When ur doing an open house...

So I recently did a graduation open house,
I have 5 tips for you! I took note of things I should have done differently, but you only graduate high school once so I'm probably going to have to think of this in a few year, when I have kids graduating! That won't be for a while.
  1. Send out actual invitations that people will remember. I did a facebook announcement and an announcement at my church that morning.
  2. Have a long playlist to play while you're having your open house if you are playing music, not CDs, unless you have a multi CD player. it saves you from a lot of running around
  3. Have a place to put the cards! there will be many cards that day, you will want a box!
  4. Get people to help with the food, it makes it easier on you and your family, ask someone to add to your food. Same with set up, ask people to help, there are some people who love to help!
  5. If you have a Power Point make it fully automatic, saves running around!
Some of these are things I did and recommend, but some are things that I had to do, like restarting things, power points, music, I had a short playlist, and was running back and forth to fix that and eat lunch and talk to people and restart the overhead and then back to talking to people.
use this info! it saves!

Public Relations Overseas In A Chat Box
This is going to be a weekly series, posted on Fridays, this is manly
to deal with friend ships, not dating, all thought I know I might make
my position on that very clear at some point. I decided to do this
series when I was talking to a friend of mine, she lives in Australia,
which can put a strain on any friend ship. I have friends and family
on the other side of the USA that I don't keep in contact with anymore, and when I do see them its awkward.
     So here we go on the wonderful route into how a friendship survived Down Under!

For the sake of us all! Mostly you!

Okay ladies, let's talk summer wear
please for double purposes, WEAR A BRA! it keeps the girls up
and helps defy gravity, helps combat back problems too, if you wear the correct bra that actually supports!
Sometimes the slim strapped fancy bra isn't the way to go, especially if you have Bs-DDs and up. summer tip, WEAR A BRA!!!!!!!!!!
You will be happy you did!

Natural Moisturizers for Hair and summer hair stuff!

from all the chlorine and salt water I go through in the summer,  I have really dry hair,
not to mention I use a lot of heat tools, especially hair straighteners! I use heat protection
sprays, I use CHI heat sprays, I've used their Iron Guard, and their Shine Infusion, both
work pretty good, but for my natural freak friends out there, like me, I found this recipe for
a hair mask, it's a bit pricey but the's products are always available in my house because
they are used for everyday things already.
  • Coconut Oil
  • Raw spun honey
I mix the two together and put it in warm wet hair and treat it as a conditioner it works well.
I leave mine in as long as I can. You should wash it out though, the coconut oil makes your
hair thicker and more the color it is. The honey gives vitamins to your hair and seals in the moister.

also here is something I will be testing when my shampoo runs out is using Baking Soda and lemon juice, I was given a good idea for a cheep good way of cleaning your hair. 
You just just get the baking soda mixed up with water and wash your hair with that, then
rinse it all out, then apply the lemon juice. Your hair will be dry after, but that's why I have
 that natural conditioner! also if you don't have money for the coconut oil you can use
Chamomile Tea. Steep the tea and work it in your hair. It's just tea, so you can leave it in,
it supposed to make your hair really soft, we'll see what it does to mine!

I did find that baking soda can be used as a dry conditioner, you can do the same thing with
 baby powder but you have the risk of smelling like baby powder! and Baking soda doesn't
really smell like anything, if you have brown hair, you can mix cinnamon with it and work it in
 your hair like dry shampoo. If you have differently colored then I don't know, I am blond. ^^
enjoy! let me know how it works for you if you try it!

I just got my first comment, and was so excited, my best friend thought I went mental.
but I am somewhat a crazy person already, hence why I rant on my posts sometimes.
Thank you for the comment!!!!

The Vitamin String Quartet

A really skilled set of musicians that turn popular songs into
an orchestrated piece of music. I quite enjoy it.

I found them when I was just scrolling through Youtube, the
first song I ever heard them to was Somebody I Used to Know
by Gotye. I fell head over heels for them, and actually was
introduced to Gotye, Vitamin String Quartet actually helped me
find music I liked because I didn't have to hear the word at first.
I would listen to the orchestrated piece first, and it's kind of cool
to hear their version of a song. Like for instance  
The Animal I Have Become by Three Days Grace. This group
is not for everybody, a family member I have hates their remakes
but I like the classical side they give. Right now I'm listening to
their rendition of Lifehouse's You and Me and it is beautiful.

Bravo Vitamin String Quartet!
