5 Reasons Moms Should Wig It Out

Why not,  right?

A wig should be a must in any Mom’s wardrobe.  We’re not talking about clown-like wigs. We’re talking about wigs that actually look and feel like they’re your own hair. Yep they have gotten so advanced these days, thanks to modern technology. These beautiful,  fashionable accessory is popular among top Hollywood celebrities like Gwen Stefani,  Beyonce,  Kylie Jenner,  and of course Lady Gaga. It’s nothing new for fashion models  as well. Coco Rocha, Kendall Jenner, and Gigi Hadid are just few of them.

Now Mommies, here are reasons why we need this in our wardrobe.

Protection for our natural locks.  As hair is definitely our crowning glory,  keeping it healthy is important. So protect them from all sorts of chemicals and stress. Whenever a need arises to get your hair done, and especially if it involves putting on hairsprays, styling gel, or whatnot, pause and get that crowning glory in a box instead.

Let’s give our natural hair a break.  Is there a mom here who has not had hair waxing,  hair rebonding,  hair curling, hair stretching, hair oil treatment,or even a simple trip to the salon to get her hair done in one point in her life?  Probably, none.  I had been blessed with strong,  thick,  jet black hair but with all those fuss about hair-rebonding and waxing,  well,  I gave in and had them once.  My hair has never been the same again.  And aside from this, age,  stress,  and neglect have taken its toll. If you and I are on the same boat, subjecting our hair to further stress is way too much.  Let it rest and rejuvenate,  and wig it out instead.

They’re easy and affordable.  Putting on a wig is easy peazy.  While it takes hours to go to the salon (well because of terrible traffic), and another few hours of excessive shampooing and conditioning,  and chemical-inundated hairstyling, it only takes minutes to put on a wig.  So you’d still have more time to do some other important Mommy stuff.  And also,  wigs are affordable,  some are even cheap.  That one time hair rebonding I had cost me $60, while wig online although some could cost you over a $100 there are many which costs as low as $10 only, and mind you these can be worn again and again whenever you feel like it.

Luxury of choosing the perfect style.  One issue I oftentimes encounter in the salon is the incompetence of some hairstylists to get it done accordingly and properly.  On the other hand, wigs are perfectly cut, colored,  or styled.  So, wigging it is the perfect solution.

Lastly, Moms can be fashionable too.  The taboo on wearing wigs is simply gone,  gone for good. Individuals of all walks of life are into wigs.  The reasons for wearing could vary but whatever the reasons are,  wearing a wig is just simply the new in thing nowadays.  If they are in, why can’t we?

Love this!
..and this.
This is one fashion trend that Moms ought to have.  It is safe,  saves us time,  and could boosts our confidence without hurting our hair and our pockets.

Mother’s Day 2017

It’s Mother’s Day in Thailand.

In my 8 years as a Mom,  I had been greeted by so many friends,  colleagues,  and even acquaintances on Mother’s Day but never  from my own child.  This year’s Mother’s day is different and special.  For the first time I received a Mother’s day letter from my daughter.  Here.


She wrote this in school,  and wanted to surprise me.  I felt a lump building up in my throat as I was reading it.  It is simple but the gesture is just so sweet.  Earlier when we went grocery shopping she bought me a bolster and a towel (which I paid for,  Lol).  It’s OK.  It’s really the thought that counts.  I was so touched!

And then later on she secretly made me another card complete with Thai translation ^_^.

 

Oh so sweet!

 

Preloved Items for Babies and Toddlers

I remember feeling so happy about a new something given to me by an older cousin.  I realized later that those were preloved. I thought at that time that it was a practice peculiar to my family only. I come to know much later that it is a universal thing.
Hand me downs are practical way of dressing babies and toddlers.  For one,  kids these ages grow so fast, so apparels are worn only for a few times. And also,  this saves parents a few bucks for more important things which should be bought new and unused.
Preloved items for babies and toddlers include.
1. Shirts, dresses, shorts,  and pants
2. Baby blankets. If you’re planning of using cloth diapers then buy these new.
3. Some baby toys
4. Baby bags and accessories
5. Baby crib, walker,  tub

Things that parents shouldn’t buy second hand.
1. Undies
2. Towels
3. Stuff toys especially if your family has a history of asthma.
4. Socks, shoes, baby bib and mittens

Has this been a thing practiced in your family?

Ways on How to Administer Medicine to a Child: Mom’s Style

These following tips are based on personal experience as a mom.  Without a doubt,  parents have different practices at home when it comes to their child.  The tips here might not be to your liking, but these however could give you some ideas.
Looking at a sick, in pain child is just the most heartbreaking sight in the world. If it’s only possible to take and have that pain instead. Without question I would.

Do you feel the same way?

So when my child is sick I will turn the world upside down just to take those medicine inside his/her throat. ^_^ Here are the things I did to administer medicine especially when my kids were young. These are in no particular order.

1. Secretly mix it in milk.  This is effective if the med is not bitter.
2. Use a dropper and squirt the med inside the mouth secretly, fast,  and abruptly.
3. Antibiotics are usually bitter so I mix this in just the right amount of chocolate drink so they finish the whole thing.
4. If it is a tablet,  I place it in soft fruit like banana,  ripe papaya so they could just easily swallow it without chewing.
5. Or crush the tablet and mix in a little sugar.
6. One time,  telling them that they could drink softdrinks after taking their medicine was effective.
7. After my son got hospitalized he told me he does not want to go back,  so I used that to make him take his medicine.

There you go folks.
If you have got your own practices at home,  please do share.  It might be helpful to other parents or parents to be.

What Happens When Mood Swinger Mom Meets Drama Queen Daughter?

 

The struggle is real, believe me.  The result depends on what side of the mood spectrum is Mom at that moment.

From experience a drama queen is always a drama queen at all times, may she be dealing with simple or complicated things.

The gravity of the impact lies on the mood of the moment.  When Mom is in the mood, circumstances are dealt with calmly, patiently, and even humorously. However when Mom is in a dark mood, a petty circumstance could mushroom into an atomic bomb within seconds.

As a Mom, this is a great parenting concern.  I’ve realized and seen the negative effects of my blurting out and “mismanagement” during those times when I’m in a lighter mood. But like what I’ve mentioned, it is  a tremendous task. It is a struggle that up until now is unresolved.

Moms out there who might be in the same boat as I am or if you happen to know of someone who was able to successfully overcome this, please do share your thoughts below.  It’d be deeply appreciated.

Ideas For A Small Bathroom

Mom on a budget

Even if you have a big house, you still might be constricted by small space in certain rooms. Usually, bathroom is the major culprit. This problem comes from the fact that we have to fit so many different items within this room. Each one of them takes a considerable amount of surface leaving us with so little space to move around. As you well know, this can pose a major problem given that bathroom is a place where we like to relax and take a nice shower after a long, hard day.

At the same time, this restriction poses a great problem if you wish to experiment and create something beautiful. Different rules apply when it comes to interior design of a small bathroom in comparison to a big one.
However, you shouldn’t be too concerned. There are some easy tricks which can help you arrange your bathroom space making it more functional.

1. Put mirror in a frame

There is a lot of clutter in small bathrooms. Because of this, we are restricted by the items which are within it. Even if you wish to decorate it, you will still have to consider various items and equipment so that you can make a sound composition. Instead of trying to make sense out of this chaos, you can try something completely different. Focus on one item and try to avert attention to it. Mirror is a logical choice. Most of us (consciously or subconsciously) look at the mirror as soon as we step into a bathroom. Use it to your advantage. Put a nice frame around it and make it the centerpiece of the room. By doing so, person will disregard all the other stuff and concentrate on this one item.

2. Organizing your make-up

Although you can keep your make-up someplace else, bathroom is the logical choice for it. However, if you don’t have enough space, it can cause all sorts of headache. Naturally, you will always put it in a cupboard or closed section in order to protect it from potential splashing. Small bathrooms can accommodate only small cupboards. Have in mind that besides make-up, you have to store various other objects inside such as clippers, spare soaps, deodorants, razors etc. Best way to get more space is to buy small plastic boxes for make-up. Now, you might argue that cases do the same job. But, there is a big difference. When make-up is in transparent boxes, you can easily see what you need and get it. This way you can avoid any mess which is caused when searching through cases. Also, it looks much nicer.

3. Rolling your towels

This practice is really common for hotels. Your probably noticed it over the years and wondered why they are doing it. When you are stacking towels one on top of another, you always have to take the one from the top regardless of which one you need. Otherwise, if you take the one from the middle or bottom, you will likely mess up the other ones. As a result, they will all look badly folded. If you wish to have a nice and cozy bathroom, you have to avoid this at all costs. After rolling your towels, you can put them vertically. This means that you can pick just the towel that you need, big ones for body, medium for hair and small for make-up. Simultaneously, by rolling them and putting them in a basket, you can make a nice arrangement. Your towels will look like a bouquet of roses which is enough of a reason to apply this trick.

4. Use boxes to your advantage

The biggest issue with small bathrooms is the way you are using ground space. In other words, your cupboards will usually be positioned under the sink or above it. In most of the cases, they will be floating around. This is a great thing as it gives you more space. Nevertheless, there is still a lot of space which can be used to store various objects. Use different boxes and place them on the ground level. Within them, you can keep spare toilet paper, detergents and other things which you seldom use. By doing this, you are accomplishing two things: you are both protecting them from water and other spills and keeping them out of visitors’ sight.

DIY Gift Wrapping

banner kids corner

My daughter loves to draw. She started to show interest at a very young age.  I saw how her drawings improve through the years.  She is very proud of her drawings, and we have always made sure she gets all the encouragement and praises she needs to go on.  She draws anytime and every time an idea sparks and she does this wherever she is at that moment.

One instance, we have to attend a birthday party of one of her friends. Although we were informed days before, I was too busy that I forgot to prepare for it.  So on the said day, I hurriedly bought a gift for the little girl but forgot to buy a gift wrap.  I was a bit panicking since there were still other things to do. Good thing, my daughter had a great idea, DIY gift wrapping.

On a paper she drew a family, wrote a greeting, and added some designs. She used this to wrap the gift. She recycled a ribbon, and voila.

Mom On A Budget New Toy

We’ve recently acquired a new blender from a trusted brand.  I am particularly excited, and immediately tried it.  Verdict? Great.  I am so happy.

My family loves smoothies or just a simple fruitshake.  But I stopped doing it for a while because my old blender (check it out) was not working well after just a few times of use.  I was so disappointed.  But then I thought it shouldn’t be a surprise since I got it on a discount.  Now I am not saying discounted items are not good.  I’ve got quite a few discounted things which are working perfectly.  However we could not deny the fact that there are reasons why they are on sale. One of these could be because they’re rubbish.  I felt like I just wasted that few bucks I paid for it.  I definitely did not get a good value for my money.

The problem with my old blender was leakage.  It couldn’t hold the fluid inside and leaks out from the bottom.  It was probably due to the rubber at the bottom (which I think most blenders have)  not working well. It could be due to a flawed design, or something else. Anyway, my new toy (blender) has a one-piece body (see the photo below), so there’s no way fluid will leak out.  It is BPA free and the padding in the box is carton, not Styrofoam.  It has suction cups so it stays in place.  Although it does not have blending modes to choose from I don’t really mind, for the price of $28, I think I definitely got my money’s worth. It’s not as if I’m going to use it for a fruitshake business.  It’s pulse and single-blend modes work just fine.

I’m loving it!

Stylishly Versatile

After-work means going-out time for my family.  Park, mall, and the beach are few of our favorite destinations.  However, having to go home and change into something is just too tiring. It takes time, energy; and it fades the thrill and excitement of the moment.  The yehey-we’re-going-out glee is gone.  So there could be three possible scenarios thereafter. The plan is postponed, completely cancelled, or  you’d just go with the motion of doing it because it has already been planned.

zalora thailand 2

So I thought a versatile attire should do the trick.  What I needed was something I can wear in the office and yet still be comfortable wearing while strolling around with my family later.

Zalora Thailand

Recently I got a panelled Pencil Skirt from Zalora Thailand collection. It came exactly when I needed it. The timing is just perfect. Anyway, it is elegant. It is definitely comfortable, one important quality I look for in my clothing. I love that it is made from stretchable material.  A pencil skirt sometimes can feel restrictive but because it is stretchable, you can move around comfortably without looking stiff and choked. The fabric has just the right feel.  It is neither too thin nor too thick.  It feels cool to the skin.  Being in Thailand where the weather can be very hot, it is something important to consider.

You might want to check out their wide variety of skirts, or you can simply click Zalora Thailand banner at the sidebar for discounts.
