Extend Legs with Tall Boots


It's fall!  And what better way to beat the cold and still look fashionable than to wear boots.  Dark pants under black slim-fitting boots forms an unbroken vertical line that optically stretches legs for miles.  You may also like to wear boots with feminine kitten heels to help elongate legs without losing grace.

How Well do You Know Him?

Nowadays, it's really hard to know who you are dealing with. You may meet a very nice person but you have no idea what he's done in the past. If you watch the show Who the [Bleep] Did I Marry? : Investigation Discovery, you probably know what I'm talking about. It's scary to think that the person you're with has a dark past and that he can do things to you that you can never imagine. It would do you well to check background checks now before it's too late. I can only feel for the victims' families who lost their daughters because they were completely unaware of their partners' secret life.

Making Jewelries

Seeing all these beautiful pandora beads online makes me think of going back to my old hobby, jewelry making. I used to do a lot of these before but when my daughter lived with us together with her newly born twins; I hardly had time to do it. Helping her take care of her two little babies took most of my time. I can only drool in front of my laptop looking at these charming beads. Hopefully in the near future, when these babies are older, I can sit down again and make fashion jewelries.

Becoming Techie

For a non techie person like me, even the simplest computer stuff can be daunting. It took a while before I learned how to defrag my computer. Here at home, it's hubs and my daughter who usually do all these things; but hubs imposed that I should learn too so I know what to do in case something happens to my computer and both of them are not around. Point well taken so I had to force myself to learn things like how to backup files, do the WP updates on my own, learn how to reformat hard drive, etc. It was taxing for me but I have to admit that learning these things are beneficial. At least now I don't have to depend on them when dealing with techie stuff.

Look Stunning with the Right Chain


One step to looking gorgeous is choosing the perfect length of chain.  A mid-length chain can slim the face.  The U-shape silhouette of an opera-length chain visually creates a longer vertical line from the forehead to the bust.  The long chain optically elongates the head and neck for a slimmer looking face.



A long chain can make you look lean all over.  The narrow line of a waist-skimming sautoir (longer than 45 inches) necklace pulls the eye up and down to the body.  This gives the illusion of an elongated torso; a great trick when you are trying to look slimmer.  Plus, if you choose airy circle loop links, it will help create a lacy look that will make your shoulders appear broad and softer.



Frame the face with a short chain.  The slight scoop of a princess-length choker mirrors the curve of the jaw and creates a frame-like border that forces focus up to the face.

I Love Pearls

True, diamonds are a girl's best friend, but so are pearls.  Did you know that back in the old days, only the people who are rich and have certain ranks can wear these smooth and milky gems?  In the present days, it's the Japanese who have who value pearls so much.  It is believed to bring luck to the wearer.  They say Japanese pearls are expensive but if you are to consider the quality and beauty of each of their pearls; you'll realize their prices are reasonable.



My mom used to travel a lot to Japan before.  That where we get our merchandise from.  Mom used to import clothes, shoes, accessories, and toys from Japan.  She had met a lot of suppliers from Tokyo and they had also become our friends.  When one of them visited us here; he gave all of us (mom, me and my sister) pearl rings.  They were lovely and very elegant.  I still have mine with me but I gave it to my daughter.  I was still very young when it was given to me and now the ring doesn't fit anymore.  It's a lovely pink pearl and all through the years; it never faded.  That was my first pearl and I have been in love with these round gems since.  My mom and sister go for diamonds, but me?  I'm very happy with my pearls.

Are you thinking of giving someone a gift?  Go for pearls.  Like diamonds, pearls are very precious and they are not as expensive.

Serious Music

First, he just asked for a mini organ; now it's the minimoog musicians friend synthesizer! That was my sister in law's words when she called me up yesterday. Her son is asking her to buy a synthesizer because he and his friends are forming a band. I told her that if his son is really serious in playing, then she should encourage him and tell him that they would save for the synthesizer. She has to set some rules because it is expensive and there's no use buying it if it's not going to be used for a long time. She says tonight they are going to have a talk. My son says his cousin is pretty serious about his music; he'll probably get the synthesizer.

Hide Belly Bulge


There is no way you will shimmy into a full-on girdle when the weather is too hot.  But these Lycra and Spandex tummy tamers can keep you cool and comfortable.  I love that it is lightweight and easy to wear, even when the sun is at its hottest.  My favorite is a tank with hidden bulge-banishing tummy panels.

Sniffles Gone!

When our twins had the sniffles, I searched all the drugstores near our area looking for a vaporizer.  I didn't know that this gadget aren't used anymore.  One of the staffs in the drugstore told me that it has already been replaced by nebulizers.  Don't laugh but I thought nebulizers are only used by persons with asthma.  It was at the medical equipment store that I was told it's also great at relieving nasal congestion.  True enough, the girls got better right away after using the gadget with saline solution.  Now, even us adults are using it.  And I feel good that now we don;t have to take the meds when we have the sniffles.  The saline solution is already enough to make us feel better.
