@oj1992 It's true, we're not. :D I've heard about that one. I keep jumping from American shows to K-dramas and back and forth.
@YinofYang it's ok, we are not in a competition. haha I finally finished Yi San a 77 epi period drama starring Lee Seo Jin and Han Ji Min. A bit draggy hence I was hopping between dramas. The Dong Yi storyline is better.
@oj1992 You have seen quite a few dramas, haven't you? Man, I feel like I've seen so little. LOL!
I love her in Dong Yi
I love her dresses! I love the white and black palette of the photo shoot paired with her soft makeup.

How to make a ring jewelry candle | Jewelry In Candles Rings
If you're looking for a way to make your home smell great, give jewelry candles a shot. These candles are made with real jewelry and actually burn down like regular candles. While they cost more than the regular run-of-the-mill scented candles you can buy at the store, they sure have an impressive visual effect that makes them worth it. This post takes us through all the steps involved in making your own jewelry candle and gives tips on how to get really creative with it. 1. What you'll need to make a jewelry candle To make a jewelry candle you'll need: candle wicks, votive holders, jewelry findings, jewelry, and essential oils (optional). To make a jewelry candle, you’ll need ingredients you can find at a jewelry store. The general ingredients are: Cotton (linen preferred, but hemp works as well) Eggs (colored varieties are greatest), Pellets or brick, Chaff Distilled white vinegar Freshly ground black pepper Oil These are the basic tools you’ll need to prepare the candles. It is recommended to invest in a candle maker for the process, as they make it a lot easier when applying the wax and other products to the candle. You can buy candles directly from jewelry stores or directly from cosmetic supply companies such as chemhalt — they make candle containers, handles, holders, and the like. Wire cutters, a small piece of cardboard, a tin can, and a knife are useful tools for cutting up candles for candles. To get started, take a wick from your jewelry store. For this jewelry candle, I used an ivory candle wick from Sally Hansen. Craft wax will usually work, but it’s probably a good idea to try wax candles if you choose to do so. Pellets and bricks should cost around $10 each, but if you can find them used, they’re probably not too expensive. You can also find candles pre-sterilized in jewelry stores. Next, you’ll need to find votive holders. I suggest purchasing gray votive holders because they’re easier to see your candle in the light. Next, you’ll need to find jewelry. You can buy jewelry at the jewelry from unrivaled candles, but it’s going to have to be colored. If you have a lot of pink jewelry, you can really use the candles to lighten up the room and make it feel more festive. 2. How to make a ring-shaped jewelry candle Ring-shaped candles are a neat way to make a candle that looks like jewelry. If you want to make one, you’ll need a candle mold, which you can get from unrivaled candles. It will give you the opportunity to make variations of the same ring shape that will fit nicely inside your candle mold. The jewelry candles we made had practical uses. One I made was a sort of travel mug that took up very little room. Another was meant to give off a warm ambiance in my office for cooking. First, you’ll need to empty your jewelry drawer. Then you’ll need clean, dry, and free of oils (unflavored) jewelry screws. And finally, you’ll need something that looks nice (preferably cotton). When used correctly, the jewelry screws will hold ceramic rods in jewelry molds and make the candle bigger and therefore better smelling. One way to clean your screw heads is with a cotton bud soaked in pink Master Cleaner (it comes in a can). You can also use a toothbrush dipped in it, but wire brush will also cause the jewelry to become powdery and you won’t be able to see the patterns that you’re creating or stain your fingers. Next, you’ll need to make your ring. As stated above, you want your beads to be wearable, not precious. These links will give you ideas for what kind of beads to use. You should be able to fit around 30–40 beads in your candle. Aside from choosing a distance between beads and ring, you may want to experiment with sewing or gluing the beads together. If you’re squirreling away in your jewelry drawer as little as I do, you’re probably bored of clicking pictures of plexiglass boxes and rings that look almost identical. To make your beads go in more easily, you can also use a special ring punch to punch them out. You’ll also need something to fill your candle with. 3. How to make a necklace-shaped jewelry candle If you're looking for a project to do with your daughter, or just for yourself, making a necklace-shaped candle is a fun project that can also be made in a variety of colors and styles. You can find all the materials you'll need at a craft store, and the project itself is pretty simple. You can use metal or plastic beads ornaments, ordinary household items, or jewelry. Beads can be purchased already made or otherwise perfected, and things can be salvaged that you may have discarded, like old locket pins, metal fish scales, ornaments from party stores, or even jewelry cut down to the right size or in the appropriate vintage settings.  The instructions for making your necklace candle are fairly flexible, and you can find extensive step-by-step instructions on the unrivaled candles website. The general steps are to cut the beads to size or to buy smaller versions of the beads you want.  You can make the candle factory scent or any of the pleasant scents like bay leaf or sandalwood. I opted for trying out a variety of real pieces of jewelry to scent. If you intend to just use a basic plastic beads jewelry box, you can find the instructions for making a jewelry box here. To start, lily of the valley scented candles are the way to go. Previously, I used beeswax candles with mixed results, so I was pleasantly surprised when I used a box of crystal jewelry beads. They are nice because they magnify the scent from your finger, creating an entire floral scent that goes well with the candles. You could also use real ball-peen hammers, moon balls, or stars as the candle-holder. 4. Making candles from other pieces of jewelry Ten years ago, I wanted to make a candle out of a ring from my jewelry collection. I thought it would be a fun project and a great way to re-purpose my old jewelry. I tried it and it worked. The result was a beautiful, personalized candle. I decided to make the same candle for my home to make it work better. I wanted it to last longer, look nicer, and smell like real jewelry. I didn’t want it to smell like replacement jewelry. I also didn’t want it to burn down like regular candles do, so I skipped the aluminum ring and went with sterling silver instead. To get started, I cut rings exactly the size and shape I wanted my candle to have! Then I decided on the design I wanted and the design I bought. I used hot glue to secure it to the metal ring. Before using the hot glue, I applied two coats of the wax of my choice. This includes Irish Moss, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel, and Loire Valley Rose. The wax flavor depends on the project or what you’re using it for. Now the fun part. If you have some jewelry already that you don’t need anymore, you can keep it or sell it. After all, you’re not trying to start a business here! I bought rings that repaired a hole I had in my finger. I also bought new earrings just because I thought they would fit better and look nicer in the candle. I sold my earrings after I made my jewelry candle. I used these rings as templates when cutting the rings for the wax candle. I taped them to the metal ring to keep track of where I was cutting. To attach the wax to the rings, I tried to be as accurate as I could. After applying the wax, I screwed in the metal bases to the rings and pressed the small screws into the top of the rings to secure. 5. Tips for making the best jewelry candles Making candles can be a fun and creative craft project. It’s also a great way to repurpose old jewelry you don’t wear anymore. Just melt down old necklaces and earrings, and then pour the molten metal into a mold to create a decorative candle you can burn and enjoy. The first thing you’ll need for making jewelry candle is jewelry. You can find jewelry melts easily online. you can search for a jewelry candle to see what is currently trending. There are tons of options, from traditional pieces like bandanas and medal charms to more modern pieces like earrings and bracelets. Once you have your metal, it’s time to find a gift idea for your loved one. There are so many ways you can show love for someone, from repairing an old broken engagement ring to simply buying them a beautifully-crafted jewelry candle that smells like their heart. What’s a way to give someone priceless as a surprise? While jewelry is an appropriate gift for many occasions, on Valentine’s Day, it’s especially sweet. You can use your existing jewelry collection to give the person a gift that will truly remind them of the special day. It will also make the person feel special. From necklaces to earrings, you can make dozens of look-alike gift items using jewelry melting wax. Fiddle with the sizing of the melted wax to get the perfect look and safety. Keep the gift wrapped in the original packaging and an unopened jewelry candle inside the gift box. Glue it to a small, square scrap of cardboard or envelope, and you’ve got a card they can use to proudly display their lovely gift to someone special. Some people make their jewelry candle permanent for extra love and care. It pretty much ensures the person who receives it is reminded of the special occasion from the moment they receive it.
5 Ways To Tell Your Vitamin D Is Low and 5 Foods That Are High in Vitamin D
Several generations ago, it was common for parents to leave their naked infants in the sun every day for good health. Our modern minds are prone to exclaiming, "That's insane! Did they apply sunscreen first?” Although it may not be how we would do it today, these parents did help their children get enough vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency is an epidemic in the United States, affecting as many as 90 percent of some adult populations. This is a serious public health issue that must be addressed. What Is the Function of Vitamin D? Vitamin D, which is actually a hormone, differs from other vitamins. Our body can produce the majority of what we require rather than relying on food. But It is not the same fo for vitamin D. Vitamin D is also known as the “sunshine vitamin” because it is produced by our bodies when sunlight is converted into chemicals that can be used by the body. When UVB rays strike our skin, a substance in our skin converts to D3, which then travels through our bloodstream to our kidneys and liver. Vitamin D is fat-soluble and is found in the body's fatty tissues as well as the liver. It is an important nutrient for overall health, and studies show that a lack of it can lead to brittle bones, breast cancer, colon cancer, autoimmune disorders, high blood pressure, and heart disease. What Is the Best Way to Get Vitamin D? Our body makes vitamin D primarily through exposure to sunlight, and with adequate exposure, we can produce adequate amounts. With the rise in skin cancer over the last few decades, however, many people now wear sunscreen, limiting the opportunity for the skin to do its incredible sunlight conversion. It is difficult to strike a balance between the need to get enough vitamin D and the need to protect our skin from damage. And, because it varies from person to person, there is no precise amount of sunlight that doctors can point to as the ideal amount for vitamin D production. Experts recommend 10-20 minutes of sun exposure per day in general, but this varies greatly depending on the individual and their location. People with dark skin produce less of the nutrient than those with light skin. Young people outnumber older people in terms of output. And those living north of Atlanta in the United States will find it nearly impossible to get enough UVB exposure during the winter, no matter how willing they are to forego sunscreen. 5 Vitamin D Deficiency Symptoms Blood tests ordered by your doctor are the only way to diagnose low vitamin D levels, but here are some warning signs to look out for and discuss with your doctor: 1. Infections and illnesses are common. Vitamin D receptors are found throughout our body, including on immune cells. One of vitamin D's primary functions is to assist our bodies in fighting infections. If you are prone to colds, flu, and respiratory infections, you may be deficient in this essential nutrient. 2. Pain in the muscles and bones. Vitamin D is well known for its role in osteoporosis prevention because it aids calcium absorption. However, it also appears to have anti-inflammatory properties. If you suffer from chronic bone, back, or muscle pain, you may need to increase your D levels. 3. Fatigue on a regular basis. Adults can easily dismiss their constant tiredness as a result of getting older and busier. Even when patients look for the source of their chronic fatigue, vitamin D deficiency is frequently overlooked. However, studies show that extremely low levels of this nutrient cause chronic fatigue and tiredness. 4. Hair thinning. This is a symptom that many people immediately associate with stress. While stress can be a cause of hair loss, vitamin D deficiency should also be considered. Low levels have been linked to the autoimmune disorder alopecia areata, which causes severe hair loss all over the body. 5. Depression. There are vitamin D receptors in the part of the brain that influences the development of depression, so a lack of the nutrient may result in the disorder. Low levels of D have been linked to depression in studies conducted in Norway and Sweden. 5 Vitamin D Rich Foods Because most of us are unable or unwilling to spend enough unprotected time in the sun to produce vitamin D, we must rely on food sources. Here are five foods that will help you increase your levels: Fatty Fish Because vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, it must be combined with fat to be utilised. Vitamin D is abundant in fish such as salmon, tuna, herring, and sardines. These fish are also high in protein and healthy fats. Lamb and Beef Liver Although many people do not consider organ meat to be a favourite food, it is extremely nutrient-dense and a great source of vitamin D. Beef liver, in addition to being high in D, is also high in iron, making it a nutritional powerhouse. Egg Yolk Eggs are well-known for being high in protein, but their yolks also contain a significant amount of vitamin D. Unfortunately, due to cholesterol concerns, egg yolks have spent a lot of undeserved time on the Western world's naughty list of foods. Fortunately, that era has passed, and we now recognise the incredible health and nutritional benefits of eggs. Fortified Foods Vitamin D is added to many foods, including cereals, oatmeal, milk, and orange juice. Although these items are not as effective as other food sources at delivering nutrients, they are useful in addressing deficiencies in the population, particularly among children. Shellfish Shrimp and oysters are both low-calorie vitamin D sources, making them ideal for a healthy diet. Oysters have the added benefit of being high in B12.

If BTS Were in Boys Over Flowers
Now, I think there are a lot of things wrong with the plot of BoF (mainly the boys treat Jan-di like crap) but its still funto imagine it as a less problematic drama. Here's who I'd cast! Gu Jun Pyo - Suga The leader of the F4 and heir to the Shinhwa Group, one of the biggest companies in South Korea. He is hot-tempered and believes that there is nothing that money can't buy. Though he's unable to express his feelings, deep down, he has a heart of gold. He torments Jan-di after she stands up to his bullying ways, but ends up falling in love with her and will do anything to protect her. Yoon Ji Hoo - V A member of the F4 and the grandson of a former president of Korea. He has a driving phobia after being involved in a car accident that killed his parents and left him the only survivor. He is initially in love with his childhood friend Seo-hyun, who helped him overcome his social anxiety. Calm and gentle, his musical talent catches Jan-di's attention and she begins to develop feelings for him. So Yi Jung - Jungkook A member of the F4 and a skilled potter. His family owns the country's biggest art museum. After losing his first love to his brother, he becomes a Casanova. He eventually changes his playboy ways when he realizes that he likes Ga-eul. Song Woo Bin A member of the F4, his family runs the country's largest construction company, which Woo-bin later admits has strong connections to organized crime. However, he has excellent business sense and is very charismatic. He's a super nice guy that happens to be a gangster lol and of course RM, Jin, and Jimin are the dad, mom, and little brother :) How would you cast BOF?
Why Is Shampoo Bad For Your Hair? And How To Wash Instead.
Certain chemicals found in some shampoos can be harmful to your hair. While this is not a call to stop using shampoos entirely, it should make you aware that there are alternatives available if you want to pursue them! Having said that, what are some of the negative effects of shampoo? 1. It shortens the life of your hair. That's a fancy way of saying that if you use shampoo, you'll have to wash your hair more frequently, which sounds counterintuitive. Shampoos, in general, can leave a nasty buildup of chemicals on your scalp, which can wreak havoc on your skin over time. Your scalp will eventually become so saturated with these chemicals that it will do strange things like overproduce oils this is probably why my scalp is so greasy. 2. It causes frizz in your hair. This is particularly true for those of us who have curly hair. I know I don't look it based on my profile picture, but my hair can get pretty loopy if left to its own devices. I have noticed that it frizzes up significantly more after washing it with shampoo than when I leave it alone. 3. It will trap you in a viscious cycle. You'd like to stop using shampoo, but if you do, your scalp will go nuts producing oils, making you look completely ridiculous. Try waiting a couple of weeks, your scalp will calm down. Stay strong and don't give in to the urge and shampoo before that. If you want to get away from the shampooing craze, do this when you don't have to be seen in public for a good 2 weeks! 4. It's also wasteful. Using shampoo is apparently frowned upon in the “zero waste” community. This is because most people go through it quickly especially if you have longer hair, and as a result, you'll end up using a lot of plastic bottles. Shampoo alternatives are much more environmentally friendly, as you'll see in a moment. 5. It cannot be washed away. This is a little ironic. Shampoo removes almost everything from your hair except itself. Because your hair is porous, it absorbs whatever is in your shampoo like a sponge over time. You'll have hair loss issues if you use a cheap shampoo or one with chemicals that don't mix well with your scalp. The only way to truly remove the shampoo gunk from your hair is to use a super-strong shampoo designed specifically for this purpose, or to simply wait it out and let your scalp dispose of it naturally. What can you do now that you're aware of some of the negative effects of shampoo? 1. Use the “No-Poo” method. This method essentially eliminates shampoo from the equation. One of the simplest ways to start is to use a small amount of conditioner in your hair while showering instead of lathering up a wad of shampoo and conditioner every time you wash up. Conditioner is gentler on your hair than shampoo and should keep your scalp and strands moisturised without causing too much damage. 2. Use alternative scalp and hair cleansers. Apple cider vinegar can be used as a shampoo substitute. Some people seem to tolerate it better than others, as some have complained that the vinegar smell is unbearable, while others claim they don't notice anything. I suppose it all depends on the individual. In essence, apple cider vinegar acts as a natural conditioner. To combat any salad dressing-like after-smells, this blog suggests mixing two tablespoons of vinegar with water and rosemary. 3. Make use of natural shampoos. Those who said they had no luck with “no-poo” or apple cider vinegar reported success with natural shampoos. These are shampoos made entirely of natural ingredients, as you might expect. To find them, on online shopping sites (just type in "natural shampoos") is your best bet, though I'm sure your local Walmart has a selection of products like this as well. Labels, as always, should be avoided. Always read the ingredients on the back of the bottle to ensure that the shampoo you're considering is truly "natural." What do you have to lose by trying out this new anti-shampoo craze if you have greasy, frizzy hair? It appears to be working for many people, so it's worth a shot! Do speak to your hair specialist if you have any prexisting scalp issues.
Brilliant Legacy
Go Eun-sung (Han Hyo-joo) was studying overseas in New York and returned to Korea during her vacation to bring her autistic brother, Eun-woo (Yeon Joon-seok), to the United States to study music. Sunwoo Hwan (Lee Seung-gi), who was also studying in New York, was ordered to return to Korea by his grandmother, Jang Sook-ja (Ban Hyo-jung), to learn how to manage her food company. Eun-sung and Hwan, who were on the same flight back home, accidentally had their luggage bags exchanged, which led to several misunderstandings between the two. Go Pyung-joong (Jeon In-taek), Eun-sung's father, was struggling to save his company from going bankrupt. One day, his wallet and valuables were stolen by a thief who subsequently died in a gas explosion accident. The police, upon finding Pyung-joong’s belongings on the thief, mistakenly identified the thief as him and a death certificate for Pyung-joong was promptly issued. He decided to lie low and not tell his family that he was alive so that his family could claim his life insurance money and use it to clear the debts. However his second wife, Baek Sung-hee (Kim Mi-sook), kicked her stepchildren, Eun-sung and Eun-woo, out of the house after collecting the insurance money and moved into a new home with her daughter, Yoo Seung-mi (Moon Chae-won). Seung-mi was also Hwan's longtime best friend, hoping to be something more. Eun-sung asked for help from several of her friends, including Hyung-jin, who avoided her because she was no longer rich. She managed to find a job at a nightclub with the help of her friend, Hye-ri. At the nightclub, Eun-sung met Hyung-jin's upperclassman, Park Joon-se (Bae Soo-bin), who was shocked to see her working there. She also met Hwan, who caused her to lose contact with Eun-woo. Realizing that Eun-woo was missing, Eun-sung was devastated and tried searching for her brother but to no avail. With the help of Hye-ri and Joon-se, Eun-sung rented a small room and started a small dumplings stall while continuing her search for Eun-woo. Meanwhile, Sook-ja became deeply disappointed in her grandson as Hwan had no direction in life and did not know how to cherish her company and employees. While pondering over what to do about her grandson, Sook-ja visited a neighborhood that she used to live in when she was poor and encountered Eun-sung, who was selling dumplings. Sook-ja encountered an accident and received help from Eun-sung. Seeing that Eun-sung tried her best to take care of her even when she could not afford her own daily expenses, Sook-ja was touched by Eun-sung's compassion. She brought Eun-sung home, then announced to her family that Eun-sung was going to live with them and that she was going to appoint Eun-sung as the heir of her food company, if she could raise the profits of the sinking second branch by 20%. i loved this drama :D
