One of my favorite actresses in Hollywood, Jessica Alba, is now writing her first book ‘The Honest Life.’

The Honest Life, is a how-to handbook based on her mission of creating a natural, non-toxic life for her family.  It will also feature tips on how to create a non-toxic home, from design tips to some of Alba’s favorite family recipes.

…This book is for people who are in the middle but want to create a healthier life, like me.”  – from People.com interview.


Jessica Alba recently launches her first business, The Honest Company, with business partner and co-author Christopher Gavigan.

The book will be published early 2013.

Easiest Jobs in the Market

If only I could land jobs as easy in the list, and earns well too… where will I be now? ^_^

Below are the easiest jobs in the planet which I got from Yahoo! She Philippines.

The Pro Sleeper

Qunar, a Chinese travel review site, has hired three secret reviewers this year to asses the thread count, wi-fi strength, slipper softness, and room service at top hotels throughout the country. Meanwhile, Travelodge employs a full-time bed guru to nap in all of the national hotel chain’s rooms, testing the quality of each mattress. In 2006, that guy earned close to six figures.

The Chocolate Eater

Aww… this I want! ^_^

At Godiva, chocolate testers are trained likesommeliers for the job, learning to inspect for sheen and cracks, taking “bunny sniffs” for aroma notes, and savoring the texture of up to 50 bonbons in a day. Food testers can earn anywhere from $30,000 to $60,000 for their palate, and the very best get to preview the finest sweets on the market. It may sound easy to do, but it’s hard to get. Godiva tasters go to “chocolate school” to qualify, while other companies require “super-tasters,” those born with uniquely potent taste-buds.

The Cute Pet Aggregator

For most of us, kitten ogling is for break-time. But if you’re a web editor for Cute Overload or a casting agent at True Entertainment, the production company behind Animal Planet’s “Too Cute” you have comb through adorable footage and photos of sloths, kittens and puppies for a living.

The Mansion Sitter

If I get to have a job like this, I definitely enjoy every moment and take care of the house and at the same time saving up for the same mansion. ^_^

It’s actually possible to live like a millionaire on $10,000 a year. One couple spent winter in the Pyranees and summer in Antibes, skimming leaves from their private pool, walking dogs and chasing away burglars by simply occupying one mansion or another. Veteran house-siters with killer reputations can charge around $200 a week to mind the mansion, that’s in addition to room and board. For newbies, there’s Luxuryhousesitting.com, a site that connects wanderers with high-end property owners in Florida, California, even Malta and the Virgin Islands.

The TV Watcher

google search

There’s a solid market for this gig. Fast typing fingers can earn you a starting salary of $25,000 to caption TV shows for the hearing impaired as you watch them. Production assistants for clip shows like “Talk Soup” spend their days flipping channels in search of potential segments to pass along to producers.

The Spa Critic


If you’re going to have strong opinions, why not use them to get massages? Susie Ellis, C.E.O of Spafinder, has gotten thousands in her 20 year career. She’s traveled the world as an intrepid reporter, testing back rubs and aromatherapy rituals for her online spa directory. Freelance writers and editors forspa sites and magazines can get all the same massage perks without any of those C.E.O. headaches, and earn between $20,000 and $90,000 a year.

Taking Care of Your Trumpet

I don’t know how to play any musical instruments, but it doesn’t I don’t like music at all, that’s why I got curious how my little sister takes care of her newly bought violin.

My little sister doesn’t have any background or any music lessons learned regarding how to play a violin but she still bought the musical instrument.  She’s a frustrated violinist.

Actually I’m a frustrated musical instrument player too. ^_^  She might want to learn how to play a violin, as for me I wanted to learn how to play a trumpet, slide trumpets perhaps .  I’m more of a wind instrument fan.  But would you believe that you don’t need any cleaning kit for your trumpet?  Or even clean it?

It is said that you only need to do 2 things to your trumpet, simply oil the valves and grease the slides.  It only needs valve oil (twice a week) and slide grease (once a month), not a whole cleaning kit.  Also, you don’t even need to wash it. ^_^

Well, that’s an information for me, and for you as well.  So, if any body offers you to buy a cleaning kit for your newly bought trumpet, decline.  Expert say that you only need valve oil and slide grease.
