Driving Lessons...

This summer, I guess I should be putting myself on the driver's seat in preparation for my DL. It's been long overdue, but I felt this is the only chance and time that I am convenient doing it. Besides, if not the endless trips that I have almost every month, I should have been driving by myself already. Well, if many would think it is just easy to get DL, not in Maryland! They require new drivers to complete 60 hours of actual driving with supervision before you can take the road test to DMV.

Gosh, I hate parallel parking!

Did You Know?

It's always a good thing to at least update ourselves with health facts, don't you think? To think that many people are going careless about their health, I guess it's not a waste of time to at least read and know the basic stats of health.

Did You Know that:
  • more than 95 million American experiences some kind of digestive problem?
  • more than 10 million are hospitalized each year to treat digestive problems?
  • digestive diseases rank 2nd among all causes of disability due to illness in the US?
  • annual sales of prescription and over-the-counter drugs for GI problems is about $2.5 billion?
Well, isn't it time to slow down eating unhealthy foods? Watch out for your tummy!

Tips to Avoid Fat When Dining Out

It's a challenge when you are eating in a restaurant compared to when you are at home. Here are some tips that may help:
  1. Don't be afraid to ask how dishes are prepared and if they can be made differently. Many restaurants take requests to serve foods the way you like such as asking to have fish grilled without butter or oil.
  2. Ask for dressing, sauces and gravy on the side so you can use less. Also, you might wanna ask your server if low-fat-salad dressings are available.
  3. Avoid deep fried foods. Go for foods that are broiled, grilled, roasted, steamed, paoched or stir fried instead.
  4. If you order poultry or meat, trim off all the visible fat.
  5. Eat the same amount of food you would if you were at home. If the restaurant meal includes larger portions, set some of it aside and take it home.
  6. Choose pasta with tomato based, rather than cream based, sauces.
  7. Order dishes with vegetables as key ingredients.
Have a veggie-delish eating!

Migraine, Migraine Go Away!

Migraine can really ruin your day! If you think you have it (like I do), always seek your doctor's help.
If there is a banging, clanging gong between your ears, it could be a migraine. Often, this triggers such certain foods that are to be blamed. These include:
  • alcohol
  • chocolate
  • dairy products
  • monosodium glutamate (MSG), a food additive
  • nuts
  • pickles
  • processed meats
Skipping meals or bright or flickering lights can also spark migraines. Other factors include weather changes and loud noises. Stress is often the leading cause, but so can the letdown after a period of stress, such as the weekend following a hard week of work. Tiredness or changing sleep patterns are other triggers too.

Summer Denims

Most bottom wardrobes that I have are mostly denims. It's probably because denims are ideal for all-season outfit. Another thing is that, I find denims more sturdy and tough against dirts, stains, etc...the reason why I would always wear them for travel.

I'm glad I saw Armani Exchange. I saw their most recent offer "New Premium Denim starting at $98". Well, not bad for a price too! :). Come to think of it. Denims are considered to be highly durable by many, much more if it's an Armani brand! ;). I don't mind the price as long as it's reasonable and worth it.

I like Armani's two of its special edition styles. I would love to wear this cropped sequin skinny fit denim. I usually prefer skinny fit denims for me because it looks better on me when I can wear it either with open sandals or closed boots in the cooler weather.
I also love the Harem Jean because of its trendy style. (capri style too). You see, I love wearing capris too, and I still buy capri jeans with unique designs as well. I think I look good with capri!
And speaking of the low rise design, I still want to choose the A|X Wing Skinny Fit style. It's good and perfect to pair with both sandals and high rise boots.
And here's some more good news for you! You can get te chance to win a pair of denim daily for the month of July by joining their text A|X contest promo. Just text the keyword "DENIM2" to ARMANI (276264). And if you purchase a full price pair of denim from Armani Exchange either online or in any of its store outlets from July 7-19, 2009, you will receive a gift card of $20 off on your next purchase of $100 or more. The card is valid July 30-August 15, 2009.

So, hurry up! Who doesn't want to own an Armani inspired street-chic culture designs? Isn't it nice to have one free being the lucky one? Try your luck.

Tips For Improving Your Memory

Being forgetful lately? Perhaps the following tips can help:
  • Choose a spot. If you're forever losing your keys, eyeglasses, etc..., designate a spot to keep them when you're not using them.
  • Make a list. It's OK. Even the simple act will help reinforce your memory.
  • Talk to Yourself. Saying "I've shut the garage" to yourself after you've done it gives you an extra verbal reminder-in case you forget.
  • Visualize. Create a visual image in your mind to make incoming information more memorable.
  • Use mnemonics. Mnemonics are memory aids - rhymes and acronyms, for example-that can help you remember lists, name, addresses and so on.
  • Get your ZZZs. Studies show that people remember recently learned information if they've had a good night's sleep.
  • Get Moving. Keeping up the blood flow to your brain enhances its cognitive functioning.
  • Eat for your brain. Hear-healthy foods also protect the brain. Fruits and vegetables, cold-water fish, and nuts such as almonds, pecans an walnuts may help keep your memory strong.
