MomBrandLove: Little Luli

MomBrandLove is the newest category on this blog. This is in awe of mompreneurs who lovingly put a lot of effort in their business along with juggling tasks for kids, husband, the home and everything in between! I hope that my blog will be an avenue for other moms to discover mom-made products. Moms support moms, yeah!

I remember a 2 year old Z only wanted to wear a gray shirt with blue trimmings. I will have a hard time letting him wear another shirt. So, most of his pictures then were him wearing this shirt. I don’t have any problem with it since the shirt was soft and goes well with anything. He’s still got that similar shirt in a bigger size to this date! This started our family’s love affair with Little Luli clothing.

If I remember correctly, I discovered Little Luli at a bazaar in Babyland. I didn’t have a baby girl back then but I bought a dress for my niece because the material was really soft and the designs were playful but not over the top. And when I had Y, that’s when the fun started! Most of her #ootd’s on Instagram is from this mom-run brand. My kids are really happy in them.

When the dress got shorter, her mom just made her wear leggings! Little Luli clothes can grow with your child 🙂
We still use this up to now!

I’m amazed at how Lucien, creator of Little Luli, has managed to evolve the brand while being hands-on with her 2 boys. The brand is now offering accessories for both boys and girls (you’ve got to check out the Lego bow-tie!) and a crown-making booth for parties (which was a hit for the young and old during Y’s first birthday party!).

Y's first necklace is made from scrap cloth. I also used this, hehe!

It's also my default go-to gifts! My friend's daughter wearing a collaboration between Little Luli and My Globe Trotters. This is a reversible dress which makes it a travel essential for kids!

Clearly, I’m in love with the brand. And I’m excited for what’s in store for it (matchy-matchy clothes? new collaborations? tops and dresses for moms?) Hooray for local brands that make clothes shopping for kids a breeze!

The stylish and superduper nice Lucien :)

Make Every Day Special with FlowerMore!

It must be the age or the season of life I’m in, but I was surprised at myself for wanting flowers for Valentine’s Day. You see, I was never the flowers and chocolates type of girl. I was more of the bucket of beer and sisig type, which made the husband fall in love some 7 years ago, haha! But yeah, this year I wanted to receive flowers and flowers I received. Thanks to Flowermore!

Flowermore was an idea born out of love (literally and figuratively) when Didoy would send his wife, Mayi, flowers every week since they got married. It did wonders for their relationship and hoped that they’ll get to inspire more couples to be more showy about their love through flowers. Their online shop offers flower arrangements for any occasion, including weddings and parties. With just a few clicks, your orders will be delivered to your special someone, hassle-free. Some may think this is a bit impersonal, so for that added touch, a special handwritten note is included in the arrangement.

On my wishlist ;)

What makes Flowermore different from the other flower delivery services is that they offer scheduled deliveries of flowers, so you don’t miss out on any special occasion! How many guys have dealt with their ladies’ wrath because they forgot their anniversary?! With this option, you’re sure to leave a special mark on your loved ones. You’ll also be the one to set the budget for each delivery. There’s no excuse to miss out on a special day, ever again!

November Round-Up

Hiiii! Can you believe it’s the last month of the year already?! *inhale, exhale*

Sharing with you some stuff I discovered and currently enjoying:

Cusina Dishwashing Liquid

I’m always on the look out for products which offer a safer choice for the home. Such is Cusina Dishwashing Liquid I got from Expo Mom (The folks from Strollin’ In the City sent me a box to try too!) We’ve been using it to wash the kids’ eating utensils and toys so I’m confident that there are no harmful chemicals. Cusina uses the tea tree and eucalyptus to fight off bacteria but still being harmless to us. The Grapefruit Lemon variant is so pleasing to smell!

Cusina comes in 3 refreshing scents: Grapefruit Lemon Zest; Ginger Yuzu Peel; and Lemongrass Citrus.

They are superrrr cute!!! I’m making it our adventure to collect all 50 and look for the ultra rare gold ones. Is there a trade group in the Philippines?! Yes, I’m addicted haha!

Malagos Chocolates

I might be a bit late to the party but this is the only time I liked dark chocolates. Z loves it! And I read that their tablea is great for making champorado, perfect for the brrr weather (which is when, exactly?!) I’m so happy there are local products which are doing well internationally like Malagos 🙂

Binondo Pabili

I’ve never been to Binondo and I don’t have plans to go (sa SM nga I faint eh, dun pa!) but the deals there are unbelievable! Sally, the owner of Instagram account Binondo Pabili is heaven-sent! Just viber her what you need, and voila! She’ll shop for you and send it to your doorstep. I’ve asked her twice to shop for gift-wrapping needs and transacting business with her is a breeze. Thanks, Sally!
