Back-up For Safe Measures

Remember how lost you where the last time your site or your blog went awry only because you have decided to activate a plug in or add in a one-line html code in your theme editor and your blog suddenly decided to become wonky? Chances are those plug-ins or codes do not go well with your blogs other settings and specification that is why it did not yield a positive result. I am sure you or your blogger friends have been in this scenario many times over and if you are one of those experiences ones, you have probably made the effort to tick on that “back up” button before touching anything in your blog. Lucky you! Novices and greenhorn bloggers and website owners do not have as much luck as you do. Chances are they’d lost their entire blog + they have to re-install some software or plug-ins to keep it working again. It does pay to back-up for same measures, and while you’re at it, you might as well check out this online backup review site for useful and insightful trips and tricks of the trade.

Fashion at A Steal

I did mention about my love for shopping, but I guess most of you will wonder whether I am spending a huge portion of my money to buy all the stuffs that I want whenever I go on those trips. If truth be told, it takes a huge amount of self-control to not do exactly just that, but I have mastered the art of buying only what I really need and want as oppose to panic buying or hoarding on any random item I see in the display rack. It also works wonders to be up-to-date with the latest promos in the mall I frequent, that way, I know when the end-of-season sales are or when they’d mark down products at half the price to celebrate a certain holiday. I take advantage of these times by buying most of the stuffs I need when they are on sale at a much cheaper price. For example, if I chance upon a prom dress sale or a winter jacket sale, or a swimwear sale, early in January, I will jump at the opportunity as they would normally sell those items at a very low price around this time.

Being updated with fashion need not burn a hole in your pockets, you just need to be clever enough to know where to get the most fabulous finds and the best bargains and deals!

Money is not everything: Trite but True!

This is a shared photo by friends from Facebook to denounce the cutting of trees in Baguio City to give way to the construction of a multi-level parking bay by a well-known shopping mall.  We don’t have the money or power to counter what this big business(es) is up to, but we can do something to make people aware of the adverse effects of disrespect to nature.
