Online Shopping Series: Ilog Maria Honeybee Farm

Ilog Maria Honeybee Farm was one of the first brands I reviewed in this blog almost seven years ago. I remember someone gave my mom some Ilog Maria products at the start of her tree-hugging phase, so the next time we went to Tagaytay, we made a trip to the Ilog Maria farm in Silang Cavite.

I was amazed at the range of products available and how the Magsaysay family, the proprietors, made a conscious effort to be really one with nature, and not just talking the talk for the sake of marketing. Years later, it's nice to see that Ilog Maria has maintained its under the radar operations, preferring to stay small in an effort to maintain the quality of their products and, more importantly, to not tax the environment.

Babymooning at T House

Babymoon or weekend getaway, whatever you call it, the hubby and I were raring for some respite from the summer heat and some R&R before the baby came. I signed up for the T House deal from Deal Grocer and it included an overnight stay for two, dinner, breakfast and massage. Mmmm...

Dove Real Beauty Sketches

I never grew up feeling I was beautiful, smart, yes, but beautiful never. I was skinny and pimply, with a wide forehead and a pango nose. And when I started wearing glasses, my mom lamented that I now had to hide my one true beauty.

Babymoon Dreaming

I have officially 1 month to go before Bean's due date. It's also very possible that I can give birth in the next 2 weeks at 37 weeks, and Bean would already be considered full term. In short, I'm gonna be a mommy very, very soon. Eeeep.
