Loved my new hair cut and the hair stylist did a temporary perm for me.. I like the look very much and even consider a permanent perm.. but too risky for me as I am going to have my wedding in sept.. probably after that!

Also bought a pair of new boots.. I really have to stop spending!!

Yoga

June 15, 2008

I started my regular yoga session about four months ago.

I have to say that I totally love it.

You must have heard of a lot of benefits about practising yoga.. In this information age, we always have too much information and don’t know which one is true and which one is not that true. The following is an extract from BBC.

Yoga practitioners claim that all forms of the discipline offer health and physical benefits – from lowering blood pressure to improving flexibility.

Often the first basic lesson of a yoga class is deep, rhythmic breathing, which practitioners say can help to relieve respiratory complaints including asthma, as well as feeding more oxygen to the muscles to boost their strength.

It also helps to improve posture by teaching relaxation of the neck, shoulders and upper back, easing tension that can trigger aches and pains in the back.

Certain postures can also help to lengthen and strengthen the spine.

Yoga practitioners also claim that specific postures such as abdominal twists gently massage internal organs including the kidneys to improve their efficiency while forward bends can stimulate the digestive processes to help ease indigestion problems.

The inverted postures such as the head and shoulder stands, boost blood circulation and therefore improve skin tone.

The deep relaxation exercises normally practised at the end of a class can also relieve stress and anxiety, they claim.

Of course you can choose not to believe any of this. As for myself, I feel the improvement in my posture a lot. I use to crouch a lot and it is really hard to get rid of this poor posture due to habit and laziness. I have done pilates class before and my posture improves tremendously. Yoga did the same wonder to me! My back is much more straight nowadays. Due to running 2 to 3 times a week, I have tight hamstrings and calves. Doing certain yoga posture stretch those muscle groups and leave me refreshed for another running session.

I do believe aerobic exercise, weight training + yoga will do wonder for everyone. The key is to be persistent and regular!!

Online Shopping

January 6, 2008

One of my favourite pastime activities is shopping! Ever since I have broadband Internet connection, I develop the love for online surfing. Combining these two activities together, my another beloved activity is —- Yeah!! Online shopping!! I do think that online shopping is a potential business, judging at the widespread of the Internet connectivity. More and more people spend more time at home, surfing the Internet! So, there is more and more opportunities ONLINE!  

Recently a lot of my friends start their online business, which I think is a promising business. I intend to start my own online clothing business as well. I have an uncle who managed a large fashion retail shop in Malaysia. I hope I can get my supply from him. I am currently in touch with a company in Taiwan, which may become my another source. Then I need to setup my website, which is not a big problem as I have a friend who specialized in designing website. I think I can count on him.

But, how are my future customers going to do their payment? I think I need a secure and user-friendly online shopping cart software. It must not be too expensive as I don’t have much capital to spend. I have been searching high and low for this kind of software. Luckily, my friend introduced me to a nice and simple shopping cart software solution provided by Ashop Commerce.

Ashop!

It is good that they offers the user 10 days free trial!! I tried it out and it really impressed me! It is very simple, straight-forward, and no programming knowledge required to setup the software. Although the setup is simple, the software is sophisticated. It allows me to customize the design, the payment method, shipping, tax, discount and other important features for my business!!

Most importantly, it is very affordable. BINGO! This is exactly what I need for my new online clothing business.

I have been eyeing this purse for long time. But as I am not rich, I have never paid much attention to what purse this is.. I just want to find something similar to this at budget price.

However, Vanessa Hudgens carried a black one in one of her outings. She looked so cool and put together. She always dresses herself nicely and appropriate for her age.

and also a lot of other celebrities that heart the Chanel 2.55!

It does not get any more classic than this. Launched in February 1955, the Chanel 2.55 (Get it?) is as stylish today as it was 50 years ago. The bag features a double chain shoulder strap that allows a woman’s hands to be free, a special invention of Coco Chanel.

Chanel has reissued this epic design that started it all. Subdued turn clasp is sans the CC claps we are used to, making it more discrete. Double flap closure, and exterior love letter pocket complete the design. The purse is being created in seven sizes and three colors; gray with ruthenium, white with antique nickel, and black with aged gold hardware. Prices range from $1795-2490 (Ouch!).
