New Foams

We bought the children new beds and new foams at the beginning of the year. They are complaining the foams are not as soft as the foams they use to have so I decided to look for other alternative and saw foams (click here by the way) that look comfortable and not to mention, not too expensive.

Some of the older foams we had were given to our yard cleaning lady for her use.

There are still two foams but these will be used next week when family relations will be visiting next week at my mother-in-law’s home for a grand family affair. I don’t want these back in our house when they go back to their homes :D

Savvy Shoppers

Teens are savvy shoppers? Teens love jewelry and clothes, and not just the girls but the guys too. There are those who love to buy make-up too. Most of them buy with care especially if they saved for it. So yeah, I think they are savvy shoppers, judging the way my eldest daughter inspects the clothes she wants to buy and taking her sweet time doing the inspection.

As for jewelry, they like either the simple ones of the outrageous ones. My daughters save their money to buy jewelry. No, not the expensive ones but more like something they like in relation to a favorite movie or book. The youngest daughter just got a necklace with the Golden Snitch as a pendant.

I’m sure this site will be like a treasure trove to both of them:D

Electrolux Design Lab 2014 : Creating Healthy Homes


Imagine this: You had an exhausting day at school and you can’t wait to get home and rest. On your way home, the weather was unpredictable and the pollution in the streets was horrible. As you enter your room, you realize that it is not as spotless as you hoped it was. You come in to the kitchen to find good food, but you find nothing on the dining table. You had a draining day and the last thing you would want to do is take care of the household chores.

As you let out a weary sigh, you realize that your home appliances can take care of all these.

Electrolux Design Lab 2014

You see the MAB cleaner scanning your house and deploying its flying mini-robots to the areas in need of cleaning.
