How to Choose the Best Holiday Gifts for Your Loved Ones

As the holiday season approaches, you may be starting to think about what gifts you should get for your loved ones. Whether you have a large, diverse family of people who expect gifts, or only a few people who are close to you to shop for, the sooner you start planning for the holidays the better. And, of course, you want to make sure that you choose gifts for people that they'll actually like, instead of simply returning them for a refund. As you make your shopping list for holiday gifts for the people in your life, keep these ideas in mind. 

Think About Their Interests

All too often, people will go shopping with the best of intentions, only to end up with a gift that the recipient doesn't care about at all. That's often because people go shopping with their own thoughts and desires at the forefront of their mind. Instead, spend some time thinking about the person you are shopping for. What are their interests, hobbies, or passions? Do they collect anything? Is there a subject that they have expressed an interest in learning about? Buying a gift that accurately fits their interests not only makes it more likely that they'll love the present, it also shows them that you care enough to pay attention to their interests and ideas.

Staycation: A Cost Effective Alternative To Family Vacations

Family vacations can be costly events. When you get finished factoring in the cost of travel, the hotel stay, and food, there's barely any money left for entertainment. This is why it may be a good idea to create a more cost effective alternative to the traditional family vacation. A staycation takes a lot of bite out of the budget by eliminating the travel and gas cost. This, in turn, creates more money for the fun parts of the vacation and saves you a ton of time and money. Staycations let you get to the fun right away.

You Won't Waste Money on Gas or Travel
One of the obvious benefits of opting to stay in town for a vacation is all the money that you save on gas and travel. This can range from hundreds to even thousands of dollars depending on where you are going. Gas isn't getting any cheaper and neither are airline tickets. The time and money that you save on travel can create an opportunity to book a more exclusive hotel or go to that nice restaurant across town. This alone is a saves a lot of money. There's no need to worry about unknown areas. Since you're staying in town, you probably won't need that wallet gun holster either.

Signs of Basement Water Damage

While some people have unfinished basements that they use as laundry rooms or storage areas, many people finish their basements and use that space in fun ways. You can create your own home office, a home theater for watching films with loved ones or a rec room that makes it easy for you to host parties for kids and adults. If you notice a musty smell that lingers in the air, you may have some water damage in your basement. You'll want to look at some other signs of water damage in that space too.

Spots on the Walls and Floors

You should check both the walls and floors for any spots that look out of place. When you finished that basement, you probably painted the walls or installed wallpaper and put down some new flooring. You know exactly how the walls and floors should look, which makes it easy to determine if there are unusual spots. Spots that are white or a lighter color and have a powdery finish can indicate mildew. Mold, which is a sign of water damage, can be dark brown, green or even black.

Insect Infestations

If you leave the basement windows open for a few hours to let in some fresh air, you probably expect to see some flies and other insects buzzing around. You do not expect to see a larger presence of bugs when you leave the windows closed though. Insects like spiders and termites can be a sign that your basement has some type of water damage. As water seeps through the cracks and holes in the walls and foundation, the liquid can enlarge those openings and allow bugs to come through too. The bugs can come through the walls as the water moves them away from their natural habitats also.

Standing Water

The biggest sign that you have a problem in your basement is when you see puddles of standing water. While this can occur right after a flood, it can also occur when you have a mild rainstorm. This is a clear sign that the water has a way inside your home. If you have more serious foundatwet basement repair Buffalo New York residents who own their own homes can get relief from all the water damage they see in their basements.

Boy Zugba’s extensive menu is a reconciliation of past and present home cooking and Filipino street food, continuously catering every Filipino’s taste buds with premium food selection and caliber customer service. Food is intended for sharing and is characterized by a familiarity of flavors and the memories they bring back. 

Its extensive menu is a sure crowd pleaser, full of things people really love to eat, with choices ranging from an array of grilled food items, as well as meals that we normally see in karenderias or eat at home, which are wittingly dubbed with Bisaya names such as Pisbol sa Corrales, Pansit sa Pulis, and Sinuglaw de Cagayan– true to its form as a proudly Kusina Bisaya food joint. 


This year, after almost over a year of opening its latest branch at Centrio Ayala Mall, Boy Zugba has been proudly recognized and awarded by Ayala with the “Most Promising Retailer” Award last June 15, 2017.

Grill Hacks

Photo: Google Image

There's nothing like grilling out with the family as a way to enjoy the outdoors. A benefit of a grill is that it doesn't require any electricity, which cuts back on the utility bill, and you usually don't retain all of the grease that you would if you were to fry foods all the time or even bake them. There are a few hacks for your grill that will make it easier to keep the device clean and even upgrade your experience with faster cooking times. Grill grates are an investment that you want to make as they are easier to use than placing the foods that you want to prepare directly on the grilling surface. You can get disposable grates or those that are like a pan that you would put in the oven. These are easy to clean and can be reused each time you grill.

How to Get Your Dream Car Within Budget


For many, the expense of buying and running a vehicle is so great that it is hard to imagine being able to afford your dream car. Instead of selecting your ideal features and finishes, you may have to settle for whatever model you can afford, but once budget has been decided, it is the look and aesthetic of a car that draws us to buy it – there’s an inner battle : do you deny yourself all of the latest features and be too thrifty, or do you splash out for the sake of appearances and feel too reckless? Luckily there are ways to get the best of both worlds. Below is a list of ideas on how to get your dream car within budget.

Get Rid of Cockroaches – Permanently!

Most people are freaked out at the mere sight of a cockroach. At worst, their saliva and droppings transfer diseases that can seriously harm humans. To get the most reliable information on fighting a cockroach infestation as well as a free inspection, click here.

In the meantime, you're scrambling for some way to fight off the little beasts as best as you can. Here are some tips that may give you an upper hand.

Start Out Naturally
When it comes to keeping cockroaches out of your home, it's best to go back to basics. Make sure your home is naturally doesn't appeal to roaches as a place to live. You can do this by:
·         Sweeping daily
·         Not leaving food out uncovered
·         Seal up cracks into your home
·         Repair water leaks
·         Remove trash from the kitchen every day
·         Clean your kitchen every evening before bed
These simple steps might seem tedious to do every day. But they really add up in terms of putting up a solid defense against a cockroach invasion.

There are also plenty of suggestions for 'natural' ways to poison or at least deter cockroaches from making themselves at home. A simple paste of sugar, water, and boric acid could do the trick. Check out a few more of these ideas here.

What's The Most Effective Cockroach Poison?
Lots of people report success in fighting cockroaches with a gel bait. This kind doesn't leave an overwhelming cloud of toxic chemicals in your home. Cockroaches seem fond of the taste, and the effect is multi-fold: the pests eat the poison, take some to share with the family, and pass it in their droppings which, in turn, are consumed by other roaches.

The only drawback is that you have to be careful of where you place the gel. While not really toxic to pets and humans, you still don't want any members of your family getting their 'paws' into the sweet roach-killer.

What If Nothing Is Working?
Try to be patient and hang in there as best as you can. Cockroach infestations can be difficult to remove. You might spot only two or three roaches, but that probably means there are 20 or 30 hiding where you can't see them. It's going to take some time to put a dent in their numbers.

This blog highlights a few good points and disclaimers when it comes to using a variety of products at home. You can't stop at just one! What worked for one case may not be effective for you.


It helps to familiarize yourself with a few fun facts about cockroaches so that you'll have a better idea of what approach to take. Even better, contact a professional pest control service like Fox Pest Control to get a customised cockroach-removal plan.

2. Get A Monthly Massage. 

Another beauty strategy you can implement to ensure that you look your best is getting a monthly massage. This technique will help improve your appearance in several ways. First, massages promote more youthful looking skin by improving blood flow. They also enhance metabolism and thereby contribute to the weight loss/weight management process. Also note that massages help you attain a wide range of health benefits, some of which include better sleep and improved functioning of the respiratory system. When you start looking for the ideal massage therapist, make sure that she or he has extensive industry experience as well as all of the required licenses. 

3. Have A Professional Facial.

While taking care of your skin at home is immensely important, it's also a good idea to let the professionals assist you with the skin maintenance process. One of the simplest and most effective ways to keep your skin in great condition is by having a professional facial. Facials can help you look more beautiful in many ways. For example, they can help decrease the signs of aging or reduce the appearance of acne.

If you're serious about looking your very best, now is the time to implement beauty strategies that will help you realize the goal. Some of the strategies that can work wonders for you include trying a new hair style, getting a monthly massage, and having a professional facial!

Why Has Your Tap Started To Drip?

If you have a tap in your home that is dripping it can be really irritating. A dripping tap is also the cause of a significant waste of water. It can sometimes be tempting to put off dealing with the issue of a dripping tap, but that it not a good idea. The problem is not going to solve itself. The longer you leave it, the more water you are wasting.

You may want to contact a plumber in Mosman about the problem. They can put their experience to use fixing it for you. If you want to have a go at fixing the problem yourself first we have put together some advice that you may find useful. This advice applies to traditional style taps, where the problem is usually caused by worn washers. If your taps are lever style you should check out this advice on how to change the cartridge; this should help put an end to the dripping.

Make sure that the water supply is switched off

Before you start to work on the tap that is causing the problem you should make sure that the water is switched off. You can do this either by finding the main stop valve for the house and turning off the supply at this point, or by switching the supply off at the isolation valve for the tap. There may be a little water left in the pipe, so it's a good idea to switch on the tap, to get rid of this water, before you start.

Uncovering the screw to dismantle the tap

In order to release th washers you need to turn the screw which enables the tap to be taken apart. If you remove the cap on the top of the tap and you should expose the screw. Before you start to release the screw make sure that the plug is in the sink, so that there is no danger of anything falling down the plug hole.

Using a spanner to release the spindle

Once the plug hole is covered you should unscrew the nut which holds the spindle in place. While you are doing this it's a good idea to keep hold of the spout of the tap so that it does not turn and make the job more difficult. There are two washers on the spindle and it's possible that one or both could be worn. You need to find a match for the washers at the store, and then go about replacing them.

Making sure the drip is fixed

Once you have replaced the washers you need to carefully put the tap back together again. Then it's just a case of switching the water supply back on and turning on the tap to see if the problem is resolved.

In most cases, you should find that replacing the washers stops the drip. If the problem persists then you should contact a professional plumber in order to identify the cause.

Vitamin C And Its Beauty Benefits


We all know that Vitamin C is good for our health as it protects our immune system and helps us fight diseases but did you know that Vitamin C is also loaded with beauty benefits?

Vitamin C’s benefits extend to more than just our body health, it is also loaded with other benefits that will help us look good.


Skin Anti-Aging

Vitamin C helps the body in attaining full production of collagen- a protein that keeps the skin and other organs together, the element that is responsible for our skin’s elasticity and strength, thus, a regular intake of vitamin C equates to a younger and brighter-looking skin.

Vitamin C also helps in the creation of ligaments and scar tissue by reducing the rate of free radicals, thereby slowing the aging process and reduces the visibility of wrinkles, skin dryness and fine lines.

Benefits for Nails

The benefit of Vitamin C doesn’t stop there as the same effect extends to your nails. It helps strengthens the connective tissues that fortifies the nail bed and helps our nail to grow faster. It also prevents hang nails by assisting collagen formation.

Hair health

Vitamin C plays a pivotal role in growing and strengthening our hair as it helps in absorbing Iron – an element that keeps our hair strong and healthy. And as mentioned earlier, it also help absorb collagen that stimulates the hair follicles which helps your hair grow faster.

In achieving the above benefits, an optimum level of Vitamin C is needed. Bewell-C (Sodium Ascorbate) contains all the vitamin C your body needs minus the acidity.  Bewell-C (Sodium Ascorbate) is a non-acidic Vitamin C supplement that is rapidly gaining popularity among the public as a high quality and effective brand. Bewell-C is the next generation vitamin C that provides all the benefits of vitamin C without the risk of hyperacidity.

For those who need both Vitamin C and Calcium, Bewell-C plus calcium is also available in the market. Just like Bewell-C, this product also uses non-acidic vitamin C paired with organic calcium fortified with Vitamin D for stronger bones and teeth.

Bewell-C and Bewell-C Plus Calcium is available in all leading drugstores nationwide and on Lazada.com.ph Online Shopping: http://www.lazada.com.ph/bewell-nutraceuticals-corporation/. For more updates, follow their FB: https://www.facebook.com/bewellcsodiumascorbate.

Converse and Millie Bobby Brown Dive Into Film




Converse debuts the Forever Chuck Scene videos with breakout actress, exploring classic film scenes that made Chuck Taylor iconic


In celebration of the daring spirit of youth, Converse debuts the Forever Chuck, a digital and social media series exploring three core cultural scenes that made the Chuck Taylor iconic: film and TV, LA culture and style and the world of Fashion, high and low.

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Karim Huu Do, the Forever Chuck series kicks off with “Why Iconic Characters Wear Chucks” celebrating the types of unique characters that have made Chuck Taylor an iconic symbol on-screen.

Actress Millie Bobby Brown is the host of this episode, exploring why the coolest characters in film wear Chucks, and what Chucks say about the characters who wear them – meeting legendary stylist Stephanie Collie (whose credits include Peaky Blinders & various feature films) to get her expert opinion. Brown was most recently nominated for a People’s Choice Award and
Screen Actors Guild Award on behalf of her performance in the critically acclaimed Netflix sensation "Stranger Things."


 “The Chuck Taylor has remained a symbol for underdogs, rebels and teen heroes – the characters we love and identify most with - in films and television,” said Julien Cahn, Chief Marketing Officer at Converse. “By pairing some of the most memorable scenes of the past with rising stars of today, we celebrate Chuck Taylor’s legacy and pay homage to its place within youth culture - both on and off screen.” 
All of the films within the Forever Chuck series will highlight the confident and daring spirit of youth, a spirit that has defined Chuck Taylor loyalists in the past, present and future.
