Making Your Home a Safe Place for Your Kids

When you have babies who are beginning to crawl and explore, it is time for parents to think of the child’s safety in the home. Adults watching over the child have things to do around the house and sometimes little children can easily wander out of the adult’s sight while the adult is engrossed in their task.

Little toddlers do not know the danger and they can grab hold of sharp objects and end up with serious injuries. They could climb up a chair to reach a cabinet filled with medication or poisons, or kitchen drawers filled with knives and sharp utensils. Safety products for kids such as safety latches and locks on cabinets and drawers can keep medicine, poisons, knives, etc. from your kids.

If your home is a two storey house, installing a safety gate at the bottom and top of the stairs will help prevent children from falls. Safety gates can also prevent kids from entering bathrooms or rooms with possible danger. Kids are getting smarter each day and the safety gates should not be easily dislodged by pulls or tugs.


When choosing safety gates, make sure that there is no possibility of the child’s head or neck being entrapped. Other safety devices for children may include a child locator to know the where about of the child. Safety devices can also include window guards and safety netting to help prevent falls from windows, balconies, or decks. Corner and edge bumpers are used to prevent injuries from falls against sharp edges of furniture in the home. Look for bumpers that can be fixed securely on furniture. Another important cover is the power outlet cover to help prevent electrocution. Get outlet covers that can be securely fitted and cannot be easily removed by the child.


One safety product that is gaining popularity is the homespy cameras. Many home owners are fitting spy cameras in their home to monitor movements of their maid especially when the maid is left alone in the house with their little kids. Parents need to keep tabs to know that their kids are safe in the care of the maid or other family members. Through the spy cam, employers can also find out whether their maid has been secreting entertaining her friend in the absence of their employers. Through the spy cam, owners are able to monitor the home to make sure both the kids and maid are safe from intruders.

Girl Talk: Be The Boss of Your Period.

Mood swings are common for women during or before the menstruation period. I never noticed I am having those irritability, anger and sensitivity until I heard my husband warned and reminded my tween to be extra careful not do things that makes me angry especially on  my "red days".

I heard my 'tweenager' of being thankful for being a boy that doesn't need to go through this monthly periods. As explained, women have fluctuating hormone levels during these periods, thus ending up having a roller coaster of emotion.

Women have different signs, level of pain and emotions during these days that also indicates different  ways to cope with this emotional state.


Food cravings, fatigue, anxiety, and trouble focusing are some of those common symptoms. As for me, it does include abdominal cramps and lower back pain. It doesn't just affect physically and emotionally  but can even hurt our schedule too! Sadly, a reality that every woman encounters.

The first period usually occurs at age 12. I can still remember every detail on how I survived my first period. Looking back, I hated it when my mother do not introduced me right away on disposable pads and instead taught me how to use the reusable cloth that serves as pads. Imagine my shock and disgust of having to clean up for each and every use?!

Plain awful. My innocent mind was blown away and felt really uncomfortable. Today's generation have their own version of reusable napkins which is way better than folding a piece of cloth to make it looks like a pad. 

Oh, how I am loving today's generation, thankfully my daughter will never have to go through the mess that I experienced before. Here's some of Important Rules to take on How to Survived each and every period:
  • Find the brand that suits your needs, works well and makes you feel confident.
  • Keep in mind to change pads every 2 to 3 hours.
  • Properly disposed used pads by rolling it up and putting it in the wrapper.
  • Use sanitary pads with wings to avoid side stains, or better to use Knixteen underwear for periods for a more reliable protection. It is a period underwear that serves as back-up protection against inevitable leaks, odor, and moisture, to stay confident no matter what time of the month is.
  • Give in to food cravings or subscribe to Happy Days Club where hand pick chocolates, snacks, teas, sanitary products, comforting items will be sent straight to your door. But, it don't always have to be sweet. Some women crave salty or fatty foods like chips, pizza and burgers.
  • Make sure to get important nutrients during menstruation, mix it it up with some fresh, whole foods to have alongside your sweet treat.
  • Embrace the time of the month, take extra care and do something nice for yourself to lift up the mood.
  • Go curl up and get enough sleep to feel refresh and rejuvenated.
  • Mark the date of your cycle to track your period to know when to expect.

These are the  important points to take especially for  first timers. Actually, there is nothing to worry about if we can take full control and have it covered by our tested ways along with our  most suitable and trusted brands.

Acuaverde Beach Resort Review

After our first summer escape at Club Balai Isabel, I promised my kids another summer getaway, and this time we headed for a beach trip at Laiya, San Juan Batangas.

Finally, after a long argue with husband why I choose Laiya instead for a more  convenient location, I won over to experienced the much anticipated beach escape and relaxation at a white beach resort which is tagged by the husband as "too far from the Metro".


Oh well, to his surprised we traveled for only 2.5 hours as he was thinking for a 3 to 4 hours drive.

We arrived early for our 2pm check-in. However, we are informed that 1 out of 3 rooms we reserved is available for early check-in. 


They served Tamarind juice as welcome drinks, and the room has complimentary Tamarind Candy snack!


Entertain the kids with Koi Fish Feeding! Just ask at the reception for FREE fish pellet.



Since its lunch time already, I requested to take our arrival lunch instead of having it for the next day. The food is tasty, we are all satisfied and took advantage of the buffet meal plus the relaxing view!




They don't have a swimming pool! My first choice was Acuatico Resort that has Infinity Pool but it's fully booked, as always. You know I've been trying to reserved there for a looong time but couldn't get a slot.


Overall, husband agrees that this resort was a good choice. Although we find the rooms a bit small, it was never an issue as it is well maintained and the staff were courteous and approachable.


The resort offers Water Sports Activities, we only got to try the Kayak which is FREE to use.
  • Kayak
  • Beach Volleyball
  • Jet Ski
  • Fly Board
  • Banana Boat
  • Twin Banana Boat
  • Speed Boat
  • Fly Fish
We'd been wanting to try the Banana Boat but others were eating or having their own time and so we didn't assembled our group for the ride. Oh atleast we tried Kayak and my youngest enjoyed the ride with her grandpa.






There's a playground but the kids didn't bother to jump in as they were too focus on playing and building sand castles at the beach.




My sisters bought some pearl accessories as souvenirs.

While I am too busy with my photo shoot with husband.



This Ruched High Waist Two Piece Swimsuit from Rosegal works perfect for hiding the pooch.


The place is well lit at night, so the photo shoot continues... 😉
The grilled salmon makes me have my second cup of rice! The kids loved it too...

The meals were all good, sulit! I actually take note the recipe for their Egg Omelette.
This getaway helps us build another memorable vacation for the whole fam. I don't regret choosing this resort and the place is definitely worth the price.

A relaxing time at the beach is the best summer escape! Also, the best place for all those sun-kissed photos with special help  from husband. 😀



Enjoy the summer vacation, everyone!

Tires – Most Important Accessory in a Motor Cycle

One of the most crucial motor cycle parts of any type of automobile are the tires of that vehicle. Yes, the tires are always in constant contact with surface that is the roads therefore they offer a great amount of reliability and stability to the person driving the vehicle. A driver must know about the importance of having good tires for his or her vehicle; you can see more to read about various benefits of owning durable tires. Buying a new vehicle is a big expense, most of us have to go loan payment systems but to invest in good tires is equally necessary to ensure your safety.

Safety from tires –

  •      The improper tires that are bald can easily blowout which leads to unwanted accidents mostly because the rider loses control on his vehicle.
  •      Good tires improve the vehicles performance, as well. The engine is a very important factor to decide a vehicle performance but if you are running on bad tires then it’s a waste to have a good and expensive automobile.
  •       Poor tires affect the brake mechanism too. When you hit the brakes, the car is expected to stop but if you have bad tires then the vehicle can slide and slip before stopping.
Safety of the driver – the driver is always at risk if he is running a vehicle with poor tires. In case, if they blow out then the people in the vehicle will have to suffer. For instance, if the vehicle tires are not proper mud throwers then you can get stuck into some place along with your car, this is why the use of Atv mud tires is always suggested for heavy vehicles.

Save money with investing in durable tires – There are so many online as well as offline stores that offer motorcycle tires for sale of good quality at discounted prices. In actual sense, investing in good tires once will cost you less rather in investing in poor tires every year. Buying poor tires and changing them or getting them repaired will total up and cost you more than buying good tires once that are safe, durable and long-lasting.


We love to buy new cars, and bikes. We look the best colors, the most attractive designs, the most soothing music system along with comfortable seats and proper air conditioning. We try to buy vehicles with more and more luxury features in it, but the most important and first thing that we should look for before buying a new vehicle, is the amount of safety features it is offering the driver as well as the passengers. The most important factor that control safety in any vehicle is the tires.

Therefore, one should never compromise his or her safety for few bucks. It is better to spend more on good quality tires rather than risking you life. You can check the online stores, if you are lucky than you can even get some of the best discount deals on high quality and branded tires for your vehicle.
