What About Credit?

Know Your Needs

Before you can really figure out how to remodel a home, or how you’re going to pay for it, you need to know what your house really requires. Do you need that extra bedroom, home office or kitchen remodel, or is it something you only want?

Determining your needs versus your desires can help you keep costs down on a home remodel. There are compromises to be made, and unless you have an unlimited budget, thinking about them early in the planning stages can help.

What’s Your Cash Budget?

Paying for as much as you can in cash is often a wise decision when renovating your home. While you don’t want to overextend yourself, credit card interest can be a killer on big renovation projects.

Sit down and figure out how much you’ll be able to pay in cash right off the top. Think about putting five-percent of that amount aside for any emergencies that may come up during the renovation job.

What About Credit?

Credit can help you get a home renovation done when you can’t pay everything in cash. In some cases, it could even help your overall credit score to finance some things if you have much credit available.

Another option is to refinance your house or take out a home equity line of credit. Doing this is often preferable to interest rates on credit cards, but you might be subject to a set interest rate that you have to pay over multiple years.

Talk with your lender about refinancing deals for homeowners who want to make improvements to their homes.

Finding The Best Quality Scrubs

You may work in a clinic, hospital or some other place where you need to wear scrubs on a daily basis. If this is the case, you will need to find a good place to buy them. You might also have a need for various other medical supplies such as shoes or lab coats. There are certainly plenty of suppliers of these items that can be found both online and in regular brick and mortar stores. So how do you go about determining which of these stores you are going to do business with? Needless to say, this is not a very easy decision. Here are some ways you can use to locate a medical accessory store.

1. Speak to doctors, nurses and nursing assistants

Your best bet to find a good place to buy medical clothing is to speak to the people who need to wear it every day. Some of these people will buy their own clothing. Others will have it supplied to them by their employer. Ask the people who buy their own medical accessories for the name of the store where they buy them. Why did they choose that particular store to do their shopping at? Are they happy with the quality of the items they have purchased so far? Would they recommend that you shop at the same store. You should talk to as many people in the medical profession as you can find. This will give you a wide range of references that you will be able to work with.

2. Talk to management of hospitals

The people who are in management positions in hospitals and laboratories should also be able to give you some valuable insight when it comes to great places to get all of the medical clothing and accessories you need to do your job. This is because these people will often place bulk orders for clothing and accessories that their employees will be able to use. Therefore, they should have no problem telling you who their supplier is. A great place to buy is Dickies lab coats 

3. Read some medical publications

Publications that are widely distributed throughout the medical industry should have dozens of ads for places that sell scrubs and lab coats. These should provide you with plenty of ideas for places to call and start your search. Many of these publications are also available online.

Dressing In a Saree

Social Media Largely Responsible for Saree Surge As a greater number of female professionals in India work for international companies, Western dress has become the norm. However, recent trends have awakened a greater interest in the traditional saree, also known as a sari. Social media has played a leading role in encouraging women to wear these traditional gowns.

 How Are Sarees Styled? One of the things that has given sarees an enduring place in fashion is the fact they are one of history's oldest garments. Women have worn them from around 2800 BC, and their length and breadth make them more versatile than many fitted garments. Besides India, sarees are also common garments in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Nepal. Versatility in the Workplace Saree online shopping options quickly reveal that sarees are very adaptable for work and social occasions. Some of the best saree options that are available for workplace use are designed to be worn with blazers and other Western clothing. Because of the versatility of this garment, women can choose from everyday and formal options that suit their tastes.

 A Traditional Favorite It is not uncommon for many Indian women to wear the saree out of tradition or respect for family members with more traditional taste in clothing. Some companies that wish to promote a more traditional image will encourage or require their female employees to wear sarees. Others may wear Western clothes most of the time, but wear a saree during family gatherings to show respect for their customs. Festival Favorites Many women who usually wear Western clothing will wear a saree during festivals and other events out of respect for their culture and as a symbol of pride. Indian expats who live in countries that favor Western dress mostly often like to wear saris as formal wear. Recent flash mob activities have given women the chance to show off the versatility of these garments by dancing to popular music from Bollywood movies.

 Social Media Campaigns' Importance Because the saree is so important to many Indian women, social media campaigns that encourage its use are popular. Many women have taken selfies of themselves wearing sarees while working or going about daily activities. Others have shared stories or even taken part in art projects that demonstrate the beauty of saree fabric. The saree is here to stay, and will continue to grow in popularity as a symbol of Indian pride.

I’m so glad that you are visiting me today, because I am super excited to share with you Parrot Uncle lighting and my co-host Karren at Oh My Heartsie Girl to bring you this $50 Gift card Giveaway good towards any product purchase at Parrot Uncle, and shipping is free!  Parrot Uncle has the most beautiful and unique styles of lighting that would make for a perfect match, no matter what your style, to fulfill all of your lighting needs, for every room in your home. They also have fabulous outdoor lighting, as well. One stylish look that is widely popular right now around the world is the chic look of vintage industrial lighting fiextures. They are not only very appealing, but timeless as well. A vintage industrial chandelier is the kind of lighting that is very suitable in both function and form. If I had my choice of vintage industrial lighting, I would prefer something that combines other materials like natural wood or crystals with the metal {mostly black iron, helping to make the lighting highly durabable}, that also helps to create more styles, like Rustic Glam, one of my favorite tones for home decor, giving it a touch of romance. Here is one of my favorite vintage  industrial pendant lights that I find absolutely stunning. They are a fabulous way to light up a room, turning it into a retro and unique living space. While vintage industrial island lights are fastly becoming more popular, by creating a unique  industrial feeling that is both nostalgic of the past, and is a comforting look, that is perfect for the present. I am usually a less modern/ industrial kinda girl, but the design style on this one is seriously winning me over. 
If you have been reading my blog for any length of time than you know it is no secret, that I have been crushing on Crystal chandeliers. The look of natural crystals make the perfect decorative elements as part of the chandelier, coming in an array of many shapes and colors. 
I am in love with this Amber crystal chandelier, with it's warm glow, helps to create that perfectly simple but glamorous look. 
Pendant lighting is an elegant way to illuminate your room. Another one of my favorite styles are Tiffany pendant lights, which are not only elegant but also a luxurious way to make your living space more lively and attractive. Taking more care of your space-specific lighting needs, like gallery or desk lamps, pendant lights can service every area of your home with amazing results. Parrot Uncle, offers many kinds of Tiffany pendants for you to choose from.
