Relax And Consult Your Derma

I’d understand if you’ll be telling me that the you’re getting tired and disappointed of using these acne products you’ve got. Sister, relax and never give up. It’s normal and you can’t do anything about it but to keep on trying and consult everything to your dermatologist. There are several acne treatments available but you should ask your derma for more infos. I can’t recommend you anything because our cases are completely different but I’ll tell you, stress is the number 1 reason of pimples.

What Olympic Sport Are You?

You Are Gymnastics

You are agile, expressive, and precise.

You have the drive to practice until you get something perfectly right.

And you have the confidence to perform difficult moves when under pressure.

Since Beijing Olympics is in at this season, I thought of grabbing this quiz. FYI, I was an athlete when I was in highschool and the energy and power I've got at that time is completely different to the one I have now. I'm less active now and I'm already tired when I jog for 5 minutes already.

Wednesday Weirdness #16

1. Is there anything hanging from your vehicle's rear view mirror?
- yes, a car freshener

2. When you go into the bathroom, do you ever check behind the shower curtain? You know, to make sure no one is miraculously hiding back there.
- no. I don't do it coz I usually take my shower at around 11 in the morning and at that time, hubby is already at work.

3. At what age did your mom or dad give you "the talk" about sex?
- ha? lolz

4. If you could add anything at all to an airplane to make trips more interesting, what would it be and why?
- hmmm it will be more interesting for me if I'll have my own bedroom inside the plane lolz. For sure that will make my trips more interesting but I know it's impossible to happen ^-^

5. What is one thing you and your significant other can never seem to agree on?
- Digital camera and lenses

6. Have you ever walked in on someone else having sex? How did you and the people involved react?
- nope. Never experience that

7. Everyone hears discussions that they consider boring. What is one topic that can put you to sleep quicker than any other?
- I guess a situation wherein the person I'm with does the entire talking and proudly tells me that he/she has this and that and I don't have the right to talk. That will be very boring for me for sure

Coffee Break

Am I a coffee lover? Hmmm, not really. I can only accommodate either a cup of brewed coffee or a medium-sized glass of frap but I prefer fraps honestly. I love fraps very much but the sad part is that it’s only available in McDo (in my area). I miss Starbucks honestly but we don’t have one here in Bordeaux. The last time I went in Paris, my eyes sparkled like stars when I instantly saw this Starbucks chain there.

Going out and drinking for a cup of coffee is part of the french daily lives. Yes, coffee is always present in every after meal and Armagnac won’t be complete without it. Frenchies have their own coffee maker and Keurig K-Cups too. See? They love good things in life and in everything. Frankly speaking, I like how they enjoy their life and socialize their peers. I like the idea of inviting somebody like a friend for a drink in one of the good cafés at the center but my friends are always busy. It’s either they’re working or they’re at school.

Speaking about Keurig K-Cups, there’s an interesting offer online at There’s this free shipping for 6 or more boxes or you only pay $10.49 per box for 10 or more boxes.

Time For A Change

It has been months since the last time I really segregated our trash here at home. It may sound funny but it is absolutely true. Mostly of the time, I am too lazy or let’s just say that I don’t pay too much attention on my actions. I just throw and place all our trash in one plastic bag and it’s not good at all. Hubby friends are different and I adore them for being so respectful towards mother nature. Believe it or not but they have separate trash compactor bags for plastics, for bottles, for organic things and for bulbs and batteries. Even here at the neighborhood, people are doing it except me I think. I hope I’m not the only one who has this bad character but it’s never too late yet for a change. Am I right? Tomorrow will be the start of the Anna Marie’s new beginning. I’ll be purchasing different boxes and will start segregating our trashes. I want my kids to respect our nature, to be respectful in anything and for them to do that, they have to see that attitude and character from me. I have to set myself as a rule model and act as a responsible adult.

Watch Out!

I am surprised that this blog is PR 2 still. Why am I surprised? First, this blog doesn’t have much visitors compared to my 2 other blogs and second, it’s pretty obvious that there are more sponsored posts here and yet, google retain my PR. I am thankful of course that I still have my PR here but it’s just pretty confusing how PR is computed. Anyway, wanna thank my constant readers here for dropping by my blog(s) all the time. I owe you guys many things and soon, I’ll be paying you back by having my own contest here. Probably, I’ll be giving away Proactiv products, cash or something that I’ll order online and have it delivered at your home.
