Featured Blog | Karenade

| 28 January 2013
If you hear someone call you by your blog name, it's a very flattering event in your life as a blogger. I'm a blogger who loves writing about fashion, travel and real estate. For the past four years, I've done many projects for my clients and it seemed that I'm still enthralled with the idea of building an online project out of ideas and points shared in a popular platform. Indeed, I was inspired when someone called me, Karenade, my fashion blog name.

In this post, I would like to share my fashion blog. It's my first project with more than five hundred posts about celebrity style, events, shopping and other lifestyle-related topics. During free time in the office, I started the blog with fashion inspiration and tips in mind as my main topics. At that time, I was a blogger of an international fashion website that caters to celebrity style fans. From there, I learned the basics in style blogging.

Thank you for your continued support of Karenade. I'll truly appreciate your Facebook comments in the blog. Of course, I'll connect with you through social media as usual.

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.
