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 Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Girls Monster High Costume

My daughter is 6 year old and like most 6 years old now a days, she already knew what she wants to wear for Halloween! She asked me to get her a Frankie Stein Costume mainly to wear as a ghoulish get up at schools Monster Party which I did got online from Anytime Costumes and frankly,  I am quite impress of its quality! So here is my review.

The costume is a dress with zip at the back, attached sleeves and tie with plastic skull on it and believe me the quality is far better than the regular Halloween costume! The material is a shiny polyester type of clothing and even though it is not stretchable, it still feels comfortable to wear. Probably best getting a size bigger as I did order a size up for my daughter and fits perfectly for her.

The dress come with leggings and it looks well made! It is made out of a soft but quality material and looks like the type that you can wash over a few times. The belt is made of glittery plastic that has studs and lightning bolt on it, which looks lovely!
And lastly is the black and gray stripped boots cover, which just go over and hide the shoes to complete the Frankie Stein look!

Like I said, I am impress with the quality of this costume and would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone! You can also browse the Monster Library to get more ideas about Monster High.

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 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!

Staying in a Vacation Rental

You have an upcoming special event that you want to celebrate with all your close friends and family. Someone suggested you check out a place like Royal Gorge vacation rentals. A vacation rental is an alternative to staying in a hotel. They are usually an apartment or house and they are available for single or multiple night rentals. You can usually get a discount if you arrange to rent the apartment or house for a minimum of two or three days or more. If you enjoy your first stay, you might want to return often and make it a tradition for years to come.

Linens, Kitchens, and Activities

Vacation rentals come with all of the linens and kitchen items you will need for your stay. All you need to bring is yourself and the clothing and personal hygiene items you will need for the length of time you plan to be there. These accommodations are usually in close proximity to wonderful things to see and do. The accommodations can be such that you spend all of your time inside, enjoying the break from the world, relaxing while you read your current favorite book and sit next to a crackling fire. There are usually games of all kinds available to play during your stay. They might even have a puzzle or two for you to work on.

Base or Destination

A vacation rental can be used as a base for you to come and go from as you are exploring all of the sites and amenities that are close by and within driving distance. You might want to use these accommodations for a wedding, and some of them are large enough to house the whole wedding party. Sometimes these accommodations are located far away from cities and offer access to outdoor activities like rafting, fishing, hunting, hiking, four-wheeling, and general enjoyment of the outdoors. Whether you want to rent something close to a city or something far from a city, you might consider Royal Gorge vacation rentals. There are reviews and comments on the Internet you can access about vacation rentals to read and to determine if they are for you or not.

Animal Crossing New leaf is a fun game

Due to the TV adverts, my daughter has persuaded me to get her a Nintendo 3ds xl and the game called Animal crossing new leaf. At first I thought it is a little expensive for what it is, but then it has been 3 weeks since she got it and still plays with it a lot! I would say it is an excellent gadget for traveling as my daughter just sat down quietly with this game and console on her car seat on a 6 hour journey, no complaints or whatsoever, so I think it is worth the money. I would say this is ideal for children who can read, but for those who cannot read yet, you as a parent could be there to assist the child while playing. It is so much fun anyway!

I tried it and I think it is a fun game for the reason that every day is different from the previous day. New characters comes, new task and being busy earning bells by doing chores, shaking tress or collecting sea shells is so much fun! Unlike other games this has no killing and no pressures with time. You get to collect and sell furniture’s, get your own house and make it bigger, make friends with the villagers, and even go to a tropical island tour and make friends with other players around the world. 

I am no expert in this game but I got here some tips you might want to know about animal crossing new leaf game.

If you got stung by bees- (Usually happens when you shake trees) there is a medicine you can buy at the shop called T&T. Sometimes a villager would give you one as well! You can also save the game and log out and log back in again to cure your characters eye that got stung by bees. Beehive can be sold at 400 or sometimes 500 bells in shops at animal crossing.  

If you want to go to the tropical island- You have to pay the full amount of your house, meaning after paying for the down payment, you have to save and pay the full amount at the post office bank in animal crossing. I think you will see the bill in your AC (animal crossing) bank, the day after you got your new home.
Buying something at the tropical island- you need medals for buying stuff in the island, you can earn those medals by joining in tours. 

Balloon that carry’s presents- you can shoot it down using a sling shot that you can buy at T&T shop.

Rocks around the village- you can hit these rocks with a shovel, sometimes you will get bells and sometimes gems! 

Fossils- you can have them apprise at the museum and sell it to the shop or you can donate it at the museum.

KK CD music- you can get this at the Club LOL every Saturday at 8pm on-wards.

Club LOL- this will open a few days after you have gathered everyone’s signature for the club. You will also need to get on your desk if you are the mayor and follow what Isabel says.

I think there are still more, but I am still on the process of learning. Will update this sometime soon!

Four Suggestions to Help Keep Your Drains Running Smoothly

Plumbing is one of the best advances in the modern world. We rely on it every single day of our lives. But most of the time we take it for granted until one of the drains backs up and quits working. Then the problem might have developed to the point where you need help of a plumbing company such as the one found at Following are four suggestions to help you maintain healthy drains and avoid expensive plumbing bills:
·         Use a hot water flush.
·         Take advantage of safe chemical reactions.
·         Add a small amount of bleach during unused periods.
·         Call a plumber before it gets bad.

Hot Water Flush

Drains are notorious for a buildup of soap scum and slime. Although the buildup comes slowly, it can build to the point where it completely blocks the drain. You can flush the lines by using hot water. About once a month, pour a few gallons of boiling hot water down the drain. It will dissolve the soap scum and help it wash down the line.

Safe Household Chemical Reactions

Vinegar is a great disinfectant and can kill germs. Baking soda can also kill germs. By themselves, they kill odors in your drains. When they are combined, they can also loosen grime stuck to the pipe walls. To start, dump some baking soda down the drain. You can even use old baking soda used to absorb odors in the fridge. Then, slowly pour vinegar onto the baking soda. Let it bubble away and work its magic. When the bubbling stops, flush the drains with hot water.

Small Amounts of Bleach

Bleach is great for shower drains and bathroom sinks since it eats away at the organic matter that makes up hair. When you are going to be out of town, pour a little bleach down the drains and let it sit there while you are gone. When you come home, flush the drains. You can also use the bleach at night if no one will be using the plumbing.

Call a Plumber when Necessary

Even with all these preventative measures, your drains will still clog up from time to time. When they do, be sure to call a plumber before it gets bad. Check out websites such as to learn more information about a particular plumber near you.

Girls 50's Poodle Skirt Outfit Review

This Poodle skirt outfit is my daughter’s latest costume, got this mainly for the family’s New Year’s Eve Party and it was a big hit! Everybody seems to love it and I am not surprised! 

So here is my review:

The 50s Poodle skirt outfit can be bought in different colors and up to 8 pieces, which includes accessories and shoes, but the one that my daughter has got is the main 3 pc 50's Poodle Skirt red outfit consists of skirt, scarf and shirt. The lovely skirt it is made out of thick acrylic felt material that seems like it is almost crease resistant! It has a black elasticized waist band and poodle logo attached on it. The Chiffon scarf is very soft and has that nice cool and soft feeling on the neck. Believe me, I  tried it before I put it on my daughter’s neck, and it is not itchy and so light that you would not even noticed it was there! The shirt or should I say polo shirt is 50% cotton and 50% polyester and the good thing about it is that, it is made by Hanes brand which I think most of us have known for a long time.  It also has a beautiful poodle logo on upper the left side of the shirt. 
The costume exceeds my expectations of a costume, as the quality of this is more superior compare to the rest! So I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a 50s costume. I think, this would also be ideal for school events, disco’s, parties, or even on Halloween as it is really beautiful and worth every penny!

Happy New Year

A card for you..

Thank you for dropping by my blog.

Benefiting Your Driving Skills with DUI School Training

Have you ever thought about improving your driving skills? Some people are required to take DUI school in Atlanta because of traffic violations; however, some people choose to take training courses so that they can lower their insurance rates or to become safer out on the roads.

Driving Under the Influence

Though you may have heard the slogan, “Don’t drink and drive” for most of your life, unfortunately, there are still too many people who ignore this simple concept. Whether they feel like they have not had enough alcohol to make them feel drunk, or because they feel like it couldn’t happen to them, too many intoxicated drivers are getting behind the wheel every day.

There are still too many car accidents that are the result of impaired driving because of alcohol consumption. In order to reduce this number and help to save lives, it is important that drivers are aware of what options they have. This way, when they are in the situation where they have to make a choice, the choice has already been made for them.

Choices involve having a designated driver or calling a cab. Cabs can be expensive, however, if you plan on drinking, the cost of transportation should be in your budget or you shouldn’t go out drinking and driving. Additionally, designated drivers can actually be easy to find. Ask among your friends to find out who does not drink—you just might be surprised that not everyone drinks alcohol on a regular basis, if even at all.

Lowering Insurance Rates

One way to become safer on the roadway is to learn how to avoid an accident. Defensive driving is one effective training method that can prevent collisions. Here is an example: there once was a large object in the middle of the freeway. People were trying to maneuver their vehicles around it while also traveling at freeway speeds. One driver gave herself enough space between her and the car in front of her that she had plenty of reaction time to avoid hitting the object. However, the car behind her was too close, swerved to miss the object, and overcorrected his car and crashed, taking several other cars down with him.

Though some accidents are difficult to avoid, sometimes little defensive or protective choices like the one the first driver made can have a big impact when it comes to driving. A DUI school in Atlanta can help teach you some tactics.
