4 Tips to Adding Yoga to Your Workout Routine

Are you looking to add a new type of exercise to your workout regimen? If you’ve never considered trying yoga, now may be the time to do so. There are so many benefits that yoga can bring to you, especially if you are looking to lose weight or tone your muscles.

Some of the benefits of yoga include the development of lean muscles. When you do the
poses, you not only develop your core strength but your body gets stretched and becomes
toned as you continue with the routine consistently.  If you are looking to improve your
balance, doing yoga can help with that. Because you have to keep the pose and hold that
position, you learn how to steady your body. When it comes to losing weight, you need to do
your research as not all types of yoga can make you lose the unwanted pounds. That’s
because some types of yoga do not raise the heart rate high enough for you to lose weight.

If you are interested in adding yoga, look at the tips below so that you can get started on
your journey.

1. Try a class in the gym – as previously stated above, there are many types of yoga, so it
would be a good idea to check out and try several types to see which one can help with your
need and which one you are more comfortable with. Go to your gym and find out if they offer
trial classes in yoga and enroll for the class. See which kind you enjoy doing and which you
see yourself doing even while at home. If you cannot gym classes, you can check out online
classes or some YouTube videos that can help you.

2. Start small – don’t aim for the hard poses and just learn the basic ones first. In fact,
before you try a full yoga routine, you can try and do some poses during your cool-down
of your usual exercise routine. Remember to learn how to breathe properly as breathing is
essential is the proper yoga practice.

3. Make it a priority – try to incorporate it into your routine. As you are getting started,
set a time and day on when you will do yoga. If you are serious about learning and practicing,
you need to make time for it. You don’t need to set aside one hour of your day for yoga. You
can take little chunks of your time every day and just do the poses. You can do yoga in
random places, like the park if you feel stifled in your home or office.

4. Broaden your knowledge and take classes – once you’ve gotten the basics down, why not try and learn more. There are people who even go to other countries to learn more yoga poses and enjoy a place of serenity and tranquility. Check out this yoga course Chiang Mai and find more techniques that will enhance not just your physical state but even your spiritual state.

1. Dote
Dote is probably one of the greatest shopping apps out there, in my opinion. There are a bunch of stores to choose from, all in one app! How cool is that? Get Dote-only markdowns and free shipping as well! Here are some of the many stores to shop at: Forever 21, Brandy Melville, Sephora, Urban Outfitters, Colourpop, Victoria's Secret, ZARA, Free People, UNIF, For Love & Lemons, Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Stella & Dot, Alex And Ani, Nike, you name it!

2. Poshmark
I have sold plenty of items on Poshmark and purchased many as well. Get rid of your old stuff, make money towards bills, and splurge once in a while. On Poshmark, you can look for preowned and brand new items for less! The code JPGYO will provide $5 off of any item as well as free shipping. Just download the app, create an account, and enter this code in to get your deal :-)

3. Mercari
Mercari is another great buying and selling app. Find games, clothes, shoes, and tablets for cheap! To get started, here's $2 with the code JBPXCE upon installation of the app.

Amazon Accounts Being Hacked & Unauthorized Purchases: My Experience

Yesterday, at 6:38 PM, I got an email saying that I had placed an order, one for $100 and another for $10.

This surprised me, as I haven't ever logged into my Amazon account for months. I only ever purchased one or two things before. Apparently, hacking is something that can be easily done these days through key-logging, phishing, and plenty of other tricks. I admit that I have been skeptical of how easy it is for some random person out there to get my password and access my account just with the snap of a finger. This experience I lived yesterday has proved to me otherwise.

Such hackers tend to gravitate towards gift certificates for games, consoles, and other costly items. The hacker who took a hold of my Amazon account yesterday was able to figure out my password and take over my account, as my debit card information was somehow stored. They proceeded to make purchases with my linked card. I have notified Amazon regarding said issue, but they were of no help in cancelling the pending order and let the transaction go through. Below are the messages I received from them: 

They also gave me some considerably bad advice: to manually enter my info every time I order something. But didn't they just tell me that my key strokes could (potentially) be detected??

I am in the process of cutting up the card that the hacker used and am looking into a reversal of funds. I advise anyone who shops online (which is many of you) to NOT store payment information into such shopping sites which might seem sketchy, use PayPal whenever possible as Buyer Protection is always helpful (at least in my experience), and when such an incident happens to not freak out like me as your financial institution will reassure you. Just trash that card and get a new one mailed home to you. 

Side Note: DO NOT manually type in your card info if you think your device is key-logged. Also, this lady working at the bank told me that debit cards are more easy to get a hold of for hackers. The important thing is to NOT get your bank credentials leaked.

Hope you all shop safely and take this post into consideration! Love You All~

Influenster~ GLOW VoxBox Review !! πŸ’—

Hello everyone! 
Yet again, I have been MIA... There are only three more weeks of school (including this one) and I am super thrilled yet sad because the years are going by so fast. It was my birthday two weeks ago, which means I am now 17! Next year, I will be legal and that thought is just absolutely crazy. Today, Memorial Day, is a day where we remember those who have served our country. Let us take a moment, then, shall we?............

Okay, now I will be getting back on my feet and posting about this VoxBox I received a while ago from Influenster but never got to share about~ Introducing the Glow VoxBox! ✨bling bling

This is what the box looks like~

All the goodies !

SheaMoisture Face Samples ♥

Sinful Colors "Super Cooper" Nail Polish

⚡ Zahra Flash Tattoos ⚡

My Flash Tat & Painted Nails :-)

*** I somehow forgot to include the Not Your Mother's Royal Honey & Kalahari Melon Leave-In Conditioner, but I'll update this post soon with a pic! 

Although all of these products were lovely, my fave products were most definitely the leave-in conditioner and the flash tattoos! The leave-in conditioner made my hair much softer and easier to work with. It also smells great! The flash tattoos were long-lasting and (obviously) flashy. The nail polish matched my backpack, which I thought was kind of cool.

Well, I will be posting a lot more now that the school year is almost over! Pinky promise this time Until then, you can find me on:

3 Popular Monogramming Styles in 2017

Monogramming is a design that uses a person’s initials to present individual identity. It can be done in different etiquette like a person’s initials or a combination of initials of a married couple. If you often visit thrift shops or gift stores, you surely have noticed how monograms are gaining much popularity. You can see initials on almost every item, from jewelry and teacups to bath towels and baby items.

Interestingly enough, monogramming is nothing new. This technique of personalizing items has been around for ages. Based on history, it was first used on coins during the time of Ancient Greece to symbolize the reign of one Greek ruler. The artisans during the middle ages also use monograms to mark their creations.  

Monograms gained more attention at the time of Victorian era, when people belonging in high society found interest in personalizing their items. Embroidered embellishments became the trend back in the day. They monogrammed clothing and home furnishings.

Like the people during the Victorian era, many of us these days are still fond of monogramming everything. But just like in anything in fashion, the trends come and go. In 2017, here are monogramming styles that rock:

  1. The use of block fonts. With more font styles available these days, there is no doubt that you can find the perfect font that matches your personality. However, some people believe in the power of simplicity. After all, simple block fonts look more sophisticated and easier to understand than a circle monogram font. Oxford dresses and tuxedo shirts will look more elegant with block fonts.    
  2. Large surname letter in the middle. The three-letter monogram is a classic monogramming etiquette that never goes out of style. A person’s first, middle, and last name initials are given more emphasis these days. To make the classic monogram more appealing and stylish, many prefer enlarging the initial of their surname. You can also incorporate another modern trend, which is the use of block fonts to do this.
  3. Simple monograms on leather. According to fashion editor Steff Yotka, phone cases are the new It bags in 2017. By that, phone cases in monogrammed leather will surely be a trend this year. Leather work sounds a tedious process so you may want to count on shops that sell personalized items to do a monogrammed leather for you. But if you are really into DIY, you can paint a monogram on leather.  

If you want to try or learn more about monogramming, it would help to have a sewing machine for making clothes. What’s great about some sewing machines these days is that they already have the embroidery feature. All you need to do is make designs on your computer before merging them into the sewing machine to personalize your items. Buying a computerized sewing machine is more economical than buying a specialty monogramming machine. At least you can still use it when you feel like sewing new clothes or home items like pot holders, bowl covers, and pillow covers.

— methinks experience —

Okay, so I recently downloaded this app called 'methinks' on the Apple App Store as I was searching up some new money-making apps. This one in particular struck me as a totally new, unique way of earning cash for your opinion. After three days of applying for some gigs, I finally had an application accepted!

My gig earnings! Even though I only talked with
Edward (the dude who is involved with 
the Houseparty app) for only 11 minutes xD

 My $10.20 to be sent out Friday!!! ^.^

Overall, I highly recommend this app! I earned $10 in one day just for giving my opinions on this app I use and you can do it too! The rate is $0.67 / minute, and it's not that bad to be honest. If you want a bonus of $10, use my code jennifer0086 :) #selfpromobutigottadoso

Gone Again???

I have been gone for quite a long time, and I am super sorry to keep this blog from being updated. Junior year is definitely a toughie so far, with precis, loads of AP U.S. History homework, volunteering for service hours, and much more T - T (which reminds me OMG did anyone watch TWICE's new MV TT?! It's super catchy & cute ♥)

Okay, but what about BTS Blood, Sweat, and Tears?

Seriously, all these comebacks in the K-Pop world have been killing me! Argh, I still have a lot to catch up on though. 6 hours of homework a day is no bueno (trying to practice my Spanish because I'm in my 4th year of Spanish!).

Anyways, Halloween is on Monday and I just can't wait for Thanksgiving and then winter and then a new year! Eeek I'm so happy just thinking about being able to enjoy a break soon with my friends and family >U<

Here are some cool Halloween costume ideas, decor, makeup, and more!
