Tweez'em Stainless Steel tweezers Review


I got a pair of tweezers recently to replace my unaligned old tweezers and since I am really pleased with the quality of the new product, I am going to make a review about it.  

I mainly use tweezers to trim my eyebrows, and to tell you, these are the best tweezers I have tried so far! Why? Well, mainly because of their quality, like:

    A. They are made out of solid metal- and won’t bend. Which I think is very good in keeping their shape and precision.
     
    B. These tweezers have a perfectly aligned pointed tips- which in my opinion is excellent for pulling ingrown hair and very fine hair. Really accurate making sure that you are only pulling one hair at a time.    
     
    C. The Tweezers have a flat body- making them comfortable for holding using your pointer finger and thumb.
     
    D. Perfect size- they are about 11.4cm long.


As you can see on the picture the tweezers are yellow in colour and the pointed tips silver. They are a little sharp so I would not recommend pushing hard on to the skin a gentle touch will suffice when using them.  They also come with a protective silicon cap and a plastic case to keep them clean and safe.


Having tried and tested this product, I would recommend this to anyone who wants to trim or shape their eyebrows as these are really good in gripping hairs and I have noticed that I don’t really have a problem with breaking hairs when I use this tweezers. They are certainly worth the money, so I recommend you try them yourself!


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Animal Crossing New Leaf Tropical Island

My 6 year old loves this game and she enjoys going to the tropical island to go on tours, catch bugs, fish, get fruits and occasionally chat with other players. Please note that some of the players in animal crossing are not children! So make your child aware that some grownups are also using this game and she should never give out any personal information such as age, names, addresses, or even their school.

The tropical island is fun, but in order to unlock it, you have to pay the full amount of your house. Then the old mayor Tortimer (a turtle) will come and visit you to tell you about the island. I think it was the following day after Tortimer appears there will be a boat waiting at the dock with Kapp’n in it. You have to pay him 500 bells to get to the island and you can choose if you want to travel with other player or alone. Travelling with other player means it will connect you online so you can play with other players from all over the world.

Oh before I forget, you cannot bring any of your things to the island, except your bells! Once you are in the island, you can borrow most of the stuff you need from a Gyroid, such as shovel, net, fishing rod and so on. Then you can get fruits, bugs, fishes (even sharks) to take back to the mainland and sell or keep them, just put them in the basket near the reception in the island before leaving.  On the tours, you can also earn medals every time you win, which you can use to buy stuff in the island.
Over all, it is still a fun game and would recommend to a child who can read.

Rehab Only Helps when Person Admits to Problem

When your teen is in trouble with drugs or alcohol, it is important to find a great adolescent rehab program. Unfortunately, a program alone won’t bring the change that needs to come from inside and without. A good program will provide the tools that a person needs to make the required changes, but addiction is a tough thing to beat, and for that there are several things that need to be put into place before the person can see the world for what it is and not for what he or she perceives it to be.

Old Habits Are Like Bruce Willis

Old habits die hard. For an addict to have a chance to end addiction, the underlying causes and the triggers for that addiction need to be removed. This may sound easy, but asking a person to get rid of his or her support system is like asking that person to give up oxygen. People need to feel connected to others. When that connection doesn’t happen or only happens when drugs are involved, the addiction supplies those feelings and needs that are missing from that person’s life.

The Problem

You may not know how your teen got involved in drugs, and you may blame yourself. However, what you need to know is that blame never helps solve a problem. Only an honest assessment of what the problem is can lead to a solution. Too often, people look at drugs as the problem. The reality is that they are only a symptom of something else going on.

The Road to Hell

 You may have the best of intentions, but you cannot change a person. Only he or she can change him or herself. Finding a great Adolescent Rehab can only be helpful after the person has admitted and truly believes that there is a problem that needs to be solved. Until that admission comes, he or she is destined to fall back into drug use and rehab much like what Lindsay Lohan has done every time the court has ordered her into rehab. Once the person looks to change, the hard part comes.

Dr. Seuss Thing 1 and Thing 2 Children's Costume Review


My daughter’s school celebrates the International Day of the Book or world book day yearly and during the said event, every child will come to school dress up as their favorite book character. So, on this coming world book day, I got my daughter the Thing 1-2 costume from the famous Dr. Seuss book, the cat in the hat! 

The costume is called The Dr. Seuss Thing 1-2, mainly because your child can wear the costume as either Thing 1 or Thing 2! Depending on which number you want to stick on the front, as these numbers has a small Velcro dots on it which easily affix into the jumpsuit.  Yes it is a jumpsuit and you will only get one with two detachable numbers! 

The jumpsuit is made out of soft polyester material and in a bright red in color. Its fabric is very nice and soft on the skin, and it is not itchy! However my little girl has a different say about the wig as some of the fiber gets onto her face, but nothing serious as this sort of thing can be easily fix by just cutting a few of the fibers on the front of the wig or put a little smear of gel and style it upwards. Apart from that it is a lovely bright blue color wig and it completes the character look!

As of sizing, I ordered a size small for my 6 year old and it fitted perfect with a room underneath for a cardigan or a jacket for colder days. I think this costume is really cute and it would look fabulous on either girl or boy. I would highly recommend this costume as it is well worth the money and you can get it at a rock bottom price from WholesaleHalloweenCostumes.com. Hope this review helps, good Luck!

Tips for Success on the HCG Diet

All diets are challenging. If you want to see results, you need to be consistent. It can be hard when the things you can eat are so limited. For example, if you’re doing HCG in Canada, you probably feel restricted by the diet. You might get tired of your grapefruit, meat, and vegetables. If you want to be successful and to keep the weight off, you can do a few things to make this possible. Try spicing up your foods, timing your foods right, and tracking your intake.
 
Spice It Up!
 
One of the easiest and best ways to make it so that your diet is less boring is to spice up your food. Sure, you may be alternating between chicken breast and turkey breast or other lean meats, but that doesn’t mean it has to be bland or boring. Try different ways of preparing it. Broil your meat, roast it, and grill it. Take advantage of the many spices available and find your favorite combinations. Look for seasonings with no salt added. Even try fresh herbs and garlic on your food. Put things on it that get you excited to eat and not bored. Make it feel less like a diet and more like a delicious menu.
 
Time Your Intake
 
This diet specifies what you should eat at what time of day. This is very important. If you find that you’re most active in the morning or need the energy the most at that time, then consume any of your sugary foods just prior to your activity. Your body will use fructose in fruit more immediately if you consume it right before activity. But you may also find that an apple at the end of the day satisfies your sweet tooth, and the fiber can be helpful overnight.
 
Track Your Intake
 
While you are on this diet, it is important for you to keep track of what you are eating. In terms of calories, you can have very few. But if you get in the habit of tracking, then you can continue this habit once you stop doing HCG in Canada. This will help you to maintain all the progress that you’ve made and continue to be conscious of the choices you’re making.

What to Expect with Eye Lasik Surgery


Having poor eyesight is challenging. If you can’t see things far away, it means you need to wear glasses when you’re driving, and you probably can’t see presentation screens. If you can’t see things close up, it means that reading without glasses becomes an impossibility. No matter what your issue is with vision, you probably want to look into eye LASIK in Austin. Continue reading for more information on the procedure, whether it’s right for you, and what to expect.

What Is It?


LASIK stands for laser in situ keratomileusis. It uses lasers to reshape the part of your eye called the cornea. This procedure not only corrects vision, it treats refractive problems. These problems have to do with how your eye focuses incoming rays of light. These errors occur when the cornea and lens do not match with the length of your eye. Then the image becomes blurred at some point. Common refractive errors include myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

Is It Right for Me?


You are a good candidate for this procedure if your eyesight has remained stable for a long period of time. If it has continually gotten worse, however, you are probably better off using glasses or contacts for now. There is a low possibility of complications related to this surgery, but if any of the risks frighten you, you may want to use some other form of treatment. Other conditions like arthritis or lupus can affect the amount of time it takes you to recover. If you have keratoconus or if you’re involved in activities that can cause injury to your eyes, you should not opt for this procedure. Obviously, your best option is to just have a complete eye exam and consultation with professionals.

How Do I Prepare?


If you have your surgery date schedule, your surgeon should have given you complete instructions on how to prepare. Some common tips include eating and showering before the procedure. You should have a ride home since your vision won’t be immediately fixed. Avoid using eye drops and antihistamines before surgery, and don’t put on any makeup. Finally, after your eye LASIK in Austin, you will need to take steps to recover. 

Getting rid of coffee stains on mugs


I love coffee and for coffee lovers like me, you probably notice that your mug has some coffee stains that won’t come off with just a dish-washing liquid! Well, there are actually some easy ways of getting rid of coffee stains on mugs;

  • ·         You can rub the stained cup with a sponge using salt, baking soda, and white vinegar
  • ·         Or you can simply use a small amount of washing powder and a little bit of water and rub it on the stained portion of your mug.  

These solutions works with tea stain on cups as well!

I have here a photo of my mug, before and after cleaning it with a little washing powder. It really does the job!
