Kids and Mothers- Maintaining a Good Relationship


The relationship that children and their mothers share is special and essential. They should have a bond that is based on mutual love, respect and understanding. Right from an early age, children need to be aware of how important it is to respect their parents. Establishing and developing a healthy relationship with your kids is vital for their overall wellbeing and your peace of mind.

Spending Quality Time Together

One of the most important gifts that both you and your children can give each other is quality time. Spending as much time as you can with children ensures that they feel loved and valued. The more time you spend with a child, the better you are able to know and understand them.

It also enables you to create a living environment that is conducive to communication between members of the family. Children enjoy outings and fun moments. Set aside some time to take your children out and participate in their favorite activities.

Avoid Tension

Make an effort to speak to your children calmly, even when they make mistakes or misbehave. Yelling at them and being intimidating will create tension and unnecessary fear. Whether you are asking questions, having a conversation or instilling discipline, a calm tone is ideal.

The love for your kids is unconditional and a mother’s love does not fade, however wrong or naughty they may be. If your child misbehaves, do not hold grudges or make them feel like they are no longer loved. Find the best wifi baby monitor here.


While making your children feel special is important, you should also make sure that you let them know whenever they do not do the right thing. Do not agree with or support any bad deeds that your child does because this sets a precedent for much worse behavior in the future.

Teach your child clearly about the difference between wrong and right. Children should be aware of how they should behave as soon as possible. If you do not let your child know the basic aspects of virtues such as respect and patience, they will grow up without them. As a mother, you have the responsibility to guide your children and provide them with knowledge.

Monitoring Behavior

Keep track of your kid’s attitude without interfering with their lives. You can monitor your child’s behavior to ensure that you know what is going on in terms of aspects such as the friends they are associating with and academic progress.

Mothers should keep up with their children’s lives without invading their need for privacy or making them feel like you are constantly spying on them. Let your child know that he or she can trust you and does not have to withhold secrets from you.


Mothers are responsible for their children’s development and general wellbeing. As a child grows and becomes older, the level of support and involvement that is associated with motherhood will inevitably change. Mothers go through the growth process with their children.

Maintaining a good relationship with your kids will help them develop socially and emotionally. Mothers are responsible for initiating this type of relationship by giving them opportunities to develop, showing love, care and concern.

7 Things You Can Do Daily To Improve Your Life


Ever thought of improving your life? Sure, you have. We all have and many of us talk ourselves out of it because we think it has to be all consuming, a total life transformation. We tend to get overwhelmed and never move forward. You’ve heard that old saying “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time” I am going to share with you small bite sizes that you can chew on and make long term positive results to improving your life:

1.) Sleep – Sleep is important part of living a healthy lifestyle. Getting enough sleep can benefit your weight mind and temperament. Remember that saying: “Early to be bed,early to rise makes a man (wo-man) healthy, wealthy and wise” is true!

2.) Eat Breakfast – Starting your day with a healthy balanced breakfast just sets your day up for success. Eating breakfast helps you maintain a healthy weight, it get that metabolism going. You are able to concentrate more and stay focused throughout the day. It gives you energy to handle that to-do list plus more.

3.) Exercise – Ok let’s just get this one out of the way. Exercise has so many benefits for you that I can fill this magazine with all of them but I will keep it simple. Exercise help control your weight, stabilize your mood, gives you a boost of energy and just give your self esteem a boost!!!

4.) Plan your day – Before you get to bed, take about 10 minutes to set up your next day. Jot down your to-do list and you will find that you will sleep better and the next day, you will start the day in control, focused and prepared. When you plan your day you have a sense of control and a sense of accomplishment because you can actually see your to do list turn into to done.

5.) Read a book – Knowledge is power and reading daily will not only give you knowledge but it will keep your mind stimulated cutting down on the likely hood of you getting Alzheimer’s and Dementia. The mind is a muscle that need exercise just like the rest of your body.

6.) Play– Yes, we are grown but we need to have play time. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate game, you can color, do a jigsaw puzzle, a crossword puzzle a game on your phone. Play time can relive stress, reduce anxiety and lift your spirits.

7.) Smile – We know that working out releases endorphins but did you know that when you smile you release endorphins as well? Well it does, and it is contagious. Smiling makes difficult times better. A smile definitely have a positive effect own your well-being. It is so much better the RBF. Enjoy life and smile, you are helping the world!

Help Scalisi Skincare name their new Serum launching November 1


Scalisi Skincare’s Game-Changer Serum doesn’t even have an official name yet and is creating a lot of buzz at my house. It’s been my experience that skincare, for the most part, doesn’t solve your problems overnight but certain skincare will solve them if you use them consistently. Since being introduced to facial serums several years ago, I can honestly say that they have to have certain qualities in order for me to continue using them. The Game Changer Serum is light and non-greasy, smells fabulous like delicate rose petals and will leave your skin dry and smooth within seconds. You can wear foundation over the serum, without it feeling heavy. It’s oil and paraben-free and perfect for all skin types. I have been using The game Changer Serum and I love how my skin feels.

Of course, there are a few factors that intrigued me about The Game Changer Serum:

This unique serum will improve radiance and evens skin tone; The serum will smoothe, hydrate and reduce the appearance of pores as well as diminishes the appearance of fine lines and imperfections by using soft diffusers.

The Game Changer Serum has patented peptides working to visibly correct skin imperfections and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; The serum is formulated with dermal fillers to help restore skin volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and Sodium Hyaluronate to provide deep hydration.

It is rich in oligosaccharides to improve skin by minimizing the appearance of enlarged pores; contains color correctors to help neutralize sallow tones by combining the perfect balance of translucent microspheres, precious gold particles, and photoluminescent technology. This serum also contains Ascorbyl Glucoside, a natural form of vitamin C that helps promote collagen synthesis and helps inhibit melanin production for a skin brightening effect.

After reading these  qualities, I couldn’t resist trying The Game Changer Serum. This new serum is expected to launch on 1st November 2016. Scalisi Skincare is offering an amazing giveaway in which one winner will be announced who will receive a year’s supply of Scalisi Skincare products that include 6 collection sets, worth a total of $1200.

Macadamia Professional International Creative Director, Giannandrea, Styles Emmy Rossum for Emmy’s


Here is the step-by-step “how to” for Emmy Rossum’s gorgeous cascading waves from last night’s 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

Hair How To: Emmy Rossum’s Glamorous Waves

Hairstylist: Giannandrea, International Creative Director for Macadamia Professional

1.)     Starting with wet hair, apply a palm-sized amount of Macadamia Professional Foaming Volumizer ($25; from roots to ends.

2.)     Rough dry hair with head upside down to create extra volume.

3.)     When hair is 90% dry, apply a small amount of Macadamia Professional Blow Dry Lotion ($19.95; to large sections and dry hair using a medium-sized round brush. Once dry, pin each section with a clip to hold the volume.

4.)     When all sections are dry, unpin and lightly brush the hair. Create a deep side part.

5.)     Wrap medium sections around a 1” curling iron. When all the hair is curled, spray Macadamia Professional Flex Hold Shaping Hairspray ($19.95; to set the style. Lightly brush hair to slightly loosen the waves.

6.)     Take a dime-size amount of Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Oil Treatment ($39.95; and lightly run through the lengths of hair to increase shine and smooth frizz.

Get The Look: Abigail Spencer in Avon

Lauren’s Inspiration: Playful, 1940s glamour.
Avon Celebrity Makeup Artist Lauren Andersen worked with actress Abigail Spencer for tonight’s Emmy Awards. Below is how to get the look from Lauren.
Face: We wanted Abigail’s skin to look fresh, soft and glowing. I dotted concealer under her eyes and to the inner corners to cover any slight imperfections. Next, I applied Avon Ideal Luminous Blush in Heavenly Pink to the apples of her cheeks. To add an all over glow, I dusted Avon Glow Bronzing Powder all over her skin, including along the hairline.
Eyes: I lined her eyes with Avon True Color Glimmersticks Waterproof Eye Liner in Brown Chocolate, smudging the liner into the outer corner of the lash line for a barely there hint of color. We wanted big, flirty lashes to compliment her rosey lip. I applied NEW Avon True Color Wide Awake Mascara in Black to really open her eyes. A structured brow completed and framed her eyes.  I applied Avon Perfect Eyebrow Kit in Deep Brown to fill in her brows and keep them perfectly groomed.
Lips: I wanted her lips to be the focus of her look, keeping the rest of her face clean and glowing. I applied Avon True Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick in Ravishing Rose to lips for a gorgeous pop of color.
Avon products are available at and through Avon Representatives.
