I Haven’t Abadoned You Yet

To my blog,

Do not be sad. I haven’t abadoned you yet . I promise to update you as much as I can and post some relevant articles. You see, I’m not a born writer and it takes a lot of effort and thinking before any ‘creative juices’ flow out of my mind. So please forgive me if it seems I’ve abandoned you. Do not worry, I will take time to spend with you and take care of you.

Yours Truly,

the Blogger

Our Trip to Mega Bangna, Bangkok

We are currently in Bangkok right  now. My kids and I just  arrived from the Philippines very early this morning and we’re leaving to the South tomorrow. Then finally, we will be home sweet home.

But even with this short stopover in Bangkok, I still grabbed the opportunity to visit Ikea Store which is just inside Mega Banga. I just love this store. My kids also enjoyed  the experience as they were able to play (for free!) at the Smaleland. I enjoyed window shopping  too as we were free to touch and try out everything on display. Of course one can never go out of the store empty handed as there were also cheap items for sale. We bought a spotlight, a floor lamp, a beautiful curtain-like netting, a tea lights, tea lights holder, utensils organizer and a few stuffed toys. And guess how everything costs? We only paid 1,170 Baht!! That’s quite a very reasonable price for a lot of things!

Anyways, when we came home, I also got a chance to browse through the Home and Dorm section of Spencer’s. They have a lot of comic themed pillows and stuffed that can’t be found in Ikea. I saw they also have which others might be interested in body jewelry. I’m just so inspired to organized and beautify our home after seeing all the displays at Mega Bangna. I can’t wait to go back home and start working on it.

Different Patterns of Bedding

 

 

There are all kinds of exquisite bedding selections for adults and children in traditional colors, such as various shades of blue, red and white. You can follow your instincts for decorating the bedrooms in your home with floral bedding, or you can check out a wide array of camo bedding styles that are gaining popularity.
Bring tranquil meadows and eco-friendly emotions to any bedroom with floral bedding ensembles that feature a gentle color palette of neutral and subtle hues. A nice addition to a rustic bedroom retreat is a duvet with floral images set inside realistic leaves and branches that are actually digitally printed photographs. Try Bohemian-type prints of oversized daisies, granny squares or other interesting designs on different fabrics, such as percale, Chenille, crocheted knit and quilted silk. On the other hand, having earthy tones, such as green and gray, for camo bedding sets can present a fresh, edgy chic look to your bedroom.
Ranging from traditional to trendy, luxurious bedding designs are as diverse as the flowers in a garden. One away to express your style, art and fashion is with a floral bedding ensemble for a girl’s bedroom.   Typically, the comforter sets come with sheets, pillow shams, dust ruffle and valance to create the perfect spring bedroom theme. Some designs feature lace work over organic cotton Sateen or pretty embellishments like satin appliques. For the lover of the outdoors, hunting or all things military, the colors of landscapes, wildlife and blended patterns are of tactical importance. Camo comforter sets come in a variety of textures and tones, from jungle scenes to desert themes. Digitally photographed camo images on bedding fabrics let anyone, from babies to adults, hide out in style or show off some snazzy, patriotic spirit in the bedroom.
