Making sure that you do not leave anything behind and have set everything before leaving on a holiday is what a travel checklist is for and with this new technology era, you do not need to write everything on 2 or 3 sheets of paper or surf on the internet looking for tips on what to bring and what to remember before going on a holiday. On these days, you can make use of widgets! Widgets are commonly used now a day as these are very accessible on mobile phones as well as on the computer. Widgets are very easy to use; in fact I have here a Travel Widget from Mondial Assistance which you can try for free, just to see how you get on with it. Tell you, it is easy to use and since I have tried it myself, I can assure you that this widget and website is safe to use!
There are 2 things on how you can try the My Travel Checklist, you can either download the widget or just try it on their website by clicking the box called access my travel checklist, located below the video tutorial. Then you can start making your very own custom packing list by answering the questions provided and adding up some details or items at the end of each checklist category. You can save it, modify later, send it on an email or print it once you are done and have it on hand ready for checking procedures. Anyway, like I said this widget is safe to use and free of charge, so you might try it as well!
Below is a sample photo of my travel Checklist Widget. I have taken this when I tried the said widget and find it fun and very easy to use.

I am sure that you have heard about ING Direct but have you heard about the good benefits you will enjoy if you join in with ING Direct Savings Account? Well, I am not an expert on this but I joined in recently and found some wonderful benefits on ING Savings Accounts. First, it only takes 10 minutes or so to open an account and unbelievably you can open one for £1. Second, it gives an easy access to your money which includes bonuses, no charges withdrawals, no minimum and maximum monthly deposits and many more. Third, it has an excellent customer service and finally the fourth one is that the website is safe and secure. I would say that this savings account is a big help for people like me who wants to save despite the current economic situation. Now I do not want to discuss further with what is happening with the current economic state, so here is another interesting thing from ING Direct.
The ING Direct Widget:
I have attached with this post a cleaver widget from ING Direct Savings. This will help you find out and compare the average household saving levels for each region/county. Using this widget is so easy, no need to download, just click on your region/county, this will then show you the average saving total of your region/county. If you want to compare it with other regions, you can do it by clicking the add box to add it on a table on the left corner of the widget and make your very own comparison table. Good Luck!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TracFone. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have to be honest that budgeting is the main reason why my family has switch to TracFone! My husband and I have been on contract mobile for about 6 years and our daughter is on pay as you go, however due to the recession I have been off work and one of the billing that has to be cut down is the mobile phone, so we decided to joined this TraFone no contract, no credit checks, no activation charges or cancellation fees mobile phone called TracFone and it was one of the best decision we made this year! I was really surprised that it cost half the price as what we used to pay on a contract and my daughter love the fact that she got a lot of free txt and calls to get in touch with her friends, not to mention the lovely LG100c candy bar mobile phone she got, was so worth it! Anyway, they got some other choices of mobile phones, and it is all from leading manufacturers like Nokia, Samsung, Kyocera, LG and Motorola. I was actually surprised that their mobile phones are very affordable yet they got So many features like camera/video recorder, web access, app capabilities, mp3 player, and full QWERTY keyboard, and believe me you could get one for $29.99! Well if you want simple phones, like my husband, you could get a phone with simple needs, calling and texting capabilities for under $10.00. The cleaver thing about TracFone is that with their monthly plans, you can pay as you go online or with cards available at thousands of retail stores across the country. They also got a 1 year service cars, which is what me and my family is using, and I think it gives us much more because I am receiving double minutes for the life of my TracFone, and 800 minutes for only $119 without any hidden charges!
I would personally recommend TracFone if you wish to save on mobile phone expenses and I never had a problem with reception and coverage! Well, you can watch this video of Real TracFone customers and tell me what you think? All the best!

I have here some information on how to spot sugars on the labels; all you have to do it look out for these:
• The following are sugars- glucose, dextrose, maltose, fructose, hydrolysed starch.
• Invert sugar or syrup, honey, raw sugar, brown sugar, muscavado, and concentrated fruit juices are all sugars.
• Fruit juices too contain sugars, which can cause decay, so always dilute this with a lot of water and keep to mealtime.
• Maltrodextrin by the way is not sugar but can cause decay.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TRESemmé. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have been using TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo for over a year now and I love the fact that this product works brilliant on my hair! I do not use it on daily basis as I do shower frequently, however I always got this on my room as I find it very useful on odd times when I need to freshen up my hair quickly before going out on a rush, meeting friends or relatives. A total look saver! However just a piece of advice, always remember to follow instructions to get the best result! If you want you can try it using these easy steps, just a sort of tips.
Here is how to do it:
• Shake the can really well before use
• Lift a section of your hair and spray lightly right on your scalp or roots of your hair
• Then spray in short burst, holding 8-12 inches from your head ( do not spray it all over your head like a hairspray as you will end looking like you got a talc powder on your head)
• Leave it for 1-2 minutes
• Then work it up using your fingertips to brush and distribute the product evenly and style your hair.
If clogging occurs, all you have to do is remove the nozzle and rinse the nozzle under warm water and reattach after. Then, it should work properly!
Just to give you an idea of what TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo is, if you have not use this before. This shampoo is uniquely formulated which removes greasiness and odor to your hair. I think one main ingredient use is a citrus extract which explains the lovely clean smell. It instantly cools the head and it is like having a hair wash without using a drop of water. Perfect when you are in a rush! Probably the why it is the Top Hair Products for School, it really is great!
I prefer to use TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo as it works really well with my long wavy hair but there are some other choices to choose from and you might as well check these out too:
• Strengthening Dry Shampoo: The formula, with B12 vitamins and keratin, helps strengthen hair and leaves it full of healthy body.
• Volumizing Dry Shampoo: The formula, with mineral clay and citrus, removes oil while injecting hair with salon-gorgeous volume.
• Smoothing Dry Shampoo: The formula, with Vitamin H & Silk Proteins, refreshes your straight style by removing excess oil, impurities and odor to ensure your smooth look lasts.
• Moisturizing Waterless Foam Shampoo: The formula, with Witch Hazel, Citrus, and Aloe Vera, refreshes your hair by removing excess oil, impurities and odor while moisturizing hair.

The FSA suggests babies under six months old should have less than 1 gram of salt a day and those aged seven to 12 months one gram a day. But since salt is already present in our daily food, even in milk, it is so hard to know how much has our child has eaten in a day, so it is just best to avoid it if possible.
Actually, the whole family will benefit if you gradually reduce the amount of salt in your cooking. Also you should keep salt off the table and limit the amount of salty food like crisp, savoury snacks, and some mixes that your child has.

Anyway is some information about mumps, I learned some of this from the nurse who gave my little girl the MMR shots and some from the National health services website.
Mumps is an airborne virus which can lead to fever, headache, and painful, swollen glands in the face, neck and jaws. It can result in permanent deafness, viral meningitis (swelling of the lining of the brain) and encephalitis. Rarely this can also cause painful swelling of the testicles in males and the ovaries in females. This said virus usually last about 7 to 10 days.
Now how does this virus spread?
Mumps is an airborne virus and can be spread by:
• an infected person coughing or sneezing and releasing tiny droplets of contaminated saliva, which can then be breathed in by another person
• an infected person touching their nose or mouth, then transferring the virus onto an object, such as a door handle, or work surface; if someone else then touches the object shortly afterwards, they can transfer the virus into their respiratory tract
• sharing utensils, such as cups, cutlery or plates with an infected person
So if you think you or your child is infected with mumps, do see a doctor, so you’ll be given the proper treatment.

I have been doing a lot of research before and found some useful information on preventing diaper rash on my little one. These are the things that will help prevent diaper or nappy rash on babies:
By changing the diaper as soon as you can when it becomes wet or soiled. By cleaning the whole diaper area thoroughly. Wipe the baby from front to back. Use a mild soap with plain water or a gentle baby wipes. Make sure that you rinse the soap and pat dry before placing a new baby diaper on your baby. It is also best to lay your baby in a towel and leave the diaper off for as long and as often as you can to let fresh air get to the skin.
Sometime rashes can lead into infection, so it is somehow important that you should keep your baby dry and clean at all time.

• Lastly, it is best not to keep shoes for the best, as your child may outgrow these without proper wear.

If you think you are saving with your mobile plan today, well think again! I have just recently spoken with a group of mom’s about mobile phone deals and the best one that I heard so far was this Straight talk no contract mobile phone plan. It has got everything you need just like when you are on a contract plan! Two of them got this Straight Talk “All You Need Plan”. For $30 a month, they told me it has 1,000 minutes worth of calls and 1,000 minutes text messages and 30MB free web data, which is not bad for a monthly allocation. I was very keen on this so when I got home today I had a look at the website and saw an even amazing deal from Straight Talk, an unlimited service for just $45 a month. Unlimited calls, txt and internet, which means you not only call a friend but you can call all your friends with your unlimited calls!
This is actually the cheapest unlimited plan I have seen and the phones are not bad too! Load of choices from trusted brands such as Motorola, Nokia, Samsung, LG and Kyocera. Most of them are smart phones and some are touch screen phones which already got features like camera, video recording, music player, navigation system, blue-tooth, and wifi connection. I was even surprised to see a phone there for $10! It is however reconditioned, but I thought of getting one for my daughter. Told her about it, she smiled and said “Can I have the unlimited one? So I replied “mom knows best, you can have the All You Need Plan of $30 a month! Still, she is very excited about it.
I have here a testimonial video of Straight Talk real customers, I got this from YouTube and I think this will give you an idea of what you to expect if you switch to Straight Talk.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Net10. All opinions are 100% mine.
I was browsing online looking for a good deal business phone and I found this NET10 and its very interesting phone package. I am not sure if you already knew this but this NET10 unlimited plan sound like a really good deal! Well here is what I found out, with their unlimited plan of $50 a month, you will get an unlimited text, unlimited calls, internet surfing, emails, 411, nationwide coverage and not to mention the excellent reception you will get when you are on the phone.
Well, that was one of my friend’s feedbacks about the NET10 line connectivity reception, although she only uses her phone for personal use, she was very pleased with it! She had a Full QWERTY keyboard mobile but there is a lot of choices if you do not like one of these Qwerty mobile phone and they are all from a trusted mobile phone company like Samsung, Nokia, LG and Motorola. I noticed she uses a lot of mobile internet on it, mainly for facebook and twitter and it has a good mobile internet speed, which has given me a brilliant idea that this is very suitable for my husband as a business phone, as he and his brother has this small business that requires a lot of travel and could really make use of the unlimited thing.
I would say this is one those cleaver ways of saving money, and the best thing about NET10 is that it is a no contract mobile phone service, so you will not be charge for anything at all if you wish to downgrade into a lower monthly plan, or switch to a pay as you go. No need to fill up loads of forms when you join in, just buy your desired NET10 phone and have it activated, then register and get a refill and you can start using it start using it, more like a pay as you go, but a lot better when it comes to services. Anyway, you can get more information on this see the Light video as well as this a really cute NET10 commercial from NET10 to brighten up your day!
Here is a testimonial video of a real NET10 customer :

Different fruit and vegetables contains different vitamins and minerals, so the wider range your toddler eats the better. But do not worry if your child will only eat one or two types. He or she will learn to like them by having small taste frequently.

A good friend of mine has just got back from a holiday in Thailand and she was telling me about how wonderful her experience was on the entire holiday. It was her first time to visit Thailand and I was glad that she had such a wonderful time as I did recommend Thailand to her as one of Asia’s best travel destination! I have been there 3 years ago with my family and I just love everything about Thailand, from the glorious weather, beautiful people, stunning scenery and temples, like The Grand Palace and the Temple of Wat Phra Kaeo to the tasty Thai cuisine. Everything is just worth coming back!
Anyway, this friend of mine has mentioned something that I missed when I was last there, the tour to Thailand’s famous silk house! I heard so much about it from my friend that on my next holiday in a couple of months I intend to go there with my family. Did all my research as of where to go, what to do, and found this lovely place to stay called The VIE Hotel Bangkok. The hotel itself looks superb and currently has a remarkable package deal which includes a tour to the famous Jim Thompson House - the Thai silk house in Bangkok.
The package includes a silky consultant, grand breakfast at VIE Wine and Grill, complementary day pass for the sky train, a lovely deluxe room and deluxe suit accommodation with 2 garments per day laundry or dry cleaning service and best of all, 2 complementary luxurious VIE silky cushion covers! Aside from this, they are also giving away discounts on laundry, dry cleaning and on the food and beverages services! The hotel itself has free wifi Internet access at the VIE lounge but can also get this in the hotel room from just 250 Baht each day. This package has actually caught my attention and I think it is the best deal they have so far! So, if this has got your interest too, please visit the VIE Hotel website.

I started to suffer from hay fever about 4 years ago and it usually gets worst around spring and summertime when the spores and pollen level is high which will then give me a flu-like symptoms cause by allergic reaction. I hate the hay fever, and knowing that it cannot be cured completely; I just make sure that I got the right treatment for the symptoms! Now, over the years I have tried different brands of antihistamine products and I seem to like this Wal-Itin non-drowsy allergy tablet from Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products. Why? Well, it is due to the following reasons:
• It does not make me drowsy.
• It is a lot cheaper than the other national brands, yet works just the same.
• I get 3x more tablets quantity for the same amount paid on other brands.
• It is made by the trusted Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products.
