Thanksgiving – pray,laugh,feast!

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say ‘thank you?” – William A. Ward. It’s the time of the year dedicated to be grateful that we are given the chance to enjoy a life of abundance. Thanksgiving is the busiest day in America, where people travel from one corner to the other just to be with their dearest ones…expressing gratitude at the heart of prayers, feasting, and good laughter.The First Thanksgiving feast was shared in 1621 between the Pilgrims and Wampanoag, in which turkey, waterfowl, fish, lobster, berries, fruit, pumpkin were served. Since then, the wonderful aroma of roasted thanksgiving turkey and pumpkin pie has filled the kitchen of every home on this particular day. The celebration is somehow just incomplete without it…Whatever additional dishes you decide to cook for Thanksgiving, our Bamboo Bar Board will surely help you to be a master chef in your own kitchen. It makes a handy thanksgiving gift that can even be used to display the turkey in an eco-friendly way. Great for Preparing, Presenting, and Serving – What else could you ask more?

Feeling nervous about meeting your in-laws for the first time? Blockbuster movies such as Meet the Parents and Monster In-Laws can provide good pointers, but not everyone is going to face all those awkward moments. You could be dealing with the modern or conservative in-laws, but both have one common motto…to ensure that they will be handing over their daughter to someone who is responsible, decent, and worthy to be with.So, what’s the trick to ace this? Just be confident, calm, and create a good first impression…in short just be YOU! Doesn’t sound that hard, does it? First impression is formed in less than five minutes, but it lasts for a way longer period…hmmm even permanent! “Studies even pointed out that it takes more time to get a hamburger than it does to form a first impression towards someone.”Spruce up a little bit to impress your in-laws! Decent attire is just not what it’s all about. Get a haircut, manicure, and shave done as this really work wonders.  Look into our 4 Elements Full Size Kit which is based on aromatherapy products consist of Pre-Shave Oil, Shaving Cream, After-Shave Balm, and Badger Shaving Brush.  The aromatherapy lemon scent will not only relax you but them as well.A unique and useful gift for any of your favorite man, whether it’s for your father, husband, best man, and even groomsmen!

Black Friday – Let’s get kickin’ with the cyber sale!

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

Waiting in line in a long queue to get the best deals is literally something of the old times. When you can shop AND get the best of the best within your fingertips, why waste that money on parking or the bus or even risk getting achy feet at the end of your spree. Perk up your computer, with a cup of coffee next to you, legs up on that comfortable sofa.. and with a wicked grin visit our website and start your cyber sale shopping.Treating yourself this year (as every year) is naturally a must; as the saying goes “Attend to yourself first than the person next to you” and then start browsing for some small thank you tokens for the mother or father, grandparents, siblings and even friends.This year, especially dedicates its heartfelt thanks to the ‘lady of the house’ who cares throughout the whole year with no complains (well, not much complain). Award her with some bar accessories that personalized and unique like personalized wooden cutting boards or even a groovy iPad cover if she’s a career woman.Well, that is what thanksgiving is about isn’t it??  The act of sharing and loving – and nothing like a personalized gift to make someone happy!

These are the images that will tell your romantic story to the kids, and even your grand children! All the little and meaningful moments should be treasured…..when you are walking down the aisle, the bride’s father tears while giving his daughter away, and even the touching speeches by your closed ones.  For this, taking the right photographs is essential. Here are 3 simple tips to create a powerful image of your wedding photos:

  1. Hire an experienced photographer! Remember there are no second-takes in wedding photography, and having someone who is skilled in his area and who knows his camera inside out will help to capture everyone beautifully with good quality snaps.
  2. Shoot the small details too! This day is full of the tiniest details, from the rings, her veil, table settings, the car; etc which will give the album an extra dimension. These are the real things that had taken a lot of time and care to prepare… you will want to show them off, someday.
  3. Finally, Prepare and Prepare! This includes researching the venue by finding the best spots for photography, and having a backup plan in case of any failure on the technologies being used. (No power failures or run-down batteries, please)

And the Finale – Don’t forget to loosen up and give your most glamorous smile!!Display your favorite wedding picture in our Personalized Aluminum Wedding Picture Frame, that is simple and elegant, yet it makes a stunning wedding favor and even bridesmaid give away.
