ZAP THOSE ZITS

ADULTACNEPROB

As I was flipping through some of the lifestyle magazines recently, I realized that more and more companies are coming out with new products and solutions in their advertisements. They would be offering slimming courses, weight loss products, hair treatments and beauty products of many needs and wants, obviously setting their targets towards those young urban professionals.

Nowadays, it had become quite a norm that regardless you are a man or a woman, cosmetic products had become quite a hot selling product on the market as both sexes are willingly to spend a lot of time and money to make their appearances excel in public. Needless to say, they would be on a high look out for products related to skin whitening, moisturizing, anti wrinkles, adult acne problems, pigmentation and many more.

I often wondered how much money one would need to earn in order to have the best appearance in the eyes of others. Looking good would never stop there as you would also need to maintain your appearances throughout your life. There’s the facial scrub to exfoliate dead skin and black heads, the facial wash to have a cleaner skin from the dirt and dust within the atmosphere, the face moisturizer or toner to moist your skin for a healthier and ageless look. The list will never end there as there would be different products available to suit different needs such as for dry skin, oily skin, pores, etc.

AN ENLIGHTENING EXPERIENCE DURING A REUNION

MIELEVACUUM

With most of my friends back during the recent festive season, we took the opportunity to hold a reunion cum open house party at one of my friend’s recently bought double-storey semi-detached house. To our amazes, it was one of the most well maintained houses we have ever been to, with not even a speck of dust in sight. The puzzling part was that she would only employ the help of a weekend maid every fortnightly to assist in cleaning up the house.

As a working wife, mother and cook for dinners, how did she manage to cope with the vast space? Magic? Hmm… maybe not as she’s not just like the “Sabrina” I know and I did not see “Salem” the cat around too. Haha! I hope she will reveal to us her secret as my house would really need such a clean environment and I do have some pets running about too.

Ever since junior high school, I have never seen her surrounding to be this super clean unless she had the help of her mother, who was not staying with her that time. After much persuasion from our bunch of good friends, she finally revealed her secret. She relied on the help of her old faithful – the Miele vacuum cleaner to do all the wonders. With barely much effort, she managed to suck up all the unwanted allergens at every loops and corners in the house. What an amazing product! I better get one too as mine did not have the ability to keep my house spotlessly clean.

Anyway, it was indeed a great party as we get to exchange news about our lives since leaving school. Moreover, I had an enlightening experience learning how to be a great household taker in the near future.

RELAXING AT HOME WATCHING ADVENTUROUS MOVIES

RENTEDRV

Instead of going out to enjoy the bright and sunny weekend, I decided to stay home for some relaxation after a long week of stressful projects. Slumping on my lazy man’s couch with a bucketful of caramelized popcorns, I decided to watch some adventurous movies on the tube. At least, it would not be as tiring as my usual weekend adventurous trip in search of excitements with my friends. Well, adventurers do need some rest too right? 😛

There was this movie about a family’s plan to explore the continent on a long stretch of holidays. Filling up their rented RV with all the necessary items, they embarked on journey that would always be in their nightmares. They did not realize that renting a cheap recreational vehicle (RV) would not save up some amount of money. Eventually, their vehicle met with lots of complication that their so-called happy holiday ended up disastrous. Thus, they spent more on lodging as their vehicle was at the workshop most of the time.

From this movie, I realized how lucky I am to be able to own my vehicle through some rv financing instead of relying on rented ones. I would say it’s a matter of luck as some older RV indeed would have more breakdowns through the years of wearing and tearing. At least, I don’t have to go through the trauma as experienced by that family. I love my RV!

PUTTING YOUR CREATIVITY IN GOOD USE

CRYSTALEARRINGS

Ever since her tender years, my sister loved to wear beads wherever she went. Not only was she beautiful with them, she had the taste of getting the best match for all her dresses. During that time, she would always spend hours and hours in local bead shops, looking for the right color contrast for whichever new dress she had purchased. Somehow, that got her to take up a hobby in creating her own style of fashion. She would buy colorful beads and make them into bracelets, anklets and many more that were rather unique by their own. One of the products that I see her purchase very often due to their quality, were the Swarovski Crystal beads.

These crystallized Swarovski Crystal Elements can be used to make any kind of jewelry, such as ring, earrings, bracelet, anklet and necklace. The beads come in many forms and shapes. There’s the cubist, star bead, fish bead, flower bead, wing bead, butterfly and etc too. The best part was that she could easily purchase them online. Moreover, she would save a lot for shipping for over $25 of purchases. The company would deliver them for free.

I should perhaps hire her to make more jewelry for me from time to time as her creations would surely make perfect gifts for Christmas. I can’t wait to see her finished products as my friends would surely love her unique creations.

A WEDDING TO REMEMBER FOREVER

WEDDINGVENUE

Some time back last year, I received a registered mail addressed to my name. Upon opening up the mail, I saw a nicely designed wedding invitation card of Joe and Jenny. Finally, those two had decided to tie the knot after being engaged for two years. Time really flew very fast. At that moment, I thought it was another of those hotel receptions where buffet was served towards the end of the couple’s declaration. I was in for a surprise when I saw the venue on the card, “pack your best dress/suit and two days of luggage, you’d be driven to a private reception.” What? I have always known them as an outgoing and adventurous couple but this was something I had not expected from them. I loved surprises and this was one wedding that I would surely not miss out.

On that appointed date, I got my friend to drop me off at Joe’s house. Upon arriving, there was already a big crowd on the charted double decked bus. Sam was there, so were practically the whole university mates of ours. It was like another reunion for us. We departed from Columbia and headed for Duck Village along the southern shores of North Carolina. The sceneries throughout the journey were something I would not forget for ages. We were brought to an oceanfront palatial estate, Royal Caribbean II, a one of a kind luxurious, accommodation in an exclusive community setting. Everyone was dumbfounded by the beauty of the whole setting. There were 8 master suites with private baths, exquisite great room and regal grand dining with unprecedented ocean views on top of all the state-of-the art gadgets scattered all around the abode. There were also rooms for electronic games, billiard tables, ping pong tables and wide screen theatre setting, not forgetting a bunch of outdoor sports you can play with.

Wow! I was as if in my own dream home. I could not resist being pampered in the pool with built-in hot tub, stone fireplace while being blown away with the soothing pool side music. Being the non-traditionalists, I would not have expected that I would be so privileged to be invited to such an exclusive vacation with the wedding couple. It was one of the most comfortable and laid-back weddings I had ever attended. The wedding ceremony was simple but filled with lots of meanings for the couple as they had us, their families and friends, to be there, to appreciate the relationships we had throughout our knowing of each other, and to acknowledge their happiness as a truly wedded couple. There no denying that they had made a right choice by engaging an all inclusive wedding packages that not only would remain in their memories for a lifetime but ours as well.
