The Tree
Lots of homes have a tree up. Many of us enjoy the scent of a real Christmas tree in the living room. However, most real trees do shed, and those needles are sharp! If you’ve got a little one crawling about, consider how you’re going to keep her from picking them up or chewing on them. Raising it up and sitting it in a tray is one solution, but if your little one can stand, chances are they may be able to knock it over. You might prefer an artificial one, or using a fireguard around it while the baby is playing in the room.

We are so excited about going on holiday that getting our home ready falls to the bottom of the list. But it’s so important to prepare your home so that you don’t come back to an empty property! After all, so many thieves break into properties when the owners are away. And the worst thing about it is they don’t have to try that hard. People leave doors open, or forget to close windows which allow easy access to the property. Therefore, don’t make these mistakes with your home when you are heading off on holiday!

Not double checking doors
As discussed above, so many burglars make their way into the home through doors which have not been shut properly. It means they won’t draw attention when entering your home.

That way, you will know that they are safely locked, and it will be harder for thieves to enter your property! And don’t forget to close windows too; leaving them wide open will increase the chances of a burglary!

As you will know, ageing is an unavoidable part of life. It's something that not many of us like to think about - but ultimately, it's something we all need to accept. The saying 'growing old gracefully' has been around for years, and is open to many different interpretations. Some people consider it meaning that you become more demure and respectable. Whereas others reject that concept and believe your behaviour shouldn't have to change just because you've aged. But whilst there's no reason at all that you can't keep going out to your favourite bar, or playing your favourite sport, there are some things that will inevitably change as you age. Most of these revolve around physicalities. After all, our thoughts and opinions will stay relatively the same, unless we take it upon ourselves to change them. But, unfortunately, we have no choice over what happens to our face and body. Nearly all women will start to notice signs of ageing somewhere between forty and fifty years old. If you're happy with your body whatever its condition, then you rock it! But it can be a source of great insecurity for a lot of women, especially as we tend to age faster than men. If you want to slow the signs of ageing and only look as best as you can, there are hints and tricks you can do to stop the clock in its tracks.

It's no secret that we are part of a world who loves its animals. Whether we are visiting them in sanctuaries or working to protect them in the wild, we spend a lot of time and money on our favourite animals. So it's no wonder that when it comes to domesticated animals, so many of us choose to invest in them. In fact, in the USA alone, reports estimate that there are around 70 to 80 million pet dogs, and almost 96 million pet cats. That means that approximately 40% of all households have either one of these common domestic pets. For many of us, our pets are like our children. We baby them; we dote on them dutifully, and we couldn't imagine our lives without them. But what many pet owners find is that their love of their pets and their love of a clean, stylish home don't always mix. If you take great pride in your home and love the eye-catching decor, it can be incredibly frustrating to have a pet around who proceeds to destroy all your hard work. In some cases, it can lead to us simply not bothering with our homes anymore. But how exactly can we have the chic home of our dreams, while still being able to share it with our pets?


“It is always uplifting to the restless thoughts, to the sleepless eyes and to the troubled heart to be able to watch their kids sleeping peacefully. The innocent eyes, those little noses and the slight movement of their mouth from breathing, makes all the pain go away. It's like a melodious sound that inspire you to put aside all the worries and just keep going because life flows, moves.” ― Karl Gornal 

Moms tends to be overprotective with their kids. We wanted them to be safe and protected all the time. There were few cases of neglectful mothers "pabayang ina" but I know for sure that most of us want the best for our child.


I love watching Korean Dramas when I spare time. Right now, I am hooked with "Cinderella and the Four Knights" (a romantic-comedy drama similar to the 2009 TV series Boys Over Flowers). As much as I love the story, I also love the beat and melody of the soundtracks. Check out the songs below and for sure you'll also can't get enough of this newest tv series from Korea.
