Accessorizing motorcycle using handle grisp

Every morning before my hubby went to his job, he normally checked his motorcycle. He was using his motorcycle for a long time. Actually for 6 years already. This motorcycle serves as his service everyday going to his work. So we are pleased because it’s substantial and still in good condition. And since it was purchased he didn’t encounter any problem. I’m thankful because we don’t spend much on his motorcycle but once in a while he likes to replace the handle and accessories it using handle grips. Anyway, I’m glad that this motorcycle doesn’t give any dilemma in our part and it’s truly a big help because it’s not only my hubby’s service but me as well.

PEDICURE AND MANICURE

Pedicure and manicure is very easy to apply the nails. Actually I am doing this to myself.  I already apply pedicure and manicure. I have a simple procedure that can be easily performed at home to make your feet and hands always healthy and attractive. .

 My simple procedure:

  1. Remove the old nail polish by using cotton with nail polish remover or acetone.
  2. If you want to cut or shape your nails use your nail cutter and emery board.
  3. Wrap the cotton wool around the stick and push the cuticle back gently. If it tends to adhere, apply some hand cream and then push it back.
  4. Then apply hand cream if you like to massage.
  5. This is the last step in home manicure and pedicures process. Apply nail polish; choose the color you like to apply on your nails, using smooth strokes, from the base to the tip of the nails.

Anyway, that time I feel lazy and not mood to clean my nails because of my asthma attack. The work of my neighbor is to clean the nails for manicure and pedicures, she always here if you need her. The total amount of her manicure and pedicures is P 80.00. To be honest this is the 3rd times to put up other people to beautifying my nails first is during our wedding day, the second is in the office during our Christmas Party, and the photo below is the 3rd time.

How to achieve beautiful and shiny hair?

I believe one of the greatest assets that a person can possess is the hair. The hair could help greatly in boosting your physical appearance. But having a nice hair could not attain easily of course we need to use different products or maybe a good hair brush is important. I think the quality of hair brush helps the hair to become more beautiful and shiny.

When I was young I used to hear this phrase “if you brush your hair 100 times a day, your hair will get longer and beautiful.” Is it true? Well, I think it depends on the hair brush you used. My sister has a long hair and she loves to brush her hair every time. But despite of brushing it regularly still she is not satisfied with the result. I think the problem is the hair brush she is currently using. Looks like I have an idea what to give to her this Christmas, why not give her hair brushes from mason pearson isn’t it a good choice?

THE PLANTATION BAY

The photo below is the plantation bay resort in Cebu, Philippines. I was browsing my fb photo album then I find this photo. Plantation bay is the one beautiful attraction in Cebu. Last 2011 our family spends summer vacation in Cebu and the plantation bay resort is one of the most attractive places. Whether you’re looking for romance, relaxation, or family fun, plantation bay is the best. The area is very large based on my research plantation bay is 11.4 hectares. I really love the manmade swimming pool, the design and the good environment. Here are some photos taken.

SANTA CLAUS

Santa Claus is a symbol of Christmas. Santa Claus is an imaginary character that is in many Christmas stories from the famous Christmas poem like The Night before Christmas and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Based on wikipedia Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas and simply “Santa”, is a figure with legendary, mythical, historical and folkloric origins who, in many western cultures, is said to bring gifts to the homes of the good children during the late evening and overnight hours of Christmas Eve, December 24.

Anyway, Christmas is my favorite holiday season, because Christmas is usually a time that family and friends get together, eat great food, talk about old times and having fun.  Because the Christmas is coming my SIL bought many style of Santa Clause to sell her friends, neighbors etc. She gave me some pieces of Santa Clause to sell in my neighbors and friends. Each Santa Clause cost P390.00–P750.00. It’s made a paper machine and fiber glass. By the way, before I sell the cute Santa Clause I will take a photo in my display. Here are some photos taken:

Watching Live band with friends

Last month my friend invited me to attend a live band. She encouraged me to watch because one of the members of the band is her boyfriend. I am not a partygoers I just want to experience watching live band. So, I accompanied her. I was happy because I went with my friend and we both enjoyed the show. All the instruments used were pleasant to hear and I think one of the instruments they used is first class bass clarinet reeds. Well, because of our happy experienced watching live band for sure it will happen again.
