My new slipper

 photo 867bd280-c946-4c51-869c-da3b35a8a909_zps2ea12627.jpgBuying slipper was not in my mind few days ago. But after seeing this cute blue slipper on display I fell in love and opted to buy it right there and then. I am not fond of color blue that much however the blue slipper I saw is really lovely. You can see in the images I have shared above why this slipper is so lovely. Though this slipper is not original, the quality is good as well. I think this is intended to thrifty shoppers like me. I have bought the same a year ago and I like it. It also lasted a year. It is durable, comfortable to wear and not heavy for my feet.

It is really great to shop at the thrifty store for I can save some because items are not that expensive. It is friendly to my budget and my wallet, so to speak. I know that a certain agency did not encourage shoppers to buy fake ones but to someone like me who is always on a tight budget, buying fake ones is not a bad decision at all. Besides, I am not buying fake items all the time. Only when I need it.

Reviving the younger hair

Our crowning glory age, as we age. We will notice the changing in color, texture and density. Whether we admit it or not, it does bother us. Our hair plays a big role in our life. It won’t be called the crowning glory for nothing, right? I am in my mid-thirties but my hair shows some changes. It is more brittle, rough, thinning, and white and grey hair are appearing. I wanted to have long straight hair but as it grows longer, it becomes brittle, falling and looks really dry. I am desperately looking for a ways to make my hair healthy and youthful look. And below is what I have found in the magazine.

We have to start shampooing at the roots. The main purpose of applying shampoo is to clean the scalp.   Shampoo should be applied directly to the scalp instead of our hair and massage it gently from root to tip. It helps stimulating hair growth from doing so. Brushing the hair brings out the natural oil from our hair, but we do not need to do it overly. As they say, too much is not good. I remember my grandmother and mother told me to brush my hair always to make my hair shine and grow longer. Basing from what I read, I can say that my grandmother and mother is partly right about brushing the hair. Lastly, use sun protection. Once the hair starts turning grey, it is best to use a leave-on conditioner that has sunscreen

So, the next time you went to grocery store, include buying the things that you will be needing to revive your hair.

Tips for finding right backpacks

My nieces are ages 9 and 11 years old. They are in grade 4 and 6 respectively and suffering from back pain. They are carrying heavy load of backpacks every day. The eight books, notebooks and other school things inside their backpacks gives the back pain to nieces. In the morning it is their father who carried their bags to school, and they will be carrying it the whole day at school and going home. Even if we bought lighter backpacks for them, still it doesn’t help lighter their loaded bags. If only there are lockers for every student at public schools, they do not have to carry the books every day.

The nieces would be suffering from this back pain for five more months. I pity the girls carrying heavy bags every day. Five months is not a joke. The brother is thought of buying his girls new backpacks. Looking for backpacks that is best for the girls is not easy. But with the help of tips I read in the computer, looking for backpacks is easy. Read the tips below:

  • Look for a bag with waist or chest straps, which would help distribute loads.
  • Make sure it has wide padded straps.
  • Tighten shoulder straps so the bag’s weight sits on the lower back.
  • Look out for lightweight backpacks.

I do hope with these tips, the girls won’t be suffering much of back pains.

His new rubber shoes

The nephew has been complaining about his rubber shoes since the classes started. He is complaining that it is an old one and he needs a new one. However, his parents did not buy him a new one because the old one still looks okay. They just told him that when it is busted they will buy him new rubber shoes. We are glad that the nephew understands after the explanation. He has been using his old rubber shoes as his school shoes for five months already. After five months the shoes retired. Instead of feeling sad, I can see the happy face of my nephew.lol
