Nail Polish Haul

The boyfriend kept on complaining that he doesn't like the color of my nail polish everytime he saw my nails wearing green, purple, blue or any color that I feel wearing. And I always have the same lame reason for not wearing his favorite color, "I run out of red nail polish".

Few weeks ago, I decided to buy red nail polishes. He was happy when I showed it to him and said, now I don't have any reason not to wear his favorite color. However he knows I can be hard headed and I will use other colors if I want too.

Anyway, you will not see me wearing red nail polish 10 years ago. But now, I get to love too.

5 Simple Ways To Be The Perfect Wedding Guest

If you have a wedding or two to attend this summer, then the chances are you want to create the best impression when your pals are saying their ‘I do’s.’ Celebrating with your nearest and dearest as they choose to commit their lives to one another is a privilege, and it’s important that you understand nuptials etiquette. It doesn’t matter whether this is the first wedding you are ever attending or whether you are a dab hand at this wedding day stuff, take a look at these simple ways to be a stellar guest.

Don’t Be Tardy

There should only be one person on the big day making a fashionably late entrance, and it certainly isn’t you. The bride has every right to take her time and make her partner sweat just a little before she makes her grand entrance. On the other hand, you need to be firmly in your seat with time to spare. There’s nothing worse than a tardy guest fumbling for their seat and entering a venue all flustered slap bang in the middle of the exchanging of rings. It’s not a good look so don’t do it.

Never Wear White

The bride has a monopoly on the purest of colors. Wearing white and being the only person at the wedding to do so is a bride’s prerogative. Instead, think about wearing one of the many on trend formal dresses on the market. Crimsons and blues are classy and timeless, whereas the brighter and more bold geometric prints are suitable for a summer wedding. Make note of any dress code and shop for your attire accordingly.

RSVP Quickly

If you want to bag a good seat at the wedding breakfast, make sure that you RSVP as fast as possible. Don’t leave it until the last minute to confirm your attendance as this will only stress out the happy couple and could lead to you being sat at a table on the sidelines along with the other late responders.

Give a Gift

Don’t be arrogant and assume that your attendance itself is the greatest gift of all. The bride and groom will have a wish list or may have even requested funds for their honeymoon or donations to their favorite animal or children’s charity. Whatever their gift of choice, make sure you contribute in some way.

Watch Your Alcohol Consumption

While we like to joke about seeing our friends getting a little tipsy and embarrassing themselves on the dancefloor, ensure that the person drinking too much isn’t you. As a perfect wedding guest, you should be mingling, making exciting conversation, showing off your dance moves while sober and remembering the happy day. Find yourself with a sore head and nausea the morning after, and you may reel from not remembering the events of the night before. Save your embarrassment and ensure that you remain lucid for the big day.

Being the perfect wedding guest simply means using your common sense, parking your ego at the door and keeping the wishes of the happy couple at the forefront of your mind. Follow this advice, and you will always be the perfect wedding guest.

New Polo Shirt

I was surprised when the little big tot asked me to buy him a new clothes for their aquitance party coming Friday. As far as I remember he doesn't care if he is wearing an old decent clothes when attending a school party such as aquintance party. So I asked him why he wants a new clothes. He answered " we ask the Grade 7 student for a photo opp". I was speechless for few minutes. And I end up asking my son if he admire someone. I was relieve when he said none. Hahaha..

Well, hence he is not asking for new clothes in a regular basis I granted his request. I got him a Lee Polo Shirt. He specifically request for a plain polo shirt since most of his clothes are stripe.

I showed it to him last night. He was happy when he saw it.

3 Surefire Signs That Your Feline Loves You

If you are new to the world of cat ownership, then you may be worried by the tales of aloofness that your friends have been regaling you with. You wanted a pet to love and love you, to show you affection and to be your companion through life’s trials and tribulations. You selected a pet of the feline variety, but now you are concerned that you should have chosen man’s traditional best friend - the humble hound. Don’t worry, cats are just as affectionate and as loyal as their canine counterparts. The joy of owning a cat is that they also come with bags of attitude, feistiness, and independence. Take a look at these three surefire signs that show your feline loves you to bits.

The Purring

Cats purr when they are happy and content. If you ever find yourself chilling on your sofa only to find your moggy pal kneading your stomach drooling and purring, you can feel happy in the knowledge that your cat is at his or her most comfortable. Often cats will lift up their heads to expose their chin encouraging you to give them a massage or stroke. The most contented cats won’t simply sit on their owner’s lap, but they will writhe on their back next to their human friend and expose their belly. This is when your feline is at his or her most vulnerable, so they are demonstrating that they trust you implicitly.

Your Cat Turns Into A Limpet

It doesn’t matter where you are in the house or what you are doing within your four walls, your kitty will want to be doing it with you. They will attach themselves to your calf, rub their cheeks all over you and claim you for their own secreting their scent all over you. If you head to the toilet, they’ll be scratching on the door and wailing as if you’ve left them forever. If you are eating dinner at the kitchen table, your purr-fect pal may leap up next to your plate and circle your meal eagerly waiting for you to take your last bite. You can forget reading a book or surfing the web on your laptop; your feline friend will be nuzzling and headbutting you so hard that he or she won’t rest until you provide them with your undivided attention.

They Find The Most Ridiculous Spots In The House

You can tell your cat loves you and their forever home when they have a series of spots within the house where they can rest their constantly sleepy head. You may find them in the laundry basket, on top of a wardrobe or in the bathtub. These hilarious encounters may be charming, but you also need to ensure that your humble abode is as hazard free as possible so they can enjoy every inch of their dwelling. House Method's pet safety tips will enable you to pet-proof your home so your feline companion won’t have to encounter any dangers within your four walls. There’s nothing better than venturing downstairs in the morning and spying your moggy lolloping on the mantelpiece before leaping down for chin rubs and a play before breakfast.

Owning a cat isn’t simply taking a new lodger albeit furry and four-legged. A cat is a joy to be around, they will enrich your life and provide you with more love than you ever thought possible

Tips For Squatting Properly

Squats are one of the best exercises that you can perform. They not only work out your butt muscles, they also work out your legs and core. You can get a lot of benefits from adding squats into your exercise routine. There are many ways in which to perform a squat exercise. However, the most important thing to remember is to do them properly. If you do not, you could end up not getting the results you want or hurting yourself. If you need help with your form, there are many devices that can help you perform perfect squats each time such as the SmartSquat device found online at

Hip Hinge

A lot of people fail to do their squats properly. Not only will this lead to an ineffective squat, it can also put too much strain on your knees and other joints. Doing a proper squat takes a few things to make happen such as proper balance, hip flexibility and a hip hinge. To do this properly, make sure that you hinge your hips back to where your butt will move back and down during each squat. Doing this will help keep your knees from protruding past your toes.

Shoulder Back And Chest Out

Another tip to remember when trying to perform a good squat is that you need to keep your chest out and your shoulders pushed back. This is to ensure your spine is properly aligned while you are doing the exercise. When you keep these two things in mind, your back will keep its natural curve. This is the safest way to keep your back from getting injured. Rounding your shoulders and letting your chest sink in while you are performing squats will ultimately throw off your spinal alignment.
These are just a couple of the many things you can do while squatting. The key to a good squat lies in proper form and execution. There are different versions of squats and mixing up the different kinds will give you a great workout. Squatting will give your whole body many benefits.

Buying the Proper Casters

Many people are under the false impression that buying casters is a simple process. However, you will regret it if you take this task lightly. There are many types of casters on the market. You need to be sure that the ones you buy will be able to withstand the stress of the jobs you are using them for. You should never assume that all casters are made the same. That is simply not the case. Here are some helpful tips for choosing outstanding casters that will not let you down.

1. Talk to local retail stores to find out the brand of casters they are using for their shopping carts and hand trucks in their storeroom.
You will gain a great deal of insight into which casters are the best by talking to the people who work at retail stores. This is one of the most common places that casters are used on a daily basis. All shopping carts use caster wheels. You should talk to the manager of each store and find out the brand they use. Find out where they purchase their casters and how much they pay for them. This will give you a good idea of where you should begin your shopping for casters.

2. Be certain that your casters are strong enough to hold up the weight you require them to support.
Do you need to move some cargo that weighs a lot? If this is the case, you need to be absolutely certain that the casters you buy will be able to carry the weight that you will be placing on top of them. All casters have a weight limit. It should be listed on the box. Look at that before you buy anything. You might want to consider using heavy duty casters for loads that weigh a lot.

3. Are the casters covered by a warranty?
Never buy any casters that do not include warranty coverage. You might have casters that are not working the way they should. A warranty will allow you to get them fixed without having to spend any money in the process.

4 Single Mom Truths Worth Knowing

We don’t want to step out of line and talk on anyone’s behalf, but we’re pretty sure no girl signs up to be a single mom. It’s just not the sort of happily ever after any of us kind of hope and wish for. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t a total riot, blast, soul-warming and heart-stirring adventure that you love with all of your heart, taking a ridiculous amount of satisfaction from each of the tiny little wins you get to enjoy. It’s the adventure you will learn so much from. You’ll learn so much about yourself and you’ll learn so much about your kid.

However, there are some single mom truths we think we should point the light at, you know, as a sort of head’s up. Trust us: it’s much easier being able to manage when you know what sort of madness and chaos you’ll end up facing. Most of it is hard, but if you can find a way to see the funny side, please look for it because it is hilarious. Sitcom hilarious.

1. Bye-Bye Privacy

There is literally no point in keeping the bathroom door shut, whether you’re doing a one or a two because your kids don’t accept these kinds of boundaries. They’ll break the door down just to tell you about the Lego tower they built or what they want for Christmas (even though it’s the beginning of June).

2. Dating Is Not Fun

It should be, but for some reason, it isn’t. Instead, it feels like a bit of a chore and one you’d rather swap out for a date in front of Netflix. The reason for this is simple: after a day of taking the kids to school, clearing up the house, going to work, picking the kids up, doing dinner, the laundry and helping them with their homework, you’re not going to have it in you to pretend you’re not tired. You’d also have to pay for a babysitter, which is money better spent on a takeaway.

3. Accept Help, Always

It can be way too easy to slip into a system whereby you go, “I’m a single mom and I can do everything on my own.” Yes you are and yes you can, but don’t kill yourself doing it. If you can use help, do. If you’re having to move home, use someone like Bekins Moving Solution moving company or if you’re throwing a birthday party, ask your mom to help with the cake, or if you have a really great best guy friend, ask him if he will be a father figure-type person to your kids. It will make things a lot easier.

4. Your Bed Is Not Yours

We all sleep on a side of the bed. Even when we’re single, we tend to pick a side, which children look at as an invite to join you. This is nice every once in a while, but sometimes you just want to get your rubbish, brain-numbing TV binge watch on, something no child should be subjected to.
