Dressing the Part as a Die-Hard Music Fan

People who love punk rock music often want to dress and act the part. Punk rock itself is a genre of music that also has its own cultural look and feel. People who subscribe the punk rock way of life may want every detail of their own lives to mirror the music they love. If you count yourself as a true follower, you can shop online for gear like girls punk clothing and even housewares when you visit one of the music genre's online stores.

Apparel for Everyone

Dressing like a true punk rock fan may go beyond shopping at your local big box stores or mall retailers. These locations may not sell anything remotely looking like punk rock clothing. Instead, you may find clothing that is true to this genre of music by visiting the website and filtering your search for your particular shopping needs.

For example, if you want to find tops that will match your particular style, you can use the Clothing by Category link. This link will take you to a page that is full of shirts, as well as pants, skirts, jackets, and even lingerie made in the punk rock fashion.

You can also find guys' clothing like shirts, neck ties, and even scarves and gloves. These clothing selections come with pictures that you can click on to see what they look like up close. You can also find the pricing for each apparel item listed on the website.

Accessories and other Punk Rock Mementos

Along with clothing, you may be interested in shopping for the latest punk rock music. The site is set up so that you can look for new releases and vintage music collections. You can find CDs made by new artists and records that were made back when punk rock first hit the pop culture scene.

You can also find unique housewares that you can use in your home. One-of-a-kind selections like wall clocks, throw pillows, and even rugs can be found on the website. These accessories and housewares allow you to immerse yourself entirely into a music that has been around since the early 1970s.

Punk rock music has its own cultural look and feel that many fans find appealing. You can dress the part of a true punk rock fan by shopping for clothing, accessories, housewares, music collections, and more online

Sale Perfumes at The Chemist Warehouse

It was another shopping day for me and my sis yesterday. Guess where we went to? At the chemist warehouse in Campbelltown. My eyes feasted over the wide selection of perfumes.. even the branded and expensive ones are on SALE..... read.. SALE!

I was so tempted to buy perfumes again but I already bought Calvin Klein's Euphoria, my  fave scent, last december. Also bought it at the chemist warehouse store but in Blacktown. I just looked over the massive collection of fragrances and was excited to see them on sale. aww.. If only I can buy a lot of them as they are cheap!

I was looking for some great deals on lipsticks but they are only 25% off.

Finding the Right Dentist: Tips You Can Use

You know that going to the dentist is something that you need to do. In fact, you probably know that you should be doing it more than you are. If you’re one of the millions of Americans who doesn’t go to the dentist every six months, you could be putting your dental health at risk.

However, finding the right dentist for you isn’t always easy. Use this guide to help you learn more about finding the perfect Brooklyn NY dentist to suit your needs.

You’ll look and feel better when you visit the dentist regularly.

Ask Around

When you’re trying to find a dentist, one of the most important things you can do is ask people you know for a referral. Whether you turn to friends, family or even your coworkers, most people are going to tell you how they really feel about theirs.

If a person doesn’t like the dentist they go to, they’ll probably tell you that he or she isn’t the best. You can cross those people off your list now. When somebody tells you they have a great dentist, those people are ones you should deal with.

Sometimes personal referrals really are the best way to find what you’re looking for. Just make sure the person you’re asking is really a customer, not just somebody trying to promote their brother or cousin’s dental practice.

What About Insurance?

Insurance plays a huge role in picking a dentist for most people. After all, dental procedures can be expensive, and even people with a decent income can find it tough to pay the whole bill at once.

Try to find a dentist that is covered through your insurance plan, or if you don’t have insurance, consider getting it. Discount plans are also an option for many people, and unlike dental indemnity insurance, you don’t usually have to wait on getting work done at a reduced price.

Dental Concerns

If you have dental concerns or work that you think you might need to get done, choosing a dentist can be a bit more difficult. Ideally, you should find a dentist who specializes in what you’re looking for.

Do you need somebody for basic care and maintenance? Are you looking to get cosmetic work done? What about root canals and emergency treatment?

Evaluate your needs before you choose a dentist.

Sydney Wanderers vs Melbourne City Soccer Match

Still here at my vacation in Australia and one of the many things that my sister and her family loves doing is to watch a soccer game. Yesterday, we went to see the match between Sydney Wanderers vs Melbourne City at Parramata Stadium. The stadium is not that full but had 14K plus attendance.

I never really like soccer that much but watching the games live at a stadium is a different experience.  I have watched the games for 3rd time now. We are rooting for Sydney Wanderers and thankfully they won 4-3 at an intense match last night.  And oh... my fave player now is no.

Ideas For Cremated Remains

After a family member passes away, there are a few options that you have when it comes to what is done with the body. You can have a traditional funeral with a casket so that the loved one is placed in a cemetery. This is common and offers a way for others to go to a place where they can place flowers on a grave or see a memorial for the person who has passed. Another option is cremation. This is less expensive, and instead of keeping the remains in an urn, there are a few other ideas that you can do with the remains so that the person is still close to you.

A keepsake bracelet is one option that you have when it comes to the ashes. There is a small amount placed in a bracelet, and the remaining ashes are often buried, placed in a mausoleum or scattered. If the person had a favorite place to visit while alive, then scattering the ashes there would be a way to remember the positive things instead of thinking about the pain that is often associated with death.

Another option that you have after getting a piece of jewelry made is to bury the ashes in an urn at your home. Find a tree in the backyard, create a stone memorial so that you have a marker, and bury the urn under the tree. You can also create a garden with a bench and flowers so that you have somewhere to sit while you are remembering your family member. Some people will use the ashes as a base for a tree. There are companies that will use the ashes to create a sapling that can be buried at your home. This can be a symbol of new life from one who has passed away.

If you want to do something that is symbolic of the person leaving their earthly home, then consider placing the ashes in a helium balloon, and let the balloons float through the air. You can attach a note to the balloon about what is inside or simply say that you love the person who has passed.

A Different Christmas and New Year Down Under

I'm still on a holiday here in Australia and it's my 4th time to be here. It's always nice to come here as I call it my second home. I was fortunate enough again to stay here for 3 months until Feb. 21 and I'm really enjoying my stay.

Our Christmas and New Year celebrations are quiet far cry from what I am used to back in the Philippines. Our Christmas day started with the opening of Santa's gifts by the kids and opening gifts from all of us. I was more than happy to open my gifts as well. I got a Samsung Tab and Pandora Sydney charm from sister, Fossil watch from my BIL, Fossil leather wallet from niece and a mug with my name on it. Love all of them. haha

Off we went to our 10- day Coffs Harbour holiday before New Year and it was one of the best holidays that we had. New Year's Eve was even more quiet. Just watched the 9 pm Sydney fireworks on TV and had an early dinner.  It would be nice if I can wait for 12 midnight to strike but too sleepy to do that so off to dreamland at around 11

Sis stayed while the kids and I are already sleeping already. HAPPY NEW YEAR all!

Christmas Shopping

Wow, only few more days and it;s Christmas once again. This year it will be very different for me since I will be celebrating it here in Australia for the first time. I know that Christmas here can be different from what I am accustomed back home but shopping is always not to be missed.

 Before even flying here in Sydney, I already had my Christmas shopping in Pinas that i brought them here. I had them wrapped just the other day and now they are sitting down at the Christmas tree while the kids are excited to see them.

My sister and I had been busy buying gifts for her family too. We have been to a lot of shops looking for some Starwars stuff for her eldest son while some toys for her lil girl. Parents are busy shopping, all store are jam-packed looking for the perfect gift for their loved ones. MIDI controllers, musical stuff, toys and other items are being sold like hotcakes in some stores.

By now, my nephew and niece are excited, they are even having a countdown till Christmas day to come for they know that they will receive gifts from their parents and from Santa as well. I'm pretty excited too as well as I know I can receive some gifts as well. :)

My Australian Vacation 2015

I was given a 3-month Australian Visa last Nov. 14th after applying for a Family Sponsored Tourist Stream. I'm more than happy and thankful after I got the news. My sister just had an operation so she needed me back in Australia to support her and help around the house.

I flew to Australia via Cebu Pacific on Nov. 22 and it's my Day 16th as of this writing. It was my 4th time to be here in Australia and I'm always excited to be here in Sydney. I had no problems with the immigration or during my flight. I just declared all the food and medicines that I bought and they didn't even bother to open my luggage which is good.

We have been to many places already. My sister and I have been shopping here and there already and the only thing that bothers me is my Most of the women's clothes are size 8 and up and I could only fit on size 6 which is sometimes equivalent to XS.. yay so I just had few items bought.

We have so many things and places to do around here in Sydney and I can't wait for more adventures.

Three Natural Ways To Start Enhancing Your Health Now

In this contemporary era, many Americans find that they suffer from energy deficits, negative moods, constipation, obesity, and numerous other health issues that detract from the quality of life. However, you don't have to exist in this lackluster state. To break the cycle of illness and embrace a world of wellness, start implementing the strategies outlined below:

1. Invest In Motivational Interviewing.

As many psychologists know, motivational interviewing is a collaborative effort that involves a medical professional providing her or his client with the skills and encouragement necessary to promote internal motivation and a resolve to change. Motivational interviewing is an effective medical technique that many natural health practitioners now utilize to encourage clients who want to change their lifestyles in order to embrace holistic wellness. Doctors such as Dr. Bryan MD offer this service in conjunction with several other natural health techniques, including acupuncture and weight management. Click here to learn more about Dr. Bryan's medical practice and how he can assist you on your journey to outstanding health.

2. Start Juicing.

Although juicing has become incredibly popular in the last ten years and is now viewed as a fad by many people, you shouldn't view it in this light. In fact, juicing is a very legitimate health practice that involves enabling people to flood their bodies with a steady stream of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that help remove toxins, hydrate, and accelerate cellular removal. Juicers are relatively inexpensive, especially if you purchase a refurbished one. Moreover, juices can taste delicious even as they provide you with the nutrition that your body needs to detox and regenerate itself so that you can function optimally.

3. Rest.

It's no secret that many Americans don't get enough sleep. Unfortunately, a lack of sleep can have a plethora of unwanted health consequences, one of which includes overeating. The cure for a lack of sleep is simple: sleep. However, many people don't know what to do in order to break the cycle of insomnia or overworking that precludes them from rest. Luckily, there are numerous sleep techniques you can start implementing now to ensure that you attain all the rest you need and deserve. One great technique is meditation. Emptying your mind of the day's concerns helps get you into a mindful, rested state that can help you make a smooth transition into the world of sleep.

Pursue An Absolutely Amazing Life Right Now

If you're ready to get healthy and lead the amazing life you deserve to have, it's important to start implementing effective wellness strategies right now. To get started, be sure that you consider the value of motivational interviewing, juicing, and rest. Good luck!

Review: Rejuvenating Set by Dr. Alvin of Professional Skin Care Formula

A friend of mine has been encouraging me to use this Rejuvenating Set by Dr. Alvin of Professional Skin Care Formula (PSCF) because she has used it. In fairness, now, she has glowing and almost flawless face.

After so much thought and courage, I decided to try it this year. Bought a new rejuvenating set for Php 300.00 from my aunt who's also bugging me to try it. Ok, fine....

Rejuvenating Set Includes:
1  Kojic Soap
1 Rejuvenating Toner
1 Rejuvenating Cream
1 Sunblock - SPF 15 PA++

 NOTE: BEWARE OF FAKES. ! Only buy at reputable sellers and dealers. The products must have seals and logos of PSCF. I will show you in details in photos.

Seals and logo. Look for expiration date at the bottom of the bottles while on tubes and soap it is printed.

Morning - Wash face and neck with Kojic Soap. Leave for about a minute or so (pero pag mag matagal mo na ginagamit sandali na lang kasi medyo mahapdi).
- Apply Rejuvenating Toner on face. Let it dry. What I did was to put about 4 or 5 drops on cotton pads or balls then slightly wipe it on my face.  Don;t rub too hard!
~ Apply sunblock especially when you go out. You can opt to use a sunblock with much higher SPF 40-50 since the sunblock that was included has only SPF 15.

Night - Wash Face and Neck (don't forget) with Kojic.
~ Apply Toner
~ Apply Rejuvenating Cream

Avoid the eye area..

NOTE: Do not use if you are pregnant, lactating or if you're under 12 years old. If too much irritation or allergies, stop using it.

Use the Rejuvenating toner for ONLY 30 DAYS! The 1st 2 Weeks are crucial, I mean "TIIS GANDA" talaga but at the end the pains are all worth it.

WARNING: This is a detailed post of my experience:
DAY 1 (Sept. 27, 2015)  - I started at night. Light stinging.
DAY 2 - Light stinging. Mahapdi ng konti
DAY 3 - My face is slightly red
DAY 4 - Woke up with an itchy chin. Face feels hot.
DAY 5 - Micro peeling already. Slight reddish face.
           ~ Lips "burning" - sensitive kasi ang lips ko pag nag dadry. (though hindi lalagyan ang lips ha!)
          - I stopped using the toner bec. it's a little uncomfortable for me na.
DAY  6 - more micro peeling
DAY 7 - More peeling on face, nose, forehead. Face feels magaspang (of course bec. of the peeling)
DAY 8 - Itchiness on neck area.. Small rashes on neck area.. yay.. Bearable naman.
           - Shiny face bec. of the toner.
DAY 9 - shiny face but not oily
DAY 10 - peeling pa more
DAY 11 - Woke up with a slight red patch on my lower right cheek. Face slightly mahapdi.
              -Medyo maantak ang neck area, sweating too on face bec. it's hot that day. To relieve the hotness and pain, I washed my face with water.
             - Dead skin washed off from my neck area.

DAY 12 - Woke up with "maantak" face and chin area but bearable. More dead skin are washed off.
DAY 13 - Woke up with a red scratch mark from my face probably due to rubbing of my face on my pillow or I accidentally scratch it when I'm asleep.
DAY 14 - Tight face but feels soft !! Slight peeling
DAY 15 - Skin smooth to touch especially after washing the face. Less shiny.
DAY 16 - Acne marks on my chin are still visible. My niece noticed my nice skin.. naks!
DAY 17 - Smooth but my T-zone is still oily. My blackheads became less.
   - Note: Be careful when wiping or touching face bec. your face is sensitive at this time. I had a few scratch my neck and face though.

DAY 18 - I can let kojic soap stay on my face for about 1 min. now.. Less stinging. New acne appears on my chin area.
DAY 19 - micro peeling on mouth area . Tight feeling after taking a bath. Parang binanat hehe.
DAY 20 - same "tight"or dry face. Some areas are itchy.
DAY 21 - new fresh acne on my chin area.. yay!

----- I STOPPED USING THE REJUV SET FOR 2 DAYS bec. I was at the hospital not because of using it but bec. of my vertigo . Anyway, I just resumed it afterwards.

DAY 22 - more dead skin are being washed off.. Yey! Skin is clearer!
DAY 23 - reddish face again (but not too red!)
DAY 24 - shiny face
DAY 25 - face feels dry. Peeling near mouth area.
DAY 26 - more dead skin washed off
DAY 27 -dry face but skin looks nice
DAY 28 - tight face. Acne on chin still there
DAY 29 - tight face feeling but it will go away when sunblock is used
DAY 30 (Sept. 28, 2015) -  Not all of my blackheads are removed. Acne marks on chin are less visible. Smoother face, glowing skin and clearer face.

~ The smell of the toner is not that strong. It's painful when applied (of course! ) that's when you  know it's working. You can place an electric fan in front of you while applying or you can skip naman if you want if you think your skin can't take it any longer.

~ We all have different skin types so we'll experience different side effects. It's your own discretion if you want to continue or not when redness or rashes appears.

~Don't use any other product while under the treatment. I don''t use any even powder.

~Overall, the result was good on my face. My relatives saw the difference. They noticed that my skin looks "brighter" and fairer. Personally, I loved the effect on my skin.

~My skin face is not that bad to start with, I just wanted dead skin to peel off and made my skin softer and glowing and end result is ok naman.

~I can recommend this product to anyone with blemishes, dark spots and acne marks etc.

~I just bought CLARIFYING SET yesterday and will use it soon. Will do a review too once I'm done. I just wanted a maintenance set kasi sayang pag bumalik sa dati face ko.. but my aunt gave me this clarifying set.

NOTE: This is NOT a sponsored post. I bought the product myself.
