Getting Cosmetic Work Done Overseas: Is it Really Worth It?

Photo by Vidal Balielo Jr. from Pexels
Every year thousands of Australians go to places like Thailand and South Korea for cosmetic procedures. In many cases, the work can be comparable to what they would get back home but for a fraction of the costs. However, there are some real risks involved with getting a procedure overseas. So, is getting a plastic procedure done in another country worth it?
How Big of a Procedure is it? If you were looking for a non-surgical procedure or one that could be done non-surgically, you should consider options at home first. Clinics like Lisa Rush can perform non-surgical facelift procedures that are much safer than surgical ones, especially considering that the rules and regulations in Australia are usually far stricter than in another country with cheaper costs.

Whether your child is 2 or 17, it’s never too early or late to teach them about safety. And in the meantime, while they’re learning how to do it on their own, technology has made it easier than ever for you to keep them safe yourself. Here are a few of your options:
Set-up Parental Controls Here, technology helps you take control of your child’s safety online, even when you aren’t around. You should be able to set parental controls on all web-enabled devices to which your child has access—desktop, tablet, cell phone, etc.  
Most current models of electronic devices include parental controls standard. Simply go into the Settings/Control Panel to manage how long your child is allowed to be online, the kind of content they’re allowed to view, and even to stop any unauthorized purchases. If the standard controls aren’t to your liking, you can always take a look at third-party apps that are available (usually for purchase) to give you the level of control you need.

Tips for Washing Fruits and Vegetables

It is fruit and veggie season.  Many of us are shopping at Farmer's markets and growing gardens.  Supermarkets are full of fresh choices.

A couple of months ago I shared a post with you about food-borne illnesses.  Today I want to share tips on washing fruits and vegetables.

Hopefully, before eating any fruits and vegetables that you purchase from the supermarket you give them a good washing.  Think of all of the hands that touch those apples, peaches and plums you are about to bite into!  Yuck!

There are so many nasty pesticides that may be used on your produce.  These pesticides may contain neurotoxins, which are associated with diseases like Parkinson's disease. According to Natural Living Ideas,  three important reasons to wash your fruits and vegetables are

Banana Wave Lets You Drink a Banana

I recently received a few different varieties of Banana Wave to try.  I love bananas and was curious how these would taste.  They are really good!  My favorite was the Strawberry Banana, although they were all yummy. 
I plan to purchase more of these to use for making smoothies or even just adding ice and blending them up.  They are great for taking to the gym, work or even for school lunches.  Check out this article about Banana Wave:

Hey, Athletes:  Forget the Sugary Sports Drinks - Drink a Banana
For athletes and weekend warriors needing an energy boost and a way to replace electrolytes sweated out in the gym or outdoors on the playing field, the go-to solution has been to chug down a colorful, sugary sports drink.
