“When it snows, you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels”..as for me, I did the latter;)
The first snow falls on the first day of December. Brrrrrr…it’s really freezing cold. Aside from the coat I am wearing, I still have to put on three to four clothes just to keep myself warm. There was a snowstorm last Sunday and all the while it's going to be a boring day but I was wrong. While my housemates were busy shoveling the snow I preferred to make a snow angel. It was really cold lying down and keeping my body flat in the snow but I enjoyed it most especially when I am brushing my arms between my head and waist in a sweeping motion, and moving my legs apart as far. It was like doing a jumping jack while lying on my back. I felt I had my Sunday snow at its best when I saw how pretty my snow angel was.

When I am browsing the site, I have seen the following “must haves” for the holiday season. First are the holiday gifts I am planning to give to my friends. You know how hard it is to think what gift to give to bff, love ones, or even the employer. Good thing Pier 1 has the Zodiac Gift Guide. The Zodiac Gift Guide provides tips on how to choose the right gift through zodiac sign. Then, I want a new set of dinnerware that I can use for Christmas’ Eve and New Year’s Eve. The dinnerware comes in solid and pattern designs. As for me, I want to get the ruby red Spice Route Dinnerware. Last of my “must have is to complete my décor. Right after the Thanksgiving Day, I started putting up Christmas décor, and my décor would be completed once I have the following stuffs I have seen in Pier 1: stocking stuffers Christmas Bath Puffs in snowman, reindeer, and gingerbread designs; a green and red miniature stocking stuffers with bubble bath and lotion. Well, as you have noticed, those decors are for the restroom because that’s the part of the house which I always forgot to put up Christmas décor.
Of course, I deserve to have a gift, right? If my friends or a special someone would buy me a gift, I would like to receive any of the following: Short Crystal Pearl necklace which is silver plated and handcrafted of glass and beads for, a pearlescent Spiral Bracelets, and/or a Papasan Chair and Stool with a cushion. What’s more exciting about the Pier 1 is the clearance sale. Items are as low as $ 1.98.

Also, you can find a Re-do, not a to-do Home Gallery designs.

Be mindful of your eating habits
The food that you eat will have an effect on your body. Follow a healthy diet composed of the right amount of nutrients. Additionally, learn to watch your eating habits and monitor the type of food that you eat every day. Check the labels on food that you buy in the supermarket, and consider how you prepare and cook your food. Steamed and grilled foods have fewer calories and are generally better for you than foods that are fried.
Hydrate yourself with the right beverages
It is important to drink about 6 to 8 glasses of water every day, and hydrate yourself after a strenuous physical activity. This habit will help you replenish water lost and detoxify your body. However, it is important that you also watch what beverages you take in. As much as possible, reduce drinking soda, caffeinated beverages and other artificial drinks.
Exercise is a great way to stay in shape and unwind from stress. Exercise will also help increase blood circulation, tone and strengthen muscles, and increase the body’s oxygen level. If you are unfamiliar with any exercise routines, you can start slowly with simpler physical activities such as brisk walking, jogging, swimming and bicycling. If you prefer having someone coach you, you can enroll yourself in regular workout classes at a gym. If you engage in exercise activities with your family or a friend, you not only improve your physical condition but your social skills and relationships as well.
Quit your bad habits
Developing good and healthy habits are not enough. You should also tackle the other side of the equation, which are your bad habits. If you smoke or drink alcohol, you will be doing your body a great favor by quitting these addictive behaviors. If you have trouble breaking your addictions, you can ask a close friend or family member to help you make these lifestyle changes or seek professional help.
Keep a positive outlook on life
Your mood and general outlook on life will affect how you go about your daily routines and activities. Try your best to have and maintain a positive outlook on life, and surround yourself with people who have a positive influence. Don’t dwell on your problems.
Invest in a hobby
A hobby will be helpful in stimulating your mind and will be a great outlet when you find yourself stressed out. Invest in a hobby that you like. It doesn’t have to be expensive but only something that you are passionate about.
Having a healthy lifestyle will help you enjoy and get the most out of your life.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of LG. All opinions are 100% mine.
My phone contract is about to end this December and I am thinking of getting a new phone. I am considering more features and I want whole new experiences of mobile life. Guess it was just right in time because a new phone was released for the global market. The LG Optimus 7 the first Windows Phone 7 device that offers people to do more in fewer steps.
The Optimus 7 has a 3.8 inch WVGA display, with 720p HD video recording and playback and 5MP camera. According to LG, a user doesn’t have to dig through the menus in sharing multimedia files. Just access on the picture, video, or music “hubs” and files can be shared wirelessly with other digital devices.
What more, with its 16GB internal memory, I can be able to MP3 files, applications and hours of videos as much as I want. I love taking pictures using my phone. So, Optimus 7 is really a good deal for me. The camera has Intelligent Shot that I can take the photo perfectly without adjusting the camera settings and Panoramic Mode.
Another good thing on this phone is this allows me to finish my shopping, banking and other daily duties while I’m out running around doing errands. This allows me to get more work done in a shorter amount of time. The Optimus 7 has voice control interface. Its voice-to-text allows the user to update social network like facebook and tweeter or sending emails and memos. I just have to say the word, speak up and I can be heard. User can also have direct access to their favorite games and music using the Xbox Live and Zune services.
Folks, get a fantastic cell phone with a lot of everyday enjoyment in one little phone.
