Year-End Round-up: Favorite Finds in 2012

Last Friday of the month:  Mom-Finds / Faves

Mom-Friday's Favorite Finds Year-End Round Up:  From food to fashion, these products and services became personal favorites, earned raves from the family, and also got featured on the blog. 

Today is the last Friday of 2012, and once again, this will be a year-end review of my favorite finds.  I stared this round-up last year, so from here on, I will try do this as my last Mom-Finds post every year.  

With so many good finds this year, I actually did two "current favorite things" features here and here.  It was so hard to narrow down my list for this year-ender, but here it goes, in no particular order, starting with my latest find.

Mom-Friday's Favorite Finds 2012


Paper Chic Studio
This is my Mom-Find for December.  Chic and eco-friendly party supplies from Paper Chic Studio.

The one-stop-shop offers paper products like pretty straws, candy cups, baking cups and favor bags, and multi-colored baker's twine as well.

Paper Chic Studio is the brainchild of Cai, my fellow SoMoms, and I'm very happy to support her new passion and latest endeavor.  Look at how cute these items are!  

Her products came at a perfect time since my girl will be celebrating her birthday this January.  Below are the favor bags I bought... but still looking for something to put in them! =)

I'm looking forward to more unique products from the shop.

Kate Mineral Powder Foundation
I love how this powder feels so light on my face, matched with the smooth finish and medium coverage.  Aside from my phone, this I can't leave home without!

My partner in the kitchen, I've been using this ceramic pan almost every day since got it last July.  A very good "investment".

Cool casual wear, good price, and fits my style.  I'm so glad I discovered And Apparel thru the convenience of online shopping! I got some nice tops and maxi dresses

One of my best buys this year - roomy, light, chic everyday bag, and I got it on (mega)sale!

I live in flats! If I can wear this everyday, I will. =)

It's the best, lightest moisturizing body oil I've used - even for the face! None of the greasy after-feel here.  You have to try it to believe.


A very unique and fun gift we received this Christmas, it is the first gingerbread house we made so this is extra special. (Actually, we just assembled and decorated! heehee)

Rainbow Cupcakes by Tazzy Cakes (formerly Kraze Kitch)
Soft, moist, buttery cupcakes for my girl's last birthday got wiped out by all her classmates.  She requested this again for her 6th birthday celebration this coming January - there's your best testimonial.

They taste as good as they look! I've said enough about these addictive French delicacies on my post.

A trip to Tagaytay will not be complete without stopping over at Amira's - only the best buco tarts to bring home, for myself and for family and friends.


Kidzville Play and Party Center
Hands down, the favorite play center for moms with little kids like me!  I like the location, unique theme and facilities, and the variety of services they offer, all in one roof.  There's none like it.

The first and only science and technology museum in the country and we're so fortunate to have been part of the exhibit testing and preview stages.  My kids love it there.  They even have "stars" named after them at the Universe Gallery!

What were your favorite finds from the blog?
