 Keeping Up With The Kids This Winter Break

Children are pretty much life’s biggest adventure and it isn’t until you are a parent yourself that you realise that there is a lot more to raising a family than just ensuring they’re fed and warm. A big part of raising children is keeping them entertained, and as a parent, this job falls to you most of the time. When the school vacation times approach, it can be stressful. Without the distraction of school and homework, children are easily bored – no matter their age.
Teenagers that prefer to spend their time holed up in the privacy of their bedrooms are just as hard to keep entertained as the three-year-old that wants to make Lego towers in the den. Winter break is probably the hardest of the school vacation breaks, as unless you live somewhere that gets a decent snowfall, you can find yourself truly stuck for ideas. Cabin fever is very real during the school vacation, but the beauty of the winter break is the sheer level of indoor activities that can be done with a festive theme. Most parents appreciate the necessity of screen time while the kids are at home, and when you have teenagers upstairs using one TV set and smaller children downstairs with another TV set, plus tablets and smartphones on the go, you need to ensure you have the right internet speed to keep up. So, before you get started with any winter activities, make sure that you’ve updated your service with https://www.optimum.com/. Not every day will be sponsored by screen time, of course, but when the weather is harsh outside and there is housework to be done it can be an absolute blessing. Keeping the kids occupied without the use of electronics, in a day where most toys are electronic, and tablets are the go-to entertainment system, isn’t easy. Don’t worry, though, we’ve got some great ways to keep the kids occupied and learning all at the same time.

5 Things That Are Stopping You From Sleeping Tonight

There is nothing worse than feeling so incredibly tired that you can’t focus on anything. Everything takes three times as long to do, and you don’t seem to be able to figure out the simplest of problems in your head. Good quality sleep isn’t easy to accomplish, though. There are plenty of reasons why your time in bed isn’t leaving you refreshed, focused and energized. Here are just 5 of the biggest culprits disrupting your slumber:

Brain Strain

Too much going on in your day can leave you still buzzing at bedtime. Sleep is perfect for problem-solving, so try to let everything go. Leave it to your brain to figure everything out while your body is getting some rest. Switch off, and find a way to let your eyes feel heavy. Deep breaths that gradually elongate can help. Count the seconds for each inhalation and exhalation. This gives your mind something else to focus on too.


Christmas Gifts For Older Family Members



Ensuring we find the right Christmas gifts is a key part of the season for most of us. We want to be able to find the exact right gift that is going to make the recipient smile from ear to ear; something that is truly going to enrich their lives.

Most of us parents know what to buy for our kids, and have a good idea about what our spouse and friends might like-- but what we buy our parents or other older relatives is a lot more difficult.

If you’re struggling for gifts for your older family members this Christmas, then here are a few ideas you might want to consider…

There are so many baby products out there that it can be difficult to choose which one is the right one you both your child and you. Parents need to take into account aspects such as pricing, nutrition, safety and everything in between. A lot of the time, parents will share their secrets with each other, often going off one another’s recommendations, but usually what works for some doesn’t work for everyone else.

When considering your child’s needs you must remember that there are a lot of different products out there, it just takes a little bit of digging to find the right one. Here are some tips on finding the perfect products for not only your child but you, as well.

Have a Happy Holidays with Svelt’i

It is indeed the most wonderful time of the year. From frenzied last-minute shopping sprees to multiple Christmas parties, we really can’t deny that the holidays are just around the corner. But, despite all the infectious merriment that the holidays bring, we also cannot deny the fact that all the stress the holiday season brings can absolutely take a toll on your skin with all the late-night partying, non-stop eating, and mad traffic we all have to deal with.


So how do we deal with these skin SOS and still be as glowing and youthful during the holidays?

S.W.A.P. (Sensible Ways At Preserving) Our Lives

Image result for swap

We spend a lot of time looking for a different version of something that will benefit us and one way or another, such as finding a cheaper version of the same product, or a healthier version, such as diet soda. But, instead of looking for the cheaper option, or going for the diet version of something that we all think will benefit us (when in actual fact it only helps us in the short term), we need to think about making more effective swaps in our lives. So, what are the most effective decisions in life we can make for healthier and happier versions of us?

Effective Vice Swaps
We've all got a little something that's a big vice for us, whether it is sugary treats, or cigarettes, the trick is not to cut them completely out of our lives, but rather, phase them out. That means gradually cutting down on cigarettes, or eating that one less chocolate bar per day, until the health benefits you feel are so great that you prefer living this way. That is the trick to escaping any habit. Of course, for many, habits are addictions. And cigarettes are one of those major ones in life, and to make the experience much less unpleasant, there are swaps that people are making now like vapes or e-cigarettes. You can shop Vaporescence products or any e-cigarettes providers now and get a decent amount of advice and support on picking effective products to help you kick your habit. People who go on to e-cigarettes have generally found that they have cut down gradually on these also.

Top Tips On Getting Through Winter For The Hypochondriac In You

When you have children winter can be a time of year when bugs and colds spread like wildfire. With the upcoming festivities and back to school in January, you want to avoid the entire house being wiped out with the newest strain of flu.  Here are some tips that can help you and your family to stay as healthy as possible this winter season.

Star Chart For Young Children
Even if you are able to have a doctor on call, it’s smart to take as many precautions as possible to ensure your children don’t pick up anything too nasty. Yes, it builds their immune system, but may cause you to miss time from work at a high traffic time like Christmas. Having a star chart for practising good habits like washing their hands before eating, catching any sneezes in a tissue, thoroughly washing their hands with soap after using the toilet and covering their mouths when they cough can stop germs from spreading. Carrying anti-bac wipes and hand sanitizer while out and about - especially when travelling on public transport - can also kill any nasties your children have picked up from the handrails or the very loved stop button. Making these activities fun and interesting can ensure they are made habit rather than forgotten.

Natural Care Products for New Mums

After giving birth, taking care of yourself and your body is of the utmost importance. Not only will proper self-care speed up your recovery, but it will also ensure the safety and health of your baby. If you decide to breastfeed your little one, you need to be mindful of the products you use because they can affect your baby, as well. From your diet to the hygiene products you use, you need to make sure to get rid of everything that might expose you and your child to chemicals and toxins. Therefore, it’s advisable that you switch to natural hygiene products to ensure your and your baby’s well-being.

Be fragrance-free


Babies’ sense of smell is quite sensitive, which is why you need to avoid products with strong fragrances. While gentle aromas may not be unpleasant to your baby, they may contain chemical substances that can cause numerous health problems, ranging from skin irritation to serious damage to your and your baby’s immune systems. Even if you choose products with natural scents, you can never be sure that they are completely free of chemicals. Therefore, choosing fragrance-free products is the safest option for a breastfeeding mom. In addition, products with strong scents can hinder your breastfeeding relationship with your baby. By switching to fragrance-free products, you will allow your baby to sense your natural scent that they will simply adore.

How to Encourage Kids to Adopt a Daily Skincare Routine  

After a busy day preparing meals, getting the kids to school, and working hard in an office or at home, a skincare routine can sometimes be the last thing we feel like taking part in. Cleansing, toning, moisturising, takes at least five minutes, yet most of us probably notice a major difference when we take the time to apply our favorite products regularly. What would you say if someone told you that skincare should actually begin in childhood? There are many reasons why keeping the largest organ in our body in optimal condition, is so much more than an adult concern.

Creative Ways To Include A Junior Bridesmaid in Your Wedding

Image Credit



Today’s bride wants her wedding to be an expression of love and life. Even the most formal weddings today are a bit softer. They are chic and understated and the ceremony embraces the honored guests that attend. The weddings often include all members of the blended family.

This is the reason for the popularity of the junior bridesmaid.  If a young lady is too old to be a flower girl and too young to be a bridesmaid, she is perfect for the role of junior bridesmaid. But, if you include her in the bridal party, you must include her in the process as well.

She can be a part of many of the wedding preparations and included in preparations as long as they are age appropriate. This would be things like shopping with the bride, helping select the dresses, and going to the beauty parlor.

Junior bridesmaid dress
The junior bridesmaid dress can mimic the bridesmaid dress or she can wear a junior brides dress. You might add straps if the primary bridesmaids are going strapless, or shorten the dress to a tea length, but it should be very close to the same dress. You can order a sample dress for a small deposit and try it on her at home. Bridal professional Azazie offers this service.

Learning With Education App



The way our modern day kids learn is so different from how we learn when we were kids. Today’s kids are surrounded by high technology devices and learning methods have changed so much from the traditional ways of learning. Those days, we need to memorize so many things, e.g. timetables for mathematics. Those days, we were not allowed to bring our calculators into the exam hall but now kids are using e-calculators and they are allowed to take them into their classes.

We are now living in a world surrounded with electronic devices and are depending more on online homework apps to lighten their homework load. Our kids are overloaded with homework and they hardly have time for recreational activities. Whether it is for outdoor or indoor activities, our kids need time to relax and have some fun instead of spending hours of learning in school and hours trying to finish their homework after school. With the homework apps, students are able to have more play time.
For those who are using iPhone or iPad, you can download one of the best iTunes education apps onto your mobile device. Some of the education apps like the Great Courses Plus are only available on the App Store. This education app enables student to have access to over 8,000 college level videos and lectures taught by experts or professors. With this app, you can stream the videos to your iOS devices, or download the videos and lectures to watch them offline at a more convenient time.
