Have a very #KiplingHoliday!

Just one more week for Christmas and between the stress of buying the holiday gifts for friends and family, cooking and eating, and attending Christmas events, we sometimes don't enjoy the holidays to the fullest am I right?

This Christmas I have been really laid back.
Too laid back.
With a 15 month old you kind of need to be or you wont enjoy the holidays at all.
This Christmas I decided to do more of the online shopping and avoid the hassle of the crowded malls and my toddler crying because he does not stand being in the stroller.

Kipling USA has an amazing Kipling Holiday Catalog this season and I am so glad and honored they have chosen  me to inform all of my readers of their fabulous discount of $30 off of your $150 purchase of their holiday catalog.

I couldn't resist getting the Multiple on the go bag.
Ever since I had my baby, I just haven't been able to use any bag whatsoever and just went out with my wallet and used the Diaper bag as the only bag.
My wallet and cellphone can be at reach without having to get them inside my messy diaper bag!


How to make your baby and dog love each other

I remember it clearly.
The feeling of knowing that in a couple of months I would have my first human baby.
I say human cause I already had a baby...a furry one, and I loved him with all my heart.
I understand that not everyone sees their pet as their babies, but I do, and I also knew that like me, there were other.
If this is your case, read on.


Five secrets to look younger

We all want to look one can deny that.
We all want to look fresh, glowy and healthy.
Some say these "looks" come from within depending on how happy you really are.
I think is a combination of this PLUS a few simple tricks I have learned along the way.

1.Fuller Eyebrows

It is a proven fact that eyebrow hair can thin from aging just like scalp hair does. It is a result form years of plucking, rubbing or painting them with pencils and makeup.
Go dig some old photos of yourself when you were a teenager and there is a high chance you had fuller eyebrows and now you don't, either because you repeatedly plucked them because thinner eyebrows were "in" or because they naturally thinned out.
So, I think if you stop plucking them thin...and maybe let them grow fuller you will get a more youthful effect.

Homemade Facial Scrub-n-berries

I had been meaning to make this as fellow blogger Sara from Aqui which is one of my favorite blogs, not only cause she rocks but she also lives in Hawaii and wait, not only that, but she has so many exotic fruits growing in her backyard! (geez, who can blame me for being jealous huh?? :)
She posted a while ago a fruit scrub like this one. I was hesitant at first, since I had already tried it once a few years back and the scrub always ended watery and the sugar dissolving. Then another blogger saved the day and took the time to explain to me step by step! Thanks Amber!


Thanksgiving Ginger & Carrot Soup

Thanksgiving is just around the corner guys!!
Even though I have been living away from my family for almost 8 yrs now, I still cherish this holiday, since it brings me back to those times when my sister and I had to clean the house, and help mom cook the Thanksgiving dinner and have everything set for when the rest of the family arived.

On this holiday I could usually smell Christmas on the air...and the joy of having night of celebrations, board games and amazing comfort food.

I wanted to share a very delicious soup I learned to make a while back.
 I think it could be a great starter for your Thanksgiving dinner, plus it's super easy!!
