World Nature Conservation Day!

MANILA, Philippines – Celebrated on July 28 each year, World Nature Conservation Day recognizes that a healthy environment is the foundation for a stable and productive society and to ensure the well-being of present and future generations, we all must participate to protect, conserve, and sustainably manage our natural resources.
We all depend on natural resources like water, air, soil, minerals, trees, animals, food, and gas to live our daily lives.
The state of nature has an impact on human survival, local and global economics, community life, human health and wellbeing. On this day, let us make a conscious effort to contribute to the local, national, and global efforts in conserving nature and the benefits they provide for the present and future generations.
Tips on saving natural resources:
1. Unplug the appliances that are rarely used. Unplug your chargers when you' re not charging your cell phones, digital camera, laptops and other gadgets. Keep them unplugged until you require them.
2. Switch off the lights when you leave a room. Follow this thing at office as well. One can use energy saving lights at their place to save energy.
3. Make sure that you use recycle products such as - newspaper, office paper, cardboard, aluminum, glass, tin, steel, plastic, batteries and everything else possible. It is because it helps in saving natural resources.
4. People should grow more and more trees to save natural resources. Trees help people to breathe. It has become really essential to stop deforestation and encroachment as people overexploit the natural resources for their personal benefit.
5. People should start using and promoting non conventional sources of energy like solar energy. It is because it is infinite, saves our environment problem and it is one of the most lucrative ways to satisfy the giant energy needs of human being.

Stay at Home Mommie teamed up with To Sew With Love and To Cook With Love to bring you this exciting giveaway sponsored by
So, you're not expecting (yet)? You don't have small kids either? But I'm sure you know somebody who is expecting or has small kids! I wish i have this book way back when i was a pregnant and i think it is a must for every mom in the whole world. The books we are giving away would make a great baby shower gift and/or mother's day gift!

WhatToExpect is one of the most favorite site of pregnant women. In fact, they have the second largest audience of pregnant women online! They also have an array of best-selling books any expecting mom would love to have! You will also love the fact that at, you will find not just information and news about pregnancy, newborn, infant and toddlers but also an online community where you get to meet other moms and support each other, too!

*Review by To Sew With Love

I received three books from WhatToExpect and I honestly wish I found this treasure when I was pregnant and/or when the kids were small. Each book covered an extensive amount of area and practically has the answer to any question or doubt an expecting mom or a mom could have!

The What to Expect When You're Expecting Pregnancy book is a best seller and it did not come to me as a surprise. This book is like an encyclopedia, a pregnancy bible! It practically has everything you need to know in your pregnancy!
This book also includes:
  • an expanded chapter on pre-conception
  • a detailed weekly fetal development in each of the monthly sections
  • loads of information about pregnancy's emotional ups and downs and how to survive it
  • a brand new section on achieving a safe, comfortable and pampered pregnancy But that's not all! It also includes practical advise for pregnant women on the job and on the go!

What to Expect The First Year book is America's best-selling guide to baby caring. It covers almost every question a new mother could have regarding care for her baby: colic, teething, weaning, sibling matters, feeding, sippy cups - name it and this book has it! 

It also includes:
  • information on your child's monthly growth and development
  • feeding and sleeping strategies
  • up-to-date medical and practical tips

 Kids grow up so fast! Before you know it, you already have a wonderful toddler! You will be amazed at how much independence they will be showing you! Understanding your toddler in this stage of her growth and development is just as important as the first years. 

With this book, you will get to understand and learn more about:
  • feeding picky eaters
  • solving sleep issues
  • getting your toddler to talk and communicate
  • temper tantrums and how to manage it
  • understanding their behavior and
  • keeping them safe and healthy.

These books could have saved me lots of worrying! These books should be a must-have in any household with small children.  You can buy these books through's bookstoreBut wait! generously offered to give away 2 sets of books to 2 of our readers!

2 lucky readers will win their own set of What To Expect books. Each set is comprised of What To Expect Pregancy Book, First Year and Second Year books. This also includes free shipping wherever you are in the world! How great is that!
