It is always during the fall and winter seasons when allergies hit my household. I know it is normal but I admit it is very irritable. What should we do to reduce or perhaps prevent allergies and sickness from getting worse? Stock up allergy medicines in our medicine cabinets, exercise more weekly, eat more vegetables and fruits, drink lots of water daily, and get a lot of rest whenever there’s a chance. These are very helpful. But winter time is not very friendly when it comes to health issues. This is the time we get struck with common respiratory sickness like cough and colds.
Air-conditioning sometimes doesn’t help on this depending on the level of humidity inside our homes. I am glad that the use of a humidifier can help balance the humidity level in the house. The very first humidifier my dear husband and I bought three years ago was an invisible mist humidifier. A couple of things I didn’t like about that one were buying filters and loud sound in the room.
I am thankful that Influenster has given me the opportunity to try Vicks EasyFill Cool Mist Humidifier for free. It was one of the amazing gifts I received in December 2016. It came just in time because we needed a new humidifier in the house. We haven’t had a cool mist humidifier before.
Easy to clean
No filters needed
Requires demineralization cartridge (hard water)
Vapor pads slots
Bigger than the average-sized humidifiers
A little pricey
If you want a quiet humidifier and you don’t want to buy filters more often, I recommend Vicks EasyFill Cool Mist Humidifier. As for me and my household, this device is very helpful. I have a child who is very sensitive to low humidity so I say this product is a keeper.
I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing and review purposes.

We got a bit of snow this afternoon around 1:00 P.M. here in North Texas. My darling daughter kept telling me since this Tuesday about the possibility of snow because her teacher said so. I checked the weather forecast and it was clear all week and the freezing days are Thursday to Saturday. I found no chance of snow or rain whatsoever.
But when I was entering Walmart store to buy a pair of mittens for K close to one o’clock this afternoon, I saw flurries falling from the sky. I thought it won’t last long. As soon as I got home, the flurries turned into snow. So when my darling daughter arrived from school, we put on our winter coats, winter boots, and mittens then went outside and play in the snow.
You know children are naturally curious individuals. They always check on little things wherever they go, and whatever they do they will always ask questions. And we should be keen and ready to answer their inquiries. One of the things that amazes them is snow. What is snow made of? Why does it snow? We know that snow is composed of snowflakes. So K was checking the snow and saw snowflakes formation. She said to me,
“Mommy, snowflakes have different shapes right?
“Yes,” I said.
Naturally formed snowflakes differ from one another through happenstance of formation. (Wikipedia.org)
She found two and pointed at them so I can see. I won’t even see them immediately, those tiny little snowflakes on the plastic chair. 🙂
We had fun playing in the snow. K’s most favorite thing was when she found two beautiful snowflakes.
K’s outerwear – Hawke & Co. Outfitters (birthday gift from dear friend)
Boots – Crocs (gift from Na-Na and Paw-Paw)
Panda hat (from Na-Na)
Mittens – Faded Glory
Jeans/Pants – Gymboree
Baby girl and I went to the cinemas and watch the Trolls movie. I thought it was just one of those exaggerated animated movies for kids that I don’t like. We found it musically entertaining, fun, cheerful, and cute. It has a bit of a fairy tale story in it. I thought Poppy would be K’s favorite. But it was Branch that she likes because he became a happy troll at the end of the movie.
So guess what she received on her 6th birthday from Mom and Dad? Trolls plush toy and Poppy’s pink wig. My baby girl was very happy. 🙂
I love carnations, too . It makes sense because they are my (and my sister’s – Mildred) birth month flowers. January.
