Useful Tips For Traveling With Kids

>> May 26, 2017

Do you know that children under two years old can be granted free tickets by all airlines? So, why don’t you seize this opportunity to start a trip together with your family? If you are worrying about the inconvenience you may face when traveling with children, some tips below I draw from my own experience may be helpful.

1. Take a note of what you possibly need to use for your trip a few weeks before your departure. It includes the items you use every day or every week, especially babies’ clothes.

2. Make a good preparation of a cloth band so that you can carry your child pick-a-back or right in front of you. This helps reduce the amount of time you have to spend holding your child in your arms while moving, so you can do other things by yourself instead. Remember to choose the type of cloth band with waterproof liner.

3. Don’t forget to bring a small blanket or a piece of thin cloth with you to cover in case you breastfeed your baby on the plane or a crowded train. This may make you feel more comfortable because of your protected privacy. In addition, such item also makes your baby feel warmer.

4. Get ready to confront with the situation when your baby cries because he or she may suffer an earache. This is a result of the pressure change during the process of takeoff and landing. To solve this problem, you can breastfeed your baby or use baby bottles or rubber nipples at that time.


5. Get ready to cope with the weather

A simple advice is that children should be dressed comfortably depending on the terrain and weather. This helps them adapt better under any circumstance. With the availability of all the items, it will be totally blameworthy if you forget toddlers’ gloves, dress them in four-sized ski-suits that seem too large, or cover their feet with nothing on a beach with lurking sea urchins.


6. Make preparation for travel potty

It is really terrible to travel by planes and means of public transportation when you are participating in the potty training days. However, the best travel potty will make everything become easier.

With the compact design, you can fold travel potty down to save room for other items and put them in the bottom of the diaper bag or your car's trunk. Generally, travel potty is used for a short period and accompanied by a potty chair or potty seat.

7. Underwear and diapers

These items are a little delicate, so there are a few things you have to notice. It is necessary to bring enough such items and two extra backups for everyday use. 

In addition, before traveling with your children, you should consider how many diapers in a day your baby needs because you may not buy them at the destination. 


8. Cameras and digital cameras

These are also indispensable things for each trip to take photos. For example, you can take a photo of a parking spot at the airport, so you can find that place quickly and easily when you come back.

Some types of mobile phones are equipped with cameras with high resolution, so you can save room for other items in your suitcase instead of bringing with a camera.


9. Medicines

The first thing parents have to prepare for your children when traveling is drugs or pharmaceutical products for the emergency.
In addition to prescriptions, you should also bring with the first aid kit including bandages, painkillers, and antimicrobial lipids.

10. Cleaning solution

If you can’t spend 20 seconds washing your hands with soap and water, it is advised that you should bring cleaning solution. And one notable thing is that you have to read the instruction manual carefully before applying it to children.


11. Paper bags

Clean plastic bags are very useful because you can use them to contain leftovers, waste, dirty clothes as well as swimming costumes after a whole day of full joy at sea.

Family travel is supposed to be an exciting and important opportunity for parents to raise their children’s awareness of the world as well as gain more experiences. Therefore, it is really necessary for fathers and mothers to make a good preparation before traveling. 


12. Travel High chair

If you intend to go on holiday with children at the age between 6 months and around 3 years old, one of the important pieces of travel kit you should definitely bring with is a travel highchair. With the help of such tool, feeding children is not a difficult task anymore. Also, you won’t have to face the dirty floor every day because of your children’s naughtiness while eating.

Tips for Designing Your Home Office

>> May 22, 2017

Getting the design of your home office right is very important. The design is important for practical needs, so your office is a functional space that enhances your productivity. Having a pleasant area of your home to work can also help you to maintain motivation levels.

Here we will discuss some things which you should consider when designing the perfect home office for you.

Designing Your Home Office

Office Furniture

In most instances, the most important pieces of furniture in your office are the desk and the office chair. When choosing the desk, think about the type of work you complete on a day-to-day basis. For example, do you work predominantly on a computer or do you need a large workspace for design projects or multiple files and paperwork? Also, consider the space available in your home office. These two factors dictate the size and the style of the desk you choose.

Choosing the right office chair is equally important. If you are sitting comfortably, you are not going to be distracted by the pain in your joints, and this allows you to focus on the task at hand. Therefore, you should opt for an ergonomic office chair as these are adjustable and allow you to adopt a good position at your desk.

There is a wide choice of furniture available on the market in a variety of different styles. Therefore, it is possible to buy pieces that are both practical and stylish. If you are planning on bringing clients to your home office, then choosing pieces of office furniture that reflect the image you want to project is important.


Storage is another essential aspect of your design to consider. You must consider the amount of space you have available and the shape of the room. If space is limited, make the most of the wall space and consider multifunctional pieces of furniture. Irregularly shaped rooms are not necessarily problematic. Any alcoves are ideal for using as storage spaces by adding a small bookcase filing cabinet or shelves.

Before buying storage furniture for your office, think carefully about the amount and type of storage you need. While the drawers of the desk are sufficient for people who predominantly work on the computer and simply need space to store a few items of stationery; other people may need pieces of furniture that are specifically intended for storage, such as a large filing cabinet.


Lighting is important for two reasons. First, you need to see what you are doing easily without straining. Second, lighting in the room can impact on your mood and levels of motivation. For these reasons, you need to think carefully about the lighting in your work area. Also, there is evidence to suggest that lighting can impact on whether you feel motivated or fatigued. Blue and green lighting are both believed to impact positively on your ability to work.

The lighting you choose can serve both a practical purpose and act as a design element of the room. By adding unusual ceiling lights or trendy desk lamps, your lighting can serve the purpose of an interesting feature in the room.


If your office is visually pleasing, then you are more likely to want to spend time there. This aspect of the design comes down to your personal tastes. However, opting for a neutral color scheme can create a spacious feel in a room that is possibly one of the smaller rooms in your home. Neutral colors are also less distracting than bold or vivid color choices. You can create a homelier feel in your home office personalising the room with photographs or art prints. A bright print will add color to the room and act as a focal point while photographs will add a personal touch.

These are just some of the factors that you should consider when designing your home office. Other factors will depend on the type of work you do and the way in which you intend to use the room. Remember, making the room a practical space for your work is the main focus rather than creating a room that is simply pleasing to the eye.
