It’s our second blog anniversary! Markxabi.com was birthed out of a sheer need of honest reviews and practical millennial parenting tips to help us through our journey and we’re grateful for the partners and followers we’ve met along the way.
We’re celebrating it with a 10K Giveaway in partnership with 10 of our favorite brands!
Don Simón has over 120 years of experience in creating quality drinks, and is the top brand of wine and juice in Spain. Not only do they provide healthy and delicious drink alternatives, they also create them sustainably by practicing zero waste management, reducing CO2 emissions through their trees, using 100% recyclable packages and more. Thank Espa-Fil Market for bringing them to the Philippines!
Ink and Stone
Look no further for affordable reading time books! We recently discovered this online purveyor of children’s literature in Shopee and it was the first online bookstore that had a good collection of titles that are otherwise hard to find elsewhere.
We first discovered Lil Twinkies when we were looking for silicone baby utensils during a baby fair in Trinoma. We immediately fell in love with their color palettes and minimalist design. When your baby starts eating solids, you can choose from their wide variety of silicone-based products.
Manang Biday’s Kitchen
Manang Biday’s Kitchen introduced us to the world of fermented vegetables we didn’t know existed (aside from Sauerkraut, Kimchi, and our very own Atsara and Buro). Their Curtido, a South American relish, is a staple accompaniment for our dishes, especially during “fried days” or when our viands lack vegetables. We now keep a jar of this homemade side dish in our fridge for a quick serving of fiber when needed.
Almost all of our physical photo albums are made through this amazing service that offers beautiful templates through their easy to use app, and guarantees high-quality prints. Recently, we partnered with them when they launched Photobook X Disney campaign. If you’re a certified Disney fan (like us) then you will love their Disney templates!
Serioso Chili Garlic
Our favorite chili garlic sauce that’s seriously spicy. Its aroma makes any dish more delicious that you’ll end up going for seconds. Or fifths. No judgment.
In all of our baby-related purchases, Swaddies PH’s waterproof absorbent bed mat is one we have never regretted. It was such an aid during Tikoy’s potty training and is still useful now. It’s really the one bed mat you’ll ever need. Read our review here.
The Olfactory Naturals
The Olfactory Naturals team knows the reality of “compact living”: the lack of fresh air and that certain odor that comes along with it. Having this and her kids in mind, Rina (founder), decided to create natural solutions using a range of natural and eco-friendly scent sprays and diffusers made of 100% Essentials Oils that doesn’t only freshen up the home, but can also calm and soothe the senses, bring about focus for productivity.
If there’s one brand we stock up on for our toddler, especially during grand sales, it’s Tiny Buds. We love their tiny garden, chew brush, tooth gel, natural diaper changing spray (no need to rinse), and natural fabric conditioner.
This ultra-thin diaper has been such a game-changer in the nappy department. We love that its waistband is truly stretchable, saves so much space, prevents our toddler from being bow-legged, while effectively absorbs so much liquid. Read our review here.
