Review: Tiny Buds After Bites - Natural Itch and Scratch Gel

Rainy season is here once again and this is the time when I am always alerted with the surroundings because mosquitoes and other insects are feasting. I always make sure that Railey is protected any time, any day. So I always change sheets often, keep on cleaning  and cleaning and always on the guard with what to spray and what repellent to use among others. 

But I'm no superwoman. There are still those pesky insects that always escape my eyes. When that happens, I always noticed that baby keeps on scratching more often than before. So to lessen the pain of scratching and to calm  the itchiness in his skin, I always use This Tiny Buds After Bites Natural Itch and Scratch Gel.

The packaging was super cute! Actually, baby always like playing with it whenever he sees it. The light blue color and the kawaii penguin was very pleasing to the eyes.

I bought this using a coupon from the brand and it didn't disappoint. Definitely a repurchase on my list!!! 

The consistency is a gel-like texture which is very light. I used it myself and I can attest that it's really mild that it won't sit heavy on the skin. Plus factor because baby didn't noticed that I put it on his scratch. He has the tendency that if I put lotion or other stuff that feels a little heavy on the skin, he will rub it off. 

It really does what it claims! It calms down the itchiness. It even worked on my own itchy skin  Same with baby.  There's no sticky feeling of some sort. I noticed that after applying it on the area where he's scratching, he would stopped and would focus on different things instead. Seriously. It's just like magic.

Our whole experience with this product is definitely  something that we really want to share with our readers. It might help you in case you have the same case like what we had. I really swear by this and would definitely put this as a staple product for baby and the family.

Though I claim this to be super effective for us, it might not work for some. Remember, YMMV (your mileage may vary). What might work for us, might not work for you and vice-versa.

Have you tried this product? What are your thoughts?

Much Love, Mommy ❤

Food Corner: Limone

It was a rainy Sunday morning when we started our second day of food crawl last July 21-22. That's two days of full tummies and happy hearts. We gained new friends and experienced new food during the event. It was at Limone where we started fresh new memories of food and laughter.
The vibe inside gives the feel of being in the Mediterranean countries. I haven't been in one but this place will surely make you go to places.
Eating at Limone is like visiting all the Mediterranean countries because every dish has its own story to tell. What great at Limone is that most of their food are home made like their homemade sauces, breads and house blend iced tea.

Chicken Gyro - a traditional Greek dish with traditional meat and potatoes inside. Others restaurants don't put potatoes in theirs. Ingredients are wrapped inside their own pita bread. Served with two sauces, the regular sauce and the spicy one. 

Beef Kebab with dip - this was served hanging in a food tree (I don't know how it's called) Anyway, this was served with hummus and pita plus their own eggplant dip and two sauces.

Seafood Marinara - Now we're in Italy and this Italian pasta was served with
fresh ingredients and served with their own homemade bread. They're very generous on those seafood. 

 Hummus with Pita Bread - this is a Mediterranean appetizer made from chick peas. This is what most people are looking for in Mediterranean restaurants. 

Moroccan Chie Tagine - now we are in Morocco! Tagine is like a vessel where you can cook the food where the flavors are deeply penetrated. This container is like a steamer because it steam all the flavors inside. The flavor of this dish is the traditional Moroccan because they use their Moroccan spices.

... and of course, no food crawl is complete without... DESSERTS!

Salted Caramel Turtle Pie - my personal favorite! This has a well blend of caramel and chocolate which I love! 

Banoffee Pie - this is one of the desserts they are proud of! This is at par on those Banoffee Pie at dessert cafes.
Overall, our Limone experience was truly one of a kind. We get to explore the Mediterranean through food and the best part of it was it was celebrated with true and new friends.
Limone is located at the Nepo Quad.
Much Love, Mommy ❤

Baby's First Ambika Experience

Few days before the school year started, me and baby had the chance to have some mom and son bonding. On that day, we both came straight from school to the mall because we had Brigada Eskwela that time and I was bringing him all along since we don't have anyone who'll look after him.
