What Do Miley Cyrus and I Have In Common?

What do Miley Cyrus and I have in common?

Linda Hannah montana_800_opt

Well, apart from what every girl like me might think that I would not want to do anything with her, one thing that I can really think of is that we were raised by music-loving parents.  Miley’s dad was a country rock star and my dad probably sings more than he talks (he plays the guitar and even composes his songs and records and enhances them using an Emg).

This probably explains why we are so insanely in love with music.  I have probably around a hundred gigabytes of music in my gadgests and my music collection is always growing. 

I love how music becomes a part of my life, from the MP3 alarm I wake up to, to the lyrics I make into mini-mottos for tough days.

Yeah, I know.  We rock.cpae-ef-heart-pinks

Four Ways to Avoid Getting Sick During the Holiday Season

You are so looking forward to the Holiday season and then you suddenly feel sick.

Cheer up.  Your sickness didn’t choose you.  It probably chose a lot of others, too.

Why is it that everybody seems to be sick during the holidays?

It probably may be a combination of factors.  The holiday crowd makes it so easy to pass on virus.  

Add the cold season and the stress that comes along with it, and you have a perfect brew for a sick holiday. I am hoping you won't have the need to visit an urgent care clinic , though, so here are :

5 Ways To Deal With Chronic Pain during The Holidays

Holidays are supposed to be fun times, right?

You don’t want to be a killjoy and beg off many fun activities just because you’re in pain.
You won’t want, however, to pretend to be having fun while you are in pain.

Dealing with chronic pain is especially hard during the holidays. Here are some tips on how to deal with chronic pain:


1.  TRAVEL SMART.

Managing chronic pain especially on the back can be extremely difficult when you are travelling and had to be crammed into a tiny space for hours.  The key is to always find a way to stretch and move around.  If you are in a plane traveling to Houston pain management is possible if you get a seat by the aisle.  You will have an easier time to stand and do some stretching.  If you are travelling by car, go for frequent stops, that way you can have a chance to move around and stretch your sore muscles.

If You Love Pizza, You Will Love This!

 

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links


Looking for a fun, simple, easy-to-assemble costume for this Halloween— that's also a hilarious pun? The clever creative team at BuyCostumes came up with a great idea for a Pizza Rat costume. It's a total hat tip to the Pizza Rat video that's gone crazy viral (if you haven't seen it, just search "pizza rat" and it'll come right up).

 

 

You can take this costume to any level you like. All you really need to make your own Pizza Rat costume are a gray hoodie and pants, a mouse nose and ears, and piece of pizza. You can also draw a quick rat nose and whiskers onto your face with a black makeup pencil if you'd prefer that route. And a rat tail can be DIY’ed with something as simple as a shoelace or length of clothesline tucked into the back of your belt.


As for the pizza, it can be real or fake; it doesn’t matter. Of course, carrying around a real piece of pizza might get kinda gross after a while ... just a thought. You can also create your own giant piece of pizza with foam board from the craft store or ordinary corrugated cardboard. Just cut out a vague triangular shape, and use some markers to draw toppings. It doesn’t have to be perfect – this is a last-minute costume idea, remember?

And if you want to be seriously authentic, wear your mouse accessories with a pizza costume. It doesn’t matter if nobody gets it: you know you’re hilarious.

Ingredients For the Perfect Guy

Mr. Perfect is not a myth..he is just a far-fetched proposition.

And despite what you think, he doesn’t always turn out to be gay.  In fact, with a little perseverance, every girl can find her Mr. Perfect.

Every girl has her unique idea of Mr. Perfect.  He could be the face in the crowd, the diamond in the rough, the guy with the band, the geek next door, the bad-boy-in-the-making, or any one of a million different cliches.

But no matter how different they all are, every Mr. Perfect can be thrown into the Boy Blender and distilled into four key ingredients – the stuff that makes up the Perfect Man.

6 KEYS TO BETTER BFF BONDING

6 Keys to Better BFF Bonding

Image Source: BuzzQuotes.com

1. Expand your circle.  Hang out with other groups but don’t disconnect from each other completely.  Meeting other people can make you more well-rounded and give you more to talk about when you do hang out.

2. Schedule a BFF Day.  Pencil in a specific date for your best friend once a month (just like a monthsary!)

3. Stay honest.  Better bonding means staying true to each other, even when it means having to dish out the hard facts you would rather not hear.

4. Create a tradition.  Holding BFF rituals can help you create the best memories.  They’re also something you can continue until college and even after. Just listening to cool music on those jbl control 26ct ceiling speakers without talking, just completely relishing each other’s company is awesome.

5. Count on her.  When you are holding a tough secret, it is easy to jump to conclusions and think that no one will understand.  Don’t underestimate your bestie’s capacity to empathize, no matter what.

6. Trust.  No friendship is solid without a big dose of trust.  It means putting yourself out there, sure, but the rewards of earning someone’s trust and having someone to trust in you completely are priceless. Project:Me Only Better

THE BEAUTY SECRETS OF ARGAN OIL

Original 

In recent years, argan oil has become a popular ingredient in hair and skin care products. This oil is obtained from the seeds of the argan tree that is found only in certain areas of Morocco. For centuries, this versatile oil has been produced through a laborious process that is still used frequently by the region's local people. This process includes removing the kernels of the tree’s fruit, toasting the seeds and grinding them into a paste. The resulting paste is then pressed to release its oil content. Modern methods make the oil extraction process much more efficient so that the supply of oil can satisfy rising demands for the product.

Products that incorporate argan oil are great for skin, nails and hair, but pure, or undiluted, oil is the most effective. This is due to the fact that certain products contain only tiny amounts of this natural emollient. It takes only a few drops of pure oil to achieve optimal results.

My Mom and I Shopback Together!

How is your shopping experience with your mom?

Well, I asked my mom about how she and grandma shopped waay waay back when there were no malls.  She told me she and Lola had special places where they get stuff, but like all daughters of her generation (I know so because my friends are saying the same thing), she and Lola had totally different styles.  Mom told me my grandma gives her the freedom to look and try on the clothes, but then, grandma has to give the final approval.  She would say, “Red shoes? That is so gaudy.” or “That is too short.  Are you sure you want to wear that?”

She told me she vowed that if she will have kids in the future, she will give them a chance to rock their style.

 

I am glad the shopping scene is a whole new world right now.

To understand why people like me (and my mom and my sister and my grandma and my aunt) tend to have skin that darkens easily and is susceptible to brown spots and what are the best remedies for such, it is important to know what causes our skin color.

Warts are common benign skin growths which are objects of concern when they become obvious.

What Causes Warts?

A wart is caused by a virus.  Specifically, a human papillomavirus.  they infect only humans and contrary to the old wives’ tale, cannot be acquired from frogs or toads.  They are acquired from other people and one’s immune system plays a role in determining if you will be infected or not.  There are presently over a hundred different types of human papillomaviruses, causing the different appearances of these warts and differences as to where they are found.

HOW TO APPLY BLUSH BASED ON YOUR FACE SHAPE

How to apply blush based on your face shape 

I love blush!  If there is any makeup I can't live without, it would be my blush (next to my concealer, of course.  Something that hides my dark under eyes , from studying must be my first love!)

Girl-Applying-Blush

Blush is the perfect way to make you look awesome, happy, healthy, glowing! Don't ever be afraid of it! A lot of my blockmates are scared of putting on blush because they might get the wrong shade. 

Here is a tip:  The right blush is the color your cheeks naturally turn into when you exercise or blush.  The right shade of blush makes your face look radiant.

How to Choose a Blush:

  1. Find a shade that makes you look instantly glowing.
  2. You can blend the right blush perfectly.  If you are having a hard time blending the color, the color may be too dark or too bright.
  3. Don't own just one shade.  Normally, you should own two (or more!).  One shade must look natural and is the color of naturally flushed cheeks and the other one should be a bit brighter for a pop of color.

How to Apply your Blush:

 

Your new blush came with a little brush, right?

Well, throw that away.

Seriously.

These brushes are so tiny they leave a stripe of blush across your cheek!  Choose a large, fluffier brush instead.

Now smile smiley.  Dab the blush on the apple of the cheek, Blending up into the hairline.  Also blend down to truly soften the color and make it look like it belongs on your cheek. 

Now add the brighter color on the apple of your cheeks.

*Use the guide above on how to apply blush based on your face shape.

  • Choosing the right blush color:
  • For pale skin, use pale pink or pastel apricot.  Avoid bronzer or brown-toned blush.  It will tend to look dirty on your pale skin.
  • For fair skin, use sandy pink tones.
  • For medium skin, use tawny, brownish pinks.
  • For tan skin, use deeper brownish rose.
