The Crazy Popper-Gourmet Popcorn & More

I’m not a big popcorn fan. In fact, the only time I eat popcorn is when Sean and I go out and watch a movie or when we take the kids to play bowling. I don’t really eat popcorn that much, well not until Sean found out about this popcorn store place called The Crazy Popper. He brought home some bags of delicious popcorn in different flavors last week after work. He brought home a creamy dill flavor, a chocolate caramel and nuts flavor and a Tuti Fruiti flavor. Today we stopped in for a few minutes about an hour before they closed for the day and bought 2 more bags with different flavors than before.

They have over 40 flavors of gourmet popcorn to choose from. And to be honest, they’re so good! Besides popcorn, they also offer old fashioned sodas and nostalgia candy. They accept phone orders and can ship nationwide. Guys, you need to check this place out and try their popcorn if you haven’t tried yet. You’re going to love it as much as I do!

Hobby Lobby Deals Alert

I’ve been really busy since this morning. Today was the first day of school. Thankfully my boys didn’t have any hard time waking up early this morning because to them it doesn’t matter if it’s either school days or non-school days they’re always awake around six in the morning. Even during their whole Summer vacation it still seemed like school days for me because of their early rise routine. Unbelievable? But yes it’s the truth.

When I got back home after dropping my kids off at their school this morning I rested for a while and had a cup of coffee. Then I prepared lunch for my kids. By 11 in the morning, I drove back to their school and drop their lunch at the front desk. I felt like a busy bee flying around. Hahaha

I drove back home again and multitasked for a while. I was doing laundry, eating lunch and having plenty of thoughts racing through my mind. After having my lunch, I decided to edit some photos on my computer while waiting for the laundry to get done. When all of a sudden an idea came to my head…..DING! I’m guessing you know what’s the idea on my head already.

I went to my favorite store, HOBBY LOBBY. I was thinking, there are so many merchandises on 50% off, what should I purchase? Haha. Yay, these are my favorite kind of deals. I took a few photos to share with you guys. Hobby Lobby not only has a 50% off deal but also a 40% off deal. And if you like buying Christmas decor early they have them out now.

A Little Gardening Afternoon + AZUL COCONUT WATER

Hi guys, how’s your weekend so far? I hope everybody is having a good weekend. About me, I was a little tied up all day. I went to the mall and bought some back to school clothes for my boys. After that, I drove back home, did a little cleaning and a little organizing in both of my boys’ rooms. Once I was done there, I did the laundry too (it’s laundry day), Friday laundry!

After Sean’s work, we went to Wal-Mart and got some landscaping bricks and bags of soil for my little garden. By the way, the bricks are on clearance for $1.00 each. I told Sean that this is the best time to buy bricks. Whenever we decide to move somewhere, we have bricks for gardening, Hahahahaha sounds funny? Well, I’m serious!

KALABO (Philippine Oregano)
Kangkong (Water Spinach)
Malunggay (I transferred them to a bigger pot).

After working in my garden for an hour and a half I was really thirsty. I’m introducing my newest favorite drink. Not just my favorite but also Sean’s. It’s the AZUL COCONUT WATER from Dollar Tree. This drink has chunks of coconut pieces in it (which I love the most!)

Back home in the Philippines, we always drink coconut juice anytime it was available or offered to us. I’m not sure if you’re aware of it or not but coconut juice has a lot of health benefits to it. If you’re not aware of all the good benefits that coconut juice can give to our body, then it’s time to do a little research.


  • Reduce blood pressure.
  • Support heart health.
  • Prevent kidney stones (very true, I experienced having this problem at such a young age. Drinking coconut juice helped a lot).
  • Have antioxidant properties
  • Have benefits against diabetes.

Coconut water is a great way to rehydrate after working out or after gardening, as I did. There are many more health benefits of coconut water which you can read about here.


  • Chill and shake well for better flavor.


  • Yong Coconut Water
  • Water
  • Sugar
  • Coconut Meat
  • Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose
  • Malic Acid and Sodium Metabisulphite
So thirsty after working in my little garden at the backyard.

Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed weekend!

Restoration Park: Walking In Nature With My Family

It has been a while since our family went walking on trails at a park. So, the other day we went to Restoration Park, in West Monroe, to try out the trails there. We started out at 6:00 p.m and finished a little after 7:00 p.m. Restoration Park is located in 700 Downing Pines Rd, West Monroe, LA 71292. This park was a former strip mine converted into a wetland habitat. Gosh, it’s beautiful out there!

It felt so good sweating while walking on the trail. The humidity wasn’t bad at all by 6:00 p.m. Also, I was so proud of my boys. They were very well behaved from start to finish. And guess what? The one-hour walking helped them slept all night.

Usually, when you go walking you feel tired at night. But it wasn’t the case for me. I couldn’t even remember when was the last time I ever felt relaxed until that evening after walking.

There are numerous physical and mental health benefits of walking. I noticed that every time we go out for a walk it helps me relax all night. Not only that but also helps me think clearly. I’m not sure about you, or how do you feel after taking a walk, but it helps me feel healthier. Walking with my family is a very good idea. Aside from just having company with me it was also a time to bond and see the beauty of nature around us. How about you? Do you prefer to go for a walk alone? Or with family?

REVIEW: Clarifying Kaolin Clay Face Mask

It’s has been two months since I started using this Clarifying Kaolin Clay Face Mask and I’m really impressed with this product. I remember before I even used this product there were times that my face gets a little oily. Nobody wants an oily face. I know I don’t.

One day while grocery shopping at our local Walmart store I decided to check out some facial masks at the cosmetics department. At the corner, there was a table set up with lots of skincare products on sale and one of those was the Clarifying Kaolin Clay Face Mask. I was debating at that time whether I should get it or not. Well, obviously, I ended up getting it which I’m grateful that I did!

This face mask not only purifies the skin. It also helps absorbs excess sebum. I love wearing makeup and we know that liquid foundation and other stuff that we applied on our face can possibly cause clogged pores. This mask can help with that because it decongests clogged pores. Another thing why I love using this product is because it’s very gentle to my skin and doesn’t cause any redness. After rinsing, my face feels cleaner, softer and smoother. And by the way, this product also helps if you have an acne problem.


A purifying mask for clearer, smoother, looking skin.
Naturally-detoxifying Kaolin Clay draws out impurities and excess oil while Cactus Flower and Willowherb Extract keep skin hydrated and calm.


After cleansing skin, apply an even layer to face avoiding the eye area. Leave on for up to 20 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry.

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday. About me, I’m grateful to God for everything today.

Today, I am just going to share my number one and all-time facial skincare products from POND’S (you can find them at your local Walmart store). I started using POND’S products back when I was still in the Philippines over ten years ago and I fell in love with it! I experienced great results using these products since then, so, I am not looking for a replacement at all.

How I Used Them?

I applied them on my face and neck twice a day alternately. Example: Today, I applied the Clarant B3 on my face and neck after shower or cleansing and before going to bed. But you can use it daily though. I just preferred using it every other day. By the way, Clarant B3 is a dark spot correcting cream. The following day, I applied the Rejuveness Anti- Wrinkle Cream. It helps tighten the skin on your face for firmer younger-looking skin. One solid reason why I’m sticking to these products.


  • Ideal for normal to dry skin.
  • Dermatologist tested.
  • Won’t clog pores.

CLARANT B3 is formulated with vitamins B3 and C. This daily moisturizer evens skin tone in 2-4 weeks and visibly diminishes the appearance of dark spots (that’s why I love this product).


  • Dermatologist tested.
  • Won’t clog pores.

REJUVENESS is formulated with AHAS (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) and COLLAGEN. Visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in just two weeks, leaving skin firmer and younger-looking. You can apply this product twice daily.

If you haven’t used any of these two products from POND’S yet, you should probably give any of these a try. And when you do, I would love to hear your feedback.
