Eiffel Dreams

My ultimate dream is to come and visit Paris and see the famous Eiffel Tower.!! It's been my dream for a long time now but I'm not really sure if that dream would come true since going there is very expensive and getting a visa will be hard for sure. However, who knows? I might win the lottery and I'll have lotsa money to buy a ticket, stay in one of those luxury paris apartments and tour the most romantic city in the world. I’ll still dream BIG!

In the meantime, I’ll just wear clothes with Eiffel Tower images on them to keep my dreams alive. I made this Eiffel Dreams set at Polyvore and I just love the red pants paired with rubber shoes or nude flats. Perfect for weekend outing with friends or errands.

Hair Styling Tips for the Average Joe

Hairstyles, when properly chosen and cut, can flatter any woman. The wrong haircut can seriously damage your look. Beautiful and well-managed hair symbolizes the natural beauty and self-management skills of an individual.

For example, thin and lifeless hair can be cut and styled so that it won’t look limp and dull. When it comes to cutting and styling, layering does the trick. Layering hair gives off the illusion that you have a thicker head of hair than you actually do. A healthy diet, good sleeping pattern and a relaxed way of life also contribute to glowing and healthy hair.

Celebrity Styling Tips From the Pros
You can also take the lead with some celebrity styling hair tips. For example, if you suffer from dandruff, you can grind an aspirin to mix into your shampoo once or twice a week. Dandruff shampoos on the market today are well known for stripping away pigments from color treated hair or even dulling out natural colors. The aspirin will get the dandruff out without any side effects on your strands.

You can use baby powder on your roots when you feel that your hair is a little bit on the greasy side. Models and actresses who are in between shampoos have often worked with a stylist that will dust a little bit of baby powder onto their scalp and then blow dry out and style as usual. The baby powder works to absorb a good amount of the excess oil that is on the scalp at the root area.

Deciding on a Haircut
1. Talk with your salon professional about your hair type and the particular cut that will not only work well with the amount of hair that you have to work with, but also with your facial structure.

2. Do your research. Look at magazines for hairstyles that catch your eye. Try out websites that allow you to upload your picture and try different hairstyles and colors.

3. Before you finalize a new hair styling cut, it is important to consider your overall body shape and personality. Remember, the new hairstyle must compliment your looks and body. If it looks good on your face, it would definitely enhance your overall personality.

4. Consider your way of life, but be open to change. You would be surprised how much a hair color change or highlights can change your hairstyle and improve your over-all look.

5. After the hair cut, ask your hairstylist on how to style your hair so that it looks exactly the same as he styled it. Ask for products you can use to help maintain your hairstyle outside of the salon. Keeping a good line of communication open with your stylist will help you to achieve an overall look that you can be happy with.

Choosing the Best Acoustic Guitar Strings

Seeing my brothers, my niece and nephews play the guitar always make me wish that I can strum the guitar like they do. It's even more admirable to see women play the guitar for they look cool and sexy in my opinion. I once tried learning it but it seems so hard and the strings painful for my tiny little fingers so I end up giving up. I guess I just lack patience in trying to learn it.

The strings are one of the vital parts of the guitar and putting a quality strings can produce good sound quality. Professional or good guitar players are always on the lookout of quality strings for strings can wear out in time due to frequent usage. Acoustic Guitar Strings come in various types and gauge and you need to choose the right one for better sound quality and easiness of use when playing.Choosing acoustic guitar strings also depends on your style and type of your acoustic guitar.

Here are just some of the acoustic guitars that you can get.

A Different Kind of Gift - How to Buy a Collectible Coin as a Present

We use coins every day to buy coffee, pay tips and make change at the grocery store.  Coins are so common that many of us don’t realize their potential value as gifts.

Many old coin specimens are excellent presents.  The shine of a well-preserved 19th century silver dollar can be appreciated by all sorts of people.  Depending upon its type, age and condition, a coin can carry bullion value, antique value (also called “numismatic value”), historical value, artistic or aesthetic value, and even sentimental value.  The right kind of coin, for the right person, can make for a very personal gift.

Before buying a coin as a present, however, there are a few basic principles of the coin trade that you should first understand.

How to buy a coin as a gift
If you’re considering making a gift of a collectible coin, you probably know the person receiving the gift very well.  Think about what sort of coin he might like to have.  If he’s interested in history, ask him about some of his favorite periods and places and try to find a coin minted in one of those places or times.  Some types of coins are very difficult to find at a reasonable price, whether for reasons of age or low mintage numbers.  Others are surprisingly common: if the man in question is interested in Roman history, for example, you should easily be able to find a nice Roman denarius (a small silver coin featuring the portrait of the emperor of the date of the coin’s mintage) for around forty or fifty US dollars.  If he is interested in genealogy, you might instead consider buying a coin from one of the countries his ancestors came from.

Where to buy coins
Collectible coins are sold primarily in four places: coin shows, coin trading stores, flea markets and online auction sites (or, in other words, eBay.)  The first two are generally the best places to buy coins.  When buying, it’s always advisable to deal with coin experts who understand the values of individual pieces and can independently grade coins and weed out counterfeits.  Coin stores and dealers have reputations to protect, so unless you happen to stumble across the rare crooked dealer, you generally won’t be ripped off.

Be wary of flea market sellers and eBay auctions.  Many of the coins sold in these venues are counterfeits.  To be safe, find a coin dealer with a good reputation and buy from him or her instead.

The difference between slabbed and raw coins
A slabbed coin is one that has been verified by a coin grading service as genuine.  Some of the most trusted coin grading services in the United States include PCGS, NGC and ANACS.  These services authenticate old coins and give them “grades” based upon their conditions and the amount of detail still visible on the coin’s surfaces.  These grades consist of letters and numbers together (for example, G-4 and MS-60) and are practically undecipherable to the coin novice.  Just keep in mind that a higher number means the coin is in better condition (MS-70 indicates a perfectly preserved mint condition coin.)  Slabbed coins are so labeled because they are inserted into large clear plastic cases, or slabs, after being graded.

Any coins that aren’t contained in slabs are considered raw.  There’s nothing wrong with buying a raw coin as long as you know it’s genuine – many raw coins are bought and sold by professional coin dealers, who have the ability to sniff out fakes.  Another advantage of buying a raw coin is that you can actually hold it in your hand, which you can’t do with a slabbed coin.

An old, nicely preserved coin can make for an unusual, unexpected, thoughtful and personal gift.  If you want to give a close friend or relative something different this holiday season, consider an antique coin.
