My sweet girl; the one with the tenderest heart, the widest imagination, an abundance of soul and the most colourful personality. She is more than a pretty face; she has mountains and rivers flowing through her. She radiates love and compassion. Oh Alex, you hold the title of middle child to a whole other level, yet you make motherhood so incredibly rewarding. I prayed so hard and so long for you and repeatedly reminded my self of God’s plan; 6 years of complications and 3 fallen babies later, I mastered the art of patience and understanding, then you came- my rainbow girl; bringing nothing but sunshine, colour and everyday adventure into my life. You make our lives beautiful. Happy birthday, Regina Alexis - “For this child I have prayed, and the Lord has granted the desires of my heart.” 1 Samuel 1:27 I am so honoured to be your mother. #alexisfive

Awkward smiling because happy hour began at 10 am with @hendricksgin and for the first time, I wasn’t the only one drinking. I was like, “huwhaaat?!?” #cheers 😂 Actually, I had a spectacular time spending my morning playing princess dress-up and ogling over stunning fine jewelry pieces at the @kathyandkathybespoke private showroom. Never in a million years  did I ever see myself finding fancy in fine jewels, but @collabcontessa knows me all too well. Each @kathyandkathybespoke design is one of its kind; hand crafted with its unique lady in mind- carrying its own story and whimsy. Kathy and Kathy’s vision to fuse sensibilities of the present with sentimental past of the Filipina, sets this brand above the rest. @kathyandkathybespoke wishes to preserve the fine art of handmade jewelry with an advocacy to give back to the community through the Sinagtala Project which offers assistance to the less fortunate, by providing a learning opportunity to discover and revive the fine craft of handmade jewelry making... Yesterday’s festivities was proof that shopping and pretty things never fail to bring ladies together. 😍 If you’re now admiring my earrings & pendant or caught my Instagram stories, you were probably shooting heart eyes too, but do not be tempted to show up at their showroom unannounced. Set an appointment and get ready for a jewelry experience like no other. All the pieces showcased are there for your inspiration - so I encourage you to share your story and create your own piece together with the minds behind this amazing brand. I cannot wait to pay another visit and finally custom-make my own keepsake to share with my daughters. ✨ .

When all your kids are compliant to taking a photo, you just snap and pray to the selfie gods that everyone looks alive, awake and the least bit human! 📸 #snap
Here are more snippets from Alex’s LOL Surprise birthday celebration yesterday at school. All your dm’s about the turn out are much too kind. I have only amazing suppliers to thank - more so now that they made me look like a party-styling genius. 😂 I always push for small group celebrations, this way I can ensure my kids and their guests the yummiest food and desserts, the most enjoyable games, prizes and loot to bring home. Thank you so much @nadinescakeart for making Regina’s neon cake dreams come true, @thelittlewhiskph for edible works of art that looked like real, live LOL surprise dolls, @partytimephilippines for supplying our “Dawn” piñata and LOL themed balloons- it’s all in the details. 💕 @partycraftessentials for the handmade string bags with faces of our favourite LOL dolls, my new pal @maddie_and_macky for sourcing the divisoria for our party loot in the wet, soggy rain, @bentoholikat for our themed bento meals that made snack time with 15 sugar-hyped kids a breeze, and of course @thewhiteboxph for our party decor and genius photo wall! Thank you to our in house, face painter, John Medina who made our toddler’s dreams come to life. The celebrant was blown away! She was the happiest girl in the world for a whole 2 hours! Happy advanced birthday to my baby! #alexisfive
The highlight of yesterday’s classroom celebration was our guest face painter, John Medina who’s creativity knew no boundaries. Here is Alex’s #LOLsurprise arm tattoos that she customised during the process of him drawing. 😳 Swipe to see more of our favourites! #alexisfive

Alex was counting the sleeps leading up to her baking lesson with @nadinescakeart. When classes were cancelled yesterday, I messaged Tita Nix and begged her to come over to keep the girl busy. 🤭 Thankfully she gave-in (to my slight demands) and came totally prepared with fondant, sprinkles, coloured frosting and her own premix of eggless cupcake batter because she knew my girls would be licking the bowl in the process. Nailed it! 😛👩🏻‍🍳 #bakersclub #friendswhobake #luckyme
We finally caught the popular baking show @nailedit on @netflixph last weekend and now, we are hooked! 🎂 Since it was pouring yesterday, we invited @nadinescakeart to help us make our frustrated baker dreams come to life! Art and styling by none other than, #reginaalexis - #nailedit! 🤣 #bakersgonebake
Dearest Aurora, The day will come when you call your dad, “so not cool” and accuse him of never giving in to what you want. So here, I am documenting this morning’s shenanigans to prove that amidst your father’s Monday morning hustle, he mustered the time to help you raid my makeup stash, find the perfect shade of “brown lipstick” then applied it as evenly as he could- even before you took your morning pee. Well, aren’t you a lucky girl? 😉 #missauroralouise @tuyoandeggs
Pinky up! Pucker up! 💋 .

So, @pattylaurel sent me these photos from Theo’s birthday playdate last Thursday, and the weirdo moms in us couldn’t help but make up our own bizarre stories about the conversations we felt were going on through these (3 going on 43) toddler’s heads. I laughed so hard, I peed my pants. #ithinkwemaybetheonlyoneswhofindthisfunny 😂😂😂 If 45 year old Ali wrote to her beloved (friend): ❤️ Dearest Theodore, my man; I’ll spare you from the sappy because you already know my feelings. I make them clear every Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the car when we ride with our yayas to school. Thank you for your friendship, thoughtfulness and most of all, for never asking me about the contents of my bag. Another year older, yet I am still so incredibly honoured to be part of your special day as we celebrated with another epic bash with our nearest and dearest! Happy 3rd, Theo Filart! No words... No words. You know the rest... xx, Ali .
