Alleviate Event Planning Stress With Twenty Three Layers

Are you in the process of or pondering the idea of throwing an elaborate foray? Are you considering hosting a lavish dinner party or event? If so, celebrity Lauren Conrad has some very helpful advice that will assist you in ensuring your event goes off without a hitch.

Though Lauren Conrad is most known for her staring roll in the widely successful MTV television series The Hills, she’s a published author, speaker and entrepreneur. She is also currently in the business of event planning. In fact, she is quickly becoming one of the most recognized names in the industry.

Above all else, Conrad suggests that no matter what type of event you are hosting to focus on the people that will be attending the event and determine what type of theme would be pleasing to them all. Often times party planners will come up with themes that are more catered toward their own specific likes and interests. By focusing on the general “likes” of the guests at large, your event is more apt to be successful.

Another important piece of advice that Conrad has shared with her followers is to ensure that not only your guests are having the best time possible, but to also ensure that you are having fun as well. If your guests see that you are stressed out or seem to be juggling a hundred tasks at once, they could in turn begin to feel stressed for you. That is no way for anyone to feel when attending an event of any type. Read more:

Wen Conditioner Could Be a Hair Volume Booster

Most people have seen a commercial on QVC or two for Wen hair care products by Chaz Dean and have wondered whether the products are truly as great as the company claims. Wen uses plant extracts and essential oils to cleanse and strengthen the hair, and a number of famous women have sworn by the products. To find out if Wen is truly effective, Bustle’s Emily McClure decided to try Wen’s Fig conditioner for seven days.
During the first three days of the experiment, McClure shared that her hair felt softer and stronger. She also noticed that her hair was pretty oily. On the fourth day, when she didn’t have time to wash her hair, she added some curls for texture, but they fell quickly because her hair was so well moisturized.

When Emily went out with friends later in the week, she got some positive feedback on the shininess of her hair. She also continued to notice that her hair had more volume and moisture. McClure says that Wen hair Fig conditioner is likely a great choice for women with very fine hair, since the product adds volume fairly quickly. She also recommends the conditioner for women who wash their hair on a daily basis.

FreedomPop is Closing In on Major Phone Carriers

FreedomPop has made my life easier. I think that most customers can attest to this. This has become the type of communications company that allows a lot of people to save money. At one time I used to have a $300 phone bill. I don’t worry about things like this anymore because now I have access to the plan. I kept my old phone when I discontinued my service with a major carrier. I decided to upgrade with FreedomPop, but I didn’t have to worry about any type of phone bill. That is very interesting to me. I now have $300 in my pocket each month because I am using the FreedomPop services. Learn more:

Some people may not be able to deal with this plan if they need a lot of bandwidth, but I don’t. I have a work phone so I really don’t have a big need to pay for a contract with someone like Sprint or T-Mobile. The phone plans are so expensive with these carriers. I would just rather use FreedomPop. I love the way that this plan has managed to work out for me and my family. I have a router at home so I already have access to all the things I want to play, see or hear without running out of bandwidth. When I am out in most stores there are free guest networks.

I read a FreedomPop review, and I was thrilled by the praise the company received. All of this has made it easier for me to drop my old phone service provider. I can live with the basic free plan that includes 500 text messages. I don’t send anywhere near that amount of text messages.

Some people may buy a phone because this company sells Samsung and iPhones. These are the certified refurbished phones that have been guaranteed to work. I already had an iPhone that I was comfortable with. I checked the bring your own device eligibility and I passed. I didn’t have to spend anything to start using my phone with my Freedom Pop plan, and I believe that this has given me the opportunity to save money. I no longer feel like I am getting ripped off. I am pleased to see that FreedomPop is cutting down phone service for mobile users. The FreedomPop review made it easy for me to choose this company for my new phone plan.

Thor Halvorssen a Man Opposed to all Tyrants

Thor Halvorssen is the founder of the Human Rights Foundation (HRF) and is an avowed and dedicated human rights activist. He has come out in opposition to the socialist governments in Venezuela and Cuba and as such became an advocate for the right-leaning Weekly Standard and Fox News. But Halvorssen has an individualistic mindset concerning whoever is committing human rights violations. Recently interviewed by a Fox News commentator who wanted to do a hatchet job on Bernie Sanders because of his socialistic leanings, Fox News was shocked when Halvorssen not only was in agreement with Sanders’ socialist value system but was an avid supporter of the candidate having given Sanders the largest donation allowable by law.
The Weekly Standard wanted to know more about this unique advocate for human rights and sent a writer to do an in-depth study.
The writer discovered that Thor Halvorssen began life surrounded by extreme wealth. His home in Venezuela came equipped with a sauna, pool, library, billiard room and a servant’s wing for a staff that included a driver, bodyguard, gardener, butler, cook, and governess. His parents instilled in him a sense of extending family status to the staff. Thor was always to treat them with great respect.
Halvorssen rejects the conservative label applied to him by many and claims to be a classic liberal in the John Stuart Mill mold. He is an equal opportunity activist attacking target on both sides of the political spectrum.
He was sent to an English boarding school where he first encountered and then overcame bullying. He continued his education at the University of Pennsylvania where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa.
After beginning his foundation, Halvorssen appointed Vaclav Havel as the chairman of HRF, who served until his death in 2011 at which time Halvorssen selected the Russian chess grandmaster and political activist strongly opposed to Vladimir Putin, Garry Kasparov as foundation chairman. Kasparov protested the imprisonment of the band, Pussy Riot, and was carried off and assaulted by the Russian police. Pussy Riot was convicted of the crime of singing an anti-Putin song, and the band was sentenced to serve two years behind bars.
Thor Halvorssen is a unique humanitarian who serves to advance the human condition against any repressive political system anywhere in the world.

Helane Morrison Starts Her Own Investment Firm

Helane Morrison runs one of the most successful investment companies in the state of California. With a staff of all women, Hall Capital Partners has broken the glass ceiling and shown the diverse leadership not found in many like companies.

Morrison’s trailblazing career exposing economic predators began when she graduated from Northwestern University. She went on to receive a Juris Doctorate from the University of Berkely Law School. Using her journalism degree, Helane Morrison able to write about her experiences within the banking community. While working as the head of Security and Exchange Commission of San Francisco, she witnessed fraud, waste and other violations.

Morrison formed her corporation to shed even more light on the wrongdoings still going on within the banking industry. She is certain that her current position will be able to work for the people and root out individuals and corporations that are deemed non-compliant.

Morrison says she worked aggressively working alongside law enforcement to keep banking corporations in line. Her reach was far and included not only Northern California, but Washington, Alaska, Montana, Idaho and parts of Idaho.

Her office investigations resulted in actions against a number of banking firms, large and small. “Unfortunately, you have people who have no intentions of staying within the parameters of the law.” People have received hefty fines and jail sentences, according to Morrison.

Many perpetrators were turned in by whistleblowers, according to Morrison. “We have had a number of people grow a conscious and do the right thing.” With her new firm, Morrison knows she has to set the example. The consequences of not acting in a responsible and ethical manner can result in some pretty dire consequences.
