Take Your Beauty Regimen To A New Level #GETADVANCED

Are you ready?  Ready to get advanced?  What I mean is to take your beauty regimen a new level of boost in skin care.  Let us admit that at age 35, some of us women develop skin wrinkles already.  Some of them are showing a lot.  Like I have a deep wrinkle in between my eyebrows and I am not liking it at all. Hopefully the No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advance Serum from Boots Beauty USA will reduce the appearance of the deep wrinkle on my forehead.

I tried this product few weeks ago and I still on going.  It was one of the products in my #FrostyVoxBox I received from Influenster during the Holidays.  I do not have any complain about it so far.  The cream feels smooth on my skin and somehow I feel some tightening on my face after I put it on. I tried a few anti-aging cream products before but the No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advance Serum seems like it's gonna stay in my routine.  We'll see.

What I like about the product:

Smooth on my skin
My skin feels light and fresh

Boots Beauty USA anti-aging product
Although the scent is mild, I still prefer my cream to have a lovely smell in it.  All in all, the No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum is great.  Interested on trying this lovely product?

Special Occasion

My birthday falls on a Thursday of this month.  I am going to be a year older again.  Ugh. Time flies like an arrow.

I don't have any thing fancy planned for my birthday.  I just want to go out and eat at a fine restaurant.  Lunch or dinner maybe.  But my husband said we will go to our folks' and celebrate my birthday there.  He also wants to celebrate his promotion at work with his parents.  Congratulations, daddy!

So we'll be out of town this coming weekend that's for sure.

Satisfied With The Professional Plumbing Service

When he got home one evening, my husband noticed water on the kitchen floor by the sink.  He called and asked me about it.  I told him it wasn't there when we left. My daughter and I was in town that day.  He said the water kept on going.  He looked under the sink but there was no water there even in the sink cabinets.  As he was checking further, my husband noticed the water was coming from under the sink cabinet.  It was raining hard that day but it couldn't be the rainwater had overflown from the house's foundation.  My husband had a bad feeling that a pipe has popped and leaking.  He removed the dishwasher and check.  There's water on the cement.  He did something to prove his suspicion about the hot water.  He made a hole on the sheet rock by the kitchen sink where the water supply to the sink is connected.  There he ran the water for a few minutes.  Then he saw that one of the pipes (for the hot water) was leaking.  When my daughter and I got home, the dishwasher was out and towels on the floor.

That happened during the Holidays.  Very bad timing.  My husband immediately looked for a professional plumbing service.  He found one and that Monday of Christmas week the plumber came over and evaluated the leak problem.  The repair didn't start until the following Monday.  We are satisfied with the plumbing service.  They finished the job in three days.

We are happy and thankful that a major repair in our house is finished. The leak is fixed.  But it didn't stop there.  We have to have the water heater replaced because the water is not getting hot like it used to be.  So after the New Year Day my husband purchased a new water heater and had it installed immediately.  We have hot water again. My husband and I are so relieved.

Weekend Snapshots: Zumba Party

Everyone was lively and sweating at the Zumba Party this evening.
My cousin invited me to a Zumba Party this evening at the Wylie Recreation Center.  The party started at 8:30 P.M until 10:00 P.M.  The registration was $5 per participant.  I haven't been to dance fitness parties before and it was the very first time I joined the Zumba Party this evening.  It was super fun!  The crowd was very lively.  Almost all wore neon shirts.  The lights brought everybody's glow.  There was a face painting session before the party.  There were free glow-in-the-dark bracelets and snacks (protein bars).  The recreation center also let us use towels.

Man, I tell you I haven't sweat like crazy until tonight.  It was super duper enjoyable.  Sure is nice to do work outs with lots of company because the motivation level is very high.  I bet my body will be sore tomorrow. :)  

If there's gonna be a Zumba Party coming soon, my cousin and I will definitely join again.

#CelestialTea Candy Cane Lane Green Tea Holiday Tea

I love tea.  I put honey as sweetener.
Happy New Year!  Yes it is the New Year.  We had a wonderful Christmas celebration with the folks and the rest of the family.  We attended the worship service on Christmas Eve, had a delicious meal, and enjoyed the moment of company and gift-giving.

Christmas time is the most cheerful time of the year.  It is the occasion we look forward to so we can spend more time with our families and friends.  Sharing the joy of the season together comes with great and delicious meals.  At mom and dad's, tea is the usual drink served at the table.  Cold, warm, or hot it doesn't matter.  We love tea.  It's supposed to be good for you.

I was so glad that Influenster has given me the opportunity to try this Candy Cane Lane Green Tea Holiday Tea from Celestial Seasonings which is included in the Frosty Vox Box that came in the mail.  A cup of hot tea is perfect in this cold weather.  What I like about this tea is that, it has mint flavors.  I like mints.  They're cool and soothing.  That is what Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Green Tea is - soothing.  It is decaffeinated so I don't have to worry about being up all night when I drink this tea late in the day.

I drink tea with or without sweetener.  If I do, I mix honey.  And the Candy Cane Lane Green Tea Holiday Tea tasted much better with honey.  And it's healthier.  We really enjoyed it.  You, too, should try the Celestial Seasonings Green Tea.  For more information about their tea flavors selection, check and follow them on Twitter at
