Is Your Best Friend Getting Married? Here Is Everything You Need To Know

If you grew up with one best friend, you might find that you constantly compare yourself to them. I know I do. It is tricky to see your lives as two separate pathways. You are not one person, nor should you try to be. Your life will take different twists and turns. That is normal. You don't have to worry about it. Problems arise, though when you start to reach milestones at different points. For example, when your bestie announces her engagement, you might find it difficult. Here is everything you need to know.

Don't make things all about you

This point might be tricky, but you need to understand it. This wedding is not about you. You might start to internalize things and worry why you ready for marriage yet. Don't do it. People move through life at different paces, and that is fine. You should chill out a little and relax. Let your friend have her moment - yours will come before you know it. I am sure that she will support you when you decide to wed.

Avoid comparing your lives

Sometimes, it is easy to compare your life to that of your friend. Jealousy is not a health emotion, though, and so you need to cut it out. Rather than thinking about what your best friend has, think about what you have. Don't worry about her. She is on a different path to you. You have a chance to be there for her. Take it! You don't want to look back on this time and wonder why you messed things up. Instead, you need to look back on it with great joy.

Try to support her in any way she needs

Remember, this woman is your best friend in the world. Weddings are difficult. You should help her with anything she needs. If, for example, your friend tells you that she needs you to help her choose wedding invitations you need to rise to the occasion. Show her that you care about her. If you can help make the planning process easier than it would otherwise be, you will give her the best gift of all. Friendship is a two-way street. When you stop caring - she will too.

Write down your feelings

You probably have loads of feelings, some good and some bad, about your friend's wedding. Write them down. I have always found that expressing myself on paper is the best way to figure out my head. Sometimes, you need to take a little time to think about what you want in life. I find writing to be therapeutic, and I think that you will too. Remember, there is nothing wrong with having negative emotions. It is how you deal with those emotions that matters. Think about what you want to say and put it in a letter to yourself. Later, you can go back and read the letter and see whether you feel the same way.

Try to arrange an evening for the two of you

Before the big day, you want to squeeze in some quality time with your bestie. She will be super busy planning her wedding and stuff, so you need to ask her when she has some time to spare. You should plan a lovely evening in with your friend so that you can catch up. Sometimes, people let their differences come between them. Instead, you need to remember why become friends. If your friendship is worth it, nothing should come between you guys.

Remember, life is a funny thing. You can't control when things happen for you, and you shouldn't try. Instead, just take it as it comes.

Rocking The Bob

The title is what my twinzy of Sweetmemoirs  commented on my Instagram post showing off my new hairdo ahahahaha....

What made me decide to have my hair cut oh so short?

1. The hubby is away and I could do as I please with regards to my look LOL.
2. I love it that I didn't have to undergo another hair re-bond.
3. I could save up on shampoo and conditioner!
4. Preparing for work is easy as washing my hair and generously applying gel and combing into place and presto I am all set to face the day and enjoy 

How to Keep Your Kids Safe When You Can't Be There

The one thing parents want more than anything else is for their kids to be happy and safe. Keeping kids safe is so important these days, as we all know the things that can happen if we aren’t careful. Use this information to keep your kids safe even when you can’t be there:

Speak With Them About Danger

Make sure you talk to your kids about dangers, and ensure that they understand. Speaking to them about stranger danger would be a start. Make sure they know that they should never leave with anybody they don’t know unless having first been instructed by you. Let them know tricks people might use, like bringing puppies and sweets or saying they know you. A study was recently conducted to show just how many children do what their parents say - and shockingly it didn’t take long for many of them to walk off with a stranger. You can’t stress enough how important it is not to do this!

Send Them to a Self Defence Class

Sending your kids to a self defence class is a very beneficial way of keeping them fit, health and protected. Hopefully they will learn some techniques that will come in handy if they ever need them. Why not do it with them to have fun together?

Hire a Nanny

You may need a regular babysitter for your kids, so it could be beneficial to hire a nanny. Always vet your nannies properly. Make sure you go through a company that deals with nannies to ensure that this is legitimate and your kids will come to no harm. Ideally, you and your children should like the nanny! Feel free to drop in at unexpected times occasionally just to check up.


OOTD With The Kiddo

The best things to wear when I go out on a date with mah boys:

  • Polo Shirt
  • Jeans
  • Flats

and lotsa guts to survive their endless teasing about my selfies LOL

On Him: Garfield
On Her: Lacoste
special thanks to you know who you are for the blings

Fun Methods to Get Back to Nature at Home

Anyone who loves being outside can feel a little trapped when they're inside. If you love nature, you can feel cut off from it when you have to be at home. Even if you love spending time with your family or you know you need to get your chores done, it doesn't mean you wouldn't rather be in the great outdoors. You can try to get back to nature at home by making some changes to your decor and interior design. By adding some more natural elements, you can make your house feel more connected with nature instead of cut off from it. Try some of these techniques to create a home that's in touch with mother nature.

Blur the Threshold

Many people have an outside space around their homes, whether it's a porch, a backyard or even just a driveway. But it can feel like you've cut yourself off from that space as soon as you shut the door and lock yourself inside. There are lots of ways you can try to make those two spaces of indoors and outdoors feel less separate. One way to do it is with glass walls or doors looking outside so that even on cold and wet days you can maintain a connection with nature. You can also have a room such as a conservatory or even a swimming pool that flows from the inside of the house to the outside. Another option is taking the indoors into your backyard by building an outdoor living space.

Sunday Lunch at Gerry's Restaurant and Bar

We're in Baguio now and enjoying the cool summer breeze the place offers. We first visited Mine's View Park and soaked in the beauty of clouds and mountains.

There was a family debate as to where we will eat. The hubby and the first-born won because my male version and I had opposing choices.

I wanted pasta and pizza, the male version wanted chicken. So, the first-born and the hubby got us into a carnivorous indulgence.

Gerry's it was!


Pork chop

Gerry's Vegetable Rice

The boys had a great time! As always though I did not have the privilege of taking photos of my camera shy men, sigh.

Until next foodie time with the fambam!

Why You Should Make Comfort a Priority in Your Home

Far too many people place more importance on style than on comfort nowadays. In my opinion though, that shouldn’t be the case. Style without comfort is like a sandwich without a filling or a car without a steering wheel! It’s just not right. I say it’s time we made comfort fashionable again!

Here are a few reasons why you should make comfort your new priority around the home, so get reading.
