Center for Music and Arts

We went to the Center for Music and Arts last weekend, the place where we bought our piano last year.  We informed them that the guy who delivered  it never  returned to tune it as we have agreed   that it would be tuned  as part of the deal when we bought it..  Anyway, they said that they will contact him and let  him know.  The guy called us and said that he is coming this Tuesday.  While we were there, we looked around and see some  galaxy audio and other music  and arts stuff.  Below are some of the photo I took.  
Do you notice that the establishment's roof looks like a  musical instrument?  I am not sure if  it's a grand piano or a shape of a guitar.  
After our trip there, we  dropped by at the mall and   have the kids played miniature golf.  That would be another post  folks.  Thanks for dropping by.

Bongo Roll Tub Sleeve Top

I am wearing the plus roll tub sleeve top that I bought for $2.99 at Sears.  Bongo  clothing were on sale when I chanced to drop by at  the  store  last week.    I did not have time to  try this on at the store since I saw this when we were leaving already so I grabbed the small one which  a bit tighter but I can still wear it.  The medium one would have been a good size for me for this one.  

I love it that I can wear it with jeans or with leggings and it is comfy as it is  made of 100% cotton.  My clogs looks good with it too.  Again, my  big thanks  goes to the little man who took this picture.    

How to deal with a Vindictive Spouse in a Divorce

Divorce is never an easy process. A vindictive spouse is an element that can make a divorce more difficult than it already is. Vindictive spouses exist in almost 50 percent of divorce cases. Emotions are typically the root cause of some of the vindictiveness. The woman may feel that she lost time and efforts on a person who did not appreciate it. The man may feel he worked hard and did not receive the proper respect. Jealousy and anger play a role in these situations most of the time. 

Not being able to work out agreements with a spouse before the court hearing can prolong the process. Battling over child custody, assets, and support can be as taxing as the process is lengthy. Therefore, a man or woman who is having issues with the spouse may have to refer to a legal specialist for help. The divorce process can be very taxing on both parties and when kids are involved expect that the emotional toll will increase exponentially.

Dealing With a Vindictive Spouse

Dealing with a vindictive spouse may seem difficult. However, someone has to deal with the person to complete the divorce. The best way for the non vindictive spouse to deal with the vindictive spouse is to ignore negativity and antagonizing. The vindictive spouse will want to create drama and possibly use it against the other spouse. Ignoring such provocations will cut down some of the chaos. If some of the chaos starts to get out of hand and using the ignoring tactic no longer works, you may have to involve authorities to protect yourself and your interests. 

A vindictive spouse may also attempt to withhold children from the other parent for visitation and then try to use that incident against the parent. This is a tricky subject that again must be handled very carefully. The best way to handle this is for the violated party to document each time the vindictive spouse has denied visitation. During the hearing, an attorney can bring up these points. The court frowns upon parents who do not attempt to foster healthy relationships between the child and the other parent. Such denial may determine the court’s assignment of custody. 

A person should seek advice from an attorney if the other spouse is behaving in an irrational manner. A well-seasoned attorney can deal with the vindictive spouse formally to prevent contact between the bickering parties. This person can act on the innocent spouse’s behalf or begin mediating. A reliable attorney can also file a motion for a restraining order if the vindictive spouse becomes violent or participates in harassment of any kind. 

If you are in a messy divorce and do not yet have representation, it is imperative that you find established counsel. Most lawyers offer free consultations or inexpensive consultations. In this meeting the attorney will go more in depth about the services that he or she can offer to help. When interviewing an attorney for your divorce, make sure that they are well versed in your particular situation.

Levis Jeans and Bongo Fleece Jacket

I bought me a new  hooded fleece jacket at Sears last weekend.  It is a Bongo brand  and it was on sale for $19.99.  I was going to get the red one but I already has a red coat so I took the brown one.  

It seems like I have been shopping a lot lately but I am not spending an arm and a leg for my purchases.  I  am just taking  opportunity of low prices as the  there are so many off season sale in different stores.

The other day, I found out that KMart was  having a 90% off sale on summer  clothes so I went and bought some.

The jeans was the Levis that I  snugged for $16 during the opening of the TJ Maxx in Steubenville.
Thanks to my 6 year old son for taking the photos.

Sea Bucksthorn Facial Cleanser - when I first use this, it gave me  some pimples but I think it was because my skin was not really use to using  any exfoliating  product but afterwards, the result was  satisfactory.  What I like about this one is that it  does not only exfoliate your skin but it also detoxify it so it leaves your skin  really clean and rejuvenated.  You can buy this for $16.97.

Sea Bucksthorn Hydrating Serum, this is a bit  expensive $34.97) but I like what it does to your skin.  It helps  maintain your skin's moisture balance and it supports collagen production.  Before I reached the age of 40, I never really care to take care of my skin until I started seeing some fine lines that isn't appealing.  I am glad, I am  again given a chance to  use this product.

 Sea Bucksthorn Facial Cream,I love this one as well.  It  makes your skin so soft.  After you  use the exfoliating facial cleanser and you apply this afterwards, it really feels rejuvenating.  You can buy this  for $19.97.

5 Extreme Things People Go Through For Thicker Hair

Unfortunately, many people aren’t blessed with the thick, luscious hair that they desire. They struggle with hair thickening products that just don’t work. This turns them towards extreme methods to get thicker hair. Transitions Hair have compiled a list of five extreme things people go through for thicker hair.

Hair Extensions

Hair extensions are long thin lengths of hair that can be easily attached to your hair in order to add more length or to make it more voluminous. Hair extensions are a great idea for the special occasions or nights out, as they can be easily taken out the next day. However, you can get more permanent hair extensions, such as hair transplants, which are used to create more volume around the crown area of you head.

Using Feminine Products

One of the more controversial ways to obtain thicker hair is by using Miconazole Nitrate, an antifungal agent used to treat yeast infections in women. One of the reasons using feminine products is a good way to thicken your hair is because Miconazale contains an antifungal cream that that kills off fungus on your scalp that prohibits natural hair growth, allowing it to cleanse your scalp and helping your hair to grow more voluminously.

Wash Your Hair In Onion Water

You may think that onions are only good for stinging your eyes while you’re trying to chop them up for dinner, but they are also good to thicken your hair. By boiling onions and washing your hair with the water, your hair will grow extra fast and thicken overnight. The scent of the onions wont linger in your hair, though if you want to be sure, just rinse it a couple of times in cold water.

Eat More Spicy Food

Spicy food means thicker, fuller hair! Because hair loss is caused by an inadequate flow of blood to the hair follicles, certain spicy peppers increase the blood flow to your hair follicles, resulting in healthier follicles and thicker, stronger hair. If you’re not a fan of spicy foods, simply add cayenne pepper directly to your hair.

Use A Hair Nutrition Dietary Supplement

A healthy diet promotes healthy hair growth. Lifestyle problems such as unhealthy eating, and medical and emotion issues, can prevent your body from absorbing all the nutrients it needs to allow your hair to grow as full and thick as you want it to be. Significant trauma can lead to hair loss, which may be temporary, but can be permanent. Viviscal Extra Strength Hair Growth is a 100% drug free dietary supplement that is clinically proven to nourish your hair and promote healthy, thick hair growth. Its formula includes AminoMar, which has been clinically proven to help speed up the growth phase of the hair growth cycle.

If you’re struggling to get the hair you always wanted, why not try these five extreme things to get thicker, fuller hair? They may seem odd, but they really do work!

Sneaker King

All running shoes are not created equally. When it comes to finding the right shoe, the shape of your foot and your running style are far more important than designer brands. Here are some simple tips to help you find the right running shoe:

1. Know Your Terrain

Trail running. If you are an off-road runner, trail running shoes may be a good fit for you. These running shoes feature aggressive outsoles that provide more traction. The base of this shoe is also fortified to offer greater support, stability and better underfoot protection. Trail running shoes are well suited for rocky terrain, mud, tree roots and a wide range of other off-trail obstacles.
Road running. These traditional sneakers are designed for running on pavement. Although they can withstand other surfaces like nature trails and fire roads, they are best suited for pavement. This sneaker is light and very flexible. They are designed to provide your feet with comfort and stability as they make repetitious strides against solid surfaces.

2. Know Your Feet

Size. Knowing your shoe size is critical to finding comfortable, well-fitting running shoes. If you are not sure exactly what your shoe size is, you can have them measured at most major shoe retailers. Using a Brannock device, you can determine the exact size of each of your feet. You may even find that one foot is slightly larger than the other. In such a case, consider going a half size up to ensure both feet have ample space. 

Most women’s shoes are designed for a B-width foot while most men’s shoes are designed for a D-width foot. If your foot is narrow, do not be hesitant to try a women’s shoe. If your foot is wider than average, consider trying a men’s shoe. The important part is to find a shoe that is comfortable.

Arch. Your arch shape is another important factor to consider as you look for running shoes. In order to identify your arch shape, try placing your wet foot on a white sheet of paper. The shape left on the paper will help you identify your arch shape. Typically, most people have a high arch, normal arch or a flat foot. Once you know your arch type, look for shoes or inserts that provide the support you need. Stores like Sneaker King offer running shoes to suit a wide variety of arch shapes.

There are lots of factors to consider when looking for running shoes. These simple tips can help you find a shoe that provides just the right balance of support and comfort.

Mix and Match Style for Less

This is the  pair of flip flop that I  bought for  99 cents at KMart.
Sometimes, even if you are just at home, you feel the need to mix and match your   style .  Even the pot of my  plant matches lol.
I like it when I find something on sale in the store.  Immediately, you think right there and then, what can I wear that with?  I am not that good  with high fashion, I wear whatever my budget  can afford and what I feel is comfortable.

VH Nutrition Produces Appetite Stimulant For Aging Adults

A good healthy appetite is a great attribute to possess and even though it is not a factor you think about every day, appetite is connected with general health and metabolism. Having an active lifestyle, or participating in sports, or exercising also keeps your appetite alive.

As we age, most of us tend to slow down. Our metabolism changes and along with this comes a decrease in appetite. As you get older you will find that eating two hot dogs and a jumbo, hot fudge brownie sundae is not as appetizing as it used to be.

A decrease in appetite can lead to listlessness, fatigue and sometimes will negatively influence your outlook on life. Loss of appetite is not something you have to put up with; you can do something to change it!

Taking all natural appetite stimulants is a good and healthy way to increase your appetite. Eatmor Appetite Stimulant is not a medical drug, but an all-natural dietary supplement that encourages regular hunger symptoms. Eatmor has no reported harmful side effects. It is fast acting and will put healthy weight on the user in as little as a week.

You must make excessive calorie intake your goal 
and Eatmor will help you achieve that over-all goal. Taking Eatmor on an empty stomach before breakfast is reportedly the most effective plan. Breakfast is the one meal people tend to skip, so eating a wholesome breakfast on a regular basis along with Eatmor is the key element in gaining weight.

Don’t take coffee, or other stimulants with Eatmor. Stimulants create a reverse effect on the appetite and therefore render weight gain supplements powerless. When you think about all the people out there struggling to lose weight, think of the fun advantage you have of eating good food to put it on! Along with Eatmor here are a few other natural home remedies to cure appetite loss.

Natural Syrup Remedy

This is a great appetite enhancer. Blend 100 grams each of sour and sweet pomegranate juice. 250 grams each of lemon juice, apple juice, mint leaf juice and natural sugar. This soothes stomach and liver problems as well as increases appetite.

Sage Tea

Boil a teaspoon full of powdered sage in 6-8 ounces of water and drink 1-2 glasses a day. Sweeten with honey. This is a wonderful natural appetite enhancer and also cures many ailments.

Carom and Ginger Powder

For strong stomach muscles and increase in appetite mix equal amounts of carom seed and ginger powder and soak in ginger juice. Allow to dry at room temperature, grind it and salt to taste. Use 3-4 pinches in a glass of water twice a day.

Cardamom, Fennel Seed and Cumin Powder

This remedy gives you a lean, healthy body as well as increases appetite. Combine equal amounts of cardamom powder, fennel seed powder and cumin seed powder. Fry in a dry pan for 10-15 seconds. Cool and store in a glass jar. Take 4-5 pinches with water after every meal.

Drink Cold Water

Cold water speeds the digestion process and makes you hungry faster than room temperature water.

Why Choose Scottish Cashmere Sweaters

If you ask a number of people what their favorite piece of clothing is, many of them will answer something random like "my mother's scarf," "my worn out jeans, or "my little black dress." I would answer: "my cashmere collection." This is because cashmere is quite unique -- it is soft, lightweight, and extremely comfortable to wear. This material does not come from sheep, but from goats. 

Cashmere clothing can include anything from shawls and gloves to socks and hats. However, among those, the most renowned and well-loved products are cashmere sweaters.

When it comes to cashmere sweaters, one type stands above the rest: Scottish cashmere sweaters. They have long been considered the pioneers in luxury and stylishness. Scottish cashmere is said to have been produced in the 1830s and since then, has become a mark of excellence in clothing.

Although there are other types of sweaters on the market, nothing can beat a sweater that is made of Scottish cashmere for the following reasons:

Only the Best Fiber is Used
Cashmere is known as the rarest natural fiber in the world and therefore is very expensive. There are some manufacturers that sell cashmere cheap, but only Scottish cashmere sweaters have the best quality. Pieces of clothing are finely produced by companies with the right skills and experience in crafting the high quality finished products.

Herds of goats are nourished and well taken care of to ensure quality hair. These goats survive for about seven years only and their hairs are combed once they reach their second year. Unlike wool, cashmere is not sheared but it is hand-combed as the manufacturers gather the materials that they need from the animals.

A Painstaking Journey
Cashmere can be of different colors: it can be brown, gray, and pure white, which is the most precious of them all. Once the fibers have been gathered, they will be hand sorted according to their color. Most manufacturers will even categorize them based on the grade. These people are eagle-eyed due to their years of experience in selecting quality.
Raw cashmeres are matted and greasy once they arrive in Scotland. Thus, they have to be treated to remove the dust and grime using clean water that is neither hot nor cold to avoid damaging the delicate cashmere fibers. Once again, the raw materials are meticulously hand sorted, which often results in losing half the original package.

A Luxury Feel
Cashmere sweaters, when produced, cannot be rivaled by other sweaters made of man-made fiber. They are very luxurious and soft to the touch in addition to being warm and light in weight. The finished product is all thanks to around 30 different processes right from its raw state to completion of the fine quality clothing. The Scottish weavers have skills that are unmatched and the results are hard to replicate. Cashmere sweaters are ideal during winters and cold months. They actually provide more warmth than wool without being too weighty, giving you the comfort you deserve.

For hundreds of years now, cashmere clothing has become an important part in the rich cultural heritage of Scotland. With Scottish cashmere sweaters, their expertise and proficiency allow them to produce comfortable and stylish finished products that other weavers cannot reproduce.

Exploring Texas

It was the month of June when we decided to go to Texas.  It was still  cool  from our  state but  when we  landed there, oh man, it was hot!  Gladly, most of the  attractions that we explored offered covered walkways which gave us   some shade.  I think the hottest adventure we did was exploring the Alamo, we  chose the wrong day to go there as it was too hot.  I felt bad for the kids as they were  sweating  and  their cheeks looked pink!

The weather did not hinder us from having fun though.    We   tried to see different things while we were there as we never know when we could go back there again.  My kids were very fond of Shamu attraction in Sea World. They were so amazed how  these big  sea critters can be trained.  

Walking around Alamo was fun as it was very rich with history but the weather was   just intense.   I did not even have the  energy to take photos of the  beautiful surroundings. What I enjoyed there the most was the river walk attraction.  It was a relief to finally  explore the place without walking.

We definitely would want to go back there if we have a chance in the future.

Keeping on top of your legal affairs is an important administration task for any family and knowing you are legally secure regardless of the situation you have the necessary piece of mind, as well as potentially saving yourself time and money in the future.

There are several different essential legal forms you should look into depending on your circumstances, followed by those that everyone should consider a necessity. With the increase of DIY legal services such as DIY divorces and the rise of information available on the internet it has never been easier to complete some of the complex legal processes on a budget with no lawyers and their expensive bills required!

Some personal essential legal forms include a last will and testament, divorce or separation agreements. In simple cases where both of parties in the situation agree without the need for mediation or complex legal assistance these can very easily be completed by yourself. When doing this though there will be requirements such as witnesses and potential fees to file the forms so once again this shouldn’t be looked at as an easy option, it requires thorough research prior to proceeding and an evaluation as to whether this is the right route for you to take.

If you run a business or own property which you rent out you will need further legal forms, once again these should be considered an essential for your protection. Examples of such include tenancy agreements, contracts, employment contracts and terms and conditions for use of your website and/or sales and returns. When you do download free forms or purchase the premium form packs always ensure that they are valid in your state and country especially. Although most forms have the same principles there can be differences between states so it is important to get the right one from the start to prevent any issues occurring in the future.

In addition to these you may encounter an event in your life which requires some form of legal intervention, at such point you may be worried about the potential costs which can be billed once you start seeking legal assistance. One of the best ways you can get around this is through research and doing as much of the ground work and legal form filling by yourself. Find the legal forms you need, these often come with thorough instructions so ensure you have the time available to correctly complete these. Bear in mind that any errors now may result in further legal assistance being needed in the future and as a result, more unnecessary costs!

Once you have the forms if you do require some form of legal assistance, perhaps you just have a simple question where you can’t quite justify full legal advice and bills you can find the information online. Services such as Just Answer give you the opportunity to ask basic questions to qualified legal individuals for a small fee. You also can read some of the previous submissions made on the site, if someone has had a similar question in the past you can benefit from their answers.

Church Wedding

When hubby and I  got married in civil, it was  just a formality because we did it a couple of weeks after my father died.  It was a very unfortunate event that we went through.  Everything was planned but my  Dad passed so suddenly.  After  the burial, we decided not to pursue our plans but my Mom said that it was what my father would want us to do.
Anyway, after  more than a year, my husband  said that we should get married again and this time in church  so the whole family could come and witness our union, so we did.  It was on October 12th.

Glad to know that after so many years my  wedding dress still fits!

Looking at  a different perspectives,  what   happened to my father always reminds me that no matter how dark the future may seem, there is always   positive things that comes out at the end.

Ten years after the tragedy, here's what   what my father could have enjoyed if i he's still around.

 I miss you Papa!

Can There Be a Wrong Match on Christian Mingle?

God is a pretty powerful guy.  He takes care of everything from tiny birds to the deepest friend drama, and he manages to do it for everyone all over the world, too.  Yet even though he has so much control and influence over the big picture, we often expect him to orchestrate the minutiae.   It happens more often than it really should–instead of relying on our own God-given wisdom and discernment, we expect him to come down out of the heavens and make our decisions for us.
One of the areas of life that is often the recipient of this strange approach is marriage.  It’s no wonder, since about half of all marriages end in divorce, that we want to be absolutely positive that we pick the correct person for a lifetime of companionship.  The thing is, this isn’t quite how things were designed to go.  We often are so worried about making the wrong choice that we can’t make the right one.

It shows a sad truth about the box we’ve put God in.  Men and women spend hours scouring Christian Mingle for the one person the Holy Spirit says is “it”.  “They’re wondering if God’s going to tell them one day, ‘You really messed up. I had your perfect spouse all ready and waiting for you, but you went ahead and married the wrong person. Too bad.’” (LaFitte 2013).  This makes God seem like a rather vengeful kind of deity, punishing us for not hearing correctly or for being baby Christians.  Is this really the God we serve? 

Dive into the Bible sometime and you’ll see several mentions of marriage.  Read them all and you won’t find many statements from God saying anything like, “Wait for my signal!” “And it certainly doesn’t talk about marriage and spouses in terms of finding only one uniquely-designed match, yet we’ve strangely adopted this notion when considering a potential spouse” (LaFitte 2013).  The idea of The One didn’t come from the Bible, so it could only have come from society.  God urges us to follow his lead, but when it comes to revealing whether a person is “right” or not on Christian Mingle or any other dating site we must use multiple channels. First, we can pray for God’s wisdom and discernment.

 Second, we can take things slowly to really determine if we feel compatible on critical areas such as values and temperament. And third, we can have our close friends and family give us their feedback on if they feel we’re making a good choice.  In addition, we need to be careful fantasizing about the ideal partner because no one is perfect and we may be setting our bar too high. We are all broken people living in a broken world and must view romantic relationships as one of the best conduits for personal growth and refinement. Through this perspective and the steps above, the future for romantic relationships definitely becomes brighter.

Exotic Aruba Island

The weather here is getting colder everyday and I am dreaming of a warmer  weather such as spending a sunny walk on a sandy beach in Aruba. I have never been to Aruba yet but judging from the  beautiful images  seen at the   Aruba travel, I am convinced that  it is a beautiful island to be explored!  Just like what  the video  says about the place, I would be really   deluighted to visit there one day.  

These photos shows how Aruba looks like a paradise.  It would be great spend your honeymoon there or  wedding anniversary!
There are many events  that   tourists can enjoy and lots of local cuisine to try.  Those exotic food is what I am very interested in exploring.  It is always nice to  explore  the local foods of a place3 that you have never been into. There are bus services that ensures you to explore downtown, resort areas and  restaurants for a fair price.  If you want to learn  how much  it cost to visit the place, you  can visit the website and  explore the possibilities of fun that you can have  in Aruba.  Another good thing is that foreign and international  licences are accepted so if you want to drive around, you can and parking is free all though out the island.

If you were to go to Aruba, what occasion would you pick to celebrate in this exotic Island?

Eclipse Sun Sleeves

In the country where I came from, women love to have lighter skin.  One of the most  popular  beauty products there is whitening lotion.  Over here in the  US, it is the opposite.  Women goes to tanning salon  just to have darker skin tone.  We humans are never satisfied  aren't we?  But hey, it is what it is, we are just humans, wink.    

It is comforting to know though that  there are available products that we can buy to  satisfy our needs and wants and most importantly, protect our skin from the harsh   effect of the heat of the sun.  One of the protective  gear that I recently have is the  sun sleeve  from Eclipse Sun Products .  I received  a pair of the  sun sleeves which will be great for cold season.  I can use this when I go for a jog or when we  go for a bike ride around the neighborhood.  
The sun sleeves cost $26.99 a pair  plus free shipping through Amazon.  Eclipse also   has  gloves and   sun protective gears for kids including sun poncho.  I should have  ordered my kids each a pair of this sun sleeves  during the summer when we went to the beach.  However, it is not too late, I can still purchase them  these and they can use it  next year.

I would love to bring this when we visit my county as it is very hot out there.  This would be very useful!  Thank you so much Eclipse Sun Products for providing me  a pair of sun sleeves for FREE.
