Fancy a Wig?

I am past due a hair cut. My two girls had their last week but I was not able to go with them because I had work.

Sometimes I just want to get me some wigs (check out these eva gabor wigs, super like!) to avoid going to the salon for a hair cut. I am not comfortable having hair cuts and I’m not entirely sure why though I know I need some hair care from the experts for my dry hair.

Old Fashioned Handwritten Letters

For printing needs, I really wish that businesses offer more detailed printing services for those who want to have their works printed.

I for one dream of designing invitations and special occasion cards (3D cards!) as well as stationery pages for those people who want to go back to the lost art of writing correspondence instead of sending emails.

And why not, isn’t it more exciting to receive a handwritten note on a dainty and pastel-colored paper that read an email online?

I know I’d like that, even if it takes a while to receive these letters.

Be Healthy with Nestle Acti-V

As a mom of three, I have to be in tiptop shape to be able to cope with the daily rigors of tasks, big and small, that come my way whether home or work-related. As all moms (and dads) out there will agree with me, there is one thing we can’t afford to be: get sick.

One of the most common complaints we hear from people is that inability to have a regular bowel movement. There are those who take their time doing the deed so to speak but have to wake up early in order to do so otherwise, they will spend a lot of time on the task and be late for whatever appointments that they have for the day. Working moms and dads can relate with this predicament.

Being constipated is something people can do away with especially with symptoms that can cause discomfort and impede daily activities. If you have (1) infrequent bowel movements, (2) swollen abdomen or feels bloated and (3) feels pain in the abdominal area then you definitely have constipation.

The causes of constipation can be from any or all of the following: (1) inadequate water intake, (2) a disruption of the diet or routine, (3) stress [AHA!!], (4) resisting the urge to have a bowel movement [familiar?], (5) overuse of laxatives or stool softeners which may weaken the bowel muscles [ugh!] and (6) inadequate fiber in the diet.

Nestle Acti-V

If in case you suffer constipation often, there are three quick solutions to your problem: (1) Try to drink 2 – 4 extra glasses of water a day, that is on top of what you usually drink, (2) Take warm liquids especially in the morning [ok, time to do the lemon slice in warm water routine] and (3) add fiber to your daily diet. And to make it more delicious and sweeter, try NESTLE ACTI-V with ACTIFIBRAS

Cherie Gil for Nestle Acti-V

Why NESTLE ACTI-V? This is the only yogurt that has fiber in it. These active fibers in ACTI-V are called ACTIFIBRAS which help regulate bowel movement. With strawberry bits in it, NESTLE ACTI-V is not just nutritious but delicious as well. ACTIFIBRAS are scientifically proven in studies done by the NESTLE Research Center to help support the maintenance of a healthy bowel movement and at the same time improve intestinal regularity and transit. This definitely help alleviate the discomforts of constipation as well as abdominal bloating.

On Selfies

Are you fond of taking selfies? If you are living under a rock for the past year or so and ask what on earth is a selfie, this is what a selfie means:

Selfie means “taking a photo of oneself.” To take your own picture, you either extend your hand to make sure your face is within the frame of the front-facing camera or you stand before a mirror and take a shot of your reflection.Taken from this article I wrote.

I’m sure all of us have taken selfie photos at one time or another and with one that we publish online or have brochure printing companies print, there are probably ten more we have in our files. How do I know?

I just know, lol.

Big Doors

I edited this to make it look like the doors or the house itself was photographed a few decades ago.

edited to look old

It sure makes one reminisce about the times when our great grandparents were still alive.

This is a perfect setting for a big polished car to come and and stop to collect a lovely lady all dressed up to go a ball while her dad (who loves the best maduro cigars) look on with worry that his little girl is growing up too fast.

I think I’d like to live in this kind of generation, possibly 30’s to the 50’s where dressing up is a big thing.

I just don’t know if I can survive without my smartphone though, 😀

CarbTrim and Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

One of the best ways to drink a teaspoon or a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar is to mix this with your regular drink of juice or water. In fact, one of the instructions to having this regularly is to drink a glass of warm water with a T of Apple Cider Vinegar. You can add honey to make the mix sweeter and easier to drink.

This is my way of having a tablespoon or sometimes more, of Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar: mix with CarbTrim and add a slice of lemon or navel orange. TIP: slice a lemon or navel orange and put these in the freezer so you do not need to slice every time you need to make these drinks.

CarbTrim is a carb-blocking product in a refreshing iced tea drink.  It contains Phase 2 white kidney bean, a natural extract clinically-proven to block up to 66% of carbs you eat. ~source

Two of the many benefits of Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar are the following: (Source)

  • Helps control weight
  • Promotes digestion & ph Balance

Now these two would be great together in losing the weight. We need to remember though to moderate food intake and take one or two kinds of exercise to help lose the unwanted pounds.

By the way, I won TEN BOXES of CarbTrim through this photo, so go follow CarbTrim on Twitter and who knows, you might also win boxes of CarbTrim like me 😀

Here are the boxes.
