For a couple of years now, since we moved into our new house, my husband and I always makes it a point to do some year end DIY, house cleaning and organizing.  This year, because we both worked from home, we had the chance of squeezing some hours into doing some minor home projects. We focused on our home office and garage. We both believed that an organized home will lessen the stress and will make our work from home set up more meaningful.





All these projects were painstakingly made by my husband. Truly a work-of-love!  We just have to finish it off with paint, and put doors to the storage boxes in the garage, and its complete!

To truly complete this organizing project, we browsed for some organizing essentials that will make our DIY projects a success. Check out what we have in

The 3-drawer office mobile cabinet is perfect for organizing important files like tax related stuff, bills, school papers, important office documents. As an added bonus, its on sale, with a whopping 50% discount.

For our home open storage, we chose these cute Brick Modular Storage Basket. We liked its "scandinavian" colors, giving us that relaxing vibe while working. 

For the garage, we wanted boxes that are transparent so we can easily scan and see the content. 

We also loved this Collapsible Crate with Lid. It looks very sturdy.

Baby Clothing Brand St. Patrick opens its flagship store at Cedarhills Garden Center in Quezon City

After 36 years since its inception, St. Patrick, a local premium baby clothing brand, launched its first official flagship store at Cedarhills Garden Center, Quezon City.

Established in 1985, St. Patrick is one of the pioneers of infant garments in the Philippines. It used to be known as the brand for baptismal lines during the '80s until the '90s. But the brand shifted its gears during the 2000s and focused instead on layettes and basic newborn wears.

"As we are grateful for the continuous support, confidence, and trust in our products that we are receiving throughout the years, we are launching our first flagship store to cater to the needs of parents who are based in Quezon City and nearby places. We are forever grateful serving parents with excellence for years to come," said Gerald Sioco, CEO of St. Patrick.

Designed and created by a mother, St. Patrick brings warmth, comfort, and care to baby's wear. It started when its founder wanted to find clothes for her baby boy but could not find any easy to put on and made of 100% cotton. Back then, most infant garments were made from synthetic content like polyester, which can be hard and itchy for baby’s sensitive skin. Considering this, she decided to start her own company that can offer baby clothing with soft and luxe fabrics made of 100% organic and 100% USA cotton.

Made from certified organic cotton, grown and harvested without the use of harmful chemicals, St. Patrick's infant garments are soft on our baby's skin and gentle on our planet.

"St. Patrick truly understands the needs of newborns. Its softness calms our delicate babies, and its design-fit makes them feel all cuddled up and warm," Sioco shared. 

St. Patrick's baby clothing is also easy to wear and diaper-friendly as it provides an opening design at the bottom part area to make it easier for moms to change their baby's diaper. It also uses Flam Seam Technology, so there is enough room for diapers when worn without having the fabric stretched too much. And it does not easily stretch even after so many wears.

It also provides complete protection for the baby against insect bites and colic pain. It is made of see-through screen fabric that is very breathable and comfortable on babies' skin using Air Flow Technology. It also uses Waterproof Backing Technology to protect the baby's skin and clothes from unwanted liquid stains and wetness.

Aside from its physical store at Cedarhills Garden Center, St. Patrick baby clothes are available in all department stores’ baby section of SM Megamall, SM North EDSA, SM Mall of Asia, SM Makati, SM Aura, SM Pampanga, SM Southmall, Landmark Makati, KCC Mall Zamboanga city and Landmark Trinoma.

St. Patrick can also be purchased through their live selling and online e-commerce platforms:
