Bartholins-Cyst

Treatment for Bartholin’s Cyst

It was about 3 years ago on one of my ob/gyne trips; I was diagnosed with something called a Bartholin’s Cyst. Prior to that consultation, I had felt some kind of a lump but it wasn’t painful and it was just the size of a kidney bean. The ob/gyne explained to me as best she can about what a Bartholin’s Cyst is. It is the clogging of the Bartholin’s gland. The doctor advised me that should it become enlarged, I would feel pain and discomfort but as long as I didn’t have any, it was just fine to leave it as it is. After that visit, I promptly forgot about it. BartholinsCyst.jpg

Food that Fight Wrinkles

I was browsing through the screenshot gallery of my tablet and saw an image that I took from a magazine I read last year. One of the signs of aging is wrinkles and even if you’re only in your early 30’s, it’s never a bad thing to start prevention. I’ve been diligently moisturizing my face right before I put on make-up and right before I go to sleep. Here’s how you can fight wrinkles from within. Food-for-wrinkles

According to a Reader’s Digest article that I read, you can eat these food items that are rich in antioxidants to help fight the onset of wrinkles from within. Continue reading

It has been a while

After my New Year greeting and my promise to keep this blog more updated, you might have noticed that I haven’t had a post since. Yes, I know it’s been a while and I apologize for the very few updates. My father who had been battling liver cancer succumbed to the disease less than a month ago. His passing brought about this inherent sadness and loss and to be honest, I found it hard to continue my passions. There’s not a single day that passes when I don’t think of him.  little-rock-hiatus

Usher in the New Year

In my part of the world it’s already 7 hours into the New Year and we’ve already welcomed it with a bang. Well, the firecrackers are gone now and it’s pretty quiet. I’m one of the few souls spending some solitude while everyone else has gone to bed. If you still have a champagne glass in your hand, I raise the red wine goblet that I have in mine. Cheers!

Today is a lazy Sunday and since it’s a non-working holiday tomorrow, there won’t be any Monday blues tonight. Whoopie! How do you spend relaxing days at home?

My ideal lazy Sunday scenario would be lounging around at home in the comfiest clothing imaginable.

I’m really sorry for the long hiatus, you just won’t believe the amount of workload that I’ve had to deal with and get used to for the past weeks. I had an unexpected restful weekend and I’m just relishing every moment of it. Stress cannot be good for the body as it affects productivity, not to mention your health and your overall emotional well-being. Speaking of, for this post I’m going to list down my top 10 Favorite Ways to De-stress.

10 Favorite Ways to De-Stress

1 Read a book

I love curling up on the sofa or on my bed with a really good book that can get me lost in its pages and keep me distracted with its story and characters. This way I could also make some significant progress with my reading challenge on Goodreads.

Just a thought: Break up Candy

You know how it sucks when someone dumps you over an email or a text message? Here’s something an idea that’s a little more quirky and bittersweet. The idea came from a designer named Kathy Mueller for her graduate school project. It won me over in terms of packaging design and concept. While it may not be the traditional way to tell someone that it’s not working out for you, at least you’ll be leaving them with a tasty parting gift.
