Baby Nutrition Made Easy

Feeding a baby isn’t as simple as feeding a toddler or a child. Since they’re in very early stages of development, it’s critical that you feed your baby the right nutrients and minerals to see them grow healthily. There are many different things you need to know, and this guide will go through most of the basics on baby nutrition. You might think that you can just feed your child the baby food that you find on shelves at a supermarket and you’d be somewhat right, but your child deserves better.

Important Note About Diets

Let’s make this clear first; do not feed your baby based on a diet that you personally follow. If you are vegan, don’t feed your child purely vegan food to follow in your footsteps. There’s an article on usatoday.com that reports about a baby that was fed a strict vegan diet because of his parents. The doctors found the baby was severely malnourished and his calcium and iron levels were very low. The baby was eventually removed from the parents and he is now recovering from his ordeal.

We all have things we don't like to do but that need to be done. It could be doing the laundry or driving to the store. Sometimes, you can get someone else to do it, so long as you do something they don't like. But you often just have to suck it up and get it done, especially if it's a pressing matter. Still, having to suffer through something you don't like can be a drag. You would rather not have to do it at all, but since you do have to do it, you might as well try to make it less awful. So what can you do to help you deal with it?

Tips On Buying Your Kid Their First Tablet

With so many kids now owning a tablet, it won’t be long before your little one asks you for one.

Also, a tablet comes with a hefty price tag, so you don’t want to make the wrong decision with the device.

Modernizing your Interiors

Is it the year that you’re planning on revamping your interiors? If so, it can be tricky to know how to go about updating your home. Budget restrictions, time pressure, and even idea inspiration, can all hold us back. Take a look at some of these ideas for modernizing your interiors. They range from cheap and easy, to more expensive and time consuming...

Make Your Home A Heart Of Positive Energy

A house and a home are not the same things. While you live in a house, you feel safe and happy in your home. This has to do with creating a positive feeling under your roof, a feeling that keeps your mind at peace. Keeping ahead of your home maintenance and renovation works is an essential requirement to keep the house safe, but the positive energy comes from your own décor arrangements and how you choose to divide space. While it may sound a little simplistic, how you feel in your home will actually define how you feel in your skin and your life: Positivity is essential to your well-being and your happiness. Follow this guideline to make your house a happy home.

Life is all about image for some and for teenagers, it’s imperative to fit into the best your wallet can stretch to.

Don't Stress About Days Out With Your Kids

Let’s face it: all of us like to get out and about with the children. It can get quite claustrophobic when you stay indoors with your children a lot, the children can get bored, they could end up watching too much TV, the house gets messy, you have to clean up the mess and can’t supervise the children as much as you would like, and more importantly, staying indoors all day can quickly eat through your energy bills with the heating on, water being run and electric being used for long periods of time.

So, taking our children outdoors is an option which many moms choose over staying inside all day. Sure, there are times when we pretty much have to stay indoors either because of really bad weather, we are waiting for a delivery, we do not feel our usual self, or our children may have a mild illness and you do not want to make it worse by going outside. But, we all love to get outdoors with our kids.

Taking Baby Steps: Sage Advice For New Parents


Being a mom is something else. It’s unlike any feeling in the world. When your first baby comes along, it all changes everything, and I mean everything! While there are countless amounts of baby forums online, you don’t really know if everything you are feeling is the same as everyone else, after all, we’re all different. There are people that tell you how to do certain things, and strangers are quick to criticize if you are doing something “wrong” and doctors tell you that you shouldn’t be exercising during pregnancy, and then you should. It’s all such conflicting information that you can feel full to the brim before your baby is born. So I thought, for any parents to be, or new parents that are reading this blog (and if you are, then your baby must be asleep, in which case, congratulations), here’s some advice for the first few weeks.

Are Diamonds Really A Girl’s Best Friend?

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, or so we’d led to believe. When that quote first became popular, it was a different time - we’re talking over fifty years ago - the world was a completely different place. Women were purely homemakers and mothers who waited at home for their husbands - it was a different time, and the world was a totally different place. 

Despite the fact that the world has changed a lot in the past fifty years or so, us girls still love diamonds. For generations, those bright, glitzy, sparkling stones have captured our hearts, drawing us into a lifelong love affair. But what is it about diamonds that we love - what is it that makes them the perfect timeless accessory? Why do we lust over diamonds when there are so many other beautiful gemstones to choose from? 


Easy Ways For Exhausted Moms To Still Look Amazing

It’s a universal truth that being a mom is totally exhausting, and almost everything else pretty much has to take a back seat. Whether it’s teenagers or toddlers that take up your time, it can feel like we don’t even have time to brush our hair or wash our own clothes, never mind consider makeup. With so little sleep, it can be pretty difficult to pull off the no makeup look and still look stylish. But all is not lost - here are a few things even the busiest mothers can do to get that chic mom style.


The Secret’s Out: How To Become A Morning Person!

From the moment you become a mom, you also become an early riser. Babies and children don’t always sleep well, and even when they do, they always seem to get up early. So once you become a parent, for the most part, you can kiss goodbye to those lovely lay-ins, snuggled up in your comfy, cozy bed. Which means that it’s important to become a morning person - as learning to love getting up earlier will make those hectic school run mornings that little bit easier. 

The question is, of course, how can you go about doing that - learning to love early mornings? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered with my list of tips and ideas for learning to become more of a morning person.

For An Amazing Family Home, Build Don’t Buy!

If the time has come for a new home, then the chances are that you’re in the process of thinking about your options. Whether you’ve rented until now and are finally able to afford a home or your own or have a house of your own but have begun to outgrow it, it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you end up with a property that’s perfect for your family and is exactly, what you want (and need) it to be. 

With that in mind, perhaps it could be worth considering building your next home yourselves, rather than buying a ready-built property. This might sound like a lot of hard work and stress, and at times it can be, but there are a lot of reasons why building tops buying when it comes to bagging that perfect family home. Intrigued as to what makes building a better option? Then read on for everything that you need to know! 

5 Tips To Get Enough Daylight In Your Home

When we look at our home, we can always find something that’s wrong with it. We spend days and hours fixing up our home, but we can always find an aspect that’s just not right. And although many problems can be fixed, if our home is just too dark, that can be a big problem for many. When we first look at our home, it may have been something we simply overlook, maybe because it was a dark and dingy day. But something like having a bit more daylight in your home is really important. Sunshine is beneficial to our health because of the amount of vitamin D it provides, which is really good for fighting off illness but is now more important to our health than we realize because an adequate dose does a lot for our mood too. How can we get more sunshine into our home?

There are so many things to remember but quite often not enough pieces of advice for you to take through from birth to teenage years.

Say YES to MAY and Celebrate Love with Everyone

Valentine’s Day has always been a part of our annual celebrations, this is the time where we get all mushy and more affectionate. A customary idea of a Valentine’s celebration will include receiving flowers and chocolates and having fancy dinners, but for this year, step-up your game and make it different from before.

With May Sparkling Juice, there’s something to suit every mood and situation!


4 Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

1. For Couples. Rekindle the romance and plan for an adventure. Create a trail of clues and lead your date to your actual gift through a game like truth or dare. It’s not only exciting; it will also remind you of your relationship’s milestones. Toast to memorable fun times together and discover a rekindled love before the night ends.

2. For Singles. Who says Valentine’s Day isn’t for you? Gather your single friends and create a movie garden! Prepare a ham and cheese platter, pop open that bottle of May Sparkling Juice, and play that romantic movie you’ve always wanted to watch. It might be chilly outside but you have warm bodies beside you to make you feel that being single is definitely alright.

Create small stations like that of a Fair that your office mates can go to. Your Fair can have a marriage booth, a jail booth, a chocolate and candy corner, write-a-card corner, and a music booth. To keep things in control, organize a dry, no alcohol party – a perfect set-up for a non-alcoholic but pleasantly enjoyable beverage such as May Sparkling Juice! Activities depend on how strict your office’s policies are.

If for some reason you are celebrating this day solo, buy yourself a nice meal. Pour yourself a glass of ice cold May Sparkling Juice and treat yourself to a relaxing warm bath. The ecstatic feeling is just as wonderful!

5 Reasons Why Langnese Honey Is Germany’s No. 1 (Now in the Philippines!)

Last January, 2017, Fly Ace Corporation introduced another high-quality product that recently hit the stores nationwide: Germany’s no.1 Langnese Honey. A family-owned brand distributed in over 45 countries, Langnese Honey is primarily known for its purest and most versatile flavors.

Honey is considered one of nature’s sweetest gifts from nectar that’s collected by bees and naturally broken into simple sugar. With the constant fanning of the bees’ wings, evaporation takes place in the unique design of the honeycomb that produces the thick, syrupy liquid we now know as honey. Interestingly, the color and flavor of honey is an indicator of its type of flower nectar collected by bees, thus leaves consumers with more flavor options.


Here are five facts that make Langnese Honey a game changer that will reboot your appreciation for high-quality honey:

1. Highest quality and purity since 1927. 

Langnese Honey is a family-owned brand for nine decades; it’s also a reputable market leader with a seal of approval from Germany’s Honey Ordinance and European Standard Basic Principles that strictly requires the safest and unadulterated quality. Meaning, it should be raw, unfiltered, and residue-free, with a limit of between 16% - 21% water content only. With Langnese Honey, it doesn’t only surpass these requirements, its name is a seal of guarantee that nothing is added nor removed from it!

2. No short cuts and no compromise. 

Ever wondered what makes Langnese Honey truly satisfying? Its serious commitment to quality and purity puts a premium importance on selection and processing, market analysis, coupled with direct and long-standing relationship with the beekeepers in the countries of origin. Much more, it also boasts a plethora of certifications from International Featured Standards (IFS) Kosher, and Halal that are true marks of its reliable source.

3. Pollen-packed and certified safe.

Did you know that when a honey comes back negative for pollen test, it’s a sure sign of ultra-processing? That shouldn’t be the case, according to the makers of Langnese Honey Fürsten - Reform’s Export Manager Mark Baumgärtner, “Absence of pollens in the honey means there’s no way to determine whether the honey came from legitimate and safe sources, as verified as well by the German Honey Directive and World Health Organization. Langnese Honey mindfully takes into account the latest scientific findings using modern technology and unfiltered process that effectively determines the origin and type of honey.”

4. Chic and convenient.


Featuring a honey dispenser technology famously known as “Bee Easy”, this chic and convenient packaging is also guaranteed no drip and no stickiness in every serving. Available in 250 g and 500 g PET dispensers, it’s also well loved by kids who find fun and enjoyment with their food. What’s more, you can take delight as you please, as its five yummy flavors might be the best you’ve ever tasted.

5. Five decadent flavors for all types of fete and feasts.

Aside from Langnese Honey’s credible process and source, there’s none quite like its well-balanced, rich, and golden flavors that’s arguably highly nutritious! Considered a staple for its subtle and mildly sweet taste, Acacia is the ultimate breakfast companion that lends character to teas, cereals, and desserts. Golden Clear on the other hand, offers a sweet antidote to dips, salads, cocktails, and hot drinks, or to just about anything. Meanwhile, cooks and foodies can never go wrong with Black Forest that’s surely a luscious ingredient from the straightforward to the flashy recipes. While Wild Flower is pretty much suited for sweetening all types of food and beverage, it makes breads and pastries tastier and way healthier instead of refined sugar. Last but not the least, Lavender is also lovely for sweetening all types of beverages like tea and is a luscious spread on breads. 
Fly Ace Corporation is proud to welcome Langnese Honey in the Philippines, as we reinforce our commitment to bring the best of the world’s food and beverages to the Filipinos.” concludes Fly Ace Corporation President Jun Cochanco.
When it comes to honey, there’s a reason why Langnese has been around for decades and a consistent market leader all these years--its name is the ultimate representation of what a real and reliable honey should be. “

It makes it easier to shop, easier to find information, easier to start a business, and easier to share your thoughts with communities and blogs. But it can also be a bit lawless. You don’t want your children getting too exposed to the kind of things you would keep them away from in the real world. But you don’t have to cut them off from the digital world completely. Instead, you can do a little more to make sure they’re using the internet as safely and as responsibly as possible.

Kill the Mom Zombie! 3 Makeup Hacks for Looking Human


When you’re a Mom, looking good is so much harder than it was before you had children. You don’t have the same amount of time to spend getting ready, and instead are dedicating it to dressing little people; you probably don’t have the same amount of money to spend on the products that you used to love, knowing that there are better and more deserving things that your cash now needs to fund. Some mothers ditch the makeup altogether, as they don’t have the room for it in their change bags - again, instead of cash that can be used for other things, it’s space that can be used for something a bit more important. 

But stop right there! You are important too. You deserve to look good, you deserve to feel great. You don’t have to give your life up just because you are looking after another one. Keep your makeup bag compact and stick to the essentials, and you’ll already be so many steps ahead of those who don’t.

3 Tips To Enhance Your Natural Beauty

While many say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, there is also a sense of natural features that people need to remember. The beholder, the one who finds you beautiful, knows all your features, all your beauty spots, all your curves and your flats, all your chubby and skinny bits, all your too big or your too small self-criticism, and still sees beauty in you. And that is because everyone has a form of natural beauty, and there is no need to always distract from the elements that you hate in your appearance, because these may just be what makes your special charm.

How to Survive Motherhood?

When one becomes a mom, a lot of things will change. And, the amount of confidence that you can lose in what is arguably the most pivotal time of your life is nothing but upsetting. Clothes that you wore pre-pregnancy may not fit in any way at all, skin can change (both in terms of stretch marks appearing and general condition), your mood and temperament can be all over the place and all of this is happening while you’ve got to try and look after another human being - when all you want to do is try and look after yourself and get back to rights. It’s a tough time.


You’re not alone. Almost every other mother feels like this at some point, and those who don’t show it are hiding it well. Put a bit of time into yourself and you will be back to feeling like you in no time (not the old you, though - you’ll realize you’ve come a long way since her). 

Bring Home The Bacon By Restoring Old Furniture

Everybody can use a little extra cash from time to time, but where does this “little extra cash” come from?! There are many ways to make a bit of side money online, but these opportunities can be pretty elusive, and even when you find one you’re normally competing with many other online workers for the same job. Another option is to look for what we can make ourselves, and one thing we can all do is restore old furniture. It’s simple: we make old, make look like new, and then sell for a handsome profit. Sounds too good to be true? It really isn’t! Read on...

Clever Ideas For Engaging Your Kids in Music


I belong to a family of musicians, well except me I guess (haha). Both my parents can sing and play the guitar, my eldest brother can sing, play the bass, guitar and the keyboard, my other brother can sing, play the keyboard and the drums and my sister sings too, play the guitar and the keyboard as well. When I was a kid, I can't sing, but I learned eventually. However, I can't play any musical instrument, my family attempted to teach me play the guitar and the piano but I wasn't just that determined to learn before, which I really regret.

Tips On Celebrating Your Child's Birthday

Planning a birthday party for our children could be quite stressful because we want to make it a special moment for everyone involved, especially our children right? Family members, friends, and our child’s friends (and maybe even family if you know them) should all be invited to make it an occasion worthy of how brilliant and loved your child is. A lot of parents simply decide to hold the birthday party in their home, but this can be more stressful. From answering the door constantly to invitees, to the phone ringing with people wanting to wish your child happy birthday, to preparing the party food, to making sure everyone has a drink, to unwrapping the presents and taking photos of your child, all aspects of a party at home can mean you will not enjoy the occasion as much as you had hoped.


There is an answer to this, though. Hold the party somewhere else where any potential stress will be taken away from you and you can relax and enjoy the party completely. There will be lots of venues in your area which will be more than happy to cater for your needs. If you would like a bouncy castle and soft play area, contact indoor play centers, organized if you would like a day of fun and adventure then it may be worthwhile to contact an outdoor skate park or local nature reserves. If you would like it to be a calm and mature affair, contact restaurants in your area. It will be surprising how many venues cater for children’s parties. Hiring a venue will cost considerably more than holding a party at home, but it does mean all the work will be done for you.
