RAVE Pasig adventure experience

It's the first time that we got to explore Rainforest Adventure Experience Park (RAVE) Pasig considering that we live just minutes away from the park.

RAVE is previously known as Pasig Rainforest Park. This public park offers lots of attractions, amenities, fun and adventure to everyone.

Entrance to the park is free. You just have to pay entrance fees to some of the park facilities you want to explore. Pasigueños with valid IDs - government issued IDs, students’ and company ID’s - can enjoy discounted rates.

So here we go!

That Love for Lemon Kiss Clothing

A girl can never have too many dresses! True, my 10-year old daughter loves dresses (even until now). She even grew up wearing those cute and stylish dresses from Lemon Kiss.

Throwback year 2009.

Here are just two of her favorite Lemon Kiss dresses.

Lemon Kiss, girls party dress
attending a party #2009
Lemon Kiss, girl graduation dress
her first school moving up ceremony #2009

She really loves prints and florals!

My daughter is growing up. But until now, we keep on checking Lemon Kiss clothing's tops and dresses to see which ones could still fit her. Oh well, just hoping that Lemon Kiss will expand their line and make dresses for tweens.

#‎lemonkiss‬ ‪#‎kidsapparel‬

I love their chic designs, styles and pretty prints for our little ladies. Every clothing is perfect for casual parties, weekend out with the family and Friday civilian school wear (just like in my kid's school).

Now here are my daughter's latest favorites!

Lemon Kiss clothing, girls top, bottoms, casual wear, SM

my choice :)
The clothes are light and comfortable. The prices are very affordable too. And since summertime is coming, its breathable cotton fabric makes it perfect for the summer.

These tops, bottoms and dresses can be bought at the Kids’ Section of SM Department Stores nationwide.

Lemon Kiss Clothing is one of the hippest girl's clothing brands to hit the Philippine market since its launch in SM Department stores in 2003 (just a year before my daughter was born). The designs fit the fun and energetic lifestyle of young girls ages 4-12 years old.

Check out more designs at Lemon Kiss Clothing Facebook page.

BFFs sharing their unique stories

In the February issue of Total Girl Magazine, my daughter and my niece briefly shared their story. They share what made them "Instant Besties." We're happy that they really value each other as "besties".

On cover are Girl Meets World stars Rowan Blanchard and Sabrina Carpenter.

Like my daughter, I'm sure that tweens who have this magazine love it. It's filled with besties inspired articles including activities that they can do with their friends. Plus there's a 5 Seconds of Summer and Gimme 5 posters. This issue also comes with #‎TGStarSwappers‬ set.

Everyone got ecstatic upon the arrival of Pope Francis. Seeing millions of people lined the streets to see the pope is overwhelming. His Holiness rode in a white, open-sided Popemobile from the airport to the Apostolic Nunciature in Manila.
