Watch out for the blue moon tonight

Is there really a blue moon?

“A blue-colored moon is rare. But folklore has defined two different kinds of Blue Moons. A Blue Moon can be the second full moon in a month. Or it can be the third of four full moons in a season. The full moon of August 31, 2012 will be considered a Blue Moon.” —

Experts said the next Blue moon will happen on July 31, 2015.

New hairdo

I’m sporting a new hairdo sans silver jewelry. Thanks to my zany daughter for taking my picture so close. I could almost kiss the camera right there.

Why the new look? Well, a friend of mine and her sister insisted that I get a new haircut to make me look younger. They were actually requesting the hair stylist to make me look like a 15-year-old girl, but the confused hair stylist shrugs it off and said he can’t do a miracle like that. Haha!

I love my hair now as it makes me feel and look a bit younger. What do you think? 😉

No Complaints Here

Lately, work has been more time-consuming than I thought it would be. Even though work takes up only eight hours of my day, that’s before you factor in an hour’s worth of commuting back and forth to the office. Then, there are also those unavoidable daily tasks such as doing household chores, walking the dog, etc. So even though I absolutely need to do things such as buy groceries or new clothes, I can just never squeeze them into my schedule. Along with having very little spare time, I also don’t have much money to devote myself to any serious hobbies. With no time and money to even get out of home or work, I decided to try shopping online. In the process, I found out about a saving grace called

I’m not exaggerating when I say that shopping online has made my life ten times easier. I don’t have to scramble anymore to find time to run my errands. Instead, I can just browse shops online easily from my computer. The only drawback was the cost of shipping. In some cases I spent more on shipping my purchase than I did buying it! I felt like I was being robbed of my hard earned money, so I decided to check out One of my friends had mentioned it a while back, so I read a few reviews on it and then visited their homepage. Believe me when I tell you that this isn’t a scam – this is the real deal! Not only did they have testimonials right on their homepage, but they also offered a 30 day risk-free trial to test out their features before committing to anything. This put me at ease – I didn’t want to fall victim to fraud, so the idea of a free trial was very appealing to me.

I signed up for the trial immediately, eager to get free shipping from all my favorite retailers. Over the next month I shopped for all my necessities online, and got them delivered to my apartment for free! My trial also introduced me to all the other benefits that a membership came with, such as free return shipping and their complete price protection guarantee. For up to 90 days after I make a purchase, if I find the same item listed for less elsewhere, pays me the difference. Once the trial ended, a full membership only cost me $12.97 per month – far less than what I usually spend on shipping costs.  In addition, a membership also grants me access to all the discounts and coupons that offers its members. I couldn’t be happier – I can’t tell you how much time and money online shopping with saves me. Check it out today, and be prepared to love it!
