Going Back to Old School Blogging

Dear Diary

So no more long essays on what I plan to do this year blogging-wise because I end up not following through any of them, mga beshies. How about I just do it instead of just reflecting on it, right? So for my first back-to-old-school-type-blog-post, here’s a random mundane delivery day to Retail Lab Powerplant Mall, where we consign our Rory & Sloan earrings, together with Selene and my sister.
I also changed my layout, friends! What do you think? Same blog post layout – just refined the homepage a bit. Nothing like kickstarting the year (and my renewed blogging spirit!) with a fresh new theme. I still want a major overhaul soon but am still searching for the web developer who gets my vision (and within my budget!). Let me know via email if you can help me!
This little girl insisted on coming along even if I wanted her to stay home so she could rest and study while I run errands. We’re leaving next week for her birthday trip so I didn’t want her to catch any illness or fall ill because she’s always out and about with me. But wala, she really wanted to tag along and help out in deliveries. Though I like taking her with me ‘cos it teaches her the value of work – that we don’t just grow money in our backyard and she understands why I say ‘no‘ to her if she asks me to buy something.
Receipts, receipts for the month-end tax deductions.
Our shoes for the day. She’s wearing a ballet flats pair from Zara and I’m wearing my trusty CMG mules.
Always the eager beaver – she wants to know what the receipts inside the envelope are for. So paano ko ieexplain?
Our second home has been Powerplant Mall. There was a week we were here for 5 days straight. Wheew.
Our Uber driver for the day. Uber over driving because the parking is such a hassle. There was one time I was looking for parking for almost 30minutes! Hirap lang sa Uber it’s been so hard to book a ride the past month.
Our little intern and her self-chosen outfit of the day.
Still Christmas at Powerplant Mall. Because how can they take down this extra Christmas tree in the middle of the mall?!
“Mom, I know where we’re going – Retail Lab, right? I know where it is!” 
Yup, this is us in the middle of the mall because she wanted me to fix her pigtails. “No bumps, mom ha?”
Ran to her Tita Raiz after I fixed her pigtails. “Hey Selene, we’re kind of matching. Look! We can do the twin emoji. Come!”
“Mom, Tita Raiz wants us to do the pose where we put our legs up but my panty will be kita (shown).”
Does it anyway (but not without lecturing her Tita about their panties hahaha).
The new Retail Lab at the renovated Powerplant Mall! Have you visited na, friends?
Checking our stocks and asking Joanna, our saleslady, which ones we’ve sold out on. Only a few left of our balls collection!
“Mom, I’ll just sit there and wait while you do your Rory & Sloan.. If you’re gonna cut something, can I be the one to do it?”
So proud of this little one for being patient. I think tagging her along to errands such as this ever since she was younger paid off. She knows how to sit and wait.
“Mom, let’s run! Faster, let’s run away from Tita Raiz so she won’t find us!”
I don’t know how I ended up here. – Me all the time when we’re in malls *sigh*
Trying to look for a light coat I can use for our trips this coming months. Buuut, the kuripot in me prevailed. “When will you use it? 2-3 times this year? Wag na.”

Merienda cena

One of our comfort food restaurants forever.  Their spinach dip is Selene’s first vegetable dish.
“Do you know that’s spinach, Selene?”
“What does spinach look like, Mom?”
Always on the phone.
Treating ourselves because we have a loooot of work to finish that day.
Thankful for Selene being independent so I get to eat my meal na warm pa! Hahaha. #TheSmallThings
Her reward for being a patient little girl.
“Mom when I’m 8 years old na, can you buy me this tent?”
Need to frikkin’ buy a powerbank na because I always lose battery when it’s time to book a ride going home.
Hope you enjoyed this little photo blog slash diary of our day. I hope to do more of these this year because 1. vlogging is just not for me. I’m still dyahe to talk to the camera when in public and I’m just not eloquent, hahaha. Salute to the vloggers talaga! Plus the editing is meticulous especially since my laptop is so slow na. 2. I want to look back on days like these in the future. The kids are growing up so fast and my memory is just not as sharp anymore. Hope to also hear more from you guys through the comments here. I miss the old-school discussion on comments! I remember really getting to know old readers before through it. So yes, here’s to blogging even if it’s proclaimed dead by the social media world.

    Hi Ms Shari, ano na ba ang mas trending ngayon? Doing reviews on YouTube, IG instareview, FB Live? For me, mas prefer ko ung magbasa ng blog post. Gaya nito, parang nakikipagkwentuhan lang at the same time may matututunan pa din.
    I think Selene will be a good and responsible one. Marunong syang makinig at talagang curious sya. At the same time, bata pa din sya, gusto pa ding maglaro, gusto ng tent.
    Buti ka pa, nakakasabay ka sa pagkain sa knina, naku ung 7yr old ko, need pang subuan tapos May 2 yr old pa ko. Kaya minsan hindi na crispy ung fried chicken ko eh, heHehe. Ganun talaga part of being mom. Anyhow, Advance Happy Bday Selene. God bless you always and alagaan mo si baby Tristan. Parating makinig May mommy at tita, pati na din kay lolo at Lola.
    Bihira kmeng magmall sa Power Plant, parati kme sa Greenbelt, Glorietta at SM Makati, kaya ndi ko pa nakikita ung Retail Lab dyn. Goodluck sa business nyo Ms Shari.

    Hi Ms. Shari,

    I still like reading blog than watching vlogs, kasi I can pause reading or viewing pics when there is paningit while on work or at home (kids as usual) when watching vlogs yun iba sobrang haba naiinip na ako hehe sa bahay naman malakas sa data nauubos agad yun monthly data allowance ko…
    I have learned to read blogs when I google-searched a beauty product to look for a swatch and review before buying. I only followed bloggers na simple and nice photos.
    I enjoyed your page Ms Shari thats why its bookmarked in my google account <3 <3 <3

    I love this post!! It’s so refreshing! Although I miss your makeup reviews na din 😉 Saw you months ago in Glorietta with Selene, and she was really behaved! There were a lot of people in the Activity Center, pero she wasn’t malikot or anything and she’s patient with shopping. So cute!!
