Some winter skin care products, I recently bought. Want to pamper myself a bit with Sheet Mask when my skin is so weird and dry. What more…. I feel the difference after using  Apricot Makeup cleansing wipes, gently removes all my makeup along with dirt and oil without drying my skin in this cold weather.

This year December starts with lots of snow.We went to Ontario Science center last weekend, its nice indoor place to go with kids to learn and explore science and nature that’s definitely different and better than Indoor game zones.

I bought this 18 – piece Rotating craft scissors caddy online.Every scissor has a different design and Bilal loves using them.If You are concerned about your child Fine Motor Skills(Grasp and Holding) than encourage him/her to cut paper.Holding and cutting make his grasp stronger.
