Any people who have reached qualified age indeed should be able to gain income for their life as well as their family right? The way people gain income may indeed different from each other whether by working or conducting business so that their condition of finance may vary from each other. Especially those who only depend on monthly paycheck, the risk in suffering from finance difficulty is higher than those who conduct business indeed. It is because monthly paycheck may make people to plan for any expenses that they have so that anything unexpected occurs, they may have problem in funding it.
Let’s take an example in the need to fund certain unexpected expenses such as accident; you may notice that sometimes you have no more money to spend right? In this case, the only solution that you can take is by borrowing money, whether from your family or money lenders such as bank. Yet, many people find out that in emergency situation, bank can be considered to be inefficient. Based on such reason, certain alternative choice such as online payday loans can become a great option.
What people need to know about payday loan is that they can apply for loan simpler and faster, even from the internet. The main problem is that such kind of loan offers them higher interest rate to pay compared to any regular loans from bank. So, you need to repay the loan as soon as possible to avoid problems in the future. If you require reference, you can visit Easyonlinepaydayloan.com.
A car may mean more than just a vehicle for us. It can be because it is a car that we have dreamed of owning for years and is difficult to find in the market. Or maybe it is the car that has given us many great memories. Furthermore, a car has lots of functions. It can ensure that our loved ones are covered during their transport to schools or offices during rainy days or even worse, the snowy days. Based on all of those reasons alone, a car needs to be kept on the best shape so it can always function as we expect. However, there are times that accidents happen to our car and repair usually does not come cheap.
To ensure that our car is always on its best shape, we need to invest in a auto insurance. This investment is money well spent. The car insurance will help us repair our precious car when it needs fixing, so we do not need to worry on how we are going to fix it in case we do not have enough money when it breaks. Although we never expect an accident to happen, it happens anyway. So better be ready for the worst case scenario even before it happens.
Is a life insurance beneficial? Of course it is. No matter how advanced our medical treatments have become, there are no ways that you can deny death. When the time comes, there will be no cure in the world that can save us. That is just the way the world works. When we pass, we no longer have to deal with the pain of the world, but this may not be the case with the ones we left. For those who give us special places in their hearts, our demise may become a very sad and devastating event. This is especially true for the family we left behind. And in this devastating event, it may only be fair that we try to ease a little bit of their pain by providing ourselves with a life insurance quote in the case of our demise. With a life insurance, we can make sure that the financial problems of the one we left behind will be solved. This ensures that our spouses are able to continue their lives with the same lifestyle as when we are still alive and our children can have the best education that they deserve for the sake of their future lives.

There are many reasons to have boudoir photographs taken. Each women has her own special combination of reasons that inspire her to take that leap of faith to do these photographs... but to help you with your decision we have compiled a "Top Ten" list to help get you excited and understand just what boudoir is, and what it can do for you and your significant other!
Top 10 Reasons to Have Boudoir Photographs Taken
10. Celebrate a milestone. Getting married? 5, 10, 25 year anniversary? Just turn 25, 30, 40? Just enter into a relationship? Just end one? Hit a goal weight? All perfect reasons to have A M A Z I N G boudoir photographs done. A boudoir photography session will make you feel amazing about yourself in this moment right now, whatever milestone you may be celebrating.
9. It will shock your friends! They are going to see the images of you looking incredible, and be insanely jealous. Most likely they are going to have their own session done too after they see your photos and how it made you feel. You may even start a movement of women who are incredibly sexy and have the photos to prove it.
8. Every woman should have at least one photo (or a whole set of them) that makes them feel so gorgeous that they just get giddy inside!
7. Putting together the outfits is a blast. Sneaking away your man's sports jersey, buying lacy, frilly, pretty new lingerie, or maybe even a costume. Coming up with looks that you love is a really fun part of the whole experience.
6. Because he won't be able to pick his jaw up off the ground! Trust us, speechless won't even begin to describe it. Seeing the woman he loves all done up glamorous and gorgeous is enough to bring any man to his knees. Plus, do you think he would rather have another new tie or shirt... or pictures of you wearing that shirt... or maybe just the tie...
5. To reconnect with the more intimate parts of yourself. Life happens... between school, jobs, kids, husbands, families, friends, volunteering, etc... its EASY to lose sight of the intimate parts of ourselves and our relationships. What better way to rediscover that fire than with a boudoir session?
4. Its about feeling sexy... not getting naked. There are few feelings more powerful than feeling sexy. That can be done a myriad of ways. From barely there lingerie or nothing at all, to shorts and a camisole and sports socks or a football jersey, all can create incredibly fun, flirty, and sexy images. The point is, that decision is up to you! Some girls want to bare it all, some want to bare a little, just remember you are in control. The amount of clothes isn't whats important, its the feeling of being Sexy that we are after. If you feel it, you will look like it!
3. You don't have to do it alone! Everybody is different, some women will want to bring their friends for support, others will want to share the whole experience with somebody and do a dual shoot, still others will want the whole experience to be about them. Whatever the case, we will make it happen. If you have a friend that wants to come along for moral support, bring them! We will give them a comfy place to sit, watch, and comment, and may even have them hold a light, or a reflector, or fan your hair, or something! Heck, even better, book a dual session and share the whole experience. The only thing we discourage is bringing husbands, boyfriends, or otherwise significant others. Half the point of doing this for them, and keeping things under wraps until the images are finished is the best way to really knock their socks off!
2. Because professionals will make you look gorgeous! Ever wonder how the girls in the magazines look SO amazing??? Teams of professionals, that's how! With our most popular packages, from the moment you step in our studio you are being pampered, cared for, coached, primped, plucked, and polished. We work with some of the premier makeup artists and hair stylists in the Hays Kansas and Central Kansas areas. We are familiar with their boudoir work, and its incredible. As a professional boudoir photographer, its our job to take your new glam look to the next level. We will coach your posing and expression until its perfect, and lighting will be done just right to accentuate your best features while diminishing anything you are self conscious about. Full professional retouching is also done to every photograph before you ever see it. We don't change who you are, but we do nip, tuck, smooth, and polish the image to the level you see every day on billboards and magazines. As a husband and wife team who do this for a living, professionalism is paramount to us. We have different viewpoints, and a male and female eye at each session is somewhat unique to us in the boudoir photography profession. We are complete goofballs, and the mood in the studio will be fun and light, and your nervousness will turn into confidence and you will be hamming it up before you know it.

The following comment was made in response to one of my articles about "mid-life "mean girls" behavior"
Great advice! As one who is in her forties I avoid the middle-aged gripe club and referencing my age all time. But I have a question. Maybe the answer is in your e-book, but what do you say to people who claim that doing what you prescribe is denying their age? And what do you think about women who say having a youthful vibe, particularly in dress is "trying to compete with your daughter?"
Let's agree on this: It's stupid to deny your age or that you are aging.
Let's also agree on this: While it's stupid to deny your age or that you are aging, it's smart to engage in deliberate defiance of the vicissitudes of aging. That said, it's not easy to make the effort to fight decline because our human nature prefers ease over effort and the leisure oriented senior culture mindset and lifestyle compound the issue.
When "up there" in years, little is worse than being dependent, particularly if dependence results from failure to engage in positive acts of defiance early on. An example of a positive act of defiance is starting an exercise routine while you still have the strength and capacity to bend and stretch, and sticking with it year in and year out. Continuity of effort produces amazing results needed most in the older years.
As for the charge of "trying to compete with your daughter" - let's face it - many older women DO look as good as their daughters, and can wear their daughters' clothes and look great in them, but I don't think women consciously or deliberately try to compete with their daughters.
When a woman makes a negative comment about another woman's appearance or clothing choices, it may be envy. Or, maybe not. Perhaps it's an honest opinion that something "on trend" for a young woman looks silly on an older woman. For example, older women wearing dresses that seem to be made of barely (no pun intended) a yard of fabric. Upon seeing such sights I am often tempted to utter a childhood expression applicable for confused fashionistas:
"I see London, I see France, I can see your underpants". (And sometimes, even more!)
Perhaps you are not old enough to have heard that expression but as a first grade six year old (waaaay back when) I heard it a lot. A cute classmate's parents owned a clothing shop for young children and Jacqueline always looked picture perfect in her short short flouncy Shirley Temple dresses, a sight that motivated gleeful little boys to let her know they could see her picture perfect lace-trimmed underwear. Never seen a Shirley Temple dress? If you have watched teen idol Selena Gomez energetically bounce up and down around the stage in her short short flouncy dress (to the delight of panting pre-pubescent boys), you have the picture.
I digress. If you are making an effort to hang on to as many youthful attributes as possible, good for you! Do what it takes to keep and improve what you have now. Don't allow disparaging remarks from envious or misguided women about denying your age or competing with your daughter deter you from achieving your goal of healthy, independent, DEFIANT agelessness.

I have had a budget for about 20 years, and when I took a break for a few years, I gradually started spending too much, and realized that I felt guilty no matter how much or how little I bought! When I started budgeting again, I saw the benefit of keeping track of what I was buying, which made me feel much more in control.
Use a Spreadsheet
My husband and I started a household budget when we were first married, and we used Microsoft Excel, but there are other spreadsheet and budgeting products. Even paper and pen will work, just use what you like.
I save receipts for everything that I am budgeting for--clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories. I don't include beauty products or appointments, because they aren't as difficult for me to control. Create categories as you see fit. Keep receipts from these categories in your wallet, or designate a basket or bowl in a prominent place at home, which works well if you are budgeting as a couple for your household. This helps to have them handy for returns as well. If you do return something, make sure you credit your spreadsheet.
Record Purchases Once a Week
Choose a time, for example, Sunday evenings, and sit down, gather your receipts, and record the purchases onto your spreadsheet. This will give you your current balance. If you do this, you will always have a number in your head that's available to spend.
Set a Monthly Budget Amount
This is the hard part, and it's different for everyone. Obviously, you need to be able to afford it, but beyond that, try to come up with what you would like to be spending. You can make it quarterly or weekly amounts if you'd like, but monthly seems the right timing for me.
Keeping my clothing purchases within a budget has helped me to shop more intelligently. I shop at a variety of stores, such as Target, Nordstrom Rack, and consignment, as well as traditional clothing stores. Budgeting also helps me make better use of the clothes I have in my closet, by wearing them more often, but mixing them in different ways. I am more careful with what I buy, making sure it is the right fit and color, and that I really love it. It has helped me to be aware of major store's sales and keeping some money available for those sales.
Using a budget allows you to save up for large purchases you otherwise would think are too expensive or you would feel guilty about. As you purchase items, be very sure you want to keep them and wear them. This can take some time and trial and error, so always save receipts and invest the time to return items that you decide you don't like. Also, if something is in good condition, and can't be returned, sell it at a consignment shop and use that money for new clothes.

There are many other remedies around. The major ones are massages, cream, oils, going under the knife, and detox. This is a complex concern and it's really not unlikely if you're a little exhausted to know what system to take. This really is understandable since there are numerous ways and each one swears it is the best solution.
Due to this dilemma, lets look at the issue so it is understandable and then it'll be easier to realize how to solve the true problem.
The reason 90 percent of women have cellulite is because of atrophied muscles. Atrophied muscles are un-toned muscles fibers. Ladies young and old can get cellulite and it's due to a mixture of hereditary and lifestyle conditions. The atrophied muscles, or un-toned muscle fibers, have this way from soft and un-tight connected tissues. (The good news is that this can certainly be undone but not from cream or anything such as that and you will see why!)
The problem lies beneath the skins surface therefore how can creams, oils, etc. solve the matter? Well, they can't! But what they will be able to do is fix the symptoms on the skins surface, which is the bumps and uneven surface appearance known as cellulite. Unfortunately, this only attempts to fix symptoms while masking the true root issue.
So how should you fix the real problem, and not simply the symptoms?
You get rid of cellulite naturally.
How do you get rid of cellulite naturally?
You get rid of cellulite naturally mainly through specific calisthenic movements. Secondarily, by eating specific foods.
There's more information for you to know, but that is the blueprint to clear out cellulite naturally.
Here is a small example of the complete plan...
Specific calisthenic movements:
Start on all fours onto a carpeted ground. Back flat, legs and arms at 90 degrees to floor, and look forward.
Lift your left leg up and horizontal with your back. Hold for several seconds, you will feel your hamstrings and glutes being exercised. Let your leg down to the floor and move onto the right leg. Complete two sets of ten for each leg.
Stand upright with your feet flat on the ground. Set your legs a lttle bit wider than your shoulders. Keep your arms in front of your legs.
While your upper body straight, begin to squat down. As you are squatting, position your knees directly over your toes. This will work out your glutes. Complete three sets of approximately twenty reps.

Intentional or not, media -which include manufacturer advertising-- has portrayed that bigger breasts are more desirable than small or medium ones so women's preference for large breasts is quite commonplace. True or not, women with rather small breasts want to make them look bigger, if not actually larger, to conform to this 'ideal'. That is one reason bras for small breasts are popular. Where there is a need, there is a market for products, already made or not.
So what are the best bras for small breasts? Many women will automatically reply, 'push up bras', or maybe 'padded bras'. Both answers are often correct, but there are also bras made particularly for small breasts and not just minimized versions of the popular sizes. The latter bras do not consider the possible wearer's physique and other physical configurations, so that wearing that inappropriate bra often results in discomfort.
Hence the best bras for small breasts are those that fit the wearer as a bra should.
The problem is, like the others, in finding those bras.
To do that you need to take several steps. First is, have yourself measured. About 85% of women is said to use the wrong-size bra, mostly unintentionally because they did not know their sizes. So to get the correct bra for small breasts you must know your measurements.
Next, decide on what you want. Is it a push up bra? Push-inward? What padding: air, water, foam, gel? Or do you want a simple, no-frills bra that is nice and comfortable to wear all day? By knowing what you want you can narrow your search for your bra to only a few styles and brands, instead of looking over all available bras.
Check the designs you decided on, to imagine how they may fit you. Searching online is the quickest and simplest way, where you can see the pictures of bras for small breasts and their descriptions. Doing so will further narrow your search parameters and ease your efforts, as well as give you a glimpse of the possibilities bras for small breasts can give in terms of looks.
Understand the right way to put on a bra. Slip the bra on without hooking it, bend forward so your breasts hang down, and put your breasts into the cups, moving the bra as needed. Without straightening, close the clasp at the back, then straighten and adjust the band. It should be about midway between your elbows and shoulders and horizontal. You must be able to insert into the band only a finger or two, but the band should feel only snug, not tight.
Finally, go to the stores and test fit their available bras for small breasts in the designs you want. You must be comfortable wearing it even for a short time, since if not, it will be less comfortable in the longer run. Be sure to get the bras that flatter your breasts and physique, like the balconette design, and with just slight padding, since to make your breasts look two sizes bigger will be preposterous.

But while the proposal was something more or less out of my control (all women have a few tricks in that area of course) the invitations were my chance to express my own individual and my personal feelings and excitement towards the big day. In honor of all the people who helped me through that process, and for everyone else looking at it for the first time, here are the major four ideas most people go with for their wedding invitation creation.
1. Getting a stock, preformatted invitation. I hesitate to write this, but if you are looking for invites that are cheap and fast, this is your option. The downsides? Always order samples first because you might not know whether or not what you order is the same quality as what you expect. Also, customization is what makes your invitation unique to you and your wedding-don't just pick a preformatted style and plug in your own words on a form.
2. Local custom creators. Visiting your local wedding expo you can often find semi-professional wedding invitation designers, many of whom work from home. Every individual is different and has different pricing, services, and availability-but the advantage is in the personal touches. Typically these individuals can find you the ink, paper, and create the images and accents that you are looking for so that your project can be totally unique.
3. Online creation. Big props to MiDesign@Michaels.com a for this one. Creating invitations online has never been easier, or more fun. Basically the technology has caught up with imagination so that you can easily use starting templates and formats, order samples to see if they are what you are interested in, and then customize EVERYTHING. Want different color ribbon? Done. Different ink? Same price. Need to change the wording or formatting? You can mess with the files as many times as you want before ordering and having the invites shipped to your local Michaels or to your home. The advantages are price, convenience, customization, and professional quality. The downside? You still have to stuff them all-but that's just how it goes for all wedding invites.
4. DIY wedding invitations. For those of us who are themselves rather crafty, do-it-yourself can be a great option for saving money and getting the exact results that you want without negotiation with a company or individual. The disadvantage would be time involved, as cutting, printing, and tying pieces together for even a hundred invitations can take days after you figure out the design you want. The process can be sped up significantly by ordering pre-cut DIY wedding invites parts and pieces from MiDesign@Michaels.com, still saving some cash but also letting you sidestep some of the more involved steps in putting your invites together as you want them.

Your Fashion Statement Can Reflect the Real You
If a person is described to have a Gothic style of fashion, people almost always have this notion that it is a morbid one. Reason being that women who prefer this kind of look often have their natural light brown hair color dyed into a deep black one. In addition, they color their lips black, apply dark eyeliner and complement their overall look with dark make up but a pale visage with dark/black nail polish and clothing. The use of Gothic dress corset, in addition to your own Gothic dress collection, if you already have some will often prove to be a good decision in the end. For some women, adopting this kind of fashion sense is their way of expressing their deepest thoughts. Some wanted to be radical and go against the usual norms of society, adopting the Gothic fashion. Some would just want to stand out above the rest. While the reasons may vary on women observed to have a Gothic style of fashion, a Gothic dress corset is a must have in the closet.
What is a Gothic Dress Corset?
Did you know that the Gothic dress corset has its roots dating back to the Victorian era? It is a style of clothing designed to flatter the shape of a woman's body, much like that of an hourglass. From the early ages of fashion history, it is evident that this style of clothing is actually used to enhance the sexuality of women. It places high regard on a woman's figure, hence it enhances it.
When the use of Gothic dress corset became a word of mouth among women and married couples, it is not at all that comfortable to wear one. But gradually, through time, the designs were refined to make it more comfortable to wear and provide ease of movement. The fabrics used then were softer and as much as possible should not cause rashes or irritation on the skin. There are a number of Gothic dresses that one can choose from such as fishnets and lace trimmed long skirts and match those with your choice of silver ornaments. Fishnets can be worn as jumpers and shirts; as well they can also be worn on the legs and arms. If accessories would be needed to complete your Gothic look, a wide brimmed dark hat or a black umbrella would be a good addition. Actually there is no specific standard to follow in order to achieve that Gothic look, as it all depend on the person's creativity. Thus, it is safe to say we could only be limited by our very own imagination.
Enhancing Your Sexuality With Gothic Fashion Sense
It is very evident that Gothic fashion as well as Gothic dresses seems to give women a certain level of power, of mystery and of desirability. It makes them all the more attractive and bewitching and this is an important aspect to look upon in order to keep a long and lasting relationship. There are various kinds of Gothic dresses that one can choose from, here are just a few to pick from:
• Gothic dress corset
• Fishnet stockings
• Gothic symbols go for your accessory (skulls, ankh, pentagrams to name a few)
As earlier mentioned, a Gothic dress corset flatters a woman's figure. It helps define her sexuality and this kind of Gothic clothing is used mostly by couples who wanted to add more life and excitement to their married life. It creates an aura of dynamic persona in a woman wearing it, helping her to take things under her control and under her command.

Many women brag that they know how to dress themselves or they have the "in" thing for style. However, the truth is most women often fall victim to fashion blunders and are targets to the preying eyes of the teasing public. It is best that women should be more open to hear out new ideas about how to dress well and how to choose women's clothing properly since sticking with that same old habit of just going with the trend may mean repeating the same fashion mistakes over and over again.
Timeless Vs Trendy Styles
Most women these days love to wear the latest fashion fad. Although, wearing the "in" thing provides a fresh, exciting and relevant feel to the wardrobe, timeless style shouldn't be neglected at all. That's why they are called timeless because they can be used anytime regardless of the latest trend. Wearing dresses with simple yet elegant lines works almost every time even if you don't become the aisle head turner or the spark up the runway. You should also bear in mind that not all trendy styles are for you. For example, in as much as skinny jeans are commonly used nowadays, you should better think twice in wearing them most especially if you look far better with timeless A-line skirts.
Sometimes, wearing that LBD (little black dress) takes you anywhere. A chic black timeless look is very versatile because of its neutrality. You can wear it as itself or add a little accent of color. Some add leather jackets to elevate the look further. It is also one of the easiest choices that women can make. When you have nothing left in your closet other than your LBD, don't hesitate to wear it because there are a lot of methods to pull it off. Don't become one of those fashion victims who always try to use the latest trends. Oftentimes, they end up wearing too much trendy stuff at once that they already look very odd.
The Right Color and Fit
Don't be afraid to experiment with color. Sometimes, wearing clothes that have vibrant colors emphasizes your skin. Find your best color in violet, pink and blue among many others. Nonetheless, some prefer to wear black most especially if they want to hide those extra pounds. In this connection, you should also buy clothes that fit your form but not too fit. The fit should also include the correct dress and hem lengths that suit your body length right.
Dressing Appropriately With Meticulous Attention To Details
Dressing right for the occasion is also a very common tip that isn't followed by some women. No matter how gorgeous you look, you will surely raise eyebrows if you don't follow the cocktail attire or formal affair dress codes. In addition, you must be wary about the tiniest details about what you wear. Because several women like to match their attire with some handbag, scarf or other accessory, they should make sure that the combination is not too overpowering. Pay close attention to details because sometimes, women's clothing is best without any form of accessory.

Focus on the material of your clothing. It is vital that you read the label to see what materials went into making the garment. If the clothes fits now, it may not fit after you wash it several times. Don't waste money on clothing that is likely to shrink, fray, or lose its shape.
If you are dealing with a problem with frizzy hair, never rub it with a towel after washing it. This can damage your hair and cause more frizziness. Rather than towel drying it, simply wrap it up in a towel and push on it to let out most of the wetness. When drier, comb your hair to the style that you desire.
Make sure that you do not overspend on clothes as you should always budget. Since you are trying to improve your wardrobe you are going to want to limit yourself on how much you spend. This way you know that you aren't overspending on improving your wardrobe. You can still get a lot of clothes on a budget, you just have to be smart about it.
When it comes to hair accessories, there are millions of options available. Hair accessories are things like hair bows, headbands and ponytail holders, but they also include hair extensions. Your wardrobe should have several of these. When you feel like going casual, grab a ponytail holder and wear your hair back. When going away, be sure to bring headbands that match your outfits.
Combining white with black is a perfect combination that is fashionable this season. There are many outfits on the runway that use this combination. It's so simple to create black and white combinations using just a shirt and pants or a dress. In the world of black and white combinations, the possibilities are infinite.
Unique fashion really sets you apart. Have some messy hair, don't button your shirt all the way, or pick out shoes that don't really match. Being perfect is impossible, so embracing a little chaos in your look can help you stand out from the crowd.
If you desire to have fuller lips, there are ways to get it without going the cosmetic surgery route. A light colored pink gloss or shiny finished lipstick can do the trick. When the gloss reflects light, it gives the illusion of fuller lips. Dark lipstick can cause your lips to look too thin and should be avoided.
Allow your clothes the room that they need in your closet. Having too many garments in too tight a space can stretch them and then they do not fit as well anymore. There should always be one or two inches of space between clothing items in the closet.
To make an ornate skirt stand out better, pair it with a plain t-shirt. Just make sure your top isn't too bright or it will overpower your skirt.
When you want to wear black jeans to a more formal event, heels and a dressy blouse can make the outfit appropriate. Colored jeans look better with more casual looks.

John Assarf one of the authors of the best selling book "The Secret" started a frenzy when he told his testimony of how he put a photo of a multi million dollar home on his "vision board" and after a few years of meditating, and focusing on his dreams he eventually moved into the house on his vision board. "The Secret" caused a reading frenzy everyone went out to purchase the book, making it a best-seller, thinking the tips in the book "The Secret" was just that simple. Just put some photos on a poster and look at it daily and you will eventually have the life of your dreams. How about not!!! The life of your dreams can be acquired. But the tips to acquiring the life of your dreams off of your vision board takes a few more steps and keys that John Assarf and the members of The Secret had stated.
Check out 5 steps to producing results AND living the life of your dreams.
Write the Vision and make it plain: Make sure your vision is clear and to the point. The vision board tool works if you are clear about what you want. If you want a certain car put THE car you want not one like it. Make sure your vision is clear and to the point. That's how you produce the desired results.
Believe that you can truly have producing results: John Assarf and the authors of "The Secret" did say to believe. The bible goes a step further it says it may vary but wait for it and it will surly come. It doesn't say it might come it will TRULY. So when it looks like you are NOT producing results and getting the life of your dreams. Keep believing anyhow!
Be Patient: Sometimes people think because they have and know all the keys or steps to take the desired results will instantly happen. Nothing comes to a quitter. To produce the desired results you must be a person that won't give up in the mist of the storm. You must still keep pushing even when it seems to take a long time to getting the life of your dreams.
ACT: Ok so once you keep believing and writing you vision. You begin to make it plain and clear, to produce results and getting the life of your dreams you must ACT on an opportunity. The bible says "faith with out works is dead." So just believing and trusting that your desired results will happen, but NOT acting on the opportunity will NOT help you in any way shape form or fashion. You have to POUNCE on the opportunity to produce results!!
Remain Thankful at ALL times: The last and final step into producing your desired results is to continue to be thankful at all time. See you reap what you sow. If you are always negative and ungrateful, those are the things that will come back to you. But if you are thankful at any and all times. More things to be thankful for will come back to you. The Magic comes with being grateful.

The outside shape of the ring is probably the single most important factor. For maximum comfort, a tungsten wedding band that is rounded or domed shaped on the outside is best. This is because there are no sharp edges resting against the fingers on either side of the ring finger. Some people like flat pipe cut design rings, but the edges of these rings could irritate the fingers on either side of the ring finger due to the non-tapered edges of this ring style. If one absolutely loves this style of ring, but want to ensure maximum comfort, one can always make sure the edges are rounded. This will be more comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Another option is to get a flat shape ring, but with beveled edges. This style makes the edges tapered, kind of like a domed shape ring, but not rounded. This type of style gives the rings more lines, is a flat style, but will not have protruding edges that could be uncomfortable.
Many tungsten carbide rings, especially cheap ones, are made with poor craftsmanship. One of the consequences of poor craftsmanship is ring thickness. The manufacturer did not want to take the time to machine the ring to a thickness that is thick enough so the ring will not crack or break easily, yet thin enough so it will be comfortable to wear. In general, a size 10.0 8 mm wide tungsten wedding band for men should not be more than 2.3 mm thick. Too thick and the ring will feel bulky and uncomfortable. Too thin and the edges will feel sharp and cut into the finger.
The third factor to consider is the width of a tungsten wedding band. Tungsten rings come in a great variety of widths these days; from 2 mm to 20 mm wide. Most men will wear 8 mm wide and women tend to choose 4 mm. Wider bands can become uncomfortable unless they are made with comfort fit, which means the inside is rounded to slide on and off the finger with ease. Some guys who are not used to wearing jewelry opt for a 4 mm ring. It is perfectly fine for men to wear a 4 mm. There is no rule that says only women can wear 4 mm rings.

Believe it or not there are women whose breasts grew wide apart nearing the tips, so that the nipples and areolas are pointing outwards, left and right. While this is really not a deadly sin, it looks awkward to have full ends but virtually nothing in-between. Most breasts project forward so that to have outward-pointing breasts somehow feels different, if not 'freaky'. Sure it could be a conversation starter between women, but who'd want to be talked about this way?
The solution would be a 'push in bra'. Not only does it correct things in the looks department but it also gives you confidence and poise. The problem, however, is finding such bras with the best fit.
Even if you search online for 'push in bras' you would most probably get results showing 'push up bras'. That's because not many people are very familiar with the 'push in bra', so there is a dearth of information even over the Internet, and because people often confuse the bra with the 'push up bra'. (Actually there is very little difference between the two.)
A 'push in bra' is one that, as its name indicates, pushes the breasts inward and a little up to present a better cleavage, while a 'push up bra' simply lifts the breasts for the same end. A 'push in bra' can be underwired, seamed or molded, or combinations of two or all these styles. 'Underwired' means the bra is formed into shape by a bent wire sewn into the bra's underside. The wire retains the bra's rounded lower shape for a better 'presentation' as well as support the breast from sagging.
Usually a 'push in bra' has inserts or fillets that push the breasts in the desired direction--- in and up--- particularly for those with smaller breasts. What results is a rounder form that may appear bigger, but certainly better in the way of decolletage and cleavage. However, for large breasts, inserts, fillets or padding may not be needed. The cup is simply fashioned to do its job of supporting and shaping the breast for the same purpose of enhancing the appearance.
Not every 'push in bra' is correct for you, though. In the same way that a person is unique, so bra needs differ between individuals. The factors to consider when selecting the correct bra are the cup form and size, with the material and styling secondary. The first two factors are vital in that such bras are usually half-cup or something like that, to show the cleavage when worn with a low-cut dress. Thus the bra must support the breast in the correct form; otherwise you might have the problems euphemistically termed 'four boobs', pointed torpedoes' or both.
The first is when the breast spills over the bra so much it creates another mound over that of the bra itself, the result of a too-small cup or wrong design. The second is when the bra cup is too pointed that instead of presenting only a rounded cleavage, two points project out as well like low ice cream cones. It negates what could have been a great decolletage.

Since then, their popularity among celebrities and designers alike has grown. These chunky accessories have remained hot topics for 2012 and remain relevant in forecasts of accessory trends for the near future.
Many of us have seen a piece of geode jewelry, but perhaps we are unfamiliar with the term. A geode is basically a hollow rock filled with crystals, commonly associated with desert regions. If you've ever visited one of our dryer states, chances are that you've encountered a geode in a local souvenir shop. Geodes have been used in various pagan rituals, however, are more commonly used to decorate fish tanks or as paperweights. Now, the hollowed rocks have been sliced and cut to create beautiful and unique rings, pendants, bracelets, and necklaces of all sorts.
Quite a few retailers offer their geode creations to the world for purchase. Brooks Brothers presents a stunningly simple design for $78. A turquoise piece of microcrystal sits prettily surrounded in gold, while an additional tear drop of gold adds charm to the design. Guess offers matching rings, earrings, and a necklace. All have a similar design featuring "Guess" written in black on a gray nodule. Gems sit encrusted in gold in the very center of the geode, giving a little bit of sparkle to each piece. The necklace alone is priced at $125. Oscar de la Renta also offers a rich, jewel-toned necklace priced at $825. The necklace, set in gold, features gentle ruffle detailing that borders each nodule piece. Tiny gems have been strategically set at the border of each geode to add a little sparkle to the look.
Other designs include embellishments of gems, pearls, flowers, and sometimes rhinestone encrusted characters. Etsy.com seems to host a wide selection of handmade geode jewelry and for the bargain shopper, geode pieces set in sterling silver can be purchased off of eBay for as little as $7.99.
How to Wear...
Geode pieces give an "earthy" feel to an outfit that oozes class and luxury. We have seen these accessories paired with evening gowns on the red carpet as well as with jeans and a tee to give a little spice to an otherwise ordinary ensemble.
Choose colors that are natural if opting for an imitation piece. Turquoises, pinks, purples, blues, and earth tones are some of the hues that nature created. If unsure, Google or Bing it!
Chunky pieces should be treated as statement pieces. These bulky and eye catching items should be worn with an outfit that is solid in color. Many designers pair geodes with like colors to give a monochromatic feel to the ensemble while others have gone with contrast. Nevertheless, a chunky piece of geode should be the focus of your outfit.
Smaller pieces can be worn with patterned shirts and tees to accentuate your style. These pieces feel a little less formal and can be layered with other metallic accessories. Monica Gellar - I mean Courtney Cox - does an excellent job sporting a printed tank with a simple geode hanging on a long gold necklace.

One of the more important things that can happen, however, is when we have a child. It is an event that is not to be forgotten, so when it is time to have the baby shower, you must make sure that everything is planned out in advance. Although there certainly are many different things that need to be considered when it comes to planning a baby shower, here are a few tips that can help the day to go as smoothly as possible.
The first thing that you should consider is the fact that most baby showers are not going to require any type of elaborate designs. As a matter of fact, with a few simple ideas, you can often put a baby shower together that is going to be one of the best that anyone invited has ever attended. Of course, the design of the baby shower and the ideas that you use are going to depend in large part upon the expectant mother. Make sure you understand her likes and dislikes before choosing a theme for the shower, as that can certainly help to sway your decision.
The invitations are something that should be considered very carefully. You should theme the invitations in the same way that you selected the theme for the shower itself. It helps to put people in the mood for the shower and can give them a little bit of a taste of what to expect once they arrive. In some cases, you can hand write the invitations which will give a little bit of a personal touch. You may also want to choose some of the invitations that are available online, as they can be rather unique as well. Just make sure that you keep them consistent and you will find that it is much easier for you as a result.
What is going to be chosen for the new child? The gifts that are given are often going to be determined by the registry that is chosen by the expectant mother. In some cases, the registry may exist in more than one location. Don't be afraid, however, to step outside the lines to a certain extent. Keep in mind, most new mothers are not going to realize exactly how many baby burp cloth or hooded towels they may need to take care of the child. They may think that just a handful of these items is going to suffice but as many of us know, babies tend to go through these items very quickly.
When it is time for the big day, make sure that everything is set up in advance. Enlist the help of some of your closest friends to make sure that the decorations and the setup are taken care of properly. Set up each individual table and then work on the exterior of the room, putting up any decorations that may be available. Once that is completed, you will be ready for the big event.

The feeling that starts with the smell of the fine leather, the feel of the shoe in the hand, the way your eye is drawn to the detail in the stitching, the lining the subtle marking on the sole identifying the type of leather used. Hand made in Italy by artisans from the finest leathers, python skin, crocodile or suede to provide a feeling on the foot never before experienced in a high heel. The first few steps and you are transformed by the glamour the impeccable style and design, they are graceful and sensitive to the foot providing comfort in even a 5 inch heel. The first time in designer heels is for many of us a defining moment, heads will turn, compliments will abound and a lifelong love affair has begun.
The obsession many of us have with designer high heels can seem to some as bizarre and overindulgent with the price of a pair of heels often referred to as outrageous and even obscene and I have no intention of defending or debating that view. I can only add that for me personally designer high heel shoes and boots are worth every penny.
Designers are always at the leading edge of innovation and creativity. They have a love, dedication, passion and skill that shines through in their work producing at times what can only be described as masterpieces. Iconic shoes that can define a generation, heels that can capture a moment in history and preserve it or timeless classics that convey the same stylish understated elegance today as they did 50 years ago.
Although high heels have been around for a long time designer high heels are relatively modern. As women become more independent and have a greater disposable income all designer products not just shoes are becoming more affordable. Although seen as prohibitively expensive, it is possible for most women to own at least one pair of designer heels and as the fashion world is in constant flux and tastes change many luxury designer labels are available on sale at a very reasonable price. One pair of handmade Italian all leather heels will outlast countless pairs of poorly made, mass manufactured shoes and provide the wearer the luxury and style she deserves.
I would like in conclusion to state my heartfelt and passionate belief that the joy and pleasure that many of us get from owning and wearing beautiful designer high heel shoes provide the perfect panacea to the increasingly hectic lifestyles we live.

Although it may have only been a few minutes ago, do you remember grabbing your handbag, car keys, travel mug, climbing into your vehicle - SUV, CUV or just a plain old sedan - and heading off to work?
When you left the house, did you give your handbag much thought? Like most people, the answer probably is no. Whether your bag is really a Birkin or just a TJ Maxx special, it is important to you because it holds your entire life - in microcosm, of course - inside. Since it is so important, if you are considering a new handbag, make sure that it is up to any situation.
When the time arrived to make the purchase did you think about it in terms of longevity, good looks or cost? It's a legitimate question because:
- A handbag that is poorly made won't last long; could find yourself with you "life story" spilling on the street or subway when some cheap seam let go.
- A handbag that is better made will cost you more and it will provide more protection to the important items you keep inside. Such a handbag should have double-stitched seams, multiple compartments and will also feature a secure clasp.
- A handbag that is unique or custom-made will be able to stand up to normal, daily use, as well as any abuse it may face from the daily jostle on the street car platform or the bus station where crowds are particularly thick and thin.
Once you get home, after a particularly trying train or bus ride, following a horrendous day at the office where your temper may be very worn, you should be sure that not only will your uniquely designed and custom-built handbags stand up to the train, bus or your temper, but that it will handle any indignities at home, brought on by a slowly slipping temper. Will it survive a 25-foot toss to a tabletop? Or, will it be up to a slam on a coffee table, followed by a quick flip to a couch or bed another 10 or 15 feet away? This makes a very good case for a custom handbag, doesn't it?
Specialty Bag Features
For example, if you purchase a custom-built bag, you will be happy with the choice. Bags made by custom manufacturers will not only take the daily use and abuse, but, at the same time, a well-made bag makes the owner feel happy. It would not be out of line to say that a custom-built bag will make the owner believe that the handbag was built especially for her arm.
Given the importance of finding the handbag that feels as if it has been made for you, here are some features to consider in your shopping. First, though the manufacturer may make thousands of handbags per day, the bag should still feel as if its manufacturer had made it just for you. It follows, that when you pick it up, it should feel as if it were made by a custom bag manufacturer just for you.
You must also look closely at:
- The seams - are they double-stitched and hand-finished or does it feel "thrown together?"
- The seams be manufacture-red of quality materials and the finish work such as stitching must be high-quality, using a good leather and high-strength thread.
- There are two seam stitching options, a chain stitch which is naturally stronger, although a double running stitch will also ensure a strong handbag base.
- Look closely at the handbag's closure. The best closure results will be from a zippered bag where the zipper handle is tucked out of the way in its own enclosure.
- Look at the quality of the closure mechanism. As discussed, a zippered, protected enclosure is best, however, if the manufacturer finished the bag as a fold-over with a magnetic clasp, the bag is still worth a close look as this is actually quite secure. The extra material and clasp will keep your valuables safe.
