Smooth Operator

We all have that one random cosmetic procedure that we are dying to try, but we put it off… either because it’s painful, too expensive, or simply too much work. For me, it has been laser hair removal. A professional hair removal service (on legs, for example) can cost an average of $500, and you…

It It Here Yet

It’s mid April… and here in the north east is still cold-ish and windy. Even so, I don’t lose hope and I’m gradually getting ready for summer and it’s multitude of activities. Whether it’s a family cookout, a marshmallow bonfire, camping, or football game, one of my concerns is finding a comfortable reclining chair. I…

The Roof Is On Fire… Or Not

As soon the market pops up with a new interesting concept, I’m the first one to buy it. Of course, don’t get me wrong, if this new concept won’t modify my life or add up to my routine in a meaningful way, I’m better off saving my money. One of my favorite things to shop…

Saving My Eyes Part I… or II… or M

I’m back with another amazing eye solution! If you have been following my blog from its beginnings, you may recall a few posts where I shared my burdening experience with chronic dry eyes. After my last post on the topic, a lot has happened. For example, I used Xiidra for 6 months, experienced many side…

Power Load

I’m not going to brag about how technologically advanced our times are (you already know that). However, you should keep in mind that our fantastic advancements and our access to cool gadgets come with additional needs and solutions. I’m probably one of the most “techquie” people you might know. With two iPhones, iPad, Smart TV’s,…

Major Nail-Over

New year, new saving strategies. I’m always at par with latest beauty trends, but since the economy doesn’t always scream “happy,” I had to figure out a few tricks so keep my budget on track. There’s nothing better than getting my nails done at the salon… I simply don’t have to worry about doing them!…

Little Italy In My Kitchen

You may recall a blog post where I discussed my crazy obsession with olive oil. I love the scent, its great benefits for your health (weight management, lower cholesterol, and improved cardiovascular function), hair and skin (for natural and effective moisture), and how amazingly tasty it can be. I also addressed that many supermarket brands…

Just A Little Aid

We all have something annoying that we have to deal with – in my case, it is my hair. In fact, I have a love/hate relationship with it. When I get my hair done, I love it, but the process into getting it to look great is a nightmare; it encompasses 1000000 styling products and…

USB Madness

I remember when I had my first iPhone (iPhone 4) – I was fascinated with the wonders of technology and how a single gadget could perform a multitude of tasks. If you can recall the earlier iPhone releases, you may remember that a model with 16gb was considered more than enough to store information and…

Hair Madness

This week I’m totally focusing on my hair. Although I’ve done a great job growing it long (with diet, vitamins, hair masks, less chemicals, etc.) I still struggle with a few things, such as frizz, dryness, and bleakness (you see the relationship here?). This week I invested in purchasing new styling tools to aid in…

Smoothing It Out

It takes me a lot of have a “good hair day.” My hair is very wild and very dry, so in between the split ends and the frizzies I have quite a difficult time looking like a decent human being (it is possible, but it is hard). I have to use 5+ products to style…

The Frost

Thanksgiving is in two days and it’s already freezing… and as the days pass by, I can only foresee how brutal this coming winter will be. As a child, I loved snow and all it’s perks, which included no school, hot chocolate with marshmallows, and playing around all day. As an adult, the role twisted,…
