Home with a Relaxing Environment

Not many people have a spa or jacuzzi inside their house. Even if they have enough money to add those into their abode, they don't seem to be interested having these amenities because they are not aware of the health benefits they will get from them. Could you imagine how it feels like living in a house with a relaxing environment? When you come home from work and need some pampering, you don't need to go out anymore and just get yourself some petals and mineral oil. You just need to lit a candle and you're ready for a perfect relaxing night.

I can only have those when I have extra money to relax. I only experienced that last year when I stayed in a resort with family and wished that we could stay there again for long, a week maybe. The hot tub covers are just another great reason to come back again for a vacation. It is safe for a family with kids around leaving no worries at all and the fear that they might fall into the tub. Summer is here again and I could feel it now. The hot weather is telling me to call the resort for early booking.

The Wedding Planner

My friend works as a wedding planner and I could see how she enjoys the job being her own boss of her career. At times she also acts as party host but enjoys a lot with the latter. She admitted that even if the job is rewarding, it also gave her so much stress. Part of her job is to ensure that everything is well organized and that includes working on a plan B in case plan A fails. She also acts as stress absorber so that the bride will look fresh on the day of the wedding. She is also involved in choosing flowers, guest accommodation, dress fittings and more. Of course she cannot do that without having reliable suppliers to count on. Even the preparation of whole ceremony like gazebo decorations for elegant wedding, by which she highly recommends, is included in her task.

The bride and groom would be so much happy with the overall outcome when the wedding is coordinated well. A wedding ceremony on a beach is very beautiful too. I couldn't relate but I could exactly tell how it feels like because I have attended quite a few wedding with the same theme. Are you having a hard time about where and how to plan your wedding? Ask me and I will refer you to her. She's quite a good wedding planner.

My Special Valentine

I was glad that Mcdo's new branch in Forbes has bouquet of flowers in each table on Valentine's Day. Okay, I'm not sure if they have it everyday or they have it for newly renovated and relaunched branch. I saw almost, if not all dining students from nearby university with flowers and cute stuff and Mcdo just made me feel as if I got mine too, it's just that, the bouquet's for everybody else dining. Lol

Daughter came late in our meet up. I already ordered food for us because I was too hungry and my growling tummy couldn't wait anymore for another minute. It was past 1pm already. We headed Manila Eye Specialist for her eye check up and contact lens prescription afterwards.

Thank you Mcdo for the flowers although I couldn't take them home, still I felt I that those flowers were mine on Valentine's Day. That's the only flowers I got on Valentine's Day. How special! :)

How to Add Elegance to Your Home

There's no denying it, the lighting fixtures contribute a lot to make the house look more elegant. If you have a small house, it is just practical and just right to put small chandeliers that will match with the space in your house because it would create an awkward look if you have a small house with small space and you put a bigger one. Those who want to make their house beautiful should put them as additional fixtures. You can find them in smaller than normal size.

Thinking of how to add a new look to your house is just as simple as putting chandelier lighting. There is now better way than this and it also adds value to your home. I am sure you have visited houses or mansions with this kind of lighting and at one time in your life you have dreamed of having them too. So why don't you add this to your dining by which it is normally seen and be surprised with the new look it will create. You can choose simple to elegant designs and if you are smart enough you can find them in a very affordable price. There is no big difference but the price is all worth it.

Right Choice for Future Career

By next year, my older daughter will be graduating from secondary school. She's still undecided whether to take tourism or medical related course. Sometimes she sees herself as a flight attendant but when she saw her cousin in different colors of nursing uniforms, she quickly changed her mind and wants to be like her too.

She looks up to her cousin and I know that a big factor in making a decision would surely be coming from whoever is around her. It seemed like only yesterday when I made a post about preparing her to secondary school both emotional and physical aspect.

In choosing a course, always consider the high and low points in grades. Transcript that is. If your daughter/son is good in Math, it is not necessarily that she will become interested in engineering or course with this subject. Senior high school students are usually given some answering questions and orientation to determine what suitable course to take. Taking what course to take is a big decision making that should be given enough assessment to make the right choice in college life and future career.

Valentine's Day Ideas

Valentine's Day is fast coming. The first indication here is the traffic and the crowd that are now starting to build up in a nearby flower shop. Time flies indeed very fast! As early as today, lovers and couples are already planning out on where to spend the special day. Tickets in different concert venues are almost sold out, both for foreign and local artists. If you are thinking on where to spend that day, think about something special. If you are single, then go out with your friends. You may join with them dressed up in Cowboy Hats in a themed party to make it unique. But if you have a date and want something romantic, then make your reservation earlier in a restaurant for a candle light dinner instead.

It's only four days left before Valentine's Day. If you are still wondering what to give to your loved ones and what color of flower to give, here's a little something to help you out. The color of the flowers indicates a certain kind of feeling too. Color talks. White rose means innocence and loyalty and love, purple color suggests enchantment while the red ones are for passion and true love.

Bed's Baby Shower for Baby IC

"Can't wait for Baby IC," the message in specially designed cake from Blossoms Cake during the baby shower given by the happy mom of two, now going three. Beds as we call her, was even more excited, well, I guess all expectant moms are.

The last time I attended a baby shower was a celebrity event thrown by J&J for celebrity moms. It's no different because, Beds is special to us and Baby IC will bond us all as official kumares, as I myself declared. Teehee. We have enough reason now to make our get together becomes more frequent. Haha. There were games like banana eating contest and the fastest to finish to drink via feeding bottle. I won a Spinkie Pillow in this game sponsored by Mutya Laxa's Spinkie Pillow.

Guess, who won?

The Spinkie Pillow where Jingkie won in banana eating contest and yours truly in feeding bottle drinking contest.

Jes couldn't afford to miss the baby shower and made her special way to be at the event. She was just too quick and just posed for the photo op with her gift to Baby IC. I understand as she's very busy in her Hobby Lovey Store. for Baby IC

Bed's Baby Shower would like to thank the following:

and Sassy.

And my only wish to you Beds.. have a safe and healthy delivery.

and the child in the womb is the canvas
whereon she paints her pictures."

Affordable Dental Care

Some people find it very expensive and do not give much attention to dental care because of the cost that sometimes lead them to a more serious problem. There's an easy and light way of consulting to a dentist without spending much even without family or individual dental insurance. With, you can save a bigger discount at the dentist at a very affordable price.

At least twice a year, I consult a dentist and always give priority to my dental health because I believe that it makes us beautiful when we have a sparkling smile. My kids too. They are used to having a dental check regularly and they are not afraid of going to the dentist. Good thing there are available discounts even if the patients have no plans for this. These are not dental insurance but dental discounts that you can avail anytime when you visit a dentist. For example, if you need some kind of dental care treatments like crowns or oral surgery, you will just have to pay a very minimal amount because there is no limit with these plans. The testimonies of patient who already availed the benefits and advantages of having dental discounts are a living proof on how it works. This is better because of easy process with no hassle at all like health restrictions or paperwork to wait for the activation.

You don't need to be so hard on your life. You just have to be smart in finding ways for easier life. Check you dentist now and the available area and see how to avail the dental plans.

On-Going Maintenance

Life is just so hard sometimes. It's unlucky day for me with everything around me that collapsed including the bulb in our dining room that just burnt out. I sent my computer to the shop for reprogramming and repair. My semi-pro camera broke down too. What else is not working? My elbow albeit kind of sore still managed to finish my list of things to do. Now, I am trying to replace everything except my hand which is of course, unreplaceable. I believe, when it rains, it pours. I don't want to touch my DSLR for the fear that this bad sign might extend further. It's the only one left working. What I need to avail now is cree xm-l for lighting, hard disk part for my CPU and an expert to repair my camera. There's a light at the end of tunnel. I am waiting for a positive sign or a call from the shop with a big hope that my hardrive is now ready for pick up and still in good condition.

February is not a good month for me. I emailed the support group in one of my accounts since I had a trouble opening and posting my review in another device no matter how hard I tried. It seems that the browser is not compatible or maybe some changes need to be settled first. I don't want to put all the files here in a mess so I just wait till I work again in my own laptop.
