Raising a Musically Inclined Child

Music plays an important role in developing child's motor skills. Introducing them to music at an early age provides a numerous lifetime benefits. Studies shows that children who are expose to music are more likely to experience higher self-esteem, self-awareness, improves attention span and will be more likely to participate on physical activities.

The following are helpful suggestions for a Child's early and often introduction to music:

1. Sing to your child. 

Show how much you enjoy singing, and before you knew it, your child will actually sing along with you. Sing at the top of your lungs even though you don't have an "interesting" voice! It may sound a desperate screaming or shouting  as some of us admittedly  can't carry a tune, but who cares? your child still thinks you have a lovely voice and you will definitely inspire them.

2. Dance with your child.

Kids are attracted to the beat of the music and will definitely enjoy moving, swaying, or bouncing to their hearts' delight. It's not only fun and entertaining, but also provides a good exercise. You can joyfully watch their dance moves based on how the music makes them feel.

3. Introduce child-appropriate music.

To help engage your child in music, help him/her to  internalize and focus on basic music patterns and choose age-appropriate music to instill.

4. Consider enrolling in formal music lessons.

If your child seems interested playing musical instruments and making music, encourage him/her by enrolling at music lessons. Early exposure to singing, guitar, piano, and other types of music lessons shows more sophisticated brain responses to music. Keyboard is the best instrument to learn for great coordination.

Look for instructor who are trained to handle kids and offers a unique and powerful method, just like Music Institution at Northampton Massachusetts piano lessons

5. Build Memories with music.

Share your favorite song/s to your child and create life-time memories. Back home, we had 'Sunday's Best' where my parents plays beautiful  Oldies but Goodies music. The songs played from early morning till we had our lunch, we ended up having a lazy-cozy afternoon, a great family tradition that never fails to give a relaxing ambiance.

Overall, the simplicity and complexity of music contributes not only to a child's brain development but also improves physical and social skills, encourage creativity and other numerous  significant benefits.

So, starting with your child's musical development as early, or even before they were born is definitely a must!

My ZALORA Shopping Experience Review

This is the first time I shopped online for my own clothes and accessories. At first, I was hesitant to continue with my order thinking that those tops may look good at the model but not with me. 

It's good that the images of the clothes zoomed in for crucial details where I can convince myself that it was the perfect choice.

The product details and description with measurement guide really helped me have the right fit! By the way, I mostly relied on model's body measurement as follows:
  • Chest: 34 Waist: 25 Hips: 36
  • Size of model's garment: S
So, I am positive to look this pretty wearing these tops (whatttt?!):

Vaness Butterfly Sleeves Lace Top

This one's perfect for a more creative casual look:
Nancy Two-Tone Blouse

I also browsed at the Jewelry collection and found this bib necklace set that features a mixture of shimmery faux stones embellished over a cut-out plate centerpiece and complemented with gorgeous matching stone earrings.

Facted Faux Stone Bib Necklace Set
I added these items in my cart and with just a few clicks, voila! The items was delivered after 2 days.

I love ZALORA's classy and neat  packaging. 

I appreciate the text messages they sent to keep me updated with my order status. First message received was to inform that they received my order, 2nd says that my items are packed already, and the last confirming the delivery within the day and saying 'thank you for shopping'.

I must say that they provide Customer Care at its finest.

The items comes with a Return Slip incase I have reasons to request for exchange or refund. How nice di ba?

Now, I can say that the overall shopping experience with Zalora deserves  a five stars rating for an outstanding Customer Service alongside with fashionable selections of shoes, clothing and accessories.

Adorable Kids' Dresses at ZALORA Marketplace

"They may not really be made of sugar and spice and everything nice, but little girls will surely give you thousands of reason to smile." 

My little girl!

As a mother to a toddler girl, cute dresses and other girly stuff  always excites me. Those adorable accessories, shoes, laces, cheery prints, ruffles, simple to elegant dresses, unique tops and skirts, and having a wide selection and choices for dressing up makes some of the reasons why I love having a girl.

A recent buy is a mother-daughter terno set of summer dresses from a tiangge at the mall. I choose fashionable and fab, but budget friendly items only.

I contain myself of not buying branded items at regular price. Instead, I choose to wait until the price marked down and avail of selected SALE items to enjoy quality finds with huge savings.

Also, I found a lot of cute tops for baby girls on Zalora Marketplace as well as girls accessories, shoes, tutu skirts, dresses and other fashionable clothing for my mini me.

Good thing, I can enjoy a 15% discount of any items upon check out. They offer fashionable pieces with the extensive selection of kids' products.

Here's my personal choice in my wishlist that hopefully will be added on my empty cart:

BAILEY Peplum Swimsuit
SUMMER Tiered-Backless Top
Little Velvet Dress
POLKA-DOTTED Dress in Beige
Denim TROPICAL Dress
ZALORA offers comfortable and good quality dresses at the best prices, and having the convenience shopping in the comfort of our homes is a big plus!

As for me, I have gained trust and confidence shopping online as it satisfies my need for convenience and speed. Online discount offers becomes a welcome opportunity for me to save time and money. In fact, I got my latest online purchase at 60% OFF, a Big Children's wooden dollhouse for my little girl.

I came to realized just now that what makes me really giddy about all these 'daughter stuff' is that it becomes a perfect opportunity for me to relive my childhood memories and meant having a special  mother-daughter connection.

Cheers to more finds and bonding moments to come!
