Have you ever experienced a day wherein nothing seems to go well, that no matter how you try to choose the right path, you keep making the wrong turn? Just like having a bad hair day, no matter how many times you comb your hair, it just would not budge.

Life can be challenging at times but there will always be a way to resolve these challenges and come out victorious. Having this in mind will be easy to keep your patience and continue to move forward.

Just like losing strands of your hair due to factors beyond your control, you too can do something.

  •  Eat healthy – Eating the right food can alter your mood. Having low-level of folic acid in your body can cause anxiety, hence, food such as asparagus, avocado, salmon, and almond are recommended to fight stress hormones.

  • Stay calm – Listen to comforting music and reading feel-good stories can help switch you to a calm mood.
  • Exercise – Exercise releases endorphins that can relieve you from stress and anxiety.
  •  Supplement –Taking in Vitamins such as B-complex can alter mood swings.

Don’t let your stress factors contribute to your hair loss. Letting yourself succumb to anxiety will definitely show up to your follicles and this can lead to more hair loss.

Hectic schedules and pressure from work, not to mention the pollution and filth outside easily make you feel unease and, at times, irritable. Slow down a bit, have fun and relax. There’s no better way, to begin with, your mane.

Tip 1: The stroke of a comb can give you a soothing feeling while, at the same time, help unleash the natural oil of your hair.

Tip 2: Stay away from getting pigtails, hair weaves, braids and tight hair rollers, which can pull and stress your hair.

Tip 3: Avoid perming, straightening or coloring because they contain toxic chemicals that could cause damage to your locks.

Tip 4: Choose natural. Use NOVUHAIR topical solution. Apply a liberal amount on to your scalp an
d hair. Massage it gently for -10 minutes to help permeate deeply from root to tip. NOVUHAIR is packed with 19 natural ingredients that help promote growth, nourishment, and rejuvenation of your tress.
NOVUHAIR is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide. For more information, please contact hotlines 4136570 and 09228830575 from Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5:00pm or visit

Ways into Teaching

Becoming a teacher can be one of the most challenging and rewarding careers you can choose. You can make a real difference that will be felt across the whole of a person’s life, and there are many opportunities to develop your skills (and salary) across your career.

There are more routes than ever into the teaching profession. The traditional choice is to study an education degree at a university, but more options are available.

On the Job

School Direct and Teach First are programmes that let you train in the classroom, directly in association with a school. School Direct lets you apply directly to schools you are interested in so you can choose where you train and, likely, where your first job will be based.

This is a popular choice for people who have been working with a school all ready to take the next step in their career: for classroom assistants, for example, to maintain a close relationship with their school and the children in it.

Teach First gives you less choice but is more accessible and provides more support to those without an existing association with a school.

Both programmes will grant a PGCE (a qualification required for teaching) upon successful completion, and have options and bursaries that let you earn money will you train, potentially tax-free.

This can be a stressful entry point into teaching for people without prior experience. It’s very much a sink or swim situation, with only 43% of Teach First alumni remaining in teaching after three years.


Many universities offer Undergraduate courses that train you to become a teacher. It’s important to choose the right one for you. Obviously looking at league tables of results is a good place to start, but there’s more to the student experience than that.

For one thing, you’ll need to look at the content of the on offer to make sure it equips you with the skills to be the sort of teacher you want to be. The course that turns out drama teachers who are involved in organizing inspiring extracurricular clubs and activities is not likely to be a good fit if your plan is to climb the hierarchy of the system to become a year head, and or headteacher.

Different universities will excel in different areas, of course. Manchester University can offer a vibrant nightlife alongside its courses, whereas for student accommodation Huddersfield may be your best bet.

By Lauren Smith Brody

Did you know that (October 16) is National Boss’s Day? Here’s my take: The bosses who should be celebrated with the most cupcakes and flowers today are Boss Moms—working moms who do it all and get it done at all hours of the day, and with only a fraction of that time rewarded with an actual paycheck. In fact, according to a recent survey by Total Wireless, 95 percent of moms say that the most stressful part of being a working mom is the pressure to juggle work and family responsibilities to perfection. Do they always get it done without ever losing their cool? Au contraire, ma mere.

In my version of this national holiday, being a Boss Mom means you bless the mess, celebrate the journey that got you to where you are today and realize that a satisfied life is rarely a balanced one...but a happy one. That’s why I’m teaming up with Total Wireless to celebrate Boss Moms and how they do it all on National Boss’s day and beyond.

  1. LEARN THIS TERM: “MENTAL LOAD.” The mental load is the reason that I know how many eggs are in our fridge right now and how high the temperature has to be in order for my boys to be allowed to wear shorts to school (love that dress code). It is also the reason that I occasionally forget to sign a check that I put in the mail (thank you, payment apps for helping me out here). The mental load is the labor we do in our minds keeping track of 1,273,038 things even when we aren’t technically working or parenting. And that work deserves to be acknowledged.

  2. HOLD THE JUDGEMENT, PLEASE. Here’s something wonderful about 2017 (an otherwise complicated year, to say the least): We are officially no longer living in a society where it is socially appropriate for working moms to judge stay-at-home moms, and vice versa. I’ve interviewed hundreds of moms for my book and company, and the general consensus was this: We are all just doing our best to raise the next generation. And yet, so many mothers still admitted to judging themselves. Enough, I say! According to the same survey by Total Wireless, 95 percent of moms know that the journey to success hinges on having the confidence to make the necessary choices...and often those choices include sacrifice. Do not feel guilty. Instead, celebrate your accomplishments. It’s all part of the journey of satisfaction we’re modeling for our kids.

  3. SKIP SOMETHING. Want to know the best feeling in the world (better than the candle-lit bubble bath you’ve been meaning to take for three years now)? Open up your calendar and delete one thing from next week. Here, I’ll even give you your excuse: “I’m looking ahead and realizing I’ve overscheduled myself for next week. Let’s please cancel/move our lunch/meeting/obligation/endeavor/commitment.” Another option if it’s something you can’t miss entirely: Downgrade an in-person meet-up to a phone call. Everyone’s more efficient that way, and you can order groceries online at the same time if needed.

  4. CALL YOUR OWN BOSS MOM. Better yet, FaceTime her (because you know she won’t mind if you’re not wearing any makeup...or if you have to leave her staring at the ceiling while you attend to the 2-year-old’s bloody nose). Whether your mom worked out of the home or not, the list of skills you learned from her is surely long and mighty. (The same survey I reference above found more than half of working women consider their own moms the ultimate “total boss.”) Did she teach you to drive (thus ensuring you can do that last conference call of the day while in the privacy of your own car)? Did she force you and your sister to “work it out between you two” (and give you team-building skills that you use to this day?). It’s vital to acknowledge that stuff, not just because it makes her feel appreciated...but because it makes you realize how much wisdom you’re imparting to your own kids that they’ll use one day. Oh, tell your mom that part too!

This National Boss’s Day, join me and Total Wireless in celebrating working moms for everything they’ve accomplished—including the choices and sacrifices they’ve made to get where they are today.

With great coverage on America’s largest and most dependable 4G LTE† network, Total Wireless gives you the confidence to plan and celebrate the ‘total boss’ mom in your life—all from the palm of your hand with your smartphone. Learn more at

Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa Celebrates the 2nd Year of National Pampering Day #NationalPamperingDay

During the olden times, working Moms like me are limited when it comes to "me-time" as what we call it today. Moms are bound to do housework, take care of the kids and make the home beautiful. Setting aside our self to renew, recharge and be pampered has been always the last priority. Not anymore! with all the possible ways to get yourself relax, enjoy and rejuvenate, we don't have any reason to do so. I for myself is excited for the National Pampering Day soon be happening at all Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa! 

When it comes to pampering on a national scale, Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa holds the only spot. After introducing the celebration of the National Pampering Day last year, Nailaholics is back at it again this 2017 with an amplified nationwide celebration of relaxation that everyone is looking forward to this October 17.

The National Pampering Day got off to a good start last year where Nailaholics offered free manicure service and a stress-relieving hand massage from 10 AM to 12 NN on all their branches nationwide. This year, everyone will be treated to a free service of their choice: a soothing manicure, calming foot spa or a relaxing foot massage.

“We Filipinos are very hardworking in any given aspect of our lives and a nation of energetic and industrious people best deserves real pampering once in a while. This year, as Nailaholics celebrates the 2nd National Pampering Day, we go deeper and dedicate this to everyone and remind them to take it slow, take it easy, zone out and relax for a while,” said Arvin Amaro, Marketing Head of Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa.

“With last year’s success of the National Pampering Day, we are back this year with a bigger and much more enjoyable day of pampering. In partnership with the number one salon brand and most beloved nail lacquer brand in the world, O.P.I., National Pampering Day 2017 will accommodate more guests with the extension of pampering time until 1PM. Also, the best thing about this year’s National Pampering Day is that it will be in support to World Vision, The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), and Save Philippine Seas” added Amaro.

So save the date and get ready to park away from any thoughts of work because the only responsibility you have is to loosen up. Wind down and head down to any Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa branch on October 17, 2017 (Tuesday) from 10 AM to 1 PM and get yourself a free relaxing manicure, foot spa or foot massage.

Let Nailaholics’ skilled nail technicians take care of you for a little while and walk out of this Hamptons-inspired nail salon feeling refreshed and ready to bring it on again. Grab this once a year treats only at the country’s top destination for relaxation and real pampering.

SJCAM SJ8 A Real GoPro Hero 6 Rival

This past week so the official launch of the GoPro Hero 6, but if you really want an upgraded action camera the latest SJCAM SJ8 makes better sense.

With the launch of the GoPro Hero 6, Go Pro announced a few new features ranging from a new self-developed GP1 chipset, along with the introduction of 4K video recording at 60FPS.

While the Hero 6 is likely going to be a very high-quality action camera, we can’t help think that the pricing of this device is still far too expensive, even more so when you are able to get similar features from the latest SJCAM.

Just like the GoPro Hero 6, the SJCAM SJ8 boasts 4K video at 60FPS and in addition to that gets other top features including a large 2.33-inch touch screen, RAM image support, slow-motion version recording, support for Live streaming, and even voice control.

While GoPro moved away from Ambarella chipsets for the Hero 6 to achieve new features, SJCAM has remained with the Ambarella H22 and achieved some of those same features.

The 70 x 40 x 30mm camera weighs 70g, is IP68 certified, boasts a 1000mAh battery and is charged via USB Type C.

As with previous SJCAM action cameras, the SJ8 will be much more affordable with the current online listing for the camera pricing it at around 368 Euros. We hope to get our hands on the SJ8 in the next few weeks for review, watch this space.

A remembrance candle at your wedding - a heartfelt tribute

Weddings are truly one of life's moments' events where two people dedicate the rest of their lives to each other. So it's no surprise that most couples go all out on making it a truly momentous occasion. So a great deal of effort and money is spent selecting the perfect venue and how it is decorated as well as the million other details from dresses to flowers to photographers and transport.

As important as all of these things are, by far the most crucial factor in making a wedding day special is the presence of friends and loved ones to share it with.

Unfortunately, it is sometimes not possible for a loved one to be present on a special day either due to simply being physically unable to attend or as a result of sadly no longer being with us. In such cases, it is a nice touch to include something with which to remember loved ones who are not able to be with you on your special day.

A flickering flame of remembrance
One fitting way to do this is to include a personalised remembrance candle either as part of the ceremony or at the reception venue or at both. The idea behind such absence candles is to use them to commemorate those who could not be present. However, there is an also another reason and it's that having a lit candle provides a feeling of closeness and presence through the movement of a flickering flame. Quite simply they are beautiful poignant ways to provide a sense of connection.

If you are interested in incorporating an absence or remembrance candle into your special day you will find a number of beautiful designs at from which to choose. If you would something completely bespoke like a particular verse add to your candle or to include a photo then please feel free to get in touch via email by using the contact us form on the website

Something to check:
Although churches commonly light candles as part of religious ceremonies it is usually not an issue to have a lit remembrances candle as part of the ceremony. Reception venues, on the other hand, are more likely to have a no naked flame policy so please ensure you make the event organisers aware of your requirements for the need of a lit absence candle. Most venues will accommodate you albeit some may request that the lit candle is housed in a glass container.

Putting Your Stamp on an Outfit

One of the most important things about an outfit is making sure it really expresses what you want it to. There’s no point spending time and money picking clothes when the story they tell about you isn’t what you want the world to hear.

Whether you’re dressed for a formal event, or a day of casual fun with friends you need to make sure you’re putting your personal stamp on your outfits.

You’ve got to think about what you want to broadcast to the world and pick clothes that speak to that theme. It doesn’t have to be your entire outfit. It can be more effective you choose basics that are uncontroversial: solid, rather statement, clothes, and combine them with a single accessory or final touch that makes the whole outfit speak for you very clearly. If you want to stand out from the crowd a bit in a formal setting, adding a colourful or patterned tie to a sober suit or even better, throwing a highly coloured scarf around your neck lets you make some significant choices about what you’re wearing and broadcast your personality without falling foul of the dress codes that govern formal events.

When you’re dressing casually you have a much broader palette to express yourself with. Clothes can do different jobs when you match them in different combinations, and in different contexts. For example, a much-loved band t-shirt is as good as a uniform when you’re at a gig watching them play but on an otherwise unconnected night out is less about blending in with fans and more about standing out to them.

If you’ve decided on a definite look, it’s useful to have a few different variations on a theme so can keep restating your identity with your clothes: it doesn’t send a very clear message if your identity goes away as soon one shirt hits the laundry basket. If you’re trying to project a rugged, outdoorsy look, investing in a few different Bear T Shirts means you can keep it up day after day, whenever you need to.

Choosing what you want your clothes to say about you, and picking a wardrobe full that are all talking the same language means you take control of your clothing, and make sure it’s speaking for you, not making you the mouthpiece for a collection of brands.
