Fun Birthday Celebration

My Birthday Celebration 2018

Sweet Hello Everyone!:)

I can't believe that we are on the second month of  year 2018; and realized how long its been since the last time I posted on this blog. It's amazing how time just flies! Anyways, aside from being super busy with kids; which are both very active on their own respective sport choice. I also work more hours now. It's more on time management I guess- I always make sure that my family comes first;  always spend quality time with them. With that being said; As busy as I am right now, I will still find time to do my blog and keep it updated :)
Show me that happy smile guys! and let's get started on my birthday celebration escapades. It's a little late, BUT hey " better late than never" So, here we go.

Birthday is all about celebrating blessed year with your family and friends. If you remembered my Birthday Celebration: Chicago weekend getaway. Click the link HERE. I'm so blessed and grateful that I have awesome family and friends whose always there to make my day an extra special one (not only on my birthday but everyday) Super Thank You to all of you!:)

My birthday celebration started with great breakfast. Yes, I made our delicious breakfast as my treat for my loving family. It was delicious! Then, we headed to Red Velvet Cafe where I choose my birthday cupcakes and favorite bubble tea ( one of my favorite place for cupcakes and bubble tea )

We then decided to have dinner at Bonifacio. Yes, I love Bonifacio! As you may remembered my last year blog post Birthday Celebration: Chicago Weekend Getaway. Such a perfect place for modern Filipino cuisine experience. Yummmo! We had Lumpia Shanghai, Lechon Kawali, Sisig Taco's, delicious drink ( totally forgot the name of it ) and of course Halo-Halo for dessert. Indeed scrumptious!:)

Few days later after my birthday, one of my close friend visited me and brought delicious food, scrumptious cake, and my favorites. Yum!! It was such a treat seeing her. Thank you, Baye:)

That's not all.. my family set up another birthday celebration where we celebrate our birthday's together. It was so awesome!

 We all gathered at my sister in-laws house (Sommer's residence) to celebrate my birthday, Kindra (sister in-law) Mom Cheri (mother in-law) and Fusako. We had chicken noodle soup, mashed potatoes, corn, peas, bread, green salad- and ice cream cake. You guess it right!? It was really FUN birthday celebrations.

.. and that's how I celebrated my birthday. Indeed a moment to remember for lifetime! I would like to say "Thank You" to my family and friends for all the love and sweet greetings offline/online, for being so generous, and for making my day a very special one. I LOVE you all! 

I hope you have fun reading my first blog of the year. Keep that sweet SMILE always and stay gorgeous!:) Until next time everyone :)

Lets all grab a piece of  this Desserts on Us - Milk Chocolate Macadamia Cookies- the combinations of  rich macadamia wafers  sandwiched by smooth silky milk chocolate. Yes, this gourmet dessert taste so unique and so addicting. The combinations of texture, flavor, and right sweetness from milk chocolate complements each other. That makes this Desserts on Us so amazingly good! It's my family's favorite cookies and must-have sweet treat for sure. I highly recommend this to everyone. Yum!

Next on the list is one of my family's favorite candy- this Black Forest Organic- Sour Heads gives you that mouthwatering sour fruitiness flavor using organic natural ingredients. It's sour, sweet, chewy and delicious. My kids prefer to snack this Black Forest Organic- Sour Heads after school, on the-go, after practice, picnics, and much more. I personally love this candy!:)

This is my first time trying out Liquid Ice - Energy Drinks and I'm loving it. The color blue drink look so appealing and cool. It taste so good that I don't feel like I'm drinking energy drink. This stuff taste amazingly good and I personally love this product. A must-try indeed. 

Next on the list is this Vive - Hangover Prevention. This product prevent your hangover, wake up fresh, and free. This is so perfect for upcoming holiday celebrations, family gatherings, and parties. Simply mix 1 Vive with water ---> party responsibly ---> wake up hangover free. How awesome right? Parties with family and friends this holiday season is going to be hangover free with Vive.

This is my second time trying out Prince of Peace - Lemon Ginger Honey Crystals and I LOVE this product. The Lemon Ginger Honey are my favorite ingredients. It comes with individual packets which makes it very convenient to use. I love having tea every morning especially if its Prince of Peace - Lemon Ginger Honey Crystals- it taste so good and perfect for tea lover out-there. 

Napz - All-Natural Sleep Solution is great way to have onset sleep at night, middle night awakenings, and for a longer nap. Napz contains Chamomile, Passion Flower, Lemon balm and Hibiscus. The combination of these herbs calm your mind and body to induce sleep. It's all-natural and does not have side effects of many prescriptions. If you need a longer nap and onset sleep think of Napz :)

If you love hot sauce or wanted to try new product this Fix - Signature Sriracha Hot Sauce was AWESOME! It adds flavor and bring your favorite recipes into next level. A little touch of Fix- Signature Sirracha Hot sauce onto our breakfast burrito taste so scrumptious. A must-have pantry item in my household for sure. 

You all know how excited I was when I received a Mirabella Beauty Glisten Eyeshadow from last month's Daily Goodie Box. Check my review HERE. Now, the excitement were doubled I received two amazing beauty products on this month Daily Goodie. Yippeee!! Lets start with Mirabella - Black Magic Marker Eyeliner - this eyeliner is LOVE its very smooth on skin, easy to apply, and great for everyday wear. A must-have to all beauties and make-up lover out-there. I personally love using Mirabella Beauty Glisten Eyeshadow and Mirabella - Black Magic Marker Eyeliner- they compliments each other and the results was PERFECTIONS! I totally love this product and I highly recommend this to everyone.:)

Beauties, check this Pure Cosmetics - Pure Illumination Light Up Lip Gloss- Beautiful conditioning lip gloss with a natural-based formula and LED-lit applicator and chic side mirror for easy application on the go.
