Regardless of being at home all the time, I have duties and responsibilities for my family. Being quarantined for a couple weeks is no fun for sure. I know it ain’t easy when people panic, scared, anxious and has the feeling of uncertainty. Can’t blame you, we are in this together! COVID-19 pandemic affect us in many levels. I, personally have all of these feelings. My parents were supposed to travel back home the 23rd of March and received an email from the airline, their flights were canceled for no entry restriction in Taiwan where they had connecting flight to the final destination. It was heartbreaking knowing they have been wanting to go home since December. I’ve had them stay until their original flight date. Would I blame myself? No, because I wanted to build more time with them and take note they are 70’s and 60’s they are more vulnerable to travel half way around the world. It is better off for them to extend their stay than letting them go amidst of this pandemic. Philippines is currently on community quarantine. Stock up on supplies can be very difficult for most of us (more information – google Philippines news). During these uncertain times I have to dwell more on the positive side. Kick out bad vibes, focus on creating stay at home memories with my children, my better half & parents, take care of yourself i.e plenty of sleep – eat healthy – exercise regularly, stay away from the news and social media, and start a new hobby. After all, knowing that 7 of us are all safe and hope you guys are doing the same. Remember, you’re not stuck at home, you’re safe at home!

I spiced up my look to elevate my mood from more duties and responsibilities at home as a wife, mother and daughter. Plus being a teacher to my distance learning students. It can be more challenging after I went through some health issues these past few months. It has been two weeks from my surgery and it became so overwhelming! This look was for a trip to the grocery store and order take-out burgers. It may look crazy as I look but it makes me feel so good. Stretched my hair out, incorporate some old and new pieces from my wardrobe, add a lipstick on, wear a pair of wedge sandals, take out my favorite bag and viola, those instantaneous trips are solved. How do you manage your time being quarantined or isolated? Share some of your thoughts on the comments below. Would love to hear all your feedbacks, tips, and advice on making this kinda “buang” (crazy) Momma some more lighter vibes. (Currently wearing bright colors)! Friends, again stay at home and be grateful for we are safe. My heart goes out to people who got impacted.

How are you guys holding up with stay at home – self-quarantine? What are your most recommended activities at home especially with three boys?

First, Motley Crue with Alice Cooper, Def Leppard with Journey and REO Speedwagon. Sharing my look incorporating my old stuff already in my wardrobe and this pop of color sneakers from Fendi.

I have been picky lately about choosing the right clothes for me. It took me awhile to decide, I had to keep coming back to the store wether there’s something out there more attractive. I’ve gained weight, that is something so hard for me to admit as of right now. But, the truth shall prevail. Right?? Diet and exercise are on the table as of the moment. And working on that goals but not New Year’s resolution. Just doing everything I could to make everyone happy!

Colors and patterns are the key factors in choosing the right one. I have been leaning towards black and white. It conceals that excess baggage. 😀 Upon browsing at Macy’s with the parents, I stumble upon this asymmetrical spotted skirt. At first glance I thought it was leopard print, the spotted makes it more even better. It fits like glove. Can be worn dressed up and down. It’s a pull on style and has elastic back. The length hits the spot. I am wearing my true size Medium. Pairs well with ankle booties, statement jewelries and denim jacket. This look is perfect for Spring. Can be worn date night, girls night out and the special gatherings.

It has been awhile since last post. I was detached from Instagram as well as blog post due to many reasons. I will name a few, first, my parents are here in America with us as a visitor visa. They are going to stay for 6 months. I am trying to make the best of everything so their time is worthwhile. Though there are difficulties with the adjustment stage is because of their age. It is truly challenging for me when all I heard from them is “manguli na mi” (wanna go home). Is like a hell hole to them. On the bright side, my husband and I went on a cruise in a celebration of our fifth wedding anniversary followed by an annual Christmas party with 100 guests at our home. It was a blast and every one had a great time. It was a theme dressed-up party, the color of the year is red.

This dress was other options for the party, but my husband and I chose the long evening dress. Upon browsing at Nordstrom, I fell in love with the style and the color of this dress. Tried it on and viola, it was meant for me! The material is perfect, fits like a glove and it is super flattering – can be worn dressy or casual. Casual paired with sneakers and finish off with denim jacket.

Pleated skirts or skirts in general has been on trend for quite sometime. It became a genuine wardrobe staple. It is the perfect get-up for dressed-up occasions. Pairs well with camisoles, and strappy sandals mostly on Summer time. Can be worn laid back as well, depends on your mood and style. Literally goes with everything! As a Floridian – southern part of the peninsula, we don’t usually get cold as much as the northern part. This look is still acceptable especially with the prints on the skirt.

Looking through the photos of my favorite influencers up North, I loved the layering style, the oversized sweater and knee-high-boots. I have three different pleated skirts in my wardrobe and can stop wearing them.

This dress is sponsored by Ever Pretty. I will be attending a Fall wedding and pretty sure I will be wearing this dress again for my close friend’s wedding, she loves purple and lavender. It has delicate material so be careful wearing spikey accessories or anything that drag the threads. On this look, I accessorized with the giant necklace to add more bling and match with the earrings and bracelet. Unfortunately, no silver clutch available, so I decided to pair it with the magenta clutch. It is actually nice, doesn’t it? What are your thoughts about this look?

Hey guys, I know its been awhile since my last blog post. I have been very busy lately with stuff here and there. I would like to share with you that my parents are coming to America soon for the first time. Back in my grade school and high school, I remember my Dad talks so much about the American history and memorized the 48 states of America, Presidents and etc. He’s more American than me! It is my privilege to have them live with us for 6 months to see on their own eyes what his favorite country looks like. At one point, I want them to experience an American lifestyle, the convenience i.e dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, and car transportations. Meeting their son-in-law for the first time as well and being reunited with the three boys. It is totally different lifestyle and a way of living from where I came from. My family and I couldn’t be more excited!

The 2nd Annual Landoskey Christmas Party is also set already. All is booked. That means this year is almost over. Isn’t it? Can’t wait to celebrate with family, awesome friends and meeting new friends as well. This Christmas party is all about friendships that bring us closer together.

On to this look, upon browsing at Neiman’s I couldn’t pass up. I needed to have it with me without trying it on. It is flattering, love the details and it is just plainly adorable. Unfortunately I cannot find the exact item but linked below similar items. This dress perfect for all occasions. I prefer dressed up because of the lace details.

Check out other similar little black dress and it is super adorable and affordable.
