    Avoid Going Broke During a Trip

    Posted on May 23, 2015 @ 2:23 am

    Traveling is an amazing experience. Seeing some of the great places this world has to offer, especially with people you love, is one of the things that makes life truly worth living. In order to see the world, it is not necessary to stay in five-star hotels and fly first class. Shrewd people are constantly using clever methods to travel, see the sights and stay in hotels in Washington DC, while spending only a fraction of what most people do. It should be noted that traveling for small amounts of money usually means that you will need to get along without any frills. If you are fine with that, here is how to avoid going broke during a trip.

    Do not use air conditioning

    Air conditioning is a modern convenience that many people can’t live without. It feels great to crank up the air conditioning to help you sleep better on a humid night. While it does make your trip more bearable, air conditioned rooms will always cost more than rooms without it. Therefore, it you are staying in a place that gives you the choice of having a room with no air conditioning, you should take it. You will end up saving a nice chunk of change, especially if you will be staying there for more than just a couple of days.

    Bargain with local vendors

    While you will most likely not be able to bargain for the price of your hotel room, there are many other things you will be able to negotiate during your trip, depending on where you are visiting. If you are in the Middle East or India, local merchants will expect you to negotiate with them on everything from food, jewelry and other trinkets. In fact, if you refuse to bargain with them by asking for a specific price, they may be offended by this. Although this will take a while for people from the West to get used to, it gets easier after a few days living in that environment.

    Do not buy alcohol

    The reason you should avoid buying alcohol in foreign countries is not because it will impair your judgement. It is because alcohol is extremely expensive when purchased in many foreign countries. While it is truer than many items are cheaper in foreign countries than they are in America, alcoholic beverages are not one of them. Therefore, keep your partying to a minimum.

    Shopping for Boy’s Clothes

    Posted on May 22, 2015 @ 10:40 pm

    While the word shopping always gets you excited, it may be a bit challenging when it comes to buying clothes for your kids, boys especially. I am sure you will agree that it’s easier to shop for girls because there is a wide variety of styles and designs for girls’ clothes. For boys, the only choices you have are tees, polos, pants, jumpers and shorts.

    boys 1

    boys 3

    boys 2

    Whether you agree with me or not, we parents are often tempted to buy clothes at the end of the season to wear the following year because they are a lot cheaper. I guess that’s alright, but what we fail to consider is boys grow really fast, so what may seem big for for them now may not fit them next summer. Think short term when shopping for boys’ clothes.

    Another challenge is when you shop and you have them in tow. Boys are not as patient as girls, shopping makes them tired and they get hungry fast. When my son was younger, he didn’t care about his clothes and he never liked shopping. Well, not for clothes anyway. As soon as he got his toy and has eaten, he would ask the never ending question “Are we done, yet?” So, I learned my lesson and only bought his toy after we’re done shopping for clothes.

    Nowadays, we have more shopping options. Parents can stay at home, shop online and maintain their sanity from having to deal with impatient kids and tantrums. I used to have second thoughts about this, but when I tried shopping at Zalora for junior boys clothing one time, I realized that it was very convenient. Shopping online is great, especially for busy parents who do not want to go through the hassles of traffic, going around a full car park looking for a parking slot, and squeezing through a jam packed mall. An Added perk? You get to compare prices and score the best deals.

    Just remember that before you go shopping, whether online or in a physical store, make an inventory of your kids’ clothes first. This will give you an idea on what to buy and save you from purchasing items that they still have.

    Product Review: Vita Sciences Maxasorb Vitamin B12 Cream

    Posted on May 4, 2015 @ 6:21 pm

    I’m sure you already know that getting the proper amount of B vitamins is an essential part of your overall health. And while it’s true that you can get it from foods such as salmon, Swiss cheese, Feta cheese, Goose Liver Pate, Cured Ham, Emu Steak, clams, eggs and many more, you don’t always get the recommended amount of Vitamin B12 daily. Today’s review is about the Maxasorb Vitamin B12 Cream by Vita Sciences.

    maxasorb b12 1

    maxasorb b12 2

    Product Description

    * Infused with antioxidants and moisturizers, greaseless Maxasorb dissolves effortlessly into your skin for maximum vitamin absorption
    * Helps soothe dry, itchy, or irritated skin patches from eczema, psoriasis, or other skin rash
    * Maxasorb B12 cream is easy to use
    * For anti-aging, supports renewal of healthy skin cells, reduces appearance of wrinkles, moisturizes
    * Scientifically formulated for maximum absorption; Each bottle contains a one-month supply of thirty measured applications of vitamin B12 methylcobalamin

    maxasorb b12 3

    My Thoughts

    The cream comes in a nice blue bottle with a pump. The cream has a minty scent, it has a nice consistency and is not sticky. It is easy to apply on the skin and is absorbed fast. I find it very convenient because there is no big pill to swallow. You simply slather it on your skin and you get your daily dose of vitamin B12.

    I’ve been using it for more than a week now and so far, I love the results. I noticed that I don’t get tired easily. In fact, I’ve extended my daily walk to 1 hour instead of just 30 minutes.

    The cream does not irritate my skin and it feels soft and smooth. They say the cream can improve the signs of aging, but it might be too early to tell. I did, however, noticed that the pores around my T-zone have reduced. My skin feels supple and plump all day long.

    Overall, I love this cream. If you’re feeling sluggish and you need a pick me up, this product is worth giving a try.

    Where to buy?

    You can purchase the Maxasorb Vitamin B12 Cream through the Vita Sciences website and on Amazon. It is fairly priced at $19.95.

    Disclosure: I received a sample of this product free of charge for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed here are 100% my own and was in no way influenced by anyone or the brand.

    Product Review: Vita Sciences Maxasorb Vitamin D3 Cream

    Posted on @ 4:27 pm

    A dose of Vitamin D not only strengthens your heart and bones; it makes your skin glow and look young as well. While it’s true that spending a few minutes every morning to get your dose of the D Vitamin, you don’t always get enough of what your body needs daily. Today, I will be reviewing a lotion that’s infused with Vitamin D, the Maxasorb Vitamin D3 Cream by Vita Sciences.

    maxasorb d3

    maxasorb d3 2

    maxasorb d3 4

    Product Description

    Vitamin D is crucial to our body’s process of converting calcium into strong bones. We obtain Vitamin D through our diet and also from sunlight. Obtaining enough Vitamin D is critical as we age due to reduced bone strength and our heart health. Maxasorb D3 provides an easy and effective way to supplement our daily Vitamin D.

    Each measured dose of lotion from our airless dispenser delivers 1,000 IU of Vitamin D3 with a full press of the pump. Rubbing the easily absorbed, odorless lotion on your arms or legs makes daily use of Maxasorb D3 an ideal way to get all the Vitamin D you need. Natural ingredients assure this lotion is gentle to your skin.

    My Thoughts

    First off, the lotion comes in a really nice bottle with a pump. It has no scent and it is not sticky. It glides easily on the skin and the creamy lotion is absorbed quickly. After applying, skin feels soft and silky smooth.

    maxasorb d3 3

    I used to take the pill version of Vitamin D, but I prefer this because it is more convenient to apply it on the skin instead of swallowing a big pill.

    Overall, I like this product. Supplements don’t usually work well with prescribed medicines, this one would because you don’t take it orally. I would recommend this product to friends and family.

    Where to buy?

    You can purchase the Maxasorb Vitamin D3 Cream through the Vita Sciences website and on Amazon. It is fairly priced at $19.95.

    Disclosure: I received a sample of this product free of charge for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed here are 100% my own and was in no way influenced by anyone or the brand.
