Hey there Mommies! So happy it’s the weekend already! 🙂
Every last Friday of the month, I’ll be sharing with you “LBA’s Choice” or my current personal favourites for the month. They could be mommy products, baby brands, good finds, cheap thrills, new discoveries, and more!
These products/brands are personal recommendations, which means I have bought them with my own money and tried all of them already. None of them are sponsored. I will clearly indicate any sponsored brand on my post, if any. But rest assured that all my recos are honest opinions.
Here goes my list for the month of June:
- OXO Tot Snack Cup
Now that my daughter can eat snacks on her own, she really loves munching on pieces of cookie cereals, especially when in the car or in the mall. I make sure that her snacks are healthy and have variety. However, I can’t bring all her snacks (they come in huge bottles) in her bag. That would just take up so much space. It’s important to keep things light and compact because kids need a whole lot of stuff already as it is.
So I’m glad I found this OXO Tot Flip-Top Snack Cup in Amazon months ago. It’s compact, lightweight, and the flip top cap is so convenient without sacrificing the freshness of the snacks inside. Plus it’s BPA free, easy to clean, and designed to fit into our toddlers’ cute little hands when they eat! Great product for only a super affordable $6! It’s highly recommended!
I haven’t checked the department stores in Manila like Rustan’s if they have these available, but if ever you have purchases from the States, make sure to get this one. I plan on getting the green and aqua ones too! 🙂
2. Mommy Treats
It’s been a while since I made lactation treats for myself. I have to admit, I became quite complacent with my breastfeeding but now I realised that because I’m too busy and stressed out, I need these aids again to help me sustain it.
I’ve been breastfeeding my bubba for 17 months now, and counting! I can’t begin to express how truly thankful I am for this. Hence, this is not the time to take things for granted.
Since I have absolutely ZERO time to make my own, might as well just buy delicious lactation goodies from experts! I got some free samples from the Mindful Mom Retreat I attended last month and man those brownies were just… DIVINE! 🙂
The cookies were just okay but the soft, gooey, chocolatey brownies is definitely sumptuous in every bite. Trying to help myself from hoarding boxes of those yummy goodies! By the way a box of 12 of their best seller Lactation Brownies costs P660. Kind pricey but I think it’s worth it!

3. Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm
Aside from NOT HAVING PRECIOUS TIME to fix myself up, I was never really into makeup. Even when I was still in my “kikay stage”, I would buy makeup but end up not using them, or end up giving them away. I only own a good brand of trusty pressed powder, eyebrow grooming tools, and a lip balm. On special occasions I bring out my hopefully not yet expired foundation, eyeliner, blush, and a couple of classic lipsticks. Just the basics.
Anyway, if there’s only one thing I can wear the entire day, it would probably be lip balm. I have really really dry lips and have a bad habit of always peeling off the skin (gross, I know). I swore by Lucas Papaw since high school and kept asking friends from Australia to hoard for me. I still use it up to now but just last year, I discovered Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm and absolutely loved it! I bought five pieces last year from Sephora in California, and I’m on my last piece now! 🙁
I love the vintage-y packaging, the minted rose scent, and of course the taste! It glides smoothly on my lips and feels like it has healing powers for the lip chapping! One word to describe how it makes me feel = FRESH! I don’t think it’s some kind of a miracle product. It’s pretty simple and straightforward, but it works! Helps me feel fresh all day. 🙂
So there you have it… Three of my favourites this month! I hope you find something you like for yourself. Feel free to send me an email if you have any questions about these amazing products!
Looking forward to sharing MORE and MORE in the coming moths!
Have a great weekend! 🙂
