Parenting 101: Raising a well-behaved child.

Being a parent is hard work. Parenting is not something that you can do for a couple of months or years and then just quit because you don't like it. Parenting is for life. And when we parent a child, not only are we raising them in our own household, we are also raising the future generation that will go on and maybe make the world a better place to live in. This generation that we are parenting also has to face the world when they grow up and it is our responsibility as parents to make sure that our children don't go out in the real world and screw it up for everyone else.

There are a few things that definitely should be kept in mind while parenting: Every parent is doing their best. There is no right and wrong with how you raise a child. If certain things don't sit well with you and your parenting style doesn't mean that you have to do it. Things, like breast-fed is best should not be the main focus of concern. With this developing day and age, a well-fed child is what really matters in the end. Whether you are putting your child in a walker, or co-sleeping with them or using a crying out method, these are all down to individual parents. As long as you are raising a happy healthy baby, no one should really bother with anything.

A Letter to my 18 Year Old Self.

Naive: Someone who once was very close to me, called me THAT, when I was debating over a lost relationship. I had to google what it meant. But for some reason, instead of laughing at the meaning, I felt the word striking the very core of my emotional capability. Was I really naive?

Winter Makeup Essentials for Oily Skin.

What comes to your mind when you think of winter? Snow covered mountains? Cosy jumpers and hot cocoa? But what comes to the mind of a beauty lover? Makeup and how to handle the skin that changes its texture and oil levels.

With every season comes a different state of makeup essentials. For spring and autumn, you can still make do but summer and winter are the two seasons when your skin and makeup is put to the real test. For me, winter has to be the most difficult. My makeup application changes and so does a few bits from my vanity. I might contradict some opinions but instead of going all matte during winters, I like to have a little bit of a glossy touch on my face while during summer, I prefer to go matte. 

I am on spending ban!

Yep. I am on a spending ban this month. You read that right. You may laugh all you want but I am going to stick through and ban myself from spending so much money on things that I don't need.

Why the ban and what is it all about?

I am boosting my energy levels this winter!

Last winter I was a sloth. I have no shame whatsoever to admit that. I wasted half of my day every single day and then whined about how useless I am with time management (you all best believe me when I say that I suck at organising). But this winter, I am going to make sure that I will be active for at least 70% of the season.
