Baby-Proofed Home

Having kids at home, especially a toddler, makes me a mom that is always on guard. The house should be baby-proofed and safe. So I arranged the house and furniture in a way that it won’t be an accident prone place. I already removed some fragile displays, removed tables that the little tot can climb up, put some table corner covers, and even installed plug and wire covers. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

Live a Healthy Life in a Clean Environment

Deciding to raise a healthy family doesn’t only mean giving them the right food to eat or the healthiest nutrition they can get but also providing them a healthy environment. That is why some people do not only switch to healthy food; they bring their families to a place where they can get healthy food. A healthy environment is what we really need since living in the city with air pollution and other air pollutants causes a lot of health problems. It’s OK if you have a Rabbit Air purification system installed in your home that can somehow help you filter pollution. But if not, it’s best to live in a place with fresh air and lots of trees like provinces. Wellness does not only mean fitness and nutrition it also mean, living a life in a clean and healthy environment.

Car Expert

My friend accompany me to a car shop one day because I honestly don’t know anything about car accessories. There are just too many things to know about cars, yay! When we entered the shop he saw some polaris rzr accessories and it caught his attention for a while. While I went straight to KIA accessories. I didn’t want to show him I am that ignorant with car accessories but he knows me. So instead of inspecting those eye candies, he helped me to get the things I need. Good thing he was with me, I could have bought unnecessary things and spends too much. I'm thankful to have a friend who know a lot about cars, I don't have to pay an expert :)

Christmas Baskets

I’ve visited three supermarkets last week and one thing I noticed that’s common to all of them are the displays of Christmas Fruit Baskets on the shelves. Maybe this is one way to remind shoppers that Christmas is coming and it’s time to save for gifts. And grocery goodies and fruit baskets are one of the easiest choices. No one will not love this especially when the content were all gourmet. I wonder if I’ll received one this time, hehe.

The Tablet

Do you want a tablet? Not that whic you take when you're sick, silly. I'm talking about this:

Almost everyone was bitten by this tablet bug. Why, because almost everyone now desires to own this tech gadget. Tablets pcs is one of the IN and why not since its handy and very much useful. I myself would want to have one someday. But maybe that is not sooner..I’ll wait until the price go down. But I believe miracles happen, lol!

Getting Rid of Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are the common problems of women who already gave birth and I am not spared. Giving birth to two kids gave me my fare share of these annoying stretch marks. During my first pregnancy they are not that visible and I thought I can manage to get rid of them but before it happen I got pregnant with my second child. Now, getting rid of stretch marks is more challenging for me.

They say that stretch marks are not harmful, not unless you are a person who thought stretch marks as ugly lines in your skin. Some doesn’t even bother to have them treated because honestly, it’s a skin condition that doesn’t need to undergo medical treatments because it heals on its own, and I hope it so. They say that stretch marks fade over time but of course with the help of moisturizing creams, lotions or body oils to help the skin moisturized and supple all the time. The problem with my first pregnancy is that I didn’t care about stretch marks because I was pre occupied with preparing for the baby’s birth. I regretted it. So, when I was pregnant with my second I used a brand of body butter to help me minimized the appearance of stretch marks and it did wonders. Somehow, I only had a few additions to the old marks in my belly. Now I use a brand of sunflower oil to help me minimized the rest of the marks. The brand claims that it can be use to stretch marks. I am also reading a post on trilastin reviews and will see if this product will also help me. Trilastin claims that it’s the most effective and successful stretch mark removal cream in the market. Hopefully, with a religious application of these products, my stretch marks will be forever gone.

Search Me, Use Me Lord

It's been ages since I posted something about my faith here. It's because I have been in my down times and I have been neglecting what I am supposed to be. It's just recently when I was tasked to facilitate our small group (cell group) in church that I realized I was not being what I have to be as a Christian. I know I have been living a life that is boring and dry. So I started reading my bible and reading books that will encourage me and restore the joy of serving and living for God.

Last Sunday, I was touched by the message of our guest speaker, it's about giving back our lives to God and allowing Him to use us. I had this feeling of guilt that I have not prayed that prayer for so long now. And I've decided, I will not live a life of mediocrity, I will stand and desire to be used by be a salt and a light of the world.

Sonda-me, Usa-me Senhor
(Aline Barros)

Search me, Lord, and know me,
Make my heart to be broken..
Transform me according to your word
And fill me until only You can be found in me
And then... use me, Lord, use me

Like a lighthouse that shines at night
Like a bridge over the waters
Like a shelter in the desert
Like an arrow that hits it's target
I want to be used in any way that pleases you
Any time and in any place, here is my life.
Use me, Oh Lord...

Plus Size to Size 8

My sister and I are planning to have a photo shoot somewhere in Quezon City this week. Actually this is not only to have nice pictures of our selves but we will also feature some of my items that I wanted to sell online. These are pre-loved items that I bought on various shops that I visited selling imported and unique pieces of clothing. But while I’ll be wearing these items, my sister is on the lookout for affordable plus size clothing that she can wear for the photo shoot. She is not actually that big but some of the plus size womens clothing looks good on her. They somehow give her a sexy silhouette when worn properly. So before our planned photo shoot, I still have to accompany her to look for an affordable womens plus size tops. I told her that I’m hoping also that someday we won’t need to take the effort f finding that size of clothes for her because I can just let her use some of my cute clothes since we will be of the same size, LOL!

Kidding aside, I really wanted my sister to lose weight. I am even inviting her to play badminton with me but since her schedule of work is shifting, she cannot find time. But I am not giving up on her I know she can bring back her previous body weight and built soon.
