Tips for avoiding electrical hazards at home

Electricity is a commodity that everyone uses regularly. But it is not always used in a way that is safe. If you are not using electricity as you should there is a danger of electrocution or fire. You need to make sure that you are careful with the electrical supply and appliances in your home.

We are going to provide you with some tips on how to avoid electrical hazards in your home. Hopefully we can help you and your family avoid danger, and keep safe.
Making sure wiring is up to date and in good condition

One of the most important ways of avoiding danger from electricity is making sure the wiring in your home is up to date, and in good working order. In order to do this, you should have regular checks carried out by a qualified electrician. When you move into a new property you should find a reputable electrician in the area, as soon as possible. Doing so means that you not only have an electrician who will carry out checks and repair work for you, they are also more likely to be on hand if you need an emergency electrician, if you already have an established relationship with them.

The importance of not using electricity close to water

One of the biggest mistakes that people make, when it comes to danger from electricity, is having electricity sockets positioned too close to water, or using electrical appliances in close proximity to water. It's important to note that water and electricity do not mix. If you use electricity where there is water present, you are at increased risk of electrocution.

Why using electrical appliances with wet hands is not a good idea

As with using appliances close to water, you should also not use an electrical appliance if you have wet hands. This is something that many people are guilty of doing, when using a hairdryer to dry their hair after a shower. If you do this, you increase the chances of being electrocuted.

Knowing how to extinguish an electrical fire

If you experience an electrical fire in your home, you should never throw water on it. This is only likely to make the fire worse and you could end up electrocuting yourself. Electrical fires need to be extinguished using the correct fire extinguisher. If you do not have the correct fire extinguisher, or you do not feel confident putting out the fire, you should switch off the electricity supply, leave your home and call the emergency services.

Using extension cords in the right way

The first thing to say about extension cords is that they should only be used temporarily, not in the long term. You should also make sure that extension cords are fixed securely and that they are not overloaded.

If you pay attention to the tips we have provided, they should help you avoid electrical hazards in your home.

Does hypnosis work to quit smoking?

To a non-smoker, it seems easy to quit. Just don't smoke anymore. The reality is a lot more complicated, and the willpower needed to just "stop smoking". Deeply rooted behavior patterns, cravings and the physical symptoms that come from nicotine withdrawal are all part of the problem, and they are all aspects of quitting that can be addressed with hypnosis.

Hypnotherapists commonly offer programs for smokers, and there are various hypnosis downloads that can be found online as well.

Physical Symptoms
Firstly, there are the symptoms that come from your body's withdrawal from nicotine. The increased hunger or urge to snack (often leading to weight gain), fatigue, coughing and headaches are a few examples of how your body reacts when you quit. Believe it or not, hypnosis can help. Even physical complaints can be reduced with a "mind over matter" approach. If your thoughts are convinced that you're not hungry, or that your headache isn't very bad, then you will start to feel that way.

Mental Symptoms
How your mind and emotions react to the loss of nicotine is just as difficult as your body's reactions. Restlessness, anxiety, nervousness, irritability and even depression are all very common for smokers who are quitting. Using hypnosis to focus your thoughts elsewhere and to calm your stresses can make your quitting period much less frustrating.

Simple relaxation techniques and suggestions that you are not feeling anxious at all can go a long way to keep you on an even keel during this period.

Breaking the Habit
Aside from withdrawal itself, it can be very difficult to break with a long-standing routine in your mind. The act of going out for a smoke can be such an ingrained part of your day that it is as much of a draw as the cigarette itself, especially if there is a social component where friends or colleagues are doing the same. This is one of the easiest problems to ease with hypnotism. A simple suggestion that you don't want to smoke helps eliminate the habit.

In most cases, the craving you feel for a smoke is more rooted in the habit than the addiction. Once you create new (healthier) habits, you'll stop noticing the gap in your life very quickly. Hypnotism can help you keep your mind on other things, prompt you to chew gum or some other replacement activity each time you think about having a cigarette.

So on any of these 3 fronts; you can use hypnotic suggestion to change how you think and how you're feeling about smoking. It is not a magic wand, and it will not make it impossible for you to smoke. There does still need to be some effort on your part to leave the old habits behind. But if you have a strong enough desire to make it work, that helps the hypnotism work even better because it's your own thoughts that are the key. Forget the physical addiction, and focus on how your mind is the solution.

Starting Business At Home With Nu Skin Products

Earning a passive income is like the elusive fountain of youth that I have been searching for a long time now. I have tried dabbling in many fields before just to earn extra while I have my regular bread and butter. I sold handmade cards; tried my hand in buy and sell of branded and luxury bags, and I also offer my writing and logo branding services. Although not all of them bring in the money I want to make life easier for my family and for my retirement, I know that starting with Nu Skin can be a help to eventually lead to a business I can start from home.

What is Nu Skin?

Nu Skin is an American company established in the 1984 in Provo, Utah. It develops and sells personal care products and health and dietary supplements under the Pharmanex carrier brand. They operate using as a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) process just like other direct marketing companies like Forever Living Product, Royale, to name a few.

What are the products of Nu Skin?

The company carries many types of products geared for the over all well-being of an individual, from personal care to beauty and skin care products to oral care, anti-aging, spot treatments and health supplements including weight loss and health supplements.

What makes Nu Skin a business opportunity for everyone who wants to earn extra with little or no capital?

FREE SIGN-UP! Yes, you read that right. It is totally FREE and no-strings attached to join the team. Honestly, I have been in networking and direct marketing environment before but this is the first time I have encountered a FREE SIGN-UP.

The products are great. We all know that people will have varying reception on how the products affect them. However, Nu Skin lives on the motto of "all of the good, none of the bad." I have tried some of the products and my skin is loving them.

The wide selection of products to showcase is appealing for many demographics. You can either sell to young people who are after clearing their blemishes or sell to the middle-aged people who are trying to slow down the signs of aging or sell to the seniors who want to improve their whole health through the Pharmanex products and improve their skin conditions through the ageLoc products, and many more.

You can buy just one or two toothpastes to start of if you like to try the product and offer to your family and friends.

You can do this during your spare time and wherever you want as long as you have a wi-fi connection and social media account.

You get commissions as a Distributor when meeting regular requirements.  I won't go into that detail because I am more after retailing the products as I plan to build my own ecommerce site and offer the products from home, which is what this blog article is all about. Let's face it, not everyone is for MLM. There's nothing wrong with networking but others have preference and I respect that.

The company has been in the business for more than 2 decades so the quality of their products speak for that. I don't recommend products I don't trust; hence, I have only been with very few (actually, just 3!) direct marketing companies that I like and Nu Skin is one of them.

How to join so you can start up?

Joining Nu Skin is through sponsorship. And I can sponsor you and make you a part of a robust team who are driven and committed to improve their lives. How you make this work is totally up to you. You can be creative or traditional with your approach with direct marketing but at the end of the day, the success lies on you.

*****Ready to start your business? Email me to join so I can sponsor you. Email: mommaglama at yahoo dot com or you can leave your info in the comment below with a "YES I WANT TO JOIN." I will reach out to you shortly.*****

You may also purchase in the web; however, you will need my Sponsorhip/Distributor ID to be able to do that so you can enjoy the high-quality products of Nu Skin. Just comment with a "YES I WANT TO BUY" then leave your email so I can contact you.

Review - Nu Skin Liquid Body Lufra

I am an old school kid when it comes to exfoliating. I only use a loofah or a washcloth to rub my skin clean. Yes, I grew up doing that. I would use other brand of exfoliating scrub gel but it did not yield the same effect of Nu Skin Liquid Body Lufra.

I tried the product last week and I am happy with the results. The first time I tried it on my dry arm skin, it felt so nice with a bit of cool feeling on the skin. Once it was rinsed off, my skin was soft and smooth. And that was just one application.

The Nu Skin Liquid Body Lufra is a gentle exfoliation scrub that smoothens rough areas in your body like your elbows, knees, nape area, your back, and even your soles if you like!

(My initial try with the product. No filter. No photo editing. I just added captions.)

Key Ingredients:

Walnut husks—finely ground to exfoliate and remove dry, rough patches of skin.
Aloe vera—soothes and nurtures skin.
Humectants—attract moisture and prevent dryness during the exfoliation process.

The effects on other users:

The Lufra makes for a nice Mother's Day gift too if you want your mom or the queen of your life feel precious with skin so soft and smooth. It's a nice way to detox your skin while you relax after a long day. Your mom or the queen of your life will surely feel special when they try this.

You can order this product from me as this is exclusive to Nu Skin but can be sold to public consumers.

Message me for your orders at mommaglama@yahoo.com with the subject line Lufra order and I will get back to you with the payment methods, price and shipping cost (depending on your location / some countries does not allow any liquid products to be shipped).

For PHILIPPINES and UAE (Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the other Emirates) clients, please feel free to message me for your orders at mommaglama@yahoo.com.


We all could use some extra cash right now especially when the money's tight. You can become an Independent Distributor of Nu Skin without any cash out. No fees. No kits required.  Absolutely FREE SIGN UP. No catch on that, just you, earning your own extra through social media posts. Interested? Leave your email in the comment portion of email me as indicated above if you want to become a Distributor.

Gowns for Wedding Occasion

I will attend a wedding next year. I am quite excited because this is the first time I am going to act as a Principal Sponsor to my Godson. I have been the Godmother of my Godson during his Baptismal, and to stand as a Godparent who will fulfill the duties of being another parent is such an honor that I seriously take. It is not very often when someone is being asked to become their honorary mom twice. And I will take that as something special.

So, yes, I am in search for the perfect principal gown to wear for the big event next year. I have to physically prepare for it as I need to fit properly in the gown. I am searching the internet for inspiration with searches such as cheap bridesmaid dresses Australia to help me find the perfect one for me.

I saw plenty of dresses that I fancy in www.mubridal.com.au and I think I can actually find one that I can wear in the event. Being a principal sponsor is a big thing so I should dress to the nines!

Zipper-up Evening Lace Summer Bateau Spring All Sizes Floor-Length Dress

I found this one to suit my personality. I like how it flows and exudes sophistication without being over the top. And then I saw the wedding gowns too! Wow! I mean, my wedding gown was fabulous (thanks to my cousin who is a couturier!) but there are plenty of designs for wedding gowns now that are up-to-date and stylish just like this one:

This gown reminds me so much of my own wedding gown. One day, I'd like to see my daughter walk down the isle wearing a similar one, if not my own wedding gown. 

I have made my selections and will narrow down few months before the big day. I hope by then, I am a bit slimmer and fitter.
