Happy Universal Children’s Day

November 20 is a special event for the kids.

Happy Universal Children’s Day!

“Your children are the greatest gift God will give to you, and their souls the heaviest responsibility He will place in your hands. Take time with them, teach them to have faith in God. Be a person in whom they can have faith. When you are old, nothing else you’ve done will have mattered as much.”
Lisa Wingate

I Couldn’t Be Prouder

Yes, I’m one of the proudest moms in the world. My little girl is really growing up so fast! Before it’s all about feeding bottles and diapers. Now it’s all about braids and little black & white dress! And, surely soon, it will be all about night gowns and dating. Whew! I wish i can just freeze time and she will be my forever living doll.

“A baby girl – one of the most beautiful miracles in life, one of the greatest joys we can ever know, and one of the reasons why there is a little extra sunshine, laughter and happiness in your world today.”


Much love,


First Day of School


Well, here it is – your first day of school. You’ve been jumping out of your skin with excitement about this for weeks now. And today you joined thousands of other kids in Milan to embark on your very first day at primary school.

This morning when we arrived at your new school, you held my hand and literally shy away from the new faces you’ve seen. Yet, you’re excited about what this day would bring. When the teacher asked to leave the room and to say goodbye, you were teary-eyed, but i assured you i am just around the corner, just to lessen your “fear” of being a “newbie.” Then i finally left and waved at you out of the classroom.

I won’t deny the fact that i was a little emotional as i left you in that classroom … because it’s difficult to fathom that my baby girl is so ready to be a school girl.

Today you start on a journey of learning that will see you through your childhood and, hopefully, contribute in shaping you into a happy, successful grown up.

Today is a momentous first step on your life’s journey and I feel so honored to be witnessing your world opening up.

No matter what, I will always be here on the sidelines to support you and cheer you on.

Love you Z!


Monday Plead

My daughter, Zendra for Guess Kids Look Book 2015/16

I don’t know how many times i “plead” online each time my daughter’s ad campaign or look book were published. I’m a prolific researcher on the web, but the world is so big, i can’t search them all.

I know, it’s always gamble. Who will ever care? But, it happened not just once, but a lot of times already. Strangers helping me out (thanks for their good hearts). An american girl, saw my plead years ago, when my daughter had been the face of Armani Junior. She read my plead blog (like this) and she really took time to go to the Library of Congress in USA to scan the New York Times newspaper, of my daughter’s one page advertisement of Armani Junior, and sent the scanned page to my email. Wow! She’s an angel. She didn’t even know me!

A colombian girl read my blog too, and she didn’t hesitate getting the Airport depliant in Prague when she recognized my daughter’s face for Armani Junior that time, asked my address, then sent the depliant by mail! And that’s why i always say, “no harm in trying”.

There must be some angels wondering on my plead blogs.

So i will give it another shot: To my followers or readers: “If anyone see her photo/advertisement on the web, magazines, or inside the store itself, PLEASE grab a photo of it, or let me know the links through comments or emails!” 

I am just a proud MOM! So don’t blame me. =)

Any seen photos of her for GUESS KIDS COLLECTION FALL/WINTER 2015/16 will be much appreciated! Email at zendrakiara@yahoo.it.
