Serum’s Wonder

A great Vitamin C serum for face is an unbelievable tool. I have put in a lot of thought about this… So, in my opinion, I guess my thesis is that the people in the world have always been insecure about the physical effects of aging on their face and skin. Yes I don’t think that that is a groundbreaking claim, but I do think that it is something that a lot of people deny when it personally applies to them. Especially men. But what I’m saying is that this Serum is something that can actually be a natural and organic and yet scientifically to FDA approved way of dealing with your aging issues and there’s not very many ways to do that in the world that are so organic and healthy. Yes, so, I think that this is literally steal of a deal. When I think of all the other things I could spend $20 on, I mean really, if this means having two and a half less beers on a monthly basis because I want to feel better about my skin by using the serum, and that’s how I choose to offset the cost, that is a huge game for me. And, let me say, that I’m somebody who absolutely love is beer, and if push come to shove I would probably remove something else from my life before those two and a half beers, but if it was a choice between the vitamin C serum to totally rejuvenate my face and Revitalize my existence, or those two and a half beers over a month, I would choose the vitamin C serum literally seven times 07, 100% of the time no questions asked, I well maybe one question asked, but honestly, to be exact exact, this is the best thing that I could ever have on my face, it makes such a difference, and it started to make a difference almost immediately.

 

 

Amazon Prime Canada and why it is making waves

Amazon Prime Canada makes a lot of sense, by the way. Back in 2016, for example, people are very very upset that Americans had Prime video services, and Canadians did not. They saw that within the Amazon Prime membership, Americans were getting access to this netflix-like streaming service, which streams a lot of great classic films and movies, but also streams original content that is very well-reviewed and highly regarded in the world of media. So, obviously, Americans were getting something more than Canadians, and not paying that much more, and this was obviously upsetting a lot of people here in Canada, and even creating a very negative stigma about Amazon Prime Canada which still has not been completely shook. For example, some people are very annoyed that Amazon Prime Canada does not always guarantee same-day delivery, because people the United States often get what they order in less than two hours. Well, this is mostly a true conception, but is also a misconception, because many areas of the United States offer deals more similar to Canada, work shipping is free within two days as a guarantee, but can’t always be done on the same day or even the next day, just due to the population density of an area, and the level of Amazon infrastructure in that region.

Camera Filter Technology

So, anyway, I really appreciated using the camera filter technology and posting my photos, I don’t know if anyone’s ever going to buy them, but I think that it’s a cool exercise none-the-less. Generally, I think this is a really cool we’ll start up, and I think that is really cool that we are moving in a direction that allows people to do this kind of thing. I really like these apps. I like to use camera filters all the time, and I think that it’s really cool to go to make some money off of the photos that I’m doing, even if I don’t make a lot, it’s nice to know that they’re on the table. A lot of times, amateur photography like this ends up making a major Splash. I’ve had friends who are photographers who just take some shot and a cell phone, and it ends up being more famous or popular than a lot of the things they’ve worked their whole career to make. Now, you can also chalk that up to the experience they’ve gained over their career, but you can also say that it’s not about the equipment. I mean, to an extent, it is about the equipment, but it is I guess less about the appointment than it is about the person handling it, in my opinion, and in the opinion of a lot of good people that I know. I do think that this type of technology is moving things in a roller cold Direction and I’m super excited to see where it’s going. You know, I think that camera filter technology is going to have a huge benefit for society in a lot of ways.

Wonders of modern science

 

Typically, I’m the type of person who does not believe in something unless there is hard evidence, and if there is hard evidence behind it, I will totally believe in it. I believe in climate change, I do not believe that vaccines do bad things to you, and I do believe in the fact that we evolved from monkeys Once Upon a Time. However, I do think that there are certain things that will be explained by science in the future, that we just don’t have the technology to right now. And I do believe that a lot of this is because a lot of the advancements that have yet to be confirmed in science or things that would not work in the best interest of major corporations in the Western World. What am I talking about? I know I probably sound like some kind of lunatic or conspiracy theorist, but all I’m trying to say is that people have found ways of healing and recovering from illnesses that have not been accepted by scientists, and that are actually aggressively shot down by the scientific community. So, very few businesses can make a living or make a significant profit from using these proven methods that have helped so many people, because they are constantly shut down by modern science, and by aggressive attempts at silencing these movements within Humanity. Still, I know that there are a lot of people wondering about what to get someone as Breast cancer gifts.

How We Organized Our BBQ party

 

We have our lovely country house near the sea. Last year we upgraded our second home with new furniture, but still we didn’t like them. I wanted to change the design completely. You know, sometimes it can happen to every woman and we have a big desire to throw away old things and replace them with new ones. I guess, this is also the effect of spring, because we’ve just woken from the long winter sleep. Moreover, some of our chairs were broken. Anyway, we had to look for new ones. They expected to be modern and comfortable. We simply entered “The most fashionable furniture of 2017 year” to a Google and came across Adirondack Chair. That was the easiest way and we usually buy things from the Internet.  It seems to me that time is precious I don’t want to spend it in the shop. This is ridiculous.  If I don’t like the product I can send it back.

Anyway, they are really amazing and there are different types of these chairs. Everyone is able to find something for his own taste, because they are presented in different colors, sizes, materials. You can also observe different prices from 50-400$. It depends for which purposes you buy these chairs and, of course, how rich you are. As we don’t have problems with money and we planned to make our country house the best place, we decided to buy POLYWOOD South Beach model. Just look how beautiful they are! I can’t catch my eyes from them.  They honestly declare “you get what you pay for”. I completely satisfied with the quality. I haven’t noticed any problem with them. I am sure it will remain the same even after years of using. The style is so nice, so that I will never get bored, I don’t want to change them anymore. How wonderful! I just simply changed my design with those chairs. I even didn’t want to buy something else, except flowers and food.

The menu was varied. I prepared well for this special event in order to surprise my friends. They know I am not good in cooking, but I hiddenly joined the course, so now I am like a professional chef. I want to point out tossed salad, sandwiches from the grill, BBQ ribs and grilled veggies. Finally, they liked my dishes and said it was extremely delicious.

This evening was marvelous. I got many compliments from my friends. The excellent food and new chairs definitely made our party pleasurable. I was so happy!

Please tell me, how you prepare for BBQ party? Do you want to buy the same chairs for your home?

How to Monitor Baby’s Movement 

Being a mother is a tough

Whether you are a mom or not you should definitely understand me. Have you ever faced with the problem of being in two places simultaneously? Probably “YES” if you have a little baby. It’s not an easy task to control everything around. And don’t think that I am lazy or whatever. I love my baby and I care too much about her. I just want to make it a little bit easier for me. I got very nervous every time, when I leave her and go to the kitchen in order to prepare some food.

This week’s research has inspired me to write a simple comment of using a Comfort Cam. After struggling for the whole month, I suddenly understood that I must find a way. But how can I make it? I thought that, maybe, I should find a babysitter? Fortunately, I kept this consideration on hold and found an alternative way. Well, how is that happening? I came across the advert from a social media, which linked me to the right website. To my surprise, it was exactly the thing I was looking for with a very price. I ordered it and after now I am able to monitor a baby by myself! Only imagine, I monitor my baby with the app using the Wifi. I am not good in technology at all, but even for me it wasn’t so difficult. Now you can simply set up this magic cam and get the video as well as photos right on the screen. All you need is to just download and a specific app and have a wireless connection in your house. Sounds good, isn’t it? I don’t need to worry anymore and this is great that I can stop nervous about the safety of my child for a while. My friends usually ask me “How is that possible?” and I reply, “With the growing of modern technology it became a reality”. Moreover, there are many other electronic devices that are able to make your life happier, but for now I would like to focus on this excellent device.

I Can Speak with her being anywhere

I don’t want to write about the detailed instructions, because it’s really easy to get used to it – nothing is complicated. I’d rather tell you more about the functionality. I guess, I should point out the other important function of this camera, it is the night vision. I can check what she is doing at night with the help of it. I can speak with her being far and hear her sweet voice. Oh, how I love it! With a comfort cam I feel that I am always with my daughter, and I know that my girl feels the same. Time is flying, she is growing. Day by day I admire the way how my baby is changing and my camera records every single moment of her wonderful life.

“Necessity is the mother of invention”

This is really great that people invented such a wonderful thing! When I am far and see that my baby is playing and smiling, I feel myself as the happiest woman on this earth! It allows me to feel myself more relaxed and enjoy the atmosphere, even when I am far from her. This means that I can plan my daily routine in A more productive and convenient way.
Finally, no one can deny that camera makes your life happier and safer. I am more confident and I don’t afraid to leave her alone in the room, because I know that I will be able to monitor her with the help of the app on my mobile phone. And if she cries I will quickly come and hug her.
It’s worth every penny! This stuff works very well and it never lets me down. I am planning to use this helpful camera in the future!

Three Reasons Why I Love Unu Motors

I usually post things I love. If you are an avid reader of this blog, you’ll get to check how I usually post reviews like food, restaurants, cafes, book, movies, and ever television series I love. For this post, I would like to share with you how I love Unu Motors and why I think you should too.

Unu Motors is a company in The Netherlands which specializes in electric scooters or the ‘elektrische scooter.’ I was there for six months and all my transportation, from one place to another, is through their electric scooters. It made me love this kind of transportation and I think every people should try using it too. Here my reasons!

  1. Driven by Electricity

Ever heard of a transport vehicle powered by electricity? Unu Motors has got you covered. It is amazing how a company is driven by their advocacy to save mother earth. This is their way of giving back, of being an earth friendly company and I think people should be aware and support these kinds of company. Unu Motors really make a great impact to the community.

  1. Portable Battery for Convenience

What is amazing about this is that when you our purchased an electric scooter, you are given a portable battery which you can bring just about anywhere! How cool is that! This means you no longer have to go back to your house to charge or change battery because you can actually bring it anytime. So anytime your battery runs out, I think this is a nice way to save time, resources, and money too!

  1. Customer Care and Delivery at its Best

You can actually shop online with unu motors unlike other shops where you need to be physically in their stores for you to purchase one. The thing is, this is the best option for people. Let me also add that their customer service representatives are all trained well. They attend to a lot of my concerns and I commend them for that.

Planning on Taking Real Estate Marketing

I have always looked up to people who pursue their dreams, even it might take a long time. It can be months, years, a decade perhaps, but if they have they volition to chase them, it will come true.

For the past days I am thinking of pursuing a career I have been interested into for quite some time now. You see my uncle is into sales and marketing. I also have a friend who made business selling things and having large profits. She is living the dream while returning home with enough money for her three kids. Not that I am for things that will bring bigger bucks, it’s just that I am inspired to pursue dreams I think I wouldn’t able to reach.

For the past months, I have been researching about marketing, especially real estate marketing. I have taken up a degree on marketing. I also had an internship in a publishing company where I served as a digital marketer for four years. What I did their is to conduct pocket events for shareholders and the media. I mostly enjoyed dealing with people in the media. They made me feel really alive. They are witty, intelligent, has a lot of various experiences doing coverage’s, and ever fun to be with. I have organized small events, focus group discussion about several brands I am handling, as well as talk to different seminars as well as schools and organizations about my products. I was glad I was able to fulfil all these, while meeting a lot of people along the way.

I have stopped working for months, because I need to make my priorities straight again after a bad fall. A couple of months I backpacked around Southeast Asia—Bangkok, Myanmar, and Laos. And while I enjoyed being a digital nomad, meeting people, learning culture and going from one place to another, I realized I need to go home, and build the path where my heart lies. I have learned many lessons while travelling, and I know deep in my heart I need to take my career on a notch higher.

I am going back to marketing. This time, I will be focusing on real estate marketing as a Vancouver realtor. While I have been armed with four years of being in the field, not to mention the years I had in college, I will still take short courses about it to firmly grasp the industry. Why real estate? I love homes. I love helping people find their homes. I want to help them look for the place where they can start their family, build their business, and find themselves. Whether is a townhouse, an establishment, or a building, I want to help people grow. And I know marketing is not just about direct selling a product or a business. It also gives hope as well as positivity into one’s life. I thank my family and friends who vowed their support when I announced this decision to them two days ago when we had our dinner. I am excited to uncover a new chapter in my life. Wish me luck!

Hubby Gifts!


So it is time to shop for my hubby’s gift. It is always fun and stressful at the same time. I love shopping, obviously, but when it is for somebody you really truly care about it becomes much more difficult. I usually go to a website like Survival cooking and do a lot of research about all the different new cooking and grilling tools and end up buying him something like that. However, I have been thinking about buying a watch. There are a lot of great choices, so I looked for the best watches under 500 that are available and I think that he would appreciate having a classy accessory like that. He is a bit of a classic, old-fashioned man, but I don’t think that his blue collar will keep him from wanting to look nice every now and then. Every now and then he seems to eye up something nice, like a watch, but he would never spend his own money on something like that. As a woman, I know that means that it would make a PERFECT gift. The “perfect gift” might be a hard thing to expect or to find, but I do believe that this year it is a really nice watch. I have a lot of faith in this idea, and I think he is going to be thrilled with the result that comes out of my great idea for him.

I’m still here….

Finally, on a day I’m at home with yet another allergic reaction to some unknown trigger, I’m able to do some writing. Finally. I’ve been wanting to write so bad over these past couple of months. Unfortunately, my life and my whole world as I knew it changed about 6 months ago.

You see, on March 6, 2014, I became a victim of infidelity. My husband came home that evening and dropped a bombshell on me. He told me had been having an affair, fell in love with the whore (can I say that? Yes, it’s MY blog and it IS the truth – it’s not me just being jealous or petty because believe me, I could NEVER be jealous of someone like HER), and, no, he didn’t want to fix the marriage. Then he packed a bag and left. That’s it. My whole world shattered that evening. I was left sitting in shock, disbelief, anger, and confusion.

That very same morning I received an email that my blog had been nominated for one of the top 10 Food Blogs for 2014. I was so, so happy!!! Finally my blog was heading in the direction I had been working hard on getting it to!! I was dancing. I was happy. I was screaming with excitement!! I was so happy that morning. Little did I know my world was actually falling apart around me at that moment and I didn’t even know it. (You can read my post that I had started writing that afternoon here: I’ve Been Nominated!).

Crazy how in just one day, a person can go to being on top of the world to being utterly lost and scared to death of life. I had been married once before and that marriage also ended because of infidelity. That one was hard for me to deal with as I instantly became a single mother with a young child. However, that first marriage was a very short one and I had already been on my own for almost a year so I healed faster in terms of being able to function on a daily basis. That trust that was broken by my “first love” caused me to be on my own for almost ten years. It took that long before I felt ready enough to try to trust and love again.

So fast forward another 11 years and I was so very happily married to my best friend and soul mate. Or so I thought. He never told me why. He never told me what was wrong. I never knew “we” were having issues. Still to this day, I don’t know what happened. He just walked out the door.

After being together almost 11 years, I had allowed myself to become totally dependent on him. He was the main bread winner and my income was just supplementing his. Everything we had was in his name alone. I blindly gave him all my delicate trust when I fell deeply in love with him. I never once thought twice about any of that because I honestly never thought that he wasn’t my forever. I just saw us growing old together, enjoying some grandkids, and spending our golden years reminiscing about that crazy but wonderful life we had spent together. We had some pretty amazing memories from those first 10 years together – I never thought it would just end.

But it did. He just walked out that door. He walked away from everything. I was left sitting here surrounded by our memories and his stuff. To say I was blindsided is putting it mildly. Not only was I left sitting in shock, hurt, disbelief – oh so many emotions – I was consumed with fear. I had no idea how on earth I was going to take care of myself financially. I didn’t know how I was going to go to work in the morning and put on a smile for my kiddos at school. I didn’t know if I could even look at anyone in the eye because I was afraid they’d see whatever it is that’s wrong with me that would cause my husband to just walk away.

My best friend became ice water in the first couple of weeks after that. I tried to eat but it was so hard. I couldn’t sleep much, but when I did sleep, I developed night terrors. I became afraid to go to sleep because of the nightmares and then I would be afraid to wake up because my living nightmare would become real once again.

Thank God for the internet!!! I don’t think I would have made it through those first weeks and months if it hadn’t have been for my friends and family. Being in touch with so many via chat and messages truly helped me keep my sanity. I also found an online support group who really keep me grounded when I need to be. One of the things he said to me that night he destroyed my heart was: “you’re strong and can handle this”. Really??? Say that while you’re slowly turning a knife in my heart??

Now, six long months later, I can say Damn Right!!! I AM strong enough to handle this!!! I do still have nightmares at times, I still suffer from anxiety attacks, I still have down days, I still cry from time to time, and I still wonder what happened, but I AM moving on. I am functioning. I have accepted what has happened and that, subsequently, I’ve been diagnosed with PTSD which I need to be medicated for. I’m still not at complete peace with it though. I still can’t forgive. That may take years, but you know what?? I will be okay. I did nothing wrong to deserve what happened and the position I was left in.

I now work a variety of jobs trying to earn what I need to in order to be self sufficient again. I still have my “lunch lady” job and I also took on the challenge of opening a brand new restaurant as their kitchen manager. Between those two and a couple of other jobs I do, I barely have time to myself anymore. Phew!!!

A lot of things died in me the night he left, including my enjoyment of making my decoupaged plates. I was in the middle of an order at that time and just cannot bring myself to finish it. I have to pay the money back for that order…. I truly didn’t know what, if anything, I’d ever find joy in again. Luckily, my passion for writing and food carries on!

I will be making changes to my blog in the near future and removing “Scott’s Spot”. I won’t remove all the stories that he’s a part of because one day, I’ll be okay with reading them and remembering that we did have a good marriage and relationship. That it really wasn’t a decade of wasted years. I’d really like to believe that.

I have so many new things to share on here! Working in a restaurant is amazing!!!! I have new recipes, school stories, and a whole bunch of other stories I’m itching to share! I hope to get to a point within all this new “busyness” that I can write more often. However, for today, I just wanted to share what is behind my quietness here on That Crafty Lunch Lady.

I am still here and I’m still cooking! Oh, and in case you’re wondering – That Crafty Lunch Lady did make the top 10 Food Blogs for 2014 AND my blog is now also featured on TheBesty – a website that helps you discover the best restaurants and dishes in your city and when you travel based on input from bloggers. Woo Hoo!!  (Stop by my page on TheBesty and follow me!)
