Diaper Rash Talk

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.


Diaper rash is a common problem to a baby. Even newborn has it. If you see your baby skin around diaper area looks irritated and red then big, chances are your baby has it. There is no need to panic. Normally it will disappear by itselft after your baby one year old.

However, if the rash looks bad or quite extensive, with tender red bumps that spread to your baby's tummy and thighs, you need to take action. There are quite a lot of creams or pastes in the market for baby diaper rash.

When I got my first baby, she developed diaper rash quite badly. I think this was due to my lack of experienced. I didn’t do anything until it become worst. I tried two pediatricians, three prescriptions and every over the counter cream. I didn’t want to use antibiotics, because I was afraid she would get yeast infections because antibiotics reduce the number of healthy bacteria that help keep yeast in check as well as the harmful bacteria they're meant to destroy. Antibiotics can also cause diarrhea, which can contribute to diaper rash.

I changed her food, wipes, cream, diapers and nothing worked. After 3 months of trying every avenue I finally had something that worked! It is called Boudreaux's Butt Paste. For someone who had tried everything, and I mean everything, this worked. 

I heard this product before, I even saw it in the Supermarket, but I never think that this can work miraculously. If you want to get FREE sample, you can check it out in their website. Hey! It's FREE, so you can try it first before you buy.

Sweater to Bag

If you like to recycle, this idea to transform a wool sweater into a one-of-a-kind designer bagworth to try. You always need additional hand-bag, plus you always use this as a gift to your friends and relatives.

Another idea of mine is the next time I saw nice cheap sweater, I will buy 2 at once. One to wear as it is, the other one is to transform as a bag. Then I will have a matching bag with my outfit. Let me know how you think in the comment section.

Interested? Here is the link to the pattern.
Happy sewing!

Spicy Talk

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love spicy food and my husband who loves to cook for me makes it frequently. I have a higher chilly tolerance than most people I know, but I wouldn't say I have fewer taste buds, it's a tolerance that got slowly built up over a few years, and when i first start eating something really hot, there's still the initial shock but after a minute or two I get used to it.

I still can eat non-spicy food, but if can choose, I still prefer some food with a lot of spice on it if possible. So, probably you can guess that I will order Sichuan food in Chinese restaurant, put piri-piri sauces on my Nandos, or put Tabasco on my pizza.

I was always carrying a big bottle (350ml) of Tabasco in my hand-carry bag whenever I was traveling, I haven't been served a meal on the plane that didn't get better with Tabasco. Now, I have to put it inside my check-in luggage, afraid that the customs will confiscate it.

Tabasco is one of those things which can be added to almost any food to improve its taste, my favorite is to use Tabasco Original Red on Pizza. I think it enhance the flavor of the pizza and give it a little zest. If you also like to add Tabasco on your pizza, you must check this page: Pizza Perfected.

Since it's football season and the Super Bowl is right around the corner, it's a pizza time! This is the tradition that we have since we got married and we stick to that game day tradition until now. Of course TABASCO® Original Red is part of this tradition.

I also loves to eat pot-pie with Tabasco. A pot pie is a type of baked savory pie with a bottom and top completely encased by flaky crusts and baked inside a pie tin to support its shape.

This is the recipe:

1. First you will need to get the pot pie. You can make it from scratch if you know how, or you can just buy one from the freezer section in the grocery store.

2. Cook the pot pie as directed.

3. Once it is cooked completely add about a teaspoon of sugar and about four or five shakes of Tabasco sauce to your chicken pot pie (any hot sauce will work, but Tabasco sauce has the best flavor for this recipe).

4. Eat and enjoy!

This gives your chicken pot pie a spicy kick!

Another Use of Binder Clips

I am not very good using machine. That is why I prefer to hand sew my quilt rather than using machine. However, recently I saw some good tips how to tackle several layers together when a pin just wouldn't do it. Binder Clips! It looks a good idea to me and I would love to try it someday.
