It is always my dream to visit Hawaii someday. There might be a possibility that I and my husband can go there this year, and we are eyeing for an October trip. We are not yet so sure about it if it will work out. But I am still crossing my fingers and wishing it will work out!

Just like Florida, I always look forward to enjoy the climate, weatherwise ;). I am a tropical person, the reason I believe why I would always want to go back there for a trip. It is the same through with Hawaii. I would also love to check and visit the beautiful white sand beaches that I only happen see in! poor me! lol!

As of now, I want to make the trip in October work. Please, Lord!

Outsmartin Pet Allergies

When it comes to how and why our furry pets make us sneeze and wheeze, here is what the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology's straight answer;
It's not the hair. The allergen comes from the saliva, urine, oil glands and dead skin cells of your pet, so, keeping a short-haired dog or hairless cat isn't always "safer".

Some animals are bred to have lower levels of allergens, but you can still be bothered by different ones. So, bottom line; - no pet is completely hypoallergenic.

Note: As much as possible, try temporarily diving with Fluffy before you commit ;).

Outdoor Thermometers

I have been to many botanical gardens in different places, and so far they are still one of the best places to hang out when you want to commune with nature ;). Plants can always help relieve stress from a person who needs to relax and just meditate in the garden. One of the reasons why we need to take extra care precautions for our garden plants.
It also helps to place outdoors thermometers to track the weather temperature to avoid them being exposed to the extremes that are bad for them. You can check these outdoor thermometers at cleanairgardening and you might want to buy one if you don't have one for your garden yet.

Making The Most Of Your Doctor's Appointment

Your doctor's appointment time is always crucial, so make the most of your time with it since it can just happen in the "blink of an eye".

First, note down specific concerns or symptoms you have before appointment. Try to brush up on your family history which can help your doctor decide whether and when to screen you for certain conditions.

Next, tell your main problem first even if you have 15 more others you want to discuss. Tell at least 1 or 2 complaints to your doctor upfront. Narrowing things down will help ensure that your most pressing problem gets addressed.

Telling your major life events to your doctor like a divorce or recent job loss is fine. It can actually help him assess your physical/mental health thus can provide you with better care.

Finally confirm your appointment about what happens next. Will your doctor call you with test results? Or should you call or wait for a mail? Do you need to see a specialist or return for follow-up?

Wireless Gadgets From Gadget Shack

As life is becoming more technical, the same is also true about gadgets being manufactured which are innovative and practical to use. And talking about innovative gadgets, there are online stores today that offer many of the latest products, one which is Gadget Shack. Their homepage is easy-to-use and very informative.

Gadget Shack offers a variety of quality wireless gadgets and devices that can help make life easier and somewhat safer for many, such as the wireless intercom system, wireless alarm motion detectors, motion sensors, and many more.

There are various types of intercom choices that can be used in businesses and are great inexpensive options for home as well. A portable intercom is a wireless device that can be used so that individuals can talk to each other within a certain range, and can be used within a home to allow easy communication between the garage/workroom/backyard/frontporch anywhere the intercom is. There is a wireless intercom system, which does not need any electrical outlet that has an 1000' range and costs only $109.

You can also find everyday items like a wireless doorbell which can be installed in no time at all. I am going to get one for my second house in the Philippines - I understand they are so easy to install I can do it myself. So that's on my to-do list when I go back home this October. How exciting! ;).

Things you Need to Know About Vaccines

Before vaccines were invented, at least 3,000 kids in the U.S. each year died from measles and 10,000 annually were paralyzed by polio. But as medicine advances, more and more shots (including boosters)-at least 50 can be given to a kid before his/her 18th birthday compared to those kids born in 1983 which can only be 11 shots.
But it seems that even though there are plenty of evidences that vaccines are safe, many parents are still nervous. Here are some facts to help you ease your mind:

First thing you should need to know is that your child may not have to get so many vaccines on the same day. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) schedule, a kid may get as many as 7 shots in one check up, which many doctors say that it's perfectly safe. But few pediatricians say that giving so many at once may increase the risk of side effects. If you prefer to space out the shots for your kids, talk to your doctor.

Thimerosal, a preservative made with mercury that can trigger autism is no longer found in most vaccines. This is one thing many parents are worried about although many studies have found no such link, but due to the scrutiny, the public health agencies had removed from childhood vaccines in 2001. Trace amounts are still in some flu shots, although most experts say this is safe.

Reactions are pretty common. For example, one in four kids who get the DTaP (diphteria, tetanus and acellular pertussis) develop mild reactions such as fever, redness or swelling, or soreness/tenderness at the injection site.
Apply ice on the spot and take ibuprofen. A serious bad reaction will be a swelling as big as a softball and running a high fever. In that case, see your doctor.

Personal Safety Sprays

Nowadays, safety and security is the world's number one priority.
I still remember when I was in high school and there were big issues of kidnappings, rapes and killings in the news! My mom then thought of giving me a pepper spray to carry it with me every time I go to school and come back home. That was kind of sad that we had to always deal with even until now.

Have you thought of buying an OC spray? Did you know that these kind of defense sprays can save your life? Whether you're just going for a jog, going at the car park area, or wherever you think where your safety is compromised, carrying at least one of these can be worthwhile and can even be your "angel".
Come to think of it, whether we accept it or not, wherever we go, the risk of danger is always there. Not even in our own homes that we can consider it's a 100% safe! Today, we always have to be concern about our own safety.

Another self-defense device worth considering is the mace spray. They can be in the form of many sizes such as the size of key chains. Much more convenient to carry and yet very powerful to use when you're in danger.

When you buy pepper spray at Sabre online, you will know it is something worth your money. It's always smart to get one at an affordable price, and making your self safe.

Alternate Schedules For Vaccines

Many parents would still rather want to reduce the number of shots their kids get at once. One option is actually controversial, outlined by Dr. Sears in "The Vaccine Book". The following are the highlights:

Hepatitis B Vaccine:
American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP): Give first dose at birth.
Dr. Sears: It's okau to wait until the preteen years since hepatitis B is sexually transmitted. It can start at the age of 10, to give the first dose.

Polio Vaccine:
AAP: Give at 2 months old.
Dr. Sears: Give at ages 1 or 2.

MMR (Measles, Mumps & Rubella) Vaccine:
AAP: Give at age 1 with the chicken pox vaccine and a hepatitis A booster.
Dr. Sears: Wait until age 3 or 4, before entering school. He says that since the shot combines 3 live vaccines, it's more apt to cause side effects - particularly in younger kids with less-developed immune systems.

They say horse fencing involves a long term investment. I must agree with it. There was one time when I was able to visit a farm somewhere in Texas, and it was my first experience in America :).

It was a very memorable experience because the place was very peaceful, and it was a large ranch area where horses are gazing at the green meadows.

The vacation house was surrounded with a horse fence and I realized the importance of it being sturdy and durable to last for many long years. It would also a tough thing to make a fence that can stretch as long as more than a mile combined, lol!
Thank goodness for Buckley Fence online that offers a new standard of fencing solutions for a horse fence!

Why buy and get a horse fence that are not long lasting? Buckley Fences are strong, and reflect strong impression of metal horse fencing solutions that can protect your horses and yet are designed for easy installation as well.

By the way, Buckley horse fences have expected lifetime of 25 to 50 years, worth long enough for your investment, don't you think?

Sore No More!

Most exercise aches can be alleviated on your own, with some exceptions such as sudden trauma like fall or if pain lasts longer than 2 weeks. In this case, you need to see a doctor.
Otherwise, they are most likely to be non-serious injuries which can be treated by following the guide below:

  • Lower Back (or upper butt). - this could be a Piriformis syndrome (a tight butt muscle) or a herniated disk (some are worse). As treatment, take an OTC pain reliever, rest when you feel sore, then hit the gym. See doctor if you have a fever, leg weakness or bladder changes. These may signal infections or nerve compression.
  • Elbow - It may be inflammation of the lateral epicondyle tendon (tennis elbow) or the medial epicondyle tendon (golfer's elbow). Take an OTC pain reliever, and apply some ice on the affected elbow. Wear a brace to stabilize the tendons, and ease yourself back on course (or court).
  • Knee - an inflamed or tight iliotibial band (IT band) is a pain you feel outside the knee. If it hurts around your knee cap it could be runner's knee-a wearing away of the cartilage under the knee cap. See your doctor if your knee is very swollen or gives out. This may sign a tear of the ACL or meniscus (knee cartilage).
  • Heel - Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the connective tissue at the bottom of the foot, which helps support your arch. An OTC gel heel inserts may help reduce pain and swelling, and street runners may feel relief by switching to a treadmill or trail.
  • Skin - It could be medial tibial stress syndrome or skin splints. Try switching to a non-weight-bearing exercise like swimming or biking for 2 weeks, and apply ice on the affected area for 20 minutes after each session. See your doctor if pain is localized on the outer edge of the skinbone. You may have a stress fracture.
  • Ankle - It could be a sprain, which happens when the ligaments are stretched beyond normal range. Try the RICE method. Rest; ice for 20 minutes 3x a day. Compress it with an elastic bandage, and elevate foot above heart level as much as possible for 48 hours. If you can't put any weight on the injured foot, or if still swollen and painful after 3 days, see your doctor.

Discount Fashion Jewelry

Designer-inspired discount fashion jewelry that are trendy. exquisite and yet affordable is one of those things you shouldn't be missing these days! As a woman, I myself do like to use them and I usually enjoy doing that "mix and match" attire with some of my collections whenever I go out depending on what the occasion is ;).

Also, I am an avid shopper online, so that everytime I find an online shop that is worth visiting and buying stuff from, I usually bookmark them for future shopping spree! :)
Although I have only a few signature fashion jewelries, I don't really consider myself as an obsessive collector of signature jewelries. What I can honestly admit is that, I have lots of fashion jewelries and yet I bought them at a cheaper price and yet they are still doing good and are lasting.

A cheap costume jewelry doesn't mean poor quality. I just hate to think that many would look at it that way. But a smart shopper knows best! There are lots of cheap fashion jewelries that are made with top quality materials, and even celebrities are wearing them particularly those that are designer-inspired! Any fashion jewelries, whether expensive or cheap doesn't matter any way, because fashion jewelries are never based on the price when you wear them!

Go to Finders Keepers online and start checking on their costume jewelry rings. These designer-inspired rings are too cute too resist! ;)

Pads or Tampons?

I am of course addressing this post to women out there ;).

Actually, either one you use is really a matter of personal preference. Here are tips from the experts that are worth knowing.

A scented tampon or pad can be irritating, so skip anything scented since vaginal skin is thinner and more sensitive, said Dr. Streicher, assistant professor of medicine at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine.

It's okay to leave a tampon in overnight but be sure to put in a new one before bed and change it first thing in the morning.
Leaving it in longer than packaging says could up your risk for a vaginal infection like yeast or bacterial vaginosis, or even a urinary tract infection.
If you've had toxic shock syndrome (TSS) before, stick with pads.

What Your Headache Means

Headaches more often affect women than men. But whether you're a man or woman, find out how to get relief:

If you feel headaches all over your head, it could mean you're tired. Get a nap.
If it's impossible, sip a cup of coffee. Caffeine can counteract changes in the brain that causes head pain.

If you feel dizzy and there's tightness around your head, you could be dehydrated. Drink fluids preferably something with electrolytes like a sports drink or ginger ale which can help work faster. Take aspirin for pain, safer than acetaminophen when your body is dry.

If you have a band of pain around your forehead, probably you're stressed. This pain often comes with neck or shoulder pain and tend to occur in the afternoon when anxiety levels are at high.
Relax with deep breathing or gentle stretching.

If you have headache on one side of your head, it could be migraine especially if you're sensitive to light, or just your hormones (for women). For women, it usually is caused by a drop in estrogen before your period.
Migraines and hormonal headaches often don't respond to OTC medications.
Meditation can help, or you can talk to your doctor about RX options.

How To Ease a Cramp

Dehydration causes cramps, so be sure to take at least 20 ounces of water three hours before working out (if possible), and drink up to 8 ounces every 15 minutes during exercise.

A cramp is caused by muscle spasm, so stretching the muscle counters its tightening. Stop and gently stretch the sore spot for 20-45 seconds or til the pain goes away.

Flexing a cramping muscle may make it release. This action triggers a safety switch (called Golgi tendon organ) which relaxes a muscle when it's too strained.

Massage cramp by rubbing the muscle vigorously as if you're kneading dough. This combines the previous two methods by stretching and compressing the muscle, helping to release the cramp.

Calendar, Planner or Organizer?

Which one is really for you to use?

If your routine only involves appointments, a basic calendar usually gets the job done. Whether you go with paper or electronic planners, you simply need one that gives you enough space to write your daily appointments.

If your daily task is too busy and you have many things to do such as breaking down projects into lots of smaller steps, you're more into a planner person. Go with both electronic and paper versions and shop for one that says "task management" on it that has a clear system for prioritizing to-dos.

If you like the idea of having a space to keep track of addresses, doctor's contact info. family medications info, shopping lists, as well as appointments and to-dos, you need an organizer that includes calendars, task management systems and space for storing all sorts of your information. Search for a package that lists exactly what you need like allowance tracking, workout tracking, menu planners, etc...

And yes, looks does matter! :) When it comes to PDAs and paper planners, you'll use the thing a heck of a lot more if you like it. So, make sure you enjoy looking and using at it and that it really fits your personality.
