It’s Fall And…

It’s officially the first day of fall and I’m beyond excited!! In between the warm apple teas, pre-thanksgiving pumpkin pie, and the increase in family reunions, my favorite thing is being able to redo my wardrobe for the coming cold months.

So far, I’ve gotten a hold of some fall essentials, such as a light trench jacket (in pink since pink is in this fall!) and a beige Calvin Klein scarf. And recently, to complete my look, I got a hold of Hotter Shoes’ Whisper boots.

There are so many things that I love about these boots. The boots have an amazing cut, meaning that these literally look great in leggings, skirts, and jeans. As a result, I can easily wear these in warmer and colder days. The inside of the boots have a faux fur lining, which keep my feet super comfortable and warm. The arc support is also fantastic (I have a very steep arc, so most shoes are very uncomfortable). The sole also had an amazing grip and its very flexible, meaning that I can walk over wet fall leaves and even snow without worrying about slippering.

The shoe box comes with a receipt, and return label, and a catalog containing some offers and discounts.

They have so many cute styles. What I love the most is that the styles provide so much comfort without the grandmother-look factor. Below, I included some of my favorite styles.

Just A Quickie

I have a very large family, and with that comes many things, including a bunch of electronics – all connected to my wifi.

With one million different things connected to my wifi, I noticed that my internet connection was gradually getting slower. On this phase, I was getting late emails, some things weren’t loading, and my smart tv was buffering all the time (specially when on Netflix and YouTube). Earlier this month, I decided to install a security camera system in my home, and that’s when everything went downhill. Not only was my internet signal terrible, but there was also a delay on my security camera image and recording, which was very annoying.

I did some research online on how I could speed-up my internet connection, and that’s when I figured that connecting a router to my wifi modem could be a solution. Soon enough I got a hold of Kasda wifi router. Before I go into the details, below I included a brief summary of the specs:

  • AC 1200 dual band
  • 5dBi high gain antennas
  • Brings its own cable modem
  • 8MB flash memory and 64MB ram
  • Frequency dual band 2.4ghz & 5ghz
  • 2.4ghz wifi guest networks

There are multiple things I love about this router. For example, it has a USB outlet which allows you to connect it directly to your computer. The router had a very easy setup, which is done directly on your smartphone. It brings a very detailed manual with all the specifics on the setup, so even if you’re not very “techquie” you’ll be able to set it up. My wifi signal is certainly way faster (it had 4 antennas for a greater reach!), and there’s no longer any delays on my security camera’s recording.

My Prerogative

I’m a total Apple junkie. I’ve owned every iPad and iPhone that has come out; from the 4 up to the 6 – and my amazement ended there.

As zombie-like it may seem, I loved the idea of getting a new iPhone every year due to the fresh perspective and technology, but it just hasn’t been the same anymore.

For me, the iPhone 6 was revolutionary as it provided a larger screen, a Plus model, and faster technology. But then came the iPhone 6s, with the only revolutionary change being the 3D Touch. For me, this wasn’t significant enough to upgrade to the iPhone 6s, especially after considering what most tech experts claimed, “These changes were possible on any iPhone model with a simple software update.”

Then came the iPhone 7: not only does it look pretty similar to the 6, but now it lacks a headphone jack. We know that an adapter is a viable solution; however, carrying a bunch of adapters seemed counterproductive for me as I want feasibility and things that will make my life easier, instead of having to carry extra tools, extra wires, extra things…

With all these insignificant upgrades, and being stuck with the iPhone 6, I was super excited and so looking forward to today’s Apple event, as I was hoping for innovation and finally being able to upgrade my iPhone (yes I’m having difficulty considering a phone brand that isn’t Apple).

The iPhone 8 is finally announced, and again, it is a model that looks like the iPhone 6, except for the materials and maybe the variation of colors. And of course, like it’s previous model, it doesn’t have a headphone jack, which to me is an epic fail. Apple allows engravings or personalization in most, if not all gadgets available for sale- why not make headphone jacks an optional features for buyers, especially if it so widely present in many technological gadgets today? Even so, I was considering the idea of getting the 8, until I learned about its all glass body… this means that my iPhone is at a greater risk of breaking. Nevertheless, this all glass body allows wireless charging, which isn’t a free feature of course – you are obligated to pay over $245 for the charger, and not using an Apple branded one kicks you out of warranty. And then there’s the iPhone X, “innovative” I thought, but I won’t pay $1000 for a phone I will be replacing annually, even if I can afford it. On top of that, I hate the idea of not having a home button. I would now have to stare at my screen to unlock it (facial recognition) which isn’t suitable in situations where you want to unlock your iPhone secretively, which I’m able to with the fingerprints on the iPhone 6. And to add to my concern, without a home button, there hasn’t been any mention of how people will be able to take screenshots on their phones.

Yes, we have to agree that the iPhone have other technological features, speeds, processors, and other advances that are exciting and useful. However, with the new physical features (of lack of thereof), I feel that I have more to lose by upgrading.

Healthy Vibes

img_3536A healthy body and mind is very important for a healthy functioning. I try to take yoga classes and eat a healthy diet as often as I can, but sometimes our own efforts need an extra boost – that’s when we have to start considering supplements.

The supplement market is very vast. There is a multitude of options and health claims for a multitude of conditions, and sadly, many times these claims are not true.

Although I have a healthy body (healthy sugar levels, cholesterol, steroid levels, etc.) there were many things in my body that needed extra help. For example, I was hungry often, constantly dealt with brittle nails and hair, very dry skin, a lack of nutrients, etc.

I tried many supplements for the months to come, and it wasn’t until I incorporated Natrogix Green Superfood Powder that I started seeing true changes in my body.

This container brings a serving for 30 days; however, I’m often able to extend it for close to 40 days.

Processed with MOLDIV

This supplement is protein based, and a single serving contains the equivalent of 7 servings of fruits and vegetables. It also contains vitamins, minerals, antioxidant, healthy enzymes, and probiotics.

Apart from the benefits above, it also helps by strengthening your immune system, cleansing the body from free radicals and toxins, it enhances digestive health by improving nutrient absorption and relieving bloating, and the best of all – it is 100% vegan!

Some of its ingredients include barley grass, spinach, wheat grass, alfalfa, moringa, goji berry, macca, beet, broccoli, pineapple, watermelon, raspberry, and more. The combination of ingredients also have vitamins A, C, and K, niacin, riboflavin, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and much more.

There are many things that I love about this supplement. For example, a single serving is super filling, meaning that I’m able to replace a snack or even snack less throughout the day, which has helped me get rid of few extra inches. The serving of protein has been a great replacement for protein smoothies (whey protein is expensive, so I have been able to save some money). I definitely have x2 more energy, I’m less moody, and my nail and hair are less brittle (I started noticing the hair/nail changes after two months of use).

I think this is a fantastic solution at a great affordable price – you should definitely check it out!

Shine Bright Like A Diamond

I’m obsessed with jewelry (who isn’t, right?) And with my obsession comes an immense collection of rings, bracelets, and earrings.

With prolonged wear these can get stained, and I always seek quick solutions to clean them, such as baking soda, ketchup, and even toothpaste.

These were doing and okay job, but I still wanted something that would make everything shine, so I started researching some cleaners that would do the job without being so abrasive (I was afraid of damaging my jewelry)… that’s where I came across Quick ‘N Brite Jewelry Cleaner.

The cleaner is odorless, which I think is fantastic, and it has a very light soapy feel. This cleaner can virtually clean anything – gold, silver, opal, diamonds, you name it.

The instructions state to simply soak your jewelry in the solution for 3 minutes, then wash with hot water. If you need a deeper clean, then soak an additional 3 minutes and wash again.

These results were great – my jewelry was super bright and the tones looked as new.

I also liked that it wasn’t abrasive on my fingers – the ingredients in this cleaner are free of chemicals, abrasives, and are 100% biodegradable.

Overall and item that everyone should have in their household.

Most of us have an elderly loved one in our families; in my case, it is my grandmothers.

Regardless of their age, they always seek to stay active, as they preach that an active lifestyle leads to a long life. After so many years of adventure and the birth of multiple children, they deal with a few physical constraints here and there, including leakage.

I speak about this openly for so many reasons, including the fact that our bodies are a reflection of our story; therefore, leakage tells the story of a life well-lived and the birth of loving children.

I’ve sought many solutions to help them out, some more comfortable than others, but not optimal. Then I came across Wearever underwear and put them to the try.

There are many things that they loved about it, including the fact that these are so comfortable and look like regular underwear. I personally think that’s the greatest asset, the fact that the underwear is stylish (by the way, they also make underwear for men).

Due to the success in my family, I decided to get a pair myself (for those comprising days, AKA periods) and I love these a lot. As I mentioned, these are very comfortable, easy to wash (it can last close to 300 washes or so), the heavy protection is so great that nothing leaks through, the comfort level is superb, and these are super discrete.

Whether it’s for a loved one or yourself, I think these are worth the shot.

I’m also following them on social media to stay current with new products and potential offers.
