Summer Heat

We are finally having consistently warm days in the north east! But with consistent beautiful days, also comes consistent heat. I obviously own an air conditioner, but the bill can be high, and my body temperature is confusing (I get cold very easily). Getting a fan for your room is always an added bonus at…

A Living Mess

If you have kids at home, you must know how messy it can get, especially in your car. In between the food, random candy, and crumbs of artsy stuff, the car becomes a living mess, with the ickiest things getting in the hard to reach corners. We all love a super clean car, but cleaning…

A Fresh Start

Taking care of my facial skin has always been a challenge. Although I’m widely known for looking younger than my age, I still struggle with other things such as sensitivity and dryness. As I may have mentioned on previous blog posts, my skin is so sensitive that many products marketed for sensitive skin actually make…

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…

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…

Tonight

Working 60 hours a week, with the majority of the time facing a computer can be a pain in the ass… and in the neck too. I’m pretty young, and with my youth comes the hope that it will go away eventually or that youth will cure it all, but sometimes that is not the…
