Holy Macaroni! It's almost Christmas

What? How? When? Why? 
It's almost Christmas you guys! It's crazy!!!!

SO every December, our Elf Tim with a new pal The Grinch comes and visits us to watch over the kids and they can report back to Santa if they've been naughty or nice. 
CHRISTMAS is my favorite Holiday ever! So I plan our month with some family activities 
and yearly Holiday Traditions. 

I am not the best baker. But I try to have with Raine during the Holidays and bake some yummy cookies. We also started creating peppermint popcorn with melted chocolate on top.
It's actually really yummy! Lol. Just thinking about it makes me mouth water. 

Planning out activities always help.
And i've discovered and started using a new planner. 
It's called the JIBUN TECHO and I am really loving it. 
It has a Weekly Vertical Layout and Some Monthly pages too!

It's like my favorite Hobonichi Planner but what's missing is the daily layout. 
i am still undecided which planner to use for next year. I am so torn between these two planners
but I will definitely update and late you know what I end up using. 

Hope your December is doing great. I hope you're well and enjoying this beautiful Holiday Season.

It’s Fall Season once again. and I am just so excited about it. 
I love everything Fall. The weather, boots, scarves, sweater. 
The pumpkins, tress changing, and all the cute critters and characters I draw.
And speaking of that, I made something special for all of you.

37 Years Blessed on this Earth.


I am.

Grateful for this journey. 
For all of my blessings.
For all my successes and my failures. 
For the roads I traveled on may it be easy or hard.
For all the good and most of the bad.
I’m glad they were there. Or I wouldn’t have made it here. 

I am grateful for all the laughters and tears.
The memories of my yesteryears.  
For all the pain I went through and the hope I held on to.
For the people I’ve done wrong - and for the ones who made me strong.
Without you, I would have never found my place where I belong.

This is me. With a smile, I embrace all my battle scars.
This is me. Still often feel like a distant star. 
I am confident that I can still soar
But did I just locked all the doors?
‘Coz Lately, dreaming feels like cheating
Unsure if i’m content of this role I’ve been given.

But why must one quit the game? 
Would you rather be safe or labeled as Insane?
I know I would choose the latter coz I’ve always fancied Mad Hatter.
And remember what Alice once said, “We are all mad here!” 
So I shouldn’t have fear but why does tomorrow look so unclear?

I’ll just yell it, scream loud and shout.
All my dreams, my fears, the good, sad and bad.
All these battles, my victory, defeats and all of my doubts
My past and present, and for tomorrow and the person who I’ll be.
All of these? All of it! This is me!!!

Free Cute Fall Phone Wallpaper

Hey Hey Hey!!! It's Fall Y'all!
Get your phones ready freshen up with some new
and cute Fall Wallpaper. 

What does "Happy" look like to you?

Are you happy? If so, What does it mean to you? 
Have you ever asked the question to yourself,
"What is it that I really want?!"

I have. Many times. 
And mostly, I noticed that my answer was always about others.
My Children, My Parents, My Husband, And My Family. 
Please don't get me wrong.
I am not saying that it's wrong to find your happiness through others.

But, what about you? What do you want??? 
My Husband always ask me this:
"If you do not have us? just take us out of the picture. What is it that you want?"

Believe me when I say, it's not an easy question for me to answer. 
I still sit and ponder on this.
Why is that you may ask? I think it's because It's how we were programmed.
The pattern of society. How it was induced on us that if we seek for our personal desires
it's considered being selfish. UGH! That guilt 😢 

But why do we have to feel guilty? We shouldn't. I shouldn't. YOU shouldn't. 
Don't you think that if you are completely, truly happy and fulfilled
that it will cause a domino effect in your family? To the people around you?
And It will. 

You are teaching your kids (if you have any) and others, that happiness starts with you.
And it starts with knowing what it is that you really want
Your passion - your heart's joy. 

I found my passion through music and arts
And I've been so blessed to be able to connect with a lot of people through 
these gifts. My talents. I found my purpose. I found my "HAPPY"

I realized that I am most happy when I am serving my purpose.
And that purpose is to inspire, to create music, and to bring colors to other people's lives.
I am Happy when I am being creative & when I am being real & vulnerable. 

It may sound cheesy. But I am sincerely happy when I am in service to others. 
When I make someone smile, and laugh. 
And my greatest passion is for others to find their own. 
To help them create their own happiness. Wether it's through my music or my art. 

A wise man once said:

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If youhaven't found it yet, keep looking."
-Steve Jobs

Life is too short. And no one is too old to go for their dream.
And live their best life yet. 

I've been singing and making music as long as I can remember.
It has been and always will be the biggest part of me. 
Even when I ventured and became an entrepreneur, I was still singing. 
So what does that tell me? And where will it lead?

I am still taking things One day at a time. 
Every day is a journey. 
But I am happy. Completely.
Because I am living a life filled with purpose. 
And every single day. My hopes are to inspire and to lift others up.
You my friend. 

I hope that you have it already or that you may soon have your "happy" too!
I am cheering on you!

Arteza Real Brush Pens: My first thought & opinions!


I woul like to thank the kind people from Arteza for sending over these markers for me to try. 

I will be honest with you and let you know that I was first hesitant and skeptical 
about this company. I've been seeing their ads all over my social media feed and  didn't know if they were just a scam! Or one of those companies where you will get what you've paid for. 

But when their representative contacted me - I kept an open mind.
So far, i've used their Premium Watercolor Set and these Real Brush Pens. 
And I can totally say that they may NOT be the VERY best in the market,
but the products are actually very comparable and can be a great competition to the leading brands out there. I am also happy to know that there are some companies out there that
are creating great products without breaking the bank. 

You may Find this set on Amazon.

My Ultimate Favorite Pen Ever!

This pen right here.
This is it. 
This is the beginning of my addiction.
But after hundreds and hundreds of pens.
This still reign the King. 

Even before the brand approached me to be an ambassador for them, 
I was already sharing this with everyone who ask and everyone who wants to know. 

This is the TOMBOW FUDENOSUKE hard tip. 
It is my no. 1.
I am not over exaggerating when I say that 99% of my purses has to have one of
these pens inside. 

I use this with lettering. With doodles.
With simple writing and everything else in between. 
This is the Blue One which is the harder tip. 
I love this than the soft because I feel like I can get better control
with all my thick and most especially think strokes. 
If you ever decide decide to try it, one tip that I can share with you
is that do not be afraid to really press on the pen.
You need to give a good pressure to get your thick lines. 
I also suggest practicing in a smoother copy paper. 
The one I love to use is Hammermill Color Copy Paper
It is 100% Brightness and the paper is just amazingly smooth.
And I do know that it's not hurting the nib of my pen. 

How about you?
Do you have a favorite pen?
I'd love to know which one. 
Please don't hesitate to share the link down in the comment section. 
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a good one!

My 1st graduate

Mixed emotions.
My first princess is now a highschool graduate.
Now officially a young adult.

So proud of her. All her accomplishments.
All her ”trying” and building character. Hehe.
It’s all that teenage life. 

We were so happy to have my aunt come over to celebrate with us. 
Stayed with us for a couple of days - it was short but sweet.

My dearest one,
It’s time to spread your wings, fly and rule the world.
We love you. We wish you many adventures and a fine journey.
Remember that your home is with us.

My Boy


Zyon. 12 years old. Going into 7th grade.
Loves playing with his Friends on his PS4.
Loves his dog Winston.
He tried Football, Basketball
and now he's thinking about tracks. 

Quit his piano lessons but still plays. 
He just finished a song he wrote that he will perform
in his school's Talent Show. 

A little Bit of a Show Off, LOL! Most of the time Disoriented. 
I blame it on Puberty. Hehe.  But the most important of all. is that He has a big big heart. 
And to me, that's all that matters. 

Brooklyn New York

Brooklyn, NY.
It looked like a scene from a movie.
Coming from the Philippines, And being in Brooklyn for the 1st time is like walking into a music video.

I was in awe looking at street art everywhere.
It seems like it has it’s own charisma, beauty.
Old infrastructures, dirt, homeless people out in the street all of a sudden seemed like they all fit.

It was cold. But I think the streets were colder.
I was afraid. I think that’s the best description of my feelings. I didn’t go anywhere other than the event i’m speaking at. I ordered food and had it delivered. 
I enjoyed Brooklyn from my room.

But you know me, I had to take advantage of some amazing street art. So I walked a couple of blocks and snapped some pictures.

I had an amazing time with friends though. There’s a small bar/karaoke At the lobby of the hotel. So the girls & I had fun... 

The next day, our sweet friend Raquel took us to her favorite cappucino place in Brooklyn. It was sooooo yummy. 

That same day was the day of the event and it was loads of fun... I sponsored a table for the planner girls. I Made sure that it’s all packed with all our Mommy Lhey goodies and well... decorated to the brim too! 

We had a few hiccups with our workshop. There was no overhead camera and a lapel mic. So I was having some difficult time. But over all I think it went really well. But you know what was The best part? Aside from having the chance to spend time with friends, I actually gained a whole lot more!!! 😍

Have you ever been to Brooklyn? Any special memories there. I’m planning on coming back when it’s not so cold and I will explore it next time.

Brand New Year

It’s 2019. What? How? It’s so crazy fast. Don’t you think so too! Or am I the only one who feel like time is not as long as it used to be. That maybe we are not really living 24hrs a day anymore. It feels more like 18hrs now. Aaaaaaaaah. It’s so crazy. Or maybe i’m just really getting old. Pffft 🤣🙈

So... 2019. Am I ready for  it? There are moments when i feel like ROCKY and SO ready for my big fight. And then there are those moments when I feel like a turtle that just wants to hide inside my shell. 
It’s so weird really. 

But I have big hopes for this new year. I can’t say I have big plans though. But I have a few I guess - just ideas, wishes, and dreams. No concrete PLANS. I’ve never been great at creating one. I always wish that i’m better at it. Maybe it’s not too late. Maybe I can still make one. The one. Hmmmmm....
