Chubz and Mimi’s Candy Shop Review

Last Father’s Day, my sister Hiyasmin Neri gave my husband a cute gift as a token of appreciation for being the dad of her two cute nephews. It’s a customized candy bar by Chubz and Mimi’s Candy Shop:

I thought that it was so cute and creative. I remember seeing similar customized candy bars in one of the stalls in Newport Mall‘s Mother’s Day Fair. I decided to check out their Facebook Page to see their product list and prices. I’ve been thinking of ordering chocolate bars for my bunso’s Dedication Day. I thought that instead of the usual trinket giveaways that will eventually end up forgotten (or worse, in the garbage bin), my guests will surely appreciate a yummy chocolate bar to take home that will remind them of my cute and sweet baby.

It was so easy to order from Chubz and Mimi’s Candy Shop. I dropped them a message through Facebook and gave them my order. I ordered 100 medium-sized local chocolate bars. Each piece costs Php 23.00. If you check out their page, you’ll see that they also offer imported variants and bigger sizes. They then asked me for my baby’s picture and the design I wanted. They took care of the layout and sent it to me right away for approval. I just asked them to tweak the font a little bit. They were super nice and polite in accommodating my requests. The final design looked like this:

I met up with the owner’s niece at a nearby mall to pick up my order. The transaction went smoothly. The chocolates were placed in a well-packaged box with bubble wrap. She reminded me not to put the chocolates in the fridge since it could mess up the print if they get wet.

This is how the giveaways were displayed during the reception:

I am super thrilled that my family and friends really liked their chocolate giveaways. I even saw some of them eat their candy right away even before they got home (lol)!

I recommend Chub’z and Mimi’s Candy Shop to all the moms and dads who are thinking of the perfect giveaway for their parties and special events.

Aveeno Baby Cleansing Therapy Moisturizing Wash (Review)

My toddler is allergic to peanuts, eggs, cotton fluff and dog/cat fur. My son’s allergy doctor told me that he should bathe with unscented soap and use unscented shampoo and that we should not use scented fabric conditioner. Perfume is not allowed either. She recommended Dove soap or Perla. I used Dove soap on him and he did not develop any reactions towards it. He smelled good even after a whole day of playing. However, I wanted to use something else that’s specifically made for babies. Since I also have a one-month-old baby, I wanted to use a product that both of them can share.

My husband bought the Aveeno Baby Cleansing Therapy Moisturizing Wash from the Johnson & Johnson store (since he works there) and I tried it on my two children. It is quite expensive at Php 300+ for 236ml (8 fl. oz) but I think it’s worth it. A little goes a long way! The consistency is creamy, and it you only need to use one to two squirts to clean the entire face and body. I also use it as a shampoo. I also like that it is fragrance-free, dye-free, and alcohol-free.
It moisturizes as well, so I did not need to put lotion on my toddler’s skin (which is a good thing, since he’s not allowed to have lotion either). This product is Made in the USA, so it is assumed to be a high-quality product. It also claims to be pediatrician recommended and it is accepted by the National Eczema Association. I also use this on my one-month-old baby, and it is gentle enough on his delicate skin.

Would I recommend it? Yes. Would I repurchase? Yes!

Have you tried this Aveeno product, mommas? What do you think of it?

Scripture Swaddles: LukieBear Baby

I had just received a beautiful present from a very good friend, and it’s called the LukieBear Baby Scripture Swaddle. I am a fan of muslin cloth for babies because it’s made of 100% cotton. My one-month-old loves to be swaddled, and this was the perfect welcome gift for him.

He doesn’t seem to be very happy in this picture but I swear he was in a better mood after being swaddled:

Check out the LukieBear Baby Essentials IG. I love that they put beautiful Bible verses on their blankets. Children, after all, are a gift from the Lord.

Earth Mama Angel Baby

Do you know where I can buy Earth Mama Angel Baby Nipple Butter in the Philippines? I bought this at Buy Buy Baby in the U.S. and I’m almost out! If you’re a breastfeeding mom, I’m sure that you can relate to having soreness after a full day of feeding your baby. I like that this product is organic, non-GMO, and super-effective! I like this better than Lansinoh. If you know of any sellers or stores that carry this product, please let me know.
