[Haul] — Foody Mart Grocery Haul

F001

Here’s my little grocery haul at Foody Mart. I usually buy more of their meat when they go on sale and when I get home – I portion-ize it and freeze whatever I don’t need. Got some veggies and milk tea. This Old Town white milk tea is my hubby and my favorite. Stay tune for more daily organization tips & hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Beauty] — Maybelline Brow Drama Crayon Review

f283

Here’s my very first “First Impression” review. I saw the advertisement on Instagram and I told myself I had to try it out!

My first impression was that I love the formula of it. Loved how smooth and easily it goes on. I didn’t need to go over my brows a few times – one time does the job.

The other thing that I’m not too fond of is the thick size of the pencil – very hard to shape my brows. I did end up using a brow brush. Which isn’t a problem.

Got to say I love it – love how inexpensive it is too. I think it was less than $10? Don’t quite remember but it was affordable. I believe there’s a thinner pencil with the same formula too. I’ll be looking into getting one and seeing what the difference is. Probably easier to draw and shape your eyebrows with. Have you tried this product? What are your opinions and thoughts on it?

[Review] — Genie Diaper Bin

c26-B001BMWABI-3-l

Here are my honest reviews about this product! I have to say it’s NOT worth it. I used this Playtex Genie Diaper Bin 4 years ago and I never liked it.

First off – the refills are so EXPENSIVE. You are basically paying for expensive bags – just to have it throw out. It’s about $23.99+tax for a 3 pack refill. Each pack refills holds up to 270 diapers. Sometimes it doesn’t hold up to that many diapers really.

It’s just the concept of paying so much for plastic bags is really not worth the money.

Would I say its convenient? It can be – but no matter what you’ll still have to throw the diapers out regularly because it’ll stink. What’s the difference in using regular bags and have it throw out regularly right? Same concept. I remember a refill barely lasts for a week. So you’re looking at paying $7.00-$9.00 for plastic bags a week.

Here is my review – I don’t recommend it at all. The bins can be inexpensive but the plastic bag refills is what gets you! What are your thoughts? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more reviews and hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for stopping by!

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

[Event Planning] — Kerropi DIY Theme Party • Decorations, Party Favors, Prize Baskets, Food Stamps

f265 f266

Do you guys remember Kerropi? Kerropi is a Japanese Sanrio character and we don’t see this character around often anymore. It was so much fun creating and designing for this party! This theme was for my son’s 1 month celebration party. Here you see above is the banner I created & the 145 food stamps I designed, cut, and paste together. I should of made more food stamps – I didn’t have enough for all the finger food I had.

f267

Prize baskets for the games we played that day. Another fun project for me to put together these 6 baskets and our friends enjoyed them too. I try to put in kids snacks to bring back childhood memories. There were six different kinds of snacks in each basket.

f268f269

Here’s the favors I had for our guests. There’s two parts: DIY candy kabobs & loot bags. For the candy kabobs – putting it together was messier then I thought. I wanted to give up after the second kabob! It was just so sticky and messy! Especially being OCD myself…. I did end up making 26-27 of those. Guests tend to like them because it was wrapped nicely and it’s a unique kind of favor. I might do them again for future parties? Who knows… As for the loot bags – there were 3 different kinds of snacks: chocolate chip cookies, chewy bars, and ritz cheese dip sticks. I love putting together loot bags! I made about 25 of these and I almost didn’t have enough. Well technically I don’t have enough because I want to give a few more out for people that visited at different times.

  f270

Cut out around 45 of these cuties to decorate around our home. I’m usually watching TV when doing all these DIY stuff – so it’s really not that much work to me. If you love what you do – its really fun!

f271 f272

Two out of the four party games we had. We had the famous diaper game, cotton challenge game, chubby bunny, and musical chairs. I’m so glad that our friends enjoyed the game and had fun. Having games at a party gives a better connection and vibe with each other. It’s just much funner then sitting around and being on their phones.

f273

Last but not least – the party food! It’s mostly finger food – which is easier to manage! I had meatballs, cheesey mussels, chicken bites, chicken nuggets, Greek pastry (forgot the name), devil eggs, potato salad, and cupcakes. The potato salad was a big hit! I was actually surprised that people wanted more but I didn’t have anymore! For sure will be having that again for my next party!

Overall – it was so much fun organizing yet another party! This is actually the very first party for my Munchkin#2! Do you plan your parties too? Care to share some of your tips?

[Food] — July 2016 Cooking Diary

f154 f155

Here’s to another month of my cooking diary. I love doing these little diaries because when I have no idea what to meal plan for the week. I go back to these blog posts.

f156 f157

f158 f159

Surprisingly I did do quite a bit of cooking last month even after a C-Section. Everything went back to normal & I had a speedy recovery.

f160 f161

f162 f163

I made a lot of soup to make sure I drank enough liquid for my milk supply! I drink about 8-10 cups of liquid a day and I think it does help a lot. I don’t need to worry about not having enough milk.

[Baby] — What’s Was In My Hospital Bag?

f258

What was in my hospital bag? At first I packed for a natural birth hospital bag but after having many thoughts to it – I had to prepare myself to expect the unexpected. Which thank god I did!

f259 f260 f261

I did end up having a c-section and I was glad my bag was all prepared for it. Although it was a planned c-section – hospital bag was something I didn’t have to repack again. These are the stuff that I packed with me. I used a gym bag that’s big enough to fit all my stuff. I didn’t end up showering at the hospital – so some stuff weren’t used.

f262 f263 f264

Overall – I would say have a plan B if you’re packing your hospital bag. I know of two friends that had an emergency c-section. It’s always great to be prepared and organized. Hope this post helps you out! Even if you forgot something – your other half can always go home or the store to grab it. Not big of a deal really.

Have a PERFECT day!!!

[Lifestyle] — 1 Month Postpartum

f241

My weekly baby pump photos

It’s a month already? That also means my baby is a month old already! As much as I want him to grow fast and healthy – I want him to slow down a little bit. I want to hold my tiny baby as much as I can because I know I won’t be able to hold another one of my own.

It’s been a month! Let’s talk about my c-section scar. I still haven’t really taken a closer look at it because I am scared of it! I know its healing well because I haven’t felt any pain or itchiness. I do have my Hubby to look at it and he tells me how it looks and stuff.

f242

I started taking my bubble bath after two and a half week after postpartum – which seems alright. I remember last time I had to wait six weeks because of natural birth. This time since it was c-section – nurse said it was okay to take baths.

f243

Wanted to have my hair cut done before my delivery but didn’t have time – so this is after delivery

My bleeding stopped after the 11-12 day – which was weird because it’s supposed to last 6 weeks. Although the bleeding stopped – there’s still this yellowish-white discharge coming out every day. Once in awhile there’s blood.

Since I am Asian – you would have thought I’d follow the Chinese tradition. One month confinement and etc etc… I didn’t follow any last time except eating ginger vinegar. This time I try to not eat this or that due to my scar. I tried for two weeks which was a big fail. I did end up going out and taking the baby out after a few days.

f244

My first bowl of ginger vinegar after 3 weeks postpartum

Basically everything went back to normal after I came home. I cooked, baked, cleaned, and etc. Since I didn’t feel pain at all – everything was all good. I didn’t feel tired at all too. I wonder why? I kept myself busy with just the regular to do(s).

I did drink lots of liquids! I made sure I had enough milk supply in me this time because I do want to start freezing milk. The more milk I freeze = the faster I can stop breastfeeding. I want my Munchkin to breastfed till 10 months old and the rest bottle fed with breast milk. By 10 months – I would want him to sleep in his own without needing to wake up in the middle of night for feeding (just like his brother).

As for my weight gain.. I am not sure how much I weight now (I need to buy a new scale). I do want to start hitting up the gym next month when Munchkin#2 is at school. I’m not too worried about my weight right now. My focuses are providing enough breast milk and keep myself healthy.

f245

Took millions of pictures of myself & family already…

I have to say my c-section recovery was quite fast. I felt like I never undergo a surgery at all! I thought I’d be handicap for two weeks till two months of time. I was so ready to be bedridden for awhile because of the pain. But thank goodness for no pain!

I think that’s all the update for my first month of postpartum. Stay tune for more daily updates – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by!

Have an AWESOME day!!!
