Top 6 Best Short haircuts of this autumn

If you want to have one of the best short haircuts of this autumn, read our article!  Short haircuts are on top of the world now. So if you decided to cut your hair – it is a right decision. Choose one of these six amazing haircuts and you will look wonderful.
#1 Pixie haircut
Pixie is the most popular short haircut today. It is constantly changing and developing. At this moment it tends to have longer top, allowing the owner to style it in thousand different ways.  Sweep it to the side or back, part your hair in the middle or wave it – it will look beautiful. It works best with round, oval, square and heart – shaped face types.
#2 Shaggy bob
If you don’t have much time to style our hair every day, shaggy bob is for you. You can air dry it or curl a little bit for a tedious look. Imperfection, in this case, is something good. Bob fits all face shapes. Just make it a little bit longer, if you have round face.
#3 Funky
Oval face is perfect for any hairstyles, including a short funky haircut. It is very daring and sexy hairstyle for confident women. You should be ready for attention, because it is impossible to miss such a hairstyle.
#4 Long bob or Lob
The long bob is a great cut for any face shape, but it looks better on a long face because it shows off facing bone structure. You can part it as you like and change your image every day.
#5 Bob with bangs
Bobs are great with all face shapes, especially on oval, heart and long face shapes. There is a small trick for those who have long face shape:  side-swept bangs cover a large forehead. You can also choose any texture you like.

#6 Sophisticated bob
If it seems you have a very long face, you can easily fix it. Add angles that show off a strong jaw and a little bit of layering, to create some moving to your hair.  Those six of the greatest short haircuts of this autumn for you.

Bored with Everything? We Have All Been There

Boring routines, people, places and things (sigh).  It happens just bored with it all--what gives?  How many times do we go around and around with the same stuff, same food, same everything?  I get it, been there, done that and what I can tell you is before you start rearranging things, telling people where to go, and running away to do something wild, take a deep breath.  That's it, one slow, long deep breath.  Look around your dwelling or wherever you might be reading this and ponder for a moment, you aren't naked, hungry, in a desert with weird insects all around, and someone is standing next to you with a gun to your temple.  But hey, you just might want that kind of adventure or maybe that's a bit much and you will take boredom any day over something like that (by the way that never happened to me just an example).  In the meantime, consider doing something that will be beneficial to you.  Try something that might make additional money, enhance your health, enlighten you spiritually, and keep you out of trouble with loved ones or worse the law.

I thought of how might I break boring routines when I put this blog together years ago.  I considered what else I could be doing in the moment besides sighing about how bored I was.  I also thought about some personal decisions that I made that aided in my boredom over the years.  Unfortunately, I didn't handle bored feelings in the past well and so impulse decision-making came screaming forth and soon I stopped being bored, but I also caused myself many messes to clean up personally.

Boredom can be your best friend or your worse enemy if you don't handle the relationship with self correctly.  Before long you will find yourself wishing/hoping/waiting for you, a loved one(s) or something to change, when none will.  So focus on one or two small things that might interest you to draw you out of bored feelings.  You can scroll through this blog to help provide you with some ideas.

Have a safe and happy weekend!

Bored? Don't Expect Others to Lift You Up

I think an expectation of many individuals, who often suffer with feelings of boredom, is that they hope others will entertain them all the time.  Good luck with that!  The truth is people can grow bored with trying to be everything to everyone who feels bored. 

Sometimes singles flock to the Internet looking for companions because they are bored.  They aren't much interested in anything serious just a casual dating relationship where someone or a group of singles will suggest some things to do so that they are no longer feeling bored.  Once a person notices that he or she is often the one coming up with conversation, places to go, things to see, and so on, he or she will eventually fade out of the boring individual's life.  The bored person may or may not think he or she is the cause.

As we all know, it takes two to have a relationship not just one, and if you know by your very nature you are not an interesting person, consider working on that, because fun, exciting, creative, and intelligent types, who enjoy their lives, will one day get tired of you sooner or later.

You Never Can Have Too Much Education - Bored? Take a Class

A lack of education has kept many people in the dark about things.  What you don't know will hurt you.  As we age, so do our minds and if we don't exercise them, we become increasingly forgetful, ignorant, and rigid about not wanting to learn anything new.  Nicholl McGuire, author of Genealogy X: What to Expect When Researching Family History, shares about a lack of education.  Click here to listen to audio.

The Truth is Boredom Might Really Mean Procrastination

A long list of things to do and an individual prefers to sit around and do nothing, bug others, or whine and complain about how bored he or she is.  Knowing full well chores need to be done, a resume might need to be written or updated, as well as other responsibilities, and yet the older or younger person cries in speech and actions, "I'm bored."

Sometimes boredom shows up in a disguise called, Procrastination.  When you notice someone looking as if he or she doesn't know what to do with his or herself, chances are the individual is avoiding doing something.  If you are that person, take a moment and interview yourself, "What have I yet to do?  What am I avoiding?  How can I be more productive with my time?" You can help someone else out too with his or her "I'm bored" issue. 

A little quiet time and conversation with self or a friend will most likely send you or that person out of bored feelings and on with getting things done today.

Have a great week!

Paycheck Coming Up? Bored, Why Not Plan to do a Few Things Differently?

A change of routine is sometimes needed when it comes to planning where your money will be spent.  Some people operate with no plan they just pay bills.  But if we pause and think about what to do with money, who knows, you might find that you can save money, pay off something sooner rather than later, and help someone else.

Here are 14 common expenses.  Those that don't apply, consider yourself blessed.  Think of ways to cut out some things, sell others, change favorite businesses for lower rates, and do other smart things with your money.

1.  Transportation (bus, car, taxi, trolley, share rides...)
2.  Food (healthy snacks, fruits, vegetables, less meat...)
3.  Travel (annual vacations, staycations, special events...necessary or unnecessary?)
4.  Laundry (self-serve, buy or share appliance, rent, Laundromat)
5.  Shelter (rent, own, live with someone or group rent free)
6.  Entertainment (magazines, cable, online subscription service, parties, clubs, sporting events...)
7.  Utilities (phone, Internet, lights, water, gas, sewage...)
8.  Credit Cards (high interest rates v/s. low ones, usage...)
9.  Unexpected Expenses (death, medical, education, car maintenance...)
10.  Unemployment Savings (self-explanatory at least six months of wages)
11.  Childcare (with grandparents, daycare, afterschool program, stay at home mom or dad)
12.  Insurance ( car, health, residence, life...)
13.  Clothing (yourself, family)
14.  Toiletries (discount stores, drug stores, grocery stores...who has the best prices?  Are you using coupons?)

Other household expenses like furniture, office supplies, children's toys and other things add to list.  If you don't have many of these expenses, consider the following: donations, investments, save, and spend.  You can subdivide those categories with the items you buy monthly, weekly, and daily.  Doing simple activities like this related to your money eases some of the tension and helps with creating a better plan to aid you in getting the things that you really want.  When it comes to debt, start paying off the smallest bill and then gradually pay off the others. 

Shop online?  Use these Coupons, Promo Codes and Cash Back Savings

What else are you doing with your money?  Is it necessary to spend it on certain things?  If not, cut off the holiday spending, special event planning and more.  They eat up your money--literally.  Avoid impulsive spending and leave the useless gadgets on the shelves at stores.

To your success!

Before the Internet...15 Things To Do When You Feel Bored

So you're bored and can't think of anything worthwhile to do.  What do you think people did before before the Internet, cell phones, and portable games?  Following are some memory joggers for some of our mature visitors and those young ones who just don't have a clue what to do with their time.  Have some fun in the real world with real people!

1.  Get off your butt and do some chores in and around the house.
2.  Ask your neighbor if he or she needs some help with his or her chores, projects, tasks, etc.
3.  Offer to babysit.
4.  Set up a yard sale or on hot days a lemonade stand.
5.  Visit your nearby relatives.
6.  Ask some kids in the neighborhood if they want to come out and play.
7.  Do your past due homework or ask teacher for some extra credit. (This works in college too).
8.  Write letters or send cards to distant relatives.
9.  Take photos or record videos.
10.  Play board games (Some people still do this and enjoy it).
11. Call people you haven't talked to in awhile.
12.  Meet relatives or friends at a popular local restaurant or mall.
13.  Take a walk.
14.  Sit on your porch, your neighbors, on a park bench, and relax.
15.  Check out local events (sporting activities, plays, arts and crafts shows, street fairs, etc.)

Spend enough time on any electronic device and you will get a headache and become irritated. Before your eyes get weary, your head hurts, and you become frustrated when your device doesn't work right,  take some time to live amongst the living.  Keep in mind, life is too short, better value loved ones while they're still here.  Feel free to leave comments.

6 Things that Will Make You Feel Bored

Sometimes we bring boredom on ourselves.  We just don't enjoy life, because we settle or compromise way too much when it comes to what others desire while overriding what we truly want.  
1)  Going somewhere you really don't want to go.

People find themselves bored at events because they were never sold on the idea in the first place.  So when they don't have a good time, they look to find fault and place blame on someone or something. Save yourself both money and time and simply pass on the invites you know you will not enjoy.

2)  Talking to people you just don't like.

Ever sit in a circle with family or friends and start to feel like you don't want to be there?  Sometimes there is one or more in the group that you really wish you could connect with, but to no avail.  One spoiled apple can make the whole batch bad.  In time, you are tired of being around them all.  Choose your company wisely!  

3)  Playing games that you no longer enjoy.

When you can't afford to buy a new game, don't feel like shopping for a new one, or have some other reasons as to why you keep playing a game you are bored with, you are bringing on bored feelings. Get rid of the game and try something different to uplift your mind, body and spirit.  What are some alternatives to the game?  What are some genres you never tried?  What are some up and coming games?

4)  Thinking about stuff in your mind that has little, if anything, to do with you.

You can bore yourself silly (and others) thinking about things that are uninteresting, boring, and stupid.  Eventually what is in the mind is sure to come out the mouth.  Ponder on things that are beneficial to you and cast away others' dramas.

5)  Eating foods you know you don't enjoy.

Sitting down to a boring meal can make you feel moody afterward and hungry for something else.  A frequent unfulfilled appetite will cause you to mistreat others, gain weight and have a variety of issues, so watch eating meals that don't help your brain, body, and spirit.

6)  Going to bed when you don't feel the least bit tired.

Tossing and turning all night is useless.  Why focus on making yourself go to bed when you can fall asleep naturally if you wear yourself out before retiring?  Exercise, write, read, organize, watch a documentary, listen to music that helps relax your mind, and do other things that will assist you with your sleep.

When you repeatedly do boring things and find little enjoyment in any of them, you will find yourself battling with boredom in other areas of your life.  So cut out the things that contribute to your unhappiness and celebrate the people, things and activities that uplift you!

Lazy, Lost and Luck - Boredom Will Bring On All Three

Spend enough days doing nothing and you will go from being bored with all your gadgets, the people around you, and hobbies that you will become quite lazy.  Before long, you lose sight of what is needs to get accomplished each day.  You find yourself wandering around, lost and confused.  You have very little stamina, no sense of direction, and most likely are angering someone around you while stuffing your face with comfort foods.  But sooner or later, luck, as some would like to put it, will come your way.  A long period of doing nothing has a way of not only bringing on upset, but good times too, so stay strong mentally, physically and spiritually.

Job

Routines get old when it comes to work and sometimes unemployment comes out of nowhere. It can be a good thing depending on how stressful the previous job might have been.  Boring times can help some come out of constant moodiness.  Just as one grows weary of being at home, a person can get tired of a job.  There is no challenge, leadership is a bore, workers are boring, and there just doesn't seem to be any life at the workplace.  Laziness has a way of showing up in environments like these. Then there are those moments when you don't know if you even want to work there anymore, much less stay in your career field.  After a drought period of worry, stress, and boredom, what do you know?  Changes are made and you don't find yourself so bored after all.

Lost

When one is lost in the sea of boredom, he or she isn't too happy.  The family often wonders what is going on with the individual.  Life just isn't stimulating and oftentimes the bored person is struggling internally with any number of issues.  Sometimes it is simply the aging process and all that comes with it.  Other times it is a negative mindset about the people, places and things around them.  But whatever the issue, even when one is lost, there will come a point when the individual will see the light and do some things differently.  The best thing that anyone can do when around a lost person experiencing boredom is just make life less chaotic, leave that person alone to think while suggesting some things that might get the individual back on track, but don't overdo it.  Making the transition from being bored for a quite awhile in a marriage, at a job, with a hobby, parenting, or something else is a process and takes time to fill up the time with stimulating activities.

Experiencing laziness, feeling at a lost, and hoping for a lucky event are all common with bored people.  There is no cause for alarm unless one's sulking, complaining, or spending money is causing harm, stress, etc.  If you are going through this period in your life, you will need to start forcing yourself out of this rut.  Do a lot of self-talk.  State out loud what bothers you.  Write down problems and solutions.  Most of all, avoid the temptation to want to spend most of your hard-earned money or someone else's gambling on games, fruitless business opportunities and similar things.  Consider this, there is something good just around the corner, but you will need to have the mind, body, and spirit to handle it, so get those areas in your life in shape! Don't be caught off guard and miss out on a quality life experience sleeping or sitting on the couch eating your cares away.  Also, save your money because most good things we experience in this life have a price.

If you are somewhat familiar with selling online, than you should have no problem starting your business.  But if you are unfamiliar with selling online.  Here is an article on Ehow that might help, click here.  This is a link to many places online you can sell items, see here.  Also, here is a resource that can help with finding a niche for your online store.


Now that you have some information to empower you to take action on your business dreams.  Consider the following tips:


1.  Don't use real name, create a business name.
2.  Get a street address from a mailing center.
3.  Don't use drop-shippers who have a history of purchasing defective merchandise.  (You can find out more about this by visiting scam business sites, Ripoffreport.com reports fraud.  Also check with Better Business Bureau).
4.  Be sure to include any restocking fees in your return policy.  (Consider using the same return policies of those you do business with especially if you dropship.  If you don't know what dropshipping is Google term).
5.  Don't reveal any personal information about yourself.  Never mix business with pleasure. 
If you have an online business, don't add additional stress to yourself by agreeing to meet offline with anyone.
6.  Not everyone is honest when in business, so be sure you have money saved up to refund customers, take product losses, handle unforeseen issues, etc.
7.  Costs are low when you ship products yourself.  Always include postal insurance.  For higher end merchandise, don't send without a return green signature card.  You can also learn about electronic signature cards here.

Bored? Examine Your Finances

Take out your receipts, check your bank account, and view those on and offline purchases.  What does your spending and saving look like?  For some people who made New Year's resolutions regarding saving, spending, and investing money, they have already lost their motivation.

Get back on track by noting what you have spent money for last month such as: food, clothing, computer, entertainment, housing, donations, and more.  When you see the numbers, you just might want to cut back.  You will also learn that most of what you bought, you really didn't need and you could have saved that money for something you do.

Think about ways to do things better this month.  You might need to cut back on the random snacking, stop visiting people for awhile, and volunteering to help others.  You will also discover that you might be bored during certain times of the month which will cause you to spend more.

There are apps that can help you stay on track when it comes to setting up financial goals.  Maybe you need to start setting aside money for a purchase, a vacation, a holiday, or something else.  Check out what is available in the app store.  Also, note your goals and post where you can see them daily.

Here's an example:

Entertainment (movies, restruarants) - Last month $100. This month cut by 50%
Groceries - Last month $250 household contribution. This month add additional $50
Clothing - Last month $25 for a designer t-shirt. This month no wasteful spending.
Utilities - Last month $100 contribution.  This month, no change.
Savings - Last month $0.  This month take money saved from not going out and add here.
December vacation - Last month $20.  This month and going forward will need to add at least $75 monthly. 
Donation - Last month $5 (will need to start getting receipts for taxes). Next month no more than $20.

You get the point.  You total receipts, then note how much you spent.  You will use the totals to determine how much you will save, invest, donate, etc.  Consider using envelopes for cash or setting up separate bank accounts for your plans.  To your success!

What I Hate About Being Bored

Do you ever find that too many boring moments only make you feel drained, miserable and you wish for nothing but to sleep the time away?  Boredom can be an enemy when you aren't mindful that you are being idle.


1.  You forget about what you should be doing in the moment and then wish later that you had done those things.
2.  Sometimes boredom is an enemy and you find yourself procrastinating, rather than progressing.
3.  Boredom doesn't always bring the results you desire like: peace, happiness, and an answer from God.
4.  You stumble across people, places and things that get you in trouble.
5.  You find yourself falling asleep.

Looking for Things to Do on Valentine's Day?

Here are some things you might want to do for yourself or with a companion this Valentine's Day:

1.  Check the Internet for local movie, theater, museum, and other recreational event times.
2.  Search for the latest happenings in your local area sometimes there are seminars, trade shows, and more you don't know about.
3.  Go out for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  Sometimes restaurants have Valentine's Day specials.  Ask what the promotions are before you go out.
4.  Download a movie for the family to watch.  Be sure you are well-stocked with snacks and beverages.
5.  Shop at a store you always wanted to visit but never had the time.  Discovering new places in your town is often interesting and fun.  You never know what you might learn or who you might meet.
6.  Be creative, search for something unique to do with family and friends.  Think: new games or devices, arts and crafts, building projects, online shopping, video creation, music, etc.
7.  Take the time to catch up on life with other singles on or offline, family and friends.  You can also use the time to pray together, and/or attend a worship service (see online).

Don't forget utilize online coupons when you can.  There are sites that offer discounts and coupons to local events and restaurants (Groupon is one of them).

If you are shopping online, stop here first and you will receive money back on your online purchases.

Also, enlist the help of relatives and friends if you are having trouble making something happen such as: short of cash, at a lost for creative ideas, need transportation, etc.

5 Things You Need to Know About Being Bored

It happens to everyone and the fact you stopped by this blog says one of two things either you are bored or curious, then again you might be both.    So what are five things you need to know about boredom that many don't give much thought to when they are bored with people, places and things?

1.  You will not get anything accomplished if your only focus is on how bored you are.  Embrace it and be grateful that you have some time to yourself.  It won't be long before your time will  not be your own again and someone or something will dictate much of it.

2.  When you are bored, you are adjusting to something new, something different.  Consider it a needed break from life routines you already mastered.  Soon it will be time to face a new challenge, are you up for it?

3.  Boredom helps with stimulating thought about the life lessons missed, the people you forgot about, and the tasks you have yet to do.  What are you doing or not doing that is making you or others feel bored?

4.  If you are often bored, ask yourself, why and what do you plan on doing about it?  This pause in your day could be an opportunity for you to fix something, tend to an issue you overlooked, or do something else.  When it comes to relationships, you will want to take a close look as to what is it about someone that makes you feel bored around them.  He or she may not be a good match for you.

5.  Too much boredom will eventually catch up to you.  Many people could have avoided much hardship had they not been busybodies, trouble-makers, ignoring signs things are getting bad, and distracted by others who were idle.  Don't get in the habit of doing nothing about your boredom issues.  If you are that bored, seek assistance from someone who might could help.  Also, check this site for interesting things people have done when they were bored.

Hold on to those moments when you come out of your boring slump, notice how you are feeling. You might recall how you got out of our boredom the next time.  Try to remain positive, times like these don't last for always!

The Most Productive Thing You Can Do When You're Bored...

Sometimes boredom can be a blessing in disguise!  The most productive thing you can do when you are bored is to question things. 


Much has been accomplished in the world when someone just simply sat back and questioned a situation, a problem, someone's reaction, a news story, an historic event, etc.  It is through that question that one also finds solutions/plans/benefits.


Let's say someone told you something that really bothered you.  You had a moment during the day to think about it.  You wondered, "Why did she tell me that?"  Then your mind begins to think of all the issues surrounding that person's dilemma.  Too stressed, worried, and busy, the person who came to you with the problem doesn't know what to do.  But your moment of boredom brought on some solutions, so you approach the person with them.  At first, she might be hesitant about what you came up with.  But after some time has passed, she just might take your advice.


When we have much on our minds, but are unable to accomplish anything due to any number of factors, it is during downtime that we can better solve problems.  Sometimes what we think is a big deal is usually not.  There are usually other ways to come up with solutions, but if we don't permit ourselves to be bored sometime, it can take much longer to find answers.

It's Just a Thought by John Maxwell -- Are You Bored with Life?



Bored - So I Went to My Contact List, Phone Book

Sometimes you can learn a lot simply by picking up the phone and talking to someone you haven't spoken to in awhile.  The start of a new year is a good excuse to catch up.  A simple "Happy New Year" breaks the ice and before you know it, you are discovering things about family, business, community, spirituality, and more.


I thought about those past moments I could have called some people a long time ago, but hesitated for any number of reasons.  I personally think the best time to talk to anyone is when you aren't pressed about tackling a task list or worried about others.  You don't feel overwhelmed, stressed and have people and things in the background distracting you and making noises through the phone.  Therefore, you can really enjoy your conversation with family, friends, co-workers, business and prayer partners.


Recently, I found that my perception of one person I hadn't talked to in awhile was much different than what I had originally thought.  I guess with the busyness of life I never really paid that close attention to him. 


I learned that a relative had took a big step in his life that was so great, I joked, "Jesus must be coming!"  That phone call turned into a spiritually encouraging conversation.


I utilized my "I'm bored" time, and ended up being a help to a relative that had been struggling with a technological issue after calling her.  She too was bored, but was relieved to have her problem resolved. 


Another phone call, brought relief to my poor soul that thought there was something wrong with a family member, but now feels better.  I would have still worried had I not picked up the phone.


So when one is bored and feeling good, a brief conversation with loved ones and acquaintances--while staying positive--will do you well and might bring a blessing to you.
