Investing Where It Counts

juiceI have been lucky enough to have a great job that let’s me spend money on my hobbies. These hobbies have grown into full collections that are actually worth money. So it’s actually a good investment. However, I am also investing in something that’s far more important – my body.

Over the 43 years of my life, I’ve been on a variety of diets. As a child I paid no attention whatsoever to my meals. I ate a lot of chips and junk food. However, as I get older it becomes more apparent that I can’t continue such lifestyles. That’s why, over the past 2 years, I’ve been investing in healthy foods.

This means, that gone are the days of eating chips for breakfast. Instead, i’m increasing the amount of vegetables and fruits in my diet. And one of the best ways to do this has been through juicing.

There are a lot of people talking about juicing nowadays. I heard about it 4 years ago from a buddy of mine who came to work everyday with a giant mixing cup on his desk. When I asked about it, he informed me of his decision to start eating healthy. I decided to do some research on it and as I learned more, I became increasingly interested in doing it myself.

I ended up buying myself a Vitamix blender. It’s one of the best investments I’ve ever made. I use it every day several times a day to make meals and snacks for myself.

If you’re looking for a good quick place to learn about juicing and all it’s benefits you can check out my recommended best juicing guide. The guy that runs this site seems to really know what he’s talking about. I’ve learned a lot of helpful tips that I’ve never known before.

Juicing Recipes That I Enjoy

If i’m looking for a powerful “pick-me-up” for the day, a good kale shake will do the trick. This consists of kale, green grapes, cucumber, and golden delicious apples. This is one of my favorites, especially during the morning.

For a good vitamin boost, I’ll mix apples, pears, and cherries. This is one that I’ll mix up after lunch. It’s got a sweet flavor to it and easily takes care of my sweet tooth :).

Anyway, that’s all I have for now guys. Make sure that you take care of your bodies!

How To Spot a Fake Watch

fake watchWatch collecting can be a very costly hobby. It’s all about finding authentic quality items to add to your collection. That being said, if you’re a watch collector then you probably already know that their are a lot of fake watches on the market. But how is a collector to know which watches are real and which ones are counterfeit. We’ll cover that and more in today’s article.

It’s easy to fall into the trap of a good deal. If you run across an designer watch and the person selling it is giving you an amazing deal, you may want to take a good look before making your purchase.

It is important to get to know the different watch brands before you buy them. A good watch collector will study the brands that they like and do their due diligence.  Here are the things that you need to look for:

1. Weight – A fake watch is usually made with cheap material that is lighter than their actual counterparts. Real luxury watches are generally heavier and feel more dense.

2. Material. The color of the fake watches are typically a bit off. The more you get into the hobby, the more these things become apparent. You’ll need to look at the materials and the finishing closely before making your final purchase.

3. Engravings. Counterfeit products make an effort to copy the engravings on the real watches. The real watches have sharper and clearer engravings then the fake ones. Make sure to study what the engravings look like on the real watch brands.

4. Sound and Movement. These two things are very important to understand. Real luxury watches are built with quality in mind. For this reason, we observe better movement and better sound on them. Fake watches will have a hard time replicating this.

5. Paperwork. If you want to guarantee authenticity, then you’ll want to see the paperwork on the watch. This will let you know for a fact if you’re dealing with the real deal or if you’re dealing with a fake.

You should also try to avoid any deals that seem rushed, cheap, and lack that paperwork. If a deal seems too good to be true, then it usually is.

 

Replica Dresses Can Save A Ton Of Money

dresses and consignmentMany women a very familiar with brand name dresses. For these people, looking sharp and being in style is a top priority. But what if you don’t have the budget to satisfy such wants? For people in this position, buying a replica dress may be an option to consider.

If you’re in the market for a replica dress, there are several things that you should think about. These include the quality, the comfort level, and the affordability.

Quality of the Dress

For many people the quality of the dress is the most important aspect. If you’re looking to buy a wedding dress, then this is probably high on your list as well. Real brands are typically very high quality. If you’re going for an off brand, you’ll still want to have quality in your dress as you walk down the aisle. It would be a nightmare if your dress were to fall apart during your most important event. This is why focusing on quality should never be neglected.

Comfort of the Dress

Even if a dress looks great on the outside, you can never ignore how it feels on the inside. If you’re so focused on looks alone, you may end up with a dress that you absolutely can’t stand the moment that you put it on. Some dresses can be surprisingly itchy once you try it out. This is one reason that you should also try each and every dress on before you buy it.

Other comfort issues to keep in mind is the fit of a dress. A poorly fit dress that is too tight could really show off curves that you don’t want people to see. A dress that is too big could be a recipe for disaster as well since the dress could fall off.

Affordability

You can’t talk about any purchases without considering the price. When it comes to dresses, some of them could be very expensive. A dress may look nice and fit well, but it may not fit your budget. You have to always live within your means and if you can’t afford something, you may just have to keep on looking. Don’t be discouraged though because there are always many options and a nice dress that can fit your budget is sure to be around the corner.
