Not made for selfie

Do you have a friend who is always pretty in selfies?

I know, irritating right? Because us girls have this hidden goal in life, that is to feel (and sometimes look) good about ourselves. And how do we do that? By comparing ourselves to others. Most often than not, we compare ourselves to the people surrounding us: our girlfriends, our office-mates, our neighbors, that girl in the coffee shop. I know it’s not healthy but admit it, we (sometimes) feel good if we look much better than the people around us. Why do you think fashion and trendy clothes are so profitable? It’s because they survive and feed on our insecurities.

If you have body issues, we do this all the time. Crooked teeth? Flat chest? It’s okay, at least I have an expensive bag, or a nicer shirt, or even VS undies.

I do have those insecurities. Sadly, I don’t have those fancy things, but you get my drift yeah? We focus on the other good things about us, sure we’re good people who pay our taxes, donate to goodwill and whatever ViralNova-worthy things we do but people on the social media can’t really see that. Because believe it or not, us humans have this innate longing to be noticed and to belong.

So back to the blessed bitches who looked divine in selfies. Obviously I’m not one of them. I’m cool with that. I look good in front of the mirror anyway. I woke up with a faint blush on my cheeks and my hair was gorgeous when I removed it from its bun. I looked perf to be honest and it put a smile on my face even and that’s even before coffee. That’s huge, mind you.

If only I could capture that with my brand new iPhone so that I could post a photo of me with the hashtags #humblebrag #gorgeous #perfect, that would be glorious.

P.S. In case you didn’t get the tone of this post, read it again with sarcasm. And my iPhone is old boohoo. Not really hehe.

Review | PH Care Vzone Bikini Trimmer and Shaver

Hello lovely people. How are you today?

It’s been so long since I last posted product reviews like this but I just can’t help but spread the word about my new BFF. It’s something that helps me keep my girly bits well-groomed. Yes, I am talking about the bikini area in case you are wondering.

Some women are still hush-hush when talking about our womanly bits down there. It’s understandable. I mean, how can you start a conversation with your girlfriends about your vajayjay? There’s no easy way really but to be blunt about it. So let’s all be adults here and talk about feminine hygiene and grooming.

Personally, I like to keep my pubes (yes, that’s pubic hair) trimmed. I had a talk about my OB/GYN last month and she doesn’t really recommend shaving because according to her it can get itchy when it grows back. But us locals prefer to wash ourselves than wipe with tissue whenever mother nature calls. More hair down there means that moisture is retained longer; moisture in the genital area can cause bad odor and sometimes lead to infection. Ewww!

So a lot of women are making the change. Some prefer to be bare down there thus bikini waxing is so in these past few years. But I don’t like strangers going near my privates so that’s not an option for me. My preferred method is trimming using scissors. And I’m so happy to discover PH Care’s Vzone Bikini Trimmer.

Eight fun facts about welding that you never knew


Being a welder is a pretty serious occupation but it doesn’t have to be. While professional welding firms like WIA are a gold mine of information on how to tackle the job and how to making welding your career of choice, there is also a fun side less well-known in the community, or even among professionals. Here are just a few fun facts.

Old as the hills

The origins of welding can be traced back to the Bronze Age. The earliest example of a welded piece is a small gold circular box dating back more than 2,000 years. Its joints have been overlapped and pressure welded together.

Blacksmiths were early welders

Blacksmiths in the Middle Ages were a very early form of dedicated welders. They made weapons and farm equipment by forging pieces of iron by first heating them and then forging them together by hammering. Continue reading »
