ABOUT





Hi!  My name is Nenette Alejandria Mayor, but you can call me Nen.

I'm a writer/blogger and HOT Hula fitness® instructor.  When I'm not teaching awesome women to shake their hips 'til their legs turn to jelly or at my computer editing a post for the millionth time, you can usually find me driving my kids to dance class or on the couch snuggling a cat watching The Orville.

In 2007, I started LifeCandy to share my family's antics, the sweeter lighter side of parenting life, and stories of self-improvement as a mom of active grade-school kids.
Now, over a decade later, LifeCandy documents my life as a Gen-X mom of teens, entering a new phase, still discovering ways to make life even sweeter.

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

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.

Anyway, what really lights me up these days is helping other women like me feel good, look good, and have fun, knowing that age is just a number and our Glory Days are certainly not over.  And that's what I hope you take away from my chatter brain farts pearls of infinite wisdom.

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.

Thank you -- Mahalo -- Salamat... for coming to visit!

xo,
Nen

FAQ
Why "Life Candy"?
You know how eye candy is "a treat for the eye"?  Yeah, like that, except replace "for the eye" with "for life".  Life treats.  Things that make life sweet -- you know, life candy.
Also, my childhood nickname is 'Candy'.  It's a Filipino thing.  Everyone had to have a nickname.  I'm just thankful I wasn't called 'Bong-Bong', 'Jhet-Jhet', or 'Wheng-Wheng'... which are actual nicknames of my cousins.

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 Filipina-born and Canadian-raised.  So, 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?
