SUMMER : FAM BAM x Sun kissed = SUPER TAN!

After weeks of being a lazy home buddy, 
finally got the nerve to blog. haha. 
How's your summer going?
I just realized mine wasn't that boring after all.
It's a food-filled summer! LOL.

My lil kiddo turned three last 9th of April.
Weee.. He's a big kid now! 
Thank you Lord for the gift of life. :')

We had a double celebration because my big bro's
lil princess also turned two. 
Our babies are growing fast. Hihi.
My brother and his family made it home
here to celebrate it with us.
It's because they're based at Ipil, 
Zamboanga Sibugay.
I'm glad they find time to come home again.
So we're one happy and complete family
once again. 

Unfortunately, I can't show you photos 
during the said birthday celebration.
I transferred the pictures in my lappy, and my
lappy is out for vacation. LOL.
It's with mom. She's currently out of town.
Mom's making me envy again. She's always traveling.. T__T

But anyways, I have photos here with me
about our escapade after the birthday party.
BEACH baby!
Basilan is blessed with
breathtaking natural resources and spots. 
Simple yet elegant in its own way.
I could vouch to that. 
Feed your sight with these random 
shots around Basilan.
Just a short tour.
I hope these wont bore you. :)

A small falls just located near the road.
 Road trippin'..

Brother with my kiddo

Bro's GF with D.

Fell inlove with this.
 Who love beaches more than we do? :D

The famous Malawi Island's white beach

My D's afraid of the water! haha
 Fuego Fuego

The next pictures are our beach 
outing with the family.
 The place is called Lampinigan Island.
A separate island but still goes 
along the Basilan border.
Quite far and no assurance 
of the place's safety.
It's a 20 to 30 minutes ride with a bangka.
I find the bangka not that convenient.
Walang atip! So we're exposed
under the heat in almost 30 minutes! Grrr.
But we love adventure! haha.
Though I got a KJ dad. lol.
We went to beach with the 
wrong beach attire.
We don't want to catch attention
so we dressed ordinarily.

Brother's wife with lil princess Chaela.

Lovin' this natural rock formation

Mom's epic shot. lol.
 I swear she got those water in her ears. haha,

Happy family

Brothers and sister.
 I was so busy enjoying
this white sand beach that's why I'm not 
in most of the pictures or any?  -__-

Mom with her friends

With all the sun exposures, 
I got toasted. haha.
Super tan!
Sun-kissed = summer!

And that's all for now.
Thanks for visiting! :)

Hello bloggers! Howdy? 
Been a busy mommeh lately so 
I haven't been updating my blog.
My blog looked so empty. LOL

Last week I got the chance to be with friends. 
And one of them do painting.
His favorite past time aside from drawing.
He is one good artist as for me. :)

Before he began, he cleaned his brushes first.
The way he did it give me a brilliant idea. 
I would clean my cute little make up brushes
just the way he did it.

And here's how it goes...

What we need:
1. anti-bacterial liquid soap (hand soap or dish washing soap)
-I think it is a must that the soap should be anti-bacterial
to thoroughly remove all makeup residues, body oils, dead skin and
dirt that make brush havens for bacteria which can cause breakouts.
2. olive oil
- Dish washing is soap is gonna strip the hair of its natural oil
and will dry out the hair. That's why we need this olive oil
to recondition the brushes.

We have to clean our brushes regularly
to prevent breakouts.
As much as possible, we should 
sanitize/disinfect them daily.

I've been at home like a month now 
so I haven't been painting my face. LOL.
I just got my uncleaned brushes (because I cleaned the 
rest right after I went home from laag with friends.hihi)

I bought this olive oil before summer
vacation came (before its time to go home).
Opted for this one rather than the extra
virgin olive oil. The extra virgin costs like almost
times two than the regular one and I'm on budget. HAHA.
I personally use this for my hair and sometimes, face.
The extra virgin olive oil is very good for the face. It's
a natural acne treatment. Go for natural!

We got a non antibac dish washing soap at home,
so I head out to the nearest store and bought this:

P5 lang! hehe. Settled for this then.

Moving on...

I got my dirty brushes and a white plate.
I included my mascara here because my mascara's brush is
so I-DONT-KNOW what na.

And on the process...
Mix the soap and olive oil on the plate.

 I poured small amount of soap and oil
because I got just these tiny brushes.

Then, dip your brush in it and stir in a circular motion.
And wipe them back and forth in your hands.
I didn't got the chance to take pictures of them
wiping on my hands because I'm using both of my hands. HAHA. (MALAMANG!)

Look at these.
See how the residues are off the brush.
Mascara brush.
Looked so EUWW..

There you go. After that, you just have to wash them.
Lukewarm water will do. But NOT hot water.
It will definitely gonna damage your brushes.
And then just wipe them dry with a regular towel.


Cleaned my brushes in an affordable way.
 And I had fun doing this. LOL.

Hope this post helped. 
Have a great Tuesday everyone! :)

Bounce and Play!

This one's a super late post. My blog's been idled for weeks. 
Finally got the will to write one. hehe.
This one's about my devilish lil angel. 
Yes, he's a devilish but one sweet lil angel.

He's a 3-year old grown kiddo. And he's the reason why 
I don't get myself to blog often.
Shall I say procrastination does. LOL.
My kiddo is quite a handful. 
So I should keep my eyes on him often. 
Nanny's off (sigh) during summer since
 we got no summer classes.
So I'll be a full time mommeh to D
the whole summer.
So it's catching up time.

Moving on.. 
Just last week, my kiddo and I accompany my mom 
for her overnight stay in Zamboanga. 
She's leaving for Manila in connection with her job. 
Mom is always traveling and I envy her for that. 
I'm gonna travel around the PH too, soon. :)

So we checked in at Marcian Business Hotel. 
She opted for a hotel around town for more 
accessible food and store establishments. 
Here's a shot of mom and D when we got to the room.

Another D's seductive pose. He used to do that. Ugh.
 We right away reached for the bed! Achy feet we got with all the walking.

Here's me with my big kid. :))
His I-dont-care pose.
After a short nap, 
I thought of bringing him to that kiddie 
place where he'd be entertained.
He gets bored and would go all the way pasaway. 
So fun castle is the place to be.

Here's a few shots.
His exaggerated smile. haha.
He found some playmates.

Yes, its just the 3 of them. :D

Happiness :)))

He enjoyed this slide a lot.

 And this is one fun and happy day!
Hope you had yours too. :)
