learning new tricks

leave a comment »

i have hooded eyes and oily skin and i love dark eye liners. as we inch closer and closer towards the most crazy humid days of the year, i am suffering like mad. my eye liners have the tendency of leaving an imprint. it’s so ugly and messy. during the day it’s hard to clean as well because you have to leave everything else intact. looks like those days are behind me now that i have been introduced to nars’ smudge proof eyeliner base. i was skeptical of it and i told nicole the sales representative that if it doesn’t work, i will never come back to nars.

thank god, it does and i so love it. just apply it before you put on any eye liner.

something else new that i started doing this week is to go for yoga at this yoga place – yoga village. there are yoga classes at the general gym that i go to but nowadays i have been working 11 – 12 hours a day and after work i don’t have much time. i need to do high impact exercises that would guarantee that i burn the most calories in an hour and obviously that would be running. also i have been doing yoga to help me alleviate muscle soreness but i haven’t had any great improvements at all. and so i thought of upping my game to learn under different teachers.

i love the teachers at yoga village. they don’t try and do too many poses in one hour and you hold the poses for a much longer time. they explain the reasons why you do the poses and what muscle groups you need to work on.

at the end of the day, i love trying out new things. it’s amazing how much you learn you by doing something you thought you knew differently.

groupon-ed out

leave a comment »

i first heard of groupon in 2008 in fortune magazine. created by this whiz of a man andrew mason, mason made group buying a hit!!!!

i signed up for groupon a few months ago just to see what sorts of deals they offer.i have been tempted more than once to buy it seriously.. after months of just laying low, i decided to just take a plunge and become a groupon convert. the first thing i bought was this pizza deal..and two days later – two more dining deals and then facials.. it’s so addictive.

andrew mason is such a genius omg!!! first of all, inflation is seriously getting out-of-whack. i still want a good life and enjoy different dining experiences. there is no reason not to shop on groupon honestly!!! and also because we are such creatures of habits, we always end up doing the same thing over and over again. the deals that go on groupon is good incentive for me ( at least to try new stuff)

can’t wait to see what the new deals are on groupon tomorrow -it’s like the first thing i check when i step into the office!!!!
