Feeling Beautiful Inside and Out

Good afternoon everyone! I am finally done with my household chores including grocery shopping, cooking and some cleaning. here I am now in front of my PC. I am thankful that my husband did the general cleaning in the house today. He got vacation for 4 days because we want to watch the Carnival in Berching on Sunday. We already watched a Chinese Carnival in Dietfurt yesterday which was very awesome. I wish to share some photos here later or tomorrow. I believed this post I will tackle today is quite interesting for women. This is about women and beauty. Isn't it a very nice feeling when you always feel beautiful inside and out? Anyway have you heard about Advanced Aesthetics Associates?

If you have to ask me guys if I am feeling beautiful inside and out? Of course, I do and I always try to feel the same. How lucky are those women who have self-confidence and always feel beautiful inside and out. I guess I am lucky too.....lol! You might probably know some models, artists and other prominent women like Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Kate Moss, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and a lot more. Do you think these ladies don't have Facial Rejuvenation from time to time to look always attractive, beautiful and young. I will even do the same if I have enough resources. Why not when it makes you look fabulous and gorgeous.

You might probably Schedule a Consultation if you want. If you want to have the out most cosmetic surgery with proven best results, why not try to visit this great site. All women out there, make it happen especially if you have the dream!! Just always remember, the beauty inside is still the greatest thing!

Are You Wasting Money on Multivitamins?

I guess this is a good start for the week. I just got this post in the Bulletin Board Posted by one of my friends in friendsters. Thanks a lot Merz for sharing this. This only serves as General Information. ...Continue to read if you want to know more. Who knows this might cause you to save some money and avoiding the side effects of taking vitamins...Have a great day to all!!

Subject: Multivitamins....a waste??? Important , pls. read...
Message: Are You Wasting Money on Multivitamins?

Advertisements with tantalizing promises of improved health, prevention of cancer and heart disease, and greater energy have lured millions of Americans to spend billions of dollars on the purchase of multivitamins.

An article in the February 9 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine reported that multivitamin use did not protect the 161,808 postmenopausal women enrolled in the Women's Health Initiative Study from common forms of cancer, heart attacks, or strokes. And the numbers of deaths during the 8 years of the study were the same in vitamin users as in non-users. Still, it is important to recognize that this was an observational study, not a more meaningful clinical trial. Although these findings apply only to women, other studies have failed to show benefits of multivitamins in older men.

These results are not at all surprising for several reasons. No large study has shown that multivitamins significantly benefit healthy men and women. In addition, for some years physicians prescribed folic acid and vitamins B12 and B6 in the hopes of preventing heart attacks and strokes by lowering blood levels of homocysteine. (High blood levels of homocysteine are associated with an increased risk of coronary and other vascular diseases.) A number of recent studies, however, have shown that, while these vitamins do lower homocysteine levels, they do not prevent heart attacks or strokes.

Many doctors have also prescribed the antioxidants vitamin E and beta-carotene to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Alas, studies have now proven that these supplements are not protective--and may even be harmful.

No one denies that an adequate intake of vitamins is essential; however, vitamins can and should be obtained from eating enough healthy foods rather than from swallowing vitamin supplements.
Then what about vitamins being a great source of energy? Some multivitamin ads do indeed claim that their supplements boost energy; and some professional athletes gobble handfuls of vitamin pills to increase their energy and strength. But researchers proved long ago that energy comes from calories, not vitamins. The highly touted cholesterol-lowering effects of substances added to some multivitamin supplements? Still unproven.

All this is not to say that specific vitamins supplements are never desirable. Vitamins can be valuable in certain situations:

* Folic acid supplements in women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant can help to prevent serious neural-tube defects that affect the baby's brain and spine.
* Supplements that contain more vitamin D and calcium than is present in regular multivitamin pills can help older men, and especially women, avoid osteoporosis and bone fractures.
* Supplements of vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, zinc, and copper may slow the progression of vision loss in people with early macular degeneration.
And multivitamins are beneficial for some entire groups of people:
* those on a very-low-calorie weight-loss diet
* strict vegetarians
* heavy alcohol drinkers
* individuals who are not getting an adequate diet because they are too sick or too poor--or live by themselves and are unable to prepare proper meals for themselves
I also agree with a comment made by one of the coauthors of the Archives of Internal Medicine article about postmenopausal women mentioned above. An 8-year follow-up period may not be long enough to show that multivitamins protect against cancers that take many years to develop.
All the same, the results of the studies on vitamins so far point to one conclusion: Healthy people who eat enough calories from a varied diet do not benefit from multivitamin supplements.

Have a great Valentine's day

Enjoy your Valentine's Day!! this is my greetings to each and everyone!!

Glitter Graphics


(Saint) Valentine's Day is a holiday celebrated on February 14 by many people throughout the world. In the West, it is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine's cards, presenting flowers, or offering confectionery. The day was originally a pagan festival that was renamed after two Early Christian martyrs named Valentine. The day became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.

The day is most closely associated with the mutual exchange of love notes in the form of "valentines". Modern Valentine symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten notes have largely given way to mass-produced greeting cards. The sending of Valentines was a fashion in nineteenth-century Great Britain, and, in 1847, Esther Howland developed a successful business in her Worcester, Massachusetts home with hand-made Valentine cards based on British models. The popularity of Valentine cards in 19th-century America was a harbinger of the future commercialization of holidays in the United States.

The U.S. Greeting Card Association estimates that approximately one billion valentines are sent each year worldwide, making the day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year, behind Christmas. The association estimates that, in the US, men spend in average twice as much money as women. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentine%27s_Day

Love watching TV

My husband and I always love to watch programs in the television. This is especially true if it is his favorite soccer game. Before he goes to sleep in the evening, he spent time relaxing while watching television. There are times when he want another channel and I want to watch another channel too. First come first serve. Whoever will hold the remote first will win. If I don't win, I am just lazy to go down to our living room and watch tv. I go instead to our computer room and surf the internet. This is the reason why I found this very nice site. We only have two tvs at home.

I guess we also need to change our old ones with digital tv. The small one is not working so good anymore and we are planning to change it to flat screens. I guess Save Buckets is a good place to go. Putting into consideration about price comparison, I have seen very cheap ones at Save Buckets. Imagine for a slow as 133.00 pounds, you can already have a branded LCD TV. I can't wait to have one! Are you planning to buy one? This is a great place to go! Enjoy watching your new tvs!

Must Places To Go for Winter and Enjoy Skiing


Hi everyone! I am back!! I just remember that today is Friday the 13th. For some people today is an unlucky day. For me..I can't really tell but maybe find the same also. It is unlucky day for me because I am not feeling good the whole afternoon due to migraine. It is a lucky day because we received a good news from our mailbox. 2008 Tax refund is here. Not so much money but better as nothing...probably enough for a week vacation for two. And you know what came first to my mind....dadaaannn...a winter vacation!!..It is still winter and I believed spending sometime or somewhere for a great winter vacation is still not too late. I never experience skiing in my life. It means I don't have any skiing gadgets. I know deer valley ski rentals have a lot.

I also wish that I am in Colorado or Utah right now enjoying a winter vacation. I know this will not be possible this year anymore because I was already in the US for two months last year. If I were there this time, I should be enjoying park city ski rentals with their superb ski gadgets. Sounds exciting guys..

I am not just very sure if they deliver skiing gadgets in Europe but I know for sure that Ski Butlers delivers it right to your hotel or home in places like Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, California or British Columbia. If you need great ski gadgets, beaver creek ski rentals is always a great place to go. And talking about the must places for me to go on winter include Switzerland, Austria and these States in the US that I just mentioned. I hope my husband will agree with me. have a great evening guys!! time to relax a bit..Wait a minute, got a very nice winter photo from our garden..That was from yesterday.

Exchange Link Infos

I guess this is the time to clear-up this issue. To all blogger and friends especially to those who want to exchange links with me, I really appreciate if we can exchange links with each other because we all know that it is also for our own good.

I just have some clarifications about this matter. I really have a difficulty of managing my blogrolls now. As you know I have a lot of sites and I really don't have all the time to check one by one if you really added my sites to your blogroll. Just last month, I found out that there are some bloggers who added my links. I really appreciate it. Thank you very much for your time and effort. They requested me to add them also. I reciprocated to their request and added them too. I am taking a note now who are really adding me and what sites of mine do you want to add or just added.

What happened as I visited their sites again, all my links in their sites were gone. I know that there are some bloggers who lost their blogroll due to changing of templates. This happens sometimes as what I heard about other bloggers. But then, these bloggers who remove my links did not change their templates. They still have the same templates. I guess this is not fair...It is very unfair. Come one guys, we need to help each other and be mutual. The spirit of reciprocity should be present in the blogosphere. Without it, this blogging world will not be a better place to share our ideas, thoughts, opinions and our experiences too.

So please if you want to exchange links with me, I am really honored to do it. One last thing... I really appreciate it if you add first all my sites or any of my sites that you wish to be included in your blogroll. I would really be glad if you put it under the name of EUROANGEL PLUS SHORT BLOG TITLE MUCH BETTER so that when I visit your blogs and see my sites there, I will immediately add you one once given enough time. But please be patient if I can't add you as soon as possible. as what I have said. I will add you as soon as time permits. If ever I forgot to add you, I appreciate it again if you could remind me. for those who already added me and I forgot to add you, your reminder is really appreciated. Thank you very much..

For those who want to exchange links with me...let me know when your done adding and I will surely add you...but please be patient..
PLS. UNDER THE NAME EUROANGEL...plus BLOG TITLE much better..thanks so much! below are my URL and SHORT BLOG TITLES...HAPPY BLOGGING!!

I am Suing a Friend?

Weekend is almost over now. I called home to greet my Father in his birthday yesterday. I tried to call home yesterday but my parents went grocery shopping. I don't have the chance to call back again yesterday but was happy and contented to know that they had a small but great party.

Talking about my title, I was suing a friend! That happened last year in July. I still could not forget that day as I knew that a friend whom you already consider your family was trying to destroy your dignity and talking false stories about you. I was truly upset about it. I already consulted our lawyer about it but finally changed my mind.

Why I changed my mind?..First reason, if I pursue the case, I knew that they don't have the money to pay to hire for a lawyer...not bad for us because we are paying lawyer insurance. Secondly, I still pity her and her family despite of what she did to me, pity to her being lack of sense and education. Being tactless and liar , I guess that she don't know what she had been talking about or probably that is really her true attitude..at least I already know about it. Third reason, it served as lessons for me not to fully trust anymore and I hope a lesson for her too not to spread gossips and false stories to anybody. I guess she need to look first to herself and her family before she make false stories of other people. I know she don't need Mesothelioma lawyer because it is not about Mesothelioma case anyway. She should be thankful that I did not pursue the case, or else....will tell you next time again guys..At least I learned to what had happened!! cheers!!

Remembering my dearest Sis on Her natal day

Glitter Graphics


I wish you all the best dearest Sis Regz. ..May all your wishes come true. More blessings to come and candles to blow..good health always!! luv yah..miss you all!! keep hoping and praying..God bless us all!!

Birthday Blessings
Instead of counting candles,
Or tallying the years,
Contemplate your blessings,
As your birthday nears.
Consider special people
Who love you, and who care,
And others who’ve enriched your life
Just by being there.
Think about the memories
Passing years can never mar,
Experiences great and small
That have made you who you are.
Another year is a happy gift,
So cut your cake, and say,
"Instead of counting birthdays,
I count blessings every day!"

Talk With My family

I was happy to talk again to my family last Sunday. I seldom call home because it is very expensive. We just talk over YM all the time. The problem is that there is still no internet connection to my Mother's province in Cebu where they live now. I reminded my brother to take care of the lot whihc I bought near Cebu City. I also told him to start planting trees there like coconut, mango, papaya, santol and a lot more. I ask him to do that the earliest possible time so that the lot will not look barren. I am not sure if Wildlife trees will also grow in that hilly side of Cebu. It is a beautiful place because you can see some part of Cebu City being up the hill. At least I had a great conversation again especially to my beloved Father! I miss you all!! hope to see you soon this year!!

Avoid Static Cling

Are you having a static cling? I am having this all the times. I remember when I was in Las Vegas last year wherein I always got static clings. I don't know if it is because I always walked on carpeted floors in the hotels there. I even feel bad about it sometimes especially when I draw near to metals and I feel like having an electric shock!! shocking huh!! see this tip below..hope this will help!!

To fight off static cling, keep a dryer sheet in your purse and rub it on the underside of your skirt or pantyhose.

Welcoming the Love Month!

It is the first day of the so called Love Month! February is finally here. How I wish I have a vacation to my home country to join my beloved father and sister in their natal days. Anyway, February is always an exciting month especially for the lovers and to couples. Me and my hubby still don't have a plan where to go. Probably a dinner or take a visit to a certain place. For those who are still trying to find their soulmate and dream man or woman, I wish you luck and hope to find him/her before Valentines day comes!! Good luck. I just need to take a short break to look for emergency lights which we need as a replacement for our obsolete ones. have a nice Sunday ahead!!

Remembering My US Trip

I always remember my trip to the United States last year especially our escapades in Disneyland. See this photo, this was my token in Disneyland. I love it there!! hope to be backed next time!! I am welcoming the love month now!! It is February already!!
