Building your dreams

I don’t have my own house just yet but I am planning to build one of my own. There are so many things to consider first when building your own house. Such as the size of the house, how many bedrooms do you need, where it is located and many more. It is also important to think of where you want to build your house, if you want it in the urban area or in the rural area. After deciding the location, you need to decide about its size, how big or small it is that would be enough to cater for your needs.

As for me, I want to build my house in my home town because it is where my business is located and I want to raise my children in my home town. The perfect location will be in the town proper because it is where the school, church, clinic, grocery stores and market are located. I don’t want a big house because bigger house means bigger expenses for the electricity and water bills, so I prefer a small one but just enough for my family.

One thing that I would love to choose myself for my house is the bathroom lighting aside from the lighting in the whole house. It is important for me because I want my home to be perfect and I would love to have a different style from the other houses in my home town. A contemporary lighting for the whole house will bring something unique and different I guess. My home will look great and cool at the same time.

I also want a big front yard and backyard. I want to have benches and flower garden in front of my house while vegetable garden at my backyard. We have different tastes I guess in building our homes but it’s not bad to check out other people’s houses for some ideas.

Three Personalized Gift Ideas for Moms of Multiples

When a family member or loved one is pregnant with multiples, the logistics of the situation can quickly become overwhelming. The mother may receive multiples of many items, with no way to differentiate what belongs to whom. This can lead to cross-contamination between the children if one of them is sick, as well as size confusion. Here are some ideas for the new mom of multiples to help keep items separated by child.

Engraved Key Tags

Key tags are great for marking individual diaper bags, storage bins of clothing and other child-specific gear. These can be especially useful if the kids are not all of the same gender or have an appreciable size difference.

Monogrammed Baby Books

When more than one child results from the same pregnancy, the temptation to create a single baby book can be overwhelming. However, the children deserve to have their own individual books to keep as adults. Sites such as GirlyTwirly.com have three-ring options, and hobby and baby stores also offer plenty of options for creating one-of-a-kind baby books.

Non-Toxic Permanent Markers

The new mom will want to label her thermometers, pacifiers, and medications with the baby’s initials to avoid confusion. This can save her a lot of frustration with passing on of colds and viruses. Having a few markers around is essential.

Moms of multiples face unique challenges. While every new mom needs piles of burp cloths, diapers and onesies, these particular items will help her keep things separated by which baby they belong to. This will cut down on frustration and cross-contamination between the children.

Tips on how to get a better shave for MEN

Shaving is something that most men do on a daily basis, especially men who have jobs that do not permit facial hair. Because men start to shave in their teens, they develop habits early on that determine the way they will shave for the rest of their life. The problem with this is the fact that many of these men are never shown how to shave properly. Because of this, they end up having regular skin irritations resulting from their poor shaving techniques. There is no reason that a man should have to endure these issues. With a little instruction and the right shaving products, any many can learn how to shave properly in not time at all. Here are some tips regarding how to get a better shave.

1. The proper use of heat and cold

Although it is one of the basic fundamentals of shaving, it is amazing how many men do not understand how to properly use heat and cold. It is much easier to shave your skin when it is hot and moist. Therefore, you might want to buy a special mirror that is designed to hang in the shower. Shaving while you are taking a shower is an outstanding way to protect your skin and avoid razor burn. If you prefer to do your shaving in a place that is a little more dry, you should shave immediately after getting out of the shower. This will ensure that your skin is still moist and your pores are open. After you completely finish your shave, use cold water to rinse yourself off. The cold temperature will lower the chance that your skin will become irritated.

2. Always shave with the grain

You should always be certain to shave in the direction that your hair is growing. This can sometimes be difficult in areas like the neck, where the hairs will grow in many odd directions. In the neck region, shaving with the grain may not always be possible, but do your best to go in the right direction. Shaving against the grain invites the possibility for skin irritation.

3. Use a moustache trimmer

If you decide to grow a moustache, do not use a typical beard trimmer to shape it. A moustache trimmer has advanced settings that allow you to do more things a regular beard trimmer can’t do. You should also apply moustache wax regularly.

My Classmate’s Wedding

I love to attend wedding events simply because weddings make my heart leap for joy knowing that there are still people, in this day and age, who believes in happy ever after or are still willing to tie the knot and be with someone they love for the rest of their lives. My classmates, John and Phoebe, invited me for their wedding celebration last year and I obliged.

I went to the event wearing this beautiful pink lace-dress and matched it with my open-toes high heels shoes from Payless (which I bought on SALE). I am not a make-up beauty junkee, but I prefer to have a light make up on when attending events. I am glad that I had this make-up for free because my friend who teaches make-up classes needs models for his students. So I got a free make-up session just before the wedding.

John and Phoebe had been college sweethearts and I have seen in my own two eyes their undying love for each other. I am glad that I attended their wedding rites because I know that what they have is true and the only thing missing in their lives are their wedding vows. CONGRATULATIONS John and Phoebe! Thank you for making us believe that true love still exist.
