Express Your Love Through Flowers

I love flowers!  Flowers brighten up a room and bring cheers to anyone who sees it.  We send flowers to our loved ones on important occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, valentine's day, mother's day and in any day.  Flowers are the best gift we could give to our loved ones to express our love for them.  I do not know what is in flowers why they never fail to give joy to those who get it.  

You can send flowers even on ordinary days.  My husband knows very well how to make me happy when I don't feel good.  Just last week, my husband sent me a bouquet of green chrysanthemums delivered at work.  When I asked him what the occasion was, he said, "just because".  I displayed the flowers on my desk and everyone never failed to notice how pretty they were and they really looked fresh even after two weeks.  

These are the kinds of flowers that you get from Serenata.  They get to your recipients on time and it is very convenient and easy to order from them.  You can add chocolates with your flowers if you want.  They have a huge selection of flowers for any occasion and for "just because".  Guys, if you want to make your loved ones happy, show your love and thoughts by sending them beautiful flowers from Serenata. 

And the winner is ..... Phillip Phillips!

It has been days since the finale of American Idol and we al know who won - Phillip Phillips!  I have supported Jessica since she was saved by the judges and of course I was upset she did not win.  But I admit too, Phillip has unquestionable charms.  He also deserves the title and America has voted so we just have to accept that.  They both will have a bright careers ahead of them.  But, just for laughs, I saw this video about a mom's reaction to Jessica's losing AI.  I find this funny, lol!

The Benefits of Having A Good Facial Wash When Shaving

Why do we need a good face wash in shaving?  Why can't we just use a regular soap and water?  Of course, soap and water could be used but if you want to achieve best results, use the best facial wash.  One highly recommended is the Art of Shaving Face Wash.  While most soaps are not gentle to the skin, the Art of Shaving Face Wash is not harsh to the skin. It is very gentle yet cleans your skin and gets it ready for shaving.  You can use it in the morning or evening or right before shaving. 

For a long time, my husband was sporting a beard and does not like shaving.  I talked him into shaving and told him he would look 10 years younger if he shaves, which is true.  I like guys who shave because shaving make them look clean, fresh and young.  Five years ago, I bought my husband a set of shaving kit so he had no choice but use it.  I'm glad he took my advise and he now regularly shaves and loving it.  

I guess he has mastered the art of shaving - prepare, lather up, shave, and moisturize.  Each step is important in the process and with the best shaving products, you will get the best results.  To manage his time, he does his shaving while having a his hot shower.

More than 1000 votes for Jessica!

I just made a total of 800 text votes and about 50 calls while hubby had his own share of votes.  I can say we made more that 1000 votes.  We stopped voting after an hour and a half as I did not intend to use up all my remaining text credits in my phone and husband's phone as well.  Most of my friends are voting for Jessica and I am keeping my fingers crossed that she will be the next American Idol.  If not, then so be it!  Good luck to all of us!

Live Healthy! Go Organic!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Whitney Farms. All opinions are 100% mine.

We spend a lot on food and this is one thing we cannot live without.  We are aware of the ridiculous price of vegetables in the market today especially the organic vegetables.  Organic food is much preferred because of the nutritional value we get from them as compared to non-organic products.  Studies show that a lot of the illnesses today are blamed largely on the kind of food we eat and if we want to live a healthy life, then we should start eating organic food.
Growing our own food right in our own backyards would be a great help.  We can have our own garden even with a limited space.  I am inspired by my brother who is into organic gardening.  With a very limited space, he was able to grow various kinds of plants.  He used to grow a lot of flower plants but later thought of focusing more on growing vegetables so the whole family would enjoy free healthy food.  That really makes sense, isn't it?

He planted cabbage in pots using organic soil and I want to have one like this too.

All of his plants are healthy and his secret?  He uses Whitney Farms® products.  For more than 25 years in the business, Whitney Farms has developed 100% natural plant food and soils.  Their products have proven to have low to no dust, no manure odor, easy to apply, contains beneficial microbes and the right nutrients they need to produce big, beautiful flowers and vegetables.
You can easily spot the difference between plants nourished by organic plant food from those that are not.  I love tomatoes and I want make sure I would grow organic tomato myself.

Are You Looking For Sump Pump Installation Service?

Have you been forced to get out of the house in the dead of the night right in the middle of winter?  That happened to us and my husband one winter night.  It was past midnight when we heard a loud sound of water coming from somewhere.  Then we started to feel the cold.  We found out that the basement was already flooded because the sump pump quit working.  

Poor hubby had to get down the deep cold water to try to get it fixed.  It was fixed for awhile but later, it quit again.  After many years of use, the sump pump obviously needed a replacement.  It is good to know we could get experts to do the sump pump installation and other plumbing works for us.  A flooded basement costs a lot of trouble.  We got stuff soaking wet and the cleaning that we needed to do after the flooding was not fun.  

These are basic needs that we usually take for granted.  Just a tip for every home:  make sure you keep contact numbers of your repair guys handy like hanging it on the wall or better yet, post it on your refrigerator.  You never know when you need them.  I cannot imagine losing hot water or heat during winter time.  It is harder than you think.

Jessica Sanchez made it to the top 2!

My more than 500 votes for Jessica Sanchez last night paid off!  She made it to the top 2.  I tried voting through texts this time and i sent 500 votes in just an hour.  I did not want to use all my texts last night because I want to leave more for next week.  But since I still have another hour that i could use, I tried few calls and then later did online voting too.  

I am confident that Jessica will be the next American Idol if all the Pinoy supporters will give their all out support until next week.  They have to do more than what they gave last night.  I would have loved to see Joshua Ledet with Jessica and it is just sad he was voted off. Phillip is also a great performer, each of them has a style different from each other.  Go, go, go Jessica!

The Local Marketing Experts Can Do The Job For You

Local marketing makes a lot of difference in any business - whether big or small.  Don't worry if you have no idea about it as there are local marketing experts that can do the job for you.  Today, people could easily find the answer to their questions on the net.  In my family, we do a lot of our stuff online.

My husband and I love to try different restaurants in our area because we both love to eat and we are always in the lookout for food.  When searching for something online, Google is my best friend.  Aside from Google, there are other popular search engines that could help us find what we are looking for.  With so many businesses offering similar products or services, it must be tough for small and medium size business to compete and be recognized by potential clients.  

Businesses that are seen on top of any search list always have an edge over others who are at the bottom of the list.  It is a huge challenge to be on top and maintain that position.  A local business marketing expert like OrangeSoda is what a business needs.  It has helped a lot of businesses in their local marking needs.  If you want to make sure you reach as many customers as possible, a good local marketing strategy will surely help and you will see that it really makes a difference.

Icecream or sleep?

This poor kid is so tired but he tries so hard to fight it for his icecream.  I was surprised he was able to hang on to his icecream without dropping it.  I was laughing while watching this video.  I know each of us has been in this situation one time in our life.

A New Lease In Life Through Aortic Aneurysm Repair

For many people who have suffered from aneurysm, the Aortic Aneurysm Repair has given them a new lease in life.  My brother-n-law, while driving to work one morning, just suddenly passed out in the middle of the road.  Luckily, he was rushed to the nearest hospital and was later found out he had aneurysm.  I had no idea about this illness until it happened to my brother-in-law.  Because of the attack, he underwent a surgery that saved his life.  

I learned that people with aneurysm do not even know they have it.  My brother-in-law said he never felt any signs of the disease before the attack.  I guess that is why it is called a silent disease.  Nowadays, aneurysm patients are given a lot of options about the medications or procedure that would meet their needs.  No each patient is the same, meaning each has his own needs and preferences and a different set of issues regarding their disease.  

At NYU Cardiac and Vascular Institute, this is what they want to address - to provide a personalized kind of managing your disease.  With a pool of experts in this kind of disease, patients are assured they are given the right kind of treatment for their disease.  If you or someone you know has aneurysm, it would greatly help to discuss with the experts about your illness and how you want to deal with it.  At NYU, they are always ready to listen to you.  Discuss with them your concerns so they know how to approach your disease and rest assured you will get the best treatment that you could hardly find elsewhere.

Using Medical Alerts in Cases of Medical Emergency

When a medical emergency happens, there are a lot of people who are not sure of how to manage the situation and take care of those who are involved.  More often than not, whether it is a medical emergency, or any other kind of emergency, it is often a very stressful situation, which many people do not want to have to go through.  Some of the more common situations are problems that people have with their health like diabetes, various kinds of heart conditions, or things like epilepsy.  All of these conditions can be fatal if they are not closely monitored.

There is a lot of work and training that goes into being prepared for any kin of emergency situation.  There are those people who train in things like first aid, and CPR, both of which can help to save lives in an emergency situation.  There are also those people who are elderly or disabled, and they end up having to live alone for one reason or another.  Most of the time this is because the person who is living alone does not have any family living around and they need a way to be able to live on their own without having to inconvenience their family and friends.  For this, there are those who depend on some sort of medical alert system that can assist those who are in need.  Many of these medical alert systems involve a device that you wear around your neck, which allows the user to push a button that is located on the device.  Once the button is pushed, it connects you to the people who are managing the device.  These are professionals who are able to contact the local emergency medical personnel in your area.  This kind of service is especially useful to have for those patients who are elderly, because it does not involve having to use a phone service, so there is no dialing, or other kinds of frustration that there otherwise might be if the patient were dialing a phone themselves, and trying to explain to the operator what the situation is.  Many times in a medical emergency such as falling and not being able to get up, there is a problem with being able to locate a phone.  This could present a problem, because the person in trouble would not be able to just get up and get to a phone.  This is part of what makes these kinds of devices so handy to have.
