Better yet, you can expect to receive a refund when you send the item back.

3. Classic staples. Having a few classic staples in your closet that you can pair or mix and match with various outfits is a good idea. It makes your wardrobe look larger than it actually is and it makes you feel better about your style and what you wear to work on a daily basis. Some classic staples to consider purchasing are cardigans in various colors, slacks in black and khaki, pantyhose, and casual but nice dress shirts. Women can also have a few classic staple jewelry items such as small hoop earrings or small earrings.

4. Accessories and shoes. No outfit is complete without the proper accessories and pair of shoes. Be sure to wear jewelry and carry a matching handbag with you at a minimum.

Traveling with Your Baby: How to Get Organized

Traveling is never a simple feat and much less easy when you’re traveling with a baby. Babies require so much care during trips. A lot of parents get edgy when making plans to travel with their babies and this is partly because they are not exactly sure of what to expect while on the trip.

Here are a few pointers to help you organize yourself, your baby and your luggage before a scheduled trip to avoid panic attacks and leaving important things behind.

Plan ahead of time and ensure all important items are packed accordingly in your luggage. The last thing you need is to forget important stuff like travel documents or your little angel’s favorite toy. Put all the stuff you’ll need during the trip in your hand luggage for quick and easy access.

Get enough sleep the night before the big trip. Being groggy can cause you to make slip ups, like forgetting the hand luggage and carrying the golf bag instead. Being tired during the trip is not good for you for safety reasons. So rest well and stay alert during the trip.

Help your baby sleep by giving soothing back rubs or singing lullabies. When your baby is asleep during trips, it makes it easier on you and other passengers.

Stick to your regular routines. Feed your baby on schedule, change diapers on time and keep him/her entertained and comfortable.

Bring along favorite toys, pack bite sized snacks and make requests for liquids if you can’t travel with yours.

Also pack along a medical kit and be certain that your insurance policies are up to date and cover your and your baby where you are headed.

3 Tips to selecting the best air conditioning unit for your home

Just like any other furniture and appliances in your home, choosing the best air conditioning unit is an important decision that you will have to make. If it is done correctly, it can be an important investment. On the other hand, it can potentially cost you extra money for energy expenses as well.

You simply can’t just select a small unit to a large space, as you will never reach the preferred cool temperature you want. When the summer heat arrives, you would want to have the best and most reliable cooling unit possible. You need to consider a lot of factors when choosing an air conditioning unit. One of this is determining the correct size that suits the size of your room. You to will also need to check the cooling and heating capacity of the unit.

The best ones in the market out there operate on minimal electricity and pretty efficient. They also provide reliable performance for longer periods of times so long as properly maintained. They also produce less carbon footprint, emits minimal noise, and long-lasting.

Here are 3 tips to selecting the best air conditioning unit for your home.

  1. Calculate the square footage of your room in order to find the correct size of air conditioning unit.

You may need a professional or contractor in this matter to determine the optimum size and also study the cooling requirements of your home. Things like window dimensions, floor space, heat-generating appliances, and even your area’s climate need to be considered. This way, it will be determined if the cooling capacity of the system matches your home’s needs.

In measuring though, the calculation is done by square feet. In order for you to get the right numbers, you need to do some measuring by finding out the length and width of your room and multiplying them together.  Depending on the result, there will be a corresponding BTU’s needed in order to meet your needs. For example, in a 150 square feet room, you will need 5000 BTU’s.

  1. Choose the air conditioners that are energy efficient.

It is required by law for air conditioner manufacturers to rate their equipment according to its energy efficiency. This is called the SEER or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. The higher it is, the more efficient the equipment. They can be more expensive, but in the long run, it can easily make up the difference as it can reduce your energy bills. You can also save a lot of bills if you choose air conditioners such as a Mitsubishi Mr Slim since it can already cool up to two adjoining rooms. You can check out AC online to find energy-efficient air-conditioning units.

  1. Check the condition of your ducts.

Before choosing and installing an air conditioning unit, it is important to check the condition of ducts, especially to existing homes. If it is leaked or does not deliver the right amount of air, it could potentially increase your energy bills. This is an important step that needs to be looked at in order to avoid paying extra bucks in the future.

Wow, I did not expect for Victoria’s Secret select products to come down more this week! Just yesterday I received a $15 gift card from them again and decided to go out the house and go to the store today. I was really surprised to see that their beauty favorites have come down to 75% now.

I bought three gift sets which I did not think of buying today but geeeez I could not resist the deal they offer. I paid $11.34 for the two gift sets in white box and a little over $12 for the red one after using the $15 gift card on hand. I wished the other customer did not get the other red, I like it more than the white one. But, I should not complain I got a great deal you know?

If only I had a lot of money, I would have bought a lot of the products that had gone down so much and send them to the Philippines! Grrrr. Too bad I no longer work to be able to afford to buy some more of these awesome goodness deals.

Victoria’s Secret ever loyal shopper here.

But for future fiancés, the hunt for the perfect engagement ring might prove to be tedious. Not only do you have to think about the size and design, but there are also the technical aspects of choosing an engagement ring. Not to mention that there are thousands of designs available on the market today.

If you are thinking of getting engaged soon, here are some handy tips to that you can follow to make sure that you will be able to get a gorgeous engagement ring for your future fiancée.

  1. Spend time on your decision – don’t put off going to the jewelry store to the last minute. Some spend weeks and even months studying up on engagement rings. If you are going for a custom design, it would also need more time. So you need to plan and manage your time perfectly when deciding on the engagement ring to buy.
  2. Research on your future fiancee’s style – since they will be the one wearing the ring, you need to make sure that you choose a style that they are sure to love. Think of yourself as a detective and peruse through her social media accounts to check if she has liked or posted anything that could help you. You can also look through her present jewelry collection to find similar styles. Better yet, you can ask for the opinion of her best gal pals to help you in making your choice.
  3. Make sure you have the right size – all the work and research will be for nothing if the ring won’t fit right. So make it easier for yourself and just get one of her old rings to know her size. If that is not possible, ask one of her friends to help you out without spilling anything of course.
  4. Study up on the 4C’s – if you’re determined to have a diamond engagement ring, then you need to know more about the four C’s that determines a diamond’s quality. They are color, cut, clarity, and carat. If you want your ring to have all four, be prepared to spend a lot of money.

I don’t use body wash but I am still buying them due to the fact that my family in the Philippines might be glad to experience having an imported body wash for to smoothing their skin.

Someone posted that $5 sport bras on Facebook group I am a member of last week and I went to the Victoria’s Secret store three days ago and asked the associate if the $5 bras were true. She said they were but no longer $5. They are now $7 and led me to the next room where these bras were placed/displayed. $14.99 tags and checked out, told the person at the register they are $7 according to the sales person so she override the price. I paid both for just $1.06 that is including tax using my $15 birthday gift card.

That $15 birthday gift card from Victoria’s Secret is something all card holders will get when their birthday is approaching, it’s June and I’m a June baby that is why I got it in advance. Deals like this I consider are just one of the sweetest for I almost got them for free! I am lucky as usual.
