Guilt-Free Toy Shopping Tips

I have always been a power shopper:

Everything from grocery to bread to clothes to accessories, I have always stayed firm on my philosophy of power shopping. Friends and family used to envy the way I used to effectively shop at malls and departmental stores. My homework was always done. Gay window shopping was never my thing!

Until I had my twins!

Everything I thought about power shopping including my prim and proper routine went with the wind and I found myself in a pathetic position when I could not even draw a list of the things that I would want in the kitchen the following week!

Toy shopping is a herculean thing:

At least I found it to be quite challenging. I have grown up in a house with literally no children. I was the only child of my parents and I don’t even remember remotely playing with toys. I used to love my books and mom and dad proudly even announce to everyone who cares to listen to them what kind of brilliant child I was!

The most popular toys for 4 year old girls, in my opinion, is a doll. Now I know the negative controversy surrounding the Barbie dolls et al. but let me tell you that I have no problem whatsoever in giving them a Barbie to play with if they are red to play with and stay quiet for sometime till I manage to finish the cooking and the laundry.

Dollhouses are a good option too!

Dollhouses were never on my wish list because we have space restraints and if you have a garden or a backyard, you can check to see if it works for you. Dollhouses are extremely informative in nature and they also are known to be entertaining. What toys have you been buying and have your children had their first dolls yet?…

The Truth About Weight Loss Shopping Methods

I have always been overweight:

From the time I was seven or eight, I remember being quite overweight. It was unusually very conspicuous because my parents and my siblings, all six of them were either too small built or normally built and for my age, I was definitely on the heavier side.

One explanation that mom and dad had was that my dad’s grandmother was very big in size and that is how the gene had jumped. I felt it was unfair to have got such a bad gene. But honestly, till I had grown up like till puberty, weight and the size didn’t matter so much only except sometimes in the swimming class or the gymnast periods when I would look sucking bad in my leotards. But still, it was okay because my friends were not mean!
The problem began after puberty:

I wanted to pull down right after my fourteenth birthday and I went to the gym regularly and I did see a lot of difference. I started eating healthy and went to spas regularly to maintain my skin even while I exercised and ate really good diet food. By the time I was eighteen, I had lost all of the extra fats and I was proud of y curves and at the right place.

Diets don’t work in isolation:

This is one thing I want everyone to take home with them. Diets can expedite weight loss but they are not the last thing. One needs to integrate an active lifestyle and a great psyche and most important of it all is that one must believe in what they are up to. Diets have their own limitations and they stop working out for anybody the moment they are overused. Shopping for diets on the internet is not a good idea at all.
