Plus-Size Fashion to Flatter Curvy Girls

Although many stores carry plus-size fashion clothing these days for curvy girls, there are also stores designed with plus-size girls in mind where you don’t have to rifle through the racks searching for your size and everything is generously proportioned. These days plus-size clothes are not what they used to be. There is so much more choice and you can get some gorgeous pieces, items designed to flatter your curves rather than hide them, and clothing to enhance your best assets while disguising your least favorite, and that is something every girl wants to do regardless of shape or size.

Review of Every Yankee Candle Tart Scent


FullSizeRenderI love Yankee Candle Tart Wax Melts and can’t seem to stop buying them! Since I have tried pretty much every scent, I thought I would share my Yankee Candle Tart scent reviews with you, to inspire you to try new scents and discover a new favorite perhaps.

I have an electronic tart burner as well as a tea-light one, and my husband and I both like trying new fragrances in our home. The first time I ever tried using wax tart melts was when I found a bargain set in one of the local shops here in Holland including a tea-light burner and a few small melts.

They were unbranded and didn’t smell that appealing but I liked the concept and began to wonder what quality wax melts would smell like, which is when I started to order directly from Yankee Candle.

Perhaps you live close to a Yankee Candle store or even somewhere like Bed, Bath and Beyond where they sell them, in which case you can simply wander in and sniff to your heart’s content. However, sniffing the melts through the packaging isn’t the same as smelling them burning, so I am going to try and describe all the scents for you, to help you make your choice.

iPod Scams and How to Avoid Them


green ipod nano 8gbMaybe you have seen iPods or mp3 players on eBbay retailing for a few cents and wonder how come they’re so cheap when in the stores they cost many times that price.

Despite this being obvious, people still get sucked into iPod scams. Not all scams are obvious either.

You have to be careful when ordering an mp3 player or iPod online because sometimes you don’t get what you are paying for!
