A nice sunset

By on June 26, 2017

 

In the age of the selfie, it is almost a crime not to take pictures especially when you are travelling for leisure. But quite by accident or divine providence, my brother and I went out of the hotel room to watch the sunset with neither a phone nor a camera. As we were waiting for the sunset at the chapel overlooking the sea, we talked about how taking pictures has robbed us of living completely in the moment and how we have lost connection with ourselves in moments when are supposedly alone.

Then, just as the sunset was about to appear in the horizon after checking my wood watch, we discovered a boardwalk that leads to the exact spot where the sun sets.  It was the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen, and the closest I could get to the real thing, to living in the here and now. Little did I know that as the day was coming to a close, the rest of the family were living the moment as well, each with a very special person to share it with: father with son, mother with daughter, husband with wife.

Bracelets for bringing good health

By on May 21, 2017

I think Juju supply is the absolute best. That’s what I think. I love shopping on juju.com because it is so full of meaningful gifts that I can give to people of my life we’re having a hard time. For example, I once bought somebody and intention bracelet and it really made their day. Years have passed since I bought that gift, and people still remember when I gave them something that they cared about, as I started giving things like intention bracelets out of to everyone I knew who was struggling with anything. What is an intention bracelet? That’s a good question, I always get mine from Juju supply.com, and basically what it does is it acts as a healing bracelet. Basically you are supposed to put a JuJu bracelet around your wrist, Tieton, however you choose, just so that it will stay there. This is a great way to show your care and relations with somebody that you love, or just care about, and it will really help somebody stay purposefully improving in their journey. I believe that it can really help people set their mind in a way that will help them and encourage them. More or less, these intention bracelets can basically just act as really nice, simple reminders of motivational thoughts and reasons to think positively and move toward somebody’s goals. In my opinion, that is so much. So, I really treasure that these things can make a big difference in somebody spiritual and health journey, and all it is is a simple, basic, but still beautiful bracelet. On the website for Juju, they have all sorts of different ones.

I Love Photography

By on May 16, 2017

I think that it is kind of a beautiful thing, and it is something that gives me a lot of Hope for the future, and I hope that we can continue moving in this direction w, so that everybody has access to the same technology and entertainment. Also, not to mention, the fact that photography is one of these forms that is probably the most sensible to democratize in this way. I really believe in liberating these forms so that everybody can express themselves to these mediums, and everybody has an eagle shot at hitting it big with one of their photos, whether it be on Instagram or some other stuff photography site. There is a certain ability that only few people have, and ability to see things in a way that other people do not, and to unlock these mysterious ways of seeing the same thing, and a lot of people that don’t usually have the access to high-quality photography equipment may have that skill, as a matter of fact I would say many surely do. So, by allowing people to make beautiful mobile photos, with their cameras and then also with these filter apps and things like this, I think that we are doing a great service to society and members of society who wouldn’t usually have the chance to express themselves through these mediums. You know, at this point, there are actually entire films which are entered in film festivals and things like that that are filmed on mobile phones, and when you’re watching the film, you can’t even tell. You can’t even tell that it’s filmed on a mobile phone. It’s not like some kind of gimmick or something, it is literally just filmed on a mobile phone and it looks good that way. When I first saw the movie, I couldn’t even tell, but afterwards was somebody told me, I shouldn’t have been as shocked as I was.

A whole new level of beauty

By on May 14, 2017

 

I found the best Vitamin C serum in the world, I am certain. I’m so pleased by the fact that this vitamin C serum is something that is in my life, and I truly do recommend it to literally everyone that I talk to about skin care. Honestly this is a product that is wedged its way into my life is something that I literally need, and that’s not a bad thing, in my opinion. It’s not something that I feel powerless about, something that I feel like I can’t function if there was, it’s just something that I love so much and I’m so grateful for that I hope that I never have to live without it, because I love the effects that it has on my skin, honestly I’m not the type of person who goes around giving positive to use to everything that I kind of like, I generally only do it for things that I love. I stumbled upon this product and, on a sort of risky feeling, I decided to order it and see what it would do for my wrinkles, and all I can say is that they are significantly reduced and I am so grateful for the fact that this came together.

Amazing delivery, excellent service

By on April 23, 2017

When people ask me if the very common question, when they ask is Amazon Prime worth it— it is hard for me to answer that question without acknowledging the fact that I Amazon Prime is doing something that nobody else is. So, bye asking the question I can answer in a lot of different ways. I mean, in general, for most people, I would say it is probably worth it, in my opinion. However, I can quantify that in a lot of different ways. You know, first thing I’ll say is that if you ever use Amazon as delivery type service, like if you do online shopping on amazon.com and then have it delivered to, I would say I’m is on Prime is probably worth it right away. Because you can make pretty good discounts on each order, and overtime then money that you’re saving really starts to add up, you know what I mean. And then, from there, you can also enjoy a lot of other benefits because you’ve already signed up. I mean right now Amazon Prime has a streaming service that is basically just as highly regarded as Netflix, and it comes with the deal now Amazon Prime is less than $10 a month. So, if you are using the streaming service and if you’re using Amazon deliveries from online shopping, you begin to see how much bang for your buck you’re getting right away. Honestly, with the discounts you can get on online shopping delivery and things like that, it becomes pretty clear pretty fast how much money that you are actually saving by using Amazon Prime. There are other, smaller parts of Amazon Prime that are really interesting as well. For example, it’s really diverse with the range of services that it offers. For example, I even use the cloud storage on Amazon Prime as like an online storage space for all sorts of media. So, as well as other aspects, it is also feeds into the amount of computer hard drive space I have access to. Which is really interesting.

2 Gift Ideas For The Hubs

By on March 25, 2017

I can’t wait for my husband’s birthday this year. In previous years I have been so nervous. It’s so hard to select a gift for somebody you love. I love him a lot, but that does not mean that I always know exactly what to get him. Right now, I am considering two things: 1) I was browsing around on Survival cooking, who seems to give VERY WELL-WRITTEN reviews about a bunch of products for the outdoors. Those of you who know me and my hubby know that he is all about the camping and outdoors-y things. He loves tailgating, camping, and all the things like that. So I could get him a grill, a stove, a BBQ, something like that. Maybe a tent. OR 2) On the polar opposite side of things, I began looking at the best watches under 500. I know he is not the type to wear fancy things, but I think he would love to have a fancy accessory for classy business events, christmas parties, weddings, meetings, and things like that. He often tells me he feels like a bit of a slob because he doesn’t have anything nice– but then he never buys himself anything nice! The way I see it, sometimes you have to buy your people the thing they won’t buy themselves! I think that is what separates a truly GREAT gift from one that is just nice and good– you know? The fact that it is something that a person doesn’t even REALIZE that they ACTUALLY really really really want! Maybe I am overthinking it, but I think it is important to care about what we give to our loved ones. It is one of the special things in life that we really should not take for granted. I love him lots and hope he loves the gift! — Good thing he never reads my blog!!

Spontaneous Things – The Best in My Life

By on March 15, 2017

I was coming back home from the office. It was a hard day and I’ve got tired a lot. My friend Kate called me and invited me to a BBQ party. Oh, thanks to the God, my prayers were heard. I have been dreaming about this for a long time and, finally, I was going to have a pleasurable time with my friends.  Anyway, I would go somewhere, because I was tired of city life and wanted to have fun with close people. Now I have such wonderful opportunity.

First of all, she asked me to help her with decorations, because I am well-versed with design. She has a Adirindack Cottage with a huge garden around, so there could be lots of interesting and creating ideas. The house was already styled and look great, but some features were missing, such as beautiful chairs and tables. Without any doubt,  we started looking for Adirondack chair. We were offered a wide variety of furniture in the Internet and couldn’t stop on only one product. However, Leigh County Adirondack Chair seemed to be the most suitable in our case. It was made from the cedar and was presented in a white color. What is more, these new chairs are extremely comfortable and my friend was delightful.  Even the price is low, the quality is  still the best and I am sure they will remain the same after years of using. 

Did you know?

The first Adirondack chair was created in 1903 by Thomas Lee, during his holidays in the Adirondack mountains in New York state. Typically, they were made from 11 flat, wooden boards, and the final product would include a flat backrest, as well. Now, the back is often (but not always) rounded, but the original spirit of the Adirondack lives strongly in these innovations, and in many other chairs that are based closely on its design.

When we finished redecorating our house the party has started.

My neighbors could hear the loud voices of my friends. The smoky smells of the food seemed to have spread and we breathed in the delicious aroma of meat and spices.

Unfortunately, the heavy rain prevented us from playing outdoors. We left our new furniture under the rain and my friend was afraid that something could happen with them. But she shouldn’t have worried, because those chairs were waterproof.

In the end, that event changed our lives. No one can deny, this party was amazing and we will have the same party in the future!

Less Stress with Comfort Cam

By on February 11, 2017

People seem to be more worried about buying technological equipment these days. And they are partially right, especially when we talk about the technologies that help us to take care of our babies. We should be more careful. Some old-fashioned people feel scary when they see cameras near children. They usually think that it may be dangerous and may affect children somehow, for example, children’s physiology. I use only tested and high quality equipment. I filter everything around my baby and try to give her only the best. I am crazy about healthy food, natural products, so I try to use less chemical things.

I don’t trust the internet. So, this time I asked for help. A good friend of mine was glad to help me with choosing a camera, which will monitor my newborn baby. He suggested me to buy the ComfortCam, because she has already used it and was extremely happy with it. She shared a link to the website, where I could learn more about this product. I’ve carefully researched the website and decided to buy the ComfortCam.
It was the love from the first sight. I placed it in my daughter’s room and my friend explained me how everything works. She assumed that it is safe for my baby. That was the most important argument!
It is suggested to download a specific app to your phone in order to monitor your baby from the other rooms, or whenever you are. Finally, when everything is installed, I can feel myself more relaxed, so that I can rest a little. While I am lying in another room, Wifi baby monitor controls every movement of my girl and I can hear her.
This camera is easy to care for. Like any other camera, you may need to clean the lens and check the batteries occasionally. Also, you should keep an eye on the amount of used space by videos on the SD card, so you don’t lose any important footage in case the storage is full. Don’t worry to lose your files, because you can always transfer the recorded video from the camera to your computer or other device.
Well, I have been using ComfortCam for a long time and things are still fine. Of course, I had some problems, but I managed to solve them. In my opinion, the ComfortCam is a must for every young mother. It will definitely make your life easier and more colorful. Only imagine that you’re always with your kid, whenever you are!

Great Finds From A Sale: Books On Real Estate Marketing, Crochet, and More

By on February 3, 2017

This blog post isn’t not your ordinary book review article just like what I always do here.

Let me tell you a story first. As I was on my way back home from the grocery store, I saw a garage sale at a corner two streets away from the neighborhood. I intend to just pass them by as I know garage sales just put old clothes, hand-me-downs of every sorts, and other old house materials like kitchen rack or a wooden stool are up for sale. However, a pike of old books caught my attention, causing me to stop on tracks and eye on them for a couple of minutes. As you know, I am a book lover. Its scent, its aroma tickles my nostrils and I get very giddy upon the sight of books waiting to be picked up.

I excitedly sorted the old books out. Carefully, I look in awe as I saw a lot of hardbound ones, magazines, pocketbooks, and dictionaries. I saw another girl who must have also got interested in the sale and we were both scanning the array of books for sale in no time. We were both excited to scan the books in the area that we even forgot it has other customers too who might have been distracted by the pile of books.

I already have some copies of the books that are for sale. I have Charlotte Bronte’s books already, a few reads from Janet Evanovich’s series, Dan Brown’s paperbacks, and even a couple of Nicholas Sparks read. In the side were old stacks of magazines and newsletters.

They have Reader’s Digest back issues too, In Style, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, as well as old issues of celebrity gossip magazines. Aside from novels and dusty old magazines, the pile of books also has textbooks from high school and college, which for me are perfect as I am about to enter college a year from now. Whoever must have owned them was obviously such a voracious reader just like me.

I bought books on farming, accounting, journalism, creative writing, real estate marketing, and even how to do crochet at home! I was really stunned when I saw the book sale that I completely forgot I have an afternoon date with my pal Therese in the nearby ice cream store.

I considered buying a few magazines but I thought of the many copies I bought before that I haven’t opened up. Mom will be very furious if she find out!

Good thing also I did not left my purse at home so I was able to buy the books. They only cost $15 all in all! What a good deal! I plan to come again this weekend together with my sister. I am sure she will love it. I am not just not aware when the garage sale will be closed but I hope I still have time to go there before it closes.

I will never look into garage sales the same way again after I bought books from there. Truly, you’ll find treasure in hand me downs, and even in ways and circumstances you never expected.

What is your reason why you want to create an app? Is it because your business may gain a lot more sales when you delve into app development? Are your target consumers also users of apps?

Here are some of the things you should consider for your app development and app marketing strategy:

For good website builder, they also consider these factors, and a whole lot more before making a move.

2. Effectivity

Is the app effective? Is it helpful? Can it answer a pressing problem of one community? Is it easy to use and navigate? Dwell on these factors first before you start creating the app.

3. Have it reviewed before launching

You do not want to have negative feedback from users who downloaded the app. First, you have to have it for review. Submit them for review in various websites which do the work. Or better yet, test them yourself or let your friends do the critic.
