Eyes are precious and it is important to keep your eyes safe and healthy always. It is important to be 
sure that you will take care of your eyes properly. Stick on glasses more than the contact lenses.

and prefer to wear glasses. Always keep the contact lenses and the box of it bacteria free, and use 
eye-care products such as Vision Direct. Always touch the lenses after washing your hands properly. 
Keep the screen of your handset or laptop minimum 16 inches away from your eyes.  When you are 
working in front of computer screens for long hours, wear the glasses to keep your eyes safe from the

our lifestyle and increase energy levels. Avoid big meals but split it into several small meals. Give 
your body proper nutrition with healthy almonds, healthy smoothies. In this year, avoid fried breakfast 
but start your day with cereals, fruits, and curd. Don’t rush always for the fast foods but depend more 
on the home-cooked meals.

Music is highly motivating for most of the people because it brings out passion from the inner self.

locations in order to experience their passion for music.

There are some locations around the globe which are very famous for their elegant music events. 
Let’s discover here some of the locations and their unique qualities.

Favourite locations for Music

they carry. Thus they are continuously attracting numerous music lovers yearly. If you plan to visit 
them make sure to map out your trip early and reserve tickets. You can use Airbnb for finding cheap 
places to sleep in the area.

Dublin, Ireland: Dublin’s musical heritage is a real point of pride for its residents. You can visit places 
such as the Cobblestone pub, known for its best traditional Irish music sessions, or The Stag’s Head, 
a well-preserved Victorian pub that dates back to 1770, organizing an energetic traditional Irish music 
session each weekend. Other renown sites are the Vicar Street venue, Whelan’s pub, or the Irish 
Rock ’N’ Roll Museum that attract many local music lovers.

Nashville, Tennessee: a landlocked state which is located in southern part of the U.S. This place 
is the home of Country’s Music Hall of Fame and Museum. This adds the importance of this location 
over the minds of music lovers. Dyess, Arkansas, also located in the US, is mainly known for its

listeners' desire to be in a place surrounded only by people who share the same emotions caused 
by music, along with the opportunities available to us for today's technology and globally developed 
transport, has made people travel long distances to get to their favorite musical spots. Music is an 
important component of our lives, and will surely remain to be so for all generations.

5 Tips to running a beauty salon

by , in
Opening up a beauty salon is essentially the same as opening up any other small business. There is a great deal that goes into running your business from finding the perfect location, creating a business and marketing plan that will work, along with finding the right staffing model and supply distributor. There is a great deal of time and attention to detail that goes into opening a business. If you are just starting out and you are either about to open up a salon or you are a new salon owner, this article will highlight some tips to help you in running your salon to the best of your ability. 

1. Create a business plan. The first thing that you need to do before you start your business is to create a plan. Your business plan should outline your business goals, mission, values, and a roadmap that will lead you to success. There are many free templates online if you are having a hard time getting started with this process. Sometimes it is helpful to find a mentor who can give you advice and help you along with the process. If you do not have a mentor or someone who you can look up to, consider looking for a network of hair salon owners in your area and see if you can join their group.

2. Scout out the perfect salon location. Finding the perfect location can be key to having a successful salon. Make sure you look at the area and determine how many hair salons are within the vicinity. If there are too many, you could be competing for the same clients which would be detrimental.

4. Advertise your services. Many new salons tend to take to Groupon or LivingSocial to advertise their services and gain interested clients. The key to this is to offer a deeply discounted rate to get a client in the door. The goal is to have the client continue to come back because they like your services so much.

5. Hire loyal and hardworking staff. Another critical component of owning your own salon is to have loyal and hardworking staff. Your staff should be friendly and love their job. They should love coming to work and their clients will love coming into the salon to see them. This will help you with your business if you have a great staff who are not only fun to be around but also have a steady stream of clients coming in consistently.  

There is a great deal of thought that goes into running a business. With a business plan, great staff, a good location, and a helpful supplies distributor, you should be able to open a salon and be successful without a problem.

City vs Country: Where Do You Want to Live?

by , in

The choice between living in the city and the country is one which has been around for decades 
and decades. For some people, the answer is blindingly obvious, but for others, the decision is a 
lot trickier. Of course, living in the countryside isn’t quite as isolating as it once was with the constant 
improvement of transportation links and improvement of facilities. But it still can’t match the level of 
activity found in the world’s big cities. On the other hand, some people just love the quiet life! If you 
are still finding that your head is in a spin, in this article, we will weigh up the 
pros and cons of city or country living so you are in a position to make a more informed decision. 
Let’s get started!

City Life - Pros

One of the major advantages of living in a city is that you can get pretty much anything you want, 
anytime that you want it. There is such as myriad of food, entertainment and shopping opportunities: 
you name it, you can have it. While the roads are obviously a lot busier, the wide availability of public 
transport options often make having a car redundant (particularly if there is a good metro line). Also, 
there tends to be a wide variety of different working opportunities available so you can get the job that 
suits you

We have spoken about choice a lot so far, and there also tend to be a whole range of options when 
it comes to accommodation including urban lofts, flats, houses, skyscrapers, a cluster house, to 
name a few. There is also always something to do with a wide range of different clubs and activities 
to take part in. And you are also in close proximity to fire departments, police, and hospitals, giving 
you that added sense of safety.

City Life - Cons

Now, onto the disadvantages. Cities tend to be very expensive, and you will find yourself shelling 
out a lot more every month than if you lived in the countryside. Buying a property is a lot more 
expensive, so people tend to find themselves renting which puts them at the mercy of landlords. 
And in the biggest cities in the world, you are likely to find yourself paying through the nose for 
even the lowest standard of accommodation.

Crime rates in the big cities tend to be higher, so you are likely to be a lot more wary when you are 
walking the streets at night. And even though we talked about a lot more jobs being available in the 
cities, the competition for those jobs tends to be a lot higher so it is easy to find yourself embroiled 
in a rat race. Also, you have to contend with things like the pollution, traffic and sense of 

Country Life - Pros

Now, let’s turn our attention to country living to look closer at the positives of this way of life. First 
and foremost, you have the scenery to enjoy and plenty of opportunities for strolling around in air 
which feels a lot fresher than in the big cities. Secondly, you can enjoy plenty of peace and quiet 
and a generally less stressful way of life. Look up to the sky, and you are even likely to see stars!

Crime rates tend to be significantly lower than in the city, particularly the rates of serious crime so 
you are likely to feel a lot safer when you make the countryside your home. As well as this, there 
also tends to be a greater sense of community, which is something that is much more difficult to 
find in the big cities. So, if you like the idea of everyone knowing your name, this may well be the 
option for you!

Country Life - Cons

While we may have painted quite a rosy picture of country living in the last paragraph, it obviously 
comes with its fair share of negatives as well. You have a lot less access to the services that you need 
and public transport tends to be much more infrequent. Therefore, you are likely to have to get used 
to the shops in your local area or else drive to get back into civilisation! Unlike the myriad of clubs and 
entertainment options you find in the city, your choices are bound to be much more limited out in the 

We talked about the sense of community that you get from life in the countryside, but this can easily 
end up working against you as well. You are likely to find that everyone knows your business, and one 
wrong move could put you in the bad books of the entire community. Technology also tends to be a lot 
trickier to get working, so you may well find that you struggle to get phone reception and your WiFi 
speed could well be non-existent. This could end up being particularly problematic if you work as a 
freelancer or run your own business that relies on quick access to the internet.      

The Final Choice is Yours

So, hopefully, you have read through this guide and one of the options stands out above the other 
when you are choosing whether the city or the country is right for you. Ultimately, it all depends on 
your priorities and what you are looking for in your life. And, you can also find places which provide 
a good compromise. So, a place in the suburbs may well provide you with good access to the city as 
well as the feeling of living out in the countryside.

It is difficult to really discount either one of the options unless you have experienced both. There are 
plenty of city dwellers out there who thought they would despise a life in the countryside only to be 
proven wrong, and vice-versa. Whichever one you choose, you should embrace the new life in front 
of you as much as possible as there are plenty of positives either way.  

It's a good deal only if you need it - Rules about renting

by , in

When you want to rent, it is very important to keep in mind some key #RentingRules and to inform yourself about the rights and obligations that you have. When you go to see the house for the first time, try to have a personal and relaxed conversation with the person presenting the house. Be prepared to ask some key questions about the home you see.

Clarity is power

First of all, ask how much the rent costs and when and how should it be paid? It is a trivial information, but it's necessary to avoid misunderstandings later. Also, clarify what is the duration of the rental contract and what will happen at the end of the rental period.

Know your obligations

The main responsibility you have as a tenant is to pay rent on time as well as to pay the utility bills. You have to keep the house safe, lock the doors, start the alarm, clean it and not cause damage to the home. In order to ensure the fulfillment of these obligations, a certain amount is usually required as a guarantee. There are also services such as HomeLet which provide cover for you if you accidentally damage your landlord's property.

Stay safe

When you go about analyzing the apartment or house, it's important to be relaxed and polite, but also cautious. Find out what is the average rental price in the area. If someone proposes to rent a luxury home at a low price, you should do extra checks, because there were situations in the past when someone with bad intentions asked the tenant to pay the advance deposit for the apartment and, after receiving the advance, they disappeared. The real homeowner usually doesn't know anything about the alleged rented house for which the guarantee is paid in such circumstances. Before renting a home, you should ask the landlord to show the following documents: the act attesting ownership of the home and the identity document.

If the house is gas-fired, an annual gas safety check is required, thus a copy of the certificate must be made available to the tenants upon asking.

Sign a contract

The rental agreement concluded in written form is indispensable. In most cases, landlords and real estate agencies have standard contracts that you should carefully read before signing.

As a rule, owners are responsible for their own property and some equipment repairs. It is helpful to agree from the beginning on how long will it take for your owner to start and complete repairs if you report defects. Although not mandatory, an inventory can be useful for both parties to avoid additional disputes over furniture and other items in the home.

Know your rights

Tenants have not only obligations but also rights. Be conscientious that you have the right to live in a rented home as in your home and the owner doesn't have the right to come whenever he pleases. Prior to the visit, he must notify the tenant and establish the right time for the visit.

The owner cannot increase the rental price without prior notice. The tenant must be given a minimum period of one month to decide whether he wants to remain and to agree to pay more.

Collaboration renting

Above all, you have to have a cordial relationship with the owner who rents you the apartment. If both parties are trustworthy and the collaboration is amicable, you can always find a correct solution to any situation that occurs along the way. Therefore, when looking for an apartment for rent, you should keep in mind that you rent not only an apartment but also a collaboration with another person. You should always put your safety and peace of mind first.

The future is now – hot the iPhone changed the world

by , in

More than 10 years after the first Apple mobile device has been released, a lot has changed in the way 
we use our phones. We could rightfully say the iPhone has revolutionized the way we access the  
internet and the way we interact with each other. It is documented that internet browsing is now made 
more on mobile devices than on desktop ones, with an increase from 5% since the launch of the 
iPhone in 2010 to more than 51% in 2017.

You can now use your phone not only for talking but also for high-quality pictures, for satellite 
navigation, for listening to quality music, for seeing your loved ones in real time, you can even pay 
using your iPhone, use it as a television, a radio or recording device, health device and much more.

The multitude of apps that is available has made life easier for millions of users. If you ask the majority 
of smartphone users today, they will say that their smartphone is indispensable and has become an 
every day carry item. Buying an iPhone case together with a purchased iPhone has become a must 
due to this very reason, and today you are more likely to care if you lose your house keys than if you 
lose your smartphone.

Smartphones have transformed also the way businesses work and created new business models. 
The central role smartphones play in business is determined by their high processing power, higher 
than the older computers, and by the multitude of built-in sensors and internet connectivity that offer 
companies the possibility to have almost permanent access to customers on a device that they 
always carry with them.

This trend shows no sign of slowing down, however, and the smartphone industry has grown year 
by year. Looking back, one could enthusiastically state that if in just 10 years there has been so 
much progress made, then what do next ten years have in store for us?
