Debt Consolidation Means A Lifestyle Change

fashion16

When it comes to personal debt, financial experts from around the world agree on one thing: it is a symptom of a much bigger problem with the individual. Debt can build up slowly over the years until it reaches a point where you are paying off so much debt that your personal income doesnt cover what you have to pay each month and worse, you might have to start taking on more debt to fill the gap between income and expenditure.

Its very easy to get in to debt, with the consumer society we live in we have been led to believe that we can have it all right now and pay for it in manageable bitesize chunks each month. The financial crisis and ongoing recession has proved that the buy now, pay later culture fostered by the credit and retail companies was an unsustainable dream and now many people have great TVs, awesome cars, went on fantastic holidays but have huge debt mountains that have to be dealt with.

Debt consolidation is a great tool for many families to pull themselves out of the miserable debt cycle. The lower rate of interest gives breathing space each month so you can use your income for essential living costs rather than paying off interest on the couches you bought a few years back, it will reduce your stress levels as you wont get new bills every day and you can make that one easy payment each month right after you get paid.

Once youve consolidated your debt though you need to rethink your lifestyle and attitude towards credit. If you havent already, now might be the right time to cut up those credit cards particularly the store cards that have crazy interest rates. A new attitude needs to be adopted of waiting to have the money to buy something rather than having everything now and repaying it later. The consumerist lifestyle also needs to be rethought; do you really need to take a foreign holiday each year? Can the gas guzzling SUV be traded in for something more economical? Is there a cheaper place to buy groceries and apparels?

The danger with debt consolidation is that you dont change your lifestyle and manage your income and expenditure to ensure you dont spend more than you have each month. Debt consolidation is your second chance to get your finances in order there isnt a third chance because if you fail to change your ways after consolidating your debt and continue buying gadgets and going out to restaurants and then paying for it all on credit then you risk losing your home, family and lifestyle.

Its a pretty scary thought so once youve consolidated your debt, change your ways, change your attitudes to money and think of the relief youll have in 5 years when you are finally debt free.

fashion17

The warm weather of summertime is rejuvenating and pleasant, and the warm weather brings thoughts of changing lifestyle for the season. Working in the yard mowing grass, planting flowers, tending a vegetable garden, outdoor cooking, and playing in the pool suddenly become favorite pastimes. During the warm, summer weather, many times a dip in the pool turns into an afternoon event. A part of summer living is decorating an indoor or outdoor living space with beautiful, relaxing furniture for the summer season. Depending on personal taste, there are furniture choices in metal, wicker and rattan as well as teak and others.

Stylish, summertime furniture for the indoor and outdoor living space is available in many unique materials from wrought iron to teakwood. Cast aluminum and wrought iron furniture are both stylish and sturdy choices, and the metal construction can withstand rough wear and extreme weather. Cast aluminum and wrought iron are great for outdoor spaces, and the metal designs range from simple patterns to ornate works of art.

These outdoor furniture choices are maintenance free, and for a splash of color, tie pillows to the metal chairs and lounges for added beauty and comfort. Rattan and wicker summer furniture are popular choices for the pool, deck, patio, and sunroom.

These all-weather furniture pieces are stylish with exquisite designs, and the rattan, garden-style construction is a great choice for open or closed sunroom areas.

These natural furniture choices blend with the outdoor beauty and are sturdy enough to withstand the hot sun and other extreme weather conditions. Change the look of both rattan furniture and also wicker furniture with a variety of colorful pillows that add comfort and a unique style to any setting.

The tropical feeling of teakwood furniture offers a relaxed atmosphere, which is wonderful for summertime living. Teak furniture is solid wood with a smooth finish, and many teak owners add a splash of color to the wood pieces using bright pillows and umbrellas.

Because there are so many summertime furniture choices for designing an indoor or outdoor living space, it is a good idea to determine in advance entertainment and living needs. An enclosed garden room requires different furniture choices than a poolside atmosphere. By taking the time to make the right furniture choices, you will express the summertime season in exquisite style.

Breastfeeding Tops You Can Take To The Catwalk

fashion1

Who says you can’t wear anything stylish while you’re pregnant or nursing? The modern woman knows that pregnancy or nursing a child does not mean that she has to wear sacks or shapeless clothing. Wearing sacks while pregnant can only be pulled off by gorgeous celebrity mums such as Angelina Jolie or Halle Berry, but not if you’re the average type of woman who juggles a job and the family life.

So, if you want to look good during pregnancy or while you are nursing, check out these fashion tips on how you can mix and match those maternity clothes and breastfeeding tops.

1.The most basic breastfeeding and maternity tops can be paired with stylish crocheted cardigans or a print scarf. If your shirt has prints on them, however, make sure that you choose a plain scarf or coat so you would not have that “busy” look. Cropped and open weave cardigans can look good on a pregnant or nursing mum.

2.Mix and match colours wisely. No, that blue vest and orange shirt do not match, so you better put it back inside your closet. A pink shirt and green pants do not look good on a woman also, whether she is pregnant or otherwise. A combination of pink and green only works on the catwalk, not on the crib or dinner table. Match colours that are near each other in the colour wheel.

3.Neutral colours, such as white, gray, black, and brown, would look good on any woman. Black breastfeeding tops and maternity clothes are especially helpful in camouflaging the shape of a swollen belly or accumulated weight post-pregnancy. White maternity tops can cool you down during hot summer months, while gray will match shirts of any colour. Just don’t wear brown trousers with green shirts or black shoes.

4.Maternity and nursing dresses are great during spring and summer. Stay away from sheaths that will emphasize your protruding tummy and go for empire cut dresses with enough space on the tummy area that will accommodate your expanding waistline.

5.You can wear these maternity or nursing clothes even in different occasions. Out on a date with your husband? Then try a V neck red shirt that you can pair with stretchy trousers. Wear a knitted tunic or a turtleneck shirt on your next get-together with friends. Picnics and outings on the beach can be comfortable with dresses or tunics designed especially for pregnancy or nursing.

6.Go for details, but don’t overdo them. One of the best details for mums is the broderie Anglaise which can be seen on skirts and paired with chic breastfeeding tops. Go easy on the ruffles and laces. If you’re a minimalist, look for clothes with classic designs but those that will enhance your femininity.

Keep in mind that you don’t have a responsibility to look frumpy just because you’re pregnant or you’ve just given birth. You can mix and match maternity tops and other maternity clothes to suit your own style.

Eco Gifts 5 Tips On Giving Stylish Eco Freindly Gifts

images12

Increasingly there is an awareness of the ecological aspect of gift giving, both on an individual level, and by companies who are anxious to incorporate sustainability as a part of their gift giving. We are often asked to supply eco gifts, and find it is not difficult to find suitable gifts, but it may take a little extra thought.

This does not mean adopting a tie-dyed hippy approach, but instead a little consideration to find stylish yet more sustainable gifts. We have all experienced one of those other gifts at some time. Multi layered packaging, which eventually reveals a clam-shell like plastic casing, which in turn protects its treasure of some cheaply made item which barely lasts past Christmas. All which will find its way to the nearest landfill before long.

There are many ways to give more eco friendly gifts. Five of the key considerations are:

Shop locally.
If you are supplying a locally made gift, you will not be adding additional transportation miles to the finished product. You are also in a position to know more about the environmental stance and reputation of the manufacturer as regards pollution, recycling etc.

Buy quality.
Cheaply made products inevitably do not last, requiring replacement sooner and creating more waste. The recipient and the environment will appreciate your good judgment in choosing a quality item instead of an alternative of inferior quality.

Encourage environmentally sound behaviour with your gift.
For example give a tree to be planted, or perhaps a book on gardening or environmental issues. Consider solar powered gifts, or those that can take batteries which are solar powered. Children can be enthused with gifts like a paper making kit (involving recycling of paper) or making a worm house

Choose the most appropriate gifts you can.
Spend time considering your recipients. Well chosen gifts will encourage their usage and retention. This makes your gift more appreciated, and less likely to make a quick journey to the landfill. Consider artisan hand made gifts. These may be more unique, and can have more appeal on an emotional level, and therefore be retained longer. They may also be better made than a mass manufactured alternative, and therefore will last longer.

Consider the materials your gift is made with, and packed in.
Are there more natural materials or even recycled options available? Is there a more natural packaging alternative, for example woven flax gift baskets, jute bags or wooden boxes made from sustainably harvested pine trees with wood shavings.

With a little thought and consideration of environmental impact, your gifts can be both stylish and sustainable.

We are happy to help with advice, and you should not hesitate to ask your gift retailer for more information, which will encourage more stocking of environmentally sound products.

Chesterfield Sofas Selling The Lifestyle

Whats the best way to sell a product? Should manufacturers concentrate on the product itself, or should they try to sell it as part of a lifestyle choice? Well, judging by the way the chesterfield sofa is increasingly used in advertising these days; it would appear that you need to concentrate on aspirational marketing and selling a lifestyle. The clever advertisers paint a picture of domestic bliss, stylish modern living or traditional homely comfort. The thing is these iconic chesterfield sofas and chairs are stealing the show, though its arguable whether that wasnt actually the advertisers intention. Still, chesterfield sofas have been stealing the headlines for centuries now and will no doubt continue to do so.

It started with Virgin Medias advertisement for their TiVo box. Wheel in a famous actor, Mark Warren: sit him on a stylish contemporary chesterfield sofa and sell a lifestyle along with the product, and hey presto, youre onto a winner. The advert is now legendary as is the sofa, and Virgin are laughing all the way to the bank. Then came Boss with their Orange fragrance for men: cue Orlando Bloom, and a host of traditional chesterfield chairs. The tills then started ringing job done. If that was good enough for Boss, it was also good enough for Liam Gallagher. He chose to market his Pretty Green fashion labels latest collection by employing the services of a be-suited Paul Weller and a sumptuous-looking chesterfield chair. A classic cut suit and a classic item of furniture: it was the match made in heaven.

Not to be outdone, Boss is back in the mix again with its female fragrance version of Orange. The advert pictures English actress Sienna Miller seductively draped across an ultra-stylish chesterfield-inspired white leather chair. She might be better known as an actress in films like Alfie, or the on-off-on partner of fellow actor Jude Law, or even as one of the witnesses in the current Leveson Enquiry into media standards, yet Miller is the perfect choice for the latest fragrance campaign: a typical English rose, but with modern appeal and a sense of fun. Traditional classic looks with a contemporary twist. Hence the contemporary chesterfield chair: sleek and stylish, but with an impeccable pedigree.
