It’s not complicated: Online Shopping at ZALORA~

I’ve been working in the call center industry for quite some time now and the usual sentence I hear in the floor is “I don’t have time to go shopping”. That’s why business minded agents usually bring brochure or clothing in the office to sell to the busy body agents.  I can’t blame them, night shift takes a bit of toll and most of the time, day becomes sleepy time.

What comes to my mind when I hear the word online shopping? Not that much actually but here are a few after coming across ZALORA:

Is it a legit site?
100% legit as it can get. ZALORA is Asia's leading online fashion destination.

How to find what I need?
It’s easy as 1 2 3. You can type in the search bar for what you’re looking for.
There are also categories for each type of items you can purchase and on the left side you can filter the items per category

Example for Clothing: T-shirts, Polos, Button-Downs and etc..
You’ll also find the Fiter by Size, Price, Brand and Color splendid which makes it absolutely easier to find your best fit may it be for your Budget or Taste!

How do you pay?
Here’s the most sort out question amongst everything else. It’s amazing how the site values security and the worries of shoppers. Just in case you don’t want to use any of your credit card information. You’ll love the fact that CASH ON DELIVERY is available. There’s a 30 day free return policy and anything worth a thousand of purchase is automatically shipped for free.

Like Zalora on Facebook, you might get a chance to win on some of their promo for free shopping. Just enter the promo code and voila!

Tips: If your're a first time shopper use this voucher code ZBAPZm2 and get a 15% discount off your first purchase.

Will it fit me?
This shouldn’t be much of a worry since you can return the item if it’s too big or too small but just to be sure you can always go the help part of the site and click on the “What Size Should I Choose” option. This helps you convert sizes from international, uk, us and so forth.

Delivery TimeFrame?
2-3days within metro manila and 5-7 days outside manila. Base on experience though i got my order the next day i order my items. Nice right?

Here’s what I got for myself, my dad and my father in law ^__^
All in all, my entire first ever experience with online shopping has been incredible thanks to ZALORA and If there’s any down side to it, it's that you can easily get addicted on how fast and convenient it is to shop when you’re tired and just want to lay down in the sofa or bed but want to get in with fashion.

Importance Of Play To The Holistic Health Of Children.

When we hear the word "Play", the word "Fun" follows but there is more than that. It is through play that much of children’s early learning is achieved.

I must admit, I let my kids play with smartphones. But aside from games I mostly install educational applications on my phone, in fact, that's how my eldest learned his Alphabet.

Their toys aren't fancy in fact some of them aren't really toys like empty ice cream container, Jollibee bucket, papers and a lot more. We make the most out of what we have. My eldest who is 5 years old would build a city using this pieces of materials. They also have building blocks, toy cars, story books and crayons.

#healthishappening: The 21-Day Healthy Habit Challenge

Unilab Foundation is Challenging all Netizens of the Philippines to a 21-Day Healthy Habit Challenge. Because building a healthier Philippines starts with you, as you create small but sustainable changes for holistic well being.

Photo grabbed from UnilaUnilab Foundation's Facebook Page

This is actually a Volunteer Project that aside from helping us become healthy individuals we also get to be rewarded, in this way more will be encouraged to participate.

I volunteered and accepted the challenge not just for myself but especially for my kids, I believe I owe them a healthy living. For that I vow to make health happen by creating healthy habits. As a full time mom it is my duty to introduce and instill healthy habits as early as now while they are still young and be their role model and hope that they carry it as they grow up.Actually, I already started with the challenge since October 7 and so far enjoying it that I decided to also post it here on the blog.

Anyway you too can Join the #healthishappening movement and here is the Full Mechanics:

1) Sign up for an account OR login using your Facebook account at

2) Go to the Volunteer Projects and click "Volunteer" at the #HealthIsHappening Volunteer Project.

6) Upload the photos to your album so people in your Facebook network know what you’re up to – and give you words of encouragement. You can also "nominate" or tag them so they can also start their own healthy habits!

Back To Blogging, Hopefully

After a very long hiatus, here I am back to Blogging once again. You don't have any idea how much I missed doing this! Ever since I can remember I have this passion for writing, though I admit I am not a really good writer. I used to love writing letters to my friends and parents when I was still young, I have my personal journal way back High school and early College years. When Blogging started to surface on the internet I became interested and began micro-blogging on Facebook and Tumblr. But at that time, my studies was my priority so I only Blog once in a while. 

Then I became a full time mom, spending all day long in the house with the kids, watching TV, socializing on my Facebook. But my social media usage cranked up a notch when I began joining online promos, reading different Blogs of known and successful Bloggers. My passion for Blogging was then again reestablished, so June of last year I started with this Blog while I was pregnant with my youngest.Then I stopped after giving birth, because it's not easy blogging with 2 little kids, a baby and without a household helper. Just imagine all the things I have to go through everyday. 

Actually I tried, I had several attempts to Blog but I haven't even finished typing the title something would suddenly come up, so I have to stop. To all who know me well, I love joining online contests and I also stopped for the same reason. But eventually I still find ways to participate in some contests but not blogging. Because in all honesty there are times that I feel like I can't come up with something even though I want to and it's just frustrating. It really is! 

But here I am again, trying to make a comeback and it's all because I once again got inspired by a post of one beautiful Mommy Blogger Topaz Mommy, she's indeed a very honest and excellent Blogger! I like reading here Blog so much!

I Blog not to impress nor to compete my way up to the top with all other Bloggers, I am way far behind them. Like what I always say, I am not a good writer but writing is my passion. I am not very vocal so I tend to write it all down. Being a full time stay at home mom with kids as my companion most of the time, being in a new environment with my parents and friends away from me, and technology as our only means of communication I find Blogging a way for me to express what I feel. This is my own personal space where I can rant and rave about my journey towards motherhood and anything in between. 

Having a huge number of followers is too much for a Novice like me. But having few who would gladly read what I have to share and relate to it would be really awesome. 

Hopefully, I'll be able to find more time to Blog. Dear Lord I ask for your guidance. Amen!
