Life on The Road Again for 2009

According to Chinese traditional calendar, the new year 2009 has just begun for less than 10 days. So everything has got a fresh new start and you get all the vigor back again after a long 7 days rest at home with family, eating well enough to frighten your own stomach.

Now comes the time to draw a blueprint for the new year if you don't want to have another repeat year without any aim and expectations. Or use the old sayings: new year resolutions.

As for me, 2009 would be a special year with reasons I don't want to exlore here, and to the detail, I have the flowing nice hopes.

1, Try to raise a pet in the new year. I love the french bull dog, oh, it got a black and white cute face, making you laugh at the sight of it. Since one first need to get yourself raised well to raise a pet, so not a easy thing for me for the moment.

2, Learn to cook more nutritious yet tasty food. We are always busy, busy, and busy, to even forget the basic happyniess in the life is "eating". Eating makes us happy and it's also the most simple thing that we can satisfy ourselves, so feeling happy can be easy if you learned to cook delicious food and share with others. Sometimes going to restarurents is not the best choice.

3, Save money for the home decoration project. My boyfriend and I decided to use our own money to purchase all the home electronics items in the near furture. In this way, we would feel more happy and satisfactory when use those products everyday. Besides, the process of buying those electronics itself is great fun that we both would enjoy very much.

Perfect Pants to Fit Your Leg Shape

Pants are the number one wardrobe item. Women want to wear pants that look great and are comfortable at the same time whether you are sitting or walking. That’s why the style you choose is so important.
If you buy a pant online simply because of others saying it's great and perfectly cutted, then you are greatly wrong. Remember, pants pick legs and body shape.

We all know that the tight straingt pants are in fashion, but ff you are not with a perfect long leg shape, don't ever try the straight pantsm, it may look awkard on you. There are many women wearing the tight pants in the street, but in fact, seldom anyone could wear them well and nice.

The more safe choice would be the Cropped (九分裤),cropped styles (around ankle length or a few inches above) is suitable for most people. The key is to wear a high-heels to go along with it. Otherwise, it may just be another plain pants.

Fabric also is important when it comes to choosing pants that will be flattering. All types of fabrics such as denim, corduroy, velveteen, cotton, knits, and medium weight blends are used for pants. Unless you’ve got a perfect figure it’s wise to avoid fabrics that cling as they will emphasize your faults.

Consider both the design and the texture of fabric when buying pants. Some fabrics can be uncomfortable because they are itchy or bulky. Make sure the pattern is appropriate to your size and shape and as well to the style of the pants.

A proper fit will make your pants attractive and comfortable. They should fit snugly at the waist and then fit smoothly but not overly tight through the hips and thighs. Pants do not fit correctly if they ripple at the waist, wrinkle or bag in the crotch, if the press seam is off center, and if the waistline is pulling either at the back or the front.

Anyway, keep a mind of your own leg size and waist size, and know your style. Comfort is ahead of style if you are asking me what's the priority.

A Necktie Man Who also Enjoys Folding Bike

It seems like that necktie and folding bike can't be tied to one man, since necktie represents a kind of formal style, suit type man that generally not so young or so old, and are doing extrovert jobs or market jobs that may require a formal looking everyday.

And folding bike exercese is a kind of casual lifestyles and a new trend in young men in the big cities, who may enjoy the weekend of taking a folding bike to explore the nature wild in the city, to have a better exercise in the outside. Young and cool guys like this cycling sport very much.

So why not the racing bike, but the folding bike ? Acturally, the folding bike I'm talking about is not the kids stuff, it's more professioanl like and suitable for putting into a backpack when you are climibing a mountains. Mountains, that's what a wild exploration should include, so a plain bike would not suit to bring to the mountain area.

But who says an necktie type looking man could not change the style once in a while to enjoy a more casual lifestyle, to wear those soft T-shirt and short pants, try to play the folding bike. Those professiaonl folding bike gadgets are really expensive, but it can bring us a lot of fun and benifits.

It's lightweight, chic designed, and with excellent function. It's novel, so it got market in a society where people all looking for some difference and excitement in life.

Folding bike may also be utilized by those are not living near the subway, and don't have a car, and it may be your best choice to ride to the subway and then folding it when you get there. It's a very recommanded way of transportion in the big cities now.

Budget Weddings in a Time of Financial Uncertainty

In this terrible time of financial uncertainty, wheather you are directly influenced by this crisis or are still intact, you should be more careful about your cash flow from now on.

Since young people still have to get married, you have to give a good thought about how to save money and have a budget but still perfect wedding.

It starts from renting a wedding dress. Apparel cost is huge in a wedding. Renting is less expensive than buying. Men have been renting tuxedos for years, why not wedding dress rental for women? This isn't as far fetched as it may sound. In addition to buying a wedding dress, most brides have to contend with preserving and storing the wedding dress. With a wedding dress rental, all the bride has to do is choose the dress, wear it, and return in within the allotted time period. She doesn't even have to worry about the dry cleaning.

With careful planning, costs can be kept under control and a stylish wedding achieved for a fraction of this figure. Here are some more tips.

1. Rings
Ask yourself if you really need to spend thousands on something some people lose or which wears out and becomes unusable.

2. Food
Think about making the food yourself, or at least the puddings and starters. Ask at local catering colleges if they provide a service; you might still get quality but at half the price. Alternatively, ask everyone to bring a dish!
The wedding cake needn’t be expensive either. Think about making it yourself, or go for a simple sponge. A current trend is to serve small individual ‘cup-cakes’, which aren't expensive but still look nice.

3. Photography
If you do go for a professional photographer, ensure youÂ’re certain of the number and type of prints you want and ask yourself how many you really need.
Alternatively, ask a friend who has an interest in photography, but make sure they have a good camera.

4. Honeymoon
Do you really need a villa in the Seychelles with every conceivable luxury? Honeymoons can add thousands to wedding costs. Think of hiring a romantic cottage somewhere in the UK instead. Or take advantage of low-cost flights to a European city and try to negotiate a good hotel deal (especially if you intend to go out of high season).
Alternatively, ask around among friends and family and see if anyone has a second home you could borrow, or at least rent cheaply, in the UK or abroad.

Bargain, bargain, bargain. You can negotiate for everything, from flowers to the band to the venue. Katie says she got a deal on her dress and the bridesmaid dresses by purchasing them from the same shop. Cut back on things that guests won't notice. Carley suggests eliminating a couple of courses from the dinner, limiting the bar by featuring a special cocktail, or only buying flowers that are in season. Don't lose sight of the purpose. The wedding is to celebrate your relationship, so focus on creating a memorable time as opposed to simply a lavish one.

Colorful Outdoor Table Cloth to Promote Your Appetite

A tablecloth dresses up a table for special occasions and also protects a table from spills and messes. Tablecloths are fairly inexpensive and are found in an abundance of colors and designs, yet finding quality cloths that match your decor can be a costly business in terms of both time and money. When choosing table cloth you need consider color, size, fabric, and design.

First, set up a budget.

The amount you are willing to spend will influence the type of tablecloth you will buy. A higher budget will allow you to purchase an elegant, durable linen tablecloth that looks great for a formal lunch or dinner. A medium-budget tablecloth will usually be more usable, and may come in polyester, which allows for easy cleaning and washing while retaining the look of a pure linen. A low-budget or everyday-use tablecloth such as vinyl, or printed or plain damask is good if you don't want the kids to ruin your glass table. Vinyl tablecloths are however easier to break, they are 100% machine made, and any tear in the vinyl material will only get bigger and bigger so watch out! Polyesters on the other hand are gaining in popularity.

Most fabric tablecloths are designed to wash well, except for lace, which may need to be soaked and washed by hand after use. When choosing a fabric tablecloth, select one that matches the style of your kitchen or dining room in both color and style. A formal dining room should have a formal tablecloth. You can choose a delicate white linen look or you might choose dark, rich colors and patterns. In you want to pick one table cloth for your dining table in the garden, then please take care of its colors to be coodinate with the surroundings.

Remember to pay attention to the size of the tablecloth when you buy it. There are four basic tablecloth shapes: Oblong(Rectangle), Oval, Round and Square. There are also various sizes of these shapes and many tablecloths styles to fit them. Round tablecloths are generally either 60 inch (152.4 cm) or 70 inch (177.8 cm) in diameter. They work well on round tables, but will not fit an oval or square table properly.

A nice table cloth will definitely promote your appetite and at most times, they are a very important decoration in your kithen or outdoor dinning table. Be careful when choosing colors.

Modal Towel - Touch Like Your Second Face

Chinese new year is coming and I bet every Chinese would like to collect new and exquisite household items to make your everyday life more comfortable and to start the 2009 with fresh feelings.

Today I wanna talk about the towels, the important items that we would touch everyday. So a great towel may give a great touch feeling and nice mood. Since towel is also the items that we would frequently replaced for the sake of healthy reasons, so new year would be the best time to buy youself a new Modal towel set.

I'm sure many of you have already heard about MODAL, but a surprising number of people have told me that they do not know what it is. Modal® is a bio-based fiber made by spinning reconstituted cellulose from beech trees. It is about 50% more hygroscopic, or water-absorbent, per unit volume than cotton is. It is designed to dye just like cotton, and is color-fast when washed in warm water.

In general, Model is a super soft, light, silky fabric that is made of 100% cellulose, extracted from the beechwood tree. Not only does the fabric have the benefits of being 100% natural, and therefore exempt from objections involving the synthetic textile industry (well, casting deforestation aside, I suppose...but I have witnessed the effects of a nearby DuPont plant while an undergrad at ain't pretty), but the fabirc has the added quality of wicking away sweat from the body - night/cold sweats are a thing of the past. Additionally, it supposedly stands up to repeated harsh washings and dryings better than other fabrics. There's nothing better than the feeling of climbing into bed on a hot summer night into a cool set of silky sheets that comfortably cling to your body...and they're great for the winter too.

Many people would never consider anything but white bath towel. White towels are classic, they remind us of our favorite spa or hotel, they evoke a clean and tranquil feeling. I personally love white bath towels too, since it's not been dyed with color, more natural and clean. So a Model white bath towel set or face towel would be on my purchasing list. I will compare the prices between online C2C site like (This great C2C site only can be used in China, oh oh oh) and the surpemarkets, and I probably would buy towels on line instead of surpermakets. Oh, I'm a crazy online purchaser, a wise and brilliant one anyway.
