#GoodHealth : Greatest Treasure of All

For me, good health is the greatest treasure of all. If one is healthy, happiness flows easy. There is no greater gift than good health. I always pray to God for good health of my family because no matter how I work hard, it will be nothing when someone gets sick. I also asked God to bless me with good health always so I can work and support my family. How about you? Would you agree that good health is the greatest treasure of all? Anyway, do you have a health insurance? If you are looking for health insurance quotes in nc , you might check this out.

You Can't Please Everybody

"You can't please everybody so, cheer up!"

When you are feeling down and no one can cheer you up, just get up and live life. Surround yourself with good influence people and have a positive attitude. Shake that negativity out of your life and everything will be alright.

#Mainstays #BathSet with Memory Foam Rugs

I was tired looking at my bathroom curtain so; I went to #Walmart and look for a new set. I like the curtain alright but, I just need a new one and a new color. Besides, I was also planning to buy a bathroom rug. First, I check out the rug and what I like was so expensive then I found this product. This is a #Mainstays brand and really affordable. I bought this for less than $20. The color? Nope, I do not like it but, this is the lighter color amongst the display.

For $20, this is a great buy. The set includes a shower curtain, 12 shower curtain and 2 memory foam bath rugs. So far, I like it and I am sure you'll like it too. Right now, I am again looking for a new bathroom curtain set for Christmas.
 
I am actually doing an online shopping for many days now and hopefully I can find the design and color that I want.

Make Your Own #Silk

Well, that's what I read on their booth. If you have been to an art show before, you probably seen this type of display. I stopped and observed how this artwork transferred to the fabric. It was cool actually! This is very creative and free hands-on learning for kids too.

This booth is just one of the many interesting art exhibit and display that I find most compelling and fascinating during the #PeterAndersonFestival in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. One scarf which this young lady created for herself is worth $30.
 
It is not about the money right? If the kid enjoys being creative in designing her own scarf, $30 is worth it. I think she is with her grandma.
 
See the fabric display on top? That's the finish product. It is beautiful and yap, each design is different all the time. He asked the young girl what color she likes and he added the chosen colors on the liquid component. One drop each time. The colors spread around it and the girl will play on the color using a straw eventually creating a design. When she's done, the man put the length of the fabric on top of the colors and in second, all the colors will transfer to the fabric making it a scarf with awesome design.
 
Pretty cool huh? Anyway, this is a great business from home to start with right? You do it! Good luck!
 
I tried to look for a signage to advertized this man's business but, didn't see it. Anyway, he probably lives around here in the Gulf coast area. If you see him, please do support his business will you?

All Souls' Day Observance

Did you go to the cemetery to visit your loved ones? Here in the US, they do not have this type of observance or commemoration for the dead. Today is just an ordinary day. My husband actually plan to visit his dad at the cemetery today but, when we were there at the Ocean Springs, he forgot. I did too. Anyway, after work tomorrow, I will remind him.

I was browsing photos of the cemetery in the Philippines and I thought, how lucky they were (the dead) that their relatives, family and friends offered, lighted candles and say their prayers for them. Somewhere and someone out there were forgotten souls. How sad and lonely can it be! Some families spent a night or two at the cemetery and brought food to feast on. All Soul's Day in the Philippines is a holiday for family gatherings and be with their dead loved ones. We do remember our departed family and friends today.

How about you? Do you say a prayer for your departed loved ones?

Having a Facial Spa at #MassageEnvy

Today, I went to my appointment for a #Murad facial spa. Oh my goodness ... it was a relaxing and a soothing session. I have an hour session but, I think it lasted longer. My Esthetician perform an excellent job. She's skilled in her profession and she made me feel relax. I didn't know that I will get a bonus massage so; it feels great.

After the session, I decided to sign up for a membership at Massage Envy so I can enjoy a spa treatment every month. On my next session, I will try the Deep Tissue Massage and I plan to treat my husband too. For him, I choose the reflexology and I think, he will love that.
 
I can't wait for my next appointment. I am sure I will enjoy it a lot.

The lines are still there but, unnoticeable. The texture is creamy and I like that when I apply it on my face, it doesn't feel greasy, sticky or dry. I only use this product before bedtime and it works very well.

Youphoria #YogaMat


Of all the many products that I received for review purposes, this yoga mat is one of my favorites simply because it exceeded my expectation. From packaging to the quality of the product, I am just thrilled to have it. Impressive packaging got me really. Anyone who will order this product online will be thrilled and satisfied because this yoga mat is simply beautiful. Shipping and handling is excellent!

The Yoga Mat

This is my second yoga mat and I chose the color blue because it is the symbol for peace and relaxation. I need that symbol to reflect on me. Once in a while I do yoga poses and meditation especially when I am down and feeling low. Yoga makes me relax and when I do yoga,  it has become my stress reliever. When this product arrived, I used it right away. I can tell that the product is made of quality material. I like the fact that this product is latex-free and a SGS approved. One feature that I really like is the two-sided feature which make it so unique compared to my first yoga mat. The other side holds excellent on the floor and the other side is for me to do my yoga meditation poses. This yoga mat stays in place from the beginning of my yoga activity to the end.

This yoga mat is very soft because it is made of premium 1/4 memory foam. I really like this mat. I have a wonderful time using this. When I step on it, my feet seemed to sink in and bounced. I love the texture too.

The size is great! This is probably a jumbo because I have all the spaces that I need for my stretching. Also, this yoga mat is odor-free and free from toxins. I love that.

#Exfolimate : Face and Body Exfoliation


I must admit that at first, I was passive about this body tool. What can it do? As we strive in aiming to have that soft and silky skin,  we knew that shortcuts are not an option. We exercise, eat the right food and we take dietary supplements. We also buy body tools that will help exfoliate our tired skin just like this face and body exfoliation set from Exfolimate.

This product is designed in Australia and that's probably the reason why I haven't seen or heart about this stuff. This face and body exfoliation set includes 2 pieces of exfoliator tools, one for the body and one for the delicate skin, the face. As you can see on the photo above, the packaging is beautiful. It includes the tool set and the orange wrist straps as well as the direction/guide on how to safely use the tool. I advice you that if you buy this tool, you should read the direction first before your first try. 
 
I like the fact that this tool instantly exfoliate and clarify the pores without scrubbing my skin. As I was using it, there is a sensation as if it massages my skin and gently released the dirt and oils stuck in the pores of my skin. It’s as if the blood in my veins circulates well every time I run the smooth metal edge on my skin. After the shower, my skin felt relax and fresh. Using this product in the shower daily probably will improve the tone and texture of the skin.

Product Description:
• Provides deeper cleansing, enhanced exfoliation and superior moisturization
• Cleanses, refreshes and revives skin
• Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• Leaves skin feeling softer and looking brighter
• Improves skin tone and texture
• Reduces dry spots and oily patches
• Increases the absorption of skin care products
• Safe for all skin types

Sticky Suction Car Mount : #iGotTech

The photo below was taken when we drove down the Beach Boulevard by the Gulf coast in Biloxi. The husband and I were excited to try the sticky suction car mount. The product is nicely pack and was delivered in perfect condition. It arrived on time as what was provided on the order information. So far, the shipping and handling is perfect.

I read the manual before using it and technically, this suction stand will stick on any smooth surface. It did when I used it on the table. The support rod holds my iPad and the sticky pad works well. There was no sticky glue when I take off my iPad from the Sticky Suction Stand which was really nice. The back of my iPad was safe and clean. The suction button is perfect, really holds it well.

Since the dashboard on the car is not smooth, the sticky suction car mount doesn't work at all. It works perfect when I stick it on the window. It holds very well and I was impressed. When I stick my iPad, it only lasted for few minutes and it fell. It cannot hold the weight of my iPad as we were driving. The movement of the car probably loosen the grip of the sticky pad. I tried listening to Pandora music using my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 too and at first, it was perfect. The problem is, It will not last an hour and my phone kept falling. The iPhone is lighter so; the sticky suction mount holds it just fine.

Over all, I think I will just use this sticky suction stand on my bedside table. It works perfect in there. My gadgets will be safe if I stick it on a stable surface. By the way, this sticky suction stand is gorgeous, quality made and I love the design.

Heavy Duty #CaulkGun


Between the husband and I, everyone knows that I am the handy worker in the house. The tools that we have in the shed mostly are mine. I love tools and doing #DIY is an ordinary activity for me. I love to assemble bed frame, big book cases, computer table, outdoor table and outdoor grills. When a product delivered in flat boxes, I get excited and it never occurred to me that stuff like that could be intimidating. I can do so much. Since I am petite, of course the husband is my helper and for heavy stuff, he usually helps out. I can't do it without his help.

Anyway, I was given the opportunity to review the Caulk Gun via Tomoson site. This is from Quality Source Product #caulkgun. When I received it few weeks ago, I was truly thrilled. We still have things to do in the house and caulking is just one of them. We have two caulking guns at home and of course, using a new one is my preference.

Every household should own a caulk gun. We might take for granted it but, this tool is important to get the work done neatly. This caulk gun is no different with my old caulking guns. This works perfect the whole time. Since I already know how to use them, it's that easy to get started. This is a simple tool and easy to use. This product is heavy duty contractor grade and features smooth application. It has a comfortable grip rotating barrel for precise placement. Caulking is no sweat at all! You can buy this product at Amazon today.

Electric Bass Guitars

Do you know anyone with Baritone type of voice? Have you heard the voice of Carlos Marin of Il Divo group? I love this group. You should listen to their music sometime. Bass, the low frequency tone is nice to hear too. Oh, you would fall in-love to the music of IL Divo for sure.

Some of my friends have low range voices but, when they sing, it jive perfectly in great harmony. Anyway, I was browsing guitars and look what I found: ibanez electric bass and these guitars are so gorgeous looking.

Walking on Biloxi Bay Bridge

I can't remember how many miles that Biloxi Bay Bridge has but, I walked on this bridge one way and it took me 40 minutes and I have no strength to walk back so; I called my husband to pick me up at Golden Nugget hotel and casino.

Well, I started on the beach front too plus the bridge length, it was really tiring. I posted a video in my Instagram HERE and you can see how far I covered for walking. I am trying to lose this love handle of mine hahaha. Oh, I did try bicycling on the bridge as well. It was awesome! From Golden Nugget, on the bridge and on the Front Beach of Ocean Springs, Mississippi. From one city to the the other city. It was cool huh?

Road Trips and Music

While we were driving to Florida, I was using my Pandora app to listen to music. Well, I don't have a great signal all the time and it was frustrating. All our gadgets have limited files of music and it's my fault though. I was too lazy to download songs and I always rely on my Mobile WiFi. In road trips, it's not good at all.


Funny that I took for granted simple stuff like that. Things like sports armband, roland cymbal mount, charger mount etc which are not necessary at a given time and eventually will be important in a unique situation. Anyway, I was kind of hoping that we renew our Satellite Radio account because it's the best for road trips. Well, we might do that.

#Excedrin : Relief Comes Quick

It's weekend once again which other people are looking forward to. Not me. Considering that I stay at home and work at home, everyday is the same. Nothing to look forward to really. Can't even tell which day it is LOL. Unlike before, when I was working, I really wanted to pull the weekend to relax and have a "me time" without thinking about work. Honestly, I like the latter, working and waiting for day-off. Anytime, after selling the condo in Orlando, I will start looking for a job.

So today, I woke up feeling sick. I feel that my eyes were heavy and felt an excruciating pain. I know that migraine will attack soon. I don't want to be sick this week so; I took 1 tablet. I slept and rest for two hours and when I woke up, I was so hungry and the pain ... gone. Thanks to #Excedrin. The relief comes quick!

Insurance Gives Us Full Refund

Do you own a property? How about cars and appliances? How do you protect what you own?

It is best that whatever things you own, especially the most expensive ones you should purchase an insurance. Twice that happens to us, insurance saves us big-time. The appliances we bought broke after a year and since we bought the insurance, we were refunded with the full amount saving us almost $700.

There are sites that give out quotes so; the choice is yours according to how you can afford to pay. Take a look at don allred insurance quotes to have an idea.

#HelloKeurig : #Keurig 2.0 - K550 is Here

When #Influenster sent me an email saying "I'm In", I was truly overjoyed! Then my excitement went a notch higher when I realized that they are sending me the latest model of #Keurig coffee maker! Well, #HelloKeurig !This product is one my most favorite #freebies simply because I do like and admire this innovative and smart machine. I finally own one and I am so happy about it!

The husband was waiting anxiously and when FedEx parked outside the house, he was there to received it with a grin on his face. The huge box arrived in perfect condition and we were both extremely excited to check what's inside the box. The most awaited part was brewing the K-Carafe. Of course, there was a little bit of assembly to do. Super easy! Besides, there is the manual that's easy to follow. I happily set up my new #Keurig in few minutes.

When I shared my joys of having a new Keurig 2.0 in my Instagram, one liker said that this machine will not work with K-cups. I corrected the liker that this Keurig 2.0 is the FIRST brewing system that can brew a cup (single cup) and a carafe (4 cups). Isn't that exciting? One touch and it reads each portion pack perfectly! That is a smart innovation from Keurig. That's perfect brew every time!


The Keurig 2.0 - K550 is sold for $199.99.

Features:

Extra Large 80 oz. Water Reservoir
In the box, the filter pack is sealed and after following the simple instructions, I was able to put together the filter into the water reservoir. I added water above the minimum level and I'm all set to brew anytime I want.
 
- Large Color Touch Display
The color display has 4 colors to choose from (red, white, blue and green) and I set mine to the latter color since I love green. The display will show the time with Analog or Digital choices.

- Programmable Clock
The time can either be set in 12 hr or 24 hr and easy to set.

- Strength Control
This is a smart machine since coffee lovers can now choose a strong coffee with one touch. Using the K-cup, there are 4 sizes to select from: 4, 6, 8, and 10 oz. I can live with a cup each brew time but, I choose the 10 oz.

- Hot Water on Demand
One touch and I get to enjoy a cup of hot water using my Keurig 2.0.

- Customizable Night-Light in Water Reservoir
I love the fact that I can use the water reservoir of my Keurig 2.0 as night light and with 4 colors to choose from.

- Water Filter Handle and Cartridge
Easy to assemble.


Testing to brew using the Keurig 2.0 - K550 is fun especially when they include the following:

Starter Carafe

- A Water Filter Starter kit and a Filter

- Variety of 6 K-Cup® Packs
I was truly delighted that the package includes K-cups and the flavors are : Italian Roast, Donut House Coffee, Nantucket Blend, English Breakfast, Pike Place Roast and Hazelnut.
 
2 K- Carafe™ Packs
I received sets of 4 with the following varieties : Green Mountain Coffee French Roast , Breakfast Blend and French Vanilla; and The Original Donut Shop Regular. The other box has 8 packs of French Roast, a Green Mountain Coffee brand.

I've been using my Keurig 2.0 - K550 since the day it arrived and been using the coffee they included in the box. So far, I am thrilled and contended.

What's new with Keurig 2.0 ?
It brews a K-cup as well as K-Carafe. This brewing system is the first to brew both types of packs. Let's be honest, if you have the older systems which can only do one function at a time, wouldn't it be great to own one of this new innovation? Not only that, the Keurig 2.0-K550 is designed to read the lid of each packs to brew the perfect beverage every time. Now, that's a smart brewing system!


To sum it up, since this is my first Keurig coffee maker, I truly love it. In the kitchen, we have stainless steel appliances and Keurig 2.0 design is a perfect compliment; so gorgeous and sexy. I am hoping that as I continue to use this machine, I will be able to find my favorite coffee and other beverages in K-cups and K-Carafe.
