Women achieving their goals, independently having the world go round on her palm while keeping her competitors at their toes, have a secret - an arsenal to battle every Tom, Dick and Harry out there.

You see, when you are a girly girl but one of the boys, you gotta look like a girl, think like a man and act like a boss.

Running an entire house, running behind a butt-naked toddler, and running on a work deadline is like running under the red traffic light - I have to keep up on my game. Press the gas pedal harder (you can't turn back now, you're in the middle of the intersection), pray (that you would not hit on a hot motorcycle excited to cross before the green lights on), hope (that no CCTV camera is installed somewhere nearby, or worse, a hidden MMDA officer seeing everything insight with a grin upon his face), and have faith (that the auto wouldn't overheat, no tires would go flat and that you gas up enough fuel, you would not go empty).
See? It's hard to live a Bonnie and Clyde lifestyle of crime, so I don't. But the suspense, the thrill, when you are a woman, is the same.

Hello! My name is Gerilen, work at home, mom to toddler and newborn, exclusively breastfeeding without pump, and no nannies - welcome to chaos!

The world is nuts, my sanity should've left me the moment I became a mom but it didn't - that's how weird Mother Nature is. Sh*t? Seen in, smelled it, touched it. Is that why the things that didn't kill you will make you stronger?
Maybe, because like every smart chic in town, I have secrets. Arsenals that has been passed on generation by generation, women to women.
It's not just schedule, women called it night rituals and morning routines. It's a lifestyle and we breathe by it. And when you have more shoes than your feet, morning routines and night rituals aren't enough. There are things you should schedule on a longer pace, because you can't let the donkey stride like an elephant, can you?
If you want the usual shot (morning routines and night rituals), get out of here, and search on YouTube. There are tons and tons of videos you could play everyday for the rest of your life.
But If you're looking for that special ingredients to make your mechanism run the world, (or if you're just nosy, I don't mind) then read on...

How to sustain and maintain the relationship with bloggers? 5. How effectively can convert likes into sales?

Why Social Media Marketing is important. Social Media Marketing is the process of gaining website traffic or engagement or attention through social media and usually center on efforts to create content that attracts attention and encourages readers to share it across their social networks thus produce engagement with the company expectation to convert the engagement to
share via the Internet (e.g., blogs, social networks like Facebook, Twitter, sales. The resulting electronic word of mouth refers to any statement consumers Instagram, instant messages, news feeds) about an event, product, service, trusted, third-party source, as opposed to the brand or company itself, this brand or company. When the underlying message spreads from user to user or becomes viral and presumably resonates because it appears to come from a form of marketing results in earned media rather than paid media.

Versatile MakeUp!

My Versatile Makeup includes:
  1. SnoeBeauty What's Up Brow! Tinted Eyebrow Pencil Wax in Ochre - a dual ended eyebrow pencil with a spool brow brush to create fuller looking brows. Plus, I use this too on my waterline to create a soft line around my eyes. Sidenote: SnoeBeauty is a proud Filipino brand.
  2. Aritaum StylePop Juicy Tint in Red Mango - I try to skip full on swiped lipstick as it smudge with my baby's mittens, clothes and face. This lip cheek tint let my tired face looked a little livelier and refreshed without over doing it (full on lipstick does that sometimes). My cheeks turned a slight flush of color, hiding my anemic lack-of-sleep aura. Benetints are bootlegged big time with this Korean brand!
  3. Hand cream - Be it Baies Sucrees Sweet Berries or Real Moist 24 Hand Cream Manuka Honey - this are not just hand creams, this could also be used as lotion on dry patches (elbows, knees, ankles) on the spot!
Yup, just this three. I'm lazy for press powder and I usually don't do touch ups. You could also add an oil blotting paper (for frugal moms aka Starbucks napkins), a travel size perfume and while at home, don't forget to swipe deo on both pits (that just takes 2 seconds each) and to make the face bearable without a pound of primer, concealer and foundation, use Dove on face. Hate lotion after shower, use Dove all over. ;)

Reva Flip Flops and a Teal Surprise!

I used to love heels and wedges, but ever since the babe started running, got pregnant again, and now nursing a wound (hurray for  cesarean section - it's a way to save angels!), I exchange my stilettos to comfy slip-on shoes! And mind you, my latest find made me a bit more crazy than usual!
It's the Reva Footwear! This is worth the rave because of it's simple designs and comfort. I prefer comfort than style when it comes to footwear - so this brand is something that delighted me. It really is promising, plus the fact that it's not just good on my feet, it's good on my wallet too!
What's in my Reva Footwear shopping bags? :D
Well, the babe helped me out on carrying the bags so... Thanks babe! The paper bag was crumpled but no damaged good! :) Chores for toddlers? Here.
I got these flip flops on sale!
I love the flower fringe and the white polka dots!
The teal surprise? This.
The details are good. The linings are nice and white dots? Yes please!
Why does these mint green soles reminds me of an ice cream flavor with chocolate drops? I must be famished! I guess I have to end this post already!
Oh my! Now you know my size! :D

Empties: June 2015

Saying my adieu to July also meant saying goodbye to these products - loved and used up to the last drop! <read in a sexy  savvy cheapskate voice - if there is any>
Johnson's Baby Powder (in classic white) - There's a lot of Johnson's Baby product on this month's empties just because we tend to open up a new bottle when we can't seem to find the tiny little bottle.
Ladies, say hi to my littlest Jerson.
High Desert Bee Propolis - this is one of the reasons I regain my strength and mobility sooner than expected after my emergency cesarean section. It helped on healing the wounds inside. Though I'm not fully healed, some of my ladies are in awe that my 3-week old newborn and incision had been able to travel to Batangas - to get sunshine! More of this here.
Dave on his Halo Sleepsack!
Harvey Fresh Juice (Apple and Orange Juice) - I just had to share this here because we are absolutely in thirst for this. Not so sweet, and a healthier alternative than soda. Pass the Harvey please.
Cure Natural Aqua Gel - Last sachet before finally opening up my bottle! Thanks Ms. Nikki of AskMeWhats for these!
Dynapharm Goat's Milk - this is a yummy way to eat calcium, if you're bored in drinking cow's milk.
Kojic San Skin Lightening Soap - contains high-grade all-natural kojic acid that helps in preventing melanin production, making skin lighter, clearer and brighter. This effectively helps in reducing dark spots, drying out acne, lightening stretch marks.
Johnson's Baby Cologne in Mild Dew - that reminds me of my elementary days. Thanks to my mom!
Avon Naturals Kids Body Wash and Bubble bath in Magnificent Mango - I love the smell. Perfect for summer! I would definitely get this again because I love smelling my little boy's hair when he's asleep.
Milky Aquafresh Milk Teeth Toothpaste with fluoride protection - has 1000ppm of fluoride. This is a gentle fluoride toothpaste for 0-3years old. Just a dot on the tip of the brush is enough to clean baby's teeth. Adult supervision is a must to avoid intake of this toothpaste.
Johnson's Baby Bedtime Powder in purple (lavender scent) and classic white - these are local residents of our baby's bag!
Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner - 1song = hair soaked in conditioner ^__~
