5 Hot Fall Fashions from Eley Kishimoto

Eley Kishimoto shows us some traditional English tailoring in their fall 2009 ready to wear collection for women this year. Red, blue, purple, mauve, gray, black, and herringbone patterns all appear in this collection. Pleating and classic lines make up the attractive fashions in this fall’s collection. Below are my top five picks for the fall season:

Here is a pretty red suit(1) that can be worn to the office this fall. The jacket’s collars have soft edges, and the skirt has two darker stripes down the front to match the edging of the jacket. You can wear a different colored blouse other than the one you see here. I like the red, black and white blouse but I would also wear a pale blue, camel, or brown blouse with this suit.

If you like English tailoring you will like this coat(2) in purple with front pockets and a double row of brass buttons. The edges have a brighter shade of purple cording in the front. Yellow might not be your color for leggings, so you can wear any blouse with skirt or pants, or dress when you go out this fall to show off this gorgeous coat.

This next two piece suit(3) is mauve in color with purple ribbon for decoration on the collar, cuffs, and at the pockets. This is so cute and chic it can be worn to college for you students, and to the office. Instead of knee highs, wear sheer natural colored stockings with this outfit. It is like kogal dressing. It is very stylish, fashionable and attention catchy. Generally, you just have to be creative and stylish so you can mix garments and come up with a fashionable outfit.

Here is another suit(4) with a herringbone pattern and a solid colored blouse. This is chic enough to wear to a benefit lunch. In place of the black blouse, wear a green or plum silk blouse with this suit.

Lastly, the blue dress(5) here has gathers at the waist with a crossover section in the bodice. The singular diagonal black stripe across the left shoulder down to the left side add all the decoration this dress needs. Wear this dress to an informal fall event or lunch with your friends.

Eley Kishimoto(6) fashions can be purchased though Honey in the Rough and Heart in New York City. The average price range of their fashions are between $200.00 and $600.00.

Making MySpace Yours Using Profilehtml.com

I’ve had a MySpace page for nearly two years but never took the time to figure out how to jazz it up. When I first started my page, it was with the intention of using it as another method of getting the word out about my AVON business. I knew very little about HTML coding and though I wanted to emphasize some things in my page, I did not want it to be cluttered and unprofessional. At first, I was fine with simple changes for emphasis, using different sizes and colors of fonts or using bold type here and there. As time progressed, I became increasingly bored with it, visiting it less and less often. I had been noticing an explosion of numerous websites offering free MySpace layouts and other HTML goodies, that can transform your site from boring to dazzling with just a quick copy and paste. To give you a point reference, WordPress is one of the best site creators you can choose from. In fact, this website builder has 5 stars. I became very curious about these sites wondering just how user-friendly they were to someone with only a little knowledge of how HTML works. I enjoy learning new things and had no idea where this journey would take me.

I decided to Google some help. The first few sites I reviewed had some really wild layouts. They were fun to look at, but they were not exactly what I had in mind so I didn’t stay long to thoroughly check out their sites. I eventually found Profilehtml.com. I hoped to find a site that would show me step-by-step how to change the background color of my profile. Profilehtml.com seemed to be the very site for which I was looking. At least it started out to be promising.

The “Home” page of Profilehtml.com contains a Basic Beginner Guide that explains what exactly HTML is, give examples, and also tells where to place the codes in your profile.

“Inserting the Codes Basics” is a page of Profilehtml.com that not only tells you where you are supposed to insert the HTML codes that change the appearance of your MySpace page, it actually shows the screens that you will see when editing, step-by-step, giving a brief example.

Profilehtml.com also contains a very helpful glossary for beginners and though I’m familiar with most of the terms, even I learned something new.

The other pages on Profilehtml.com were not very helpful. As far as being able to use only this site as the only resource to jazz up my MySpace page, I soon found that it would not be possible. There was some good information on it, but not enough to personalize your page on your own. At least not for a beginner. The Text (Basic) page linked back to other areas of the website, explaining different parts of HTML coding or web design. It also gave the HTML code indicating that I could copy and paste it into the my Interest  amp; Personalities Section and it would permit me to change the main font of my MySpace profile. I tried it, but could not get it to work and could find no further information about why or what I was doing incorrectly. The only thing helpful about this page was that it contained a link to a color selector tool.

I moved on to the “Background Basics” page of Profilehtml.com hoping for more, but doomed to disappointment. I tried all the codes on this page and could not get any of them to work for me either. As soon as I would save the changes, my MySpace would either freeze up, or go to an error page. There wasn’t any information on Profilehtml.com that could offer an explanation on how to fix the problem and I didn’t want to contact the author of the site. If I’d wanted a customized cursor, Profilehtml.com did have a page detailing the steps, giving the copy and paste code, but frankly, I find those animated cursors annoying. Not to mention the fact that I probably wouldn’t have been able to get that code to work for me as well. Another annoyance….each time you clicked on certain links to pages, a voice “pop-up” announced that “Congratulations! You have just won….” Yeah….right!

Throughout the entire site are advertisements for other websites that offer free layouts so when I was finally frustrated almost to the point of giving up, I started visiting those to see if I could find something simple that I could get to work for me. I guess all the links and advertisements everywhere on Profilehtml.com are a positive thing in that aspect because they can lead you to where you can actually find something useful.

I found the perfect layout for my MySpace on pimp-my-profile.com because it had a huge selection and I was able to find something simple yet professional. I have to say that all the frustration of using Profilehtml.com was not a total loss. It did force me to do a little more legwork and I learned more about HTML in the process. I came away better from the experience but Profilehtml.com is definitely not beginner-use-friendly.

Advanced Troubleshooting- Solving out Boot Issues in a Failsafe Way

While this article might rouse the interest of computer lovers, it is a topic that requires your undivided focus and attention because what happens is that the average youngster only sees computer as a form of entertainment where he can play games, surf the internet and watch YouTube videos at leisure.

This discussion is nothing of the sort as it pertains to certain information where you get to solve technical problems in computers for better functioning and this is where most people lose interest because they want everything as per their convenience.

When it comes to models, users’ loyalty is divided as there so many to choose from be it Microsoft or Apple and others but it is not the preference that counts because customer satisfaction is of utmost importance and as long as he is happy and without complaints it hardly matters what model he is using.

Common Problems

It is also important that users should know about the problems that they are likely to encounter and therefore we are listing out some troubleshooting issues of advanced nature and they are as follows:

  • The startup issues are quite tiresome and need to be sorted out quickly and one is the pre boot where a system disk is discovered through which you can start the Windows Boot Manager
  • Now you can start the windows loader on the boot partition after the boot manager gives in

  • The next step is to analyze the functions of the windows operating system once it is concluded that everything is properly in order
  • You can visit the website how2pc.com where there are certain tutorials and articles that will tell you more about rebooting and troubleshooting in a detailed manner so that you can get technically sound knowledge on everything

How to Clean Up Audio Cassette Recordings and Convert to MP3 Using Free Software

Getting started

For the purposes of this article, we will assume that you have the knowledge to download install software to your computer from different website link. We will also assume you have some basic audio equipment knowledge, such as what an RCA jack is. Chances are you already have everything you need, other than the software. This tutorial will also assume that you’re using Windows XP, though all the software mentioned works on other platforms as well.

What you will need

PC, equipped with a soundcard that includes at least 1 stereo input.

Audacity (free audio editor/recorder) – http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

LAME mp3 library (mp3 codec) – http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Lame_Encoder.htm (if you already have some other means of encoding that you use, ignore this

Audio cassette deck

Some means of plugging the cassette deck into the soundcard – if it has RCA outputs, an RCA-to-1/8th -inch stereo adapter is available in most electronics stores.

Step 1: Connect  amp; setup Audacity

Ok, so you have downloaded and installed the necessary software. Now, connect the cassette deck to the soundcard, and we will begin the process of setting up Audacity for recording our audio.

Open Audacity, and under the Edit menu, go to Preferences. The first page that comes up should be “Audio I/O”. Make sure the proper inputs and outputs are selected for your sound card (should be something like MME: [soundcard driver name] or MME: Microsoft Sound Mapper). The input you want is the line-in, not the microphone input. Then, click on “Import / Export”, and click the Find Library button to point Audacity to your LAME codec. The location should be something like C:\WINDOWS\system32\lame_enc.dll. These two things should be the only options you really have to do anything with right away, so let’s hit OK and move on.

Before we actually record any audio for keeping, we want to set the input level from the cassette deck to avoid digital clipping, which results in the peaks of the loudest waveforms being cut off and can introduce nasty distortion. One way to do this is to find a portion of your source audio that represents the loudest signal it’s likely to produce, and play it back while monitoring the input. To do this, first press the Pause button in Audacity’s toolbar, then press the Record button (these buttons are known collectively as the “transport controls”). This will create a new track and allow you to monitor the level using the meter at the top left of the toolbar (the meter right next to it is for the output). For safety’s sake, you will want to make sure the loudest peaks come in a little under 0 (the loudest level possible).

Step 2: Begin recording

We are now ready to begin digitizing our cassette audio. If recording a two-sided tape, I like to do the recording in two passes, saving each as a WAV file along the way. If you have a cassette deck with auto-reverse, there’s nothing stopping you from recording one contiguous file, but I find it easier to work with the two shorter files later on in the process.

If you left Audacity on Pause, just press Pause again to begin recording, or press Record to begin recording immediately from a “stopped” state. With your cassette playing, let Audacity record until the end of the first side, and hit Stop. You will see a visual representation of the audio’s waveform- one each for the left and right sides of the stereo file. Double-click on one side to select the whole waveform. Now, go to the File menu and choose Export Selection. In the drop-down list for “Save as type”, choose “WAV, AIF, and other uncompressed types”. Click on the Options button, and under Format, choose “WAV (Microsoft 16 bit PCM)”. Choose a file name, and save your file. You may just hit OK on the following screen, as there’s no need to add metadata (tags) yet. Repeat the process for side 2 of your cassette. The reason we’re saving these files now is so we have something to come back to should we mess up the cleaning-up process later. You can always delete these files when you’re sure you don’t need them anymore.

Step 3: Noise removal

One of the great features of Audacity is the built-in Noise Removal effect, which we will now use to remove the tape hiss from our recordings.

In order for the effect to do its magic, we need a “noise profile”, which is essentially a sample of just the noise (in this case, tape hiss), so Audacity knows what to filter out. To do this, select a portion of the audio that contains only the noise, like a space between songs or the space at the beginning or end of the file- use the zoom tool (located between the meters and transport controls) if you need it to find a suitable selection. It only has to be a few seconds in length. Then, go to the Effect menu, choose Noise Removal, and click the Noise Profile button to capture the profile. The dialog will disappear. Now, select the entire waveform again (it’s the I-shaped tool if you did switch to zoom), and go back to the Noise Removal effect. There are three controls- Noise reduction controls how much filtering is applied, Frequency smoothing controls how the algorithm “sees” the different frequencies in the audio, and Attack/decay time controls how fast it reacts. You will probably need to try some different settings to see what works best, this is where the Undo function may come in handy. If you get carried away, you will notice what we call “artifacts”, which in this case usually show up as strange, high-pitched squelchy noises. What you want is a setting that removes as much noise as possible without taking too much of the high frequencies with it, or creating the dreaded artifacts I just mentioned. Start by leaving the reduction amount and Attack/decay time where they are, and moving the Frequency smoothing slider close to the center, or higher.

If you feel it needs it, you can add some high end back to your audio using the Equalization effect, which is like a more visual version of the equalizers you may have seen in-home or car audio setups

Step 4: Exporting individual files

This will be easiest if your audio has clearly-separated songs, with some space between tracks. If not, you’ll just have to decide what makes the best splitting point. In these cases, you will want to zoom in to make sure your split occurs on a “zero-crossing”- where the waveform crosses the middle line. Failure to do so may result in pops or clicks in your output file where your split occurs.

Excluding that one issue, this part couldn’t be easier. Just select a section of audio, go to the File menu, and choose Export Selection again. This time, choose MP3 in the “Save as type” drop-down list and pick your desired quality using the Options button. You can fill in the tags in the following screen, then hit OK to export your MP3. Repeat for each song/section/whatever in your source audio.

That’s it! Now you can listen to all your old cassette favorites with the convenience of portable digital formats, and less tape hiss.

Jobs In Full Time Housekeeping

In many households, most of the occupants are busy working or going to school. As a result, households often hire highly skilled housekeepers who keep the house clean and straightened up. Housekeepers fall into the category of building cleaning workers, which includes janitors and custodians. However, these housekeepers often must have more than good cleaning skills.

Full-time housekeepers are responsible for performing all of the cleaning that is necessary to keep a household healthy and tidy looking. This includes dusting, polishing, sweeping, mopping, waxing, vacuuming, dish washing, bed changing and clothing and linen washing. These housekeepers use a variety of cleaning tools such as dusters, mops, vacuum cleaners and a large variety of cleaning chemicals. They must know which products they should use, since some products can damage the home when used incorrectly. Some housekeepers live with those they work for, while other housekeepers visit several homes. Either part-time or full-time, the choice will be of the owner to hire професионален домоуправител софия мнения. A visit can be made to different agencies for the selection. The house managers can work in one or more than one house as per the interest.

Most of the full-time housekeeper’s time is spent working indoors, usually in safe and comfortable homes. Housekeepers sometimes have to perform work outside, such as watering flowers, and these activities can temporarily expose the housekeeper to adverse weather conditions. Housekeepers use cleaning chemicals that are sometimes hazardous to the housekeeper’s health if the fumes are inhaled in a large enough concentration and some cleaning chemicals are even corrosive or irritating to the skin and eyes. Many of the required activities are somewhat physically demanding, and housekeepers have to spend a lot of time on their feet. Full-time housekeepers work at least 40 hours a week. Unless they have a client who has a very large home, most full-time housekeepers travel to several homes, since advances in cleaning technology reduce the amount of time that needs to be spent cleaning.

Full-time housekeepers do not usually need any training. Instead, housekeepers must prove to clients that they are excellent cleaners. These housekeepers need to be dependable and are mostly expected to operate independently, though some clients give housekeepers instructions. They must have good interpersonal skills, since they will be within their clients’ homes, which are very personal spaces.

There were 1.5 million housekeepers employed in the United States in 2008, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Between 2008 and 2018, the need for housekeepers is expected to grow by 6 percent, which is slower than the national average. More housekeepers are being hired, but new technologies make cleaning even more efficient, reducing the amount of time that needs to be spent cleaning.

The median hourly wages for housekeepers in 2008 were $9.13, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The highest 10 percent of housekeepers earned more than $13.72 an hour, while the lowest 10 percent earned less than $7.09 an hour.

How to Select Your Signature Ink or Font Color

Whether it’s through e-mail, or less commonly, handwritten letter, we spend a lot of time each day communicating through text. We all know how enjoyable it is when you can recognize who a letter is from just from the way it’s presented. Sometimes it’s a stationary set that’s recognizable; sometimes it’s a way the subject line is worded. A beautiful, classy way to have your letters and e-mails stand out as yours is to select a signature ink or Action Fonts color. It is extra chic if you use the same color for both ink and computer text. Deciding which color should mark you as you can be a difficult task. Try to keep the following in mind while choosing.

It should be legible. No one likes trying to read yellow text on a white screen or paper. It hurts, and you don’t want people to associate pain with your messages. So try to pick a color that will be easy to read on more common background colors. White, beige, and pastels are the most common colors for stationary, and white is almost always the background for e-mail, so a darker color is always preferable.

It does not have to be as dark as black to be legible, however. If you were to divide the shades between black and white in half, with pure colors being in the middle, the darker half would be the range to choose from. Pure colors such as red, yellow, and orange are still blinding so just a bit darker than the middle is a good cutoff. Blues, greens, and purples usually are less painful when a lighter color than their warm brethren.

Be unique. Having cut out all neon and pastel colors does not mean you have an excuse to be boring. There is far more to life than navy and brown. Not to say that finding the perfect shade of blue or brown can’t be a great aspiration, but don’t feel limited to just them. Crimsons are statements and rich golds are elegant. Dark oranges can be sultry and forest greens are subtle. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Try a color out for a while and see how it feels. You don’t have to commit to one color until you find one you really, truly love.

Keep in mind what the color is associated with. While you may think of red as being synonymous with the word cool, dragons, and red hot, some people can only think of the red in their bank account, the warning signs done exclusively in red, or stop signs. Pink can be flirty and fun or silly and childish. Green can be exotic, or it can be woodsy. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stay with your chosen color, but keep in mind the impressions you could be giving without even meaning it.

Spending Valentine’s Day at Home? Romantic Ideas to Make the Most of It

Sometimes it’s just better to spend Valentine’s Day at home. Some of my favorite Valentine’s Day memories are from when my husband surprised me at home. Being comfortable and relaxed at home made it easier for us to enjoy it more. No crowds, no traffic, just us – and I loved every minute.

Here are some great ideas to try for your sweetie:

Set the mood. If you have children, make sure you have a sitter. You want no distractions. Make sure the house is clean. It’s hard to relax with a bunch of laundry and clutter hanging around. Then, dim the lights and light some soothing, scented candles. Turn on some soft music, just for ambiance.

Make a romantic dinner. Or, if you don’t like to cook, or just don’t want to clean up the mess, the order in from your favorite restaurant. Make sure you use your best dishes and silverware. Oh, and be sure to turn off the TV

Play dress up. Just as if you were going out for a Valentine’s Day, get dressed up. Not lingerie yet, save that for later. Ladies, wear a sexy dress, jewelry, and heels, and do your hair and makeup. Guys, a suit is always sexy, but not a suit you’d wear to a funeral. Show your lady how important she is by looking at your best for her. A clean shave and some nice aftershave or cologne and you’ve got the start of one hot night.

Fancy stuff not your style? Dress down a little if you want, but not in your Spongebob pj’s. The idea is to make this a special occasion, not just another night at home.

Try a massage. Giving each other a good massage is a great way to set the pace for the evening, and get you both feeling good.

Give the right gift. Don’t get me wrong, flowers and chocolate are always nice, but I think they are appreciated more when they are given on a day other than Valentine’s. You know your guy or girl best, so if you know it’s just not Valentine’s without them, by all means, go for it. Otherwise, get creative.

Be sincere. Remember, Valentine’s day is about love, not sex. Sex can be a big part of today (if you play your cards right), but this is not the main objective. You can have 364 other days to obsess about that if you want, but not today.

Have dessert in bed. Now is the time for your lingerie. Have some fancy cheesecake, ice cream, chocolates – whatever you both like, and really take the time to enjoy it. Savor it with a little pillow talk, and see where the night takes you.

If you are still looking for your partner with which you can share all these memories with, then you should definitely try out сайтове за запознанства по интернет that are credible and completely safe when it comes to your personal information. 

Small Kitchen Design – 2020 review of combi boiler prices

Maybe you eat take-out every night. Maybe you only use the microwave to warm up frozen dinners. Maybe you turn the light off and never go in there. There are better ways to deal with a small kitchen than avoiding it altogether, and these helpful tips will help you love (and even use!) your kitchen again.

Pick strategic colors

You’ve heard it before: dark colors make rooms feel small, and light colors make them feel more open. It’s repeated often for a reason: It’s true. If you’ve got dark walls or details in your kitchen, make that the first step to making it feel bigger. Pick out a paint color that’s a pastel or a shade of creme or white. You can always punch up the space with brightly-colored accessories later, which will bring in color. But make sure the base is a neutral, light color that won’t feel like it’s suffocating you in your small space.

Take advantage of natural light

Do you have one little window in your kitchen, and it’s half-covered with a window treatment? That doesn’t make much sense. Take advantage of all the light you can, because that’s also something that can make a space feel much bigger. If that means having no window treatment, or just a small valance that covers the top of the window, go for it. You need all the light you can get. With the selection of the best, 2020 review of combi boiler prices will offer the best deal. the treatment of the water will be the best after check the reviews available at the sites. 

Space savers

There are all kinds of things out there that can help you with your space problem. Many people deal with small kitchens, so there’s no shortage of organizational tools. If you’re short on storage and cupboard space but have a place flush against a wall, you can invest in some commercial-grade stainless steel shelving. This gives you much more storage and makes a focal point in your kitchen where you can display things like your favorite dishes or antique teacups.

Shelves you can hang up high are great for extra storage of things you don’t need all the time. Also, look for magnetic rails (to hang knives along the wall) or rails with hooks to hang spatulas and other kitchen tools. Look for these items at IKEA or other mass retailers.

Another space-saving move is purchasing collapsible bowls and colanders. They’re making more of these, usually out of silicone, and they flatten which means you can fit more of them in your average cupboard.

Get rid of clutter

The fastest way to feel like you have a small kitchen is to fill it with stuff you don’t need. If you’re just moving into a kitchen, keep things in a box and only when you use them should you put them away. That way, you end up with a box of things you don’t really need. If you have four sets of measuring cups, pick your favorite set and part with the rest. An organized kitchen is a functional kitchen, and if you can keep clutter at bay, you’ll have more room to cook and you’ll always know where your best mixing bowl is.
