Hire a Professional? Me? You Bet I Did!

When I started my online business, I knew I would have to have a Web site that was attractive, functional and easily navigable. Having done some Web development work in the past, I put on my Web developer hat and rolled up my sleeves. I opened the “e- doors” within a week of completing my site. After ten very long months, I had a trickle of traffic and sales to match. I redesigned my site and sent out e-mail pamphlets without much success. On the advice of a seasoned Web-sales friend, I found and hired a cheap seo company. The change has been phenomenal. I now rank on the first page in every currently popular browser online, and my sales have tripled. If this growth continues, I will be hiring help for my business very soon. I strongly advise others having similar problems to learn from my experience. Hire a professional!

Upcycled Cake Stand

Today I’m going to tell you how I made a gorgeous upcycled cake stand using only a teacup, a plate and ceramic transfers.

First, select a teacup that you really like. I found a really pretty vintage one with a Christmas design because I want to use my cake stand for Christmas parties. You’ll also need a large plate in a complementary or matching design. I chose a plain green plate to go with my teacup.

Next, make sure that your china pieces are clean and dry. Then use a quality china or glass adhesive to secure the bottom of the plate to the bottom of the teacup, making sure to line the centers up as closely as you can.

Once your cake stand has dried, you can then use the transfers to add more decoration to the teacup or plate. I chose some cardinal birds to add more red to my plain green plate and finish off my cake stand with a bright, cheery motif.

My Best Friend, the Serial Dater

One of my best friends has an addiction, and his friends and family are not sure how to help him out. He seems to be addicted to online dating, but the real problem is none of his relationships have lasted long then a month, except for one. You see, in high school he was in a relationship for almost a year. Then, the natural occurrence of graduation came upon us and their relationship ended.

In the 3 years since we graduated has has been in over a dozen relationships. It appears that he is looking for the right girl, and that he quickly decides that the person is wrong for him. However, he could figure that out before considering them to be a couple. The way I see it is that he gets bored easily, because he does not want to put in the time and work he put into that long term relationship in high school. He views it as a bad memory of wasted time, and it continues to impact his relationships today.

Pesky Weeds

My house sits on lakefront property, and it is imperative for me to keep my yard looking nice. It’s a busy lake, and neighbors and visitors are always driving by on their boats. I spray the yard for weeds every year but this year the weeds kept coming up by my deck and dock area. I’ve tried a couple of different products, and they did not seem to work.

I decided that I was going to lay pea gravel down, and it’s the best thing that I could have ever done. Before I laid the gravel, I made sure that I had plenty of ground cover to prevent the weeds from coming back. Now that part of my yard is maintenance free, not to mention that I have received many compliments how great it looks. Next summer, I think I am going to add some up in front of my house under the tree.

Prevent Female Heart Attack

It’s not about fitting into a new bikini or a new pair of skinny jeans, but it’s about being healthy and preventing a weight-related heart attack. Losing a few pounds will lower my risk of having a heart attack (plus a host of other obese-related diseases), an often fatal condition that is on the rise among females. Losing weight is not easy, but thai massage Manchester provides a clear plan that includes support from people who have walked in my (overrun) shoes and who are willing to help me achieve my health goals. A plan of action that provides quick results and the motivation to keep me going until I reach my goal, plus after care support to keep me on track for healthy living. That’s a win-win program for me.

Saying Goodbye To My Home

My husband recently got a new job in a new city. As a result of this, we will have to pack up our belongings and move across the country. We will also have to sell the home that we have lived in for more than 15 years. We are very excited to have this new fresh start at life, but this process has been very stressful.

We have been fixing up our home in order to increase its chances of being sold. We have updated the appliances in the kitchen and the bathroom. We have also purchased porous paving materials because we are planning on re-doing the pavement. On top of everything else, we have started packing up. I never knew that saying goodbye to my home would be so stressful and difficult. I cannot wait until all of this is over.

Beautiful is Back

Looking good has never been as important as feeing good about yourself, but looking good always helps you feel good. Most everyone has that special day that they need to look their best, whether it is for a job interview, to catch the eye of that special someone, or the most important of all, the wedding day. Having a great wedding makeup artist Manchester for that day is something all of us want to have at our disposal for those special occasions. But it is important that person knows our likes and dislikes plus our style to get that perfect look. I love makeup, but I don’t want to go out looking like I’m ready for a theater performance, or that I’m ready for a day a the beach, so choosing the right person to be my artist is crucial. Personalities must blend between the client and the artist so each feels comfortable with what style is to be desired.
