Five things you can do with mirrors to reflect your sense of style

Every home has at least one mirror.  You will find them in all sorts of shapes, sizes, styles and finishes. Just like a lamp, a mirror has the ability of making a space appear brighter and be lighter in feeling. That is why I usually use these two items as selling accessories to create pleasant environment that people always enjoy.

When you use mirrors the right way, it could make a space appear larger and reflect a beautiful view. If however it is placed on a wrong spot, it could reflect a “bad or unflattering view”. Below are five things I do with them to achieve the desired effect depending on design style.

1. I group a few small mirrors that have a similar theme together in a cluster format. This creates a great conversation piece and at the same time, makes the small mirrors feel more important! Most people think that the very small mirrors belong to the ladies handbag. I am pleased to inform you that they do not have to be confined in there. Bring them out and see the great difference they can bring into a room.

2. There are times when I use a mirror as a serving tray. For this to work, I first place protective felt pads on the back. This protects surfaces from being scratched by it. Then I use a centre piece on it like flickering candles, artificial flowers or any other piece that blends in well with the rest of the deco to reflect my sense of style.

3.  When I feel like producing “sparkle magic” in a room, I combine lamps with mirrors. The effect is simply magical. You should try it!

4. I love impressing people and of course, I do it elegantly. When I use floor mirrors, I achieve this effortlessly. The ones that are more dramatic and effective are those that are between 6’ to 8” tall and 42” to 60” wide. People may be tempted to walk through it. To avoid them from  thinking it is a pass- through opening, I usually place them on the floor at a slight angle with a solid piece like a small chair, bench, chaise, floral or sculpture.

5. When I want to show off, I place a small mirror on a console, chest or side piece off to one side in front of another mirror, painting or tapestry that is hanging on the wall. This helps me to achieve a world travelled layered effect.

SEO is the key to Success

SEO is of two types: On-site SEO & Off-site SEO. There are certain factors which measures the peak of your SEO:  articles

1) TITLE: Make sure you give proper and complete title to your article. The title should clearly express the body of your article. You should include important keywords (i.e. topics included in your article) in the title of your article so that search engines get better idea of what is inside your

1) QUALITY: By quality, we simply mean writing a good piece of article with no room for grammar, spelling and formatting errors. Your article should clearly talks of the topic it has been written about i.e. it should smartly match up with the TITLE of your article. And your article should be longer enough to accommodate all the information concerned with that topic. It is necessary that you highlight important keywords/phrases/terms/queries in the body of your article so that search
engines could lay more emphasizes on those terms. Make sure that your articles are free of grammar and spelling mistakes as search engines usually demote poorly written articles.

SEO--The key to the success of the network business ?????-??????

3) BACKLINKS: Above two points comes under on-site SEO. Now we will talk about off-site SEO. Backlinking is the best method for doing off-site SEO. Backlinking simply means linking articles from other related websites. It is one of the highly stressed factors in order to boost search engine rankings for any article. So whenever you publish a article with us, always try to backlink it from other websites thereafter.

How does the Amino Liquid Diet work?

Dr. Humble Finsand with the help of homeopathic experts and top European scientists formulated The LiquidAmino Diet (LAD). The plan combines a low glycemic diet with specially formulated “Amino Diet Plus” drops. It is said to have been cautiously formulated to consist of ingredients that work together with the body to assist in proper endocrine function, improved metabolism, and rapid weight loss. In just one month, dieters are guaranteed weight losses between 15 and 30 pounds.

This diet works in three phases. In the first phase which lasts between 30 and 90 days with a 1000 calorie daily allowance, dieters start using the drops and commence a low-glycemic diet that includes healthy fats, lean protein, beans, fruit and vegetables. If after 90 days you have not lost the desired weight, you can go back to phase one after completing phase two. In the second phase, dieters don’t take the drops in order to prevent their bodies from going into starvation mode, which may possibly lead to reduced metabolism.  In addition to the foods in the phase one plan, you can consume small portions of oatmeal and whole-grain bread. The daily calorie allowance also increases to 1500. In the third and final phase, you maintain your weight loss by observing a healthy lifestyle. You can also include more sugars and starches in the diet.

Although the liquid amino drops are only taken during the first phase, dieters are required to take fish oil capsules, a vitamin supplement, and a scoop of protein powder in all three phases. This plan is one of many popular diets that apply a combination of healthier eating. There is a catch; you are not allowed to eat after dinner while on this diet. This is because it disrupts your hormones and consequently slows your progress. Many dieters record success in the first two phases then only those who are determined make it through the third phase. Some people tend to go back to unhealthy lifestyle. 

On the down side however, there is no guidance for dieters when it comes to exercise. Too much exercise would be dangerous while too little may not help you lose weight considering it is a low calorie diet. Furthermore, the drops only are very expensive to acquire; a 30-day supply of drops costs $97 making it about $300 for 90 days. So can it be categorised as one of the safest way to lose weight?  You be the judge.

The meaning of life from a mother’s point of view

Life is full of uncertainties
I sit here thinking
Scared I must admit
With no power or control
God is my only guide

What would I do without you
Where would I go if I lost you
This life will have no meaning                                                                                  
That I say while tearing

Knowing it’s beyond me
Hoping and praying
I ask God to keep you safe
All the days of your life

May he grant me today
This wish in my heart
For me to always be there
In each and every step of the way

To see you grow into a man
That my grandchildren
And your grandchildren
We may see

The Best Diet Tips

Diet Coke, 12-Ounce Cans (Pack of 24)

Q: Doctor, I’ve heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life.  Is this true? 
A: Your heart only good for so many beats, and that it... Don't waste on exercise.  Everything wear out eventually.  Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster.  Want to live longer?  Take nap.  

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A:  No, not at all.  Wine made from fruit.  Brandy is distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way.  Beer also made of grain.  Bottom up!


Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have body and you have fat, your ratio one to one.  If you have two bodies, your ratio two to one, etc.


Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of single one, sorry.  My philosophy is: No pain...good!
Q:  Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A:  YOU NOT LISTENING!  Food are fried these day in vegetable oil.  In fact, they permeated by it.  How could getting more vegetable be bad for you?!?  


:  Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle? 
A: Definitely not!  When you exercise muscle, it get bigger.  You should only be doing sit-up if you want bigger stomach.  


Q:  Is chocolate bad for me?  
A:  Are you crazy?!?  HEL-LO-O!!  Cocoa bean!  Another vegetable!  It best feel-good food around!


Q:  Is swimming good for your figure?  
A:  If swimming good for your figure, explain whale to me..


Q:  Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?  
A:  Hey!  'Round' is shape!  
Well... I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.

The Complete Master Cleanse: A Step-by-Step Guide to Maximizing the Benefits of The Lemonade Diet 

And  remember:

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"





For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health.  It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.  

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.


3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.


4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans..  


5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.


Eat and drink what you like.
 Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Can health IT solve our doctor shortage?

Date: Jan 11, 2013

Perhaps the greatest risk in policy discussions, when it comes to the topic of health IT, is the relentless potential for irrational exuberance. No doubt, constant technological change will manage to solve or ameliorate many problems across our healthcare system, but it seems the better of wisdom to err on the side of caution when projecting exactly what magic technology will produce next.Read more

How to get more traffic to your articles?

There is one thing that you as a writer should never under estimate. Never think that your old articles are useless. They are as good as the new ones.You just need a proper strategy to monetize them. Here we are just going to discuss some of those strategies that can help boost traffic as well as revenue for you. I hope you guys seriously follow them:

1) Quality: This is the very important factor for any kind of article to gain mass traffic. Remember that nobody will read your article and recommend it to others if it is not properly written and if it is not to the point. Apart from this always ensure that your article is fresh, original, in proper English, free of all the spelling and grammatical errors and properly cited. 

2) Promotion: Once you have written your article, it is time to promote it. Now there are two types of promotions: long term promotion and instant promotion. Instant promotion as the name suggests gains you good amount of visitors in a short period of time using the sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Stumbleupon, Digg, etc. However this kind of traffic lives for very short time period. The better method is to promote your articles using much stable methods which keep on generating traffic to your articles for longer time period. This includes SEO (search engine optimization), backlinking, blogging, word of mouth promotion , etc. 

3) Internal linking: Do you write around the same subject in more than one article? Then you should make proper use of internal linking method. By this term, we mean that whenever you write about the same subject in more than one article, you should always link an old article from the fresh one. While doing this, please make use of anchor tags, so that search engines can properly read your links and rank them higher in their results. While Internal linking is a good strategy to boost up your search engine rankings, you are suggested not to overly do it as it could spoil your search engine rankings either as search engines are smart enough these days and they will consider your this action as spam thus degrading your article value.

Top 5 ways to make money online

Make Money Online: How I Created a Six Figure Income Giving Away a Dead Guy's Book

  1. Freelance websites

These offer all sorts of jobs in virtually any field you can think of. Ok, except practising medicine and law… you could land a job of your dreams with a high pay. You could check out Elance and/or oDesk to see if there are any that interest you.

2. Publishing websites

Publishing websites are the bet for freelance writers. What I like about them is that you get published almost instantaneously and you can write on anything you like including poetry, reviews, news, politics, recipes, personal experiences and so on. Different websites work differently in terms of payment and how to post your articles. My personal favourites are Helium, Wikinut and ExpertColumn.

3. Blogging

People are known to make massive cash blogging. To be successful, you need to find a niche you are comfortable in and blog away. The catch is to create catchy contentment that will drive massive traffic to you blog. The content also needs to be relevant. You could then use Google adsence or the pay per click advisement. You could also use affiliates programs. The best part is that you do not need any extra capital as there are countless free blogs out there.

4. Sales

You could sell goods or services online. This can be through an affiliate program or you could open up your own online store.

5. YouTube
You can create viral videos or many videos that bring you good traffic from YouTube users.

“Video makers can earn money from advertising via the site's partner programme, a scheme aimed at regular uploaders with big audiences. Basically, this means you share in the revenue generated when people watch. Partners must agree to YouTube allowing "relevant" adverts to be placed alongside, and even within, their videos and earn money based on a combination of "impressions" (views) and "clicks" (how many people click on the ad). "Pre-roll advertising" – those often annoying ads you have to watch before the video starts playing – can be particularly lucrative, as advertisers are willing to pay more. All of this means the amount of money you can earn will vary dramatically. However, YouTube insists that "partners will always get the majority of the [ad] revenue". There are more than 20,000 partners worldwide. While the site wouldn't disclose how many there are in Britain, it claims it has seen a "seven-times increase" in the number of UK partners earning more than $10,000 (around £6,460) a year, plus a 154% increase in revenues received”.

How freelancers make money online

This is what freelancers need to know before they sign up to a freelance website

There are numerous freelance/freelancing websites out there. Most of them, if not all, pride themselves as the best outsourcing and freelance website for all forms of businesses. I have personally tried a few of them. I must say, they are indeed a global workplace. Since I started work as a freelancer, I have learnt a few things: 

Always beware of fraudulent activities. These may a times be presented as projects by prospective employers or buyers seeking freelancers. These projects are usually fraudulent in nature but a new freelancer may not realize this in good time. A pointer that one can use to check whether the said project may be fraudulent is by looking out for disputes especially in the payment method at the very beginning.  You may also realise that these projects always tend to offer very little payment as opposed to the workload. If you also find that the project description as advertised does not match the actual work, there is a high probability it is fraudulent.  Most of these jobs come as data entry jobs or easy typing jobs.

If an employer is genuine, they will not ask you to log in to another website to start work before engaging you on a contract from your freelancing website. A genuine employer/buyer will always guarantee the payment by giving you an upfront payment of by funding the escrow account. If the freelancing website offers an escrow account, e.g. Elance, my advice is not to start on any work if it has not been funded. If however, the website does not offer an escrow account, e.g. oDesk, insist on an upfront payment. If the employer says they do not offer upfront payment due to bad experiences in the past, then, look into their profile feedback. You may be able to draw your own conclusions by seeing what other freelancers have to say about that particular employer.  If there is no feedback, insist on an upfront payment. An upfront payment can be a percentage of the total project amount.

In my own opinion, a freelance website should ideally be free. However, some of these websites offer different membership plans with different charges according to the user’s preferences. These range from free accounts to premium accounts. Premium members tend to pay the most and also tend to have the best services offered by a particular website. An example of a website that is completely free is oDesk. It is free to join, bid on projects and accept contracts.  The only fee payable is a percentage of the project amount. Elance operates more or less the same except, it offers different membership plans and fixed prize projects have guarantee payment unlike oDesk. A site like freelancer charges the users on almost everything. There free account is actually the most expensive account. You get charged a fee for accepting to work on a project; this is just a rip off. What if the employer never gets to pay? Does that mean you will pay for a job you never got to do? This is why I personally found myself losing money instead of making it. What a shame. Perhaps I need to learn how to use the site and make profit instead of losses.

Tips for repairing cloth car upholstery

A car is one of the most costly things that most people acquire. Almost every family has at least one. After the purchase, one needs to take good care of it so that it can remain at optimum performance. Failure to do so may lead to engine malfunctions, the interior and exterior being worn out and spending more money than necessary in getting it back to its normal functionality. Taking care of the car’s interior is quite easy. Repairing the cloth car upholstery in particular is easy when you understand what to do.

First off, did you know that this part of the car can get stains? More so when you have children, this may be unavoidable. The best thing to do in this scenario is use cleaners available in the market. You could try out a few and settle on the one that works best for you. When picking them out, ensure you carefully read the instructions and follow them promptly while using them. This will help in avoiding further complications or damage to the upholstery.

It is better to clean out the stain immediately. The longer the stain stays on, the more it will seep into the cloth car upholstery and eventually become permanent. Foaming cleaners tend to work best for this task. You simply spray them over the stain and leave for a few minutes. They make the upholstery expand and then draw out the stain.

Holes and rips are another type of repair that needs to be dealt with immediately. When they are not dealt with in good time, they become bigger and worse. You could get a kit that has different kinds of cohesive, threads, pieces of patch up cloth with different colours and so forth. These are available in most car parts stores. You should sew up the rip or hole with a thick thread. If they rip or hole is too big or cannot be sewn up, you should patch it up with a patch of a matching colour to the car’s upholstery.

When worse comes to worse and you find that this piece of the car interior is damaged beyond repair, you will have to buy a new cloth to put on your car seats. This may be costly but if the entire piece is damaged, there is nothing else you can do. Hope you have some fun as you do the repairs and always remember, prevention is better than cure.
