Best Solution for Chap Lips

Leave a comment Standard

Are you currently suffering from chap lips? Have you ever suffered from it?

I consider lip care to be one of the most important one.

I’ve gone through different brands; however, I found one that works the best in any occasion.

#5 : Maybelline’s Babylips

Maybelline’s Babylips is another lip care/styling product people enjoy. For me personally, this product works on and off. Sometimes it makes my lips chapped rather than helping it. This should be used as more of a lip tint than a moisturizing lip care solution.

#4 : EOS Lip Balm

EOS lip balms are very cute and has a very unique design that sets itself from apart from it’s competitors. However, the first waxiness from the initial use after removing the packaging. So it has repelled a lot of people because of that.

#2 : Burt’s Bees Chap Stick

Burt’s Bees is another lip care product a lot of people look towards. There are various variations out on the shelves; however, the original works best.

#1 : Carmex Chapstick

From all of my years of using lip care products, this one has been the best and most helpful. It kept my lips from ripping and bleeding throughout my time in the military as well. It may not have the best taste, fragrance, and packaging, but the outcome and effects of the product is the real deal.

Which lip care product do you enjoy using on a day to day basis?

Why Fitbit?

One of the healthy, technology trends on the market are wearable fitness technology. There are various different styles and brands out there trying to make big bucks. One of the most well known fitness technology producer is Fitbit.

line-up

Fitbit has been producing for years since taking off in San Francisco, California.

These are the product line up:

  • Fitbit One
  • Fitbit Zip
  • Fitbit Flex 2
  • Fitbit Alta 2
  • Fitbit Charge 2
  • Fitbit Surge
  • Fitbit Blaze 2

These are activity trackers, wireless-enabled wearable technology devices. Their capabilities include:

  • Tracking number of steps walked
  • Monitoring heart rate
  • Tracking quality of sleep
  • Counting steps climbed

Countless people favor and enjoy wearing these stylish, yet essential fitness watches on a daily basis. Whether you have the old version or the latest in stock, these devices were made for one purpose, to help track our fitness/health goals.

These are very well developed and initiated goals. Fitbit has built so much fandom and respect from over millions of users over the world. However, there is one thing Fitbit really needs to step up.

As much as these products are stylish and efficient, they are not waterproof yet.

It’s sort of funny how a product made and developed for years for the purpose for working out and being a fitness partner, is still limited to just dust-and-water-resistance.

What’s more funny is that imitations of Fitbit products that are way less expensive and uglier than the original is waterproof.

Apple’s 2nd generation of apple watches came out with waterproof capability. Before Fitbit.

Technically, there is only one Fitbit product that is waterproof–Fitbit Flex 2. However, one negative aspect of the Fitbit Flex 2 is that it doesn’t tell time. It’s a unique product that is versatile in various ways you can wear it, but it’s sad how that’s the only Fitbit product that is waterproof as of right now.

My question is “Why not already?”

What is Fitbit waiting for?

I love Fitbit products and I would love to invest my money on one of them, but before that happens I would like to see waterproof versions emerge sometime in the near future.

How cool would it be to be able to swim and shower with your Fitbit Charge or Fitbit Blaze?

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one anticipating this new feature in the next line of Fitbit products. I really hope they do it soon.

 

I’m excited, Are you?

As the world is advancing rapidly, the need for our phones to stay alive is crucial. Even little elementary kids these days go around their school campus with a smartphone of their own.

Have you noticed how everyone is waiting in line with their eyes glued to their phone? Or seen a little kid focused on a smartphone or any technology device as if their life depends on it?

This is how much technology has been integrated into our lives.

How do I keep my phone alive throughout the day without any worry?

The solution is simple : Portable charger

Portable chargers are products that enables us to charge our phones or any electric device without being locked down to a wall plug. These started coming out in very simple design like the ones above.

Nowadays, these come in very adorable and cute design. Some are very creative and some even ridiculous.

These are very cute indeed. Now these have become some-what of a fashion statement as well.

I personally carry my portable charger around in my bag and charge my phone whenever needed.

Advices

mAh stands for “milliamp Hour” and is a unit for measuring electric power over time. The higher the mAh, the longer the battery will last. Likewise, it is important to check the mAh capacity of the portable charger and your phone before making your purchase.

Your goal is to purchase a portable charger that has more mAh than your phone.

Here are some mAh information for the latest phones out on the market:
iPhone 7 : 1,960 mAh
iPhone 7 Plus : 2,900 mAh
iPhone 6s : 1,715 mAh
iPhone 6 Plus : 2,750 mAh

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge : 3,600 mAh
Google Nexus 6P : 3,450 mAh
Google Nexus 5X : 2,700 mAh
LG G3 : 3,000 mAh

Chargers that look long and skinny like this typically have mAh around 3350.

Chargers that are bigger and typically looks like this typically have about 10000+ mAh.

I personally have a charger with 10000mAh. It can charge my phone throughout the week with no problem. After fully charging it, it can last forever. From all the portable chargers I’ve used, chargers will high mAh (10000+) work the best!

I recommend in investing in a portable charger. It will definitely save you!

Water Bottle Trend

Leave a comment Standard

Have you noticed various variation of water bottle designs all over the market?

Why is that?

It’s because water bottle is a item many people carry around for essential purposes. A water bottle is no longer simply a container for holding water, but also part of a fashion.

My requirements for my water bottle would be:

  • Fashionable
  • Leak-proof
  • Sturdy
  • Easy to carry around
  • Thermal (optional)

While studying or just walking around, cute and fashionable water bottles have become the norm.

There are so many different kinds that you can probably find a water bottle that will fit your needs to a T. If not, you can even customize your own as well.

This has been an ongoing trend for awhile, now a new trend has been on the rise:

“Portable juicer”

For me personally, ever since seeing Apollobox promoting a portable juicer cup all over social media, different variations have been popping up all over the place.

In fact, some look exactly the same!

Like these three… Don’t they look exactly the same except the logo imprinted on it? Yup! Their prices aren’t exactly the same, but around similar range. But it’s funny how one sells better than the other.

As for me, I personally have the one of the right with Z on it. The reason for choosing that particular one was because it had more positive customer reviews on amazon.com.

These little juicer cups are easy to clean and use. I personally like how I can juice it right before drinking it. I used to only drink freshly blended juices at home, because if you take it with you, the components of the juice would separate. This juicer make it possible to drink freshly juiced nutritious drink on the spot.

I believe this would help promote healthy drinking habits, coloring things up with various fruits and vegetables.

Sandwich Promotion

Is it just me or has anyone seen a recent rise in features of Subway in korean dramas lately?

Subway has a special place in my heart. It’s a sandwich home that I visited quite often because it was so close to home. I still remember me, as an elementary student,  happily munching on my 6″ sweet onion chicken sandwich, while waiting for my mom to come home.

Seeing just the logo appear in the dramas I watch sort of caught me off guard. It was quite a nice feeling to have.

These are some pictures from the ongoing, hot drama, Goblin-The Lonely and Great God.

It also came out in The K2.

I just wanted to write about this because, it was very, personally eye-catching and sort of funny in a way.

The sandwich shop that I loved so much being featured in the dramas I enjoy was very nice to see.

New Years

Just taking a few moments of my life to reflect on my past year.

151214-newyear2016-stock

1. What did you learn about yourself this past year?

With faith and trust, I can do anything.

2. Which relationship(s) meant the most to you this past year and why?

  • Rock Climbing + Church brothers and sisters. They are my inspiration, encouragement, and role models. They are the kind of people I want to be when I grow up.
  • Battles: I will never forget the moments I shared with my army battles. It was hard back then, but it makes me smile and feel proud now.

3. What was one of the biggest challenges you faced this past year and how did you handle it?

I would have to say basic combat training. It made me come out of my comfort zone and do things I never thought I would be able to do.

  • Shoot a gun
  • Crawl under fire
  • Gas chamber
  • Smoked – since my last name is Ham, it became ‘smoked ham.’
  • Bacon – got a nickname ‘bacon.’

4. What was one of your proudest moments?

  • Successfully completing basic training

5. What was one of the most meaningful compliments? Why?

Someone told me this recently,
“You have a gift and you need to share it with the world.”

6. What did you do for fun? Favorite memories?

I rock climb for fun. It’s the best thing when you’re stressed and want to rest your mind on something else.

My favorite memory has to be when I saw the MEDVAC helicopter take off to rescue soldiers. Just watching the helicopter take off with the  medics was amazing!

7. If you could change one thing from this year what would you change? Why?

There were moments when I wanted to take back the decisions I made and things I’ve done; however, now that I look back, I don’t want to change anything. Without the mistakes I’ve made and things I’ve done, I wouldn’t have learned and experienced everything I have today.

8. What was the most meaningful thing someone did for you? You did for someone else?

  • I met someone, who helped me open up more and help me be the person I am today.
  • I think all I did was listen to my brothers + sister’s concerns

9. Brag about 1 of the compliments? Which + why?

One of the sergeants during my AIT Phase 1 site told me that I was always so bright and smiley. My bright attitude makes them smile and looks good.

It was a very unexpected and it made me realize that I had that kind of effect.

10. What is the best advice you could give yourself for next year?

“Have faith and go for it!”
