Of all accessories, a wristwatch has to be the most practical. It’s convenient to wear, looks stylish, is available in many different designs and combines the best of both worlds really – good mechanics and accessorizing without looking geeky. It’s comes as no surprise then that watches have remained a favorite for both men and women. Even mobile phones and smartphones which can also serve as time-telling devices can’t replace the wrist or pocket watch – an accessory that has been around for centuries. Read more
I changed my phone recently and, in order to protect it from scratches from the start, I got ZAGG’s InvisibleSHIELD Full Body screen protector. The choice was based on my previous experience with the product, which makes me consider it the best screen or full body protection. I also wanted one because my phone model doesn’t feature any advertised built-in screen protection like Corning Gorilla Glass or scratch-proof layer, but I think that regardless of the smartphone, you need at least a good screen protection, because it never knows. You can find InvisibleSHIELD kits for about any handset, including Samsung Galaxy S4 or iPhone 5, and they are available in a few versions, such as just screen protection, full body protection (front and back) and maximum protection (front, back and sides).

We all struggle to find just the right gift sometimes. There’s a continuous challenge to find something that really fits the recipient’s personality or is uniquely suited to the occasion. And don’t forget that it’s always nice to outdo your mother.
There will be plenty of gift registries and heavily-dropped hints to satisfy certain events, like weddings, births, and housewarmings. But chances are, somewhere along the line, you’ll be looking for a unique personalized gift, and a frame will be the only thing to fit the bill.
Personalized items have come a long way since those paper-lined ones that we colored as kids, or the ceramic ones slopped with tempera before Mother’s Day.
In terms of a quality, professional piece that will be durable and remain attractive for years to come, your prospects are fantastic. There was a time not long ago when the best you could hope for was a generic “Niece” or “Our Wedding Day” frame from the local department store. If you were lucky, it would be halfway close to the recipient’s décor. Read more

Do you want look like a million dollars without it costing the earth? Believe it or not, it’s exceptionally easy to do your own blowout at home. You don’t need salon products for professional results.
Prepare Your Hair
Before you even plug-in your hairdryer, you should prepare your strands for heavy heat. Thermal protection can come in spray or oil forms, but you can also use multi-purpose mousses that create volume too. Don’t use too much product or your salon blowout will suffer. It may even make your tresses appear greasy.
Choose Your Style Weapons Wisely
It’s always worth investing in a high quality hairdryer with a fitted nozzle. This’ll control airflow and protect your hair from raw heat. Salon clips and a round brush are also important for the finished look.
Since I stopped writing by hand years ago, when I got my first computer, my handwriting got ugly and it’s just hard for me to control a writing tool. Recently I discovered a new passion, jewelry making, and while learning stone setting techniques and how to work with metals, different design ideas come up to me and since I’m not used with writing on paper anymore, I always forget the ideas. That’s why I discovered these erasable pens so late, while wandering in a shop, but now I’m a fan of these and want to share with you why. Read more
