Cleanse, tone and moisturize that’s the skincare routine that most of us grew up to and that’s what I did until two years ago. When it comes to skin care, I can say that I’ve always been diligent. As early as 14 years old, my mom got me my first skin care kit with facial cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and sunscreen. She nagged me every day to use them, or else I will regret it when I get older when dark spots and wrinkles start to appear, and of course, I was scared so even though moisturizer at that time felt oily I still followed her instructions.
I believed her because growing up I saw my mom lather cold cream on her face every night and until now she has the softest skin I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately for me, I did not get that soft skin gene, but I can say that her nagging for me to do my daily skin care seemed to work well because I grew up without any major skin issues. But then two years ago something changed, my skin just can’t take any skincare product. Any product even facial wash makes my skin super red and itchy, I thought I was just allergic to the product I used, so I went to buy other brands that are hypoallergenic and even tried baby products, but still my skin still got itchy and red, and worst I even had skin asthma. I was so frustrated at that time; then my dermatologist told me to try Korean skin care, and I’ve been hooked ever since.
I firmly believe every woman is beautiful. In fact I launched a You are beautiful campaign a few years ago. You can see all the lovely ladies that joined me.
I am really not sure why with all the swim suit options people chose to wear suits that do nothing for their bodies. It is difficult to find a suit that fits. I suggest buying separates. I also suggest being honest with yourself. If you are trying on string bikinis and you need a search and rescue mission to find the string it isn’t the suit for you. I also suggest bending over and looking at your butt. You should only see about 1/4 of your butt unless you are someone who has a great butt. Then I suggest bending over and picking up something and seeing if your boobs are contained. I realize some of you have great boobs but putting them out there in a situation that one false move and all modesty is lost is a hazard. I may be old school but your bathing suit should cover more than your underwear. Your bathing suit should be capable covering your private parts. They are called private for a reason. I am going to give you tips on finding cheap plus size bathing suits.

My son enjoyed our first Felt Craft Projects and has been bugging me to do another one, but since I don’t have much time I decided to find an easier craft project to work on. Since I have some black and red craft felt I suggested we do ladybug craft and he immediately approved. This Ladybug Craft Mask project is super easy to make and looks really cute!
Red and Black Craft Felt
Cutter Elastics for Ear Loops
Cut the paper plate in half with a v-shaped pattern (refer to the picture). We’re going to use the one with inverted v shape. You should measure this according to the size of the kid’s face. The inverted V sits on top of the kid’s nose.
Glue the red felt paper on your paper plate.
Then using the black felt paper, cut out small circles. You should also cut out a half circle pattern.
On your paper plate, place the black half circle pattern in the middle lower section and glue it.
Then to follow the layout of the paper plate, cut the black felt paper so it follows the v pattern (refer to the picture above for the shape).
On the upper half of the paper plate, glue the small circles to make it look like the dots of ladybugs
Using the black felt paper, cut out two strips. You can glue it on a cardboard paper first before placing it on your mask to make sure it will hold its shape. This will serve as the antenna of the ladybug.
On top of the two strips, cut out and glue two huge circles on top.
Now it’s time to make holes for the eyes. I used a large bottle cap as my pattern, then using a cutter I traced around it. Make sure to measure the spacing so your kid will be able to comfortably see.
You can place this on a stick for a handheld mask or punch a small hole on two sides and attach an elastic thread for earloops.
