Mind your beeswax

February 11, 2009

When looking for a safe  alternative to all the natural/herbal/new age/homeopathic/reflexology/relaxation/ beauty products out there, you might ask yourself beeswax or glycerine? Well why not ask yourself, soy wax?

Soy wax is quite a recent invention. It was only in 1991, when Michael Richards, when looking for a cheaper alternative for beeswax, that he developed soy wax. There was a big demand for natural wax candles, but beeswax was about 10 times more expensive than paraffin. As he entered the candle industry with beeswax products he realized there was a growing demand for natural wax candles. Micheal Richard tested different natural plant waxes and finally ended up with a vegetable wax which was made with partially hydrogenated soy oil, coconut oil and palm oil. He also blended beeswax with soy wax to make an economical natural wax candle.

Soy wax doesn’t burn you.

Soy wax is good for the skin.

Soy wax candles burn all the way down, equally, without sinking in the middle!

Soy wax seems to be the way to go, but maybe I should just mind my own beeswax?

Thermage- is it the way to go?

February 9, 2009

Are you feeling saggy? have you hit 40,41,43 and more than your credit has cruched? Maybe thermage is the way to go.

What is it? When I hear the word ‘thermage’ fo some reason I imagine heat and water. So is it all a lot of  hot water?

Here is a random before and after picture:

Thermage is a non-invasive, no-downtime cosmetic surgery technique that tightens aging skin and renews the facial features. Thermage was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in late 2001 and has grown in popularity in the last few years. Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to enhance the appearance of facial skin around the eyes and forehead, producing desirable results with no incisions and virtually no recovery time. During the Thermage procedure, the epidermis (outermost layer of the skin) is cooled down with a spray so as not to damage the visible layers of the skin. The Thermage procedure also works by activating the body’s own natural healing response, leading to new collagen production.

Cost: about $2000 ( a quarter the price of a facelift and no pain )

Available in Kuwait?

I not heart Valentine’s Day

February 6, 2009

Dear Betty,

I am heartbroken- I feel Valentine’s Day should be next Friday (13th) instead of Saturday. I have absolutely no money ( just lost my job) and want to get my girlfriend something. What can I do?

Unemployed and soon to be Dumped

Dear UASTBD,

Never worry.Here are a few tips!

Handmade Valentine’s Day card – Express your love for your loved one with the help of a handmade card.

Cake with a personalized message – Buy an ice cream or chocolate cake, along with colorful icing from the market and write a message for your loved one across the cake.

12 Red Roses Brunch – Flowers have an appeal of their home. Give this bunch of red roses and convey your feelings of love by attaching to it a short, simple and sweet message. These bouquets can be made at home or brought from the market. If the bouquets are made at home, then they should be decorated with heart shaped stones, which may be red, pink or white in color.

For added effect, one candle, with a ribbon wrapped around, and the last Rolo in the packet!

Help Betty!My girlfriend is too popular!

February 6, 2009

Dear Betty,

MY girlfriend and I agreed ground rules when she went away to university. One was not to be in a room alone with someone of the opposite sex and the other was no kissing either on the cheek or lips.

I’ve since seen photos of her kissing different guys on the cheek and I feel really let down.

I am 21 and my girlfriend is 19. I was pleased for her when she got her place at uni, but sorry at the same time as I knew we’d be a long distance from one another. She said she was sorry for the pictures and that she didn’t even realise what had happened and that the kissing on the cheek was just for the photo. Even so I felt my heart has been ripped out when I saw them. What do you think I should do?
