The Prince and the Pauper

prince-george-look-alike-baby     Truly an amazing fact! Prince George, who the public is eagerly following around, has found his “twin” amongst a hundred entries who entered a local Prince George look-alike contest.

Yes, an 11-month-old hailing from Essex has just won a national competition to find the best doppelganger to Kate and William’s offspring.  -Vanity Fair

And the resemblance is remarkable that I too found it really adorable, amazing, and a little scary at the least. But hey, whoever thought all babies look alike? They don’t ,but for the fun fact that your son can look like the royal couple’s own is an honor that no one can take away.   But when you think about it, who looks more like Prince George? Kate or William. You decide. Kate-George-William

Oral Care and Healthy Body

Having a healthy body starts from the inside, what you put into your mouth and how your oral care go will affect your body health as a whole.

We love eating and that is already given, whether just the need to survive or to satisfy our cravings. But never forget to take care of your mouth by brushing and flossing your teeth and scraping the tongue (as bacterias can hide beneath that cause bad breath) afterwards. Here’s why:

To understand how the mouth can affect the body, it helps to understand what can go wrong in the first place. Bacteria that builds up on teeth make gums prone to infection. The immune system moves in to attack the infection and the gums become inflamed. The inflammation continues unless the infection is brought under control.

Over time, inflammation and the chemicals it releases eat away at the gums and bone structure that hold teeth in place. The result is severe gum disease, known as periodontitis. Inflammation can also cause problems in the rest of the body. (source:

Swish mouthwash and breath spray

Additional oral care is by  gargling with mouthwash like Swish mouthwash, this is very useful if you are out of the house and need a quick fix to freshen your breath and at the same time killing germs and preventing bacterias from producing. If you are sensitive with alcohol, this is good for you since it’s alcohol-free there’s no tingling sensation when you gargle, just the fresh and cool feeling. It also has three flavors, the Peppermint fresh, Mangosteen mint, and Arctic chill.

For easy-to-carry and instant fresh breath after eating or smoking, there’s the Swish breath spray, it’s also alcohol-free and sugar-free.

What is beauty if you are unhealthy!

Clarins My Mini Treat

Still hooked up on the my winning entries with Alice’s Photo A Week Challenge, another prize that I got is the Clarins Paris My Mini Treat. Clarins


This mini treat is actually jammed with all the goodies anyone conscious on skin care would love to have. It includes Smoothing Brightening Night Cream which works on your skin while you sleep, a Brightening Hydrating Emulsion which protects your skin during the day specially since it also includes SPF 20, and a BB Cream with SPF 15. An all in one package that’s perfect for my skin care regimen.

I have had the chance to try out each one and I adore the night cream though I apply moderately just because I have oily skin to begin with. Then in the morning just before the foundation, I apply the Hydrating Emulsion then move onto the BB cream. This color though is much too bright for my skin that I use it together with my BYS Foundation in Tan just because its my summer color and it balances the bright BB cream that Clarins has to offer.

I highly recommend this BB cream for those with fair skin, and to use it on its own. I just double up to avoid looking like I am getting ready for Halloween. HAHA

I would be happy to hear from you. Let me know what your skin care regimen is and let’s share secrets!
