  • Soothe Cough with Ginger

    Posted on July 30, 2014 @ 4:55 pm

    When the illness strikes your family, it’s easy to reach for the medicine cabinet and give your little one a doze to soothe her cough. But if you want to fight back cough with a drug-free strategy ginger can do the job. The spice promotes salivation, which helps calm a hacking cough.

    ginger

    A teaspoon of ginger juice can settle your child immediately. Simply make it by grating fresh ginger, then squeeze with your hand to get the juice. Store bought ginger juice will also do the trick. To make the juice more palatable, mix it with a bit of honey.

    Ginger is also a proven tummy soother, so if your kid has an upset stomach from the flu, the spice will offer double duty relief.

    Getting the Right Accessories

    Posted on @ 3:40 pm

    Choosing the wrong accessories can easily ruin an otherwise great outfit. On the other hand, an ordinary outfit can look fabulous with the right accessories.

    Some women choose not to accessorize because they are afraid they might not be able to match them perfectly. The good news is, it’s actually easy to learn how to mix and match your accessories. If you don’t know what to do, here are some tips.

    jewelry

    Accessories usually include shoes, handbags, scarves, hats, belts, hair ornaments, jewelries, eyeglasses, sunglasses and hosiery and socks. You use these things to highlight your best points and minimize your worst, get the look you want, make a fashion statement, bring an older outfit up to date, make a plain outfit look stunning, change the look of an outfit and feel good about yourself.

    The key to accessorizing right is to think how you want to wear an outfit before buying it, then think of the accessories you will wear to complete the look. It’s always better to buy clothes and wholesale jewelry from sfb at the same time, so you’ll have an idea how your look would turn out. You don’t want to spend money only to find out that the outfit doesn’t quite work.

    A BICYCLE spray-painted bright orange and chained to a pole caught my eye at the local mall. I quickly realized there were several similarly sprayed bicycles nearby. A salesclerk helped me unravel the mystery. Turns out a fitness center called Orangetheory opened up at Peninsula Village Mall recently and the once discarded bikes became perfect sculptures to draw attention.

    Relaxing Music

    Posted on July 24, 2014 @ 7:35 pm

    Listening to oldies is a nice break from the noisy songs my son listens to. I was playing some old songs from my computer when I happened to stumble upon this on youtube. It’s an old Beatles song and it’s one of my favorites. I grew up singing to their songs because they’re my dads favorite band. The one I found on youtube is a different arrangement; I’m guessing a fender robert schmidt mandolin was used to play the song. It’s very relaxing to listen to it.

    Tips for Stress-Free Road Trips

    Posted on June 23, 2014 @ 8:58 pm

    Summer is not complete without an out of town vacation, but if just the thought of your kids’ bickering and whines makes you want to stay home all summer, take heart. Here are some tips to make your road trip stress free.

    roadtrip 2

    Nix backseat boredom

    To keep your tweens from asking the dreaded “Are we there yet?” questions, equip them with a map. You can easily print a map from your place to where you are going from maps.google.com. Circle your start and end points and challenge your kids to track your progress with a highlighter. They’ll have loads of fun highlighting the map and even marking landmarks and matching symbols. For the little ones, you can give them coloring books and other activity books.

    End sibling squabbles

    Bored kids usually end up arguing because when they are stuck in a small space for a long time, even minor irritants can get blown out of proportion. To avoid this, play exciting games like singing a phrase from a song, then let your kids think of phrase from another song starting with the last word of your song. Or you can start saying a quirky sentence, then let them take turns adding a sentence. To ensure they listen to each other, let them repeat the previous sentence before adding a new one.

    roadtrip 1

    Hope these tips help. The games will keep their minds active and focused and yours, relaxed and calm on the road during the trip.
