Summer picnics get all the glory but as autumn-loving, we prefer this colourful season for eating outside. Just because there’s a chill in the air, doesn’t mean you have to stay inside. There are lots of activities traditionally associated with late spring and summer that can still be enjoyable in cooler weather. Continue reading

Apple picking is, and has seemingly always been, a quintessential fall activity – a total must. What better way to enjoy a fall day than getting the family out of the house and into the country. Besides, is there anything more delicious than taking a bite from a perfectly succulent apple plucked right from the tree? I certainly don’t think so. Continue reading

Christmas is coming. Every year, everyone celebrates this special holiday season. This is not just for kids, but also for the whole family. It is the time for love, happiness and forgiveness. I love Christmas. Decorating the tree. Picking out special gifts to give to my loved ones. Listening to holiday themed songs on the radio. Watching heart warming films such as ”Home Alone”, ”It’s a Wonderful Life” and cartoons like ”Frosty the Snowman”. I love the twinkling lights. The celebration of Christmas makes me happy.

Sometimes people get sad around their birthdays because they feel time is going by quickly and they’ve not achieved much in life. This mostly happens when you are in your late 20s or early 30s. We become very critical of how we’ve led our lives as compared to others around us. Most times these are baseless worries. Because we are humans, we fall into the trap of analyzing and self-deprecating. While such introspection is natural, it is not really necessary particularly if it borders on negativity. We will achieve what we’re meant to achieve in due course of time. So if it is something like that, hang in there, keep doing your best and things will happen. Continue reading

Having a pet is usually a rite of childhood. Whether it is a bunny or gold fish, a dog, cat or horse, children enjoy the companionship offered by animals. Did you know, however, that not only can pets be a source of warm, fuzzy entertainment, but they can offer several developmental benefits to children as well? A child’s physical, social, emotional and cognitive development can all be encouraged by interaction with the family pet. Most children love animals and at some point they desire to have a pet of their own. Now, before you say, “no way are we getting a pet!” there are actually some major benefits that pets provide for children.

Green Smoothies

Hello Everyone! Today, I would like to speak with you about our healthy life. 🙂 I love a lot smoothies. I find that smoothies let you consume a lot more fruit than you usually would during a sitting, which means that even if you’re not adding sweeteners like honey or agave, you’ll still be getting a good deal of sugar. Green smoothies are not only a unique colour but they also offer unique health benefits. Made with leafy greens that are loaded with antioxidants and vitamins, green smoothies are an excellent way to enjoy a delicious drink that satisfies hunger and offers maximum nutrition.

Sunkissed

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

My mom always told me my freckles were “sun kisses.” We all have cells in our skin called melanocytes. These specialized cells are designed to protect us from the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun. They do so by producing a pigmented protein called melanin. Melanin acts like a pair of sunglasses for your skin by making it darker. In many people, these melanocytes are spread out evenly throughout the body, but in others they are not. They get bunched up together, resulting in freckles. Continue reading
