Mommy and Me Monday

Mommy and Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?
Hosted by Krystyn at Really, Are You Serious?

Those photos were taken few weeks ago when we went to the City. We headed to  our fave bookstore and going there with my tot is quite enjoyable. Well, maybe because she has an apparent interest on books just like me. And by that, we have a common interest and a reason to  get more bonding moments for the love of books. We stayed there for as long as she can, then we roamed around The Fort and took some pictures of us, as I always do.

How to Choose the Right Color According to Your Skin Tone

Haven't you notice even once that no matter how fabulous the dress someone is wearing, still it doesn't fit right? Something is really wrong that you begin to wonder what it is and then after a keen observation you suddenly realized the color of the dress that someone is wearing is quite unsuitable to her/his skin tone.

A lot of us sometimes is a victim of this, we set aside the importance of giving a consideration whether the color of our outfits matches our skin color. Perhaps, we failed to notice it because we are more focused  on feeling comfortable with the clothes we wear and then we think that's more important.

But hey, would you feel comfortable still if you happen to know you have a poor color combination?

That's why it is highly recommended to be aware on what color of outfits best matches your skin tone.

So there, hope you got an idea.

Know the Perfect Jeans for You

How do you know if you are wearing the right jeans for you?

Here are some tips in finding the perfect jeans for your body type.

  • Straight with no curves- try to wear boot cut jeans to create an illusion of curves, it offers slim and elongating effect for balancing curves. This is also will look good on plus size figure as it can provide a longer and leaner look.
  • A person with short legs- straight leg jeans is for you. The same width at leg opening as well as the knees and thighs will have an effect of you looking taller and leaner. Match it up with high heeled shoes.
  • If you have a good figure- wear a skinny jeans to have a sexy slim fitting look. However, it doesn't look good for those who has a fuller figure.
  • If your legs are too long- then try to wear narrow leg jeans with mid rise to create a balance between top and bottom. Go for flare jeans if you want to draw away attention from hips and thighs.
  • For short waist- look for trouser style jeans which have a low waist and small pockets with flat front that will give a longer look to your body.
  • For long waist- go for regular high-rise jeans.
  • With no butt- try to wear jeans with button pockets or flap.
  • With wide butt- look for boot-cut or straight leg jeans with the pocket closely set.

21 Guns by Green Day

Do you know what's worth fighting for?
When it's not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away
And you feel yourself suffocating?

Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?
Did someone break your heart inside?
You're in ruins

One 21 guns
Lay down your arms give up the fight
One 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky you and i

When you're at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul

Your faith walks on broken glass
And the hangover doesn't pass
Nothing's ever built to last
You're in ruins

One 21 guns
Lay down your arms give up the fight
One 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky you and i

Did you try to live on your own
When you burned down the house and home?
Did you stand too close to the fire
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone?

When it's time to live and let die
And you can't get another try
Something inside this heart has died
You're in ruins

One 21 guns
Lay down your arms give up the fight
One 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky

One 21 guns
Lay down your arms give up the fight
One 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky you and i

Tips for a Healthier Hair

Hair is a woman's crowning glory and thus it needs proper care. Of all the products that promises healthy, bouncy and shiny hair, are you aware that there are practical remedies to achieve that?

Here's what I found:

  1. Brush your hair before washing it. This way you'll remove any dirt from your hair.
  2. Massage your scalp gently massage will boost your circulation.
  3. Shampoo. Nobody can tell you how often you have to shampoo your hair. When you feel your hair is dirty, wash it gentle, with a shampoo that works on your hair. Read the page about how to choose the right shampoo for more.
  4. Always Moisturize your hair
  5. Rinse Best way to rinse your hair is by using vinegar, if possible apple vinegar. Rinsing helps your hair shine.
  6. Water Try to use mildly cold water. Finish, if possible, with cold water, this will close the cuticles.
  7. Drying your hair Let your hair dry naturally. Squeeze the water, and then use a towel to blot your hair. This way you'll have a moisturized, healthy hair.
  8. Hairbrush Do not use a hairbrush until your hair is dry; the wet hair can be easily damaged. Avoid plastic hairbrushes; hair will probably end up in knots
  9. Season, age, sex, food & drink, tobacco, all have a big influence on hair growth. Have a healthy life and you'll have a healthy hair, too
  10. Hair styling Try to avoid curling irons and hair-dryers to prevent hair damage. Also, avoid heat and prolonged exposure to sunlight

Hope that helps with your hair problems.
