Tricks for Keeping the Bathroom Dry

When you are taking a bath or a shower, the one thing that you want to avoid at all times is moisture. Wet bathrooms become a serious safety hazard and can cause injuries if you do not make plans in advance. Therefore, it is imperative that you take precaution with your bathroom showers, as this can save a lot of hassle and pain in the future. Sturdy shower rods and drying materials help to create a safe environment to bathe in twice a day.

When you bathe, it is an exhilarating experience that must be as safe as possible. Shower expansion rods are a great item to give your shower the flexibility that it needs. They reduce the chance of your curtain falling, which can create a water hazard in your bathroom. Simply extend your shower curtain rods to the length necessary so that you do not have to worry about a tight fit. Bathroom standing showers are also beneficial if you do not take baths often. If you seal off the shower, this can create a reservoir for the water so that it does not seep onto the floor. Also, standing showers allow you to dry yourself off after you bathe, so that your feet are not wet when you step out onto the floor.

Your bathroom contains a lot of hard corners and rough surfaces, so slipping can turn into a hazard. It is important to reduce issues with water in your bathroom by installing different items to improve safety and security. This can help you enjoy your invigorating shower experience without worry.

Bela's Souvenir Tags

Almost everything is ready for Bela’s 7th birthday party (well almost as I am still waiting for hubby’s output for the things that he decided to DIY and honestly, I am getting nervous already as I don’t think he will be able to finish it).

But as for the things that I am in charge off, everything is all set to go. This week, I finalized the design for the souvenir that we will be giving out courtesy of Nyree of Embellished Design Studios:

Can you guess what would Bela’s souvenir be?

Bean bags?
Director’s chair?
Wooden basket?
Military coin ? (you can check about military coin here).
Rock star bracelets?

I am keeping it as a secret for now but it is just 3 weeks to go before Bela’s big birthday bash.

Mommy and Daughter Day

Last Saturday, Bela and I were able to enjoy the pool, the food, the rattan outdoor furniture and more at Ace Water Spa.
Mommy & Bela's date @ Ace Water Spa

I promised Bela that we will have a mommy and daughter day and her request was that we go to Ace Water Spa. Hubby is away for a planning session so we have no car and so we took the public transportation to go there. We actually got lost as we rode the wrong jeepney and so we have to walk for more than 5 blocks before we reach Ace Water Spa.

We were so hungry when we reached the spa that we had merienda first before going inside.

Bela really had fun as she tries all the amenities from the kiddie pool, the river pool and the different hydro massage (her favorite is the bubble pool and bubble bed).

Despite my blooper, we still had the best mother and daughter day. My heart was filled with joy when Bela told me “Mom, this is the best day ever.”

Bela's Pre-Birthday Shoot

Two weeks ago, hubby has been trying almost everyday to setup a studio at home for Bela’s photo shoot. But since it is a weekday and Bela is tired already from the school, she is always not in the mood for the shoot.

Thankfully, we were able to do an indoor shoot at home last Saturday and an outdoor shoot last Sunday and here is a Sneak Peak from my camera and hubby’s:

Hubby was able to take a lot of good shots that we have a lot to choose from for the invites, save-the-date, VIP backstage pass, and tarpaulin. I have sent two pictures already to my friend Nyree of Embellished Design Studios, which she will use to make the VIP Backstage pass nametags and the Save-the-Date.

I am so excited already and I am sure Bela is as excited as mommy.

Special thanks to hubby who is the photographer for the shoot and my cousin Joseph who is our videographer and MTV editor.
