It's summer time now and I'm supposed to be having fun and enjoying life like what summer is supposed to be. Well, not for Karla. I have to finish my Communications 4 and 5 so I took the risk of having those simultaneously, which is like "whoa!". I mean, I have no choice, no, I have a choice but I was left with bad choices to choose from so I kind of chosen the better of those bad choices (huh?).

For the summer, we were given two designs we have to work on. One is a Microwave Link Design for Dagupan-Solano areas and the other is a Cellular Communications Network (GSM 1800) for Davao Del Sur. Sounds good? No. I of course appreciate the fact that they are preparing us and making us as competitive as we can be. But then, having two designs for a span of 4 weeks to finish is like asking a 10 year old finish 100 calculus problems in 3 hours! *sigh* This is really sucking the life out of me. But then again, thanks to my pride, I won't let myself get away with nothing, of course I managed to get through the most difficult parts and hopefully, my designs will be finished I think two days from now. Yes, Im nearly there. My documentations are nearly done too and the maps were all laid out for checking.

Oh I can't wait for Saturday!! After all the sleepless nights and forgotten meals, at last!, I can sleep all I want by then and eat all I want.. well, I still have to wait till Saturday.

but for now, well... back to my designs...................

ByNature Handmade Soaps

When I was just a kid, I never ever cared about what to use as long as my mom is there and as long as she knows what I am using. Well, during the old times, mommies rely on the traditional way of housekeeping and they tend to pass on what they have learned at home when they were little too. My mom believed that commercial soaps are just fine. Who would have known their flaws anyway? For more than 20 years of my breathing, I have used different local and imported soaps. Bought or given to me as a gift, I all look at them at the same perspective as "just a bar to clean dirt". True enough, they did cleanse me up.. and dried me up. Dry that I learned how to use lotion after every bath. I expertly knew how to lotion up even when I was just a little girl. :)

But then, I had this chance to learn more about soaps with another wonderful mom. She creates hand made soaps for almost a decade now and still continues to spread the love by making her soaps available to everyone. And I started to believe in one thing. That all-natural products are the best. I first tried one of her soaps which is the Citrus White and Olive Beauty. All of which were done with all-natural ingredients, almost good enough to eat so I never would have to worry about the soap's compatibility with my skin. I never had allergies to the ingredients, though.

Citrus White - Made my skin lighter and helped in eliminating dullness. Softens and smoothens my skin, which is automatic because of its goat's milk content.

Olive Beauty - A very mild soap made with the ever-enriching Olive Oil. Makes my skin super soft and smooth. This one is unscented which is just fine for everyone even for babies and those with super-sensitive skin.

After her two variants, I kept on trying one after another and only found myself being amazed with each bar. By Nature Handmade Soaps does not only care about our skin but also cares about the environment and the animals. Some of the proceeds from the soaps were given out to different charities and foundations, which is one of the good things to know. Now, as a grown-up, I think its my turn to teach my mommy something she didn't knew about. And that's caring for our skin-naturally. Keeping away from chemicals and animal by-products are always the good thing to do, and we all should make the best out of what nature can give us.
