Meet the face
behind the posts

I'm Alyssamay LaBanca. I'm a full-blooded Filipino that was born in Okinawa, Japan and was raised in Chicago, Illinois. I went to community college to become a Dental Hygienist and called it quits 3 years in to pursue my dream as a photographer & filmmaker. I'm married to the love of my life, Michael, and am a mom of 2 kids born 11 months apart. We want a huge family!

I'm an open book and will talk about the struggles and mountains I've conquered. My hope is that my stories help someone who are going through similar struggles and inspire them to take life day by day to work toward a happier, healthier lifestyle.


I talk about everything from mental health, body image, inner-dialogue, setting and maintaining boundaries, mom things, self-care things, wife things, organization, and more. Basically anything that has to do with life, I will write about here on my blog.
