Multiply and Online Shopping

I always love online shopping at From beauty products to fab clothes, I always browse items to my sisters' shop and ask for some suggestions and what I like about this is you can make friends with them. I enjoy buying items which are more affordable and more effective than those products which are sold in the market.

It's really easy for people like me who are busy. You will just text/mail the seller for your orders (sometimes you have to fill up the order form to complete the transaction), ask for your bill, send the money and they will send the items to your address and taadaah! your item is there. easy. :)

But recently my happy online window shopping turned bad. Multiply got so slow that even the images are not loading. It takes 10-15 minutes to load the page of the shop.

I got bored and I gave myself a break at online buying. I just thought multiply is under construction or my internet connection has a problem or whatever. But when I got back, same. slow. so slow. really slow. made me sad.

Luckily, I have my contact numbers of my dearest sisters so i can still make an order to them. :)

Hope this problem will be resolve. Soon.

Lather Up with these Soaps

Soaps are part of our beauty regimen whether it's for whitening purposes, moisturizing, exfoliating or to make the skin glowing.

People can get wildly creative in making different designs of soaps.There are some cute soaps that are ideal for gifts which you can purchase online.

These soaps inspire me to take longer and longer hours in shower room. haha.

See the pictures and lather up! :)

Tuxedo-Inspired Hairbands

As we welcome 2010 in our lives we saw new fashion trends for this year and I'm always ready for trying something festive to do it up.

Take a cue from Cary Grant and other black-tie guys and tip your hat to a tuxedoed look. These ideas combines vintage style and a bit of modern flair, and their just begging to be worn by you. :)

Men's Opinion on Make Up

A recent study about make up concluded that men don't like lots of makeup on a girl's face. On the list are Lipstick on the teeth, too much blush, (looks like a clown) thick foundation and "panda eyes" whatever that means.

And, one out of five men would prefer to tone down their (minute per minute) applications, and one in 10 prefer no makeup at all as in bare skin.

The results aren't convincing enough, especially most guys have no idea how much makeup a "no makeup" look can require. But does it count, anyway?

Makeup is a personal choice for us, and however much or little you wear in your personal life is really all up to you. I've asked few of my guy friends what they think about this makeup issue; some of them wants more makeup, wear less, cut your hair like this and that, grow your hair, on and on - while I'm open to feedbacks, a guy's opinion may help but it won't dictate my grooming choices.

how do you handle it when a man gives his thoughts on your appearance?

Make a Better Google Search Results

Google is really smart on giving your search results. You might want to take this tip, which I recently read at Real Simple


Use a hyphen before the words that you don't want to be included on your search results. Say you want to find information about Ravens -- the actual bird, not the football team from Baltimore. So enter "ravens -football -Baltimore." The result will omit those including football.

Smart eh? The hyphen acts as a minus sign so Google knows to exclude those phrases or words. The same logic applies with a plus sign, so if you're looking at super specific result like title of a song that is right on the tip of your tounge, use the plus sign in between search terms to narrow down your search result.

Effective (yet simple) Way to Beat Dry Skin

Cold season brings us dry skin. (how nice!) You know that using an exfoliating body scrub could reveal a softer skin. But here is a trick: a big difference may happen if you use a different method.

Salt scrub or sugar scrub will do the job, (as usual product) you'll get better result if you use it when your skin is DRY, not wet. So strip down and use the body scrub before you get in the shower. Rub it all over you body to strip off the rough skin. Rinse it off in the shower and feel how smooth and soft you skin is. Afterwards, pat your skin with dry towel and lotion up.

Goodbye dry skin! :)

Does Your Dating Requirements Changed?

Our taste in men (or women) change as we grow old. We may find ourselves becoming too picky about who we spend our time dating, opting only for people who have stable lives and their hearts in the right places.

But in time we realize and let some of requirements go like you want a 6'1 height requirement you had in college, for a witty and funny shorty. So if a man had to be tall, handsome, and popular when we were young, maybe he has to be smart, sweet, successful as we get older.

So.. How have your dating requirements changed? :)
