MEET NENETTE



Welcome! I'm Nenette, but you can call me Nen. Really!

I started blogging in 2007 on my first online home lifecandy.net to chronicle my adventures in self improvement and life as a mom to my sweet little funny family.

Today, as I emerge (some would say like a Phoenix) from the chaos of the "kid years" and enter a new phase of life, I continue to share on this new blog the things I learn and the stuff I love -- simple living, clean beauty, plant-based keto eating, fashion, and various weird and wonderful things I've discovered.

My hope is to inspire you to try new things. Age is just a number, and my Glory Days aren't over. Neither is yours! 
Be who you want to be, and go for whatever you want to go for, no matter how weird, no matter what others say. Because, hey, that's what I'm doing! And I'm taking you all with me! (I can hear you all screaming with joy.)

You'll still get the occasional story or two of my family so you know that I haven't eaten my ever-adorable children or left my scientist-guy husband for any one of my pretend boyfriends.

Roomie, Mini, Lam, and me

This is also my IMDB page, because other than a very minor gig playing a prostitute in a local short film (I am so not even kidding), I doubt I'll ever do anything famous enough to have an actual IMDB page.

So grab a cup of tea/moscato/tequila, wrap yourself up in your favourite blanket/parka/person, and relax while you dig into my online home.

I'm so happy you're here!

xo,
Nen

FAQ
    Did you really have a pet chicken?
    Yes. In the Philippines. I named her 'Manok'... which means chicken. Yeah, I was shockingly creative as a child.

    Where are you from?

    I'm from the beautiful island nation of The Philippines. We moved to Canada when I was almost 4. And I still know how to speak fluent Tagalog. In fact, I learned how to read Tagalog AFTER moving here. It's all phonetics really. Like Hawaiian. What was the question again?
