Candy Colored

Happy Monday everyone! For today's blog post, I'll be sharing Zack's OOTD for school last week. :) As I have shared in my Instagram account, Zack started school last week. Initially, we wanted to enroll him in a Nursery class but the teacher thinks that he's not yet ready for the level. Luckily, we were able to find a progressive preschool that offers toddler classes and they were still able to accommodate Zack despite the late enrollment. 

Honestly, I have not previously done any preparations when it comes to Zack's schooling. It was only when Zack was already enrolled did I found out more about progressive schooling. After doing my research, I was able to figure out how fit such type of learning is for my little boy. I felt like the number of students in a traditional school would hinder his learning. And I love how they were taught to be independent in his current school. Whereas with the trad school where we previously inquired from, their lessons are limited to what the school curriculum prescribes.

Anyway since there were no uniforms available yet, Zack has been wearing civilian clothing for the past week. Expect more of Zack's outfit posts in the coming days because I always take his picture before he leaves home. Most of the time, it annoys him. But I can't help but document his progress and he's just too cute to miss a photo shoot!

For this outfit post, I had him wear this candy-colored Lightning McQueen shirt which he got as a gift. I though it was still small for him. It turned out to be just right for him. It has loud colors but I I feel like this kid was able to pull it off well. Finally I was able to take note of the name of the store where we got the shoes he is wearing for only P150. It's called Budget Fit and is located at the 2nd floor of Ayala Fairview Terraces Mall. And oh please don't mind the wafer sticks! He love them to bits! ;)

Hope you like this kiddie outfit post!

Score Safety, Style, and Comfort with UNIQLO BABIES

One of the fun parts of being a parent is getting to dress up your baby. I really love dressing up Zack! I even made an outfit post section of him here on my blog. :) But when it comes to dressing him up, I only choose stylish pieces which are perfect for mixing and matching and which can also provide him comfort all day. And in choosing the perfect clothes for our babies, I believe that we must prioritize safety above all. Unlike clothes for adults that mostly prioritize trend over comfort, our babies' wardrobes should only consist of clothes that are not only fashionable but are also comfortable and safe to wear.

Score Style, Safety, and Comfort with UNIQLO BABIES

During an event held last week at SM Aura, me and other mommy bloggers were introduced to Japanese clothing and high-street brand UNIQLO Philippines' new clothing collection that is carefully designed and engineered to be safe for babies. It was definitely a great news for me! I've always loved UNIQLO's round neck shirts and jeans as their items have superb quality and affordable prices. And I love that my son can now enjoy their products!

So what makes UNIQLO's Babies Collection unique? Following the global Oeko-Tex Standard 100, UNIQLO makes sure that every piece of clothing is free of harmful substances and meets the highest standards. UNIQLO’s Baby Wear are categorized as Class 1— the safest classification under the Oeko-Tex Standard. From the raw material used to the finished product, all clothes are made sure to be formalin-free to ensure the health and safety of babies.

“UNIQLO is focused in providing stylish and safe clothing essentials for babies. We closely monitor our manufacturing process to make sure that our products meet global strict standards,” says Katsumi Kubota, Chief Operating Officer of Fast Retailing Philippines, Inc. “We apply strict checks on our entire baby’ garments, from the material color and pattern, buttons, zippers, and even the sewing threads,” Kubota explains.

The best quality control is applied to the smallest details of the baby range.  While care labels are commonly sewn inside clothes, UNIQLO’s had its ones placed outside to prevent irritation. A special sewing technique is also used to remove any unevenness on the cloth or threads to keep the skin of babies safe. The clothes, moreover, also undergo tests for more than 200 chemical substances during the planning and production stages.

During the said event, we were joined by Mommies Delamar Arias and Nikka Martinez-Garcia who are both pregnant. And as expecting mommies, they are very particular when it comes to the clothes that their babies would be wearing. As for Nikka, she wanted clothes that are not only fashionable but also safe for her baby. She also wanted something that would be easy to put on and to remove, just like the super cute onesies from UNIQLO's Babies Collection. She is definitely happy and excited about the new babies clothing line of UNIQLO.

To keep to its commitment of providing safe products to babies, UNIQLO will also be adopting an original quality standard later this year. This is another step for the brand to conduct strict product management and finally assume final responsibility to its clothes.  Kubota finishes, “Every parent wants to give the best to their babies. We want to help them with that by providing safe fashion choices.”
