Spectacular Vision for Less

I’ve ranted and raved in blog posts many a time about how hard it is living in a situation that puts me at near poverty levels even with the crazy hours I work. I work online mostly and every penny I make is used up before all of my basics are out of the way, so the fact that I’ve had to make due without glasses ever since I grew out of my 6th grade pair shouldn’t come as a shock.

But with or without the means, at some point I’m going to have to suck it up and do without something else in order to buy the glasses I need, because currently I’m getting chronic vision induced migraines all the time, and I can’t seem to shake them which really affects my work and my sleep habits. I can’t keep going on like this without the ability to fix it or the pain will drive me insane.

I’ve been seriously thinking of getting some eyeglasses at ZenniOptical. They’ve got new frames in, very nice stuff with great shape to them, especially these totally radical (yes, I am bringing that phrase back after successfully reviving ‘dude’ in the late 90s, lol) frames below which are my current favorites! Isn’t that gorgeous 80s Grape Ape color absolutely divine?

They not only have a huge selection, but they’ve got frames sarting as low as $8 per pair, which sounds as good as the word ‘free’ to me because the price is so low it may as well be, and if they’re as good as they look I’ll be recommending them to everyone including my sister who’s in desperate need of vision correction.

For Better Hallway Vision

Okay, I’m really, really tired of getting horrible migraines just from doing my job. I’ve got to stare at this computer screen for hours and hours on end, and it’s killing my head. My issue, I think, and what is giving me these horrible headaches is that my eyes are bad and I haven’t been able to buy a new pair ofeyeglasses, or even get my eyes checked for over 12 years because I’m poor, to be honest, and I can’t afford things that a lot of people take for granted.

My best bet is to try ZenniOptical.com, I’m dead set on trying them out because you can get a pair of perscription glasses with stylish frames for as low as $8 per pair, plus they have a wide variety of lenses from single vision to tinted, progressive to bifocal and a lot more and they offer them at these rock bottom prices because they don’t spend all their money in advertising and they sell directly to you, no middle man. Find out what people are saying about them HERE. They can afford to offer such low prices because they manufacture their own frames instead of outsourcing to another company for that. It’s definately worth a look if, like me, you’re flat broke all the time!


Ugh, I have been sick to my stomach all day. I’ve been having a lot of stomach problems the last six or seven months or so, but this is different. This was brought on by a pita chip, which was utterly disgusting and now I’m so queasy from a quarter-sized bite that I’ve thrown up twice and I’m sitting here nausiated out of my mind and waiting for more heaving to come. I’m so tired of being sick every second of every day, if it’s not one thing it’s another, but this time I’m kicking myself because I could have avoided it.

Gorgeous Glasses

I’ve talked before about how I need to be able to afford new eyeglasses, and how I’m skint broke and can barely afford to keep my domain name registered to keep my blog online here at Beautiful Sin, so this isn’t news to my regular visitors I’m sure, but I just got through reading up a glowing ZenniOptical.com recommendation from over at The Clark Howard Show and I really think they deserve praise like that from a consumer advocate show.

I mean, where else are you going to find such gorgeous glasses for such a low price? We’re talking an insane amount of stylish frames, you can get single vision lens, tinted sunglasses lense, even sunsensor and bifocals for as low as $8 and YES they are able to fill perscription orders for that price! I just adore their frames, the selection is amazing, plus they manucature their own frames so you get the lowest possible price every time because you’re not paying a middle man or extra for shipping, storage or wholesale prices that other glasses retailers pay, so you don’t get gouged on the price. My abolute favorite pair of glasses are pictured here, tell me those aren’t adorable? They’re so me! :)

Walk for a Cure

I know a lot of people are touched in some way by disease and dementia, and everyone has to go through their own struggles, but one struggle that my sister and I have both had to deal with is taking care of a parent who was plagued with Alzheimer’s in their twilight years.

It’s something that just tears you up and eats you alive, especially for our family because we couldn’t afford treatment like so many other people out there. It’s scary, you’re totally alone in something like this and you can’t see a way out, and we weren’t even the ones afflicted, I can’t imagine how horrible it must be to have the disease.

If you’ve been touched by Alzheimer’s or know someone who has, or just feel strongly about finding a cure then please sign up for the Alzheimer’s Memory Walk as a team captain! Normally these walks are 2-3 miles and occur in the fall on a weekend morning and with the help of the Alzheimer’s Association you can help find a cure for this debilitating disease. Please do what you can, if you can’t walk then please spread the word and donate if possible!

My Beauty Addiction

You know how some women collect hand bags, and some collect lipsticks? I collect skin care products. It’s a weakness, I know, and it’s an addiction, too. I love the scent of, say, Aveeno or Garnier, and Clinique is my God ( literally, lol ), but I’ve never used Remergent or SkinMedica, and apparently that’s what iDerma’s using to try and tempt me over to their wide range of skin care and anti-aging products. Mooisturizers. They have moisturizers! They know I want moisturizers! They even have sunscreen and mineral make up, plus selected brands that are recommended by dermatologists. How cool!

Grr, Arghhhh!

So, I’m sleepy and yet here I am, plugging away at this BS so that I can finally get the first batch of fanlisting templates up and zipped, and uploaded and blah blah blah, lol. I’ve only got three of the ten templates I want to have finished actually finished and almost ready to upload, but smarty-pants that I am I had decided to get ten of them up before I upload them and now I wish I hadn’t.

Yes, I’m super duper lazy and I want to get it done already and just put up what I have so far, lol. I think it’s because I’ve been so busy, I haven’t even had time to finish any of my new brush sets, which is annoying since that also means I barely have time to eat or sleep – which explains my fabulous mood, lol.

Stomach Issues

Argh, I’m sick to my stomach. I’ve been dealing with sour stomach for two months now and I’m throwing up all the time, I don’t know what’s wrong with me. It’s freaking me out, it’s so painful but I can’t go and see a doctor because I’m dirt poor and have no insurance for *anything* which lends itself to me going crazy from pain and paranoia – it’s really getting to me.

I’m thinking of going the herbal route, because there *has* to be something to cure this kind of thing, right? Some kind of tea or something? It’s beginning to replace headaches as the health problem that hates me and messes up my daily life. I’m so tired of this.

Miracle Growth?

Well, I have to admit I’ve never heard of a supplement that helps you get taller than you are, but apparently there is one – or so it seems. Yeah, this isn’t one of those ‘that certain part of a male body’ growth pills, it’s actual height! You see, when you stop growing it’s because your bones fuse at the ends ( or that’s how I understand it, at least ), and because of genetics, mal nutrition, etc. they can fuse prematurely – aka, some people are just meant to be short. Well, I don’t know how HGH makes you grow taller if your bones are fused at the ends, but honestly I’m no doctor so I don’t know how things work exactly. It’s worth looking into, though!

New Height Increasement Supplement May Help You Grow Taller

Los Angeles, CA — May 10, 2008 — A new product claims that it is the first supplement that has developed specifically for the purpose of height increasement. That’s right, it’s a product that is actually designed to make you grow taller. They call their product “Maxagrowth” and claim that they have seen results of up to 4 inches of height increase in many of their clients, many of whom have taken the product years after puberty. Maxagrowth says they have performed tests on various gender, age, and ethnic groups and seen height increases from 1 – 4 inches, sometimes gaining as much as 6 inches, with little to no negative side effects.

So why would someone want to become taller? Well, there are numerous reasons. Many studies have proven the correlation between being taller and having more self confidence, which may explain why the average American CEO is taller than the average American man. Many studies have also proven that how tall you are is the first thing that is noticed about you in the human brain, even before your race or gender. How tall you are can also directly correlate to how attractive you are to the opposite sex. Numerous studies amoung women have proven that they tend to prefer men who are taller over shorter ones, and numerous studies among men have shown that they are more intimidated by taller males and tend to give them more respect.

So how does it work? Maxagrowth’s website states that it contains 9 ingredients which have been selected for their abilty to increase the production of HGH (Human Growth Hormone) in the human body. “HGH is what triggers our bodies to get that “growth spurt” that we get when reaching puberty.” A Maxagrowth rep stated. “What Maxagrowth does is give adults a “second growth-spurt” by triggering the release of HGH that is lacking in their body.” To get the maximum results you need to take four capsules daily, two in the morning and two in the evening. The complete course is 6 months, during the time of which you hopefully will see increased gains in your height.

The most amazing thing about Maxagrowth however may be the price. For a supplement making such extraordinary claims we expected the price to be somewhere around $100 or more per bottle. We were actually pretty shocked when we found out that it was only $39.95. An affordable price indeed. “We think our product is a breakthrough that will change people’s lives.” a Maxagrowth representative said. “Part of our innovation is to have a product that not only does what we says it does, put is priced extremely affordably. We want our product to be used and benefited by all.”

While a Maxagrowth spokesman said that their product may be released in retail stores in the near future, it is currently only available for purchase through their website www.maxagrowth.com. They will also give you two bottles free if you purchase the full six month course and offer a 90-day money back guarantee on all orders.

Fat People: Just TRY?

Holy crap! Some of the things people suggest to help ‘fat’ people become ‘normal’ are insane! I was talking to this chickie at the store today, and she made a comment about how all fat people have to do to be thin is to just get up off that couch and lay off the chips – as if it’s that easy!? Like everyone who’s overweight is just lazy and they eat too much, that’s all there is to it? That’s crazy-insane! What is wrong with this woman?

She even suggesed that people fix their cravings by doing things that are obviously dangerous, here are some of them – you’ll laugh and be scared at the same time!

Replace food cravings with:
Crushes, you can never have enough and they satisfy a sweet tooth! there’s nothing like obsessing over that certain someone!
Sponges. attack that dirty sink or kitchen floor and wipe your stress away!

I have to write them all down, they’re hilarious!
