Technology always manages to find a way to weed itself into our lives one way or another. No matter how technophobic you or a family member might be, there’s no denying that technological advances have improved our lives in many ways. For example, with mobile devices, we’re able to bridge the gap between distant relatives and friends, and we can chat and keep up with them using just a single device that can fit into your hands.

These types of advances have not only made our lives easier, but also safer. Take for instance the tracking devices and safety equipment in cars. There are alarms, airbags for safety, and even warning sensors that will automatically slam the breaks if it detects an imminent crash. One of the most vulnerable places that we stay in is our homes. It’s a large open area that has several points of entry for burglars and intruders alike, but thankfully, technology has been slowly improving the situation at home as well.

Christmas is a wonderful time of year. It’s all about celebrations, family and coming together. We know that the real message is not about money and commerce. However, there’s no escaping that it’s an expensive time, especially if you have kids and a large family.

Where do we begin when it comes to schooling our children on the topic of eating healthily? Is it when they’re in preschool? Or is it when they are a lot older and wiser to make their own choices? Research shows that 30 percent of American preschoolers don’t eat one single vegetable, opting to start on tots or fries instead of carrot sticks. So where does the blame go? Is it the school for not putting on healthy meals? Is it the World Health Organization? Or is it us, the parents? While blame can be attributed to all three, I am going to focus on what we can do, as parents. The 1,000 Days organization is hoping to improve the nutrition of our children through the most crucial period of our children’s health, from pregnancy to their second birthday, the first 1000 days.

I have been wondering what would I look if I will wear colorful wigs. I envy those who's rocking their long, shiny and wavy wig like Beyonce. What about you? Have you ever tried wearing wigs before? For those who's wondering the purpose of wearing a wig, then let me tell you. A wig is a head covering that can be made from hair from human, animals or it can be a synthetic fiber. It is a 'fake hair' that you put on your head. But why do women or even men wear a wig? Some wear a wig to cover up their baldness and boost the confidence of a person wearing them. It could also be worn to have a versatile look without compromising their natural hair. I, for example, wants to have a different kind of hairstyle according to my mood but it's costly and impossible to have a different kind of hair color, length and style in just a short period. Hair can't be cut and grown back long in just a day or a week. Some actors wear wigs to portray their character.
