10th Year Blog Anniversary

Oh wow ... time really flies so fast. This blog of mine is 10 years already since January of 2017!!! This blog is also my 1st domain that I'm maintain since 2007 and that I consider as an achievement too.

Actually my very 1st blog was at Bravejournal that I started in 2005 but unfortunately they deleted my blog already how sad.. I don;t want to pay for a premium acct so I let it go.  So, I'm blogging for the last 12 years now and counting. I have quite a few of domain blogs that I'm keeping and even though I'm not blogging as often now, I still enjoy writing some articles and sharing my experiences too.

My very 1st post in this blog A SLICE OF LIFE.

Hooray.. here's to more blogging years!!!

Making The Living Room Fun

If you are on a budget but still want to change the look of the home, then consider starting with the living room. A general contractor can go over the details that you can change in the room so that it has a new look from the lighting to the flooring and walls. Start with the basic details, such as the painting or changing the flooring, before changing the furniture or adding new accessories. The windows should also be considered when looking at remodeling the living room as this is an area of the home where you want to have as much natural light as possible since you'll be spending the most time here.

If the living room is dingy and doesn't have a lot of color, a fresh coat of paint can do wonders. Add texture to the walls of the living room with ceiling medallions that are attached and painted over or by using a sponge to create a fun look to the walls. Once you have the color of the walls, you can start looking at the carpet or other types of flooring that you might want to have. Hardwood flooring is ideal if you want something that is easy to keep clean. There are laminate flooring options that give you the hardwood look without spending a lot of money. Go with a lighter color no matter what kind of floor you choose as this will create the illusion of a larger room.

Darker furniture sets the scene, such as black furniture or a dark brown, along with cushions that are light in color that will add depth to the room. Pillows with a graphic design can create a beautiful scene in the living room instead of using simple colors. Your living room might have a perfect plan where all of the furniture is in one place. Take a different approach by putting your furniture in a diagonal position in a corner or changing the angle of the coffee table or the end tables. Don't be afraid to make the living room a fun place to be during the day as this is where you'll share memories with friends and family.

Time to Try New Things

Wow, January of 2017 passed by so quickly. Spent my January with 2 trips out of town with my family. We went to Cebu in January 7 till the 12th but the weather is not that good as it is raining almost everyday. However, that doesn't stop us from exploring the province. After that, we went to Palawan, and it is heaven. The islands are breathtaking and the province is a gem.

 This year, I am planning to go travel again and explore our country more. This year, it's also a time to try new things, I have eaten crocodile meat for the first time and it tastes like chicken. I have not tried the zip line though as I was scared and my body is al little bit achy that time, oh well might try it next time.

There are also more things to explore and learn online. There are heaps of websites that are worth visiting and perusing. I have learned so many things from different blogs and sites. There are also online shops that help people shop for their things, Etsy, E-bay, Amazon and the likes are fave. For musical enthusiasts, http://www.guitarcenter.com/Snark/ can be helpful as well. Perusing the site can be worthwhile if you are in need of anything music related.

I also want to try my hand in baking, and hope that will push through in the coming months if time permits.
