Watch Your Child's Imagination Grow With These Great Ideas.

Magical events take place when you, as a parent, encourage your child's imagination to grow. Of course, imaginative play really takes leaps and bounds when a child is allowed to independently engage in creative thinking. A child who has a well-developed imagination tends to eventually become a confident, successful adult who has an inventive mind. Let your child's imagination grow with these three great playtime ideas.

A Fairy Door
Not all doors are as they seem. During imaginative playtime, a young child will see a fairy door as more than an apparatus that opens and closes. A fairy door along with fairy door accessories, such as vibrant backgrounds, create a small gateway where fairies come through to visit. With a fairy door in her bedroom or play area, there is no limit to the places your child's imagination will go.

An Elf Door
Fairies are not the only magical beings who enter through a tiny door. A little boy who has a big imagination will see endless playtime possibilities with an elf door in his room. An elf door is the ideal alternative for boys who want a similar experience as a fairy door gives a girl.

A Roombox
The careful attention to detail given to a roombox makes this play item more than simply a small showcase. A carefully crafted roombox brings a certain realism to any child's inventive ideas. And with made-to-scale furniture and food items, a roombox becomes a world all of its own.

The imagination of young boys and girls is a marvelous gift. It is unfortunate that as children grow, their imaginations tend to become stifled. Therefore, parents should take every given opportunity to nurture their child's creative mind. Visit http://openingfairydoors.com.au/ to see all of the roomboxes, food and furniture, elf and fairy doors and other accessories available at Opening Fairy Doors.

Spotlight | Nature Republic Bulgarian Rose Moisture Toner.

Having heard good things about Nature Republic's Bulgarian Rose skincare line, I took the chance to purchase the Moisture Toner the last time I visited the Nature Republic store at Festival Supermall. The skincare line also includes an emulsion, an essence, and a moisture cream. However, I decided not to buy the entire line as I still have tons of creams and essences from various Korean brands, stocked at home.
Bulgarian Rose Moisture Toner.
The Nature Republic Bulgarian Rose Moisture Toner comes in a pink plastic bottle with a silver twist cap. I believe they come in one size only (155 mL) and sell for Php 255 per bottle. The packaging is very simple and straight-forward, yet comes off as elegant and feminine.
The silver cap gives a vintage vibe to it.
Sealed. :)
The clear-colored toner contains rose water, which is popular for its wide range of benefits to the skin. This includes moisturizing, soothing, and rejuvenating the skin.
Hangul text at the back of the bottle.
Filled with anti-oxidants and various vitamins, rose water also nourishes the skin and can help prevent signs of aging. 
Lovely rose prints on the side.
Unlike most toners that have a watery consistency, this particular toner has a slightly thicker, gel-like consistency - definitely a plus if you have dry skin. The best part? This product smells divine!
Comes in one size only - 155 mL.
What I love:
- The scent - beautiful, feminine, and light.
- Simple yet elegant packaging.
- Does a good job of moisturizing the skin.
- Soothes and softens the skin.
- No break-outs, safe for sensitive skin.
- Affordable price.

What you might not like:
- None that I can think of (except for the fact that practically everything in the bottle is written in Hangul).

Now here's a bit of trivia about rose water. 
Rose hydrosol (aka rose water) is derived from an intricate process. Small batches of rose buds are steamed in copper distilleries and ultimately release a volatile therapeutic compound into the water. The essential oil is drawn off, and rose water - containing micro molecules of essential oil and constituents from the flower - is captured drop by drop.
Amazing, isn't it? :)

Have you tried this product, or any other skincare products with rose water? How was your experience?

Kim Soo Hyun for Samsonite RED.

If there's one brand of luggage that I can easily associate with, it has to be Samsonite. Coming from an OFW family, it's a brand that I have been familiar with since childhood.

I remember my grandfather's big black luggage bag was Samsonite, and opening it each time he'd come home from Saudi Arabia was a treat as it would be filled with toys and chocolates. Even my Mum, who comes home from the UK at least twice a year, is a fan of Samsonite bags. Every time we fetch at the airport, her red Samsonite carry on luggage makes her so easy to spot among the throng of balikbayans.

And so when news of Kim Soo Hyun endorsing Samsonite broke out, I couldn't be happier. One of my favorite Korean actors endorsing my favorite luggage brand... exciting, isn't it? :)

Here's a bit of info about Samsonite Red, the line that Kim Soo Hyun, together with Hong Kong model and actress Angelababy, is currently endorsing.
Kim Soo Hyun wears an Oben, while Angelababy carries a Bona.
Tailored to specifically cater to the lifestyle of the upwardly mobile, Samsonite Red features different styles in various materials. From sturdy nylon in neutral hues to highlight its simple and practical nature, to coated cotton twill mixed with supple leather that lends to a more urban aesthetic, to more utilitarian designs that feature water-proof material and even sleek all-leather options that show function doesn’t have to come at the expense of style.
Liebe, an all-in-one, unisex bag that can be used for day and night activities.
Comes in orange, gray, navy, and emerald green.
Liebe in Navy.
Diversity is essential to this collection. Samsonite understands that an ‘everyday bag’ isn’t a one size fits all concept; it is defined by the individual's aesthetic, everyday needs, and his or her way of life.
Easy-Way has multi-function and well-organized compartments.
Perfect for yuppies who go for the casual yet trendy style.
Fort has a minimalist style and comes in tooled leather.
It's available as a backpack, briefcase, and cross-shoulder bag.
It’s a collection that simplifies the process of finding a replacement for that trusty old backpack or tote, by giving you a selection of options that range from minimalist to quirky - depending on ones's needs and personality.
Genio is very simple, yet pleasing to the eye with its nylon and leather combination.
It comes in backpacks, briefcases, and cross-shoulder bags.

Samsonite Red represents the kind of low-key collection that has become the benchmark of utility and style - simple, functional but still chic. And you can’t ask anything more from a fashion staple that you will essentially be wearing everyday.

Samsonite Red is a brand of innovation, designed to make new ideas into reality. Available nationwide in selected Rustan’s department stores, Ayala Malls, SM department stores, Robinsons Mall, KCC Veranza Mall, Resorts World, Eastwood Mall, Podium, Lucky Chinatown Mall, Shoppesville Greenhills, Paseo de Sta. Rosa, Shangri-la Mall, Bonifacio High Street Central and Limketkai Mall.
