There are many things going on in the world and it is very hard to follow technology today since it is developing very fast. Here is a list of trends we can expect in this year:

1. More and more ads. There number of advertisements is expected to increase. It is the best way to sell your product or service. Of course this is about internet ads and not the ones we see off-internet.

2. 4K content. 4K HDTV offer screen resolution approximately four times better than your standard 1080p and what is surprising is that their price is not that expensive! This will be one of the best things that happened to the TV industry ever, even better than the 3D. People will sell their TVs and replace them with new 4K HDTV. Well, of course those who could afford to do so.

3. Smart home technology. Nest and Lockitron are companies that include technology in our homes. It is expected that many other companies will follow them which will lead into an “explosion” of smart home technology.

goodonlineshoppingsites.net

Online shopping is becoming more and more popular in the US, this is according to a goodonlineshoppingsites.net infographic. Apparently the best shopping deals can be found online, this is according to an estimated 80% of American shoppers. Different methods are used by shoppers, as evidenced by National Retail Federation’s survey that 5-7% of adult Americans use their mobile phone to differentiate prices while shopping. Shopping on tablets is also on the rise since it was reported that in Feb. 2013, 5 billion minutes were spent shopping. It was also discovered that an average of $274 was spent in the first quarter of 2013 by a typical desktop user shopping online. No wonder that an estimated 289 billion US Dollars in revenue was recorded in 2012 brought about by online shopping.

I recommend these 2 online shops where I usually shop my clothes and other necessity things in the house. ZaloraPH is the great online shop that sells apparels for both Bettys and dudes. Also, LazadaPH is a must check too, as you are more into home decors and appliances.

Boys to Men, or Men to Boys? —Skincare Tips for Looking Young, Fresh, and Healthy

It’s easy to jump out of the shower, throw on some clothes and head quickly out of the door. For many guys, this is the standard “getting ready” routine. However, this rushed regimen can wreak havoc on your body’s largest organ: your skin. Just like your hair needs a regular cut and your nails need periodic trimming, your skin needs some attention, too. Here are some tips for keeping your skin looking fresh and healthy:

Daily Cleanse

Skip the bar of soap and hot water mix, and instead cleanse your face with a good quality facial scrub every morning. A lot of guys just try to keep it simple, hence the bar of soap, but the combined effect of hot water and soap can dry out your skin, which only serves to increase the wrinkles and age you. Not good!

 photo image34_zps73b68f9d.jpeg

Use a Daily Moisturizer

Once your face is nice and clean, apply a daily moisturizer. Ideally, pick one with sun protection factor (SPF) so that not only do you moisturize your skin well but you’ll also protect it from the harsh rays of the sun. Moisturizing every day will help you feel fresher and look younger, and give you softer skin. There are many moisturizers for men out there on the market, so test a few and you’ll quickly see which one is right for you.

Invest in a Quality Razor

Shaving, a daily event for many men, can leave your skin tight, dry, and, if you’re not using the right equipment, irritated. With the right tools, however, you can lessen the effect. Invest in a good quality razor and you won’t be disappointed. Choose one that suits the condition of your skin and beard, be it sensitive or extremely coarse, and avoid cheap, drugstore razors at all costs. Splash some warm water on your face — maybe even squeeze in a quick facial scrub too — to open up those pores, then apply a moisturizing shaving gel before you get started.

Drink Water

You’ve heard it so many times before but it really is true. Drinking a healthy amount of water will keep your body, and your skin, well hydrated and looking its best. Winter weather and temperatures go in particularly hard on the skin, as spending more time in the heated, indoor air can cause your skin to lose moisture. Dehydrated skin can look wrinkly and dry, so make sure you find time for those eight glasses of water a day.

Eat Right

Finally, a healthy diet can also help improve the quality of your skin. Make sure your diet includes the recommended five fruits and vegetables each day. Fruits and veggies are high in antioxidants that will help protect your skin from damage. Carrots, sweet potatoes, kale, spinach and foods high in vitamin C — namely kiwis, blueberries, and papaya—are especially high in these powerful antioxidants so pack them into your meals whenever possible. Then watch how your skin thanks you later on!

 

With the right products and approach you can whip your skin into a fitter, healthier-looking protective layer in no time at all. You’ll look good but feel great! It all starts with a face scrub!

The Best Way To Invest, Coins and Jewelry

 photo modestoGold_zps79f6d18e.gif

In uncertain economic times, jewelry and coins always retain their value. Coins and jewelry pieces are very liquid as they can be sold at anytime for fair prices. It’s important to understand the various factors involved in determining the market value of jewelry, coins and other forms of currency. First and foremost, the precious metal content of a gold is a very important factor in the final sale price. The purity of gold coins is usually rated in 12K, 14K, 18K, 20K and 22K denominations. Naturally, a high purity rating yields a higher market value for a gold coin. By knowing the purity and weight of a gold coin, the value can be calculated at any instant. The only factor that fluctuates is the market price of gold, which changes slightly on a daily basis. However, the price of gold per ounce has been been reaching record highs during the recent U.S. economic recession.

Another factor that plays an important role in the value of a gold coin is age. The older the coin is, the more rare and valuable it is considered to be. For example, a gold coin from the 16th century is more valuable than a coin of the same purity and weight from the 20th century. Gold coins have been minted since ancient times. Most coins from early civilizations are now on display in museums and private collections as historic relics and not currency. For example, it would be impossible to estimate the market value of a gold coin that was minted during Ancient Roman times. In general, foreign gold coins tend to be more expensive than American gold coins when dealing on the American market. Trying to visit a numismatic dealer is an example of searching for a great purchase or sale deal on gold coins that are minted in the United States.

Paper currency can also be very valuable depending on several factors. For example, the United States has released different dollar denominations for brief periods throughout the country’s history. A 5 dollar bill minted during the Civil War in the United States has tremendous historic value in today’s market. Experienced numismatic dealers usually know the history behind all of the currency circulation of the United States dating back to the earliest federal reserves and mints. Rare American coins that are not made of precious metals can still have high value in today’s market.

Late nights cannot be avoided especially if you are as busy as me. I also find that I am able to think more clearly at night when everybody is fast asleep and my surroundings is so quiet. Since everything has consequences, my unhealthy habit has resulted in my having eye bags and dark circles under my eyes. I noticed that it has become more pronounced throughout the years to the point that it has become unsightly. So I decided to do something about it and used Celeteque DermoScience Brightening Eye Tuck Plus Dark Circles Lightener.

This amazing product is manufactured by Unilab, the leading pharmaceutical and healthcare company in the country. They have many other beauty and wellness products that consumers patronize. Celeteque DermoScience Brightening Eye Tuck Plus Dark Circles Lightener has an ingredient called Eyeseryl Tetrapeptide Complex which efficiently counters the formation of loose skin around the eyes by improving skin elasticity and fighting water accumulation, thus preventing puffiness around the eyes. It also brightens the skin around the eyes giving them a glowing look in just a short time.

There are many things I like about this product such as its consistency. It is easy to apply and does not have that sticky after feel. I also like that it comes in a squeeze tube with a narrow nozzle which prevents anything from being wasted. I have been using this continuously and have noticed that the dark circles under my eyes has lightened considerably and I no longer have tired looking eyes.

The Belted Trench

A belted trench is the perfect coat to highlight an hourglass figure, as the belt nips in your waist and exaggerates its tiny size compared to your hips and bust. Tie the belt as tightly as is comfortable to really accentuate your knockout figure and give you a fashionable 1950s look. If you’re particularly busty, then a double-breasted trench will add extra bulk on top, so try a single-breasted trench for a more flattering effect. A belted trench is casual enough to be worn for shopping trip and can be dressed up for a smart night out, so make sure your wardrobe contains at least one!

Printed Leggings

All too often, curvy girls shy away from prints in case they accentuate any lumps and bumps, but in fact prints can be a hot look for any shape and size. The range of printed leggings out there at the moment is huge, from animal print to floral, and a teaming a pair of these fab leggings with killer heels and a tunic top is a great look for everyone. If you have more curves than most, don’t go for all-over prints; instead choose a plain coloured top with some statement jewellery to accessorize your printed leggings. High heels will make your legs appear longer and slimmer, so choose a pair with the highest heels that you feel comfortable walking in.

A Peplum Top

Another great way to accentuate a nipped-in waist is a peplum top, and this style is great for the office, a party or even a casual Sunday brunch. Worn with a pencil skirt, trousers or jeans, peplum tops can by styled up or down and look great on women of all sizes. Don’t be put off by the flared peplum and fret that it’ll emphasize larger hips, in actually camouflages them whilst looking totally on-trend. One thing to get right is to make sure that the waist of the top sits where your actual waist is, otherwise you may lose some of the hourglass effect. Shop around until you find the perfect fit for your body type.

Colour-Blocking

Colour-blocking is using intentionally placed blocks of bright, contrasting colours in your outfit, and looks totally fabulous when done correctly. You don’t want the colours to clash, so think carefully about what colours will complement each other whilst still being different. This trend is the perfect way to draw attention to your favourite areas of your body, whilst playing down your problem areas. Make sure that the bright colours cover the parts you want to highlight, whilst neutral tones hide the parts you want to disguise. A colour-block dress with neutral side panels will give your figure that sexy hourglass shape.

The Wrap Dress

A wrap dress is the perfect go-to dress for shapely girls, and can be worn for any occasion. With their winning combination of cinched-in waist and flattering v-neck, wrap dresses show off your beautiful figure to its best advantage. The tied-in waistline makes women of any size and shape look curvy and fabulous, and a v-neck is great for bigger busts as it draws attention to a great cleavage and elongates the neck. A classic black wrap dress looks great with bright accessories and statement jewellery, but a bold print will also look fantastic.

Whether you’re looking for your own unique style to wear to the office, on a glamorous night out or just for a walk in the park, learning what style best suits your shape is essential for any woman. For those with curves, think nipped-in waists, flattering necklines, clever use of colour as camouflage and showing off your best assets. Play around with different colours, styles and accessories and you’ll have no problems looking sexy and stylish, whatever your size and shape.
