Gift Idea: Interactive Mug

The Heartea tumbler has been design more for a social purpose than resolving any current design related issues. Meant for the “Nanum” project (a charity that donates 100% of its proceeds to provide educational scholarships to impoverished children),

the design adds an emotional element with the glowing heart at the center of the mug.

This indicative glow reflects the temperature of the contents in the tumbler; meaning blue for a cold beverage, orange for a warm cuppa tea and red for the piping hot coffee.

Retailing at $25 a piece, it’s not a bad donation to make when in exchange you’re getting this cute interactive mug!

The Danger of HandSanitizer



photo source:www.privatelabelpartners.co
 

I've seen an episode of THE DOCTORS today and I was literally speechless with what I have discovered, it is very dangerous and every parents should be aware of the risk and danger

Read On:

Hand sanitizer is the latest trend
 in drinking for underage teens


Hand sanitizer is the latest trend in drinking for underage teens, worrying doctors after six young people were hospitalized with alcohol poisoning in California from drinking the antibacterial solution to get drunk.

Containing 62 percent ethyl alcohol, teens are using hand sanitizer as a quick way to get drunk, as the gel is the equivalent of a shot and a half of hard liquor. The trend has been evident on YouTube with teens posting video footage of chugging hand sanitizer cocktails.

According to the Los Angeles Times, teens used salt to distill the alcohol from the sanitizers with instructions easily found online, leaving a 120 proof shot stronger than most whiskeys and vodkas at 80 proof.

All it takes is just a few swallows and you have a drunk teenager, Dr. Cyrus Rangan of the Children's Hospital Los Angeles told the Los Angeles Times. There is no question that it is dangerous. It is kind of scary that they go to that extent to get a shot of essentially hard liquor.

As a mother, I felt disturbed and scared knowing how a simple bottle of hand sanitizer can ruin one’s life and can lead into destruction even death,  it is our responbility as parents to mold our kids, to guide them and take them to the right path, the world is full of rugrats we have to be prepared for the worst...
I don’t know if it is right to write something like this especially that most of my readers are from the middle east where liquors are strongly prohibited, after all this what blogging is all about, to share and be heard.

Extra Income: Ways & Means


photo source:kajabiapp.com

One reason why we are in foreign land is to work and earn though, in many circumstances, we ended up short of cash for our needs and wants,

Some would just want to live to the situation thinking that it is better than nothing, nonetheless, there are few who would go out of the box and hunt ways to earn extra money

The difficulty to budget our income has become a predictable event for almost everyone, there are hundred of ways to actually make money but very few who see beyond what they can do …

Here are my personal tips on how to generate extra income

1.)   Sell your Craft

Sell your talents, expand your work/services, if you’re a teacher you can always expand your time to teach kids at home by tutoring services, or if you have the talent in photography you can also teach or accept paid services, if you love to cook then sell home cooked meals and so on….

This is just to say that we can generate income with the things that is given to us, we just have to be open for possibilities and have that confidence to talk and sell your talents

2.)   Product selling

I’m trying to figure out how to discuss this, because I would consider myself a mixed seller (lols), I sell any products in the market that looks cute and usable… (I’m talking about a thing not human…! Stop it green people!!)

You can buy & sell, join a networking group, or open your own on-line shop

What I’m trying to say is, people buy goods and services to meet their needs and wants, and this allows us to take an opportunity to sell the products that people needs and wants


3.)   Mystery shopping

I’m a mystery shopper for 3 years now and I love every minute doing this task, I was affiliated with several companies in the US & Asia and always had so much fun making money while shopping

Best of all, you don’t need an experience to do this job, It is open for everyone who have the time and simply love shopping, (if interested e-mail me I’ll send you the affiliate programs and companies)


4.)   Part time jobs

In Kuwait, part time job is a big NO NO and risky, it’s a desperate attempt to be in such situation, I was a on-line business marketing for one of the company in Kuwait—(safer side of doing it, is to be on-line) but reality check:  so many companies now are offering part time jobs, you might want to check weekly classified papers it’s free and everything is there,

(fyi--- Kuwait Ministry is now approving a part time jobs for private sectors but with a consent from the employer)

5.)   Blogging

I started blogging a year ago with a clean intention without anything in mind  to generate extra income in blogging; I’m not a good writer first of all!!  But I work hard, it’s a learning process for me but I eventually learned how to be affiliated with so many deals on-line and slowly earn a profit, it’s not that huge but just enough to be paid of the time and effort



If you want to become successful and you want to earn a consistent extra income, it will take time, effort, and hard work, There is no easy fix or "easy way out" You have to move toward with an idea, create a plan and take action

The Amazing Hydrogen Peroxide..!

 
Photo Source: Google photo search
 

Call me crazy but  I’m so obsess with HP (hydrogen peroxide) not because I’m scared of bacteria (ohh well… you can include that I guess,) ,

I'm using 3-4% HP to clean my ears twice a month and here’s the instruction;
 ( I got this idea from livestrong.com)

Things You'll Need

  • 3 to 4 percent hydrogen peroxide solution
  • Towel
  • Bowl
  • Cotton Balls
Pull your hair back and cover your head with a towel or hat. This prevents hair lightening or discoloring from the bleaching properties of peroxide. Alternatively, you can apply petroleum jelly on the hair strands around your ear
Lay down on your left side. You may use a pillow, but choose a flat or low loft pillow to keep your head level so your ear is parallel to the ceiling. A small tilt is fine, but keeping your head level allows the hydrogen peroxide to penetrate deeper and prevents drainage from coming out of the ear.
Using the cap as a measuring tool, pour 1 capful of hydrogen peroxide into your right ear,You should experience fizzing or popping sounds, and you may feel a deep itch inside of your ear. This is the hydrogen peroxide working, breaking down wax buildup, so do not touch inside your ears or interrupt treatment because of the discomfort.

Soak the hydrogen peroxide in your ear for 20 minutes. Stay in your resting position and allow the solution to work. The fizz and popping sounds may become less frequent or intense after a few minutes, and this pattern may continue as time passes--especially in cases of mild wax buildup.

Rise from your resting position and empty the peroxide solution from your ear. Hold a bowl or towel under your ear as the solution drains. If you're using a towel, don't press the towel too tight against your ear. Some pieces or chucks of wax may still come loose as the solution runs out.

Wipe the outer ear with a towel, including the back of the ear. Behind the ear, there is a crevice between the skin on the head and the skin on the ear. Clean the crevice with a cotton ball soaked in hydrogen peroxide.
Repeat the process on the left ear, resting on your right side. Cover the pillow with a towel in case of more drainage coming out from the right ear. If you have chunks of wax coming out of the ear as you empty the solution, wait an hour before repeating the same cleaning process on the left ear

Bit scary to imagine but once you’ve tried it well, its amazing!!


just when you know this little bottle is just for wound, then think again….???
Hydrogen peroxide is the only germicidal agent composed only of water and oxygen. Like ozone, it kills disease organisms by oxidation! Hydrogen peroxide is considered the worlds safest all natural effective sanitizer. It kills microorganisms by oxidizing them, which can be best described as a controlled burning process. When Hydrogen peroxide reacts with organic material it breaks down into oxygen and water.

1. Whiten Clothes – An Alternative to Beach
Add a cup of Peroxide to white clothes in your laundry to whiten them. Peroxide is great to get rid of blood stains on clothes and carpets. If there is blood on clothing, just pour directly on the spot, let it sit for about a minute, then rub and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary.

2. Health
Your body makes Hydrogen peroxide to fight infection which must be present for our immune system to function correctly. White blood cells are known as Leukocytes. A sub-class of Leukocytes called Neutrophils produce hydrogen peroxide as the first line of defense against toxins, parasites, bacteria, viruses and yeast.

3. Rejuvenating Detoxifying Bath
Use about 2 quarts 3% Hydrogen peroxide to a tub of warm water. Soak at least 1/2 hour, adding hot water as needed to maintain a comfortable water temperature.

4. Foot Fungus
To cure a foot fungus, simply spray a 50/50 mixture of Hydrogen peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every night and let dry.

5. Douche
Add 2 capfuls of 3% Hydrogen peroxide in warm distilled water once to twice a week to remove even chronic yeast infections.

6. Colonic or Enema
For a colonic, add 1 cup (8 ozs.) 3% H202 to 5 gallons warm water. (Do not exceed this amount) For an enema, add 1 tablespoon of 3% H202 to a quart of warm distilled water.

7. Infections
Soak any infections or cuts in 3% for five to ten minutes several times a day. Even gangrene that would not heal with any medicine has been healed by soaking in Hydrogen peroxide. Put half a bottle of hydrogen peroxide in your bath to help rid boils, fungus or other skin infections.
8. Bird Mites Infections
Patients infected by tiny mites report that hydrogen peroxide effectively kills the mites on their skins. They spray it on their skin a couple of times (with a few minutes in between the applications) with amazing results.

9. Sinus Infections
A tablespoon of 3% Hydrogen peroxide added to 1 cup of non-chlorinated water can be used as a nasal spray. Depending on the degree of sinus involvement, one will have to adjust the amount of peroxide used.

11. Mouthwash
Many people don’t realize that hydrogen peroxide makes a very effective and inexpensive mouthwash. Use 3% H202 – add a dash of liquid chlorophyll for flavoring if desired.
12. Toothpaste
Use baking soda and add enough 3% H202 to make a paste.
13. Toothbrush
Or, just dip your brush in 3% H202 and brush. Soak your toothbrush in Hydrogen peroxide to keep them free of germs.
14. Tooth Ache
Hydrogen peroxide is not a pain killer; however, as an anti-viral, antibacterial and anti-fungal agent, it is effective at treating the pathogen that is causing the infection. The following is from my own personal experience: My dentist wanted to give me a root canal some time ago as one tooth was inflamed and, in her opinion, would die. I felt some discomfort but told her that I would give it chance to heal. I rinsed with hydrogen peroxide (several times a day) as well ascoconut oil (once a day). The discomfort went away and I have had no further problems with the tooth.
15. Tooth Whitening
Having used 3% Hydrogen peroxide as a mouth wash for sometime ago, I am thrilled to note that my teeth have been beautifully and effortlessly whitened. I used to pay so much for professional whitening, those silly strips and uncomfortable trays. Live and learn.

NOTE: Do not swallow any peroxide. When the peroxide rinse is done, be sure to rinse out your mouth with water.

16. Hair Lightening
Peroxide is a bleaching agent and is used for lightened hair. Dilute 3% Hydrogen peroxide with water (50 / 50) and spray the solution on your wet hair after a shower and comb it through. You will not have the peroxide burnt blonde hair like the hair dye packages, but more natural highlights if your hair is a light brown, faddish, or dirty blonde. It also lightens gradually so it’s not a drastic change.
 
17. Contact Lenses
Hydrogen peroxide is used as a disinfectant in CIBA Vision’s Clear Care no rub contact lens cleaning solution, due to its ability to break down the proteins that build up on the lense from the eye’s immune response, resulting in increased comfort for those with sensitive eyes.

Sanitizing / Disinfectant / Cleaning

 

18. Straight or Diluted Hydrogen Perioxide
Clean your counters and table tops with hydrogen peroxide to kill germs and leave a fresh smell. Simply put a little on your dishrag when you wipe, or spray it on the counters. Use hydrogen peroxide to clean glass and mirrors with no smearing.
Keep a spray bottle of 3% (straight) to disinfect the interior of the refrigerator and kids’ school lunch boxes.
 
19. In the Dishwasher
Add 2 oz. of 3% Hydrogen peroxide to your regular washing formula.
Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of 3% Hydrogen peroxide and water and keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without harming your septic system like bleach or most other disinfectants will. After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour or spray hydrogen peroxide (and then vinegar) on it to kill salmonella and other bacteria.
I use peroxide to clean my mirrors with, there is no smearing.
Combination of vinegar and hydrogen peroxide make a cheap, effective and non-toxic disinfectant agent and is said to be more effective at killing pathogens than bleach.  As it is non-toxic, you can use it to disinfect fruits and vegetables, as well as pet toys, equipment and cages.  In tests run at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, pairing Vinegar and Hydrogen Peroxide mists, kills virtually all Salmonella, Shigella, or E. coli bacteria on heavily contaminated food and surfaces.
 
Directions
You need TWO spray bottles. DO NOT MIX the solutions together. Put straight vinegar in one and straight Hydrogen peroxide in the other spray bottle.
NOTE: Light destroys peroxide rather quickly. It’s best to leave it in its original bottle and screw in a spray head. DO NOT DILUTE THEM.
Remember for any sanitizer to work properly, the surface has to be clean before you use it.
When you want to sanitize a surface (vegetables, cutting board, counters, sink, cages, toys. toilets, floors, etc.), spray one (it doesn’t matter which one you use first) on the surface, then you spray on the other.  When they mix, for a brief time the chemical action of the two make a very powerful sanitizer.  You can rinse off the surface afterwards, if you want, but the result is non-toxic.
Fortunately it is cheap. BTW, we use it in the bathroom to sanitize the counters, toilets, floors, etc.
20. Mold
Clean with Hydrogen peroxide when your house becomes a biohazard after its invaded by toxic mold, such as those with water damage.
21. Humidifiers/Steamers
Use 1 pint 3% Hydrogen peroxide to 1 gallon of water.
22. Laundry / Stain Removing


 

Random Idea: Urgently Calling all Women in KUWAIT...!!



Days after hearing/ reading about kidnapping, rape, death and so on.. in various places in Kuwait all victims said are to be ASIAN or Filipino, Id been restless and sleepless, it’s disturbing and scary at some point…

And I guess, posting important stuff about preventions and awareness is not enough, there is something beyond I cannot understand internally deep within myself that I have to do something and I came up with a project—(Temporarily, and yah!!! I will call it as that at this point!)

I , waited for some time to finally share this because I know, It would not be an impact for anyone, I’m not famous first of all!! and I do not have the strong connections with anyone who can further assist me to establish what’s on my mind, however, I’m giving myself a chance and I will not be disappointed  if things goes out of conclusion…

Women Awareness Center in Kuwait,
this is open to all ladies in whatever race, religion or status as long as you're a women in KUWAIT 

The aim is to be the instrument of awareness for women  in anyway possible and to be a center for learning and assistance

Goal:

The goal is to provide the following:

-         Self Defense Skills

-         Preventive measures or gadgets

-         Awareness Training & Seminars

-         Fun and Friendship

Set-up

-         Registration ( ID)

-         Website Registration

-         To have a place for meeting and training

-         Conduct Seminars for newbies in Kuwait

-         Self-defense training

-         Access on the handy Gadgets

I’m open for help, assistance, suggestion and anything there is to share… after all, this is just an idea, if anyone  share the same belief that we needed something like this then let me hear you…!
Leave a comment or e-mail me: kassandrea21@gmail.com
Please, never, ever, give yourselves cause for regret by not ensuring your Wives or Daughters (and possibly Sons), are not able to defend them. One of the saddest expressions known to man is "Too Late", don't be one of the people saying this when it is!

I can’t imagine our home without a nanny and please don’t judge me, I’m just a regular mom who wants to help and give a better life for my kids, for sure, every family in Kuwait would testify how hard it is for a working couple to worked without a nanny

Legal nanny in Kuwait is almost impossible, it’s expensive, it’s a risk , it’s a headache , traumatic and most of the time it’s frustrating specially when we end up getting the “WRONG , CRAZY & the BAD ONE"
(you know.....) "it’s hard to explain", but people of same situation will have a clear picture of what I’m telling here..

So thankfully, a good article gives me a better understanding of what it’s like to be in their shoes… it’s a mind opener!

 Read on: 

click




Sometimes, it is very hard to understand “THEM” when our mindset is far from reality, we want everything to be perfect  and we just don't know where to stand, understand  and what to expect

Nanny plays an important part to my family and I will always be thankful that they are here to sacrifice and help us to live a better life…

Cheers to all the GOOD nannies in the world!!
Most especially to our very own Super DANG!!!

Personal Safety Gadgets for Women



It’s kinda disturbing looking at the numbers of violence, harassment, rape and the list goes on..  That involves women in Kuwait for the past weeks, there is no safe place for women but to learn how to defend and be aware of the environment

That is why I have gathered relevant handy safety gadgets for women, which I think, effective and very useful .....  


NO ONE wants to be the target of an assailant...and
NO ONE knows when they might be targeted.

Criminals work on the elements of surprise, speed and fear!
·                 Give criminals their own dose of surprise!
·                 Add crime-foiling time to their attempt at assault!
·                 Multiply their fear of detection and capture!
This conveniently small can emits an ear piercing shriek readily recognized as an emergency call for help. Its blast can be heard for blocks and will definitely alert everyone in the vicinity. Small enough to fit conveniently in purse or pocket - readily at hand for emergency use
Hopefully, you'll never be assaulted. With the Mace Screecher Aerosol Alarm, you'll be ready to alert help that it is needed




The Lightning Strike Personal Protection System produced by Brite-Strike is a simple and easy to use personal safety and protection system, developed by police officers for police officers.
Based on the usage of state-of-the-art LEDs, with electronic management, the 65 lumens of brilliant white light utilized by this tactical light will momentarily blind and disorient an attacker. This protection system also includes a 10db personal alarm, loud enough to scare off the attacker and alert others. To enable it, you have to pull the lanyard from the box and the pin activates the alarm. When the need for alarm is over, you can push the pin back in the box and the noise stops. It's small and rugged and it has a tough polymer coiled lanyard for attachment to a key ring or purse, making it easy to carry around with you.

The unique “Tactical Touch” end cap switch allows the user to switch from high to low blinding strobe settings, all with a light touch of a finger. The cut-away terminal end ensures easier access to the switch


Cell phone stun guns are great for women traveling alone, college students on campus after dark, or protection any time for everybody!

Remember, the purpose of this stun gun, and all other non-lethal self defense products, is to give you time to escape. Use the cellphone stun gun, then run like hell for safety.

Even the most prepared and savvy of women can fall prey to someone with bad intentions. In case of an emergency or if you are in need of personal protection a cell phone stun gun is a perfect solution.

Pepper Shot™ is a 10% pepper spray rated at 2 million scoville heat units and made with a very fine grain that is more effective than the coarser grains of most other pepper sprays.

In addition to causing an attacker pain, Pepper Shot swells the mucous membranes, which makes breathing difficult, and swells the veins in the eyes, causing the eyes to close. These effects last 20-30 minutes and cause no permanent damage. All sprays have locking actuators for extra safety.

As a woman, a mother and a friend I pray for each and every woman in Kuwait to be safe and well guarded, and I hope someday my dream of having a place called “WACK” (Women Awareness Center-Kuwait), which will facilitate and reach out to all the WOMEN
to be aware, to be trained, to be safe and to be equipped with preventive / safety measures


Here’s an effective  quote :
Please, never, ever, give yourselves cause for regret by not ensuring your Wives or Daughters (and possibly Sons), are not able to defend them. One of the saddest expressions known to man is "Too Late", don't be one of the people saying this when it is!
