This Diwali, flaunt your individualistic style

This Diwali, flaunt your individualistic style to make your home your haven. Team IAnD speaks to select design doyens to tell you how…

Are you deluged with ideas for the festive season; but most seem far-fetched or a little cumbersome to accomplish?! Well, here is a handy round-up of absolutely do-able stuff that will complement your personal aesthetics as well as your pocket!

 

Team IAnD sought the counsel of five designers, who’ve always exhibited an unrestrained style in all they do. Here are their expert inputs for you:

Shabnam Gupta of The Orangelane (known for turning quirk to flamboyance) says: A great way to enhance your abode this festive season is to start with the entryway. Adorning your door with some antique lamp or fun lampshade will instantly brighten up your space. Placing potted ferns, flowers and potpourri can also make a difference; or just adorn a pretty vase complementing it with aromatic candles.

Speaking of candles, designers Raseel Gujral of Casa Pop (known for her uninhibited décor style) and Prashant Chauhan of Zero9 (known for his classic sensitivity in stylising spaces) also recommend the inclusion of lots of candles around the home; some creatively carved to add intrigue and a touch of glamour!

Looking around your home, says Shabnam, rearrange the furniture, if you can. This itself will bring about a sea-change. Dig into stuff packed away and consider hanging the old kilim on the wall – simple; yet totally dramatic – this will add an inviting appeal to your living room or even bedroom.

Or if rearranging is not the option for you, says Nina Puri of Sanjay Puri Architects (known for her chic, understated balance in interiors), try draping an old dupatta or stole on one end of the sofa or even the bed; gives the room a new appeal. You can also throw in some colourful covers on your cushions and add to their numbers to create an inviting warmth in the interior; or even add in lots of indoor plants, pipes in Prashant Chauhan.

Accessorising is an all-important part of your décor and especially with the festive fervour, designer Priyanka P of PS Design (known for her remarkable touch of glamour to everyday settings), suggests that you go seasonal by taking a large urli and filling it with water and marigolds or even rose petals. Placed at the entrance, this is the warmest welcome you could essay for your guests. Also, she continues, try framing an old picture – maybe from your travels – in a large format, and use it add to a dramatic effect to the room.

Group accessories in an eclectic way, suggests Nina Puri; they can be combined to effect a narrative and create a pocket of interest in your décor.

Above all, preserve your individuality, when you are exploring latest trends and picking new designs to decorate your interiors, advises Raseel Gujral. Opt to uplift the mood of your interiors by making the space more lived in and young, rather than overstatedly decorated with too many loud pieces. Add life and vigour to your space with casually strewn cushions, creatively carved candles, decorative pieces drenched in pastels and bright colours and a lot of florals, she continues.  This Diwali, flaunt your individualistic style

Identify designs that allow you to channel your energy towards happiness. The simplicity of a breathable space is also often the pathway to establish peace in your home décor. Avoid adding too much noise to open spaces by incorporating too many elements to it. Choose to accentuate the minimalist taste with standout sculptures, intricately designed chandeliers and trunks, elegant jewellery boxes, glass crafts and lamps, concludes Raseel.

Our special thank-you to designer Nina Puri for having tailored this bespoke idea – exclusively for you – the readers of India Art n Design (dot) com.

Here’s the simply beautiful DIY that can uplift and add a spark to any décor: Take some differently sized glasses – any glasses – and turn them upside down. Below the glasses, feel free to add some bits of coloured paper, rose petals, confetti, coloured baubles…Now place your T-lights on

Ousted Catalan president, 4 others in custody in Brussels

Ousted Catalan president, 4 others in custody in Brussels

Former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont makes a statement in the form of a video calling for the release of “the legitimate government of Catalonia,” after a Spanish judge ordered nine Catalan secessionist leader to be held in custody pending a potential trial over the region’s independence push , in Brussels, Belgium, November 2, 2017.

BRUSSELS – Brussels prosecutors said Sunday that ousted Catalan president Carles Puigdemont and four ex-regional ministers were taken into custody to start the process of their possible extradition to Spain.

The five presented themselves to the federal police at around 9 a.m. (3 a.m. ET), Brussels prosecutor’s office spokesman Gilles Dejemeppe. He said that they have not been arrested and that Puigdemont and the four members of his disbanded Cabinet will be heard by an investigative judge later in the day.

The Belgian judge will have to decide within 24 hours of what separatist politicians wanted in Spain on suspicion of independence for the northeastern Catalonia in violation of Spain’s Constitution.

Dejemeppe said the judge’s options range from “refusal to execute the European arrest, arresting the people involved, releasing them on conditions or under bail.” He said if they are arrested then they will be sent to jail as the extradition process continues. Dejemeppe said that the whole process from arrest to extradition, could take more than 60 days.

That delay could give Puigdemont time to participate, albeit from afar and in largely a symbolic capacity, in the regional snap election called by Spain’s government for Catalonia on Dec. 21.

 

A senior official of Puigdemont’s party, the center-right Democratic Party of Catalonia, said on Sunday that the party wanted Puigdemont to repeat as its candidate. Spanish government spokesman Inigo Mendez de Vigo has said that any politician can run in the election unless he has been convicted of a crime.

Puigdemont and the four ex-ministers fled to Belgium as part of an extraordinary crackdown to the region’s illegal secession claim.

A Spanish National Court judge issued a suspicion of five crimes, including rebellion, sedition and embezzlement, on Friday, a day after the same judge sent another former Catalan Cabinet members to jail without bail while her investigation continues. A ninth spent a night in jail and was freed after posting bail.

Puigdemont wrote in Dutch in his Twitter account on Saturday that he was “prepared to fully cooperate with Belgian justice following the European arrest warrant issued by Spain.”

Puigdemont’s lawyer in Brussels has already said that his client plans to fight extradition to Spain without requesting political asylum.

Political forces in Catalonia are hurryly jockeying for position to start a campaign that promises to be as bitter as it is decisive to Spain’s worst institutional crisis in nearly four decades.

Good-Looking Male Organ Study: Health Matters Most

Good-Looking Male Organ Study: Health Matters Most

In July of 2015, headlines abounded concerning a study that, according to some writers, answers the question of what a “good-looking male organ” looks like. The notion that there is an ideal male apperance is problematic for a number of reasons, including the fact that it objectifies men and causes undue distress for them. Sensual health can suffer from anxieties around the manhood, and it’s important for men to address those issues.
Still, there are some interesting results from the study in question, and they are worth noting. Good-Looking Male Organ Study: Health Matters Most

Some facts

The study consisted of only 105 women between the ages of 16 and 45. The women’s review of 20 male organs, and researchers.

One-hundred-five is a small sample size, so this study can hardly be said to offer anything conclusive in the way of “what women find attractive.” However, the results do make a bit of sense.

The point of the study was to gather some evidence concerning whether one’s assessment of whether a man’s body was washed by the shape of the meatus, the opening of the urethra. Ten of the male organs photographed had received surgery to reposition the meatus, which was congenitally mal-positioned behind the manhood head. The surgically repositioned meatuses were shaped differently than the others.

Results

Study after study finds that the women are still the size, but still do not get it. For them, it’s often a bit of an obsession and a significant source of distress. This study found male organ length to rank male organs.

The following ranking resulted from the study:

1) General cosmetic appearance

2) Appearance of groy hair

3) Girth / appearance of skin (tied)

4) Shape of male organ head

5) Length

6) Appearance of sack

7) Shape and position of meatus

The first factor, “general cosmetic apperance,” is too vague to really say much about, but it’s not that tidiness and skin condition are list-toppers, as much as or more so than any anatomical feature. Though the study certainly has its limits, it does reinforce the importance of cleanliness and attention to detail, which are things any man can work on (unlike the size and shape).

Finally, men who receive corrective surgery on the meatus need not feel self-conscious about how their members look, the study suggests. And that makes sense – a well-kept male organ is a beautiful thing, squinty meatus or not. Good-Looking Male Organ Study: Health Matters Most

What guys can do

While getting all hung up on how the male organ is not healthy, there is nothing wrong with it. Trimming the hair is totally a matter of personal preference, but sweat-prone guys benefit from taming the shrub, keeping the area cooler and preventing bacteria buildup that can lead to odors. Keeping the hair tidy can also cut down on instances of jock itch, a nasty fungal infection that causes an itchy rash in the region.

Another crucial factor ought to pay attention to is skin condition. Smooth, vibrant skin is delightful to the eye and to the touch. More importantly, healthy skin is less prone to infection, as cracks in dry skin can provide harboring grounds for viruses, fungi and bacteria.

Keeping the skin in peak condition is made possible by using a male health crème organ (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil). Natural moisturizers like Shea butter and vitamin E join forces to hydrate the skin, getting rid of any dryness or flakiness that may be affecting the manhood. Using a lotion made specifically for the male organ will ensure that the men’s attention to detail is likely to be noticed and appreciated by his lover.

This 12 Volt LED is the Only Light Idea You Need

 

Everyone can use a little more light. Sitting in the dark all day makes people feel depressed, and not all in your head.

There is a proven link between darkness and depression.

Feel like a wall that closes? Get some lights! This is very easy.

Besides alleviating depression, a well-lit house just looks more inviting. There was something friendly about the glittering light that read, “Come on in, we’re glad to meet you!”

Is not that what we all want from our homes? A place that invites shelters from the world’s ills.

A place that welcomes you with open arms, no matter what matters are provided that day.

Well, it turns out this is all easily accomplished with a little work and some LED lights. Anyone can have a dimly lit house without breaking the bank.

We’re breaking down exactly how to brighten up your living space, and why this 12-volt LED light is exactly what you want it to be.

LEDs in the Kitchen
The LED light has a low intensity, meaning it will not blind you from close range. They are also quite compact, which makes the kitchen lighting perfect.

Consider installing an LED light under your cabinet to provide a desk lamp. Believe us, cutting vegetables with good lighting makes the world different.

Strip lights are easy to install, and are actually quite striking and conspicuous.

Stick light strips wherever you want, then plug the power supply into the wall. There is no cable work to do, and really the whole process takes a few minutes.

People without stove lights can also find LED tap lights that are useful for cooking. The lamp is durable enough to withstand heat and grease, making it ideal to illuminate your stove.

Drawer and cabinet
Ok, so this room will not light up your house, but everyone cursing the lack of light in the back of their closets.

LED strip lights work well in closets and drawers. Both spaces are small enough so that the ambient lighting of your home does not penetrate its cracks and crannies.

The installation is just like your kitchen lamp, only you might want a bit smaller strip (at least for drawers).

The best part is not to worry your lights heat up your closet or drawer if you forget to turn it off. LEDs produce hardly heat.

Get Festive
Yes, the holiday season is over, but that does not mean you can not wait for next year.

One great thing about LED lights is that they come in almost any color you can imagine.

You probably will not use colored lights throughout the year (or maybe you’ll have a dance, no judgment here), but at Christmas colored LEDs can make your house magical.

Pointing out the red and green standalone lights on your trees creates a truly remarkable background.

LED lights are perfect for any scenario. They can prevent depression, brighten the house, and work in almost any situation.

Hopefully, you find some ideas of this project interesting. Never tap the power of efficient lighting.

Gym Wear: 5 Things Everyone Needs to Need

You may not think too much about what you wear to the gym. This may be one of those old college shirts or bands that fill your drawer, and a pair of sweaty pants or waist shorts.

Even if you carefully choose the clothes you will wear for work or dating, this is the gym we are talking about. Who cares what you wear?

It turns out you have to care. Here’s why – and how to choose clothes that will benefit you as you exercise.

5 Ways To Work in Style
1. Get a Good Fit When Getting Fit

Do not choose loose clothing to work on. They will not make your body look bigger. Sloppy box shirts and slacks will just keep you in the gym.

In addition to possibly getting stuck or caught on the machine, too large a clothing will not let you see how your body is moving. This means it will be more difficult to monitor your form.

The shirt for exercise should be no more than two to three inches of excess fabric at the waist; select shorts that are hit about two inches above the knee. Check out some great options from Generation Iron.

2. Choose the Right Fabric

Many men release their old shirts, which have holes under the sleeves or are too worn for everyday wear, to the training drawer. Experts say it’s a mistake. Cotton t-shirts will absorb your sweat, making it feel heavy and uncomfortable to wear.

Special performance performance is a better choice. Woven fabrics will not make you feel wet, sweaty, and sweaty. You also will not let puddles fall on the bench after you’ve finished pressing – your colleagues will love.

3. Choose Clothes Over the Hole

We understand; You have worked hard for those pecs and lats, and you certainly want to show it to them. Any kind of fishnet jacket or tank top that barely exist, however, will mark you as “the guy.” Which man? One of the women rolled their eyes.

These days, the gym is more social than ever. You can meet your boss, potential client, or the woman you watch at Tinder. So choose a low-key fashion, not flashy ,.

4. Right Footwear

It should go without saying that you have to wear the right athletic shoes, but next time you enter the gym, look down. You may be surprised by the number of people you see in Vibram, sandals, even boots and flip-flops!

If you are not primarily running or cycling, choose a pair of comfortable and supportive cross-trainers.

5. Choose complementary outfits

Unless you always bathe in the gym, you should invest in a special jacket or coat to throw while you are away. Why?

Placing your nice woolen fur coat over your sweaty gym clothes will eventually lead to a plain pea coat smelling like you do a sprint of wind in it. In Georgia. In August.

Buy a performance jacket that is warm enough to prevent cold when you leave the gym. Bonus – You’ll have something for hiking and outdoor exercise as well.

Itchy members may be due to compression shorts

Itchy members may be due to compression shorts

There is a male organ health problem with imports far greater than the itchy members, but few are often repeated or everyone can identify them. Whether it’s just the initial need to scratch or urgency chronic itch members, all men can sympathize with the desire to be itchy in the middle of the body. That desire is why knowing what can cause itching is important. Men who wear compression shorts regularly should be aware that underwear may be the cause.
About compression shorts

Itchy members may be due to compression shorts

Compression shorts evolved from medical compression clothing. This outfit is meant to provide a very comfortable fit for support and reasoning of blood circulation. Finally, a person realizes that compression shorts may be beneficial to the athlete. By providing muscle support and helping to improve circulation, they can theoretically allow athletes to perform better. In addition, the compression aspect of them makes them a good replacement for athletic supporters who are often slandered. Thus, compression shorts have made an impact as more men wear them.

These shorts are very popular in activities that involve running or cycling, so the athlete can wear them. But they also often appear in the gym, as a body builder – or just a man who pulls in shape – has picked him up.

Compression shorts usually runs until mid-length thigh. They tend to be made of spandex or the like. Most often, compression shorts are worn without underwear, to provide the desired sack and maturity support. (Some men choose to wear compression shorts like underwear under their pants.)

Connection member itch Itchy members may be due to compression shorts

Why should there be a connection between compression shorts and possible itching members? Well, as long as the compression shorts remain very clean, it should not be so.

Unfortunately, many men – especially amateur athletes – pay less attention to cleaning these shorts properly. Many men feel that, if they only wear it for an hour or more in the gym, they do not need to wash them every day. Simply showing it should be enough to spread most of the odors attached to them.

It may (or may not be) happen, but washing compression shorts is not just about getting rid of an unfavorable odor. It’s also about cleaning sweat and bacteria – and fungi.

Yeast

When a man is sweating in his crotch, there is a very real possibility that he creates a warm and humid environment in which the fungus can thrive. This can lead to a bad yeast infection (called male candidiasis), which can cause a man to scratch like a madman.

Yes, a yeast infection can be treated. There are antifungal drugs (both prescription and over-the-counter) that can be used to clean it relatively quickly. But it can come back easily if a man does not take care of it – and is not it easier to prevent it by washing compression shorts after every sweaty use? (This will also help with the smell problem.)

Compressor shorts are not the only cause of itchy members, of course. Dry maturation skin is a common cause, and one that can be reduced by regular application of first-level organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven to be mild and safe for the skin). Keeping the skin of a gentle male member moisturized is essential, and it requires crème that includes high-end emollient (excellent Shea butter) and a natural hydrator (vitamin E does the trick well). It also helps to further strengthen the skin through crème with powerful antioxidants to fight free radicals. Alpha lipoic acid is excellent in this regard, helping to keep skin supple .

3 Tips for Small Business Year End Tax Planning

In addition to setting financial goals to grow your business, you also need to manage your financial responsibilities. One is to make sure you have a strong year-end tax planning process. Failing to do this, the business will experience financial and legal consequences.

Small businesses face many big challenges. Some of them include:

Dependency on multiple clients
Maintain cash flow while paying a fee
Fatigue due to pressure and hard work
Dependence on business founders
Balances quality and growth
While this challenge delays business success, poor year-end tax planning can kill it. Read on to find out more.

Tip for Year End Tax Planning
Every small business owner must know the tax planning and reporting requirements. Businesses pay federal income tax, local taxes, sales taxes, and employment taxes. Any errors and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will start breathing in your neck.

The IRS looks at fraudulent earnings reports, accounting irregularities, and incorrect deductions. It is a mistake to expose your business to fines, fines and fraud allegations.

Your goal should be:

To reduce your taxable income and tax rate
To take advantage of deduction and credit
Here are some tips to help your year-end tax planning:

Find the Right Tax Software
Tax software is an important part of your planning. It’s cost-effective and simplifies the process. Too:

Describe the information requirements in the tax code
Allows quick and secure tax filing
Accelerate refund acceptance
Ensuring tax and credit deductions
Remove errors and mathematical errors
Transfer federal tax information to state tax returns
Attract business data (eg payroll) from other software
If you use a taxation service bureau like UltimateTax, you also get access to support staff. They will help you solve software problems and answer your tax questions.

Having tax software gets you ready. People make the mistake of waiting until the tax season to collect their financial data. Get detailed reports on your financial transactions throughout the year.

Hire an Accountant or Tax Consultant
While the tax software completes some accountant functions, hiring someone is still a good decision. They prepare payroll data, assist in audits, review budgets and fees, collect financial information, and maintain financial software.

Like a tax consultant, accountants make sure your small business is taxable. He will calculate various taxes and propose an accurate return.

These professionals know how to get deductions for your business. Some examples include travel, car, equipment, and home reduction.

The other main function is to track credit changes and annual deductions. The role of your accountant is to make sure you get the maximum refund. They also recorded deadlines for submission of pieces and credit forms.

Decide whether you will delay revenue
Small businesses can postpone their income to reduce their tax obligations. They can use different options such as cash-based accounting and accrual accounting.

Cash-base involves sending late invoices to delay your earnings. As such, the money is not available for addition in tax returns. Accrual involves delays in products and services. That way, you will not be paid on time for the current year tax.

5 Strategies for Taking Your HVAC Online Marketing

 

Knowing how to use online marketing is so different than knowing how to fix air conditioning units at home.

Your company may be the best at creating HVAC solutions, but without HVAC marketing to support it, finding new clients can be a slow process.

However, when you combine marketing efforts with great results, growth opportunities are endless.

While marketing may not be your specialty, do not avoid trying it.

Here are five strategies to use when doing your online marketing.

1. Run Competition Analysis
Before you do something with your online presence, research the way your competitors try to stand out.

What keywords do your industry see as the most valuable?

Do local competitors have strong social media?

Getting detailed and up-to-date answers to these questions will point you in the right direction for your HVAC marketing strategy.

Remember, if you’re just starting to use online marketing, you’re playing catch-up. Finding your competitors’ tactics can help overcome those shortcomings.

2. Always Think About Conversions
Once you’re ready to start selecting search keywords and setting up an overall budget, remember to keep conversion as your number one destination.

Prioritizing traffic over conversions is like distributing 100 flyers and not paying attention to whether 10 or 80 people respond. Getting online attention is great, and traffic often improves brand recognition, but ROI is no greater than conversion.

The better you can make sales, the more efficiently your budget is spent. Over time, this results in more profits due to less effort.

3. Focus on Your Content
One of the main ways to achieve a good conversion rate is to consistently produce new content.

For HVAC marketing, “consistent” means two things – frequent, and in-brand. You must produce enough content to remain relevant in your customers’ minds, but there must be a strategy behind it.

The more messages you have, the better potential customers will get to know you. They will get used to the value and personality of your brand. Over time, this could mean easily recognizing an AC Kaiser rather than a competitor.

Plus, the information will be more accessible because consistent content improves SEO performance.

4. Get Client Testimonials
Another way to increase conversions is to build testimonial pages.

This makes your site more trustworthy and approachable. It’s like taking an old school method of relying on word of mouth and using it in a way that consumers are now conditioned to respond.

Testimonials can be a deal breaker for consumers who do their research. If your reviews are easy to find and associate, there is a greater chance someone picks you than a competitor who does not use testimonials.

5. Consult a Professional
This is the most important tip on our list.

At the end of the day, everyone has their special skills, and is not expected for HVAC marketing to be a common skill. However, contacting a content marketing group is like getting insurance for your online venture.

It connects you to a team of professionals who are ready to improve your business and build conversions. They will have your back and focus on the right strategy, while you focus on providing the best HVAC service possible.

Improve Your HVAC Marketing Approach
When individuals can focus on their specialty, everyone will win.

Let us develop your online marketing strategy into a successful campaign and impressive conversions. It takes pressure off your shoulders and lets you get back to providing quality customer service when we handle it online.
