Stubborn Acne Making My Life Miserable

Why acne needs to be stubborn? Why do we need to get them on our face specifically? Why it can't appeared on places of our bodies where it is not visible to the public eyes? I am so tired of dealing with my acne. I never had this severe case of acne before. First and foremost, it is breaking my bank by buying different acne products with promising results.

I can't go to the dermatologist for I do not have the insurance. Visits alone will break me into pieces with the doctor's fee plus expect the prescription. I am in my 30's and why still getting these darn acne? I am not into fried foods since my husband cooks food in the oven the american way! :)

So, I finally gave this leading acne products that is buzzing about how it gives you clear skin and very popular to the students. I am subscribed as I have to. Right now, I chose the Maximum strength, one week today and I am happy so far for seeing some result. I am looking forward of having that clear skin a month from now. I got a break out yesterday which makes me unhappy. But, crossing fingers and hopeful that this one will work fighting against my stubborn acne. Oh GOD, take these acne away as I don't need them... LOL

The Keys To Ageing Actively For A Long And Healthy Retirement

Let's be honest, there are more than a few of us around who look into the future and see retirement as some golden finish line. We spend a lot of time working, and we enjoy the trappings of what we earn. We put aside money for our retirement and tell ourselves that then we can stop. Work for forty, fifty years and then we're done. Okay, it's an exaggeration to say we see ourselves just sitting still for the rest of our lives, but it's not a huge one.

The truth, if you know or speak to many retired people, is that retirement is not like that and they don't want that anyway. As you get closer to the day when you can retire, it is normal to look to what you will do. Sure, you can sleep in a bit longer. But if you have the time to experiment with that, try it for a week. Only get out of bed when you need to eat. By day four you'll be miserable - staying active is key to staying happy.

Preparing For Retirement - What Does The Future Hold?


The fact that you may no longer work full time for an employer - or running your own business - is one thing. But it doesn't mean you completely stop. You may still work on a reduced basis, or run a small business from home. You may decide to travel, or even emigrate to somewhere more peaceful. Whatever the case, it's beneficial to have a plan. Finding yourself at a loose end can be a real negative.

Physical Ageing Is Inevitable, But How You Age Is In Your Hands


We see ads all the time that talk about "reversing the ageing process". This is, like a lot of advertising speak, a lie. You can't reverse the ageing process. What you can do is limit its effects. If you go for regular walks, get a hobby and maintain a healthy diet, there's no reason you need to be struggling to stand up for some time yet. Even if you start to feel stiffer and more impaired, physical therapy can make a big difference.

Young At Heart? Better To Be Young In Mind.
When you see an older person acting in a way that seems less than mature, the phrase "young at heart" may occur to you. Along with some unkinder phrases. However, acting a bit younger isn't a bad thing at all.


Staying aware of current trends, keeping up with technology and having younger friends are good ways to keep fresh. An active mind feeds an active body and vice versa. It's for this reason that grandparents like to, and always should, spend a lot of time with grandkids.



In this day and age - where, whatever you think of them, the Presidential candidates are 69 and 70 - old age doesn't mean disappearing. What it can mean is a new lease of life. You've got lots of life experience and an incentive to put it to use. You've got some living left to do!

Fourth Graders Picture Day

As a mother to my kids I tend to get way more excited than them which I think all or majority of the mothers can relate to what I am feeling. Every year, there is a picture day going on. Month before the picture day I am already hunting for clothes or outfit that my girl will wear. :)

Back home, we don't have such thing as "Picture Day"  but here, it is different in the USA which I loved the idea. Pictures comes in different packages and it is not cheap! :( For memories sake, I go for it by closing my eyes while writing the check. LOL!

Today is the picture day for my fourth grader. I woke up early and woke her up early too since we have to decide on how to do her hair. I want to curl her hair but she said "NO" - regardless how she wear her hair, she will always be my prettiest baby/princess! :) Loved my girl to death... :)

It will take a month before the picture will be release. I hope she give her best.

Improving Your Health And Body In 6 Achievable Steps

Do you dream of improving your health and body? So many people feel the same way as you. However, many tend to fail to do anything about their desires. They wish, and they envy people with healthy bodies, but they still don’t do anything. If you want to improve your health and body, you can do so in 6 achievable steps:

Focus On How You Want To Feel
The first thing you need to do isn’t think about it the way we usually all think about it. Don’t think ‘I wish I could lose 20 pounds’. Don’t think, ‘Why can’t I run up the stairs without getting out of breath?’. When you repeat these things to yourself, it just solidifies that you aren’t doing them yet in your subconscious. Then you’ll end up getting more of the same. This might sound like new age mumbo jumbo, but it’s the truth. Instead, focus on how you want to feel. Do you want to feel healthy? Strong? Alive? Energized? Whatever you want to feel, write those down. Focus on them. Science has proven that we get what we focus on! However, don’t say things like ‘I can’t wait to feel healthy’. That implies you don’t yet feel healthy. You need to fake it until you make it a little. Say things like, ‘I am so healthy and happy!’, and, ‘wow, why am I so healthy?’. These affirmations and afformations will get you to a good place inside where you easily achieve your dreams.

Love Your Body

Nobody ever got the body of their dreams by hating their body. This is where so many people go wrong. It’s like trying to build an empire on top of quicksand. When you love your body, you set the foundations for much better results. You can’t think, ‘I’ll love my body when it looks the way I want it to look’. This has an air of lack and desperation to it. People who feel like this really struggle, and rarely get the best results. Instead, find ways to love yourself. Your feet help you to walk. Your legs take you wherever you want to go. Your body breathes without you needing to tell it to. It really is a magical thing! Start appreciating it and you’ll be more inspired to take healthy steps to achieve your goals.


Make Healthy Food Choices
Although our inner world has a lot to do with the results we get, so do our food choices. Chances are, if you’re eating a ton of junk food, you’re not going to look or feel how you want to at all. Make healthy food choices the majority of the time, and you’ll begin to feel so much healthier and alive.

Find Ways To Get Active Regularly
Run up the stairs. Park your car further away. Take a short walk around the office every hour. These little things all add up!

Visit A Professional
If you feel you need more help getting to the root of your problems, a professional could help you with this. You may want to see somebody who specializes in body coaching. Bel Red Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Jan Zemplenyi is a liposuction expert, who could also help you. Bear in mind that surgical options and non surgical options could both be suited to you. However, it pays to know the risks before going through with it. You should also make sure you’ve done the inner work first, as surgery alone will not make you love yourself!

Don’t Call It A ‘Diet’
Calling your new lifestyle a diet implies that it’s short term. This is why you need to make everything you do sustainable, and suited to everyday life. Diet is a word most people associate with negativity!

Good luck!



Fixed Appliance Plus Retainer

image not mine

This is what fixed appliance would look like in our girl's mouth. She just turned 9 years old. Her dentist was so worried about the "crowding" that she have. To avoid the problem in the future, she recommend the fixed appliance to be put in our girl's teeth. She still have so many baby teeth that 8 to 9 months from now are gonna fall out.

My husband and I are not very worried about it-we're thinking of going to another dentist and seek for a second opinion. If we'll get the same opinion, then, we are going to have our girl have it. She plays trumpet. According to her dentist, it will cause discomfort for a week and then, she will be able to adjust.

As my husband was doing some researched online about the pros and cons of having the appliance, some were awful and some are not. It is really hard to decide. The best option is to visit another dentist.
