5 Tips For Perfect Selfies

5 Selfie Tips

Selfies are a way of life for a widening number of people online. They post their selfies to social media sites for fans, friends, and even complete strangers to view. However, some of the selfies lack that incredible shot that would get them favored by more fans. A selfie is not suppose to look posed or fake. It should appear completely natural and flattering. Most of the pictures are not taken with a professional camera. Instead, they are taken with smartphone or digital camera and instantly posted to social media sites. Here are a few tips for all the selfie fans that would like to take amazing pictures.

Strike A Pose – In other words, take a look in the mirror before actually taking that first picture. Groom appropriately for the picture. Make sure that your hair is groomed, makeup is flawless, teeth are bright, fresh, and natural.

Show Your Best Angle – This is an old trick that is still fresh. Just about everyone has a good angle to their face and their body. Angle your face to the good side and always hold the camera slightly above your head. Force your chin out and do not look directly in the camera. Look toward a point near the camera lens. Keep practicing until you find the perfect angle.

Go Natural – Forget about using a flash. Instead, use natural lighting through a window to avoid shadows or lighting that does not flatter your face.

Filters – Apply filters to soften the angels of your face and look more pleasant to the camera.

Look Natural – Don’t strike a silly pose or look angry. Instead let a casual smile radiate from your face. This will give you a natural look.

Keep Your Children Protected as You Move to a New House

Kids don’t easily adjust to a different environment. Not only is it difficult for them on an emotional level, they also have to make physical adjustments. This is why it is important to consider your kids’ health and security before moving to a new house.

Clean the entire place

Whether you are moving to a new house or you are renting an old place, it has to be sanitized. There could be potential health risks that must be removed. Find someone to help you clean the place. In some instances, there might be a need for fumigation just to keep bugs and other insects out. By the time you move, your kids won’t face health risks anymore.

Make sure the neighbourhood is safe

Don’t buy a house located in a dangerous neighbourhood no matter how cheap it is. You should also avoid living in a place where there are not enough security measures in place. It helps that you show your kids around the place first and see if they are comfortable. Introduce them to the new neighbours and make them feel like they are welcome.

Teach them how to use the facilities

For younger kids, teach them what to do if there is a lift going to the apartment. They should also learn how to use the stairs if possible. For older kids, teach them how to use the digital door lock. This makes it easier for them to remain safe even if you are not physically present to check on them. They will also avoid locking themselves out and being at risk.

Let them understand the differences

Make sure that they know exactly what makes the new place different from the old place. For instance, you might be moving to a rural area. The lifestyle will be more laidback. They might also have to be less noisy than they used to be. It also helps that you tell them about the reason why you are moving and what changes there will be in your lifestyle. Don’t belittle kids’ grasp of what is going on. Let them understand everything and tell them the truth.

Once you think your kids are prepared to move and everything is set, you can start packing. Seek help from experts in removals Gloucester offers to make the job a lot easier. With assistance from a moving company, you have nothing else to do but to just supervise the process. They will take care of all the details from the start until the finish.

Moving can be stressful, especially if you have kids. Just make them understand the situation instead of hiding the truth from them.

Interesting Sites to Visit

There are many interesting sites to visit on the Web and this time I would like to write about some of them. Very often when I sit in front of my computer I get the urge to do something fun. Since my computer has Internet access, I know that there are many websites worth visiting. Here are a few types of sites that I would recommend to people to visit:

-Social networking sites. How fun it is to visit such site depends on how many friends you have on such sites. Do not worry if you are just starting out, as even if you do not have many friends yet, then you might have a chance to meet many interesting people there.
-I would also recommend visiting sites that feature casual games. Some of them are online games that allow you to play against human opponents. Do you have problems finding a partner to play checkers with? No problem, as on these sites there will be dozens of people willing to play.
-Personally, I enjoy visiting sites where users can upload their own videos. It is fun to watch what people upload, especially if you know what you are interested in. There are millions of video clips already uploaded by people so there is a big choice.

Your Essential Guide to Packing Plates, Lamps, and other Fragile Items

Moving from one place to another is often a hectic experience, simply because there seems to be so much to do in such little time, and because you’re never quite sure what problems might come along. For these reasons, it’s important to start early – as early as you can – and have a good organisation in place. But is that enough? Well, no. It’s a good start, but there are certain things you have to keep in mind, especially when it comes to packing items of a fragile nature. There are three risk factors: the packing, moving, and unpacking – and when it comes to fragile or breakable items, you need to take some extra precautions. It’s best to work with experienced movers like Mayflower to make sure everything goes smoothly. Here is your essential guide to packing plates, lamps, and other fragile items:

Start with the basics

These are just simple rules, but by applying them, you are sure to save yourself a lot of trouble. Furthermore, you can avoid a lot of damage. The basics are:

  • If you think you have enough packing supplies, you’re probably wrong. Stack up on them, and buy them well in advance.
  • 15 kilos per box is more than enough. Don’t overdo it.
  • Always fill empty spaces with rags, crumpled up paper, or bubble wrap – this will prevent the items from moving around.
  • Place the heaviest items at the bottom to keep an easy-to-handle centre of gravity during lifting, carrying, and transporting.

How to handle plates

Plates can be stacked together but they need to have a protective layer separating them. Put the biggest plate at the bottom, and alternatively add a new layer of protective coating (bubble wrap) and another plate. Once the stack is complete, tape the plates together to prevent them from moving around.

How to handle lamps

You’ll want to fortify the bottom, so use plenty of tape (and don’t be shy, either). Disassemble the lamp and wrap each part in bubble wrap. Make sure the box is completely filled with cushioning materials to prevent the lamp parts from moving around, as confirmed by removals Stroud professionals from Advanced Removals & Storage.

Actually, it’s all about physics – but of course, that’s a useless statement when it comes to the items you have such an attachment to. A more productive statement of advice would be: you can’t go wrong with some extra padding, and if you value your items, then your precautions are sure to pay off in the end.

By the way – one more extra tip: fill your boxes so there are no empty spaces. You don’t want to over-load the boxes and make them too heavy, but you want to have no empty spaces to avoid items moving around during the move. Crumpled up paper, old socks, and bubble wrap often go a long way. Happy moving!

Home-based Business Ideas

I am sure that many of my readers are interested in home-based business ideas. Since that is the case, I decided to list a few of them in this article. I hope that this list will help my readers start their own businesses in the future:

-Web design. You will need to have some skills in order to do that. There is a lot of competition out there, but there is also a need for skilled Web designers. After all, the way a website looks like is important to visitors.

-Traveling hairdressing and beauty needs. You will basically need to visit other people’s homes. This is a good idea if you think that you got talent and passion for hairdressing. You should also generally be a people’s person.

-Data entry. This involves sitting in front of a computer and typing a lot. Fast typing skills are a must for this kind of job. You should be able to type a lot without getting tires quickly.

-Meal delivery service. If you love to cook, then perhaps you should consider a meal delivery service. You will also need someone who will be willing to deliver the food you are going to cook.

What are the 6 best things for being close to your dad?

A dad would always remain a son’s first hero and a daughter’s first love. Many of us are very close to our dads and spending time with them, puts us in a relaxing phase. We all have a different equation with our mom and dad but we all would believe that dads are cooler. Here are a few things that we all usually experience when our dads are the best buddies.

–          You may be in your worst at around 3 A.M. and you would still find your dad ready to save you. You can call him at that odd hour because you know there is no genius like him. You know, you cannot do everything based on your smartphone! And when you are in your real world, you always curl up to him. On father’s day or on his birthday, don’t therefore forget a nice fathers day cake with a greeting card.

–          We all face some kind of challenge or obstacle in our workplace day in and day out. Your boss may be very demanding or sometimes inhuman. Now, this is the moment when your best buddy dad crawls in and gives you valuable feedback of the situation. He is the best coach and that’s why you love returning to him. Without getting pissed off, he would listen to you carefully and then calm you down.

–          The earlier point reminds me that a child with dad as a best buddy would never ever be freaked out in any strata of his/her life. Because all those maddening moments when you are not happy, people have crushed you down, or your expectations are not met, – these are wonderfully taken care by your dad. For these moments, one thank you won’t be enough – right? Get a father’s day gift card and wish him sweetly.

–          What is the sweetest part of your union with your dad? You would never get a better fan than your dad. He is always encouraging towards you. He will always cheer for you in a big way. Your achievements would never be ignored with a small cupcake for father’s day but celebrated with a gala dinner. It can be as small as you becoming “Employee of the month” or as big as your finally finding the right partner. He is always there to cheer for your triumphs.

–          Right from childhood, he has been your savior – right? There are moments when things get heated up in your home. One thing or word leads to another. In these emergency situations, your dad comes again and calms everyone down. He is the best kind of referee you would ever find in your family.

–          He is not someone who would lie around saying nice words about your friends or lovers, in case they are not. He is always concerned about the company you keep. He doesn’t want you to go through a heart break and that’s why he would be up on your face if you are in a wrong group of friends and admirers.

More Debt, More Income

The more debt you have, the higher income you should have at the same time. You should never allow situations that you borrow more money than you can afford to pay back. If your debt is getting out of control and is higher that your income, it is a sign that you need to start looking for a new source of income. It might be ok for a short while to be in debt provided that you do everything to find an extra source of income to pay off your debt. Being in debt and not doing anything about it is not a responsible thing to do.

Create Stunning Effects with Landscape Lighting

Professional landscapers know how to create stunning effects and unique ambiance with outdoor lighting. With a little knowledge about landscape lighting techniques and help from general contractors, you can create a magical landscape for your home.

Landscape lighting fixtures come in a wide variety of styles and finishes, so it’s easy to find fixtures that will enhance the beauty of your home and landscape. You can find halogen, LED, solar, and underwater fixtures that are easy to install and reasonably priced to fit any size budget.


Up-lighting fixtures are used to highlight trees and shrubs from the ground up. By locating one or two fixtures at the base of the tree and aiming the light upwards, you will accent the main structure trees and shrubs. To highlight tree canopies and shrub foliage, move fixtures about 8 to 10 feet back for a broader light beam, then aim the light higher up.


Down-lights are often placed in trees and under the eaves of the house or roof line to give soft light from above. They can be used in the landscape to highlight special outdoor features like pools and spas, arbors and garden beds. When installed under the eaves, they can highlight doors and windows, patios, architectural design elements.


To highlight interesting architectural materials and textures on the house, fences and retaining walls, place up-lights about six inches away from the structure with light beams directed upwards. The light will accent interesting materials like wood, brick, slate and flagstone and cast soft shadows that add visual interest to the landscape.


Moonlighting creates a visual effect that resembles natural moonlight filtering through the trees. To create this effect, place down-lights high-up in trees and aim the light downward toward the ground. As the light filters through tree leaves and branches, it will cast interesting shadows on landscape areas below. To create multiple shadows and textures, place several lighting fixtures high-up in tree branches and cross the light paths as they go downward.


Up-lights and wall washers are used to cast shadows on certain features. You can wash a tree or outdoor fountain with light, so it casts a shadow on a nearby fence or retaining wall. The play of light and darkness creates an intriguing visual effect, especially if the object is moving in the breeze. For a more dramatic effect, place the fixture low to the ground and angle the light fixture upward.
