Camera filters are the way to be

This is just my opinion on this matter, but I do believe it to be a pretty well-thought-out one. I’m not somebody who takes photography, stock photography, or cell phone photography lightly. As a matter of fact, I take this stuff very seriously. This is more or less, for the most part, how I make my living. Is photography or at least sources of content creation that use photography. That’s what this is all about anyway. If you are using a platform, like the ones that I’m suggesting, then you will absolutely be the type of person who in One Way or Another depends on free photography. I’m talking free of charge. So, that can be from stock photography websites, or that can be your own photos that you’re taking yourself. Even though this can be debated as not being free, it is not the type of source that you actually have to pay to use, so that is how I’m defining free for the purpose of this article. By the way, I love stock photography websites in this day in age. They used to be a major headache, but it seems as though there are a lot of good ideas in that circle now, and a lot of the sites are very Progressive and they battled the challenges very successfully that other stock photography websites of the past have so seriously struggled with. Photography is a Fickle game, and I feel like photographers are becoming more and more aware that their trade is fading, even though photography is actually, probably, growing and importance, rather than fading. But, in my opinion, real photographers and Camera people will be moving into the types of technology that are less accessible, such as drones and other things like that,

My Favorite Time of the Day

My Favorite Time of the Day

Who does not love mornings? Mornings are there to remind us of how each and everyone of us is blessed. We may not have all the things in life, but what is most amazing is that mornings mean another day to live, another day to fulfill our duties, and another way of knowing that God loves us so much.

I love mornings because I get to see my children–Joshua, Kate, and Jasper, as well as my husband, sleeping soundly while I prepare their breakfast. I love how I prepare bacon and egg and throw a couple of bread in the toaster while I mix their milk or juice. As for me, I love the smell of freshly brewed coffee in the coffee maker and some slice of bread to start off my day.

Aside from these, I love how mornings give me the energy to start my day with so much ardor and enthusiasm. When I see the sunlight entering our house’s window pane, it reminds me of the convenient and comfortable life we have. This also give me the ample time to sit down and write my thoughts as well as my to-do list. I am also currently finishing my blog, and is navigating a website builder to help me in the design. In the morning, listing everything I need to do the whole day lets me do a lot more work and fulfill them all in a day.

We all have a reason why we are happy, and one of it is because mornings give me the energy for the day.

How about you, what is your most favorite part of the day? Let me know your thoughts!

Quote of the Day

Happiness is not a destination. It’s a way of life.

 

This is one of my most favorite quotes. Yes, happiness is indeed not something you want to reach, like an end goal or a mission. Happiness is not an ambition or a dream. You do not live everyday hoping that one day you will be happy.

Happiness is a way of life. It should be within you everyday. They said that a happiness should come from within. If there is something that made your day a tad glum, choose to be happy and appreciate how things are not meant to be. Realize that all things are there for a reason. Do not let something be a reason for you not to smile because life and short.

Choose to be happy everyday. Eliminate different negativity in your life and focus only on what makes you happy. It can be your partner, you friend, your family, or your kids. It may be your passion, or your dream. Hold on to what makes you happy and you will never go wrong.

 

A New Addition To The Family

A New Addition To The Family

I just came home from my son’s piano lessons three blocks away from our house. As I was driving around the second block, I saw a stray dog walking along the pavement. My son Joshua also saw him and pleaded if we could pull over. I saw how Josh looked tearg eyes when he saw the dog. The creature looked very tiny. He seemed to be hungry too but was very week.I decided to carry him and I put him in the empty basket just beside my son.

When we returned home, I saw how Joshua looked to concerned about the dog. I gave him his snack and place some milk for the dog in the counter. After two hours, he still seemed to be very weak. I called Nancy, my cousin, and asked her what to do with the puppy. She said we should go to a veterinarian so check out the puppy’s health.

Good thing there is a veterinary clinic in the nearby area in Rotterdam. Joshua came with me. The veterinarian said the puppy must have been missing for a couple of days now and it seemed like he has not eaten any decent meal for the past few days.

The veterinarian Dr. Mark gave us prescription and we bought some food and medicines for the tired looking dog. When we come back home, Joshua seemed so delighted to give him food. He even skipped playing at the backyard so he can attend to the poor dog’s need.

Looks like we have a new addition in the family today. I am sure Kate and my husband John will be very surprised.

Should I Buy A 360 Camera?

Should I Buy A 360 Camera?

So, as a blogger, it is my responsibility to make informed choices as to whether I will engage with certain Trends and media creation, or decide not to engage with them. I know a lot of bloggers just simply keep doing what they do, but I know that there are some people that read this, and I think that I should be Democratic about supplying people with the type of thing that they might be interested in. Like, if you want one type of content or don’t want another type of content, isn’t it so it’s my responsibility to provide that to you?

I Guess what I am getting at here is that I am contemplating buying a 360 camera, but I’m wondering if that’s the type of content that you’ve gone from a blogger like me. I know most people that read blogs have an entire roll of blogs if they follow, and Minnie write blogs as well. I’m interested in your feedback. I see a lot of possibilities for myself and applying 360 and virtual reality Technologies onto my blog,

Just let me know if I’m onto something here, and if I don’t get any replies I’ll probably start doing it anyway. It just seems like something that I want to try and there are apparently some really good devices with reasonable price tags that I could tap into. That’s what I’m going for. Let me know what you think because like I said I do want to create content that resonates with my audience, but I also don’t want to stifle my own inspiration. Do you know what I mean? I am sure there is an inventive way to combine this blog with my new interests and I am excited to discover what it is!

 

Show some love!

Show some love!

So, I decided that I was going to buy my man a nice new watch for him to wear on his wrist. I started searching for the best watches under 500, and it did not take me long to find one that I thought was absolutely perfect for my man. It was well priced, and extremely stylish, and completely fell in line with his hopes and dreams when it comes to his fashion sense, which he doesn’t always know how to achieve, but he does know how to articulate how he wants to look. What better role for a wife to turn that into a reality, even though he is sometimes too stubborn to accept my suggestions. That’s just how men are I guess, and you have to love your man.

I stand by my man, despite so much stubbornness, and it always ends up going pretty well for me. However, I didn’t think that the watch was enough, and for my last gift he had bought me something that was extremely expensive, he got us tickets to a really nice weekend retreat, which did benefit him as well, but I felt awkward spending so little on him in comparison. We have a lot more money than we used to, and birthdays are a good way to show our appreciation, and when I was holding the watch I just thought it felt a little bit small.

So, I decided that I would also buy him a little something extra, and I went to my favorite site for reviews on outdoor gear, which is always prove me well in the past, it’s called Survival Cooking— basically it’s just a hub of extremely well written reviews on camping and other outdoor supplies. I know that it’s weird to say that I love you as well written, but damn. These are some very helpful reviews for wives like me who want to get their husband something, but don’t really know what they’re talking about or doing. Thank you survival cooking for being an amazing resource.

 

 

 

A Garden Party for My Cousin

A Garden Party for My Cousin

My cousin Bea will be having her 26th birthday next month and we are planning to have a garden themed party for her. Bea loves flowers. She loves going out and it very adventurous. Our first plan is to have a beach party though I think it will not fit the schedule of many of her attendees. As you know some of her friends, and family members are all busy. Some are still students. Her family is also managing a convenient store business so I know this will be a tight schedule.

We talked last night about how she wants her party to be designed and we ended up planning to have a birthday party in their garden. Since we were kids, we always hang out in their garden because it’s always spacious and has a lot of things to do. They have playground there and a small swimming pool too! I know a lot of people will enjoy going there. She also told me she just bought last month some Adirondack chairs in the pool side so many could have seats. I plan to bring in some chairs too, depends on how many friends she wants to invite. As well as nice tables too. Maybe 3-6 tables will do.

Anyway, as we plan her garden party, we also talked about the dress code. We made sure everyone will be dressing up with floral prints, as well as summer themed outfits. She says she will be wearing a nice floral dress and she will pair it with a pair of brown leather boots. Take note, it is knee high! I am sure she will be the star of her birthday. As for me, I plan to just buy a nice pink blouse with a floral accent.

We also plan to give attendees flower crowns as they enter the garden to add more vibe to the garden themed party.

Garden themed party and a surprise!

I am very excited for all of our plans to be executed. Next week, we will have another meeting about the food we should prepare for our guests, as well as the decorations we will be using. I have already talked to one of our suppliers and she will show me some samples of the table decorations as well as the drapes they will put.

Hmm. what else? I am actually planning to have a little surprise for my cousin Bea. Maybe I will secretly invite her boyfriend, who is currently abroad working. Since it’s next month already, I should inform him of the plan so he can prepare and set his schedule first. I am sure he will make way for her. And maybe he can propose too! We do not know but who knows. right?

I will be updating you weekly about this garden themed party for my cousin and if you have comments and suggestions below about possible ideas and suppliers who can help us give her the best birthday bash she will have, please let me know guys!

Thankyou so much!

 

Have You Heard of An Elektrische Scooter?

Have You Heard of An Elektrische Scooter?

I was once in The Netherlands a couple of months ago. Unlike here, I saw how organized the traffic system there. You know I grew up to live in a community where there is always a traffic jam and sometimes, I end up being late in school, and eventually at work.

When I was there, I realized one thing that makes the roads in that place better, more convenient, and is hassle free. I learned that a lot of people are into electric scooter. In The Netherlands, they call it as the ‘elektrische scooter,’ a product which is really helpful to a lot of people.

I get to own, or rent perhaps, one of these from my former colleague. He is now living there and I end up renting his scooter because I need to do some errands within the city. His scooter is a black one. It has nice features and is really chic for a woman like me. My friend said there are a lot of colors to choose from and black was what he really liked from the colour range.

Well, if you ask me, I am really amazed by it. Aside from the fact that it is electric-run, it creates no noise at all. Also, it has a portable battery. And, it has a free helmet to use. What’s more amazing about this electric scooter is that it is really made for the city. Imagine a lot of people using it, traffic will no longer be a trouble for a lot of people anymore. This is something a lot of companies should learn from. And guess what, my friend told me it was delivered to him in no time. He told me about the fact that they really have a nice customer service which makes a client like him patronize them more. I hope, in my place, there will Unu Motors available in our place so that the traffic jam will have solution.

Want to Replace Your Boring Photos?

Want to Replace Your Boring Photos?

There are so many things I love about being an online writer. Like, so many. Often, I find myself filled with gratitude about my tasks and about my duties in this life. My little career as a blogger absolutely factors into the Gratitude I feel. But, that’s not to say that everything is roses and lollipops about being a blogger, or an online writer of any kind. Actually, there are somethings that consistently prove to be annoying issues.

For me, one of the most annoying issues that I commonly have faced in my short career as a Blog writer, hasbian needs to find grates, engaging images in a pool of mediocre stock photos. I am not being overdramatic, duck photography as a whole has lost any art that was ever a part of it. Or so I thought.

I guess I was always hopeful that someday a better stock photography site would come along. It just seems so weird that so many people would take boring photos of nothing significant, and that nothing original or interesting whatever find its way into the stock photography stream. Recently, I’ve learned that the problem is not with stock photography itself, it’s with the sites that I had been using which, seemingly, have not put very much effort in to the task of curating which photos they select, and rejecting photos that are not worth posting on a stock photography website.

EyeEm Is the site that I found, and speaking of things to be grateful about everyday, holy cow, this is one of them, and I think I will have many many days in which intense gratitude is felt due to the existence of EyeEm. I never knew Stock Photos  could be so good. Somehow I felt it should be, but I didn’t know anybody was actualizing that drained. Now, one of the worst parts of my job has become one of my favorites. Photography is a form of Art. A site like EyeEm proves this to be true.

Happiness: My Baby Cam

Happiness: My Baby Cam

As you know, I am an individual who very much appreciates and loves happiness. I never undervalue the presence of bliss, joy, laughter, and peace in life. A lot of people asking me how I define happiness, and I don’t really have a definition that is always true. I think happiness is like, a feature in certain moments that can manifest in different ways.

That’s how I feel about it, anyway. So, naturally, from this point of view, I can tell you that one thing that seems to turn up in every definition of happiness that I feel or think of, is the absence of stress, worry, sadness, and other forms of unhappiness.

That might seem like a bit of a cop-out, to define something as being the opposite of its opposite, but in this case I think that because we’re talking about a feeling it kind of works. So, a lot of my philosophy and action regarding my philosophy relates to how to remove sources of unhappiness and stress. For me, motherhood is part of life that I experienced a lot of stressing.

Which makes sense and I think is totally natural, but is still sometimes a part of life that I think calls for new answers and fresh approaches to cultivate a more positive the solutions to the hardest and most difficult parts. For me, this WiFi baby monitor was one little solution that I would like to share.

I know it’s just an anecdote, but by purchasing this product I created so much peace of mind for myself, because I knew that my baby monitor was fully connected in top-of-the-line, so I didn’t have to worry about putting my baby to sleep, and getting some of my own sleep, too from what I’ve heard, this type of feeling is not uncommon at Monk’s new mothers, so, I think that it is very good to have products like this, and it’s totally worth the investment.

I’m going to start thinking about more aspects of my life with this new knowledge, just trying to trim the fat that causes stress, and find Positive Solutions to the things that have been causing any source of unhappiness, creating the potential and source of real happiness.
