I was not happy with the company that was providing me with Internet service. Their prices were going up every one to two years, but I was not getting any better service or even more perks to it. I know some people have very little choice in the companies that provide their Internet service, but thankfully I was not in an area where I was limited to just one choice. I looked at everything available to me, and I made the switch to ATT Internet within days of deciding I was not going to keep paying more for my Internet.
I just wanted to make sure that the service I was signing up with was going to be equivalent or better than the one I was leaving. I do a lot of streaming on my Internet connection because I don’t have a TV. Continue reading
When you find yourself researching online for a new apartment, what sort of qualities do you look for? I have to ask myself what I’m hoping for from the apartment and what reasons I have for needing one right then. Am I looking for a place to stay only for a brief period of time? Am I going to be moving out of the state soon? Am I renting it to be closer to work, school or family? The reason I rented from the Oaks of Vernon Hills was simply because I needed to be much closer to work for a period of time while we overhauled our data centers.
It’s frustrating when you find yourself strictly limited to your apartment choices thanks to a shortage of income. I was there right out of college and found that I was only able to afford one of the most grim places in a rather terrible neighborhood. It was an experience that I’ll not shake any time soon and has been the inspiration for my thoroughness when looking for a new place. Continue reading
I am going to try to move to a house soon. I hope that I can find a house and that I do not have to settle for moving into an apartment at this point in time. I really hate the idea of renting an apartment because it feels like it is wasted money in a certain sort of way. Of course, you get something in return for the money you spend, but it is not something you get to take with you. Anyway, I am checking into info about texas energy because if I am going to try to find a house to buy in Texas, then I want to know everything possible about buying a house in this state, and that includes the electricity prices and all of the electricity companies that are in the state.
The latter of those two categories turns out to take a bit more research than I had anticipated. That is because, apparently, there is a law for energy deregulation in the state of Texas, which means that there are a lot of different companies that you can pick from to buy your electricity from in any one location. That makes it a lot easier to make sure you are getting the best rate on electricity. Or at least, it seems like in theory it should make that the case. We will have to wait and see how it works out in reality. I am not sure, but I am going to hope to figure out as much as I can today, because it is one of the few days that I actually don’t have to work and so I am going to try to make the most of it. I will see what I can get done in the next couple of hours.
My wife and I have been on a quest to modernize our home. The home was build nearly 60 years ago, and it has gone through many owners. My wife watches a lot of show about remodeling, and she got caught up in the smart home craze. She wants to have everything connected to her smartphone. We started by installing a new thermostat that can be controlled with an app. My wife likes the house to be cold when she comes home. We also had a new security system installed from home-security.io. The system can be armed while we aren’t at home, and it can send an alert either by email or to our phones when it detects any trouble.
Sometimes my wife forgets to put the garage door down after she leaves home, so I installed a monitor that connects to our home network. Continue reading
Pregnancy can really mess with how you feel about yourself. One minute you are so happy that there is a new life growing inside of you. Then another minute you feel that you look so odd that your husband must feel the same way. That is never ever true. A pregnant woman is very attractive to her husband. However, I kept forgetting that when I saw myself in the mirror in the morning. My body looked so different so quickly that it was just hard to get used to in such a short period of time. Maternity lingerie is what actually boosted my moral.
Of all people it was my husband who found it for me. He heard me remark about how my bras and other undergarments were not fitting me as the pregnancy progressed, and that I did not want to get what us girls refer to as the “granny panties.” I wanted to have stylish lingerie during my pregnancy. Continue reading
It is sort of like the championship match. The last one. The deciding one that tells the world who is the best of all the teams. I am a dad, and I am comparing it to our daughter’s wedding. Hey, I have to use examples I am familiar with. Dad’s are like that. I knew it was her big day. She was going to have one of them, and it had to be perfect. This guy is the love of her life, and I knew this was for keeps. This is why we hired a bridal makeup artist in London for the big day.
We left nothing to chance. Even as a dad I knew that hair, makeup, clothes and shoes had to be perfect for the big event. Our daughter is absolutely beautiful without any makeup. You could dress her in farmer’s overalls and she is as pretty as her mother. And I am not the only one to say that. Continue reading
I pay close attention to the latest fashions and what models are doing on the runway and in the streets. I like to stay on top of the latest trends and do what I can to model my look after those of the women that are known for being beautiful and fashionable. I have been using this hairdresser in Bristol to do my hair for the last year and a half and have had nothing but great experiences with her. She takes so much time to make sure that she cuts every hair just right and that it lies on my head perfectly.
I have had some pretty bad hairdressers work on my hair in years past and I have learned that once you find one that you like, you do what you have to do to keep her. I have gone through several different looks with this lady and she never ceases to amaze me with her natural god given talent.
I have a couple of girlfriends that wanted to know where I go to get my hair done and I told them that she does not except new clients because it is already hard enough to find a timeslot that she can fit me into. I knew that if I had told them where I go that they would go to and then their friends would ask them where they go and they would tell them. It would mean that I would have a much more difficult time getting an appointment with the one beautician in town that I trust with my hair.
I feel a little bad that they cannot go where I go, but I do not feel bad enough to tell them my little secret. My beautician does not need the added business because she is booked solid each and every day that the shop is open.
When I first started dating my husband, we both agreed that the term ‘opposites attract’ definitely fit the two of us. I loved country music while he was into raves. I enjoyed vacationing at the beach while he wanted to go to the mountains. I am a vegetarian, and he needs meat at every meal, including snacks! Somehow though, we clicked, and we have been together for nearly 10 years now. We have learned to appreciate each other’s passions too, which is why I found myself looking for rave clothing a few years ago.
I had gone to some with him, and I actually liked the music a good bit. What enthralled me even more though was the other people who were there too. I saw that this was as much about unique fashions as it was about the music. Continue reading
My daughter told me she wanted me to get her some more rainbow loom bands, but I was not able to find them anywhere I looked. They seemed to be a really popular item with the kids, since all of them are making the loom bracelets. I have even seen boys making and wearing the bracelets, so I knew how important it was for my daughter to find the Yishun Rainbow Loom in Singapore. I did a search online, and I was able to find it online at a really great store.
I had never been to ilovesales before, but I knew that I would be a regular after seeing everything that they have. Continue reading
I have been out in the Far East looking for new inventory. Of course you are always looking for that something which is eye dropping, the great product at a great price. You want to find the sweet spot where you can sell something at a good price, a price people will pay and a price where you make a profit. What I am finding is the usual beads and rainbow loom in Singapore and all sorts of knock off goods from China. The people who are selling that stuff from China feel as though they are safe from the intellectual property police, but I am not interested in that sort of business. It is not a good deal if you have to worry about getting caught. Obviously you could get away with it for a long time, but then you get caught and if you do not get put in jail they ruin your life.
Looking good is more than just the clothes that you wear. You have got to have a good hairdresser bristol if you are going to look your absolute best. Sure, the clothes that you wear will tell the world that sees you a bit about who you are, but if your hair does not look good, you will not look good.
My friend and I went to this new hairstylist about a month ago and we love what she did with our hair. I have always had pin straight hair that I did nothing with. Somehow, she was able to take my straight hair and make it look like the hair of a supermodel.
I sat down with a friend of mine today and went through some things he was thinking about. He knows a lady who is working for an optometrist, or she is a person who gives you eyeglasses after you go to the eye doctor. She was trying to talk him into helping her with a site where you can buy womens eyeglasses online. Of course the concept is quite simple, because there is a rather large mark up on many of these designer glasses. You have a lot of places where they seem to pay one price for the frames and then they turn around and double that when they sell them to you.
With the beginning of school just around the corner, I have to make my annual trek to the stores to pick up clothes for my kids. It is remarkable how much has changed in the last couple of years when it comes to this annual tradition.
When my son started school five years ago, you could not get him to sit still long enough to go into a store to shop for clothes. If he did go with you, he was always so wired that it was virtually impossible to find anything. My daughter was much more patient at first, but she was too hard to please. It was a shopping experience that I always dreaded.
However, in the last two or three years, something started to change. As they got a bit older, they started to take more interest in what they were wearing to school. Of course, a lot of this change is due to peer pressure, as kids want to dress a certain way in order to fit in. Continue reading
Mike is not that excited about his first day at the headstart program, but I am all over the place getting ready for it. It is pretty melancholy for me. On the one hand I will be happy to get back to work after the past four and a half years, but I am going to miss being with my baby boy. I am going to have to live without my daily dose of Dora the Explorer and Diego too. I hardly know how to talk to adults it seems. We definitely need a second income though and I am going to be able to work a flexible schedule that will allow me to pick him up in the afternoon.
Mike went with me to pick out the clothes for his first day in school. I had already done a lot of research on the internet, looking to get some things which would be good for a child his age without being too expensive. The child outgrows shoes every time you turn around and some times he leaves his shoes in places where you never think that you shall find them. So I did not want to spend a ton of money getting Mike the nicest things in the world when I knew that he would not be able to wear them in a mere couple of months. I am really hoping that all of the clothes that his aunts and I bought him will last the entire time he is in headstart, but that does not seem very likely. I did buy everything a bit bigger than it needed to be. He has to wear a belt and roll up the bottom of his tiny jeans. I think that they shall probably last for a good five months if I am lucky.
