Amazing Things at Watercamp Resort

| 24 October 2013
Nowadays, many people find it fulfilling to share their thoughts on travel, food and other interesting topics. The Internet became a massive sharing field for all people across the globe. To cope up with the hype, I decided to blog about my favorite travel destinations, food trips and fashion decisions. In this post, let's talk about the amazing things at Watercamp Resort in Cavite. Of all Cavite resorts, the place is considered unique with its beautifully designed wave pool.



There are two important things that are considered amazing at Watercamp Resort. First, the accommodation facilities are stunning. The guests are free to choose between the standard rooms, family de luxe rooms and the family villas. Two to three persons may choose to enjoy a standard room while the family de luxe room is perfect for a small family. For larger groups of guests, the family villa is highly recommended.


Second, the resort has amazing swimming pools. It has six swimming pools for the guests such as Mini Wave Pool, Kidney-shaped pool with slides, 16-meter Lazy River, Children's Interactive Pool, Dunk Pool for 2 level slides and adult pool. Obviously, many people love the wave pool. Lastly, the food in the resort is also delicious.

There are many physicians who are inspired to learn more about the treatment to keep up with the demands of their clients.



The role of Sharjah University Laser Training and Research Center in providing laser in dermatology course to physicians and allied health professionals is very essential.

The Pink House Effect

| 10 May 2013
The best ways to enjoy the Information Age is to find photos of the things that we've been hoping for. In my case, I search for photos of my favorite cars, shopping havens, fashion items and even houses. Recently, I gave another round of looking at pink house photos. In this post, let me share with you an amazing photo of a pink house that I've discovered in a realty blog.


Do you like colorful houses? I know that my husband won't approve a pink-hued house, but I'm really attracted with this one. The ceiling matched with the exterior color and the veranda. There's an attic and the design is unique. It seemed that all spaces are useful. What do you think?

Shaving routine and badger brush

| 28 March 2013
I'm lucky to know a lot of business owners who are willing to send products for review. Last month, I received some beauty products to try at home. I also received a shaving kit, including a badger brush. Obviously, my husband really liked it. It's really awesome to be a blogger. What do you think?

Being a blogger gave me opportunities to learn beauty techniques that I've never known before. I had a chance to try products that are eco-friendly, including a set of soaps for whiter skin. On the other hand, I've learned the perfect shaving products for my husband. He's been following the old-fashioned way of shaving so it wasn't hard to shop products for him. When I received an after-shave cologne for review, I let him do the job. Based on his experiences, I wrote the review with amazing tips for the readers.



What do you think about shaving creams, brushes and colognes that are sold online? I really want to know some people who usually buy shaving kits through the Internet since I'm doing the same for too long. Perhaps, I can learn some techniques to save cash and then purchase the best products for me and my husband.

Currently, I'm also preparing an article about badger brushes. I'm still on the rough draft stage since I want to research on the different kinds of brushes for shaving routine. There are websites with personal care topics so I'm still choosing the best sources for the article.

I'm really happy that my husband liked the products that I purchased online for him. He liked the after-shave colognes that I bought for him. But I'm still looking for the best shaving creams since he wanted something made of natural ingredients.

Do you have shaving ideas to share? Let me know in the comments section.

Don't give up

|
I would like to share an important lesson in life that I've learned last week. I thought I can't go on with my plans since funds are slowly depleting. Fortunately, I was given a chance to go on as planned with His guidance.



Don't give up on yourself. Your dreams are more important than quitting. I've tried to let go of my plans and stay in my comfort zone, but it's not really good. Hence, I choose to be grateful of what I have and move on with confidence that everything will be just fine.

Internet Marketing and Enterprise seo with Orangesoda

|
Have you heard about the latest news on Internet marketing today? I failed to check my favorite news websites about search engine optimization so I'm hoping I can read some updates in my favorite blogs. Currently, I'm busy reading about enterprise seo with orangesoda and other related topics. Obviously, I want to learn more ways to promote our real estate websites to increase sales this month.

I have a testimony that Internet marketing is an important part of promoting websites for business. Without the help of skilled Internet marketers, business owners will find it hard to compete in the market. Many entrepreneurs are busy dealing with people who can perform a top-notch search engine optimization campaign. It's true that we can't ignore the way people purchase online and it's our responsibility to cope up with the sudden changes of selling strategies.



Last month, we've decided to hire a local Internet marketing team to promote our websites. We had less sales last month due to stiff competition. Our competitors use state-of-the-art search engine optimization techniques so we thought we're left behind in the trail of realty business. Hence, we hired a team that will help us go along with the current trend in home buying.

Because of our combined endeavors, we noticed increase of sales last week. That was a huge accomplishment on our part since in-house marketing staff of developers were sprouting left and right to compete with us. While the local marketers perform their tasks, we did more promotions on our part through social networking sites. It's a two-way process that will engage future buyers to read our offers.

It's indispensable to use the Internet to sell properties these days. If you find it hard to sell units, don't hesitate to try hiring Internet marketers to help you in the process of offering properties for sale.  By the way, this is a sponsored post. However, all the points and views are my own.

Realty Business and Homes for Sale by Schwartz

|
The beauty in real estate business is the opportunity to see different kinds of property. I've visited hundreds of developed areas for free and with a salesperson to guide me about each unit. Because of the latest technological development, I learned about investment techniques with the real estate industry. One of the most amazing investment techniques that I've learned is the short sale process. Being exposed with Homes for Sale by Schwartz, I want to share my thoughts on short sale in this post. But before I talk about the process of short sale, I'll share some tips on hiring a lawyer.

In a short sale transaction, hiring a lawyer is necessary. The attorney will help the buyer assess the property. On the other hand, the seller will be guided by the lawyer once the short sale transaction is started. Just choose an attorney that is experienced in cases about the real estate industry.


Image | Real Estate

Many owners of property, when faced with financial constraints, choose short sale over a full-blown foreclosure case. Basically, a foreclosure proceeding is more expensive than a short sale process. It's also difficult to handle and needs more time to complete. No wonder many people prefer going through a short sale than foreclosure.

The idea of selling a property in a lowered price is perfect for those who can't pay a mortgage debt. Although the debtor can't be absolved with the debt, he or she will have the chance to pay in accordance with the sale of the property. On the other hand, the buyer will have an opportunity to own a property that is affordable. I think that it's one way of accumulating real estate properties on budget. It's a leverage for business owners that can't be ignored these days.

Personally, I'm planning to purchase properties through short sale transactions. It's beneficial to both the seller and the buyer with the help of an experienced lawyer. For those who are in the real estate business, you don't need to spend more money to grow your investment portfolio. By just going into the trade of short sale, you'll have more properties to purchase in lower prices.

Are you planning to buy properties through short sale? I'll be glad if you'll share comments about it.

Collectables and Fashion Accessories

| 26 March 2013
I had an amazing start of the year for 2013. My husband and I attended seminars for financial education with some ideas on Internet business. However, I'm really grateful for the lessons I've learned in collecting items with high value. The seminar has something to do with investment and saving money. Personally, I like the idea of collecting valuable paintings, fashion accessories, collector items and other products with increasing value. Then, I remember the fabulous pieces posted at Collectables for people who love to collect stunning products and personal items. 

 In my fashion blog, I've written about my collections of fashion accessories and clothing pieces from shopping districts and thrift stores. I have tons of bracelets, necklaces and bangles. Before I traveled to the southern part of the country last month, I bought ten pieces of rare necklaces and two pieces of purple-hued bangles. At that time, I was busy preparing for my vacation clothes based on the style I prefer for the trip. In addition, I also create my own fashion accessories at home. I have collections of sparkling beads, hooks and tools for the project. My inspiration in creating the said items came from amazing websites of collector items and online shopping havens.

I also collect different kinds of bags. My very first collection is a lovely tote bag made of native materials. When I was in high school, I borrow bags from my classmates and study the design of each bag. Then, I look for bags that has the same style but in different colors. After finding the perfect replica, I placed it in my room for safekeeping. There are many stylish bags in thrift stores, too. Every Friday, I buy one sling bag to spice up my Sunday look. That's how I prepare for my weekend outfits.

The Benefits of Drinking Fruit Juices

| 14 March 2013
I'm really excited to share about the benefits of drinking fruit juices. I've written about the healths benefits of juices before, but I want to emphasize on its importance in this post. If you're familiar with xango and other popular juice products, you'll be amazed of the way people take advantage of technology for good health. In other words, we're also invited to learn more about the benefits of drinking fruit juices and stay healthy.



My inspiration for learning about good health habits is the advantage of having a healthy lifestyle. Today, I learned that my Aunt had a disease that has changed her life. Taking her condition as an example, I always think to follow proper eating habits. Life is exciting and I want to maximize my stay on earth to enjoy it.

Here are the benefits of fruit juices. First, fresh fruit juices provide minerals, vitamins and fatty acids necessary for good health. Sometimes people fail to realize the advantages of fruit juices in attaining healthy skin. To have an increased energy, don't forget to include fruit juices in your diet. Second, fruit juice is perfect to have stronger bones. My favorite fruit juice is mango and I'm sure I'll have stronger bones and healthy body by drinking it regularly. There are times that I crave on mangosteen fruit juices. Thankfully, a friend usually invites me to eat in a dining place that serve mangosteen fruit juice. Third, fruit juices will ensure a high fiber diet. It will aid the digestion process, too.

I'm really interested in having a glowing complexion. No wonder I like drinking fruit juices. Since it has a natural moisturizing agents, your skin will have the perfect glow.

These days, the usual problem of many people is lack of a balanced diet. Our food intake is usually not enough. Even though we eat a lot of food and drink fluids, we fail to get all the vitamins and minerals that our bodies really need. That's why it's necessary to drink fruit juices as supplements. Some companies have been developing products that will enhance one's health. Are you excited to know more about it? By the way, this is a sponsored post. However, all the points and views are my own.

I was lucky to experience a smooth travel last week. The weather is wonderful. I'm only carrying two bags and there are only few passengers. On my way to the southern part of the country, I booked a ticket for the journey via Cebu Pacific flight services.

One of my favorite photos is that of an island. It's very beautiful. I can see that it's a clean place. I wonder what's the name of the island.

Travel blogging and yard signs

| 08 March 2013
As a travel blogger, I always visit unknown places. I’m always thrilled going to places I’ve never been before. Most of the time, I can see memorable yard signs, feather flags and parks that have given an impact in my life. I also had a chance to visit a place that’s really perfect for nature lovers.


Travel is a very exciting activity, especially if you’ve found the perfect place to unwind. Along the way, you can spot stunning view of trees, mountains and some bodies of water. It’s my habit to take photos while in transit since it’s really thrilling to do. Some of my travel photos were taken while in car or in an airplane.

Many readers of this blog asked me about solo travel. It’s a topic that I really like. Basically, hitting the road alone is interesting. You’ll learn many things as you immerse yourself of the place that you’ve visited without any companion.

There are many ways to make a solo travel memorable. Don’t hesitate to ask if you can take photos of interesting objects, places and people. In documenting your travel, don’t forget yard signs, museums, beaches and popular establishments. There are people who would ask you about the said places and you will have evidences of your visit.
                       
It’s also necessary to be friendly with the locals. They will guide you in traveling to nearby tourist spots. I’ve experienced a memorable travel escapade with the help of a local tourist guide. The service is truly affordable and personalized. Who wouldn’t want to do it if you’re alone? You’ll be assured that someone will guide you in your trip. In most cases, you’ll meet other solo travelers.

To keep your trip memorable, don’t forget to buy souvenirs. Aside from helping the locality you’ve visited, you’ll have pieces of remembrance in every area.

Knowing more about Rotorooter and Plumbing Services

| 28 February 2013
In our home, there are many memorable experiences that gave me important lessons in homemaking. I learned to keep the lawn clean and fully-maintained regularly. In terms of interior design, I see to it that I was able to change the theme of the house every four months. Because of some friends, I became acquainted with the best ways to avoid clogging in the kitchen sink. However, time came that the drainage system of our home needed to be fixed. It was my mother's birthday celebration last year and the holiday season was fast approaching. At that time, I was really grateful of a plumber. I became familiar with Roto-Rooter experts and the way they handle every need of a customer. It was impressive!

we had these grilled banana for snack time :)

Before seven in the morning, my mother and I gathered all the ingredients of the dishes that we're going to prepare. We made sure that we had everything in the kitchen. My brother and sisters love eating fruits, so we decided to prepare fruit salad for dessert. Our drinks is chilled juice from crushed tropical fruits. Basically, we want to prepare French and Italian fare. My mother love spaghetti and I like to have some mashed potatoes in the menu. On the other hand, other members of the family like grilled pork so my father has been assigned to prepare the grilled pork and fish recipes.

By the time we completed the fish fillet recipe, my mother instructed me to prepare the pasta for the spaghetti. After preparing it, I decided to rinse the pasta in the kitchen sink. Well, the faucet went crazy and it showered all over the place! I'm not aware of it and caught by surprise of the defect. My mother just laughed it off and called my father to fix the faucet. Coincidentally, my father is already finished with grilled dishes so he volunteered to call a plumber. We thought he could fix it himself but we found out that the defect of our drainage system is worst this time.

The plumber arrived fifteen minutes, just in time for lunch. We know that it's a holiday but we're grateful that he granted our request. He fixed the drainage system and the faucet skillfully. He enjoyed the job and completed it as experts do. Personally, I'm grateful for his professionalism and ability to fix it within the given time frame. After he completed the task, we finished our cooking assignments before dinner.

My Thoughts on Homemaking, Plumbing and local Rotorooter

| 22 February 2013
Every person has a way of creating beautiful things to have an enthusiastic life. Even though things are sometimes limited, many people think of ways to maximize what they have and solve every problem with ease. No wonder being resourceful is one of the most important characteristics of a human being. In this post, I would like to share about patience and resourcefulness at home. Let me also share with you some of my experiences on plumbing concerns, which will inspire you to know more about local Rotorooter services.

I've read in a blog post that being resourceful in homemaking is fun. The blogger don't have funds to purchase home decor. To solve the dilemma, she gathered materials to design her own ornaments. Within one day, she was able to make a decoration for the porch and front door by using used materials. She used an old umbrella and placed it with stunning flowers made of plastic and used laces in order to create a bouquet for the front door. I know you'll be amazed of what she did for homemaking purposes.

on our way to the resort :)

In another blog post, I also found a way to decorate the living room using old materials. You can create a beautiful home decor by gathering a pair of old boots, different kinds of artificial flowers and laces. To create some fabulous homemade flower vases, place the artificial in the two old boots and tie it with colorful laces. The finished products can be placed in both sides of the front door.

Lastly, I would like to talk about plumbing experiences. Earlier last year, we had a vacation in a beautiful resort. The travel time to the vacation resort is six hours. Upon arrival, we decided to just use the kitchen to prepare our food for the one-week stay in the vacation house. Then, my mother checked the cooking materials. She discovered that there's something wrong with the faucet. So my brother called a nearby plumber to fix the faucet. Thankfully, he helped us solve the problem. We're really grateful of the plumber at that time.

By the way, this is a sponsored post. However, all the points and views are my own.

"A short sale is often used as an alternative to foreclosure because it mitigates additional fees and costs to both the creditor and borrower. Both often result in a negative credit report against the property owner. It's also a sale of real estate in which the proceeds from selling the property will fall short of the balance of debts secured by liens against the property, and the property owner cannot afford to repay the liens' full amounts, and whereby the lien holders agree to release their lien on the real estate and accept less than the amount owed on the debt." 

Here, the buyer will greatly benefit with the transaction. So if you want to invest on realty, don't forget to study short sale transaction and seek help from a trusted attorney and real estate sales associate.

Local Rotorooter and Plumbing

|
In every adventure, you will have a memorable moment to share with others. If you love to travel and enjoy the trip with your loved ones, you're aware that there are unavoidable circumstances along the road. Sometimes you need to follow the bend, the twists and turns of events and feel grateful about it. After all, life isn't exciting and fun without it. Do you agree with me? No wonder I learned a lot when a plumber enthusiastically helped us during a mini-vacation last year. It's something like local Rotorooter plumbers have always done.

I still remember the day when we had a mini-vacation in a popular tourist spot. The trip was a gift from one of my relatives. For the exciting travel activity, we prepared for possible unavoidable circumstances. It's a good thing that we will stay in a small private resort for a week. In that case, we will prepare our own food and other necessities. It's like having a home away from home. The experience was totally awesome.



Even though it is a long trip, we enjoyed sight-seeing and chatting while in transit. I really liked looking at seashores, trees, mountains and valleys while on the road. Upon arrival, we immediately checked the area and planned for our activities.

My cousin also checked the materials found in the house. The bedrooms for the guests are fine. The living room is very clean and comfortable. There's a huge firewood in the lawn. In the kitchen, the utensils are complete. However, my cousin discovered that the faucet is defective and the drainage system is not in good condition. We realized we have a big problem!

We don't have friends in the area. Therefore, our only hope is to wait for the caretaker to help us fix the dilemma. Fortunately, he came back after an hour since he left his cleaning materials in the lawn. We asked help from help. So he called a skilled plumber to fix the faucet and the drainage system. We're grateful that he did it. Why? It was a holiday and we expect everyone is busy. At that time, we are really grateful that the plumber helped us fix the faucet and the drainage system. Our vacation was successful and unforgettable.

Small Garden at Home

| 11 February 2013
I'm so inspired with our small garden at home. We decided to plant green leafy vegetables in our garden. Obviously, we have collected many seedlings lately.



For next month, our plan is to plant eggplants, squash and some green leafy vegetables. We know that these healthy ingredients are useful in food preparation at home. Since we love soup or broth recipes, I'm sure it won't be hard for us to find the freshest ingredients for every dish we would like to prepare.

Do you like gardening? Let me know in the comments section.

More on Roto-Rooter Plumbing and Drain Service

| 08 February 2013
Homemaking and making our lives in order is an essential part of success. The benefits of having an orderly and organized home are endless. No wonder more and more people learn to be skillful in making their homes perfect for their families. That's why Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Drain Service is a popular offering for homemaking purposes.


After fixing the faucet, we had a wonderful dinner. Grateful :)
 
There are many instances that I've reaped benefits in hiring a plumber. However, I'm more enthusiastic to hire a skillful and experienced plumber to fix things at home. In our area, there are many people who are very passionate in their jobs. They're willing to work for others even during holidays and special occasions. After all, problems relating to plumbing sometimes happen as emergency. What do you think?

Personally, I have experienced working with a plumber for our business. I mean, I hired one for a very essential task. One of the houses that we're going to turn over to a client has a problem. It has a defective faucet in the kitchen. Since it was discovered beyond the warranty period, the buyer asked help in fixing the defect. In order to stay true to our costumer service goals, I told the buyer that we'll help him fix the faucet.

A few hours after he consulted with me the dilemma, I hired a skilled and experienced plumber to check the faucet. He was able to fix it on time. We gave him one day to finish the task.

It's a good thing that before three in the afternoon he's already done with the job. As a result, he was able to discover a problem with the drainage system of the house. He told us that he needed to fix it too. The owners of the property gave a "go" signal. So the drainage system was also fixed before the allotted time to finish the work. After that, we had a wonderful dinner. We also invited the plumber.

The owners of the house were really grateful for our help. I'm also thankful with the help of the plumber. These days, it's not easy to find experienced plumber. I would like to suggest that you should be resourceful in finding one. By the way, this is a sponsored review. However, all the points and views are my own.

Minimalist Living Room Design

| 04 February 2013
I would like to share that I really like minimalist living room designs. I'm impressed with the design of my friend's living room that we checked last Sunday. I know that their house is not too big. But they're able to make it look spacious and dainty. The furniture and other household items were carefully chosen to make the place so gorgeous.


The wall colors are stunning since they chose light colors for the living room and bedrooms. I agree with him that light colors add hype to a minimalist design. It's just perfect to use flowers to add pop of color in the room.

What do you think of this minimalist living room design?

Tulip Bulbs for Sale

| 01 February 2013
Many people believe that flowers heal a sick person. It is the best cure for a weary soul. I've heard that if you bring flowers to the hospital when you visit a hospitalized individual, it is a helpful act for the sick one. No wonder hospital visitors check details about roses and tulip bulbs for sale. I remember I did the same thing when I visited my best friend two years ago.

My best friend and I loved flowers, especially those that are planted in our own front yard. However, we also check the freshest bulbs in the market to decorate our homes. Our new house became popular in the village where we live since we've planted roses in the front yard. As a result, neighbors asked for some parts to be planted in their own small gardens.


I really enjoyed gardening these days. I don't mind if it is a tiresome activity. Every time I see the flowers in full bloom, I always feel inspired and rejuvenated. My favorite flower plants are roses, daffodils, margarita, tulips and other ornamental plants. Before we transferred in our new home, I already planted red and white roses in the front yard. By the time we moved in, the flowers are already showing little bulbs that are really stunning. The mix of different kinds of roses and other flower colors made the whole place a livelier place to stay. In other words, the garden served as the main decoration of our house.

Basically, I read books about taking care of small gardens. We only have a small place in front of our house so it is essential that I learn to maximize its use. I also read blogs that talk about gardening. It's an exciting activity since I have a chance to learn many tips from other bloggers. I can also see their photos of beautiful flowers.

Finding a Shaving Kit Online

| 25 January 2013
I've been looking for a range of complete shaving kits. My husband asked me to find products that will give him a nice after-shave feeling. He wants a shaving kit that has essential oils and are made of natural ingredients. Since I want to stock up for his much-needed products, I've decided to research on how to find the best shaving kits online.



Earlier today, I've read an interesting article about building your complete shaving kit. It's an informative article with insights on each shaving product that men needed for their shaving routine. These products include pre-shave items, oils, oils for electric shavers, shaving powders, shave products, lathers, brushes, razors and post-shave products. There's a wealth of knowledge for every man's shaving routine.

We know that most men use basic shaving kit. If they have a blade and a can of foam, then that would be enough. However, there are many ways to improve your lifestyle to have inspiration in your daily activities. Are you ready to know the shaving essentials for a perfect shave?

Here are the tips that I have learned from the article.

Use an exfoliant scrub and hot water to open your pores.
Use pre-shave oil to soften facial hair. Natural oils are perfect for this step such as olive, coconut and sunflower.
Use depilatory powder to avoid razor bumps and ingrown hairs.
Add shaving lather to your kit to ensure buffer between the skin and the razor. Shaving foams moisturize and lubricate the skin so use it often.
Also, use a badger hair brush to get it right.
It's good to stay away from disposable razors and invest in a quality multi-blade cartridge safety razor or a double-edged safety razor.
Don't forget that post-shave products will relieve burn, dryness and razor bumps, and some will even help heal cuts.

There are other sources of shaving tips online. You can read blog reviews on each shaving products for added knowledge. By the way, this is a sponsored post. However, all the points are my own.

Thinking about Yard Signs

|
My part-time job, which is being a real estate agent, is really an exciting activity. Being a blogger is an added opportunity since most realtors choose to work with us. We used to visit newly-developed communities. In every visit, we see different kinds of house designs, fences and yard signs. For amazing Yard Signs, we check each house and compare one sign to another. Every time there's an open house event, we bring our friends for the gathering.

Last year, I had a memorable time attending an open house event. As a blogger, I won a contest wherein all winners will have an exclusive chance to visit a prominent subdivision. I was really happy when I was chosen as one of the open house guests. It will give me a chance to inspect the huge development near our place and write about it. After all, I've been looking for topics to write in my blog.



I was given four hours to decide if I will attend the activity. The venue is not really far from our place but I've never been there. I don't know the exact location of the club house. I used Google Map to have an idea of the location. Then, I researched for the possible routes for my options. Since the venue is not accessible, I decided to just commute and transfer from one carriage to another until I will reach my destination. I've known that the developer or owner of the property has many projects in the area. The community that I'm going to visit is the biggest among his current realty projects.

I safely arrived in the venue before the program started. Technically, I was late for about twenty minutes. In fact, I wasn't able to eat breakfast served in the gathering. During the program, we heard different speakers who introduced to us each community built within the subdivision. It's really huge that it would take half a day to check all the house and lots. We had lunch after the program. During lunch, I met a lot of bloggers. I also learned that the project is for the middle class. The house design and yards were designed to inspire them.

Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Drain Service

| 18 January 2013
It's really fun to visit your relatives and friends these days. The Information Age has given us opportunities to easily track the activities of our loved ones. Simply put, we have the reason to enjoy the gift of family and friendship nowadays. In enriching our lives, we also give time to visit other people that matters to us. No wonder I didn't hesitated to accompany my husband last Christmas to visit my in-laws. On our way to their home, we have seen a sign about plumbing services. In a few moments after we passed by the area, I remember what I've read about Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Drain Service  and several homemaking tips last night. I didn't know that my thoughts would be useful in the next two days.


We've enjoyed the holidays in my parents-in-laws' house. We stayed there for five days with my husband's siblings. My mother-in-law cooked seafood and beef dishes. I helped her prepare grilled pork and chicken salad. Throughout the family gathering, we helped each other relive memories and enrich our lives with the lessons we learned along the way.

During our five-day vacation, I also experienced a funny situation. My husband was at the lawn when I started cleaning the dishes, a day before we headed home. As I've prepared the faucet and the soap for cleaning, the faucet didn't function well. It seemed that it was damaged since the other day. I remember my father-in-law's reminder that the faucet in the kitchen was damaged. The water suddenly went crazy, just like a shower. I was like having a shower in the bathroom! Thankfully, my husband helped me to solve the dilemma. He found a way to stop the faucet from spilling water. Later on, he called a plumber to fix the faucet. After fixing the problem, I really thanked the plumber for a job well done.

How about you? Do you have funny homemaking stories? I have shared with you a memorable circumstance in my life. I've even shared what happened in my Twitter account. By the way, this is a sponsored post. However, all the points and views are my own.

Los Angeles homes and style

| 11 January 2013
I'm aware that many Los Angeles Homes are truly stunning and built with style and comfort in mind. Since I started writing about celebrity lifestyle, I noticed that many of the celebrities choose to purchase homes located in Los Angeles. I've heard that the realty industry in the area is continuously progressing and many investors are looking for the best deal.

But, it's also essential to know the ways and means to snatch the right deal before anyone else can. In the real estate industry, the best properties are usually first sold to early-bird home buyers so it's necessary to be alert. To do so, be connected with the best sales associates in town. You should be aware that not all real estate brokers are trustworthy so deal only with the accredited brokers that have a proven, good track record in the business.



How to find them? Check the realty websites online and study the people assigned with real estate brokerage. These real estate agents are usually trained to process all kinds of realty purchase. Their experiences are not only limited with choosing the best house and lot properties for you but involve laying down the pricing and other related topics.

Since you don't want to be tricked in the business, make sure to trust only those who have shown you complete information and are easy to deal with. Make sure you have asked your relatives and friends for referral to find the best agent. I've heard many stories about first time home buyers that have completed a successful purchase with the help of friends and relatives. In some cases, home buyers read blog reviews first before talking to a particular broker. At least, that will give them an idea about the sales associate and avoid any problems in the long run.

There are many things that you must consider aside from finding a reliable real estate agent. Take time to research about the property and learn of other news related to it. Perhaps, you can ask the people living near the area or if you knew someone you can ask for more information. Check the design of the house and the surrounding. In addition, you should consider its accessibility and price. After all, you want a value-packed real estate deal that's perfect for your family. What do you think?

Regency Home | After shave Balm

| 04 January 2013
Today is really a busy day for me. I had posted several articles in my blogs and studied some of my tasks for the week. I've read about the color of the year and some homemaking tips, including posts about after shave balm. Aside from reading about technology and fashion, I've also checked my Facebook account to keep in touch with my relatives and friends.


By the way, do you have tips about shaving? I've been looking for articles that tackle shaving tips. My friends have been asking me to write about it. Personally, I'm aware that men should use an after-shave cologne or balm to soften the skin. To soothe and rehydrate the skin after shaving, it's necessary to apply a cologne or after-shave balm. This is also the topic discussed in forums and blogs for men to remember and follow in their shaving routine.

If you're buying an after-shave balm, check the label to know the ingredients used to manufacture the product. I prefer an after-shave balm with grapeseed extract and shea butter formulation to rejuvenate the skin of my husband after shaving. To ensure healthy-looking skin and moisture, a balm or a cologne must have natural ingredients that are safe to use for any part of the body.

My husband loves to elevate his daily shaving routine. Usually, he purchases shaving kits through online shopping. He liked eco-friendly shaving materials that are sold in lower prices. He doesn't like highly-commercialized products so I make sure I researched for the latest stocks of useful items in the market. I also ask my friends for suggestions and read blog reviews for guidance.

How about you? Do you have shaving stories to share? I'm excited to read your comments. By the way, this is a sponsored post. However, all the points are my own.
