Updating the Project: Weeks 38 to 45 of 52

"My daughter's photos, once a week, every week, in 2014."

When I challenged myself to doing this because I love Bleubird's 52 Weeks so much (then later on found out about Practising Simplicity's, which actually started the premier of the now famous project, through Chasing Dreams'), it never occurred to me that I can be 12 weeks late! Gah! I apologize to those may be waiting for a photo of my little girl every week. Well, if you're always here and on my cyber sala (Facebook), you know that I'm super busy with Bebeng's Kitchen stuff. But I'm letting the Royal Help do some things for me first so I can do a massive update on this then maybe, just maybe, my brain cells will have the adrenaline rush and function super good that I can write more pending articles. I have soooo many kwentos to share with y'all, actually.

Anyway, let's start with —

The Little Cupcake's 6th Birthday Party

Wow. It's December 1st today and after two months, I can finally write about and share with you the photos of Pia's party in school. You see, I am now breathing normally. I'm savoring the calm days left before the Christmas madness begins. Actually, not days but few hours left. It will be mompreneurhood at its finest. Christmas orders, Pia's Christmas presentation and party, shopping, husband's holiday break, home decorating, and more. Whew.

OK. Back to Pia's party. She held it a day after her exact birthday. I thought of Sheriff Callie, icecream in a cone, and teddy bears as possible party themes weeks prior September 24th. Unfortunately, it was booted out by dreamy cupcakes when I envisioned what the kids will do and eat. So here are some photos and a little kwento.

Love how TS looked at her

Thank you, thank you!

So ABS-CBN always has this viral, tear-jerking, LSS-worthy Christmas station ID every year. This year is no different. It welled my eyes again and made me think of who to thank for this Christmas. But before that, if you haven't watched it, here

I Said Goodbye To Twitter Today


I did it. I have no other reason on as why I did, but this: I don't need it anymore. 

As a blogger, and in the blogging world, having a Twitter account is very important. Some brands and companies look at the number of your followers on all your social media accounts to check the "level of your influence". They do that for the money/products that they'd give you in exchange of writing/posting about them. Of course, they want to collaborate with who they think is influential, and thus, can help them market their brand. 

It's hypocrisy to say that I don't like collaborating. It's great to have partnerships with big brands and companies. Sometimes, that's what makes the bloggers feel that they already made it. 

I have a confession.
