Feather Extension

Image
I always like women with long hair so I decided this year I will let my hair grow a bit longer. I like long hair and hubby always told me he likes me to have long hair.  One thing for sure keeping a long hair and maintaining it is a job. I do not go to a hair saloon for maintaining my hair but I go to my cheap hairdresser at least once a month. Since summer is fast approaching, I am thinking of dressing up my hair for a change. I like to be funky and colorful and I got a feeling I would love to wear diy feather extensions yes feather extensions not a hair extensions. Do you know that there is such a thing about feather extensions? It was last week when hubby and I went to Detroit and saw some young adults wore something in their hair. I get very curious so I approached one woman and told her how beautiful her hair is and asked her where they bought it. They were laughing because they attract some attentions not just me but to some people too. So when I got the name of the stuff …

Watch Out

Image
Yesterday we had fun cooking out with friends and family here in our house. The weather is not that good it gets chilly as the hour goes by thankfully; we are finish eating when the rain starts to come and so we have to go inside the house. We were inside the house when we see the trees are swinging because of the high wind. Our friend who is in a tree cutting business told us about how people thought that climbing trees is easy. He once had a customer who ask him to climb their tree but when he gets in the place and saw the tree he told the owner he could not do it the tree is dead. Some people like to push the tree cutter to do it if they only know how hazardous that kind of job is. Right now, he had a good tree climbing gear but still he is very careful not to climb a dead tree or else he will pay hard if he fell down and broke any of his limbs. Therefore, even if he got a very good tree climbing gear he is still cautious which a good thing is.



Be Responsible

It’s been raining cats and dogs here in our area we are suppose to plant the remaining vegetables plant today but I guess we should not do it today. This morning I was a bit scared because I felt the wind is getting fast enough that I am thinking we might have a storm coming and I do not like it especially that I am home alone. When the wind slow down I look out and there it is a branch just hit the windshield of my car. I cannot get out checking because it is still raining and hoping it did not damage the car but lo and behold, it has three cracks on the windshield. We have not call our car insurance yet just hoping they are going to pay for it.      A situation like this it is very sad if our car insurance do not pay for it because it is hard to pay and shed your own money in this kind of problem.  I have been looking around the internet and found cheap car insurance Philadelphia area. As I have seen on their website, you can get free quotes in an instant just by writing your …

Aruba

Image
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Aruba Tourism Authority for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. What do you know of Aruba? The first time I know about Aruba is to an international beauty pageant where their candidate won. After that, every time we kids play beauty pageant at home we always say I am Miss Aruba. It was funny that even until now it still very fresh in my memory. After the realization that there is such place as Aruba, I get curious that was when I was young. When I got here in the US several years ago, my husband’s family likes to travel and they always mention Aruba. So I told them about when did I know about Aruba and they were laughing at me because they too know that time when one of there candidate won in a beauty pageant. However, two of my husband’s grandchildren went last year for spring break and they loved the place. They told us that place is beautiful. It has so many places to go and the beach is awesome. They shopped there and the fo…

Pheromone

Image
Are you familiar with the word pheromone? Well, I look at the meaning of this word and it says “a secreted or excreted chemical factor that triggers a social response in members of the same species”. After reading the meaning, I like to call it our individual scent. We women have our own specific and special scent that men could sense it. I was watching this show about male and female and one aspect they are talking about is the scent. They even said that women tend to put some vanilla or lavender oil in there body to attract the attention of a man. It sounds very interesting that while watching I get a lot of idea.  Somehow, I like the smell of my husband and vice versa, because I think it attracts us hehe. I search more about pheromones and it says human pheromones are natural chemical scents the body produces in order to attract others. Pheromones in animals are well documented as the force that controls all social behavior, including mating. Scientists are now finding that human …

Statue of Life

Friends and I were at a mall (Singapore) where you can find all the high end brand of clothing and purses. Outside of the mall there is this specific stairs that you can find statues in different colors. I call it statue of life because they all seem portraying what we do in life.

                                         Fetching water is sometimes difficult to some places and people.


                                       I wonder where they gonna get water if it is high tide.

                  It amazes me because when high tide came this water wheel will be filled with salty water right? But when it is low tide this water well could provide the people with fresh water. Ain't that amazing?








Gym

Image
I had a wonderful vacation few weeks ago. I stayed four weeks in the Philippines and four days in Singapore. I had a lot of fun with my nieces and nephew and in Singapore with my friends. While I was in the Philippines, I experienced a sweltering heat I often do not like to go out. One time a friend of mine, ask me if I could come with her to the gym. I immediately went with her I was getting bored staying at home, hoping, and praying the weather temperature would go down. While in gym I had fun and I sweat out which was good. A thought came to me at that time because in so many places or countries many do not have the privilege to have a nice gym. Fortunately, in my hometown in the Philippines, we have one or two gyms that I could tell are great. This morning I was chatting to a friend, she arrive Australia a couple of days, and since she is an exercise freak, she went online to look for Gyms in Sydney. Looking at the internet is fun and easy. Just one click of the name everything c…

Golden Hour

Image
I just learned recently (more than a month ago) that taking photos is great in the so called "golden hour". I was in the Philippines when I tried to take the early morning shot while doing my walk at the beach.


Fast forward two days ago I waited our very own golden hour here in Michigan and took this shot. Here is my small peach tree covered with blossoms.

Book To Read

Image
I was reading when a thought came to me this morning. I was in the Philippines and Singapore last month and notice that every store is into free wifi. I know that in this generation most of the people are in social networking sites. You maybe in one or two social media sites but many people had more than two. I heard people say something about privacy, but do we really have privacy? I read Danny DeMichele's Complaints, Reviews and Legal Extortion  book and I am impressive. I know there are some good things that come out from social media but there are also some bad things happening. I do like to tell people to read the book and gauge on yourself if it is true or not. Because for me it is all true and now, I thought of laying low for a time being. In addition, it is great to be aware of what is going on around us and just be careful.




Alliant Group

Image
Tax season is done and gone and eventually we are going to start another cycle of preparing tax. I am thankful that we had a tax refund for last year. Knowing what incentives you can get is awesome because it will lead to a huge refund I am talking about a household income tax but do you wonder about what goes to a huge company. Do you think they have incentives they could find? I found out Alliant Group  is America’s leading tax credit and incentive provider. How cool is that to find out that even a huge company could have incentives? As long as incentives are, there for us it is just right and privilege to get it and enjoy the refund.





Portfolio Services

Image
We are almost in the middle of the year and thinking about it made me dizzy. How does time flies so quick!  I always ask myself about how time flies so quick and never got any answer. This morning as we are having our breakfast I told hubby about Consumer Portfolio Services. I read in one blog I like to visit that, it is never too late to start to invest and looking and getting of these service is important. Hubby and I are not well inform in online investing. But I am certain if we have a consumer portfolio service that we can look anytime in our home is worth the trip. I thought of investing into some commodities but I have to try this service first and will see. Hubby is okay in my suggestion and I am very glad he is like that to me he he.
