What I'm Loving Right Now (Beauty and Skin Care Blog Post)

Hi there!


Been a long time. Hope you're doing well.

I've been busy--and am too busy to elaborate.

So, onto what I'm loving right now...


1. Aveeno Positively Ageless Night Cream


Like what Cameron Diaz said, there is "no such thing as anti-aging." But, there is good skin care for mature skin. To help with heavy moisture-loss during sleep, applying night cream is a must.

Most night cream are heavy in feel, but this Aveeno night cream, made with noncomedogenic formula, feels light and easy. The purchase was a good choice, and I definitely recommend it.

Solid-Blocking (Fashion Blog Post)

Jack of all trades, master of none.


Miss HR was a cool girl. 

I met her at a previous work place, a tiny consulting firm that no longer exists, and we immediately hit it off. Whenever I was in between projects, she proposed to my manager that I attend college job fairs with her.

I wasn't qualified to hire anyone, of course, but Miss HR liked my company, and Mr. Manager liked the exposure his department was going to receive. So I went, and had a good time with Miss HR.



During one of the job fairs...


...a young man, all dressed up and looking important, came to talk to us. According to him, he was THE-MAN: master psychologist, astute manager, genius engineer, communications expert...I don't remember everything, because it was a looooooooooong list.

"Check out this guy!" I exclaimed, "he's so smart!"

Miss HR, who was much savvier than I was, looked rather unimpressed. She leaned over and whispered, "Jack of all trades, master of none."
 
 

Ouch! (For him.)

Jewelry Making - Fun with the Preschooler (Fashion Blog Post)



Bored with a preschool-aged girl?


One cure is doing crafts--and specifically making jewelry. If you have a little girlie girl, she'll most likely adore making her own necklaces and bracelets. It's easy to do, doesn't require a ton of money, and supplies are sold everywhere. Head to Michael's, or any local craft store, you'll find a jewelry-making section with assortments of beads, wires, tools and other shiny objects.

I started with our daughter Jo when she was three and tell you what, it's one of the funnest projects we do. Not only is the kid being entertained--and we all know how hard that is with young ones--she learns from the experience as well.

Evil Teenage Girls (Fashion Blog Post)

Instead of being happy for me, frenemies said that my daughter will be an evil teenage girl.


Not in the exact same words, but I knew what they meant. I knew their intention too--to get me worried and arouse a negative reaction, even though the timing was right after I found out that our firstborn was going to be a girl, and I had just weathered three painful years of infertility.

They said that teenage girls are hormonal, and mean, and will cause a lot of trouble just for attention.


They could be right. My daughter could become an evil teenage girl.

Instantaneous Length - Benefits of Hair Extension (Beauty Blog Post)



Fuller hair can be faked.


No joke.

My stylist from a few years ago participated in a traveling stylist group that sent him to L.A to style the stars. Yes! The super-glam type who walked on the Red Carpet. According to him, their secret to hair volume is using extensions.

"Oh! Nicole Richie, Brittany Spears...they all use extensions," he said, "I was just doing Nicole's hair last weekend...it was...like...all extensions!"

No wonder she always looks so, um, va-va-voom!

After feeling pretty impressed that he knew Nicole Richie on a first-name basis, I also felt a little shocked that extensions are so popular. Then, I started noticing a lot of beauty blog posts about hair extensions over blogosphere. They really are popular!


However, not all extensions are the same.
