Like most Asian, I am not gifted with long and curled eyelashes. The dream of wide, seductive and sexy eyes are dauntingly 10,000 steps away from reality because, let’s face it, not all women can master this. Anyway, a great artist needs the correct tools to create his art. Shu uemura’s eyelash curler has been a favorite of many make up artists and they recommend that it’s beauty must-have tool because it precisely delivers the perfect curl.

The Shu Uemura eyelash curler is priced US$ 19.00 (779php). If you happen to look for it at ebay.ph, the starting price is between 720 to 850php as against to other local brands that’s priced between 100-350php. If you don’t want to splurge, an alternative for the Shu Uemura is the Eyelash curler from Fanny Serrano (FS). Shu Uemura is shu uemura, however, FS eyelash curler is almost… i stress the word ALMOST… comparable to shu in giving you that perfect eyelash curl. Only 175php.. yeah i know… let’s all say it together.. 1, 2, 3… IT’S SOOOOO CHEAP!!!! Add on some mascara, you’re good to go!

I have read from a forum that Apple cider vinegar can actually make you lose weight! Now that i have gained few pounds from vacation, I’m a sucker to anything and everything related to dieting– safely! hehe I read somewhere that organic ACV works better than those sold in the supermarket. Healthy options sells organic ACV that’s why I’m gonna pay them a visit anytime soon. However, you can also look for Braggs ACV at local supermarkets, which is as effective as the organic ACV. This brand has not been put through the purification process and still contains the enzymes and minerals that other ACV may not contain due to over processing, filtration and overheating. 

Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar has long been used as a health aid for weight loss and circulatory health. It is a very safe supplement, even for children. There are no known side effects resulting from using it. It is obtained from the fermentation of apple juice. The fermentation provides alcoholic apple cider that is combined with oxygen to produce acetic acid. The pH of ACV (apple cider vinegar) is very beneficial for the body.

Apple cider vinegar is quite rich in minerals, vitamins and other substances. It contains vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin, A, vitamin P, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 and vitamin B6. ACV also a lot of beneficial minerals like manganese, iron, calcium, sodium, magnesium, sulpher, copper, phosphorus, silicon, chlorine and fluorine.

ACV provides enzymes, amino acids, aldehydes, potash, alcoholic acids, propionic acid, and apple pectin. Apple pectin is a dietary fiber that is an essential component of a healthy diet. With more than ninety substances and a great deal of minerals and vitamins, apple cider vinegar can be one of the most important ingredients in a healthy diet.

Blood pressure:

The potassium in ACV along with other substances makes the blood thinner and is helpful in controlling blood pressure.

Cholesterol control:

Many heart attacks are caused by high fats and cholesterol in your blood. The fiber in ACV helps to absorb fats and cholesterol by expelling them from the body as waste materials.

Diabetes:

The dietary fiber in ACV is also helpful in controlling glucose levels in the blood.

Arthritic pains:

Many suffer from this disease in the west and it is caused by the gathering of metabolic toxic waste in the tissues. In this context, ACV speeds up metabolism and excretes the toxic wastes from the tissues.

Strong Bones:

Minerals like manganese, calcium, magnesium, silicon and iron develop bone mass and make them stronger.

Yeast Infections:

ACV is also useful for yeast infections like Candida caused by the unbalance of acid levels in the body. Making a solution of ACV in warm water and douching can help with the symptoms.

Chest congestion:

Apple cider vinegar is also useful in flu or chest congestion. Applying ACV with pepper on the chest can help relieve some of the congestion.

Sore Throat:

If you have a sore throat, gargle with ACV mixed with water.

Digestion:

In your digestive system hydrochloric acid and pepsin are two essential components that break down the food to be digested properly. The lack of these components can cause food poisoning. ACV has ability to enhance their functionality and help prevent food poisoning.

Nasal Congestions:

Apple cider vinegar is sometimes helpful in nasal congestion.

 

Apple cider vinegar and weight loss


It helps to detoxify the liver which plays an important role in weight loss. There are historical facts that Egyptians took apple cider vinegar for weight loss. Some claim ACV speeds up the metabolism while some claim it burns the calories to reduce appetite. To lose weight just take 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar, mixed in water, before every meal.

ACV is also available in tablets and capsules. According to some nutritionists the combination of apple cider with kelp, vitamin B6 and lecithin is much more effective for weight loss than ACV alone.

 

Hi there fellow shopaholics!

When a friend of mine brought me to the Tyler shop in Glorietta , looking for our Graduation outfits years back, it instantly occurred to me that I am soon gonna be a constant, devoted Tyler window shopper simply because this brand carries one of a kind, elegant and timeless pieces of clothing…Plus the sales assistant was very polite and accommodating, not to mention that she didn’t follow us around the store, suspecting us like we were those cheap shot thieves who just got bored stealing from department stores.. (ok, that was too specific. :p )

Anyway, when i woke up last Friday, I was thrilled to see my package beside my pillows and I literally ripped it then slowly retrieved my precious top/coat from the pitiful wreck of plastic and paper…. hehehe Anyway, nothing brings me more joy than getting a great big bargain! This top is new w/ tag still on, never worn (stored in the closet) and I won it for only 650php! hehehe

here’s my coat/top:

Another coat i bought 2 weeks ago, from this very nice ebay seller who, even the item has still 5 days, ended the bidding early for me. How? It’s simply by asking! Anyway, i thought this glam coat was too thin and just so so given that i paid only 300php for this. Turned out that this was really nice, the fabric thick enough and the quality is superb! I can compare the quality to that you can buy at zara or mango. Anyway, this has no brand however I got this new (you can smell it, though).

here’s the pic:

Oh, i just love online shopping!
