Dining Table Makeover

Few days before Christmas, I was experimenting and hoping to get a new look for my dining table. I've never replaced my dining table for more than 10 years now and the only way for it to get a new look is to add some highlights on the chairs and have something new for the center piece.  I was really planning to engage myself on some DIY projects but unfortunately, I was very busy preparing as well for my daughter's debut party, so I just tried to make use of what I already have at home and just add some fresh flowers to give my dining table a bit of exciting look. 





I just recycle those peach colored clothes which fortunately match my wall paint which is bright orange.  White fresh flowers are just perfect to accentuate the new table runner (in Christmas motif) that I bought.

What do you think?

Take Time For Yourself While TTC

Starting a family does not only mean having a fully furnished home, a garden, a garage, a car and all the material things that we can possess as a couple.  Starting a family first and foremost requires having children whom you can share your joys with as a couple and as parents. In today's time however, couples are now so preoccupied with work and building their finances that they often neglect the idea of having their own children while still early.  For the others, they considered building a family as a hindrance to doing what they love to do.  They have this thinking that couple can enjoy more their freedom when they don't have a baby at home to look after.  However, time will come that you will get bored going out and enjoying each other, you will surely long for a kid who could inspire your day.

Trying to conceive is an opportunity for couple to be intimate however, some couple becomes too preoccupied with the thought of getting pregnant that they become more and more stressed in trying to conceive, especially those who took several months of trying to conceive. When getting pregnant, it doesn’t mean your relationship will be compromised. Pregnancytips.org says that a couple can still spice up their relationship even though they’re trying to conceive. When you think your relationship is becoming more and more affected because of your TTC journey, don’t waste time, go ahead and schedule a preconception trip with your partner or go out and have a date, do the things you both love and enjoy. Your relationship doesn’t need to be compromised because you’re trying to conceive. 

While building a family needs to be properly planned, it doesn't need to go to the extent that we are already putting pressures to ourselves.  Trying to conceive in the most natural way and at the same time enjoying each other's company can do wonders for a more stable and happy relationship.

Christmas Decorating Need Not Be Expensive

When it comes to decorating, I always have one rule, it shouldn't be expensive and must showcase my creativity.  I am an avid fan of decorations which are nature inspired.  I want that "cooling effect" I experienced brought about by plants and stones.  I also love the idea that I could make use of cheap materials and transform them to a wonderful work of art.  I love DIY decors and the same thing is true for holiday decors.  Christmas spirit can come out alive with wonderful Christmas decors. Christmas season always bring that festive atmosphere.  If you're in a hurry and no time to make your own Christmas decors, you can try getting from color christmas ornaments - christmasplace.com as well.  For sure, they have variety of colorful Christmas ornaments that would suit your theme.

For those who love real bargains, you can visit any local shop or dollar store and shop for affordable materials that you can use in creating your own Christmas trees, Christmas wreaths and lanterns. This will be much cheaper and at the same time, you can showcase your artistic talent and make your friends admire your unique creativity.

Look at this one, isn't it lovely?
