outdoors. Also, in the plans are growing this blog of mine. It's been 8 years but I still have not reached my goal for this blog so I commit to that this year.

How about you? What are your goals for this year of the Fire Rooster?

Let me know in the comments below.

Stay fab!

What 2016 has taught me

January 1, 2017





2016 has finally come to an end and as far as I can remember it was a year full of challenges and battles won. I never imagined how transformed I am now because of the choices I made in 2015. And that is to be a full-time mother. Leaving my day job and learning to focus on my top priority for life is one of the toughest decisions of my life. Although I am a mom to Adi I never realized how demanding it was to be a mom of two expecting to do all things on my own. But, to be honest, no words can explain what I went through. 




I learned to manage my time well and focused on the important things in life like preparing the meals and even to organizing the toys. Washing the laundry and breastfeeding Ami was the hardest of all. Without my parents' assistance and support I wouldn't have done it all. 

The fruit of my labor. My kids and my small family. I learned that I cannot anymore go out on my own. I cannot anymore manage to go out of the house and run errands without somebody else's company or without my kids. I have become so attached to them that it seems they are already a part of my whole being.

I learned that when I decided to become a full time mom to them I have also decided to bid farewell to my old self. I learned to become more selfless. On the first 3 months of adjustment, I remember I was afraid to go out of the house to call Adi to come home because I was shy, I was afraid that I couldn't discipline him the right way. My parents would always scold me because I was not performing my duty. Of course, I was still preparing my mind that this is how it is going to be now. That I need to step up and be the mother that I am. 


A year has passed, and I pat myself on my back because I have raised Ami by myself. Disciplined Adi by myself- he listens to me now whenever I scold him for doing something wrong. A year has passed with me purely breastfeeding Ami, learned to bathe her on my own two hands, clean her poop with my own hands. But whenever I feel like I need help I'm just forever grateful I got two able beings around me. My parents! Thank you Nay and Tay for shopping our food in the market whenever I feel so dizzy to go out. 

Indeed 2016 was a life changing year for me. So many lessons learned and so many memories kept in my kind and heart forever. Thank you 2016 for a meaningful year. For teaching and empowering my nature as a mom and a homemaker. 

I look forward to 2017 with head up high.

Happy New Year to us all!
Stay fab!
