Do It For Home and Country

Saving Up for Tom Ford Sunglasses

When travelling, it’s always great to have a pair of sunglasses handy. They aregreat at protecting your eyes from the glaring sun. The scorching heat could cause so much headache, one of the reasons why travellers do not enjoy their escapades that much.
Since I went back to university for another course I have not gone to trips abroad anymore but that can wait. I hope I could get a pair of those Tom Ford Sunglasses on my next trip. As to where that trip would be, I still don’t know. Meantime, I guess it’s wise to save up for it, right?
Do you have any suggestions as to where I would go next?

4 Reasons Demand for Physical Therapists Continues to Grow

Recent job projections in the United States show that the physical therapy field is expected to grow twice as fast as any other medical field. There are several social and medical reasons to back up this expectation. People are living longer, and medicine has made breakthroughs that allow people to survive illnesses or injuries that would have caused death just a decade ago. Physical therapists will be needed to help these survivors regain mobility after traumatic illnesses or injuries. Physical therapy schools are readying graduates, but demand still outpaces availability.
Aging Population Spurring Growth
The Baby Boomer generation is moving into their golden years, which means that the elderly population of the United States is growing exponentially. As people age, they become more susceptible to problems that could leave them immobilized. Since the number of seniors is growing, that means the number of people who could potentially need the services of a physical therapist is also growing. The Baby Boomers have only just begun to age into the elderly population. The largest number of Boomers is expected to reach senior citizen status in the next three to five years, which is why the demand for medical professionals is expected to skyrocket.
More People Recovering from Serious Injuries
Today's medical technology enables doctors to save the lives of people who would not have survived certain injuries in the past. These patients might have survived their injuries, but they usually need a great deal of physical therapy to help them recover. From amputees to the partially paralyzed, there is a growing need for physical therapists who can work with patients to help them learn how to function as fully as possible in their new circumstances. Physical therapy is on the cutting edge of prosthetic technology, and the recent wars have caused huge leaps in physical therapy techniques as more soldier amputees return home for treatment.
Treatment Improving for Chronic Illnesses
Medical advances are also increasing the quality of life for people whose illnesses would have left them in bed or wheelchairs for the rest of their lives. With the proper physical therapy, stroke victims and other people who have suffered traumatic illnesses can regain some of their former independence. As physical therapy techniques continue to improve in this area, more physical therapists will be needed to meet the demands of clinics and hospitals. Modern medicine is allowing people to live longer, which means that there is an increased potential of elderly people who might eventually need help with mobility.
Physical Therapists Needed in Several Settings
The wide range of physical therapist workplaces also contributes to the rise in demand for certified therapists. Physical therapists are needed in sports locker rooms, hospitals, clinics, and several more specialized treatment facilities. It is possible to focus on one particular form of physical therapy, like helping people regain motion in their hands after suffering from tendon damage. General therapists are also needed to work in larger medical clinics where several types of injuries are treated. Some physical therapists prefer to work with the elderly, while others prefer to work with children. As demand for therapists continue to rise, new therapists will enjoy the opportunity to specialize in the type of setting that they are the most interested in.


Women who are used to doing household chores or those who have blue collar jobs have a common frustration:  how to make their hands softer.  It would be embarrassing to shake hands with someone and suddenly realize that your hands are just so calloused compared to theirs. Of course calloused hands are indicators of soft hands, but at least there must be a way to make it a bit softer.

Here are some helpful tips to make your hands softer:

1. Apply lotion on your hands before you go to sleep at night.  The lotion doesn’t have to be expensive.
2.Put on a pair of gloves overnight. If you don’t have a pair, you could use socks.  The important thing is that your hands are covered throughout the night. 
3. Make a hands scrub with a tablespoon of sugar and some drops of lemon juice.  Gently scrub this on your hands.
4. You can massage your hands with a moisturizer if you want.

Every woman desires to have a shiny and manageable hair.  Nothing could be more irritating than those tangles, and the dry strands that make you wish you had a hair makeover everyday.  Well, there will always be bad hair days but why do you have to have one when you can have that shiny hair you have always wanted? 

Here are some helpful tips:

 1.  Use hot water when you shampoo.  This is good and relaxing for your hair.  It is noteworthy that it is not advisable for you to shampoo everyday, as it would damage your hair. 
 2.   Be sure that there is no excess shampoo when you rinse.
 3. Use cold water when you apply the conditioner. Use a comb to gently stroke your hair while putting on the conditioner.  Use a wide tooth comb for this.
 4. See to it that you rinse your hair well.
       5.Refrain from blow drying your hair everyday.  It could make your hair dry and frizzy.


Summer would be here before we know it.  For now the swimsuits have to be kept as sweaters and jackets are in for the cold weather.  But who does not love summer?  For girls who are so dying to wear their swimsuits, these tips should be helpful in shaving your legs.

First of all, shaving is considered to be an art or a skill.  Not everyone can do it properly. 

 Here are some helpful tips:
1.        Invest in a good razor. Good quality razors may be a little bit more expensive but they sure are worth it.  It is better to buy them rather than those cheap ones which can only be used at least twice.
2.       Get a good shaving gel or cream. If you are not careful, you could end up having cuts which could even lead to infections.  If you don’t have one, shampoo and conditioner would serve the purpose just as well.
3.       Moisturize.  Apply lotion or moisturizing cream to avoid your legs from cracking.

         Wear those swimsuits with confidence—and don’t forget to enjoy the summer heat!

Saving up for the rainy days!

It’s rainy season once again. But I guess the idiom “saving up for the rainy days” does not apply to literal rain. Rain or shine, it would always be best to save up.
If you live in the city like me, it would be hard to say “no” to some little expenses here and there that would keep you from saving money. Sharing with you some tips which I myself am learning to follow every day:
1. Define “needs” and “wants”. A car may be a need for most people nowadays. But what kind of car? Some would opt for the latest model and the most expensive one. What for? Ok, you have solved the “need” part but why does it have to be that expensive? This is where the “wants” come in.
2. Avoid having those purchases on things that you just find “cute” but you never really use. I have lots of those. Cute cellphone pouches. Just how many cellphone pouches do I have? How many do I really need? Sandals. How many pairs do I really need? Same thing goes for little hair clips, cute little baskets that would just be left unused in the corner of our closets at the end of the day.
I am not an expert in saving up yet, and I am sure it would take lots of discipline to do so. But the thought of saving up for the rainy days inspire me to go on—because in life, “rainy days” can come anytime—especially when we least expect them!

Being a Hostess

        I am currently studying Hotel and Restaurant management, a course I have always wanted.  Many people ask me if I would like to have my own business someday—like a owning a hotel or restaurant? Sure!  But of course that would require so much capitalization so working would be another option.  

        There are actually lots of openings abroad for Host/Hostess Jobs.  These jobs really require skill because you have to deal with costumers while waiting for their orders, or act as ushers/entertainers as costumers enter the restaurant or hotel, or make sure they are satisfied with the food and services as they go.

Every Child Deserves to Smile

All over the world children are born with facial deformities that make it impossible to smile, eat and socialize. Despite these tragedies happening everywhere, it is often the case they occur in third world, poverty stricken areas, and these children and their families cannot afford the surgeries needed to survive. This is where Operation Smile comes in. This upstanding organization has been helping children around the world since 1982, and in that time has provided over 200,000 free surgeries. However, without the loyal support of volunteers and donations this charity would be unable to grow and continue to help. In addition to medical volunteers, Operation Smile is also helped by civilian volunteers, but despite volunteer efforts the organization still needs an income. That is where you come in, and you don’t even have to donate a dime. All you have to do is rent your textbooks for next semester, and CampusBookRentals.com will donate a portion of the proceeds to Operation Smile. 
There is really no downside to renting your books. It is fast, easy and best of all convenient. No longer do you need to fight the crowds at the bookstore only to not get the books you need. Additionally, who can really afford those bookstore prices? Not most college students that’s for sure. When you rent from Campus Book Rentals you will enjoy free shipping, a 30 day trial period and flexible rental dates. 
Not only does every child deserve to smile, but you also deserve to save money on textbooks. 


Almost everything necessary in life could be done online these days: shopping, banking, and even connecting with long lost friends!  Who would ever expect that we could find our high school buddies online again after many years of not getting in touch with them?  Yes, you could say those are the wonders of technology—and we continue to be surprised everytime!
Who would ever think that even playing bingo would be done online these days?  Sure you would be missing your old playing buddies in the same bingo hall you go to everytime, but there are actually more reasons why people prefer to play online bingo games.
For one, you could play at your own schedule, and choose people to play with.  And the best part? You won’t have to play with the same old people you have been playing with for years!  You could actually play with players from across the globe!  So it would be a good way to make new buddies,eh?  You bet!
According to a study conducted among bingo players, the busy schedule of people these days is the main reason why  online bingo has become so popular.  Come to think of it, they don’t have to hire a nanny to watch over their kids when they have to go out and play the game somewhere!  On top of that, they don’t have to be accused of being away all the time, leaving their families behind for a couple of hours in a day.
Online bingo also offers players some interesting freebies, plus the opportunity to make friends online through chat.  Mind you, not just a hundred of new friends, but thousands! There is no way you could meet and play with that many people when you do the traditional way of playing bingo.
This is still the same bingo game that has been played by people over the years, but with the advent of the internet and technology, it has become twice as fun!
