Age and Fertility


A woman is said to be on her prime when it comes to fertility during her twenties. Each woman has a specific number of eggs that are released each month during her menstrual period. Her body also releases good quality eggs first. This is why most women can get pregnant in their twenties without much trouble. However, as the woman gets older, her fertility starts to decline. This is the main reason why older women are having difficulty trying to conceive. Aside from that, the baby is more prone to chromosome abnormalities with women pregnant at an older age.

Some women, especially celebrities, want to fulfill their goals and have a good career first before getting pregnant so they choose to have their eggs frozen so they have great quality eggs when they decide to get pregnant. This doesn’t mean that woman in her older age can no longer get pregnant, it is still possible. It’s just that a woman’s chance to get pregnant naturally decreases compared to younger women. Pregnancytips.org says that women over the age of 35 who are trying to get pregnant for more than 6 months with no success may seek help from their doctor.

I was 23 when I got pregnant with my first born and after six years my second pregnancy came and both of those pregnancy were smooth and easy with the help of my Obstetrician.
Check out the site and get helpful tips if there would be any plans of conceiving in the future. Learn and be healthy.

Going YESSS, YAMAN with my 4 Pre-Loved Items!!

Here is the blog story of my Going Yesss, Yaman with my 4 Pre-Loved Items!


Among the four items I'd like to sell my favorite is this leather green strap with light blue rhinestones. I have this for more than 15 years now and this was the first jewelry accessory I bought from my first pay check when I started working from 7 years of being a stay home Mom. I remember how I love to wear this almost everyday and until now the starp looks new and no stones missing. This is how careful and how I treasure my things specially when I love it so much.


I got this Tomato black strap for Her watch last year from a contest. It has a matching for Him watch which I gave to my Father. This is a battery operated watch which has an embosed print on the leather strap in very good condition. I remember how happy I was when I saw the announcement of the blogger that I won her contest giveaway that time. My very first prize watch from an online contest. 


I love watches, I cannot go out without wearing one. I find myself complete when I wear a watch, that's why it became my hobby and somewhat a reward for myself once in a while. This dress Esprit gold strap watch I got three years ago which I bought on sale during a Christmas bazaar. The money I used to buy this was from the 13th month pay I got. On many occasions I have worn this elegant Esprit gold strap watch always a perfect pair. 


Another Esprit watch which I adore so much. Leather strap Esprit automatic watch is my last on the list. This can be worn any time of the day, the classy look and the elegance in one. Since it has an automatic movement the hassle of running out of battery life is zero. You just need to adjust the time and date if not use within a short period of time. Many occasions and memorable moments this watch witnessed and still creating memories with it. 

Can you figure out how I adore watched, I have several pieces more kept inthe vault for future use and probably with hand it down to my daughter. 
Time is really the essence of our daily life and there goes the  saying "Time is Gold"

My brandnew Samsung Digital Inverter Top Freezer

Last weekend blessing poured in once again, after months of planning and trying to save up to buy a new refrigerator... our plans came to reality. We had enough money to buy a new fridge since the item we are trying to sell was sold that day and came up with enough to buy this.

Samsung 8.3 cu.ft Digital Inverter Top Freezer Refrigerator.

Cooling Feature

  • No Frost
  • Multi Flow available
  • Refrigerator Feature

    • 1 Chill Compartment
    • Shelves x 2ea (1ea Slide out)
    • Glass of Shelves
    • Number of Vegetable&Fruit Drawer: 1ea
    • Spill-Proof Shelves x 1ea
    • Door Pocket x 4ea
    • Type of Door Pocket: Transparent
    • Egg Container available
    • LED Interior Light
    • Deodorizer available
    • 1 MoistFresh Zone with Vegetable Box
We got this unit at Abenson's Harbor Point Mall with an original price of P20,999. 

After unboxing the unit we plugged it in for an hour and observed that the body was expelling heat, not the usual temperature I know from our old fridge. 
According to the service center, that is normal with the no-frost fridge. The condenser we use to see at the back of the fridge is now coiled within the body of the unit, thus unfamiliar heat temperature can be felt. 
Samy as my daughter calls it has been running for two days now and I have noticed that the thermostat is already working. 
I am quite happy with the unit and model we got though I wanted the more bigger one that can occupy the whole kitchen area haha! 

How about you? What is your latest appliance haul for the house?

Boy Bawang Puto Seko- ( rice cookies )

Yes! You read it right.. Boy bawang product name has a new variety of snack that I discovered last weekend. Bought a pack for my daughter's snack and she refused to bring it to school. I guess the name Puto Seko is not a hit for her. 
Boy Bawang Puto seko (30 grams) and cost around P6.00 in the grocery. 

The twist of having puto seko ( rice cookies ) in a foil pack plus in chocolate flavor is really new to me. I was used to having that puto seko wrapped in a white japanese paper and sold in our school canteen. ( travelling back to time). 

I am surprise how light and how each cookie melts while you munch it and how the sweetness is just right. I will check it next time if they have a bigger bag because i liked it. 

I tell you check this one out on your next grocery shopping. ;)

Got my White Linen perfume prize from Estee Lauder Philippines

Last December 2013 my name was announced at Estee Lauder Philippines as the winner of their FFOTW (featured fragrance of the week), my prize was a full size bottle of Estee Lauder White Linen. 
How did I win? I only posted a short story comment from the photo on their wall featuring their #FFOTW White Linen. 
I remember that scent during childhood days, how that smells reminds me of people in my life and how  I remember them. The days of a weekend breezy and calm days of my childhood life. It was like going back and riding my own back to the past capsule. 
That short story won the heart of the ELP... And yay, After a few exchange of text message from Ms.Erika regarding the claiming and shipment of my prize I got it yesterday via Air21 courier service. 


                                   
                    Selfie with my bottle of Estee Lauder White Linen perfume. 
You can check out Estee Lauder Philppines Facebook page to join their #FFOTW contest and may the odds be with you and be fab.
Thank you ELP!

Thank You Lotte Xylitol Wish Upon A Smile Promo

Late November of 2013 I came across a blog post wherein she reviewed some gum with Xylitol from Lotte. I saw this brand in the candy section of SM supermarket but never had the chance to buy it. In the blog post she mentioned there about the promo Lotte will be holding over at their Facebook page. It is a photo contest of Mommy and kid in it showing their best smile and Mommy or Dad can wish for a gift for his or her kid this Christmas. Wishing of gifts depends upon the weekly theme posted. 

Since day1 I started posting our photo with the best smile and gift wish i had for my daughter. Luckily, I won the first week consolation prize and this was sent to me as my prize. 
          
                      
Tubes and packs of assorted flavors of Lotte Xylitol gums plus P500 ($12) gift certificate. 

It wasn't just me who was happy about the prize but my kids too! I was able to use the GC to buy some items in the grocery last Christmas season. Lotte Xylitol really made us SMILE! :D
Thank you!

M&M's Chocolate Varieties

How much do you love chocolates? From the simple chocolate bits and bars to the most luscious variety of chocolate, I confess my love for chocolates! 
Chocolate can cure my negative vibes and can always lift up my mood when I am not feeling as great as a Sunday morning breeze. 

Over the holidays which was totally celebrated with family and food, we got some bags of M&M's... Yep so common is the chocolate brand right? What got me excited was the variety of M&M's. 
First up, 

M&M's mint! 
This is a minty variety of M&M's each piece is a bit larger than the regular size pieces of plain M&M's (sorry forgot to take picture of the inside) :)
The assorted shade of green coat is where the excitement of minty taste flavor can be discovered with the usual chocolate taste of M&M's inside. 
This got much the approval from all of us.

Second bag,

M&M's Raspberry with dark chocolate. 
The nicest color! Assorted raspberry shade coated dark M&M's chocolate was a hit!
We love how the raspberry flavor plus the dark chocolate combined. Though the dark chocolate was mild and subtle to taste. I was expecting a more dark chocolate flavor from the first dib but it wasn't. 

Last and final bag,

M&M's White chocolate candy corn bag
We opened this one yesterday, the yellow and orange color can bright up your senses but the flavor inside was not too exciting. Since it was a white chocolate for a M&M brand this is something new for us. Assortment of orange, white and yellow candy coated white chocolate which is the same color as the cady corn treat can be seen inside with almost the size of the regular M&M peanuts pieces. The white chocolate is not that good as the usual brown chocolate we are use to. After a few pieces the bag was kept in a ziplock (guess for later consumption hehe). 

Over all having the most likes from us... M&M's raspberry in dark chocolate holds the first place, next is the M&M's mint then last is the candy corn variety.

Have you tried these varieties yet? Do we have the same taste?

***My views is solely personal, no compensation was made.

Regent Mochi - Japanese Style Glutinous Rice Cakes

I have been so curious about this product since the first time I saw it on one of my FB friend's timeline. I was able to buy a couple of bags from the grocery shopping at SM Supermarket. 

A bag of Regent Mochi assorted and one bag of Ube flavored Mochi.

This one is from the assorted bag which contains 10 pieces of this single mochi in different flavors. This one is buko pandan flavor. 
The inside of the mochi has this sweet bean paste just enough to taste it. Each bag of assorted mochi sells for P57.50 and the Ube mochi which comes in 6pieces per bag cost at P67.00.
My kids loves the flavor of the white and pineapple mochi, i'd go for the ube mochi.

Mochi resembles the taste and texture of the Chinese butchi which you can order in every Chinese deli. For the price, it is a little expensive compared to the freshly cooked butchi but readily available if you crave for the same taste. 

Will I buy next time? Yep, for the taste and how  convenient the packaging plus the kids liked it. 
Have you tried this product? Your verdict?  


MOM 24/7 2014 Planner

Yesterday I got a text from Manong guard that a package was waiting for me here at the office. My Mom planner from The Mommy Journey  which was my prize from her blog giveaway several weeks ago came at the right time. 

My lovely Mom 24/7 planner with psychedelic print.

I was so excited to browse all the pages of the planner and checked on the birthdates of my family members on which day it fall to. 


Another nice thing about this planner is has this several discount coupons which a Mommy can avail and purchse item with discounts. 
I have a co-worker that is preggo right now and gave her some coupons which she can use to buy at SM malls or even at Harbor Point mall. 

My girl started to doodle art on some of the pages 💖
