    I have been cracking my head on what to get my nephew this Christmas.   He is 17 years old and loves music.  He composes his own songs and as a matter of fact he just uploaded his music to tune core.  I was at Modcloth yesterday and am contemplating getting him a music related gift such as this cute CD player as well as a tuner and alarm clock.  Pretty cool huh?

    This cute Kotori lock from Fuuvi Japan’s Charly is just too adorable.  It protects the bicycle from would be thieves.  The keys look just like leaves, giving a calm look.  A great way to secure the saddle, rear wheel or a children’s bike.  Available at Adeline Adeline.   I am wondering if my spouse would like this.  He is into cycling now and he just got himself a Raleigh.


  4. Snapping the Shot on a Stunning Sunset

    December 16, 2013 by barbara

    There are very few photos more beautiful and more inspirational than a stunning sunset. Even photographers who don’t normally take nature photos will still try their luck at getting at least a few sunset pictures. If you are into photography, you will want to take one too, it is an absolute classic and chances are that. A great photo won’t happen just like that, however. In order to ensure that your photos turn out looking beautiful, you could use a few pointers.

    1. Prepare ahead

    This is oftentimes not the case, even though these photos might look like they are completely spontaneous. In fact, many of them took quite a bit of preparation. This is what you need to do, as well. The first thing to do is to actually find out when the sun will set on that particular day. This shouldn’t be so hard. Then you need to find a great location, arrive about a half hour before the sunset and get your equipment ready.

    2. Include a silhouette

    Images of sunsets look good on their own, but they could be made to look much better. Think about including a silhouette in the foreground as an additional point of interest. It won’t take from the beauty of the sunset, but it will make your photo more interesting.

    3. Don’t use Auto White Balance

    The best thing in this situation is to tinker with the settings on your camera manually. Specific, you will want to turn off Auto White Balance. If it is left on, you risk losing the beautiful golden tones of the sunset.

    Now that you know what to do, all you need is the right equipment like the one you can find at www.yescomusa.com. When you visit http://www.yescomusa.com, you will discover a large range of products, all suited to your needs.

    Bento bags are not only great for food.  They can be used to store yarns, fruits and pretty much just anything.  I love the concept.  They can be used for just about anything. It is so functional and unobtrusive.  All you have to do is tie it close and stuff them into another bag. I love the fabric on these cleverly designed bento bags.  Make a good gift too.  Available at FringeSupplyCo.com.

    I have been invited to a birthday party which will be held in two weeks’ time.   It is the birthday of my friend’s 16 year old son.  Been shopping around for a birthday gift and I was told that he is very into music.  He is a good guitar player so I thought perhaps I should get him this cool-looking Ecko Unlimited Impact Headphone from Iwantoneofthose.com and also a guitar pick holder.

    So me and my girlfriends will be going out this Saturday night for some fun. It has been a while since we went out without the husbands and kids. The husband of one of my girlfriends is a guitar player with a band at a local bar. We will be going to the bar for some music after dinner.  Her husband has an Euphonix MC Control and he always play for us whenever there is a party at their home.    I am so looking forward to our all-girls night out and I’ll be wearing this Gold Lola Chain necklace which I bought from FurorModa.com.
