Trend Thread / Re: Boho Chic Hair Style and Do
« on: November 01, 2013, 10:32:18 PM »
By any chance, are you an Olsen twins or Vanessa Hudgens fan?  :)
Well, Boho-chic style is simple to achieve as it is all about looking fabulous but effortless at the same time. First thing to note is to have your hair layered in different lengths, fits, and textures.  Generally, boho-chic girls like to wear their hair out and keep it long, wavy or curly, rather than straight or short. If your hair’s naturally straight or short, just make sure you add volume to it and flare it out at the ends so it doesn’t look too orderly. Stay away from straightening irons and if you must wear your hair up, leave out wavy whisps of hair around your face. Details such as braids or braid headbands are also po*r amongst boho-chic girls. Keep in mind that boho-chic style is all about individuality so the more personality you bring to your look the better! Go girl!

Baking Questions / Re: can I leave it out?

Too bad, you don't like this aromatic and exotic caffeine drink. :D But no pressure pal, yeah, you can omit espresso powder if you desire. Usually in all baking and cooking recipes with coffee powder as an ingredient, the purpose is that it actually enhances the flavor of chocolate. It usually is not prominent, but if you don’t want to use it, you can omit it. Substituting for freshly brewed coffee depends on the amount called for. If it’s a tablespoon or two, you can omit or substitute vanilla extract. If it’s any more than that, I would recommend substituting hot water so that the final texture isn’t affected. Also, you can just do away with cinnamon or nutmeg powder to maintain the aromatic taste.

Fish & Aquariums / Re: cloudy fish tank
« on: November 01, 2013, 10:12:22 PM »
Just a friendly suggestion, schedule a specific time every week to spot clean the fish tank. Change 10-15% of the water when you do so. And if the water is cloudy, use a freshwater clarifier available at any major pet store. Likewise, don't over-clean the gravel or completely remove all tank water. You'll remove beneficial bacteria that help remove harm*l wastes in the tank.  In washing and wiping the gl* tank, don't use soap or detergents as they are very difficult to completely remove can be lethal to fish.

OMG!!! You must haven't cleaned it for many weeks. Poor fishes.. Well, it's good to know that keeping a tropical fish tank clean and looking good is not a difficult task. First thing is unplug all electrical appliances, like the filter, aeration, lights or water heater, that are connected to the fish tank. Then, remove the hood or top fixture and wipe down with clean water and paper towels. Scoop enough water from the fish tank with a cup or bowl into a separate holding container to temporarily house fish. Gently transfer fish to the holding container using a fish net. Scrub the inside tank walls with an algae scraper or pad. Remove rocks, artificial plants or any decorations that are noticeably dirty. Rinse well in running tap water and let it air dry. Using a siphon, clean the gravel and vacuum away debris at the bottom of the tank. When siphoning, remove up to a maximum of 75 percent of the water depending on how dirty the water is. Remove soiled filter media and discard in a garbage bag. Remove the filter unit and rinse off with clean water. Use a bucket and fill up the tank with clean tap water. Add chlorine or chloramine remover to remove chemicals harm*l to fish that are found in tap water. Replace rocks, artificial plants and decorations in the tank. Plug back in all electrical appliances. Replace filter and filter media. Turn on filter and allow to run for an hour or so to reduce stress to the fish and normalize the water temperature. Wipe down the outside of tank with clean water and paper towels.

Cycling Apparel / Re: Cycling shorts or leggings

Leggings or not to thick tights can do away as your workout clothing. It also looks good when paired with a sports snickers and a baggy shirt. So no worries if you're running with a leggings. In every physical activity, you have to wear your most snug clothes to make it through the finish line breathing (though you're biking statically). And the additional benefit in wearing leggings can be that it protects your knees and legs as you want it.

Gym Apparel / Re: What's best for skinny like me?
« on: November 01, 2013, 09:54:24 PM »
Slim or not, the first rule in what to wear in a gym is to pick a tee, any t-shirt yeah. Gym clothes and t-shirts are almost synonyms plus the main factor that's important is your comfort. Most prefer a regular fit t-shirt that is not too baggy, but not suffocating. Some men prefer to wear synthetic fiber blends or mesh tops as they have greater breathability. Similarly, both men and women sometimes prefer to wear tank tops. Wear shorts that offer flexibility, but are not too revealing. Shorts that are too long can scrape against your knees or distract from proper leg movement. Shorts that are too loose can slide up to reveal underwear on equipment that requires lying down. Since you are slim and petite, a little lower below the knee tights or baggy pants will do. Pair it with a snug shirt that isn't too short and hanging above your torso. Well, I guess you're good to go. Just don't forget to bring your iPod as it can be a huge motivator to get you through that last mile.
