Natural Cowhide Rugs For You

When it comes to your home, you want to make sure that you property is equipped with the best materials. After all, the look of your home says a lot about who you are. 

That's why you should definitely invest in a stylish and natural cowhide rug. These nature-made rugs provide so many different benefits to the homeowner.

Natural Beauty

One of the main reasons why people turn to cowhide for their rugs is because this material offers a unique combination of both colors and shapes. There are no two cowhide rugs that are exactly the same.

Sure, they come in similar shades of black and white, but each is different from the next. You can also tend to tell the breeds that each rug was made from based on the colors being used. For the most part, though, cowhide rugs come in solid black, gray, brown and white.

Remember, since animals come in all different sizes, you can find rugs that are small, medium and large.

Versatility Cow hide rugs do not have to be used for one specific reason. Instead, these rugs are very versatile. You can use cowhide rugs to adorn walls almost like a framed painting or as simply something to stand on.

The options are endless here. It's all about your personal taste in interior design.

However, many people like getting rugs made from cowhide because this material is actually very soft and comfortable. Besides using the cowhide as a wall hanging or rug, you can also turn it into a throw.

This will bring natural flair to any room in the house. It really is becoming the new wave in decorating.


It is important to note that cow hide is very tough. That means this material can withstand whatever you throw its way. This type of rug won't fall apart with the wear and tear.

Instead, it will stay looking the same way it did when you first got it. Cowhide is not only as tough as leather, but also very soft and pliable. That's why it makes for such a great rug.

Easy to Care For

Another reason why so many homeowners opt for rugs made out of cow hide is because they are super easy to clean. All you need is a damp sponge filled with warm water and some mild soap.

From there, just rub gently onto the spot covered with dirt and you will notice a real difference. Other than that method, you can also clean the cowhide by simply giving the rug a good shaking. This will fluff the thick coat and get rid of any debris that may be stuck in there.

Helps with Breathing

Homeowners love having a cowhide rug in their home because they won't have to worry about allergic reactions. That's because these rugs are actually hypo-allergenic which means you will be able to breathe freely in your home, while still bringing a charming and stylish piece to your home.

Press Release: Learn Ballet from Prima Ballerina Lisa Macuja- Elizalde

Nothing beats learning from the expert. When it comes to classical ballet, no one could ever surpass the achievements of Lisa Macuja- Elizalde.

Lisa started taking lessons in ballet at age 8. She would later become a scholar at the Vaganova Choreographic Institute also known as the Academy of Russian Ballet at Saint Petersburg, Russia. She is the first foreigner to join Russia's Kirov Ballet.

In 2014, Lisa celebrated 30 graceful years of stunning ballet performances. She has happily retired from performing and is now focused on mentoring future ballerinas as Directress of the School of Ballet Manila. Lisa's school is the only Philippine ballet school directly associated with the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet in St. Petersburg, Russia. 

"What makes us different from other companies is our commitment to the highest standards of classical ballet based on our Russian Vaganova roots," Lisa explains.

One of the main training techniques of classical ballet, the distinct characteristic of this style is the ballerina's flexible shoulder motion as each step is executed. Other dancers simply move with "square" shoulders.

"The Vaganova method involves the entire body. Arms, legs and torso move in perfect harmony. Dancers trained by this method jump higher and do powerful turns. The technique require dancers to remain in the air for a long time, as if they are floating," she said.
If your children are showing interest in dance, why not send them to ballet classes during the summer vacation? Ballet Manila offers several novel and fun programs for young and talented dancers. Apart from the basics of the dance art, the classes follow a holistic approach by including fun activities for a more engaging summer endeavor.

For example, apart from ballet techniques taught in the baby ballet class, the students learn to play musical instruments and create props using fabrics. The intensive dance exercises in the intermediate class is combined with street dance, yoga and pilates.

Playing Bingo during my leisure time

As you guys already know that I am a happy mother of two and love the small experiences that I share with each one of you. I hope that along with all the small things and all the information and tips on parenting your lives have become a little easier.

However, today I am in the mood to share some fun experience while I was indulging in a game of bingo online. Well I had put my kids to sleep and it was then that the thought of bingo struck me. I have played in many bingo sites but didn’t get the opportunity to try out NewLook Bingo a bingo site which is just a couple of years old and has also gone through a great make over just around December 2014.

I was super elated to win some easy cash in no time in their free bingo rooms. They have two free bingo rooms exclusively for their players and both funded and non funded players can play in these. However, the ‘Free Cash’ bingo room is exclusively for the funded players.

As a welcome offer I got a £15 simply for signing up and then there was the tenner that I spent and I got to play with a whopping £60. Also I loved their mobile bingo interface. Well I checked it out as I liked playing in there and hence thought that playing on the move would be great. If you travel a lot and if you need a hiatus from work then NewLook bingo on mobile would help you through the tiring phase.

Candy and the Cankersaur ebook Review

Developing early reading habits creates a life long love for books for young children. I started reading books with my eldest when he was 2, and with my youngest as early as 7mos.

Every night before bed time, I let my child choose what book to read. He sometimes ended up picking 2 to 3 books for the night.

Reading encourages a thirst for knowledge, promotes literacy and builds listening skills and imagination.

As I got the chance to review this Candy and the Cankersaur ebook, we had an addition to our storybook collection that is fun, exciting,  and provides a moral lesson.

Candy and the Cankersaur is a story about a little girl who has a very busy daddy that buys her a dinosaur pet!

The adventure began when Cank, her dino pet gone missing. Having a dino pet makes the story interesting and the book was perfectly illustrated to trigger child's imagination.

As a bedtime story Picture Book it’s aimed for children ages 3-6. As a read-alone Picture Book it’s appropriate for children ages 6-9.

I highly recommend this book for a total adventure for kids before bed time. I bet they would ask for an adorable pet dinosaur to be trained and be their friend.

You can download the story for just $1.99 for your iPad, iPod or iPhone. Kindle and Kobo versions are also available.

Lego Birthday Party Theme

Note: This is a combination of Lego Movie and Lego City Party Theme, for a Lego lover birthday celebrant.

Welcome to my DIY craft and stuff for my my son's 7th Birthday! We have Lego Party Theme as per request. Since we celebrated at home, I am in-charged with every detail from food, decors, souvenirs, game prizes etc., which I enjoyed and I think may have over done-it.

I prepare my lego man cut-outs that will serve as my lego banner. I printed a lego man figure as my pattern in cutting out solid colors of cartolina and construction papers. I pasted it in a white paper to put up all the pieces and draw a face!

Lego banderitas! Perfect for the theme, proudly D-I-Y
