Find the Perfect Swing Set

Today, new parents are investing in a swing set to put in their backyard or elsewhere on their property. They have discovered the many benefits of having a swing set available at all times for their children to use. One of the benefits is that the children get plenty of fresh air as they swing with their siblings or friends. Check out some of the other benefits that are prompting parents to add a swing set to their property.

Swinging is a fun activity for kids, but what they don’t know is that it helps them develop their gross motor skills. They have to learn how to push their legs forward and pull them back in order to make the swing go higher. Also, they have to learn to grip the side chains as they are propelling the swing. This activity also helps with a child’s coordination and balance.

Parents appreciate that their children can participate in an energetic activity with friends in a safe environment. This is especially important with younger children. They are in an area where they away from streets, cars and other traffic. Parents and others who are interested in getting some swings can find swing set swings at SwingforSwingSet.com.

A final benefit of having a swing set at home is that parents are able to avoid having to use gas to drive children to a local playground. Busy parents can just send the kids out to play on the swing set and supervise them from there.

Native Shoes – Corrado and Miller

I shared My Favorite Summer Experience in my Travel/Fashion Blog for Nuffnang’s Native Shoes Blog Contest and I won a 2500php worth of GC. Some of my friends already know that I love to join online contests so they supported me through liking my blog post, sharing it on twitter and Facebook, and by leaving a comment or two to make me feel that I deserve to be chosen as one of the 20 bloggers who will win a gift certificate from Nuffnang.

When I learned that I won, I was ecstatic because I have been longing to buy Native Shoes for my kids but just couldn’t afford it ( I mean I don’t have the budget yet to buy for two pairs of Native Shoes). I checked out Native Shoes online to see what style should I buy for my two kids. When the GCs arrived, I was happy and sad at the same time. Why? Because the GCs can only be used in the Trinoma branch.

I live in the province and if I have to use the GC in Trinoma, I need to book a flight and that would be very expensive for me. True blogging friends came in the picture to rescue me from my predicament. Sis Sam told me that she lives near Trinoma and that she could buy the pairs for me, actually I asked her to buy it for me (hahaha). Sent her the GCs and the shoe size of my two kids and told her the style I want. I am so glad that I have met online friends who are really nice and kind, and trust worthy too. Though I have not met her in person, Sam treats me like a sister already and I am glad I have found gold nuggets in a stack of hay.

I have chosen the Miller in Pink for my baby daughter and Sam chose Corrado in Sky Blue for my son. When the Native Shoes arrive, my two kids cannot wait but open the package without me!

Choosing the Right Investment

If you have enough money to start your own business or to invest it into something that will give you the right income, where will you invest it? Choosing the right investment is the key to earning the right income or give you the right ROI in a specific period of time. I am not claiming or saying that I am a good investor of money but I don’t hastily invest my money to different business proposals that comes my way. I meticulously choose where to invest my money and if I do think that it is an income generating proposal then I would go for it.

One way to invest your money is through buying gold. Gold is a good investment because its value always appreciates. But before you start investing in it, you should first know how to buy gold bars in order to maximize your investment.

Another good way of investing your money is through opening a new business. A new business that has a fast ROI. If you are investing in a new business make sure that you know the ins and outs of it.

Turn OFF that Location Services Settings for your Photos

You have probably seen that VIDEO about how scary it is to take our photos using our cellphones. And just like you, I am scared to death too. Imagine how easy it is for criminals to look for us just by looking at our photos that we have uploaded in our social media accounts. Some of my photos are posted publicly, because I need to and I want to, though I am not a celebrity or a famous person, I have my own reasons that is why I cannot simply upload it privately.

Here let me show you how I turned off my Location Services setting for my photos in my smart phone. Some people might think this is stupid (my HOW TO turn it off) but believe me, there are people who doesn’t know how to do it simply because they don’t care much about their cell phones, they just use it for making calls, for texting, for taking photos but they don’t check every thing in their phones, they don’t even know what is the IMEI number of their smart phones and doesn’t even care where they can find it.

First, you need to go to your iPhone’s Settings, it looks like this:
IMG_9832

Then look for the PRIVACY. When you are in the privacy settings, tap that Location Services:

IMG_9833

You can choose to TURN IT ALL OFF just by touching that circle beside the ON. But please, don’t because you need the location services when you use the Google Maps, and it might come handy when your iPhone gets stolen.
IMG_9834You just have to turn the Location Services for your Camera and other Photo editing apps in here:

This might sound or look ridiculous for those tech savvy people out there, but for those who don’t know what to do, this might be of great help to you.

My Super Circle Plan GLOBE

It’s been two years already.

That is why I have called Globe Hotline to renew my contract with them, with regards to My Super Circle Plan. I applied for a Super Circle Plan with Globe two years ago because it is a GREAT offer. Imagine, 3 phones, 3 numbers, 3 unlicall and unlitext line for only 1500php per month! It is a great saving as long as the other two users, including you of course, will not SUBSCRIBE to ring backs, club media content, and other ADDITIONAL subscription that will make your BILL soar higher than the 1500php plan bill. We had three (3) Samsung Corby II phones back then, and now I ordered for two (2) Samsung Kyle and one (1) Blackberry 9320. I don’t have to pay anything or there are no CASH-OUT for the 3 units but I need to pay for additional 99php per phone as a TOP-UP of the bill because the three phones I ordered are internet capable.

I am glad that the Talk to Globe Specialist is so helpful and a very good agent (I am sorry but I also have bad experiences with other Talk to Globe hotline agents who are so arrogant and over-bearing).

Mommy Bright Side: A Breastfeeding Awareness Campaign

I am a Proud BREASTFEEDING MOM to two kids and I am not ashamed of it. When I gave birth to my first-born, I was not scared to breastfed him and even though it hurt so much, I still push through with the breastfeeding because I know he will greatly benefit from it. And because I am a breastfeeding advocate I am inviting you all for a Breastfeeding Awareness Campaign that will happen on August 3, 2013 at Centrio Mall from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. This event came about through Mommy Bright Side’s idea in cooperation with the German Doctor’s Mother Club and and Breastfeeding Pinays.

The activity or project is entitled, Coming Together, Feeding Together – “A Breastfeeding Awareness Campaign” that aims to promote the importance of providing a stronger support system to breastfeeding mothers and their babies.
