With all the advancement in technology you can really so impulsive in letting go of your money as the innovations in mobile phones and other gadgets are so tempting. I’m one of those people who love gadgets but I can say I can manage my whims to the point of controlling my finances in buying only the needed ones. I know my priorities in life and only once in a year on my birth month particularly that I succumb to my wants and buy what I love.
Last year I saved up for a vacation in Baguio instead of buying a new gadget as the cost is just the same. This year I’m going to include some musical instruments on my wish list so my kids can update on their music playing. I can also buy some replacement like John Pearse guitar strings to upgrade the old strings on our guitar and for backup too when we need immediate replacement. My kids would need this on summer vacation when they have free time away from school works.

For those who happened to know long playing albums in the past decades or those who used to play LP in turntable this product may seem familiar to you.

Grommet curtains exude a touch of elegance and style compared with other curtain designs. Their exquisite looks and the eyelet where the rod is inserted make them suitable for formal rooms, office and dining area. They are so popular in both big and small houses because they are convenient to use by placing the rod inside the eyelet, the curtain panel is now ready to hang.
It is also ideal for bedrooms since they can be easily adjusted if you like to close them or open to allow some sunlight in the room. If you have a ceiling to floor windows or French doors, the curtains work best because they are easily folded when you want to slide the door without leaving wrinkles on the fabric. They are usually made of light materials and the price could reach as low as ten dollars.
Although you can purchase grommet curtains at low prices, just be aware of imitations. Their popularity has prodded some manufacturers to produce low quality curtains. When you buy, look for reliable brand that gives you enduring and trendy curtains. The most ideal grommet curtain panels are those that provide your window with fullness and height.
Choose a curtain that is floor length or below the window sill. Most fabrics used in the manufacturing of these curtains are made of faux silk which makes it look regal,silk for elegance and taffeta for simplicity. When it comes to fullness, the basis in getting the exact length and size is the curtain must be two times bigger than the size of the window.
The rod dimension should be compatible with the size of the eyelet. Use your creativity when putting the curtains by having a 4 to 6 inches wide stack back to make the window appear big while allowing more light to enter the room. The bigger the window is, the bigger the number of panels are needed.

Photography is one of my passions in life aside from writing and cooking. It excites me to shoot the sky, events, flowers and kids’ faces. My children’s school events would never pass without my best shots and every moment in our family life is always recorded in photos. I may not have the most expensive camera but I always capture the best shots to record our fondest and memorable moments. Memories of our past are best to remember through photos.
Throughout the years its value is priceless and beyond compare that’s why I always see to it that I record every moment so when my kids gets older they’ll have memories of their childhood written in every picture they see. If my photos consists mainly of kids, events and food some other have fascination of other own. I’ve known a friend who practices photography in the forest and takes wildlife camera traps and SLR camera with him whenever he schedule photo shoot in the wilderness. It takes some courage and patience but it’s worth it because if you’ll see his best shots you’ll be amazed at how he captured the best of the wildlife.

Creating a website is the best way to market your business online. However, creating a website is a complex process. You need to register the domain name, find a hosting provider, build the website, launch the website, maintain the website, and market the website. How much does a website cost? This all depends on who you choose to work with and how much you are willing to spend.
Average Cost of a Website
Some people spend $2,000 to build a standard website while others will spend upwards of $13,000. Here is a basic breakdown of the average costs you can plan to spend when building a quality website:
· Domain Name – roughly $10-$50 a year
· Hosting Services – varies based on traffic and needs, usually costs $25 to $200 a year
· Website development and design – the cost will vary based on the number of hours required to build the website
· Yearly website maintenance – roughly $500 a year or more
· Marketing a website – varies based on marketing schemes, usually starts at $400 a month or more
Figuring the Cost
The cost of a website will vary based on so many different factors. Some people have an easy time creating a website for practically nothing, but they usually find the site doesn’t get a lot of attention because it’s poorly designed, or it is not marketed. To figure the cost, it helps to sit down with a professional company to discuss different designs and your needs. While you are building the site, one of the important things you need to consider including is a mobile website.
With a large majority of people turning to mobile coupons, you need to do your best to make sure you are creating a website worthy of mobile integration. Another thing to consider is online shopping. If you plan to include a shopping cart, the design and maintenance costs will increase. Security is a major issue when accepting online payments, you need to make sure you are providing your customers with the right security so their personal information is not compromised. How much does a website cost? It all depends on working with the right professionals and creating the right design.

I’m always fascinated with high technology gadgets though I don’t buy every update I see online. I usually buy my dearest wish on my birthday to reward myself for all the hard work on my offline and online jobs. I’m fond of searching through newest update on digicams, phones, tablets, laptops as I want to know the most-sought after specifications so when I buy I will be assured that I get the best worth of my hard-earned money.
Well technology has further advanced its innovations to varied fields and industries including the music world. Now most musical instruments are upgraded to the high level of customers’ expectation. I’m amazed at the latest finds I got online including electric guitars, amplifiers and accessories like subwoofer pole mount at musicians friend. My family loves music and my kids play musical instruments so it excites us to know that music is also innovating to achieve optimal performance.

My daughter tried the electric bass guitar last week and she loves the feel of it especially that it’s easy to pluck than her acoustic. The head musician in the church is training her for a church pianist but once in a while he let her use the electric guitar. My daughter loves techie gadgets and it expands to her music instruments as now she’s canvassing for her own electric guitar.
I hope with this new wish on her list she will not include other musical accessories like inexpensive cardiode instrument microphone at guitar center as I have no funds for those right now. Well I’m happy that my kids are very interested with musical instruments but they will have to wait if they want to ask for high tech instruments. Next year I’ll save for their dream instruments like drum set for the little boy and electric guitars for my two teenagers so they will also improve their skills and be professional enough to play in the church.

A Galaxy Note 2 rubber case could be just what the phone doctor ordered to protect your phone from scrapes, drops, and other mishaps. If it helps, you can think of the case as a form of vaccination against the little traumas in life without all of the controversy and rules that surround real vaccinations. Your phone is important to you, yet as it comes from the factory, it is terribly blah.
When one of the greatest innovations that Apple introduces is that its phone can come in colors, you know something is wrong. It’s like we are all back in the time when Henry Ford introduced the automobile. “People can have any color car they want, as long as it’s black.” Ford had to cave just a couple years later when he introduced different colored chassis.
This is America. Americans take pride in their individuality. That’s how the west was won, and that long tradition should not be squelched by the impersonal, mass production of mega-conglomerate corporations who would prefer that people became consuming machines rather than those with a conscience and choice. It is a good thing that companies created cases that come in different colors and styles and have different motifs. You can get everything from Disney to skulls for your phone. Are you an Autobot or a Decepticon? There’s a case for that. The best part is that unlike a car paint job, these cases are relatively cheap. When you tire of one, you can get another, or switch them out every day.
Like a Red Rubber Ball A Galaxy Note 2 rubber casecan help save a lot of abuse that your phone might otherwise absorb. Just because the case is rubber does not mean that it turns your phone into a bouncy ball, so do not throw it against the ground in an attempt to see how high it will bounce. (Unless you are getting a new phone, don’t care about the toxic materials in the phone, and are filming it to be put on YouTube and become the next, great viral video.)
