A Cottage for a Princess is Haute!

When it comes to a great escape, there's no better place than the Half Moon Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica. I always find it very peaceful and enjoyable in the beach cottage. The view is absolutely stunning, it takes my breath away. The cottages are charming and intimate which makes life great. 

Here's a look inside... 

Passion and Purpose Meet in Jamaica!

One of the most amazing experiences of my life took place at a little elementary school in Montego Bay, Jamaica. I visited the Barrett Town School last month to meet the kids and deliver school supplies. It was an awesome experience. The kids are super sweet; I found their energy and smiles to be infectious. Unlike even the most impoverished schools in the United States, the Barrett Town School has even less. The kids are in small, cramped classrooms with bars on their windows. There is no air conditioning therefore the classrooms are hot. I also noticed that the kids don’t have computers, although a company has provided internet service free of charge.

There are so many things that we take for granted in American schools like a library, computer lab and cafeteria. The school in Jamaica had none of those things, but never-the-less the kids love to learn and appreciate even small acts of kindness. They respect their teachers and school administrators. They were kind to me and the girls who came along. It was refreshing to see little kids aspire to be better.

I plan to return to the school in May 2013 and take more supplies. I would even like to take iPads or some other kind of tablets and Kindles for the kids to use in class. After the New Year gets underway, I’ll put out a request for donations to purchase more things for the them. The school is small with only ten classrooms. It’s my goal to have gifts for each classroom even gift bags for the kids. I know that it’s a noble ambition, but I can do it. If you would like to help make a difference be sure to send an email to me at I believe that when passion and purpose meet its the result of a higher plan at work. My purpose is to help someone else discover their own; it's part of my destiny.

What's Haute in My Travel Bag?

When traveling across the globe, I look for products that offer multiple uses in order to save time and space in my travel bag. I find myself using some products all of the time.

Here's a list of my favorites...

Molton Brown’s Ambrusca Wash & Scrub from its Body Remedies Collection to deep clean and improve my skin tone with antioxidant, plus free radical protection and firming properties derived from the Ambrusca grape leaf extract. I use this a lot when I’m vacationing in the Caribbean.

I’m also a fan of Molton Brown’s Skinboost, a 24 hour moisture mist that hydrates and revitalizes my skin during a long flight. It’s from the Women’s Traveller kit and comes in a .03 oz bottle that easily fits into my bag and its TSA approved!

In my quest to find an organic Shea Butter product with a twist, Sula nails it for me with their multi use beauty balm. I prefer the waxy feel over other products that leave a greasy buildup. The cute little tin can travels with me everywhere. I use it on my lips, feet, hands and face.

Sula also offers a smart option to a quick manicure with Paint and Peel. This two in one duo with color and a top coat allows you to paint and peel off color when you’re ready to change your polish. There’s no need for nail polish remover offering more space in your travel bag!

Sula’s Pulse Points Perfumes are great travel options for the girl who wants to maximize an oil-based scent by rolling it on. Six different fragrances come in a cute little box with directions on how to apply the perfume to your “hot spots” like the neck, wrist and behind the ear among other places. When you apply the fragrance to these pulse points, it ignites with the warmest parts of your body to make your scent last longer. My favorite is Champagne Kiss!

Kerstin Florian’s Aromatherapy Lavender Body Spray transforms dry skin instantly with one spritz. This is a great moisturizer containing Vitamin E, aloe and lavender oil that calms heal and relaxes the skin. It’s a must-use when wearing sandals or flip flops!

L’Oreal Paris has a winner with Voluminous Million Lashes and False Lashes Mascaras. I love the way it makes my lashes pop! I don’t need faux lashes to look haute!

What's haute in your travel bag?

Zygor Guide Review - My Personal Verdict

There are many people who have heard of Zygor Guides, but are not completely sure how they work or what they are good for. After reading this review you will be able to tell exactly what the purpose of the Zygor Guide is, how it works and if it really is an added benefit to your World of Warcraft gaming. Some people read the word guide and they automatically assume that it is a book, but while it is a step-by-step channel through all of the levels it is not a book but something far more effective. A zygor guide is essentially an add-on for your WOW game. It will carefully guide you through the entire game and help you successfully pass each level to its fullest. How it Works The Zygor Guide can be downloaded and installed in order to work directly with your WOW game.

While in playing mode when the normal tutorial that comes with the WOW system pops up so will the Zygor Guide, and there will be instructions an if you still have trouble understanding you will still be able to follow a provided arrow in which will point you on your way. You will easily be able to relocate the guide around your screen so that you are able to have it up as a reference without having to exit out of the game or find some other way to reference it. This is what makes the guide so much better than purchasing a book you do not need to worry about having to read through pages in order to discover what area you are on in the game. The Zygor Guide will present itself no matter where you are in the game it will pop-up the information you will need. The Zygor Guide is perfect for helping even the newest of players.

The directions are rather simple and easy to understand, and as you work your way through the levels and the objectives become more complex the instruction will become more detailed. The Zygor Guide wants to make sure that anyone is able to use their system and enjoy the game to its full potential.

Ultimate Demon Review

You’ve probably read many SEO software reviews over the years. Automated software is always a hot topic on internet marketing forums, and there is always a great deal of debate over which is the best tool for the job.

Over the last seven or eight years I have bought more than my fair share of software, the need to increase your sites position in the search engines and increase website traffic is as vital now as it ever was. I understand the need to post across a wide range of platforms. In my defence, I always try and do this in an ethical and white hat manner.

But I simply don’t have enough hours in the day complete all the tasks that need doing to manage my site and build backlinks effectively. I need some help from some well written SEO software. I’m only telling you this to establish my credentials as somebody who knows what they’re talking about. I was asked by Scritty to do some application reviews, starting with ultimate demon in the middle of April 2012.

 I have been using Edwinsoft’s flagship application for about nine weeks and had been leveraging it’s SERP’s building power to rank a site in the gaming niche. I bought the domain in January 20th of this year and started to add content about 10 days later. This was the only tool are used to perform the task . I won’t go into details about the actual methods employed while using this content distribution application, but when Scritty contacted me to do this review based on my experiences I thought I would be able to give it a fair go.

A Brief History on Cheap Holidays to Turkey

Back in the late 1980's the then largest independent Cheap holiday company in the UK called Sunmed secured some great little holidays to what was then a pretty virgin and relatively unknown new holiday destination. Turkey. Apart from the Turks themselves no one really holidayed there or had even considered it before Sunmed introduced their Go Turkey brochure to the general British public, and although Sunmed Holidays are long gone, in the last twenty years cheap holidays to turkey have developed and flourished into a fully fledged holiday destination contender and positioned itself into the top three holiday destinations not only for the Brits but also the rest of Europe.

 These days you can find some pretty cheap turkey holidays, making this beautiful country more accessible than ever before. Have a holiday here, and you'll find sun, sand and sea, plus great food and culture, all on your doorstep. It's also a great place to do some cheap shopping, as the market culture in Turkey is truly incredible.

 One of the most famous markets in Turkey is the Grand Bazaar in the capital city of Instanbul. Built in 1701 by the Sultan Mehmet, this bazaar covers 65 streets in all, and has literally thousands of shops and stalls. Visitors looking to explore this incredible market on their Turkey holidays should take time to stop and discover all the amazing sights and smells. From the modest stalls in Arasta Bazaar to the upmarket wares of the Kapalicarsi, you are sure to find anything you're looking for in this bustling market. Also keep an eye out for the seven different fountains contained within the Grand Bazaar.

Use Shaun T Insane Workout DVD For an Olympic Body

Every two years there are another Olympics and every two years people see the Olympic athletes' bodies and wish theirs looked like that. Olympic athletes spend years working out to get their bodies and it is hard to look like them, but there is a workout program that can get you on the right track, it is the Shaun T Insanity Workout. This insane workout dvd has everything you need for a complete full body workout. When you purchase the Insanity videos you will receive: 10 DVDs, nutrition plan, fitness guide, and tracking tools. The program uses body resistance for the workouts, so you will not need any weights or resistance bands. The 10 DVDs cover your entire body for a complete workout.

 Also, if you purchase the deluxe edition of the workout you receive an additional 3 DVDs that come with 3 new workouts called: Max Interval Sports Training, Insane Abs, and Upper Body Weighted Workout. These three additional workouts are harder and will strengthen you faster. The Max Interval Sports Training is a system that Shaun T developed for training professional athletes and Olympians. This is an extremely difficult workout and is not for those with poor mental strength. You need to be prepared for an intense workout you are probably not used to.

At a similar level of difficult as the Sports training is the Insane Abs. The first 10 DVDs you receive come with abdominal exercises, but nothing that can compare to the complete and difficult exercises this DVD comes with.

Do this work out and you can get Olympic abs. Final, the Upper Body Weighted Workout is the only insanity workout that uses weight and teaches you the proper techniques for using weights and will sculpt your upper body into the look that the Olympic athletes have. The workout you receive from the Insanity workout is at a level all of itself. It is an insane workout that cannot be compared to any other DVD workout available, and it is definitely a workout that will help you get an Olympic body. Just make sure you are prepared for the mental aspect of this workout, it is not for the weak minded.

Turbulence Training Review

Turbulence Training promises fast fat loss results for men and women who don't have a lot of time for exercise. This is a bold promise, and the workouts promise maximum results in only three workouts per week. Let's take a look at this claim, and see if it really measures up! Before we get to the program, let's take a look at the expert behind the workouts. I've come across Craig Ballantyne's name many times in popular fitness magazines such as Men's Health and Men's Fitness, and even in Oxygen and Shape magazines. So the program is clearly put together by a trusted fitness expert. I've also talked to Craig about his training and education background, and I'll be honest, it was impressive, unlike the trainers with weekend certifications that pop up at large commercial gyms. Craig's experience goes back to the mid-nineties, in both the gym and in the research lab. He's actually led research trials on sport supplements, strength training, and cardiovascular training.

The Jump Manual Review

The Jump manual is not your typical vertical jump program and you will not find yourself doing hundreds of repetitions to see results. Instead this program takes what's known as a multi-faceted approach to improving your vertical leap and looks at nine essential variables of an explosive vertical, which are Strength, flexibility, quickness, form, fuel, stability and balance, body composition, conditioning and hereditary factors and neurological recruitment.

The P90X System

The p90x system is an intense home DVD exercise program that says it can give you a lean, ripped body in 90 days. But it's not for the faint of heart -- or the very out of shape. Getting fit the P90X way means working out 6-7 days per week, with each workout lasting about 1-1½ hours. And the workouts are so rigorous that you're asked to take a fitness test before ordering the P90X system, to see whether you're up to the challenge. What exactly is the P90X system? For $119.85 (made in three payments of $39.95 each), you get 12 workout DVDs, a 100-page fitness guide, a 113-page nutrition plan, and a 90-day calendar to track your progress. (You'll need some additional equipment -- a pull-up bar, dumbbells, resistance bands, and an exercise mat.) The P90X workout system is sold by Beach Body through its web site and via television infomercials. Beach Body offers a 100%, 90-day satisfaction guarantee, though you'll still have to pay shipping costs if you end up returning the P90X system.

Also keep an eye out for the seven different fountains contained within the Grand Bazaar. If you're visiting the famous Blue Mosque in Istanbul, stop in at the Handicrafts Centre directly across the street. This indoor market sells a range of handmade ceramics and handicrafts which will make great gifts. From hand painted silks to Anatolian dolls, it's a chance to support the local crafts industry as well as pick up something truly unique. Plus it's a stunning shopping experience given its setting in the ancient Medrese. There are plenty of food markets and stalls to enjoy if you're into cooking on your Turkey holidays, but you certainly don't have to be a foodie to appreciate them. One of the best is the Egyptian Spice Bazaar, and in fact it is one of the oldest markets in Turkey. Everything from paprika to saffron will be found here in colourful abundance. Although it's worth noting this market is not only exclusive to spices - these days you can buy all kinds of things, from souvenirs to sweets. Outside of Istanbul there are still markets galore, offering interesting wares and plenty of atmosphere. For something unique, head to the Carsi Market in Marmaris where over 200 stalls are selling everything from jewellery to clothing. This is a popular market and Sundays are the busiest days here so to avoid the hustle and bustle, visit during the week when it's quieter.
