Tips on Interior Decoration

My personal tips as an ordinary homemaker - I have got no formal schooling on design to share with you but these are based on my design instinct.

As the title suggests, remove clutter.  The things that are of no use anymore keeps your space disorganized when they hang around.  It is made first on my list to lessen the burden of adding them on your workload while decorating.

Broken appliances:
 -have it repaired or sell to a junk shop. If can not be fixed, nor brought to a junk shop right away, keep in a storage room (where all your unneeded stuff are kept). 

Before throwing things:
 - check if it still can be used like toys of grown-up children; can be donated to beggars on the street or in daycare houses. Wash it first and perfume it.
 - unused or old clothes can be re-cycled for a bag, or be donated, again wash them first so it will not smell hidden in the "caves".
 - since, surplus e-shops/websites are now available, sell the items you donot like anymore.

Put everything in place. There must be a rack/plastic basket or drawer for every little thing so as not to find it lurking on top of the tv, ref or lounging on table or chair.  Shoe rack is advisable. Laundry hamper too.  There must also be a an open rod-standing hanger for nice-clothes for laundry.  The hamper can sometimes be a prey to rodents that might chew on our favorite clothes-the clothes inside must be folded.  It is an eye-sore to see a mountain-like dump of laundry.

Have a Color Scheme

Color coordination matters.  My style is for example, the flower on my vase is orange, I put an orange accent on some part of the house to connect that side to the whole block. A figurine or a table cloth will give the needed connection.

For me, good curtains does not clash with your wall paint. It matches the  furniture perfectly and most important of  all in choosing curtains is the function - if the area where you will put it, needs a sun blocker in the noon, thick and heavy curtains would be great.

How to Find Out a Scam Website Company

These are just few tips I learned while looking for part-time earning opportunities:

Tip #1

The site does not have a LOCK icon/image on the left-side corner of the URL address.  I learned that the sites that lack the said "lock image" is unverified by Google because they have not provided a location or address.

Tip #2
The site asks you to pay before you can start working.

Tip #3
The site is not using actual photos in their office or workplace.

Tip #4
Excessive pictures of  "money" enticing you.

Wedding Checklist & Step by Step Guide

These are the things an engaged couple must consider and prepare for a stress-free wedding day: 

A. Prepare for the things you will need one by one every pay day. 
If you are going to compute the receipts of these little things you will see it will cost you a LOT! 

a. Bride’s/grooms’ shoes/ bride’s purse/handker attire chief/casual
You might find this ridiculous but a signature shoes or lady’s purse might cost you your whole salary for a month especially, clothes to change-on when you are at the wedding reception. Some choose not to take-off the wedding attires but there are still others who feel comfortable changing, it depends on your personal preference. Handkerchief is a must! You might cry and got nothing to wipe on…just ask your groom to bring one for you and for him in his pocket you may return it afterwards, you will not want a hanky to hold while taking pictures!!! 

b. Bride’s accessories (head dress, gloves (optional), stockings, changing robe) 
You will need the robe while doing the make-up. A pair of necklace and earrings will do. Pearls always do the magic, just a suggestion.

c. Wedding Mementos/souvenirs 
 Some prefer to buy materials and make the souvenirs themselves for a matter of sentimental value, a personal touch. Others, the maid of honor shoulder the expenses and the acquisition of the souvenirs with of course the opinion of the bride. It should look special and appealing. 

d. Bridal Car 
If you do not own wheels, try to borrow from a friend or if your budget fits, look for a rent-a-car ahead of time. A wise client would not settle on the first shop, will always compare prices and services provided as well as time limitations and the like. 

e. Gowns and suits (the secondary sponsors) 
Some just buy the cloth to keep the motif and let the participants bring it to a dress shop on their own expense depends on your understanding (could be of any design or as agreed by the secondary sponsors/bride’s maids themselves). Others will rent on one shop so the design and color match, the bill as agreed; maybe shouldered by the couple. In the Filipino tradition, the Godparents (ninongs and ninangs) mind themselves whatever they wanted to wear as long as it is not against the church’s policies. 

Getting the Older Child Ready for the New Baby

Diaper stocks? Delayed breastmilk? Hospital bills?  Are these all the problems we need to face on birthing our second child?  Well, my dear friends - we are forgetting about our first born's feelings and confusions.  

On the firsts months of pregnancy, from then, we must start preparing our first born to the arrival of a sibling.  Communication, more bonding time and getting her involved in the preparation for the baby's arrival will give her a positive idea of  becoming an older sister or brother.
