Loving the little things. It’s the “little things” in my life as a mom that served as the first inspiration for this blog.
Little things like…
staying sane with a toddler son
how to fit exercise into a WAHM schedule (I am work at home mom);
trying to look my best for my husband;
trying out a(nother) nail spa – my essential pleasure…
interviewing inspiring moms and blogging women (because I’m a blog junkie)
Hi! My name is Martine de Luna. Welcome to my blog, Dainty Mom.
Blogging is my bliss.
I first called this blog “Dainty Mom” because the “dainty mom” is me. Since I was a child, I’ve always I had a knack for all things sweet and elegant. From the minute details of my wedding to the my favorite leather-jeweled bookmark, I have a penchant for pretty little things, details, even facts and trivia. (In fact, here are 25 Random Facts About Me.)
In the same way, I have a fondness for the little things that make my life blissful. I like to think motherhood is a journey of collected experiences, like:
… posting stories of real moms I’ve met online, who inspire me or whom I want to support in launching their products, blogs or businesses to the world;
… my reflections on living a blissful, happy life, no matter how ordinary or mundane I feel.
Writing about these experiences is why Dainty Mom has evolved into a platform for me, as a mom and as a writer. It’s where I can share my opinions, recommendations, and even ideas and tips on how I live as a wife, mother, and writer. It’s my collective bliss — my interests, the details and diversions in my life — blogged.
On my blog, you’ll find blog posts and articles that reflect my passions. These are:
I’m also elsewhere…
- I am the Director of the WAHMderful Life Workshops, a suite of workshops that encourage and equip women to work from home.
- I provide creative direction and empowerment for small- and women-owned businesses, and women bloggers. (More about that on my professional site, Martine de Luna Creative.
- I am a contributing editor to the World Moms Blog and the Glam-O-Mamas online magazine.
I love my family.
I’m married to Ton, my husband of four-going-five years, my lover of more than ten years. (Heehee.) Vito Sebastian is our son. We live in the busy metropolis of Manila, the Philippines.
