Choose Your Crown Jewel with RoyalTea Candle #ProductReview

Our veteran has to work on Veterans Day which is a bummer so we wanted him to  come home  on a relaxing  setting.  The kids and I cleaned the house and  cooked him  a special dinner.  We  lit a candle  which  set the mood of our home as relaxing as it can be.  He works 10 hours  so I know that he is exhausted.  
 The vanilla bean candle  smells so  divine as soon as we opened the package from RoyalTea Candle.  I have worked with  some candle company in the past but RoyalTea is different in many ways.  For one, their candle  container is just beautiful.  The common  containers  out there are like  regular candle jars but theirs are shaped differently and so unique.  
I love their company name, RoyalTea.  RoyalTea not only  produces great smelling candles but they also include   sweet surprise element to it by adding  jewelry.  It's called RoyalTea for a reason, that's because you can choose your crown jewel.  You can choose to have a ring or  necklace to go with your preferred  scent of candles.  The jewelry  is safely  wrapped in foil and embedded in each candle.  The  hand selected piece of jewelry is valued $10 and up to $3,000. 
You can just pull  the chain when you see the foil to reveal your crown jewel.  I even liked the chain  and the little brand   tag that says "Pull Me"  It's pretty cute.  
It really  makes our home smells  delicious!  My husband  thought that we baked something when he opened the door and smelled the vanilla  scent from the candle.
This Vanilla Bean will be a great choice to light   for special occasion.  Each candle cost $25 which is cheaper than most candles with jewelry out there.

Here is the cute necklace that  got from the candle.  The key pendant is elegant, a good piece for a gift!  This would be a great gift idea for a librarian or a teacher.  The key necklace is simple bu0t  beauiful! It is  crafted in sterling  silver with a rhodium plating.  The pendant comes with an 18 inch chain.  
I can't wait to use the Christmas Tree scent for the holidays.  My kids have been wanting to light it already but I am saving it for Christmas so we capture the spirit of the holidays with its strong and festive scent.  This is supposed to be infused with pine and cedar wood essential oils, so this would really give our home that  Christmas atmosphere.  When I opened it, it smells like a fresh cut tree, it makes me miss my Dad actually.  I used to go with him  when we have to get some fire wood and the smell of  freshly cut tree is something that I haven't smelled in a long time.  This brings back  childhood memories for me.

Little Black Dress from a Friend

A friend of mine, gave  me tis Abody little black dress for my birthday a couple of years ago.  I love that it fit me perfectly except on the belly area.  It showcase my  belly fat but other than that, I love this dress.
Losing the belly fat is really hard.  I have been doing  planks, some sit ups, and other  things but I feel like this unwanted fat is  here to stay.  I wish I could discipline myself to do the work out regularly though.  Sometimes, the laziness in me kicks in and I told myself, oh well, I am not the only one with  this kind of problem.  Then when I look at myself in the mirror, I don't like what I see.  I think the solution to this is to  look at myself in the mirror  in order to motivate myself to work out regularly lol, the problem is, I don't like looking in the mirror.
I am just happy that I am healthy.  Even with bulging belly, I am blessed  and fortunate enough to have a comfortable life.  I just need to work on  self confidence a little bit more.
My goal is to keep my active lifestyle.  I sometimes fall on eating not-so-healthy food so I have to work on that as well, to not  to give up on temptation like eating donuts and pizza.  I just can't help it  when  I see my lovelies eating them lol.
This Fall, I promise to keep going on what I have started  this year.  I don't want to  use the cold weather as an excuse for not  working out.  So far, I am  doing okay but I know I can do  so much better of what I am doing now.  I just need  extra motivation.  

Red Dress Turned into Skirt

This is the dress that my  husband bought and  gave as a gift about 7 years agoIt fits on my body but I don't like that it is  open at the back and it's too revealing at the front so I cut it and made it into skirt.  Now I can use it and pair it with a black blouse.  I love the fit  on my tosh.  
 Ews ua  my favorite color so I have  several  pieces of clothing in  this color.  
I  bought this shoes  for $4.99 at the mall last year, it was on clearance .  I love when I can find great bargains without  sacrificing the quality of the product.  Most of my clothes are bought on clearance or on sale.  The only time I get expensive  clothes is when hubby would buy it without me knowing it.  My husband does not  really look at the price, when he sees something that he  he think would look good on me, he would buy it without considering of the price.  I am the opposite.  For me, you can really find  good clothes even without spending too much.

The Health Benefits of Rock Climbing

Rock climbing has long been regarded as the sort of pastime you undertake when you’re young, carefree and blissfully ignorant of your own limitations, much like bungee jumping, sky diving, or voting for the Green Party. You don’t do it for the practical benefits, you do it for the rush, the freedom and because you can just imagine the looks of your parents’ faces if they could see what you were doing!

Or is it just that to it, after all?

In actuality, rock climbing does have many benefits not just to your self-esteem and sense of free-spirited adventure, but also many health benefits too. In hindsight, this may be obvious. Rock climbing involves every muscle in your body to fulfil a very physically demanding task. But what are the benefits exactly?

Stronger Muscles, Stronger Heart
A common misconception about rock climbing is that it’s all in the upper-body and that it all requires is some strong arms and shoulders. This is actually only partially true. Getting up a boulder or cliff face does require a good deal of strength in the shoulders, but equally important are strong legs, careful balance and lean muscles. You’ll have a lot harder time climbing up a wall if you had 300lbs of muscle compared to 220lbs. Indeed, you can expect to see improvements in:
  • Your arms and shoulders
  • Your thighs
  • Back and neck
  • Forearms
  • And your heart – don’t forget that’s a muscle too.
As mentioned above, rock climbing is a very physically demanding exercise that utilises pretty much every area of your body. Even your fingers and toes will get a work out from having to grip and find purchase on a variety of different surfaces. The body becomes stronger, more durable and able to take on more punishment than ever before too long.

Not only does it build strength, but it also builds agility flexibility. As all the movement is very natural and free formed, as opposed to the more rigid and repeated exercises you may undergo in a gym, your body builds strength while also being moved around in a variety of ways. This stretches out the muscles, allowing for a greater range of movement than would otherwise be possible. A rock climber can be just as strong as a weight-lifter while still being able to easily move any part of their body.

Likewise, stamina also improves immensely. Again, every muscle is utilised when climbing, so the workout can be very exhausting. Your cardiovascular system can quickly see its performance improved several times over, allowing for longer, more difficult climbs with less exertion.

The Mind and Spirit
As well as physical health benefits, you can also see less obvious improvements after taking the time to learn rock climbing. Perhaps among the first things noticed is improved confidence. When you can climb up a cliff face like a set of stairs, you’ll quickly learn you can do anything if you set your mind to it. In addition, you’ll also be a lot calmer and more focused as all exercise helps to reduce stress and anxiety, improving your mental well-being and by extension your physical well-being as well.
Your brain will also receive a workout as the activity frequently involves problem solving, working out effective strategies and constantly calculating distances and times. It also demands focus, clarity and constantly thinking only of the task in hand, in many ways a mind-state similar to meditation. The mental benefits that can be gleaned from rock climbing are among the most overlooked, but can also provide the most overall benefit to a climber’s lifestyle and outlook.

Perhaps another overlooked benefit is the ability to teach people to overcome fear and doubt. A fear of heights is quite natural – falling from them can really hurt, after all. However, even those with a fear of heights can undertake rock climbing, and indeed many would say that the mindset is highly beneficial. It means you respect the dangers of the sport and are more likely to take the extra precautions when undergoing it, while taking fewer risks. Eventually, the more you climb, the easier it is for individuals to start driving through their fear and undertaking greater challenges and, through them, greater rewards.

Healthy benefits occur, whether you’re a beginner practicing indoors at a facility or out conquering the great outdoors. Though, if you are climbing up and repelling down big rocks outside, be sure that you don’t leave without bringing all the proper gear. You can store everything in a light-weight, waterproof bag, like the ones Adventure Lion offers, for easy carrying.
