Ok, the first question you are probably wondering is what does choosing shop local style have to do with finding the perfect seasonal looks? Great question! Unlike big chain stores, locally owned shops and boutiques tend to take a focus on a specific type of clothing or style. If you pick and choose correctly, you will soon be the talk of the town in the best way possible; here are some tips on hot to get there.

The word spring might bring to mind sunny afternoons and flowers in bloom, but in actuality Spring begins with a dreadful transition from blistering cold winter into a semi warmer Spring-like day. On day’s like this, it is too warm for a winter coat, but not warm enough to just wear a short sleeve shirt. My advice to you is find a store near you that specializes in light clothing. And if you really want to get fancy, do layers, because you never know when that gloomy 40 degree morning could turn into a sunny 70 degree afternoon in the park!

When that consistent warm weather starts to hit, get a little more adventurous with a casual t-shirt that you can dress up or down. T-shirts are a great way to transition with out spending a ton of money. And while heaps of people will be crowding the mall the moment the temperature rises, you will be able to shop local style with ease at your neighborhood boutique!

Not only will you look great, you will probably get a great deal when you shop local style!

If the above mentioned reasons aren’t convincing enough, just think about the unbearable lines and filled to the brim parking lots you have to trek through to go to the mall. Shop at ease and shop local style!


Why We’re Loving Leather Cable Wraps

Anyone who carries any form of technology around with them these days has dealt with the pain of cables and wires. Since almost everyone at the very least, has a smartphone you would have to be a complete luddite for this to be a nonissue for you. For us, with a smartphone, a laptop and an e-reader to carry around, our bags are constantly filled with a rat’s nest of wires and cables at the bottom. Even if you just want to travel light and carry just a smartphone with you, you’ve got at least two cables to deal with: the charger and the headphones. Stick these two in your pockets and you’ve got to do some untangling every time you want to actually listen to some music on your phone or charge it up. This is why we’re loving leather cable wraps and absolutely swearing by them.

Wireless is not the answer, yet.

Like many manufacturers and a large chunk of the tech industry, we tried to cut down on our dependence upon wires in the last year. We bought a bunch of different bluetooth headphones to use but ran into a number of issues immediately. Firstly and most importantly, the quality of audio was always rubbish or slightly better than rubbish. No matter how many models we tried, we came away disappointed and we soon realised the problem was not one of quality or of implementation but a basic constraint of the bluetooth audio specification. It was simply bot designed for high fidelity sound. We also tried wireless charging and decided to go with the Qi charging standard since it seems to be the most popular We purchased Qi charging compatible phone cases for our iPhone and bought the charging cradle but it didn’t solve the issues of cables. We still had to carry around the base along with its cable and plug it in whenever we needed to charge. Also, the changing was slower and our phones got too hot while charging. The last straw was that if we were carrying bluetooth headphones, we had to carry a phone charging cable for them anyway so it was back to the drawing board. We had tried a number of different cable wraps and wire organisers made of materials like plastic but when we discovered leather cable wraps, we knew we had the answer.

Why Leather Cable Wraps.

The reason is that leather being soft and pliable is extremely comfortable to carry in your pocket, not just at the bottom of a bag. Since it is soft and doesn’t scratch anything, you can even carry your headphones with a cable wrap on them in the same pocket as your phone; safe in the knowledge that your screen or the body of your phone is not going to get scratched or scuffed. The other reason is that leather is extremely durable and unlike plastic wraps, there is almost zero chance of ever breaking it in two or damaging your leather cable wraps. Short of actually taking a very sharp pair of scissors to them, they are practically indestructible. So, unless you deliberately try to ruin them, they will last forever. The next very compelling reason is that they look really good and also feel very good in your hands and in your pockets. This won’t matter as much to people who carry their cables only in bags but it still stands. So, while leather cable wraps may seem like a very low-tech and indeed stop gap solution to your cable woes, for us, they are the most practical solution right now.


How To List Out Every Feature Of A Product And Where To Find The Information

In this article I am going to teach you how you could become the number one website on any products that you are promoting. Now these could be Amazon products, ClickBank products, JVZoo products or any other products that you decide to promote. I am going to show you how to have the most content about your chosen product, how to become the number one resource for that product where people will return again and again if they need to know any information about that product.

So what would website like this look like?

Well, it would have the most information about that product, this information might be in the form of articles, videos, podcasts, a forum, a blog, you might find interviews, there may be buying guides to read and print out, there may also be size guides, price guides, jargon guides and you may find all of these listed on a resources page. There may be a 101 tips guide to download and read.

So how do we get to this point, where we have all of this information on our website?

We are really talking about having the most content, more content than any other website out there about that product. Now this is not as difficult as it may sound. The first thing that you can do is look at the top ten websites for your product by typing the name of the product into a search engine. Then I want you to write out a list of all the features from those websites. Meaning when you go to the website have a look at what features they have written about and make a list of all of them. Also, look at the comments section of the articles, have a look at what people are writing about, what features people are excited about, what they are talking about and also make a list of features they have mentioned as well.

Where else can you go to get more information?

You can also go to YouTube and type in the name of your product and watch the top ten or twenty videos and list out all the features that are also mentioned there. You can go to where people have purchased the product. Now, if you are promoting Amazon products then it’s very easy, all you do is visit the Amazon website and have a look at the product that you are promoting then go to the reviews section. Now this is where people have left a review about that product. What we are looking for are all the features that people have mentioned, if you have already listed out the features from the previous sections, you don’t need to write those down, look for new features and also make a point of looking for features that people are repeatedly mentioning and are excited about.

You can also go to forums and check what features people are talking about there, that works in exactly the same way as going to blogs, going to YouTube or going to Amazon. We are specifically looking for features that people are excited about and what they have mentioned.

There is another place that you can go to find even more information that is the manufacturer’s website,or the marketers website sales page.


Reviews Aren’t Just for Restaurants

Many of us are well aware of review sites such as Trip Advisor, Yelp and Four Square. Not only are we aware of these sites, but many of us regularly check to see what is being said about particular hotels and restaurants before we decide whether to visit them.

It is becoming more and more common for people to rely on customer reviews to help them make an informed decision about where to eat or stay.

Amazon has used a 5 star review system for years now, and I have bought many a book solely on the recommendations of readers. I am quite sure that you have also relied on recommendations before clicking on the “Buy Now” button.

But the question is, what about ratings for local businesses other than restaurants and hotels? For instance, if you do a Google search for Beauty Salons [name of town/city], you will be presented with a list of relevant establishments in that locale.

But what if you are presented with a list of 20 such businesses within 2 miles of where you live? How do you decide which one to select? In today’s society, we have far too much choice in everything, and it would sure help if we could be nudged along so that we could make (in our minds, at least) the correct decision.

Just like books, restaurants and hotels, I wish that more and more brick and mortar businesses would adopt a strategy of gathering reviews. That would certainly make life simpler by allowing potential customers to make more informed choices.

According to the Local Consumer Survey conducted in 2015 by BrightLocal, 92% of consumers regularly or occasionally read online reviews. Not only that, but 97% of 18 – 34 year olds (known as “Millennials”) form an opinion about a business by reading online reviews. If the target market for your business is that demographic, then you seriously need to consider adopting an online review strategy.


How To Find The Best Shoe Inserts For Your Work Boots

Using Shoe Inserts For Work Boots

Many industrial work settings require wearing of special work boots as part of their safety requirements. Such footwear are designed to provide protection to the wearer from falling objects, sharp items that can pierce through the shoe and sole, and insulation from electrical leakages and static discharge. Therefore they are found to be very rigid, solid and sturdy structures to provide as much protection as required.

Although these features impart the best protection as possible, they are often not too comfortable to wear all day long. Due to this reason they tend to cause aches, pain and soreness in the foot region. With prolonged use they give rise to other complications such as corns and calluses, plantar fasciitis, inadequate arch support, and pain and inflammation of the foot. As the pain aggravates many users shy away from using such footwear or experience very harmful and detrimental disorders.

In order to minimize pain and prevent damage caused to your feet, it is recommended that you use appropriate types of insoles for your footwear which help you get the proper support for your feet. It should be noted that different types of insoles are designed to give different types of support. For instance high arch insoles focus more on supporting the foot arches and distribute weight in the correct way starting from the foot up the spinal column.

Selecting Insoles For Work Boots

Your selection should be based on your line of work and any existing foot related problems you already suffer from. Work boots are generally heavy by design due to the added layers of protection required. Hence, look for insoles which are lightweight and don’t more weight for your to carry along. It is also important to select the right size and shape of insole to fit your work boots.

Many insoles are now made with advanced technology to give additional features such as antimicrobial activity, shock absorption and moisture control. They are often made of soft materials such as glycerin, foam and rubber to get different levels of support. For example, high arch insoles would comprise of more stiff material to give adequate support. It is advisable to check the material composition of these insoles if you are prone to allergic reactions.

Some of the best shoe insoles for work boots available in the market include:

  • Superfeet Premium Insoles
  • Dr. Scholl’s Massaging Gel Work Insoles
  • Footminders Arch Support Insoles for Sport Shoes and Work Boots
  • Spenco Polysorb Heavy Duty Men’s Insoles

Leather Goods How to Determine the Quality of the Material

When you go shopping for leather items, you easily tend to get confused. It’s only natural. The market is brimming with so many products. And, if you don’t have enough knowledge about the material, you can never decide which is real and which is not. The shopkeeper might even offer you cheap quality items produced with low craftsmanship that will not last for long.

Learn how to tell the overpriced from the reasonable. Know which product has a high standard finish, and which does not. And remember, hand-made products are always better than machine-made items. If the manufacturer has cut corners, there is no chance that the product you are buying is genuine and durable.

  • Here is how to tell real and fake leather apart:

The first thing you should notice is a quality tag that speaks of a full grain material. Those who manufacture products from fake materials, never claim them as authentic in written. If you are in two minds, it is safer not to buy it. Because the material is a natural substance, no synthetic procedure can ever match up to its authenticity in terms of look and feel. It is a timeless substance and no synthetic material can sustain wear and tear as much as it can. Ditch the genuine tag for this full grain stamp.

If an item says it is genuine, chances are that it is only an extract from the backside of skins. The patterns that you see are all artificial. They are intentionally applied to mimic the look of the original material. And, about softness and durability, well, you can forget that. So, while buying leather goods, you must look for full grain products. Such items have the typical characteristic of an unpolished surface. There is no coat applied on them to hide the natural markings, which are actually the scars of the animals from which the material comes.

  • How to decide which quality is the finest of all:

Ascertain the quality quotient from the method of selecting the animal skin, and even from the tanning procedure. The first aspect will tell you about the cleanliness of the material and the amount of scars present in it. The cleaner the material, the better. Again, tanning treats the hide and prepares it for the process of production.

This process makes the products sturdy and enhances their longevity. Tanned leather does not decay very easily because it undergoes a chemical treatment, which helps in preventing decomposition. Tanning makes the material soft and supple. Because this feature is very distinct from that of synthetic materials, you can pick it with effortlessly.

  • How to find a product with a good finish:

Durable products should come with durable linings. Avoid buying bags that have a light, flimsy inside. Take this attempt as a long-term investment. You do not want your investment to go futile, do you? Moreover, keenly look for the edges of the exterior. If the product is really high on the quality quotient, it will have hand-treated, polished edges instead of ragged, rough surfaces. For instance, if you are buying a bag, it is important to notice the smoothness of the handles for great comfort.

  • How to keep up the quality product you have just bought:

After you have purchased a fine product, you must worry about its upkeep, too. You can opt for a purpose-made conditioner to keep the leather from becoming rough. Never place your product in a dark, wet place; you will only encourage the growth of mould. Allow enough ventilation and let the material breathe freely. Above all, never expose your product to direct sunlight for too long. It will become dry and hard. Invest a little in its upkeep and you will have a happy product always.

Raincoats come in handy in keeping you dry when it rains. When you choose right, you can actually get a raincoat that keeps you dry and warm at the same time. As a retailer, you will want to choose a manufacturer and supplier who makes your order and delivery of the garments easy. There are many manufacturers promising better services, but what qualities should you look for so that you can choose the most reliable supplier?

Product quality – A good manufacturer values the quality of raincoats that they channel to the market.

Variety – Raincoats cut across gender and age. A reliable manufacturer should be able to produce and supply men raincoats, women, boys, girls and ladies raincoats. Apart from the raincoats, a supplier with other products such as rain jackets and waterproof ponchos will give you the freedom to choose items that are relevant to your target audiences.

Short delivery – When you place your order for the raincoats, you should have them produced as fast as possible. A manufacturer should have the needs of the client in mind when producing and delivering orders. Quick turnaround is very important because it makes it possible for you as the customer to get your order delivered so you have them ready before the rainy season begins. The raincoats are on high demand just before the rainy season begins and during the season and delays can rob you valuable sales. Choose a raincoat supplier you can trust to deliver fast.

Experience – A manufacturer who has years of experience producing and exporting raincoats will be much easier to work with. The experience gives you assurance that everything will work smoothly with your order and at the end of the day you will have the high quality products you expected.

Flexible payment – When paying for your order, you should feel safe and secure. The payment methods made available should be good enough to meet with the varying customer preferences. A good raincoat manufacturer should offer more than one trusted payment method so you are able to choose the one you are most comfortable with.

Customization services – Apart from having ready raincoats for you to choose from, a reliable supplier will give you the possibilities of customizing the jackets and coats you want. The customization services will help you choose the right designs, colors and sizes to match the preferences of your clientele.

Delivery services – When you place an order with a manufacturer offering shipping and export services, you do not have to worry how far they are from you. The services should be offered at reasonable rates depending on how large your order is. Check to see that the export terms are good enough for your needs.

Mooncup Review

I first came across the Mooncup about a year ago. My periods returned approximately 9 months after the birth of my second child. At first they were manageable, but as time went by they started to get more painful and far heavier. Since starting my periods at the age of 9, I have had problems with both the heaviness and pain despite taking medication which is supposed to help with that. I am always having to get up during the night, sometimes several times, and throughout the day I have to change sanitary products as frequently as every half an hour to an hour. I dread to think how much money I have had to spend on tampons and pads throughout the years.

It was after my periods returned following the birth of my second child that I realised tampons simply weren’t an option any more. They were extremely uncomfortable and leaked a lot. I resorted to using pads which I was having to change every half an hour to an hour. It was not just inconvenient, but it was also very expensive and I felt tied to the house 24/7. I couldn’t sleep at night, knowing I would have to get up, and was very tired and fed up with the whole thing.

This is when I started to research alternatives and came across the Mooncup. The Mooncup is a menstrual cup made from soft medical grade silicone. It is latex-free, hypoallergenic, it contains no dyes, BPA, phthalates, plastics, bleaches or toxins. It sits low inside the vagina where it forms a light seal and collects the menstrual fluid. The key word here is ‘collects’. The fluid is collected in the cup, rather than being absorbed in the way that pads and tampons do (which often leads to dryness and irritation). It can collect much more than a tampon can absorb, as much as three times more, which can greatly reduce the bathroom visits. This definitely appealed to me due to the amount of night-time disturbance I was experiencing.

There are two sizes available. Size A is suitable for women over 30 years old and for any women who have had vaginal births. Size B is suitable for those who are under 30 years old and have either never had children or who have had a Caesarean. I’ve had two children so I am the size A.

Inserting the Mooncup can be tricky at first, but gets easier with time and practice. The Mooncup can be folded in one of two ways, it is simply down to personal preference when deciding which fold to use. If you have experience with using a diaphragm it may make inserting the Mooncup easier as you will already be familiar with insertion into the vagina.

The Mooncup is first folded using the desired method, keeping it firmly held in one hand. The other hand is used to find the entrance to the vagina and guide the Mooncup inside. The Mooncup should be guided up towards your back and sits low down in the vagina. The Mooncup comes with a stem that should be trimmed if any part of it sits outside the body. This should be done gradually so as not to remove too much. The stem should be trimmed if too long as this can make the vaginal entrance sore.

The Mooncup should be removed and emptied every 4-8 hours. Like with any menstrual product, it is important to wash your hands with soap and water before insertion and before removal. The cup can be cleaned with water or with a mild soap (non-perfumed). If using soap the cup should be well rinsed afterward. Any trace of leftover soap could cause irritation. If cleaning your Mooncup in a public toilet, take a bottle of water into the toilet with you where you will be able to empty the contents of the cup into the toilet, rinse the cup with water and then re-insert it. When travelling, remember to use drinking water to clean the Mooncup. If abroad then make sure you have bottled water to hand.

The Mooncup comes with a breathable cotton bag. It should be thoroughly dried before being stored in the bag between periods.

There are several different reasons for using the Mooncup. It could be that you want to be more eco-friendly. One woman may get through 20 or more disposable sanitary products per period. These all end up in landfill. In a time where we are being urged to recycle and reuse, the Mooncup is a brilliant product to have available. If all women were using Mooncups we would be eliminating a huge amount of rubbish.
Perhaps you’re looking for something that is good value for money and long-lasting. The Mooncup costs only £19.99 from the online store at I spend about £10 on sanitary products per period so if I were solely using the Mooncup it would have paid for itself within two months. The Mooncup can last for many years if cleaned and cared for properly.

There are also health reasons for using a Mooncup. The Mooncup doesn’t contain anything that can dry out or irritate the body, such as perfumes. When using tampons I used to suffer with bad soreness and dryness but since using the Mooncup I haven’t had any irritation.

The Mooncup website contains a wealth of information which can be referred to at any time and they are always happy to answer any questions.

The Mooncup has changed my life for the better. I am ever so glad that I found it and made the decision to go ahead and buy it. I no longer feel tied to the house all day, repeatedly making visits to the bathroom. I can sleep for longer at night knowing that the Mooncup collects three times as much as a tampon. I am less tired, less moody,

I’m not irritated like I am with tampons. I do have sensitive skin and often find sanitary products irritate me, but this issues are no longer now that I am using the Mooncup.


How to Buy a Baby Bouncer Seat What Every Parent Needs to Know

The great thing is that these baby bouncer seats are a safe place to put your newborn baby, they have a slight angled seat, so you can lay baby down with confidence to get on with other tasks, such as cleaning the house, washing dishes or even taking a quick shower. Because they are light in weight, you can move them around the house with ease, keeping baby in each room with you without actually having to hold them all the time.

You will be faced with a range of choices when choosing a baby bouncer seat, which means you may want to take note of the choices to find what is going to be the right choice to meet your particular parenting needs.

One of the first choices you are going to have to make is whether to choose a baby bouncer seat that is motorized or works on it’s own. The motorized ones come as mains power or battery, some both, so you can choose which one is the right match based on your needs. Battery is probably the best option, enabling you to use the seat anywhere without having to rely on mains power, but you must expect to go through a lot of batteries as your child continues to grow.

Next make sure any baby bouncer seat you buy comes with safety straps to firmly hold your newborn in place and cut the risk of them falling out of the seat as they get older and start to roll and move around more. Remember when buying the item now, focus on your baby’s growth and choose a seat that will benefit them from newborn to a few months old, so you only have to buy one bouncer that will last you their baby years.

Choose a baby bouncer seat that provides you with removable seat covers. The seat is guaranteed to get dirty over time, especially when using it regularly, which will mean that being able to remove the seat cover and throwing it in the washing machine will be a blessing, keeping it clean and fresh.

Take note of the frame of the baby bouncer seat. You want a sturdy frame that you can trust. The frame should be strong and durable and able to withstand a beating. Also focus on the comfort of the seat to make sure your baby will be able to lie in the seat comfortably, enabling them to drift off to sleep or spend a bit of time in there without getting restless.

Always look for any more extras you may be able to get with the baby bouncer seat. Some come with a toy bar or a sun canopy, so you can use it outdoors. Some even come with a mobile already in place that will play music to entertain baby while you get your housework done.

Some of the things you will want to remember once you bring your baby bouncer seat home is to check for a certification. If you have ordered online and cannot find a certification then return it for a full refund.

Never place the seat near any hazards which may be dangerous. While this sounds obvious, don’t place the seat too close to the radiator on a cold day or too close to the table where something may fall off and injury baby.

Never place the baby bouncer on a table or carry it by the toy bar when your baby is in the seat. Always make sure you follow the manufacturers instructions.
