So, what you probably don’t know is that for the past 4 months, I have been religiously paying my Pulmonologist a weekly visit because of uncontrollable asthma and shortness of breath. Other than diffusing & topically applying my essential oils, I’ve been on the look-out for other natural, cleansing and healing remedies to help alleviate my asthma and chronic rhinitis. A fairy godmother from @shophimaph sent me this pretty pink package as an early Mother’s Day present with the most unusual (but cute) contraption; a Himalayan salt inhaler! As you may already know, Himalayan salt not only provides amazing natural healing properties but also has a relaxing and soothing affect in our bodies. (Don’t worry, I didn’t know it isn’t just for seasoning steaks up until recently, either ! 🙈) - Initially, I tried sticking its wide tip up my nose and attempted to suck in all its glory, 😂 turns out, you’re to sip it like a straw and inhale the salt vapours from the chamber. I have been using this nightly for a week, especially at when I’m left short of breath from a tiring day of unpacking and I can honestly say, it has helped catch my breath when used for 15-20 minutes of deep inhalation. If you’re looking for a way to de-stress, or cure allergies, a cough or nasty cold, check out @shophimaph for more details about their products. Beautifully curated pink salt gift packages are available too and would make perfect presents for Mother’s Day! 🌸 .

Wait, don’t worry!! I’m actually not giving you the finger. 😂✌🏻Just showing you guys the coolest new toy, @fingerlings, finally available in the Philippines from @richwellclubph! This adorable little pet monkey sits snuggly on your finger, loves to play and gives lots of cuddles. Check out our video! My girls are obsessed! 🤪

First time in a long time I was able to spend a full day at home just tidying and organising our new home. It was also a great opportunity to play Barbies and steal some down time to do nothing with the girls. Alex the artist insisted we each make a picture out of froot loops cereal and other scraps. When we were done, she said, “I have a great idea. We can exchange and give these to each other...” That’s just brilliant, Alex! - And so we did... 🌈 (📷: #reginaalexis)
Is this avo thing you ever wanted on your toast? 🥑 I found this gem in my photo stash from last year. I made it back in August for @breakfastmag’s back to school issue. It’s still one of my favourite cute dishes to date! 💚 #oooooohhhh

Hooray for Alex and her first experience as a member of @mcdo_ph’s kiddie crew! She learned how to pour drinks, organise ketchup packets and serve both dine-in and take out orders. Here she is on the job as she mistakenly handed me a Coke float that wasn’t mine... Meh, tough job but someone’s gotta do it. 🤣 #lovekoto
Hey, Monday... You stink! 💩
No longer a figment of her imagination. Unicorns are real and rainbow is actually a colour. 🌈 @rainbowchildrenmnl .

Warning: long post for kikay girls. If you’re kikay and you’re a girl, then read on: 
The past month has been crazy busy in preparation for our move.  When you’re running around like a headless chicken, it is an absolute God-send when you find quality products that play a huge role in making your (crazy #af) life much simpler. 🤪 Most recently, I’ve come to appreciate smaller bags because of my bad back, but with small bags, come #smallbagproblems. Luckily, @jujube_intl’s #jujubebeset works as my girl scout kit where I toss items I need throughout the day, but don’t need to lug around when I run to the bank or hardware store... If you’re nosy like me and like a good snoop in people’s purses and makeup kits you’ll be interested to read on for my list of essentials; 1) @maccosmeticsph liptensity lipstick in medium rare (I just bought this baby pink shade this summer to match my blonde locks. I love it’s semi nude/sheer hue. 2) Powerbank 10,000 mAh in Tiffany blue, of course 😉 3) @happyskin_ph #skipthefilter oil blotting sheets, well because oily skin and this sh*t is awesome. 4) A peppermint essential oil inhaler (the purple thingamajig). I suffer from asthma and peppermint gives me instant relief when I get an attack. 5) Mini @jomalonelondon fragrance in Lime Basil & Mandarine that I received from @pattylaurel’s baby shower last February. I freaking love it. I can also spritz it on the hubby and teen boy too, when he is beginning to smell asim. 6) @thefaceshopph blotting powder for touch ups on the go. 7) @trinketfarm hoop earrings that go with everything. There are days I run out of the house bare ears, so these babies save what could potentially turn out to be a blah outfit and make it somewhat presentable. 8) Lastly, reward tokens as an incentive for good behaviour on-the-go for my toddlers. These lucky charms have saved me from countless cat fights and tantrums in public. 👍🏼 You gotta do what you gotta do.

What are your essentials? Do you keep everything in one bag or are you like me and keep an extra stash in the car? Would love to hear your hacks and tips! P.S. I’m obsessed with this set, I had to say it! If you want one, check out @ceoemporium! 💞
