Chrissy Teigen Speaks About Raising A Home And Family

Ten months after giving birth, Chrissy Teigen already posed for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. Wow! John Legend’s better half admitted she was hesitant at first but everyone made her feel comfortable so she did it.

The 31-year-old model tells PEOPLE Now that her confidence level changed a lot but once she got there and she saw MJ and the entire team rooting on her, she’s happy to do it.  However, Chrissy, in all honesty, admitted that she was for sure nervous during the shoot. She said further that she still had her belly line and stitches. Well, I still think that, to be able to shoot for Sports Illustrated ten months post partum is remarkable!

When asked about her and John Legend being tagged as #RelationshipGoals couple, Chrissy said, “I do think it’s kind of silly. I love being that way, because I love people looking up to somebody who has a relationship that’s enviable, of course. But also, the things they say it for are so stupid, like, we’ll be eating a burrito and someone will be like, ‘Relationship goals!’ and I’m like, ‘Go get a burrito? Just eat a burrito! We should definitely have higher standards of relationship goals, but at the same time we’re very happy to be people’s relationship goals.”

Can’t agree more on what she said. Everything is on point!

Starting A Vegetable Garden

I just have recently started my vegetable garden and I am just so excited about it. Just started with few varieties like lettuce, pechay, pepper and onions.  Since I don't have enough space to work on a raised garden bed, I just content myself with the vertical one in containers.  I bought some seeds from the supermarket and asked my son to get me a sack of garden soil from the nearby garden center.  It's actually my first time to try vegetable gardening as I always have some reservations doing this.  I am into gardening since many years ago, but I am just collecting mainly ornamental and flowering plants.

My affiliation with a gardening enthusiasts group inspired me to start a small one even in my own yard.  I bought some plastic containers and started right away with my DIY vertical garden.  I was so happy to find some small leaves coming out from my planted seeds.  





I am not so sure if I will be successful in this vegetable garden because I am really clueless as to how should I go about it like the amount of sunlight and water needed, fertlizer and other stuff.  I am just hoping that my seedlings would survive and become full grown as this will definitely give me an inspiration to continue with this new venture in gardening.

Turning Your Backyard Into A Haven


Turning your backyard into something magical is not as difficult as it may seem, it's not even costly, too.  This design as shown above is one great example.  The wooden canopy could just be a weekend DIY project.  An old set of furniture under the canopy would do.  This plus some good potted plants and solar lights would instantly transform your backyard into a wonderful view.  Add some string lights and you are set to go for that romantic date or to a weekend get away with friends. To complete the relaxing mood, you can even opt to use an audio technica.  That would be perfect, isn't it?

There are still a lot of design inspirations to choose from.  In my case, I always opt for something that is not so costly but beautiful.  After all, we would like to create this for relaxation purposes as we do not want to get stress right? I guess doing away with a great amount of expenses should be the first consideration. :)

Space Saving Ideas






source

It's always a pleasure to look for space saving designs for your shelves, side tables or just anything around the house. Not everyone has the opportunity to own a big house, so it's always a challenge to store and organize your things in every little space you have.  I'm glad that there are loads of ideas you could get online and some of these designs are not so complicated either that you can do it yourself or ask your favorite handyman to do the job for you.  I love that bed side table with a built in lamp, it's very simple and unique and of course, a great space saver if you just have a small bedroom.

I've also seen a design where an old gitar was turned into a wall storage. It's a  crazy idea but I loved it!



Sometimes, we really have to imagine things in order to come up with great ideas for your home.  Be resourceful enough to look around the house and find something that could be reinvented and turned into something very useful instead of just putting it away in the store room or throwing it.  Creativity is the key!

Awesome Shelves

I'm looking for something that I could do to cover the open space of our new bedroom.  I wanted something that's not space consuming and at the same time functional.  I've seen this wall shelves and though that this would be perfect for that purpose.




And for my working area, I think this design could be a good one, it's multi functional and I love those lights attached to the shelves, so nice and elegant! 



Wow, it's not really cheap to introduce home improvement projects, so if we do do that, we need to make sure that we're doing the best options that we have.  I am pretty stressed out every time  I have ongoing construction projects at home, it's messy and sometimes the workers you hire turned out to be so unpredictable.  My only consolation each time is when I see that our projects were completed based on the outcome that we've planned.




Ikea Products That I Love

I've been eyeing to buy some Ikea products through Lazada as I've always hear good thing about Ikea products in terms of quality and durability. As I am trying to update my home decors, there are several Ikea items that I am wanting to buy through Lazada. Here are few of them:




This Ikea Floor Lamp is so cute, elegant and functional.  Would love to have one in my bedroom and in the living room. Perfect if you want to read books or just do anything that requires enough brightness.  This costs Php1,1296 per unit.



This Ikea Shelf Unit is perfect for my living room and outdoor room.  I like the fact that it is narrow and can fit just anywhere.  The red color is also perfect to add accent to your dull areas at home.

I think this Ikea shelf Unit will be good to hold cute potted plants, vases, boos or just anything  even the rme fireface 800 that you are eyeing to have.  This could be a stand out in your living room or bedroom.  Oh and the price is not that bad too, it's just Php1,990 per unit.  Not bad for a great product.

My Favorite Banana Bread





Banana bread, banana loaf, Banana cake...whatever you may want to call it is my favorite baking addiction now a days.  I always have bananas at home as this is the cheapest and most convenient fruit to eat not to mention that bananas are super nutritious.  My idea of baking banana bread came up because of my desire not to throw away overripe bananas.  You see, bananas ripen very fast and if I would not turn into something else, this is indeed a total wastage. 

After my first attempt, I've realized that baking banana bread is so fast and easy and this could also be a great complement for my afternoon coffee.  Great, isn't it?  The thing is you just always have to stock up your pantry with the basic ingredients like flour, butter, sugar, eggs and voila! You will always have freshly baked banana bread all the time.  I love the fact that I could bake my own bread coz I could eat it fresh from the oven and I could control the taste especially the sweetness.

So the next time you shop for fruits, don't foget to buy a bunch of bananas, this is an incredible fruit that could be mixed with cereals, oatmeal, eaten as is it or turned into a banana bread. 

What an awesome treat!
