“Comparison is the thief of joy.” – Theodore Roosevelt
We’ve heard that quote numerous times yet we continue to compare ourselves to others. Why is that?
For me, when I compare my life to someone else’s life, it’s because I think they have it better than me or they have something that I want. Due to social media (Facebook & Instagram), I find myself comparing myself to others more often. Sometimes I feel like I’m missing out on something because I saw it on Instagram! It leads to greater dissatisfaction in my own life even though my life is pretty good. It’s better than just good, it’s amazing. I don’t say it’s amazing because everything is perfect but I know that I am very blessed. But I need to remind myself of this daily and look at what I do have instead of what I don’t have. So what’s a girl to do in order to have joy in her life? Here’s what helps me. View Post
If you’re a fan of Ju-Ju-Be bags like I am, then you know that Rosy Posy will be releasing on May 30th. It’s a collaboration between Ju-Ju-Be and Baby Tula and was announced back on April 22nd. On April 23rd, at Ju-Ju-Beach, guest were given a sneak peak of the Rosy Posy collection! Rosy Posy comes on an oatmeal background with beautiful pink, blue, and red flowers. The floral print is amazing! In my opinion, the background has a slight sage green tint to it. I like to call it a light creamy pistachio color! The collection consists of the following bag styles pictured below.
Be Quick, Be Set, Be Ready, Be Charged, Be Light, Super Be, BFF, Change Pad, Fuel Cell, Be Right Back, Itty Bitty Be, Mini Be, Messenger Strap, Be Neat, Be Spendy, Be Classy, Be Rich, Paci Pod (Source)
Skincare is always a topic of interest within my circle of friends. It’s one of the things we all notice if someone’s skin looks younger, healthier, or better. Taking care of my skin has been something that I’ve made a conscious effort to keep up with ever since I was in college. I don’t have sensitive skin so I’m able to try out different products without any issues. But I would always come back to Korean skin care products. It’s not just because I am Korean but I think they really have some innovative products!

Death is a natural part of life and in the event that someone in your life passes away, you and your family will attend a funeral. It is also an essential part of funeral arrangements for you to look into getting insurance that will cover you and your family in case anything was to happen to you. Through sites like www.moneyexpert.com, you’ll be able to find out more regarding life insurance, just so you and the family don’t have to struggle when it comes to financing the funeral. As adults, we know what to expect at one but for children, it is a whole new territory. When A was about 2 years old, my maternal grandmother passed away and we attended the funeral. We didn’t really explain anything about death to A at that time because she was too young and didn’t really understand what was going on.
However, about two weeks ago, my father-in-law passed away. He had been sick for over 10 years but it was still sudden and happened so quickly. We are still coping with the loss but as Christians, we take comfort in the fact that he is in heaven and that there is no more pain or suffering. (1 Corinthians 15:42-53)
As adults dealing with grief, we can surround ourselves with friends and other family members to find comfort and find the support we need during such a difficult time. We can send the family a sympathy gift (like the ones at https://www.gifttree.com/v3/sympathy/gift-baskets) to show them that we are thinking about them in this tough time. But what about children- especially young children? First of all, they don’t know what to expect at a funeral. Second, they might not even know how to express their emotions about the situation. Third, they will probably have a lot of questions.
