Binge on Bingo

Almost all of us are feeling the tiredness and exhaustion that comes after work in this season. We have all been enjoying the holidays and now working even for a day or two makes us wish the holidays never ended. This extended version of the Monday morning blues takes me in every time and I keep wishing I had a time machine. But nothing really seems to help when all I want is to get that warm holiday feeling back.

I recently found something that did help, though. Bingo. I stumbled across websites offering online casino and bingo games to users. I signed up in an instant and was rewarded with a huge bonus just for signing up! I played a lot of bingo games and they were certainly fun. I played casino games like blackjack and rummy in all seriousness and won myself a little cash award too.

I realized that this was a brilliant way to distract myself from daily stress and to keep entertained. Also, one thing that I now absolutely love about online bingo is the chat room. I have met so many interesting people online through these bingo chat rooms. It is always a pleasure to meet a fellow bingo player who shares your ideas and interests. Also, the chat rooms have amazing and witty chat hosts who are there to provide you with prizes and bonuses in case you start feeling a little drab.

So if you find yourself wondering how to make yourself feel better after the long haul of holidays, online bingo might be perfect for you, so give it a try and see how it works out!

YoDerm: Visit a Dermatologist From the Comfort of Your Own Home!

yoderm01

My skin is one of my biggest insecurities. Being in my late thirties, every time I break out, I want to hide until my skin is clear. Acne chips away at my confidence at times. It makes me look down and avoid looking people in the eye when they talk to me or shy away from loved ones when they try to touch my face. I can handle bad hair days, that’s easy to hide, but what I hate is bad skin days. You can’t hide that quite as easily.

Because of this, I turned to prescription medication. I’ve visited a handful of dermatologists in the last few years but I didn’t feel like I was actually heard. I walked away with a prescription for spironolactone but no real advice in terms of skincare. I’ve been on spironolactone for a few years now and I’ve seen some improvement in my skin but not as much as I hoped for. I wanted more progress but the dermatologists I saw didn’t offer any other alternatives.

A few weeks ago I began researching a few other prescription medications that I hoped would put an end to my bouts of painful cystic acne. Right when I was considering visiting a new dermatologist to explore this, I received an offer to try a consultation with a dermatologist from YoDerm.com. The timing was perfect so I couldn’t say no, I was eager to try this service and see what would happen.

Coming Back Soon

I started Product Girl almost 11 years ago because I was passionate about beauty products. Back then I didn’t have much going for me, I was a sad and lonely person for a very long time. Buying a new lipstick or perfume made me feel better about myself so I filled a void by sharing my passion with others on the internet. When I had nothing else going for me, I would come home from a long day at work and write about lipstick. I quickly discovered that I really enjoyed blogging about my passion and it began to consume me. This blog led to so many great things and experiences. I’ve been fortunate to meet so many amazing people over the years and I’ve learned so much along the way.

Almost five years ago I was forced to give up this blog in exchange for the promise of my dream job. I agreed to this because the alternative was giving up said dream job. I put someone else in charge and let her lead the way, she was someone I trusted and who’s voice I admired greatly. When the dream job crashed and burned, I’ve touched on this a little bit in the past, I tried to take the lead again but I was in such a deep depression that I could barely get out of bed. When the person I trusted decided to go out on her own, that was a blow that took me awhile to recover from. Because of all of this, this blog represented what was wrong in my life for the last few years. I couldn’t make this work and I was very hard on myself about it so I let it die.

From Summer to Autumn – Making the Transition of Your Wardrobe

The style transition from summer to fall can instil fear into even the savviest dresser. Going from skin-bearing gypsy dressed to cover-up cardigans is no easy feat. The weather forecast in between seasons is always hard to gage, which means that you need to have a wardrobe — and you can furniture at Tesco to store your clothes in — full of essential transitional pieces in place for those “just in case” days. With A/W’15 trends in mind, here’s a list of your fashion must-haves to take you into September.

Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize

Get more wear out of your colorful summer dresses by wearing a pair of tights with them when the temperature and starts to drop. Make sure that they are black, opaque. This way, they will make the patterns, cut and color of your dress pop out against the greying weather. Also, keep your sandals out. They will still match long jeans and can add a casual touch to work attire. Just be sure to dig your boots out when the rain starts to fall. Cotton scarves are another accessory that never fail to come in handy throughout the year. They can keep the sun off you in the sunshine or keep your chest warm when the wind blows in. They can complete the look of any outfit too — make sure you choose a versatile hue.

Be creative with layering

Clashing prints are a big trend this season, as seen on catwalk shows from Brit favorites Holly Fulton and Peter Pilotto. This is a great opportunity to put some real imagination into layering. Head out the door on a sunny morning in a loud and proud t-shirt then return home in the chilly evening with the even louder and prouder jumper that you kept in your bag. Faux-fur is also a favorite this season, especially in vibrant hues like those by Shrimps, so carry a detachable faux fur trim for your coat or jacket.

The denim skirt

Yes, the denim skirt is said to be the It item this fall. Get any style to suit you: calf length, A-line, button up, high waist — the choice is yours. Get yours now to get some wear out of it and catch a tan with your legs out. Then when fall draws closer you can stick a pair of tights on or pair with some knee length boots.

Long-sleeved dresses

Make sure you have a couple of options in your trusty clothes haven (that’s your wardrobe!). Choose floaty styles (gypsy styles and folklore prints are popular this year) so that you won’t get too hot when the sun decides to stay out a bit longer. Again, these dresses are versatile enough to wear with either sandals, heels or boots.

With some good accessories, key Fall pieces and a lot of layering options, you will walk into the new season looking the business.

Light Makeup Tips for Teens
Makeup is important because you want to look stylish!
Well, this is true, but we feel makeup helps in letting others know that you are beautiful.
However, we see teens wearing too much of it and regret being laughed at by friends and classmates.
If you are the victim, in this case, here are some light makeup tips that will help you look beautiful and make sure that you are not overdoing it.

Hydrating your skin
With a dry face, makeup will create a less professional look. So, make sure that you hydrate your skin before applying makeup.
If needed, use moisturizers to make your skin healthy and smooth.

Eyeshadow
Starting with the eyeshadow is a good idea, but make sure that you apply it lightly.
Here, make sure that you choose a color that matches your skin tone. It is a safe bet.
If you are applying an eyeshadow for the first time, make sure that you do not open your eyes too wide. If that happens, you might crease it. This will leave an extremely visible mark and can spoil the look. So, be careful.

Lip gloss
To show off your natural lip color, apply a light lip gloss and highlight the natural color of your lips. You can even choose a clear lip gloss. Vivid colors are a big NO.
If you do not have a lip gloss in your makeup box, order one online. Visit Kohl’s and look for natural and naked tones that can match your lip tone easily.
Kohl’s is a popular online store and offers a variety to choose from!
Buying a couple of them? Look for offers available at that store.

Hydrating your lips with a lip balm
A lip balm can instantly hydrate your lips. So, wear a nice lip balm.
If possible, wear it beneath your gloss. This will take care of softness.
So, always carry a lip balm in your purse.

Mascara + eyelash curler
If you want to impress your classmates or simply look beautiful, you should let your eyes talk. For this, you need to be sure that your eyes look bigger and open more. So, curl your lashes and wear mascara. This should be good enough to make an impact on the onlooker.
Note: In some cases, one coat may not be enough. In this case, do two coats.
Want to buy it? Visit Kohl’s and look for offers on it.
Apart from store offers, hunt for the right coupon codes too. Coupon codes for Kohl’s are available at various coupon sites. So, get some coupon codes and save money on your purchases.

Say no to liners
Usually, a teen’s priority is to look cute. So, avoid a liner because it can spoil your cute look. It is really harsh. So, it is better to avoid it.

Wash off your makeup
At the end of the day, it is important to wash off your makeup. You don’t need it in your sleep. So, wash it off, always!
