[Life Story][Youtube] — My Vlogging Life Updates

a186

What happened to my every day vlogging? Don’t get me wrong I’m still vlogging just not on an everyday basis. I find that it’s boring and repetitive vlogging the same thing every day. Especially I’m home most of the time and doing mostly the same routines.

I enjoy capturing memories still – I’m still vlogging those special and growing up moments. Especially trip days, firsts, going outs and etc. Stay tune for more vlogs and blog posts – this blog is updated daily at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by & see you soon!

Have a TERRIFIC day!!!

[Life Story][Celebration] — Our Third Year Wedding Anniversary Celebration – July.9.2014

JENSLIFESTYLE 1028 JENSLIFESTYLE 1029 JENSLIFESTYLE 1030

What an amazing anniversary celebration dinner we had – although we only spent a couple hours together – as long as we are happy – we are content. As I said in our yesterdays YouTube Vlog – three years flew by like a blink of an eye. After 8 months of our wedding – we welcomed our first born. Life was even busier raising a kid, going to different life celebrations, day to day life, being a parent, being a spouse, being a daughter, and being a daughter in-law. Although its busy – I enjoy every bit of it. I captured the memories in pictures. I wished I did YouTube Vlogs a lot earlier but that’s okay. Yesterdays Vlog we talked about Baby#2 – so watch it to find out our plans!

On to the surprise dinner. Last year I only gave direction to my husband & didn’t tell him which restaurant we were going to – this year I did the same thing. Since he’s a seafood lover – The Lobster Trap was the perfect restaurant to celebrate our third year being a married couples. Prior going to this restaurant – I read a lot of reviews and I know The Lobster Trap is a popular restaurant. I told my girlfriend about it and she told me about the Groupon deal which was $25 for $50! What a bonus!

This year – Munchkin joined us for dinner. I was debating if we should bring him along or not. I was worried he’ll be fussy & cranky! Thanks to my husbands’ smart idea – he brought the Ipad to dinner! Lol I don’t condone that – but in order to have a peaceful anniversary dinner – we did it.

I posted a full review on The Lobster Trap experiences and prices HERE.

We had an amazing dinner and a peaceful one too. Three years and we are still going strong. We don’t argue but there are disagreements from time to time. I can’t expect my husband to see eye to eye with me every time. Everyone is different. Our key is to compromise. We are still working on the romantic part of our relationship. I keep complaining that he isn’t romantic but the thing is – I am not romantic too. I’m not the type of girl that likes cheesy things. I can’t expect him to be romantic when I am not myself. Do you call that a hypocrite? I want him to be romantic but I am not romantic? Lol.

Marriage is all about unconditional love and care. Love is never about the materialistic things. If I could have ANYTHING in this world – I ask for ultimate happiness. Being a happy and cheerful person is so important. Ever since I started YouTube Vlogging – I’ve become a more confident girl (even without having makeup on). I’ve learned to love myself for who I am and as l am beautiful and honest inside – there’s nothing to hide.

JENSLIFESTYLE 1034

My husband has changed me in many ways. He loved my flaws and who I am ever since the first day he met me. He never told me to change but as time goes by – I change without noticing it. I’ve adapted to his lifestyle. I see things differently and matured as I grow. Although – he doesn’t take credit for it – I got to give him a 100% credit for the life and lifestyle I have now. I am blessed and grateful every single day of my life. I believe that my beloved mother from haven planned this all along for me. I still believe that she watches from above every single day. This may sound scary but I do believe in spirits. Every second, every step of life is planned. Although she left me at a very young age – I still feel her love and guidance. This sounds like I’m off topic but the thing is – I believe that I met the love of my life because of her.

Its been an amazing three years of marriage and a total of almost six years of being together. I never regret a single decision. Going through ups and downs is part of growing up in life. May there be many more years to come. I know that I’ll never ever be able to tell him all this with my own mouth – I probably be crying on my first paragraph. I like writing everything down instead of saying it. Thank you for this amazing life Hubby! I love you forever!

[Life Story][Celebration] — A Relaxing Mother’s Day – My Third Mother’s Day! – 2014

JENSLIFESTYLE.COM 240

Before I go on to blogging how wonderful and relaxing my mother’s day was – I wanted to take a few minutes in wishing my beloved mother a Happy Mother’s day. I believe in spirits and I believe she is watching from above. I miss you dearly and think about you every single day – not a day pass by that you’re not in my mind. My childhood was painful and very vague. I don’t really remember much of how I was when I was a child. Maybe sometimes not remembering is better than remembering? I love to remember the good times than the bad times – but I guess memories don’t work that way? I grew up from an abusive family and all I could remember was yelling and hitting.

Till this day – I’m very scared and frightened by it. I remember sometime last year when I was in Vancouver – I was living with my Aunt and Uncle and they rented the main floor to two families. One morning – I heard a father yelling at his own son and there were some movements. I was half asleep when I heard it but my heart was pounding throughout the whole argument and it brings me back to my childhood. These scary memories will be something I like for it to go away but it doesn’t seem like it will – I believe it will carry on for the rest of my life. The only thing I can change is NEVER allowing my own children going through what I went through.

Growing up – I had so many unanswered questions in my heart. Did my mother have an easy labor? Was anyone there for her during her labor? Was I a hard baby to take care of? How was I like when I was a child? Did I cause a lot of sleepless nights? And there is a ton more questions and it’ll be forever unanswered. In a way – I accepted that because that’s how my life is. But on other days – I’m curious to know.

I miss you so much Mommy! Thanks for watching over me and giving me this wonderful life now. I know somehow you worked your way from above giving me this wonderful life I have now. I’m forever grateful & blessed. You’re the one that makes me appreciate every single little thing in life!

Back to my 3rd Mother’s day – that was an emotional paragraph to type out and it made me cried a bit.

I started off the day at the Spa for a 75 minute facial and 60 minute body massage. I felt like I was in haven for two hours. It was a much needed body massage even though I had one from the week before. Due to working on my blog constantly – my neck and back is very tense and tired – so it was nice having one on Mother’s day.

After two hours being away from my husband and my son. I came out and found yellow flowers and a card placed on my seat. How sweet was that right? It was my first time receiving Mother’s day flowers this year and I was quite surprised by it.

After my spa session – we headed over to my Godmother’s workplace to drop off this bouquet of cuteness for her. I was so worried she wasn’t at work but good thing she was! She was quite surprised I showed up!

Than we headed to Jayden’s Godfather’s place to spend some quality time with him. I love to watch my son be surrounded with positive and genuine people – good role models in his life are so important. The love and care his Aunties and Uncles give him is unbelievable. I rather have him spoiled by love and care than toys. Love and care is something that you can’t buy.

  I didn’t ask for any fancy dinner but instead all I asked for was a ‘peaceful’ dinner – when you become a mother – there’s no such thing as ‘peaceful dinners’ in your dictionary. I got what I wanted because Munchkin had a late nap! That was such a sweet treat for me – aren’t I easy to please?

JENSLIFESTYLE.COM 250 JENSLIFESTYLE.COM 251

After my ‘peaceful dinner’ in bed – I headed to get my roots re-done and a haircut. That nearly took up my whole night – three long hours. I’m such a happy camper now because those roots bothered me for such a long time!

My 3rd Mother’s day is quite a pamper and relaxing day! I love every bit of it. But one thing I totally forgot about was – taking family photos! What a bummer right?

How was your Mother’s day celebrated? Care to share – comment below! TGIF – have a FABULOUS FRIDAY! I have blog posts every single day – feel free to come back & read more about my lifestyle. I do daily vlogs on my LadyyJae Youtube Channel also!

[Fashion][OOTD] — My First Outfit Of The Day

JENSLIFESTYLE.COM 36

I’m no fashion expert and in fact I can be named ‘the worst dresser ever’.

I’ve just recently lost my pregnancy weight and this gave me a confidence boost. I could wear my pre-pregnancy clothes again. Been over two good years. I think losing all this pregnancy weight will allow me to be interested in fashion more because it fits better and more perfectly on my body. I’m still working on losing an extra five pounds – than it’ll be perfect in my eyes!

Todays’ Outfit Of The Day: Marciano jeans, Banana Republic sweater, Tory Burch handbag, Tiffany&Co bead bracelet, Hermes CDC bracelet. I paired my outfit with a pair of black Toms.

Do you enjoy reading OOTD? If so – leave a comment below and I’ll keep up with it. You can also check out my Ladyyjae Youtube Vlogs. Don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE & LIKE.

Have a FABULICIOUS day!

[Life Story][Youtube] — Why I Make Youtube Vlogs?

JENSLIFESTYLE.COM 35

No one ever asked me this question before and reason being is – I started not too long ago.

I always recorded my son; Jayden’s growing up progress and have it uploaded on Facebook. When the video compresses on Facebook – the quality is just not what I want. So – I decided on – why not just upload these mini clips on Youtube instead?

Then I look at my weekly photo albums on Facebook – I have over hundreds of album – collecting memories of each day. I’m crazy at taking photos and these photos will be looked back on one day – each week I take over 100-200 photos. So in a month – I can have over 1000 photos. Crazy or what?

Here’s WHY I make Youtube Daily Vlogs. I thought – why don’t I just combine all these photos and daily mini clips into a ‘Vlog’ – since I love watching other Youtubers daily Vlog – it’ll be fun to watch my own Vlogs. It’s more fun and real to look back on. So – that’s why I did it.

I had a huge debate on my head for a couple of days. Some reasons are:

  • – low confidence
  • – not a great speaker
  • – low self esteem
  • – need to be more public with my life. This part is HUGE for me because my life is very private.
  • – not comfortable showing myself with no makeup

All those reasons could have led me to NOT be making any Youtube videos but I thought to myself – this could be a learning experience where I can gain my confidence slowly. Where I can be more comfortable with myself. Where I can keep myself busy with editing each days video. Where it can lead me to different opportunities (last thing on my mind), but yet be a young stay at home mother to my kid(s) and a housewife to my husband. I was 50/50 on it but at the end – I push myself into doing it. Into speaking more. Into showing myself more on camera. It can only get better and better each day – in a slow progress. I want my kid(s) to grow up one day and look at what a role model their mother is. Nothing is impossible unless you put your whole heart to it. Its really how much you want it to happen!

My motives is not to make a big buck – it’ll be nice but I don’t want to think that way. I want to be honest with myself and be motivated to do these day-to-day Vlogs for my families and friends to watch. If I have the mindset of making a lot of money and if it doesn’t happen. I’ll be disappointed and not be motivated to do these daily Vlogs. It’s nice to be a stay at home mother and housewife – yet to have a stay at home job. If it comes – it comes. If it doesn’t – I’m blessed to be looking back at all these awesome memories I captured with my family and friends.

Here you got it. Being happy isn’t always about money. It’s nice to have these luxury things but nothing can buy happiness and health.

Here’s my Youtube Channel – feel free to SUBSCRIBE & LIKE.

Have a FABULOUS and BLISSFUL day. Stay true to who you are! Be honest and be yourself!
