Choosing a rug to match your floor type

Hey Cats,

One of the biggest differences you can make to a room is the flooring that you choose to help compliment the overall design. There is nothing worse than an ugly carpet bringing down an otherwise beautiful room and I love using rugs to change up the style and feel of my home. They are a great way to get a versatile look and the best thing is they can easily be changed or swapped around to another room when you want to change things up. I have a lovely purple rug that I have had for some time now and it really brings a pop of colour to the living room. 

Picking the right rug for you is important you have lots of factors to take into consideration like will it match your colour scheme and what size you may need but I have the perfect guide for you here. 


River Island Plus size Wish List

Hey Cats

It's been a minute since I have done a wishlist and let me tell you it isn't because
there haven't been beautiful clothes about I have just been so broke it isn't even
funny but everyone window shops right. Recently I was browsing River island I
love looking at all the different styles they have on offer I find them to have a very
chic touch that other high street retailers just don't.

When River Island Plus first launched I was so excited and I am glad it's still going
strong. Do they need more lines and to mirror their sizing from the straight sizes into
the plus? Sure as hell they do but they still have some outstanding prices available.

We are in the age if the boss grrrl and the two suits above slayed it for me if I worked
in an office I would wear the hell out of both of them. The striped beauty gives me
beetlejuice vibes fat babes totally should wear stripes. I feel mustard so hard I rock
a mustard coat daily so this stunning yellow pant suit just screamed out to me!
Wearing a beautifully coordinated piece can give you some major confidence
I'm thinking board meeting or business lunch. I would rock them with the feel good
Top as a pop of white would really allow those colours to do the work. The black dress
just has such a stunning shape and gives me morticia Addams on a summer day vibes.

No good outfit is complete without shoes and I'm not saying these shoes particularly
want to be worn with the suits but these chunky pink shoes would look major cute

with ripped skinny jeans the feel good too and one of these biker jackets. I live for
biker jackets and these two need to get into my collection right now. I love the shape
of these killer heels sheer class.

5 reasons to encouge your single mom to date online

Hey cats,

We all have a special parent, uncle or even grandparent in our family who puts everyone first
in their life and devotes their time to anyone else. They gave up on the dating game a long
time ago not because they don't like dating but just because they think there's nobody out
there for them. Don't get me wrong we all have that lone wolf who just likes to be alone and
this one isn't for them some people genuinely love their own company so respect their choices
but if you have that older loved one who wants to get back in the dating game but just doesn't
think it's going to be successful or meet anyone then an online dating site could be for them!

1. You can help them

Sometimes writing your own dating profile can be hard because you can't see all your best
assets. You can help them set up a profile and show them the ropes. It can be a lot of fun
helping someone and dating online is so much more accessible being able to use your phone
as an option as well as computers has really made the online world easier to step into for
newbies. Why not have a fun photo shoot with your loved one so they have a fabulous recent
photo to share with potential future dates and the chance to feel amazing about themselves.

2. Localised dating

A lot of dating sites are now more localised so you may even find out that the milkman aunt
Enid has been chatting to all this time is actually single too finding people you already know
are online looking for the same thing may make your family look at them in a new light. Also
finding more people who are in the same area can only ever be a good thing so even if a date doesn't work romantically they make a new friend that they can hang out with for future meals
out or dance nights.

3. Helps improve their dating game

If the response you get when you try to encourage them to get online is skeptical tell them to
look at it as practice for real dates. Chatting to new people online can really help grow
confidence not only from the new attention but polishing up those flirting skills means that they can put them to use with people face to face and confidence is the most alluring weapon any
dater can have.

4. Spending time with people outside family or work is important!

Whether it's your work friend or your grandad it's important for them to get social time outside
of their usual spaces. Just seeing family or work can mean they almost lose themselves a
little we should always strive to meet new people, learn new things and challenges ourselves
so we are constantly growing as people and hanging out with a diverse range of people is
fantastic for this. Dating online gives people a chance to talk to a whole range of people they
may not meet anywhere else just because your paths haven't crossed yet doesn't mean they shouldn't now. Meeting a new person may help them come to life all over again and everyone deserves happiness.

5. Get to do fun things!

Everyone needs an active social life to an extent to keep the spice of life going. By making
new friends or love interests online they can experience lots of new things or introduce their
new friend to the things they love to do from going dancing to even taking an adventure holiday
they always wanted to try. Just because someone is entering older dating doesn't mean it
needs to be all knitting circles and book clubs they could take up a new hobby like dance
classes with a new date or dine out with a new gent. Everyone loves being wooed and
awakening those butterflies within keeps everyone young at heart.

Ultimately all we want for the ones we love is happiness and encouraging them to try a
new experience like dating online could really get them the love you know they deserve
or even make new companions to make memories with! Try a site like older-dating.com
and see how they get on.

I helped an older lady at work to get online and try the dating scene and she hasn't looked
back yet. She has been on lots of fun dates which gave her a chance to dress up go do
something fun and meet new people. She hasn't met the one yet but is having so much fun
and making lots of new friends in the process. In fact her social life is better than mine! I
love hearing what she has been up to and more than anything she is full of excitement and

Have you encouraged an older person in your life to try new things? How did it go?

Is Your Dream Career Actually Within Reach?

We all have a dream career, something that we wish we could do and get paid for.
This might be singing, becoming a world-class athlete or perhaps being a movie
star. Some of these careers can seem like pipe dreams, but they are actually not
as out of reach as they first seem. There are a few questions you need to ask
yourself before we get into this. Answer them honestly, and you will know whether
you really have what it takes to make your dream career a reality.

You will want to hear about, a london seo expert success story you’ll never believe
he reached his dream, and can help you promote your Seo too.

First, are you talented? If you are talented, someone unrelated to you will have
praised your abilities. This is all the evidence you need to pursue your dream
career and start thinking of a hobby as a real-life choice.

Second, are you determined? You will need to be to succeed here because you
are going to face a lot of competition on your way to the top.

Lastly, you need to ask yourself what you are willing to take? Rejection is the
biggest roadblock on your route to your dream career. A lot of people can’t handle
the idea of getting rejected multiple times, and it is for this reason that their dream
career never has a chance of becoming a reality.

If you answered these three questions correctly, let’s move on and figure out how
you can make it happen.

Make Contacts

It IS all about who you know in the business world, and this is true in any industry.
It doesn’t matter whether you want to become the next movie star or the next great
marine biologist. You have to know the right people because they are going to help
you find the opportunities that you need to succeed.

These days, of course, it’s easy to network with social websites like Linkedin.
Here, you will be able to connect with the right people and hopefully make the
relationships you need to rise to the top. Don’t be afraid to add or seek people
out either because in the modern age no one else is reluctant to ask for a helping hand.

Market Yourself

No one else is going to do it for you so make sure that you are ready to market and
promote yourself. You should have your own website, a blog and you should be using
your social media to promote your personal brand. You may even want to sell products.
For instance, you might have your heart set on being a famous singer. If that’s the case,
you need to produce and distribute a CD using a service like Nationwide Disc. You don’t
have to be successful straight away, but you do have to show that you have at least some
support behind you when you’re trying to win over someone to represent you.

Put Yourself Out There

Finally, you can’t be afraid of the crowds. You need to be ready to take anything
they can throw at you. You might have been on Youtube lately and laughed at
the people who have no charisma and no ability to grasp an audience. But they
are a darn sight closer to achieving their goal of making their career dreams
come true than you are.
