America's Next Top Model Cycle 18: The British Invasion

by , in

Supermodel Tyra Banks is back for the newest season of America’s Next Top Model. It’s Cycle 18 this time. This reality show is one of the most successful reality shows in the US. What makes this cycle different from the previous ones is that it is a competition between models from Great Britain and America. They call this cycle “The British Invasion”. Tyra herself chose 7 British and & 7 American girls and put them together in one house. So yes, it’s Brits versus Yanks this time. Each race will prove that theirs is the best.

There’s also another catch, the Brits were former contestants of the British Next Top Model seasons while the Americans have no experience whatsoever with modeling. That makes the Brits way ahead of the Americans since they are not amateurs anymore. And oh, I just love their English accent. It makes me think of Harry Potter all the time.

Personally, I am rooting for the Brits, particularly Ashley. I first saw her when she joined British Next Top Model, and I am more excited now that she made it to ANTM. She has a memorable face with eyes that always smiles, distinctive freckles and a great, rocking body. She has that kind of look that’s made for couture and high fashion that will click in the International Market. What I am so excited about is the fact that our very own Filipino designer Francis Libiran will be dressing the girls in one of its photoshoots also which will be aired tonight.

This cycle is totally a kick ass entertainment like we haven’t seen before. I am sure of that!

You can’t beat a bit of fresh air

Exercise is a bit of a conundrum. How can something that’s supposed to be so good for you feel so bad whilst you’re actually doing it? Admittedly, after it’s all over and the endorphins are flowing, you feel like you could take on the world. But whilst you’re on that treadmill – sweat pouring down your face, cheeks redder than a Beefeater’s smock – it certainly doesn’t feel good.

And let’s be honest, it rarely looks good either. Put Beyoncé on a treadmill for half an hour and her A-list glamour would soon start to fade, bringing her just a little bit closer to us mere mortals. To really get the best out of a workout, you have to push yourself to the limits. In the case of exercise, ‘no pain no gain’ should become your daily mantra.


Look good, feel better

But there is something you can do to make exercise that bit more bearable. With a stylish new gym kit, a supportive top, stylish joggers and Reebok trainers, you can limit the damage ordinarily done by wearing your partner’s old football shorts and shirt combo.

Of course, exercising in the gym is one thing, but in that confined space you can’t help but feel that people are looking and judging. With summer coming up, it could be the time to start exercising outdoors. If the sun is shining and the skies are blue, there is really no excuse. Go for a run or get the bike out of the garage for a quick spin. Exercising outdoors provides a break from your daily routine, and gets you back in touch with nature. In deepest, darkest winter it may be your idea of a nightmare, but on a summer’s day it will be much more invigorating and really get the circulation going.

Keep on running

Whilst you’re not exactly away from prying eyes when you’re outside, popping a few uplifting tunes on your MP3 player will soon help you forget about your surroundings.

And there’s one final thing that makes exercising outdoors so great – it’s completely free. There are no joining or membership fees – just you and the great outdoors. Letting you get fit and healthy on your own terms.

Walang Hanggan Fever

by , in

Everyone is so hooked with teleseryes nowadays. It’s so well-loved that it’s already been a part of our everyday lives. The hottest teleserye in Pinoy TV now is called “Walang Hanggan”. It’s a story of love, coupled with deception and dark secrets buried long ago.

The cast is made up of showbiz royalties like Susan Roces and Helen Gamboa. Susan here plays the role of a responsible elder sister to Helen, who is a tyrannical and controlling Donya. Big names like Dawn Zulueta, Richard Gomez and Rita Avila are also in the said teleserye. Dawn and Richard used to be lovers, but due to Helen’s (Richard’s mom) manipulation, the two separated, which made the way clear for Rita to pursue Richard.

But apart from these medical courses, a consultant interview course is also made available to people who may want to undergo trainings on how to act and speak correctly during an interview.

My Team Monitor, Employee Monitoring Software

Vroom, Vroom -- Mustang Performance Go Boom! Aftermarket goes ca-ching!

by , in
2014 Ford Mustang Convertible

The Mustang brand has been the biggest name in muscle cars since one went mano a mano against, believe it or not, James Bond's Aston Martin way back in 1964.

(It's an early bit of genius Ford product placement you can see in "Goldfinger." Another 'Stang pops in the follow-up Bond flick, "Thunderball," also. Love them old spy flicks.)

Ever since, Mustang performance upgrades have been a mega industry.

I have no idea how many headers, intake manifolds, and other vehicular knick-knacks and doodads have been sold. I know it's what my friends would call (cleaning it up a bit), "a freakin' buttload."

I can guess, it's enough to put some gearheads in the poorhouse and others (the ones who make them and install them) on Easy Street.

Right now, though, one popular trend for those with more recent models are performance chips that basically tell your car "be better."

Chips seem to have that power these days; they're like a really tough but fair boss. Maybe.

Performance chip manufacturers say they increase both performance and fuel efficiency. That obviously makes them a very tempting purchase for those considering a Mustang performance upper.

In today's economy, and the price of gas being what it is, it seems pretty obvious these things are going to continue to sell.

Staying Feminine in A Man's World

by , in
There are a lot of industries in the Western world that have typically been run by men and women are still trying to take a foothold in these areas. One of these businesses is the trucking industry. Women are still trying to get the respect they deserve as a trucker and it's been a long time coming. While a lot of male truckers hold the female ones in respect, there are many that still jeer and leer at these women drivers. 

This means that women have to stay strong while remaining feminine in a man's world. Finding the perfect balance is often a difficult task and some women aren’t able to stand up to the battle ahead. It takes a lot of strength to face these things on a day-to-day basis and the only way to do it is to know for certain that you are in the profession you want to be in; and that nothing will stop you from being there. 

A woman needs to know when to stand up for her rights and when it's best just to walk away. In 99% of the cases it's just a matter of walking away from the situation. Arguing with a man over women's rights is just going to leave you feeling less powerful because it is a no-win situation. By walking away, however, you have built up your own credibility and can hold your head high.

It is interesting to note that in the trucking world there are now bathrooms set up separately for men and women in most truck stops. Women are now free to don their womens bathrobes after a shower and not worry about a man seeing them. They can take their time to apply cream and makeup at the bathroom sink in their women's bathrobes because they have been accepted by the trucking industry as a solid force that isn't going to be going anywhere soon.

There are a lot of other industries that have been male oriented in the past and women are still trying to make their move into them. When most people think of women entering the workforce they think of the standard businesses where women are routinely accepted. Women have marked their place as doctors, lawyers and CEO's of major corporations. Now there is just a small fight remaining for the few remaining businesses where women still have to fight for the respect that they deserve.

Staying feminine in a man's world often means just walking away from a fight. There are plenty of men out there that will give you the respect you should have and they are the ones that deserve your time.

Discount Coupons over the Internet

by , in
In the past, discounts were given to customers through coupons placed in the newspapers, magazines and some other publications. Also, product lines with brochures made it a part of their marketing plan to publish promotional materials featuring a wide variety of goodies along with the best deals, price-cuts and discount coupons. These discounts are also given in time for holidays, start of a season and some special celebrations. People had to wait for these times of the year to get some pocket-friendly prices on products. 

Coupons are to be cut and presented upon purchase in the certain authorized store if not their official branch. The same principle also is applied as with coupons found in the dailies, magazines and other printed materials circulated in the country. 

Customers during that time had to spend some amount of money in order to buy the printed materials just to avail of discounts and the best deals. But this promotional strategy for the companies and product lines was made to an innovation by many e-commerce sites. 

With the advent of the new technology, computers and the internet, many online stores have plagued the World Wide Web offering the products that could be purchased easily while a person sits at the comforts of the home or at the office. Then, days after, the product will reach the customer’s doorstep. 

This process now will not involve purchase of a newspaper or any other publication material just to get discounts. A customer needs to log-in to a specific site which offers the best deals on the products he desires to purchase. Some sites require their customers to print the coupons and present it to the authorized local store. But in some cases, there is no need to print but the customer must take note of the coupon codes and it will serve as the requirement in order to avail of the discount. 

Yet among the sites which offer some home depot promotions and discount codes, one needs to be certain of the authenticity of the promo so that it will not waste the customer’s time and effort in going to the local store. Before you go to purchase in the local store, get to call and inquire on the said promo. This is just to make sure if the promo truly exists and not a mere scam. 

But as with e-commerce sites today, the purchasing process and offering of discounts becomes hassle free and is done through the site itself. Upon payment through credit card, the site would require the customer to enter the home depot promotions and discount codes so that the customer could get hold of the promised price cut. Customers through the years loved to save money at the purchase of products. Even hotels, restaurants, resorts and other business establishments these days have adopted this promotional strategy in order to attract customers.

When people hear this word they usually think of photo manipulation, but they do not realize how useful this device is for application of amazing makeup. The best special effects makeup artists and beauty makeup artists in the movie industry use air brushes to create their amazing designs.

Why is the airbrush so amazing? The airbrush gives you even and fine coverage that you can’t get anywhere else. Some companies tried to replicate this with aerosol cans of makeup that really just sputtered and sprayed gobs of makeup after a while. If you adjust the tip of the airbrush, you can also create extremely fine details with sharp edges or blend everything together perfectly. It’s hard to understand how amazing this tool really is.

Scrubs, Nursing Scrubs, Medical Scrubs
An airbrush creates an extremely fine spray of makeup, so if you plan to get one and use it in your routine, get some nursing scrubs. When you apply your base with an airbrush, it gets on your clothes and these will help you prevent ruining your outfit for the night because they can slip right over them. Because they are so baggy, they are also easily taken off without ruining your makeup.

Remember that this is not a small investment, but it can replace half of those expensive brushes in your makeup kit. You are going to need a good quality airbrush a compatible air pump and a lot of practice. The type of air pump is extremely important. You want one with a moisture filter to prevent condensation inside the unit that will be sprayed out with the makeup and cause sputtering. Continuous flow pumps are important as well. If you get a pump that does not offer a continuous flow you are going to have pulses of pressure that will make it impossible to control the flow of makeup.

You will also want to get a good video that shows you how to use, clean and maintain your airbrush. If you can, a hands on class focused on makeup application with an airbrush will prove to be indispensable. In no time you will be hitting the scene with perfectly applied, striking makeup.
