Have you heard them say spring is the season of new beginnings? Most probably because it is the season when fresh buds bloom, animals awaken, and farmers plant their seeds. It is also the season that the temperature slowly rises, thus we need to be extra attentive to our body and skin’s needs.
Good thing there are skin care products that are appropriate for any time of the year. Such is Timeless Skin Care. There is a skin serum for every season, as well as a microneedle roller to recreate the spa experience at home. In the winter, you should choose the skin serums with hyaluronic acid for maximum moisturizing effect.

About 12 years ago, I always travel from the office to the small house with an insulated bag. It was full of breastmilk and ice inside. That time, I worked for more than eight hours a day in Ortigas Center. I just gave birth to my third, thus I made sure to bring breastmilk for him every day. This mother never missed pumping milk whenever she felt her breast getting heavy. I remember I could express four to six ml of milk at least three to four times a day. My officemates would often joke to borrow my expressed milk inside the freezer when we run out of creamer or milk for their coffee.
During those times, we didn’t have a breastfeeding station at the office. I stayed in the conference room whenever I pump milk. Most friends and co-workers then would refer the conference room as the nursing station.
Love who you are, embrace who you are. Love yourself. When you love yourself, people can kind of pick up on that: they can see confidence, they can see self-esteem, and naturally, people gravitate towards you. – Lilly Singh
Do you love yourself? Loving oneself isn’t vanity. It is taking care of oneself. It is making one’s life better. To love oneself means committing to the career he wants to see himself. It means spending his money to what it’s worth. He is in a relationship he has faith with and wishes to last long.
Perhaps it is time to reevaluate things and check if you find the time and exert effort to love yourself. We’ve got here a few tips to show that you are loving yourself.
Children should spend no more than one to two hours on screens, according to recommendations provided by the AAP. Unfortunately, children are increasingly dependent on mobiles, tablets and TV screens for their entertainment, learning, and sense of connection. This can be a real source of conflict within families. Both children and parents themselves seek a solution that works for the family. Imposing limits and sanctions is a common approach to the problem, but what if there is a more creative option?
Given that the rise in screen time correlates with a decrease in outdoor playtime, what if families create an outdoor space that offers something for everyone? If the garden provides something of interest to each member of the family from young to old, perhaps it could become a hub for connection? Such is a place to step away from screens and enjoy each other’s company. Let’s consider what an ideal family garden space might offer.

Nutritionists, doctors, and most parents attest that breakfast is a critical meal for the day. This is because it influences how one performs physically and mentally throughout the day. Thus, in our household, I always make sure that my boys are well fed before leaving the house. With the demands at school and at work, my family needs the energy and nutrients to keep them going.
There are still times that I would miss the alarm clock and rush to prepare everything with the little time left for me. But most of the time, I may say I am able to survive and provide the needed nutrients my family needs. Allow me to share with you how I am able to manage morning madness.
Our Little Man will turn three this August. Though I love it that he still breastfeeds, I believe it is prudent to introduce him to milk formula, too. Because although breast milk is the best nutritional choice for children, in some cases, breastfeeding may not be possible.
It has always been my toddler’s health that I am after. I want him to remain healthy and well fed. I always believe that milk is important because, for one, it is rich in calcium and phosphorus. These two are crucial to my boy’s bone and tooth development. Likewise, drinking milk is a great way to stay hydrated. With the many physical activities my young man does, he needs to rehydrate after his strenuous workouts. To add, milk contains vitamins and minerals to keep my guy active, healthy, and strong. Milk also provides protein which helps in my boy’s body repair and growth.
Thus, imagine my long ordeal in looking for the best milk for my toddler. You see, food processed with high heat results for the natural structure of proteins to be damaged and destroyed. The same goes for milk formula. Once proteins are damaged, they may not be easily absorbed and this may cause the child to suffer from protein indigestion. To some, they get stomach discomfort.
I was disappointed last week. Or too concerned that I was most of the time too quiet. But there’s something about being too frustrated that pushed me to make some home improvement.

I painted our living room walls white. I changed our door’s and stair’s handrails’ color to Ashton gray. This mother also sprayed paint our small gate to Ashton gray.
The heaviness I felt inside was still there that I thrashed the boys’ old socks and underwear. I also donated half of my clothes and the bags I no longer use.
Did you know that the origin of the festival of cupids is actually dark and even bloody? History says that the Romans executed two Christian priests by the name of Valentine on February 14. This happened though, in different years in the third century A.D. The martyrdom of the two priests was honored by the Catholic Church with the celebration of St. Valentine’s Day.
February 14 was associated with love and fertility because, again, according to history, between February 13-15, the Romans celebrated the feast of Lupercalia wherein men sacrifice a goat and a dog then whip women with the hides of the animals they just slayed. The Roman men were drunk and naked as women line up to be hit. This practice was believed to make the women fertile. There was also a matchmaking lottery after the hitting.
