Busy women, like men, need their own quiet escape from this very busy world. So the stylish backyard haven known as the "she shed" is becoming popular. She shed, as space designed by women, provides peace and privacy where they can escape from daily grind.

Now, if I were to build or have my own personal space in our home, these are my top 5 she shed.

Which just show that women aren't so different from men when it comes to shed feature because about the same percentage of men also declare multiple TVs are important in their man cave, based on a man cave study.

Having your own personal space as a woman is really essential, As I have said, it's your escape from your daily works where you can be just lazy watching your favorite TV series, reading books, doing crafts, or just having your nail polish.

Ladies, what are your she shed ideas?

Ultra High Performance Lunch Pack/Bag

When I purchased a new stainless lunch box, I didn't know how big it was. It doesn't fit my son's lunch bag. The problem pa it should be carry just flat otherwise the food inside will mix with each other and worst spill. Honestly, I can not recommend that stainless lunch box for kids. So Daddy and I are using it for our packed lunch to work.

However, as I have mentioned, that stainless lunch box is so big. I had difficulty looking for a lunch bag. Naikot ko na yata lahat ng pwedeng mabilhan sa mall still bigo ako. Then the search was over when, luckily, I found this Ultra High Performance Lunch Pack from Shopee at 280.00 pesos only.

This Ultra High Performance Lunch Pack/Bag is highly recommended. Hope it will be available soon here in Philippines.

3 Often Forgotten Household Cleaning Jobs You Shouldn't Overlook

Keeping a clean home is important for most people, but there are certain areas we are likely to overlook. For example, the toothbrush holder is actually the germiest spot in the bathroom, but many people rarely clean it. Here is a list of three common places that we often forget to clean, and some handy tips for tackling these areas.

Toothbrush Holders

3 Often Forgotten Household Cleaning Jobs You Shouldn't Overlook, home, home and living, household cleaning jobs, cleaning, home cleaning, home tips,
Image via Flickr by tinafranklindg

As mentioned above, the toothbrush holder is the place in your bathroom that harbors the most germs. A 2011 NSF International study found that the toothbrush holder is also one of the most bacteria-filled places in your entire house. Toothbrush holders often collect residue that contains bacteria, viruses, and coliforms like salmonella that can cause serious illness.

To clean your toothbrush holder, soak it in hot soapy water to loosen the residue. After ten minutes, scrub it thoroughly, using a fine brush to fit into any tight spaces. Once it is fully clean, sterilize it by running it through the dishwasher, or let it soak in a 1:10 bleach and water solution for 30 minutes.

The toothbrush holder should be cleaned and sanitized every week or so. This might seem excessive but it is really very simple to incorporate this task into your usual bathroom cleaning schedule.

Heating and Air Conditioning Ducts

Other parts of the home that collect a lot of dirt and grime are the heating and air conditioning ducts. It is important to schedule a regular professional duct cleaning to remove debris and contaminants. 

If you neglect the air ducts for too long, debris will build up and force your HVAC system to work harder, decreasing its expected lifespan. The HVAC system may work less efficiently, which increases your energy bills. In addition, the buildup of contaminants can exacerbate allergies and asthma.

With an HVAC duct cleaning, you hire a professional to service your heating and air conditioning system, which includes cleaning the supply and return air ducts, the heat exchangers, the cooling coils, the drip pans, and the fans. The National Duct Cleaning Association recommends scheduling a professional duct cleaning every 2 years.

Kitchen and Bathroom Doors

We open and close doors frequently, but many of us don't clean them as much as we should. As you know, doors and doorknobs pick up a lot of dirt, grease, and fingerprints. In addition, doorknobs collect bacteria and viruses, which can spread illnesses.

To clean the door itself, wipe it down with a wet, soapy cloth, a sponge, or a magic eraser to remove stains and dirt. With doorknobs, use a disinfectant spray. To avoid harsh chemicals, you can buy an eco-friendly brand or make your own disinfectant spray with vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, and water.

Once you have your spray handy, spritz the entire doorknob and wipe it dry with a cloth or towel. Clean your doorknobs regularly, especially on kitchen and bathroom doors.

These are just a few areas of your home that are easy to overlook but really should be cleaned regularly. Keeping these areas clean will help make your house a cleaner and healthier environment for you and your family.

The Bubee Lunch Jars for School Baon

My little boy is growing so fast. Sa ayaw at sa gusto ko he will have his own choices, decisions and he will gain his independence.

Actually, at 8 years old, he's starting to decide what clothes and shoes to wear. Now, he even decide what will be his baon for school. Kaya naman kung dati I can just decide on my own, ngayon hindi na pwede. Dapat yun choice nya but of course I won't allow him to eat junk food. 

He used to appreciate the bento baon I am making. Now, he wants very simple baon. Mabuti na lang I didn't buy na bento tools, at mabuti talaga napigilan ko sarili kong maghoard pa, haha.

It's an advantage for me because doing bento baon with designs is not a simple task. Simplehan na lang natin sabi nga. So, I just invest in lunch boxes na lang like the Yumbox Mini and Panino, and the leak-proof partition lunch box I bought online. And this is the newest addition to our lunch box.

The Bubee Lunch Jar!

Each set of Bubee Lunch Jar includes two jars and a carrying pouch.

Bubee Lunch Jar is made of thick, food-grade stainless steel which is double layered. So it keeps cold foods cold and hot foods hot for up to 5 hours!

The lid is thick too. Actually, compared to other stainless lunch boxes or jars, Bubee Lunch Jar is heavier, which is a good indication of being of high quality.

I am already using the Bubee Lunch Jar so it is safe to say that I highly recommend this. Aside from it's quality, it's easier to prepare the baon in here. Why? Kasi you can just put in the rice then top it with the ulam like this.

Tumatagal bang mainit yun sabaw? The answer is yes. Although, it's not too hot but what I like it prevents meals from being cold (with oil solidifying) like when you store your lunch bag in an air-conditioned room. It is safe to say that it keeps the food warm. Pwede din daw sa cold baon but I haven't tried it yet.

Also just a warning lang, don't close it too tight. It will be very difficult to open it. 

That's the Bubee Lunch Jar where we enjoy our lunch baon. Planning to buy one more set for Daddy and me. 

By the way, please follow me on Instagram: @mommymaye and @momayebaondiary, for some baon ideas. See yah!

6 Ways to Make Your Home More Welcoming to Guests

When entertaining guests, you want to make sure they feel welcome in your home. For happy houseguests, all it takes is some tidying and forethought to create a comfortable space for visitors.

Provide a Comfortable Bed

home, decluterring. home and living, bed,

Clean, coordinated bed linens are essential to make your guests feel comfortable in their rooms. Provide an extra blanket tucked away in a closet or drawer in case they need it.

Invest in a bed rather than simply using a sofa bed or mattress pad. Consider two sets of pillows — one firm and one soft — to allow your guests to choose their favorites.


If your guest room is used as storage when you don't have anyone staying with you, make space for guests before they arrive. You'll want to provide a writing surface, such as a desk, as well as an empty drawer and some closet space for your visitors to use. 

In addition to decluttering your guest room, you should clean up common areas around your house that your guests will be using. Tidy up the kitchen, the living room, and the bathrooms. A deep clean is unnecessary; you want your guests to feel comfortable in your home, and a too-clean house may make visitors feel uneasy.

Allow Guests to Enjoy Their Ideal Room Temperature

A ductless air conditioner can cool a single room, a feature which makes it great for your guest room. Guests can set their own ideal temperature with mini-split units. Installing ductless mini-split air conditioning can easily be done within one day, which means you don't have to worry about setting aside too much time for installation before your guests arrive.

Anticipate the Needs of Your Guests

Try to imagine what your guests may require during their stay. If they will be with you for an extended length of time, provide a robe and slippers. Think like a hotel and put together a small basket of lotion, soap, shampoo, and a razor, along with some clean towels. If your guests are unfamiliar with the area, consider giving them a guidebook of area attractions. 

Think About Breakfast

Make breakfast items easy to find, or put them out for your guests. If you won't be joining your guests for breakfast, provide fresh fruit and pastries so that they can help themselves. Set up a coffee station complete with a few mugs, sugar, and cream. You could also provide a few types of coffee or some flavored syrups.

Add Finishing Touches

Small details make guests feel welcome. Put a clock and a reading light by the bed and a nightlight for the bedroom and bathroom. Write down the Wi-Fi password on a note card and leave it in the room. Fresh flowers or a candle makes a nice touch. A bottle of water and a few snacks can put hungry guests at ease when they are up later or earlier than their hosts.

Tidying up and thinking of what your guests may need will create a comfortable space for your visitors. By making sure your guests have the essentials they need, such as breakfast items or instructions for setting the temperature in their rooms, you can make their stay less stressful for both of you. A few extra touches will show visitors how much you care about their comfort.

Elysium Health Helps Support Cellular Health

In partnership with Elysium Health

Many people have the goal of living a healthier lifestyle. Eating healthier and exercising more are the two most common ways to achieve that. However, certain supplements can improve your well-being even further.

Elysium Health is a health company with the goal of translating scientific and technological advancements in clinically-validated health products that work. Elysium Health was co-founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente, who also works as the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. He has conducted significant research on the genetic and molecular causes of aging during his long career.

Basis, cellular health, Elysium Health, health, personal care, personal health, supplement

Elysium Health's first supplement is Basis. It is based on over two decades of prior research. Basis is made up of two ingredients, pterostilbene and nicotinamide riboside. The combination of these two elements is proven to increase and sustain levels of NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is a  coenzyme that is essential to many of our cellular functions like DNA protection, energy creation, and circadian rhythms. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline and those functions can break down.

In 2016, Elysium Health put Basis through a clinical trial. This study demonstrated that Basis increased levels of NAD+ in humans by an average of 40 percent over a period of time and sustained those levels with continued regular supplement intake.

The leadership team at Elysium Health seeks to serve the broader health community. Eric Marcotulli directs the vision as the CEO of the company. Before becoming the CEO, he worked at Sequoia Capital as its youngest partner to lead growth investing in mobile technologies. Eric earned his BA from Princeton University and his MBA from Harvard Business School. Dan Alminana works as the COO of the company, in charge of the operational and financial elements of Elysium Health, having previously worked in venture capital at JP Morgan Securities, where he launched and led its Silicon Valley venture capital coverage unit.

Purchasing Basis

Visit Elysium Health's website to purchase Basis. Each jar of Basis contains a month's worth of supplement. An individual jar of Basis costs $60. To lower that cost, you can buy Basis in a variety of monthly subscriptions. A regular month-to-month subscription costs $50 per month. Prepaying for a six-month subscription brings the monthly cost down to $45, and prepaying for a twelve-month subscription brings the cost down to $40 per month.

Basis is vegan, vegetarian, gluten- and nut- free, as well as free of any artificial colors and flavors. Thus, the Elyisum supplement allows you to stick to your dietary needs while taking it.

Matthew's 8th Birthday Simple Celebration

Time flies so fast! I have an eight-year old boy now.

Last month, Matthew turned 8. Unlike his seventh birthday when he had three celebrations (Read: Matthew Andrei's 7th Birthday Celebration At McDonald'sPart 1: Matthew Andrei's Babababababanana Party At SchoolPart 2: Matthew Andrei's Babababababanana Party At Home ), we chose to have his 8th birthday celebration a simple one.

Daddy woke up early to make this one.

diy party, simple celebration, birthday

When our little boy woke up, we surprised him with a little cake.

Actually, he didn't know that we will be having a small party for him. So it was a surprise celebration and look how happy he was seeing his cake from her Tita Rona.

Plus the food Daddy and I prepared.

And of course his visitors who traveled all the way from Nueva Ecija just to have this celebration extra special.

Can't believe we already have an eight-year old kid.

An eight-year old boy who doesn't ask for any celebration nor gift on his birthday, still he received a toy from his Tito.

To this little boy who may sometimes be makulit, but always the source of our joy, happy 8th birthday. May you grow to be a man of honesty, honor, and kindness, and a man of God. We love you so much!
