Bass Guitar: Starting Early


I am not a musically inclined person but my husband and his family are very much into music. Because of that I was exposed to rock music since my husband and his brother often have jamming days at home. My son EA, is also showing interest in music, which I am very proud of. He has his own drum set. Eventually, we will introduce him to strings so he and his dad can jam. Since my husband is a lead guitarist, I am thinking it might be a good thing to have my son learn bass guitar to compliment his dad.

The Little Black Dress

Every woman, whatever age, status, and body type, should have one or two little black dress inside her closet. For fashion experts, it is known as the LBD, and is always in the list of  wardrobe “must haves”, and I could not agree more.

Just make the most of the dress by pairing it with the right accessories and it will seem like a new outfit altogether.

And to give you, pregnant moms a dose of inspiration here are my personal favorite maternity fashion as worn by the Hollywood Celebrities:
