Chilly Monday Morning

Good morning guys! How’s your morning so far? As for us here will I just woke up. I didn’t want to get up from the bed though, but Charles (my nephew) woke me up. He wanted me to turned on his TV show’s since his mom was busy feeding his baby brother. Oh I really hate when someone woke me up but my nephew won’t ever stop disturbing me if he doesn’t get what he wants. So anyway here I am in the computer trying to finish my work that I was not able to do yesterday. My brother in-law was using the computer the whole day yesterday because he had some important things need to finish.

Natural Ways to Lighten Your Skin

Dark spots, and freckles, and skin-damage - oh my! Looking to lighten your complexion? Every shade of skin is beautiful, but as we grow older our skin tone can change. Freckles may appear, dark spots can arise, and skin may not be as light as it once was. So, if you're still not ready to embrace your dark side, read on for a few natural whitening tips and tricks.

Use Sunblock
One of the easiest ways to stay fair is to use sunblock on a daily basis. Find a moisturizer that includes an SPF of 15 or higher and use it every morning after washing your face. Sunblock not only prevents your skin from getting darker, but also blocks harmful UV rays that can cause cancer and premature aging. Remember your hands when applying sunblock, as they are a prime area for age spots.

Exfoliating once a week will remove dead skin cells to lighten and brighten your skin. Mix two tablespoons oatmeal and two tablespoons brown sugar with a quarter cup of milk, and stir until a paste forms. Gently scrub your face, rinse, and moisturize.

Make a Mask
A homemade mask is a great way to lighten your skin and a good excuse to kick back on the couch. Try using one once a week. Use one tablespoon of each of the following: sandalwood paste, lemon juice, tomato juice, and cucumber juice. Mix them all together to form a paste. Spread the mixture on your face and wait until it dries. Rinse and moisturize for a natural glow.

Licorice Extract
Licorice extract contains glabridin, a component that acts as a natural skin whitener. Apply a thin layer of the extract morning and evening, after you wash your face and before you moisturize. Licorice extract can be found at any health food store or ordered online. Be sure to store the bottle in a cool, dark place to maintain freshness. Note: test a small amount on the back of your arm before using on your face to be sure you do not have an allergic reaction.

Remember to love your skin no matter what color it is. It's a part of who you are and that's what makes you beautiful and unique.

Travel Insurance

I will be traveling soon and I was thinking it would be good if I will buy some kind of travel insurance, because we never know what we might occur during our travel. Its just an assurance that everything will be fine according to my plans. Well, I still have a lot of time to find the right travel insurance for me. I just have to open my eyes cause we all know that there are many types of travel insurance out there.

Just Browsing

Since its too early here all my chat buddy are all sleeping and there’s no one I can talk to, so I just decided to browse the web until I will feel sleepy. While browsing I came across to a wholesale liquidators. This website is like a surplus. You can find so many thing in their website that you might be interested of buying. I am also trying to find if they have a computer speaker, since I know I will surely be needed when I get there in NY cause I threw away mine, they were too old anyway. So anyway I have to continue browsing now and find what I am looking for.

So Many Changes

I am having trouble sleeping once again. I have been crying the whole night because I really miss my husband. When I close my eyes all I see is my husbands image. Yesterday when we got home from the hospital I decided to call my in-laws because they never heard from me since the funeral because I was still really hurting and I couldn’t bear to talk to my hubby’s family then. Since my husband died there are a lot of things that change. I don’t even want to watch television because some of the shows I like to watch was my husbands favorite shows too and while watching those shows it reminds me of my husband and it really hurts. When I sleep I don’t like to turn off the light anymore and I can’t sleep in the bedroom without anyone beside me. I am also avoiding to look his pictures, but yesterday when I called my parents in-law I started to feel so sad and alone. I started missing my husband again. I have been so busy this past few days which I was really glad because it helps me not to think of him.

My sister and her husband were planning to put up a new fence at their backyard. I think they have been planning it for a while now but really never got a chance to do it. Well, I guess I should tell them about this website fence quotes website, coz for sure they will be able to have an aluminum fence installation. So that they wont really have to worry to much on how they could install a new fence at their backyard.

A good tips

After you choose your favorite perfume consider the price per whatever oz. they come with. There’re usually two choices. The larger the volume the cheaper it is. Take Coco Chanel Mademoiselle for example; if you buy a 1.7 oz you’ll pay $80 for it. Buy two then it’s $160 but if you buy the 3.4 oz which is equivalent to two 1.7 oz, you only pay $115. To sum it all, do your math and you’ll be happier with your purchase. That’s how I buy my perfumes except for the new Emilio Pucci Aqua 330 I got. Nordstrom in West Pavilion didn’t have the 3.4 oz size. The 1.7 oz is $59. Now if I’m going to buy another 1.7 oz since this is my topmost favorite, I have to shell another $59. I’m paying a $118 for two 1.7 oz versus if I got the 3.4 oz I’ll only pay $96. Hmmm…next time.

A start

My parents in-law’s have so many Fig trees in their backyards. I remember 2 years ago that my parent’s in-law will asked a favor to my husband to help them clean their backyard and cut some of the fig trees. We used to visit them every weekend but now all those routines had changed. It still really hurt to face the truth that hubby is in heaven now. Well, I know it takes a long time to get heal all these pain that I am feeling now, but I have to do it one step at a time. I think everything happens for a reason. That’s why I am going to live with my mom and papa Kevin in New York to start a new life without my husband.
