Today is December, 9th. There are 16 days left till Christmas! :D
I think almost all people love this holiday, the day of wonders and presents (not only from our dearests and nearests, but from the desteny also, when all dreams may come true).
Christmas trees and decorations going up, houses and gardens aglow with lights and every time you look in the paper, turn on the TV or take a trip to the shopping centre. WoW!
Everything lets us know about the coming Christmas. I adore to do presents and going to do shoping as soon as possible!

So, the other day I read in the Internet that a new movie goes into production where Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman star there ("Australia"). Tourism promoters claim the real star of the movie is the country itself. The movie opens internationally on Nov. 26.
What is it about? The film follows the story of a noblewoman on a cattle drive in Australia during World War II. The movie was filmed largely in rugged Western Australia, notably in and around the small town of Kununurra, a three-hour flight north of Perth, and in the California-sized Kimberley wilderness region.
As the director of the film said, that tourism numbers will rise after the movie would be released.

There are several rules how to cure yourself from worries:
- Challenge your negative beliefs.
- Learn to accept uncertainty. Just be yourself :)
- Name your fear.

For example, my dad, when he feels ill, always uses the phrase "I'm under the weather... Uff"
But the origins of the term is not related to cold weather at all. In fact, "under the weather" is a saying with a nautical background. Sailors and passengers on ships would get ill or seasick during their journey. Sick passengers were ordered to go below deck, which was believed to be the most stable part of the ship as well as a shelter from the weather. This was to ensure a speedy recovery from whatever was ailing them.
So, it’s no matter what profession you have, you use this phrase as a synonym for being ill. But it means also "being intoxicated" :D

So, I advise her to apply no annual fee cards. As these plastics can be:
- a great way of saving money,
- very convenient to make payments,
- helpful to economize.

I decided to make a little research about the story behind "God Bless You". And I found out some interesting facts. Actually, there are several different theories behind why this commonly used phrase is said in reaction to a sneeze.
- One tale dates back to the time when an outbreak of Bubonic Plague hit Rome during medieval times and in 590 [A.D.], Pope Gregory I ordered the citizens of Rome to pray to fend off an outbreak of the Bubonic Plague and since people of the day thought a sneeze was a symptom of the plague, they would say 'God Bless You' to the sneezer.
- Another story tells us that there is a superstition that when one sneezes, his heart stops. Saying "God Bless You" is believed to make the sneezer return to life or make his heart continue to beat. Funny:D
- The positive explanation states that sneezing helps cleanse the body of evil spirits.
- The negative states that sneezing is a bad sign. "People used to believe that your soul was thrown from your body during a sneeze."
So, "God bless you!" if you sneezed. Take care!

I hope it's not boring.
Ok, I'm looking forward to watching it one day.

A friend of mine who is waiting for a baby, offered me to join her at this activity and I agreed. It's nice to find that the majority of people (old and young, pregnant and not, slim and with full weight) are interested in yoga. Moreover, there's also a baby yoga for newly-born children. Nice!!
All this inspired me to look at the world and my health with new feelings.

To say that I liked the musical, it's to say nothing! I fell in love with the music, ABBA songs as well as the playing of the actors. And now I admit that I'm an ABBA fan. The musical's plot is also rather unique and funny. And Pierce Brosnan, he showed himself as a real star who really made the movie funny. Moreover, the songs and the actors' voices make the simple story a fun watch through. The body movements and expressions makes the songs look as if they were real exchanges between the actors.
So, Mamma Mia really captures me and left unforgettable impressions.

I visited my stylist who is rather professional in it. The process can be of three types: relaxation, thermal reconditioning and brazilian hair treatment. It was interested to know that the ralaxation is a very good treatment for naturally curly-haired people and it takes only an hour while the result of it can last from three to six months. Isn't it great? But the only minus of it, perhaps, is that some relaxers can pose potential concerns like skin irritation and hair damage, including breakage and dryness.
The second opportunity to straighten hair is thermal reconditioning, also known as Japanese straightening, involves a combination of chemicals and heated irons. The process affects hair cuticles, making hair straight and shiny. Though chemicals remain on the hair for about 20 to 25 minutes, thermal reconditioning takes four hours from start to finish. That’s because the stylist irons your hair in tiny sections (a quarter of an inch at a time). After the process, hair can stay straight for six to 10 months. WoW! But thermal reconditioning poses several safety risks. Specifically, some women who've had this treatment suffered hair damage or even hair loss.
And the third method is is a newer straightening technique that’s become very popular, because it works well with many hair types. It's the so-called "Brazilian Hair Treatment " under the brand of Brazilian Keratin Treatment, Brazilian Blowout and Brazilian Hair. This treatment takes one and a half to four hours.
Weighing all the pros and cons of the methods I desided to try the first one: Relaxars (as I'm still afraid of doing experiments with my hair).

This incident made me think about my card protection itself. Being a shopping addict and credit card spending lover I addressed to CREDIT LAND to learn more about it. They advised me to use their programs. There are some services that allow access to a three-in-one credit report but unfortunately it's only for a charge (and it's pointless).
So, the best way out is to monitor transactions activity myself or check my bank monthly statements.

Russia is rather far from the US but the sorrow of the tragedy is very close to my heart...
A small Russian city that is near the Ural mountains became famous all over the world at one moment: passenger jet traveling from Moscow to the Ural Mountains city of Perm crashed while preparing to land early Sunday, killing all 88 people aboard including Citizens of the U.S., France, Turkey, Switzerland, Germany, Italy and Latvia, officials said. I bow my head to the pilots as they were so pofessional that were able to avoid some more victims on the ground. It was a real wonder, made by the pilots, as they could direct the burning plane away from buildings and it crashed into an unpopulated area of the city, just a few hundred yards from residential buildings on the railway, and some part of the Trans-Siberian railway was also shut down as a result of the rail damage.
I can't discribe my feelings now... It's a real tragedy for all nationalities.

Moreover, it has been a busy week of swimming lessons, and Italian lessons that I was attending from Monday. Che la lingua bella ma un po' difficele!
On Saturday I'm going to visit a flower exhibition in Florida! Wide flowers, clematis (I adore it and my balcony is full of them of different types), my favourite tropical flowers, lotua, tulips, roses and others. Great!
Hmmm... yesterday, surfing the Internet I found an interesting article about flower horoscopes. I was laughing out loud that occording to my sign (I'm a cancer), my flower should be delphinium, while I adore roses and have never seen this kind of flower as delphinium LOL
I hope I enjoy my time!

I have been checking out http://www.creditbreak.com/Airmiles-Rewards.php and have found some pretty neat credit cards. I do not have any rewards cards for traveling yet so it might be a good idea to apply for one.

I have spent the last hour I have been checking out all the AWESOME stuff the have on Victoria's Secret website. First, I was looking for a bra, then I decided to check out swimming suits since they were on sale, then I felt that I might as well look at the dresses and shoes because ...wel...because I have nothing to wear! Just like any other women)))
Well, so check out my Polkadot balconet top-to-be)))))

I just saw an online advertisement, something like: looking for a new hairstyle? Upload your picture with dozens of new haircuts.
I have never died or cut my hair in my whole life. I know, it's pretty unusual but it's true. Maybe I am just way too conservative. I am one of these peopel that never change. People that haven't seen me since kindergarden have no problems recognizing me in the street.
well, I guess I just like myself the way I am. Isn't it great?

I especially loved the idea of using the music from Hello, Dolly. I like the show even though it's not the greatest musical. And it's nice to know that kids like my nephew learn to appreciate this kind of music.
WALL-E is a great love story and also a fairy-tale that urges us to think more about how we treat the planet we live on!

I have checked out a few sites on "what to see in Virginia" but none of them gave me enough information. I thinks I'll decide on the spot! I've already booked tickets. I'll go to DC first for a few days to visit my friends and then probably take a bus or drive to Virginia. It's going to be fun!!!!

I just think this is very confusing and marketologists need to think about this issue.

Just today I was in a situation when I really wanted to say: You want me to take care of this?????

Now I would really want to know how much less she makes. I mean she has to make twice less than me because she is so-o-o-o slow...

I don't want to say that I spend hundreds of dollars each month on new out fits but I like to buy clothes. I would rather save on going out (i haven't been to the movies for ages) but buy something new to wear. My boyfriend has literally ten times less clothes than I do.
I buy clothes I like, not the clothes I "need". I mean, I cannot say that I have nothing to wear. Still whenever I see something new I buy it. Especially if you try it on and it looks good.
The problem is: should I spend less on clothes because I do not really need it or should I treat myself. After all I work hard for the money and I deserve soemthing that makes me feel good.
Well, this is really something to think about...

I need to buy a new car. I really do .But with the money I have right now there is no way I can buy what I want. So there are two options: buy something you do nto want or don't buy something you really need.

Actually, I've been pretty busy. I've been working, taking some courses at the university and going out.
Anyway, I've been a bad blogger to put it mildly.
From now one I'll continue writing to this little blog of mine:)
