Let's turn the table! (August)

Internet trolls these days are commonly undermining other people either because of their looks or their beliefs every single day.  Despite their know it all approach on things they still lack the initiative to basically look at their own issues like their misspelled, misused and abused words online. Because of the prevalence of this on Youtube these days I cannot help but make this list of youtube comments. Here are some:
The whole sentence is full of mishaps but I think the main thing that this person should know is the difference of dying, dieting and dieing.
Dying means a person is on the point of death.
Dieting on the other hand means a person is practicing healthy eating.
Dieing is a common misspelling of dying, ok?
For now, please veer away from calling other people stupid.

Digital Stalking

Technology allows us to share a lot of information like photos, thoughts and whereabouts online that sometimes we often tend to neglect our personal privacy. And in that scenario, people are able to get their hands on details that are often crucial to our safety.

In the past, people turn to hearsay and tactical stalking to get an info about their prey. But these days they can easily turn to a number of social media sites to get specific information about their victims, their stalking capability has turned high tech. Whether it be a crime against women, children or a mere petty crime, they have evolved in accordance to our social media happenings.

Like say, our fascination of posting a number of personal gadgets and valuables online. Whether it is a laptop, a new smart phone, a new tablet or sometimes even thousands of dollars at hand, some people are just arrogant and proud that they tend to post these things on their Facebook wall for everyone to ogle on.

Typical Beach Photos on Instagram

A photograph is said to worth a thousand words, especially when you observe the beauty that the world is offering.  However, as I browse through social media sites such as Instagram I realize that not every photo captures something eloquent and worthy of admiration. I mean to stumble upon a number of colorfully decorated fingernails as a artsy excuse for a photo in Instagram is something to think about. Is this our generations take on art? Really?

There are a number of photo categories in Instagram, but for now I am listing the Typical Beach Photos that we typically see on Instagram:

What is Lookbook?

As per Andy Warhol “In the future everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.” And with the advent of a number of social media sites out there, it is indeed very possible. Now, there are a number of ways where you can promote yourself for gratification and attention. You can empower and endorse yourself either by your opinions or your looks. As the saying goes, “if you have it then flaunt it.” This I think is the back drop of another social media site that is getting much attention from stylists, models, photographers and fashion icon wannabe’s. Have you heard of the Lookbook website?

The Lookbook is an online collection of photographs of people from all over the world who primarily shows off their fashion style and taste. Usually you will find a lot of bloggers, amateur and professional photographers, students, stylists, artists, editors, vloggers, designers and models strutting their style in this popular fashion site.

WILDCARD! Home Remedy for Migraine

Migraine is a common issue for adults these days, it may be because of the hectic routine schedule, emotional stress or the dreadful deadlines at work that can trigger this illness. Whatever the cause may be, this often times unbearable headache can really hinder one’s performance and schedule. I myself have experienced a number of distressing migraines in the past year so I was very much willing to experiment on a number of home made remedies that can really ease the pain of migraine naturally.

Here is the list:

Get yourself some sleep
I can firmly attest to this that an adequate sleep is essential to have a migraine free day. So it is wise to have at least eight hours of sleep and just basically keep your sleeping habit healthy  

Make a Ginger Tea
What you will do is pound a ginger root and then add the ginger root to boiling water. Let it cool for a while and then you can pour yourself a warm soothing ginger tea. Ginger is a natural food source that fights off a number of ailments like migraine.

Multiple Facebook Account


Maintaining one account on Facebook can be considered a task especially if you feel oblige to provide up to date information about your whereabouts, opinions and your travel photos. This to some may seem like an unnecessary daunting task that will not be beneficial to anyone but yourself, this is just a self gratifying thing that you do via social media. But what can you say about people who maintain a number of Facebook account?

Facebook was primarily conceived with the thought that it will run under the rule of real names and real causes, this type of platform is fundamental because it leads to a better understanding of respect, accountability and trust.

FAVE! Weight loss TV show

Obesity levels worldwide have more than doubled in the last 20 or so years claiming people from different walks of life. The so called epidemic is reaching people not only through extreme food intake but also through television shows around the world. There seem to be an intense fascination on the lifestyle of these people that is why a number of shows regarding obesity and weight loss is gaining a lot of popularity and high ratings. The show’s primary goal is for the overweight contestants to gradually lose weight and hand in hand to maintain a healthy lifestyle outside of the television series. I am easily drawn to these types of shows because I myself am very critical about my weight too.

Here is my list

Supersize vs. Superskinny

What I like about this show is how they tackle both the issue of obese and undernourished people. What they primarily do is to make these two very different people face their food issue by doing a meal reversal where they’ll have a firsthand experience of how unusual their diet is. Another nice thing about this show is that they let these contestants talk about the emotion that is behind their eating habit. Check out the video!
