Have you tried menstrual cup?

Or should I say have you heard of it at all? Perhaps some of YOU may have but I am also certain that most of you have not, and it’s OK. I would like to share my experience with my readers out there on the first menstrual cup (moon cup) I’ve ever used. What makes me decide to try it? I normally have heavy menstrual flow and it get’s nasty when blood clots starts pouring out (please excuse my statement especially when you are eating), I waste a lot of menstrual pads. My work requires standing a lot and it hasn’t been easy for me during my monthly period and since I heard about menstrual cup and its positive reviews I gave it a try. It was uncomfortable the first two days; I felt the pressure around my uterus wall when I’m laid down and with the stem uncut it made it even pricklier. After cutting the stem all the way I feel better. I don’t have to worry about removing it even without the stem because it has a grip where we can hold on to and just a little push it will come out easily. I’m glad I have it, since then I don’t wear pads anymore. Using this eco-friendly and reusable plastic cup helped me save money and it’s easy to clean too. The key is to insert it the right way, which you will learn after a few days of using it. Following the instruction carefully is definitely a must. YOU should get one for yourself too!

I mentioned in my previous product review that Sun Grubbies gave me an opportunity to review one of their unique and stylish sun hat, which I have had received lots of compliments from. It was such an honor to work with their company, not only do they provide excellent quality of products but their customer service was awesome too. Fortunately, I was given another opportunity to review their UV Blocking Travel Umbrella. I must say that this umbrella is really nice and very handy, fits in my purse and that it can be carried anywhere I go.

Custom Uniforms For Hospitality Industry

In the hospitality industry, the appearance of staff plays a very important role. Customers expect to be served by workers who are dressed in the appropriate attire. Employees in hotels, restaurants and spas must portray a professional image that is parallel with a brand’s particular values and traditions. Therefore, many businesses often order custom uniforms for their workers. The color schemes are very important in the design of uniforms that are worn by employees. For example, a restaurant wants to have apparel and accessories that match the company’s logo and overall theme.

Custom uniforms might be ordered online in bulk through suppliers that have their own manufacturing factories and textile plants. Waitstaff uniforms might include black pants and dress shirts that are enhanced with a bow tie or tuxedo. Upscale restaurants and hotels might even expect their workers to wear dress shoes when serving customers. Aprons must be worn at all times by waiters and waitresses that serve dishes. The aprons might have a company’s logo embroidered in thick colorful stitching patterns. Bib, bistro and cobbler are the major styles of aprons that are worn by restaurant workers.


In today’s age, it is still possible to purchase made in USA aprons. In fact, some restaurants might boast with national pride by emphasizing that their aprons are fully produced in the United States of America and not China or other third world countries. Waitstaff uniforms should also have pockets in order to store pens, pencils, notepads and other small essential items.

It’s still in my cart!

For the last 4 weeks I had been saving these items in my shopping cart and I haven’t had the chance to proceed into checkout just yet. Aside from not having my budget for shopping I am still hopeful that these two, its prices will go down. Unfortunately after weeks of waiting, prices were still“as is”I might as well just go ahead and pay it before someone shows his or her interest and purchase it. I love the dress, this will be cute for my little girl and the dress shoe will be just right for my son too. I just bought him a dress shoe but because of its poor quality it got ruined after a few days of wearing it. If I purchase this dress shoes rest assured that I won’t be disappointed since it is branded and the price is reasonable too.

All Like It HOT!

Both you, the pizza maker, and the customers depend on pizza bags for delivery of fresh, piping hot, crisp pizzas that arrive in just out of the oven condition. That puts a smile on the face of the customer and gives an incentive for them to continue ordering in the future. A satisfied customer remains a loyal customer.

Screen Shot 2014-06-19 at 8.21.43 PM

Pizza bags come in a variety of attractive styles and colors and use high quality materials together with a superior construction method using a multi layered “super-insulation” system for superior heat retention. They have a washable and durable polyester exterior, a stain resistant nylon interior, moisture free insulation, sturdy durable handles for easy carrying, velcro closures, a large ticket window, and are built to withstand heavy use. Quality and workmanship go into every well-constructed bag.

In addition, your logo, produced by an experienced artwork department, will certainly remind customers where they got that delicious pizza!

Pizza is not only popular in North America but also in South America, Asia, Europe, Australia and Africa. Domino’s says that Super Bowl Sunday is the most popular day for pizza deliveries. Following is Halloween, New Year’s Day, New Year’s Eve, and the day before Thanksgiving.

How to Get Flawless Skin Under Makeup

Although most of us apply makeup to cover up imperfections, it’s possible to get healthy skin and use makeup to simply enhance your favorite features. How? It all has to do with taking care of your skin before you apply makeup.

The leading schools of makeup artistry teach their students that clients will need to prep the face for makeup. However, the same techniques used to prepare the face for makeup can help to improve the quality of the skin. Here’s how to get beautiful skin and prepare the face for makeup.

Follow a basic skin care routine. Skin care involves many steps, all of which can improve your skin and prepare the face for makeup. Don’t underestimate the basics of a skin care routine. Find your favorite cleanser, toner, and moisturizer, and use all three every single day. A clean, toned and moisturized face is the perfect canvas for makeup. It’s also the ingredients to a healthy glow.

Pamper your skin type. If you have oily skin, take care of it by using products that reduce oil. Getting rid of excess oil will not only clear up blemishes, but also provide a better foundation for makeup. The same applies for dry skin, sensitive skin, combination skin, and mature skin. Find products that pamper and cater to your skin type for best results.

Don’t forget primer. After a basic skin care routine and using special products that address your skin type, it’s time to bust our primer. Most people forget about this step, but it’s crucial if you want flawless skin with or without makeup. A primer is a must for people with dry or sun-damaged skin.

For my lil Miss!

I know many of you have heard of thredUP website, but for the benefit of those who doesn’t know about it, it’s a consignment online store where you can buy brand names items at a very reasonable price. That’s where I usually buy stuff for my kids. They sell “used” and “new” clothing, accessories and footwear for kids (boy/girl) and adults. They have wide selections of items; they basically give $10 to those first time buyers, which I think is cool (who doesn’t want to save money these days anyway?).

These were my recent purchased at their store and so far I’m happy with what I bought from them. I always check on their website for new items everyday and if I find something that’s cute, stylish and practically new and of course affordable, I undoubtedly put it in my cart for checkout. I bought cute dresses for my daughter and the shoes; I’m still waiting for its delivery. I hope it will come this week so my daughter can wear it on our District Convection on the 13th, 14th and 15th of this month.

It is cute. Isn’t it?

Makeup Done Beautifully

Makeup has been used by several women in the past from Egypt, Rome and China. Eyeliners, penciled eyebrows and dark red lips became popular during the 1920’s in the United States. Some women chose to go natural during the 60’s and 70’s; however, makeup today is extensively used by many women. Although men who have traditionally used makeup extended to males appearing on TV, several men are now using products to enhance their aesthetic appearance. For instance, it has become common amongst some men to use concealer and powder to improve the look of their skin.

Choosing Quality Footwear for the Family

Parents typically want their kids to have the best shoes that the family can afford. When their kids play a lot of sports or the family is particularly active, moms and dads may be less than satisfied with the footwear selections that are available at big box retailers. Rather than settle for substandard shoes, they may instead find the shoes that fit their budgets and lifestyle needs when they shop online. They can find family selections when they consider the selections available at online locations like SneakerKing.com.

Screen Shot 2014-05-23 at 1.52.32 PM

Children who participate in sports are often required by their coaches to have the ideal shoes for competition. If they run track, for example, they cannot compete well with cheap canvas shoes. However, finding quality footwear for athletic purposes can be challenging, particularly if people are shopping during the off season. They can prepare early when they use the website to browse and buy the footwear that is right for their kids.

Children also tend to outgrow their shoes rather quickly when they are still young. Keeping up with their constant shopping needs can press parents for money and time. When moms and dads need to save money, yet buy shoes that will fit their kids, they can find the appropriate size online. Some retail stores only carry select sizes and even run out of stock on the desired shoe selection. Parents can avoid the hassle of having to shop at several stores to find the best shoe for their kids.

When moms and dads also need new shoes, they may lack the time to take away from work to shop for themselves. They may let their own shopping needs go because they cannot get away from their pressing duties to go to their nearest shoe store. When they shop online, they can take a look at footwear during their downtime or on the weekends. If they get off work late at night, they can still complete purchases during the overnight hours. This around-the-clock convenience lets parents do their shopping without having to take time off or worrying about time constraints.

Some families are loyal to certain brands over others. If people prefer to wear one particular brand and want to avoid buying another, they can search for shoes online by filtering their selections by the brand name. This convenience lets them save time and find the shoes they want for their family.

Shopping is my weakness!!!

I’m sure many of YOU out there can relate my weaknesses. I love shopping mostly for my kids clothing. I can see lots of cute clothes/outfit especially for my little girl and I can’t help myself but purchase it. I think the only thing that differ us is probably that you shop at the brand names store or stores like JC Penny, Target, and Marshalls etc… in my case, I love shopping at our local consignment stores like Goodwill and other thrifty stores nearby. Here are my latest purchased, cute tops and pants too. They look pretty much new, slightly worn and sometimes I find outfits that are never been worn and tags are still there. They are cute. Aren’t they? I would rather shop at goodwill knowing that kids will outgrow their clothes easily. Not only do I save money but I get nice stuff too.
