Happy Lunar New Year to all my Chinese friends! How has your first day of celebrations been so far? I’m sure many of you have had a food-filling time! Well, mine has been packed to the brim with all sorts of goodies but I want to show you a traditional dish I’d prepared for breakfast this morning. This is a very common sweet soup familiar to most Chinese—it is not only tasty but is choke-full of beauty benefits for our skin. The best part is, anybody can cook it! So come, follow me as I show you an easy peasy step-by-step process of preparing this dish.
I never used to drink much Chinese tea, at least not daily. It’s something that I consume only when I visit a Chinese restaurant. So while I know about Pu-Erh tea and probably drank it a couple of times before, I don’t remember how it taste. However, since reading a beauty tip about the benefits of this tea, I went out to grab a tin and have since, been drinking a cup of Pu-Erh tea every day. Aside from drinking, I’ve also been including this beverage in my beauty routines. How? Read on to find out. (^_^)
Hello ladies! Here’s a question for you today: what is your next step when you’re done with cleansing your face and it is dripping with fresh water from the shower head or water tap? Do you wipe off the excess water immediately with a towel or a tissue paper, or do you leave your face to air dry naturally before you start on your next skincare regime?
What a difference the letter ‘s’ makes to the word ‘hip’. Not only a different meaning but of a completely different proportion that weighs in quite bottom-heavy for me. HA. Yes, petite as I am, I have an issue with my hips. They are big for my size and this is the reason I don’t wear pants and I prefer my clothes flare. I avoid body hugging dresses at all costs because they only serve to accentuate the unflattering curves below my waistline. However, much as I try to pick clothes that would work for my figure, I sometimes miss the mark. Completely.
Next to deodorants, I’m most reluctant to change shampoos once I’ve found something that works for me. Hair is a big deal for me and keeping it looking great has been a key lifelong goal. But I’m still curious and once a while, I’ll take an excursion to venture something new. I’m currently using the Giovanni Golden Wheat Deep Cleanse Shampoo but have been alternating that with the Giovanni Root 66 Max Volume Shampoo. Yes, anything that promises to increase body to limp and lifeless hair gets my interest all the time.
