4 Feng Shui Tricks to Bring Back Love in Your Relationship

0


No matter how much in love you were at the start of your relationship, it is only natural that with time, you get so involved in your daily routine that the love seems to evaporate. Sometimes, such disinterest is fueled by negative feelings, while at other times, it is just something that happens over time, without any specific reason.

Many studies have revealed that over time, people get bored of each other. The expectations from their partner increases, which, in most cases, leads to dissatisfaction, with the love fading and partners losing interest in each other. Seeing someone slowly lose interest in you is probably one of the worst feelings ever. You might even start wondering why you fell in love with the person in the first place.

However, this doesn’t mean the end of a relationship. This is just a temporary phase, which couples can combat with good communication and some simple Feng Shui tips. Feng Shui is an ancient science, developed over 3,000 years ago in China. According to this ancient science, our surroundings affect not just our level of material comfort but also our physical and mental health, and relationships. For instance, luxury bedding collections and embroidered bedding sets extend a positive vibe and relaxing ambiance in the bedroom, which only strengthens the romantic feelings between couples, says an expert at Guzel Dezayns.

4 Tips from Feng Shui that Can Rekindle Romance

  1. Take Out the Clutter: Since the ancient science of Feng Shui focuses on cleanliness and organisation, remove everything from your bedroom that could keep you from focusing on  Fill the empty spaces you are now left with by placing romantic objects like vases of flowers and candles. Avoid any sad and broken heart images in your bedroom. Instead spruce up the ambiance with some essential oils and fragrances.
  2. Create Enough Space: According to Feng Shui, the bedroom should be comfortable for the accommodation of two people. They should not feel like they are invading each other’s space. Make sure that the bed is not hiding behind the door or is squished in a corner of the room. The bed should have balanced Feng Shui energy on both sides, and should preferably be kept in the middle. This will also allow easy access to the partners on their individual sides, while making them feel respected and equal.
  3. Bedroom Should Have a Closet: Having a closet with enough space promotes breathing space in the room. The choice of closet should be such that both partners are able to store their items, without complaining about the lack of space and privacy.
  4. Include Mirrors and Crystals: Hanging mirrors diagonally, opposite each other in the hallway is highly recommended in homes where the bedroom lies at the end of a long hallway or corridor. This location is called the dragon’s mouth and is not considered favourable in the romance department. Moreover, inside the door, you can suspend a crystal sphere with a silver thread to strengthen your romantic relationship.

When choosing from luxury bedding collections, do take a look at the various options of beautiful bedding sets, designer duvet cover & cushion covers to create a beautiful atmosphere.

Can Tiger Woods beat Jack Nicklaus’ Major record?

0

Tiger Woods roared his way to a first Major victory in 1997 at The Masters, only a year after turning professional. During the 2000s, he was the dominant force in golf maintaining his number one ranking for much of that decade. However he took a step away from the golf course when news of his infidelity became public in 2009 and he didn’t play again until 2010. The airing of his dirty laundry in public took a toll on his golf and he fell down the world rankings, once dipping as low as 58 in November 2011.

However, this year sees Tiger back on form with a vengeance and he’s currently number one in the world and the favourite on sites like Betfair to win any of the four Majors this year. It seems that the bookmakers are in no doubt of Tiger’s ability to win a Major in 2014, the bigger question is whether he’ll one day be able to top Jack Nicklaus’ 18 Major record.

Nicklaus was 46 when he won his 18th Major, though it had been almost a decade since his last Major Win. Tiger is currently 38 and has not had a Major victory for six years now, so even if he won a Major this year, he’s running out of time to equal, let alone beat, Jack Nicklaus’ record. Although he’s not old by any means, it would take some doing for a golfer to win five more Majors while in his thirties, especially with a new generation of golfers coming up behind him and hungry for Major victories themselves. If you want to have a punt on the Masters this April, don’t back Tiger who’ll be itching to get the coveted green jacket on his shoulders again. Instead check out the players with the longer odds on Betfair and see where the value bets might be found.

Remember when we cared for if we lost the mobile because it meant losing our address book? The classic book is moving to the contact list of email and increasingly, we switched free international calls to free video call services such as Skype or Hangout of Google+ or apps like Viber and Line to allow us to talk with friends or coworkers without consuming a minute of our rate.

Calling applications

Skype

It is the most popular online service for video conferencing, it has over 300 million users worldwide. Besides video calling, it features an instant messaging service which allows sending files, recording calls and even calling mobiles or home phones. It is a free service but if we want to talk to several people at once or call a landline or a mobile we have to pay. We can also find Skype as an app on mobile and tablet for Android, iOS and Blackberry.

Google Hangout

We saw that it is one of the main elements of Google+. We can keep private or public conversations with up to 10 contacts at the same time for free. It also allows us to share files with contacts. Also it integrates seamlessly with Gmail and Youtube. You can start a Hangout from your iPhone or iPad or Android device.

Calling Apps

Viber | Line

Viber revolutionized the mobile phone market when we had to count the minutes we talked by phone to find no surprises on the bill; allowed to call for free to anyone with the app installed. It is also great that it let’s you know once someone from your contacts list starts using it. The only requirement: call in areas of good coverage as this is a wifi calling app for the iphone.

Line got to stand up to the almighty Whatsapp and added up to 140 million users worldwide. We can make voice calls and chat, while exchanging high quality photos, videos or funny emoticons. Besides calls and chat, Line also has a games section.

Unconventional Designer Pieces For Your Home

0

Home décor is an important means of us expressing our tastes, personalities and passions, furthermore, it is a wonderful way to make a house a home, those quirks, twists, and unusual pieces are what make us stand out from the rest. However, in a world where nearly every home store is selling the same look and style, it can be quite hard to stop yourself from becoming part of the herd. While we can try and buy the same items and use them in different ways, there are much simpler and more unique ways to transform your home. Unconventional designers and artists are thinking out of the box, and even using it, to create truly different pieces that really alter the dynamics of your home.

Re-using our old, forgotten objects and fabrics is fast becoming the best way to inject creativity into your home, take for example the textile scraps that have been fashioned into a contemporary fabric chair. The designer, Camilla Hounsell Halvorsen, a furniture and interior architect from Norway, has taken the unfashionable and made it fashionable, as well as providing a brilliant interior design platform for the general public to work from and experiment with.

Another exceptional yet unconventional way to decorate your home is to compliment your furniture with the right wall art and pictures. Albert Koetsier, an x-rayography artist featured on Photowall, has produced some intricately brilliant artwork that allows viewers to see traditional objects, such as flowers, in a whole new dimension and light. Koetsier’s x-ray flower designs are amongst some of his most popular works, and would suit many interiors no matter your preferred colour scheme.

Once you’ve managed to create the right ‘feel’ with furnishings and wall art, the right mood needs to be set in order to enhance your home. Light fittings can be the difference between finishing off a room, or simply making do. Baroncelli is home to various beautiful and weird designs that truly uplift and define a room. Textures and shapes are important for depth, and these unique light solutions offer up curvaceous, textured, hand-blown glass designs that illuminate your home.

Benefits of social networks on your business

0

With the explosive emergence of social networks today and the rapid expansion they are having (Facebook is prowling a whopping 700 million users and Twitter has reached 145 million users ), it is normal for companies to start being interested in participating in social networks. But as usual, many questions arise like “how do I start?”, “What do I need?” and “What strategy is best?”

The answers to these and other questions are not so simple and requires to have knowledge, time, patience and work, and above all perseverance and creativity. But let’s start knowing a little more of the social network’s importance and how a social media agency benefits your business.

Social media can help your business
Social media can help your business

First, you need to understand that social networks are so successful because they are based on one of the primary needs of human beings: communication. Indeed, social networking is the privilege with which people can communicate with others in different ways, at great distances and re-connect with people. Through social media we can know about what happens to our friends, acquaintances and family, maintain communication with people with whom we share interests. Furthermore, we can contact companies and find out about developments, new releases, ask questions about product campaigns, receive technical support, complain about a service and many other things.

The companies have not yet fully identified all the benefits of entering the social networks and those who have understood it have as a priority in their marketing activities. As mentioned, the benefits are many but we believe the next 6 are the most relevant ones.

Everyone uses social media and so should your business
Everyone uses social media and so should your business

1. Direct communication with customers

This is probably the most important factor  a company that wants to dabble in social media has to take into account. It is possible to hold a conversation on a daily basis with the people most important: your customers.

2. Customer Service

There is no better way to maintain a satisfied clientele than giving your customers the chance to be served and receive all the information and support about the products or services you offer.

3. Competition

It is a good way to know what your competition is doing, by reviewing its activities in social networks.

4. Loyalty

One of the characteristics of business involved in social networks is the gain of a loyal crowd. For example, on Facebook people are clicking the ” Like” button on pages or profiles as they are called, of those people or firms that seem to grab their attention with their products or service. It is like giving the company its “fans”.

5. Promotion of products

You can promote your products by uploading photos and videos. It is also useful to promote traffic to your website where you can specify the acquisition or procurement of products and services.

6. Market Research in real time

Like never before, you get to know many facts about your products or services and even get opinions on new projects or future releases, always in real time.

The New Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe Set to Make a Splash in New York

0

The New York Auto Show is scheduled to take place in April this year, and one of the undeniable stars of the show is expected to be the brand new Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4Matic Coupe. Details have recently been revealed ahead of this debut, to help build anticipation for what promises to be a super-fast and powerful new showing from Mercedes.

Engine Power and Speed

One of the top features of the new Mercedes S63 is its hand-built, twin-turbocharged 5.5-litre V-8 engine. This has an output of 577 horsepower, and is equipped with an AMG Speedshift 7-speed transmission. Drivers can also expect to have access to the all-wheel drive hardware that is also standard on other recent Mercedes vehicles. Take a look at these examples at Carsales for other vehicles featuring the 4Matic all-wheel-drive hardware to see how it stands up to the competition. The new S63 AMG Coupe will weigh in at about 4,400 pounds, yet it will be able to hit top speeds of 186 mph and accelerate from zero to 60 mph in only 3.9 seconds. Although there are lighter cars on the road, the new S63 AMG 4matic Coupe uses technology to help trim the fat. This includes carbon-ceramic brakes, light-alloy AMG wheels, and an aluminium body for a more aerodynamic end product. It will also have a lighter battery and composite brakes.

Further Features

Anticipation is running high for the new S63 AMG Coupe, due to its exclusivity and sophisticated ride quality. It’s expected to be one of Mercedes’ most exclusive products once it goes into production, to help fill the shoes of the popular SLS AMG Coupe. Pricing has not yet been announced, but it’s expected to be in the six figure range or comparable to the current C63 AMG Coupe. Further features that help this luxury car stand out include an AMG sports exhaust providing three different modes and levels of noise. One of the coolest new features will be its Magic Body Control and curve tilting, which allows the car to lean into corners like motorcycles do. It should be good fun to take out for a spin on winding roads at top speeds with features like that.

Interior luxury features will include a three-spoke steering wheel, aluminium shift paddles, leather seating, and high-resolution display. The dashboard will be equipped with a new touchpad, which is used to control the sat-nav, phone system, and radio. Its exterior features are also distinctive. The new AMG Coupe will get a twin-blade radiator grille in a sleek shade of silver chrome, along with a glossy black diffuser and multiple exhaust pipes. It’s designed to stand out on the road as an exclusive luxury vehicle that will be able to hit top speeds on a regular basis.

With features like these, it’s no doubt that when the new Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe finally makes it New York debut, it will be certain to stand out from the crowd. Due to its speed and price point, it could become strong competition for crowd favourites like the Bentley Continental and Aston Martin Rapide.

Commuters getting hot and bothered by taking the train

0

Little or no personal space, too hot or cold and having to stand for large periods of time – if you regularly use the train to commute into work, then chances are you’ll be more than familiar with these experiences.

If you can relate to having to race for the last seat on the train, or having to grab hold of a complete stranger in an attempt to stay upright when it stops suddenly, then you’ve also probably found yourself asking at some point why you put yourself through it?

A recent infographic by Buzz Conferencing revealed that some rail services are up to 60 per cent over capacity – making for an uncomfortable ride and raising the question once again as to what can be done to make things a little bit more bearable.

Take the London Underground for example – approximately 3.5 million people use the tube every day, which is the equivalent to around half of the capital’s population. It’s no surprise that one in five have to spend their journey standing up, even though they’ve paid for a seat.

While Transport for London does plan to introduce air conditioning for the underground by 2016, this doesn’t help those who use the service over the next two years and only adds to that feeling of discomfort.

The problem is further impacted by the fact that last summer, some train speeds were reduced to just 32 km per hour during the heatwave. In comparison, the usual average pace is between 85 and 125 km per hour – resulting in long delays in hot carriages.
