Benefits of Houseplants

Various studies have shown that houseplants are very beneficial to the human are some simple reasons why they are great to have around.

My very 1st success <3
1) They make breathing easier by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen.

2) As part of the photosynthetic process, plants release water vapor into the air, therefore increasing the humidity of the air around them. That in turn will help us to decrease the chance of having dry skin, colds, dry coughs and sore throats.

3) Plants will purify our air by removing the toxins away...such as formaldehyde (found in rugs, cigarette smoke, vinyl...etc), benzene and trichloroethylene (both found in inks, paints and solvents...etc)

4) Studies have also shown that plants can lower your blood pressure, decrease anxiety and fatigue, while increasing your ability to focus on the task at hand.

Aside from some of the reasons listed above, I'm sure there are plenty of other reasons why houseplants are great to have around. If you're just like me, a person who definitely does not have a green thumb...then you might want to shop around to find the perfect houseplant(s) that will be more compatible with your lifestyle and the environment for it to grow in.

I just got lucky this time with a Coffee Arabica Plant (given to me by my lovely sister and her fiance)--it's still alive, and looking good!  I've had it for almost 3 months now...I think it's my first success with any potted plants or flowers.  I've had a pot of healthy yellow Gerbera Daisy in the past, and it wilted away within months.   Maybe coffee plants are just more hearty and less fussy.

Oh So Cute! Disney Tsum Tsum Lip Smacker Lip Balm Collection

How many lip balms can anyone really use? - probably not that many, but how can you resist these cute Disney Tsum Tsum lip balms?  The suggested retail price is about $4.95 each, which is not bad until you realized that you can't just buy one and not the others.  I ended up walking out of the store with 4 super adorable lip balms, and $20 less in my wallet...but it's all worth it (I think) These lip balm pots are formulated to moisturize and leave a translucent shine on your lips.  They are also considered collectible items with 4 special edition flavors.  I don't know how long they will be available for purchase,  but I did find mine at a local Walgreens recently.  I'm pretty sure you can check out other major drugstores around your city, or visit Lip Smacker online to buy them.  I hope they will come out with more characters in the future. <3 Mickey: Marshmallow Pop Minnie: Strawberry Lollipop Winnie the Pooh: Honey Pot Stitch: Blueberry Wave

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7R Raspberry Red) Review

I've been looking forward to getting my hair colored and it finally happened, thanks to a couple of lovely family members that helped me out!  Sorry it took me a while to review the Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color, but I just got it done yesterday and here's what I think about it.   I normally get my hair colored at the Salon, but this time I decided to do it myself (well, I didn't get it all done entirely by myself...but mainly because I wanted an even coating all around so I decided to ask for some assistance.) I think the Hello Bubble Foam Color is actually quite convenient and easy to handle even by yourself,  if you don't care about sectioning your hair into smaller bunches.  Treat it like you are shampooing your hair, and it will probably come out alright.  Before you start dying your hair, I would recommend applying a bit of vaseline or baby oil around your hairline and on your ears as well, so that your skin won't get stained if yo

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7P Vintage Rose Pink) Review

At the end of 2014, I wanted to change my hair color, but I didn't have anything specific in mind.  I went to the local drugstores in my area and looked at a lot of colors and read their ingredients--and I went home feeling uninspired by all of it.  So I thought, maybe I should just dye my hair the same raspberry red from Hello Bubble as I did before.   I went online to shop for it, and that led me to the new color called 7P Vintage Rose Pink. I knew instantly that was the color I wanted to try!  I had a great experience with this brand the first time when I used it ( Check Out My Previous Post For 7R Raspberry Red ), so I wasn't worried about the formula, but more about how and if the color would turn out on my hair.   Once again, Hello Bubble Foam Color did not disappoint me! I loved it!  Why I like the Formula :  I've mentioned in my previous post that I really like the foam formula.  It's non-drippy, and extra easy to apply by yourself (this time I re
