    3 Ways Minimising Your Screen Time

    During the pandemic, we are staying home a lot. Means we are going to spend time facing the screen contacting people and love ones. The good thing about being home, we can work safely with our family. Being a family who’s promoting more time, simplifying our schedule. I came to try so many time management tools, clearing the calendar and seeing our productivity prioritising family only. We hang out with friends but we always make sure that we spend more time with each other by simply eliminating things that are not adding value to our living. Resources are everywhere and…

    Fresh Space: Benefits Of Toy and Book Rotation

    We have been struggling since I worked full time and Laia has accumulated so many toys from the past occasion, like birthdays, Saint Nicholas, Christmas and so on. I decided to sort them for donations, to giveaway to her cousins in the Philippines and also really, some to throw. It is not easy when she has so many toys but she is not even playing all of them. Some books she do not really pay attention. Learning from day to day basis as a parent lead us to so many improvements. We are not perfect, we can never be. The…

    How to Choose An Excellent Long-distance Cargo Freight Service

    Since I moved here in Belgium, it is part of all Filipino abroad to share the experience of being abroad to our loved ones by simply sending them, groceries, chocolates, clothes and little that they truly appreciate. I have tried two so far the one is far from here. They are coming from Germany. Then, I do not have personal contact with their people. It made me try to find one reliable that is available sooner.

    How to Start an Effective Skincare Routine

    I am a total fan of makeup and now I am trying to balance when I have to really be wearing makeup. Skincare is just somewhere out there and mostly, as you are tired you do not wish to do anything at the end of the day. I began my journey of discovery from samples! Yes, samples from people, pharmacy and then I finally found my match!I love citrus on my skin, I love the cold winter closing my pores and it gives me a soothing feeling that my faces are clear to the extent that I don’t need any…

    Overcoming Emotional Anxiety After Aggression

    Years ago when I used to live in the Philippines. I am always paying attention outside with all sorts of negative energy, including pickpockets and harassment. This is very odd for me in my adult life to experience this here in Europe. I am in total awe how bad people with bad business are everywhere nowadays. Even on daylight, they exist, they are not afraid to engage their dark practices. Ah! To cut my intro short, yes! I got mugged by four men nearby work during my precious lunch break. Walking on the street that I am totally at ease…

    Toddler Eye Check-Up: Why Is It Necessary?

I noticed children with eye issues, early glasses at the age of 2 OR 3, this actually good because it only tells they are being checked. We knew this day would come not because my daughter is having so much screentime it is only because we knew I can be an influence to her eye condition as sometimes, or oh mostly eyesight condition can be hereditary. Then we also noticed Laia blinking her eyes, beginning September 2018. Asking the paediatrician what to do as he saw…
