Friday Finds #2: Photos, Baking Videos, and Tutorials

Two weeks ago, I posted a list of my Recent Finds: Worksheets, Websites, and Weddings  which I’ve found useful lately. Here’s another list, which I might do more often, as it works well for me rather than individually posting them which would eat too much of my “little” remaining blogging time. Anyway, here they are! Enjoy! =)


Sometimes (or most of the time, if you are also a blogger), I need a good quality photo for my posts or projects. The internet offers some great ones but—with watermarks.  I believe you will love UNSPLASH as much as I do. You can get FREE HIGH RESOLUTION PHOTOS! Again…for FREE! High Res photos. =))) Easy to download. You don’t even need to sign up. Case closed. Just go to the site. =)

2.  Mentoring Moments for Mothers

I came across a post from this site about being a mom and how to love the season of mothering kids because they soon will grow up and you will just miss the laughter, the mess, the crazy life in the house, etc. I just can’t find the post, but here’s the link to Mentoring Moments where you can see more articles about motherhood, singleness, family life, and practical living.

3. Nerdy Nummies by Rosanna Pansino

Nerdy Nummies is a baking tutorial that my kids love. Rosanna Pansino, a  geeky gal combined her love for baking and gaming. She is really funny and the video quality is awesome. =) Vides are short and easy to understand. I’m not surprised why she has 7 million subscribers! 7 million! Imagine that. =) I sometimes watch Nerdy Nummies’ videos with my kids as a down time before sleeping. I get to search for baking ideas while having fun and teaching the kids the ingredients used.

4. Dancakes

Doctor Dan just took pancake to the highest level here. haha A very detailed pancake art.

5.Cake Arts Jeddah

A wholesale & supply store for your baking needs. =)  Well, tools actually. Most of the products are from Wilton.

Facebook Page: Cake Arts JD

You can also read my post on what to see inside Cake Arts Jeddah

6. Bakemate Jeddah

Just beside Cake Arts is Bakemate. A supplier of baking ingredients. They also have baking tools and silicon molds for big ovens. If your business is baking, you should come here because the price of around 1.5 kg of white chocolate morsels is just 24 SR. In the grocery, a pack of 320 grams is around 22 SR. Yay!

Here’s my post about Bakemate Jeddah

7. Poli the Police Car

I have 3 boys. By this time, I’ve been forced to look for characters that boys will love.  Not the violent ones. It’s honestly difficult to find one because most of the famous characters are princesses or if I find one for boys, it will be about aliens, monsters, or characters violently fighting each other. As a mom, I believe I should be cautious of what I allow my kids to watch and guide them as they try to comprehend the lessons in the video clips they are watching. I allow them to watch of course, but I try to make sure it’s something beneficial. Poli the Police Car is an example. I love this, because even I, as an adult have learned so many things about traffic rules and safety precautions. haha

Some episodes I love:
Look out for blind spots
School Bus Safety,
How to cross the street safely

8. Big Hero Party Theme

Found these cute Big Hero cupcakes and other Big Hero theme party ideas.

9. Mauve Lovelle

Saw my friend’s tutorial on how to do a date night look. Feb. 14 is over but date nights are not. Love how simple and glamorous this look is. =)

Mauve Lovelle Make Up tutorial: Romantic Date Night look perfect for Valentines! Sparkly eyes and mauve lips.

10. Come to Hamburg

This is great for travel bloggers. =)

      1. No last time was mid year last year I think. Just a few days. Just want you to know I always check up on U and glad that you are keeping busy and with the new baby 🙂 Congrats!

          1. Sure no worries I always check my readers and followers too. Hope you can check mine when you get the chance for sure I have a lot of posts that will inspire you to travel. Cheers! 🙂

  1. I almost didn’t escape from the Nerdy Nummies’ video spell! haha! I agree, her videos have really high quality and short. Love the Unsplash too! I’ve visited it once, but usually I use pixabay and pexels.

  2. Thanks for sharing Unsplash, sometimes it is really hard to find free photos. Sometimes I subscribed just to get free stock photos. So mas ok nga yung walang subscription. 🙂

  3. I love Unsplash! I actually subscribed to their newsletter so that I will receive their latest photos through email. 🙂 I love Robocar Poli too. It used to be one of my son’s favorite cartoons when he was younger. 😉

  4. Yay! I use Unsplash, too! I have bookmarked several free stock photo sites but it is this site that I always end up getting photos with. 🙂 I’ve never heard of Mentoring Moments site so thanks to you for featuring this one. I love reading such write-ups as it helps me survive motherhood, somehow.

  5. What a great list. I’ll check out Mentoring Moments. Sometimes I wish I found these sites for mothers 13 years ago when I was so clueless on how to rear a baby.

  6. I’m already familiar with most of the sites you’ve listed, but Come to Hamburg really caught my attention. Have you tried it? How did it go? 🙂

    1. Hi. I’m not into traveling lately because I have a newborn. I checked out the form though, it requires traffic on your blog. So if you have many followers, this is worth a shot. 🙂

  7. I used to watch Nerdy Nummies with my niece and nephew! They would always ask me if I could do it, and I always answer ‘oo naman’. Lol! Kidding aside, thanks for sharing ‘Unsplash’… Yay!!! 😀

  8. Wow. It’s my first time hearing these youtube creators and websites. Thank you for sharing it with us. Finally, I have more sites to check during my idle times

  9. I definitely have to check out Unsplash, though for some reason, I still haven’t gotten the hang of using photos that aren’t mine. 😛 Great baking finds, by the way!

  10. I bake every once in a while..Thanks for sharing the baking videos. You always share something na hindi ko alam haha. This is why Im grateful na ngayon, I dont waste time sa toxic groups. I have the chance to read helpful and informative blogs like yours 🙂

    1. Awww. Thanks. Sometimes, I think people don’t need these links, but then I thought that if I had fun learning them, maybe another person might find them helpful as well. 🙂 enjoy reading. 🙂

  11. I checked Unsplash and the photos are truly amazing! I am not used to using other people’s photos kaya kahit pangit yung kuha ko post na lang! hehe! pero this would be a great tool! And I would definitely try the Poli police car for my son. thanks for this! 😉

    1. Really? Anyway, I usually don’t use the exact photos I get online. I try to add filter, crop or just change something so it won’t be the same. 🙂
