Call me Queen B and I welcome you to my little kingdom


Call me Queen B and I welcome you to my little kingdom. I am the queen of our home and I take control of my life. I love my life and I want to share it with you.

Yes, affirmation is an important factor. I declare myself a queen, not because my husband made me his queen but just because I say so. But do not worry, I will not treat you as a subordinate. On the contrary, I am at your service as I share with you how I stay on top of my game. My life has undergone a lot of changes over the past years. After graduating from school, I landed a fulltime job, met the love of my life, got married, moved to a new home, became a mother, and gave up my career in the corporate world. Yes, I went through so many changes in barely a decade. But I can proudly say that through it all, I am the queen of all the seasons of my life. I chose to reign supreme over all matters affecting our daily life.
I believe that life should not be complicated. There is a solution to every problem. I know some of you would raise an eyebrow and say that it is easier said than done. But believe me, if we say this to ourselves long enough, then we can achieve simplicity in life.

Simple does not mean you do not go all out for your hobbies, holidays, makeovers, or whatever you feel like doing. Simple means taking it easy. Fewer complications, more fun, right? And that is how we should live our lives. Let us not make life any harder by doing things the hard way. There are life hacks to make things a little easier and help is always on the way.

Thoughts On Motherhood

Thoughts On Motherhood

I am getting a bit sentimental and emotional. My little one just turned four the other day and I am one of those parents that ask themselves how come the years passed by so fast. I just feel that it was only yesterday when my daughter was a tiny baby lying on my chest or trying out her tiny steps along the hallway. Now, she is no longer a baby. She has grown so much in a matter of four years. She is an independent kid who speaks her mind and knows what she wants, well most of the time anyway. And what breaks my heart a little is that she no longer needs me 24/7. And I know soon enough, she would have her own world and I would have to let her go. Last week, we went school hunting and a teacher invited her to see the class. She excitedly pulled out of my grasp, waved goodbye at me, and wanted to send me off already. I feel like I am not yet ready. I told her that once school starts, I would bring her to school and pick her up after her class. She said she just wanted to take the school bus and I was not allowed to go with her. It is quite ironic, I know. Although I am proud of how independent she is, a part of me wants her to say she still needs me around. I kind of miss being everything she needed. Yes, motherhood is tough but this girl somehow made it a little bit easier. I may be emotional now but I am also excited for the days ahead when she starts with her new school and meets new people. I just know that she will shine. I have to prepare myself to share this bright little girl with the rest of the world.

How Motherhood Has Changed Me (Part 2)


Forgive me for being sentimental and pensive for the past few weeks. I hope you will allow me to share more thoughts on motherhood. It is just that I feel like you are all my friends and you would understand how I feel. Do not worry, I have product reviews and DIY ideas lined up for the week so we should get back on track in no time.

I rarely have time to watch the news and today was one of those rare occasions that I finally had time to drink my coffee while watching the morning news. And I regret it! It made me paranoid. There was a kidnapping case and there is no update yet regarding the girl’s location. And there was another case of mass shooting in a school. I mean, what is happening to our world? There are crimes everywhere. How can we even feel secured amidst all these crimes happening all around us? It is especially tough for parents. You are almost reluctant to let your children go out of your house to play outside or spend the night at their friend’s house.

I guess this is one of those occasions wherein I can say that motherhood has changed me to become a different person. I have become so focused on ensuring the safety and protection of my little one. You can bet that I would do whatever it takes to shield her from any kind of harm. But I also know that I can only do so much. In the end, I have to let her go so that she can experience the world. But I tell you, my mind is never at peace until I see my little girl tucked safely in bed.

If only I were a real queen, I would make sure that peace and security reign in our land. But I am just a mom and all I can do is pray hard for my family’s safety every day.

How Motherhood Has Changed Me

Motherhood has changed me a lot.

I used to never leave the house without makeup on and my hair done. I used to wear the trendiest clothes and most fashionable shoes. I used to buy all the makeups and skincare products that they promote in the market. I used to love collecting designer bags and perfumes. I was also usually traveling or having fun with my friends in bars and restos. Come to think of it, I think a huge chunk of my salary was spent on travel, clothes, shoes, bags, perfumes, and makeups. And if I only knew then what I know now, I would have just saved all that cash. But do not get me wrong, a part of me is also grateful that I got to experience those things at some point in my life. I am grateful because I could say that I enjoyed those moments to the fullest. It is just that I am a changed person now. You would no longer see me in bars. I would also be fortunate to have taken a shower within the day so that also means makeups and hairdos are also out of the picture. I prefer baggy clothes and flat shoes because they are much more comfortable to wear and more suited to my lifestyle. I also rarely go on travel nowadays or if I do, I have a little kid in tow along with my husband. So, that also limits the places we can go to because first, we have to check if the place is kid-friendly and if the travel would be comfortable for our little one. Also, my designer bags are now stuck in the closet. I now prefer carry all bags or big diaper bags so that I have everything I need with me wherever we go. Yes, there are so many changes but I love every part of my life now and wouldn’t trade it for anything else in the world.
