Renée Kathleen Zellweger who is famous for her role in the film Jerry Maguire looks really different she was barely recognizable. The social media went berserk and people are speculating that Zellweger had cosmetic surgery. The whole whole thing started when she appeared on the red carpet last Monday October 20, 2014 at the Elle magazine 21st annual Women in Hollywood event. She looked remarkably different from her "Jerry Maguire" and "Bridget Jones's Diary" days.

Renee Zellweger answered back she said that it is silly and her new look is a result of her happy and healthy lifestyle. "It seems the folks who come digging around for some nefarious truth which doesn't exist won't get off my porch until I answer the door."

"My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy," she said. "For a long time I wasn't doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn't allow for taking care of myself."

How to Save at the Grocery

Grocery, save money, save

Every grocery store are different so it will be a bit trickier to determine who got the cheapest products, but all these grocery store have the same or similar tricks to get you spending more money than you should have.

Avoid products that are for single use or products that are packaged for convenience. Products that are in Economy-sized isn't always cheap, the only way to be certain is divide the total amount by its unit to know the unit price.

If you like bagged salads, you'll be better off buying them separately. You'll have more lettuce and more dressing than purchasing a single packaged salad. Cut fruits is also more expensive than if you purchase the whole fruit in terms of unit price.

Products that have new features, tend to be more expensive than the regular stuff. Like for example, a toothbrush with new bristle. Why not buy an ordinary toothbrush that can also do the job, or a juice drink with new easy to drink bottle or no slip bottle.

Food stuff that is fortified and that say it's healthier, well if you are buying potato chips and they are offering less salt or less fat potato chips for a higher price look at the Nutritional label see if the amount of salt or fat are really high on the regular chips or if it's manageable. If you really want to eat healthy then avoid eating potato chips.

Another way to save huge on your grocery bills is always use coupons and buy store sales.

What is Konjac and why is it special? Konjac Potato or also known as konjaku, konnyaku potato, devil's tongue, voodoo lily, elephant yam, snake palm, or konjak is a perennial plant that is native in Asia. It can be found in Japan, China, and Indonesia. Konnyaku or yam cake is made from the root of Konjac, it is cooked and consumed primarily in Japan.

Konjac has almost no calories it is 97% water, but is very high in fiber. Thus, it is often used as a diet food. It is also pH neutral that leaves skin perfectly balanced.

The tree was first discovered in the Indochinese region, and Konnyaku has been used in Korea, Japan and China for over 1,500 as food, dieting aid, medicine, and as beauty product. It is known for its health giving properties. The original purpose of the Konjac Sponge is for use on delicate baby skin. The Konjac Sponge exfoliate the skin, and it absorb dirt and pollutants. It is also packed with minerals and antioxidants and 100% non toxic since it is 100% natural.

There are a lot of types of Konjac Sponge, I tried the Bamboo Charcoal for oily and acne prone skin since my can be quite oily the sponge is very light and stiff once you soak it in warm water it turn silky soft and mushy. You can use cleansing products in small amount but it is not necessary. I used a little cleansing product and yes my face feels much more cleaner, free from oil and dirt. I've been using konjac sponge for two weeks and it really makes a difference, the sponge should last 2 to 3 months, totally worth the $10 price tag on Amazon.
