Wall Candy Art Stickers

Babies grow up fast. When we decided to have the room of Zeeka fixed and painted, we had that in mind. Most of the thing that are in Zeeka’s room can be changed and adjusted to fit any little girls age. Of course, we wanted to customize, so what we did is we decorated her room with wall stickers.

I recently came across additional stickers that would look lovely in Zeeka’s room. I hurriedly stuck it to the wall, since I was so excited to see Zeeka’s reaction.

While sticking it, Zeeka kept on looking at me, then looking at the stickers then at me again (back and forth).

I visited the site of Wall Candy Stickers (http://wallcandystickers.com/). They have beautiful designs that yo can choose from. The idea started when a guy named Joe, who rents a condominium unit in Makati, wanted to decorate up his place. He was looking for an easy and cost efficient way to decorate since his occupancy is only temporary. His girlfriend, Valerie, on the other hand, had a cousin who recently gave birth and wanted an affordable way to decorate her baby’s nursery. They then thought of a perfect worry-free and low-cost solution which was to decorate the condo unit and the nursery using Wall Candy Art Stickers!

These stickers are quality adhesive wall décor that have passed European safety standards approved, are non-toxic and lead-free, and will not damage your wall or glass surface at all. They are safe to place on walls that can be reached by children. What I love about these stickers is that they are very easy to use and apply plus they are removable, and reusable.

How to install the sticker:
1. Prep wall: Ensure he surface is smooth, dry and free from dust and dirt. What I personally do is I wipe the surface with alcohol, but wiping with a clean cloth is enough.
2. Plan your design: Layout your design before applying stickers to the wall.
3. Get your sticker on: Smooth on with your hand, working diagonally across the sticker from one corner to another. Smooth out creases and bubbles as you go along.
4. Sit back and enjoy your new look!

Wall Candy Art Stickers has more than 50 designs available with the more unique ones being the glow in the dark and chalkboard / whiteboard designs. Prices are affordable at P650- P950 only per pack.

Here are some of my favorites. Pictures are from http://wallcandystickers.com/:

CAN YOU TELL ME HOW TO GET TO SESAME STREET?

I miss Sesame Street. I used to watch it when I was a kid. I’ve been seeing a lot of Sesame Street Themed party. For those thinking of using the Sesame Street Themed Party, check out this contribution made by Mommy Sharry Casco-Matias.

The theme that was chosen by Mommy Sharry was Sesame Street, because his son, who is the celebrant, loves Ernie. He is fond of watching Sesame Street. Mommy Sharry designed the invitation and Facebook invite announcements. Venue was at ChicBoy Madrigal. They have a mezzanine that she requested to be closed for the private party. The people from Chicboy Madrigal were very helpful in setting up the venue and they are very accommodating during the event.

Hanging decorations and table decorations were made by the godmother of Mommy Sharry’s son- Mimi Rodriguez. It was made from folded Japanese paper. Mommy just added the eyes and mouth. The balloons and set up was care of another godmother, Maricar Bagayawa.

Cake was care of mommy Sharry’s sister-in-law Daintee Matias-Bulanhagui. They just added toys of son and daughter to compliment the table. The Daddy also made a clay sculpture of his son David with Ernie.

For the godparents’ souvenirs, they gave out a box of home made chocolate brownies chef Mark Matias. Both parents made the themed boxes. They made use of card boards and double sided tapes. They also gave the godparents products of their good friend Melvin Laquindanum, which were oatmeal and papaya soap.

Baby Fashion Friday: Hot, Hot and Hotter

Hi my loyal readers! Welcome to another blog post about the hottest trends in baby fashion. I decided to schedule updates on baby fashion every Friday. I’m calling the updates Baby Fashion Friday (although of course this will still be under the tab Baby Z’s Style Corner).

This week is about color and two of the most loved colors for this season is pink and red. So for this week, my style focuses in using these colors as my base color and mixing it up a bit with prints.

Well, you all saw my dress for my fourth month birthday. To those who haven’t seen it yet, here it is.

St. Patrick Baby Socks

I am wearing a white dress with grey polka dots and a baby pink ribbon in front. This was given to me by my grandmother, which she bought from the US. As you can see, it is still a bit loose, since the dress is actually for a 6 months to 12 months old baby. I paired it with white with pink stripes St. Patrick Baby socks. The headband that I have is a pink headband with a sequined bow from Lil Miss Belle Hair Accessories.

Here are other pictures of me!

For this week, too, I got to go to meet the other babies from our birthing class. It was so much fun! I had a blast. That day, I wanted to wear red so this is what I came up with…

Red Shorts and 'animal prints' onesie

The red shorts is from Cotton On. The onesie is from Marks and Spencer. The red socks were from Baby Company, given by Tita K, and the headband was a gift, too!

Baby Zeeka’s Fourth Month Birthday

Last Monday was Zeeka’s 4th month birthday. This month, we didn’t get to buy Zeeka a cake, but it was still special since Daddy Ej took a leave of absence just to be with is for the day.

So what is a typical “month birthday” like in our household? A lot of people ask if they should celebrate the monthly birthday of their little ones or just celebrate the 1st birthday. Well, in our home, we do celebrate “month birthdays”, but it really is just a simple celebration.

Each “month birthday” celebration is uniquely celebrated — different from how we celebrated it the last month. This month, our day started early since I had to go to a meeting in Shaw Boulevard. My meeting was at 10 am so we had to leave at 9 am. We got there pretty early (didn’t expect traffic to be light). We got to start early so by 10:15 am, I was done.

One of the rituals though is that we dress Baby Zeeka up. During her month birthdays, she always wears a special dress with matching accessories. For her fourth month birthday, she wore this…

We wanted to go to Shangri-la Mall, but we decided yo go to Megamall instead since the former didn’t open until 11 am. When we got to Megamall, we decided to eat and celebrate at Yabu. Baby Z, as usual, was in the best of moods. She’s like that when we go to malls or when we stroll around in places she hasn’t been to.

Of course, we had to have dessert, so we bought ice cream from Gelatissimo.

Poor Baby Zeeka. She still couldn’t eat, so on the road going to her pediatrician, she was eating her Fisher Price “hammer” toy.

We left Megamall at exactly 12 noon to head to St. Luke’s Global City. Baby Z had to have her second round of 5 in 1 vaccines today with Dra. Saulog. Maaan, she couldn’t stop crying. We gave her paracetamol to ease the pain. She would stop then after a few hours she would cry again. This went on during the entire afternoon and evening. Even if we went to my lola’s house after. To distract her, we had her play the piano.

When we got home, we gave Baby Zeeka our gift. It was a dress that we bought from Mothercare in Bonifacio Global City.

Then, after that, I nursed Zeeka (oh by the way, I failed to mention that I’m still exclusively breastfeeding her so I didn’t get to mention that we would nurse every so often) and then she went to bed.

That’s pretty much what we did and how we normally celebrate the month birthdays. We’re a simple family so how we celebrate is pretty much basic and simple, too.

How about you? How do you celebrate your baby’s month birthdays?

Love lots,

Mommy Ginger
