Adding Details To Your Scrubs

Just because you have to wear scrubs to work doesn't mean that you can't look stylish while you're in them. There are quite a few ways that the scrubs that you wear can flatter your appearance so that you look professional and friendly while you're helping patients or performing other tasks. You can click here for pictures and other details about the types of scrub designs that are available and how you can add accessories to enhance your look.

When you're looking for scrubs to purchase, you need to find a set that complements your body. Don't get scrubs that are too loose because they could fall while you're moving around during the day. However, you shouldn't get scrubs that are too tight on your body because it will usually be uncomfortable to move around. Tight scrubs can also be too revealing, which isn't a professional look for the healthcare industry or other fields that you work in, such as a daycare. Try on a few different scrub styles, such as tops with a V-neck or pants with a drawstring, to get the best fit for your body that will allow you to be comfortable while working.

Find out if it's alright with your employer to add accessories to your scrubs. You could decorate your stethoscope or wear a headpiece that keeps your hair in place while you're working. Some of the accessories that you can add could enhance the safety for yourself and the people you work with while other accessories are worn just to enhance the look of your wardrobe.

If you have tattoos or piercings, they are sometimes frowned upon in a workplace where you wear scrubs. You can wear a lab coat over your scrubs to hide your tattoos. Remove any jewelry except for a pair of earrings as long as they are suitable for the job. If you don't want to wear a lab coat, then wear a shirt with long sleeves under your scrub top to hide your tattoos. Your shoes complete your wardrobe. You can find comfortable shoes to wear with scrubs that provide the support you need for being on your feet all day that are decorative as well, such as bright colors or patterns.

Samar Trip!

This is an overdue blov post about my Samar visit with my cousin.

Its been a while since I visited my younger sister in her place mainly because it is her and her family who usually come fod a visit. When my cousin's wife invited me to their fiesta celebration I grab the opportunity to accept her invitation and at the same visit my younger sister to attend the first birthday of my nephew.

The visit to my cousin's place was a blast. I met some of my relative from my father side. I really knew few of them since I seldom visit the place where my father came from. So everytime I met a new relative I feel good and excited. How wish I could stay long to have longer chitchat with them.

Me and the celebrant

Like I mentioned I will also attend my nephews first birthday. The celebration was simple. My sister invited some relatives and friends. I also had a blast.

FYI! My sister found out about the mistake in my nephews age when she geg home. So we tried to fix it yet we still failed to do so as we forgot to change the "th" to "st" hahahaha..

From Studenthood To Adulthood - Financial Tips You Need To Know


Pexels 

Your financial attitudes often develop and become wiser as you age. During the frugality of student life coupled with the pressure to socialize, eat well and treat yourself with the things you enjoy, you may become accustomed to a financial mode of living which generates certain attitudes. Students are notoriously broke as they fight to gain their qualifications, and sometimes this can culminate in bad habits.

However, the temperance exercised as a student can also have impacts on financial behaviors once adulthood is reached. It’s important to iron out the kinks as soon as you graduate, and become wiser with your financial independence. Many students rely somewhat on the bank of Mom and Dad in their college years, yet once they find a job that could become less justifiable. For these reasons, it’s important to keep on top of your daily financial attitudes by seeing where they originate, and in the process take useful steps to improving them.

Without further ado:

Loans & Debt 

In the student years, it’s likely that you took out a maintenance loan or a payday loan to cover excess costs. As you age, this can become a bad habit. Not only that, but taking on these loans in your student years could have saddled you with debt, and so setting yourself up with your finances is already on the backfoot as soon as you begin your independent life. Debt is a fact of life. Taking out a credit card and making purchases on it will place you in a temporary form of debt, as will taking on any form of a financed deal such as a car loan or telephone contract. It’s important to know how to manage these.

Always stay communicative with your creditors, and never take out a loan you are unable to pay back comfortably in the correct amount of time. If you’ve had issues with debt and you wish to resolve it before you continue with your financial freedom, consider embarking on a debt recovery program such as those offered by debtreliefprogram.co a service which lays out the remedy step by step. These attitudes developed in your youth can help you identify issues and practice forethought before making financial mistakes in future.

Peer Pressure 

While spending socially is a hallmark of the student years, as an adult it’s much wiser to forgo short-term pleasures for long-term investments. Doing so can give you an excellent opportunity to acquire the goods and services you want without having to worry in the slightest. Peer pressure will become less important to you as you age, but only if you practice not caring what people think, and sacrificing SOME social time and frivolous spending to acquire something substantial and rewarding instead.

No Shame In Savings 

While rifling through the local newspaper, or signing up to coupon websites could be considered ‘uncool’ from a teenager/young adult, spending a little effort in this direction can give you plentiful savings during your grocery or maintenance costs. Don’t be afraid to shop around for your service providers, and never underestimate the importance of an angry (yet reasonable,)  phone call to a customer service department. As you get older, you will become more adept in identifying a bad deal, and better at weeding those issues out. However, this will only happen if you take your savings seriously. The further you can stretch your funding, the higher your quality of living will be.

With these tips, you can be sure to enjoy solid financial attitudes which will treat you well for life.

Property Enhancements for New Homeowners

Buying a home is a huge accomplishment that many people strive to achieve throughout early adulthood, and reaching this goal is incredibly satisfying. However, once a house has been purchased, many new homeowners begin thinking about the type of property improvements that they should make. Because there are an almost limitless number of options, it is often a good idea to narrow it down to those that are most feasible.

Outbuildings and Storage

Depending on how much room a homeowner has on his or her property, outbuildings may or may not be a possibility. Those with a great deal of land may want to build a barn or storage shed to ensure that they have somewhere to keep the lawnmower and the other tools necessary for those who take pride in maintaining their property. However, homeowners with limited space may wish to consider a smaller structure; metal storage sheds often meet a homeowner's needs, and they are a friendly option for those with space constraints.

Sidewalks and Driveways

Any path that can be used on foot or in a vehicle could loosely be considered a sidewalk or a driveway, but formalizing the situation is far more attractive. From pouring concrete to installing decorative stonework, it is possible to create those paths that welcome family and friends.

Outdoor Security Measures

Once a property belongs to an individual, he or she typically has a strong interest in maintaining its security. One of the best security measures that a property owner can take involves installing fencing around its perimeters; this is also an excellent to corral dogs and children who play in the yard. Flood lights will also provide an extra layer of security to a property, and are often a good choice for those seeking cost-effective protection.

Attractive Landscaping

Ponds, rocks, hedges, gardens and a host of other landscaping tricks can be used to enhance the beauty of any outdoor space. Whether homeowners design and install the landscaping themselves or they leave it to the professionals, it is a great way to turn a newly purchased house into a home.

Improvements Increase Value

The overall value of a home and the property on which it sits is determined by a great many factors, and improvements increase that value. Little, new touches may raise the amount that the house is worth when the time comes to sell it.

Save Change

Those few extra cents that you have had in your purse for however long will soon mount up if you put them in a jar. A great way of doing this is if you spend $0.69 cents out of a dollar, put the remaining $0.31 in a jar to save for a rainy day. Round up to the nearest dollar each time you spend something in cash and put the remainder of it away. You’ll be surprised at how much you have accrued even after a short period of time.

Get A Credit Card 

Even if you’ve got bad credit, you’re still able to apply for a credit card. There are many different types of credit cards that you can apply for, and there’s different types for certain situations. For example, if you travel a lot then getting a credit card that rewards you with points to spend on flights will help you no end. Best.creditcard offers many different types of credit cards for you to look at, and choose the best one for your needs. Of course, it shouldn’t be used as an excuse to spend money unwisely, but having a credit card available for those times when it matters is extremely useful.

Abolish Unnecessary Spending

There’s a chance that you’re currently paying for something you use very little, if at all. Things like a TV service or a subscription to a magazine that you wouldn’t miss if it wasn’t around are great examples of things that you could get rid of. Pay a visit to your bank a6nd go through everything that’s going out of your bank, then abolish anything you no longer need or want. Not only will this free up some of your money, but it will allow you to begin saving for times that you need some extra cash quickly.

Be More Self Sufficient

Growing your own vegetables, and collecting rainwater in water butts so you can water your garden are key examples of how you can become self sufficient. It might be an idea to make the investment into having solar panels installed on your home so that you’re cutting your electric bill. Sometimes it pays to spend money on things like this. Solar panels will pay for themselves within a year of purchase, and are super environmentally friendly. Try these four ideas and begin supporting yourself financially today. Remember, sometimes you have to spend money to make money, so consider all of your options carefully.

Ophthalmologist Visit

I cannot remember good if it was three or two weeks ago when I found out something is growing in the white part of my eyes (close to my nose) close to edge of the cornea. At first I didnt mind it but I notice that is it growing. When I told my boyfriend about it he urge me to visit an opthalmologist. So off I go.

Opthalmologist Findings: 

PINGUECULA

A pinguecula (pin-GWEK-yoo-lah) is a yellowish, slightly raised thickening of the conjunctiva on the white part of the eye (sclera), close to the edge of the cornea. It a non-cancerous bumps.


CAUSES:


  • Ultraviolet radiation from the sun is the primary cause of the development of pingueculae. 
  • Dust and wind frequent exposure to dust and wind also appear to be one of the risk factors. 
  • Dry eye disease also may be a contributing factor and can promote the growth of pingueculae. 


 Pingueculae are more common in middle-aged or older people who spend a lot of time in the sun. But they also can occur in younger people and even children — especially those who are often outdoors without sunglasses or hats to protect their eyes from the sun's UV rays.

To decrease the risk of pinguecula, it's important to wear sunglasses outdoors even on overcast and cloudy days, because the sun's UV rays penetrate cloud cover. For the best protection, choose sunglasses with a wraparound frame design, which block more sunlight than regular frames.

The opthalmologist prescribed an eyedrop called Carbomer Artificial Lacrimal Fluid (Siccafluid). One drop on both of my eyes every three hours nonstop on waking hours. And also I will be wearing double vision eyeglasses soon.
