If you’ve ever entertained plastic surgery, we don’t need to remind you that asking lots of questions is a natural part of the process. But sitting down to think through the timing and the experience you’re signing up for is at least as important as your ultimate results. Before any kind of elective surgery, here’s a good place to start.

1. “Can I commit to recovery?”

Whether it’s tummy tuck, breast augmentation, or even a particularly deep laser treatment, it’s essential that you fully understand what the recuperation entails. Can you afford — financially and otherwise — to take a week or more off from work? Are you prepared to give yourself the rest you need, and are you OK with taking time away from the gym? You should also be comfortable handing over housework and other responsibilities to a friend or family member while your body heals, since you may be prohibited from heavy lifting, bending, or exerting yourself for some time after surgery.
Dr. Robert Cohen, a plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, recommends that patients have someone at home with them during the first 24 hours after any major surgery, such as breast augmentation. Get the full picture from your surgeon prior to scheduling your surgery, so that you can put together a recovery plan of action and be fully prepared.

2. “What’s my 5-year plan?”

You don’t need to have your long-term plans hammered out in great detail (after all, who does?), but it’s a good idea to have a rough idea of how your results will fit into your future — and whether you will still be glad you made the decision to undergo surgery in the first place.
Are you typically on the impulsive side? Are you prone to indecision? Are you basing your surgery on a fleeting trend, rather than your own personal goals? Take some time to really think about why you want to have surgery, and make sure the reason is still one you’ll be happy with in the years to come.

3. “Is everyone on board?”

Plastic surgery is a personal decision that is solely yours to make. But just like any other major event in life, it’s a lot easier to get through it when you have a strong support system. Before pursuing plastic surgery, you’ll likely need to have some serious conversations with your partner, your family, and maybe even your primary care doctor.
For one thing, with the cost of a typical breast augmentation inching toward $10,000, this isn’t a purchase you’ll want to make in secret. And elective surgery is still surgery, so if you have any ongoing health issues, it’s a good idea to get the green light from your regular doctor first.

4. “What do I need from a surgeon?”

Choosing a plastic surgeon is a bit different from choosing a dentist or a primary care doctor. Your insurance company isn’t going to cover it (except in a few specific circumstances) — but that also means they won’t be interfering or limiting your choices, so you’re free to shop around.
While finding a surgeon with the right credentials, like board certification, is objectively important, other factors are a matter of personal preference. For example, do you want a surgeon who talks to you like a BFF, or a serious doctor who’s all business?
It’s OK to be uncertain of what you want, especially if you’re still beginning the process. Schedule a few consultations with qualified doctors near you, so you can get a feel for the different “styles” out there and start narrowing down your options. Once you find the right fit, you’ll know it.

Sometimes I remember something better when I’ve written it down, and yes, my iPhone reminders go off and I am reminded that it’s time to make or take a call, but I like the beauty of being able to take a look at a week across a couple of pages. Not to mention when the calendar book is stylish and cute it makes it that much more fun to carry around and open up and jot down thoughts.

When you’re a mom on top of running a business you also need to keep track of things you need to get done with and for your kids– you can’t miss a soccer game, trick or treating, reminders are everything when you need to keep appointments, make deadlines and never miss an important date.

That’s why I love MomAgenda, the daily planners are stylish and pretty, they are made for mothers who are busy and have schedules to run, dates to keep and who want to carry these pretty planners with them so that important thoughts and notes get written down as opposed to saved in a smart phone. I love my day planner.

So, HandPicked is a reality.

The first box went out in September and was very well received. I am so excited to be doing this. It’s very early yet to tell if this will truly take off, but I am hoping it will.

My subscriber base is miniscule, so if you like what you see I urge you to try the box, you’ll be happy you did.

I really want this venture to be a success. I would LOVE your feedback in the comments below if you have input, criticisms, anything at all, please share it with me (that’s what comments are for).

To those of who who subscribed thank you for your support. Thanks for giving a newby a chance, I will not disappoint you, I am truly excited about this journey, and can’t wait to show you what I’ve got with more tremedous beauty products to come. To those of you who are just now hearing about the box, I hope you’ll decide to give it chance!

The price of the box is fair, I seriously thought about this for a long time prior to pricing, the products in the blog are going to continue to be high end brands, and it’s costly to keep that up therefore I have to be able to support providing the products that I love, so that you can receive something of value. The price of the box is $39.99 plus $5.95 for shipping. As you will see from a few reviews that the box has received to date (yay! I am so excited!) it has been well received.  So, the first box was a success!!!

The box was reviewed by Elizabeth Foust of Everything & Nothin (I enjoy her blog, and I’m so excited that HandPicked is in it!). Read Elizabeth’s review here. Thanks so much Elizabeth for your kind review, I am so happy that the box was to your liking. HandPicked also received a review from Justine Maresca of My Subscription Depictions – her review was also a great review for the box.  Read Justine’s review here. Thank you ladies for your lovely write ups.

Follow HandPicked on Twitter so that you can read more of the buzz about the box, and there has been a bit more buzz, in terms of Instagram and other photos and small videos.

You can subscribe on the blog– just click on the “Buy the Box” link at menu bar the top of the page. Or here.

If you are a blogger and would like to review the box on your blog and social media channels, please leave a comment in the comments section and I will reach out to you. I would really love a few additional reviews to help get the word out. I am currently offering a subscription at an editor’s rate and I will send you information about how to subscribe as an editor.

One more thing, the boxes were appropriate for the enclosed product, so thank you to Boxup for printing them– I’m quite happy with how they turned out, for the budget that I have to work with. And thanks to Sitckermule for the personalized stickers with the HandPicked logo, which added a little something more to the packaging. I’m quite happy with the way the box looks.

Thank you for reading. Come back to the blog for more updates soon.

HandPicked

I started my own business, and I am very excited! I hope you will be too; I want to tell you all about it. It’s a monthly beauty subscription box, and I think it will be perfect.

Please help me spread the word, and share this post on your blog, social media channels and any and all other means; I would appreciate it.

So, why a beauty subscription box? Especially when there are already a number of beauty subscription boxes out there.

My story

From a young age I have been obsessed with beauty products. An early-ish memory of mine is shopping for skincare products at Bloomingdale’s with my mother. I watched her buy a heck of a lot of creams, makeup, etc. and I fell in love with the experience! Ever since then I couldn’t wait to buy these products for myself! And when the time came… Let’s just say it’s been a wild journey since then. I have tried so many products (many of which have been featured here on the blog) others I have yet to tell the story about. I would like to tell the story of my beauty picks with this monthly subscription box.

If you subscribe, you will begin a journey with me to discover some of the wonderful beauty products that exist. Some you may already know and love, others you will be pleased (I hope!) to discover.

I invite you to discover my beauty picks!

About the box:

Each box will contain 5 full size beauty products, and will ship monthly. The charge will be $39.99 (plus the shipping cost). The value of the box will be up to $150.

The first box will go out in late August early September. I will be setting up a page on the blog to take orders. In the meantime if you are interested in the box please leave me your contact information in the comments below and I will reach out to you.

I would love to hear your thoughts, in fact I invite you to please share them with me by leaving a comment below! I’d love to hear any questions you might have. And hope I will have your support with this endeavor. I am forever grateful.

Thank you for reading and I hope you will join me in my journey with this box.

Stay tuned as I will be posting a picture of the customized box next week, and more details to follow.

Update:

Buy the box here.

There comes a time when our kids grow up and they go to college, when your kids go to college you will want to consider their living arrangements– I have the perfect example of a place that offers great living arrangements for university students. This is in Canada close to Simon Fraser University, this are offers nice housing for university students close to the school. When your children are away, going to a university not close to home, you will want them to have a place that they can call home, away from home– the home that you as a family built for them, a place for comfort, relaxation, a place to unwind and go home to.

Canadian University Real Estate prides itself in providing homes for students. Visit their site to discover real estate near Simon Fraser University. This site offers detailed listings near this university, their prices and some helpful information about the town, its streets, and neighborhoods so that your child and you can learn, ahead of time, what is available to your child, when they are away at school, as far as dining and entertainment so that they are able to build a life for themselves in the college town.

So, real estate in the location of your child’s university is a good investment. In order to find such a place you will need a guide and Canadian University Real Estate can be your guide with a website that offers a wealth of information that you will need to help you make a decision about where your child should live. It will help you prepare in advance of your travel there what you would like to see, do and a home for your child. It really is a benefit to parents to have sites like this with such a wealth of information available.

Minor surgeries are becoming increasingly common with the use of laser technology, however not everyone is comfortable with them. In this article we discuss snoring treatment without surgery.

 

Beyond an elbow to a rib or separate sleeping arrangements, treatment for snoring is typically thought of as a surgical endeavour. And yet the truth is there are treatment alternatives for snoring problems available that do not require surgical treatment and they are not that hard to come by.

What Causes Snoring?

One of the main causes for snoring that can wake you or your partner throughout the night is the vibration of loose soft tissue in the back of your mouth and throat.

 

Over time, snoring can become responsible for a host of other problems; a lack of sleep can reduce immunity to combat illness, reduce wakefulness during the day which can be a dangerous prospect in day to day life, and even wreak havoc on an otherwise healthy relationship.

 

Surgical Treatment for Snoring

Treating a snoring problem with a surgery often seems too invasive for many, and results are not guaranteed. Some of the surgical treatments for snoring include;

 

  • cutting out “excess” soft tissue
  • correcting “abnormally shaped” septum or nostril wall
  • change position of bone structures in upper airway
  • plastic cylinder implants

 

Anuvulopalatopharyngoplasty is the surgical procedure which consists of cutting out excess nasal soft tissue, and this is done with stainless steel or laser.

Radiofrequency palatoplasty is a procedure that uses electrical current to shrink up and stiffen (cook?) the rear part of the roof of your mouth so they no longer vibrate when breathing during sleep.

Enlarged tonsils or adenoids can be removed surgically all for the sake of a good night’s sleep.

And the list goes on; and if these options sound unnerving, you’re not the only ones. Hundreds of thousands of couples suffer through the snores of one or both people in a bed at night because these treatments seem far too over the top for them, and they are looking for a simpler, less intrusive way to treat snoring.

However there is a simple device which can make snoring a thing of the past, and it is not that hard to come by.

However there is a simple device which can make snoring a thing of the past, and it is not that hard to come by.

Stop Snoring without Surgery

In order to cease snoring altogether without any invasive surgeries, you will probably be pleased to know that a mandibular advancement splint can stop snoring, cold.

Mandibular advancement splint

A mandibular advancement splint is a type of mouth piece which is worn during sleeping hours to slightly adjust the placement of the jaw. This adjustment of the position of the jaw prevents snoring because the act of doing so tightens the muscles and surrounding soft tissue of the subject’s upper airway. So instead of electrifying or slicing out flesh in the back of your mouth, you can simply tighten the skin by changing its position for the same result –restful sleep without annoying your partner.

In addition to solving snoring problems, a mandibular advancement splint can also assist those with obstructive sleep apnoea (restricted breathing ability during sleep).

In Conclusion

Many workplace medical benefit packages will also repay part or all of the costs associated to a custom-made mandibular advancement splint, so be sure to speak with your HR department to see if your job will foot the bill.

 

Do you have any experiences with either surgical or non-surgical snoring treatment options? Let us know all about it in the comments!

Looking for the right dentist for your family can really be as lengthy as you’d like it to be; the more time you spend ticking off the criteria in this article, the more suited your dentist will be for your family. However, if you’re in a rush it’s a matter of doing a local Google search and popping in to a few offices in your area to see what they’re all about.

This article is for the former; those who are willing to dig a little deeper to find the right family dentist. These folks realise that a relationship with a family dentist gold coast is a long term one, and they’d like to ensure that they’ve settled on one that has their best interests at heart. And the only way to know that is to learn as much as possible about your prospective family dentists while sharing a little with them about the unique needs of your family.

What to Look for in a Family Dentist

  1. Office Hours

Ensuring that your dentist has office hours which fit your schedule is often a deal breaker; families usually are required to have their appointments outside of the 9 to 5, and the right family dentist will understand this by being open as late as even 9pm.

  1. They’re Great with Kids

A good family dentist realises that a trip to the dentist has the potential to either traumatise a child for life, or make them fearless. Showing your children that there is nothing to fear is as easy as understanding how a child thinks; making the dentist fun with creative motifs, sunglasses, and earphones to watch a movie or play a video game while they’re sitting in the dentist chair, or positive reinforcement when they have no cavities –all contribute to lowering the anxiety levels children often associate to having their teeth drilled. Dental procedures may not be fun, but a good dentist knows how to make this fact of life bearable and even a little fun.

  1. Certifications

In addition to convenience and being great with your little ones, a good family dentist will be educated well. Having their certifications from well-known institutions is a must, and so if their ability to perform specific anaesthesia.

Anaesthesia can make or break the ease your child feels for the more advanced procedures they will need to undertake in their young little lives, and having a dentist that is properly certified to perform these is key.

  1. No Fine Print

Transparency is also another key factor in finding the right dentist for your family; surprises should be reserved as positive ones (look ma, no cavities!) and not underhanded hidden fees when you get your invoice.

 

Are fees and procedures clearly outlined?

  1. No Unnecessary Procedures

This is a big one; some unscrupulous dentists will fill and re-fill and re-fill a problem tooth to get the maximum billings out of a stressed out parent. Have a discussion about how your dentist will proceed with problem tooth situations such as cavities, root canals, and the like before you make a commitment.

In Conclusion

There are plenty of things to consider when you are looking for a good family dentist and we know we’ve just begun to “drill down” into them. We didn’t want our article to get too long in the tooth! Have anything to add? We’d love to hear from you in the comments. Feel free to leave your best dentist puns, too.

You would think that hiring a professional wedding photographer would be a no-brainer decision, but this isn’t always the case. Sometimes couples want to try and spend as little as possible on their big day and try to find alternatives. Some of these so-called alternatives typically land up having friends or family take the photos instead of hiring a pro.

Any wedding and engagement photography team believes that not hiring professionals is a complete recipe for disaster.

If you want a stunning photo shoot, here’s why you should hire a professional photographer.

  1. A Professional Will Be Committed to You

A professional will be completely dedicated to you on your special day. You can check photo galleries like Rachel and Luke’s engagement shoot and you’ll be amazed to see what professionals are capable of.

Speaking of a professional’s commitment, they’re guaranteed to show up when they need to, unlike friends who risk the chance of just not showing up or flaking out of the responsibilities they offered to help with in the first place. When you pay and hire a professional, they are obligated, by contract, to carry out the duties you’ve hired them to perform.

  1. A Professional Has Experience

What’s worse than having someone hanging around on your wedding day who doesn’t know what to do next? Hiring an experienced photographer will help lessen those stress levels. They’ll also have experience with doing things a certain way, so you don’t need to worry about much guesswork when planning your wedding. The last thing you want to do is try to figure out what poses a friend should be shooting.

      3. A Professional will Deliver Awesome Results

In other word, you’re going to get what you pay for. A professional photographer will make sure you get great results.

      4. You Don’t Need To Worry About Straining a Relationship

When you work with a professional, like the Studio 4 Photography team, you build a relationship with them. When you hire a friend, you risk straining that friendship. They may end up holding a grudge against you for asking them to work for free or very little, or you may be unhappy with the results and just not be able to tell them.

      5. You Want Your Friends and Family to Enjoy The Wedding

If they’re truly great friends, you’ll be more worried about them being at the wedding and enjoying it, right? Rather leave the hard work to the pros.

Conclusion

One thing about weddings is that it seems so common for so-called friends who “do weddings” to suddenly pop up when a couple get engaged. What a coincidence it is that you have friends who photograph weddings and DJ and a whole lot of other things, right? But it’s important to make an informed decision when people offer to help you with your wedding.

Skip the risk of losing friends and falling out and hire a professional photographer who will have your best interests at heart and will go above and beyond to ensure your special day is captured in a very special way.
