Dress practices have evolved over time because of many reasons like protection from the weather and environment, societal and religious reasons, and cultural influences. For me however, fashion and clothing preferences go beyond these factors. More than how people perceive us to be by how we look, dressing up affects how we see ourself as a person and how we behave (Adam Galinsky, 2012).
You know how hard it is for us moms to keep up and connect with our BFFs outside our child-infested houses, right? What with running after kids, housework and the endless meals, we all resort to Facebook, Twitter or text messaging (hurriedly, if I may say so) just to be able to catch up with each other. And sometimes we even forget to respond because damn kids just won’t stop whining/crying/asking to be fed! Well, worry no more, I have come up with easy to memorize mom codes to help us get our messages across with the least number of taps (so we can go back to running after our naked toddlers). Enjoy!
Christmas is just around the corner and I have the perfect round-up of Christmas ornaments to make with the kids!
Are you excited for the Holidays? Here in our country, Christmas season starts in September so some of the malls here are already decked with Christmas decorations. For me, I like DIY-ing Christmas decors and ornaments because it gives me and the kids a chance to bond and have quality time. I remember doing the same thing with my mom when I was a kid! She would always come up with unique decorating ideas. I remember this one time when we had this weird but awesome looking Christmas tree made from coconut husk! It was definitely a conversation starter whenever we had guests.
SM Supermalls unboxes new happenings for kids and kids at heart this October with the launch of Kids’ Month in 64 malls nationwide. At a media launch titled SM Super Kids Day held last October 1 held at SM City Fairview, the retail giant announced a season packed with fun-filled celebrations especially designed for kids like United Nations Day and the well-loved Halloween.
One of the things that parents will have to tackle during our kids’ younger years is how to get rid of head lice. Ugh. I’d rather walk on fire than deal with a lice infestation! My head itches just thinking about it!
But we have no choice, we need to manage it because we do not want to see our children suffering from the discomfort brought about by lice bites. Repeated scratching can lead to scalp wounds and irritations. Furthermore, lice infestation can also cause problems in sleeping as the itchiness can disturb their slumber.
My daughter loves her Merida Brave Costume so much that she has worn it multiple times already. Unfortunately, it does not fit her anymore so she had to settle for other costumes the past couple of Halloweens. Luckily for her, she has a mother and a grandma who loves to give in to her whims when it comes to costumes!
My family and I are currently renting a 10+ year-old apartment right smack in the middle of an urban jungle. Although it means easy access to work, school and supermarkets, the main challenge that we face on a daily basis is how to eliminate or reduce indoor air pollution especially that my kids and husband have asthma. But not anymore! I am now assured that we breathe cleaner air at home with Lampe Berger.
