Healthy Skin with Natural Oils

April 18, 2017 / Comments Off on Healthy Skin with Natural Oils

Mineral oil moisturizers, including CQ10, is definitely not recommended because they tend to clog our skin pores easily. By clogging our pores, it actually makes it hard for your skin to breathe and function properly. This can cause a buildup of toxins in your body. And one of the thing you want to avoid is this because high toxins are responsible for symptoms such as itchy hair follicles, acne outbreaks and severe skin irritations. To know whether the skin care products contain any mineral oils, just do a check on the labels. If it says “liquid paraffin”, “petrolatum” or “paraffin wax”, then it means that it contains mineral oils.

The good thing with these oils based moisturizers is that it is non greasy and does not clog your pores at all. (more…)

We Both Have Gorgeous Backyards Now

March 30, 2017 / Comments Off on We Both Have Gorgeous Backyards Now

When I went to my sister’s housewarming party, I was so happy for her. She had been wanting her own house for years, and she finally found the one that she was meant to have. I live nearly three hours away, so I did not see it until I went to her house for the weekend of the party. When I saw her backyard, I knew that I was going to find a masonry contractor in Nassau County NY when I got back home to recreate parts of it in my own backyard.

Her yard is smaller than mine, but it looked so much nicer because of how it was designed. (more…)

Just Finished Working on the Web Page

March 30, 2017 / Comments Off on Just Finished Working on the Web Page

Of course the web page is really just a tool and it does you very little good unless you can find a way to get people to come visit it. In the real trick is to get the people who are going to want to buy the stuff that you are selling. It is not any use to get people who just click on the site and then decide that they are in the wrong place. So right now we are looking for an Atlanta seo agency to help us with the marketing. If you do not know, then SEO stands for search engine optimization and it is a very big business in this day and age. (more…)

The Perfect Tent for Us

March 14, 2017 / Comments Off on The Perfect Tent for Us

My wife and I had never been camping before, but it was something that we both wanted to try. We are both adventurous, so it didn’t bother us for both of us to be newbies to the idea. We decided to just go for it one weekend, and we wrote out a list of everything that we would have to buy. The list was quite short actually, because we had most of the items already. We did need to buy a tent though. We looked at quite a few, and we finally settled on getting the Mountainsmith Morrison 2 person tent.

I know that there are tents that are a lot bigger out there, but we did not need one that is huge. We only planned on spending sleeping time inside the tent. During our waking hours, we wanted to be out and about, enjoying the campsite and meeting new friends. This tent is no slouch by any means. (more…)

People Like Gifts from the Restaurant

January 1, 2017 / Comments Off on People Like Gifts from the Restaurant

Running a restaurant in Singapore is a serious endeavor. There are so many places to eat. That’s why I looked online for corporate gifts in Singapore as a way to get an edge on my competitors. My industry is rather cutthroat and it’s easy to get run over by your competition. I thought if I could get the word out about my establishment, I might get a few more regular customers. I don’t have the budget for big radio or television advertising buys, so getting some type of trinket that I could give away, a trinket with our name and maybe our address on it, might help get our name recognized.

I wasn’t interested in pens. We buy pens by the box and people accidentally take them anyway. Plus a pen isn’t something you associate with a restaurant. I wanted something more specific. (more…)

Moving Across the Globe to Open a Business is Working Well for Me

January 1, 2017 / Comments Off on Moving Across the Globe to Open a Business is Working Well for Me

When I decided to start consulting as a business choice, I was able to stay on top of whatever I needed to on my own at first. But as time went buy, I began getting a lot more business so I now rely on some corporate secretarial services for Singapore business owners that will help me keep everything organized so that I can stay on top of things. I really want my business to make it, and because I think I will be living here for many years, it is important that I make sure my business makes it.

I never thought I would be both living and working in another country. I was always very close to my family. I adored my parents. I always lived in the same small town near them. My siblings lived no more than just a couple of towns away. We always made sure that we got together whenever possible for family dinners and general events. We would even show up to one another’s homes on the weekends to watch movies together. (more…)

I Had Acne Scars on My Face

January 1, 2017 / Comments Off on I Had Acne Scars on My Face

I did a search not long ago for an acne scar treatment in Singapore. I was not sure if there would be anything available, but my reasoning was good anyway. I figured if they can put a man on the moon, and if they can give a one legged man the ability to walk again, then there should be something for people like me who had hideous acne scars on our faces. I know that some people may think that is comparing apples and oranges as far as priorities are concerned, but I can guarantee you that not a single person with acne scars feel that way.

While everyone can see the scars on the outside, very few know about the internal scars. We live in society where people are just flat out cruel, and anyone who looks even a little different is at the mercy of this society. I had acne really bad when I was younger, and it took a toll on my face. (more…)

How Did the Cave Men Do It?

September 15, 2016 / Comments Off on How Did the Cave Men Do It?

This summer has been excruciatingly hot. I’ve been sweating so much I’m sure I have lost a lot of weight, my clothes seem to be just hanging loose on me. I’m certain that my house has turned into a Japanese Sauna. It’s time I look for HVAC installation in Manhattan, NY. I can’t take this heat anymore, as I’m sure I’m going to go crazy if I have to endure it much longer.

I want central air in my home, fans don’t do anything but move the hot air around which honestly doesn’t do anything to keep me cool. I stay at home all day long with my toddlers, and they complain constantly about being hot and sticky. The house smells like a sweat house, which is honestly really disgusting. (more…)

Businesses Need to Get Online or Face the Real Possibility of Going out of Business

August 10, 2016 / Comments Off on Businesses Need to Get Online or Face the Real Possibility of Going out of Business

I remember years ago when we decided to put our business online. We wanted to take advantage of whatever the new medium of the Internet would offer as far as generating revenue. Back then, I had an employee who had built computers from kits in the early days of personal computing, and she was savvy with the new HTML that the World Wide Web was being built on. Selling online back then still required customers call or send a check. It was like fancy mail order. Now we use a marketing company in Thailand to manage our web presence and domains.

Years ago the online sales did not even account for one percent of the total revenue. Now the online sales are more than 50 percent of our revenue. I do not know about other industries that are similar to ours, but I do know we are planning for a future that has less brick and mortar stores and more online sales. It is just based on customer preference. They find it easier to use a credit card and point and click to buy. (more…)

Ants Had Infested and Ruined Our Maple Tree

July 13, 2016 / Comments Off on Ants Had Infested and Ruined Our Maple Tree

I came home form work the other day and saw thousands and thousands of ants at the base of a tree that is next to the sidewalk leading up to our house. It is an old Maple that has given us much joy with its shade and seasonal colors. I called a tree service in Brooklyn NY to come out and see why there were so many ants.

It turns out that they were an ant species that was ruining the tree. We were going to have it treated by an exterminator, but the drilling of core samples revealed that it was damaged beyond saving from the inside. I asked how the tree could look so healthy and be in such bad shape. The company that provides the tree service in Brooklyn NY told me that the nutrients that feed the leaves and growth travels just under the bark. The inner part of the tree is supposed to be solid wood. The tree had big hollow spaces compromising its structural integrity.

We had to have the tree cut down and the stump removed. (more…)

Replacement for T8 Tube Lightbulbs

June 6, 2016 / Comments Off on Replacement for T8 Tube Lightbulbs

I am going through he process of replacing a lot of the light bulbs in the house, in order to upgrade to LED lights, which use less power and also last for a long time. One of the last things on my list of light bulbs to look for are LED t8 tube bulbs and I hope that I can find them at a reasonable price. I do not think that they have made light bulbs of this type in a LED variety for very long, and so that is the main reason why I am worried that they might be kind of expensive.

However, overall, the price of LED bulbs has gone down a lot over the past couple of years. (more…)
