How Pretending and Dramatic Play Drives Child Development

When I was a child, I love to cut out human pictures and nice dresses from magazine to play. Growing from a small middle class family, I did not had a doll to play with. But I had tons of fun playing with my own DIY paper dolls and dresses. It has been one of the greatest childhood memories for me.

Now, as a mother of two growing up kids, I want to give them more than what my parents had given to me. Not only from the daily nutrition, but also spend time to accompany them to play and learn.
I believe that pretending and dramatic play drives child development. Not only the kids will have fun in it, it will also improve their imagination. Through pretend plays, children become more comfortable and prepared for life events in a safe way. Children often use pretend play to work out more personal challenging life events too, whether it is coping with an illness in the family or a house fire.
I believe that pretend play is much more than simple play activities; it requires advanced thinking strategies, communications, and social skills. Through pretend play, children learn to do things like communicate with strangers, consider others’ perspectives, transfer knowledge from one situation to another, delay gratification, balance their own ideas with others, develop a plan and act on it, explore symbolism, express and listen to thoughts and ideas, assign tasks and roles, and synthesize different information and ideas.

45 Years of Celebrating History with Timberland - #NEVERMISSEDABEAT

Everyone loves Timberland boots, they look good with good quality material and craftsmanship. This year, there's a new spin on a classic—only for Timberland’s 45​th​ year. In 1973, one of the first waterproof leather boots of its kind was introduced by the Abington Shoe Company. It incorporated premium full-grain nubuck leather, thick rubber lug soles and unprecedented craftsmanship, the yellow boot was an instant classic. It was named the “Timberland.”
Eventually, Timberland became the name of the entire company. The boot was never intended to be a fashion icon. It was made for hardworking New Englanders, rugged terrain, and wet weather. But by the mid-1980s, Timberland’s original waterproof boot started becoming popular throughout Italy, the United Kingdom, and Germany. In 1985, the boot became popular in Hong Kong with the rise of urban hip-hop style. Today, the boot and brand is recognized globally.
To mark their 45​th​ anniversary, Timberland introduces a special collection of boots to celebrate the heritage of bootmaking. The collection features remixes of the iconic yellow boot—made with premium materials and expert craftsmanship. Timberland completes the mix with low-profile chukkas, pull-on Chelsea styles, and Earthkeepers® versions made with eco-conscious materials.
Each boot is remixed with sapphire highlights—a symbol of the 45​th​ anniversary—making them distinctively unique and worthy of caring on a legacy.

[Review] THE FACE SHOP Ink Lasting Foundation

One of my favourite Korean brand, THE FACE SHOP has launched their Ink Lasting Foundation Slim Fit and Ink Lasting Foundation Slim Fit To Go few months ago in June 2018. Since then, Ink Lasting Foundation Slim Fit and Slim Fit To Go have quickly become popular among all the beauty youtubers and beauty bloggers here.

According to THE FACE SHOP, the new foundations hide imperfections yet accentuates the skin’s radiance. Thanks to the new technology, Ink Lasting Foundation Slim Fit and Slim Fit To Go provide perfect coverage with round-the-clock moisture. We all know that 
base makeup stays beautiful if skin is well-hydrated. Hence, Biosaccharide Gum-1 is added in the foundation to provides instant and long-term moisture to the complexion. Unlike Hyaluronic Acid, which loses its moisture as time passes, Biosaccharide Gum-1 gradually enhances its moisturizing effect!
The foundation consists of a unique combination of two star ingredients: Flat Cover Pigment provides natural coverage with its multiple flat layers, which closely adheres to skin. The formula is as light as a feather yet incredibly ingenious, while Air Pore Powder absorbs 4x more sebum than its own size, preventing excessive shine and improving brightness throughout the day.
As a daily foundation user, I am happy to give THE FACE SHOP Ink Lasting Foundation a try.
