How to Achieve Perfect Smile

Does the appearance of your teeth embarrass you because they are not straight or bright enough? Perhaps when you smile, there are noticeable flaws such as a chipped tooth or distorted teeth. Fortunately, there are available solutions from a Park Slope cosmetic dentist. You have a chance to correct what you do not like in a convenient and affordable setting.

Dental work that can improve your teeth, gums or bite has many benefits. The focus is on the positioning of your teeth as well as size and color. Some procedures offer a complete smile makeover; others can correct minor problems. Either way, getting this done can make a significant difference in your life.

Social Benefits Cosmetic Dental Work

Getting the pearly whites that you have wanted is an immediate confidence booster. It is possible that your social life will blossom because you will feel better about your appearance. Not only does a well aligned white smile attract positivity, but it can also brighten someone’s day. You will feel great about your appearance because an area of insecurity has been uplifted.

With a better smile, people will change their perception of who you are and how they choose to behave with you. Behavioral studies found in the American Journal of Social Psychology back this up. People who are physical attractive and have bright smiles have an advantage when they are in social settings and during interviews.

Health Benefits Cosmetic Dental Work

Many people are not aware of the effect poor dental hygiene can have on a person’s physical health. When you hear the word “cosmetic,” the first thought is connected to appearance and how someone looks. However, cosmetic dentistry does more that improve the aesthetics of your smile. It also helps you maintain healthy teeth and gums. Poor dental hygiene can lead to chronic illnesses like diabetes and heart disease.

Once your teeth are reshaped, whitened and straightened, you will become motivated to increase your dental hygiene habits to avoid losing that bright smile. Additionally, you may rethink some of the previous food and drink choices that stained your teeth. A natural effect is improved health once you stop eating too much junk food or drinking sugary drinks.

There are tremendous benefits to having work done to repair your teeth. It typically takes a short time to get certain procedures and to recover. Speaking with your dentist can help you understand the available options that will lead to a healthy, bright smile.

How to Decorate your Fireplace

Fireplaces are considered to be a common feature that is found in most residential properties and is often used to create a warm setting in the winter season. Although the fireplace is a functional feature to have on the property, it can also be used to contribute to the aesthetics of the interior setting. To decorate your fireplace and allow it to work as the focal point of the room, there are a few styles to embrace.

Paint the Bricks

If you want to create a modern setting that looks contemporary, you can paint the bricks of your fireplace to make it look sleek. Use a coat of black or white paint, which update the feature and allow it to look new again.

Decorate your fireplace

Many fireplaces aren’t built with a mantel, making it important to install the feature to have a place to store framed photos or artwork. Consider installing a mantel that is constructed out of reclaimed wood for a rustic touch that will add a rich element to the space. Dress up the mantel by using dried flowers in a vase, antique bottles, and candles. You can also add a large mirror or floral wreath.

Use Vintage Fireplace Tools

The fireplace tools that are used should contribute to the decor of the fireplace. Use antique fireplace tools that are vintage and are made of quality materials to show off a beautiful product. You can add extra charm to the fireplace with the tools and also use the items when you’re having a fire.

Add Candles

More people are decorating the inside of the fireplace with different types of candles. Gather a dozen different sizes of candles that will add more dimension to the fireplace and will look beautiful when each candle is lit. You can also add stacks of wood inside of the fireplace or fill it with flowers during the spring season.

Use Baskets

Baskets that are placed in front of the fireplace add a cozy touch that will make the house feel like a home. Use the baskets to hold wood logs, pillows, and blankets for the living room.

When you want to dress up your fireplace and allow it to look updated, there are several elements to incorporate to make it appear stylish. By getting creative, you’ll feel proud to show off the space and use it for more than just making fires.

ABS-CBN Upcoming Korean Drama 2017

ABS-CBN sets to air 7 Korea’s biggest hit series. As a big fan of Kdrama I’m happy hearing the news. Finally ABS-CBN is back airing Kdrama. For this year they announced to air this 7 kdrama series  including “Love in the Moonlight,” “Legend of the Blue Sea,” “Hwarang,” “Goblin,” “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo,” “W” and “Doctors.”

I believed the first to be aired will be Love in the Moonlight replacing Pinoy Big Brother (PBB). Love in the Moonlight stars Park Bo-gum and Kim Joo-yung is a romantic comedy about a young prince who falls in love with a woman disguised as a eunuch.

Lee Min-ho will be back on Philippine television along with Jun Ji-hyun in Legend of the Blue Sea, a love story between a man and a mermaid.

“Train to Busan” star Gong Yoo will also make his television comeback as an immortal protector of souls in the fantasy series Goblin.

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo is about the coming-of-age series about a group of college athletes. Next  is Hwarang about a group of young, handsome men devoted to defending the king.

Fall in love with W (two worlds) starring Lee Jong-suk and Han Hyo-joo. “W” tells the story of a woman pulled inside the parallel world of a webtoon created by his father. Finally Doctors  starring Park Shin-hye and Kim Rae-won. It is about medical drama which features the love story between a rebel turned neurosurgeon and her mentor.

I already watched Love in the Moonlight, Legend of the Blue Sea, W and currently watching Doctors. I will watch the other three especially Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo. Although I prefer watching in Korean language, I will definitely see them also in tagalized version.

Shopping for Sunglasses Online

Are your current sunglasses falling apart? If this is the case, you better get some new ones before summer arrives. Where should you do your shopping for sunglasses? There are certainly many different websites you can choose from that sell sunglasses. Doing your shopping online can save you a lot of time. However, you should never make the mistake of thinking that all sites that sell sunglasses are basically the same. This is simply not the case. Here are a few tricks that will help you to find the best sunglasses at the lowest prices when you are shopping online.

1. Does the site sell sunglasses that are made by all of the most popular brands?

You should never be limited regarding the sunglasses that you can buy. In other words, do not shop at sites that only have a paltry selection in their inventory. Make sure that the sites you do business with expose you to the widest variety of manufacturers. You will find that some companies have exclusive contracts with various online retailers. This means that those sites will not carry the competitors of the brands they have contracts with. Not all retailers operate like this. Keep looking until you discover a site that allows you to do all of your shopping for sunglasses in one place.

2. Look for sites that have frequent sales on the sunglasses they sell.

It is smart to look for deals when you shop online. People who are experienced when it comes to deal hunting regularly save a lot of money. You should never pay more than you need to for sunglasses. It would be a shame if you bought a pair of sunglasses and the exact same type was on sale for less on a different site. The time you spend looking for deals will be worth it if you are able to find a great pair of sunglasses for a cheap price. You might even find a site that has deals on bulk order sunglasses.

3. Compare the shipping rates of all the sites you are thinking about doing business with.

Many online retailers take advantage of their customers by overcharging them for shipping on the items they buy. Do not allow yourself to be one of these people. Make sure that you compare how much the various sites are charging for shipping. Choose the one that will ship your sunglasses the cheapest.

Building a New Garage

A garage provides protection for your car from outdoor elements, as well as a convenient place to store tools, gardening equipment and a variety of household items. If you don’t have an existing garage, it may be time to consider one. Building a new garage for your home will provide many benefits that make your lifestyle easier and more efficient.

Before you decide to build a new garage, you should think about the advantages and disadvantages of an attached garage versus a detached garage. Do you want a secure space to park your car every night? Do you want a separate space for certain activities? Do you need extra storage? Both types of garages offer advantages and disadvantages. Depending on your property size, garage size, intended use of the space, and your budget, it’s important to determine which type of garage works best for your needs.

* Attached Garage – Building an attached garage is equivalent to building a large home addition without separate interior walls for different rooms. You’ll be adding a large space to your home’s structure, but your contractor can use existing exterior walls as part of the new structure. This can save you money on construction costs.

* Detached Garage – Building a detached garage is equivalent to building a small house. You will need to dig out the ground and pour a foundation for the structure. Typically, it’s a bigger project than building an attached garage, so you may incur more upfront construction costs. However, a detached garage may give your more design options for the space.

With both types of garages, your construction costs will depend on the size of the garage, building materials, and interior finishes and amenities you choose. For example, building a stone or brick garage will cost you more than building a wooden garage. If you add heating and cooling, insulation, and windows, your building costs will be more, but necessary if you plan to spend time working in the garage. There are a lot of variables that will impact the cost of building a new garage, but you can expect to spend $25,000 to $35,000 on an average size garage.

A new garage is a great home feature, but it’s a big project that requires the skills of a licensed, professional contractor. Check contractor leads in your area to find a contractor with knowledge and experience. Before you begin, consider your needs, budget, and style of your house. A garage is a large structure that will make a big impact on your home’s appearance and curb appeal. Talk to your contractor about advantages and disadvantages of both types of garages, building costs, material choices, and design options that will enhance your home and your lifestyle.

Update your Living Room on a Budget

While painting the walls is the most common budget-friendly way to drastically alter the appearance of the room, it is by far the only thing you can do. In fact, there are several things you can do to update your living room without breaking the bank.

living room photo living room_zpsqnxzmeqn.jpg

Paint Hardwood Floors
If your hardwood floors are long past their prime but you can’t, or don’t want to, put the cost into installing new flooring just grab some paint. Epoxy- or enamel-based paint can be applied to hardwood floors to change the entire look of the room. Using a light color will brighten up a room that is a bit dark, or you can create a diamond or stripe pattern with the help of painter’s tape.

Scour Thrift Stores and Flea Markets
Thrift stores and flea markets are treasure troves of unusual, vintage and fun items that can help transform any room without paying a huge price tag. Find some unique lamp shades and install them to breathe new life into your living room without actually having to buy new lamps. You would be surprised at what you can find at thrift stores, yard sales, estate sales and flea markets.

Don’t Forget the Ceiling
Most ceilings are easy to forget since they are usually a white color and not bothered with unless there is a problem. However, you can drastically improve the overall look of your living room by simply applying a coat of paint to the ceiling. For example, if you paint the ceiling a soft blue shade it will pull the eyes upward when entering the room and make the space feel more open and airy.

Make a Feature Wall
Get dramatic by making a feature wall and painting it a darker color, such as dark gray. For best results, make the area above built-ins – such as fireplaces – the feature wall to help draw attention to the focal point of the living room. Furthermore, you can use stencils to create patterns on the wall, floors or ceilings.

Add Pops of Color
Bright colors can be distracting if overdone, but it can also modernize the living room and bring life to a dull space. For example, add some bright decorative pillows that match your living room’s color scheme to bring a new, fresh and fun vibe to the room.

Wishing Prosperous and Peaceful 2017

Hello 2017. Time flies, we just celebrated new year and now almost two weeks has passed already. So, how was your 2016? I must say, I didn’t get everything I asked from Him but still thankful because other things happened unexpectedly. Just like when we went to HongKong  Disneyland last April 2016. This was not yet on my plan but it happened, out of the blue. My daugher was really happy and enjoyed everything in the happiest place on earth.  By the way, my second time and daughters’ first in this place.  I’m still paying our airfare through my credit card and glad that I was able to pay it. My sisters helped us as well in order Disneyland HK  happened.

Well not all beautiful things happened last year, I had a little problem with my health but it wasn’t serious. I believe everything is fine now.

For this year, I hope everything will be fine. I hope our family will have a prosperous new year and good health for everyone. I wrote things that I wanted to happen for this year, hoping I could accomplish everything through the help of God above and of course actions from me. Oh well, happy new year everyone, let us give Him thanks for everything and for we are living in this world. May we all have a prosperous and peaceful 2017.

How to Find New Friends Who Love Sports

Finding new friends can be hard, especially as an adult. Between a busy career and a demanding home life, social lives can be relatively limited. As friends are lost throughout the years, it’s not hard for someone to find that they no longer have a large social circle; rather, they have one or two friends who they may rarely socialize with. Since sports are a common interest among many people, it is one of the best subjects (and hobbies) to build new friendships upon.

Online Fantasy Leagues
For the busiest of people, it might be impossible to make time for a social life outside of the office and home. Thousands of online relationships are born through fantasy leagues, such as fantasy football or fantasy baseball. These incredibly fun sports games take place entirely online. As friendships with other players blossom, one can quickly find themselves with a whole new group of online friends that he or she can talk to when the need for socialization strikes. Online relationships can become incredibly deep, contrary to what many believe.

Purchasing Tickets to Games and Tournaments
The number one place to find fellow sports fans is at popular games and tournaments. Crowds are drawn from far and wide to watch their teams win after an exciting competitive show. One of the most intense and exciting sports, hockey, has some of the most lively fans in the sports world. If someone is a huge fan of hockey tournaments Boston MA is always able to put on a wonderful show. Hockey is most commonly played where the winters are cold and the ice stays frozen. This makes New England a hot place for the best hockey games in the country.

Visiting a Local Sports Bar
For many, there is nothing more relaxing than a simple ice-cold beer after work. Except for having that beer at a sports bar, that is! Sports fans can catch up on the latest game after work, allowing them to relax and wind down before going home to their families for the night. There are always like minded individuals in these places, offering some fun social banter before leaving. These chatty beginnings may develop into deep long-term friendships, as well.

Sports are a great way to bond with new people, whether one is playing them or simply enjoying them from afar. The games are fun to watch, the excitement boosts the spirit and soul, and game day chat is not in short supply!

Christmas Tree 2016

Hello December, why time is running so fast? So, unlike the previous years, we set our Christmas tree this year just few days ago. Before we did it right after All Souls Day but this year is different. It is not we don’t feel Christmas yet but I think we are just lazy to do it. Our christmas tree is huge, not sure though if it is 10 feet tall, but ours almost reach the ceiling.     

So, last Dec. 3 we finally set it. Just like last year, the colors were combination of red and gold. We used the old ornaments but we add more balls. My mother bought bigger balls this time. As i said our xmas tree is tall so i think bigger ornaments are better. Last year we put big star on top but for this year we changed it just like what we saw in one of the malls here. 

So this is it, our christmas tree for this year’s Christmas 2016. How about you? Have u set your christmas tree already? I bet the answer is yes. Advance Christmas greetings from my family to yours. May we all have a  merry and joyous Christmas celebration.
