Vaseline Petroleum Jelly: 101 Ways

I was never a fan of petroleum jelly.   In fact, I used to not like it – as is quite sticky.   The only use I’ve found for Vaseline Petroleum Jelly before having kids was just a lip balm. When I had kids, it was a different story altogether.   I became a fan and was impressed with the benefits of using petroleum jelly when Kailee was diagnosed with skin asthma.   Our pediatrician suggested we try to put them on her rashes – and it worked!   Since then, we’d always have a pot of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly in the house and in our baby bag. Since my two kids have skin asthma, I’ve gone through sooo much lotions and medicines and practices to help ease their skin conditions.   For the past 5 years, I have sorted through products and brands from all over to help my kids’ skin condition.   But one thing was constant – it was our use of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly with a medicine that has helped us through major flare ups.   You see, as with everyone – I was quite uncomfortab

Auntie Cata's Green & Leafy Lettuce!

I am very picky when it comes to veggies.  There are only a handful of veggies that I am willing to eat and one of them are lettuces! Look at that beauty: I noticed that my mom would get deliveries of fresh lettuces every so often.  As it turns out, Auntie Cata - my mom's BFF, grows them in her home - using hydroponics!  Brilliant right?  It's not made in some facility far away - and is instead it's home made and home cared for!  So I assure you, the quality is very very good.  I noticed too that her lettuces don't brown that easily.  Thank goodness for Auntie Cata's lettuces - we can have regular Taco Tuesdays now.  Hihi.. :) I am honestly wishing and hoping that Auntie Cata will venture into other veggies as well - like ARUGULA!  Hahaha.... These lettuces are at P400.00/Kilo .  Order at least 500grams for FREE DELIVERY! You may reach Auntie Cata at +639175208096. Before I forget, Auntie Cata also makes delicious  Vietnamese Spring Rolls . I can

Tickled (again) by TICKLES!

I think most everyone in my school (during my time) knew of Tickles.  It was a treasure trove of cutesy stuff, stationary, ballpens, organizers and many more.  I grew up going to Tickles every single time I was in Greenhills.  I still remember where the original Tickles store used to be.  Honestly, whenever I am in Greenhills - I would have flashbacks of what the Tickles store looked like. Most of my friends went there to shop for cute stuff.  Erasers, stationaries (it was uso before to write letters to one another) - the so many many stationary pads, the quirky designs and smart-ish quotes.  I swear, it was heaven for us girls.  I remember whatever Tickles sold, would become the *fad*, well sort of - since all of us in ICA would scramble to get our hands on these new merchandise. Their Greenhills store has long closed and they've moved to the malls.  Whenever I see a Tickles store, it bring me back to my younger years.  Hahaha!!  And so when a friend said that Tickles has

Pure Pressed Apple Juice & Just Right Grape Juice from #OishiGreatLakes

Juice is a staple in my family.  My Panget loves juices - and he has passed it on to Connor.  So every time we do our groceries, for sure you will find tetra packs of juices in our cart.  Their flavor of choice - Apple and Grape. And so when I learned that #OishiGreatLakes has an apple and grape juice, I was excited!  It was honestly, perfect!  I was so excited that I told Connor about this and he got excited too!  And so when we received our lovely crate of #WholesomeRefreshement - it was Connor who did the honors of opening it and he was so happy to see apple and grape juices!  He so loved the small tetra packs, and declared that those will all be his baon (he also said he will not share with Achi Kailee). He so enjoyed the apple juice that he was able to finish two (2) small tetra packs!!  Wala ng pambaon!  Hahaha...  Here is what Connor has to say about #OishiGreatLakes apple juice: (I am unable to load the video because of technical difficulties!  And it's frustrat
