Ugly

I love the lyrics of this song..so I want to share it to my dear readers.. The song will play shortly.

"UGLY"
When I was 7
They said I was strange
I noticed that my eyes and hair weren't the same
I asked my parents if I was OK
They said you're more beautiful
And that's the way they show that they wish
That they had your smile
So my confidence was up for a while
I got real comfortable with my own style
I knew that they were only jealous cos
People are all the same
And we only get judged by what we do
Personality reflects name
And if I'm ugly then
So are you
So are you
There was a time when I felt like I cared
That I was shorter than everyone there
People made me feel like life was unfair
And I did things that made me ashamed
Cos I didn't know my body would change
I grew taller than them in more ways
But there will always be the one who will say
Something bad to make them feel great
People are all the same
And we only get judged by what we do
Personality reflects name
And if I'm ugly then
So are you
So are you
(Repeat 2 times)
Everybody talks bad about somebody
And never realises how it affects somebody
And you bet it won't be forgotten
Envy is the only thing it could be
Cos people are all the same(The same, the same)
And we only get judged by what we do(What we do, yeah, yeah)
Personality reflects name
And if I'm ugly then(Yeah, you)
So are you
So are you
People are all the same(Oh, oh, oh)
And we only get judged by what we do(What we do, yeah)
Personality reflects name
And if I'm ugly then(Yeah, so are you)
So are you
So are you

I hope you enjoy the song. I find it so true what the chorus says in this song.. There are some people that says something about other people but little that you know that person who talk about others is just very insecure, jealous or hiding something much more smelly issues. =P

I'm Tweeting

Ok, after seeing it so many times on tv I finally sign up on twitter. Everyone is curious how it works and someone told me about it before it became popular. I kinda have an idea on how it works, I have so many profiles that it's hard to keep up so I am only choosing some. I am definitely keeping my friendster account because I have most of my friends and family there.

I am just excited to announce that I am finally on there =) I would love to get some followers there too! Here is my twitter site http://twitter.com/mcj008 I hope to see U there =)

What Marriage is Really About

I saw this on my friends post and thought I'd share it =)

This is such a cute story.

He ordered one hamburger, one order of French fries and one drink. Theold man unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half..He placed one half in front of his wife. He then carefully counted outthe French fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed onepile in front of his wife.

He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip and then set the cupdown between them. As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, thepeople around them kept looking over and whispering. You could tellthey were thinking, 'That poor old couple - all they can afford is onemeal for the two of them.'

As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table. Hepolitely offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old mansaid they were just fine - They were used to sharing everything.

The surrounding people noticed the little old lady hadn't eaten abite. She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally takingturns sipping the drink.

Again the young man came over and begged them to let him buy anothermeal for them.. This time the old woman said 'No, thank you, we areused to sharing everything.'

As the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with thenapkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who hadyet to eat a single bite of food and asked 'What is it you're waitingfor?'

She answered . . . . ..

(This is great)**********

Tough Times

As we go on with our journey we both know that there is going to be an easy time and hard time. Easy times are easily forgotten when the hard times comes along for it bruises and damage the relationship big time. Time for reality check without these hard times your relationship will prove nothing.

Now the question is until when can you endure these hard times? For as long as there is still love and both are willing to work things out. It won't hurt to ask yourself a questions and know exactly what you want. Communication and honesty plays a big role, by communicating and being honest to yourself and to each other is the key to make things a little easier when tough times comes around.


You may encounter people that will make you feel bad or awkward about what happened between you and your behalf but all I can say is "don't be bother by them". I'm not bother by them because I know what is the real truth between us and I know that we both don't care about them. One thing we can do when we are around them is just to be civil and that's it. Family is there, yes, but in the relationship there is no one else but the two of you.

I am not one to give a great advice the things I just mentioned are the things that I’ve learned and still learning throughout my journey in my own relationship.


We are both trying to get pass this bumpy road and I am sure that by the end of this, there will be a fruitful beginning.

The Warrior is a Child

I just wanted to share this great song to everyone. Please play the video on the bottom of my blog site and here is the lyrics. You can stop playing my blog muzik anytime for you to enjoy the video. It's located at the bottom right. Enjoy =)

The Warrior is a Child
By: Gary Valenciano
Lately I've been winning battles left and rightBut even winners can get wounded in the fightPeople say that I'm amazingStrong beyond my yearsBut they don't see inside of meI'm hiding all the tears
They don't know that I go running home when I fall downThey don't know who picks me up when no one is aroundI drop my sword and cry for just a while'Cause deep inside this armorThe warrior is a child
Unafraid because His armor is the bestBut even soldiers need a quiet place to restPeople say that I'm amazingNever face retreatBut they don't see the enemiesThat lay me at His feet
They don't know that I go running home when I fall downThey don't know who picks me up when no one is around I drop my sword and and cry for just a while 'Cause deep inside this armor the warrior is a child
They don't know that I go running home when I fall downThey don't know who picks me up when no one is aroundI drop my sword and look up for a smile 'Cause deep inside this armorDeep inside this armorDeep inside this armorThe Warrior is a Child

Angels through this Tough Times

Everyone knows that it's tough everywhere. It breaks my heart when I see all those sad stories on the news specially when it involve children, but when there is sad stories there is also a happy one. The good side of this tough times is people are reconnecting to each other and helping one another. Like this restaurant somewhere in the mainland that only accepts donation or they let people work for their food. Some dont mind to pay a little more just to help to keep the place open.

As for me, I am thankful each day for all the blessings that God gave me. I have a great family and we are all in good health. That is why I take this opportunity to help others when I know I can.

This morning when i saw the thread about Christie Cottage that she is ill, my initial reaction is to help and hope that she gets better. I don't personally know her and I think we met in Etsy chatroom several times before but I'm not sure if she remember. So everyone I am asking for you're help and support Christie of ChristieCottage she is ill and she doesn't have insurance.

25% off my sales will proceeds to her

and see the the forum thread if you have an etsy shop and would like to help
http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=6074107&page=2

We are asking for your prayers and help in any possible ways. In behalf of my fellow etsian we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. =)

Homemade Facial Mask

I used to be in the pageant and all that beauty contest back home. This is one of the secret I've learned from all those experience and I want to share it to everyone who agree and wants to try it. Egg white is the best facial mask, yes you've heard it right. This may sounds weird but this method is very effective. If you are wondering if there is any smell, there is none. Here's what you have to do.

After washing your face thoroughly beat the egg white until it is frothy and just apply it on your face and neck and leave it for 15 minutes then rinse with luke warm water. You can also add baby powder on the egg white before you put it on your face. That's just what I usually do but you can make the recipe even fancier.

For oily skin you can use a plain milk, rub it on and leave it dry for 15 minutes then rinse. It absorbs oil wonderfully!

Also here are some of the fancier recipe I found. Never try them yet but I will =)


For Normal/combination skin mix one egg and 1/2 cup cooked instant oatmeal and a teaspoon olive oil until smooth. Spread on your face and leave 15 min then rinse. I never tried this but it sounds good.

For dry skin, mix one egg yolk, one teaspoon honey and a teaspoon olive oil and some vitamin E oil if you have it. Smooth on and leave on for 15 min. , rinse in lukewarm water and pat dry.

Have fun if you are goin to try it. Trust me your face will feel clean and tight after doing this, you will feel like all the wrinkles are gone!

Chocolate is Good for You!

Now chocolate is more than just a treat. New studies shows that chocolate and its key ingredient, cocoa have some major health benefits. In its purest form, chocolate can lower blood pressure, help muscles recover from exercise, improve skin, provide antioxidants and even give us a thrill that rivals a passionate kiss.

However some (i will call them) health expert warns that this isn't license to binge. Dark chocolate is the best (which I love) but the kinds that has most health benefits---- has around 400 calories and if the bar has any nuts or caramel on it, it'll cost you more calorie-wise =)

Another german research study showed that a woman who drank a half a cup of enriched cocoa everyday for three months developed skin that was smoother and had more moisture. Furthermore, the women's skin was less scaly and red after it was exposed to ultraviolet light.

Isn't that great!? Well except for the calorie-wise.

The best thing to do is savor a small piece of a really good chocolate and enjoy. ^_~

Featured Etsy Artist

LaurieSarahGems

I started out just a normal starving college kid, making string friendship bracelets to buy my next meal. But once you enter the world of jewelry, there is no way out. Before I new it I was buying more beads. And more... Then someone sold me my first gemstones. I was hooked. Then I was introduced to a diamond setter (the best they said). I began designing and creating dream pieces for my clients and my diamond setter would "make it happen". But when my husband was diagnosed with cancer, my jewelry business came to a screeching halt. I took care of him for the next few years. His untimely death left me with 3 small children to feed. I decided I would start up the jewelry business again, but this time it was sink or swim. I contacted my diamond setter and we began working hard together... and talking... turns out he was single... Out of the darkest time of my life a new rose sprung up. This last July, we were married. Now, together, we have joined forces to bring you everything you can imagine in the world of gemstones. To see some of our work, please visit our other Etsy shop:
LaurieSarahDesigns.etsy.com

Enjoy, and welcome to the fabulous, colorful world of gemstones.
