    It is common to fall into a dating rut, especially for an online dater. However, Skout has ready solutions to end this rut. A lot of people are regular Skout users and yet, they don’t know about some key features of Skout. This dating app has myriad of features for even the most bored of people. This is also another reason to follow the Skout blog because it is through its blog that this dating and networking app helps its users make the most of it. The unique features of Skout cater to those people on zendesk.com who need something out of ordinary to shake them out of their rut.

    Here are some amazing features of Skout to try out –

    Feature Me – Skouters have a chance to make online friends and forge long term relationships by using the “Feature me” feature. By using this feature, Skout would feature some amazing profiles that would get a lot of attention from all the people using Skout. These people would also become the creme de la creme of the “Meet Me” feature (which would be discussed in the points to come). The biggest benefit of using “Feature me” is not just the attention but also the interaction. Featured Skouters are never bored because so many people want to chat with them.

    Skout Travel – For those who suffer from the most terrible wanderlust and want to travel to the most exotic places in the world, Skout has introduced its “Travel” feature. This is a virtual travel feature that allows Skouters to explore London, Manhattan, Mumbai and Paris by sitting in the comforts of their own home. The feature allows a Skouter to interact with the locals of the selected place, see the posts from the city of their dreams, and make friends in another country.

    Shake to Chat – Tired of checking out numerous profiles and not finding anything to your liking? Skout has an interesting feature called “Shake to Chat” which is there to give a new definition to the word “serendipity”. Using this feature, random Skouters are paired with each other and without knowing anything about the other person, they can start chatting. As a tip, the Skout blog mentions having great icebreaker and openers to make a good first impression when chatting with a complete stranger.

    Buzz – Buzz is a great way to keep boredom at bay and put it to some good use. It is one of the most popular features of Skout and the biggest reason why Skout is so much more than a dating app – it is a social networking site. Buzz is used for checking out the popular posts by other Skouters and interacting with them by commenting on said posts. As engagement grows, Skouters find out about people they would never have discovered otherwise.

    Meet People – The final feature of Skout is “Meet People” which allows Skouters to enter all their requirements in the search bar and find out people who meet all those criteria.

    With all these features, it is not a surprise that users of Skout never get bored!

    If you’re anything like me, work keeps you busy and your social life and hobbies keep you distracted enough that you can safely say “I don’t have time to (insert adult activity)”.

    However, being that I am human and a female, I have this strange, genetic urge to take care of someone other than myself. Yes, I have tried to quell these sensations by taking care of a significant other, but as you may know, relationship permanence isn’t guaranteed. Be it because of incompatibility, lack of reciprocation, communication, etc, there are many reasons why the dream of “happily ever after” is not currently in the cards for me. And, since we have ruled out long term relationships, then we have also ruled out children. Unless you’re into that whole single mom, egg doner thing. But, again, if you’re anything like me, that’s a highly laughable option, unless it’s by accident.

    Now, I’m an intelligent and fairly self aware person, so I know for a fact I am in no shape to be responsible for a child and I know I’m not the only one out there that thinks this way. In my neighborhood, Beneful dog owners seem to outweigh parents. The amount of dogs I see outnumbers how many children I see by a significant amount. I believe this to be because many of us have decided that the best we can do is a pet, or at least test out the prospect of parenthood this way. And, what better pet to get than with a dog? I mean, they’re practically children already; you have to teach them how to live a normal productive life.

    I’ve had a dog as a kid so I know about training, playing, and all that jazz. The one aspect that gives me anxiety is the one thing I did not have control over at the time and that’s the feeding process, my mother took care of that. So, now that I’m my own adult, I’ve had to consider my options. One thing I did remember was that we fed our dog (a beautiful cocker spaniel) Purina. So, naturally I went to their page and looked through their product offerings. In all honesty, I’d prefer to make my pup its food from scratch. In all reality, that is not going to happen and neither is the all natural option as it costs way too much. But, thankfully, Purina offers Baneful, which is their high quality, natural dog food option that is very affordable. Yes, the holy trinity of consumerism! At just under $1/pound, this is one dog food that I will definitely get once I adopt my dog child.

    Now, if only I can just make a trip to my local animal shelter without falling in love with all the cute pups.

    There are other things that you and everyone else in the world would rather do. But, sadly, as adults it is just something that needs to be taken care of. Wouldn’t it be nice if there is someone else out there who could just do it for you? Sure, you could go online on recode.net and try to find a maid cleaning service, but those are expensive, you have to book in advance and you really might not know who you should call or when you may or may not need a maid to clean the house? Well, guess what? There is such a service that can help you out. It is called Handy and you can book a cleaning service with the aid of its mobile application. In fact, over a million other bookings have taken place on the app, so it is something that works and works out well with hundreds of thousands of repeat customers.

    How Does it Work?

    Handy is pretty simple and straight forward. You download and install the application, then you set up a payment method (usually your credit or debit card). From there, all you need to do is select when you would like a cleaning, choose what you need done and boom, it is all taken care of for you. How easy is that? It is pretty straight forward and doesn’t require much hard work at all. In fact, if you have a smart phone or a tablet, you are good to go.

    Is it Safe?

    Now, the next question you probably have is in regards to it being safe. After all, you don’t want to invite some random person over into your home and let them rifle through your stuff while you sit around in the living room, watching television. So how do you know the person is alright and is not going to do anything bad while inside of your home? You actually don’t need to do a thing. Handy does it all for you. Handy performs a complete background check on everyone who wants to be a cleaning service provider. They don’t stop there though. The company also looks into previous jobs the individual has had. . They are also able to look over references and other information that the applicant provides in order to make sure they really are up to snuff and can provide the best cleaning services possible. After all, the only way you or anyone else goes back to Handy is if you receive a quality cleaning the first time. If that doesn’t happen, you probably won’t go back. So, Handy is there to make sure the cleaning professionals are of the highest grade possible.

    Come Back for More

    Most of the individuals who have used Handy have come back for additional services, which makes it especially attractive.

    If you are in the world of beauty, you probably already know about a woman named Doe Deere. She is easily recognized by her brand name Lime Crime. It’s full of bold, cool, really cool colors. These colors are for those who really want to take a chance.

    You might already be familiar with her line. What you may know about is Doe Deere on galoremag, the person. Recently, she say down for an interview. I found this online. I thought that some of you would be interested in what she had to say.

    This interview I feel gives more of an insight to her, as a person. It also gives more of an insight to why she started the line in the first place.


    Well, most of you know that I started a DIY line a few years back. Well, I just wanted to take the line and expand on it. I wanted to include bold colors, colors that weren’t around when I was just starting out.

    When I was just starting out, I had to back due with what I had. Whatever bold colors I had at the time, I just had to work with them. There aren’t too many bold colors out anymore. Too many are afraid to take a chance. I am speaking for these people.

    I want to bring the “fun” back into makeup and beauty. Too many are satisfied with “playing it safe.” I’m not like that. I’m not interested in playing it safe. My Lime Crime line speaks to this point of view.


    It would have to be the liquid-to-matte lipstick. This stuff stays on. It will not crumble. When talking to some of my clients, I realized this was a common complaint. Many clients disliked the fact that they had to re-apply every couple of hours. With my lipstick, you don’t have this problem.

    Our lipsticks are vegan-free. This is a major accomplishment for the beauty industry. To have a makeup line that is completely animal-free is a major step forward. Lime Crime is one of the only products, so far, that has this accomplishment.

    Leaping Bunny is hard certifier to go through. This stamp of approval is big.


    I would have to say Kimberly Gordon, without a doubt. She is the main person behind Wildfox. She started out about the same time I did. She has the same whimsy and passion I do. She translates that to her clothing line. She wants her line to be vintage, yet comfortable too. We both share this motto. Kimberly and I have been through lots of the same pressures; not to mention, highs and lows. We understand each other. There is a bond there. Unless you started out with us, you can never understand. She gets it.

    Choosing a dog food can seem overwhelming these days with all the brands and options out there. I have had pets most of my life and find it amazing how many choices are available now versus ten years ago. Every month seems to bring a new and healthier brand, offerings from a more “pristine” company, or another bargain brand. Personally, I do not buy into the hype. I trust what I have used for years, and what my dogs have thrived on.

    What many pet owners do not know is that Purina brand dog food has been around for many years, getting its start back in 1894 as Robinson-Danforth Commission Company. Over time the company has expanded from a single plant to a nationwide brand, and now can be found worldwide. What this means to me is Purina brand is not a fad diet for dogs, the company knows what it is doing, I can trust that they will provide quality food, and won’t go out of business overnight. I adopted a pup a while ago, and I was able to purchase some of the food that he had been fed while there. All was fine until I couldn’t find that specific brand anywhere, leaving me coaxing my new pup to trying different foods. I do not have the fear of a repeat with Purina Beneful, I know if I need food that the product I need is always readily available and I can count on this.

    Also noteworthy, Purina brands on walmart.com has many product lines. ALPO, Beneful, Mighty Dog, and Second Nature are all part of the Purina family of dog foods. While they each have their benefits, Beneful is one of their most popular lines, and the one I choose to feed my dogs. The kibbles resemble almost a stew, with meaty and veggie bits and provides complete nutrition, no supplements necessary. Sometimes I opt for the wet version of Beneful, as a special treat or for holiday meals.

    Products I trust for healthy, nutritional food, from a brand that is well known and dependable, plus products that can be easily found with variety of flavors are the reasons why I will continue to feed Purina brand Beneful to my dogs.

    Earlier this year, Organo Gold, announced that it was going to open a branch in Turkey. The news which first appeared in an article by the PR Newswire has not come as a surprise to many. The company, which has its headquarters in Vancouver, would not need to do much marketing of their product because it is said that the first coffee establishment in Turkey was opened over five centuries ago.

    The CEO has also pointed out the fact that Turkey is strategically positioned at the “centre” and could act as a hub for the company. Since most of the products that Organo Gold offers are beverages (especially coffee), this could mean huge growth for the company. The company’s Gourmet and Espresso lines will be on offer in the country. Paul Jarvis, who is the Regional VP of Europe, Africa and CIS, would fill the position of Manager of Operations Turkey. In this era and age, as people are seeking to eat healthy, it is obvious that the company will have a smooth process getting customers
    In late February, Organo Gold won two people’s choice awards at the Dangal ng Bayan Awards and the CEO was recognized as an Outstanding Global Entrepreneur for his work at the helm of the company. So who really is the man behind the blistering success and growth that the company has experienced?

    Bernardo T. Chua is the founder and CEO of Organo Gold and is from the Philippines. He has created a name for himself in the multi-level marketing sector after working in the field for a number of years and having producing exceptional results. He started out at Gano Excel as an executive working in his home country and under his management, the company expanded into three different countries. After the company had entered the U.S, he became President of the U.S division. Gano Excel was involved in marketing products that had ganoderma, a herb that is also contained in Organo Gold products.

    Though the company was started just seven years ago, Bernado has turned it into a worldwide success (39 countries) making millions in revenue per year.

    Let’s face it, it’s fun to look beautiful! There’s just something about it that makes people a whole lot happier. When a person spends time on their appearance they tend to feel better about themselves overall. That’s because it’s an instant self esteem boost. They feel that other people are noticing them more. They also feel that they personally look beautiful. Sometimes, it’s not easy to achieve a look of beauty. A lot of beauty products, time, and energy goes into it. Once the look is pulled off, it’s worth it.

    A person can often have a hard time picking out the proper beauty products. That’s because of the fact that there are so many available. A lot of these are cheaply mass produced in factories and don’t help a person achieve their desired look. Beauty products should be purchased from a person or a company that is trustworthy. Good beauty products are made by those who don’t care about making a quick profit. They are made by those who care about helping someone else to look good.

    One of those people is Doe Deere. Deere is a makeup pioneer! There are a few important things to note about Deere. One is that she is a beauty. Deere always looks flawless. Don’t be fooled, however, Deere spends a lot of time to achieve that look. When a person sees Deere they typically notice her bright vibrant beauty products that she’s wearing. She is known for bright lips, eye shadows, and matching hair! She likes to bring her beauty products together into one unified look.

    Deere also likes to help others achieve her look. Deere has her own makeup line called Lime Crime. Lime Crime is makeup for unicorns which basically just mean that it’s magical. Deere sells a large variety of beauty products. There is literally something for everybody. Deere understands that we’re not all created the same and therefore we don’t like all the same makeup. That’s why Deere sells bright colored beauty products and ones that are a little more neutral. Deere sells makeup with glitter and ones without. She wants to offer products for everyone.

    Deere understands that beauty products are just another form of art. Any time a person puts on makeup they are making a statement through art. They are portraying who they want to be through their makeup. It really is an astounding thing.

    Overall, Deere is bright and unique just like her makeup and beauty products. Deere wants everyone to feel beautiful no matter who they are. Her beauty products do not discriminate. They are for boys and girls. They are for young and old. They are for rich or poor. Deere understands that at the end of the day everyone just wants to feel beautiful.
