My Top 5 Essential Oil Recipes

I am an essential oil user. I diffuse them in the air. I mix them up to make blends for various purposes. These blends I get to inhale or apply on my skin/body. But, I don’t ingest them. I don’t mix them with my food or drinks. Right now, I source my essential oils locally.…… Continue reading My Top 5 Essential Oil Recipes

Working Moms’ Contributions

I just realized that among my three planned posts for a week, the hardest one to come up with is the Monday Momday post. And, it’s not because I’ve run out of motherhood/parenthood topics. As a matter of fact, I often find my brain cluttered with mommy matters. The reason is, coming out from a…… Continue reading Working Moms’ Contributions

#TummyBliss The Boiling Crabs and Shrimps Plus Le Sucre Lab Dreamcakes: Gastronomic Adventures

Today is the most-awaited Friday and no motherhood or money post from me. I’m not surprised to find it difficult not to talk about these two topics in which my world seems to revolve around. But, I also quickly realized how necessary and healthy this day is for me as I am forced to refocus…… Continue reading #TummyBliss The Boiling Crabs and Shrimps Plus Le Sucre Lab Dreamcakes: Gastronomic Adventures

What I Will be Seeking First this 2019

If you’ve been following my blog long enough, you’d know that I always have done some sort of a recap of the past year and set new goals or plans for the new one. By now, you might have noticed that it’s missing. I did not look back on the year that was because I…… Continue reading What I Will be Seeking First this 2019

Review: Netflix’s Tidying Up with Marie Kondo

On Fridays like this, you’d be able to see a more personal note from me. I plan to publish on my blog my thoughts (probably random but hopefully inspirational), advocacies, experiences, and everything else not about motherhood and money. This Friday, I was supposed to publish my “Best of 2018” but I decided to delay…… Continue reading Review: Netflix’s Tidying Up with Marie Kondo

Preparation for a Meaningful Christmas for Kids

Christmas, Christmas, Christmas – once nothing but a joyful season has become a rushed, intense and exhausting time as I grew older. It is not Christmas’ fault. I know that. It’s people’s perception of celebration, expectations, and superficiality. When I was in college, I used to strive to complete all nine mornings at three in…… Continue reading Preparation for a Meaningful Christmas for Kids

#TravelBliss | Prado Farms: The Perfect Place for a Quick Retreat

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1t9Y5C2fGc&t=114s If there is one thing in my pre-mamahood life that I terribly miss, it would be my travels, yes, even more than my pre-pregnancy body! I used to hoard airline tickets on sale, albeit local only. And every time I get stressed out, I would just open my drawer and see all these tickets…… Continue reading #TravelBliss | Prado Farms: The Perfect Place for a Quick Retreat

#InMy30s A Mom’s Birthday Reflection

Seven years ago, I named this blog Blissful Thoughts out of my wedding bliss. While most of my posts (especially the recent ones) were essentially blissful, there were still some which weren’t. That’s life if you’d ask me, in its authentic picture, with all its pain and glory. Not everything and not every day is…… Continue reading #InMy30s A Mom’s Birthday Reflection

Streaming is Life!

I found a new way of enjoying a couple of hours of me-time – media streaming! Technically, streaming is (receiving) content sent over the internet in compressed form and is displayed real-time. That way, the recipient or viewer/user need not download a file to play it since the file is sent in a continuous stream…… Continue reading Streaming is Life!

Looking Into a Mom’s Self Worth

Life has its unique way of knocking people down who are already trying damn hard. Just when I thought I had convinced myself that I am doing just fine as a thirty-something working mom, I now feel yet again insufficient, unproductive, lost and not doing enough. I’m questioning my self-worth one more time. Surely, I…… Continue reading Looking Into a Mom’s Self Worth
