Create your own Halloween Costume with color of Imagination

Selecting Halloween Costume can be bit tricky as no one wants to end up wearing the same costume as their neighbors. I have thrown many Halloween parties up till now and I can say the most awesome Costumes can be created by yourself. One of my friends who always design her own Halloween Costume told  "If you want to rock the Halloween you have to be weird and so open your fantasy world and pull up the costume of one of the characters." Remember when we were kids and use to play with toys, we use to have our own fantasy world. So same way take a ride on your Unicorn and design your own costume. If still not able to find the costume than why not try mix and matching, pick some dress from costume store and accessories it with some wigs, hats, masks, make up,etc.
This year’s my favorite accessory will be a nice big veil this idea is inspired by Lady Gaga You and I song. I loved the song and her veil also. Same way you can try some accessories, metal hand from you and I song can be other option. 

By the time you are not sure about the costume you can surf various costume websites and get some idea.  Now this is the time to check out some old horror movies for some ideas. Here is one more idea from old movie, The silent Hill is a nice horror movie so why not dress up like scary nurse with red contact lens and blood pouring from the eyes.
I'm also confused about my own costume but I want a costume with which I can wear veil. Gothic Vampires is one idea that is roaming around my head but let’s see if I get a nice Gothic Dress.

How to Plan Halloween Party for Kids

Halloween is just few days away and so everyone has got busy planning this year’s Halloween Party.  Halloween Parties are awesome place to show your weirdest creation, you can dress up as filthy as much you want and still can be the show stopper of the party.   I love Halloween because this is the day when I can wear any rubbish outfit and can roam whole city without any one pointing at me.  But from last two years my Halloween Party has become little more descent as now we have now new little additions to our family. Most of my Cousins are mommy now and so Halloween Party has to be planned keeping them in mind. But whatsoever I love this new descent version Halloween as I love to enjoy Halloween with little Nephews and Nieces.
If you are also expecting kids on your Halloween party so here are few tips that can help you plan a nice party without frightening kids.  If you are worried about the decorations then here are few tips.
  1. Please be sure that you keep that body parts one decoration out of the picture. No Blood on walls, floor or any other place.
  2. Kids love stories, so narrate a story with some good light and sound effects.
  3. No body part Candies and cakes, instead get some cool funky cupcakes like pumpkin cup cake, doughnuts tied up with strings.
  4. Get some black colored balloons.
  5. Attach Spider Web on the way, kids mostly love running through the web.
  6. Stick sticky bugs and flies on the walls so that children play with them.
  7. Get water colors and lot of pumpkins and let kids paint faces on pumpkins.
  8. Get some Harry Potter Masks so that kids can be their favorite wizards and witches.
Here is a game which you can play with your kids:
Object of Game: To toss a ring around a pumpkin.
  1. Carve out a one to three pumpkins.
  2. Buy or make three or four rings about twice as big around as the pumpkins.
  3. If you don't know what to use, try an extra piece of leftover electrical cable and tape together with duct tape. (Scouts use this as a "Reduce, re-use and re-cycle" project)
Playing the Game:
  1. Measure back several feet, depending on age group.
  2. Give the rings to the player.
  3. A piece of candy (or two) is awarded for ringing the pumpkin.
  4. You can award one piece of candy for a partial ring and two if the ring is completely around.
Here are few Halloween Costume Ideas for Children:
For 3 month to one year old Baby:
I always love Infants dressed up as something cute and funny, I would never suggest anyone to dress their infants in some horrifying costume. In my last few posts I shared a dress which I bought for my friends baby, it is a lady bug costume, costumes like butterfly, lion, monkey, superman, batman or cute little bunny.
For one year old to two year old Baby:
By this time the baby can walk properly so now probably choose the dresses which would require baby to carry some item, like fairy wand, little Harry potter, superman or a batman.
For three year old to five year old Baby:
Are you sure that you have to decide the costume I’m pretty sure that you don’t have to worry as your baby has already planned his costume.
Many stores have started putting
There are many stores which offer funky infants and baby costumes, if you are still confused just have a look at their online stores as every year stores releases some new costumes and may be you’ll find some awesome costume for your baby. Here are few costume stores where you can look for baby costumes.
All these costumes have reasonable price and has some good Halloween costumes, you can even shop Accessories like hats, beards, etc from these stores. If you find some costume costly then I would suggest you to shop through Pennyful as Pennyful pay highest cash back for these stores. You can save 5. 75% on Halloweencostumes and AnytimeCostumes and 7.0% on Halloween Mart.

Thanks to my Friend, I'm perfect Mommy Shopper

It’s the time to go for shopping again for our new arrival Alisha, yes you guessed it right we all have planned to name her Alisha. Everyday her room is getting filled with more and more toys. As we all know that her mom is the most lazy potato couch present on earth so we all college buddies have decided to help her. Two days back Jenny brought a nice Safety Crib set for her bed. She is now ten days old and so sleeps with her mom but after one month she’ll be shifting to her own room and so we all are busy getting her rom prepared.
While surfing internet for more stuff like bib set and diaper bags I stumbled on It is a pretty cool store with cool stuff for babies but I found it little bit expensive as compared to other online stores. OMG see now I’m talking like a Mommy. So I planned to check out some other stores and while surfing I came around Cookie’s Kids. The site has clearance Sale up and so I grabbed some really cool stuff for Alisha. Here is a list of stuff I grabed.
·         Gluckstein Home Girls “Enchanted” Wash Cloth 4-Pack  for just $4.99

·         Gluckstein Home Girls “Enchanted” Bib 3-Pack for just $4.99

·         Winnie the Pooh Girls “Florals” Diaper Bag for just $12.99

·         Fisher-Price Kick and Crawl Discovery Gym for just $29.99

·         Summer “Slim & Clear” Digital Audio Monitor for just $39.99

I think I did enough saving from Cookie,s Kids and I must say this tore is the most reasonable store.
After few days we have Halloween and so it was the time to check out some Halloween dresses for Alisha. I was looking for some cute dress like one I saw in the internet in which the baby was dresses up like a hamburger. While surfing net I saw a cute Lady Bug dress at Corner Stork Baby Gifts and I must say I loved it at the first instant and so here is the Halloween Dress for Alisha
Snug as a Bug" Ladybug Snuggle Sack for $35.99

Now my shoppoping is over and as usual I checked the Cash Back rebates for the selected Store. I found both the stores at Pennyful with good Cash Back Rebates.
Rebate for Corner Stork Baby Gifts is5.75%
As the title of the post says seriously thanks to my friend because of her I have learned a lot about baby which store is good for shopping and what should be the expectant price of products.

My friend became Mommy, Time for Baby Shower Shopping

Yesterday was a wonderful day as I got great news that my friend has delivered a baby girl. The delivery was premature as some fluid started flowing in her body, something in doctor’s language that I dint understood. After a long surgery doctor informed whole family that baby and mother both are fine and doing very good. After listening to this news I was so elated that I threw a small party for myself, I cooked lovely dinner, pour some wine for myself and had a nice chat with my college buddy’s on Skype. We all were so happy that we started planning gifts for baby shower. But we were so much confused as most of us work in IT firms so dint have much time to roam whole city and select best gifts for our little angel.
So we thought of shopping it online from some websites. After a long search we were able to find few stores with good reviews and stuff. From the very first day we came to know that our friend is pregnant we started planning her room color, bed, dress color and many other things and now when we know that baby is a girl color will be creamy vanilla, butterscotch and pink. So now is the time to put those palnnings into action. Here is a list of stores from where I did shopping along with the products purchased.

First Store is
The site is offering some Clearance Sale where soft toys and hanging toys are for $1.99. So it is good place to buy some good baby toys at much reasonable price.

Second Store is
The site has many products but the main product which I liked was Twilight Turtle. It is a night light that projects the constellations onto walls and ceilings. It is very smart light and goes sleep with your baby and reactivates with a small push and thus the child is never alone and if the baby wakes up in night he can enjoy the light effects and fall asleep. This Twilight Turtle light is for $28.79 though the real price is $39.99 but because of 28% discount I got it for $28.79

Third Store is
My friends have already bought diapers and diaper bag for the baby so I was looking for some other important thing that my friend would need. While browsing I came across a very nice offer at on Disposable Pads. I got pack of three disposable pads for just $17.17
Peewees Disposable Multi-Use Pads - 36 Pack
Sassy Disposable Changing Pads - 24 Count Pack
Huggies Disposable Changing Pads - 8 count

While shopping all this stuff I searched them on my favorite rebate store-Pennyful and found good rebates 5.75% Rebate so I saved more on my toys shopping and so this store is now my favorite store. 2.75% Rebate, I already saved 28% with discount and now again 2.75% saving. 1.0% Rebate, I saved not much at but I know very soon my check out bill will be very high and then my saving would be even more.
This is just some part of shopping and many more stores have to be explored this month as I want my Baby angel to have best toys and gifts on her shower.

Ten Points why I shifted from Glasses to Contact Lenses

Since my school time I wear glasses as my eye sight is weak.  I always felt with my glasses and never felt that I must shift from glasses to contact lenses. But few days back my brother got married and I don’t want to look geek wearing glasses with a nice gown. First I planned to attend the ceremony without glasses but soon realized that I’m almost blind without glasses. So I thought of wearing contact lenses but was a bit nervous as my skin is very allergic.
Since my school time I never planned to shift to contact lenses just for two reasons first they are much expensive and second their cleaning is much difficult then my glasses which just needs to be wiped by any clean cloth. But this time I have no choice but to pick a nice pack of lenses and give them a try. At the beginning I wasn’t much comfortable but at the end of the day my eyes were completely adapted to lenses.
But now I’m using them from the past three months and find them very convenient, no cleaning for whole day, no breaking and I even look better with my glasses off. I even wear colored lenses for parties. On a serious note I liked lenses for full-range sight, I don’t have to move my head to see a full view.
Here are my super ten points about why one should wear Contact lenses?
1.      In summer I love wearing Sun Glasses but with my contact lenses on I don’t have to compromise with my sight.
2.      On rainy days glasses has to be removed as it is difficult to see with fog settling on your glasses.
3.      While having coffee or any other hot beverage glasses have to be removed in order to avoid vapor settling on your glasses
4.      Eyeglasses can’t be worn while running, jogging, exercising and so again vision is compromised.
5.       As there is a difference of 1-2 centimeters between eye and glasses vision is not natural
6.      I can’t wear glasses on parties with nice cocktail dress
7.      The area of sight increases with lenses and so now I have full range sight.
8.      My eye makeup is no more covered behind glasses and so now my eyes look better.
9.      With my Glasses Off I look younger and now many smart guys have started noticing me. :-)
10.  I love games and so now I can enjoy them without any interruption, Thanks to my lenses (maybe) our team won basketball game in Office Sports Tournament.
