New Year, New Hope

Before the year ends. Let us reminisce the good and bad things that happen to us this year.

2011 was a busy year for me. After giving birth, i spend my days thinking what will happen to me and to my new baby. Although there were happy thoughts, problems and worries, money problems, emotional problems did not escape me.

But I am very grateful because the Lord gave me the strength to cope up with the busy demands of my life.  Days maybe gloomy but having my family besides me helps me to be happy and more stronger.

New year 2012

As another year enfolds us, I have high hopes that life will be better and we will be having a wonderful days free of sickness, less worries and more happiness.

Something to Live By

There maybe times I could not say thank you but it does not mean that I am not grateful for all the things you have done.  For all the support and understanding you have given on this stubborn girl, i thank you for that.

For all the love you have given to our family and for listening to my whims and desperation. For giving me positive thoughts and trying to calm me when I have my unreasonable tantrums.  Even though you have your own way , I am very grateful for that.  I may not always say thank you but it does not mean that I am not grateful and I do hope in some other way, you can feel that I am happy for having you and the kids around me.

Light and more lights

Thinking of a renovating your house?  I also wonder when will be the chance to renovate our home.  I would like to begin with the lighting, i think wall sconces are a great deal to make a dull room look more nicer.   Having a well lighted room can make a big difference to it’s whole ambiance.

I definitely admire those houses with beautiful lighting, outdoor wall sconces are also a nice addition to your garden or lanai or if you just wanted to have an extra light on your doorway.  Having the right lights on your different rooms are needed, identify the needs and the purpose of the certain room before you choose the light that you will place.

A quoizel lighting can add a touch of elegance in your house.  It’s designs are timeless and provoking and will surely adorn any type of rooms.  Functionality wise, these kinds of lights are great addition to any room.  There are wide choices, for your bathroom, ceiling lights, headlights, desks lamps, hanging lights and pendant lighting, these are just among the kinds you can choose from.

I have always favored this kind of lighting and I remember that we used to have this in our dining room and I wish we can buy this kind of lights on our new house now.

Broken Sofa

No it’s not the whole sofa that was broken but the casters are.  That’s why as much as early as this we need to find a replacement before anything worse happen.

Sofa is one of the most used furniture in your house, it’s where you build wonderful memories as the family comes together to sit and talked about how their day has passed.  There are many kinds of sofas but we wanted something that can easily move anywhere that’s why we chose the one with casters. Before buying your own sofa, make sure to check some good qualities especially it’s durability and affordability.

Pendant Lights

Pendant lights are best for homes who wants to have a minimal effects but with a very elegant and stylish style.  A dining area with more pendant lighting is a great place to enjoy a sumptuous dinner.   A room with mini pendant lights hanging at the sides are a perfect room to accommodate  guests and visitors.  Such ambiance can create a long lasting effect for everyone and surely your house will be the center of attention among your friends.

Finding them in the net makes me purchase one for our own house,  lightwave indeed sells beautiful lighting that can create a once boring room to a beautiful haven.

Two weeks ago, we went to a wedding of my husband  niece and the art deco pendant lighting in the reception are quite exquisite and makes the whole room shines.  I can’t help myself to look at the beautiful lights hanging above me and even got the chance to have a picture of them.

This pendant lights can usually be seen in receptions to make a room more brighter and beautiful but i guess it would be good too if those are placed in your own house,  don’t you think?

Light up my life

Since we have acquired our own house last year, we tried to buy some new appliances for the house. Those little things that we really needed considering the monthly payment for pagibig and the developer is still the main priority in our budget.

So, thinking of owning a sconces would be great specially this beautiful mini pendant lighting which i think will definitely fit our dining area.

There are many things to be considered when buying a good light bulb and it does not mean that it just can beautify your home but one must also remember that it must have the quality to make your house vibrant living space for you and for your love one.

Different  flush mount ceiling lighting is one of the example that can help your dining area illuminate.  Different lights are needed for different part of your house because they need different levels of brightness and always remember it does not need to be expensive to make your house beautiful.

Laminated Floors

Hubby and I are discussing a while ago on what we should put on our floors, should we laminate floor or we can  choose tiles for it.  We were looking for some company that offers quality but cheap laminate flooring but i guess we don’t have it here in our place compared to the services in other countries.

Laminated floors are easy to clean, durable and looks luxurious yet affordable.  So, no wonder why many big houses uses this kind of flooring because it was truly worth it.

Moving Out

There are times that one must need to change places of residences especially if your line of work is being a sales man.  It’s very natural for salesman to move into different cities or area to represent their company afterall it is a job of the salesman to provide a wider view of your company’s product. There are events that you need your family to move in with you and what better way to help you in this time  is someone that knows what your needs,  Moving Company helps many families to move out from their current location to another places without any hesitation nor thinking of possible problems.

Moving out to different places is a strenuous activity not just for you but for the whole family as well.  Thinking how you will packed those inside your home can give you bigger stress than you can imagine.  First thing you need to consider in moving out is the important things you need to bring because you might be bringing on a lots of clutter from your previous houses.  Make sure that you only bring what you needed so you can save a lot of money on your move too and whatever happens make sure that you leave your future address to your previous neighbor so when someone look for you, they can at least contact you but of course not to those you don’t want to see.

Doom of the Broom – A Tale of Pain and Passion

Broom is a historic thing.  It has a long history and was associated with witches or witchcraft.   I always love watching movies and television shows with witches and magic.  It’s so magical to see the witches flying in the air using their broom sticks. It was a sight i always created in my mind and eventually weave in my dreams.   But in real life, I have a little desire on using them, it is the fact that i hate sweeping because using them makes me cough and have headaches  due to the dust. I get bored doing this kind of thing and most of the time, i sing so I can forget my boredom.

I totally hate sweeping.  It is still fresh in my memory when I was still a child, when I was asked by my grand mother to sweep our house and I accidentally stepped on the broom that I was using and  slipped and fell on my buttocks that eventually  gave me painful legs and arms for days.  I told myself that I would not sweep again but that is a vow that was immediately broken considering that sweeping is one of my household task that my grandmother assigned to me.

That’s why I am so thankful that vacuum cleaner was built.  Although the affordability is far from using an ordinary broom but the benefits that a vacuum cleaner will give you is more than twice and it can save you time and energy and of course a more thorough cleanliness rather than your historic broom.   I believe that it is now time to forget our old tradition of sweeping using the broom. It is time to say, bye bye to broom and hello to a new and powerful tool like the vacuum cleaner.

If I have a vacuum cleaner.  I can sing with finer tune!

“I don’t need you
I don’t need you
I don’t need you
I don’t need you anymore

The love we had is forever ever gone
This time I know you can’t hurt me anymore
Ooh, all the chances that I gave
False promises you made
This time I’m sure I can make it on my own”

I Don’t Need You Anymore Lyricshere.

Doom of the Broom

Field Mowing

I used to dream of having a big garden or a fields of flowers or with lots of trees and green plants but i guess it’s all a dream considering that owning a large place like that would be impossible for me. I wonder if those who owned such large fields have their own mower service or they just let someone do the jobs for them.

I have a magazine before  about big houses. villas and  castles  and i  could not help myself to be amazed of their beautiful gardens and then imagine  if they are using zero turn lawn mowers to maintain those green lawns. It’s very beautiful and pleasing to one’s eyes.
