The coronavirus pandemic has affected us all in different ways, emotionally, mentally, and financially. But perhaps the best way to cope through it all is to dust ourselves off, remember to be grateful for what we do have, and try to help out as much as we can.

We’re sure that like us, you guys have also seen posts in social media encouraging everyone to support local businesses or buy local. Because like everyone else, small businesses also need all the help they can get to survive our current situation. They don’t have the same resources as bigger businesses and they too suffered a decline in sales in the last few months.

And while we also acknowledge that everyone’s in tipid mode these days, shopping can be a good way to de-stress. Plus it doesn’t have to be big, expensive purchases. Small yet useful ones count too. So if you’ve only been buying necessities for the past few weeks, why not splurge a little and give small businesses a boost. Trust us, it’s also for a good cause 😉

Here are a few items and shops you might want to check out:


Masks are also a necessity these days so if you’re due back to the office any time soon, here are a few mask options for you. The best part, all these are affordable, come in great designs and prints, and have filter pockets.

*Plus, I also love their cloth wallets, tissue pouches, and eyeglass cases!

If you’re wondering what a phone case and accessories store is doing under “mommy needs,” well here you go: their phone straps are a must-have for moms who fall asleep while browsing social media while breastfeeding their babies. Because IT PREVENTS THE PHONE FROM FALLING ON YOUR BABY. Seriously, it happens. The best part, the straps can be attached to any case.
