6 Super Weapons of a Working Mom


Are you a working mom? Put your hands or feet up! I know how challenging it is to be a mom whether you're working/staying at home or working in the corporate world. And that's why most, if not all, of us have our super weapons to stay sane!



As part of my 6-series in celebration of my 6th blogging anniversary this month, here are 6 Super Weapons I keep and use as a working mom. 

1. Signature red lipstick

You know how it is when you're in a hurry and you don't have time to fix yourself in time for work? Or you need to run somewhere important and you haven't even taken a bath yet? My red lipstick is my savior to look even just a little bit made up! 

I know we sometimes say that we don't care about what others say. I don't have problems going bare-faced either if I just need to go to the grocery store but when I feel like I look really messed up, red lipstick is my weapon to at least look like a human. 

I mean, we still care about ourselves right? If we look good, then we feel good. We do it for ourselves, not just for others! :) 

2. Power Planner/Journal Notebook/Pen

In this digital era, you may probably forget about notebooks or anything paper but certainly not in my part of the world. To me, a planner or a journal notebook is a must. Or any cool notebook will do the trick. I have so many at home and I haven't even used some of them! I keep them for future use.

If you're a blogger, chances are you know what I mean. Because it's always nice to have something nice to write on - be it your goals, errands, scribbles, reminders, and anything under the sun!

3. Cellphone + internet! 

Yep, they have to go together. I have a postpaid plan with unlimited internet connection - now, granted that there's a network signal, I'm solved. And I admit, it's darn expensive but consider it my guilty pleasure! I actually planned to cut my subscription.. but ehhhh? Because, who can't live without the internet? LOL. We need it for just about anything! Need I say more?

4. A headset or earphones

I can never stress this enough. We need music in our lives! I need it on my long travel to work and back home. But with or without music, a headset is super helpful! I can even pretend that I haven't heard anything when the need arises. Wehehehehe. I know, my bad.

5. Huge bag

Because my life... depends on it. I can only count the number of times when I didn't bring a big bag whenever I'm out and about, with or without Reiko. Every time I try to use a small bag, I always stuff too many things in it so I end up using a big bag instead. I just make sure all my necessities are there.

Trust me, if you live in a country like mine, you'll need this more than ever! How much more if you work at night and go home in the morning?! It's also the best way to conceal my eyebags after hours of work.


These are just some of my super weapons. Relate? No? Care to share your super weapons super mommas? :)
