Sunscreen to the Rescue

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a miracle product that could protect skin from the sun’s assault? That could actually prevent sun-induced wrinkles? I was at the school this morning to check my son’s room, section and who would be his teacher this school year. Oh, dear, the sun was so freaking hot. I don’t have the umbrella, even a hat. I just wore sunglasses, but I could feel the heat of the sun on my skin; it was so terribly freaking hot. I am not scared to get tanned, but I already have sun burned at my shoulders from the last week “Brigada Eskwela”.

Anyway, I am glad that I don’t need to go back at school this week. He is officially enrolled. I already have done everything today. I also have the list for my son’s school stuff's requirements. So, the next thing to do is to shop for his school requirements like notebooks, pen and paper and more.

Speaking of wrinkles, I know it takes years of sun exposure to make wrinkles, but the skin is damaged before wrinkles actually appear. That is why, it is better to wear sunscreen these days and turning off the ongoing assault. By using sunscreen, you can delay or even prevent wrinkles.

All of us encounter problems. Some are hard to deal with while others are quite enough to handle. Some people have issues with their businesses especially those who are in the field of forex and other finance related business, while some have personal problems with their bosses/teachers or perhaps, have problems with their love life. But after all,it depends on how strong we are to face it no matter how hard it is or how difficult life will lead us. What is important is that, you have the courage and the faith to fight for it.

We cannot have the best of both of world, as per saying. Of course, there are some things we need to risk. But it’s up to you on how to manage it.

Just make sure, you’re doing the best and you’re choosing what’s best.

Hamburger as a Midnight Snack

Yeah, it is midnight at our end, and my stomach is asking for something I could devour quickly. My son is sleeping here in my bedroom, and as much as possible; I don't want him to hear me eating in the middle of the night. I want a hamburger, but I don't want to go out alone just to buy a hamburger at the closest fast-food chain. Jollibee is the closest and they are open 24 hours, but I have to take a tricycle ride which I don't like. I checked the fridge and I have patty, lettuce, cheese, mayonnaise, but I don't have bread. I have avocado, but I don't have condensed milk. Oh! geez, I don't like to put some sugar on the avocado. I guess, I will just drink the mango juice. That's the only drink I have in the fridge.

How to Remove Toilet stains

I have been looking for a toilet stain remover at the supermarket a couple of days now, but I have no idea which one is really effective. I have tried Domex, Greenex, and more, but they couldn't remove the brownish or yellowish rings around and on the bottom of the toilet bowl. And so, I decided to search on Google, and here’s what I have found.

Vinegar

I haven’t tried it yet, but it says that you just place three cups of vinegar into the bowl, leave for at least 2 to 3 minutes, and then scrub the stains with a toilet brush. You can also put the vinegar on a spray bottle, and spray it directly to the stains. Be sure you drain the water on the toilet bowl.

Bleach

I am not sure of what kind of bleach this is, but it says that it is a very strong cleaning agent. You just have to put a half cup of dry bleach powder directly to the toilet bowl and let it sit there for hours. If we could see the stains have disappeared, then flush away the bleach.

Borax Powder

Honestly, I have no idea about this Borax powder, but it says we can buy this in a hardware store and not in a supermarket. You just have to sprinkle the powder directly to the stains and scrub the stains with a toilet brush. Be sure that the bottom of the bowl has not water. So, drain it first before sprinkling the Borax powder.

I guess, I will try the vinegar first, and if ever the stains remain, I will try the bleach. I really hate to see the stains on the toilet bowl. I wish the vinegar really works for the removing toilet bowl stains.

Visited the Salon Yesterday

Finally, I was able to visit my favorite salon yesterday and had my pedicure done after two weeks of being occupied from my offline tasks. I was supposed to clean my own toes, but when I checked my nail polish, there were bubbles on it, so I decided to go out of the house and visit the salon. Fortunately, my “suki” (favorite manicurist) was free, and she cleaned my toe nails right away with a foot massage afterwards. Anyway, if you have a problem with your nails, here are some solutions that might help you to bring back the life of your nails.

Weak Nails
Buffing the nail is the secret of top manicurists for building nail strength. The massaging action not only smoothes and shine nails, it also strengthens them by increasing blood flow to this matrix, where nail growth begins.

White Spots On Nails
Add zinc to your diet with zinc supplements or zinc-rich foods like eggs, milk, and liver.

Nail Fungus
Thickened, discolored nails sometimes indicate the presence of a fungus. The recommended treatment is to look for anti-fungal products containing benzalkonium chloride. By the way, my manicurist said, to keep polish from bubbling up on nails, don’t shake it. Turn bottle upside down and roll gently between hands.

I can’t Get Organized to Eat Regular Meals

Do you feel so busy with work, or your family responsibilities that you can’t eat properly? Are you so busy that it is easiest to just grab something on the road, from a vending machine, at a fast-food restaurant or from the cupboards? Do you find it too overwhelming to prepare three proper meals for the day, so you go the other extreme and eat mindlessly throughout the day?

Many friends tell me the same thing. I am occupied every day, or maybe I make myself busy every day. Either way, I can never eat right or sit down for a regular meal. I am not even sure what a regular meal is, since I used to having irregular meals. When I was working, I and my officemates will just run to the nearest fast-food chain, or we will ask our utility staff to buy us food from the fast-food chain. I actually missed the home cooking, but I don’t have time to cook even for myself only. Now, I am working online, and stayed at home most of the time; I couldn't still eat on a regular meal on a proper time. The phone is just waiting for me to call the delivery food service. I know I need to change all these things. So, I guess, it is time to get back to food basic. It may take a little time, practice and patience to get organized to eat in a smart way, but it can be done.

Establish a Stress-Free Space

Identify the primary source of stress in your home and do something about it. For example, if you dread the prospect of preparing meals for yourself, your significant other, or the rest of the family, you must find an alternative. Some people take great pleasure in cooking and entertaining but if you don’t, hire a stay-in cook or order reasonably priced and delicious food. It may be a bit more expensive but if it significantly lessens your worries and troubles, it may very well be worth it. Should you be hampered by a limited budget, think of other creative solutions. Turn the undesirable process into an opportunity for you and your loved ones to bond. You can also collect recipes and prepare menus ahead of time so you will never worry about what to buy at the grocery store or what dish you should prepare for a particular night.

A healing home is not measured by the physical properties but by the time and effort put into making it stylish and comfortable. Unleash the healing properties of your home by adding personalized touches. Paint a wall in your favorite color, light a couple of aromatherapy candles, use your best dinnerware every day, tuck a cloth bag filled with sprigs of lavender and mint into soft and silky bed sheets and reap the rewards of your private sanctuary.

Who Wants A Perfect Smile?

Honestly, when it comes to my physical appearance, specifically on my face, one of the most frustrations that I have is my smile. I don’t possesses very good teeth, probably, when I was small, I was so lazy to take care of my teeth, plus my mother didn't remind me to brush my teeth after meals. I so envy with people that when they smiled, they have beautiful pearly white teeth. Possessing beautiful teeth would surely give you a good impression when you smile to people. A poor tooth means poor personality, which is why even if the dentist clinic is one of the scariest places for me, I have to overcome my fears.

Now, after calling all the saints above, I have the new false dentures in front. Anyway, I am still lucky that my teeth are aligned, but my nephew’s teeth are not in proper place, so he needs to wear braces. I wish we are near to a montreal dentist because they offer invisalign, a type of braces that is invisible to human eyes. I am not sure if we also have invisalign here at our end. I wish invisalign montreal is just a taxi ride for us. I am certain that my SIL will go to this place with his son, so she could fix the teeth of her son.

I have an appointment with her for today, and they are giving us a beautiful discount. Anyway, my mom will go with me. I will just wait for her because she is still at the supermarket now. So, Happy Mother's Day to all of you.

Cravings

Craving is just another word for emotional hunger. When you’re biologically hungry, many different kinds of food can quell your hunger and fill you up. But if you have a craving, you have an overwhelming desire for a very specific taste and only by eating that thing will you get satisfaction. If you’re craving a chocolate bar, tuna won’t satisfy you. So, if you are having a food craving, don’t ignore it: acknowledge it and find a way to satisfy it. The more you fight a craving, the more it will become an issue. To move past your craving, you have to give yourself permission to satisfy it and enjoy the food you’re craving, that is why, even if it was raining the other night here in our place, I asked my son to buy chocolate ice cream at the store nearby. Hmmm… craving for an ice cream on a cold night.

Auto Insurance Rates

Auto insurance rates are calculated on many factors that are related to the car owner. A driver may have lower insurance rates if they live in an area with low crimes. Part of the comprehensive section of an automobile insurance policy will include theft that covers the vehicle and usually the contents within the vehicle. If a driver lives in an area that has a high crime rate, they will pay higher insurance rates due to the chances of the vehicle being stolen or damaged are higher than if a driver lived in a rural area with no neighbors. The rates will also include any safety features that the car may have installed. A vehicle with remote keyless entry may see a lower rate than a vehicle that has no security system installed.

A vehicle with six or more airbags may have a lower rate than a car that does not have side impact bags or rollover curtains. A vehicle that has had one of the backup sensors for cars installed will see a lower rate because there is less chance the driver will collide with something behind them. A driver who commutes a hundred miles per day will see a higher rate than a driver who works at home and only spends a few minutes on the road each day. The higher the risks are, the more the drivers pay for their insurance rates. Someone who would like to save money on car insurance can consider installing a few safety items if they do not already have them.

In Your Kitchen, Abide by These Rules

Conserving energy is a big part of reducing your impact on the planet. Some ways to conserve energy in the kitchen include using as small as oven as possible. The larger the oven, the more energy it takes to heat it to the proper temperature. Glass and ceramic retain heat better than metal; switching will reduce the temperature as much as 25 degrees. When using the stove, make sure the burner fits the pan; an uncovered burner wastes heat. And always use a lid when heating items on the stove for the same reason.

Beware the Rogue Plumbers!

Two winters ago was a very cold season for me… colder, I think, than it was for most. This was because my boiler was broken. I had no heating. And, when the weather outside is frightful, and there’s no fire to make it so delightful, you get cold, and miserable. So I went onto Google, found a cheap plumber and got him to come around. I paid him £60, he went up to my boiler, pressed the ‘reset’ button, it started making some noises again and temporarily came on again so, without doing any further testing, he left. The whole process took around a minute. He was probably at my flat for ten minutes, most of the time of which was spent looking for a ladder. Suffice to say, the boiler broke again very soon after he left, and he refused to give me a refund or come back and do the job properly. Unfortunately, not all workmen are as reliable as Bob The Builder or as cheerful as Luigi – some are simply out to get your money and provide as little in the way of service as is humanly possible. Just take a look at these rogues!

Blocked drain scam

Plumbers who charged a homeowner £14,400 to clear a blocked drain were in court this April. Two plumbers employed by Property Care Services in Hatfield were facing punishment, which could include prison terms. OAP Harold Stern, 83, called to report a blocked drain and was quoted the outrageous fee for the service – the disabled pensioner was given no choice but to accept this or face his drains remaining blocked. Evidence was also presented relating to earlier quotes that had been given to customers – in once case almost £5,000 was quoted for a blocked drain job, a job which should have cost no more than £942 to complete. The company claim that because they provide emergency, out of hours services, this allows them to charge higher prices, and stated that they had co-operated fully with the investigation carried out by Trading Standards.

Ongoing problem

But this isn’t the first case of rogue tradesmen taking advantage of older or vulnerable customers. It’s not just plumbers who are at fault – there have been cases of cowboy builders starting renovation work or fitting new kitchens for excited homeowners, leaving them with a huge bill to pay and unfinished, shoddy work. More needs to be done to regulate the industry and ensure that these rogue traders are no longer allowed to do business. The police receive hundreds of calls every day from vulnerable adults who have been targeted by scams or rogue traders trying to over-quote them or sell them services they don’t need! In many cases, these individuals are not even properly qualified to complete the work in question.

Hire a trusted tradesman

Use a website such as Trust a Trader or one of the many websites available which regulates tradesmen in your area to ensure you don’t fall foul of the rogue plumbers, builders and other workmen that are sadly still out there. Better still, take a recommendation from a friend or pick a small local firm with an excellent reputation to carry out your work – most firms will have references from previous satisfied customers available on their website, and you are well within your right to ask to see evidence of work they have completed, insurance certificates and qualifications before hiring them to start work on your home. At PPBS we hold customer care and excellence in service as the lynchpin of everything that we do. You are guaranteed a phenomenal service, to give you peace of mind.

Be a Good Example

Being a parent is a great opportunity to set a good example for future generations. What children learn growing up will stay with them the rest of their lives. Whether you are a parent, thinking about taking the plunge, or an important player in a child's life, you can leave a positive and lasting impression on a child and on the environment, too. Trying to lead a greener family life doesn't have to happen overnight. Parents can take a deep breath, tackle items or concerns one by one,and then get ready to improvise. If teenagers want to experience the outdoors and learn about the environment, they can participate in any program at the neighborhood. Some programs include helping maintain facilities or teaching and leading children, while others focus on sports and adventure. My 11-year-old son joined a football club here in our place, and I allow him to join a sport's club because it is summer school vacation, and it is better to play football with the other players than staying at the Internet cafe all day.

How to plan a home renovation

From regular do-it-yourself enthusiasts to brand new homeowners, renovating properties is an activity that everyone can undertake for themselves. But that doesn’t mean it will be a breeze. The key to planning a home renovation successfully is knowing what your timeline should look like and which challenges you are most likely to face. To find out what you should consider when planning your own home makeover, keep reading.



1. Get to know the lay of the land. Before you can begin to build or add on to the property that you have, it’s important to know what you’ll be working with. Do a survey of your property -- or at least the area to be renovated -- to find foundation problems that could have you retracing your footsteps if left for later. A building report or a measured survey carried out by a professional can give you clues as to what issues (if any) that the building has, such as dry rot, pests or leaky roofs.

2. Find out which consents you need for construction. You may need permits to carry out your work, depending on the nature and the size of your renovation project. It is important to do research with your local authority to find out if you need consents and which ones because they can take from several weeks to several months to secure. And if you are caught renovating without the proper consents, you could be forced to undo all of your hard work.

3. Take preventative measures. Make sure you have all the essential needs met for your renovation -- such as a working water line and electricity--before you start. You’ll also need to make sure the entire framework of the house or building that you’re working in is sound; it could require scaffolding or structural reinforcements before you begin your renovation. Skipping this step could lead to serious injury, not to mention a major setback of your renovation. Make sure to reinforce your structure to avoid the need to seek medical attention or medical advice.

4. Start demo work. Once you have all of these tasks checked off, you can begin demolition on your building. Try to save building elements that are in good condition or that give the building its character -- mainly, items like cabinets, doors, old but sturdy light fixtures or decorative hardware. You may be able to use these later, but everything else should be stripped and disposed of properly.

5. Renovate. It may seem odd that renovation is the last thing on your to-do list, but this is just a testament to how important it is to plan and properly prepare. But in the spirit of being a fore thinker, you’ll also need to make sure to put structures in place to prevent some of the most common home problems that can happen when a house begins to age, namely damp. This kind of thinking ahead will make sure that you not only have a successful renovation but that the results will last for years to come.

Happy Labor Day Philippines

Today is the first day of the month, and Philippines is celebrating the Labor Day today. The first Labor Day celebrations were held in the Philippines on May 1, 1903 in a huge rally in front of Malacanang Palace. I was one of those who asked economic rights for workers. Anyhow, when I opened Google this morning, this is their logo for today. Thanks Google for remembering our Labor Day.
