  • Freshly Popped Popcorn Anytime

    Posted on April 30, 2013 @ 9:14 pm

    Do you love popcorn? PopcornPopper.com offers popping corn machines and supplies that will definitely make your dvd movie nights a sure hit. If your kids are big popcorn eaters like mine they will also enjoy the gourmet popcorn they have on the website. PopcornPopper offers the most delicious gourmet popcorn I have ever tasted and other popcorn machine supplies. Their popping corn comes directly from Wabash Valley Farms, the original Whirley Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper for more than 30 years now.  If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s time you take your freshly popped corn to a new level.

    My kids love their popping corn because they are so fluffy and only a few kernels were left unpopped on each batch. I’ve had it with microwaveable ones! Aside from having a lot pf preservatives, I get a lot of unpopped kernels. Plus, they are more expensive. The popcorn kits they offer at the site are very convenient. It comes with unpopped popcorn, oil, and seasonings. All you need to do is simply cut the container, pour the kernels, and you’re ready to pop. The machine I got from them heats up pretty quickly and I can load up a gallon at one time. It is easy to clean and you can just slide out the tray and load it up in your washer.

    Fresh popcorn is now available anytime in my home and weekend means movie nights and healthy snacking!

    Banner Printing

    Posted on @ 12:03 am

    My cousin’s Banner Printing business earned more than triple in the first quarter and still doing great until now. That’s because it’s the local elections period and a lot of candidates are having their banners made. During non-election years, she thrives on birthdays, events and company banners. It’s a lucrative business she says and she’s planning on expanding soon. My advise to her is that it’s alright to open up other branches as long as she maintains the quality of her services. Some businesses with lots of branches don’t last very long because they didn’t maintain the quality of their products.

    Symptom Soother: Sea Salt Spray

    Posted on April 27, 2013 @ 3:58 pm

    The cold virus strikes once again and as expected, everyone in the house is sniffling, sneezing and rubbing their eyes. It’s alright with the adults because we cane easily take meds to feel better, but my twin granddaughters are too young to test for specific allergies. It’s a good thing that their pedia, who also happens to be my cousin, is very conservative. She doesn’t like giving medicine right away. As much as possible, she likes to get rid of the symptoms the natural way.

    She prescribed two spray of purified Dead Sea Salts right before bedtime. Sure enough, the girls can breathe better after a few minutes. According to her, the healing salts are rich in minerals such as magnesium and potassium that have been shown to decrease the inflammation that causes allergy symptoms. If you can’t find the spray, saline nasal drops also work.

    Silk Scarves, the Essential Fashion Accessory

    Posted on @ 2:06 pm

    With a whole lot of creative people emerging in the fashion industry, new fashion styles were created and well loved. When these new styles came around in the industry, some stayed in people’s minds for a couple of months, some stayed for years, while some would stay with them probably forever. It all depends on how a fashion style has affected the people’s lives and how people have incorporated it entirely in their wardrobe.

    There are several aspects in the fashion industry that usually change over time. One aspect is the area of shoes. Trends vary when it comes to the shoes department depending on the season and time. Colors and styles were usually taken into consideration when it comes to this. Another aspect that is also affected is of course the wardrobe itself – tops, bottoms and dresses. This is probably the aspect that is mostly affected by change. The styles vary with every change of season too. Lastly, the aspect that has just recently become popular is the fashion accessories. With every change of season, it also changes making sure that these completely coordinate with your entire ensemble.

    With all the new accessories that made it to the most trendy ones in the industry, one thing that stuck around are scarves, particularly the silk ones. A silk scarf is not only used to tie around the neck during winter but it is now an essential fashion accessory. Here are other ways on how you can wear it:

    1. Head Piece or Hair Accessory. If you are tired of using your scarf as scarf, you can opt to use it as a hair accessory or headband. A nice printed and colored silk scarf would make you look younger and happier too.
    2. Cardigan or Light Jacket. Of course just as it warms your neck on winter, a piece of thick scarf would also serve as a cardigan or light jacket if you try to drape it over your shoulder and tie the ends at the back – an instant cardigan for cold days and nights.
    3. Bag Accessory. No longer know what to do with old scarves and are just taking up space in your closet? Why not use it as a bag accessory. Wrap it around the handle of the bag and tie bow on it. Your plain looking purse will look elegant. You can even place a scarf that works well with your dress to make it look coordinated.

    With more creativity, you can think of more ways to maximize your silk scarf. With all of these uses and advantages that scarf brings to your wardrobe; there is no other reason why you should not include it in your next shopping list!

    Chef or Med Technologist?

    Posted on @ 12:00 am

    About a month ago, my son graduated from high school. He is still undecided whether to pursue a degree in Medical Technology or to become a chef. Both are okay with us and I’m sure, with his perseverance and dedication in whatever he does, he will excel.

    Although he is still undecided, I want him to prepare for both so come June (the start of classes here), we know where he will enroll. He already took the entrance exams at different schools in case he decides to pursue Med Tech. He passed the tests and interviews already.

    After checking several Culinary Schools at culinaryschools.com, I have found a good one that’s near our area. My son only learned how to make simple meals simply by watching me prepare them. He also loves to watch cooking shows so I guess that’s how his interest in cooking developed. Becoming a chef is expensive and I’m glad I found a school that my husband and I can afford. I too, wanted to become one but when I made inquiries a few years back, I almost fainted when I found out how much the tuition was.

    If you feel you can stand the heat and you have the passion to create extraordinary meals, you may want to pay culinaryschools.com a visit. In this website you can find lots of information about the top culinary schools. Plus, you’ll find news and articles about the trends in dining, top chefs, unusual culinary careers and more.

    My son was impressed when he saw the website but I told him not to make decisions yet. He still has more than a month to think so he can weigh his options well. I just told him that whatever he chooses, we’ll be just right behind him. At least I know that we are ready for both courses and that’s okay for now.

    Heal a dry, cracked nose

    Posted on April 25, 2013 @ 2:08 pm

    puppy

    I’m sure your furry pal is enjoying lounging outside in the sun like you and your kids do — but now the UV rays have dried out the skin on his nose.  To help him feel better simply wash the dried area with soap and water, then open a vitamin E capsule and rub the oil liberally over his nose. Repeat daily for 1 week or until you see improvement. Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant that will nourish and heal the cracked skin and don’t worry, it won’t harm your pet if he tries to lick it off.
