Milkmakers

I have a subscription to american baby magazine and saw an article about Milkmakers. It's a chocolate chip cookie with oats, brewer's yeast and flaxseed that promotes milk supply.

I already do mothers milk tea and oatmeal. This sounded like a great compliment to what I already do.

I've tried the cookies for a week and it seems to be working. I was able to pump a lot the other day I pumped.

I did have to warn my dad not to eat it though. Haha.

Spotted on my iPhone

I have a lot of free time since I'm on a family vacation in Colorado. Here are some interesting links from my iPhone:

Zumba classes - I tried zumba on Monday night with a mommy friend and loved it. I def want to try when I return to oc

Best mascaras - I have been researching mascaras and saw this story. My sis got me lancome's hypnose and I bought Armani's eyes to kill excess. Stay tuned for some reviews on these mascaras.

Joe's jeans - my train friend was wearing these and I found them online. $167 is kinda steep for pants, but they are super cute.

LA Times critic outed - I read this blog post and was shocked. I read her restaurant reviews and love her recommendations. I can't believe a restaurant took her picture and outed her. How sad! She's worked so hard to be anonymous in this digital age and this happens. What an unfortunate incident.

Daniel's of Paris

My hubby brought me to a French bakery in aurora yesterday so I can pick up treats for a brunch.

I was so amazed by all the treats. Eclairs, napoleons, Danishes, cookies, cupcakes, croissants, tarts - they had it all.

I ordered a nice sampler for our friend's house. I tried a lil bit of everything after brunch. I def recommend this Coloradan bakery. Yummy!

Freddy's steakburgers

Image
Yesterday, i was craving fries so hubby was nice to get me a burger and fries at freddy's in aurora.








The fries were thin cut, while the burger wasn't a patty but grounded up beef a la sloppy joes. The single patty was enough to squash my craving. Overall, it didn't quite satisfy like a five guys or carls jr burger, but was still good.

Babylegs

Image
I first saw a little girl wearing leggings in a little gym class a few weeks ago and knew I had to get them for baby girl.

My package from babylegs arrived today. Hooray! I think I spent $30 or $40 bucks on these.

Bebe wore a brown pair today. Too cute!

Eye mask

I got this cute eye mask at H&M last week. It's the best $4.95 I've ever spent. I love sleeping in the dark and this tricks me to think I am.

Goldilock's

Image
My mom suggested meeting up
In Cerritos today. I gladly took her up on her offer.

Before meeting up, I got to pig out at goldilock's. Their lunch express is such a good deal. You can get two items for a lil over 6 bucks.

I chose the pancit, rice, spaghetti and pork adobo. Yum, I say! The spaghetti reminds me of one I had At chow king in the Philippines. Their adobo wasn't like the stew I'm used to, but good as a meat dish. The pancit was just like any you'd get from a family party.





For dessert, I went crazy and bought chicken empanada, hopia, cassava cake and ube cupcake. Whaa? A Filipino
Cupcake. I can't wait to try it and see if it can compare.

Sketcher's Shape Ups

Image
These are my new Sketcher's I bought with my mom at Cabazon outlets on black Friday.



I wasn't really looking to buy new sneaks, but she got a pair and the $79.95 sale price was too good to pass up.

I wore them for the first time on the train and surprisingly liked them. I feel tall in them. I seem to stand up taller. It makes you balance on middle of your feet instead of heel and toe. Hopefully it can help me lose post baby weight.

Pretty cool, though! I recommend em if you need comfy sneaks.

Cougar Ringo Star Boots

Ever since I saw these cold weather boots on Shoe Blog, I have been obsessed with them. I think they'll totally work for Colorado and my LA commute.

Come look w/ me:

Red velvet

My recent observations have led me to believe red velvet is becoming mainstream. No longer just a cupcake flavor, ice cream and drinks are following along.

Coffee Bean has a new winter drink called red velvet cocoa. I haven't tried it yet, but it sure sounds good.

Baskin Robbins announced in their e-newsletter they have a red velvet ice cream flavor. Yum, though I think it's a little too cold for a frozen dessert this time of year.
