This is how every Mom and a Woman should fight!

When we are in pain, we should deal with it. Cry if we have to. Find ways to recover. If you need to go out and be alone do it.

How to fight back?

Love yourself more! Make yourself free from any stress. Bring your life back like when you don’t have a family yet. Start eating healthy and bring back the sexiness in you.

Go get some exercise and make yourself exhausted but with purpose. Stay sexy in mind, body and soul.

Most importantly, pray fervently. Pray, pray and pray. If you are asking yourself why, you are not alone. Many women cries all night and facing struggles. But they are choosing to be silent and praying to God for guidance and strength. Talk to the Lord and ask for strength and guidance. We cannot do it alone. We need someone who can understand and listen to every words we will say. Pray for those people who have hurt you.

Have fun and go with your friends more often if you can. Spend time to laugh and forget whatever problem you may have.

Go and do something you love and make yourself busy that way you forget all the pain you have. Like doing your craft, going back to your hobby or going back to school but don’t forget to laugh.

Do not dwell on the past. Let go and Let God.

Forgive and forget. But don’t forget to love. “If You Really Love Someone, You’ll Never Stop Fighting To Make It Work”. Love will always be worth fighting for.

Bellatrix’s Glutathione and Collagen Review + Giveaway

Thankful to Bellatrix Neutraticals for sending me sample caps for me to try their product named Glutathione and Collagen capsules. Let me just kwento why I decided to accoept it and give it a try.

What is Glutathione and do we really need it?

Glutathione is the mother of all antioxidants. Meron na tayong Glutathione sa ating katawan which consists of the following three building blocks of protein or amino acids ; cysteine, glycine, and glutamine. Which means isa sa siya sa mga important antioxidant to prevent diseases, not just making you beautiful yet it helps you to stay healthy. Syempre we wanted to prevent aging although we can get it by eating those sulfur-rich foods. We need glutathione because it recycles antioxidants. Important din siya for detoxifying toxins sa ating katawan because master detoxifier din siya. It protects our cells and makes our metabolism works well.

What is Collagen and why our skin need it?

“Collagen is the mostabundant protein in our body, it gives structures to our skin, bones, muscles and all other connective tissues.”

As we aged, our body produces less of it kaya yung wrinkles and fine lines are visible. Kailangan talaga natin yan not just to improve our skin’s elasticity but it can improve our sleeping problem, it can strengthen our joints and helps in weight loss as well.

What are the benefits of Glutathione?

  • Reduces oxidative stress
  • Reduces cell damage in alcoholic and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Improves insulin resistance in older individuals
  • Increases mobility for people with peripheral artery disease
  • Reduces symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
  • May reduce oxidative damage in children with autism.
  • May reduce the impact of uncontrolled diabetes.

  2. Taking oral supplement that supports collagen production and glutathione.
  3. Drink plenty of water.

Advantages:

  1. Q90 GPS Smart watch is a kid friendly gadget that kids will loved it.
  2. Compatible on android and iOS.
  3. We are able to download the tracker app easily.
  4. Parental control function that we can set up no disturbance of time during classes so kids won’t play.
  5. Real-time location tracking.
  6. Low radiation that can protect children’s eyesight.
  7. It is water-proof that kids can wash hands while wearing it.
  8. We can shut it down remotely.
  9. We can send hearts to our children as their reward for doing chores at home or by just doing any good deed.
  10. Geo Fence function for setting safe areas for kids and it will alarm once kids go beyond that area.
  11. SOS function works well.

  13. Variety of colors to choose from. Pink, orange, black and light blue.
  14. We can save more contacts in case kids cannot reach us.
  15. There is QR code to scan using the IMEI.
  16. It has taken off alarm, anti lost and battery low alarm.
  17. Accommodating Customer Service Support every Monday to Friday.

Disadvantages:

  1. Although this watch is waterproof it cannot sustain too much water exposure.
  2. Only 24 hour format and 12 hour time is not available.
  3. Battery life is low. It gets empty fast that needs to be charged everyday.
  4. Most features won’t work if sim card has no credit and since Globe yung free sim, always dead spot here at home.
  5. No headset input
  6. Making friends function won’t work if GPS watch is not the same as Q90.

Rátings:

3 out of 5 stars. Yes it is functional and useful like tracking their location real time and we can talk to them during break time yet we need to have them reloaded daily so kids can use all features. If no credit available, the only way you can use it is by calling them. So I think it is necessary to have load as well every time they are away from us. Mas okay ang GPS watch compare sa mobile phones na bulky 😁. Let’s stay connected with them while their still young para masanay na sila mga mommies diba? And maituro sa kanila yung value ng constant communication. Communication is a crucial way to ensure we build an ongoing relationship with our child.

How to save more effectively?

Another new year to start and more Filipinos are now starting to be more educated when it comes to saving, may it be for their kid’s education, travelling, emergency funding, etc.

I’ve been doing this kind of technique for almost five years already and it is helpful for me and my family. I am using this kind of envelope which I bought in National bookstore for P300.00 pesos only. I like it so much because it is divided and portioned accordingly. All i need is to write my own list of what to save or spend.

This year we have a lot of plans and to make it easier I am now saving little step at a time. Is it possible or achievable? Yes. But might be for some this can’t work but somehow might help.

  1. I started to list down all our monthly expenses and see what we don’t need anymore. Good thing of one of our account in Smart bro has ended. We chose not to continue since we already have 2 more subscriptions active. This saves us 1,000 a month din.
  2. Lessen the use of air condition, other electric appliances and doing my laundry every three days. It serves dual purpose, helping our environment and savings costs.
  3. Had our water pipe checked and do some repairs. This saved us 900 this month.
  4. We limit dining out and if we do, we make sure we are putting into saving what we paid for. “Gastos mo, save mo thing”! ☺️
  5. Buying in bulk saves a lot. Not just your time but penny as well. We love buying bulk meats in Landers Store kasi fresh and maayos ang packaging.
  6. More gulay for kids and fish. As usual I am prepping them baon. I encourage them to bring water instead of buying juices sa canteen.
  7. Will have to say NO to “Sales and discounts”. Tempting yes pero it’s worth your money if avoiding ka muna to shop. Parang learning to delay it.
  8. Just like the past years, we never use a credit card. We have a budget for everything and live with it. If my children want something, save for it. Pag kaya na ng budget nila, they can use it na.
  9. No impulse buying. Gamitin ang calculator ng mobile phones para malaman ang costs para hindi sobra sa budget.

What are we saving for?

Emergency funds – this is now a must in every household. We’ll never know what will happen eh. These funds can be use if you lose a job, family member’s illnesses and major repair sa bahay. Saving for our emergency fund is achievable because this is short term goal.

Tuition Fee – for a family with 3 little children, it is best to save now rather than not. We are still discussing if we will get them Sunlife VUL. 50,000 these days ay mabilis lang para sa tuition fee ng mga bata dba? So what me and my husband do, every month we shed a budget for it. Perfect for June’s enrollment this year.

Life Insurances- my husband is a bread winner, he chose for me not to work so I can take care of my children full time 😅. Mabigat din ang premiums mga momshies, so again, we are setting aside budget for these. We have Sunlife, Philsfirst ( car insurance) and Axa. Sunlife and AXA are VUL type which has insurance and investment linked already. Sadly, malapit sa disgrasya ang asawa ko so don’t missed getting a motor vehicle insurance. Sunlife and Axa are for retirement narin and considered as a long term goal savings. Huwag tayo mag hesitate kumuha ng insurance, it is a must now!

Travel fund – and because life is too short and as part of our goal to have more quality time for our children. It is best to plan and save ahead for our trip this July in time for our son’s birthday. Saving for your travel fund can be an option.

Mutual Funds– another kind of investment, what I like with mutual funds, you can withdraw your money once you decided na ayaw mo na. Pero unlike sa bank kasi it is earning, and we call it compounding interest. Hindi natutulog ang pera sa mutual funding. Pero be aware on where to invest. We have our MF sa Sunlife kasi they have Fund Manager that monitors everything. And it helps if consistent ang communication mo with your FA.

Miscellaneous fund- funds will go to paying debts (onti na lang at tapos na kami), therapy session fees of my child, emergency cases like hospitalization, etc.

My daughter and youngest son doesn’t have HMO at the moment. Yet, planning to get them prepaid HMO immediately.

What else we have budget for?

Tithes. Hindi ito pwede mawala. We are allotting money every time we go to church. God bless us in many ways, and walang costs yun kung ilan. Yet we should give Him na hindi rin mabilang and na maluwag sa ating kalooban.

Dogs – yes some might react why we have budget for them? They are not just pet but we are also an Alaskan Malamutes breeder. So we need to take care of them, and feed them right and minsan we are setting aside yung thinking na pang- business lang sila. They are all part of our family. Soon they will have puppies that we can sell.

Utilities- electric, water, telephone, cable , and house rental bills. We can always save din naman when it comes to consumption. Whatever the excess, we save it to add to the next billing.

Food and grocery – it’s our basic needs eh. Grocery with your check lists and as much as possible no kids with you haha. Kasi nawawala sa circulation ng lists. What I do, I always jot down if ano pa ang mga supplies we have para hindi maulit bilhin. Huwag mag grocery ng gutom.😅

Fuel and car maintenance budget. Part ng expenses yan lalo if may car kayo, having a vehicle is also an investment. Though mag- depreciate siya at least napakinabangan mo naman. And that can be your asset.

Property or House Budget – we are aiming to purchase a bigger lot this year na sana matuloy. 🙂 yes we are setting aside monthly para achievable naman ito by the end of the year.

Christmas/Birthday Budget – hindi naman sinasabing must pero as we all know malaki ang nagagastos during these occasions. We are not fond of throwing big parties sa mga bata, we just ask them what they need or want and ang importante they are having fun. And December, most awaited time of the year, mahirap mabigla sa expenses pang regalo so better save ahead kagaya namin para swak lang ang perang gagamitin.

Lahat ng excess sa sweldo like holiday pays automatic savings yan pati ang 13th month.

Kaya natin yan mga momshie, kailangan lang talaga isa sa ating magasawa ang may discipline 😅. Sana makamit natin ang finacial freedom this year 🤗

Kayo how do you save? Share ninyo naman baka may mapulot din akong aral ❤️
