Making every room in your home practical yet beautiful is the key to having a living space that you just adore. So how do you go about doing it? This post is going to help you get it right!

Make Sure All Pathways Are Clear
For your home to be as practical as possible, you shouldn’t have anything in a room that trips people up or gets in the way. When making your way through each and every room in your home, you should make sure pathways are permanently clear. There shouldn’t be a corner of furniture that people can bang their legs on, and there shouldn’t be a rug corner that trips people up. Getting from place to place in your home should be smooth sailing.

Use The Right Type Of Lighting
Having the right type of lighting in the home is key to making a room both practical and beautiful. Task lighting is best for the kitchen, office, and anywhere else in your home that you tend to do important things, like cooking food or even doing your makeup. Mood lighting is great for the rooms that you like to relax in. Looking at a site like ledison-led-lights.co.uk will give you an idea of the types of lighting available to you. Getting a dimmer switch could be a good idea if you want to control the level of lighting.


You suddenly realize that your kid of yesterday is now a teenager demanding a room and private space for himself. Though you know his demands are right, yet actually getting down to organizing a room for him might be daunting at first. But when you sit down to plan it with him, you'll find it's not all that difficult. With a little bit of help from him, you'll soon be headed in the right direction. Here are seven tips to get you going:



One thing that all parents can agree on is that encouraging your kids to eat healthily is a mission which can take a lot of time and practice. However, as long as you are including certain foods in their daily diet, you should find that they are much healthier than they would be otherwise. The fact is, encouraging a healthy diet is relatively easy as long as you just focus on a few of the most important types of food first and foremost - and worry about the rest another time. If you are simply looking for a way to bring more healthy food into your family’s diet, then take a look at the following for now.


Over 300 aspiring chefs from 52 schools and universities competed in the 2017 Ajinomoto® Umami Culinary Challenge (UCC) at the Philippine Trade and Training Center (Manila).  This event was the culmination of the national roadshow that began last August 2016 in Cagayan de Oro and October 2016 at Cebu City.

When your little ones are very young, you're used to being everything that they need. They not only rely on you, but you're always the one they turn to whenever something happens. It's a lot of work, but there isn't a parent alive who would say they want things any other way. That's what makes it so hard when your kids start pulling away and wanting a little more independence. A lot of parents imagine that this starts at around puberty, but it actually starts to happen quite a bit sooner than that. Even as a pre-teen, your child is going to end up going through more changes than you expect. But remember that. However jarring and surprising a lot of these changes might be for you, that's going to go double for them. It's important not to overreact when your kids start showing signs of wanting a little more distance, the last thing you want it to smother them and end up pushing them even further away. The key is to help them feel confident to strike out on their own while always making sure that they know that you're always going to be there for them. Sometimes, that can be easier said than done, however. To help make things a little easier, here are some tips on how to handle a few of the tricky milestones that your child might hit as they get a little bit older.

There is no doubt that Disney films have a unique place in our culture. They are truly generational; the films we watched as children are the same ones that we show to our kids now. Unlike so many other aspects of culture, they don't lose their magic over time - today's kids love Cinderella just as much as the original watchers back in the 1950s did. The stories get updated, take on a new meaning and inspiration for a new generation, but they never lose their gloss.

Given that many of us who are now parents were raised on Disney films, it's fun to look back at them. You know you have crossed the adulthood Rubicon when you hear Ariel's speech to her father from The Little Mermaid:

"I'm 16 years old! I'm not a child anymore!"

And you find yourself thinking: "are you kidding me? 16 and able to make a life-changing decision? Yeah, that'll go well..."

So what lessons have our generation learned from Disney films? It's worth thinking about, given the continued presence of the genre in our lives. We inundate stockists for information on Frozen merchandise (and have the occasional meltdown on social media when they run out), we strap our kids into the Minnie Mouse stroller, and we pack lunches into Tangled lunchboxes. Disney is still ever-present. So what does it have to say about parenthood?
It's February, which means love is in the air. Though Valentines Day had already passed, some still consider this month a chance to celebrate love. The love month doesn’t just pertain to having a relationship with someone, it’s not just about going out on a date or stressing on what to give to your partner or dreaming about what to receive in return. The love month should remind us of everything and everyone we love.

Our parents, siblings or friends who stuck with you through thick or thin should form part of this particular month. Loving yourself should not be set aside as well. 


It's not easy to trust your life with someone else's hand even with doctors, therapist, lawyers or a helper at home. In this day and age where people claim a lot of things that are not true, one of the hardest to fake is that of being a doctor. After all, becoming a doctor takes a lot of years, time, and patience as well as perseverance. This is perhaps why doctors put a lot of pride in themselves because after all, what they do is no easy feat. Saving the lives of people is something that not everyone is able to do, and yet they do in their daily lives. One can even say that it comes naturally to them, as natural as it is for everyone else to breathe.

This is what Dr. Paolo Bellosillo has been doing for the better part of his life. He has entirely devoted every second he lives in making the lives of the people around him better and hopefully, longer by teaching them about integrative medicine and holistic approach to living. He believes that a healthy lifestyle is a way to go as well as an annual check-up of your heart for the heart is the center of your entire being.

Just a few months ahead before the summer season starts here in the Philippines. Though the breeze of the wind still feels cold during the night and in the morning, we can finally feel the scorching heat of the sun in the all throughout the day. 

In preparation for the summer, I am starting to buy sleeveless tops as well as shorts. I am planning to hit the beach anytime soon with my family. Yay!

Last December I hosted a giveaway sponsored by WSDear who's generous enough to send t-shirt top to 1 of my lucky blog reader/followers. They sent the t-shirt along with my token for hosting the giveaway. It actually took more than a month for me to get the item from the post office due to customs inspections and other processes. Thankfully, just three days ago, I finally got the Spring and Summer Fashion Laminated Solid Color Flanging Irregular Mini Divided Skirt Shorts. Hurray!!

Hi loves, how are you doing? Got any plans for the Valentines Day? Are you going to celebrate alone? With a partner? Or perhaps you'll be going to celebrate with friends or family? 

Celebrating a day of love could be every day, but Feb 14 is one particular day, right? By the way, do you have any special outfit you'll go to wear on Valentines Day? Of course, you need to put even a little effort to look good on that special day. Let me introduce you to an online store which caters mainly on fashion clothing.


In life, it pays to have people you can count on. Usually, this statement applies to friends and family - the people most of us find ourselves in the company of at any given time. But it can also pay to have other trustworthy people in our lives as well - especially when these people play a huge role in determining the direction our lives could possibly go in. These kinds of individuals can be healthcare professionals, advisers, therapists or basically anyone who cares about you in some way. Of course, on paper, you should be able to trust anyone who is in a professional position over you, and for the most part that is entirely accurate. However, if you have a problem or are in the middle of some kind of crisis, you need to be able to speak to someone who you know is on your side 100%. Here are the top people in your life you will need to put your faith in and how you can forge good relationships with them.


Now that spring is just around the corner, you might be thinking about ways you can spruce yourself up for the new season. For many years the season of spring has held symbolism with new starts - for example, it is the time that the flowers start to grow again after the winter, and baby animals are being born all over the world. But it can also be a time for you to reinvent yourself for the following year. It also makes sense financially - a few months into the year, most of our wallets have recovered from the huge expense of Christmas, meaning we are able to start treating ourselves again. If you feel ready for a change, there really isn't any better time to do it! Here are some ways you can reinvent your personal style - some subtle and some drastic - to help breathe life into the new season.

Important days in our life can be the day we were born, graduation day or perhaps a wedding day...For most of us, the wedding is considered one of the momentous occasion of our lives.  It is a day that two people will be bind together by law in a lifetime commitment and love. It is the beginning of the new chapter in our life where we start to build our own family.

For women like me, it is an important transition in life. A wedding can only happen at least once in our lives, so we put our efforts and money for the preparation of the said occasion. 


Every day, more and more people are getting sick. We can get sick because of the environment, viruses, and bacteria or perhaps because of genetic factors. An illness can be quickly healed sometimes it take a long time while others have no chance of recovery from being sick. 

In this day and age, the internet has continued to develop which gives us more opportunity in exchanging information and helping us in various fields of work. Through the use of the web, we can quickly communicate with our loved ones wherever they are or whenever we want to. It's like a massive encyclopedia which contains vast knowledge on almost every topics or subject which are accessible to anyone in any part of the world.

With the help of the internet, you can go shopping without leaving your home. You can now buy almost anything you need like foods, books, building materials, fashionable outfits, baby essentials, and even medicines. Yes, different kinds of drugs are now made available online. The development of technology gives us the immediate access to health information and communications with health professionals. 

Online pharmacy can be beneficial in so many ways. Here is a list of reasons why you should buy medicine from Online Pharmacy:


It’s coming! The season of new life, regrowth and perhaps most importantly, new fashion!

As Autumn draws into winter there is much excitement about the multi layering of winter clothes.  Warm hats, gorgeous gloves and time to break out all those chunky knit jumpers you have been storing away all summer.  However, the reality of biting cold winters and long raining weekends soon gets tiresome, so as we draw nearer to Spring, it’s time to get excited about peeling off a few layers.

Spring officially begins in March, so it’s fair to expect there to still be a chill in the air, however it is the perfect season to bust out the trench coat.


Drought is one of the struggles we are facing because of the climate change happening in many parts of the world. It could affect our life as well as the environment. This could cause the shortage of water which may lead to dying of plants and animals as well as humans. Everyone should do their part in conserving water even if you're not currently experiencing drought. 

By cutting down on water use, you may not only help conserving natural resources but you could also help lower your utility bills.

We use more water while showering, but we can't just ignore the satisfaction that we get from letting the water pour over our head just like we are having a head massage.  How do we enjoy a better shower while using less water?

Women dominate the world of fashion for ages. It can affect women's lives because it may show the social status and personality of a woman.

Fashion is always part of our daily lives. From the time we get up in the morning, we also take the time to decide what we should wear aside from preparing our food and taking our personal hygiene. Most of us take time and effort to look good and presentable.

Both men and women are in have different sizes and shapes of the body. Style and fashion depending on how they will complement our body's figure.

The purpose of a house is to provide shelter and protection. Whether you live alone or with someone else, you can seek comfort and security at home. These days, we can never be too sure that our home is safe from the "evildoers." It can be prone to burglars and thieves. A burglary can cause a lot of troubles in our life not just losing our possessions but also our life can be in danger.

The reason why we protect our belongings is not just because of its worth but it has meaning and value to us. But our life doesn't revolve around just by watching over our home and belongings. We also need to go out and do other things like going to school, work, shop, and other things. Some jobs demands a lot of travelling that could take you days away from home. How will you keep your precious possessions?

Whether you are at home or on vacation, you must at all times keep your valuables secure.
