​Tips for a Cozy and Comfortable Bedroom + Metro’s White Sale

If you are following me on my Instagram, you would have seen my post about the need to invest on bedrooms :) Because next to kitchen, I dream of a cozy and comfortable bedroom! A room designed to be homey and personal, has soft and comfy bed, bed linens and pillows; a blanket that warms me when the air-conditioning is too cold for comfort; a room that smells so good that I want to stay longer and get lazy and just snuggle with kids and hubby. So what does it mean to be a cozy and comfortable bedroom? For me, it must have a:

Right Theme
Right color of wall’s paint and window’s curtains accentuate the beauty of the room. Nothing fancy, as long the color is a personal choice then that’s it. For curtains, my husband told me to be adventurous in combining colors – contrast colors are eye-catching and vibrant. You can ask an interior designers for ideas too :)

Comfortable Bed
I experience sleeping on the floor with a banig (Philippine Sleeping Mat). Though hard and gives you back pains, it gives a cool feeling. Also tried mattresses made of foam. It is soft but sultry. Whatever type of bed, be sure it suits you that you wake up full of energy and no pains and soreness on your back and sides.

Q​uality Bed Linens
​In this side of the world where is sun is at its hottest all year round, it is better to choose a material that is soft and breathable to keep you cool.

Pillows
The secret to a good pillow is through its filling. There is that feather or cotton filling that is so soft. Then there is that memory foams that conforms to your head’s shape and returns to each original shape when not used. In my childhood years, we have pillows made of old clothes as fillings. Softness depends on the fabric used, ours was hard and becomes harder the longer we used.

Blankets or Comforters?
My favorite! Indeed a security blanket! I used to have a favorite blanket that I used to rub in on my face before I sleep. It was a super soft blanket but was burned together with our house. The habit eventually stop but the need for soft and warm blanket is still in me. As long as it is soft and I snuggle underneath, then I can easily go to slumber land. The husband has it too! He needs a blanket with a rough texture that he can use for his feet before or during sleep. He can’t sleep without it. My kids on the other hand likes comforters especially when the air-conditioning is too cold. Regardless, blankets or comforters, they are a comfort.

All these comforts are available at Metro at a lower price because they are having a Metro White Sale until November 19, 2017. Metro is giving away 20% to 50% OFF on selected lined products of towels, pillows, mattresses, and bed sheets.
Perfect for room improvements :)

An air purifier, Lampe Berger Paris, now in Cebu

LampeBergerParis_Now in CebuWe love the relaxing smell of our bedroom. The only bedroom closest to the bathroom that has a choky smell in the mornings, yet we still choose to sleep in it. The bathroom has a design flaw with the sewer that probably caused it to smell and in some cases, this smell spreads through the room especially if the bathroom is open. Putting charcoal in the bathroom helps a bit but not totally eliminates the odor. Had consider Essential Oil Diffusers but because of limited budget, it was not realized. Humidifiers or air fresheners was never an option…until I was given the Lampe Berger Paris Coffrete Bingo gift set when I attended the Lampe Berger Paris product launching event held last August 5, 2017, at The Pyramid, IT Park, Cebu City.

LampeBergerParis_Lamp 1

115 years ago, Lampe Berger was initially designed to purify the air in the hospitals, thanks to the French pharmacist, Maurice Berger. Over the years, Lampe Berger creates a variety of elegant stylish lamps and then fragrance is incorporated to add pleasure and delight and paved way to be available to our homes.

How to use?
The Lampe Berger Paris gift comes with the lamp and the fragrance. All you have to do is fill the lamp with 2/3 of fragrance of your choice. Insert the wick and screw the lid and leave it for 20 minutes for the wick to absorb the liquid. Once the wick has absorbed the alcohol based liquid, light the ceramic top of the wick and let it burn for a 2 minutes and then blow it out. The “catalytic oxidation” process of the burner will do the magic for 4-5 hours. It comforted me to know that this process will eliminate the odor not just mask it, re-assuring that the indoor air in the room is pure and clean. Also, it is safer to use because there’s no open flame.

Fragrances:
Lampe Berger’s fragrances are made of natural and synthetic ingredients that are stable and reliable that when blended, it creates a fragrance of great character. It is alcohol-based purifying fragrance. However, if you are sensitive to scents, they have Neutral Purifying Scent that purifies the air without releasing any scents. This Neutral Purifying Scents is also used to clean the lamp in case you want to change your fragrance.

I tried Lampe Berger Eucalyptus Purifying Scent that has an invigorating fragrance. Eucalyptus scent improves breathing and brings warmth to the heart. It makes our room smells so good :)

Good News Cebu!
Lampe Berger Paris, will be available to us as it opens its store in Ayala Center Cebu this coming August 21, 2017.

Nutri10 Plus

If you have super active and at same time picky eater child, like mine, I’m sure you also worry if the nutrient from the food they consume is sufficient. Sure my kids eat spaghetti and chicken adobo but when you give them sautéed mixed vegetables, then it’s a different story as it takes more minutes for a spoonful of veggies to be chewed and swallowed. (Making dishes more colorful is still a work in progress for me :) )

To supplement the lacking vitamins, minerals and nutrients, we give our kids multivitamins. Nowadays, more multivitamins options means more choices thus, its okey to be mindful on what vitamins and minerals to give to your kids based on their needs.

Are your kid’s immunity low? no energy to play? too thin or small for his/her age? too tired to do their assignments? iron-deficient? Is a little of something combined together a good choice or one vitamin or mineral at time better Whatever the need, be sure to pick the right multivitamin with the most stuff your kids need.

Nutri10 Plus

Then there’s Nutri10 Plus.

Discover StickerKid Sticker Labels

I have two kids — a 10yo daughter and a 5yo son. At 5 years apart and considering their gender, they have different preferences on toys, books, clothes and some other stuffs. However, with the age gap, most often than not they still want to have some stuff that match such as choice of snacks or merienda, water bottles or lunch boxes.

For identification, I labelled their things using permanent marker but after multiple washings, markings fade or worst case, wash off. And then moments come that they overlook those identifications and then I thought it would never make a difference because they are siblings and these are washed anyway, until one got sick from coughs and colds and I’m afraid it will do more harm.

And then StickerKid came.
Yep, StickerKid, from Switzerland, reached out and asked if we could try their products.

StickerKid is an online store that designs and produces high quality Swiss-made personalized sticker labels for school supplies, lunch boxes, water bottles, clothes and other belongings worth to label.

We were grateful to be given a sponsored code and avail “Discovery Pack” which consist of:

What we love about StickerKid:

*** User friendly online purchase procedure.

*** Can be shipped worldwide. They shipped as far as Philippines :)

*** From the looks of it, the labels are of good quality and true to its claimed that it can withstand multiple washings. Unfortunately, the label on the water bottle’s cover peeled off after 2 weeks but labels in water bottle’s body and lunch boxes are still stuck. Also, labels on their bags, pencils and crayons are still stuck too.

*** Attractive colors. We chose yellow for the small sticker and green for the medium stickers are attractive and bright, thus can easily be spotted.
