Home Improvement Suggestions with Minted

This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links. I was compensated for this post.

I have been working at home for more than 10 years and I have also been looking after my kids at the same time. So in other words, I spend most of my time at home. When I do have idle moments sitting on my computer chair and just resting my mind, I would look at one of my house walls and say, “This wall is boring. I think I would need a nice picture hanging there so I could look at something relaxing where I could drift in my thoughts.” Haha! Well, I think that’s too much, but I did think like that sometimes

Art Print


So finally, I made it my unconscious goal of looking for some nice pictures or posters or even wall stickers that could look great on my white wall and bring it "back to life". I hesitated looking at paintings because paintings are more expensive. So I started looking in Minted.com and I found some very nice and simple art prints. They’re not just art prints, but they were made by certified talented artists so I have to say they know what they’re doing. Here’s an example of an art print that I really liked:

Seaside Wall Art Prints by Alexandra Nazari

A nice fine art picture of the coast is really a beautiful sight for sore eyes especially when you're already stressed at work or feeling fatigued. It's a nice picture to drift your thoughts into. You also have the freedom to choose the type of frame you want for the picture that would suit the color of your wall or your room. Spring-inspired art or seasonal-inspired art is also available at Minted.com website. 



Lamp Shade

According to Wikipedia, a lampshade is a fixture that covers the lightbulb on a lamp to diffuse the light it emits. A lamp shade also serves to "shade" human eyes from the direct glare of the light bulbs used to illuminate the lamp, which also serves a very important role on setting the room's mood; it can be relaxing or playful or fun depending on their color. 

Since I have children and I want to set our living room with a fun, family-oriented atmosphere, I want my lampshades to have fun colors that the kids would find playful. Here's an example of a "fun" lampshade I found at Minted: 


Patchwork Watercolor Drum Lampshade by Erin Niehenke 
I really like the pastel colors of this lampshade because it brings out nice and playful colors into the room. It suits well on rooms with white or beige walls, and I also think the kids will like it. 


Table Linens

I've always been a fan of table linens. My mom always used them to decorate the tables especially during the holidays. Even without an occasion, having table linens to "beautify" a table is always a good idea. The challenge is what color or design you would choose to compliment the table. 

Minted's unique designs, sourced from their global community of independent artists, are now available as table runners, placemats and napkins. All of their table linen products are made from luxurious, natural-fiber textiles and are custom made for you in the United States. Please note that all fabric is printed to order and color variations may occur between different orders.

I personally love blue because it's one of my favorite colors, and I'm glad I found the shade of blue that I really like for my table from Minted. Here's a picture of it: 

Watercolor Ombre Table Runner

That's all for now about home improvement. I hope you liked my suggestions and gave you some insights on how to improve your own home. If you have more suggestions, questions, or any other comments, please feel free to write them down below on the comments section.

Real Beauty Offers Beautiful Crowning Glory Items


This post is sponsored by Real beauty official store

A woman’s hair is her crowning glory because it is one of the best assets a woman can have. So having beautiful and healthy hair is a must. I remember back in our elementary days, we had our Good Grooming subject and the hair is one of the most important things we need to maintain clean and nice because it is indeed our crowning glory especially for women. Having shiny and healthy hair is a good asset for anyone.


Unfortunately, due to hormones, aging, or other reasons, some people cannot achieve long healthy hair. Not to mention, parties or events such as reunions, office parties, or even school parties happen in spontaneously and sometimes you just have to get that perfect look to win clients or simply to look beautiful to win the crowd.


No need to fret because Real Beauty knows what you need. Real Beauty offers wigs that uses real human hair to enhance your crowning glory. In Real Beauty, you get to see lots of wigs to choose from such as Brazilian hair, hair bundles with closure, to curly hair,  you can definitely find the one that suits your color and style. You can also specify the length of the hair you want.

What You Need To Know About Strollers

Image Credit: Pixabay
A stroller is an essential baby gear usually needed right from the time a child is born until s/he can walk a distance on his or her own. It can be hard having to pick a stroller from the numerous brands that are in the market. The double jogging strollerwith snack tray might be just what you want.


Stroller Types

       Standard strollers
This type of stroller comes with a comfortable padded seat which can adjust into different positions. Most of the strollers have sunshades and storage spaces below the seat. While some allow the baby to face forward, others permit the child to look back at their parents.
       Car-seat stroller
This stroller comes in handy if you need to take a sleeping baby out of the back seat as its frames are lightweight metal frames aimed to carry certain types of infant car seats. These structures are easy to fold up and throw in the trunk of your car and don't take up much space. Your baby won’t be able to use it anymore once s/he outgrows the infant car seat.
       Jogging strollers
These stroller types come with three bicycle wheels on a lightweight frame which makes the ride smooth for both pusher and passenger. Some jogging strollers carry more than one child, either side-by-side or one-behind-the-other.
       Travel systems
Travel systems are standard or jogging strollers that can also carry an infant car seat. These types are bigger, weightier, and more expensive than a stroller frame, but you can use them even after your baby has outgrown his or her infant car seat.
       Lightweight strollers
These generic strollers may not have much padding and sometimes aren't very adjustable, but they are usually less expensive than models with more features. They’re better for toddlers and older children and can be used as backup strollers or for traveling.
       Double and triple strollers
These strollers allow parents to push two (or more) children at once. In bicycle models, one child sits behind the other – an arrangement that can be useful for a baby and an older sibling.

Tips Before You Buy a Stroller

       One of the ways you can save money on a full-size stroller is by getting a travel system: a car seat and stroller sold together, usually sold at a reduced price.

       Learn all about strollers, their features, and costs. Sometimes, a lower price usually means a plastic frame and wheels while high prices mean wheels that absorb shock, so the baby doesn’t get disturbed during a ride.

       You should test the product before you purchase it. If you are in a store, take it for a spin so you can get a feel of features like the brake, handlebar, the height, and the stride.

       Consider buying a stroller that has fabric which is washable as your child might mess it up on some days.


Ensure that the stroller has an adjustable seat which is easy to use. This option makes it better for your child to nap peacefully.

4 Ways To Remove Fleas From Your Pets

We all love pets, and we all hate fleas. And sometimes we laugh at how the two most loved and hated things can coexist. You just can’t have one without the other. But recent advancements in science have affected home remedies as well. People have started to realize that there are better and cleverer ways to get rid of common household pests.

So we set out to find the 4 best and most efficient ways to rid your house and pets of fleas. Take a look for yourself!

1.    Clean Pet:

One of the easiest and most cost-efficient ways to prevent and cure fleas is to clean your pet. Common household pets, especially those with cozy soft fur coats, are more likely to harbor fleas. Be sure to give your pet a bath every three days, or as advised by a professional vet. Remember to groom with a soft comb, as this usually wicks away any existing fleas. Keep an eye on your animal, and don’t let it touch any other pets which are suspected to be infected.

For prevention, use store-bought medication and sprays to inhibit the growth and breeding of these pests. But most importantly, remember to love your pets the way they are!

2.    Clean House:

You might like to blame the flea infestation on your dog, but sometimes the fleas come from your house. Even if the source is the animal, the fleas can reach all over the place.
Remember to vacuum every day or so, under the carpet, the rug, even the welcome mat. The sofas should be regularly dusted and cleaned. Some fleas can even nest inside the mattress. If the infestation is too severe, discard the item and remember to wrap it in a plastic bag with a label that can warn others.

3.    Flea Bomb:

Flea bombs are the next best thing to removing flea infestations. These are usually canisters of chemical propellants that immediately kill any and all types of fleas. One flea bomb per room is sufficient.
Firstly, make sure that the entire house is evacuated. Remove all pets from the house, including the fish tank (cover it if you cant remove it). Next cover all your valuables, appliances, and electronics, remove all food items and crockery from the house, and turn on the flea bomb!
The easiest way to find the best flea bomb is to look at flea bomb reviews. These will give an insight into the effectiveness of the product.

4.    Plant Some Plants:

Certain plants are known to repel multiple insects, including fleas. Try planting lavender, thyme, neem, sage, cloves, eucalyptus, and perhaps even some garlic. Not only will these give your yard a great look, but they will keep the fleas out for good. Remember to research on them to get familiar with their requirements and necessities.

Conclusion:


Fleas are a menace, but where would this ecosystem be without them? All 4 methods are important in getting rid of fleas, but we personally love the flea bomb. It does half the job for you!
