How to Start Your Career as Work-at-Home-Mom

One month before I gave birth to my son in 2016, I rendered my last day of work after almost 10 years in my first ever job after graduating from college. It wasn't a spur of the moment decision. Actually, it's one of the hardest decisions I made. The thought of not having a full-time job after years of being financially-independent is scary but the the thought of leaving my son to other people scares me more. And with today's scarcity of reliable nannies, I doubt if I'd ever find one that I can be at ease leaving my son with.

I am just thankful that while working full-time, I had the opportunity to learn which opened doors for me into the world of working from home. That helped me in making the decision to resign from my office-based job. I find comfort in the thought that I can always find part-time gigs with my experience, skills and connections (since I have lots of friends who are also working from home).

Those without prior experience to working from home or connections need not lose hope. I wrote this article for you to help you jumpstart your career as a work-at-home-mom.


How it Works

Before you start looking for jobs, it is important that you understand how this whole thing works. In order to work from home, you need to have a reliable internet connection and computer with specs appropriate for the job you intend to do. Some jobs, like customer service reps and online teaching, have minimum internet speed. Meanwhile, jobs that involve graphics, video editing and web development require higher computer specs.

Review: Lady Oral Contraceptive

DISCLAIMER: I am not in any way associated with this product nor have medical background about this matter. I am simply a blogger who decided to share my experience with this product. If you are confused about the dosage, schedule, etc., better consult a doctor to be safe.

It wasn't my intention to hop from one brand of contraceptive pills to another but I just had to because the previous ones I tried are either not for me or no longer available in the market.

The latest brand I tried is the Lady Oral Contraceptive. At first I was hesitant to use the pill due to, I admit, the price. It's so cheap I felt doubtful if it will indeed serve its purpose or if it's really safe to use. But since I didn't had a choice that time, I decided to go for it. After all, I can always switch to other brands in case I find this unsuitable for me.


Review: Beauty Bakery Skin Perfecting Underarm Scrub

For my first post this year, I will be talking about the newest product I tried - the Beauty Bakery Skin Perfecting Underarm Scrub. Well, this isn't really new in the market but I have just discovered it and recently got one for myself. I learned about it through BeautyMNL where I also ordered mine.

I have been using this underarm underarm armor for two weeks now and I'm excited to share you my thoughts about this.


PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

An underarm exfoliator that keeps the pits clean, fresh, and bright.

Contains crushed apricot seeds for mild exfoliation; infused with coconut butter that smoothens the underarm; has natural papain and tea tree extract to whiten the armpit; lightens uneven pigmentation; diminishes underarm odor; enriched with the anti-inflammatory properties of lavender oil and coconut oil; prevents post-blemish scarring caused by plucking and shaving

Review: Be Organic Cocoa Butter Diaper Cream

Every mama out there knows how important it is to have a reliable diaper rash cream. From the day the baby is born until the next couple or so years of his/her life, they'd be using diapers, be it disposable or cloth, everyday. Lucky are those moms whose children mastered potty training earlier. As for me, I've been trying to potty train my son but we still get accidents because he tends to forget where to pee especially when he's busy playing. I have no choice but to have him wear diapers during bedtime and when we go out.

Over the course of two years, we have tried a few diaper rash creams with Dermablend Zinc Oxide as the most favorite one. While we're okay with Dermablend, I'm always drawn to organic products so I decided to try Human Heart Nature Natural Nappy Cream. We finished two tubs of it and I knew in my heart I want to try something else so I got Be Organic's Cocoa Butter Diaper Cream.


Product Description

Our natural diaper cream/balm is made from all natural ingredients like cocoa butter, beeswax and olive oil to nourish, repair and create a barrier to protect your little one from wetness and irritations. Calendula is especially useful in soothing rashes, insect bites and other minor irritations.

Review: Charlize Oral Contraceptive

Hello everyone! I'm back with a new review that will benefit my women readers. Today, I will be talking about the birth control pills I currently use. It's the Charlize Oral Contraceptive. I'm almost halfway with my second pack so I think it's about time I write about it.

Before this, I used Daphne pills for two years since I was breastfeeding my son back then. When I weaned him off, I switched to Althea but I was only able to use it for one month because of its effects on me (more on that in the days to come). I wanted to go back to using Sophia which I used before I got pregnant but it's been phased out already according to the pharmacy assistant. She recommended this Charlize saying that they're similar so I decided to give it a try.


Use

I started using Charlize after the seventh day of my pill-free days. Based on the leaflet that came in the box, the first pill should be taken after the seventh day of your pill-free days (for 21-pill pack) or the day after you took the last pill of the previous pack (for 28-pill pack). It can also be taken on the first day of your menstrual period or any day of the month as long as you are not pregnant. It's best taken at the same time each day.

Charlize is a 28-pill contraceptive, with the last seven pills as Iron supplement (Ferrous Fumarate).
