The Chronicles of a Young Wife x Firmoo Welcome The Rain International Giveaway!

Hey everyone, how you all guys and gals doing? I was really busy being a mom - a breastfeeding work at home kind of mom - I had to lay low on blogging to do other priorities like babe and clients/architects; meet my daily structural design deadlines, rush site inspections (sometimes, they tend to be so demanding just like babe!), go print here and sign-seal there, deliver this, deliver that - all with my nursing child on one arm, and our "luggage" (important office documents and diapers!) on the other! I was just really grateful I had my mom tending to babe whenever I'm attending conference meetings and my sister Beth to play with babe whenever I need to go inside a construction site for ocular inspection before concrete pouring. Okay, I'll stop ranting and spare you the bloody details of my everyday hiatus (word of the year!) and share with you an international giveaway!

    Tiny Buds Rice Baby Powder

    Did you know that talc powder have negative effects on our overall health? What more when it comes to our babies? That is why one of my recent favorites for my babe is this

    Tiny Buds Rice Baby Powder!

    Got  some free samples included in this loot
    The Loot Bag, Freebies and Raffle Prizes!
    The Loot Bag, Freebies and Raffle Prizes!

    Met Tiny Buds on an event last year on a Mommy  Mundo Event

    Tiny Buds booth and goodies! <3

    So what's the big difference between the two? Regular powder made from talc is obviously
    not talc-free, some even are not hypoallergenic. Body talc powder is also not water repellant, nor prevent sweat. Others are not even safe for infant use especially those with fragrant on it.

    Good thing to know that Tiny Buds as the packaging claims has

    *Sweat Control - repels water while allowing water to evaporate naturally hence making and keeping baby's skin healthy and dry from perspiration

    *Hypoallergenic - good not just for babies but for all ages even for sensitive skin because its free from harmful talc and other chemicals

    *Biodegradable - environment friendly products are always welcome in my household

    *100% Talc-Free - as previously said, talc have negative effect on our health

    *100% Real Rice Grains - all natural and non-toxic

    Aside from mentioned above, Tiny Buds Rice Baby Powder is rich in protein and amino acids; components found in rice, these provide natural UV protection for baby's delicate skin! Perfect for our tropical weather, to avoid rashes and soothe skin on heat!

    The Tiny Buds leaflets included in the loot suggests an experiment to see the BIG DIFFERENCE.
    Thinking about it, I decided to do it on a regular "baby" powder first just to make sure it wouldn't yield the same result, otherwise the experiment itself would be nonsense, right? #skeptical much? Moms gotta be moms, right?

    Are you ready to take the experiments with me? Read on!

    Chronicles of a Young Wife: Stiefel Oilatum

    Got several sample bars from different events that I've attended like BDJ Box (#so glad I've passed the moisturized skin test on their booth) and Mommy Mundo's MOTF, and I must say, my baby's skin is soft and smooth! :)

    Here are some of my babe's photo showing off his smooth soft healthy skin!
    We love using Oilatum on baby's bum after soiling his diaper, I even use this on his hair when we travel and he needs a one-minute bath to refresh his body especially when its hot and humid. After a bath of Oilatum, I don't need to put lotion on his skin anymore because he is super smooth and his skin was moisturized already, hence, quick slumber after!
    I have more stiefel products to try to and share like the cleanser and moisturizer but for now check out Stiefel Spectraban 60 - a really high-end sun screen!

    GeriLen ELizabeth's Trip to 100,000!

    We've been longing to give this kabuki brush set a while back but we recently focus on our sponsored international giveaways, (plus work and babe in my case) and also we just couldn't think of something fun and exciting way to do it, but at long last, we finally decided on how to make this a bit different to our previous giveaways here.

     As you all know this blog is just more than a year old only, yet we are happy to say that our readers are slowly growing day by day, and with that, we will thank you through this little giveaway! <3

    trip to 100,000!

    Babe's First Good Taste! :D

    In our last Baguio summer vacation (that's like a month or so ago), we decided to try out the latest (2nd) branch of Good Taste in Baguio City. Just like Jacks Restaurant, it serves Filipino/Chinese food, complete from soups to cake, with rice, meat, and vegetables.

     Our table mates from left to right:#Mamala Luz, *Titala Lyn, Mamala Ellen, Titala Nida and Tita Beth.
    #Mamala means Mama-Lola (mommy-grandma)
    *Titala means Tita-Lola (aunt-grandma)

    Babe can't wait for our orders to come, he taps his own "liquid gold"! :P Good thing it's a "slip" away!

    Note: This blog supports exclusive breastfeeding up to 6 months, extended breastfeeding infants and toddlers, and breastfeeding in public. Ask your healthcare provider and lactation consultants for more.
