[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

[Food] — Diana Oyster Bar & Grill • Markham Location Review

Diana’s Oyster Bar & Grill is one of my hubbys’ favorite restaurant. When we started visiting this restaurant – it was all the way in Scarborough. We were so thrilled when they opened a second restaurant in Markham. It saves us time from travelling.

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

[Celebration] — My Mother’s Day 2017

This is my first Mother’s day with two kiddos. The day didn’t turn out as I wanted but I am still very blessed.

Munchkin#1 was still sick – so we decided to stay home and relax. Originally we booked a reservation at Milestones for brunch and were going visit my Stepmother & park after. But we wanted him to get better first before we go anywhere. I love being home in my pajamas and messy hair. Nothing beats that! Am I the only weird person on this earth or what? I totally choose comfort over anything! My home is my comfort place & I love being at home.

Hubby picked up Japanese food for lunch & it was yummy. This day was just a lot of cuddling and sitting around for all of us. Nothing I want more than to have my family healthy & happy. This counts as my 7th Mother’s day. It’s as special as every year. This year may be more special because I have two boys.

Thank you God & my mommy from above for blessing me with two amazing boys! I love this title as a mother – it’s the most rewarding job ever. Don’t all you mommies out there agree with me?

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Mother’s Day 2017 With In-Laws

Mother’s day, father’s day or any kind of holiday is always a nonstop time for us. We couldn’t fit celebrating Mother’s day with Hubbys’ grandma this year – but we did for my in-laws. Invited in-laws over for a sit down dinner. They got to play with their grandkids and try the cake Munchkin#1 decorated.

Dining at home is just was more comfortable than dining out. I’m not a huge fan of the crowds, the rush, and the waits. It’s just not my thing. I enjoy having meals at home – so the kids can just go play when they’re done their meals. There are no rushes to leave and you get the rest of the jazz. How did you celebrate Mother’s day? Comment below to share!

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Mother’s Day Cake Decorating 2017

We had a fun event at Loblaws for cake decorating a day before Mother’s day. Munchkin#1 wasn’t feeling 100% but he still was excited to have fun. He decorated cakes before but this time it was a little different. It had two layers on this cake. He did a little bit of icing and Hubby did the rest.

Munchkin#1 enjoyed decorating the most. It was so much fun for him. Hopefully Munchkn#2 can join in the fun next year. Munchkin#2 sure did help by putting his hand in and scooping up a large chunk of icing. Haha.

Overall a fun experience for a family of four. I’m always on a look out for any type of cooking/food classes that fit our schedule.

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!
