On Personally Preparing You Own Wedding

Wedding is most important and special to women. Among the common occasions celebrated, I think it is the most well-prepared occasion as per the demands of the bride and the bride's party. If luckily the groom is someone who can give in to everything the bride demands, an extravagant wedding it will be. A meticulous and creative side of a woman comes out during the entire wedding preparation that they personally do or help with the preparation to assure of its perfection. Everything should be perfect, that's always in the bride's mind. I can say this for I've gone through all the good and bad side of preparing a wedding, the excitement of getting your hands on the preparation of your own wedding and the exhaustion of running here and there. Well, it was just my own wedding that I am referring to that was prepared at a last minute when it shouldn't be due to an untrustworthy wedding planner. Can you imagine the pressure?


One thing that should be checked when getting a planner to plan the wedding is to check the planner's standing in that field. Is the planner tested and trusted? That's one thing we failed to do. Preparing a wedding I must say is exciting but exhausting and pressuring. Everything must be prepared from littlest of a wedding stuff to the biggest. The exciting part which I like most (well all brides definitely like this part) is looking for the bridal stuffs: deciding on the design of a bridal gown, picking the bridal shoes, picking the flowers for the bridal bouquet, collecting the something old, something new and something blue and last but not least, picking the bridal jewelry including the tiara. Looking for the bridal jewelry though is easy and can be done at home for Online Bridal Jewelry has all the beauties a bride would want to sport to the envy of her guests. One that Online Bridal Jewelry boasts are the Angel Wings Pendants that are available in sterling silver, yellow gold, white gold and rose gold with and without diamonds with prices ranging from 99 to 700 plus in dollars. Of course, aside from the Angel Wings Pendants, Online Bridal Jewelry also has a wide selection of wedding bands and rings. Come check out!  

How To Successfully Install Beauty and Clean Template?

If you have noticed, almost all my blogs are newly dressed into simple pre-made templates. I've gone weary of the old ones that I myself have designed.

In this blog, I used the Beauty and Clean template for a Blogger blog that I got free from btemplates.com. There were a lot of questions regarding the installation of this template. There were some users who have faced issues upon installing and have gone frustrated after several times of failure in their attempts to edit the 'these and those' of the template. Some questions were answered and some were not.  I am glad I have a bit of knowledge when it comes to html codes and because of that, I managed to successfully install this simple but elegant blogger template.

I would like to answer some of those question asked so I could be able to help those users to enjoy the beauty and cleanliness of this template. Oh, I do love the simplicity of this template big time!

So these are the following questions that I can answer based on my personal experience in the installation of this blog template. 


How To add or change the Header Picture?
This blogger template comes with a Header Picture placed as 'gadget'. You can either use the default picture, which is the picture of the swans or change it to your desired picture. Picture size you are to used should be 808(w) x 298(h). You can use any picture no matter the height but retain the 808 width.

The dates of the blog posts show as "Undefined", how to fix it?
The first time I viewed this blog after installing this pre-maded template, the date of my blog posts came up "undefined" instead of the date. That was because the date and time settings of my blog (this blog) didn't meet the settings of this pre-made template. It is very simple to fix. Just go to the "Settings" of your blog then "Formatting" and follow the date and time settings as shown below.

Now for the menu in the navigation. Lots of users were having trouble regarding this. I try my best to answer the question as simply and as clearly as I possibly could.

How to edit, configure the Menu in the navigation bar?
I don't suggest deleting or taking the drop-down menu off the navigation bar (nav bar) because it will dis-beautify your blog. Instead, why not appreciate its usefulness?
Having that drop-down menu allows you to add links either to your other blogs or online pages or to your other pages from your blog as the navigation bar, as you can see only accommodates four links. I used my drop-down menu for my blog list and other link exchange programs. Now, how to edit the drop-down menus? 

Go to "Design" then "Edit Html". Make sure you check the "Expand Widget Templates" then "Ctrl F" to find the "menu" code. Scrool down to number 33 in the "find" bar to find exact location of the menu and sub-menu codes. Then do your edits and save your template. 

Chips and Noodles

I did climb the 3003 Steps in Mt. Linabo and even climbed up to the peak. It was tiring but it's worth the climb. I'll talk about it later in my Wherebouts. If you can't wait, you can read about Cheem's climb there last Holy Thursday as she climbed up reaching almost the peak of Mt. Linabo.

For now, let me just share this photo.
These are the foods we took with us on our climb - lots of chips and cup noodles. We brought us two liters of water too and four bottles of gatorade for the four of us (Pabz, me, Cheem and Cheep). Munching the chips kept us busy as we climbed up and down. What with the tissue paper? Well, I was so glad I brought it along because we all forgot to bring sweat towels.

PowerPoint presentation surely is one of your final projects in school. It surely is one of the tasks asked by your teachers to be passed before the final examinations. Talking about finals, it’s already been over here in our country but in some parts of the world is yet to start.

Creating Power Point presentation is easy as long as you know the basics. Base on my knowledge in Power Point, which I’ve learned only from self exploration/study and online tutorials, I can create cool presentations and even nice blog designs. Not to boast, I’ve even earned extra out of creating blog designs using Power Point. If you are determined enough as I was to learn PowerPoint, you can learn fast. Refer to the many tutorials available online. But if self study is not your thing, it is better to just listen attentively to your teacher.

An effective PowerPoint presentation requires good essay writing skills and creative PowerPoint techniques. Therefore, being expert in PowerPoint is not enough. You must also have good essay writing skills to create an effective PPT presentation. There are some who experts in making PowerPoint presentations but have poor skills in writing. They’ll just end up creating a slide of photos and stuffs. If you want to present an effective PowerPoint presentation, you can seek for services from experts in both. There are websites that offer custom powerpoint presentation for students and even for businesses.

Online Canadian Casinos

Gambling is not bad but when one seriously depends on it to the extent of making it a part of life and earn a living through it is absurd. I know a few who are intensely putting money on bets. There are some who are even borrowing money just to bet. That’s truly ridiculous. For me it is the laziest way to earn a living, to become well off in life. What if luck won’t pass your way? You’ll lose more than the prize.

Playing for fun is acceptable. I do gamble once in a while. I even went to casino houses a few times but only to enjoy the fun and challenges it brings. When my husband took me to one of the casino houses in Manila, I enjoyed the easy games in there. One is playing with slot machines. It was fun and well, frustrating too because I didn’t win back my bets.

Nowadays, betting on slot machines can be done in the comfort of your very own home, right in front your computer. Serious slot machine gamers should be thankful to the wonders of Internet for they don’t need to travel far to play in a casino for online casino games are brought on the world wide web for every gamers to enjoy. They can simply visit online casinos like Canadian dollar casinos and put their bets. I would go for slots Canada for an easy game. Canadian casinos surely are the safest online casinos to bet for as you know, Canadian government has tough regulations when it comes to online betting.
