Planning A Clothing Swap!

Shopping for new clothes can be expensive.  And, unfortunately, many people do not have the budget for such spending.  With disposable income decreasing, and fashion demands rising, how can you keep up?  Consider a clothing swap.  This swap can benefit you and your friends.  It is simple and fun.


The Basics


A good clothing swap is well planned and organized.  Begin by creating a list of guests to attend.  Once you have a guest list, determine a time and location for the clothing swap.  Include all of this information on an invite.  This invite can be sent in the mail or digitally.  Use an evite or a facebook invite to inform your friends.  Create an open invitation with these tools.  This will help you attract more guests. 


Clothing Requirements


Part of the invitation needs to specify requirements for the specific clothing required.  Most clothing swaps include all types of clothing – even shirts that are funny.  However, you do not want clothes that are in poor condition.  These clothes don’t have to be perfect.  However, they need to be good enough to wear.  Tell people to clean out their closets.  Bring all of the clothes in good condition for swapping.   They can toss those that aren’t in good shape and trade the ones that are. 


Trading Specifications


Finally, make sure to specify who can trade.  Are clothes to trade a requirement to attend?  If this swap is simply an effort to get rid of clothing, then keeping the guest list open will be good.  However, if you want a lot of clothes for trading, you should require a few pieces of clothes to enter the party.  Also, make sure that you determine how the trading will work.  Consider a white elephant approach.  Or, give people priority numbers based on the amount of clothes they brought.  Those will the lowest numbers can trade first.  In addition, determine if you are going to set a limit on pieces exchanged.  For example, if someone only brings one item of clothing, will they be allowed to take home four pieces? 


All of these rules are up to you.  And at the end of the day, they will help you swap run smoothly.


Hair Loss Treatments That Work

Many Americans suffer from hair loss. It is just part of life and something that we all have to deal with us to get older. Some of us will lose hair much faster than others because of our genetics or for the simple fact that we do not take care of ourselves the way we should. There are many factors that come into play when you are not eating right or you might be under a heavy level of stress that can affect hair loss. There are special clinics all over the United States that are there to help you with your hair loss issues.

Hair Loss Clinics

Clive Clinics are one of the best places you can go for hair loss treatments. These trained professionals are there to help you and get your hair stimulated so that you will start having hair growth. Always be sure that you visit the doctor with the claim that it hair and have an open mind and also be ready to tell the doctor all of the details about what you eat so that the doctor will be able to figure out what is going on and why your hair loss has brought you to the clinic.

A Good Conditioner

When you are brought up as a child you often times were probably told to make sure you shampoo and condition your hair, well that was a very good bit of advice. You always need to be sure that you are washing your hair with a quality product so that you are getting all of the nutrients you need in order to have healthy hair. When you don’t have these minerals and nutrients in your hair that starts to affect the quality of your hair and sometimes you can see a huge decline. You need to be sure that you find a nice shampoo and conditioner. Reading reviews online is a great way to figure out which conditioner is the best for your hair. When you have found a product you like then you need to pay close attention to the results of your hair. If you hair seems to improve then stick with the product. However if you see no results then you need to move on to the next shampoo and conditioner.

Within 3 to 6 months you should see a major improvement in your hair.

Don’t Program Your Life Around the TV

What time is it? Holy cow I’ve got to get home! My show is starting any minute! Oh, look at the traffic; now I’ll never make it. I hate it when I miss the beginning. Now you never have to say that again.

God Love Double Standards

So it’s not okay to program your life around your television but it’s OK to program your television so that it fits in with your life; I like that. It works for me. And now thanks to the DISH Hopper DVR, you don’t even have to let your TV determine which room you watch your movies in; when/where you pause and when/where you start; or miss a single moment of your favorite shows ever again.

Not Just Your Favorite Series But Movies As Well

Not only do you never have to miss another show but you can save crazy amounts of money watching movies at home rather than going to the theater and paying a bundle. Some people still insist on recording shows on their VCR’s; yes it’s true, VCR’s did not go out with the dinosaurs. DVR is so much better. Time to get in tune with the times cave people. Put down the charcoal and stop drawing stick figures on the walls of your ‘house’. You don’t even have to use your Flintstone mobile to start shopping for deals on pay TV and DVR’s.

What I was going to say is that you just need to open your laptop but chances are you don’t have one of those either.

Daytona Beach Bike Week

I don’t live in Daytona Beach but I do remember last year’s Harley festival in my city. It had barely begun when news flew through the biking community that a longtime biker had been struck and killed, through no fault of his own, while riding through downtown with a group of fellow bikers. Happy bike week.

Good Times That Can Lead To Bad Things

By all means, please do enjoy Daytona Bike Week to its fullest; it is an exciting time for friends, making new friends, bikes and beer. Speaking of beer—don’t be a bonehead biker—drive responsibly. Aside from driving sober, make sure that you have stellar motorcycle insurance and don’t be afraid—should the unthinkable happen—to get yourself a rockin’ motorcycle accident lawyer.

Now That That’s Out Of The Way… Time To Celebrate!

Aah the pleasures of bikers, beer and basking in the sun. Daytona Beach Bike Week has got to be one of the best motorcycle festivals on the continent. Just the pictures of past Daytona bike weeks alone was enough to start me thinking about how I want to get my Harleys all the way down to Florida without having to ride; I know, I’m a puppy. But I’d rather the bike break down once I get there than on my way there. Bikes break down and accidents happen; which is a reason that I’m a member of the Harley Owners Group.

One would think that during bike week people in the area would make a special effort to watch out for motorcycles. Silly rabbit!
