[Food] — Dears Cafeteria • Markham Location & Review

g0249 g0250

Dears Cafeteria – what a unique name? I sure hope they didn’t use the wrong spelling of ‘dears’ or ‘deer’ because their logo is a ‘deer’. It will be very funny.

g0251

We decided to try a new Taiwanese restaurant out. The dish I ordered was pork chop on rice. It was a mayo overload meal for me! Way too much mayo and I couldn’t taste anything else.

g0252 g0253

Hubby enjoyed his pasta and chicken wings. But he did mention that the pasta I make tastes better than the one he had here. What a compliment for me eh?

The renovations here is nice and modern. I might give it a second try to try different dishes. They do have a large selection of their desserts too.  What are your favorites here? Comment below to share!

Have an YUMMILIOUS day!!!

[Beauty] — First Impression of Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50 Sunscreen

My first impression of the Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50 Sunscreen was AMAZING! Yes – I am base-ing this review after trying it for the first time.

Number one thing that bothers me about applying sunscreen to my face is the stickiness and tackiness of it. That’s why I avoid sunscreen on my face most of the time. With this one – it feels like nothing was on my face after applying it! I could not believe it – it has a high SPF too!

Now I won’t be avoiding any sunscreen on my face anymore. I’ll definitely be stocking up a few bottles of these! How come I wasn’t introduced to this amazing sunscreen sooner? I highly recommend you all to try it out. It’s AMAZING! It can be easily purchase on Amazon!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Mommy Monday] — Making My Own Baby Food?

It’s Mommy Monday – why do I prefer to make my own baby meals?

Honestly the number one reason is because I know exactly what’s in the food. Even though store bought food tells you the ingredients on the jar – but what’s the amount of each ingredient? You’ll never know.

Secondly – it takes around 30-45 minutes to prepare. It doesn’t take long to make your baby’s food – so why not?

Thirdly – you can add whatever you want in it. My choice is 2 types of veggies, rice or pasta, and 1 type of meat. Doctor advised me to add extra oil in my son’s food too. I use avocado oil in all the food I make.

You don’t have to only make it for a day – you can make it for a few days. I prefer to make it for 3 days at a time. Honestly – you can add all sorts of healthy ingredients in your baby’s food. I love preparing & cooking my Munchkins’ food. He loves eating it too.

Have a SPECTACULAR day!!!

[LifeStyle] — Outfit of the Day 06/17/17

It’s been awhile since I’ve done Outfit of the Day (OOTD) – since summer is around the corner – time for some new OOTDs. My style is always comfort over fashion. With having two kids – fashion is just not my priority right now. I do dress up once in awhile when I’m out without my boys though.

I’m not always comfortable doing OOTDs because of my weight. Since I’m working on it – I’m a little less concern. Is that the right word? Lol.

Wearing: H&M black tank top, Express dress shirt, H&M leggings, and Louis Vuitton speedy purse. I paired it with a pair of black Toms. Stay tune for more Outfit of the Days – I’ll be doing a lot more of these – its fun to look back on it.

Have a GORGEOUS day!!!

[Food] — Sumo Japanese Restaurant • $10.50 Lunch Specials

g0254

Sumo Japanese restaurant is one of my go to restaurants when I want to dine in for lunch or dinner. They have their daily lunch or dinner specials. Their portion size is always good! Comes with salads and soups as well!

g0255

They have the option of a la cartè or all you can eat. My choice is always a la cartè because I am not a fan of over-eating. I give the quality here 8.5 out of 10. Service is a 10 out of 10. The staff here is always attentive and the food comes fast. No complaints!

g0256 g0257

I recommended this restaurant to a few of my friends and they all loved it. I would highly recommend it to you all!

 Have an YUMMILICIOUS day!!!

[Haul] — Sephora Beauty Haul

It’s been awhile since I did a Sephora haul. I try to stay away from Sephora because it’s a very dangerous place to be! It’s a money sucking shop. Lol okay – just kidding. I usually step my foot into this shop when I really need something.

I needed to pick up a new Sephora Matte Foundation Powder in another shade. The shade I had before was a bit too dark for me. Which I can save that for the summer times.

This is the fourth or fifth time I picked up a Laura Mercier Hydrating Face Primer. I love this product! A tube of this lasts me about half a year – its around $40.

 I also received some samples as well since I purchased these two items online during their VIB sale. I had the pleasure of receiving 15% off. Love their free shipping too!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Mommy Monday] — Dealing With Hectic Schedules

It’s Mommy Monday! How do I deal with hectic schedules? Life can be hectic at times – there’s barely anytime to sit and relax these days I find. But it’s the life I asked to have. I have no complaints on how busy this life of ours is.

Honestly – adding an extra child to our family is sure hectic but I love every part of organizing & planning.

Number one thing to avoid hectic stressful days is be ORGANIZE! If I know we will have a busy day the next day – I prep everything the day before. Pack bags, pack food, do chores, have outfits ready, and write out a schedule the day before. This really helps because it gives me less work the next day. You just got to plan ahead and know what you’re doing.

Another thing is – that is why I need to know things way in advance. So I can distribute my chores on the days I’m less busy. Or do less chores on the days I’m busy.

 I think those are the tips I can give. Life can be crazy at times but embrace every part of it. Once the kids grow up – life can slow down a bit and you’ll miss the craziness! Agree or disagree? How do you deal with hectic schedules? Comment below to share!

Have a GORGEOUS day!!!

[Throwback Thursday] — Round 2 of Gestational Diabetes

Exactly a year ago – I was given this advice to check my gestational diabetes. I was diagnosed very late in my second pregnancy. Which I was very grateful for because I could still eat most of the things I want but with a little exercising. It wasn’t too bad because when I experienced it the first time – my eating habits stayed with me throughout the years. Whole wheat was always in my diet. I’m glad I do not ever need to poke my fingers again! #THANKFUL #LOVELOVELOVE #PREGNANCIES #MYEXPERIENCES #BLESSED #GRATEFUL

The oysters here are always very fresh. They have oyster specials on Tuesdays and Wednesdays – be sure to check it out!
