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!

Beauty and Wellness Shopping at Beauty MNL

I got really excited when I was given the opportunity to shop at Beauty MNL. I saw my older sisters buy from their online shop and I had the initial impression their items were expensive because my sisters would never buy cheap products. Their sensitive skin would often require treatment from expensive products. But upon browsing through their website, I saw plenty of reasonably priced makeups, hair care, skin care, and other wellness products suited for all ages.

Since I am a mom, I tried to balance my shopping cart with beauty products and home essentials. Yes, home essentials are available in Beauty MNL! So without further ado, here is a picture of the items I bought that's worth P1,000:



Better Goods Hand and Body Soap by Bench (P129)

I love the rosy scent of this soap. We currently use this as a hand soap because of its convenient container and it doesn't dry my skin and also my kids' skin. It's a great soap for the whole family. I also used it as a body wash and I liked it, too. I did not experience any irritation or itchiness. However, its rosy scent is quite mild and it won't last on your skin for more than an hour. Still, we love this. 

Crystal Deodorant (45g) by PILI (P190)

Since I don't do strenuous activities that much and I work from home, I thought using a crystal deodorant would be best suited for me. The crystal deo is also locally known as "tawas." I have to say my eyebrows raised when I saw its price because it has the same price as the leading deodorant brands. But once I tried it, it actually performs better than my usual deodorant. No body odor whatsoever! Even if I sweat, my underarms are still unscented. I definitely recommend this product. 

Lip and Cheek Stain Alive! (Cherry Pink shade) by Skin Genie P80) 

This is an unfiltered picture of me using the Lip And Cheek Stain Alive!
 I like the reddish/pinkish lips it gave me. 
I was actually looking for a lipstick I could use every day and I ended up buying a lip tint instead. And I am definitely glad I did buy this. What persuaded me to buy this is it has lots of positive reviews from its buyers so I decided to try it as well. The tint is actually like the lip stain that you get after drinking strawberry Kool-Aid or after eating cherry candy. I like its bright red color and it's what I use whenever I go out to fetch my kids from school or when I do errands. I just make sure to moisturize my lips before using it for better results. 

Blindspot Healing Stick by Skin Genie (P100) 

I was actually persuaded by the positive reviews of this product. This product is supposed to remedy dark spots on the body so I decided to buy one for my dark spot on my face (beside the mouth). The stick is quite convenient to use and the scent is not overpowering. It's my 5th day of using it, but still no improvement. I will still continue using it and continue my observation. 

Graph-Ink Liner by Careline (P170)

This waterproof eyeliner is pretty good for its price. You just have to let it dry for a few minutes after using. I use this when I go to the mall to add a little beauty to the eyes together with an eyeshadow. 

Chia Seeds (100g) by Manila Superfoods (P135)


I've been drinking aloe vera juice with added chia seeds for a  week and it has improved my bowel movement. Chia seeds are known for its fiber benefits so I made sure to order an item that is good for the digestion and good for my health. I'm just glad to know that Beauty MNL has chia seeds in stock. They're also perfect for smoothies.  

Odor Mate: Guava and Honey (200g) by Figs and Blossoms. 

This is one of the best products I have purchased from Beauty MNL. This deodorizing spray really did wonders to our room. It instantly gave our room a clean and fresh scent and the scent is not that strong. My family especially the kids loved the smell. My son who has allergic rhinitis didn't seem to react to the scent unlike in other room sprays. This is definitely a good find for me. 

That's all! That's a 1000 pesos (Php1,034 to be exact) worth of beauty and wellness products I bought from Beauty MNL and I got FREE shipping and a freebie, too. For the freebie, I got the Tomato Serum and an electronic raffle entry for a chance to win Vice Cosmetics. 

So would I shop in Beauty MNL again? Most definitely yes. Aside from the convenience of shopping online and the hassle-free delivery to my home, I also get freebies and discounts! It's definitely a shopping site for all who seek beauty and wellness. 


This post is sponsored but all opinions are mine and they're based on my personal experience with the products/site.

Take Care of Your Malaysian Virgin Curly Hair

Malaysian virgin hair is one of the most popular choices for wigs, extensions and other hair pieces. This is because virgin hair bundles are soft, not treated with harsh chemicals or products, and can be used to create beautiful, luxurious looking wigs and other hair products. If you have a wig made from Malaysian virgin curly hair, you will want to make sure that it’s kept in excellent condition to ensure a longer life. The following are some essential things you need to know about how to take care of your Malaysian virgin hair.

Be prepared to prevent shedding

Virgin hair does not typically shed very much at all, but Malaysian virgin curly hair is prone to a “normal” amount of shedding when compared to non-virgin hair. To help prevent excess shedding, make sure you are following basic hair maintenance by only brushing it gently, never combing excessively, and never using too much heat or too many products on the hair whenever possible. You can’t stop shedding altogether, but you can prevent the worst of it.


Keep it moisturized

Virgin hair needs to be kept moisturized on a regular basis, especially when it has a curly texture; if you don’t moisturize your hair enough, it can become dried out, brittle, and shed. Curly virgin hair needs to be water-activated every day with a combination water/conditioner mixture; in addition to this daily upkeep, you should be using a moisturizing conditioner often. How often you use conditioner will depend on the condition and quality of the hair.

Use the right shampoo

If the hair is not naturally curly—that is, the curls were not natural to the hair donor—you will also need to use shampoo specifically designed for dry, damaged or chemically treated hair. This will help keep the hair healthier and prevent excessive shedding. If the hair is naturally curly, you do not need to use shampoo designed for damaged or treated hair, but you should still use a quality shampoo.

Never brush it when it’s dry

Normally, you would only brush hair when it's dry-but curly virgin hair vendors should only be brushed when it's wet. Brushing curly hair when it’s dry will cause breakage, frizziness, and shedding. When it comes to what to brush your hair with, you should ideally only brush it with a specialized wide toothed comb or a Denman brush. However, be careful not to comb your piece too much, as this can cause excessive shedding as well as frizziness. As a general rule of thumb, don’t comb your piece more than once or twice a day, and remember to be as gentle as possible to avoid damaging the hair.

Avoid using oil products

One of the biggest mistakes people make with curly hair is using oil-based products. You should never use products with mineral oils on your curly hair. The oils can ruin the curls and even cause shedding. Instead, look for products--moisturizer, conditioner, etc--that are water-based. This will help with moisturizing your hair and prevent shedding and damage.

Vivo Continues To Usher The Industry to the Future with Its Forward-Looking Tech

When young global smartphone brand Vivo entered the mobile industry, the market was dominated by two or three names.But in a matter of years, Vivo changed the game. 

Vivo has been determined to break barriers and introduce technology that ushered the industry into the future. After all, it was Vivo that introduced a 20-megapixel dual front camera in V5 Plus and a 24MP front camera in V7, V7+, and V9.

The V5 is the first smartphone with a 20MP camera

The V5 was then followed by the release of the V5Plus (left) and V5s (right), both with 20MP selfie camera. The V5Plus, meanwhile, has a 20MP+8MP dual rear camera
Aside from the selfie camera, Vivo also paid attention to the users’ need for a bigger screen. Earlier this year, Vivo released the ultimate iteration of a concept smartphone, the APEX™ FullView™, which nearly has a 100% screen-to-body display. The V9, Vivo’s newest flagship, is getting closer togoal with its 90% screen-to-body ratio.

Vivo is also the first to introduce the in-display fingerprint scanner that gives users another method to unlock their smartphones.

Vivo then introduced the first smartphones with 24MP front camera, the V7+ (left) and V7 (right).

Vivo then released the upgrade to its cameras, the V9 with a 24MP AI Selfie Camera and 16MP+5MP dual rear camera.


It is still a wonder what Vivo will do next. For instance, it wowed the tech world with its bezel-less APEX concept smartphone because of its pop-up selfie camera to achieve the 100% screen-to-body ratio. 

Helping the brand unlock the next best thing in the mobile industry are 2,200 dedicated research and development personnel in several R&D centers worldwide—in San Diego, United States and in China, specifically in Shenzhen, Dongguan, Nanjing, Hangzhou, and Beijing. With all its development, it is no doubt that the young smartphone brand is already leading the pack to the future.

Summer Talent Camps: A venue for Discovering, Nurturing, and Celebrating Every Child’s Gift

Taguig   City - May   11,   2018— As parents, summertime is considered the perfect time for children to not only take a break from school work but also to engage in different activities to stay productive.  As such,   we are always on the lookout for summer workshops and talent camps, which can help our kids learn new skills and discover their talents. According to Dr.   Tippy   Tanchanco,   a developmental-behavioral pediatrician, talent camps unlock many opportunities for kids to explore and learn on their own, which is important in discovering their true gifts.


“Children give cues early on. They can be showing signs of what they’re naturally inclined to in just a few months of age. It could be music, motor skills, or language,” added Dr. Tanchanco.“There is no particular age for it, but we need to look for signs that your child is developmentally ready.” She noted that if we want to hone a  child’s athletic abilities, then we have to ensure that he or she is physically fit and ready. The same goes for developing academic abilities. If children show signs of absorbing information, then they are prepared for activities that they can delve into. Dr. Leticia Ho, president and founder of Philippine Center for Gifted Education, couldn’t agree more. She explained that every child is born with potentials but, they do not necessarily develop. They need to be exposed to intervening factors so that they can be developed and transformed into gifts. 


These variables include proper nutrition, proper stimulation, and proper care. Jong Icasiano, BSFT. MSc, a food scientist, and nutritionist, firmly believes that providing our child’s nutritional needs play an important role in nurturing one’s gift or talent. “A proper diet serves as fuel for the child since it is needed for his or her body and brain to achieve optimum development.   Other factors may include boosting their confidence,   good hygiene, enough sleep, and giving them a venue to shine brightly and further explore their full potential,” Icasiano added. This is where the PROMIL® Four i-Shine® Talent Camp 6 comes in. Now on its sixth season, it featured four intensive workshops, under the mentorship   of   experts   in   the   field   of   arts, engineering, dance, and music, such as Teacher Robert Alejandro, Teacher Lei Sta. Maria, Maestro   Ryan   Cayabyab,   and   Teacher   Georcelle   Sy,   respectively.  



These camps ran, simultaneously, from April 2 to May 3 in different locations in Metro Manila. As its culminating activity, all the participants of the four camps showcased what they learned ina recital, held recently at the Kia Theater. It also gathered the parents, as well as the CampMasters, who joined the kids in their performance. Kids who joined the Dance Camp blazed the stage with a number with Teacher Georcelle and the G-Force. Maestro Ryan also sang and played musical instruments with the kids from the Music Camp. The kids from the Arts and Engineering Camp, on the other hand, showcased a performance that highlighted their creativity and engineering skills with Teacher Robert and Teacher Lei. “We are happy to see all the kids perform on stage. They really stood out and shined their brightest and I know that their parents are also very proud of them,” said Yvette Villegas, the brand manager of Promil® Four. 


“This what the PROMIL® Four i-Shine® Talent Camp 6 is allabout—to help hone, share, and celebrate the gift of every child.”Since its inception, the PROMIL® Four i-Shine® Talent Camp helped discover and nurture the young Filipinos’ gift in partnership with parents. It is initiated by PROMIL® Four, a milk brand, specially formulated for children above three years old. It is also the only brand that containsNUTRISSENTIALS®—the combination of the unique and important nutrients that help support mental and physical development to  help Nurture the Gift, together with balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

Unique Artworks Only at Minted

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



I love art. I admit that I can’t do good art, but I do appreciate other artists’ work. Growing up, I remember whenever we stroll in a mall, I would always make sure to walk by the art gallery store just to look at the beautiful paintings being sold there. I would always think that just one good painting or an artwork would really bring good vibes in a household. 

I personally verified my theory during the time I visited my classmate’s house back in college. I remember they had a big house and I saw this huge and beautiful painting of a marketplace with lots of fruits and veggies included in the picture. The painting was hanging on the wall in their dining room. It really did bring their house to life. It was quite big so wherever you sit like in the living room area, you can see the picture. Whenever I sat down, I would look at the painting and relax. Sometimes, when your mind wants to rest,  you just want to look at a good painting or a good picture to relax and reflect.

Find Dashing Dresses at Dresslily

As a plus size woman, I often find it difficult to look for good-looking dresses that have my size on stores in the mall or even boutique stores. Most of the time, I would find a very nice dress, but the problem is the size. Sometimes, I would find the right size, but the design is just not my type of fashion. It sounds like a petty problem, but when you’re looking for a dress that you desperately need to wear on a certain occasion, it gets pretty stressful.

Rosegal: Your One-Stop Shop for Plus Size Fashion and More

I’m quite happy to make this blog post because the fashion site that I’m going to feature is for plus-sized women!!! I’d have to say that I’m also part of the plus size family so I’m quite excited to feature this.

During my teen days, we used to have a sewing machine and my mom would make me some customized dresses just to have a dress for me that fits me perfectly. Thank goodness we have a reliable sewing machine back then that lasted for ages. Here's a nice link that can help you decide which sewing machines are best: https://teachyoutosew.com/types-of-sewing-machines/ 

So without further ado, the site’s name is called Rosegal. I actually find the name quite cute. So what will you find in Rosagal? All the clothing wear you can think of – swimwear, tops, pants, even accessories, etc. Since it’s the summertime, I would like to share some clothes that are fit for the summer time.

Here are some samples of the summer clothes I saw from Rosegal:

Rosegal outfit




Who says you can’t wear black during summer time? Well, my mom used to say it to me, but that was more than a decade ago. Fashion has truly evolved since then and you can see the nice combination of dark colors in this outfit. I also love the floral design of her skirt. I can definitely wear something like this, especially on a poolside party because I’m a fan of dark-colored clothes. I know I mentioned in my previous blog post that dark-colored clothes absorb heat, but I have faith that this outfit won’t.

Let’s go the swimsuit round! I chose this bikini picture because it looks gorgeous. I really believe polka dots never go out of style. I mean doesn’t it look sexy and nice? This swimwear just proves that plus-size fashion is really beautiful and fashionable. 

You may click here and see some more fashionable clothes for plus size and for those who are not plus-sized people that fits any time of the year.  


I would love to share more gorgeous photos, but I’ll just let you visit Rosegal’s site so you can see it for yourself. I assure you that their website is definitely a good find.
