Pegs for the boys' room

Now that Vito is 4 and Iñigo is 2 and Piero is breastfeeding the life out of me, our bedroom is getting a little too crowded. While we're super loving that we get to cuddle our boys every night, we're not loving that our marriage is not getting any action (if you know what I mean!). So Vince and I have been discussing that it's time to convert our study into the boys' room.

I've set my heart on a red-white-and-blue color scheme, inspired by the bath sets Lucy gave the boys. Vince wasn't so keen on it since he is not a fan of nautical themes, and those colors are very nautical, very Americana. But when he suggested bold stripes on the walls, well, I fell in love!

Here are our pegs:

So big and bold!

So blue and white stripes on the walls. Shelves, closets and beds will be a dark wood since little boys spell destruction on white furniture. Then we'll just use red accents, like maybe on throw pillows, sheets and storage.

So exciting!!! We're so ready for a makeover!!!

Electrolux's Delightful-E Simple Campaign (which might win me a new washing machine!)

Hi mommies! I'm part of this ongoing awareness campaign by Electrolux called Delightful-E Simple. You say that as "delightfully simple" because the home appliances brand wants us moms to know that saving (electricity, water, time, money!) can be delightfully simple. Hooray!

Actually, the campaign is not so simple. And by that I mean it's not just your usual "Here's how to save etc" awareness campaign. It has many levels! There's the saving awareness aspect. Then there's a savings calculator. Then there was a fabulous giveaway of washing machines last September. Then, last but definitely not the least, there's a social awareness and giving-back aspect, too. It's really one of the best campaigns I've seen in a long time! Let me tell you about it!

The right tools can help you save money and be more efficient.
I believe in technology. For example: I have a steamer that cuts down ironing time from 2 hours to an incredible 30 minutes. My refrigerator and air conditioning units save energy so even though they're on 24/7, my electric bill does not induce heart attacks.

With an Electrolux washing machine, doing the laundry becomes easier, faster and cheaper because it's efficient in every way. You don't waste water, detergent and electricity. Your clothes are cleaner and treated better so they last longer. Best of all, you save time! And time, as any mommy knows, is the most expensive thing of all!

Know the total money you can save with the Electrolux washing machine.
Okay, I don't have an Electrolux washing machine (yet!) but I've been studying it because I need to replace our 12-year-old washing machine. The Electrolux Savings Calculator is helping me decide what brand to buy! This is a Facebook app that helped me calculate how much I'll save if I use an Electrolux front load washer and dryer or top-load washing machine. Check it out here.

I learned that I can save more than P11,000 a year if I used the Electrolux washing machine!!! I can use that money for my kids! Or for Vince! Or for me! Heaven knows I need a treat!

You can get a discount when you buy a washing machine... or you can win a new one!!!
Electrolux partnered with Meralco for this fun part: You can get up to P5,000 discount on select Electrolux washing machines for sale at Abenson Appliances, Anson’s, Metro Gaisano, Robinson’s Appliances, Saver’s Mart, and SM Appliance Center. Just fill out the Meralco Customer Information Form found in the Electrolux flyer included in your Meralco bill and present it to any Electrolux promoter in the participating stores. This huge discount is offered until November 30, 2014.

Or you can win a new washing machine! The Electrolux Savings Calculator app is also tied to a Facebook contest, which I joined of course because I really need a new washing machine! All I did was share my laundry savings to my Facebook friends. You can join, too! Go to Facebook, have fun with the app, share your savings and what you'll use that money for (New shoes? Your kid's tuition? Rent? A family trip?). Use the hashtags #DelightfulE #SimpleToSave. Four winners will win an Electrolux washing machine each!!! Please let me be one of them!
