Seeking Some Style

How do some ladies look so polished so effortlessly? When I don't put in much effort, it shows. Oily skin, bad hair, bags under my eyes, grubby clothes... Urghh.

The thing is, I hate spending so much time primping and I don't want to waste so much money on it too. I only buy premium skincare because the pharmacy brands just don't work for me anymore. I need loads of help in that department - I'm touching 35 and still breaking out, when will it end? But I digress, I need some style. It's just that I love being comfortable as well. So how do I find cheap, stylish clothes that doesn't look like rags? The clothes I've looked at are made of materials so thin and sheer it's a crime to pay the prices they charge. If you have any idea where I can find good clothes that don't cost the earth, please do tell. As for now the search goes on...

Bieber Fever!

Oh God! My son and niece are playing Justin Bieber's CD for the thousanth time. Secretly I'm kinda pleased that I don't have to sing Baa Baa Black Sheep or Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star anymore. But they want to take over my radio time in the car too! I cringe every time a Justin Bieber song comes on the car radio, it means I can't change the station. And seeing that Bieber's getting a lot of airplay, it seems that every third song is a Justin Bieber song.

The saving grace is that H also loves Lady Gaga. So we'll sing together when Telephone or Bad Romance comes on. Other favourite of his is Rihanna's Rude Boy. I'm just glad he doesn't understand the lyrics yet :)

Busy, busy, busy!

Ever since school started I've been busier than ever. With handling the kids, trying to clean up my house to be rented out, yoga, healing and other errands, I almost came down with a cold and cough. So, slowed down, did some self-healing, prioritised and managed to head off the illness. Also realised that I haven't updated my blog in ages. Oh yeah, my house was also broken into so have to look into security measures and fix up the house a little since the bastards broke our window and sawed off our grille. It's just getting bad, luckily our house has alarms everywhere and is connected to a central monitoring system. Nowadays it's just not safe, so everyone especially ladies, please be more aware and take care.

Now to the good news - I finished my cases and received my certificate so I'm now a certified Wellness Medical Qi Gong Practitioner. It's been a wonderful journey, and I'm continuing this journey so that I can do this professionally. Yes, I may make money, not much, but the benefits are worth it. To see that you can bring some relief or even heal completely a person in pain, is very fulfilling. I've still so many more things to learn but I'm ready and willing.
