Plants are here for a number of reasons. They liven up our space, they give us the oxygen they breathe, and they’re also used as ornaments that add a sense of life to our homes. That’s only true, of course – if you don’t forget to water them.

Look no further. Using a variety of sensors such as moisture and humidity detectors, Filipino student Russ Malangen has devised a crafty way to prevent just that. 
  “I programmed 3 microcontrollers that each have a soil and humidity sensor hooked to them.  The only thing I have to worry about now is refilling the water reservoir that waters the plants, although it can easily be attached to a rain barrel so they’re completely independent, barring any electricity outages that might occur.”

   Malangen’s plant-watering system revolves around the use of a computer-like device called the Arduino. It is used to trigger the electrical ports, supplying 5v to the AC coil in charge of pumping water into the soil. This platform allows the control of the state of the plants through several parameters, essentially becoming a robot that is threaded through plants! With further experimentation this project could prove to be a step further towards agricultural progression, if done correctly.

The young inventor says he hopes to be able to build this prototype on a larger scale hoping to change the goal from assisting forgetful individuals to something that could be able to change the plant and agricultural industry.

It's not often that I write about games but a few weeks ago I was going thru Tillywig's Fall Award winning toys and I stumbled upon a card game called Qetchup. What a weird name for a game and I was like what the heck...However, as I read the review I felt like buying the game and I did. Amazon seems to be only place where you can buy this game at the moment. I played the game with my family and they totally loved it. An absolutely great way to help the little ones understand what does NOT make a good healthy meal.

​The Q card has three different functions which I thought was peculiar but the game flows like charm...It's one of the most innovative games that I came across in a long time. I googled it and the makers are from Chicago. The game also apparently won two other awards from California-based Toy Man. One of them being the eco-Recognition seal. Further research concluded that Qetchup also received Creative Child Magazine's 2014 Game of the Year award. Insane, isn't it? The cards are made in the US which I think is great as you barely find ANY toy these days in the US that's made in the US too.

Sugaring is a method of hair removal that has been used in Persian cultures since 1900 B.C. that utilizes a sugar syrup rather than wax for epilation. The Sugar Stripease Hair Removal Kit captures the tradition of sugar hair removal for at-home use and comes in an adorable jar with convenient spatulas and fabric strips. Sugaring has many benefits over traditional waxing products since the sugar syrup does not contain any resins or unnatural ingredients.  Waxes can adhere to live cells and strip them away, causing more pain and irritation during the hair removal process. Clean up is also more difficult with waxing since solvents are needed to clean the waxy residue from the skin. Sugar Stripease only adheres to dead skin cells and effectively removes hair by the root with much less pain than waxing.  This process also exfoliates skin and conditions follicles leading to permanent hair removal, and will not irritate skin since the sugar syrup is non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic. Another benefit of Sugar Stripease is a decreased risk of burns since the syrup only needs to be heated to lukewarm temperatures before use. Finally, clean up is a snap since the sugar syrup is completely water soluble.

In addition to being 100% natural, Sugar Stripease is also certified Vegan and Cruelty-Free.  If you have sensitive skin you may also want to consider trying the Sugar Stripease Pure Fine Talc before hair removal to absorb any moisture on the skin and the Soothing Mist with witch hazel to calm and soothe the skin afterwards.  Overall this product is amazingly effective at removing even very coarse hair and leaves skin feeling smooth and silky.

To find out more and to purchase Sugar Stripease ($24.95 for a 9 oz. jar) visit the company’s website at You can also find them on Twitter (@SugarStripUSA) and Facebook (

Bobblehead gifts are ageless, timeless and can suit any occasion or any theme

I just received my custom bobblehead and I love it! I always wanted a mini-me especially when i see pictures of celebrities showing of their bobbleheads on instagram and other social media. I'm happy you don't have to be super famous anymore to have your own custom bobblehead. 

What I love about these bobbleheads is that you can not only make it look like you and have your hair and face but you can also personalise it with your favorite outfit! You can order your bobblehead easily just send a picture with your favorite outfit, I promise it will look just like you! Besides that you can choose a theme like artists, sports, wedding and music. 

A couple of days ago I left my custom bobblehead on my desk and my coworkers wanted to know how I got it. It is a great gift for weddings, birthdays or if you just want to suprise someone and put a smile on their face. Ofcourse you can get one for yourself too, who doesn't want to flaunt with their own mini-me. If you are a pet lover like me, you can get a bobblehead of your pet too. I think that will be my next order a bobblehead of my cat!
