Glamorous and Profitable Careers

June 9th, 2014

If you want to purchase glamorous items like many of those we talk about on this blog, you are going to need some cold, hard cash. And for most of us, that means working a real job. Or even better: a career!

I’ve been thinking about my career options for the future a lot lately, and have come to the conclusion that you can learn to love a job that pays well as easily as you can love a job that doesn’t pay much at all. So what jobs pay well? Well I recently found this website: http://profitablecareers.com that has a lot of great posts about some of the best paying jobs available. The U.S. Department of Labor also publishes a lot of articles about the best paying jobs, with loads of statistics, but I find it is a little difficult to understand the information and like the articles published on that website better.

So, what kind of job should a person who is interested in fashion go after? Well, one of the jobs that I thought sounded interesting was in drafting. They earn around $25 an hour and you don’t have to even go to college for it. Learn more here:

http://profitablecareers.com/blog/best-paying-careers-that-dont-require-a-college-degree/

As you will see, there are lots of jobs that don’t require a college degree and still pay well. Many of them require some kind of training, but that can vary from short on the job training to longer apprenticeships. So you don’t necessarily have to incur large amounts of college debt to find a good job. I hope you find this information helpful!

 

We Love Cats

January 13th, 2014

We love cats, and found a great site with loads of cute cat toys and accessories: We Heart Cats!

Recently I was looking for a very specific cat bed for my aging cat. I wanted a cat heating pad to help him when it gets cold inside. My poor old kitty cat suffers from arthritis and during the winter months he can hardly get out of bed if his joints are too stiff.

I found that using a heating pad made specifically for cats really helps him during the winter. And I found a really reasonably priced one at WeHeartCats.com. So if you are looking for some glamorous (or not so glamorous) toys or accessories for your kitty, we highly recommend you check it out!

Name Question: What do you believe of Katerina Sofia as a name for a little girl?

July 25th, 2013

We are expecting a little girl in August and have not made a decision on how to spell her middle identify however.

It signifies wisdom in Greek. Katerina is definite but we do not know how we want to spell Sofia or Sophia.

Here are some Solutions Found Online:

Love it, it’s actually adorable. I adore the spelling Sofia, and it would seem to fit the very first identify nicely.

sofiabookVery first of all, congratulations! Personally, I prefer Katarina to Katerina. It appears like it’d be cater-eena. I also prefer Sophia to Sofia (although Sofia is gaining in popularity thanks to Disney, see this page for example: http://www.squidoo.com/sofia-the-first-birthday-party-supplies-and-ideas, but either way it still sounds completely gorgeous! Whichever way you make a decision to spell it will be fine.

Fashion Jewellery – The First Love of Every Woman

June 22nd, 2013

Fashion being an ever changing concept has led to many changes in the trends of fashion jewellery as well. Fashion is an excellent mode to enhance the appearance of the wearer and to express the personality of the people, therefore a sense of fashion and style is what matters the most, while purchasing any sort of fashion jewellery. For example, dragonfly jewelry can help express a certain individual taste or preference.

Fashion jewellery has always been a joy to wear for both men and women. Women of every age love to wear fashion jewelleries at different occasions of life. These fashion jewelleries help in beautifying the charm and appearance of the women in a more drastic way. Besides, fashion jewelleries are also an excellent mode to express your sense of style. These fashion jewelleries can provide a glamorous look, even to a simple outfit. Since, fashion keeps on changing day by day, therefore the use of fashion jewellery also needs to be changed at the same pace. Be it a necklace, bangle, ankle bracelet, earrings, toe rings or any other jewellery item, all you need to have is excellent fashion sense to create that bold fashion statement.

There is a wide range of fashion jewellery available in the market. The major difference in all of them lies in the type of material being used to design and develop them. When we go to the markets, we come across an endless variety of fashion jewelleries. But selecting the best among them is the most important factor. Among the endless range the few can be listed as metallic jewelleries, which are available in a variety of options like silver plated, gold plated, or some with trendy imprints of graphics, text or symbols on them. These are highly demanded by the youngsters and women of different age groups. Besides, some of the fashion jewellery made of different types of materials like feather, paper, and plastic are also very common these days. These are available in innovative patterns, designs and colours that can teamed up with different sorts of outfits for various occasions. Another very common type of fashion jewellery is the colourful jewelleries that are generally preferred by girls. These are mainly worn in a contrast match with the dress for a different and funky look to your appearance.

Apart from these some of the commonly found fashion jewelleries in the market are stone studded jewellery, gold jewellery, silver jewellery and diamond jewellery. All these are some of the oldest forms of jewellery that will always remain in fashion. The main thing that matters in these jewelleries is the design, pattern and material being used. The combination of different types of materials used in fashion jewellery is that one factor which can change the entire look of the jewellery in a more innovative manner. Although there are an endless range of fashionable jewelleries available in the market but selecting the best among them is what describes the fashion sense and the personality of a person in the best possible way.

So if you are looking for an excellent range of fashion jewellery in the market, you may come across a wide array of the same. These may be available at every fashion accessory store but the piece of jewellery that you may choose can go beyond your budget. So to buy the best fashion jewellery for yourself you can buy them from any wholesale shop.

Fun and Glamourous Kids Toys

April 22nd, 2013

My niece is turning three, and I’ve been looking for quality kids toys to give this cute, soon to be glamorous, tot. Here are some of my to choices:

1) A Radio Flyer Bouncing Horse. I had one of these as a  child, and I loved it. I think she would really enjoy it, and it is certainly a “10” on the cuteness scales!

2) Izzy Pirate Accessories. My niece is also a huge fan of the Jake and the Neverland Pirates kids TV show on the Disney channel. She often dresses up and pretends to be Izzy, the cute girl pirate on the show. There are loads of great suggestions of cool Jake toys here: http://www.squidoo.com/jake-and-the-neverland-pirates-toys-and-games

radioflyer3) A child size wheelbarrow. I also know she loves to garden with her mom, and these seem like extremely cute and easy to use tools for children to have. I know her mom wouldn’t buy her one, so maybe I’ll splurge and pick up this cute kids wheelbarrow for her instead!

How about you? Which is your favorite?

Getting Ready for Glamour Camping Trip

March 13th, 2013

bigtentMe and my girlfriends are planning on a glamping trip soon (a glamour camping trip) and I’m looking at some possible tents for us to use. We really want a big tent, and I found a few here: largest family camping tents. But some of my friends want to go hiking, and want the ease of an ultralight weight tent instead. They are looking at this site here: http://www.squidoo.com/best-lightweight-backpacking-tents.

What do you prefer? Large, comfy tents are light to carry smaller tents? We have quite a debate going on and I’m not sure what we will end up with… however, I am sure we will have a great trip regardless!

Be Healthy and Happy In The New Year!

December 29th, 2012

New Years resolutions are upon us, and I’ve been setting some of my own and reading up on things not necessarily related to fashion.

One major change I’ve been considering is trying out a raw food diet starting January 1st. There are so many people I know who claim that raw foods has given them a substantial boost in energy and helped clear up their skin, make their hair super healthy and more.

However, I haven’t the slightest clue where to start. I did find this useful page discussing many of the raw food books that are available and the basics of learning how to eat raw foods. It seems the biggest challenge for me is going to find easy to prepare and delicious recipes. Many raw food recipes I’ve come across seem to be quite labor intensive or take a long time (hours to soak seeds and such).

Anyway, I’ll be starting eating a mostly (80%) raw food diet come January 1st. Wish me luck! :)
