Where To Find The Best Shaving Kits For Men

My husband has been shaving most of his life.  I am just wondering why he did not want to spend on a good shaving kit for men as much as he does on his gadgets. I would always tease him that he is cheap.  Seeing him with those nicks, cuts and bleeding seemed normal for him after he shaves.  Shaving for him became like a chore that he does not enjoy doing.  Sometimes, he would skip a week of not shaving until I would beg him to do so.  

Last year, we went to spend Christmas in the Philippines.  I took care of the packing and everything that we needed for the trip.  Since my husband would be spending his birthday there, I decided to buy him a special birthday present, something that he needed and could use for the trip.  I searched online and asked my friends for suggestions.  My boss highly recommended that I check the Art of Shaving site and so I did.  

I was interested in getting him a shaving kit but at first, I was not sure if I was willing to pay that much on one.  After some serious thoughts, I realized my husband deserves something special.  I got him a shaving kit and I'm glad I did.  I wished I have known about this before so I could have changed his shaving experience a long time ago.

My husband could not deny that he really enjoys his kit.  While he hates shaving before, now he enjoys doing it.  I got my husband the Sandalwood Full Size Kit and I just love the smell and the smooth, clean and close shave my husband gets after he shaves.  My husband says that even some of his friends have noticed the difference.  With his kit, he no longer gets those nicks, cuts and razor burns.  

This is a perfect gift to the special men in your life who are shaving or want to shave.  Whatever you would pay for it is all worth it.  The Art of Shaving products will take your shaving experience to a higher level.  So guys, if you want to get noticed, get yourself the best shaving kit.  Don't be cheap guys, try The Art of Shaving!

I got to start on my diet today!

Procrastination - that is the worst attitude i have.  I have been meaning to start on a meaningful diet ages ago and it has remained as a great plan and has never materialized.  In fairness, i always start my diet in the same day --- tomorrow, lol!  There is always tomorrow but our health is deteriorating as we get older if we do not take care of it.  Seriously, i really need to start my diet not tomorrow but today, NOW!

If life is a journey.....

I asked my husband to get me a small fridge and put it next to my computer desk so i don't have to get up and walk to the kitchen when i need  something to eat or drink from the fridge.  He told me it is my only form of exercise and i want to get rid of it?  Well, i agree! I really think i need more exercise as i get older but right now, it is only in my mind.  It has never been materialized yet and i hope sooner i will realize that i should start and get moving!

Hire The Best Wedding Caterer For Less Stressful Wedding Preparations

Hiring a wedding caterer will save the marrying couple and their families from a lot of trouble that a wedding preparation brings.  Planning a wedding requires a lot of time and effort.  It takes at least a year to plan a nice wedding.  What is funny is the wedding ceremony itself only takes an hour to finish.  During the wedding preparation, it is expected that couples go through a lot of stressful situations.  It is not surprising some of them even break up right before the wedding date because of these so-called "wedding jitters".  

The wedding day should be the happiest moment in the life of the couple.  The bride should be most beautiful on her special day.  To spare them from some of the common hassles, wedding should be planned well with the help of a wedding planner.  The preparation and planning of the food alone is already a huge task.  Why not give this task to a wedding planner and let them take care of everything? 

My sister's wedding was a big wedding with some 300 guests.  Before the wedding, we bought some cooking utensils, hired cooks and other people to help in the food preparations. Some friends and relatives were nice enough to lend some sets of silverwares and helped in the preparation.  We invited some 200 guests but close to 300 showed up which was unexpected.  This caused panic to those who prepared the food.  Obviously, there was something wrong in the planning.  

Everyone was already exhausted days before the wedding until after the wedding.  There was a lot of cleaning up to do.  We had to make sure everything borrowed had to be returned clean.  As expected, there were missing stuff so we had no choice but to replace them with new ones.  It was a nightmare collecting these stuff and I learned a big lesson from that experience.  

When it was my turn to get married, I made sure I hired the best wedding caterer for our wedding.  It really saved us from the hassles of food preparation and work, before, during and even after the wedding.  Husband and I had time to relax a bit and focus on making our wedding day a memorable moment for us and our families.

I hate numbers!

When i was a kid, i love numbers.  Math was one of my favorite subjects in school.  As i got older, i feel i have become dumb when it comes to numbers.  I guess i became too dependent on calculators to the point i could not do without it.  Numbers are important and in everything we do in our daily life, there is always a number associated with it.  I am starting to hate it, lol!  But hey, it is just a number!

Tempurpedic For A Healthy Back

There are a lot of factors that contribute to back pain but one thing that we usually take for granted is the kind of mattress and foam that we use in sleeping.  For many years, I thought that sleeping in a water bed is the solution to back pain.  Unfortunately, I have been dependent on pain medication until I heard about Tempurpedic a year ago.  My husband bought me a tempurpedic pillow after I tried different kinds of pillows that I could find.  

I love my tempurpedic pillows for the comfort and the right support for my neck, shoulders and back.  One of my friends who is suffering from back pain due to scoliosis suggested that we also try tempurpedic mattress because that is what her doctor advised her to use.  With the tempurpedic bed, she said she has never been so comfortable in her life. It was not easy to convince my husband to replace the water bed to a tempurpedic bed but he finally agreed on getting one.  So far, he has not complained about his nagging back pain and I believe it was because of the bed.  

Bad posture is also one of the most common causes of back pain.  Most of us are not conscious about our posture but we do not realize how it affects our health.  In my kind of work, I sit in front of the computer all day.  This, and the stress at work put a strain on me at the end of the day.  I always feel pain around my neck, my shoulders and my back and the doctor blames stress for it. One nice trick to avoid neck, shoulder and back pains at work is to try to do some simple stretching exercises every 30 minutes if possible.  Also try to observe proper posture.

For those who suffer from back pain or want to have a healthy back, consider tempurpedic.  You can find a lot of great deals right now at Healthy Back so check it out.  A good nigh sleep, the comfort and right support is what a tempurpedic offers.  After a hard day's work, I think I deserve one.  How about you?

Pick The Best Horse Saddles For A Great Ride

There is a saying that a person's character can be measured by the way that person treats his or her pets or animals.  It means that if you are cruel to animals, you are most likely a cruel person.  My family loves pets.  I think they are lovable and they deserve our love and care like a family.  Unfortunately, there are so many animals out there that need our love and care.  You really do not have to spend a lot of money to own a pet by getting them from pet shops.  If you are looking to have a pet, you can check it out with shelterlist.  

Speaking of animals and pets, my youngest daughter is so fascinated about horses. She usually spends her weekends with my cousin who owns a number of horses.  My cousin has been a great influence to my daughter about horses.  Since my daughter learned to ride horses, no one can take her away from this hobby.  I thought I would not be comfortable riding horses but she insists that I should try to see how comfortable it would be especially with a nice saddle.  My cousin invested a lot on prestige saddles.  These are pricey but really worth it.  

The kind and quality of saddles affect one's performance as a rider.  Your choice of saddles really depends on your preference.  My cousin buys saddles in Spain and my daughter agrees that these saddles are really nice.  Whether you own and ride horses as a personal hobby or for business use, it is important to pick the best saddles for a great ride!

Remembering 9/11 ....

Where were you when the bombing on 9/11 happened?  I guess each of us has our own story to share.  I was studying that time in Australia when the bombings on that day happened.  We were crying while listening and watching the news.  It was aweful! I still wonder how it happened. How could a powerful country like America not know about it?  How come they were more concerned about international security to the point they neglected the national security.  I thought the US has the best intelligence office.  Why was it not detected and if they did, why did they let it happen?  There are a lot of questions in my mind all these years but they seem left unanswered. We should not forget  9/11 and learn from it! I hope and pray that the families of those who perished in the bombings have slowly moved on with their lives.

Why Use Straight Razor Blades In Shaving

The use of straight razor blades in shaving is traditional but an excellent way of shaving.  I grew up seeing my father doing it when I was young and now my husband is doing the same.  Nowadays, there are shaving products and gadgets that can help shaving done quickly and easily.  Despite this, a lot of guys still prefer straight razor shaving for several reasons.  

For many years, my husband has been sporting a beard until recently when he decided to give in to my request to shave it off.  I have been talking him into totally shaving off his beard because to me, he would look younger without a beard.  I personally think that men with smoothly shaved face look and smell clean and fresh.  Straight razor shaving can give them this look. 

Straight razor shaving, if done right, gives the closest shave you can get, leaving your skin so smooth and clean.  Those who are into it could swear by it.  The modern way may be quicker but more expensive and the result is not as excellent as that of straight razor shaving.  Straight razor shaving may need some skills to perfect it but once you get the hang of it, you would stick with it.  

It may cost more up front but once you got all the tools, you may never buy another razor for years.  You may need to buy some shaving products which you can find at very affordable costs.With the modern method on the other hand, you would spend a lot on disposable blades or electric razors, which will be more costly in the long run.  Straight razor shaving is also environment-friendly and since you have to do it slow, most men find it relaxing as it is the only time when they need to slow down; otherwise, they would end up hurting themselves.  

As long as you pick the best quality straight razor blades and you know how to take care of it, you will be fine.  The most important thing in straight razor shaving is hot water.  For best results, wash your face with soap and hot water; the hotter the water, the better.  Let it penetrate the hair for few minutes before you start shaving.  Check out some shaving products that are good for you but as I said, hot water will do the trick!

I cannot be a call center...

My two daughters work as call center agents.  I know it is not an easy job.  With the work schedule that is constantly changing plus dealing with problem customers, i could say i salute them for doing the job because i could say i can never be a call center agent.  I just don't have the patience.  Here is one case:
